I am a senior in highschool applying for art schools. After seeing the works of successful and talented artsts like Feng Zhu, Doug Chiang , I knew for sure i wanted to be like them.
So my question is this, what is the second best art school that could prepare me for the field of concept/movie-making art? One that taeches solid drawing and visualization skills, rather than how to design chairs and cups.
I know that Art Center is the top school for many areas of Art/Design, but realistically, my highschool portfolio does not compare to others who are much older and have taken numerous Saturday/Night classes there. I'd like to start my career in this industry gradually, rather diving head in.
I am looking at Pratt, RISD, and Carnegie Mellon, looking to major in Product/Industrial Design. Are those good schools?
Thanks for you time.
