Into The Pixel 2011 collects incredible works of gaming art:

Concept art is often beautiful, but even with a growing number of art books being bundled with collector’s editions, it’s just as often work that will never be seen by anyone outside of a game’s development team. The Into The Pixel collection tries to change that. Organised by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences and the Entertainment Software Association, each year it selects some of the best pieces of gaming art, whatever the reason for its creation.


The 17 new pieces to be displayed at this year’s E3 have just been released, and I’ve posted the PC-relevant images below, including work from Bioshock Infinite, Mass Effect, Dragon Age 2, Alien Swarm and the unreleased Drawn 3. So pretty.



Click each image for bigger versions, and find more work from previous years at the Into the Pixel site.
