Ever since I finished my bachelors in American culture and literature I have been begdrudgingly working as an english teacher for the past 6 years. I have always enjoyed drawing and have done countles tutorials, read books etc to improve myself.
I find myself wanting to break away from teaching at this point in my life. I am confident that If I allot all my time to illustration and digital art in general I will be able to break into the gaming industry.
Comparing myself to other peoples work and seeing my own improvement I can give myself a 6 out of 10 overall. My question is, I finally quit my teaching job and have this large sum of money saved up. There is this university where I live that offers a masters in graphic design.
If I go for it, that means dumping ALL my saved money on it. I looked at the curriculum and the people over there told me I could take extra lessons that they teach during the bachelors to catch up. Should I go for it? Do you guys think the skills theyll teach and people I will meet warrants dumping all my money and be supported by my family for the next two years or should I just stay home, draw crazy everyday and get subscribed to some online schools that specializes in game art and digital art.
