FFFFF YOU GUYS.:heart::heart::heart: I leave for 3 hours just to go watch Big Hero 6 with some friends in order to cheer myself up (which it did), and I come back to all of these uplifting messages in my inbox!!! :glomp: :hug: :heart: If I had just one super power, it would be able to go right through this screen to give you all a hug~ I'm feeling a bit better. :)

You're right though. I shouldn't compare myself and my progress to others. I need to just keep moving forward and just focus on my own goals. Though I do wish that I could make SOME profit with my art. <__>; Money isn't my main goal when it comes to art, I just need money in order to make art, though. It's like what Walt Disney said; he didn't make movies to make money, he made money to make movies.

I'm currently emailing this one person to apply for a job on campus so I should get an interview with her (I'll be working in an office pretty much doing filing, but hey it's a job :XD:) but I would still like to take commissions. I have only one customer, but I'll be willing to accept more. :) I understand that a great majority of my viewers are about my age if not younger, but spreading the word would really help me out. I'm serious here, this would really help me out. You could also reblog this:… Of course, you don't have to if you don't want to, I won't force ya. :P But I would greatly appreciate it!!!

One friend did tell me that I should get an Artist's Alley table at anime conventions in the future to make some monies. :U I'm considering that~ I just need to know how to make badges, stickers, and whatnot. :XD:


How can someone around my age, someone who is a Junior in college, someone who is practically in the same boat as me, MAKE OVER $35,000 A YEAR JUST BY SELLING THEIR ART ON MERCHANDISE ON ETSY? How the fuck do you do it? HOW?! My professor and a few other students in class this morning were just amazed by this girl, and I'm like :IIIII This girl is talented, yes, but OVER $35,000?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

Am I just not talented enough to sell my art and/or take commissions? Is my art that bad? This makes me feel like shit right now. I'm not even a month into school and I'm already feeling like crap about my self-esteem and my confidence in my art. It's bad enough that I have high anxiety. This makes me scared to graduate. I want to go to an animation/cartooning school and I do want to take commissions (which I'm doing right now but so far I've only had one customer) but entering the world where no one is interested in your art (let alone buying your art) yet you want to make a living off of it, it's like, what's the point? :(

Just...I can't.

I know I'm not a professional since I'm still a student, and I know I'm not the worst...but...ya know? What happened this morning in class really had me thinking about my art and what I'm planning to do with it in the future. And it worries me so much.

United States

I'm a Junior in college, an Art & Design major, and I hope to go to a good art school, like SVA.:heart:

"You need criticism. You need to accept criticism. If you can't, how will you learn? How will you improve?" -Me

"There's a difference between hating something and offering constructive criticism."- Me

"Art takes time. Unfortunately, time can be irrelevant." -My Drawing I Professor

"'What is art?' The most stupid question I've ever heard in my life!" -MrEnter [Animated Atrocities #30: Atlantis Squarepantis]

"You're dead if you only aim at kids. Adults are kids grown up anyway." -Walt Disney

"These krabs weren't from attracting mates..." (Well, these claws ain't just for attracting mates) -sailorlovesong

"A disagreement is not an attack."

"I never look back, darling, it distracts me from the now." -Edna Mode, The Incredibles.

"Good art doesn't come from focus groups and statistics. It comes from people who share how they see things in their own unique way." -The Nostalgia Critic

"Just because something is intended for younger kids doesn't give you the right not to try." -The Nostalgia Critic

"Don't you realize there is no such thing as a hero in this world?" -The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With The Sea

"Life's a piece of shit, when you look at it." -Eric Idle, Monty Python's Life of Brian

"Saying that someone who posts things on the internet deserves this kind of treatment is like saying that a bench or lamp placed in a park deserves to be vandalized. It can be expected sure; it's very hard to have a public restroom with no one 'sharpieing' profanities on the wall. But just because it can be expected, or even tolerated, doesn't mean it should be accepted." -MrEnter on cyber bullying/trolling

"To critique art, you must understand art on a technical level yourself. You have to be able to see what an artist is doing wrong and know how to explain how to do it right."

"The only way to become a better artist is to practice."

"Those who know do not speak, those who speak do not know." -Lao-Tzu

"Any idea can seem stupid, all that matters is how it's executed." -RebelTaxi

"It's called criticism. If you are going to post something you made on the internet (game, story, art, ect.) you should expect criticism, and use it to improve on the next thing you make."

"There is no right or wrong opinions"

"Don’t compare your progress to others."
