    North Carolina Artists

    Greetings everyone, am I the only one in North Carolina? There has to be at least one or two more people. Come on, admit it. I took the first step, your not alone.

    I'm in North Carolina! I was thinking of starting a North Carolina thread, but like you said, I think there are only a few people that live here. Besides you, so far I've only seen two other members from NC. We are a rare bunch indeed!

    Hey westendgirl, thanks for posting. I was starting to think I was alone! Well, if there are only a few of us then we need to stick together. We can't let all those folks in New York and California have all the fun.

    Excellent, so what does everyone specialize in? I create using traditional mediums. I'm afraid computers are the devil when it comes to art. Of course, that's just for me. I mostly create illustrations with graphite, ink, or acrylic. I recently became interested in concept art, so I'm exploring that as a possible job opportunity as well.

    I don't have a specialty per say.

    Look at my gallery, and be the judge: http://www.m00t.net/gallery

    You have some nice images. Are you employed in the arts, or do you just work for fun?

    Im from Greensboro and currently reside in Reidsville. I do both traditional and digital art. I really dont have any of my work uploaded. Most of my traditional work I do is assignments from art class (im still in highschool). I use whatever medium I need to get the effect i want. At home I do my digital work, I 3D model and do digitial painting. I also draw alot, pretty much every day.

    It sounds as though you have a good start, Buckweisel. Do you plant to attend art school?

    moot.xk- Nice artwork and man, I wish I was in Wilmington right now!

    Buckweisel- Sounds like you're getting a lot of work done too, can't wait to see some of it if you ever get an online gallery!

    As for me, I do most of my work in traditional mediums, but I do some 3D and I'm slowly getting better at using photoshop and painter to color stuff with. I signed up for the Ladies thunderdome, so I hope I can still manage to create something good even with my beginner skillz.
    BTW Grendel Grack once again you keep on reading my mind!! I'm planning to go to the heroes con and I was going to post asking people if anyone else was going. That would be cool if there were others on Conceptart planning to go- Maybe then we could all meet together and I don't know... have a concept art cookout or something, hehe

    Yeah, westendgirl, that sounds excellent. I'm going to be selling artwork in indie island all three days. You should stop by and check out my stuff. I will be with two other artists under the title Counter Productive. You can view my art on www.darktreestudios.com

    If anyone else is going to Heroe's Con, we should meet up!

    Oh and I'm participating in the ladies thunderdome as well. I think it will be one hell of a show. I'm looking forward to seeing some great stuff.

    I was planning to go to the School of Communication Arts in Raleigh, but I dunno might not be able to afford it.

    Grendel - I'm an art student at a community college.

    Westendgirl- Thanks, Wilmington is nice.

    BuckWeisel - I'm considering the design+art degree at NC state.

    No hero's convention for me. Charlotte is a 3 hour drive and I'm too busy with school and my weekends of dancing.

    Awww, c'mon moot.xk. It's not a party until we can get at LEAST three people.
    You're gonna be missing out. I guess this just leaves all the pressure on Buckweisel. Let's see, moot.xk already used school as an excuse so you have to come up with a new one. Come on westendgirl, back me up here.

    Hey... some of us have other extra curricular activities. I'm an underground dancer and weekends are my time to bust out. Expression comes in many different shapes and sizes.

    I go to CLT sometimes to hit up clubs and meet with other dancers, so I'll try to arrange something with you guys one day.

    You guys are always welcome at my place in Wilmington also. We have plenty of inspirational landscape.

    Yes, It's a comic convention held in charlotte on June 30th to July 2nd at the charlotte convention center. Their website is here. You should try and make it, and no kidnapping is involved! But it would be nice to find other CA members that are going because that would make it all the more fun.

    moot.xk, sorry to hear you won't be going then. Maybe next year? Well it's nice to know at least I have connections to someone at the beach!

    Okay, so that leaves me going, grendel grack will be there, and maybe buckweisal provided he doesn't need a permission slip for his parents to sign. heh just kidding, but seriously though buckweisal you should go with your friends or something, you'll probably enjoy it! So perhaps I'll just post in the lounge to see if anyone else is going and maybe we can draw in some more members.

    If you're in to comic books, buckweisel, then Heroe's Con is for you. Just be aware that there is an admission fee, so if you're tight on cash you may want to sell a kidney. They bring a nice price on the black market these days.

    moot.xk. forgive my ignorance, but what is underground dancing? It sounds uncomfortable.

    Sorry to keep asking questions, I just like to plan out stuff like this really good.

    What day are we meeting up and are yall planning on going more than one day.

    But to keep this thread slightly interesting and not full of my Q&A, I think we should introduce ourselves a tad more formally/indepth.

    Hey, Buckweisel, ask as many questions as you want. No one's keeping track. I'll be camping out at my table all three days of Heroe's Con. You are all welcome to use that as a meeting place, or we can pick some kind of landmark. I forget what my table number is, so I'll have to get back to you about that.

    As far as my personal info is concerned, My name is Kim and I'm starting out in the illustration business plus I do fine art on the side. I enjoy all types of anime, RPGs, and comics to a certain degree. Like Buckweisel, I've been involved with art all my life. Drawing is my pleasure but I also paint as well. I prefer traditional mediums especially graphite, colored pencil, and acrylic although I have experience with a wide array of different materials.

    Come on folks! Let's not let this thread die. We're a rare flock of birds and we need to stick together! Let's brainstorm about some topics we can discuss:

    What is the future of the Arts in the southeast?

    Do you think that it is necessary to move to New York or California to succeed?

    What do you guys want to do at Heroes Con?

    Would anyone like to start a NC sketchbook thread?

    Does your family support your art?

    I could go on like this forever. PLEASE, someone write back!

    1) I beleive the arts in the southeast will continue to be craft-oriented rather than just the fine arts. pottery, textiles, metal working, landscaping, and small crafts is what I think is the most common art forms found in the southeast. Also I know NC does alot with pottery and the performing arts. I would hope that the arts in NC evolve with technology cause its hard finding a job as a CG artist here.

    2)No. While these places offer many employment oppurtunities for artists of all kinds, (i only can speak educatedly from a digital standpoint) the amount of game companies and animated movie studios are growing all over the country and soon there will plenty of places to go other than NY or CA.

    3)I wouldnt mind spending some time looking through comic books. Im a fan of comic art and I would like to bring home some inspiration. We can all go eat dinner or somthing too.

    4)Yes thats a good idea. Ill contribute when I can.

    5)Yep. My dad backs my art and choice in a art related carreer.

    Hey Buckweisel, I agree that the south focuses mainly on craft-oriented art. Unfortunately, I don't see this changing anytime soon. With the onslought of retired Floridians that have invaded our state, I fear that NC wil become the craft capital of the world. This isn't bad, except for the floridians, but if people like us attempt to make it in this state, landing a job in a fine/design art area becomes that much more difficult. Some pockets of opportunity exists, but these are few and far between and generally cater to companies and organizations outside of the southeast. Thus, the job is here, but the product is sold elsewhere, therefore, not perpetuating any market in NC. It's depressing.

    I think dinner would be great. I'm not too familiar with Charlotte, so if anyone has any suggestions, that would be excellent.

    We need at least one more person to make the effort of a sketch thread worth our time. Although, if that doesn't happen I guess we can just post here.

    Also, I'm glad to hear that your father supports your art, Buckweisel. Not too many folks have it so easy. My mom was supportive for the most part, but I had to fight tooth and nail to go to school out of state (I'm originally from Georgia).

    By Hooters you mean East dorm, I'm assuming. And for an extra fee you can get that folded biscuit cooked right on your chest.

    I think the closest I have ever come to eating at a Hooter's was fighting with an ex-boyfriend in the parking lot. Needles to say, I won the argument. I also feel it is needless to say, I have never considered eating there in the first place.
