    If you enjoyed the look of Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as much as I did, we have, in large part, Bethesda Game Studios concept artist Adam Adamowicz to thank.

    Unfortunately, he’s no longer with us.

    Adamowicz reportedly passed away earlier this week, the tragic result of a battle with cancer. He was 42.

    There’s an informative and touching eulogy by a fellow concept artist at Awesome Robo, which includes plenty of Adamowicz’s art.

    Didn't know much about him until recently. Though it's still really depressing. I recently lost an uncle to cancer after taking care of him for about a year. So, I guess I'll also echo this sentiment: @DoctorLazy said:

    He didn't die. He just left for a new job. Jesus and God and Hercules all wanted him to come and design their new places.

    Sad news. The visual design in Fallout 3 is certainly one of its highlights.

    I'm that person that will buy a collectors edition for the art book (I've never played Bioshock 2, but I bought that CE because of the magnificent art book included) and I have to say, as a lover of game art and an artist myself, the art book included in the Fallout 3 Lunchbox made that whole package worthwhile. This is a sad day, the industry has lost a unique and creative powerhouse.

    Pretty much this. I lost a grandfather to cancer, someone from my high school recently died of cancer, this guy...

    There was a girl, somewhere, who found something new in the way of curing cancer but I doubt it would really make any headway. It would cut too much into the profits of the men who make so much off of cancer treatments every day.

    That is incredibly sad... No decent human being should die that young.

    Never thought I'd visit GiantBomb to become saddened.

    My thoughts go out to his family, friends, and Bethesda.
