Concept Art Study Group London, UK
I have been thinking about starting a Concept Art study group in London for Beginners/Intermediate and of cause the advance artists who would be interested.
There is a lot of clutter out there that makes it difficult for us beginners to understand best practices.
We could meet up often/weekly and just keep tabs, share insight, encourage and help each other to grow. I myself am a beginners but I take it very seriously as my time is limited. I work as a techy during the day and evenings I draw :)
I like being a 29yr old techy but I'm passionate about concept art and what to learn and grow. In a number of years if I end up in the entertainment design industry I will be happier but if I stay in IT I don't mind just once its creative. I love art and concept art seems to be the girl for me :)
My friends say am too serious these days :) If you really want to grow.. Lets do this!
America has all the well established schools and circles and in the UK the community is none existent to my knowledge as I have searched for groups to no real success. Online's good for portfolio's, tutorials but it takes the juices out of learning.
If this kicks off I will create a meetup event. Lets see how this goes.
This is where am at the moment and a brief overview of my goals. It should give you a very good indication of what I am trying to achieve and what we could achieve.
Give me shout on twitter or email and we can talk if you interested.
