Hi, my name is Michael Withers. I have a few questions that hope you help me with.
I'm 18 (19 in December) and currently living in the UK but at the end of November i shall be going back to Australia. In the UK near me we have a collage course going on for games developers, but sadly i cannot join it because it is a 2-3 year course and i shall be gone end of this month. I shall be moving to Adelaide but i don't know what collage is near where I'm moving, or how to get sponsored for doing the course or even if you can get sponsored for doing a course. Also i don't know if my current qualifications will effect if i can get on the course or not, seeing as the school system is different in Australia (in the UK we goto school for 5years. not alot of time to learn i assure you, so we finish around 16/17 years old) and i don't know weather or not i have to re-take the tests to get Australian results or if my GCSE's would do.
My other question is that i don't know what program i should use to make game characters. Weather its Maya, Cinema 4D, 3D Studio Max, Z-Brush or whatever. i play over 90hrs of game-play a week. i create art in adobe photoshop but i know that wont help in the games developing industry
so can someone please help me out?
