I think this is a good place to ask my questions because most guys here are experienced artists or are working in the creative industry.
Currently, I'm 25 yrs now and is considering a career switch (I'm currently a lowly filing clerk doing admin chores).
I know some basic Photoshop and color coordination, have solid computing background, know some web programming and basic software development etc., and I'm thinking of taking up courses and diplomas in multimedia / interactive media (desktop publishing, brochure designing, those general graphics designing stuff, animation and video etc).
However, one thing which is really holding me back is that I can't draw since I was young. Even my apple or egg doesn't look convincing and a 5-year old can do it better than me.
I've tried drawing (even used to study drawing when I was a teen for 2+ years), but always ended up at the back of my class. I can picture the stuff in my head prettily, but for some reason, my hand can't draw it out.
So, I was thinking, should I still take up such multimedia courses? I'm not sure if my inability to do illustration will render me unsuitable for this course, as well as hinder my career in this field (I'm considering a career in creative industry).
I've looked at other courses like psychology, Human Resource Management, IT, Finance etc but these subjects really put me to sleep.
I'm willing to work hard in the multimedia field but well, illustration......
