Ge kunt geen permanente residentie aanvragen als gewone burger?
Duurt een 8 tal jaar dacht ik, maar zal nog altijd de beste optie zijn, nee?
Hey, didn't realize there was an actual dedicated dutch thread. Nice!
For people living in or near Amsterdam and looking for a cheap place to do live drawing, Mezrab offers sessions on monday from 19:30 to 22:00 for 5 euros. I go whenever I can. There won't be one the 5th of may, but I expect it'll continue the week after again.
The problem is really more about: Why educate so many for an empty market?
On game conventions here it often seems like a scam to me. Everyone is teaching. Everyone offers "the way to your dream job" in this way or the other. And then I see the best people work in Albert Heijn.
Neither are there magical secrets you can keep for yourself. Everyone has just to find his right spot.
The Netherlands are not a lost case just yet. The indie industry has some nice companies developing. There is lots of funding (in my eyes nearly too much).
I've been at Mezrab two times now and it's a pretty good place to go figure drawing. Nice people, relaxed atmosphere. 8-10 or so people drawing the last two times.
It's 5€ a session, which is the cheapest place I've seen so far. 19.30 to 22.00 P.M. No easels but you can bring whatever you need. They start with some quick poses (1min, 2min) and gradually increase the time (up to 20min).
In my sketchbook I've uploaded the figures from last two weeks, if anyone is interested in seeing the type of poses. I'll be there again on Monday for sure!
went. totally worth it and we need more people to keep this going!
nice n central in Amsterdam; definitely gonna be there next week.
About decent drawing workshops/schools. The animation workshop in Denmark offers one. Glen Vilppu usually visits the school every year. http://www.animwork.dk/en/classical_drawing_courses.aspSeveral people I know did the course and really loved it! Apparently a student of Glen is running the course.
head up 4 ppl to come drawing tonight @ mezrab. I should be there ;P that alone should be incentive enough for y'all to travel the country!
