Concept Sketches

  • Decide on your top thumbnail sketch.
    • Choose based on feedback you received from your Art Director (In this case your Profeesor) and your peers, as well as your own passion and design sense.
  • Research additional reference images needed to fully realize the concept. Create a mini mood board.
  • Sketch at least 2 Concept Sketches full size, not thumbnail size.


Compare in these examples the Approved Thumbnail sketch and the corresponding Concept Sketch. Consider where changes were made.
