ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Online Art Schools -

CGSo­ci­ety is a so­cial art hub fea­tur­ing in­dus­try news, fea­tures, fo­rums and chal­lenges, as well as a strong body of work­shops deal­ing with the more tech­ni­cal side of artis­tic train­ing. Th­ese CGWork­shops cover sub­jects such as ad­vanced matte paint­ing, video game an­i­ma­tion, rig­ging tech­niques and cloth sim­u­la­tion, taught by a col­lec­tion of film and game in­dus­try names such as lead char­ac­ter tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor Wade Ryer, Bliz­zard’s David Luong and se­nior Houdini artist Niels Prayer.

Cour­ses last be­tween four and eight weeks, and prices range from $349 to $699 (£247 to £494). They op­er­ate along the same lines as other schools: each week stu­dents are pre­sented with a pre-recorded les­son with home­work and a so­cial space to share work and cri­tique. There’s scope for ex­po­sure on sev­eral cour­ses with some teach­ers shar­ing their stu­dent’s work on­line, and stu­dent work is of­ten fea­tured on the main page of the web­site.
