any reason why you ask in the modelling forum? you are a modeller or texture artist too? nice. industry sounds pretty aweful imho tho. it still fun jobs. now i guess most peops here are probably just hobbyists or can’t talk about work. i can’t talk for them. but since nobody repsonds i could say that. i’m more or less too.
how to get into it? just interest. and i had not a choice after highschool but to take further technical education. been always messing with computer graphics anyway. so guess what… i choose a course. programming. how to make those graphics or games.
i got no big projects. doing whatever is up for a day. bunch of blah i mess with. i got basics (not basic) in school/college. the rest is self thought and studying technical documents to get stuff on the screen. depuzzled examples. somewhen xsi popped up doing hl2. tryna model. bad. watched some videos. read wikis. just try things. if it breaks redo it. messing with and up alot of stuff ever since. and i’ve never spend more then just my internet fees for that lil ‘knowledge’ and tools.
also… a possible target it’s not frustrating. dontcha think?!? ofc only works without pressure or pre$$ure.
so… that’s my general blah…
