    Would you happen to have any recommendations as to where I could stay? I'm in Hong Kong currently.



    . The only problem I can forsee is that I am a very heavy sleeper - and this is compounded by my medication for schizophrenia which is really sleep inducing. Another problem is waking up - I've had my mom tell me my alarm clock woke her up, and not me, even though she was down the freaking corridor.

    No not really get an agent off cl or when you come here.

    Don't itch to get out here .. when school starts you have no life .. period.

    as for your problem .. yeah you gotta get over it .. i have 3 alarms and when it gets past 6 i just stay up ..
    my sleep pattern is completely fucked .. i take naps to cope .. 10 - 1 .. 3- 6 shit like that .. term 2 is brutal for no sleep.

    Heh, I've got no life outside of my art, computers, and games (Which I definitely WON'T be bringing with me to Singapore, don't want the apple of temptation).

    I never considered multiple alarms before - don't know why, but it's so simple! Thanks phats, will definitely get multiple alarms clocks and systems. I just wish there was some kind of wrist watch which would administer electric shocks on you, just enough to get you awake, and not enough to electrocute or burn you, heh.

    But in anycase, I'm acclimatizing myself to the school, I sleep no earlier than 2am every day now, and sometimes I stay up altogether.

    Anyway, thanks for sharing your experience with us phats I can't wait to go.

    @ Rabbi - Congrats on getting accepted. I guess by our posts you may have an idea on the kind of physical and mental stress toll school puts on a student. So really take care of everything. Have someone to call in case of emergencies (which we internationals really don't have) Its always the best to live near the school and advantageous, so do look up places. International students pay higher tuition, so don't get too sick that you can't do schoolwork (I have seen students who got sick and unable to work and thy just sit in class all the time and never able to do the homeworks.)

    Also, up to you to let the school know regarding health issues just to be sure.

    will post my work once gradshow nears, still doing new pieces and upgrading older ones.

    Very true. But perhaps what the students are going for is to learn his way of doing art first, so they have a base from which they can change to their own styles.

    Saying that though, learning his way first will really limit their own style and abilities in the long run, because it'll be hard to change their way of thinking they learned from him.

    They need to give some international scholarships . What would be awesome if they also extended it to a two year program, one year seems a bit fast.

    that might be one of its main selling point. At least for me it is, cause after this course I would have continue my education with a class or 2 a year while keeping to the work ethic of drawing everyday. Its more a starting point I'd guess.

    I attended one of the 6 week part time course. To be honest it was a little too expensive for mostly demos. He has little time to crit on our work individually cos he does that during the class itself. 3 hrs every week is not sufficient ! I believe he has excellent demos ( some are the ones he did in class ) on his youtube site. They're pretty similar to what he teaches in the class.

    definitely not going to happen. school environment provides discipline.

    if i ask you to do the home work over a email and send it back to me by a day your probably not going to do it ..
    then i crit your work over email and send it back .. come on man .. that just sounds brutal

    realistically what you guys say is expensive is affordable . you just probably didn't do the math yet.. for me to study in my own country at a very respected art university was more money then 1 year here.
    i'm not saying you need to attend this school .. but studying under pros will cost you. any where you go TAD.FZD,Art center.. whatevs..keep it in mind that its more expensive to be uneducated . i even took night time and part time classes in canada just to be sure of my decision to study abroad ..

But yeah there is nothing like going to school in person. Thanks again Phatz
    6 week is not like the 1 year.. it is what it is .. just 6 weeks ..

    a lot of the peeps taking those classes are already working in the field in Singapore..

    so i would assume your already expected to know your fundamentals.

    the 1 year grinds that into most students

    Truth word by word phats, thank you so much for your insight. This is specially remarkable "its more expensive to be uneducated"

    I can't believe that there's people doing that. Feng being plagiarized, outrageous....he gives us a hand with the "design cinema", he tells us what's behind the cool characters, creatures, environments, spaceships, and what not, and still there's people that dare to do such thing....outrageous. They haven't "walked" enough to value what he's doing, that's all I can think of....

    Hey Mr.Phats and wilson, Moe here. Cant wait to see the sick stuff you guys got up on the grad show in june. Will be looking forward, dont dissapoint yeah. haha.

    For those wondering bout students that went in without formal training, I was one of them. Now by no means was I the best student, but considering I went in not knowing a single thing, I didnt know perspective, I didnt know how to draw or paint, and neither did I know know bout design. And being from malaysia we never had any kind of art training in sec school.

    I learnt and grew a lot at FZD in the span of just 1 year. And It wasnt easy, at the same time I was living accross the border, I had to travel bout 2 hours to get there and 2 hours to get home. Sleeping bout 2 - 3 hours a day, I lost bout 6-7 hours a day. But I used every single waking moment training and trying. And trust me, Feng wasnt kind.

    He will tell you like it is. Be prepared to get critiqued into the ground. And from what I hear it's way harder and harsher now. But the returns you get, if you work hard enough, will be worth it. Ask any of those guys there. I honestly wish I could have stayed another year.

    To you guys that got in congrats, you'll be in for a treat. Work hard, and the returns from FZD will be epic.

    Haha Feng isn't kind huh? I heard he was humble at least. Sounds good to me, with the crits and all.

    Haha, he is kind. Mainly in the first term he is very nice cause were still learning, But by the time you get to term 2 and 3 he's a lot more strict. But just dont take it personally, outside of class he is a nice guy. EVen in class he does crack his jokes. Haha.

    But if the work is bad he's not gonna sugar coat it. Just have to learn to deal with the comments and move on. At the end of the day it's for our own good. Haha.

    Thanks for your input about your experience at FZD moezy, makes me all the more excited!

    In fact, I'll leave for Singapore within the next 1 to 1 1/2 weeks - have to be there by the 6th of June to sign some documents. Although the school has been a bit slow in regards to visas and notifying us when to pay the fees. But Elvira, Mihwa, and Sing Yee have assured me and my mom that there are no problems with my application status currently.

    It's absolutely crazy with your travel arrangements moezy, but I guess people have traveled farther within their own countries, for longer periods, to get between home and work, work and home. But wow...can't wrap my head around traveling to another country every day, and back, just to attend the school. Granted, there's only a channel of water that separates Singapore and Malaysia...but...woah.

    Anyway, I also asked the school which version of painter they will be using for my intake (June), and they said it would be the latest one, version 12.

    I's great to know that Feng and the other teachers won't sugar coat the critiques. I don't see that as a negative at all, although the animu artists at dA would probably think so.

    Speaking of which, it's 3:50am when I'm writing this post. I've been acclimatizing myself to the school's hectic sleep schedule. Staying up for me isn't the problem - waking up is. But phats has suggested I get multiple alarm clocks, which I probably will.

    Also, would you guys happen to have any recommendations as to places to rent a room for a year, that is close to the school? Elvira suggested Sophia Lodge, which I looked at on Google Earth, and it was quite close to the school. I'll be looking through the SG M.O.E. list of hostels, and see which ones are close to FZD. But I'd like to know where you guys are staying.

    Good luck at the grad show, and hope you guys get lots of contacts!

    Hey Rabbi were you there in the gradshow? Would've been cool to talk with you

    anyway.. posted my portfolio at the critiques section, that was some tough school, I still need a lot of improvement but I just want to share. As this thread has been going on for a year, I think.

    Nah, wasn't at the grad show unfortunately, due to student visa application complications from the beginning of June. I've got the visa approved now (Just yesterday in fact), so I'm coming to Singapore within 2 days to get the health checkup, and formalities done.

    Would've loved to have been at the grad show, but couldn't make it

    Congrats on everyone who graduated! I heard from Sing Yee that it was a blast.

    "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?

    Excuse me

    Can you guys shed a little light on what the course materials are? The course materials fee on the site seems to be quite high.
