    Digital-Tutors (Photoshop)

    Hi, I decided to study Graphic design, expecially I'm keen on videogame so I want to became a Games graphic designer. I found the website Digital-Tutors.com, it's full of interesting tutorials about graphic arts, I would like to have yours advice about which "learning path" I must absolutely study to improve my drawing skills in Photoshop (I used Photoshop for years, but I haven't got solid basis to draw everything in simply and rapid way). I don't know if I explained clearly the situation.   Here there are some courses... http://www.digitaltutors.com/learningpath/software/Photoshop-tutorials       Someone can help me?      Ps: sorry for my English, I'm Italian

    Italian girl wants to be a game designer

    Hi, can i ask you what's the real difference between a Computer Games Art degree and a Computer Games Animation degree? I found these courses at Teesside University  http://www.tees.ac.uk/prospectus/ug/UG_course.cfm?courseid=11&fos=1&fossub=2#coursecontent   and http://www.tees.ac.uk/prospectus/ug/UG_course.cfm?courseid=205&fos=1&fossub=2#coursecontent   I can't understand why Games art and Games animation are in two different courses..

     I'll keep in mind these universities, but i think that i'll opt for a course with less access requirements        Really?  This surprised me

    I found  a bit 'of courses in Ireland and Uk but I have no idea if they are valid or not...  What's the difference between Certificate Courses, Degree Courses, Diploma Courses and Postgraduate Courses ?

    Interesting, but i don't really understand what are these "levels required" in Italy: Higher AABB; A Level BCC; ILC (H) AABB; BTEC Extended Diploma DMM Essential subjects: Art English and Maths: All applicants must have passes in English and Maths in any of the following: SQA Standard Grade 1-3, National 5 grade A-C, Intermediate 2 grade A-B, GCSE grade A-C. Advanced entry (year 2)  Advanced Higher/A Level: AAB (Art)   Overseas/EU All applicants are required to provide certified proof of competence in English Language and the University's minimum requirements are listed here Alternative Qualifications Applications are generally assessed on the basis of standard school leaving qualifications such as SQA Highers or GCE A Levels. For those with alternative qualifications, consideration is given to professional qualifications or other forms of formal academic learning as well as experience gained that could provide evidence of ability to benefit from a particular course.

    Yes, i recently admit to my self that  My biggest problem is that i have got a lot of interests and i find hard to outline my own future study or career path. I never had clear ideas, but i think that speak with people who know game dev area better than me will be very useful, thank you all for this opportunity  I'll follow your advices =) =)     There is a book, "What Color Is Your Parachute?", that you might find helpful for that.  It has been a top selling book for decades so you can probably find several editions in your local library.   In that book there is a section called the Flower Diagram. It helps you figure out what is important to you (your petals) and ways to nurture and grow your own flower. Work through the process described in the book to build your diagram. It can take some serious work, some people take multiple weeks of soul-searching to figure out their personal answers. If you have worked through the process carefully, you will discover a highly personal diagram that lets you see: * Passions and interests you want to follow, and why they are important to you * Values, purposes, and goals you have in your life that will affect your work, and why they are important to you * Where you want to be geographically, and why * People and environments you want to work with, and why * Working conditions you want, and why * Levels of responsibility and Salary that describe both reasonable values and ideal values * The skills and traits that you feel define who you are as they relate to the six areas above   Since you don't seem to know exactly what you want to do (you don't know if you want to create art, or to create designs, or to create code) I think that exercise would be very useful.    Thank you Frob i ordered it :D    Unfortunately Italy is in a critical situation, there's no job, and those who have degrees or other qualifications is underestimated than those who haven't it. (Italy is the Country of contradictions), courses are expensive, university is bad organized, i hope to find something better abroad, here there's no future.

    I read some of these articles, very interesting thanks... Sincerly i'm a little discouraged, i have got 24 years old and I live in a Country where Game Dev is still something "mysterious"...    Maybe i'm just a little late...

    Italian girl wants to be a game designer

    Hi, thank you for answer me, i'll give you more information about me: - unfortunately i'm totally in confusion, the videogame's developing area is larger than i expected, But i can tell you that i want to improve my graphical skills and become part of a game developing team, so i have got a keen interest in graphic design. I know that game designer has an important role in game production and must have a lot of competences, not only artistical, fortunately i've got a lot of interest  I have an High school diploma in IT, i haven't got a University degree. I choose Ireland just because it's my own preference, i love Ireland and Scotland I tried to start my own game project many times, but i don't really have a lot of competences and always leave it. In the web i found a lot of courses in Ireland. Can i post the links?
  12. Hi everyone, I'm a 24 years old Italian girl, the next year probably i'll move to Ireland to study, i want to become a game designer, but i don't know what kind of certification could be useful for my future, i read about Cenit college and Pulse college in Ireland, at the end of the course they release a FETAC level 6 major award, is it something useful? i don't really know nothing about foreign certification, expecially in Ireland or UK. Someone could help me? Thanks in advance  DeveloperXS
