The name Is Eru here.
I really want to talk to people or some commencing advice for me in the direction I want to go.
I'm currently studying at Media Design School in New Zealand in 3D animation. I started of liking 3D because it is made for games, however I want to design creatures or environments for games. I was enjoying 3D as I was self teaching myself, but as further as I got into 3D I'm not enjoying it as much as I thought, I then slack off with the work I do in class. Before I came into the school I wanted to be a concept artist and a 3D artist but there is too much work to put in 3D aswell as concept art. I'm enjoying digital painting and concept art in my spare time. I believe my dream goal is to be a game concept artist or a gamedesigner also like movies aswell and books maybe too. I like drawing and designing with a full imagination.
My main concern is 3D to me is really technical, you have to worry about using a bunch of programmes to make things work or do something better, you have to move stuff in modelling where as creating something by pencil or painting (digitally/traditional) will be much faster to produce loads amount of drawings and ideas. However I want to learn Zbrush and sometimes I use sculptris, you dont have to worry about things to make something work, you can sculpt like you would sculpt. I must be naive
Again it goes back to the difference between pre production, post production and production, which one do I prefer(pre production i like).Unfortunately here in New Zealand there is no school called concept art school. I'm a little lost and I don't know where to go. Fengzhu Design School is one of my goals to go to.
Sorry for talking so much but I'm 19 years old and need help getting somewhere for my future.
Thank you all
I wasnt sure what thread this goes into sorry moderators, Support thread seemed a bit different to my question
