I am new on Gamedev and I just read the FAQ
I will turn 17 soon and I already know what my dream job is. First of all, i though about industry design, but as a gamer I would like to combine my hobby and job. As I am not like my brother, who is an ace in programming, I decided to pursue a line of career in something similar like Level Design or Charakter Design. I am already practicing hard for my drawing skills and some days ago I researched about the topic.
As I understand, it's big plus to be familiar with some Engine. Therefore I downloaded Unity, UDK and Source SDK just to look which is better for myself.
BUT, all that is a lot of information and I am just a beginner. So my question is:
1. What do I need for proper use of these tools, for getting acceptable results? (Languages?) (I know one: Time and patience )
I would also be pretty happy about aditional info regarding your start into all this, the career of a level designer et cetera
