I'm a medium newbie in 3d art, just had my acquaintance with all the tools in Blender, also have some experience in Unity. Looking forward to becoming a 3d artist myself, but can't pick a specific category of work (wanna separate from the mass to decrease competion with colleagues).
My main option is environmetal art (as I understand, creating props and whole sceneries), but to specialize even more, I want to study nature part of this niche (trees, stones, rivers, water, fog, lighting, weather, also possibly related categories like plant pots, terraces, natural errosion of the buildings, I don't even know yet, but all related to nature).
I'm feeling very unconfident. Would there be a demand for such a specific artist? After all, almost any environment needs some foliage
Are there artists who already narrowed their work to this extent? Or better, those who already work as a "natural" environment artist?
How well paid is this niche? How fun is it to only work on nature theme? How and what to begin with if my goal is to master this specialization?
Thank you very much for help! I'm really lost x)
