50 More Concept Art/CG Portfolios to Inspire and Motivate

Amazing Work from the Best 3D Modelers and Concept Artists in the World

By

It's been quite some time since I published the first volume of 50 Concept/3D Artists to Inspire and Motivate.

That list is absolutely fantastic, and those are still some of my favorite artists of all time. But it's also just a sliver of the fantastic artists, animators, modelers, and production designers that I draw inspiration from, and I've discovered quite a few new favorites in the past few months.

Since the first article in the series is quite popular, I thought I'd take this opportunity to offer up a volume two. So sit back, make some tea, and enjoy the fireworks:

1. More Industry Classics


In our previous inspiration article we covered some of the biggest names in the history of entertainment design in a section called "legends." But what we offered there was far from comprehensive—there is an incredible tradition of science fiction and fantasy artists that stretches back decades.

Here are a few more "classic" genre illustrators, animators, and designers:

  1. Ron Cobb - Probably best known for his interior work for the Alien franchise.
  2. Glen Keane - One of the greatest animators to come out of 90s era Disney.
  3. Brom - Legendary fantasy/gothic illustrator and concept artist.
  4. John Berkey - One of the most accomplished science fiction illustrators of all time, with an amazing futurist vision.
  5. John Harris - More sci-fi covers than you can shake a pencil at.

2. Concept Design / 2D Artists

  1. Stevie Lewis - Fantastic sense of character and appeal. Visual development artist at Dreamworks.
