    this is very debatable. All depends on your personal tastes. Many artists bring many different aspects to the table and different artists have subjects that they are better at...

    but for a good start, just click on any of the artists in those little thumbnails above.

    I disagree that personal tastes is enough to cause any controversy because developed artistic style embodies technical skill. I would define a "top" concept artist by their skill, working experience, popularity and artistic influence. In terms of popularity and influence with the younger crowd, the pros on DA, CA.org and CGTalk probably have the lead, but beyond that I really can't say.

    I agree with skeiff here,
    I mean its hard for to day whos the best.
    When I was a kid , one week I would say hes my fav. artist , then the next week I would say she is my fav. Now they all get equal respect from me.

    correct me if i am wrong, but i think the spirit of anubis713's question/thread
    was to find out who the current biggest names in the industry IE the competition..lol...and not who the best artists are historicaly (clearly way to subjective and unaswerable)

    not sure but im asuming this question has more to do with the business and of art.

    just my take.

    Correct me if I am wrong but evaluating the biggest artist or whatever in history and present (as well as future) is highly subjective. I don't see how having a specific time frame can change that.

    I will say that what kingshai and mario are right.

    The spirit of my thread was to find out who people thought were the current biggest names in the industry....

    I look back, and yes my thread was a little to vague I guess, and threw a couple of you off.
    Sorry.

    Anubis; You aren't improving if you keep wasting your time here in the lounge! Go start a sketchbook before you become a Lounge-monkey. Post critiques for other members- anything you can do to contribute.

    Your Lounge to Art posting ratio should ideally be 1:1. Many proffesionals on here have a 1:20 lounge to art ratio.

    hehe!

    I guess it does seem like that huh?

    I may be taking this whole school thing all too serious, but it is so important to me that I learn every ounce there is to know. (Even though it is incredibly impossible.)
    I want to be a great artist, and it is fun learning things from other people such as you guys here.

    Well, I will say this buddy, I will def. put up some sketches in a sketchbook seeing how I do draw everyday. I have been drawing more from life than ever, and learning a great deal from it. I never realized how much drawing from life helps you. In high school I despised assignements or requests for drawing from life... but now... Now I enjoy it. It's insane!!



    I will soon have a sketchbook on here.
