You don't have enough posts to edit your title. Even with the post minimum, you would only have a 15 minute window.

To find an answer to your question, you need to first look in to the communities such as www.polycount.com or conceptart.org, etc and see how working members got in.

Many of them dont have a degree, because it is a trade, almost like programming, you do have to know the tools that are required to find work in such field but it is brutally judged since it is Art.

The only thing a degree can do for you is if you live overseas and wish to work in North America. They ask you if you have a degree in this field so they can request an H1 Visa.

Are you interested in (or even passionate about) the subject?

Not passionate, but yes I was interested in the subject therefore I posted my opinion.

I did for both, his stated topic (which was mistakenly posted according to him,) and his first post regarding the job prospects after he gets a degree.

The only prospect here after a degree is he gets to work overseas.

Every company that requires a graphics designer would require him to present his portfolio and based on that he will have to go through an art test regardless of a degree.

I dont see where have I misread before replying.
