Time For More Terrific Korean Game Art!

I don't know what, specifically, it is in the water in South Korea that makes so many of its artists so damn talented, but if they ever feel like bottling it, they could make a fortune.

Latest example: Sang-heun Nam, who works at Korean developer Nvius, and whose cheery style is brightening up my dreary winter's day.

Yeah, it's winter down here.

You can see more of Nam's work at his personal site.

Fine 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 concept, environment or character art you'd like to share, drop us a line!


    Just curious, but does it matter if its Korean? I dont see anyone saying 'Here's some more American concept art'

    Not trolling - legit question.


      No, really, I think that's about it. :P

      If it influences the style of the art then telling readers it's Korean seems appropriate.

      Please don't tell me you're suggesting it is racist to point out where art comes from.

        Just relax mate, none of that here. NOTHING TO SEE HERE PEOPLE, MOVE ALONG!

    Guess Kotaku is a gaming site with a flair for Asian pop culture... Isn't that why you are here?

    non of this really floats my boat.... should I get a new boat?

    I really wish they'd channel some of this creativity into a local games industry that doesn't revolve around grindfest MMOs, DOTA clones and e-sports shovelware (the crummy WiiSports clones spring to mind). Seems the talent is there, but the drive to make unique single player experiences lacking. I mean, the easiest way for something to feel "fresh" on the international market is to build it from within an unfamiliar culture, and as far as gaming is concerned, Korea fits that bill, regardless of how hyper-Americanised modern South Korea may be.

    I love how the world of fiction allows breasts to stay completely fixed in firmness and centre of gravity as long as support presses on the nipple.
