Says Don Seegmiller:
A great deal of work in the video game, movie and other entertainment industries requires the development of a relatively rough concept sketch of a character into a more finished and refined piece of art. Often, this is not only to sell the concept, but also to give other people who will be working on the various aspects of the project a clear idea of the artist's vision
