So you can have a look at the book of kells online if you're into ancient Irish gospel art. theres some really nice designs in here, really nice patterns, really nice calligraphy, incredibly decorative, some good study as far as art history goes.

If you need it theres a Drawfag Resource Thread over at 8chan's /co/ that seems to be rife with stuff, take a look, take a gander, you'll probably find something you need.

Quick, opinions!
So I've been taking some art classes and now that I'm older and more open to actually fully utilizing the skills in being taught I'm considering applying to a pricy art school, should I just stick to junior college and build my portfolio/network from there or take that leap?

That is up to you dude, question is are you ready for that leap?

From experience I was on a 2 year are college course and had my placement for University to do animation. But because in my final year at college I spent too much time working on a 3D animation I spent very little time developing my drawing skills so I deferred my placement to Uni for one year and did a Art Foundation course which was also of pressure because of tight deadlines but it helped me develop my skills and confidence to experiment more with my drawings. So when I went to Uni I felt more ready and confidant.

But again that is down to you and how you feel about your skills plus need to look at which one would benefit you the most right now.

I will be facing a similar dilemma in about a years time, and for me it comes down to whether I can push myself hard enough on my own, and how my economic situation will be afterwards. Of course there are compelling arguments against going to art school, but being surrounded by people looking to push themselves and their peers can make a huge difference I think.

Orn and I both spent some time at community college before transferring to an art school, and I have to say the quality of education was quite similar. There was more emphasis on craft and basic skills at community college and more emphasis on ideas at MICA, but the difference very much didn't justify the price. If you get scholarships or have someone else paying for it I'd say it's maybe a decision worth making, but I'd not recommend going into debt over it.

I say don't bother with the leap, but then I never bothered with art school to begin with so whatever.

You're the one who asked for opinions. You took the risk of receiving opinions that wouldn't totally relate to your situation when you did that. I ain't taking none of the responsibility.

I don't know if what I'm doing is considered to be "art school" but I am currently studying on a university on a Fine Arts course. More specifically on Visual Communication where you get to learn other shit like advertising along with the classics like painting. I'd say you should weigh your options and what you would gain if you happen to decide to enroll, I mean just abandoning what you've worked for to go to art school is a bit of a major decision.

Or you could just take the leap and hope for the best outcome. Good luck!

I thought you meant I'd get to drink while watching you draw and I got really excited.

Can we plan that, actually? Drink n' draw in the tinychat room, Sunday evening or something?

Wow, that sucks dude. My condolences.

I read a lot of Sonic comics as a kid. Heck, I still got have all my issues bagged and boarded.
Thought I pick it up for ol' times sake. Turns out it's a preview for a cross over with a bunch of Sega and Capcom characters.
(It's like a fan fiction writer's dream... And damn do I want to read it.)

Aw! You had the Sonic and Udon Street Fighter ones.
I was trying to find it along with Rocket Raccoon and TMNT, but either it wasn't available or someone already took it.
Well, nice haul Cairos. xD

This fast? With this much warning? Why, if you burst onto the scenes with temperatures as heated as they are - there's going to be an.... imminent... commotion.

Thanks for the advice, experiences and opinions. I've decided to go through with going to a higher level of education past community, mostly because I'm going to just get at least a bachelors in fine arts since I plan on moving through the graphic design ranks into art direction.

I went to free comic day! I got The Tick, Bob's Burgers, and Spongebob. I haven't read em yet but I didn't even know Bobs Burgers had a comic so I'm stoked to read that one.
