Prey goes Into the Pixel

Some of the art from Prey has been chosen as a winner in the "Into the Pixel" exhibition to be shown at the E3 show in Los Angeles next week (May 10-12). What is Into the Pixel? Well, from their own site..

Into the Pixel is a juried exhibition of the art of the video game, curated by experts from world-renowned art museums, cutting edge galleries and interactive industry veterans. Now in its third year, Into the Pixel is videogame artists' one annual opportunity to receive recognition for their creative achievements by peers in both the digital and fine art worlds.

If you are attending E3, you will be able to see the artwork in the Los Angeles Convention Center Concourse Foyer.

Back on April 27th, a ceremony was held, in which the pieces of art for the E3 exhibition were selected. Being selected for this exhibition is prestigious, as it allows an artist to get their name out there and have people see the artwork in a different kind of format than they normally would (inside the game). Ashley Welch from Human Head Studios was selected for a piece called "The Sphere".

You can check out all the winners (which include art from such other games as Metal Gear Solid 3, Turok, The Godfather Game, Guildwars, as well as Ashley's entry for Prey. You can also download a hi-res version of the Sphere artwork for yourself there.
