Former Ubisoft artist David Giraud has, in nearly 15 years in the business, worked on games such as Splinter Cell, Prince of Persia: Sand of Time, Assassin's Creed and Hitman: Blood Money.
He's now at THQ's Montreal studio, the one being run by former Assassin's Creed boss Patrice Desilets.
In addition to his video game work, he's also done some 3D sculptures for statues, some of which you can check out here as well.
You should check out his work below. It's pretty damn great. And then you should check out more of it over on his DeviantArt page.
