Let's say I'd love to push my skills further, does anyone have a clue on how to "acquire" a personal mentor? Or create a small group of artists who can mentor each other out..? Does anyone have any tips and tools to share, that helped them take their skills to the next steps?
At the moment I read ArtOrder and listen to Ninja Mountain podcast a lot, but I wouldn't know where to post my art to get good feedback, and I'd love to have buddies with whom I could do some hardcore art talk. And get crits.
This is somewhat vague, but any thoughts and opinions are welcome.
