What happens when 1,000 concept artists work together?

No one knows, so let's find out!

Inspired by the collaborative environment of game studios, this is a huge scale art project. We're designing a world full of everything from animals to architecture, and you're invited. The only rule for Concept Co-Op is that every submission must be directly inspired by two existing pieces from the team. We’re taking successful ideas, re-mixing them, and creating a unified body of concept art.


You're invited to submit as much art to Concept Co-Op as you like.  Here's how:


Step 1 - Discover

Find two Inspiration pieces from the gallery.  You'll take successful aspects from these designs to fuel your own creation.

Step 2 - Design

Design something to help fill the world.  It must both follow the prompt and be inspired directly by two designs from the team, but the rest is up to you!

Step 3 - Submit

First, make sure you have the official frame on your artwork. To add your design to the project, simply upload it to your Tumblr blog with the tags #ConceptCoop and #SapphireCove.  

New To Tumblr?

I am too.  It's come to my attention that there's a bit of lag between creating a new account and your images showing up in Tumblr Tag searches.  Apparently it helps to upload a profile photo (avatar).  More info here.


 Remember, every image is directly inspired by two works from the team.  Check the  gallery  to get inspired!

The Prompt

"You’ve just come ashore on a forgotten beach.  Tall spires of rock jut roughly from the deep, circled slowly by colonies of exotic birds.  Gleaming white sand is broken by patches of ancient stone; tidal pools brim with spiny sea life.  The distant horizon is disrupted by a small village, marking the entrance to a protected cove."
