Is every High School Student a Master of Education, after four years?
I think CubofJudahsLion is stating learning just one thing instead of a broad range of topics.
eg: if all you did in high school was learn math over the period of four years, non-stop - you’d be a mathematical genius like the top few percent of people the world (but most likely a total noob with other subjects)
However, the truth in the statement is that if you are Dedicated enough and choose to follow an endeavor that you are capable of achieving, then yes.
That much practice should/will bring you to a very high level of skill in that field.
sounds about right
you can always learn more, but there comes certain points in life when your skills plateau, and you just become faster, more efficient, and better at them :)…
does it apply to blender? well… I’ll have to disagree with that one… there’s a boatload of options that keep on expanding (seemingly expanding almost at the rate our universe is expanding) every time I look, there seems to be a new feature, eg: the node editor, sculpting mode, particle re-write, the blender-internal getting better, more scripts, FFMPEG, Grease pencil, etc
therefore, I think blender would take more time to master than the time alloted for “regular” mastery (since blender keeps on expanding) , and the needed time for mastery would increase as time goes on and more features are added.
