You're in for a treat today. Today, we're looking at a collection of Halo 4 art by Nicolas "Sparth" Bouvier, aka one of the most talented concept artists in the world, regardless of the industry.

Sparth's ability to convey not just the look of a sci-fi setting but its mood is legendary, so it was a boon for 343 that they were able to get him to help out on Halo 4.

Most of these images are enormous environmental scenes, and nearly every one succeeds in making you feel the place, and actually see the motion.

You can see more of Sparth's art on his personal site, and you can purchase a book collecting some of his best stuff here.

Oh, and this Halo 4 stuff? It's the tip of the iceberg as far as his contributions go. If you pick up the game's big hardcover art book, it's wall-to-wall with images like this.

DISCUSSION

Great concept artist? Yeah... World's Greatest?..... I don't think so. what merits his "world greatness"? there are more artists that have done what he's done and then some, Syd Mead, Yoshitaka Amano (Final Fantasy) , Ayami Kojima (Castlevania), Carlo Arellano(World of Warcraft, Resistance the fall of man) , Hyung Tae Kim (Magna Carta, World of Genesis)... What about them?

Sparth's good, but world great? ... Nice plug btw to sell his art book.
