August 5th 2008,HOT DAY

time to revive my thread oh lulz
been busy for few weeks working on stuff
so don't have the time to think bout what to write and stuff
here i am
finally getting the feel to blog
starting my 1st class in ERA today
it was great,and i got bunch of friendly coursemate despite of 1st day getting to know me
oh,they were all girls and one guy
that sums up there were 2 guys in the class
finally,i feel more like going to college now
which is a good thing
and i kinda got asked to intro myself in front of the class
and i got point blank at a moment lol
nice knowing them and,really the lecturers and bunch of fun peoples too.

okay college aside
here's another posting that i hope may enlighten people

there's been alot of people misunderstood what concept art is
well,i'm in this particular field and certainly,i hope i could clear up the mist covering you guys out there thinking about what concept art is
well,majority would think that concept art is freaking cool ass painting
more like a masterpiece as long as it is digitally painted
concept art is concept art
illustration is illustration
both differs from each other
concept art is more to the design rather than the beauty of the painting,a masterpiece or so to say
well,you cant take monalisa as a concept art do you?
concept art is more about the idea and less about the painting
talking about it,we're selling the ideas not the masterpiece

"Concept art is a subset of illustration.

What is illustration? says this of the word “illustrate”:

1. to furnish (a book, magazine, etc.) with drawings, pictures, or other artwork intended for explanation, elucidation, or adornment
2. to make clear or intelligible, as by examples or analogies; exemplify
3. 3. Archaic. to enlighten
4. to clarify one's words, writings, etc., with examples: To prevent misunderstandings, let me illustrate.

So, an “illustration” is art that communicates something.

There is much of fine art that falls into the category of illustration. Any imagine that tells a story or represents an object is illustrative, whether it is communicating something as complex as a scene from the Lord of the Rings, or as simple a thing as “a horse” or “a man”.

What makes concept art different from illustration is that the audience isn’t the person who reads a book, plays a game, or watches a movie. The primary audience of concept art is other artists, and other people involved in the making of the final product. Concept art is the blueprint that is used to make more art. It is also used to communicate with the holder of the intellectual property rights involved in a project, and it can also be the leverage that is used to get funding for a project.

If you want a formal education that will prepare you for being a concept artist, then study illustration.


oh and btw,here's a practice of my perspective
