You have some really nice artworks in your gallery, I especially like your 3D work. Keep up the good work, I'll keep an eye on you :)

(And may I ask, are you working in 3D or is it merely a hobby?)

Thank you for your nice message :)

To answer your question: I work in the graphical field but it's mostly 2D with the odd 3D commission, so it's kind of half hobby, half professional. I love 3D but I don't like the "business" side of it. For the big money-men such as game developers creativity is not important, only the revenue that can be generated. I don't like that, so I always refuse commissions of that type. Also, most games are violent to the point of madness. I don't contribute to the corruption of young minds.
I know it sounds a little sanctimonious, but it's how I feel. The ability to create is a gift and should not be allowed to be sucked dry by the greediness of those unable to create themselves. Have you ever listened to Feng Zhu of FDZ School? It's scary the way he tries to tell youngsters that creativity is not important but rules, speed and squirming before big companies is. It makes my skin crawl. :(. I'd rather be poor and happy than poor and beaten up, because you'll never get rich being an artist, but the "elite" will get rich from your abilities if you let them.

I see, thank you for your insights! I personally decided to keep doing 3D as a hobby as well - probably due to more personal reasons but I can relate to yours. The "business" side was also what kept me from pursuing it further, i.e. deadlines and having to be creative for someone else. And someone else might have opinions or ideas which you don't agree with - then, how can you identify yourself with your work? I guess you don't have to (as the arts school you're talking about seems to suggest) but for me that wouldn't work. I like to do what I do with "all I have". As cheesy as that sounds, but as someone who strives for perfectionism this is the only way I can accept my own work.
I hope that makes sense...
Does your sense of business make it more difficult to get proper jobs or are you feeling you have found your niche?

Yes, I have found my niche. I mostly work with charities now, not the big ones, I trust them as far as I can throw them, but small ones who are brimming with enthusiasm but don't have the money to spend on things like big "begging campaigns". Their go-get attitude, unbridled energy and drive to make this planet a better place is refreshing. Also, they respect your views and listen to your ideas instead of inflexibly trying to get what they want no matter what, trampling all over people's self worth in the process. So, I won't get rich but I feel good about what I do and I love the people I work with. Many have become good friends. :)

How about you? Do you feel you have found your place in the universe? Creatively, I mean.
