If I were you, I would connect with the video game community. There are big video game animation guys on Youtube like https://www.youtube.com/user/rootay and https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxO_ya-RmAXCXJCU54AxYFw . Also, check out the people at Extra Credits. Each of these groups has an active community of people on Twitter, Discord, and Youtube who would love to help you develop in your career.

Hey James,


Since you want to be an artist in the game design industry, you can build your portfolio by creating 2D and 3D art creations.


Show how you create your creations from start to finish, and showcase your work on social media. You can gauge which style suits you more and which people like.


While you're creating your art creations, apply for internships. Like most jobs, having a an internship is valuable. It is your real-world experience that will help you in the long run.

As with many professional roles, networking is extremely helpful. This can be done by joining a game design meeting group, applying to an internship position, seek out a mentor.

Build up your portfolio. A great way to beef it up is to participate in game design forums and challenges.
