I’ve been listening to a lot of tutorials as of late on the video game industry and illustration. There seems to be a lot of pressure put on students and young professionals to climb the ladder and get paid $100k+ , be super famous, be better than everyone else, and get all the jobs you want without raising a finger.
You can do that. If you want to paint 20+ hours every day, learn every program under the sun, and crunch for 8 months straight at your job for good pay.
But at a certain point, you realize that killing yourself to be the best at something is one of the most unhealthy things you can do to yourself. It’s ok to learn at the pace you’re comfortable with. It’s ok to not be paid a ton of money when you first start out. You may have to take shitty jobs that have poor pay. But they may not be shitty to you. It’s all about you and what is good for you.
Building a career consists of stepping stones. Not fucking bottle rockets. Worry about progressing, but worry more about whether or not you’re enjoying your life at the same time.
