As an artist, what degree should I get?
I know I don’t want to be a graphic designer. My husband does that for a living and I just don’t have the patience for more of the typography-based stuff. I do mostly illustration and character designing for really small projects and commissions here and there.. but I’m finding it really hard to pinpoint exactly what I need a degree in to get my foot in the door to be a character designer for, ..let’s say a movie company like Dreamworks or Pixar. There aren’t really degrees in character design specifically, so would someone with a Bachelors Degree in just art or along those lines be able to get a job like that? Or is it more based off of not really what degree you have but how much talent and if you just took SOME sort of art program in college? I’m 25 and a married mom and really wondering what to do. Drawing is my passion and I’m always wanting to learn more. I want to go back to school.. but for WHAT exactly? Help?
