If you need to learn how to get into a routine then schooling with a professional is the best way to go. Lessons learned are strengthened, or sometimes, only fully understood after taking them on over and over again. People are generally kind and polite when talking to you because there are a lot of international schools there. I made a point to find an image where I could move the composition around. So no Facebook, no friends, no going out, no movies and so on. Lifestyle was easy for me. I get a lot of PMs asking various questions relating to studying concept design.

Overall I feel good about it but there is some distortion in the perspective that was due to a bit of tunnel vision. Also keep in mind it depends on your skill level. It is a good sales pitch that doesn’t alienate anybody’s wallet, but it also happens to be true. I have adapted a new approach, rather than start a sketch and follow it through one at a time, I now work on various drawings in layers. So I worked my ass of for 3 years, sold everything I owned and went to FZD to pursue my dream of becoming a concept artist.

Drawing Post: FZD Term 1 – Fundamentals

I was working as an interior designer at the time, so I had no new portfolio pieces connected to this industry. You need a disposition towards art and creativity. I was almost always behind in work at the beginning of term one.

A lot of people dropped out because they could not handle the pressure. We then quickly realized the financial reality, that shit ain’t happening. For me at that time YES. For this sheet I did very rough sketches of most of the different elements, giving each a good amount of time but still moving around more than usual. Very pleasant staff and they just asked general questions. But if you have no will to do the homework you will never learn. Determination, not giving up, keeping a clear goal in mind, working hard as fuck and always trying to do better work than the day before.


That is why I say a determined mind with a very clear goal is the key.

For example, same juice same place ranged from 1. Classes ran from 9AM-5PM on weekdays. Why even bother learning perspective when the tools can do it for you? So 4hrs to 30mins of sleep on any given night. Your mind sschool to be strong willed, determined, and good under pressure. Hmoework I started following him very closely, as he was the only artist I knew. Only a member of this blog may post a comment. I changed it to a widescreen format and moved around some of the background elements while giving the colors a slight nudge in a bolder direction.

You have to know that if you want to make it in the industry you will have to work long hours. With 14 weeks in a term, students get a pretty wide coverage of subject matters. Because by drawing something down, your brain stores the information in long term memory I still remember some of fad sketches I did back at ACCD 22 years ago!


I’ll start by explaining the sfhool classes we teach at FZD and why they are important.

I knew they would distract me and would not understand what I was doing. This is a very time consuming process to learn, but it is one of the most important tools in my opinion.

I honestly thought she would leave me because she was back in Lithuania! Since I don’t have too much homewor, these days to make new Design Cinema and Pod Casts, I’ll try to share some insights here.

All of the best concept art schools were in the US and they were far too expensive for me. It really shows how much can happen in 1 year with the right teaching and dedicated practice.
