First, sorry for my bad english, it's not my mother tongue.
I've just started learning Unity and C#. It is quite easy and fun, though I would really like to start working right now! I can't stand doing another "personal projects" for the sake of learning. I've done this quite enough in my young days, learning Flash at home etc. I would love to work with a team on some real project, and learning while doing it.
I just don't know what I should do exactly. The thing is I'd also like to work on the art side of a game, I have a lot of ideas, I know a couple of things about style and stuff... I'm a very creative person and I'm not sure I should concentrate on coding, though this is what I do for a living since 10+ years.
Anyway. Any sort of idea or suggestion is welcome, I just need some fresh air and a few tips.

One thing that you might consider is taking a look at UI design and development. Several games use a middle-ware solution called Scaleform which uses Flash, and your combination of fine arts, scripting, and Flash experience could make you the perfect candidate.
