Ken Wong fell into the games industry by accident while still figuring out what he was supposed to be doing at university. He has since completed a BA in Multimedia at the University of South Australia while freelancing as a concept artist and illustrator for international clients including American McGee and Nival Interactive. Ken recently joined Enlight Software in Hong Kong as an art director, but is willing to be seduced by the English countryside.
Ken's talk is entitled 'Ideas into Images: An Introduction to Concept Art' and will ask what is concept art, and why is it so important in the creation of games and movies? Where do concept artists get their ideas? What does it take to become a good concept artist? Veteran concept artist, illustrator and art director Ken Wong discusses these questions and more.
