Epic Games has purchased ArtStation, a website that hosts artist portfolios with a focus on digital and videogame art. It’s used by a large number of game and film artists, from amateurs to those at the top of their field: Recently featured artists include Anna Podedworna, who worked on Cyberpunk 2077, and Leticia Gillett, whose résumé includes Blizzard and Disney. 

The site also runs a marketplace for game assets and digital illustration resources, and as the first order of business, Epic has dropped ArtStation’s standard marketplace fee from 30% to 12%, matching its Epic Games Store revenue cut.
