Okay let’s talk about money, I am going to give you the average salaries of CG artists working in the industry. Before we start diving into details I want to clarify that these numbers are from www.GlassDoor.com, Game Developer Magazine’s annual salary survey, and the experience of artists working in the film and game development industry.
So, in today’s video, you will have a general idea of How Much do 3D Artists make, which will give you the ability to know what to expect from this field that you have chosen for your career.
Of course the more work you do the more experience you are going to get, as a result, your value increases and you will be paid more.
For example, a junior artist is not going to get paid like a senior or a lead artist would.
There are other factors that can play a role in how much artists are paid, such as the studio or the company they are working at and their Ability to specialize just to name a few.
Now lets take a look at the numbers.
