Ballistic Publishing Has Unleashed EXPOSÉ 11
A New Decade of the Greatest Collection of Digital Art
Adelaide, South Australia (PRWEB) July 03, 2013
Ballistic Publishing is proud to announce that EXPOSÉ 11 is now available to pre-order from ballisticpublishing.com.
Last year’s best selling tenth anniversary edition enabled Ballistic to reflect on how much the industry matured in the last decade. Technology has made huge advances, some studios have risen and others have fallen, but great digital art has always prevailed. EXPOSÉ 11 is in the vanguard of documenting the best of this new era.
EXPOSÉ 11 showcases the world’s best digital art in 23 categories, including: Comic/Manga; Portrait (Painted & Rendered); Fantasy; Fantasy Femmes; Architecture (Exterior & Interior); Concept Art; Environment; Matte Painting; Science Fiction; Robotic/Cyborg; Warriors & Conflict; Whimsical; Surreal; and Transport. Across all these categories, Ballistic Publishing is uncompromising in its pursuit of quality, and each image that appears in EXPOSÉ 11 is press-checked and individually color-corrected to maintain a standard of output that no other art publisher can match.
Many of EXPOSÉ’s international judges have returned this year, including: Syd Mead (‘Blade Runner’, ‘Tron’, ‘Aliens’, and ‘2010’), Chris Perna (Epic Games Art Director), Chris Sloan (award-winning Art Director from National Geographic), and Alex Morris (architectural visualization guru). They have been joined by Don Seegmiller, a Master Artist whose digital and traditional paintings have graced countless books and galleries for over 25 years. Together, the judges have selected the Master Award winners and appointed Awards of Excellence in each category. This year set another record for entries, with just over 8000 images submitted.
This year’s Grand Master is the internationally respected British fantasy artist and designer Roger Dean. Candidates for Grand Master are considered on a number of broad points: have they had wide influence in this industry; have they been prolific and maintained a consistently high standard; and, amongst other criteria, have they produced a substantial body of well-respected work. Roger Dean has met all these criteria in abundance, and has helped pave the way for incredible invention, technical mastery and creativity in the digital arts industry, and his work still inspires and motivates through great characters and superb storytelling.
EXPOSÉ is the benchmark yearbook of digital art. It has dominated the digital art market for more than ten years – nothing comes close!
