Currently I am a student studying cg and traditional art. when I first started going to school working in the industry doing 3d was all I Wanted. now my views are changing on that, yes I want to work in the industry and create stuff, but it is more along the lines so I can acquire a name in the industry and then move onto freelance and become a teacher. I am also moving more towards traditional art then 3d.
so my question for you guys is what the pay/hours/lifestyle, etc is like as a teacher of traditional or cg art? do you have to do alot of freelance to get by? or is freelancing just a added little bonus to the wallet?
Im just kind of testing the waters right now for I am unsure what part of this art industry I really want to go into. I love art and I know this is all I could do in my life, but finding the part of it where I can balance a healthy, and social life is what worries me I Guess.
