Concept art is cool. I like doing it. Maybe because it requires the purest form of imagination, to try to capture a character in art that only has a description in text. These images are for a Science fiction graphic novel project I’m working on and are portraits of two of the main protagonists, Dorte (the scientist) and Jakov (the monk).
As you can see Dorte’s appearance has changes somewhat since my first drawing of her to the left, through a photo collage to the image on the right which also captures the proposed style of the graphic novel.
I like this about concept art. It is challenging, and freakishly fun!
