How can I break into game industry?

Recommended Posts

I am a business school student but I really don't like those banking or consulting stuff. To be honest I was planning to go to a design school but my parents rejected it.

I am good at painting but how can a foreigner have an art design job without a related degree. ( I'm from China and the industry there is really disappointing you know)

Maybe I can start from some backstage support jobs?

Please, give me some advice. Very appreciated!

Start with freelance jobs and maybe offer help to one or two projects you like.

Make a strong portifolio on artstation (or deviantart). Keep a solid online presence sharing your art on twitter, facebook, instagram, pinterest and others.

the rest will come as fate determines

Yes, you can.

There's a good deal of game development happening in China. Find companies and apply (with your business school degree). Once you have gained an understanding of how development works, you can make your own opportunities.
