Lucasfilm’s VFX and animation studio, Industrial Light & Magic has released a great collection of concept art pieces created for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This collection features work by concept artists such as Doug Chiang, Ryan Church, James Clyne, Christian Alzmann, Yanick Dusseault, Kev Jenkins, Chris Bonura, and Brett Northcutt.
Each artist began to explore his individual response, and collectively, we began to answer, with our words and art. Out of our brainstorming sessions emerged visual imagery of where we might want to go and what it would look like when we got there. We were not merely illustrating scenes that already existed: we were initiating storytelling concepts through the visual images themselves.
