HI, Just wanted to start off saying i want to be a Graphics Designer. Currently Im Active duty Army and want to get out and finish my BA in GD. I have 3 years to hone my skills because i just found out im going to Germany for the next said 3 years. I just got back from Afghanistan about 40 days ago and was gifted a 27 inch Imac (maxed out) and CS6 master collection. and i picked up a bamboo tablet. so my question is what books and software do i really need, what do i need to focus on? are there different fields to Graphics Design? what college classes do i need to take? and how do i get better at what i love doing, creating. TL;DR i got the gear but how do i use it.
