Hey hey hey,
I want to learn art professionally .I've been a hobbyist since I can remember,but I really want to create work and make an income out of it. Before you ask, no, not video game concepts.
I'm mostly interested in creating art books, gallery work, collectors work, videos, photos. I really want to work from a really multimedia style. Such as Alex Pardee or David Choe (before facebook) and many recent artists who have been successful.
But before that. I really want to improve my knowledge and experience by attending a art school. I live in England and have to funds to be able to afford it. I work a shitty job that pays good.
Could anyone help he out of where to look? I don't even know what fine art would teach at Uni, is it history? Or is it practial?
Is uni the best route to learn art if you want to learn practical skills or are there art schools?
I have no idea.
I just need pointing in the right direction, websites that may help, personal experience. anything.
Will dump some art.

I'm working on a portfolio to be sent as part of a college application. I'm applying for an illustration major, and the portfolio is 7-10 pictures from direct observation and 7-10 from photographs/imagination. Obviously most of that is going to be still lives, portraits, environments, etc.
However, I love comic books and that's what inspired me to draw. The worlds of comics and illustration do overlap, and I don't think there's anything wrong with including one or two comic inspired pieces that show off good penciling and inking skills, as well as thought out composition. Nothing too stylized of course. Most likely it'd be one page of a comic and either a character model sheet or promotional image. I'm curious about what should be avoided though. For example, I've drawn some stuff of the Justice League recently that I really like, but I don't know if using licensed characters is a bad idea or not.
Any other advice about college portfolios would be helpful, as this is kind of stressful. And I completely understand why some people here don't recommend art college, but this isn't the thread to argue about that.
