Looking for general advice, tips, personal anecdotes, etc from autodidacts (or anyone else) about learning a complex craft/set of skills on your own
. (details on the particular discipline inside)

I visited Art Center's entertainment design program recently and knew right off the bat that it was the profession for me. Problem is, I still have a lot to learn before I'll be ready to submit a portfolio, and I'm currently up in Oregon working towards a B.A. that I probably want to finish.
I've been pretty disciplined about putting in time to explore and practice on a daily basis, but lately I've been having a terrible time of it. I just don't know how to go about chipping away at this new discipline that I'm largely unfamiliar with. Looking for any and all advice about starting to teach oneself a complex craft.
I know similar questions have been asked in the past, but I was hoping to frame this one in the context of my particular situation, and the specific skill-set I'm trying to learn
