Warhol or Witcher?
Youve already tested your literary mettle by attempting to tell video game quotes apart from classic literary quotes. Care to step up to the plate once again? This time were going visual, asking you to tell the difference between the concept art of video games and classic art. We've come a long way from the puny pixelated pictures that used to pervade our projects. Now it's stunning, like really stunning. I'm sure we'll all that a desktop wallpaper with art from one video game or another (and if not, get ready to).
So here goes the quiz. Just like at the eye doctors, this will be a this...or this quiz. Every two slides will either have concept art or classic/contemporary art from the 1820s to the 1940s. Grab some paper and write down which one you think is the concept art, there will be an answer key on the last slide that you can compare your answers to. Think itll be easy? Well it may be, but at least by the end of it youll have seen 30 gorgeous new pictures. Good luck!
