Sometimes you click some art on the internet and just want to get lost in it. That’s certainly the case with the work of Ben Nicholas.
Nicholas is a senior concept artist at Ubisoft, so he’s well-embedded in the video game world. In his free time, though, he goes beyond that, exploring futuristic vistas through the influence of famous artists, or just his own take on what the galaxy might look like way down the road.
His work is detailed, passionate, and has a refreshing amount of variety. Ultra-specific robots, serene vistas, pop-inspired characters—Nicholas’ art contains all of those and more. We’ve covered some of his stuff in the past, but, in recent years, he’s just gotten better and better. Below is just a small sample of his awesome work, which you can see much, much more of on his Art Station page linked here.
In addition to more art, if you click the small “Art Station” link below each image, you can see multiple variants, angles, and alternate concepts for all of the pieces above.
