I’m from Portugal, to make a good degree I have to go outside my country, and I think for work as animator too. We are only 11 million citizens here, and we don’t have the sources in 3D that other countries have, like Spain, France, UK, USA…
So, the money is a little of a problem, if make the decision to go study outside I have to work there and study at same time, in graphic design (other problem is I don’t have experience in this area outside of school, I had 2/3 clients but nothing really important), or other kind of job that can help me pay my life there.
I thinked in online courses, but if have questions, who I’m gonna ask?
I have a degree of Graphic Designer, but if I’m gonna ask a job with good works, what they gonna tell me? Maybe, “you are not an animator, you are a designer”?
That’s my fear, fear to get in a master too and don’t have the “bases” to finish there with good jobs, like I said , I don’t have experience with storyboarding, sound design and I know that in degrees they cover all that (if I’m not wrong).
My passion is animation, “modeling” in Maya and animate there, Maya in Gereal. When I worked with Maya that pushed me, push me to go find new things, how to do this, how to do that, how can I do what I want, search search…
In zbrush, I liked but don’t felt the same thing, don’t pushed me like Maya. (I have one character here on my portfolio that I modeled in zbrush and rendered in Maya, and have one diorama that beginned in Maya, zbruzh and Maya again make water animation/close/open doors, that kind of things.
I’m a little lost on what is better to choose.
