Hullo. I'm a newb.
This site scares the hell out of me.
I'm here to find inspiration, and to gain advice.
I don't think I'm very good...
all here for the same thing so enjoy, we can only benefit from others
Long-time lurker here. Just a music student who finally signed up to take advantage of all this site offers. I would eventually love to create a graphic novel...not looking to make money off it though. I deal mostly with graphite and sculpting, but It'd be cool to learn how to paint using Photoshop and the like.
I have a lot to learn! Can't wait to get started.
Hello all, im 14 year old digital artist/renderer from Finland. I wanted to join on CA, so i could learn some new technics or photo effects from others. I have been browsing CA for a while but now i finally registered to Concept art. So thanks.
Hi, my name is Jake. I'm twenty-two years old and live in Columbia Missouri.
I've spent the last three and a half years working toward my BFA Degree (with a focus in drawing and a supporting area of painting) at Columbia College, and in a year I will graduate. Ninety-five percent of the art I produce is medium/large traditional media as that is what's approved by the fine arts professors. When I was younger I did a lot of amateur comic books and became pretty well acquainted with using Photoshop 7 to elaborate line drawings, although when my hard drive failed several months ago, I lost Photoshop (still can't find the key) and the art I made with it.
This website was recommended to me by another student because I love concept art and will soon enough have to turn my degree into a job, so I'd like to beef up my portfolio and work towards applying my degree to a profession.
Hello all, I found this site a couple weeks ago but this is my first chance at checking it out. I have absolutely no education on art, Middle or High School and my life is way to hectic to try and go to school for it. I have already learned a lot just by looking at others artwork and i hope to learn more as well as find information on the possibilities of a career with only self taught education.
I been lurking around for a few weeks now and finally decided to register. This is a wonderful community that I hope I can be a constructive part of. I'm 19, going for an AA degree in Digital Design at a community college, but I can't decide if I want to go to an actual art school. Relatives tell me I should, then other relatives tell me there's no money in art. Seeing things on this site has changed my views about that last statement. Hopefully I'll be able to figure out which direction I want to go!
Hello there !
I've been browsing this site for 1 year or 2, to get inspiration, or just to look at some awesome art.
I'm 16 and I'm from France, I always used to draw and I got a wacom tablet some days ago and I thought it was the appropriate moment to sign up here.
See ya !

Are You An Artist Wo Likes To Draw Erotic Pictures With A Sci-Fi Perspective? Want More Exposure?!? For Free? If So We Want You!
After the success of the publication Fantasy Erotic Art, The book's publisher ILEX given me the task of compiling artists for a book highlighting Sci-Fi Erotic Art. All interested artists should send a single piece of compatible artwork in order to be included this new volume.
As well as pictures featuring the female form it would be good to get a little bit of space beefcake as well for the gay/female readership. The general rule of thumb for selecting images is (ideally) full colour and we should keep to “taste and decency” parameters ie, nipples OK, occasional female full frontal ok, no penises, certainly no erections!
As ever with publishing art, the golden rules are:
1. It must never have been published in another art book (Spectrum, Ballistic Publishing, or an artist's published sketchbook).
2. It must have been created in the last 18 months.
3. They must own the publishing rights to the artwork.
Each artist will sign a document stating the above. We already have a template for this. Without signing it we won't be able to include your artwork.
This is a great chance for prolonged exposure for upcoming and established artists alike. Along with the artwork you must attach a 150 word caption, ideally explaining your inspiration, methods and thoughts, plus a 500 word introduction.
The Format for the written pieces is as follows:
Materials used (i.e. magic marker on bristol board, scanned in and coloured in Photoshop 7.0)
Commentary/Background information (Ideally from the artist, but could be from me with your permission) What were your inspirations, thoughts, and what was the creative process behind the art. Plus comments on the art style, composition and themes.
In exchange we will put your website and contact details (direct or agent) in the directory at the back, so it becomes a catalogue for art directors and ad agencies. This has worked very well in the past and achieved many paying gigs for artists included in the books. Plus, you get a copy of the book.
Specs: The images need to be 247mm on the shortest side and RGB TIFFs at 300dpi.
For answering queries and to mail your submissions, email me at email@example.com.
Hi! I'm new. Even though I've had an account for a while.
I am the Squirrel Emperor! BOW BEFORE ME!
Hey everyone! I'm new here too,
it seems great!
Something New comes our way. Happy New Year Concept Art patrons, Hi!
I'm a design student and sci fi geek from Copenhagen.
One of my promises for 2010 was to join this forum to hopefully become better at drawing.
I try to maintain the rhythm of at least one sketch a day, and two per week fit for presentation. School is starting again soon and the frequency will probably drop a little bit, but that's because I'm learning some other useful things
Nevertheless I'm here and I'm fresh.
Oh, and I am into Psychedelica, Metal Hurlant, Krautrock, Philip K. Dick. That sorta thing.
Hi, everyone. Another newbie here. ^^'
I'm Darcy from California. I'm still in high school, but I'm applying for art colleges. I want to go into illustration, particularly comic books.
Hi, new person here!
I'm an animation student, although I'm also interested in illustration. A lot of my art is anime/manga-based (I'm sorry!), but I really want to improve on my figure work so that I can individualize my characters better, and also stylize it more easily (I like my manga with a touch of realism).
I'd like to be a comic artist someday. I'm really pleased to have found this place, and I hope it can help me improve.
Hi, name's zeejay. I work as an in-house graphic designer for my family's company. My passion is art and design. Been seeing the site for awhile and I decided to join up. I hope I can learn more skills to improve my work.
Happy to be here.
new to concept art ..love what isee here and hope to learn a lot from you all
Finding posting pictures a bit confusing however.... tried to upload some god knows where they went
Hi guys! I'm a high schooler and I enjoy doodling on my free time, but recently I've begun to develop an interet to further my skills. I found this site and I was shocked to find younger people completely kicking my ass so I thought i'd join cause I want to improve and be as good as the pros some day! I'm looking forward to participate in the forums and post my art later so I can get some feedback. See you around.
Hey guys, I'm Sean. I'm from Australia and I'm really interested in practicing my art skills. You could say i'm a beginner (only art I have done was in junior high school, and as a child up until now). I'm willing to learn!
Hi guys! OK im not sure if im exactly new here, i registered about a year ago to be exact but haven't posted anything here. I just for the first time had a look at the forums and figured out how they work and i must say there quite a number of talented people here that i would like to know.
Why hello there, buddies.
I've been lurking the forums for a long time now and figured it's about time to start to post here, cuz' I will be able to interact with the art community and improve my skills. And stuff.
I dunno. I'm the worst at presenting myself.

Good day, lads and lasses. My name is Zulfahmi, you may call me Fahmi. I'm 19 years old and I came from Malaysia.
I love drawing so much. I've been doodling for fun all my life without any guidance (I am nowhere near professional), only now I've begin to take drawing seriously.
Japanese style greatly influenced my drawing but I could also do caricature (Although rarely). Digital painting holds a great amount of interest in me. I'm not very good at colouring, it's my biggest weakness which I hope of overcoming.
The reason why I join this wonderful community is to seek more knowledge and to better myself in hope of achieving my dream, that is to become an excellent artist.
I hope we could all get along and had a great time together.
