Hey Polycount, I got a new financial question.
I'm wondering if anyone has any experience taking out a loan in relation to when they got started or were working in the industry?
The reason I ask this, is because I realize it was always difficult to work a minimum wage job and save enough money, while simultaneously having to spend money that go towards supporting a portfolio.
I've actually never had debt in my life before. Everything I've done so far I did work part/full time jobs and pay off with my own money. But now I'm at a point of my life where I'm too invested in 3D art, that going back to those jobs just to make a meager income (when games/vfx industry pays more) just doesn't feel appealing.
Again, I've never had any debts. But having heard of so many tales of people who go on loans, I'm wondering if I should do the same if I believe it can help me (while being able to pay it off the minute I do find actual industry work).
