I have been thinking about starting a Concept Art study group in London for Beginners/Intermediate and of cause the advance artists who would be interested.
There is a lot of clutter out there that makes it difficult for us beginners to understand best practices.
We could meet up often/weekly and just keep tabs, share insight, encourage and help each other to grow. I myself am a beginners but I take it very seriously as my time is limited. I work as a techy during the day and evenings I draw
I like being a 29yr old techy but I'm passionate about concept art and what to learn and grow. In a number of years if I end up in the entertainment design industry I will be happier but if I stay in IT I don't mind just once its creative. I love art and concept art seems to be the girl for me
My friends say am too serious these days If you really want to grow.. Lets do this!
America has all the well established schools and circles and in the UK the community is none existent to my knowledge as I have searched for groups to no real success. Online's good for portfolio's, tutorials but it takes the juices out of learning.
If this kicks off I will create a meetup event. Lets see how this goes.
This is where am at the moment and a brief overview of my goals. It should give you a very good indication of what I am trying to achieve and what we could achieve.
Give me shout on twitter or email and we can talk if you interested.
