His Bungie work means he's been one of the more public contributors to the art we've seen so far for Destiny, the studio's first game since leaving the Halo franchise behind.

Indeed, you might recognise the image above as one of the winners of this year's prestigious Into the Pixel awards, honouring the very best in video game art.

Below you'll find a nice mix of art from Destiny, the Halo series and some of Bellbrook's personal work.

This is why I love Destiny. The universe is so rich with mystery and wonder and mythology; it's like space, so big and unknown, waiting for us to explore it for ourselves. It seriously blows my mind seeing the amount of detail they put into this universe, and it blows my mind even more when people are stupid enough to say "wow what a halo/CoD/whatever ripoff".

The short trailers we get from the ViDoc already pose so many questions. What was humanity like before the Dark Ages? How much had we managed to accomplish? What was it that destroyed us? What is the Traveler, and why is it defending us? What kind of creatures now inhabit our old worlds, keeping our lost history from us? What do the ghosts of the world that came before have left to say of their legacy?

Bungie just has this incredible talent of creating this mystery, this enigma behind their worlds, drawing us in so we can discover the answers for ourselves. I feel like their games are this generation's Star Wars; massive fictional universes with a ton of detail and history, waiting for us to unearth it. Truly, they are master-class worldbuilders.
