Environment artwork made by legendary artist, Sparth aka Nicolas Bouvier. I love the colors in this piece and the brilliant use of the outline tool for the people and their shadows. Sparth was the Lead Concept Artist for Halo 4, and he has worked on Assassin’s Creed, Prince of Persia – Warrior Within, Rage, among others and has a jaw-dropping art book called Structura. We’re both honored that he likes drawing with Hexels :)

WATERBLOOD

 “WATER TEMPLE!!! BLOOD TEMPLE!!!” another radical Hexels piece from FEZ creator, Phil Fish! I love the duality of this one.
