什么是概念美术设计?

Concept art is a subset of illustration.

概念设计是多个插画的集合。


What is illustration? Dictionary.com says this of the word “illustrate”:

什么是插画?


1. to furnish (a book, magazine, etc.) with drawings, pictures, or other artwork intended for explanation, elucidation, or adornment

用来解释概念,阐述说明事物,或者仅仅是起装饰作用的一组画,照片或其他的美术作品。


2. to make clear or intelligible, as by examples or analogies; exemplify

用举例等,来阐明一件事。


3. 3. Archaic. to enlighten

启发


4. to clarify one's words, writings, etc., with examples: To prevent misunderstandings, let me illustrate.

用例子来明确文字的意思。


So, an “illustration” is art that communicates something.

所以说,插画是一个传达信息的艺术形式。


There is much of fine art that falls into the category of illustration. Any imagine that tells a story or represents an object is illustrative, whether it is communicating something as complex as a scene from the Lord of the Rings, or as simple a thing as “a horse” or “a man”.

有很多现代艺术都可以归类为插画,任何一个能讲述故事或者表现物体的图片,都可以称为插画,举例来说,无论是一个《指环王》的宏大场景,还是一个副简单的一匹马或者一个人的照片,只要能传达信息的图片,我们都叫它插画。


What makes concept art different from illustration is that the audience isn’t the person who reads a book, plays a game, or watches a movie. The primary audience of concept art is other artists, and other people involved in the making of the final product. Concept art is the blueprint that is used to make more art. It is also used to communicate with the holder of the intellectual property rights involved in a project, and it can also be the leverage that is used to get funding for a project.

好吧,那插画和概念美术有什么区别?他们最大的区别是,插画是给那些读书,玩游戏,或者看电影的普通观众们看的东西。而概念美术主要是给一个项目中的其他艺术家看的东西。他们最大的区别是观众不同。概念美术,就是一副蓝图,用来引导其他艺术家制造更多的,相关的艺术作品,或者最终的艺术产品(比如游戏,或者电影)。它也是一些(改编)项目中的原作者和其他工作人员之间的沟通手段,或者为一个项目建立一个有力,易懂的视觉基准。


If you want a formal education that will prepare you for being a concept artist, then study illustration.

如果你的目标是成为概念艺术家,那么你应该学习插画这个学科。
