great concept, wonderful execution
I just wanted to take a moment to speak of the wonderfulness that is conceptart.org
Definitely worth checking out there forums to see what's up. Almost always something amazing every day. It's bad for my writing because it makes me want to abandon it and take up painting again. Just some marvelous visions of both fantasy and scifi. Stuff that's at least as good as you'll find in a Spectrum collection (although admittedly mixed in with some stuff that's not as good).
Specific threads that are blowing my mind right now:
pstraub's concept, matte, speed painting, and illustration work
alice in wonderland macabre/dark interpretations
