A Fantasy of Geometric Landscapes

Ok, confession time. Unlike what seems to be about 99% of the current population, I am not a huge fan of video games. That doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the near addictive fun they are to play… in fact I almost stay away for that reason. I’ll tell you what would get me playing though: seeing digital artist JR Schmidt design a serious adventure game.

This artists series of 3D rendered, geometric illustrations are the perfect blend of simplicity and detail. With all the visual surprises in each piece, you just can’t help but find yourself immersed in the fantastic worlds he creates. Schmidt has created well over 60 examples of this interesting form, many for the beta testing digital art purveyor NeonMob. You can find some large scale examples of Schmidt’s work at cargocollective or purchase prints at society6.

  1. Nice! But try “Journey”, a PS3 game that should take you close to this. ;-)
