Bleeding Cool has already told you that deviantART, the site that lets artists to showcase their work, is sponsoring Artists Alley at San Diego Comic Con this year. But we haven’t told you how…
DeviantART will be hosting two huge display screens that will hang from the ceiling over Artists’ Alley. These screens will be showing only work from artists exhibiting at Artists’ Alley, and will showcase the work to the entire San Diego Comic Con floor.
One screen landscape, one screen portrait.
Attending artists are being asked by DeviantART to provide examples of their work to be shown on the screens. If you haven’t heard anything, check with Comic Con. And make sure you get them up by the cut off date of July 8th.
Some people at Artists Alley have complained in the past that much of Comic Con ignores them, and doesn’t even know that they are there.
I don’t think that will be the case this year.
UPDATE: DeviantART have now added on their site;
We’ll be providing not one, but two huge display screens streaming art from artists attending Artists’ Alley. The displays, measuring roughly 11 feet wide, will be hung from the convention ceiling right over the Alley to show works from these great artists to the whole convention hall. Computer stations, complete with Wacom tablets and connected to the Web, will be located in a designated area, where artists in the Alley can demo digital drawing styles or showcase their work from online resources, digitally complementing their physical works.
