There’s always a need for great environments. Every game, every cartoon, every story needs great worldbuilding and in the art world that takes the form of environment art.

With this type of work you’ll find all kinds of paintings and 3D renderings of landscapes, interiors, you name it.

And in this gallery I want to celebrate some of the best environment artists out there today. This artwork not only illustrates what great environment work looks like, but also goes to show just how far you can take concept art with a bit of imagination.
