His work is well regarded as having a vivid style that has influenced the visual style of the games he has worked for. While you might not have recognised his name, you have almost certainly seen some of his pieces.

Wayne England did a great job at realising the worlds and characters we have all been playing with. He is survived by his wife and children and I am sure will be sorely missed by the gaming community.

Do you recognise Wayne England’s art? What’s your favourite piece of his?
