Our science fiction artist this week hails from Jamestown, New York where he works as a concept artist and illustrator. Christopher Balaskas is the art director for an unannounced indie PC MMORPG and the concept artist for the upcoming VR game “FORM” by Charm Games.

Below is a small collection of his work. Each image links back to the site of origin. Enjoy!

Exotic landscapes on distant alien planets, Christopher’s concept work captures the attention and pulls the viewer deep into his awesome worlds.

You have deep space exploration, cities of industry, desert planets, and weird fart-powered aliens. I mean, as a science fiction fan, what more do you want?! And because these paintings are so well done, it’s easy to disappear into your own imagination tethered to the artist’s eye. And that is the trademark of a brilliant artist. They give you a window into their minds and sometimes there is no glass panel to keep you from falling through.
