Practice is always good advice, but understanding and knowing how to manipulate your tools is also extremely useful in this case. There is a specific method artists use to create concept-style art like that. It all revolves around the use of brushes and blending modes. Try to familiarize yourself with brushes/brush settings and how the different layer modes work, since a lot of concept artists start off by value sketching in black and white and use blending modes to layer colors on top. But you have to be substantially good at rendering things in black and white.

I just noticed that the Store no longer sells the Tank patches......
This is just wrong....... I just hope it is out of stock and that they didn't discontinue them.
this feels like a crime against nature....
I am so glad I got a patch for my vest before they were gone..........
I was going to have to get a custom one for the back anyway....

Super Large yeah... cause I'm that cool...

Went to my buddy's house today and read through the first 4 volumes of Scott Pilgrim. Good stuff, and it's fun to see how much the movie took from the series, how much was copied word for word, how much was re-arranged and how much didn't make the cut.

Gonna have to head back over and read the last 2 soon.

I read a news report while checking my email.

Why do I suddenly want to go to North Korea?

The reason probably isn't the boy with the weird face.

Wow guys... I know that the portal has had some low standards lately but even this is a little too much....

in other news I got to see Scott Pilgrim just a little bit ago and I must say it was a pretty damn good movie. I laughed threw most of it. It is really geared toward a certain audience, I admit, but I just happen to be one of those kinds of people.
I'll definitely get it when it gets to DVD

I'm all for rebooting the thread with some FP suggestions, but didn't you guys kinda want us to stop with the whole, reporting thing?

Don't know what orn and Ben are going to say, but:
- For reporting thieves and inappropriate stuff, report the pic, since we're guaranteed to look at it.
- For pointing out "shitty" artists, or discussing the legitimacy of a suspected thief, Portal Patrol, since it's a forum where people can concur or disagree.

since you can't report an artist you think is fundamentally rubbish

Also orn occasionally drops a treasure chest of pruned artists who have been hanging onto a shitty/dead branch.

I think my main point is I want to use that thread for highlighting decent artists. Sometimes the first few pages of the art portal are a bit "meh": either they're quite well known artists, or character concepts.

I hope people can use the opportunity to dig deep and uncover gems,
as opposed to only pointing out the turds.
