This is a bit childish, but I am having a crisis.
Me and my parents just had a fight, I am 17 years old and I got 1 year to apply for a University.
I selected: http://www.futureworks.co.uk/game-design-course.html
They tell me, it's fake, when I was there and it's applyable by UCAS, means it will be goverment funded.
Now, let's jump straight to the point.
I want to be a Concept Artist, and work in the entertainment industry, be it on a film or a game. I want to create concepts like monsters, characters, heroes, you know Feng Zhu type of stuff.
WHAT QUALIFICATIONS DO I NEED FOR THAT?
They are telling me I should go to Oxford or Hogwards or Howard or whatever the crap that is, I tell them, to be a Concept Artist you need to be fucking good at drawing and be a good designer, they don't believe me they say I need good grades, they are telling me, that employees who will hire me will want to see my CV and my grades before viewing my Portfolio.
I believe that portfolio is my grade, and none of the industries will give 2 damns about what college I went to, or even if I went to any at all, or even if I have a degree... Please dear god help me
This is the course they want me to do, which has nothing to do with Concept art or drawing
