Do you believe that concept art can help you with your writing or will it just be a piece of artwork lying around for you to look at? What are your thoughts on concept art for novels that do not require such? Expressing my opinion in this, I think that having concept art can help a writer because if they are just playing it from their head, I think it would be a little bit more helpful to them in this case to have someone draw it realistically and see where you can go from there. Perhaps you can picture that exact drawing in a scene somewhere in the depths of your mind, and it can be a lot better than just trying to play off of the mental image that you've always had of that character. Or perhaps, looking at pictures of actors or just random people and thinking to yourself 'hmm that may be a good *insert character name here*' No flaming or such, this is just for fun and to see everyone's opinions on it.
