Interview with
Concept Artist, Redhong

Background images
What are you hoping to achieve
through this course?

I’d like to help students grasp the idea of concept art and experience a variety of projects with that in mind. My course will help students learn what to focus on when creating background concept art. It will also help them become familiar with artwork and tools and start building their own portfolios. I believe these experiences will allow each student to discover the keys to understanding background concept art in different genres.

What is the purpose of this course,
and what differentiates it from other courses?

The focus of this course is not on tools but on how to develop one’s design skills. You can only use tools to their full potential after giving a lot of thought to what makes a good design and after getting accustomed to continuous visualization. After finishing this course, students will realize that observing and expressing designs properly is more important than which tools you use.

Who is this course
intended for?

I recommend this course to those who wish to get into the gaming industry as well as those who are already working in the field. I have seen many people make insufficient portfolios based on incorrect information and struggle to figure out how they should study the basics of design and tools. This course will allow them to identify what concept artists need the most and exactly what things they should spend their time studying.

Required Programs

This course will use Blender 3.3 and Adobe Photoshop 2022. Please purchase and install these program(s) for an optimized lecture experience.
