Is concept artist doable without an art degree?

Hi all,
I have been a concept art enthusiast I really wanted to go into the concept / 2D art field but I did not study art at all. Is it possible at all to go into illustration or concept art industry at all without art related subjects at university. How long should I practicebefore even being considered by game/film/illustration companies? Thanks so much.

As a previous director at Gnomon the 3 year program is equivalent in hours to a masters degree. You dont need a degree but your going to have to do a lot of work and studying. Concept specifically will also depend on your taste and personal interest if your obsessed with any subject you have a head start. If you are just starting out then look at 3 to 5 years to get to the point you feel adequate. 3 to 5 years is nothing so go for it if you want it
