I've just read so many reviews, and articles on laptops that are both compatible with art, graphic design, etc. and gaming that I'm just really confused and I need some extra help searching and what I actually need and don't need. I'm aware that this is a hard find and that my pocket is definitely going to be hit hard, but this will be for school in the next one or two years, because I'm getting my basics out of the way at a community college so I won't be needing it for that, because I have a daily use/gamer already. I also know that digital art shouldn't be too demanding I just want to have what I'll need for the digital art programs. I know basically all the things I'll need for the gaming end, but any suggestions on that topic is extremely useful and helpful. I just need some serious help from more tech savvier people than me.

Any help is great and much appreciated! Thank ya'll!

If you needed a computer for "art stuff", then you'll probably need a tablet. But if you want to game on it as well, what you might need to do is buy something like a Wacom tablet to go along with the laptop, since usually tablets don't have very good graphics cards. What is your budget? I'll include a couple of suggestions.
Graphics Tablet: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EN27UC2/ref=twister_B00F4WM0M0

Sub-$1000 dollar laptop: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834317538
Hope this helps.

I'd Rather not go over 2,500, but I do want a Laptop that's portable, can game just pretty well, good battery life, and of course able to do my artwork and such.

My friends have recommended MSI, but I've heard a lot about there slim designed laptops have a lot of heating issues.

Haven't looked up a whole bunch about Gigabyte but I will check them out and any feedback on there laptops would be helpful.

Thank ya'll for replying!

I've been browsing today and have seen a lot about the origin laptops for both gaming and digital art software. So I found the site and made my own on the site.
Here's the link. Let me know if this is good, or if you have any other helpful information or tips.

The link brings me to an empty cart. But i looked at the site and for gaming maybe one with 8GB RAM and maybe 880M/980M. An i5 should be good for gaming, but you can get one of the i7s without breaking the 2500 mark including components listed above.
