In a world where angry bald space marines are the norm, and brown and grey the extent of most colour palettes, Fable's bright, comical character designs have been a welcome reprieve from the seriousness of most other big-budget role-playing games.

In the gallery above, you'll find many of McCarthy's sketches and paintings for Fables II & III, including character concepts, environmental pieces and advertising material.
