Character Concept Art
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. We provide you with turnarounds, facial expressions, poses, and other concept art that clearly captures your characters and creatures.

Why Our Concept Art Studio?

ONLY HIGH-QUALITY Concept Art

We are perfectionists by nature and can’t even deliver a bad design even if asked to! An ugly artwork 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 in addition to our gaming 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.

ABOVE OUR EXPECTATIONS

It has now been a few months that we have been working with Pixune Studios and the quality they deliver is truly impressive. From the start, they have been understanding our vision and providing 3D animations that were above our expectations. We are already engaging ourselves in a long term partnership.

PUSH THROUGH CHANGING SPECIFICATIONS

Concept art and design of main characters for our new indie game. Pixune helped us to find the style across many iterations, exploring different ideas and providing examples. In order to achieve the desired results for 2 good characters and an original art style, they made more than 40 rough sketches with ideas for the characters and their interactions, more than 10 color variations, designs for props in 8 different styles, 3 iterations on sketches for the game map and a section in color for better context. We even changed visual styles completely, from fantasy-cheerful to neon-scifi. They were able to push through changing specifications and keep iterating until we found the perfect characters and style for our game. The end result is beautiful and worth the wait!

QUALITY IS THEIR FIRST PRIORITY

During the first meeting with Mohammad, I learned a lot about YouTube marketing and the process of creating 3D animation. Although their price was higher than my budget, I decided to collaborate with them because of their quality and communication. I really enjoyed working with Pixune Studios because they were always in touch and ready for meetings and revisions. Since quality is their first priority, even though I was satisfied with the design of the main character of my YouTube animation, they designed it again from scratch at their own expense to make a memorable mascot for my animation. And finally, the result was much better than my expectations, so that we are planning the next project with them.

NO BUGS AND NICE GRAPHICS

I hired Pixune to develop a sample runner game in Unity. The process was very smooth due to their experience, and their suggestions were always helpful. It was a bit over budget, but the results were excellent. The sample game had no bugs and nice graphics. The project was finished 3 weeks before the deadline. I hired two freelancers on Upwork before Pixune for a similar project and not only they were months late over the deadline, but the results were also very bad. So, I have to say I'm quite pleased with hiring Pixune.

THE END RESULT BLEW MY MIND

I just loved working with Pixune Studio. They nailed my briefs and worked relentlessly until I was completely satisfied. The end result blew my mind. A great Studio indeed!
J'ai adoré travailler avec le studio Pixune. Ils ont parfaitement compris mes attentes et ont travaillé sans relâche jusqu'à ce que je sois satisfait. Le résultat est juste incroyable. Un très grand studio !

I worked with 2 people at Pixune: 1 account executive and 1 project manager. Communication was clear and professional (and friendly) ending up in a great experience overall. To demonstrate how good they are, we had issues tackling expressions on some characters and the outfits of another. They sent drafts until I was completely satisfied!

SUPPORTIVE AND PATIENT

I am blown away by the work of Pixune Studios. I really didn't know how I would be able to replicate my daughter's drawing, but Pixune Lak assured me that they could make Laci become a reality. I have had a ton of experiences when it comes to creative art designs, and they didn't turn out well. So, I was even more uneasy when he handed me off to Reza to handle my design. However, Reza and the entire design team were just as supportive and patient with me throughout the entire process, even when I made additional changes. Pixune Studios maintained its integrity by fulfilling the job as agreed and exceeded my expectations. This is only the beginning. Thank you again.

CONTINUE TO HIRE THEM FOR OTHER PROJECTS

There's an old saying that when it comes to hiring people you can look for "good," you can look for "reliable," or you can look for "affordable"... but you won't be able to find somebody who is all three. In Pixune's case, I feel they come the closest of anybody I've dealt with over the past years of our company's existence. I've been really happy with Pixune. I originally hired them in the Fall of 2022 for game development and was happy enough with them that I continue to hire them for other projects, even ones that fall outside of the original reason I contacted them. Besides game development, I've had them do web design work for our site. They're very flexible, accommodating, and extremely reliable.

BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS

Pixune Studios was hired to create a two minute animated music video to accompany a new song from Canadian recording artist EVETA. After contacting many animation studios in Canada and in the US, it became apparent to us that a ‘high quality’, ‘world class’ animated music video could not be produced for the budget that we had in mind. Poland based Pixune Studios was the only company that could produce what we wanted within the necessary budget. Furthermore, the Pixune team was easy to reach and communicate with. Given the complexities of operating during a worldwide pandemic, our project did incur a bit of a delay but in the end, the quality of the product delivered was BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS. I would highly recommend Pixune as a ‘go to’ animation studio for the music industry.

BETTER THAN THE REFERENCE

The quality of the art received was really impressive after the team came up with ideas and improvements all the time for the characters. Being timely and attentive to details is great but their passion and involvement in our project were amazing! We will surely collaborate again. The team is very passionate and we were amazed when we got the final result which was better than the reference we provided, a reference that we really liked. I can say that we loved their work and that they are able to take an idea and bring it to life thanks to the passion they are working with and the perfect communication they are providing until the best result is reached.

TEAM WAS NICELY ENGAGED

Masoud delivered a solid job when turning our 2d drawing into a 3d model. The topology was constructed properly, and character likeness was maintained to a good extent. Overall there was little to adjust, and it was quickly done. His team was nicely engaged into our project and even brought in a bit of their own creativity, contributing inspirational ideas along the way.

SURPRISED WITH THE QUALITY

We had a character animation that needed to be done for a large project and we were given a short timeline. Pixune and the team worked with our internal team to take one scene. They were prompt, worked within our timeline, and delivered quality work! I was hesitant to hire an outside of our company as we typically handle all animation in house but the timeline was too short for our team to complete. We were presently surprised with the quality and how seamless the workflow was. Would recommend!

VERY CUSTOMER-ORIENTED

Design quality and animation work were very good for character briefs and every feedback was taken into consideration. As a result, high quality design was received within a defined time frame, and Pixune was very responsive in terms of delivering our needs. They have taken everything into consideration to reflect our needs and delivered a successful project In a defined timeframe. They are very customer-oriented and try to help your activities as much as possible. Instead of taking money and running, they are like teammates for us.

HIGHLY COOPERATIVE PEOPLE

The Pixune team is full of kind, excellent, considerate, empathetic, talented, and highly cooperative people. The quality of the work that was received was outstanding, however it did take multiple iterations to reach that level. Some instructions were missed, but were fixed - it just lengthened the process and the schedule.

HIT EVERY DEADLINE

Awesome work. Great communication. Was really happy with Pixune and how great this project came out. Hit every deadline, and even when we needed to change directions a bit, he was able to still hit the deadline. We will certainly be working with Pixune again.

SURELY COME BACK AGAIN

This guy did really good work, he really did amazing art and even after the artist finished he wasn't happy with it so he did it all over again from scratch. I really recommend him and will surely come back again. (this is already the second time)

THE END RESULT WAS WORTH

This was a great experience overall. He took time to actually understand what was needed to deliver the project that I was asking for. Modelers tend to rush because they think they know what the client want, but Pixune went over to clarify the specifics. It required a little more time than we agreed on. However, the end results was worth an extra few days. Trust me...it's worth waiting a few more days, than to have something you don't like at the end. I highly recommend to anybody reading this review. And I look forward working with Pixune again. Thank You!

FAQ

How Much Does a Concept Art Cost?

Game concept art services prices can be found anywhere from $200 (€190) for simple ones to $1000 (€950) or more for complex concept art.

The cost of concept art can vary greatly depending on a number of factors such as art style, number and complexity of assets (characters, environments, props, etc.), technical specifications, and time.

You can contact us right now to receive a price estimation of your concept art today.

Designing a concept art can take 1 day to 10 days, depending on the art style, number of assets (characters, environments, props, etc.), technical matters, and your budget.

You can contact us right now to get a time estimation for your concept art project today.

Our concept art production process involves identifying your unique needs to have a deep understanding of your project, sketching, creating more detailed sketches, selecting the best color key, and adding details using texturing tools. Then, we apply lights and shadows to support the story and mood for a desired result.
  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 concept art:

  • Saving Money and Time: Whether you need a few concepts or a hundred, a concept art agency can deliver top-notch concept art at a fraction of the time and cost. You gain immediate access to a versatile team of specialists without the overhead costs of hiring staff.
  • Creativity: Have you ever considered that you can outsource creativity, too? Apple partnered with Hovey-Kelley for creative ideas when inventing the mouse. Concept art studios thrive on imagination and creativity.
  • Quality: Practice makes perfect. Concept art companies produce countless game concept art, constantly honing skills and staying current on gaming industry trends and tools. Their experience enables high-quality work delivery without wasted time or budget.
  • Scalability: Expanding a game concept art creation scale requires growing your skilled art team. That’s challenging in-house but not for a concept art agency with access to more artists and designers. A concept art outsourcing studio maintains larger talent pools and connections to scale up readily.
There are 4 criteria for picking the best 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 agency 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.
To create awesome concept art, 6 critical points should be taken into account:
  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 style consistency and a unified retro art style across characters and environments.
Pixune concept art studio offers high-quality concept art across different styles, including photorealistic, stylized, futurism, fantasy, etc. Here, custom art styles are also available if you have something specific in mind. Our team, with extensive experience, can match or combine multiple styles to achieve your ideal vision and create concept art in any style you desire. Let us know your vision, and we’ll make it a reality through our flexible and customizable concept art design.
