Why are there only three major types of Art programs? And which to choose?
Fine art - Portraits, oils, life drawings, sculptures, abstract
Illustration - book covers, composition rather than technique, abstract.
Design - Clothes, furniture, interiors and exteriors, vehicles.
The 4th would be
Game art - 3D, 3D and some more 3D.
There are no schools that are Concept related in a digital fashion.
Not that I can find anyway.
I'd like to go to a fineart school with an illustration program without having to spend year 1-2 reading about old dead artists and rather spend it on drawing, digitally. Not traditionally (its a preference, I was good at oils in highschool but meh). Seems most schools I find spend A LOT of time just reading up on history. This is completely irrelevant to my interest. I spent all of highschool doing this, I just don't care. It doesn't make me a better artist.
Drawing digitally is just so much more fun than traditionally and if you get a job, you'll be working digitally anyway. Fine art is good for color theory, anatomy etc. The Science of art.
Illustration is good for the actual presentation of an image, composition and design of things.
[I'm just thinking out loud right now.]
Personally I think schools aren't good for teaching but rather good for making friends and develop socially. AND! They're a great place to be while the world spirals into itself^3 and getting a job cleaning urinals is as tough as getting money on art.
So, therefor going to school for a few years while the world either dies or fixes itself is a good way to invest my time. But where to go? I want to make digital art for games, film and all that. But I HAaaaaaaaaaaate 3D. There is nothing fun in making 3D. I know how, but it's sloppy because I just cant bring myself to do it properly. But I love painting!
I'm in sweden right now, and I just hate it here. So I was thinking of studying abroad. Japan was my first thought but I don't know japanese so no school would take me.
Is there any school in your knowledge that educates in 2D game art and doesn't cost you your soul?
How about a good art school that teaches not only portraits or anatomy but ALL aspects of painting. (This also seems difficult to find, at least in my country. It's always this or that, not both.)
