I feel a bit overwhelmed there Temeluchus, your post is inspiring, and you're right about the self esteem issues.
The only thing that I really have going for me at the moment is not the quality of the work, but the fact that I love doing it so much. At the moment
for what you're suggesting about a career in this field, seems like its a goal that is too far to reach. In my mind - a few 'clicks' here and
there does "so much" manipulation that it feels I didn't do anything at all. The software does 90% of the work. I would feel better about it if I
actually "took" those photos, or if I used 3D software to create planet scenery. Or I actually drew/painted the figures that I used in the Avatars
- not just editing existing ones.
I tried to enroll into SAE Institute
in Perth to do a 12 month 3D Animation course. The course was
AU$20,000. Too far out of my budget as I'm on a disability pension.
So I am starting to try out DAZ 3D - what I headache , I made a white sphere! *yay* . By the time I figure out the controls, I'm
well on my way for retirement
I hope you see where I'm coming from... On another note, I saw a Clairvoyant a while ago (I know - silly me eh). She said I will be very wealthy as
I make lots of $$ doing graphics/animations. At the time I thought she was reading the person behind me hehe. Well I hope things turn out that way!
Thanks again, much appreciated
