It’s now possible to commission an authentic Origin style art piece for your own projects! Famous character, concept and cover artist Denis Loubet is now taking requests to create your RPG characters or other designs for a nominal fee. Denis is the link that connected Chris Roberts to Origin Systems in the late 1980s. Chris had been working with a freelance Denis for concept art on a new game when he was just getting started in Austin. Denis then went to work for Richard Garriott full time at OSI and Chris followed soon after - the rest is history! Last but not least, Mr. Loubet has offered to answer questions Wing Commander fans may have about art or his time at Origin. Email us or hit the Discuss link below with anything you might be curious about. We'll collect your questions for Q&A session in the future. Also check out Denis' website for sample art galleries and updates on his latest endeavors.
Denis Loubet, Origin's senior artist at the time, did the cover art, cockpit art and cinematic backgrounds for Wing Commander I and additional items for Wing Commander II, Super Wing Commander and Armada. He was with the Ultima series, far longer: he was originally hired to do the cover and startup screen graphics for Ultima I way back in 1980 and contributed all the way through Ultima Online in the early 2000s!
