    How do I make friends at CA?

    No, it's not a joke. I'm really serious. I really wanna make some friends here in ConceptArt since I'm new here
    Like friends who give each other feedback and cheer each other on in their sketchbook threads, that sort and also a bit of chit chat in general.

    The three main tried and true methods are
    1. Give a constructive comment in somebody else's sketchbook (so they will come to look at yours);
    2. Join a community activity and give constructive comments about other people's WIPs; and
    3. Give constructive comments to people in the Critique Center.

    Every now and then you run into an inverse troll who really didn't want criticism at all and will respond with rude comments. Those are the people you ignore. If you are genuinely helping with your comments there will be people who respond well. Find a few people who respond well and who are at a similar level of development with you and ask them if they want to form a sketchbook support group (basically several people who regularly check in on each other and give critiques on progress).

    That sounds like forming the Justice League kinda team lol
    So this support group is like an undercover group known by people who get critiqued together by advanced artists or seniors? :o

    Basically, you post encouragement and critiques in your friends sketchbooks and they post encouragement and critiques in yours. That way you don't all have to feel so alone while you are plugging away at your art studies. Who communicates with you will probably depend on who you communicate with minus the people who turn out to be obnoxious or disinterested.

    This guy also wants to find friends http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...55#post3815055 but he seems interested in digital drawing while your sketchbook seems to contain mostly scanned graphite works. Still, you might keep an eye on whether he forms a sketchbook, and if so, then you pop in for a comment from time to time.

    Sure! Why not? I get busy in my day job sometimes and I am not around for a few weeks. Don't panic if I don't say anything for a long time.

    Just start a google hangouts event and post a link on ca.org, I did that on another site and now everyday we have a hangout with a bunch of new art friends and it's super fun and makes it easier to study
