A Guide to Digital Concept Art

The objective of the project aims to support concept art students in producing their own digital artwork by way of an interactive guide. The guide takes the form of a graphically presented interactive PDF document, in which users are taken through some of the fundamental principles of concept design. Research was undertaken into how to teach simple principles by watching online tutorials, and user opinions were gauged from art forums. Some of the fundamentals studied include composition, perspective, lighting and values, among others. The guide features working examples of my own artwork, upon which relevant principles have been overlaid to illustrate the principles.
