Just to give you some light..

Before anything gets created, concepts have to be made so that they can finally become reality, concept art is a subgenre of illustration where the artwork is not intended to be a final product, but a step towards a larger final product. Typically, concept art is not as finished or polished as illustrations.

the main difference Concept comes first and than it move to the original product with the help of other graphic tools/software

As i design sites i have to think how to show navigation,page block, which elements to take place and all so this thinking process is in short is a concept how differently you can attract other with unique idea(concept)

Concept Art involves talent, skill, dexterity and a visual eye.
