James Paick (update)

James Paick, concept art
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.

There are instructional videos available for purchase and download through Gumroad. Paick also teaches through the Brainstorm School Mentorship Program.

  1. I love the mysterious mood of color of those artworks and the plenty of details. It really reminds me the “World of another tomorow” of F.F.K. Art who incorporates a bit of architecture and misty outer space too. Both are amazing!

    1. Thanks. Maria. I wasn’t familiar with F.F.K.
