How do I become a Game Environment Artist/Level Designer/3D Artist?

As a person who has hired many artists in his life I can tell you this:In order to get a job as artist in the video games industry you need two things: a kick ass portfolio (showing relevant work) and a cool social personality (because you will work in a team).A third thing that I look for as a bonus is whether someone has a strong technical side. Making video games is a very technical endeavor and the more everyone knows about what goes on under the hood the better.So:You are cool (right?)Being very technical is optional.That leaves us with the big one: a kick ass portfolio…I would start by downloading some 3d modeling software and playing around with it. There are plenty of great video tutorials you can follow these days. Plenty of forums to post your work. If you have passion for it and dedicate the time you will improve rapidly.These days most large cities have (digital) art schools that will get anyone but the worst a decent shot at getting their foot in the door. When I was hiring people for EA we would regularly go and hire the top 20% of a graduate class. Another 50% would be picked up eventually by other companies.The art school route is probably the most straight forward way for an aspiring game artist. It can be expensive, especially for the more prestigious schools, but you get what you pay for.You have the advantage that you want to do environment art. This is probably the easiest to get into because games require way more env artists than, say, character artists or animators.If I were you, I would stick with and specialize in environment art and develop your technical side. If you show up at an interview with a great env art portfolio and examples of scripts you made to help you simplify your tasks, you got the job.

In the game artist colony how do you make dylan and ben inspired it keeps saying their too depressed to work.?

•Inspiration- Any artist will become inspired when their inspiration meter reaches 95% or more. An artist cannot work on a masterpiece unless they are inspired. Artists may become inspired by watching a crush (if they're in love), looking at monuments, flowers, water, or looking at the masterpieces of other artists. Take note, looking at nature will only inspire them up to 80%.

•Falling in Love- Artists become more inspired and create more valuable masterpieces when they are in love or have a broken heart. Artists may at some point think about another member of the colony: drag them near that person for them to either fall in love or have a broken heart. Note this is not a permanent event and any artist can fall in love or have their heart broken any number of times.

If Your Artist in Inspired but won't Create- Sometimes you may have inspired artists, but when you drag them to their area of performance, they won't do anything: this is not a glitch. Usually this means you have to either wait for a new month to start, or you need to sell more masterpieces. The key is patience: eventually they'll be allowed to create again.
