Every year, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) and the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS) get together to select the very best in professional video game art. Here are their picks for 2014.

They'll form part of the Into The Pixel exhibition, which is held every year during E3. Just like it will this year, with every piece on display from June 10-12 at the LA Convention Center.

Some of the works below are by artists we've featured here before, sometimes even multiple times, while others are from people getting their first major exposure to a general audience. What they've all got in common, though, is that they're fantastic works of art.

Games represented include The Last Of Us, Sunset Overdrive, Watch Dogs, Rayman and The Banner Saga, while Jaime Jones deserves special congrats for making the awards shortlist two years in a row for the same game (Destiny).

Note that none of these are fan art; they're all concept or promotional art from artists working on the games.
