Concept Art Forum

I have always been fascinated with Concept Art. The level of artistic expertise one must have to achieve quality work and actually get paid to draw is astounding. There are many people who dream of achieving this goal, but few succeed. One resource to help get you there is a website called ConceptArt.org. It’s chock full of inspiration, ideas, and the community you’ll need to get you started in your career of being a concept artist. They even have regular concept art workshops with industry professionals.

Surreal Art Collective

The beinArt Surreal Art Collective is worth a look for anybody interested in surrealist art, abstract surrealism, or ideas in image form that go beyond conventional ways of thinking. The herd instinct and mentality that permeates society is cast off or interpreted in a unique way that surrealism relishes in exploring. This exemplary showcase of surrealist artists is stunning, and one would be hard pressed to find a more exotic collection of unique images brought together by so many artists in one place.

Kinetic Scuplture Artist

One of the most original and innovative artists I have ever seen is a kinetic sculpture artist from Holland named Theo Jansen. His thoughts about using genetic algorithms to create a new nature of roaming artificial life on the beach make for an interesting topic of conversation. Wired Magazine even has an article about Theo’s mechanical sculptures, and the pictures and videos of the beach animals are a unique site to behold.

Comic Book Artist

There was a recent article submitted to Digg.com about a relatively unknown artist’s interpretation of The Simpsons and Futurama characters drawn in an anime style. The works of art were met with thunderous adoration from fans and artists alike, and it seems Matt Groening, the creator of The Simpsons and Futurama, enjoyed viewing the art as well.

The artist, Nina Sachie Matsumoto, became an online celebrity within a few days and has now been hired by Matt Groening’s comic book company, Bongo Comics.
