We have been talking about this site for what seems like over a year already, but we finally have the right pieces and right people involved to kick it out of the nest…!
Concept Cookie has a time slot:
This Friday Concept Cookie will be going live on the network with some fresh content and some fantastic new features to the CG Cookie network in tow. As we make sure the site is full of gas before we launch, we just opened up Concept Cookie’s Facebook page to get ready for the pre-launch online party.
Why are we telling you this now?
During the launch of the new site, we will be pulling down all the sites to push over the new gallery feature that is detailed below. We don’t want too many of you taken off guard, but of course we will have the tinychat.com/cgcookie live stream of the office going.
All new likes of the Concept Cookie page receive a free skin brush set for photoshop.
We also created a Facebook Event for the launch.
Be sure to join us this Friday on http://tinychat.com/cgcookie to see live streaming of the office during launch, our overly tired faces and us consuming a lot of coffee. You may even see a chest bump after the site goes live, or stupid office tricks.
What will Concept Cookie be covering?
The main focus of Concept cookie is to provide video education covering the basics and advanced topics of conceptual art and problem solving. We are going to be introducing Timelapse videos to watch, downloadable brush packs and some great interviews are also lined up. Below is a glimpse at some of the roughly scheduled tutorial:
- Creating an Environment in GIMP
- Working with One, Two and Three Point Perspective
- Painting an Eye in GIMP
- Drawing and Painting a Character in Photoshop
- Creating Skin Brushes for Photoshop
- Character Painting Time-lapse
Looking for Concept Instructors
With a new site we are looking for some well motivated concept art instructors. If you are interested we have our application here.
Upcoming feature: Gallery Update.
It wasn’t long after we launched the new 3.0 site that we started to see a flood of images being submitted on tutorials. Admittedly some of these were not related to the tutorial, but we sensed that artists wanted a place to show off what the software can do, and spread it around.
So, a few weeks later, some late nights and dancing with a bit of logic. We are please to announce the new “Network Gallery” feature to Cg Cookie. I won’t speak on it too much, but we do have an overview video on our Facebook page.. Muahah very sneaky on the marketing ploy I know.. But give it a look and we think you will like it. Of course if you don’t like it, instead of cursing at us, shoot us a note via support(at)cgcookie.com on how we can improve it or other features to add. I assure you the functionality of the site and this particular feature will continue to grow as the site does.. enabled by you.
Wait.. aren’t you guys pretty darn swamped with the existing sites and studio?
Answer: @#$@# yes.
Wes and Jonathan are hoping to see their families soon. So this is why we brought on Tim Von Rueden as the Site Lead for Concept Cookie. Tim will be heading up the main site, comments, posts and making sure some sexy Conception is happening.
So hope you enjoy the new addition to the family and look forward to seeing you guys on Tiny Chat this Friday.
