The tenth edition of the world's finest new digital art, EXPOSÉ 10 showcases the year's best artists and art from around the world. The series features the categories of: Game Art; Comic/Manga; Portrait (Painted and Rendered); Fantasy; Fantasy Femmes; Architecture (Exterior and Interior); Concept Art; Environment; Futurescapes; Matte Painting; Science Fiction; Robotic/Cyborg; Abstract and Design; Product Design and Still Life; Warriors and Conflict; Whimsical; Surreal; Storytelling; and Transport. Across all these categories, Ballistic Publishing is uncompromising in its pursuit of quality, and each image that appears in the EXPOSÉ series is individually color-corrected to maintain a standard of output that no other art publisher can match. EXPOSÉ 10 is available in both hardcover and paperback editions.
This volume has 284 pages. As usual, Ballistic Publishing has it in leather-bound limited edition, hardcover and the normal paperback. The copy I have is the paperback edition and the binding is great. The price difference between the hardcover and paperback isn't too much so it might be worth getting the hardcover.
The size of the categories depend on the submissions and this year they have a new category called Portrait (Illustration). That's in addition to Portrait (Painted) and Portrait (Rendered). Illustration is more stylistic as compared to Painted which is more realistic.
Here are all the categories
Warriors & Conflict
Abstract & Design
Jim Burns is the grand master together with 20 Master Award winners.
It's awe-inspiring looking at the art, variety and talent. There are 548 images in total.
I always enjoy the architecture category. The beautiful designs are almost beyond reality. The concept art, environment and matte painting pieces are stunning too. There are lots of detail to marvel at.
What's most impressive is of course the imaginative minds of the artists. The ideas, design and execution are wonderful. Standards are high. Some artists really took advantage of the extra vibrancy and resolution provided by the digital art medium.
This is a worthy tenth anniversary to EXPOSE, an inspiring tribute to digital art.
