How does someone make money from this stuff?
Not maya, im thinking Blender instead. Also photoshop skills and after effects.

Seriously, 3D art seems to be the absolute go to for desperate people right now

Patreon with porn. Just get game characters and make them have sex.

>> No.732561

Yea, skip learning, steal some rigged models (google those 2 words), steal props, slap together a scene, animate, get money. Will only work out if you're a third worlder tho, I wouldn't expect more than $300 a month without really going at it.
Well at least they know they're too stupid to learn to code. Math was hard at school...

Seriously, what do you need math for? I majored in mathematics but I have yet to use any of it for coding (and I'd love to desu)

Hint: you make more money by making tools than you ever will from the artwork itself

>> No.732832

hint: thats not true.
Doing commision work, making 3d art for clients will always be more profitable.

>> No.732833

Hint: Passive income > freelance wagecucking

>> No.732834

hint: bit of work, that no one can copy, guaranteed payout > anyone can pirate your 'addons'

Any maya, zbrush, blender, max, addons that I see out there are ALL free, or can be pirated, excluding major addons that have a big team behind them.

>> No.732835


>> No.732935

Better hint
passive income + freelance wagecucking

Steady income from sales, boosts in income from commissions, plenty of free time to add to the library of work for passive income. If you ever get tired of freelance, you could try to find an actual wagecuck job and still have money rolling in.

>> No.733198

not so easy to pirate stuff like that without getting viruses and keyloggers on your system, so unless you are just doing that for hobby work its pointless, pirating all of those add ons will just compromise your personal information if you are using any of that for sales of your 3d projects.

>> No.733349

>not so easy to pirate stuff like that without getting viruses and keyloggers on your system,
you have the same amount of risk download pirated media of any torrenting website.

I am making 6k clean a month by doing daylies tier shit with c4d and octane. Maybe stopping doing 3d porn, lame videogame assets and ponies like everyone else in this board? That would be a start.

>> No.733678

I just got started. Havent done shit yet. What are you doing to bring in 6k?

>> No.733681

yeah you do but i figure most people arent doing that on a computer they use their credit card and shit on- whats the point of having all of those tools if you cant make money off of any of it because its all on a compromised computer?

>> No.733687

Okay dude, we get it, you're hyper spooked and paranoid about getting viruses like it's 2005 or some shit. Do you really have to mention it in every thread? How hard is it to not browse the internet like you're a 14 year old girl desperately looking for rips of the latest Taylor Swift album on shady as fuck sites?

>> No.733702

I pretty much go to behance and see whats the flavor of the month. Then try to do stuff that would fit the aesthetic without plagiarizing shit. Usually the difficulty level is low, and I actually animate the stuff, which makes me highly employable since they use it for mobile phone promotion shit all the time and a lot of 3d people does not do it. No pixar shit, no rigging characters, just simple animation and the occasional dynamics simulation. I am legit bad at c4d you see, I just use relatively basic parts of the software, probably what helped me the most is having interest in graphic design and knowing a little bit of after effects so I can serve usable files without needing any middlemen. Having a render engine that lets you see what the fuck are you doing in real time is a huge plus to productivity, too.

>> No.734715

find someone with a dream, who needs your skill set to make it a reality. work together, play together, fight together, cry together. find your purpose in them and let them open them-self completely to you. be open to new ideas. work to understand and grow your own reasons for working with them past financial success, into a realm of collaboration compassion and co-creation, making their dream your dream, and dreaming together.

I am employed in a medium sized company. I did freelancing some years before, there was plenty of work, but very little in terms of money so I don't do that anymore. Not saying freelancing is bad or anything, but it did not work well for me.

The problem is old viruses just made a windows install a pain in the ass to use, so reformat, there were the odd brick the firmware ones, but most just stopped windows from working.

modern ones encrypt your files for ransom and unless you go full paranoid and work inside 2 vm's because a fun thing about the modern viruses, sophisticated ones know its in a vm and don't trigger, or are able to escape the vm, so far none have escaped 2 vms, but still.

then if you have a bounty program you could efficiently sue people who use it pirated, granted this is corporate level and any cooperation in a modern country pirating is asking to get fucked.

but lets be honest, a 20-200$ plugin that does something useful and does it well will net you WELL the fuck over commission prices.

>> No.737066

It works out good for you.

If you can post shit you have done, and show you can do what they are asking, then you are good to go for commissions. charge minimum wage up front for time investment, and charge the remainder at the end. depending on whos commissioning and how much they have to spend and you own skill, you could get 2-3 months of money in one go or a stead income on smaller faster things.

if you are willing to go really degenerate you you can get people who will spend anything to have their... tastes fulfilled.

I guess you're never too old to start working in the industry. Goodluck I guess.

Couldn't tell you what he does, but my friend is currently taking his 3rd online dif eq class because he needs to understand it better for the program he's making. Not sure what he's doing, but I know it involves training bots.

>> No.741906

You don't for most things. You'll only need maths for things like physics engines.

Even for data science there's lots of pre built functions so you barely need maths there unless you're on the front line designing those functions. Most data scientists are more like engineers rather than scientists.
