    The best of CA...need input! Have you seen any awesome lately?

    Hey everyone! We are going to be promoting a lot of the artists and art here on the site and until our new image viewers are done, I am not able to go through the site and see all the best art quickly. I am hoping that you all could help us find the best works that have been happening here on the site (as you come across them or as you wish to dig), and post the links to the awesome here. I thought you might want some say in what goes up there and this thread can serve as a nomination ground for that.

    We are putting up the first batch of stuff tonight, barring any issues, and want to do updates often.

    The new viewers will solve this as all the art can quickly be seen, but those are just now going into production. Any links would be amazing...and inspiring.

    Please.


    Jason

    Id like to nominate Rhubix Not only does she have a great sketchbook, she embodies the great spirit of the sketchbook threads. She goes out of her way to help many people providing indepth critiques, paintovers, tips, and over all motivation/inspiration! I think she really deserves a place at the top!

    I'd like to nominate Rhubix as well. She has an awesome sketchbook and she always tries to help out many people here on the sketchbook section as well going through the extra mile drawing over peoples' work to help out.

    King Kostas is a prime example of what CA is all about. I worked with him on some project back when his sb was in single digits and he seemed "just good enough to be okay" Now that sketchbook is at 120 fucking pages and he is just rockin the house.

    def king kostas, the guy goes above and beyond everything, 120 pages, he still answers every person on his sketchbook, has provided tonnes of crits and even does tutorials on the stuff he learns, his art is incredible, and generally all round nice guy. the guy is like the marine of sketchbooks he just doesnt quit ever.

    King Kostas, as has already been suggested for aforementioned reasons. Talented, inspiring and fair.
    ~KJK~, both a good friend and a very talented and resourceful artist.
    Metal Fingers, vivid and crazy ideas with great execution.

    These three titans off the top of my head, though there are tons of awesome artists here.

    Sebastian Gromann His concepts are kicking my ass everytime he updates - AND he does update regulary
    Miles Johnston No comment, I think everyone knows him. He still updates from time to time, but he's quite busy at Atelier Stockholm
    Ville_S In my opinion one of the most unique users in our community. Updates daily and practices at a very classical approach

    First person that comes to my mind is Ca's very own Andrew Sonea, I personally don't know Andrew, but when browsing the boards he is constantly helping fellow members as well as producing great art. Definitely someone to watch out for in the community, I see great things happening for him in due time. http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...-2-2013/page24

    somebody brought up miles johnston without sam carr. I used to listen to a live stream they hosted and couldn't tell them apart. They both sound like harry potter.

    I'd like to mention Merlin - Journey of an Artist...

    His oil paintings are amazing.

    Just curious why most of these werent picked and were replaced with people not even suggested
    Were they not up the par?
    Or are the top people going to change to some of these guys?
    Kinda disappointed.

    Featured art and artists in the banner are going to get changed daily.
    But first we need to get most of the current stuff running properly, so these will stay a bit longer.

    But I have to admit that I don't even know if this was supposed to be a thread for the artists in the banner.
    I will ask Jason.
