Fireside chat: Learning concept art and getting into the industry

We were down in Santa Monica a couple of months ago and hung out with some great artist friends: Shaddy Safadi (One Pixel Brush) and the guys from the new online art education outfit Learn Squared: Maciej Kuciara, Ash Thorp, Anthony Jones and Andrew Hawryluk. We wanted to chat about the state of learning in the art industry, what’s the best way to learn and break into the entertainment art industry.
