ConceptArt.org is a nonprofit company founded by Jason Manley, Andrew Jones and Coro Kaufman. It includes a forum, targeted towards professional artists working for the entertainment industry, but is generally welcoming towards neophytes too.Occasionally, artists will come in from DeviantArt expecting to be bitch-slapped into submission. Apparently, that's the sort of reputation the site has over there. They do have a Critique Forum, new users are usually given a fair critique by whoever has spare time, which is sometimes nobody, a fact that the mods keep working to change.
This website provides examples of:
- Concept Art: Once the primary function of the site, now more of an artifact title.
- Doing It for the Art
- Hard Work Hardly Works: Averted.
- It's Not Porn, It's Art
- Lazy Artist: Part of the reason the site exists is to kill this trope.
- The Proud Elite: As far as artists go anyway.
