What is 2D art?

2D art is produced on the flat surface and represents the composition with the dimensions of length and width but without depth. The game art 2D and 3D differ markedly – within a two-dimensional plane, objects can only move along the horizontal X-axis and the vertical Y-axis.

2D art comprises a wide array of artworks such as illustrations, comics, photography, graphics, drawings, which differ primarily in terms of techniques of creating. Generally, it is possible to divide 2D art into two categories: traditional and digital 2D art. While traditional 2D art is performed with the help of paints and pencils, the digital direction involves the application of special software for the creation of 2D images – Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, SketchUp, etc.

Today, 2D art holds a special place in many games – casual/hyper-casual, platform games, etc. Modern game art 2D techniques allow talented artists to create breathtaking virtual worlds no worse than in 3D.

What are the stages of 2D art?

Like any piece of art, 2D artworks get through all the essential stages that affect the final quality. Even if it is a totally creative process of making 2D paintings, each artist takes the following steps to impress with great results:

  1. Setting goals and work planning. There are many questions that should be answered in advance by artists – what kind of 2D art will be created, in what way and so on. It is better to set design goals and then proceed with a plan of work.
  2. Forming concept ideas. Whatever the scope of the project, it makes sense to develop a high concept before starting work on it. After that, it is crucial to develop similar concepts for each character, environment that will be featured in the game or other settings. At this stage, it is possible to stick to reference points if needed.
  3. Sketching. When all the visual information is researched, it’s time to show it in the sketches and approve all the details.
  4. Determining the color composition that is associated with specific characters or environments. While some objects feature particular colors to look natural, others need a lot of creative thinking. There are more characteristics beyond color than simply blue or green – it is required to decide on hue, temperature, value, and saturation.
  5. Final rendering with all detailed touches to make an artwork look great after all the preparatory stages.
  6. PSD preparation is meant to be a file preparation in accordance with customer requirements. It is required to check the image size, color depth, clean the extra layers, correctly name everything, and so on.
