E3 has the Into the Pixel art gallery for video game concept art, and now the annual Game Developers Conference is trying its hand at one. Called "Art Boss," it's a collaboration with the folks at iam8bit and will feature not just concept art (a la Into the Pixel), but production art, in-game stuff like textures and even promo materials. Another way this differs from Into the Pixel is that each artist will have a headshot and a bio alongside their submitted work -- the E3 gallery typically just lists the artist's name, game a piece came from and the studio responsible. Further on the artist-forward note, there isn't an entry fee for submitting a piece, either.
More than that, iam8bit says it's creating a permanent digital and physical archive for the featured works. As for the latter, you'll very likely be able to catch a glimpse at the outfit's locations in Los Angeles and London. Given iam8bit's reputation for highlighting truly gorgeous video-game-related art across a variety of mediums (giclee prints and vinyl records, for example) this sounds like a perfect match. The gallery will make its debut next February 27th at GDC in San Francisco.
