We will demonstrate this story and the mapping to the newer art styles in computer games by going through influential art works of the previous decades. Then, I will talk about concept art, the reason for its existence, its benefits and its fundamental role in today’s games. What is the role of concept art and how it can be a communicative device to describe how the game will look like in the final stages of the production.
