personally I think if I wanted to seriously pursue art as a career I would have to go to school for it, just because that's a helpful environment for me
graduating from cal arts is also apparently a good way to have a stable career in art lol


maybe I'll go back to school next year

Wdym by this? Just bc he doesn't think it's very viable as a career doesn't mean he doesn't care for the artists..
I don't when he said like "Adult animation shouldn't exist." I guess it be more accurate that I get the feeling he doesn't give two ****s about animation and in turn the artists.
Maybe he does care I won't speak for him but that's the vibe I get personally.
who knows maybe he adores'em, would hug'em on sight.

my art is being passable at dark souls

not even good because I still die a lot
just passable
you can set up a twitch stream and guilt people into donating because DARK SOULS IS MUH PASSION!!!11!

speaking of which that's another thing that annoys me, people who assume they can and will and should make a living off of twitch/ youtube etc
 
you know, receiving art from friends means way more to me than finding cool art online

as far as like, the value of the artist goes, i think having artist friends really does help in like understanding like the heart that goes into the art because like... its differnet when you know the person. i cant really put into words exactly why. but even if its not something we think about in the scope of art consumerism, i think experinecing having made art or having someone personally make a piece of art for you, that's sort of like the foot in the door to understanding the overlooked layer of creators not just being an assembly line of creativity

It's one of many reasons artists do what they do for art itself, not necessarily because they're gonna make a lucrative living.

Like I said, if we artists had any sense of business and finance, we'd be pursuing a career in finance, lol.

Heck, about all I can do for budgeting is making sure rent, car, insurance, water, and groceries are taken care of, then anything else goes into tools of my trade (music), and then anything after that is just play money.

Definitely not the best with finances. Thank God my wife loves accounting, business, and stuff. Got her MBA.
