    In two weeks - this week = last week of classes for me, next week = finals - so in 2 weeks I'm gonna get pics of my set ups posted. Yes, I have my bedroom and I have a part of the basement to work with. We just gotta fix that "flooding during heavy rain" thing....

    I gotta ask - if a lot of us here were millionaires, how different would your set up be?

    Well, my 'studio' isn't here on CA but it's basically a large desk with two computers (one MAC and one Vista, both 24" flat-screen and the pc also has a 17" flat attached) on it and space for my drawing board.

    Would things be different if I was a millionair?
    Well, what I would like is more light in that part of my house.
    But since I have a late 19th century house that's not an option.
    It's just long and narrow build.
    And buying a new house just for more light is a bit overdone

    What I'm working on at the moment is rearranging my living room so I have more free space in the front part of the house. That's the part where I sit most of the time when drawing and where I have most direct ligth.

    I'm not planning to work on huge canvas so I don't need a lot of space.
    I already have sufficient space to put an easel up. Upstairs on the other side of the house I have a spare room I don't use at the moment.
    So I would not have to change a lot or invest much.
    And more/larger rooms means more cleaning/dusting...

    Thing is, when you have sufficient money (and that doesn't have to be a lot) you'll find out it's not really adding anymore. You don't need to replace your computer six months, don't need the most expensive paints/brushes/canvas on the market. You need quality but quality and price are not always related.
    An example of this. I can get myself the new Intuos 4 right now. But my Intuos 3 is doing fine. I see no reason to replace except when I want a larger surface. The only things I would invest in are books. Both reference and reading.

    One thing to remember here is that art isn't my source of income. And not my job.
    When your income depend on your tools you should get the best you can get.
    Don't push it, you need to eat. But bad equipment will make that you don't spend as much time as you should on your art. And bad equipment could hurt you, I would never use my current computer chair if I had to sit on it for 8 hours/day. But most good equipment is an investment. One time a lot of money and then nothing for ages.

    In general I'd say that you don't need a lot of money to have a decent studio. Though 'not a lot' is from my point of view and I have no doubt that my monthly amount of 'spare' money is more than the income many students earn from their part-time job.

    What you do need is space. And I can see that being a problem for many people. I'm lucky with that. When you become a millionair I'd invest in that. Space with good lighting.

    Wow, good answer man! I wasn't expecting an in depth reply, but I appreciate it. I wouldn't change my workspaces much either - I'd just get more shelves, and a new flourescent light bulb for my basement area. I've got two pics of the "studio" section of my room.

    P.S. I'm horrible with the attachment manager..

    Me and three friends have started a small screen printing studio as our final assignment at college. We are just starting out with the technique, but we've invested quite a bit, good tools make for easier, better work.

    Our studio is located in the school, fifth floor overlooking the river, beautiful... It's large, well lit and best of all, free. We also have a dark-room, exposure room and storage for screens, ink, solvents etc.

    Panorama, sorry for the large image

    Here's my little corner of the basement. I'm waiting for a nice day out so I can re-seal my palette. I had to sand some dry oil paint off, and it screwed with the polyurethane, so I have to touch it up first.

    As of yet, I don't have a studio, but my digging through the net has found a few you might be interested in. The first is Caillebotte's studio, painted by himself. The second is the studio of Watteau, as painted by Jean Carolus. Expect more as I find them.

    Here are a couple more studios. One is a painting by Louis-Robert Carrier-Belle, of an unnamed sculptor at work. The next is a self portrait of John Ramsey Conner, in his studio.

    Not got much of a studio, just a desk and my bedroom.

    Only got a laptop last week lol, so it's pretty empty looking at the moment.

    May post pics tomorrow.

    After an extremely long time, I now have a proper place to work! It's at the end of the garden, so it's away from the rest of the house and is very peaceful It could be called a studio I guess. Definately an improvement from my bedroom floor! Also, it's usually a lot messier than in the pictures as well! I'm trying to go in there more often, but I still spend more time doing art in my room. One reason is because my computer is in my room, another is because of my phobia of spiders sometimes stops me from walking up the garden (after a very scary experience for me previously) to get to it.
    I'm glad it is like a "blank canvas" as I intend to redecorate it in the future. Will be exciting!

    This seemed like a nice studio until I noticed drops of blood on my arm. Damn flies were killing me and i had to flee.

    CraigD, the first thought in my mind, before checking name or location, was "somewhere between the Rockies and the Pacific Ocean". Fill us in on the details!
