Daily inspiration: Concept art

Concept art is the focus for today’s daily inspiration

Every time I start looking at concept art I get inspired and want to to start drawing. This my most favourite type of art. The amount of amazing stuff around is redounkulous (yes, I spelt it like that on purpose!) I have a few books on the subject but, I have to say I think it is also one of the hardest styles to master. There are so many different techniques to grasp let alone just coming up with a cool concept and an interesting angle. I do try quite regularly but the same with design, staring at a blank canvas is not easy to overcome.

A concept artist is someone who creates original ideas and displays them visually. They create the style and feel for characters, environments and objects. This can be in the form of fantasy worlds and characters. It can be very expressive and abstract, not just realistic.

The medium used by the concept artist is varied, though typically in this generation it would seem that computer software is the standard

I hope you enjoy this collection of images, for me, it’s definitely my favourite inspiration so far. These two links are the sources for these images and they have loads more awesome stuff to check out in there.
