This group is going offline....Dear Concepteez,
It is with regret I have to say that the group that was born out of nothing and helped us all get to know each other has unfortunately run it's course and we just don't have the resources or the energy to support the running of this group anymore.
This group was really fun, I personally learnt a lot by hanging out with the coolest artists in the world and now the social media has evolved enough to allow us to easily host contest without much of the admin that DA requires. I had a chat with monkeybread and he eluded to this fact, I just wanted to see it for myself.
What is going to happen to the gallery you ask?
Well, the folders are still going to stay there for inspiration but the admins are no longer to keep a watch since that in itself requires countless hours which I'd rather they used somewhere else.
Will I change my mind?
I'm definitely open to ideas, but you have to be committed if you want to take over this group. If you just want to have a laugh, please s

Friday Feature 18th May 2018Dear Concepteez,
What constitutes a winning feature?
Is it the ability to solve a problem, or to tell a story using a still frozen frame in time, is it marketing or fundamentals that make us stare at a piece for longer than two seconds?
From looking at the featured images this week it is clear that every artist enhanced the emotional appeal or hooked us in a way that makes us want to explore further and dive deeper into the meaning behind the brush strokes.
This fluffy creature looks so jovial that you'd want to hug it, only problem is that it may also kill you. But heck, life's too short and he looks too happy, let's be friends. Kaboom by Petrauskas is a fine example of an artist who is seeking more thrill in their life, the exaggerated portions, the light shape against the dark background and the sharp pointy nails tell us exactly what we don't want to hear. So big, so bold & so beautiful it p

Contests, Prizes, Lions Tigers and Bears
Firstly, I'd like to wish you all a very Happy New year, I hope you're all well and are having a magnificently creative 2016
Now I've been on Hiatus for a few months due to moving for a new job, then participated in a rather embarrassing and costly pc explosion.
Gourger has been fighting tooth and nail to keep this group running, he's done a fantastic job so far and we're very excited at what comes next.
Now it's time to get cracking.
We'll be starting up Contests, starting anew with exciting things to be won, friends to be met, collaborations, critique and themes with a twist.
But first we need your input, this has always been a group focused on our Concept Art community and we'll be working towards achieving more with that goal in mind.
So any suggestions you (yes you) have then we're all ears, we welcome all and any feedback. This includes;
Merry Xmas 25_12_2015Hi everyone, It have been a tough year, and the next one I'll be, for someone, even tougher. But never give up your dream ! Don't let the life drive your way out from your goals, but work hard to be the driver of your own goals. If you've to do a choice, no matter how hard it could seams to you, do it now ! Because there wont be another time.
Be proud of yourself and your own achievements, but also be really critic about your lacking. Know yourself is the hardest things, and you can spend an entire lifetime without discover nothing, but you've to try to be honest with you. This is the only way to be honest with the others, and that is the only things that really matters.
There is an ancient quote that says " In medio stat virtus ", which means : In the middle lies the virtue. I truly believe this could be a good purpose for the next year. So embrace your present and look what you've on the balance, think your next move without be afraid to fall down, is not how we fall, but how we rise

Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacksI decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.
I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).
This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!
Regular Payments / ABs
Some believe that Paypal does not help in disputes over digital goods but a policy

Printed Minky Reviewedit to add: yes the printed minky is washable! I didn't wash mine, but according to spoonflower "Wash separately in cool or warm water using a gentle machine cycle. Machine dry using a low temperature or permanent press setting and remove promptly to avoid wrinkles." Although please don't machine wash a plush, ahah. Just the fabric.
So I recently got the chance to play with printed minky! Here's a sort of review about it
Bought from: spoonflower.com
Price: $28/yrd. Very expensive, but for a very versatile product of this quality it's definitely justified.
Shipping: Only $6 to Canada, with tracking, took about a week and a half to arrive once shipped, no duties. A+
File prep: spoonflower has very simple requirements that are easy to follow. I scanned my pattern pieces, cleaned them up and colored them, then I copied them into a file that was set to spoonflower's specifications (150dpi, set to the width of minky. I added length as I needed it). To make sure my pieces
