>>652565I am slightly older than you and I also started one year ago.
>>652565I used to work with this french guy in a project for a year or so, he started art at his mid 30shttps://www.artstation.com/wootha so i wouldnt say youre too late for anything, its all about you finding the passion and dedication for the arts, of course some ppl have a headstart when it comes to that
>>652565if you really buckle down and study you can get gud enuff in like a year or two. just make sure you learn industry standard programs (maya/max, a solid renderer of your choice, substance package) and find good tutoring, like learn squared or CGMA. try not to waste your time learning blender or something dumb for 2 years
>>652565>>652591In addition to what he said, also learning a game engine is a must, most AD´s wont look at you twice if you cant prove you can make game ready assets and you know the pipeline.

But then I just fall apart, stop being social and never go to class again and end up failing.
>>657599i find the best way to pass is to simply grind example exams none stop. i don't even go through the material
>>657603The problem is I don't even make it to the exams. I usually bail out right before them and never go back to class. It's fucking weird, I usually end up becoming a complete fucking shutin at the time too, like I just don't want to deal with anyone in the world.
