High-res graphics and beautiful particle effects are all well and good, but when it comes right down to it, a game's visuals live or die on art direction. And Arkane's 2012 stealth game Dishonored still has some of the best art direction around.

The man behind that, of course, is the supremely talented art director Sebastien Mitton, who has talked at length in the past about his inspirations for the game. And in case you needed a reminder of how distinctive Dishonored looked, these new in-game shots up over at video-game photography site Dead End Thrills capture the grimy beauty of the game awfully well, snagging scenes from the main game and from both downloadable expansions.
