As well as being a great piece of art – and his workshop is well worth a read – it serves as an introduction to our feature on this year’s most exciting game. In it, the team of artist reveal their approach and inspirations, and reveal how they dealt with a change of direction from the Ubisoft head honchos.

Cliff has been working in publishing for more years than he cares to remember. His sub-editing skills have been put to good use on academic, computing, creative and motoring publications, including ImagineFX, Computer Arts, Paint & Draw, Linux Format and Total 911. He particularly admires the work of concept artists such as Doug Chiang, Matt Allsopp and Christian Alzmann, who have shaped the look of Star Wars films and series such as The Mandalorian, Rogue One and The Force Awakens. Even The Phantom Menace's leaden script can't detract from its imaginative visuals!
