Is 21 too old to get into 3d modeling
>>
Stop with stupid questions, it’s not.
>>
>>903471
No
>T. 22 yo who started a year ago
>>
No not at all- Do you have any background with art? I began learning 3d around 21
>26 now
>>
>>903471
>Starting after your grey matter fully matures.
You never stood a chance.
t. Started at 5 months old
>>
You only have a chance if your parents raised you with 3D practices everyday.
>>
>>903471
Yes.
t. 25 yo who started a year ago
It should also be mentioned that I'm a NEET so I have all the free time in the world, but you probably can make it even if you're a wagie if you're passionate enough.

>he thinks 3dcg is like labor-intensive jobs, where age actually means something
You're fine anon. As long as you're good with following instructions and having creativity, you should have no age-related disadvantage while looking for work. It probably won't be until you're much older (50+) that potentially impairing cognitive functions would put you at a disadvantage anyway.

Started at 29 because I wanted to sculpt miniatures. Two years later it's going well. You'll do fine kid, just don't be a bitch about it.
>>
>>903471
I think 3d is one of the easiest art forms to pick up as an adult, learning drawing might be a nightmare but 3d modeling is more technical
>>
Bros I'm 32... where do I pirate Maya?
>>
>>903628
just send photo of fake ISIC with your name and current year to Autodesk and you can get it for free
>>
>>903471
It is.
> t. 22
No matter what I do, I always stumble in the shortcut steps, or just forget them at the most inopportune moment.
At this point 3D is like a hobby, but not a job; if you can't do it from the start, you can't do it at all.
>>
>>903471
No, im 27 working a shit job, I'm learning now with my spare time.
It's only too late when you're too old to move your hands
>>
>>903471
Fuck you, dude. I'm only just now getting into it at 32. No one fucking cares. I used to curse myself for only getting into classical drawing at 18. I only started learning mathematics at 25 at a 6th grade level and just powered all the way through Calc 3. It's a waste of time and energy to worry about bullshit like that, things over which you have no control. Don't waste even one more second worrying about your age.

post work goo goo ga ga

Yes it is. If you aren't working in the industry by the age of 10, you'll never make it.

Started at 27, best decision I made and actually lost 6 years thinking I was too old at 21 and same for the years that followed.
>>
>>903471
No, it doesn't matter what age you start, it only matters how fast you can accumulate about 3000 hours of practice
>>

Dont listen to this blender shill. Nobody will hire a pure blender user. Even if you don't want a job you have the flexibility because you know maya and the blendlet doesn't. Think about how much time you are saving the company by knowing Maya right off the bat.
>>
>>903766
you dont "know" maya until you are ready, willing, and able to create new nodes for it with its c++ and python APIs
>>
>>903766
And nobody will hire a Mayafag who can't model or sculpt.
From a beginner level, you have a lot more work ahead of you before you should even begin worrying about one software package over another. Blender is fine for learning.
>>
>>903471
yes, unless you start at 10 you might as well not bother
>>
Yes
>>
>>903471
I hope not because I recently got into sculpting at 40, after I started obsessively watching sculpting vids on YouTube during lockdowns.
From age 10-30 I wanted to draw comics and a year of sculpting taught me more about drawing than drawing itself ever did.

You have to be ready from the moment you leave the womb. If you haven't learnt what parallax mapping is by age 3, NGMI.
>>
>>903471
You'll ask this question again in 9 years when you turn 30
>>
>>903471
With that attitude? yes. I know a grandma who learns programming at 60. compared to that, 3D learning is very user friendly. just do it kid.
>>
>>903471
It is not. Start now.
>>
>>903471
Like half of the industry is made up of late bloomers, stop asking this moronic question and get back to work.
