Subject title: Online art schools

Hi guys!
I'm interested in online art schooling as a revenue for further studies after graduation. As money will be tight post graduation, I'm thinking it'll be good to keep the learning going while saving where I can. I'm looking into a platform which offers classes that trains you deeply in a specific field. Specifically under character design, illustration and a bit of 3D.

Here's an example of the level I'm currently sitting at: https://inkytophat.deviantart.com/gallery/

I've looked into:
Schoolism
Skill share
Pluralsight
Art school by cube brush
wattsatelier for fundamentals and painting
CGMA 2D acadamy
Learned square
Ctrl paint

Have you taken any online art classes that you can vouch for? Should I continue down the path of self teaching and only consider online school at a later level? What are your general opinions of online art schooling? What are some mindset misconception/preparation I should absolve before considering enrolling? Are there other better sources?

I liked to hear your general opinions of the matter and hopefully it'll help me make better decisions in the future. Thanks in advance for taking your time to respond/read!

Hey Inkey, I like your stuff, I think your pieces are appealing.

These are some art schools that I know, I can not really talk about those schools, but I hope you find useful things for what you want to achieve, there are too many options for online education now, so think about what you specifically want since it is an investment of time and money, I think the courses as resources that can help you in your development as an artist, but the main thing is always your work as self-taught developing your own methods and processes.
It is important to put a lot of effort into extrapolating the information you receive from other artists in your own work.

Thank you for your advice!
After thinking over it a little, I might hold off the idea of enrolling into an E class until I find a particular course that excites me on a personal level. There's plenty of free resource and art books out there to busy myself. Not to mention gumroad tutorials! I'll continue building up my foundations and see how it goes. :)

Hello Inkey,

even if you already made up your mind: I actually did two Schoolism classes and i think it was really worth it.
I did Nathans class on color and light and Jasons Course about Carricature...the later beeing really intense as
Jason was really expecting supreme work...If you got any further questions, go ahead. I will probably do
some more courses in the future. I also did some patreons with critique sessions like foundation (no longer with critique)
Sinix and at the moment im with Marco Bucci, but we haven't had a session yet, so really exited.

so all the best for your art career! Happy painting!
