Wait a second...
Also: look up light source tutorials from masters - NOT from deviantart!
Devientart has hundreds upon thousands of members with masters in art. But regardless of whether or not you have a masters, doesn't prove whether or not you're good at it. To tell someone not to go to DA for tutorials is wrong. Have you even been on DA? I assume you have, but you certainly need to reevaluate the way you look at DA and its members. Idk, if I was an artist with a masters degree who went on DA, and if I saw that message, I would be pretty put off. Personally, I don't think that was the best advice to give.
The tutorials you see at DA are very useful, regardless of what degree the artist had or which uni they attended.
but the university i attend that works with dreamworks, pixar, blue sky, nickolodeon, hallmark, EA games, blizzard entertainment, and disney tends to be right most of the time.
Most of the time, not all the time. So therefore I wouldn't tell someone not to look at DA instead of a master.
But remember, this isn't personal, I'm just letting you know that despite what you said, DA is full of artists who can provide useful information to other artists. It really doesn't matter who went where and what they learned at which uni.
But overall, I think we're moving beyond the primary subject. Let's stick to it please. <3
: you know... I adore your art, and I hope you continue to work for this industry. We can really use such a talented and ambitious artist such as yourself.
I'm not so great at criticism unfortunately, so I hope that suffices.
