I recently enrolled in a school for 3D Modelling, Animation and Design as of September 28, 2020. I'm at the ripe age of 46 and I have some art experience, tried a little 3D in the past and lost some of the art in video games like Resident Evil, God Of War and Utopia Syndrome, to name a few.
My goal would be to do Character Concept and possibly Environments.
If my goal was to become a Character or Environment artist, where should my focus be? Should I be scouring job posts now and figuring out what everyone is looking for? Any advice would be appreciated if it means me getting closer to my dream job.
