In my thesis I will explain what illustration even is and talk about different types
of illustration that relate to my work. I'll go more in-depth describing concept art, which
my practical work consists the most of. You will be shown different examples and also
authors, which have, in the gaming industry, worked their way up the ladder with their work.
The preffered, or rather, the most popular medium in concept art, is a computer. Most
works in concept art are made digitally in the program Photoshop, that is why I will also
brief you on the types of digital illustrations and their properties.
After that comes the research part of my work. I will take you on a short trip through the
middle ages, where you will get to know how the knight culture came to be. Then, you will
read about the different types of armor they used and see their overveiw.
At the end comes the description of my practical work. Here you will find more about how
I started with my work and came up with the initial design. I will take you through my work
process of creating a suit of armor, or rather, a knight, in the program Photoshop and how I
designed the basic card on which these knights will be displayed on. You will also see how I
made the final key art illustration and the layout for the pamphlet on which this illustration
will also be shown.
