@armaan8014: Yeah definitely, I'm just saying if I were to do it over again I wouldn't do Fine Art. But it just occurred to me that the Fine Art courses in America (I'm assuming you're American) could be completely different to the ones in Ireland (where I'm from).

@armaan8014: Thats weird, I didn't realise that a BFA was a requirement. The thing about getting jobs like a concept artist is that in the end what will get you the job is how good your portfolio is. It doesn't matter what kind of college you went to if you have a bad portfolio. The advice everyone is giving is pretty good, the most important thing is to spend A LOT of time on improving your skills. Just look at your favourite game art (and just art in general) and strive for that. The concept art for Uncharted 2 for example is pretty amazing!

I was in the same position as you a few years ago, (my parents wanted me to do architecture too) and I ended up doing Fine Art. In my opinion after three years in the course it was a big waste of time. The thing about a modern fine art course is that it's all about concept (not conceptual as in  concept art for games but conceptual as in  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conceptual_art ) not that theres anything wrong with that I really like conceptual art but when I was painting and trying to improve my skills I had to constantly justify what I was doing with a deep concept behind it but that can be really cool if thats what you want to be doing. However in the three years I've been studying I don't feel like I've learned any useful skills. When ever I talk to my tutors it's always about my concept. If I were to do it over again and I was in your position I would probably do some kind of illustration course. But if your heart is set on fine art definitely talk to some of the students in the course you're going for first and see what kind of work they're doing.  As for me, when I finish out this year I'm going to do a course in 3D modeling.
