I have been going hard on learning blue prints the past couple days im about to buy myself a Udemy course soon too, i have mostly been practiced in doing pixel art via Aseprite and blender. Is the looking for work / offering work section still the section for looking for a small team?
I’ve seen lots of people offering teamwork as they learn Unreal. They mainly look for people willing to work together as a “hobby”. Just be sure to follow the template when recruiting and you should be all set!
Goodluck in finding like-minded devs.
