Here's a fun assignment: Next time you watch a 3D animated movie, hang back and watch the credits. You'll notice each aspect of the design process (modeling, texturing, animation, rendering, set design, special effects...etc) will have a team dedicated to it. Pretty much the bigger the company is, the more specialized the artists are. You can always start as a generalist and learn how to do the main techniques (Modeling, Texturing/Lighting, Rigging/Animation, and Rendering). Once you're comfortable with that you'll develop a preference within the process that you can specialize in (mine is rendering and I enjoy doing product renderings as a freelancer). Hope that helps!

The short answer to this is: yes! It is very common for 3-D animation/modeling to be a multi-part process. Even for video games, the process is a streamline - passed down sketch/blue-print artists to the 3-D modelers that may branch out to specific artists who specialize in clothes, character physics, hair-physics and more.

I remember watching behind-the-scenes clips and footage from Shrek 1 and 2, included on the DVDs, that show you some of the processes of creating the film - there's a whole lot of people working on all of the same thing!
