The Bioshock series launched its first title in 2007, where fans were introduced to Big Daddies, Little Sisters, and Splicers. The vast underwater world of Rapture was still a mystery, and the mysterious Andrew Ryan appeared to be the most pressing concern. The inaugural release garnered much acclaim, leading to a sequel, a prequel, two novels, an art book, and a soundtrack.
Bioshock 2 debuted the Big Sisters, and gave more backstory to Rapture before its fall. During Bioshock: Infinite, players took to the skies and explored Columbia as Booker DeWitt. Needless to say, there's plenty of inspiration for fan art. Though only 10 years old, Bioshock spawned enough fan art to rival mega franchises like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or even Disney. In a game known for its visual storytelling, it makes sense Bioshock fan art would be equally vibrant and cinematic, further enriching the lore behind Columbia and Rapture.
