How about that~
rekindling the romance for art on Valentine's day. hahah Career first, love comes last.

I was very taken back and hurt actually by how my sisters believed that I was "indecisive" and "unmotivated". 

Oh honeys, you guys chase papers. I chase to create beauty on papers. Your goal in life and mine are two different things so I come off as "lazy" because I mainly stay indoor and do nothing but create art in front of my laptop. I enjoy what I do. One day, this will be my career where I make money off of my art. Even so, for me it won't feel like I'm "working" because I love every moment of drawing (Even if it hurts my hand, I don't care.)

Sure, realistically, I need money to live (Which I am working, not sure what they're talking about) But I also need happiness to live. If I know all the answers to life, I'd be a god. I'm still struggling to figure out how I can be happy in the end of life. The only way I won't suffer is to create art. I was just born and made for this. 

I've seen many art graduates being unemployed however. Which does frighten me. But whatever. Hahah. You can't help what you fall for.

If money was an incentive for me, I wouldn't be an artist. I'd be a doctor. A crappy one, who doesn't care for his patient. T_T If my goal in life is to create art. Isn't that what I already am doing? Unmotivated my ass.

Gosh your work is so fantastic. It's been a pleasure reading through your gallery. Your ideas are always so well portrayed, your drawing style is so emotive and wonderful, and your humor is ceaselessly amusing. I'm so happy you have the courage to continue doing what you love: drawing and creating. You have a talent for it, and others have acknowledged it as well (and they rightly should!). ^^ Your work has recently been helping me put things in perspective concerning both myself and others around me. I wanted to thank you for that. This work, especially, was a big eye-opener. 

You are a true artist. Thank you so much for posting!

Well there is 'life' that bastard yellow sadist clown, as much a liar as any clown. That hopeless claim that the safe and boring and dreary and  painful road is the sensible road is the only road. Then there is LIFE, that says that if you can put your feet on it it is a road, and that the better wealth cannot be bought or sold. I imagine he might be blue, with a shark hat.

That last line rather got to me...You die, I die. I die, you die....but, as long as the legacy is continued by someone, it doesn't matter really? I mean, the fans here all have their memory... if you died, the world that was created would still live through the fans...at least, my personal theory =w=

Being an artist is always bittersweet. 

Between fads coming and going, from super realistic drawing, to delicate surreal watercolor paintings, to drinking pain and throwing it up on a canvas. (Yes, this is a thing...still not sure if I would call it "art" but...*shrugs*)

There is also the painful reality of knowing that no one can ever truly understand an artist; I feel like artist are stuck on the other side of a smoky veil, it can be a lonely place at times.

Being an artist means putting part of your soul in your art, it's like placing yourself before the world naked. It's an attempt to show yourself. 

I think it's away to awaken emotions and ideas in others also. 

I found it hard as a child, because my parent hated my art, maybe it was because it showed how warped my "soul" was....who knows, but I do know that when my friends said they loved it, when it inspired or moved them, weather in a good or bad way...it moved something inside me; it made me feel connected to them.

Those are what matter, at least that's what I think...but what do I know; I don't know anything.

It always bugs me when people call artists lazy and unmotivated.
"Yeah, hi, how about you say that after you sell or stop buying all those comics, video games and music cds, okay? Try enjoying those without artists around."

To quote something I saw off of FB "EARTH without ART is just EH."

Jesus--that last line. 
I die you die, you die i die--that really hit me hard. 
Each of my characters really have thier own life to me--to the point where they've told me things about them instead of me deciding it (or maybe i just have intense MPD and..yeah) so... looking at that line is petrifying in such a wonderful way. 
I've thought about dissapearing a few times... and just... how can i be so selfish to take away thier lives when im the only one who can assure its there.

Gosh that's just so deep and ... Thank you for writing that. I wish you the best of luck on your dreams!!!

I saw someone make a small comic for download where paying was optional. They made the first chapter and put a prewview on dA, and then linked to where everyone could download it and he made the payment unrequired so people can type in zero dollars or 20 dollars or however much they wanted to pay for the comic. Maybe you could test that out once in a while with a comic here or there. If you want i could link you to his so you could see the site and stuff he used? oAo

GOSH SORRY FOR PARAGRAPHING YOU HAVE SO MANY COMMENTS TO READ AND I JUST KEEP MAKING THINS LONGER

and here's the link directly to the download (found in the description of the devidation--this is the english one) www.e-junkie.com/ecom/gb.php?c…

you're allowed to type in any number and it'll work. So hopefully maybe you could do some too : D

That's the spirit. The world is so distorted in the sense that some get to earn money by doing bad stuff, while others pursue their dreams with passion and earn a pittance with respect to them. I feel like ditching my 'bright' future of pursuing a well-paid job to change this.

You're not indecisive and unmotivated - you have a kind of personality that makes you function differently from others. I don't really like people who judge - sorry for that - why can't people be different? If there are more people who are as motivated as you are in Art, the world would be a better place. Really. 

Try this lol www.personalitypage.com/html/h… , hopefully you can learn more about different types of people, and be accepting of who you are. I'm an INTJ btw. Don't let the definition conform you though.
