Fine ArtFine ArtFine Art is a celebration of the work of video game artists, showcasing the best of both their professional and personal portfolios. If you’re in the business and have some art you’d like to share, get in touch!

We’ve featured the design work of studio SIXMOREVODKA a ton of times here on Fine Art, but tonight let’s look at something they’ve made for themselves, instead of for somebody else. (They’ve worked with companies like Riot, Guerrilla Games, EA, Nike and Activision Blizzard.)

Degenesis is a free-to-play RPG (a tabletop one, not a video game one, though you can play it online) that the studio has been running since 2014, set in a universe where our world has ended and the survivors have had to rebuild, only to then end up fighting each other.

Below you’ll find a ton of art they’ve made for the game over the years, with many more up for perusal on their ArtStation page.

WOW! This looks super rad. Back before my group started playing D&D, we almost made up our own Post-Apocalyptical RPG, based on the idea that Magic came back into the world and sparked a massive Zombie plague. However, none of us had actually played a TTRPG at the time, so we decided to start with a well known system first and then just never went back.

This has such a cool vibe, it feel somewhat similar to what was in my mind back when we were working on our idea.
