Try for three years to become a professional character artist. Send portfolio to professional, he tells me to give up and that I will never be good.

I already deleted my portfolio. But, was wondering if I work 16 hours a day for two years, would I become good enough?

I feel I can make it. But, I might be just emotionally wreked.

I'm 28 so spending two years just doing art and making it at the end might be a good sacrifice. I already have no friends or gf anyway. Just would need to quit my crappy job and neet.

Post work and we'll tell you. I don't believe you that you literally deleted everything, nobody would do that.

My PC is destroyed and my artstation is deleted.

>>599488
what, are you on neetbux or something? Get a new PC.

Fuck, I'm building one right now, just waiting for my SSD and gtx 1080ti to arrive in a few

>>599488
Then you have the more important things to deal with than your 3D art.
>>
>>599486
Try 5 years. You gotta know EVERYTHING.
>>
>>599486
The Professional is probably right.
No real artist with a hint of talent and an ounce of self-respect would
a) work 3 years on a portfolio and not see that the work is actually shit
b) delete his work (unless it IS absolute shit)
c) after working for 3 years in a discipline, be unable to judge his own abilities and future prospects based on the work done.

>But, was wondering if I work 16 hours a day for two years....
>I feel i can make it
I doubt it....putting lots of time into it isn't a guarantee for success as your last 3 years have proved.
Not to mention that the role of professional character artists is one of the most competitive areas of 3d art you can find, even pro's have it difficult.

im no character artist but i feel like i can help you with character art and guide you through the correct tutorials.
you seem to have lot of motivation so its best you start again but this time with different habits
>>
>>599503
So the blind leading the blind?
>>
OP if this is a bait, please die in hell. If not lets analize.

>>Try for three years to become a professional character artist.
I've seen ppl who think that 1-2 hours per week of studing is enough to get good. So please specify how much time did you invest in to achieve your goal.

>>Send portfolio to professional, he tells me to give up and that I will never be good.
You just asked 1 person? Saying that your work is shit can be a decent critique and that you need to improve a lot. There's two options - either the artist you asked critique from is a huge ass and has no manners or you showed him work so disgustingly bad which showed how much of an autist you're and he decieded to help you to save some time.

Stop believing in this meme that unless you're 11/10 industry professional nobody wants to hire or work with you. Be realistic, if you feel that you not capable of finishing a project then go a learn how to. If you learned your basics and can finish a project (in your case a 3D character) then start to build exposure, maybe do cheap requests or even do some work for free. (YOU HAVE TO START SOMEWHERE) AAA studios can wait for later, if you aim too high you may never meet your expectations and will end up with a dissapoitment and depression.

>>I already deleted my portfolio. But, was wondering if I work 16 hours a day for two years, would I become good enough?

Stupid excuse, go to artstation support, they probably can restore your account with all your work. Don't even dare to doubt my option until you try you little shit.

Nobody can tell you exactly how you will become better, but here are some directions - planning, discipline, short and long-term goals, healthy body and mindset, your own research.

>>I feel I can make it. But, I might be just emotionally wreked.

I believe every average human can reach a good level in everything unless you're brain-damaged autist. Dedication and discipline will be a key role.
>>
>>I'm 28 so spending two years just doing art and making it at the end might be a good sacrifice.

Nobody cares how old are you.

My suggestion will be - you have to like at least something about what you're doing. Otherwise quit it. Simple as that.

Nobody, even you can't know if this gonna be a worth time spent, you will have to try it out yourself.

>>I already have no friends or gf anyway

You're human, social interaction with other human beings is a must at least little. Make friends, it's free and can benefit you in a long run. About gf you will have to decide for yourself.

>>Just would need to quit my crappy job and neet.

If job doesn't allow you to persue your passion at all then change the job, if it's not then just get better when ever you have free time to do so. Wish you best, fix your emotional instability.
>>
This is bait, no professional would ever say "give up you'll never be good."

OP should genuinely kill himself though for shitting up the desert of /3/ with his garbage thread that will last for weeks.

Whenever I get a package of plain M&Ms, I make it my duty to continue the strength and robustness of the candy as a species. To this end, I hold M&M duels. Taking two candies between my thumb and forefinger, I apply pressure, squeezing them together until one of them cracks and splinters. That is the “loser,” and I eat the inferior one immediately. The winner gets to go another round. I have found that, in general, the brown and red M&Ms are tougher, and the newer blue ones are genetically inferior. I have hypothesized that the blue M&Ms as a race cannot survive long in the intense theater of competition that is the modern candy and snack-food world. Occasionally I will get a mutation, a candy that is misshapen, or pointier, or flatter than the rest. Almost invariably this proves to be a weakness, but on very rare occasions it gives the candy extra strength. In this way, the species continues to adapt to its environment. When I reach the end of the pack, I am left with one M&M, the strongest of the herd. Since it would make no sense to eat this one as well, I pack it neatly in an envelope and send it to M&M Mars, A Division of Mars, Inc., Hackettstown, NJ 17840-1503 U.S.A., along with a 3×5 card reading, “Please use this M&M for breeding purposes.” This week they wrote back to thank me, and sent me a coupon for a free 1/2 pound bag of plain M&Ms. I consider this “grant money.” I have set aside the weekend for a grand tournament. From a field of hundreds, we will discover the True Champion. There can be only one. What in Davy Jones’ locker did ye just bark at me, ye scurvy bilgerat? I’ll have ye know I be the meanest cutthroat on the seven seas, and I’ve led numerous raids on fishing villages, and raped over 300 wenches. I be trained in hit-and-run pillaging and be the deadliest with a pistol of all the captains on the high seas. Ye be nothing to me but another source o’ swag.

Yeah, this formatting is better.

I highly doubt any real professional would tell you that. If anything he/she might have thought you were trolling.

What, being tidy warrants sterilization?

You can use a new paragraph, but it's somewhat annoying when every one is double spaced.
Personally I prefer this kind of formatting, but really the only reason anyone complains about the other is because it's often linked to being

You seem lost and it feels bad. You need some guidance and a push in the right direction. Try to seek these out. Also starting smaller is never a bad idea.
