Art's difficulty depends on ambition

>> No.5130627

i don't know dude
if i had support when i was younger
if i didn't spent my college studying for a job and trying to spend time with friends
if i didn't waste so much time struggling with family issues
if i was smart enough to look for the right resources and spend the money for them

maybe i would be a good artist now

>drawing during the day when there's a fuck ton of outside noise and distractions

>get discouraged and want to give up
>keep going regardless after much headache
>draw during the night when everything is quiet and no one is bothering me
>suddenly can draw anything I want with ease

So many small things can add up to hold you back, having someone to push you is incredibly valuable. I could've made it by now if I didn't have to power through these fake hurdles and learn everything for the first time on my own. Just having the right environment and resources can save you years of fuckups.

>> No.5132597

Look up the parable of 4 horses
Sometimes encountering struggle like you have makes you stronger
Dont dwell on time you supposedly wasted
It didnt sound wasted to me
It sounds like you spent it working hard at something you care about

>> No.5132643

This. Dwelling on wasted time has held me back.
Just dwelling on “oh I would be so much better if only I had spent 8 hours a day doing all these studies” is silly because you just want to be suddenly “good,” but you only get “good” if you put in the practice and work.
Frankly the truth is that if you were suddenly “good” or even a master tomorrow morning, you would still do shit with your skill and just mope around here all day.
The key is to actually draw and keep working towards it every day, little by little and sometimes by a lot. People who are “good” don’t draw all the time because they’ve “made it;” they draw all the time because that’s what they did to get to that point. They’re always making the effort.
Stop being frustrated with yourself and actually go out and do it.

im not complainign that its hard, i'm saying its actually easy once everything in your life seems to be going right for it, but you're still basically held behind people who never had to suffer as much as i did. not by choice at least

>wow never thought about that
Yeah I mean you must not have if you’re posting this defeatist bullshit
Also i don’t know a single rich person who has pursued art
Every rich person I know has been a blue collared hard worker who built their business from nothing
If you have a decent paying job then you have nothing to worry about
Just practice art consistently when you get home from work
I dont see the problem

>Also i don’t know a single rich person who has pursued art

yeah thats why. Blue collar people don't get to pursue art because they're not "meant" for it
the best we can hope for is "Just practice art consistently when you get home from work"

>> No.5133266
Quoted By: >>5133281

support is the only thing you need. There are plenty of "bad" artists that have the support of family and friends who appreciate their cute little drawings. Even if you draw well, if nobody likes your art, you'll have no reason to create it.

Quoted By: >>5133298

yeah i guess i'll just get a supportive family...

>> No.5133294
Quoted By: >>5133299

Blue collar people dont pursue art because blue collar people are practical
They dont waste their time with childish “dream jobs” like being an artist
They know it isnt lucrative and they know they could more easily achieve a substantially greater salary by pursuing something else like carpentry or welding
Do carpenters/welders sound like artsy types to you?

>> No.5133298
Quoted By: >>5133304

You dont even need support my dude
You need a better attitude and practice
Your attitude is hot garbage and everyone here has told you to improve it and you just keep whining
If you want to keep whining go ahead my dude but 5 years from now you’re going to wish you took our advice and just buckled down and worked harder
But you wont
I know your type

>> No.5133299

you think someone practical can't have dreams?
why can't someone who HAD to think practically not want to be an artist?

they don't "deserve" that

Yeah and while you were busy “not getting to draw” millions of other kids were busy “not getting to eat” so stop fucking whining about the hand you were dealt and keep working hard and improve your still-garbage attitude

what i've learned is not just life isn't fair, but there's also things you can't change no matter how hard you work for it
practical people only get to dream about stability because its always out of reach
its just a never-ending rat race
if i want to become an artist i need to risk stability while most others never had to make sacrifices that threatend their future. they always have someone to bail them out in the end

>> No.5133336

I dont know what youre saying at this point
At this point it sounds less like youre looking for advice and more like you want to bitch about things you regret being out of your control
Ive already advised you to stop doing that because its a pointless form of self-torture that does nothing but hurt your mental health, but youre still making the active decision to indulge in your self-flagellation
If thats what you want to do I cant stop you, but your mindset is hurting your progress so it would behoove you to adjust it in a positive way
Thats all I have to say
I refuse to argue with you about how unfair you think your life was while thousands of children are currently dying from cancer

>> No.5133387
Quoted By: >>5133417

Being such a repugnant self-pitying vagina will undoubtedly provide you nothing but benefits to your physical and mental wellbeing so i recommend you double down and become an even more toxic shithead

>> No.5133433
Quoted By: >>5133442

The parable is nice but doesn't apply to me, I used to spend months not drawing anything after being discouraged and had to work up the willpower to start back again over and over, all that time could've been spent drawing if I had someone to tell me these hurdles were normal and how to overcome them.

They just muffle the sound and there's still the problem of people showing up in my room or messaging me wanting me to do something, even when I know I'm going to say no, the expectation and mental preparation for it to happen takes a toll and doesn't let me focus. Drawing at night is fantastic because I know I have 5+ hours of completely uninterrupted drawing ahead of me guaranteed.

stop responding to this r9k tier thread, you fucking retards

>> No.5133442

It does apply to you though
You said it yourself, you had to push through a lack of motivation and depression in order to get yourself working
You have experienced something that a naturally energetic/driven person has not experienced
As life progresses many of these naturally driven people will encounter hardship they havent before and falter, whereas you have already experienced these things and should have learned from them
Instead though it seems that youve allowed yourself to become spiteful of the world around you
Which is unfortunate
I bet you could become an incredible artist, but with your mindset I have my doubts

>> No.5133721

if if if if if if.... if you were 4 years into the future and you spent those 4 years drawing without burning yourself out starting today you would be a much greater artist.
