Fine Art: Got A Giant Headcrab Problem?

"Regent", a painting by artist Sergey Kolesov, was a winner at this year's Into the Pixel, an annual competition which "brings together experts from the traditional fine art world and the interactive entertainment industry to display and discuss the art of the video game".

This story originally appeared in November 2012.

It's from Dishonored, and we've featured it here before as part of a larger gallery on the game, but today we're going to be looking just at Kolesov's work. Because it's terrific.

A former freelancer, who recently kicked around a few ideas for a movie project with Half-Life 2 creative director Viktor Antonov, he now works at Vatra Games Studio in the Czech Republic.

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!

    Ahaha what the hell is that first picture?

      Duh, that's obvious. It's a scarecrow with boobs and 2 belly buttons riding a boar to take a crop of marijuana to market. And it's reeeeeally happy about it.

    Lot of the featured artists have very similar styles, or at least feel familiar.
    But dis guy...his character design is next level.

    like all the picture, very good imagination
