As we saw early last year in the months leading up to it's release, the concept artists from High Moon Studios created some truly stunning concept artwork that helped to redefine the home planet and character design of the Autobots and Decepticons for the Transformers: War for Cybertron video game. In appreciation for their amazing work, the five primary artists for the game have been given a dedicated gallery show at the Gnomon Gallery in Hollywood, California. The show will not only spotlight their work from War for Cybertron, but will also feature some of their other personal work. The show opened on March 5th but no word yet from the gallery on how long their work will be on display-we expect that information soon though and will let you know.
To read more about this very cool show or get directions so you can see this work in person, check out the Gnomon Gallery website here.
