    Anybody know character design concept artists?

    Hola guys!

    I'm currently a hobbyist in drawing. My drawing is OK but I like to learn more about character design. I believe in order to grow, it's important to have some great names to look up to. Can anybody help by sharing some references of famous artists in the industry? (You can even mention your name too!)
    I'm looking for artists reference who can draw characters well especially in terms of race and culture.
    Any reply will be greatly appreciated!

    Can be seen carrying sketchbook around nearby bus station.

    How about you rather find characters you really like visually from your favorite whatevers, and try to find out who was the concept artist for those? It's easier to look up to those who you actually have some personal connection to. There's art books for almost every recent major movie, game and animation and Google will be your help.

    Thanks TinyBird. Yeah artbook & imaginefx (and google) is my best partner so far. Well if I have more names from you guys it'd be greater!

    You have Robb Waters who chara-designed Bioshock & Infinite, great drawer, less great painter, but has an amazing design/creative mind. Kenneth Scott for RAGE and Halo 4, Isaac Hannaford, Jaime Jones for Bungie, Hyoung Taek Nam for Naughty Dog, Martin Deschambault, Vincent Gaigneux for Ubisoft and many more; check out ConceptArtWorld.com a great site to find the concept arts of a game or movie
