Into the Pixel is an annual competition which seeks to award and highlight the best video game art in the business.

This year's winners have been announced, and each piece will be showcased during E3 next week.

It's a prestigious competition, one that not only puts the artist and their work on the mantelpiece just as the world is tuning into E3, but also affords them the chance to be judged and awarded by their peers, whether they also be from the video game business or are just artists in general.

Among the judges this year were Blizzard's art manager Seth Spaulding and iam8bit's founder Jon Gibson.

In total, sixteen pieces were selected to comprise the final exhibition. Most of the artists involved has been featured here on Fine Art previously.

A special congratulations must be in order for the Destiny art team, who managed to get two pieces into the final 16, by Dorje Bellbrook and Jaime Jones respectively.

Other games making the cut include Assassin's Creed IV, Dragon Age III, Rayman Legends and The Last Of Us.
