Hire Freelance Concept Artists

A concept artist is a designer who specializes in visualizing and creating art for a wide range of creative assets including characters, environments, creatures, and other fields. They visualize ideas that are used by VFX teams, animators, modelers, and prepared for production. They use software applications, pencil, and/or paint to draw graphics or environments required for a project. If your business requires new visual concepts, you can hire a remote concept artist for unique ideas or to bring your ideas to life through artwork. Concept artists for hire offer their online freelance services on the top freelance marketplaces and they will be able to help you with your project requirements.

What do Concept Artists do?

Concept artists are primarily involved in drawing concept images for artwork in different mediums like print ads, video games, and online advertisements. They paint different types of artwork including environments, characters, architecture, and things based on client requirements. The artwork can also be created on a specific brand image or style requirement. They may either think of the concept by themselves or work closely with concept developers to define the theme of the artwork required. Apart from these, they may also design specification sheets that display all the important dimensions. These spec sheets can then be used by other collaborators like animators. They present their ideas by designing presentation packages that display pieces of concept art. This allows sharing the concept with other team members.

  • Is capable of using drawing, animation, illustration, and modeling skills to create art
