Ok here is my problem. I'm student in Sofia ... and i need some job to get something to eat. But in Bulgaria 3D jobs are very hard to find there are 3 studios in all bulgaria ... so can you help me finding something via internet ? Making models paying on model or something like that ... some websites or any of this kind will be good ...

Thanks for the help mates... i'm really in bad money shape right now and searching what to eat :shakehead


p.s I'm not pro but i have some avarage skills ... so i hope there is something for my 3D skills

if its that hard to find jobs in bulgaria, try find some freelancing stuff threw the internet. another option i would do is, try get an internship at the three studios you have said about. or if you cant do that, try ask them if they know any one they can hook you up with ... worth a try

ps. if your in real desperate of money, you could always work at your local supermarket or food stores for some extra cash

only smart way to be an artist is as others explained. Get a regular job that pays you and has decent hours until you find 3D work. It takes more effort and drive and you get stuck with crappy jobs, but it keeps you fed.

just a quick notice from my side.

it took me about 1.5 years to get from regular jobs to 3D work only paying my bills. we don´t have that much options in austria here as well, but the good thing is. there are allways way too less good people out there. so if you become good at what you are doing you will be the one who can choose from job offers.

oh and btw, I came across turbo squid once too. I failed on the burocratic starting hurdles as well. try and get into a company in your country. even if that means you have to move in another city. I moved 2 times myself for a job. it payd off and I learn alot. (ah well and did I mention I earn real small money in my first 2 years? it wasn´t often enough to by food and pay my flat.) but that´s how it goes in the beginning. only the strong will survive!! and those who can live from little kebaps each day
