    yeah, it's the basics...

    values
    value patterns in composition

    color temperature

    etcetera...

    curvilinear perspective seems a good idea to me, seb. next to no one really knows it, everyone heard about it and its hard to find good sites in the web about it.
    i had to teach it to myself :/

    I´m mostly with Gekitsu and seb - my focal points depending on my main deficits would be colour theory and it´s appliance.

    I would be interested in some tips to customizing brushes in PS and Painter, too. Oh, and not to forget the perfect guide to get a super artist in two month ...

    BTW has anyone mentioned a "how to apply lensflares"?

    I KNOW!!

    Id would kill for a good tutorial on marker rendering like feng, etc. and another digital paint and or oil painting tutorial, this would be very muh appreciated and i think especially with the marker rendering since not many people know how or can find alot of stuff out there regarding the matter, seeing as how people are always posting questions about it and such, that type of tutorial would go over quite well, like one that like fengs goes over process, materials, how to set it up, stroke techniques, and effects and tricks that pros use, I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THAT.... or get hawkprey to do one hehehe like with combining markering and photoshop to get effects etc.... ID pay too see that!! oh BTW, where can i find manleys old oil paint tutorial?

    I really need help with rendering, its tricky thanks davi!!

    I personallyrequest, advance perspective tutorials ie fish eye camera views(i believe it's 5 points but not entirely sure)..

    And for the sake of inexperienced artist, some basic figure drawing(Head, Torso, Arms, Legs, Hands and Feet) as done by the best..(you guys could prolly whip something up in 15 mins)..

    Everyone else covered what i would be interested in..

    texture.. and i dont mean overlays, cause i already know how to do that.
    id like to see the tricks that other professionals use to convey material and surface texture and things with mild or strong reflective nature or even completely dull,, hard,, soft,, wet,,,, etc.

    I would enjoy a 133754UC3 tutorial on seeing color as value. Or methods that help improve it, or something.

    And one as Lono said about the surface material.

    Plus a Happy Meal.

    now that i think about it...

    a quick and dirty run-down on techniques, tools etcetera... used from sketch to finished picture would be cool. just like the hulk thing justin sweet started.

    this could be handled like a feature (title could be "studio visit" or "peek over the shoulder of ..."):
    a new painting demo by jason (since his dark elf one is quite old )
    an oil painting emo by coro
    digital demos by justin sweet and vance kovacs
    ron lemen
    we have enough pros here to keep this kind of thing interesting.

    one could just be inspired by some ways of working, learn some tips of the trade etcetera...
    the picture doesn't even need to be uberhuge, just to show progress and technique, along with some explaining text.

    These all sound like great ideas. But I have one question for you davi. Are you going to get these tutorials for us, or were you just curious?

    I'm hoping you can get em for us.

    I'm going to try to make conceptart.org the leading tutorial site on the net.

    The point of this thread is to gather a list of subjects that people are needing help with and then try to find suitable artists that would be willing to do them.

    I won't be asking just anyone either, i've been to alot of tutorial sites that just let anyone post and there ends up being 300 'how to draw anime head' tutorials.

    that sounds like pretty much of a task, but the result would be well worth it.

    as a rule of thumb, what would you think about no "how-to" style tutorials at all but real, constructive tuts, covering info and background knowledge? that alone would set ca apart from all other tutorial sites.

    I second gekitsu's request. A tutorial that gives you a step by step to a single picture isn't that helpful. Anybody who can read and has minimal abilities can follow them and get reasonably good results. But tutorials that teach you the background and basics spiced with a few step-by-steps are really rare and highly appreciated.

    Maybe we should separate artist's demo from tutorial/tips.
    And i second gekitsu... a step by step tutorial is rarelly interesting, it's more a demo.
    I've seen here lot of good tutorial - for noob and for advanced user. I'm still curious to see a demo from Dodowa :p

    For the subject... here texture in various technique, I don't like to reinvent the wheel or loose myself to find a good way to do those kind of thing(weaves, wood) and the work of color. I've seen a lot of cool stuff in the proposal...

    It's good to see that such a web site is allways in evolution

    actually, i don't have anthing against step by step demos, as long as they are done well.
    just telling now i'm doing this then i'm doing that and having a few pics is boring and you don't learn anything.

    saying what you do and (important!) why you do it, how you achieve this and that, why you choose this color over that for that fill light down there, what you were thinking when putting together the compo, what you are heading for in this stadium of the image, what to do next and why...
    things like that are helpful because they don't just show what happened but why it happened.

    i don't want to put artist demos on the site, they don't teach much besides how to copy that exact piece of art.

    I completely agree with davi and gekitsu..I can never learn anything from step by step demos/how-to's, unless theyre written with useful and helpful comments on how they learned their technique and what one would have to do to perfect their own, etc..stuff like that y'know?

    I think 'tutorials' that give outlines of what one would have to learn to excel in a certain aspect or area of art as well as giving tips as to how to get started studying and practicing are the most helpful ones out there.

    I really hope that you are able to follow through on this davi...frankly, im excited =)

    There is one on his site...


    Id go for a tutorial on placing light sources. Where to place them for dramatic effect, etc.
    Don't just practice. Also Practice the right things, the right way.

    yeah, controlling light is a great idea!
    rob howard recently mentioned a book about it, forgot the title, though have to look it up again.

    edit:
    the book title is "learning to light", amazon is here:

    I'd really appreciate a tutorial on lighting as well. Specifically how light plays off the planes of the human head. However, any tutorial in regards to lighting would be great. I'd even pay for it.
