    Hi there members I have few questions about art. basically I am 16 years old I love to draw mangas or any kind of arts but mainly mangas and graphics design. I am prepared to do any hard work because I enjoy doing it I don't mind doing them both but I don't know if I would get a job for doing manga/graphic design like getting hired by a company in the future? what type of subjects should anyone suggest me to do in GCSE? after graduating GCSEs what type of course should I do to get in the field of manga/graphic design? what shall I do if I got the degree of art or graphic design? some people say that it it's not worth it because I have to build up some experience and it might take up for a long time.

    some subjects I am interested in:
    arts & design
    graphic design

    Drawings I have Done:

    Hi, DaldinDox, well trust me if its what you want to do, its worth it! I would suggest taking ICT, as it links into Graphics. Take Art because your drawings are very unique and great. To get where you want to be it will approximately be five years...depending on what courses you take. It's different with every college because they have their own certain curriculum for a graphic design degree. Build fundamentals. Typically it starts with 4 or 5 general art classes to build the fundamentals. This includes: 2D design, 3D design, photography, Print making and then when you get further the proper real stuff like... Portfolio development, advanced computer graphics, web design, Typography, Press production, computer studio etc. You shouldn't worry too much about the courses/classes as colleges will tell you what you'd need to take to be ...blah blah....etc. I hope this helps.

    Look at www.whatuni.com

    Enter Graphic Design as a subject, and on the next page what you think your realistic A level grades might be. This will give you a long list of relevant Uni courses. You then need to check each individual Uni website for the following :

    * Course content (not all Graphic art courses are the same)
    * Does it include industry experience/placements?
    * What specific A levels do you need? What specific GCSEs are required?

    You will need to build up an extensive art portfolio as part of your application and one that shows your ability at as many art styles/techniques as possible - not just Manga.
