    there's one on the adds on the forum, digital painting techniques, also there is no books per say that will teach you how to make concept art, CA is a whole of techniques (composition, ideation, anatomy etc) it al depends on the concept that you want to make, look for books on anatomy and animals to create characters and creatures, books on aviation or car etc to create mechanical concepts like robots airplanes, look for reference images of anything that looks interesting (heck i have over 500 pics on my laptop and have around 30 books and magazines like the "art of" series, video game magazines etc).
    so in conclusion there's really no book about making concept art (the closest thing will be the "art of" books or check the books at designstudiopress.com like "alien race" or "the skillfull huntsman" or the concept design vol 1 and 2).

    the best one I found on concept art was the ballistic publishing, d'artiste one called (rather imaginatively) Concept art. Its brilliant have a look at the book itself on the website at :-
    http://www.ballisticpublishing.com/

    they have a little flash thingy that lets you turn the pages and see what you are getting into. The book has work from George Hull, Andrew Jones (heard of him? lol), Nicholas Bouvier and Viktor Antonov.

    Hope this helps you out mate, all the best.

    A great kind hearted lumbering bullock

    yeah,i agree with that,but maybe there's another book tell the theory about CA (eg. why need character sketching,bla..bla..). but,like i said "maybe". theory by someone experience as concept artist,it really help. anyway thanks a bunch,if there another solution,i'll appreciate
