I am in year 8, and have recently been looking around for career ideas. i have already taken my choices and the choice that matters most to this question is DT. I am really wanting a career in Video Games. My first choice was a game designer, while that is still my main choice, I have been thinking towards concept art. I have not taken art . ( My big problem) so is it possible if I just practice and build up a personal portfolio of my art, i could get a A-level/some kind of qualification in illustration?
I think that it would be hard to do A-Level art if you haven't chosen it for GCSE, maybe talk to your teachers and see if you can change your subject choice? As u are only in year 8 you could easily change your subject choices, or if not choose it in year 9 for year 10? If you are able to repick your options I would maybe consider choosing computing or iMedia maybe since its about programming. Hope this helps xx
