I'm a generalist 3D art/3D animation/VFX student, just wanting to get some industry advice on where I should direct my learning or if I should specialise early on. Do concept artists by their nature get more creative agency than 3D artists? Or does it depend on the size of the studio? I love all aspects of 3D art and animation, but I'm a bit worried I'll be working off other people's concepts for most of my career - I'm totally okay with doing that for years but not my entire career.
I'm not too bad at drawing but not incredible, would it be worth dedicating a lot of my time to drawing skills if I do want more creative agency in the future? Is it much different depending on whether the project is a film, video game or tv show?
