Hey guys, what forums are you guys visiting now to post WIPs and such? I just got back into doing more painting and wanted to participate in an active forum community again. Thanks!

Hmm...
Maybe you should post a picture here and then we might answer your question.

Hi Tzan,

Please tell. Haha I'm not sure how good or friendly other forums are :/

Here's my WIP..although this is now the wrong section to put it in. I am having at little trouble lighting her wings and making it look like real feathers. I'm using a bunch of reference already to try to help but it's proving difficult for me. Also any other help with lighting would be appreciated.

Well this is really the only art forum I visit.
It was the best and I'm not a quitter Smile
So 20 years from now, it will be me and the other 3 guys posting dirty jokes from our nursing homes.

I dont think Deviant Art does critic.

Maybe somebody else knows of a very special place.

Now if we could trick half of the thousand lurkers to post a pic...

Muahaha.. there are OTHER art forums?!

Yeah, I don't know what you're talking about. The pic is nice. I like sex. The feathers probably need more tiny brushstrokes that follow their growing direction. And less round blobs, that looks less like feathers to me. The girl looks good, but her blade should be shiny or rusty, but not just one color. And its handle looks a bit like it has an "emboss" filter on it.

Oh yeah, I don't even do art any more. I'm a car mechanic :p

I know you want an expert recommendation, but I haven't spent time on any of these places. But here is a good list of art forums to check out.

Funny how Sijun is still top 5 search result on google...None of those forums are very active either, deviant art has a lot of random folks posting. cgtalk/conceptart seems very slow as well

I know a few ppl here who turned towards different professions haha. I'm a game developer trying to get back into art now. Thanks for the comment Shizo, are you still doing art on the side, since you're obviously browsing this forum still?

I redid the wings because yeah they didn't look quite right.
