Mario, Board Games, Beer...Deep Space Looks Like Fun

Devon Fay is an environment artist who has worked at Blizzard, Neversoft and Infinity Ward.

His Call of Duty space stuff is fantastic, but it's the homages to Alien/2001 (like the pic above) that I just love. From the carpet to the board games, it really nails that Ron Cobb feel.

You can see more of Devon's work at his personal site and ArtStation page.

    I love that first one. So lush. Nice craft docked there. Epic.

    That last one is packed with references:
    - The motion tracker from Aliens in the corridor.
    - A copy of 2001: A Space Odyssey on the bookshelf.
    - A Wi-fi enabled NES with Super Mario Bros playing on one of the TV screens.
    - The carpet from the overlook hotel in The Shining.
    - An Alien boardgame / puzzle box in the stack.
    - Photos of Ripley and Slave Princess Leia on the wall.

    I have a feeling the holo-chess is from something too. Blade Runner perhaps?

      It's not a round board, but it could be alluding to the holo chess in Star Wars?

        That did occur to me, but all the other recreations are so faithful I figured it would be too if it were meant as a reference to that.
