If (like me) BioShock was your game of last year, then this fan made artwork may just help tide you over until the prequel, BioShock 2, starts to propagate the web with official art and news. Created by Ben Mauro as part of his Architecture course, which concentrated on the scenes and environments, the artwork paints a very organic and familiar scene.

Keeping the same steam-punk feel from the original game, the pictures show Mauro’s vision of BioShock 2 — giant metal whale and all.

The pictures could be any old industrial environment, until you spot the iconic Big Daddy, from then on, the pictures take on a much more familiar tone. Imagining little sisters innocently wondering around, Andrew Ryan building his empire or Dr. Tennenbaum nearing completion of her research into ADAM — I can almost taste Rapture.

Ok, maybe I’m just getting a little too excited over this artwork, but I think I just found my desktop background for the next few months.
