Am I too late to start a career in Concept Art?

Hello, I was recently let go from my job in the aviation industry due to the Covid-19 crisis. I am now 31 years old and currently looking for a different career path. I always had a passion for drawing and concept art in general, and I used to practice as a hobby but I never made a career out of it. Also, I never had any formal education on it. Could anyone working in this area help me to clarify some doubts? 1. Am I too late to start a career at 31 yo, particularly having no degree? 2. Do I need a university degree or a more technical course would suffice? 3. Given my age, would I be in disadvantage compared to younger people? I'm guessing this is a highly competitive area, and I would love some advice to help me decide if I should invest in it. Any help would be highly appreciated! Thank you and regards, Rodolfo #art #career #artist #conceptart #videogames #digitalpainting #drawing

In what region would a college graduate find the most success in finding a job as a Video Game Designer or something related?

I am willing to move, I am willing to spend all my time searching and making myself as appealing as possible to employers. This is the one industry I want to put my foot in the door and never remove it. I write fiction for fun, I study in my own time, I am dedicated and committed to learning, and I would not be happy unless I had a job that allowed me to be creative with a team of like-minded individuals. #college #job-search #career #videogames

For Video Game Designer, what things would I need to do and accomplish to make myself as appealing as possible for hire at a professional company?

I, while having enough dedication and intelligence to go into other fields primarily medical, have always been interested in story telling, character creation and development, and interactive experiences just to name a few. As an avid gamer, reader, and watcher of movies, I really enjoy cohesive visions that involve all the different aspects of communicating a story to the audience. This industry however seems so difficult to get into and I don't know what to do or where to start so that I could break into it. I know that I would be an asset to any creative team having written pieces of fiction ever since I was young in addition to having studying gaming in my free time when I'm not busy with life or playing one. I want to best I can be and to work on a project is my greatest dream. Nothing would make me happier. #Gaming #Designer #videogamedesigner #videogames #creativity #storytelling #art #technology

What would it take to become a Professional eSports player?

I know that with becoming a professional eSports player you would need practice with the game you would like to play competitively, practice to build your skills, and train either by yourself or with a team of your own. But I would like to know something more in depth such as what qualities does a coach look for in a player, how tournaments work, and how the overall outlook on it is. #eSports #videogames #professionalgamer
