Concept art for movies (Professional Tier)
If you are an accomplished artist, it's been years since you last had honest feedback. You know what your strengths are. But you have little clue about your weaknesses. You get thousands of likes, tons of positive comments, but for some reason, you didn't get invited to your dream project. Or you did — but didn't get briefed on a key character. Or you did — but they (bastards!) didn't choose your design. No matter the level and the years of experience, we can all learn something useful from each other. Honest, unbiased, constructive feedback and a chance to learn from a small group of professional artists will help you find the missing piece of the puzzle.
