“Let’s Get Real About Concept Art” by Anjin Anhut
Concept art is a glorified and coveted career path for many people, and one that seems to be surrounded by a huge number of misconceptions. This great article does a lot to break down the various tasks a professional concept artist may receive, what’s really most useful in a concept art portfolio (it’s rarely those big beautiful paintings you see), and generally dispell a lot of the incorrect expectations about just what is it concept artists spend their time doing. A must-read for anyone new to concept art.
