I went to a game school, but the school really taught me mostly 3D skills. For 2D painting, I found forums like conceptart.org and cghub.com insanely helpful. You may be able to save on expensive tuition if you can stay focused and self-motivated. Openess to critique is a must - artists tend to bruise easily, but the sooner you get thicker skin the better
Hope this helps. Best of luck! And appreciate your kind comment.
