Myst and Riven

One of the reasons I got into art is because of the Myst and Riven games. Riven was released in 1998, and I still think it's one of the best looking things ever made. These paintings are inspired by it.

These are really beautiful. The sense of light is especially excellent.

Marco, I don't know what "Riven" is ...I AM an old guy... but if it's one of the things that got you "into art", I'm thankful for it.

These are fantastic Marco. I think game art needs to be given so much more credit. Some of it is unbelieveably inspiring. Much like your work.

Thanks guys. Nelson - Riven with surround is amazing! I load up the game just to click through it. Amazing they were able to pull that off in 1997.
