I have my GCSE's which I didn't think I did too well on, but I failed my 11 plus and ended up in a school I think couldn't teach me as much as I wanted.
Got 9 B to C's. You couldn't take any extra courses.
Then went to college and took a BTEC course which is equivilant to 3 A levels and got 3 distinctions. I was so proud of that result.
After that, I went to university studying animation, and realized a year in that I didn't want to do that. I'm self taught in 3D modeling, and I realized too late that animation wasn't where I wanted to be aiming.
After dropping out I taught myself more than I could have done at uni, and I'm trying to build up a portfolio, but not sure its where I want to be in the end anyway.
Here is some work I posted up in the Creative section. 3D modeling and music if you want to check it out:
Thing is, I could have swapped courses, but I didn't, and I still wonder if going back would be the best thing I could do, but money is an issue, and I don't want dept of any kind.
I was constantly told whilst doing the course that I'm too into realism and got pushed back because of that.
It was also the first time running the course, and they had no real idea how to go about it.
No one on that course, that has left with a degree, has done anything with it as far as I know, and learning myself has probably proven to be the best thing I could do, but the completion of work has been slow.
Even worse, I get down a lot because of the work I do. If I find my 3d works are progressing slow, or I'm hitting loads of problems, my mood is seriously affected.
This is partly why I think maybe going down this route as a job wouldn't be ideal for me, but the same happens with music making too if I can't come up with anything (and I don't tend to often).
Yesterday I was having such a low time, but a friend happened to ring me and cheer me up
Maybe music? *shrugs*
I guess you have to believe in yourself. It's one of the most important things I guess you can do.
Don't just think, do is another phrase I hear alot.
What qualifications do you have?
