Images: Art of the video game

Into the Pixel is a juried exhibition that recognizes video game artists for their creative achievements. The exhibit, now in its third year, was on display May 10-12 at the Los Angeles Convention Center as part of the E3 game trade show.

Pictured is "Titan's Head" by Eduardo Gonzalez. It was the artist's ticket to a job in a games unit at Sony, but the art never appeared in the "God of War" title for which it was created because the game play it needed could not be delivered with existing technology.
