We bring the imaginary characters to life through our artistic skills by maintaining the character’s personality, backstory, attributes, and visual identity. Our artists translate ideas into visual representations using their technical knowledge of character anatomy, design principles, shape language, color theory, expression, costume, accessories, and other elements that bring memorable characters to life. Our game concept art studio provides you with turnarounds, facial expressions, poses, and other concept art that clearly captures your characters.

Our Concept Art Process

1. Understanding Your Needs
First, we must completely comprehend your needs and plan the path by your criteria and factors. We are committed to understanding your unique project requirements, goals, and aspirations.
2. Sketching
After getting to know what you want for your design, our artists start to draw multiple sketches for characters, environments, and props based on the references. We will provide you with several sketches until you find what you want. You can also give feedback and edit those sketches so the process fits your liking.
3. Color Key
A color key is a visual reference that shows a design's color scheme and mood. In this stage, the sketches will be colored in different combinations to help you and the artists select the best color palette that suits the design.
4. Lighting and Texturing
Our artists set the lighting to support the story and convey the mood of a shot using highlights and shadows. They also add color, texture, and great details by using texturing tools to the design.
5. Final Details
This stage is where you can see the result of rough sketches, refining the sketch, color key, painting, and lighting. The artists' efforts during the concept art process are finalized here with additional details.

Why Our Concept Art Studio?

We are perfectionists by nature and can’t even deliver a bad design even if asked to! An ugly concept art annoys our brains more than you 😀 
Several times, a client was happy with a piece of art, but we were not, so we designed it again from scratch at our own expense.

You will be constantly updated to share your comments, apply any changes to the concept art, and ensure we are on the right track. An exclusive account manager will be allotted to your project, who will manage our communications and respond to messages quickly. They are always available, on-call, and ready to jump on a meeting with you, even on weekends.

We welcome changes and criticism, and we are as flexible as possible when it comes to implementing revisions. However, as professionals, we will express our opinions and provide our advice. Ultimately, the decision-making lies with you.

We are gamers by nature and know the ins and outs of the game industry by heart and experience. Our common sense here comes into play and helps us have easier and more effective communication.

You may have experienced situations where delegating a project has resulted in both time and cost wastage, with a failed outcome. That’s not the case here. We will take full responsibility to ensure that the desired outcome is achieved once and for all.

  1. Concept art visually defines the game early in development, while illustrations promote the finished product.
  2. Concept art establishes the visual style and explores ideas. It’s about answering questions and problem-solving. Illustrations promote the game with polished, visually compelling images for marketing. The focus is on selling the established vision, not problem-solving.
  3. Concept artists define the look of characters, environments, props, key art, and other game elements. Illustrators bring concept art to completion with rendering, lighting, and other finishing touches.

There are 4 logical reasons for you to consider outsourcing your concept art:

  • Saving Money and Time: You gain immediate access to a versatile team of specialists without the overhead costs of hiring staff by outsourcing your concept art. You pay only for the concept art needed, speeding up production. Concept art studios also have the staff and expertise to scale up or down flexibly based on your current needs. Whether you need a few concepts or a hundred, they have the capacity to deliver top-notch concept art at a fraction of the time and cost.
  • Creativity: Have you ever considered that you can outsource creativity too? There is no need for you to do everything by yourself. Even Apple went after Hovey-Kelley and used their fledgling design firm when they wanted to invent the first computer mouse. Creativity is one of the game concept art studio’s strong suits, and our artists have nourished their minds; by hiring us, you also hire creativity as well.
  • Quality: Practice makes perfect! A concept art agency has made numerous concept arts and is constantly updating its knowledge of the corresponding industry. They keep up with the trends, watch state-of-the-art concept art, use cutting-edge tools, and can make the highest-quality concept art, which might cost you and your team more time and budget.
  • Scalability: If you want to create several concept art, you should grow your team too. That is no concerning matter for a concept art agency because they already have enough artists. Even if they don’t have enough artists right away, they have connections and know artists who can hire right away, so they can produce any concept art you are going to need.

There are some criteria for picking the best video game concept art outsourcing studio for your projects:

  • Portfolio: A concept art company’s expertise is showcased via its concept art portfolio, and nothing tells better what they are capable of than its past works.
  • Reviews: Read their reviews online and see what their past clients think of them. The most honest on-hand thing you can find in any concept art company is its online reviews.
  • Communication: First impressions matter – especially when it comes to communication. If they’re slow to respond or just plain rude from the get-go, imagine how it’ll be once they have your money! Trust your gut and work with people who make you feel good.
  • Time and Budget Compatibility: After all, you might find the best game concept art studio in the world, but your time schedule and/or money budget do not meet their demands. Find a video game concept art outsourcing studio that meets all the previous characteristics as well as your budget and schedule.

Creating awesome concept art doesn’t always require complex or extraordinary efforts. Considering a few basic points can easily transform your concept art:

  1. Clear Silhouettes: The shapes and silhouettes of characters and objects should be clearly recognizable and visually distinctive. This helps establish their identity and visual brand. Star Wars stormtroopers have very distinct helmet shapes that are instantly recognizable.
  2. Consistent Lighting: The lighting and shadows in concept art should feel cohesive, even on separate concept pieces. This creates a consistent look and feel. The lighting and shadows create a cohesive look across Overwatch character concepts and environment art.
  3. Expressive Characters: Facial expressions, body language, and costume details should help convey a character’s personality and backstory. Their attitude and emotions come through. Tangled’s Flynn Rider shows strong, consistent facial expressions that inform personality.
  4. Environmental Storytelling: Backgrounds and environments should provide visual interest while also reinforcing important details about the world and its history. Breath of the Wild’s ruined architecture tells the story of a post-apocalyptic world.
  5. Mood and Atmosphere: Color palette, lighting, perspective, and other elements come together to set the overall mood and emotional feel for the world and its inhabitants. The Last of Us concept art uses a somber color palette and perspective to convey a gloomy, tense mood.
  6. Cohesive Style: Though concept pieces may have variety, there should be a unified and intentional art style, use of color, level of polish, etc., throughout. Cuphead has a unified retro art style across characters and environments.
