I've always wanted to head towards the direction of art in my future. However, I still have absolutely no idea what I should be doing, and also do not know much about the art schools in America. (I'm not American nor am I studying in the US...) I'm thinking about advertising art(which my mom recommends) and illustration (when I didn't know anything about art except for paper and pencil) but is still very very unsure about it, and I'd like some more information about this. This sounds weird but, how do I know which major will be suitable for me? (because I don't know a lot..) and the information about them
And most importantly, what are some recommended art schools?
Sorry for my uber clueless-ness and sounding desperate (which I am :-( )
I appreciate your replies and thank you for any sort of advice+/recommendations.
Tell me if there's any additional information needed (ex. my work now?)
What do you want to do?
Do you want to get in to concept art or 3D?
And Do you want to work in the games industry?
A good thing to do is to start drawing. Draw Something every day or att least finnish something every week. then start posting it on to here. Make a sketchbook and start participating in weekly challenges such as character of the week on here.
Get yourself a wacom and start using photoshop as a paint tool.
Art school it not bad, but you dont need artschool to do art. What you do need is doing art and posting it on the web, exposing yourself to feedback.
Ideally, if money wasn't an issue, what sort of artwork would you create? If you tell us that, we might be able to tell you what major is most likely to lead to a career doing what you want to do.
I'm new to this forum (just joined today lol) and will start being more active
I do own a tablet (wacom bamboo fun) for about three years now and is using adobe photoshop cs however I do not feel that I have any improvement. I self-taught myself everything in what I know now of about art and I don't think I'm making anymore progress..
However I do want to get into art schools and I know I need to start working hard now
Thank you so much for you reply
