what if we want feed back on a pix person but don't know where to post it... like im coloring on gimp for the first time, and i really need the experts to show me where i am going wrong so i can improve my artwork..but i don't know where really to post it so i can get that much needed feed back.. so really is the academy only in session when there's a event going on or is it a all purpose learner place?
You could always post it in the Resource WIP topic in the General Resource forum. If there isn't a section for that here then you'll find the feedback there, sometimes people would do edits or point you in the right direction.
Turning a specific vibe into reality is incredibly difficult. For instance, this song is one of the ones I listen to when working on my post apocalyptic project, and getting it's "feeling" into the game has been a real challenge.
I don't just wanna regurgitate the numbers I see, I wanna actually understand the calculations I'm making so I'm probably gonna make a post later with some calculations and what I THINK they mean to get some advice and corrections.
Edit: All (Most) of these will be tested in game prior. I just wanna make sure I understand what's going on under the hood if you will.
