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?
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 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.
