It always astounds me in the realm of software how people can drop money on a product thinking it superior just because it has a ridiculous price tag. I started on a personal learning edition of Maya, the industry standard 3D modelling suite. It came with Unreal Tournament 2004 and I quickly realized I could do far more than make simple models for games with it. When the open source software Blender 3D, (Open Source, which means totally free and open to the community to even commercialize production without a license) was presented to me, I laughed my head off and foolishly ignored it. It had a weird learning curve, it was free, it couldn't possibly match the $9000 industry standard right? Wrong!

Would you rather pay $9k for a pencil, or take the free one that is actually more stable because a gigantic global community of poor folk like you and me are constantly all in updating and working on it? The art comes from within, the gear you're using is superficial nonsense. It soon became apparent that Photoshop was a rip off as well, Gimp suited all my needs. I didn't need the best recording software, Audacity matched them blow for blow. And that my friends is common sense. The art is coming from within you, you don't have to drop thousands on a "gimped" product, the name brands like Apple or Alienware. Maybe you feel it makes you more creative just due to the flashy chassis and brand, but it's all in your head. A cleverly programmed placebo, a sugar pill marketing scheme. No one cares what gear you used or what program you rendered on, they're more interested in your final product. Get thrifty, and let the art flow!
