application essay question...
I'm finding it hard to single out artists. generally concept artists work for clients taking credit, and in teams...
and by what criteria do I pick them? their style? how much it's influences other artists?
-Scott Robertson for founding Design Studio Press, for bringing loads of books and dvds that show how concept art is done from a to z
-Jason Manley for massiveblack and conceptart.org
-George Lucas = star wars. Not an artist, but thanks to him every time someone with little knowledge about sci-fi sees a drawing of a spaceship: 'that's so star wars'. Not sure this counts, and there are hundred of artists that make star wars what it is.
-Sparth, well mainly the steambot guys. mastering speedpainting and random shape photoshop brushes
-Ryan church, worked on so many hugely important titles, i think his work is of great importance. His Gnomon Dvds are excellent too
-Feng Zhu, I'd say. Who doesn't know him? his style is immensely inspirational to many many artists. he did the concept design dvd series. his thumbnailing teechnique is great. i don't know if he invented it, but it's more or less the techniques that were used in "the skillful huntsman" and "in the future" by designstudiopress
Thanks for your opinons
