Hierarchy of Baroque Painters and Game Artists

There’s a clear hierarchy in Baroque paintings. The most skilled painters earn the most, and they have a great impact on other painters.

1. History painting talks about a certain story happened in a certain time. The story can be religious, mythological, or allegoric. These paintings are showed in public. And the painter will be admired by the whole painting world.

Concept artists are responsible for the ideas of each character and environment. They do a lot of research,  making lots of rough sketches and paintings to give a quick view of their imaginations about a game. And leaders will choose some drafts and have them made into products.
