>>634518part2>feel constant pressure from myself to create something, but no discipline and skills>feels like I often waste time>motivation swings>get upset when I don't make progress over a weekend>be unhappy at work thinking I could be doing 3d instead>writing this greentext instead of retopo my model...I don't know where I was going with all that, I don't have a good ending, it's just my life in progress. I'm financially stable, and got my own place, but I think I need that passion, and that sort of makes me unhappy. That greentext is a summery of about 8 years of my life
>>634416>>Wake up and all programs were closed.Your absolute faggot OS just pushed another update and force-restarted your PC while you were sleeping.
>>634641>Post creepy story on /3/>Someone explains it when it was already understandableToo much meta, too scary.
How about this?>waste entire youth smoking weed, driving around in stolen cars etc.>completely skip school>life is ruined>at 20 decide to start fresh>want to really improve my life and work hard>completely re-do all school education>enter university at 25>keep studying + working part time>at 33 leave with 3 useless degrees, starting a PhD just for giggles>start learning 3D on the sideI plan on creating a portfolio while writing my PhD thesis.Let's assume I'm somewhere around 36/37 and have a decent portfolio. Do I have any chance finding permanent on-site employment? I don't care what studio or where it is, or what I'm working on. I'll do anything. Just want to survive.
ok now my turn:>be me>25 yo, computer science drop out>no friends, no girlfriend>neet> live with mom>brothers actually finished college and have a clear idea of where to go>bad healt anxiety and ocd>don't ever leave my house >i keep thinking i'm gonna have a heart attack and die for sitting to much>self taught zbrush/maya/ps>actually ok artist>mexican mexico thus inferiority complex
>ignore thots in college>fuck>all the couples I know met in college>Tinder Bumble Instagram Fuck Pile App has ruined dating>3D requires working in LA>everyone here is a 9/10 or higher>16 hours a day sitting at computer>overweight stress eater>5'5">no hobbies, work is hobby, all hobbies are for working better>tfw 3D is shifting to more cartoony overwatch fortnite horseshit
>>637578>Do I have any chance finding permanent on-site employment>hmm, should i hire one of the countless super talented early-20-somethings fresh out of art school who have huge potential?>or the almost 40 loser with zero industry experience and a shitty self-taught portfolio
>>637692>>Do I have any chance finding permanent on-site employment>hmm, should i hire one of the countless inexperienced, self-entitled early-20-somethings who believe that having gone to art school made them artists>or the almost 40 experienced worker who, by force of will, discipline, and talent, learned as much as any fresh graduate in less than half the time
>>637641>tfw 3D is shifting to more cartoony overwatch fortnite horseshittrue but only in gaming3D is much bigger than just the gaming industry
>>634502We love you anon keep your head up!
>>634502so let me know if I get it, you worked not only for your own success but also so other people would validate you, almost making you kys, later ask for validation again from old classmates who have their own life now who you judge as mediocre because they don't have same priorities as you, go back to grinding work and compare to other people again. and im somehow supposed to believe you when you say how humble you've become10/10
>>634507>should I blame myself, or my parents?>i didnt wanna go to shitty college anyway>settle for useless diploma instead of using that education money for some career that is fucking useful in the meantime you get your shit together, you could have learnt everything necessary in 3 years for a junior position, had chosen a career that will feed you and spend 1 or 2 hours daily on tutorials that you enjoywhat is wrong with you, how could you have sabotaged yourself like this
This thread is depressing. There is even a small possibility I might end up in the same place as some people here because I probably spend too much time on 3D right now, when the future in it is definitely not bright, especially in my country where there are maybe a dozen positions available (all in somewhat shitty indie studios as well).
>>634414>my scene takes about 30 minutes to open for 3ds>fiddle with it for 30 minutes>it crashes>need to wait 30 minutes to open it again>>634494>Plug in is on sale>do not need it>finally need it>not on sale anymore
>>634414>Be poorfag>Fall for the Asus meme>Buy extremely expensive (for me) laptop with Nvidia gpu>Laptop is slower than my old desk PC>For some reason the rendering takes much longer using GPU than CPU, to the point where I no longer use GPU at all>The laptop has a horrible noise, as if a there was a wire or something stuck in the fan>take it to the shop, they keep the laptop for a week, then give it back after deleting all my files and reinstalling windows>They say the laptop is fine, and the sound is normal, it's just the "thermostat">Laptop is even slower (they leave it on for 24 hours for endurance testing or something, I think that further damaged the hardware), the graphics card does nothing but using bandwidth, disk and memory all the time, even if there are no programs running>Laptop still sounds like a Harley Davidson
I'm>>637578>>637692First of all thanks for the encouragement. Secondly, this is exactly what I was pointing out in my original post. You don't understand this. These 'education institutions' are simply criminal vermin who sprout from the bottom as soon as they see anything with potential to be exploited. Nobody NEEDS a school. A school can't teach you anything you can't teach yourself. A school is merely there to put labels of pseudo-elitism in place, labels of fake privilege. If they succeed, no recruiter will look at your portfolio, but they'll look at your educational background first, which school you graduated from with which grades. These institutions need to be boycotted and destroyed at all cost, before they can tighten their grip on a field that was once beautiful in its free distribution of knowledge and expertise, as it should be.
