A possible concept art thread?

I plan to make flash sometime this year and would like to know if I could keep concept art in a seperate thread from my gallery so that it would be easier to see and keep track of input from other art regulars. Before I even go and do this and get one locked and make myself look like a jackass I figured I'd come here and ask. Do you think it's a good idea to have the seperate thread? And if not would you care to justify why?

I think if the thread is about one thing, related to itself it would make sense to keep separate.

This thread is cool! I love to see everyone's art, read every good discussion and learn more about arts. But I'm not good at English so I don't know what to discuss now. Sorry.

Guess I'll just read this thread in the shadow. Thank you Mr. BlackmargetKraig for making this.


My signature. I draw it myself.
I havn't submit any flash though. Now I'm making one. Looks like it might take some time.

you mean like a thread only relating to one of my series or what? because I was thinking of making a seperate thread with all the series universes altogether so it won't be too messy and I could have it laid out like this lounge thread (i.e. have a top title in bold to reference which series I'm talking about)

Only related to one series at a time.

Paint Shop Pro

You guys had a conversation about Paint Shop Pro versus Photoshop, but nobody actually answered my question. D=

I find them both too similar to even be one better than the other. From what I've seen they both have the same tools, same concept. Maybe just a different layout but in the end it all works the same to me. I recommend either, but then I again I don't use either of the software's wide range of tools.

I'm sad because I only have Photoshop 2.0
I feel so limited to what I should be able to do with all the cool features of newer Photoshop!

And how do you all afford flash when it is 700 DOLLARS?

I would recommend the GIMP.

But if GIMP is free, then why is Photoshop still selling?

Scrimping and saving.

What is scrimping?

PhotoShop is a lot better than GIMP in most areas.

yeah, i'm really comfortable with the brush customizations that photoshop gives. Script-fu is nice, but i'd miss my "opacity based on pressure" function too much to make a permenant switch.

also, Student discount FTW!

Why is it when everyone else tried this, it was locked/deleted, and when a mod decides to make it, it stays?

Anyway, w00t?

no need, I know there's no way a human can recreate a fractal by splashing paint around.
Maybe he found random parts of the paintings that were sort of like little approximations of what could be considered a fractal if you continued it, but that's it.

K, I have a question. First off, forgive me all I have is MS paint and a touchpad, saving up for a tablet now. Basically, I've been playing around with side-views of people for a while now, problem is, I'm not 100% sure on where the nose, mouth, and chin should go, here's a little outline of a person I made in paint, could somebody please outline the facial features?

I need Monet, to buy DeGas to make my Van Gogh. I tried to Hale a cab but my Whistler didn't Turner 'round.

EYES and EARS and MOUTH and NOEZ
i'm on a laptop with a touchpad, so i'm not even gonna attempt it.

conceptart always knows what to say.

a good thing to use for reference is your own head. trace the relations with your fingers. i've found that ear starts at the eyebrow, and ends at the base of the nose. dunno about the rest in relation to the face.

Eye is at 1/2 head, nose and ear start at eye and go down 1/2 face. Mouth lines up half way between the bottom of the nose/ear and the chin. The chin ends (and the earlobe sits) half way across the face horizontally. Also, remember the back of the head protrudes, and the neck starts 1/2 way down.

It's all about the halves.

Fractals are patterns in chaos though, so wouldn't an increased randomness be more likely to produce a fractals?

Anyway for the record, even though I don't create 'conceptual art' and I think some of the stuff done lately is the most pretentious load of horseshit around, I think some of the classic pieces are absolutely brilliant.

I guess this is a good place to discuss the question "What is art?"

Too many times have i heard answers like "everythings art" or "Art is in the eye of the beholder" and i'm getting pretty tierd of it, thats just avoiding the subject.

Why do we paint/sculpt/animate or menstruate on paper, whats the meaning of it?

I draw and paint and such because i get some sort of rush trough it, I can't tell why nor how, maybe it has something to do with me wanting to express myself. The result is a tiny piece of my mind. Every piece of 'art' might be a piece of someones mind, and maybe thats whats so intruiging with it. Why else would colors on a canvas or a shaped rock and so on be something you can look at for a while?

Art is the product and/or process of creative production, which is intended to provoke a strong emotional/aesthetic/intellectual/and visceral response. Art requires two things, intent to produce art, and creative input.

But why? Haha.

Not that i inted to stop or anything, its just that i don't understand what we get out of it.
I've thought this through many times, and i can never come up with an answer that statifies me.
