We have many talented artists at our studio, and are excited to bring you another Artist Spotlight! This week, we’re showcasing the work of Human Head Senior Artist Brian Pelletier. He’s created many great pieces in his 25-year career as a games artist, but we’ve narrowed it down to four of his favorites.

Hulk

“The Hulk painting was done years ago as a personal project and inspired while working on Marvel games. I was experimenting with Photoshop digital painting techniques and with this illustration I was going for the look of traditional media. This digital painting was created with similar techniques I would use for an oil and acrylic painting.”

Titan

“This was a digital speed painting done while being part of a community that would create art based on different subject matter each week. The deadline was fast approaching for the week and this was painted within a couple hours to get it in on time.”

Comic Character

“While collaborating with a comic book writer, these character designs were created for a new comic book with a female lead character. I penciled two full issues but the book was ultimately never published. “

Dragonrace

“A concept illustration resembling a screenshot for a dragon racing game that never came to be. The mountain background was created from a mash-up of photos that I applied Photoshop filters to and then painted over to give it a fantastic look.”

We love them all, but do you have a favorite? Let us know in the comments!
