These pictures are the work of artist Jason Martin. If you've played Mass Effect 2, Force Unleashed II, DC Universe Online or taken an interest in the upcoming Batman game, you may recognise his amazing work.

Martin is an artist at Blur Studios, the guys who bring you many of the gaming world's biggest and baddest cinematic sequences. Which means you never play with any of these lush 3D models, you just get to watch them in intros, trailers and cutscenes.

The following pictures are highlights from his portfolio, which also includes work for upcoming Namco Bandai title Knight's Contract, BioWare's Dragon Age and the Goon animated film.

That Grunt is so good if you squint you'll swear you can see him breathing...
