    Concept Art Industry Terms?

    Is there a list of industry terms anywhere for those of us that are new? Some of these I already know but i think it would be helpful to have a list if there isn't one already somewhere on the site.


    AAA

    High resolution

    color key

    lighting key

    matte painting

    low-poly

    model sheet

    That's a tough endeavor, because a lot of the concept art terminology is actually just regular art terminology. Any attempt at a comprehensive terminology list would end up being many pages long and read like a dictionary.

    It might be easier to ask about specific terms you are unsure of.

    I thought I did, the only two there i know are model sheet and matte painting. To create a long list that reads like a dictionary was what i was hoping for but I guess that's too much because I did find a fine art list but it didn't have anything industry specific.
