Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

ArtStation stop: Raphael Lacoste

Raphael Lacoste has worked on properties including Jupiter Ascending and the Assassin’s Creed computer game series. He specialises in what I like to think of as ‘landscapes that tell a story’. His art features sprawling cities, green fields, or stony ruins, but always manage to suggest a sense of place, putting you in a setting rather than simply presenting an image to view.

Here are some of my favourites:

Take Off


A slew of ships rise from a futuristic city, viewed by a lone witness.

The Mangrove


A ship of explorers arrives in a strange new place.

Landscape with Hats


I have to confess I am not sure what the hats refer to in this title – either the riders’ headgear or the stone formations… or something else?

Atlantis Discovery


Two scuba divers explore an underwater city, and someone has left the lights on…

Little boy and his rhino


This looks like the opening scene of an epic tale.
