I see a lovely drawing (keep it up, It's very pretty~!) but very out of touch with life quote XD I was pretty much same when I was Younger but once You hit 20+ and have to make living out of art, and draw things You'd never expect to draw (and not even enjoy) and/or have really small time left for drawing things You REALLY enjoy this kinda changes. Unless You win lottery and dont have to bother about survivg on Your own in this wild world haha XD<3 You're young still so Untill that sad crash with reality comes, enjoy It with every moment, If I could turn back time I'd surely enjoy it more Fav still for really optimistic way of being, which I'm often lacking in cold adult world haha.
Sorry It sent itself before I could finish OTL. Quote stated that popularity and money are less important than expressing yourself in art, and by self experience I am aware that not becoming known enough to find clients to get a job wouldnt keep me alive for long so I just stated my opinion on that To actually be able to express yourself in art at an adult age, first you must whore yourself out for companies and make mainstream crap, make lots of money, and once you dont care about earthbound things like "what can I afford to eat tommorow" you can spend rest of your life by expressing yourself XD And by the way , I never said It's wrong or anything, I just said It's out of touch with real life. Unless expressive art makes money, or it's a side hobby, then I dont see a problem ;D
I know most people are saying stuff about the quote and all, which it's true. But I just have to say, I absolutely love how that drawing came out. I'm usually no big on anthros, but that turned out fricke adorable
Feelings about being poor and unpopular? Unfortunately feelings aren't gonna pay your way in this world. For some people on this site, their only talent is art which means they need to be popular so they can earn money :/
There's more to it than the common fanciful phrase presented yes. For you it's relaxing or just to occupy time. For many it's fun to see their ideas turn out, and for me for example, I like the idea of making others happy with it the most. It sounds sappy but it's true, when it comes to drawing for myself I don't even feel like it has a point, mainly because I already see the concept with my mind's eye.
