Concept Art

Hi gang I thought I would do a small article on concept art since I know some of you are interested in it. Concept art or what is some times called visual development and/or concept design is the form of illustration where you design characters, mecha, props and other things for movies, comic books, video games and animated movies etc.

The heart of concept art is creating visual designs for things that do not exist. For example Ralph McQuarrie did a lot of the design for Star Wars. Star Wars is an example of a film that had a lot of concept art since it was an entire world that had to be designed.

It is interesting to note that a lot of product designers designing things for the real world have also worked in movies designing items that only exist in the movie. But in some ways they have had more influence by doing the movies. Because people tend to look at books for ideas of what the future will look like.

It is also interesting that this art form that is about making coming up with concepts for the bigger art project has turned into a very hot style on it’s own. Concept art books are some of the best selling art books today.

You can can find tutorials and examples of concept art on the forum ArtPhotoFilm.com.
