Hey Joe, Yup i'm still using the Cintiq, I guess looking at my first post I've had it nearly 4 months...crikey times flown. Anyway to boil it right down I love it. I'm used to the new drawing position now so what little RSI I was having has gone, i was able to relocate to somewhere that doesn't refl...

No worries, I'm sure there's loads more sites out there, it's just i tend to stick to just a couple of forums...i'd never get any work done otherwise ;)

Good luck!

Yeah what's the rule? Three clicks and if the user still hasn't arrived at the art you've lost them? Something like that. I can't stand websites that make you guess where the buttons are or break everything into several sub genres, each stacked under the other. I remember you did some impressive stu...

I'd like to be able to help, but i'm spread pretty thin these days. (I'm sure you've looked in some of these places but...) it might be worth looking to;

drawingboard.org
CGTalk.com
Conceptart.org

Maybe imagineFX.com , Sijun.com

They're at least places where you might be able to pick people out.

I know where you’re coming from :) Now that the web allows us to see so very easily what artists are doing all over the world it can feel like there’s a lot of pressure on your to ‘perform’ and it all moves so quickly, so it feels like there’s even more pressure to not waste time, but a lot of these...

These guys have covered a fair chunk of stuff, so i'm mindful not to cover the same ground. I'm kind of under the impression you don't know which path to take your career down, it's important to understand that the paths are interchangeable, though strong decisions may reduce the need to tread the s...

I would say 95% of what I do is digital. I still sketch with traditional media and I don’t enjoy creating line work digitally, though the Wacom Cintiq may close that gap. Working in the games industry there is no way I could deliver what is needed by using anything other than digital media. Cost is ...

Yeah that spec is perfectly okay. With regards to Wacoms i agree with what's been said, it'll open up so many doors and make the process of painting in photoshop so much more intuitive. Keep in mind that there is a learning curve of sorts. Some people don't necessarily like the feel of plastic on pl...

I'm a Concept artist in the video games industry and I've been doing this for 3 years. It's a great way of doing what you love whilst getting a stable wage which depending on your needs can be a real plus....personally i have a veracious art book addiction that needs seeing to. I echo the sentiments...

Well the distinction is there, but it’s reasonably subtle. In a lot of tribal paintings men are often depicted as squares and women as circles. Even now men are angular and women are fluid. Wall.e's design is basically that of a square and eve's an egg, so the distinction's there in the design. The ...

hehe, this is always the way with Pixar teasers, so little to go on it evokes little more than a shrug of the shoulders. Thanks for the heads up though, i'd only seen the title graphic up until now. ^____^

I finally got around to seeing Wall.e and I’m pretty disappointed. I feel they achieved more with Presto. Presto was a series of extremely fast and punchy gags, implemented in such a sleek and elegant fashion that I don’t believe I’ve seen in CGI. It had a real feel of spontaneity. The issues I had ...
