Feedback is the breakfast of the champions.  Sign Up Now and join the community of artists always looking to improve. 
Sessions are geared for the below disciplines:
1. Layout and Prop Design: Layouts are drawn from storyboards which define the action and perspective in the scene. Because storyboard artists draw backgrounds in a rough, simplified style, background layout artists take them to the next level by defining the detail and perspective. Layout drawings are then given to the background painters to color and complete the visual style.
2. Background Painting and Art Direction: Art directors develop design concepts and review material that will appear in digital media, newspapers, advertisements, books, magazines, and more. They control the overall visual direction of a project in industries from advertising and public relations to web design. Art direction requires years of experience, advanced technical skills, and advanced knowledge in the areas of art and management. As such, art director is considered a high level position that offers many financial rewards. Professionals in this specialized field are among the highest paid artists in the art and design world.
3. Viz Dev and Concept Design: About Visual Development Artists and Concept Designers design and develop the look and feel of feature films, animations, videos, and other types of productions. In the animation industry, visual development artists imagine and propose ideas for what the animated world should look like based on the story, characters, and action. Visual development artists also work with character emotions to help assist with the storytelling aspect of the animated production.
4. Story Sketch: Many Storyboard Artists have been Animators or they may still alternate between the two roles. Others come from the layout department. You could also follow a route to this role having graduated from an art course, such as graphics or illustration, having developed an interest in film technique and storytelling.
5. Character Design: A Character Designer is an artist that creates new, original characters (sometimes shortened to “OCs”) for a purpose. It can be a character based on a definition from a story or script as would be the process in Feature Films, TV Series, Video Games, Children’s books, Web animation, Comic books, Comic strips, or even Licensing or Toy Design.
6. Animation: Animators produce images that appear to come to life on screen. Their work is found in feature films, commercials, pop videos, computer games, websites and other media. They may work with drawings, specialist software or models and puppets, capturing separate images of each stage of a movement. When the images are viewed at speed the character appears to move.
7. Production Management: Production management is involved with the planning, coordination of the projects.
