How hard is it to be a concept artist?

Recommended Posts

Yes some of you might think this is a strange question but it seems like something I could pull off. Im always making characters but they always turn kinnda tom fulpy. I was just wondering if this is a good job or not to have.

Concept art is something you draw before actually including it in a comic or other art piece. I don't believe it is a profession you can work in, although I could be wrong... Also

No im sure it can be a real job to be a concept artist. Not all componies have them but I think they had some for Left 4 dead.

I wouldnt take this as a main job as its not what im aiming for in life. But a friend is trying to make his own video games and was wondering if I could be his concept artist.

You won't be getting into much carrers as an artists with that.

Concept artists just make the concepts no?

Yeah, your point?

Type in star war concept art. Or Gears of war concept art. Or just concept art.

All of these artists have stunning artistic capabilities.

The best thing you can do is know someone. Or get lucky.

You do realise that was made in paint.net. Im making my drawings hand held which not only makes it much easier but makes them nicer to. And I still have much work to learn. This really is a old drawing that dose not show how good my drawing skills are to this point. Right now im taking art classes to help a little and taking advice from a friend of mine who has super good drawing skills and is following his dads foot steps in programing and fixing computers.

I would gladley. Unforutly my scanner broke about last year. Didnt I already mention this? Well here is a final doodle I did from last year. http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs47/i/2009/236/7/6/Junk_food_class_by_Scaler193.jpg

I like it but its nothing to do of what I can do these days. Though we did get a new printer and I think it also has a scan option built into it. We will see soon mecha :ninja:

Well keep cracking at it i guess. My plan is to become a graphic designer and i can certainly say ive improved since i started using adobe software. Thats all it takes is practice and learning from mistakes im sure most people would agree.

I honestly don't see how much you can improve from that in a year.

I wouldnt be too skeptical. One time my drawings were awful, but then I descovered a completly new techique to drawing and I made much better art.

Scarler, how old are you? If your about.... say... 10,11, or even 12, your better at drawing than I was at your age.

Ehhh, I'll be honest, I don't like it.

Also, a camera can subsitute for a make shift scanner, if done right.(See FELS early work)
