This article covers questions related to the game development field – services of outsourcing art studios, to be more specific. You will have a better understanding of the role of such teams, and why big companies and corporations(examples will be listed below) often order a specific application or idea to be designed or developed.
Graphics creation and role of art studios
Illustrations agencies create visuals, you need to combine environment, lighting, characters, and models(in-game assets) into one scene. Environmental artists create sceneries and backgrounds, character illustrators make humans, animals, and creatures. Designers model props and assets to make the game world vivid.

It is convenient to contact agencies for particular projects. You will have a full team working in the field they are familiar with.
What exactly studios can provide you with?
Art agencies present the list of their services on the main page of their website. Usually, the number varies between five to fifteen options. The most popular ones are:
