The 2011 Into the Pixel exhibit features twenty works of video game art, selected by a panel of jurors from a field of submissions gleaned from artists around the world. The exhibition offers an opportunity for published video and computer game artists to be reviewed and recognized by the public and by their peers in both the fine art and video game worlds.
We'll be highlighting the artists taking part in this year’s Into the Pixel video over the next two weeks leading up to the end of the DICE conference on February 11. Read on to find out about artist David Stevenson, and his art from Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove. (Click for a high-resolution image.)
This featured artist is David Stevenson, who is a self taught painter in the classical tradition. He landed his first job in the video game industry in 1996 painting cut scene art for a Bothell Washington based Game Company. He has since worked on multiple projects as a 3D texture artist and 2D illustrator. In 2007 David joined Big Fish Games as a full time 2D / 3D game artist. Check out his environmental art for Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove below.
Now in its seventh year, Into the Pixel is the one annual opportunity for video and computer game artists to have their work critically reviewed by experts in both the digital and fine art worlds. The 2011 Into the Pixel Exhibition will premiere in June at E3 in Los Angeles.
