Digital artists are invited to submit between 1 and 3 works for consideration to this online exhibition. These works should be deeply personal and expressive. The art needs to be exclusively created in a digital process. Photos are ok if used as reference, as these pieces should reflect work done from one's imagination. We welcome all digital artists.

Attention Matte Painters: The talent artists bring to the industry is a necessary component of its success. All too often, artists' personal work is lost to the demands of the industry. This show provides a platform for artists to put their art first in a way that will provide the much-needed dignity and respect they deserve.

We are not looking for art derived from other professional endeavors done as service work for film, advertising or game studios. What we are looking for is original art done outside of your "day" job.

This is an exclusively digital art show. All software used should be included in your artist statement.  Please note, this is not a call for digital photography. Photos are ok if used as reference, as these pieces should reflect work done from one's imagination.
