Panzer Dragoon series artwork

I love the artwork for this series, very original in terms of videogame art direction. Some might recognise the art and style of Jean Giraud aka Moebius in the links below, well that's because he was commissioned to do some artwork for the series. Fascinating??? Ive only dabbled in the series (Saga happens to command some of the biggest second-hand prices of any game ever) From Ive seen the artwork matches the visuals nicely (although admittedly they are of an era) , the surreal and lonely atmosphere is emulated slightly less as a lot of the gameplay is just about shooting stuff while riding a flying dragon, though I do like the designs...
