Nowadays there are a lot of stuff created to educate and help you grow as an artist. Live workshops, DVDs, books, making of's, tutorials, youtube videos, online streams, gumroad, patreon... the list goes on and on. Comparing to the late 90's or even mid 00's there is a huge boost of training material and events available.

I'm addressing this question both to inexperienced and seasoned artists...

Does it help you?

Do you learn and grow or feel overwhelmed and stuck instead?
A bit of my Square work was shown in Dengeki & Weekly Famitsu magazines along with Mevius Final Fantasy. Can you spot it? :D

If you're going thru some sort of artistic meltdown, downtime or need to recharge your creativity I'd recommed you to check out Stephen Silver' channel. In his relatively short (5-10 min) videos Stephen covers many topics to encourage and inspire both young artists and seasoned pros. Pick the topic you like and listen. It won't magically resolve your problems but it would provide either kick in the butt you need or just different POV you missed out.

And another piece which is rather hilarious put some insights on George Martin's writing process:

This was the very first scene I wrote in my script way back in 2011... a young noble lady flowing in zero g pool surrounded by globules of water.

It takes me a while (and some R&D) to redo the water & background for a more convincing look. Perfectionism could be scary sometimes. :)

Harlequins vs Emp Children
This probably the first and the last time I post something like this...

Production time: 4 months
6K image resolution
350-400+ layers of chaos, gun fire, explostions, smoke, dust etc.

The heaviest image I did so far both in terms of scope and endurance. Think of Vietnam war or Afghanistan.

Most of Warhammer art are dark and grim so you could 'cheat' a lot. But here my AD asked for daylight scenery...
The Harlequins were kept in secret so I worked from miniatures photos trying to capture their essence.
