I know what you mean by ‘establishing your own vision’.. pretty much all illustration courses focus on mixed media stuff and trying as many things possible like collages and paper cutting instead of actual drawing foundations.good luck with applying!
yeah, exactly! while i’m all for trying out as many techniques as possible, i also want to be able to focus on digital art and improving my own style. most of the illustration courses in my country aren’t even that keen on digital art to begin with. still, i doubt game art will focus on the drawing foundations either so that’s probably something i’ll have to teach myself, or i’ll take (online) courses.
either way, thank you! <3
In the end university courses are a lot more about giving you the tools and time to learn than spoonfeeding you knowledge, so even if their art programme proves to be lacking, you can pursue it yourself to become better. Best of luck
that’s true. schools provide you opportunity but won’t guarantee that you use it wisely. i’m at least taking a step in the direction of where i want to end up. so far i’ve been a self-taught artist, so with enough motivation and dedication i’m sure i’ll be able to fill in the gaps where the program lacks, myself.
thank you for the encouraging words! <:
good luck! <3
thank you so much! <:
Best of luck to you! :D
thank you! <3
oooh nice where did you apply?? :D
game art at the hku. SO YOU’LL BE SEEING ME AGAIN, MAYBE. HUEHUE.
i first wanted to apply for illustration as i really want to learn more about the basics of art, colour theory and anatomy, that sort of stuff y’know? but when i went to check out some art schools, none of them appealed to me. :/ they’re all way too focused on ‘establishing your own vision’ and generally they’re leaning more towards fine art than illustration. that’s cool and all but i wouldn’t fit in there, i think. i’d like to become a concept artist, so technically game art would seem the perfect choice. still, people aren’t very positive about the quality of the art program so that scared the hell out of me last year (which resulted in me applying for animation instead). finger’s crossed this will turn out to be better for me.
so, i applied to art school again. let’s see how things turn out this time!
oh, woah, really?? thank you so much, anon! you seriously made my day :D
