My goal is to be an 3d environment artist in the games industry, working in the classic handpainted style

I've wanted to work in the creative field, specifically games, for as long as I can remember, but couldn't figure out what role I wanted in the industry until I took an art class in high school. For the first time I found an activity I could pour hours into and be motivated to work on during my spare time. It gave me a way to express the ideas I had in my head but could never articulate using words.
