Join Patrick Ballesteros for an in-depth discussion in this video Categories of concept art, part of What Is Concept Art?.
- [Instructor] Let's talk about what…you'll be asked to design.…This is what I like to call the five main food groups…of concept art, and it goes like this.…Characters, creatures, vehicles,…props, and environments.…These five major components are necessary to build a world,…and is important to remember that is what you are,…a world builder.…So what does a world need?…It needs people to interact with,…a setting to give it context,…props for people to use,…and maybe a horse or a car for transportation.…
These categories don't cover everything,…but it is definitely a great place to start…in regards to building a portfolio,…and showing your competence as a designer.…Let's start off with the first category,…characters and creatures,…and dive into the process of creating iconic designs.…
