    Hello! I was referred to this website by an old friend and was wondering if any of you could help me. I have browsed around game renders and have seen some quality work in the short time I have been here, but are there any websites that include more "premium" talent?

    Personally, I believe that there is better talent in communities like this compared to some (and I am generalizing here) with college educations. Basically, I am just curious to see what some of the more experienced undiscovered artists/designers can create.

    Thank you.

    Thing with communities like these is that you have a very mixed crowd :)
    if you really want more professionalism, you should look into sites that provide a more showcase like behaviour (like deviantart)

    DeviantART/CG.

    Best 2 communities you'll ever need for undiscovered people.
    Across forums, when it comes to tags etc. everyone graphic orientated one is practically the same since...heck, they're populated by the same people.

    I shall rephrase what I said:

    I am looking for artists and designers, and If i like what I see (namely large pieces that would work with shirts), they would be compensated for permission to use their work.

    Thank you for mentioning deviant art, but what is CG?

    CgTalk. Similar to Deviantart, it's also a place where artists showcase their abilities :)

    If you're looking for concentrated talent.
    Depthcore is simply the best place you can look.

    However, they're very well known and publicised artists not quite the "Uknowns" you want to find. DC, Evoke etc. work, does not come cheap.

    Thanks everyone for the quick replies. Just looking at some of your Deviant Art's I already enjoy what I see. Broken when you mention "not cheap" could you define that? I am a bit of an outsider, but am interested nonetheless.

    I believe "not cheap" usually means something along the lines of "expensive."

    Expensive can mean something completely different between the two of us, are we talking a couple hundred? Or a couple thousand? Ten thousand? Like I said, I'm an outsider here, I have no idea of the "going rate" of said artwork.

    I'm gonna assume you arn't particuarly wealthy, so in this instance expensive means too much for you.
