The Art Of Mass Effect: Andromeda

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!

Here is a massive collection—one of the biggest we’ve run in a long time—of concept, character and level art from the latest Mass Effect game.

Some of those whose art is being shown, like Senior Concept Artist Ben Lo, have had their work featured on Kotaku before. And while this isn’t every piece ever done for the game, it’s a wide range of material that should give you a great insight into what went into the making of Andromeda.

Like I said, it’s not often we get to feature so much art from so many people involved in the making of a game, so enjoy. Think of this as a coffee table art book for those without coffee tables.

Even with the animation glitches I do love the sense of wonder and exploration the art and visuals of the game present. Great change from the previous games which quickly reused assets like crazy.
