>>638823I have -$100 in my account, haven't eaten in 3 days and live in my car (which has no fuel). I also owe like $35000 lmao
>>638822Do you want to work with me on a project? It could make us both very rich.I need a good 3D modeler to make some mockups and eventually 3D models for the game.It is an adult game and will be on Patreon. Adult games on Patreon make thousands a month easily. Additionally, the game fills a large niche with no existing good games and I think it will be very popular.Please message me on discord for more information.lilly#1406
>>638877>adult gamesWould rather starve desu
>>638877>lillyare you girl or girl (male)
>>638877What do you bring to the table?
>>639080I bring you very creative ideas.
>>639089Being a 3D content creator, I already have plenty of those, more than I have time to do in fact. Anything else?
>>639091I'm a girl
>>639100Sorry, that doesn't pay my bills.
>>639100>I'm a girlFucking gottem. Might do it if you promise to let Sigmar bless your ravaged body tho.
>>639100Can we have sex as payment?
>>638830>only joy I have left.Me too, fren. Me too..
>>639100fuck off thot, you are doing us all a disservice waving your tits around and upholding a stereotypeyou need to work twice as hard to match average dude in this field. that is a cold fact.
>>638822>they didn't drop out after first year to get an actual jobretard
>>638822At least you got a career. I did small 3d jobs but was never able to get into the industry permantly.I'm 33. Been 10 years since I graduated.
>>639368I'm 28 and officially give up on 3D.I tried so hard, but I have a mental block of some kind, my passion decreased year upon year, especially knowing you have to work like a slave for shit pay when you do break in.I just can't handle this 'dream' anymore, it's stifling me. Besides, I know what's important in life now, spending time with my family rather than sitting on a computer is a joy I can't express in words.My only regret is I didn't realize this years ago, now I'm poor and way underperforming for someone my age.
>>639404>I just can't handle this 'dream' anymoreLiterally since I was a kid, I've always wanted to be an animator. Then reboot and transformers beastwars and those shows came out and I wanted to do 3d. That's all I wanted to do ever since.Sadly, my passion hasn't dies, and that's what's taking so long for me to let go. Not cartoons specifically, but videogame, and browsing sites like artstation, pinterest are a wealth of inspiration. A wealth of inspiration for an industry which I'll never be a part of.

First kid is due December. I literally feel all I've hoped and dreamed of becoming is just a childish dream. I need to "get real".
>>639417>I literally feel all I've hoped and dreamed of becoming is just a childish dream. I need to "get real".You're so right. It's was such a mistake for my parents to let me do whatever I wanted and "follow my passion". What a goddamn meme. I don't even like video games anymore, my idea of a comfy time is reading a good book or playing with my daughter.I have the 'talent', but I cannot muster the dedication or commitment, a day working on 3d drains me of energy when for other people it fills them with vitality, I claim to love it but it's clear I've been lying to myself.>Sunk Cost Fallacy: The more you invest in something the harder it becomes to abandon it.
the industry is shit anyway. back in the 90's you could easily make 300k a year. Now because of the diploma mills pumping out red state millennials the wages are almost at minimum wage levels. You don't get any benefits now, you are hired for a week and fired for three till the next project. Its gay. You are all gay too for being such cucked pussies when they promise to give you a credit for work, or pay you minimum wage with the promise of "exposure" and stuff for your "demo reel". You have ruined my beautiful 3D Industry you millennials.
at least im still making 120k while the millennial sitting next to me is making 35k..... Ill retire in maybe 10 years and be ok. But you should get out of this industry if you are a millennial while you still can. or grow some balls.
>>640335Are you getting senile old man?Sure the millennials are at fault for all the outsourcing to shitholes like india. The millennials are at fault for turbo capitalism, like they are at fault for Hollywood's bidding downward spiral, and the fact that the video games industry makes billions with microtransactions but pays very little in exchange for the artists who create this stuff...You are a fucking projecting idiot. Its the fault of your generation for creating the circumstances which have lead to this situation. And what the fuck are you even whining about...? You are fine and can move your pity boomer ass into retirement while you leave the house in a shitty state. Thanks for that grandpa, now die fast and make room for us you piece of shit.
>>640336Yeah, and the millennial next to you is probably better than you at your job already. It sucks because he's not aware of it, so his boomer bosses can leech off of his talent and your boomer ass can still sit at a desk with your dick in hand raking in money you don't even work for. But there is one thing that millennials are at fault for though. There definitely still are talented individuals who show true interest and commitment to their work among new blood. But they've been drowned by the influx of retards of the same age group who only wish to get into the industry for social media likes. Everyone wants to have Venom or Avengers or Star Wars or The Last of Us on their profile to boast with their friends about it but very few do it out of curiosity and to get a glimpse of the tech and the creative process behind them. Everyone wants to be a fucking artist, but nobody wants to put in the effort. So you have this huge amount of shitty artists who barely know how to hold a pencil and demand to design a Marvel character, get paid a shitton of money, become famous and retire early. Nobody manages to do it, obviously, but still it is means that those that could have to basically dig their way out of a mound of shit in order to stand out. Every employer understandably assumes that they are yet another shitter so they have to prove that they're not. And it's hard for capable artists to claim that they're better than everyone else, because capable artists are known to not be egotistical fucks, or they wouldn't be capable artists.So the positions get filled by shitty artists because the companies were desperate to fill it and the only ones who applied were shitters. They train the shitter into yet another monkey and pay him shit wages. So when the capable artist comes in he gets paid shit wages too. But guess who coddled the shitters into believing they're super duper fucking special snowflakes? Their shitty boomer parents, that's who.
>>639404>>639368why dont you guys do something like animation or video game assets if you are good at modelling? I can see even biggest losers earn lots of money doing that
>>640343>>640402This 100%. Boomers the biggest scum generation that ever lived and need to die in labor camps.>>639404>>639417>>639420I'm pretty much the opposite of you guys. Just turned 34, have 3 useless degrees and currently doing a useless PhD, all because I listened to my delusional boomer parents and was naive enough trying to fit a role in their conception of the world. (the world as it was in THEIR time) Was heavy into digital art back in the early 2000s, but put it aside to focus on 'education'. Proved I spent the last 10 years wasting my time accumulating worthless pieces of paper that say: "I'm more privileged than you.", which may have been the shit back in boomer days, but now is an absolute meme. I learned nothing. I acquired no skill. I have no experience. I wasted my youth.I'm at a point now where I completely gave up on this shit. I'm writing my retarded PhD thesis and on the side learn 3D. I want to create a somewhat respectable portfolio in the coming 2 or 3 years. Once my PhD is done, I want to apply just ANYWHERE and try to get a job, not caring how much it pays or where it is. I could work in an outsourcing cubicle shithole in China for all I care. If it works out, fine. If not, I'll just work full time filling shelves at the nearest super market and continue 3D as a hobby and keep trying.After all,... that's the only thing that makes sense. Keep trying. We'll all die anyway, so why not try to do things that give you fulfillment.
Here's a surefire shortcut to depression: make your passion your job.
>>642634>not having multiple passions
>>642652What do you suggest? Studying two or three degrees at the same time, just in case?
>>638822me too, but never landed a job
>>638822fucking retards, seriously buying an art degree.... what did you expect, going to school for something you could learn entirely by yourself at home. >falling for the "do what you love" memea job is a job, if you're not working on something that's entirely your creation and making the lions-share of the profit, its always going to be shitty slave labor. you should have gotten a real job degree, then learned 3D on the side, releasing your own projects and assets for extra money.
>>638830NOW HIRING PRO PEPE POSTERS APPLY NOW
>>639404>for shit payI make 55 an hour doing 3d, all you millennial faggots dont know what you are worth and you are bringing this industry down fuck you
>>642795>8/hour to be a Character TD on Marvelshit movies>then fill in as Pipeline TD/RnD programmer>can also sculpt and generally be better at art than the actual artists. Hey boomertard, how do I explain to my HoD that he needs to stop paying your lazy old ass money you don't deserve and start paying me 500k/year like I ought to?
>>642799>500k a year for pixels on a screenok
>>642799>we know you want to work on our capeshit so much that you will work for burger flipping money>yes massa!>we promise it will lead to more pay and better opportunities>thankyou massa!>thanks for all those weekends and unpaid overtime now GTFO we are going to hire more interns to replace you>why boss why!?? I trusted you!!!!>fuck off zoomer!
>>642800Pixels on a screen that earn billions. Lol. People out there earn more for uglier pixels that nobody in their right mind would pay attention to, and yet.
>>642795I so agree with this opinion. Industry veterans have been complaining about this shit openly online since 2002 when CA started the craze. Everyone wants to work in this industry, and I hate that it got so popular with shit people, no passion, or business sense. Or, too much business sense, and shit art. I just took some Acid and am tripppping~ love you all, but please put skill and art above making money while still knowing what you're worth.
>>640335Fuckin' A. I love this stuff, and got into it right when diploma mills started coming about. So many hacks it's producing.
>>638876Just fucking file for bankruptcy
>>640335Well this wins the award for bullshit, industry is shit because of chinks and pajeet under cutting everyone
