    Lurkers Unite!

    I happened to check my user CP today and noticed that I've been a member of this forum for exactly one year now. In that time, I have (including this one) 44 posts. Even though I visit these pages nearly every day, often several times in the course of a day, I still feel like I've contributed very little to the forum.

    I know there must be dozens -- hundreds maybe -- of others who visit Conceptart.org all the time, but hesitate to post for whatever reason. So here's a place for procrastinators to start.

    Introduce yourself in this thread. Get your feet wet in the company of other lurkers, and then venture out to post some art and crits. Do it! Or else I'll have to watch this thread sink to the bottom of the board...only to disappear into the bottomless pit of the archives.

    "uh, Hi I am WoadWorrior, I have been a lurker for a while, I started lurking about a month or two ago.
    But never signed up, untill yesterday (i was brave that day). Uhhh, I will post more in the future and as for presenting my work there will be a time and a place when i reach that stage.
    uh thanks,

    Hey - Nice to see you! Welcome to conceptart. Thanks for being the first to take the challenge. Hope you're not the last! That's a clever username, by the way. What made you choose that?

    Any one else??

    watup peoples... good idea for this thread leviathan.

    I guess I consider myself a lurker cuz I pretty much have CA open on my computer at work the whole time i'm there (so I can dream about being a great artist and creating artwork for a living) but I barely post.

    I've posted a few times here and there and on about 10 DSGs over the course of the last few months, but nothing big.

    I am too untalented and unlearned to be spitting around my opinion (and I dont like just writing "wow !! thats awesome! " all the time) so mostly I absorb all that I can from all the threads I find. My goal is to have read every thread in this forum because there seems to be great advice and tips in everything here... (yes I have no life ). I guess I mostly come here to learn and to be motivated... it'd be great to talk to some of the amazing people here, though...

    So, for those I havent talked to: Hi.

    I'm a 23 year old Computer Programmer who is about to start law school but has had a sudden resurrection of his once-lost artistic dreams. I live in Virginia near Washington DC. If you live close by (or just feel like it) you should hit me up. My MSN messenger name is maximus_primeval(AT)hotmail.com and AIM nick is "Paki Prime". For those on DeviantArt my user name is "Maximus_Prime" (Check out my crappy DevArt gallery )

    Anyways, Peace out pimps.

    -Umar

    Dahsramu:

    That's exactly the kind of post I was thinking of when I started this thread. Nice to meet you. We sound a lot alike -- I'm 24 and work as a full-time Television Editor and Graphic Designer.

    I still hold out hope that one day I'll find the time to write and illustrate some books or comics, but for now I live vicariously through CA.

    Thanks for the post, man. The floor is open. Next?

    EDIT:: Dahsramu, I checked out your Devart gallery -- Nice. You've got some good stuff in there. I particularly like the Mitsuko.

    Hey jrr!

    That wouldn't be a suggestion that we go somewhere else would it?

    Because that would be a real jerk-ass thing to say.

    :p

    yea...i dont post often for the same reason. i'm not a silly little fan boy going "wow!! thats amazing!! your the best artist in the world!! can i suck your cock??!!"

    i'd rather just admire the work and learn as much from it as i possibly can. if i'm particularly impressed (like with Lungbug, Puddenhead, or Marko etc), i'll say something, but most of the time i dont.
    but i still come here 5 to 6 times a day, check out the new posts and read comments. so yeah. i guess i'm a lurker too.
    and if jrr dont like it, he can lick a toad. hehe. (i think i commented on one of his pieces once actually...i cant remember)

    LA (lurkers anonymous)

    hi my name is regina, and i have a lurking problem

    guess you would call me a lurker. I've been to the site about 30 times, three times today, and i've only posted about four times?.
    I do have to admit that my passion isn't drawing but another form of art~stained glass. Drawing comes in at a close second. I stumbled across conceptart.org while looking at a web comic's links. I was very impressed by the artwork i found and have been back to look at more, hopefully to get some tips to improve my own work. cause in my opinion its shit compared to some seen here, but then again i'm only 19 and have a while to improve.

    leviathan - thanks for the nice words and for checkin out my work! i've run into a lot of people that are gettin a resurgence of the artistic spirit recently, its good to hear i'm not the only one

    complete2 - yo dude! I just ran into lungbug's sketchbook the other day and i'm completely blown away with his work too...
    regina1323 - watup girl! stained glass sounds cool...

    I think maybe people should try to post one piece of artwork they've created if they introduce themselves here... what do you guys think? I think it would be cool - they wont be critiqued or anything, it would be just another way to step out of the "lurker" shell... if you're comfortable doing it, anyways...

    leviathan thank you.
    ah, the name WoadWarrior well I was given it,
    I was working on the new King Arthur film as an action extra, they painted me black & blue gave me a realy long mohaok (i think thats how to spell it) put me in leathers and gave me a big sword. We fought for a month or so.(day to day film stuff)

    Woad is the name of the plant i think the Pictish people dyed thire skin with it was an anticeptic against cuts, it oxydizes in to blue over time + it would stay on fo weeks. (but the stuff they had was food dye which was hard to get off, during the weekends i was slightly blue)

    Good idea for a topic by the way the whole Lurker thing !

    Thats Right! I also dont wish to be a silly little fan boy, over all else i want to go through post that have intresting information and ideas to learn form i dont want to be wading through a load of posts just for one decent reply. Posting is not about how many times you post to show how intrested you are in knocking up numbers, but suppling a decent and meaningful contribution.!
    thats the border between lurking and the others... :dork:

    regina1323: Thanks for sharing that with us, welcome to the group free Tea and coffee is over there. With such support we have here today, the Lurkers are pointing out there is a problem with lurking in ConceptArt, it is good to get it out of your system, and to see it as not a problem but transition.

    :dork:
