I spend a lot of time on http://www.conceptart.org, and I got to a-thinking that it would be great to demo some of our own, home-grown concept art, right here on these boards.
I would suggest that a definition of ‘concept art’ is work that is created – generally very quickly – in digital or real media, and is designed to explore or communicate a style or subject (character, environment, vehicle etc), and is NOT intended as finished product art.
Assuming Aphra and the mods have no objection, I’d see this as being a nice opportunity for the creatives amongst us (of which there are several, with talent to spare) to demonstrate, inspire, learn from and critique each other. Furthermore, it’s a good advert to the industry of the skills that exists domestically.
Please keep file and image dimensions to considerate and downloadable sizes.
