What's this all about?
Concept Art! One of the most competitive parts of our industry, requiring a broad skillset of 2D and 3D talents. It's also one of the interesting places to be, close to the director and the production designer, helping to determine the look and feel of a production.

Concept artists can help visual effects studios sell their services, dazzling clients with beautiful artwork and helping to land big VFX contracts.
