I've been programming in C++ for 2 years now and I recently started to take some Udemy/YouTube courses (also, reading A LOT of UE4 documentation). I nearly have some knowledge about creating assets (3d - basic voxel art, 2d - 1 week of messing up in illustrator, sounds - nothing) and I've been wondering if I should start to train this skill too (like learning Blender/Maya/Illustrator, to create sound effects), or should I focus on programming and maybe get other people to make the assets for me? … [Read more...] about Is trying to master both programming in C++ and creating assets for your game too much for a single person to handle?
