$30?!!? I'll admit, I've payed extra money for things just because they look nicer, but seriously, when it's 5 degrees below zero, at the crack of dawn and you're already 5 minutes late for work, all you care about is getting that ice off as quick as possible so you can get back in your warm car and...

Conferences and Shows worth attending??

I've been asked by my company to start looking into attending any trade shows, conferences, exhibitions, etc. that would demonstrate emerging trends in their respective fields. Obviously there are a ton, but I was just curious if anyone might suggest their favorite or those they felt they got the mo...

It's always good to draw, no matter how you go about doing it. Copying someone elses sketches (as an exercise obviously), for example, can teach you alot about how they created the drawing, how to properly shade, add reflections, etc. to make your stuff pop. But I've also been taught throughout my l...

Am I the only one who thinks this thing is just plain 'ol "fugly"? It honestly looks like a flimsy piece of junk that should only cost about $10 at Target and yet somehow people are ranting and raving about it! While the features may be nice, if it doesnt look good (especially for $500!!), why would...

To answer both questions, I would tell him to go online and search for positions at other companies with that particular job title as the description and look at the pre-requisites. This should give him a fair idea of where he stands with his experience level and education in mind. This will also he...

I would agree about getting rid of the sketches. For the most part, what you are showing is that you understand reflection, which are basic things. To me, that says beginner. Instead, show sketches that you've done for fun. Something that will help explain who you are, what you enjoy, and how you th...

To the original poster: Even though IDEO doesn't post on coroflot, you could also check their website. They list in the career or employment or something like that section who and what they are looking for to fill one of their offices. http://www.ideo.com/careers/ It appears that right now they have...

If you can afford it, I would highly recommend the cheaper cintiq for about $1500 (i think). Although it's definetly a jump in price from the intuos, it's very natural and you don't have to pay for a computer monitor, so you're effectively saving at least $200 there.

any old bic pen & a pilot razor point for the darker lines. Once in a while I'll go with an ultra-fine sharpie for even heavier lines.
For rendering??? Markers went out years ago, Wacom is the way to go with Photoshop as the software.
