Join 500,000+ Artists
Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
Why is it that there is more jabber on this forums than critiques helping other artists? Why is it that there is more stroking compliments, often times, than there is helpful critiques? If we can hit 1000 critiques a week in the helpful critiques forum for 4 weeks in a row then Conceptart.org will unveil the first part of a big surprise for you all. It is a very good gift to the community. It will change CA for the better forever. Your abilities to meet other artists and to learn here on the site will become much easier. Learning in this group situation will be very much improved.
Come on people...we can surely do this.
If I had it my way, there would be at least a 1000 critiques a week in these areas...especially the helpful critiques forum. We have 180,000-250,000 unique visitors a month on conceptart.org and 20,000 members. Can we not do better than we are in terms of helping people with their art?

You mean each of us can finally have that pet Davi we've always wanted??
(You've piqued my interest however. Bribery can go a long way. )
amen to that, brother!
i'm on it. never did like blowing smoke up people's asses.
but mostly i crit in people's sketch books. that's gotta count too, no?
Hey dog. . . . did you see the size of that chicken?!
Well, I'll try. This site does do a great job at helping people with their art already though. It keeps me focused, motivated, and inspired. Pretty much everything I know about art has been a result of this site.
Edit: Did the Sketchbook section just become the main art board? If so, that rocks.. it's been my favorite area probably since I joined. Always thought it should be more of a focus with all it does. Sort of the base of operations for all serious people.
i just did 5 critiques, hurry up guys
I personally make it a habit of stopping in here at least once a day and posting a crit, more if art catches my interest. If everyone did that, that be like...a whole shit load of crits here!
Since I can't stand surprises, I'll be crit'in up a storm, I /must/ know what this secret is..
i'm sure in on this.
*checking the helpful critiques forum*
You're on, Manley! "Course, when I saw your post I thought it said "1.000 Cintiques in a week...." When do I get mine?
this is great.. seems like people have been critiqueing like crazy since they've seen this announcement. anyways, how are you counting these crits, jason?
keep crittin' everyone!
Oh bribery, sounds good.
"It's too bad she won't live! But then again, who does?"
C'est tres fantastique ... will I get my pet dinosaur for my birthday ? .. uhh surprises ... Im already feeling terrible for posting so little .. I'm still swimming through all the sections of CA ... finding new things behind new cornes ...........
Ill propably be absolutly useless at being helpful .
Go dino !
what about crits in other sections jason!!!
Hehe how are you going to track it
that would take a year to count them. i'd assume only the critique section counts...Originally Posted by SJ Bennighof
I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.
i so agree jason, there is way to much ass kissing on here, everyone is to buddy buddy, and everytime i give critiques people treat me like a dick
Nathan Campbells 3 steps to drawing like a pro, 1. Sketch 2. shade. 3. highlights and ur done
This sounds fantastic, I've given 2 so far will continue so if just 100 of us members post 10 good critiques a week we'll make it? Well just in case 100 don't post I'll try to keep giving C&C as much as i can from now on!
you mean there isn't 1,000 critiques a week?? a guy leaves for a few months and everything goes to hell in a hand basket. ha ha. I'll contribute.
There was much rejoicing in the realm of the Harvest Gods when man created the beer, light could not penetrate.
Yeah, I've neglected the site a bit recently, but things have been happening. But tonight I posted like a bandit squirrel, nuts and all!!!!!!
Whatever the hell THAT means.
He who asks is a fool for five minutes,
but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.
Not to sound too negative, but to be honest, I dont really see the reason for a section only designed for people who want critiques. I mean, doesnt everyone want critiques when they post a finished work or even a work in progress? Personally, I think it'd be easier to consolidate some sections together, but thats just my opinion.
If only i had the skills to crit people.. well, ill give it a shot.
ill help as much as i can.
thanks jason. I'm glad you guys care so much about this community.
I don't want to ice down the steaming genetalia, but I don't think this will go without more art being posted on this part of the forum. There are only so many really good crits that can be written. I visit regularly (very) and after four or five good comments, no more really needs to be said (in most cases, unless someone pulls a Manky83).
I love this community and get a warm oogy feeling when someone replies that they valued my comment, but Scotty, we need more power! Hopefully folks will see this effort and start posting more.
And t-shirts; everyone would post more if they were sporting a spiffy "I helped crit a 1000 times a week and all I got was this shirt (and syphillis)" t-shirt.
Maybe we should crit the DSG, too...
i think we should crit everything... definitely including the finished section.
guys please help!! They have me chained to the sweaty back of a fat, hairy demon goat and wont let me go until ive finished counting all 1000 critiques!! MAke it easy for me to find em and post more, k?? Thanks!!
