My name is Eric and I'm not really into the college thing here in the U.S.
I just started drawing and I Know I want to persue 2D animation ONLY!
I really want to go to Japan to study japanese and I could honestly care less about the degree. I feel like if I have the will and work hard I should be fine. I'm asking you all if I should teach myself ( with the help of books of course) or maybe take a few classes at a school for the things I get stuck at. If I was told correctly you don't need a degree and people will hire you if your work is great and that's what I want to ultimetly achieve.
I also want to study animation in Japan if I had the chance and I'm applying for a full ride scholarship there so I won't be so much in debt then going to a school like full sail or scad.
What do you guys think?
I only want 2D and I don't like the trend of 3D in america.
I'm starting my own studio so working for anyone else ( except maybe for those for a japanese company for a little while).
