Alright, so given my current poor state of financial stability, I cannot afford to go to school for illustration, but I think my ideas are good and that I lack in the skill.. so it could be a very good thing... however, I cannot decide between a painting degree or a drawing degree.. no matter which I choose I will be taking many of both drawing and painting courses.. but Im unsure of what would be better for concept art or illustration. I know painting is awesome for showing textures and making emotions.. and it MAY help with digital painting though I dont see to what extent... but then again.. drawing is VERY important I can see.. and drawing enables some detailed textures as well.. maybe not so much with colored pencils. Any advice? ... Finally found a path I like.. now its just a matter of refining the idea.. as is the case in most aspects of life.
