Hi… I havent looked around much here but I plan to. Ive been interested in becoming a 3d animator for awhile but I havent done much work… Im now looking into going to school for it.
I just wanted a better idea of what kind of artist you have to be to be able to survive in the industry.
If I were to become a 3d animator the first thing that comes to mind is trying to find a new style with the medium. I have a sense of what I want my art to look like but is this something that would get in the way of enjoying the work Ill be doing? I just get the feeling that the animators job is to make something look as life like as possible, and that there is another artist that gets to choose the style/feel of the project.
I guess what Im saying is that I want the freedom to be both when I choose. Im the type of artist that appreciates a lot of “weird” art that doesnt try to imitate reality as much as possible. And Im just worried that Ill be forced to be something Im not… although I can tolerate it at a point if it means Ill have the skills to do my own projects.
idk am I rambling?
