Hi. I am in a college learning Game Art. I’m a Junior now, and I am considering getting my own computer to work on these things in my own space.
But the thing is, i am debating on whether to invest in building my own PC or invest in a laptop. The only pros and cons i have so far is strictly portablility and money. Having a laptop would be easier to bring around with me so i can work, but i know having a PC means i can make it a lot stronger and do a lot more for me.
I will not just be working in Unreal Engine for this. I will also be using Maya, Substance Painter, Perforce, and other possible programs in the future considering I’m still aJunior and i do plan on being a lighting artist once i graduate.
