I have heard that getting a career in the game and art industry is extremely hard and competitive.
I love games very much, and have even learned many things on my own. People usually say I have a natural talent/gift for it, but if I can't find a career with it, should I just start learning something else? Is it worth majoring in Game Art Design? I don't want to have to gamble for a job...
I like science, and have started thinking of signing up for Biology/Genetics courses, but I still find game art design to be more fun...(another issue being that my parents are basically forcing me to go to a community college, none of which have 3D or Game Design classes.)
Am I better off to just stay with the e-books and e-tutorials for learning game-art design as a side-job, while I study another major?
