Concept art

Concept art is a form of illustration used to convey an idea for use in films, video games, animation, comic books, or other media before it is put into the final product. Concept art usually refers to world-building artwork used to inspire the development of media products, and is not the same as visual development art or concept design, though all three are often confused.

This website hosts much of the conceptual art done by Florian de Gesincourt, the French concept artist from the earlier posted video, along with information about himself, and a link to his tumblr, which hosts more of his artwork. Even if one piece does not interest you, he has wide variety of subjects, created for a wide variety of clients, including Ubisoft, the makers of Assassin's Creed, Prince of Persia, and Far Cry, along with Microsoft, and the now-defunct THQ, responsible for publishing the Metro games series, Destroy All Humans!, Homefront, and many of the WWE games.

A short video by Youtube-user Florian de Gesincourt showing his personal process of creating, defining, and refining the concept art which he makes, all the way from the beginning idea sketches, to researching the topic of the art, to the finished product, and everything inbetween. It is quite inspirational for any would-be artists, of the concept variety, or otherwise.
