Epic Games buys ArtStation – and slashes seller fees

In news more harmonious than its recent battles with Apple, Epic Games has bought artist portfolio site, ArtStation. And crucially for creatives, the two companies have announced plans that will be the cause of much celebration in the digital art community.

In order to give back to creators, standard seller fees have been slashed from the current 30 per cent to just 12 per cent, and Pro members will now pay just 8 per cent, down from 20 per cent – and the new prices have already begun. Hurrah, indeed. Impressed enough to start creating? You'll need the best drawing tablets and top digital art software, too.
