So, being a video game creator isn’t beneficial, therefore non fulfilling. But we still play them a lot and love them, but since they don’t help why should it be a job?Oh whoop de doo, you've got warm fuzzies from a fulfilling job, good for you. Is anyone else benefitting from your job in a way they couldn't get anywhere else? People can get entertainment from people that don't do it for their job. Same can't be said for stuff like medical care, plumbing, farming, etc...
i'd just like to addSame can't be said for stuff like medical care
It can be a real job, but it's a very hard one to actually succeed inHow is art entertainment overrated?
It’s a real job
Is me wanting to be an artist for my job not fulfilling? Is being a musician or author as your main job not fulfilling?
Ok maybe I wasn't clear, I was saying that if you want medical care it HAS to be from a professional, wheras entertainment products do not have to be professionally producedi'd just like to add
my sister would disagree
who spent an entire month in tears over not matching for residency because urology was the most competitive this year it ever has been and nothing she brought to the table made her stand out among 700 some other residents
I think you're more on the money than I am, too many people try too hard to make it in art instead of a more traditional job so it just gets oversaturated and I see that and invalidate the whole thingIt can be a real job, but it's a very hard one to actually succeed in
Personally can't help but scoff at people who think they're entitled to a whole career in art just because they can draw, I've seen so many comic pages saying stuff like "tip my Kofi, artists need to eat too!!!" Or "please subscribe to my patreon so I can make a living off of these comics!! Isn't it so SAD how these don't pay my bills???" And I'm like. Dawg just cus you draw stick figure comics with punchlines like "you're telling me SHRIMP fried this rice???" doesn't mean you shouldn't have to work like the rest of us
So many people have this weird idea that they should inherently get rewarded for their art, like, unless it's a commission for someone you aren't entitled to something in return, and I find it kind of cringe when people complain that (non commissioned) art doesn't make them money or get them popular, cus if you're creating art the purpose is usually to have fun and express your own feelings
when you turn 16 you can get an easy going part time job at a movie theater or crafts store or somethingI want my art to not just be stick figures. I want to do it for people as they requested and to share a bit of myself, what I like, etc.
I’m gonna have to start making my own money soon and doing chores doesn’t make me money and parents shouldn’t give money just for doing standard housework
And you know I don’t wanna do something soul draining, because school is already like that
drawing is harder than any job I've had personallyYeah but stuff like blue collar jobs and medical professionals need specialized training. And yes, I know that art school exists but you can make quality art (Be it drawings, animations or what have you) with little to no training, soley on talent alone.
Ah, now I see what you're saying.I think you're more on the money than I am, too many people try too hard to make it in art instead of a more traditional job so it just gets oversaturated and I see that and invalidate the whole thing
Sometimes, you just have to work even if you're not enjoying it. That's life.But I don’t want a traditional job
I tried working with my mom unloading things for people before and it was draining. I hated it
I don’t think there’s a traditional job that I’d like
