...your friends begin to worry because they haven’t seen or heard from you in days, weeks…months.
...the pubkeep at your usual hangout fears you either moved, fell of the face of the earth, or ended up in a twelve step programme.
..the kitchen in your flat/home is littered with takeout containers because you no longer have (or take) the time to cook.
...when you meet an acquaintance you haven’t seen in a while (or one of the aforementioned friends or pubkeep) and are asked what you’ve been up to, you begin to describe your latest 3D project in detail, using terms they could never hope to comprehend like subsurface scattering, specularity, IBL, UV mapping, ray depth, etc…
...you spend more on computer hardware, 3D software, plugins, and content then you do on things like clothing, your car, or your family.
