My BA is in Interior and Furniture Design, more closely aligned with interior architecture than decor. I got really into building 3D models of my buildings and interior spaces and this became the most interesting aspect of the programme to me.
I'm 29 and have been working in educational management due to a lack of jobs in the construction industry in my country.
I'd really like to work as an environment artist and maybe level design down the line, but I'm torn between whether to do an MA in Game Design or whether to just learn Maya and Zbrush, build up a portfolio and try to get work without any game specific education.
I've received mixed advice on this issue from a few people that I've talked to in the industry, just looking for some feedback/advice/personal accounts.
