Fine Art: The Art Of Homeworld. Enjoy.

The Art of Homeworld. Enjoy.

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.

    Homeworld is one of my favourite games. I love the artwork, but it's clearly directly based on the work of Chris Foss (in fact I always thought he was the artist), so I think the comment about originality is questionable.

      The weird thing is that the closer images get to final version, the more they look Foss.
