Sorry if there is already a question like this, i searched but didn't found the answers i'm looking for. I need advice on what should i focus more and where i should start, i need a plan. Currently i'm in arts school and i do have a passion for programming since i was 10. I have some web programming experience (php, mysql, js, etc) and i am capable of learning and understanding a new programming language like C++.
The question is, where i should start? On what i should focus more, the design part(concept art, character design, 3d modeling) or the programming part. What 3d modeling software i should use? (3d studio max or maya)? What books i should read and in which order?
When i started learning web development i did it on my own, and i got lost, i didn't knew what i should do next, i read poor articles that didn't taught me a thing and it took me a while. So, with this said i would like to start getting into game development right, and i think your advice and your support will do the best job for me and for other people in my situation.
