Sooooooo I've just graduated, yeah? And I've been transitioning from a life as a full-time student to a full-time creative. As such, I've been struggling to come up with ways to find time to pursue my personal ambitions as an artist, and it's come to my attention that I need a renewed sense of community. If you've been following me at all, you know that I'm pretty silent around here, but I'm looking to change that.
I remember being part of a community back in the day and growing so rapidly, but these days I've been under the delusion that I've somehow "graduated" from communities, and that I need to learn on my own now. But obviously that's a terrible idea. And it's beginning to show, as I see people around me growing super fast and surpassing me in many respects, while I've kinda stagnated.
So I'm looking for ways to get plugged in. Groups, forums, whatever it may be. I crave being challenged by other artists, and not just challenging myself. When I challenge myself, things get out of hand.
Anybody able to suggest some groups around deviantART with an emphasis on worldbuilding? Or anything really. I just need a community, and I'm not getting it where I am now.
