Concept Design

If you're unfamiliar with the "concept" of Concept Design, then you're missing out on an easy solution to your creative needs. Concept artists take your vague notions and ideas, and through the magic of pencils and coffee develop a tangible idea on how the final project is going to look. A good concept artist has to be versatile and creative to develop new and interesting styles for projects. And if you want to be a great concept artist, you work for Powerhouse Animation.

We work with game studios, filmmakers, ad agencies, and creative developers in the early stages of production to help create a unique and cohesive visual style through concept design production for their project. Our artists are adept at creating concepts for characters and worlds that will give your project depth and help establish its aesthetic identity.

Character Design

They say that hard work builds character, but building character isn’t hard work, especially for the artists at Powerhouse Animation. We create characters and mascots for a wide variety of clients for various projects including advertising campaigns, product representation, television series, animated webisodes, interactive games, and educational content.

Whether you have an idea and personality already in mind or we’re starting from scratch, our team is great at delivering a diverse array of styles, and working closely with clients to develop exactly what they are envisioning.

Digital Painting

Powerhouse employs several experts in modern digital painting techniques. Digital painting is an emerging art form in which traditional painting techniques such as watercolor, oils, impasto, etc. are applied using digital tools by means of computer programs. Utilizing these techniques, our artists not only produce beautiful works of art, but they do so in a much faster--and therefore a much more affordable--pace.

Digital painting can be used in concept design and in video game and animated content. A program like Adobe Photoshop offers a virtual canvas and painting box with a large amount of brushes, colors and other supplies.
