I've been running a free online study group called the Crimson Daggers everyday @9am EST for just over a month now. I'm looking to hopefully get some more exposure for it so I can possibly recruit more members to help them get closer to their goals!
The main thing is that we meet everyday and do a steady rotation of Painting from photo(landscape,portrait,nudes,clothed figures, etc), Master copies, and Painting from life. After we've met on the stream for an hour we post the work. I've had a pretty nice turnout since the start and now am bringing in more and more as time goes on.
I don't try to act like I know everything or whatever but its more about being able to have a tight community of artists all striving to reach a similar goal. The point of it is to work at everything we're having trouble with and to keep moving forward. You'll see me fail and you'll probably fail yourself from time to time but thats the point. We gotta keep pushing for everything we want out of ourselves.
Anyways, I was hoping to garner some support from CgHub to help possibly get the word out about it. I feel like its a great opportunity for anybody willing to put in the time and am really looking forward to where this takes those who are truly putting in their all.
Also, just want to emphasize... This is totally free, I don't sell anything on the stream or whatever. I started this to put pressure on myself to study everyday. I find its easier when theres a large group thats behind you and I think all the members feel the same way.
The following links are the LiveStream account(with videos saved to check out, also getting a new mic in the mail either tomorrow or wednesday) and the work posted on concept art. Hopefully I will be moving the community here as I like the atmosphere and general setup of these forums

And the work already produced from the stream
Hope people are interested and thanks!
