Talk about biggest lows and struggles of 3D art and your worst moments.

why do these faggots here always believe 3D is a psychodrama ? Go to /lit where all the dramaqueens and wankers are

Are you autistic?

Ughh 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 playing
Opened 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 real
At 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 ?

There'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.
>>
>>698027
Good moments: getting paid for a job
Bad 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

Do 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 it
this doesn't seem plausible
why 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
>>
>>698057
it 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.
>>
>>698056

No 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.
>>
>>698060
Why?
>>
>>698076
as 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
>>
>>698051
Happens 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".
>>
>>698027
Data 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.
>>
>>698061
Apply for his job then, faggot.

>>698066
RSS feed or something maybe.
