Hi watchers! Is this thing on?

Once again I haven't spent much time updating or hanging on dA, but I'd like to let you all know of a brilliant new monthly challenge that I and a friend started recently, called The Crimson Crucible.

We are really happy to have Alex Negrea come and be a guest judge and give critiques to the challenge winner and standouts! It could be you getting a personal crit from Alex.
For Crimson Crucible 1, you will have to design or redesign a Game of Thrones character or environment from one of the main houses of Westeros, and do an illustration of it.

If you guys have heard of the Bloodsports challenges that Dave Rapoza and Dan Warren held for a while on the daggers forum, this is the re-imagining of those days on the Crimson Daggers forum. If you haven't heard of it man you missed out...but you can get involved in something that works to those same ideals!

I don't want to write too much more here, but please go to the blog to get all the info.…

You can watch the intro stream for challenge 1 here:

Apologies the intro sound is very low, our discussion is loud enough though.

The focus of the challenge is really about hardcore self-development through the course of the challenge, and the community is incredibly supportive.
I hope to see you there!

Hello from Wellington! Wow, your work is really impressive. I read your post "Art school vs. self-teaching" and I wanted to say it is so very helpful. I'm in my second year of self-directed learning and it sure is hard but highly rewarding. I need to check out those workshops run by White Cloud. All the best :)

Enrolling for June, go do it! :)

Hello fellow Wellingtonian! Thank you so much, I hope it is useful. Self teaching is definitely the hardest way to do it, but keep persevering, listen to your own gut and just keep having fun, and I have no doubt you will succeed. Paul doesn't run many workshops anymore unfortunately, but definitely keep an eye out for them, they are invaluable. 
Feel free to hit me up if you have any questions. I'm always happy to help if I can.

I'm sorry, I haven't logged in for some time so I didn't realise you had left me a reply. Thats such a pity about Paul, but I will definitely look out for other workshops. I'm still carrying on with my self-learning, thank you for the encouragement to persevere. It can be hard sometimes without a mentor or tutor to challenge me so I have to remember to set some clear goals. I've been working on my understanding of human anatomy this year. However, there are so many distractions and other topics I want to explore like composition and lighting etc. Its very hard to stay focused lol. I hope you're doing well at Yoobee, how is it studying there?
