In this digital age things are changing; including things within the art world. Some Artists work purely through technology and create fantastic, fanciful digital art. While others are still sticking to the original mediums of paint to canvas, the digital art world should not be brushed to the side. Amazing works of art are created and shared globally through the online art world. There are a multitude of sites dedicated to the sharing of art, here are a few.
A wonderful website for dedicated artists who are looking to improve their talent and work, Conceptart is top tier. Focussing on informational posts and techniques, this is the place where a young artist with great talent would reside. Honesty is the best policy, yet being overly rude to other users is frowned upon. Be positive and sweet, and watch you art impact!

Along with monthly classes, CGSociety posts article and informational texts describing behind-the-scenes tutorials from movies in the media.
