Fre­quently, as­pir­ing artists over­look his­tor­i­cal adap­ta­tions that can be big sell­ing points in their port­fo­lios

Many con­cept artists th­ese days are tal­ented at de­sign­ing for the fan­tasy and sci­ence fic­tion gen­res. But it’s im­por­tant not to com­part­men­talise your tal­ents, and draw­ing on a broad range of gen­res is cru­cial for a film de­signer’s port­fo­lio. Fre­quently, as­pir­ing artists over­look his­tor­i­cal adap­ta­tions that can be big sell­ing points in their port­fo­lios. My first po­si­tion in film came about be­cause of sev­eral Western-in­flu­enced keyframes I de­signed. This type of his­tor­i­cal work will in­di­cate you have a broader range than the com­pe­ti­tion, but make sure only to use ref­er­ences that are cor­rect for that spe­cific time pe­riod. When your work is grounded in this way, it means you're de­pict­ing the past cor­rectly, in­stead of cre­at­ing de­riv­a­tive or stylised de­signs.
