The remastered editions of the two main Homeworld games are out today, introducing a whole new generation to one of the greatest series in modern video games. So there’s no better time to appreciate one of the things people love most about them: artist Rob Cunningham’s work designing Homeworld’s iconic ships.
Cunningham, who is now working on a new Homeworld game, did some of these images (most courtesy of Encyclopedia Hiigara) 15 years ago, while others a little more recent, as they were for the game’s sequel.
He was a co-founder of Homeworld’s developer, Relic (now more famous for Dawn of War and Company of Heroes), and worked as art director on both Homeworld and Homeworld 2 (Homeworld Cataclysm having been worked on by Barking Dog).
This is some of, I believe, the best video game art around, particularly in terms of how original and influential it’s been, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Fine Art is a celebration of the work of video game artists, showcasing the best of both their professional and personal portfolios.
