I keep procrastinating my work because I know I'm not good enough and won't make that face as good as I imagine it.

How do I deal with this because in all honesty I want to do it, but not to fail or even worse after spending hours not see that it doesn't look that good

Just work on it dude, the only way to get better is to fail a lot then learn and fix what went wrong.
Its better to do it now than to leave it to later
>>
>>640524
Know that practice is an investment, youre going to be glad you started today a year from now
>>
>>640524
I know the feeling OP, but as the other anons said, just work, do it and do it again untill you be proud of what you did. Takes time, but I believe on you!

Here's the thing homie. It doesn't have to be perfect to be great. If it's not set on a deadline than it ain't even finished until you're satisfied. In other words, the work you put in can be upgraded as you go. There's no such thing as a failed attempt.

You are trapped in a loop. Get out!

If you know you are not good enough you have no choice but to downgrade your end goal/ do something you can do, or something completely different.
Remember: you have to fight your way UP the pyramid, by learning, training and doing.
Doing faces perfectly from imagination is way up there.
You might see it, but your hands can't grasp it (yet).

How can I tell if I have any talent for this? I don't have a procrastination problem and am pushing through, but I always feel the pressure to learn and achieve great results in as little time as possible and that can cause stress. I also tend to compare myself with others a lot, especially those people that have been doing this for a similar amount of time.

I would look at what you want to do and then just do it.

If you want to create a certain character, just do that. If you want to do realistic faces just do that.

Then iterate in it trying to get better.

The problem is if you don't want to do something then it is painful.

Pretty much work 50-60 hours now outside of a crappy job as I focus on what I want to do.

Mostly it scheduled like this, 20 hours of programming, 20 hours of character art, 20 hours of environment art.

Then you can pick project that seem fun. What if I try to combine procedural generation with character design. Interesting project that I can pick up and work on.

People just say to mindlessly grind are stupid. You won't get anything done.

Damn op, there is a lot of truth in this thread. I hope you persevere and achieve your dreams. Good luck anon.

I've watched a ton of interviews with people working for 20 or 30 years in 3D, starting at a time when it was just an abstract concept in the 90s. They all spends loads of time with no internet, just fucking around with trial and error. Some guy said he'd spend months doing some really crappy artwork and now in 2018 he spends again months on doing some really awesome artwork. There is no difference in work load, frustration and mindfuck from day 1 to now, only the result changed.

This is the nature of the craft you've chosen. If you can't take it now, you surely won't be able to take it later on in production, when some spoiled retard constantly nags and wants the model changed.

you have to keep doing it. Its like being a pilot. Do you have 6,000 hours in the cockpit? Not yet. Someday you will, and you'll be good. Then your noob co pilot makes a mistake like pulling back on his stick while im trying to figure out why we are stalling as we and 200 passengers crash into the ocean

>youre going to be glad you started today a year from now
"I want to start modelling", "but that's hard I'm just gonna play video games today" and five years later I'm still not fucking starting. I've wasted my life.

Help

Just accept that you will make a bunch of shit while getting better and do it. If you think you don't want to do the thing right now because you're not good enough yet, do it anyway. You are allowed to come back to it when you've gotten better but you need to work to become better. It's the only way the thing in your head can ever exist.
>>
Maybe you don't like it as much as you think if you can live without it. You obviously like playing video games more and that's why you do that instead. From my experience, regret is one of the strongest forces that will push you to do it. I realized that I wasted more time on unimportant shit that I wanted to and I don't want to feel like that ever again. Stop overthinking it and start doing it immediately.

Try following some tutorials, shorter and longer ones. Be 100% handholded by them if you need to but at the end you should be able to create something awesome and hopefully that feeling will motivate you to continue.
