I currently want to become an artist within the video game industry. I have aspects to work for a big company, though I don't want to dream too big so I won't decide on one (but Bungie is always nice hehe). But there seems to be a problem.
I desire to go into more of 3-D Modeling since my drawing skills, while they are quite good, are still quite underdeveloped (and I'm currently working to fix that). I currently go to School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) in, naturally, Chicago IL. This school is quite nice, but they seem to have a limited course selection for 3D Modeling and Animation, as well as are more about conceptual art. By that I don't necesarily mean the concept art that I've been viewing on here, in a sense; but rather any form of 'art' that has a good idea/concept behind it. Due to these facts I am not necesarily sure if this would be a good school to stay in to reach my goals. Although I really like it here I have been looking at other schools and would like to ask for advice.
My parents have set a limit of Midwest and Eastern locations for college, as they do not want to be that far away from me. I have been looking into MICA (Maryland College Institute of Art) and am not sure what type of college I should necesarily be looking for to get into this field, although I do know that MICA has programs for a line of work akin to this.
Thank you in advance for all of your help
