Title: The influence of illustration on the process of creating conceptual graphics.

The diploma work of Martyna Macyszyn is a set of concept arts for a video game. The work strives to find new means of expression in many areas. The student examines the influence of traditional illustration on design and wants to create original and artistically appealing designs while preserving the characteristics of illustration. The author searched for inspiration in literature, children’s books, comic books, animated films and in her closest surroundings. The direct inspiration for the concept arts was Świtezianka by Adam Mickiewicz, a widely known piece of literature which inspired many illustrators before. It required proper selection of graphic means. Marta Macyszyn did a very good job here. The simplicity allowed for the creation of consistent and homogeneous works, both in terms of the environment and characters which at the same time aptly fit the narrative.
