Update #54

You’re cordially invited to ...

We’re really proud of the Shadowrun Returns art team and excited that they have the opportunity to show off some of their work with an art show at the Raygun Lounge on Capitol Hill in Seattle. The show includes a large selection of art and concepts from the game as well as personal contributions by members of the art team.

If you’re in the Seattle area, come join us tomorrow night starting at 6pm for the opening of the show! Make sure to check out the pieces down the street at Gamma Ray Games, too.

  • The Art of Shadowrun Returns 
  • July 11, 2013 
  • 6pm - 9pm @ The RayGun Lounge 
  • 501 E Pine Street - Seattle, WA 98122 

Can’t make it tomorrow? The show will be viewable through August 7. Here are just a few pieces that are in the show.

The Seamstresses Union – Echo Chernik

Harlequin - David Nash

Drek – Adeline Ducker

      I really hope this art will become downloadable as high res backgrounds, and preferably not by posting on NSAbook.

      Nice I guess, too far for most to see.
      Guess no art work was needed for the delay.

      Is what I say if I lived in Seattle or had an unlimited well of income to pay for a plane ticket and hotel.

      Sad that I won't be able to make it there, but have a blast! The Harebrained crew deserves a grand celebration after all of the work required to bring Shadowrun Returns to life.

      P.S. Someone heckle Mitch a bit on my behalf! :)

      Creator Bieeanda on July 10, 2013

      That rendition of Harlequin reminds me of a small-parts actor by name of Nigel Bennett. He's got a history of playing inscrutable immortals too, come to think of it...
