Happy Halloween… have a great weekend!
In time for Halloween, our very own Lindsay Westcott put together some very evil jack-o-lantern templates. Below you can print out any of our designs. If you’d like to share your carving skills with these templates or your own Bethesda creations, tweet us with the hashtag #BethesdART or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We’ve been keeping a close eye on Daniel (known on DeviantArt as Corroder666) since we came across his masterfully done “Keeper” cosplay from The Evil Within. Daniel made his costumed debut at Gamescom this year to go along with all of the excitement for The Evil Within this October. We asked him to take some time outside of the box(man) and answer some questions about the development of his intricate and terrifying costume.
What was the greatest influence in your decision to recreate The Keeper?
He looks quite disturbing and very strange and it seems to me that he is like the “Red Pyramid” thing from “Silent Hill”, a figure that makes The Evil Within recognisable. I like this weird but memorable image and I just think it’s quite cool!
Another reason is the realisation in general. Normally I only make costumes and props once I have played through the game and think it’s good and have built up a kind of relationship with the character. Then I’ve also got enough models to recreate the individual elements as true to the original as possible. In this case this wouldn’t have been at all possible with just a couple of published images. However, you published a 3D model of Boxman on Sketchfab for Halloween last year, with which I could construct and recreate everything around it.
Head: The framework is made of hard foam-board, the fittings are made of “Worbla’s Finest Art”, a cycling helmet was also used. In order to see I installed a “PlayStation Vita” with camera behind the upper digit wheel. A camera films the exterior and I virtually see, through the PS Vita, what’s “happening” outside.
Barbed wire: I made the barbed wire out of “Worbla” leftovers, which I melted and rolled into wires. There’s over 25 metres in all.
Rucksack: The foundation framework is made of styrodur boards. In addition I used a corrugated foil sheet and “Worbla” for the fittings.
Meat tenderizer: For this I cut styrodur into the basic shape of the hammer head. I used a cardboard tube for the handle and encased everything in “Worbla”.
Other: I also used imitation leather, a welder’s apron, acid-protective gloves and of course various paints.
As the weather gets cooler and the convention season dies down, we look to those with crafty hands to create works of art during the colder months. This week we’re showing off artwork we’ve seen from Fallout New Vegas, The Evil Within, and Dishonored.
Have a great weekend!
We’re coming out of a busy convention weekend featuring PAX Prime, DragonCon, and FanExpo, and that means lots of creative and wonderful cosplay.
Taking the lead in all cosplays would have to be the incredible Skyrim work done by Sedulous Studios for DragonCon. They created a full size Alduin to complement the rest of the their Skyrim troupe (See video blog above).
Artistry also takes over and invades our offices! Nia Watkins was kind enough to send Harvey and co at Arkane a handmade Outsider. He now sits proudly in the lobby welcoming all that enter Arkane Lyon.
See all the new artwork, stitches, suits of armor, and more in our gallery below. See yours next time by sending email@example.com an email or by using #BethesdArt when you post on your channels.
There’s certainly no “free Willy” in TheWhaleOilKing’s perfectly constructed Lego Whaling Trawler above. From plastic to painting, we show off some of this week’s incredible artwork spanning multiple titles including Fallout New Vegas, Wolfenstein: The New Order, and more Dishonored. Then we have some cosplay coming from DeviantArt and San Diego Comic Con.
Check out the album below to see what talent we’ve found inspiring. We dont’ want to stop now! Send us your work (whatever it may be*) by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by social media (#BethesdArt).
*By “whatever it may be” we mean nothing graphic. Keep it SFW.
We’re very excited to share news that as a part of Xbox’s Games with Gold campaign, Dishonored will be free to download August 16th – August 31st to anyone with an Xbox LIVE Gold account!

And thanks to biohackerCG for having the perfect fan art to accommodate this headline!
Nothing stands out in an art piece more than someone’s face missing! That may not be entirely true as we see plenty of amazing artwork and cosplay complete with faces, but we certainly were paying attention to the DOOM piece Brock Hofer sent to us above.
See more faceful and faceless imagery below as we feature plenty of amazing art pieces from Dishonored, Skyrim, and DOOM. If you have some art of your own, send it to us to share using #BethesdArt on Twitter and Instagram or to email@example.com.
