  1. For a while now I've been angling to go to an institution called Media Design School for a while now in order to take a course on Game Programming, but a few weeks ago I had a rather humbling phone call from one of the tutors and yesterday I attended one of the Open Days and talked with some of the staff. The verdict: I should be doing Game Art?

    Apparently all the work I've done with designing maps for Doom falls under the environs of Game Art rather than Game Programming. The thing that worries me though is that the Game Art course also encompasses traditional art such as drawing and 3D modelling, which I'm unfortunately not so great at. I could possibly be good at art, but I honestly feel like I could use some help in this area. Is there anyone else on here who's looking to or is currently taking a similar course, and if so how would I go about securing a position? Portfolios need to be in by the end of this month and it's got me kind of worried.

      10 to 1 I'll be bored out of my tiny little mind and flunk: there's a reason this is video game oriented. Plus the employment rate after graduation at MDS looks quite promising.
