"Regent", a painting by artist Sergey Kolesov, was a winner at this year's Into the Pixel, an annual competition which "brings together experts from the traditional fine art world and the interactive entertainment industry to display and discuss the art of the video game".

It's from Dishonored, and we've featured it here before as part of a larger gallery on the game, but today we're going to be looking just at Kolesov's work. Because it's terrific.

A former freelancer, who recently kicked around a few ideas for a movie project with Half-Life 2 creative director Viktor Antonov, he now works at Vatra Games Studio in the Czech Republic.

You can see more of Sergey's work at his personal site.
