    How did you find conceptart.org?

    This is a question we talk about shortly yesterday in dsg/eur-chat...

    It would be interesting to hear how you came to this splendid site/community...

    For me, one of my buddies, who plan to make a pc-game, asked me if i want to make the graphics for the game. He sent me some links about conceptart and this site was one of them...the best one

    I'm posting at an Unreal Tournament related site(well, it's not UT related anymore, but used to be), and another artist that I know there(Mr. Magnetichead) PM'ed me with the address here.

    it was shortly after the opening of the site, i saw a post in either sijun or eatpoo, dunno anymore.
    it was like "there is a new site entirely about concept art, it is run by pros and they even have a forum"

    i stopped by and registered. i probably was among the first 100 people to register to the forum
    it was cool to see this place grow and grow... still not outgrowing itself (like a lot of art forums did)

    I was talking to Jester that I started drawing again and she told me that there are some interesting forums on the net. Shes said something that if I wanted some real crits and no fluffy wishywashy I should look here.

    I didn´t want to try out any other forum yet.

    I started a Comic course (Kubert) and they have a forum which I attended. I think it was late in 2001 that I found conceptdesignforum.com. Then, a bit later, someone there said that there's an "evil twin" called conceptart.org. Since I was a forum junky then (I checked at least ten regularly...) I tried it, too. It was okay in the beginning but got much better after the relaunch in July last year. Since then, it's (almost) my one and only forum (being a guest sometimes at "the evil twin" , sijun and penciljack.

    I was at the conceptdesign forum and saw a link to conceptart.org. When I went there only the title page existed; no forum. I marked it in my favorites folder and forgot all about it until about 4 months later and when I came back there was a forum going. When exactly did conceptart.org launch? I keep hearing of some big crash that had happened too but I wasn't part of the forum at the time either.

    This past summer at Ringling's PreCollege, Jeff Schwartz and Mo recommended taking a look at the artwork Andrew Jones to get an idea of how to structure my portfolio for admission into computer animation. that took me on a mad search for Andrew's work, and I quickly found the site, but I didn't start posting until January. I dont know why that is, hmm. oh well

    later,

    I just chanced upon finding this plaace from I THINK, EatPoo forum. OR maybe someone who goes to EatPoo who linked here. Anyways, I'm glad I found this little haunt, I'll have to scan my recent stuff and plug it to see what kinda responses and input I get on them.
