Did you know the entertainment industry heavily relies on the talent of artists, most notably, those who create concept art?
Yup, it’s true.
Concept artists create a lot of the things you see in today’s films, animated shows, video games, comic books, graphic novels, and other types of commercial media.
Concept art is nearly everywhere you look!
Your favorite fictional characters, imaginary creatures, fantasy landscapes, and magical worlds are all brought to life through the concept art in which they first appear!
As the designs transition from original concepts to simple sketches to polished illustrations, the things that keep you entertained in life are born.
How To Become A Concept Artist
Concept art, therefore, is arguably one of the most important forms of illustration in modern times.
It’s also one of the most exciting career fields for independent artist to break into.
Perhaps you’ve dreamed about becoming a concept artist, too.
While it does take years of practice and dedicated training to learn how to create concept art that people will love, there are generally three ways you can do it:
◾ Teach yourself
◾ Learn from free and paid online courses
◾ Become professionally trained at a university or art school
Sure, the majority of today’s professional concept artists do have a four-year degree — but luckily, obtaining one isn’t required to land this fun, rewarding, and challenging job!
It may help you, but the truth is…
The quality of your art portfolio is all that matters.
Whether you’re looking for conceptual art to inspire and motivate you as an artist, or you simply just want to check out some highly imaginative concept art, this article is for you!
