So, I am just 19 y.o. guy who wants to start his career as 3D artist,
especially in character creation. But I have many questions that really
make me confused and little depressed:)
First, I have never drew
some complicated things in my life, just some ordinary stuff, and right
now I have no strong skill to earn money or whatever, is it a point not
to get started? Or maybe I should try, even If I am new in this. I drew
some pictures on these days, and I feel that I have passion and some
little talent especially in illustration.
Okay, If I have
started from the very begining, I think it will take a lot of time to
develop a good skill, maybe a year or something, maybe even more. So in
this year, for me it's not possible to create something really good in
3Ds Max right? Because I don't have this skill of drawing and modeling
and it's just in developing stage.
After one year or even more I
will only take a start in good 3d modeling process, and the other
question appears - competition between others. So, because I have very
poor skill and I am in very begging, how should I earn the money?
Through the freelance? Nobody will take me this young in a good company,
no companies need newbies in their work. On the freelance there are
many people too who do their jobs at decent level. If I will take a
position straight as they have taken, same quality of projects, fast
creation and etc, how much money will I earn on the beggining stages?
This question bothers me most, because I live in a poor european country
called Moldova and I am at his point in my life when I should take a
strong decision, where I should go next and how my life should look like
in future, what is my profession and goal. In my country I will earn
very little money, maximum 300 $ each month. So I got stuck:)
about the competition again, there are many people who may take my job
at freelance and I will be left without anything:). Of course there is a
way to lie to customers by making a fake portfolio, but at the point
when I can handle many project by myself this probably can increase the
possibility to take project.
And in future, how much money will I
earn If I will be doing this over the years, If I will grow in my
skills and talent? Okay, if cannot answer this question say about
yourself, about your past, how much time did you spend earning some
stable amount of money, how much time did you spend developing some
By the end I want to say, If you can answer all my
question and give me the answers I will be really happy, because I am
very confused right now what to do in my life, and I will appriciate any
useful answers that you will send me or give me some information that I
didn't mention in my questions!
Thanks in advance Polycount community!
