Into the Pixel is a yearly juried art exhibit showcasing concept and visual development art from the gaming industry.
Sponsored by the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences and the Entertainment Software Association, the exhibition is displayed at the E3 Expo.
You can also view the selections from this year, as well as the past several years, in the online galleries. The art selections are linked form the “Collection” sublink under each year in the navigation. Hovering over the thumbnails changes the mid size preview; clicking on the thumbnail opens the image in a pop-up window.
The pop-ups list the artist, the game for which the piece was done and the medium — most often digital painting, as well as some 3D modeling and mixtures of the two. There is a wonderfully diverse array of subjects and illustration styles.
