After graduating from Clemson University, William Smith started his career in advertising, eventually working with clients like Coke, Novartis, Wal-Mart and Procter & Gamble.
In 2008 he shifted into a new career as a concept artist in the gaming industry, and is now working with TimeGate Studios.
His online portfolio is divided into three sections, through which you scroll horizontally. I don’t know anything about the individual projects for which they were created, but there are a variety of environments and scenes, most with a science fiction flavor.
Smith often contrasts bright, high chroma colors with more muted passages, and sometimes with passages of complimentary colors, giving the focal points in the compositions an extra jolt of intensity.
