    I think the UK thread is one of the most active right now.
    Just waiting on a next big meet. Did I read a while back there might be one in the Easter hols? Surely everyone would be able to make that.

    Howdy all,

    Soz, I've been incommunicado for a bit (I have a whole bunch of lame ass excuses like upgrading my PC, best-manning a wedding and having to do lots of written work for college ) but...

    I just thought I'd highlight a new magazine to you all, it's called "Imagine FX".

    Now some of you may already be getting this, those who aren't, it's worth checking out, not to find out what Photoshop brushes Ryan Church uses (personally I believe you could give him a Biro and some lined paper and he'd still be great, but that's a whole other rant ) but for the "Reader Fxpose" section (yes, that's how they spell it) which this month includes art from two of the people I've seen here on conceptart.org, and someone I've seen on dA.

    I'm seriously considering submitting some stuff with the intent of raising my profile, and it's probably worth you guys doing it too? Plus there's some lovely art and useful tips in it

    Hope this is useful?

    Hi Daz. Yeah I have a copy. Not overly impressed with the cover art. Its still a good image, but as you know, we're used to the best here. Duddlebugs in there giving a quick tutorial on orthos which I did find helpful.
    However, I'd say most of the content is for beginners. Nothing incredibly jumped out at me. But i'll continue buying, for the pretty good news section, and interviews, and artist profiles like Sparthy boy.
    I'd send something off, but I fear it wouldn't get in. And yeah, my low self belief pisses me off too.

    Hi peeps. Logging in here from Milano Fashion week (or rather the end of it). Today managed to jump onto the spot the celebreity/fashion designer.

    1/ D Furnish - Elton's husband on the same flight with us. I didnt get teh courage to take a cam photo at the last min. dammit.....while waiting for luggage to arrive...

    2/Checked into apartment in Duomo central. It was pissing down with rain. So went for a walk taking pictures of the Duomo, and Milano fashion street. Man the stores in Degaleria Duom has to ahve some of the best windo dressing and best PRADA, LV, GUCCI and Macdonald's poshes shops ever. New season stuff here at a fractionally cheaper price of many desirable goods (fortunately since I'm not female, i dont have such vices/foible. heh heheh). Walked over to the Scalla, and down the equivalent of Milan's bond street passing Dolce and Gabbana (which has 3 shop lots..and lo and behold, two guys just walked out of the closing store. Dolce and gabbana in non descipt grey clothing and fur lined hats and scarfs as they walked briskly into teh evening down the rainy street. Should have twigged that someone important was here as 4 mercedes cars pulled up earlier on the street..then flashed past to park on the pposing small aley.)

    Again..no guts to take a cam photo as they came out even though i was taking shots of their fantastic shop front......sigh

    4/ Dinner was fantastico! Had the best Rissoto and Sliced swordfish at decent prices. here is hopign tommorow is less rainy. Pictures in a bit once i phtoshop and prep them for le web!

    peace out!

    Fran: I know what you mean. They don't teach you anything remotely useful in school

    Sean: I'm guessing the next 'big' meet will be around April - during the Easter hols. I think Chee said something about meeting up every other weekend or something. Have a read through.

    Damn, I need to come to the Uk thread everyday.. seems to be a lot going on.

    Kim, thats really cool.. Its got a great ethereal atmosphere and the cloud is amazing! Did you have the reference with you when you painted it?

    I'm definately up for another meet soon...I'll be there at the start of the day too...

    Everyone seems to be using 3.0 quite a bit now, but its seriously slow for me.. Its not been 'officially' launched yet, has it?

    Well done, son.

    And yeah, you're right. I think the level of the average on this site is probably close to the level the pros were at when it was started. sigh.

    *edit: and yeah, 3.0 ROCKS. Me and cartoonfox got totally addicted to it on the weekend hehe. But yeah, they're upgrading the servers apparently and it's not intended for primetime yet. Hopefully they do some work to reduce the redundancy between it and 3.0, though. Multiple friends/buddies things etc and maybe incorporate the sketchbooks into it.

    Hey y'all

    Im running several classes in drawing, painting and digital art but thought its time to expand. What do you reckon would be a good hourly rate to offer tutors or guest lecturer's. Im pretty much running the show on my own at the mo, life drawing, drawing, painting(oil, watercolour, acrylic), digital art. What would you guys get out of bed for of a morning to teach for 3 hours? Im reckoning on £20 per hour? Thoughts? and who'd be interested?

    Nice one sketchling, were in wiltshire. Train links from london are great. In the process of drafting a timetable and cirriculum. Taking a nod from watts. There are a number of classes in the area but nothing of any note, weve steadily built a reputation as a great place to come and learn to paint and draw or develop and improve. Mostly we attract professionals in the area but would like to open that up to a broader audience. We'd have to chat on what you feel would make a viable 3 hour a day, 12 week course. If we can get it booked with 10 people or more, were on. Also if saturdays are all you can do, we're gonna be running several all day saturday workshops throughout the year.

    We could negotiate on the rate. Depends on the format of the class. Could extend it to close to 30 pounds per hour for weekdays. Less for weekends im afraid(20)

    Hey, be great to have you guys along. Will be a full day, you can paint or draw. Quick poses in the morning for a couple of hours followed by a four hour life setup, clothed or nude. Discount for all ca folks. Plus lunch will hopefully be included in the final price. All still to be worked through.

    Yeah... lotta the henrik magic in there. its the first step which roughs up the canvas to vary the colours in the image for the rest of the time you paint... great tip that.

    after the 4th... thats just the same but on a smaller scale. tightening up.

    And yeah... all the background in that landrover ad were matte paintings.... dunno if the tetleys advert is on tv yet, but i did loads of work for that too. Funny ad.

    That would be about right its 17.50 an hr for an ESOL Teacher (thats college rates)

    Be careful Hybridstar with going solo I tried it last year with teaching English to foreign students, they're all for it untill it comes to them parting with money.

    I spent three months viewing property, sourcing tables,chairs etc and it all went to pot because they expected it for free.

    Have you thought about teaching art in a Prison? My Wife teaches in one and she says the Art depatment are snowed under with students.
