Professional concept artist requirements
A lot of people ask me what skills are required to become a professional game concept artist. So, I will try to answer that question here.
Firstly, there is actually very little demand for pretty, colorful paintings like you see in my gallery for instance. Smaller companies often see these 'mood paintings' as an expensive luxury. Larger companies often have very little use for 'mood paintings' and scenes.
In fact, in the 2 years since I have been doing concept art I have never been required to do any 'mood paintings' at all.
Generally, pretty scenes are only necessary for promotional marketing purposes and they are usually very tight, not loose. I have been lucky in the fact that I have been able to do plenty of tight marketing images from scratch, designing the entire image from my own imagination. However, most of the marketing art you see on commercial game packaging, posters and so on is probably done by an illustrator or graphic designer, using photographic references, 3d renders

When I play games or watch anime my favorite things to look at is the scenery they've created. The rooms, the content in the rooms I have always loved the teeny worlds they have made. I've only recently begun to draw again but I really believe environmental art is where I am headed. I find it so much fun! We'll see though~
