Transcript of Copy of Concept Art: Traditional and Digital

Concept Art: Traditional and Digital
Concept Art in Movies
A visual representation of a design, a idea, and mood. Widely using in movies and games, and it is a part of pre-production.
With the advent of technology, it has been made possible for artists to flesh out their biggest ideas for tv, film, and games in a much more three dimensional way. Even if a two dimensional sketch is used, it is faster and much more eco-friendly rather than using several sheets of paper as before.
Digital Use of Concept Art
Sketches are used primarily by animation studios. Many character designers still work in traditional mediums, like pen and pencil. Other studios, such as Pixar or Nickelodeon make use of Cintiq tablets. Now programs such as Illustrator or Photoshop can be used to create painterly concept images in order to flesh out backgrounds or worlds.
Art created completely in digital form is most often used for games and film, in order to push for a certain aspect of realism in a project. These help cement the basis of themes, emotion and style in a project.
