What are the best outlets for concept artists' careers? The daily jobs are super tense for a concept artist, especially in the video game industry, so they're not supposed to make concept arts at an older age, like 45 and up? I've not paid much attention to the careers of famous concept artists in the US before. Are there many old concept artists there?
Also, as a game concept artist, If you don't have at least a bachelor's degree of art related specialty, will you have less room for upgrading your career, no matter how well you can paint concept arts? For example, will there be a chance for you to be an art director later?
For the famous concept artists or illustrators who've made famous projects in the world, are there any of them that can sell their pigment paintings made on canvases at prices at least 200 thousand USD per piece?
