Update!

There's a bunch of challenges run by yours truly over on the small but growing, honest but lovely forum permanoobs. Everyone is welcome to join and learn together! Go here! forums.permanoobs.org/viewforu…

Most importantly though, check out all the awesome sketchbooks O___O forums.permanoobs.org/viewforu…

______________


Hey everyone!

Some of you might remember the old days on conceptart.org when everyone would post all the things they drew every day and kick each other's butt and give critique and get motivated over seeing how much everyone around you would be improving. For the last years, there hasn't really been a place to get that kind of motivation any more.

I made a small forum to rekindle that kind of helpful atmosphere. It's a really small community, just for posting practice work and getting critique from others. A bunch of great people are already there posting their daily stuff and kicking each other's butt. Obviously I'm there too, updating every day with studies and drawings and so on.

If you're looking for a place to get your ass kicked with motivation and your head filled with insights from others, you're welcome to join.

forums.permanoobs.org

So to those burning to get better, I'll see you there! Everyone else is also welcome to come lurk of course <3


Edit: Here's my own thread full of sketches and stuff that I update daily! forums.permanoobs.org/viewtopi…
And I also just made an account on artstation - follow me if you want! <3 www.artstation.com/artist/alge…

I really enjoy this initiative. I miss those busy crowded foruns like CA.org during the forum's golden age and many others. Unfortunately, all of them a victim of a behemoth called facebook. 
All the forums I used to go felt victim of the fucking facebook and are now empty and silent. People are so addicted to direct private chat and to keep promoting themselves with instant feedback from their closest friends that they forgot, or become too spoiled, to face the tough crusade of promoting yourself with several, equally competitive strangers, only using on your capacities, personality knowledge. The facebook makes its success by keeping people on their very close inner circles of friends, giving and receiving praises very frequently. They learned from orkut that a big flow of strange people can ruin the experience, and from myspace that too many friends and activities can overrun the user's time and patience. That's why facebook is so easy to enjoy: It is is segregating people in small pockets of close friends, where you see a small and manageable flow of predictable and funny little curiosities and keep talking with the same known and pleasant people over and over without any discomfort whatsoever.

The age of the forums is over, but as an old forum enthusiast I admire the persistence. Maybe the more hardcore will keep the fire. Maybe in a couple of internet ages the tide will change. That would be good.

Thanks for posting this, it's helpful to look around the forum and get some nice inspiration and resources (just what I did with CA, I'm not sure about how is it now but I'm always looking at old posts), although I think I'm too much of a noob to join and be useful :(
Oh well, anyway, thanks, I'm glad you are growing a new community, a lot of great artists don't get noticed here and can't get much feedback.

what, does conceptart.org no longer provide that kind of motivation? I'm not asking to be mean, I just can't tell if that place does or does not offer that, which I would find weird if it didn't, I thought it did.

So possibly, CA is a 'let's push each other to be as awesum as we can at our arts, and maybe show off to employers' kinda place? I ask because I don't always grasp the community atmosphere of some sites. but this notion is cool.

no no more like lets kick each others but and get better, for employment nothing beats a DA portfolio :p You will end up posting everyday, looking at artists working harder will kick your but with motivation. At last making some friends and a classroom like environment, its all good :la:

And i totally agree with you about conceptart.org, the moment i felt i was ready to join it, i felt so sad when seeing how dead the place was...

Dude, this is top notch thinking. I need to start a sketchbook here because I, too, need the kind of feedback and motivation to get better. I don't get it from DA. I don't get it from Tumblr. My drawings that I do at my day job aren't relevant much to what I do personally so the feedback I get from my art directors is only so helpful to me.

I'm pretty sure I'm not creative enough with my sketches to get any comments on your site. Although, I do think it's a shame DA doesn't have a thread where you can post sketches without worrying about titles, descriptions, keywords, categories and crap like that.

I absolutely love the idea, just as I love how you describe the old days at conceptart.org (it's unfortunate that it has died, and half the people left are sadistic trolls).  I would love to be part of this community you've set up, the challenges, the feedback, but I just can't bring myself to join yet another website, especially another startup. 

I wish it could be here, as a group on DA so it'd be much easier to keep track of and participate, but I also recognize that the structure does not work at all with DA's.

Hm, anyone know of a group like that on DA?  One dedicated to regular 'challenges' (not 'contests' that are for fanservice, but contests which push you toward professional development), and a focus on strong feedback?  I doubt there is- but I'd love to see a 'conceptart.org' here on DA.  It'd be so much easier to participate and track, than signing into several different sites to see what they're all up to and seeing which ones to participate in.

Muss man jeden Tag etwas posten? Ich fange gerade erst an wieder ein bisschen Spaß und Vertrauen ins Zeichnen zu bekommen, und das letzte was mir helfen würde wäre unnötiger (Perfektions)-Druck. Aber an hilfreicher Kritik, oder Tips und Tricks, oder auch material/technischen Fragen und Antworten wäre ich schon interessiert.

Thank you for posting this. You are correct, as the communities have been difficult to get feedback from for me too. I would be happy with critiques, but even the premium critique option here doesn't really seem to reach anyone for me.

Just a quick question, I would love to comment on other people's work, but is it only allowed to comment if you have critique? I don't feel like my art level is that high enough to give any worthwhile critique haha
