Ok lets put it like this.
If I or anybody else who is unknown make 3d character (human character) which is good looking anatomy, have nice clean topology, nice clothing and modeling,good textures,nice grooming created by haircards etc ready to be rigged and animated something is telling me that i still would not get any job opportunity or even views and likes if I post it on artstation (or any other portfolio showcase). Probably because there are tons of those good looking and functional 3d characters on the internet, then why the hell to do this at all? It is a waste of time. It is ungrateful then. You put tons of hours of hard work and you get nothing.
I can only do it as a hobby for my personal satisfaction, because of course we all love this but after all that hard work I would still ask myself was this worth of my time and effort because I have also real life obligations and responsibilities to do.
