Conceptart.org – conceptart is not directly a 3D forum, but should be mentioned here? This is one of the leading internet forums for designers interested in character, creature and environmental design. It`s worth taking a look at conceptart.org if users want to develop their digital painting skills in 3D in parallel to their know-how.
DeviantArt – DA is a large community for artists of all kinds. Hundreds of thousands of artworks are uploaded to DeviantArt every day, so it`s relatively difficult to attract attention here if you don`t actively promote yourself and your network. However, the 3D part of the site gets fewer uploads than many other areas, so chances are good that many users will be able to see their work.
Area – Area is the official community site of autodesk. Membership in this forum makes sense if users use the software and have a technical question.
More communities – Of course there are many more useful forums. Below you will find a small list:
- 3D4All (Portuguese)
- Gnomon Workshop Forums
- Digital Tutors Forum
