Talk about biggest lows and struggles of 3D art and your worst moments.
>>698027why do these faggots here always believe 3D is a psychodrama ? Go to /lit where all the dramaqueens and wankers are
>>698030Are you autistic?
>>698030based as fuck
>>698027Ughh so this morning my damn verts just weren't aligning while doing some UVs, then, when I tried to do a test render, maya just crashed and all those verts were lost like tears in rain.I restart maya and try to do some animating instead, but the damn transform values keep getting stuck on the wrong keys. Needless to say, my soul was crushed.I give up maya for the day and go to substance painter to do some texturing, only to see that I forgot to group the grunge masks I did yesterday and now they are all mixed up.>hello darkness my old friend.jpg starts playingOpened ZBrush to finish the anime girl I was working on only to find that now matter how hard I try, I can't get the hair to look as good as the guy in the tutorial makes it look.>the struggle is realAt this point I just feel comatosed to say the least and I'm contemplating the worst, why does life of a 3D artist have to be so difficult, tiring, ungrateful and unfair bros ?
>>698027There's nothing you struggle in 3D outside actually making a living with it and having a life long career. That's pretty much all of it. That's the struggle.
>>698027Good moments: getting paid for a jobBad moments: "oh anon you do 3d too??? what version of blender do you use?"
When someone unfollows you or unlikes your artwork on artstation for some unknown reason.
ok here w go>be me>5 years ago>actively learning blender and making some cool stuff with it>Imgettinggoodatthis.jpg>fast forward today>passion for 3d modeling never stagnated>am pretty capable artist at this point>looking for a job for years now>befriend random guy who has nothing to do with 3d modeling>we both search for a job>he instantly lands a job at some 3d modeling agency>does not know anything about it>seems to be doing fine after 2 months>here I am, recently got fired from my job which had nothing to do with 3d>did not found anything up until today and will probably never get taken
>>698051>unfollows you or unlikes your artwork on artstationDo you get notifications when this happens? I assume not, no?
>>698053>>he instantly lands a job at some 3d modeling agency>>does not know anything about itthis doesn't seem plausiblewhy would they empoly someone they have to teach everything opposed to an experiended person
My biggest low, was me realizing that i was using blender this past 4 years, lol
my biggest mistake was not learning unity earlier
>>698057it was a position originally about software engineering, but he sucks at it so he does shitty models/scenes related to the project and still gets good money with it.
Knowing that without a lot of struggle, I will never master the technical aspects of cg production like rigging, vfx, etc.
>>698056No I just happen to notice it. I was only uploading male characters. The second I uploaded a female a few female followers unfollowed. Crazy to think that your portfolio is being watched so closely.
>>698076as long as i can remember i wanted to work in video games as a career but i avoided learning a game engine. Now other people can recreate games such as mario and sonic in unity but i still struggle because i waited so long to start learning
>>698051Happens to me too. Mainly with Instagram though rather than AS.I just chalk it up to losses from bots. There's always a big influx of followers and likes the literal second you post, then a few days later they drop off and unfollow. Just bots trying to get that follow themselves via fake ass "interaction".
>>698027Data loss.I had all those amazing characters all modeled and rigged, ready to animate... when i lost the entire HD. This was a looong time ago, but i never recovered psycologically. I learned how to make dozens of backups everywhere after that... oh, i learned the lesson all right.
>>698061Apply for his job then, faggot.
>>698066RSS feed or something maybe.
>>698368:( im sorry anon
