The Art Of A Rockstar Games Legend

Scottish artist Ian McQue has worked at Rockstar North since, oh, the dawn of time. Over the years he's contributed art to games like the Grand Theft Auto series, Bully, Manhunt, Agent and even Body Harvest, the studio's cult N64 game.

Currently lead concept artist at Rockstar North, the home of the core Grand Theft Auto games, McQue plays a big part in defining the look of one of the most successful (and stylish) video game franchises around.

In the gallery below you'll see examples of some of McQue's work. Sadly, like most of Rockstar's stuff (Red Dead excepted) his professional work is under lock and key, but his personal work here is still incredible. Really, it's some of the best stuff we've featured here in a long time.

You can see a lot more of it 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!

      Looks like Sun Wukong - the Monkey King or Monkey Magic to those uninitiated with Chinese culture.
