Denis Loubet in 2007.

Denis R. Loubet (last named pronounced "lou BAY") is an artist who has worked extensively in the gaming industry since 1979. He has created both digital and traditional art for video games, pen-and-paper RPGs, books, manuals, magazines, advertisements, and more. He began his professional career in 1979 working for Steve Jackson Games where he stayed until 1984. He then became a freelance artist from 1984-1987, although he continued to produce art for Steve Jackson Games, but also Origin Systems and Hero Games. From 1987-1997 he was hired as a Senior Artist art Origin. From 1997-1998 he was the V.P. of art at Illusion Machines. From 1998-2001 he worked freelance for several major game companies. From 2002-2009 he worked as the artist and co-owner of Asylumsoft through it's buyout by TKO Software and then Iron Will Games. He also co-founded Pixel Mine Games in 2007 and worked there until 2009. Since then, Denis has been working freelance and still contributing to various gaming projects.

Denis Loubet is also part of the Atheist Community of Austin and has appeared on the The Atheist Experience television show with fellow Origin alum, Jeff Dee.


Though I had grown up with Denis's art, I wasn't really aware of who he was until I started delving deeper into the credits of the game industry. Then, I discovered that Denis had painted the art for many of the video game boxes I loved and created graphics for many of my favorite games.


Dozens more titles can be found on Loubet's home page.

Selected Works

Although Loubet is credited in several games as a graphic artist, he's usually credited along with several other artists, so I can't be sure which images are his.
