    Seattle: Illustration and Digital Painting Classes?

    Anyone have the low-down on Seattle courses that could benefit a person in the field of Concept Art? Thanks!

    Futurepoly and Gage! Futurepoly for digital stuff, Gage for more fine art stuff.

    I'm actually taking classes at Futurepoly right now (and have been doing life drawing/traditional stuff at Gage for the past few years). They're both about as good as it gets in the NW.

    I'm moving to Seattle in 6 months and those are the exact two schools I've been looking at for getting my art-ass in gear.

    I'm thinking about the Gage atelier, which is full time for 35 weeks, to build up my foundational skills. Would it be a good idea to simultaneously take digital classes at Futurepoly? Or should I hold off and get my general foundations hammered away at Gage before delving into digital?

    Thanks for the reply.

    I've also taken a course at Futurepoly; I took a class from James Kei, very chill and educated guy. It was a good class and I learned quite a bit, even though most everything in the class was way beyond my skill level.

    Unfortunately, I think I did a really shitty job of phrasing my original-post's question: I was more-so looking for sketch groups, community classes, things that people put together themselves...critique groups and things of that sort.

    There used to be a section on this site for people to hook up to draw together in their areas... ah, it's a Lounge sub-forum. Here's a direct link to the Seattle Sketchgroup, which is actually stickied

    It looks like it's a bit in disarray - people are trying to get it moving again. You could certainly give them a boost.
