    Exclamation Beginner's Corner 2.0

    OK! It's back the official Beginner's Corner.....2.0!
    (even though there was no help from the moderator's thanks a lot!)

    Basically this thread is a place for beginner's to share a learn new things together what ever that may be, everyones here to learn something different but we will try to go through everything. I'm going to try to lead this monster of a thread in some sort of linear direction so it doesn't get out of control. We will basically be giving out the "briefs" every so often,we or I expect everyone to try and participate in each of them.

    As well as different projects/briefs i want to welcome anyone at any point in time to post some tutorials on either how they achieve their work or some sort of technique or brush they think greatly helped them in their journey through the digital art world.

    Some of the projects we will be going through will be some beginner's stuff such as anatomy, value study, colour study, angles, etc. Then some fun stuff like creating environments, monsters, worlds, and scenarios. Maybe some other projects like creating a single work using only certain brushes/ colours and much, much more.

    ok now it's time for some rules on the Beginner's Corner thread:


    1. No thrash talk about other peoples artworks only purely art based criticism.

    2. Do not come to ConceptArt.org just for this thread, in other words don't spend all your time here. Check out other peoples artwork on this site especially the pro's here. Ask them questions find out what they do, what they use. Don't segregate yourself to the beginner's corner or you might not end up learning as fast or as much as you can.

    3. After you post something tell everyone what program, brush, filters, or techniques you used to create your artwork.

    That should do it! pld:

    Time for the list of members in the Beginner's Corner Thread, hopefully everyone will still be on board with this, ill find out who's still in by the posts on the first project.

    oh btw it's never to late to join as a member beginner's corner is always open to anyone willing to participate and learn, as long as you don't start and stop participating
    whenever you please

    can't wait to get started...I'm so totally new to CA but no worries I'll get this all down..hehe.

    I guess I can say that this is best work I've done so far..purely traditional media though...

    Good, I'm glad this is going through! I've sketched on and off for years, but 4 months ago I just... couldn't stop drawing. (Emotional duress is a wonderful muse.) I went out and bought a Strathmore sketchpad that I've been sketching out whatever catches my eye; all the basics exercizes should help my restless fingers. Some of what I've done recently (I love kind of narrating sketches; I'm a writer by default, this art thing caught me off-guard.)

    This is my first painting, I did it a couple of days ago. I might add some pale moon lighting to the trees, what do you guys think? How can I improve it? Also sorry for the low quality img, I dont have a scanner.

    Meandering_man: I think it looks really good, but yeah, some nice highlights from the moon I'm sure will bring more life and realism to the piece and give it more atmosphere. Don't go too overboard with it because you also have to consider that there is already some strong lighting from the fire itself.

    hmm..but maybe it'll be better to just not take any notice of my comment..after all I'm really a beginner too.

    Yeah, I feel the same way. Am I just supposed to start posting random images of work that I have done for critique? I thought there were assignments. I'm a little confused.

    I think there will be assignments, I just don't know when. But I do think that if you want some of your work looked at you can just post it. Not sure though....lets just wait and see..

    Is it cool if I ask basic Illustrator/Photoshop questions here? I have some questions about a robot I am working on but I don't want to pollute the photoshop forum asking simple questions.

    Well, I managed to find/make some cool brushes that I will share with you tomorrow. I will show the brush and then show an example of what it looks like when used.

    I've just been experimenting really, never made brushes before. It's actually pretty fun

    Other than that I can try to give some basic anatomy tips.

    Until then, try these out, from a good friend of mine:

    All done with Liquitex Soft Body. Random brushes, depends on the size of the stroke and what is available.

    I had two others to show but they could not be transfered over. I will check on my other system and then post them.

    Hey Rist, looks good, I wish I could shade as well as you. You could probably work on the contrast of the man in the upper right a little though, he kind of blends in with the background

    To be perfectly honest you guys should just start posting in the sketches/wip section and the critique center. Seriously. Best way to learn cos' crits come in a flood.
