Flinders University has had 5 Students make it to the Finals. Congratulations to Jordan, Jonathon, Jay and Duncan in the Concept Art category, and Alex, our finalist in the Visual Effects category.
For those unfamiliar, Concept Art is created for feature film, computer games, story narrative, theme parks, advertising and fan-art purposes. Generally speaking it is a form of illustration where the main goal is to convey a visual representation of a design, idea, and/or mood for use in films, video games, animation, or comic books before it is put into the final product. Concept art is also referred to as visual development and/or concept design.and can go through many iterations until the product reaches its destination.
Visual Effects is for artists working with assets and elements that are integrated with live-action footage to create photo realistic environments, characters, sets, props, animation and effects that would be dangerous, expensive, impractical, or simply impossible to capture on film.
You can vote on your favourite artist on the Rookies page now and shape the winner.
