    Please support the ConceptArt.Org Downloads so we can keep the site free.

    ConceptArt.Org is in the middle of a big bump in costs due to the amount of bandwidth we are transferring...thousands of gigabytes per month right now of data transfer as well as maintenance and tech upgrades.

    Please support the downloads. The proceeds to CA go to funding this site and it is the easiest way to help if you feel like this place has done anything for you or your art at all.

    media.massiveblack.com has the info.

    Super thanks to those who have been getting the downloads. It is what enables us to keep moving forward and keeping up with costs. We do need to raise funds over the year and supporting the site with learning is the best way to help.


    Thanks for reading.



    Jason

    Whatever happened to the Dan Dos Santos vid? Wasn't that supposed to have come out a month or so ago? I can't wait for it.

    Oh, and thanks for all the effort y'all put into these things. I love buying them and learning from them. Given the price of schooling or private lessons, these downloads are a steal.

    Wow those videos look great. I didn't even know they existed! I'll definitely buy at least a video or two. I think I'm going to start with the perspective series. Thank you!

    I got both Coro's Guns, two of Whit's first enviros, and I think I have an Andrew Jones or two. I really want the Marko DVD and that Dobsky perspective is looking mighty fine too. I'll probably get those soon.

    Just pick a few and buy em. It's the best way to spend fifteen bucks I can think of.

    And don't miss the Whit Brachna "Masks Demo" for $5....What a deal!

    If you don't do it for CA do it for yourself.

    maybe i could go on a huge ban hammer hoe down. Could make a whole day of it. the purge of 2009.

    registering has little to do with it...its the traffic and technology that is expensive. maintenance is also of cost. so...thanks to those who are actually supporting the site instead of just using it.

    best,

    Jason, thanks to you guys for producing these in the first place, they're worth way more than what you guys charge.

    Is there a way to have one picture on the server, but have multiple threads reference it, instead of two or more, or however many duplicates attached to different threads (critique center for instance)? Would that save on bandwidth/storage costs? Short of outside hosting and linking, I'm not sure how to post a final in EOW, get feedback in critique center, and sketchbook, without uploading 3 duplicate files. I've bought a lot of the downloads, and I plan to buy more, but I also want to do what I can when utilizing the site on a daily basis.

    All my spare money is going to Dallas, I'm afraid. :/ I hope that our workshop tickets also spare a little money to maintain the site...?

    Im just getting ready to move into a new place and start looking for work in London. So its a bad time for me really, and i dont think i can convince my girlfriend that i should be allowed to buy downloads when most (90%) of our rent is gonna be payed by her (until i get a job). Hopefully i will find work soon though, and when i do, ill be straight onto Whits speed painting and Carls perspective!
    I did buy Whits snowy environment downloads a while back tho, and Marko's character ideation when that first came out. Trying to do my bit, just having to fend off the taxman with one hand, and dish out demoreels with the other at the mo. But i salute you guys for your efforts here and i love this place. Ill do more as soon as i can.

    I don't think I like this attitude. There is no better way to support this site than to continue to use it to learn and grow as an artist and to help others do the same.

    That being said, the videos are great. I've learned some simple but valuable bits of information from them.

    But thats not what he means by support. We're talking physical support here. I know Manley is appreciative for all those who actually contribute to the site by visiting the critique center regularly, constantly post new work and help others out as that is the whole point of why he created the site.

    The reality of such a thing existing is that it needs money to maintain and expand. Instead of simply asking for donations he will provide you with something very valuable in return for giving money. He's not saying that anyone who doesn't buy downloads or DVDs are moochers, he's just taking time to thank those who have already supported the site by purchasing something.
