Could you describe to me how useful art school was for you? I am seriously considering a future involving digital art and am wondering what a study on that meant to you...  I wouldn't like to bother you at all! But maybe you can tell me how.... Well... Useful it was to you! Sorry for boterig... :/

I'm all up for answering this question! Had to do it before and I think I can say some words about it so here goes :)

For me, I did Game Art, in a fairly broad sense. Too much to teach, not enough time. Language, Math, etc. also needing to be taught besides all broad things that belong to games, from Game Design to 2D game Art and 3D game art to more traditional ways of drawing like anatomy. Everything was slightly brushed on in my case but that differs per school of course, so that would be something to look in perhaps. I did find that broad knowledge useful, a lot of motivation already has to come from yourself. If you want something it's easier to go in depth in it and getting started through these lessons can be useful. Especially if the teachers can at least guide you in the right direction and are motivated to do so as well! (Which was in my case)

That's mainly the part of the raw knowledge that I think is the main kinda stereotype of school at times. Though there's a lot more to it I believe. Teachers are hopefully there with the mindsets I met, investing time to help you or guide you (not holding hands exactly :P)
Which can mean more to some than others. I didn't use it a lot but I caught a bit of it around me and like I mentioned a bit, some work and effort has to come from both sides which especially applies to higher educations.

Besides those classes and teachers I had 2 defined other aspects I found useful about schools (at least the one I went too)
Network and Social environment.

The networking is easy to answer. A school is a larger entity through which companies from within the industry can get involved with their (potential) new employees and the other way around, the students with potential employers. It's also just great outside of job opportunities to meet and know the folks in the industry you want to settle in. That knowledge of how different companies work and an inside look can be really valuable, so make the most out of it! Internship is great for that as well and depending on the school, it can be a lot easier to get in contact with companies, usually because they're already familiar with the school itself.
Great source of connections right there I would say. Another question you might ask when visiting schools.

Lastly I mentioned the Social Environment. Having direct contact with classmates looking into the same area as you can be a great way to get exposed to even more things you otherwise wouldn't have seen! I've had numerous occasions where classmates would show me to a guide, artist or program I wasn't aware of. Especially useful if they also know a thing or two about it. Or just share inspiration, have fun and make the ride not just enjoyable but useful for both sides. I definitely had great classmates, almost a big family (families also dividing a bit into groups here and there but can always mix randomly when needed and work). Things like pulling up to each worked out great as well, sometimes that friendly competition can do a lot, or just inspired by what others do, trying it out. Like, there's someone right there who can do that style you're interested in, so why not right?!

These points can even combine, if you end up with classmates who you end up working with as a group and contacting the companies like that. (in case you have some problems taking those steps yourself :) ) Out of that social environment you could get another question.
To sum up 3 questions for each main point I made I guess is: "What kind of lessons or focus is there exactly? 2D, 3D, Traditional lessons, how much time for each of it etc."; "How much activity or interaction is there with companies from the industry? Like school tasks supervised by companies, contacts into the industry and such"; "How much group interaction is there, how much guidance, hand holding, individual assignments?";

Comment got a bit longer than I expected, but to finish it up. In just raw knowledge from classes, for 4 years, perhaps not the most progress, a lot has to be done yourself (mainly the parts that you keep or use). But taking all the other aspects into account, I'd say it definitely had a good use to spend those years there. It helped shape how I understood things, looked at situations and more. Financially I also ended up in the plus haha, so that helped too I guess :P
So hopefully this gives a bit of an insight on how I experienced it and maybe also how to approach it to get the fullest out of the years when you do!

Today jwongy woke up and expected an average day. The simple minded being went around participating in his regular mindless activates such as drawing ponies like all normal people do. But today was no ordinary day, jwongy couldn't perceive the concept of what dark misfortune would scar this day into the depths of his memory banks. Jwongy started to panic as he realized there was no ponies today, his heart painfully throbbed as his meaning of existence was slipping from his conscience. "what is an existence without ponies" the now sobbing shadow of a person asked him self. Creating ponies was never the same as watching others create them he thought to him self.

 jwongy, was realizing the meaninglessness of his existence. What was a happy brony was now reduced to tears, the abandonment of assasinmonkeys stream and the MLP episode were too much for him to handle. The confused and delirious ghost of his past self scrambled around his surroundings for ponies, there were none.

jwongy will never forget this, the pain inside his mind will never go away. The person he once was, now just a scarred nothingness .

FELLOW FELLOW MLP FAN: I could use your counsel.

Recently I was able to fix and even improve on my old but trusty GRAPHIRE 3 Wacom digital pen. It was a nib issue:

streakspsyche.deviantart.com/j…



But I still find myself thinking about getting an Intuos Medium (not the Intuos Pro or Intuos Manga).

www.wacom.com/en/us/creative/i…

I have asked my irl professional artist friends about it, but their input leaves me with..."inconclusive." They both say that a bigger tablet is better for "painterly" artists. I really don't know if I am painterly, but I have a hunch that I am going towards that direction.

But one of them states a disclaimer: One of the bg-artists of creativemediaph.deviantart.com… uses a similar kind of tablet that I am using now. The GRAPHIRE 3 is most definitely small. And pressure sensitivity is hilariously sad at best. And yet this bg-artist can make very detailed backgrounds with it.

The GRAPHIRE 3 that I have now is ok. Years of working on it, so yeah, I'm pretty comfortable with it. But its sort of like, "Its all I know, so how do I know if a bigger, more advanced tablet would do me good" kind of situation.

We do not have the option of trying out the tablets in the shops here. So I am appealing to you guys to give me input.


THE MORE THE MERRIER!

Hey! Sorry for not sending a note like you asked, but mobile dA doesn't let people get notes I send. So I wanted to ask about your commission prices. Are they in points or real money?
