    Angry Color Change?

    I was wondering if anyone agrees with me that conceptart.org needs a new background color?

    I think brown is too dull and boring to be fit for crazy artists like us!
    So.. if you think it should change.. then, i put up a vote for you to choose a new color.
    IF you think we should change, i'll set up the poll

    Hopefully the mods will see this thread and do something about the forum color scheme!

    Some real quick photoshop samples.. i know they arent perfect.. but hey.. its close enough!


    Color Change?

    Thanks for stopping by!

    So what do you think it would do to the art you are trying to view?
    Baing surrounded by a bright red would not improve things much.

    Ok...I think I just barfed.
    If you're going to make colour suggestions, don't make them so bad! The reason this is such a great colour is because it's easy on the eyes, i'd get a headache looking at those.

    Andy Warhol, is that you?!


    Those are hideous. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. And if you do want to fix it, then at least try to do something other than messing with the color and saturation in photoshop. Either go for a new theme altogether, or leave it alone.

    Quoted For Truth.

    This messege boardis designed an maintained by artist's. So I'm fairly sure they thought about this color scheme before choosing it. It's classical and has a certain maturity to it.

    i think that the colours are ok, if it was too bright or dark then the art would look darker or lighter right?
    buuuuut i think that where the heading boxes are, they could be different colours, the background is ok, just could be more interesting with like.....blue or red whatever buttons

    Claude, your intentions are good, thank you for them...But, neutral colors as backround are to make the art here look better.

    Hey, i know my photoshop changes are a bit too dramatic.. hehe..

    But the concept art forum designer can make something great out of any color!

    Looking at deviantart, CGTalk, Sijun Forums, Photo.net.. you cant help but say that Conceptart is way behind the times... i mean, it is somewhat depressing to look at..

    Let me make this easy.. would you paint your bedroom with this color?

    Also, i am not asking you to put up pink or flourescent up there.. but, a good mix of colors can make this forum look impressive!

    I agree with Aether, Black, grey and white mixtures could spice things up a lot!

    Beige is a goddamn elegant color for crying out loud, what is the matter with you, why are you so hellbent on wanting to change it.

    Da sucks for obvious reasons,
    CGtalk is too cluttery to be easily navigable,
    Sijun is clinically dead
    and I've no idea what photo.net is.
    Long live CA as is.
    Thank you.

    Beige?!!! Are you kidding me?
    My baby brother can tell that that's brown!
    This is Beige by the way:

    Color Change?

    And black is definately a color! What are you talking about? When you are choosing shoes and they ask you to pick a color, you dont say.. "i want the low value colored one"!!!
