New member here and just wanted to introduce myself and ask a question. I'm an electrical engineer by profession who is currently unemployed. I've always loved art, comics, movies, fantasy, sci fi, video games, etc. and have been taking drawing classes for a year now.
At first it was just a hobby, but now I am seriously considering a drastic career change into the field of art, specifically video games. My end goal is to do concept work, but I am currently taking classes in 3D Studio Max and photoshop to get my foot in the door.
Has anyone here made or thought of making a career change into this field?
I realize that it's a long bumpy road, but how do you keep your drive and motivation during the down times?
I'd appreciate any other helpful tips as well. Thanks in advance!
