Nikolay Lobzov is a Russian painter and digital artist based in Moscow who has been paying homage to games he loves with amazing oil on canvas paintings of classic titles like Halo, Half-Life 2 and Soul Calibur.
From the texture of the paint to the contrast in the medium itself, these artworks are a fun and creative ‘fan art’ tribute to video games many of us grew up playing. To see more art (both digital and non-digital) check out Lobzov’s portfolios at links below.
