I'm a vaguely hominid male living on the West coast of Canuckland.
Joined after finding (and buying one) teaser vids of classes offered here.
A 3D artist but have been wanting to do more traditional stuff of late.
A lot of truly talented people here! Draw on!
I was following these forums quite a while. Before I usualy use to come here to take a look to other people sketchbooks and for some other tips about tablets. I didn't wanted to create account, because all these years I had in mind that if I would create account here, I should open my own sketchbook to able motivate myself and improve as far as I could. Well I hesitated till this day, so today is the day when I say to CA community. :3
And yeah, my English isn't that good but I hope its understandable.
Another story of a long time lurker over here.
Decided to join since summer is coming and I can pretty much dedicate all of it to improving my art.
Looking forward to seeing you guys in the Sketchbook Section!!
Hi, guys. I'm Corey. Just getting started with dedicated practice in illustration. I love drawing and I hope to, eventually, get comfortable with oil paints (my efforts so far are disappointing, though I love it while I'm doing it).
I've had this account for a bit, but I don't make much of an effort to involve myself...
I'm a 3d Generalist in VFX, lots of feature film creature work (Mostly sculpting and rigging). After 7 years working in Vancouver, I'm suddenly in montreal, and I'm looking for some other people to sketch with, or at least learn the best places to sit and sketch.
I'd love to learn more about the film / video game community out here, this job caught me a little off guard, and I feel pretty stranded out here.
Send me a message if any of this garbled introduction induces any viable information in your brains...
Hello unknown friends , I have always been in love with drawing, although I don't seems very talented in this area , but the better part of this story is I have some weird imaginations, and often very good ideas. The main problem is I can't draw this ideas on the paper :'( .
You can consider me as the total beginner, I would like to improve myself as much as it's possible, I understand the key of improving is in practice, but what the hell, how am I supposed to practice when I'm going in the circle and I am always hitting the same wall.
I would like to get some basic pointers of how to improve my drawing skill? Suggest me some good books,materials, ideas etc.
Hey there, I've been a long time lurker on this site and decided to grow a pair and join up.
My art background started in the printing industry, I was in prepress for 3 years learning tons of stuff about the design programs and printing protocols. After that, I went to a design school for a few months - dropped out but will try again later on.
(being a mum and sole trader takes higher priority, lol)
In my free time, I take my visual diary with me to sketch or collect business cards/posters/brochures for inspiration. My favourite designers are Neville Brody and Paul Rand.
First off, my username is related to a name I heard in Fallout: New Vegas. That means I love video games.
I'm in my early 20s, I've had a love for drawing and music and all things 'art' for as long as I can remember. I slowly started tending to an anime-esque style of drawing in my mid-teens. This gave me a slowly growing desire to draw.
I was led here by a dude (I don't know his username, but where I met him, he was Disaster Grind) who said this is the place to be if I needed help, drawing lessons and anything related to art.
Until recently (Betty Edwards, though I'm stuck since I don't have a picture plane), I've been entirely self-taught.
Hello. I have been reading conceptart for some time now and decided to register. I like to draw but I am not a proffessional artist. I actually spend more time thinking about art than drawing. There are some interesting people and thoughts floating around here so it would be nice to participate in the debates.
Cheers! Just stumbled across this forum and joined as I found it of my interest. I´m mainly an IT nerd, but also an amateur artist with an special interest in paleo art and light Sci Fi stuff. I never been an art student, I´m basically self-taught. Hope to find some feed back and (bring or receive) good advices here.
I'm Caroline. I'm 16 and always liked art. I really want to improve, so after lurking here for a while, I finally mustered up the guts to sign up. I was on Deviantart for a while, and it's nice and all, but not exactly a place where I'm going to really improve. So I came here. I want to be more professional about my art, rip away from my pre-teen manga-esque style I've held onto for so long, and actually get BETTER. I really love art and I want the confidence to know that I could actually make it out there in the world with art.
Anyway, I'm happy to be here, if a little intimidated. I hope I'll be able to improve!
I'm a procrastinating artist/animator with little self discipline attempting yet another attempt at focusing on improving by involving myself with art focused places.
Hope to get along well with everyone and help out wherever it's needed. c:
Noticed I forgot to come in here... hello everyone ! I previously tested GFX artist which isn't bad for Feedback (unlike DeviantART), and now after years of lurking, finally coming here to do things and trying to get somewhere in concept arting I'll try to get useful to others as well of course...
I have just joined, been here before (this is a new sn since I havent been around for a long time, so shedding the old skin) but I needed a fresh and truly serious start. And this is it, I hope to gain a lot from everyone and to contribute as much as possible to this community. To future inspiration and success!
Jerik is Back...
aaaaand noone know who i am.
Jerik was my older account, all this meant was the occasional partaking in the Teen Challenges and a few Creature of the Weeks...
I'm now 20 and studying my final year as an animation student with an excessive focus into concept art and preproduction, developing a proficiency in 3D Modelling and mostly important: Illustration, thus I'm here to make some more impressive stuff for my Portfolio when i finish my studies.
Also hopefully i shall have significantly more activity just foruming... I kinda avoid forums since i had a severe addiction back in my anime fandom days, becoming a judgmental behemoth ruling the Fan art scene in South Africa with a trolly-flamey iron fist...
I'm not 15 anymore so maybe I'll play nice with others now
Now to personalize my look a bit better, hopefully when this post is noticed there'll be some siggies attached and an avatar.
Hi, I am a new member. I live in Montreal, Canada. I'm 26 years old. I'm planning to study 2d & 3d ( movies or video games) at NAD center in Montreal. If someone knows this place I would like to hear your comments.
I've been browsing CA for a long time now (this account is two years old) but only now decided that I should start posting for professional improvement. I'm a student and hope to learn a lot from the critique/feedback I receive here. Thanks!
Hello! I camed to this forum searching about les gobelins hahaha. But now i see this is a great place to improve my skills, and get evaluated. Is too much stuff in the forum though... so im kinda lost of where to start, but in the first post in this thread, there are some directions. So, pleased to meet you o/
I like birds, crocodiles, bones, human-computer interaction, ink, machines, Sherlock, and a lot of other things
I want to improve my technical skills and join the community, so, nice to meet you!
I've wanted to learn to draw for a very long time but a few months ago I finally got serious in trying to learn. I'm extremely intimidated(especially when browsing here) so I feel that if I get myself involved in this community it'll help keep me motivated and on the right track.
It's an honor to make an account here with such talented people and it's nice to meet all of you.
Good day fellas!
I'm Gijex. I'm 19 y/o and I'm studying Graphic Design. My goal is to be a concept artist or illustrator and learned to teach the people as I also have the same dream, but do not have the tools or possibilities.
I hope to learn a lot from you, get advice and criticism.
I will try to post daily new sketches to my SB.
Years ago I visited CA looking for photoshop tutorials or something... After realizing this place was on a whole other level I left. I return now with a full time devotion to visual art and improving my skills as an artist. I am 30 yrs old and looking to enroll into art school. As a self taught artist, I lack in my development of the fundamentals.
Anyway, see you around.
