50 Eye-Popping Examples of Concept Art

One of the most unique and common forms of art on the Internet these days is called concept art.

Concept art is a form of illustration where the main goal is to convey a visual representation of a design, idea, and/or mood for use in movies, video games, animation, or comic books before it is put into the final product.

The concept artist generates a visual design for something that doesn’t yet exist.

Most of these pieces are created with Photoshop as well as using more traditional means such as oil paints, pencils and others. The two most common themes are science fiction and fantasy.

In this post, we take a look at 50 great  examples of concept art that are sure to inspire you and let your imagination run wild.

  1. I suppose this is an old post, but I’ll comment anyway.

    Thank you for sharing! I love concept art and the amazing level of creativity and imagination that so often goes into it. It’s wonderful inspiration for my own (not nearly as wonderful) art as well, so this is helpful as well as generally amazing.

    Two of my favorite concept artists are Daryl Mandryk (mandrykart.com) and a French fellow who calls himself Bengal (http://www.cafesale.net/bengal/). Mandryk does spectacular character designs and scenery in a traditional concept art style, while Bengal has a more unique art style that he utilizaes for very expressive characters. Both are worth a look. Again, thank you!

  2. Great list!

    I agree with Dave, Mandryk does some incredible stuff. Most impressive are his life drawing studies on his blog. Absolutely love Daniel Dociu’s stuff as well. So many awesome styles out there that convey different things.
