So I want to become a concept artist, is it important to have a degree? I would absolutely love to go back to school, but I have so many financial problems and family issues that Its somewhat impossible to go back. So Im just wondering If I can self taught artist, and just build my portfolio from there? and just take classes here and there if I can afford it. Money is a big issue but I do draw 3-6 hours each day or sometimes more. Just wondering if a degree is important to becoming a concept artist.
