This is where you can find, or volunteer to be, an art mentor, trainer, or mutual study buddy to help you push your art to the next level!

Subject title: Looking for Study Buddy / Mentor / Apprentice! - Available.


My name is BA Sparks -

When it comes to art I am a bit of a jack of all trades. I sell myself as a 3d and Texture artist, but that's just to push work. My true passion is in the 2D, namely sketching and digital art. I am looking for someone else to work with to help elevate our game. (so to speak)

So personally I would love a mentor someone who could help me shore up the the issues lacking my drawings.

But I could honestly benefit just as much from just having someone else to talk shop with and build our work towards common goals.

And if I am really honest the only thing I love more than learning is teaching, because honestly sometimes the best way we learn is discover something knew while showing someone else. But I am also willing to help someone else out with the knowledge that I know.

So if you fit into one of the above categories (Mentor, Study Buddy, apprentice) let me know.

Check them out, if it looks like a good fit or you have a few points for me - You can get a hold of me through skype or email at -

What I am working on - Working towards
Faces and forms - I have a few new fantasy character races to design and I am going back playing with the basics as I create a few new races for a personal project
Digital Rending - Speed painting concepts as well as doing highly polished renderings.
Storyboarding - Working a scifi story panel.
3D Star-ships - Probably not relevant to this digital forum but you are welcome to ask if you have questions or want to learn.

Sent you a invite.

Still room for more.. I think we will cap out at 5 to keep it small and personal but enough ppl to give diversity.

2 more spots open.

I also hope I'm not too late. Is there any more room? I sent you a contact request on Skype, same name. I have limited data each month so I'd prefer text and image discussion rather than streaming video. not sure how much data that uses but it sounds like it would add up the bandwidth pretty quickly
