Question school or no school ?

Hi people,

I pratic the 3D since not for a long time. My friend help me regulary in 3dsmax for modeling,texture,landscape .... . In the futur, I'm going learn zbrush in small time. I create characters. My future passion ^^.

My question is: I shall like becoming a modeler 3d characters.

In France, there is really no school which really trains in the modelling of character. I saw a school considered: Vancouver Film School

This school learns us specially to model characters or not too much? Because I am fascinated, if I do not go into a school it disturbs me in no way but it is rather for my parents XD. (and i have not lot of money :( ).In the work, the companies accept easily the self-taughts if they are well? Motivated?

Thank you very much all

You might want to consider another option - since you want to do characters, why not do a degree in fine art, focusing on drawing and sculpture? The most important skill for a character artist is an excellent understanding of anatomy, and this can take a long time to master. You can buy DVDs which instruct modelling techniques that'll allow you to transfer your traditional art skills to your digital work, and doing a fine art degree will probably cost less than a specialised school like VFS.

Thank you very much for this answer which goes a lot help me. I think of making that you me said, internet is the best school according to my opinion.

But in the jobsof video games or the cartoon film, the companies recruit that on the portfolio ?

If we do not gain widespread acceptance of video games, it's not serious ? I think not but well.
