(this may belong in the art education forums)
I was wondering (because I'd like to do the concept art school next year), would training in illustration be more useful overall than training in concept art? I mean, I know they cross over in some areas, but concept art training seems much more specific to subject matter to me, and yet I know that many people trained in illustration become concept artists. But if you're trained as a concept artist, would you be likely to have that same success doing, say, editorial illustration work?
And I know that this is a difficult question and depends on the individual, but I'm just curious to see what you all think of this question.
