Borderlands 3 is out, so tonight I figured we’d take a look at a bunch of art that went into the game’s production.

Below you’ll find a cross-section of works from throughout development of the game, from the earliest sketches through to completed character art. And while it’s not everything from everyone involved, it’s a good showcase of stuff that’ll give Borderlands fans a cool look behind the scenes of where everything in the game came from.

You’ll find links to each artist’s portfolio in their names below.

Massive spoiler first art piece. Nice.

Though, I definitely prefer the art on some of this to the in game models.

The Maliwan troops in particular look a lot better on paper than in game.
