    Dead Space Concept Art

    This is my first time posting artwork. Here are some artwork that I did for Dead Space. I've worked on Dead Space form day one and it was the best project that I've worked on. This is only but a small sampling of artwork that we've produced for the game. I hope you enjoy.

    Something about the way that game was marketed reminds me too much of Bioshock. By the way, beautiful environments! I look forward to seeing work from your next project some day.

    Been playing the game the past few days, as a matter of fact. These sketches get the eeriness and cold feeling across pretty well. Did you do any of the main character sketches as well? Isaac's suit has this H.G Wells type look, which I thought was pretty cool.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I have to disagree with the Bioshock look comment. We were well into production even before any word of Bioshock came out. The only similarities I see between our game and Bioshock is that there are characters in the game that has helmets.

    My friend Chi did all the design for Isaac. He must've have done hundreds of sketches and designs before arriving at the final one.

    The game was awesome. You really did a great job at capturing that 'abandoned spaceship' look. The morgue scene in the game had me scared shitless.

    AMAZING concept art. Thank you so much for posting, very inspirational. I myself am a big horror game and Dead Space fan. I got the little artbook that came with the preorder, but I wish I could buy a full sized one!

    Sadly, we didn't make a full sized artbook because of costs. There was a ton of artwork generated for this project and it's somewhat unfortunate that a lot of that work probably wouldn't be seen.

    You can check out my site at http://www.imagethread.com to see some more artwork from Dead Space that I've done.

    Totally feels like Alien and it's got a really creepy abandoned feeling to it. Great stuff. I'm always curious when someone's doing sci-fi where they get their references from.

    We did looked at a lot of Sci-fi / horror films when we were working on this game, but we didn't take too much from Aliens as much as the visuals may lead you to believe. The aliens/star wars looked didn't resonate too well with the team during the initial stages of development. It wasn't until we drew influences from classical architecture that the visuals started to pull together.

    I loved the game, finished it twice, then watched Dead Space: Downfall on DVD. The concept art under the bonus features was the best part. I know this post shows only a small sample of the team's efforts, and I am extremely hopeful to see a concept art book on Dead Space. Put that in the works for me, no matter the cost! Great Job!

    I have heard "BioShock" and "Aliens" mentioned in the posts, but you guys must have had Event Horizon running in the background (the reference was awesome).

    Awesome concepts, I love them all.

    I just ordered Dead Space, and now I'm even more anxious to play it!

    Good work!

    We did release a 96-page concept art book. You should have received a free copy of it if you pre-ordered the game.

    We did have event horizon playing in the background in the team's common area at the beginning of the project. how did you know?

    Just got my hands on the art book you mentioned, a friend borrowed his to me. You had a pretty awesome concept team on the project!

    Other reference movies? My guess is Outland.

    I don't know Outland. Is that a good film?

    By the way Mikko, I really dig your work. You have a great sense for color especially one of your latest speedpaint....the one with all the pink color.

    thanks for the post, the concepts are awesome, maybe loose a little bit, but full of atmosphere...
    i saw your artwork at the official web site too and btw i loved gun concepts. did you know the name of the artist who did it?.. i saw some ryan church's artwork too, it's very interesting how it was to work close with such a master? and again the overall artwork for the game created such a sense of the horror and drama, thank you!

    Chi did all the weapon and Isaac designs. His drawing ability is insane! Unfortunately, he doesn't have a website or post any of his work online.

    Thanks Lawrence,

    I haven't seen Outland (a movie from 1981 with Sean Connery), but it has some nice environments that are in my reference folders

    Shame. I would have loved to see his work.

    By the way, who did the creature designs for this game? Whoever it is, they deserve some mad kudos.

    Ben Wanat designed all of the creature for Dead Space. In addition to being a kick ass VFX Director, he's an awesome concept artist as well.

    Man I loved deadspace, but after seeing these I feel a little bummed that the environments in game couldn't capture quite the same flair. Personally I'm looking forward to the day when games try to look like art rather than photos.

    Command and Conquer welcome,
    lay into me as much as you like.
