Storytelling Through Illustration
At the heart of every film or game is a story. We celebrate the building blocks of fiction, from artwork to VFX, to end product. Here you will find monsters, aliens, robots, and space ships, you will find the antagonists, the protagonists, and the supporting actors.
These building blocks make those great moments possible; the best video games, the best movies, the coolest big-screen space battles, the thrilling car chases, the memorable characters, and the iconic scenes in movies and television history that have ingrained themselves into our culture.
This website features the art of concept artists, illustrators, and designers working in the film, game, publishing, and animation industry. These artists have the crucial role of visualizing ideas, creating world-building artwork, and giving shape to projects.
From gods and monsters to regular human beings, to space ships, creatures, and the world-building – concept artists wrestle these building blocks into being throughout the process with art skills, observation, research, and their own innate inner actors.
Concept art is an essential first step in the entertainment industry for visual and story development. Concept artists work from a script, an outline, or a verbal pitch. Their goal is to show the creators what their story might look and feel like before those creators commit to spending millions of production dollars.
