    Farewell Adam Adamowicz: The Conceptual Art Machine Behind FallOut 3 and Skyrim

    Farewell Adam Adamowicz: The Conceptual Art Machine Behind FallOut 3 and Skyrim

    LINK:http://www.awesome-robo.com/2012/02/...sual-mind.html

    This article about the late Adam Adamowicz, a conceptual artist on Fallout 3 and Skyrim, just blew me away. It is so inspirational. I hope someday I could be half as dedicated and talented as he was. Really a good read and worth a look.

    Really? I thought Ray Lederer was the Ca machine for Bethesda.

    He left too soon!

    I didn't know he did work on Skyrim as well. Most of the concept art I've seen were done by Ray L.

    Amazing work from this gentleman. Very sad he was taken so soon too. I saw a bumper sticker recently that made me smile. It said "Fu%k Cancer" (with out my censorship).

    Pretty much sums up my feeling too!

    His work on fallout was genius. He thought pretty far outside the box. There are not enough artist set out to commit to weird ideas.
