Is Competition In The Animation Field Low or High?
I don't know much about the competition level of animation and I'd love to learn more.
Competition is high, yet there is a place for those that keep at it no matter their level. The key is to learn as much as you can so that you grow as along with the industry. Good luck
Animation is very competitive because there are many talented animators. If you want to aim high get a degree specifically in animation. Make sure to also broaden your talent and draw different types of animation so your versatile. I think that's how you can be different than other animators because sometimes they have certain ways of drawing. Good luck to you.
Arielle recommends the following next steps:
If there were a pecking order, animator-designers have the best opportunity to pick and choose the opportunities that best suit their interests. Animators who are tech geniuses are probably next in line with designers who don't have animation skills right behind them. Either way, what the world needs most is an individual who can create a variety of visual solutions and then animate them on as many systems/software bases as possible. Hone your talents and sharpen your skills.
