How long did it take for you to make a living in the 3D industry?
Hi! I would like to open a thread aimed to all 3d professionals (in any field) that make a living in this industry (in any way). Especially I would like to know how much time passed since you started your formation as artists, designers, architects, etc, I mean, not in 3d, but since you began to acquire an artistic or technical base in any field (either academically or self-taught), and the moment that you started to make a living in the 3d industry. The thing is that I have read a lot of similar threads (asking how much time needed to master 3d, etc), but I have never seen one that raises the subject this way, and because of that I would like all those who want tell your story here (a brief summary of it, of course).

PD: I would also appreciate it if you share any link to any thread very similar to this (if you know someone:-)

Hello, I'm also starting with the 3D images and I would also like to know how long it takes to defend and master the 3D. I have asked many people before and no one knows how to give me some information.

I'm not a professional artist myself, but if you attend a university course or private school, often that knowledge and the connections you get there should be enough to be able to land a Junior position in the industry. Of course that depends on how much work you yourself put into learning and improving.
I think there's a general rule that it takes a human about 10000 hours to master a skill like 3D art.
So, depending on how much time you can put into learning and improving, anywhere from 1year to 99years is possible. I think 3-5 years of personal studying would be a good timeframe to shoot for, if you don't have access to a university/school and are working some daytime job.
