Yeah, I usually post art from recent games here on Fine Art, but sometimes I like to look back and get a little retrospective. Today will be one of those days, as we're showcasing the work of Rob Cunningham on seminal space strategy game Homeworld.
Which is only one of my favourite, and certainly visually striking, games of all time.
Cunningham, who is now working at Blackbird Interactive on Hardware, did some of these images (most courtesy of Encyclopedia Hiigara) fifteen years ago, while others a little more recent, as they were for the game's sequel.
He was a co-founder of Homeworld's developer, Relic (now more famous for Dawn of War and Company of Heroes), and worked as art director on both Homeworld and Homeworld 2 (Homeworld Cataclysm having been worked on by Barking Dog).
This is some of, I believe, the best video game art around, particularly in terms of how original and influential it's been, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
