  Hello! Here my introduction...
Posted by: Perdison - 07-22-2020, 02:13 AM - Forum: INTRODUCE YOURSELF - Replies (1)

Hi guys! I'm from Indonesia and I'm beginner in art. I'm looking for platform to post my improvement and I feel Crimson Dagger suits me me most since other platform is so intimidating. My goal is to make art that have strong story telling and bring emotion to viewer. It sound so big and I don't if I can accomplish that goal but I'll try anyway.

So with that said, thank you for reading this. Sorry for my english. I'm looking forward for your feedback guys.

  Hello everybody
Posted by: back2drawing - 07-17-2020, 08:02 PM - Forum: INTRODUCE YOURSELF - Replies (4)

Hi everyone, 

Nice to meet you! I am an amateur artist, actually a beginner. I have never had any art studies, but I used to draw a lot when I was young until the age of 13-14 and had a real passion for it. Unfortunately, as I became older due to time, studies and jobs somehow left the drawing behind. 

Now at the age of the 39, I am trying out one more time, hopefully more seriously, to draw and become better on it. I am looking to connect with other artists and possibly through this forum better my art by looking other artists and also seeking help.

I hope that's ok for you guys to post my work here and seek out advice and possibly help. I still don't know if I want to target such a high goal of being a professional artist but I certainly want to better my art as much as possible. Looking forward to meeting you all!

  Guess it's time I introduced myself
Posted by: Zarkatos - 07-02-2020, 04:02 AM - Forum: INTRODUCE YOURSELF - Replies (1)

So yeah, guess I never introduced myself. Recently joined here after Conceptart.org shut down. 


I always dreamed of becoming a concept artist since I was 12 years old, I made a bunch of , let's say it awful sketchbooks on conceptart.org, (it's fine if you never see them lol) I have the dedication and willpower, but I definitely lack a lot of the talent and speed of learning many other artists possess, But we all have our own speeds and our only rival is truly ourselves.                                                                                                                                                                                                 

I've always believed I can make up for it if I work extra hard. Only recently have I been able to afford courses, growing up I was moved from foster home to foster home, so art was my only escape and solace, I've never taken an actual art class until recently and I battle with health problems that I inherited through genetics, so I can't work as hard as I used to, but luckily making art isn't as physical as other jobs. I can honestly say my life hasn't been easy, both in the system and afterwards working night shifts to survive, but it inspired me to work harder, though I have had times when I didn't know if it was worth it. 


I''m very thankful for all help and advice from other artists, and it's nice to be part of a community like this again now that conceptart.org is shut down, It's great to see a place where artists can all grow together, I just hope I can reach my dreams one day, and that I'll be able to make art that I'm truly proud of. Until last year, I quit art completely for several years so I still feel a bit rusty here and there.


-Sorry for the long winded post lol

  Hi there
Posted by: Alexiel - 07-01-2020, 10:24 PM - Forum: INTRODUCE YOURSELF - Replies (2)

Hi, my name is Alex. I've been in many art communities along the years like Conceptart.org but never participated much. I used to draw a lot as a kid and a teenager but eventually stopped even though the dream of reaching a good skill level never left.
I have decided that it was high time I actually do something about it instead if telling myself that I will do it "one day".

After not drawing for so many years I am basically starting from scratch and feel a bit lost. Hopefully being part of a community will help me stay on track.

I would like to eventually be good at both painterly digital illustrations and comics style drawing (complete with pencilling, inking and colouring). I draw mostly characters but I would like to learn to draw environments too.

Nice to meet you.

Posted by: Thomas - 06-28-2020, 04:47 AM - Forum: INTRODUCE YOURSELF - Replies (8)

    Hello there. I was a lurker of these types of forums and communities for a long while, and thought that no matter how much i postpone it, i still like these communities enough, to join in. 

Some bullet point style description to avoid unneeded walls of text. Despite this, i think i still ended up with a wall of text.

  • Working in an unrelated job, and art is a strong hobby going for passion my end.
  • Love traditional, but, dabbling into digital here and there.
  • Would love to get my foot in, down the line, into this world, because it always intrigued me.
  • Was a frequent watcher of live-streams from Johannes Voss(algenpfleger) - Same age as me(damn i am getting old) - and several other livestreamers back then. (remember livestream.com? when it was still with the yellow(?) background years back?) His sketchbook on conceptart.org, back then, really impressed me, and i found it quite inspiring.
      --- Around that time, i was dedicated(maybe a bit crazy) enough to do some digital paintings with a mouse. Will post  some select stuff here also, although you can see them in my deviantart page also, below---
  • Took a huge, several years worth of break(3-4? something like that). - life happened mostly -
Long story short, love the work people put here. I will post my own stuff here too down the line. Although the skill of a lot of people over here, far outweigh my own, i think i will learn some stuff from here that will be very helpful to my growth in this skill set. 

Ah, apropos, my interests are in visual storytelling(maybe graphic novels --> waaay  in the future), and illustration with a touch of old school approaches.

Newbie question: New attachment, and the images will appear in the post, yes? (this is for the sketchbook i will open here in the following days).

Hello,

My name is Kaitlin, and I used to be a member of Conceptart.org. My username there iirc was IioiI. I discovered Crimson Daggers by searching for a character design generator on Google. I found Crimson Daggers and discovered that it is an art forum. I've been looking for one since Conceptart.org dissolved into cyberspace. 

My goal here is to get better than I am now. Way better. Some of my favourite concept artists/ illustrators are: Ji-hyun Ro, Toshiaki Takayama, Jungmin Jin, Zeroing, Cashile, and Daeho Cha. I would like to be as good as them someday. My dream is to be a concept artist specializing in character design or an illustrator.

  Hiya!
Posted by: Timacious - 06-13-2020, 04:38 PM - Forum: INTRODUCE YOURSELF - Replies (2)

I'm Tim and I've found my way into your community via a youtube lecture posted by Amit Dutta and I was very intrigued to be a part of what you guys are doing. Ive been drawing doodles and scribbles as long as I can remember but last year I started to take things more seriously and whilst I find great solitude in learning art myself I cannot help to think that learning in a group would be so much more fun.

A little short introduction about me, my name is Tim and a guy from Sweden in his early twenties and my biggest passions is animals, good food and good health, digital arts and video games, I do love beuty aswell I can stare at it for ages. The main software I use for painting is krita. I'm also into 3D where I mainly use blender as my tool where I'm modelling and sculpting mostly. On daytime I study at the community collage to get enough points for uni, due to that I dropped out since I needed to figure out what I wanted to do  in life and it turns out like I wanted to stick with the original plan finnish school and become a production artist within 3D


I'm not sure what I can bring to the community more than good spirits and a few crappy jokes every now and then and perhaps a few bucks a year. What I do know is that I wish to learn alot from my fellow artists.You see I'm looking too participate in a highly prestigious school for cgi and animation and they demand that every student has a really good understanding of the fundamental 2D and storytelling so I hope that I can gather enough practical knowledge to build myself a good enough portfolio to dare enroll into their Computer graphics programme.

Sincerely Tim Lindbergh.

Hey Crimson Daggers,

My name is Trevor, and I'm joining because I am interested in finding a platform to share my progress in digital art and hopefully find some like-minded people along the way. My key interests are in comic books, illustration, and concept art.

I graduated from the Alberta University of the Arts in 2015 (back then it was known as the Alberta College of Art and Design) with a Bachelors of Fine Art focusing in Printmaking (silkscreening and lithography primarily, although I haven't done much since then due to a lack of access to the equipment; I also bookbind). Over 8 years I worked at 4 different art supply stores, so if anyone has any technical product questions or is interested in recommendations please hit me up, I always love talking about art supplies. I also managed a comic book store for a few years, and absolutely LOVE talking about comics! I'm currently rereading DCs The Flintstones by Mark Russell and Steve Pugh, recently picked up the four issue mini series Unstable Molecules about the real people who inspired the Fantastic Four by James Sturm and Guy Davis, my favorite book is Asterios Polyp by David Mazzucchelli, and am a lover of all things Hellboy (praise Mignolia!). I am also a member of an actual-play rpg podcast, House of Bob, although I haven't recorded with the group in some time due to scheduling issues.

Last year I was diagnosed with ADHD, and at 32 I am coming to terms with how difficult it has been for me to try and act like someone who doesn't. At the best of times I overwhelm myself by trying to do everything at once, and struggle to finish anything. Now that I know my brain is just wired differently I've been making strides with goal setting and completing personal projects. I have enrolled in a technical school to become a hairstylist and have a job at a local salon as an apprentice. I've come to terms with making the decision I won't be paying my bills with my art, but I can still be passionate about making art! I will finish my comic book aspirations, and learn how to digitally paint and draw along the way (which is why I am here!)


I have a Huion Kamvas GT-156HDV2 which I am planning on using while working through some of Ctrl+Paints tutorials, and an iPad Mini 5 with the apple pencil which I use fairly regularly for hair styling school.


Here is some of my art!
