James Paick is a concept and visual development artist who I first featured back in 2007.
Paick is the founder of Scribble Pad Studios, whose clients include Riot Games, Naughty Dog, EA, Sony, Respawn, Epic Games, Activision, NC Soft, and Wizards of the Coast.
Paick excels at suggesting detail and texture in environments of monumental scale, giving them a feeling of tactile presence. He uses both muted and brighter palettes to advantage, depending on the requirements of his subjects.
The galleries on Paick’s website are divided into persona and professional projects, both of which are of interest.
