I would like to get into the game developing field, tried my hand at programming (perl, java, etc) but I find that I'm more suited to the creative and visual aspects. I'd like to get into 3d modeling. Currently I started enrolling in a multimedia and design class at college, but I'm not sure if there's anything else I should do. Does anyone know if there are good places to learn 3d software used for games in California? I have Maya and 3ds max. Should I just learn them myself and make a portfolio? I understand games take forever to make and its best to start small and work up. I'd love to make a game of my own and be part of a team. I have some good ideas and a dream game I would love to develop, but I'm not sure if anyone would listen unless I had some skills. Scripting also sounds interesting as well. Can anyone give me any advice?

As for schools in California, I know in the Bay Area, there are at least 15 schools you could go to for learning the skills you need.
