    thanks you so much

    I'm thinking of attending myself. I made a thread in this sub-forum a while ago - a "Frederick Rambaud" did the short certificate course, but I haven't had the chance to converse with the full time diploma students yet.

    I've sent in my portfolio, and am currently getting my documents in order.

    I had the chance to talk to Ms. Junying on then phone, and she said that students regularly go to bed at around 2:00AM - so when the webpage says the course is intense - it really is.

    Anyway, if there are any full time FZDSchool students out there, I'd like to hear what you have to say/comment on.
    "Never regret thy fall from grace, O' spirit of Icarian flight, for the greatest tragedy of them all to face, is to never feel the burning bright"
    Believe my lies, for I tell the truth about them. Or would you rather me lie about telling the truth?

    Talking

    Yo, I was at the show. i would say a good 90% was pretty sick. A lot of the guys i had talked to were not very good concept designers or artist Prior to Attending, Definitely lacking in The fundamentals. These online portfolios don't do any justice, 95% of the student had a portfolios packed with industry quality work.Fair amount of senior concept artist were in the house and industry scouts were present. Feng seems humble. A few days later I even got the chance to check out a polytechs university portfolio show.. And the 3 year programs portfolios had nothing on the fzd portfolio show..I felt sorry.. Not trying to come off as a fan boy, i'm just relaying what i seen to who ever wants to know.
    They told me get ready to draw all day every day until that shit is wired!.When they say 1 year intensive .. It's a full time gig..expect to get little sleep. Class starts at 10am 2morrow BallaS! IS Any From CA.org in this country now?.. fucking ridiculously amazing country eh!.. (CHICKEN RICE AND TIGER BEER! 5$).. hit me up and lets photo ref Singapore on the little days we get off. Pumped to shit to do this. I guess i gotta do a sketch dump soon.. first post in like 2 years! i will do my best to relay the 1st semester , but don't wait for it.

    Well Worth the money

    Its fun and intense work in the school. In just two months, the stuff they teach, you can figure out to draw anything.

    Its very advantageous for those who have drawn for a long time and exposed to concept art prior to attending the school. But any newbie in drawing, with the right attitude and work can evolve quickly.

    The way they teach is amazing. Stuff actually make sense because they use science to explain.

    Again, its too intense. Just one subjects homework alone fills an entire week to draw. Imagine if you have 5 different subjects that give homeworks. I need to plan my free time so far ahead because of the workload. I sleep at around 6am and go to school before 10am. But its still the most fun I've had.

    Its very recommended for those who seriously want to learn to design. But if your like " I want to draw it this way because I feel it looks cool and I don't want to go all through those thumbnail and research processes.". you might have to adjust because you don't get to pick the topics and restrictions.

    I was lucky enough to be one of the internaionals that got in... I don't know when they will be open for another batch.

    Go to gallery then student showcase. http://www.fzdschool.com/gallery_student.htm

    How you develop in the school really depends on the students personal effort, like with all things. Time management and commitment is crucial. Some are always better than others.

    I thought my architecture background would make Perspective class a breeze but they really hammer it to you once you get there. For the Concept Design subjects usually those who have been exposed to movies, drawing and concept art before comes up with cool looking believable stuff than those who is just being exposed to the industry.
