Hi, I’ve recently discovered a passion 3d modeling/animation (leaning more towards modeling) I am pretty young, at 17. I never really took an interest to anything. I recently just looked at timelapses, examples, reels, of all sorts of 3d models/animations and was just completely fascinated, I was completely blown away and decided I wanted to do this. I want to learn and do even greater things
So one of the first things I did was look into 3d modeling software, looked in numerous places on the web, and Blender was mentioned quite a few times, so I checked it out, downloaded it, played around, watches some tutorials and followed along. Watched some basic tutorials, noticed I picked up on 80% of the things by just following along previous tutorials that involved modelings random objects, but I managed to learn a few useful things that I imagine will be quite useful, got my feet wet with a first taste of animation.
I have to say, never have I really enjoyed the learning process of anything like I am with this. I truely believe this is a passion that will only grow and develop
But alas I realized something, I don’t really have a clue about…well anything. I just need someone to give me a sense of direction. I don’t really know how to go about this path. I would appreciate anyone to share their personal experience and any advice. I’m not sure how I should go about…turning this into a career. (I imagine something like modeling characters from concept art to be in video games, or something. Like I said I am pretty much as clueless as they come, but eager to learn. I have been sticking my noises in quite a few places, researching topics on this matter, but felt I wasn’t really getting at anything so I decided to directly ask, and hope this is a suitable place for such a question)
Many thanks in advances.
