Your Eyeballs Will Love You for This BioShock Infinite Art
Holy retro fan art, Batman! This is astounding.
Comic book artist Alex Garner created this faux cover to The Saturday Evening Post, that beautifully captures the steampunk/Americana feel of the upcoming game.
Game Informer first pointed out Garner’s work on this piece, and as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to share it. On his DeviantArt page, where the image was originally posted, Garner explains that he created this just for fun, as a tribute to the style of Post cover artist from yesteryear, J.C. Leyendecker. Everything from the art style used to the game’s two main characters — Booker and Elizabeth — standing front and center, takes its cues from Leyendecker’s style, while mixing in Garner’s own sensibilities.
Another interesting point is where he notes that he drew Elizabeth’s pose as looking up so that it would “resonate her paranoia of Songbird’s pursuit” of her. (Check out this game play video if you’re lost on all these plot points.) He also states that he worked on this little passion project for an hour a day between his paid commission work, for an unknown number of days.
