My eyes were recently opened to the truth of life, I wanted to be an animator. You know live the dream of having fun and getting paid really well, but one blender user opened my eyes and said it s not really like that.
“But by and large, if you want to make money, then don’t be an animator. Don’t be an artist at all. Artists do not make money. Yeah, some of them make it big and get to start their own massive website or end up designing the bad-guys for the big sci-fi movies and stuff. Those guys make up about 1% of all the artists currently working, and all of the currently working artists probably make up about 5% of the total number of artists competing for jobs. It’s not really the sort of career you get into to make money with. A lot of artists actually hold down other types of careers and just do art jobs on the side as freelancers. That’s probably the smartest way to go about it, and I’ve been considering doing something like that myself, since I already have a job outside the art field.”
Before i got started in all of the cg,blender, and animation i wanted to do something involving computers. something high paying.Any ideas
(I will never give up animating though i probably freelance just for the fun of it on my spare time
