Concept Artist Before the character and environment artists can get to the business of creating in-game assets, the concept artist toils away perfecting the minute details of a soldier’s helmet or spacecraft. As is implied by the title, this person converts intangible notions of a would-be hero or planet into fully realised images. Using traditional materials (e.g. pen and paper) rather than computer software, the concept artist sketches ideas for the game worlds, characters, objects, vehicles, furniture, clothing, etc. They also suggest level designs, colour schemes, and the mood and feel of the game. Although not involved in creating the actual game art, their concept will shape the look of the game.
