• Concept art ranges from photorealistic to traditional painting techniques.
• This is facilitated by the use of special software by which an artist is able to fill in even small details pixel by pixel, or utilise the natural paint settings to imitate real paint.
• When commissioning work, a company will often require a large amount of preliminary work to be produced.
• Artists working on a project often produce a large turnover in the early stages to provide a broad range of interpretations, most of this being in the form of sketches, speed paints, and 3d overpaints. Later pieces of concept art, like matte paintings, are produced as realistically as required.
Photorealism• Photorealism is the genre of painting based on using the camera and photographs to gather information and then from this information creating a painting that appears photographic.
• The term is primarily applied to paintings from the United Statesart movement that began in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
• Photorealist painting cannot exist without the photograph. In Photorealism, change and movement must be frozen in time which must then be accurately represented by the artist
