Art vs Reality

Wed Oct 22, 2014, 4:05 PM
After some thinking and some real life experiences and more thinking,  I decided I would stop any attempt of studying. I decided I would only do art just as a hobby, and thus not pursue any illustration-related career for now and the next years to come. I left University, learned nothing in the process and only spent a ridiculous amount of money in that, leaving with only a distastefully large amount of debt. Art wouldn't lead me to anything good in my current and previous state of mind, and I realized that even if I do try and step up my game I won't even get where I want to. So far it's been a ridiculous pursuit, like if I was chasing an impossible dream, and I just wasn't fit for it. I wasted a lot of my time and procrastinated until I had no time left, didn't practice when I could and didn't took the opportunities that showed. Let this be a lesson to those who do have the time now to enjoy what they like and work hard to be what they want and do what they love. I wasn't good enough and wasn't responsible enough of my own self to do that, despite the cheers from friends and family alike I was too childish, irresponsible and lazy to do as I had to do, and that lead to where I am now, without a High School grade, a big unnecessary debt and working at someone's shop as a clerk for 8 hours.
Life sometimes doesn't go as someone wants, but this time, I had the materials to do my own path and I didn't work as hard as I should have to achieve what I dreamed of. It's a reality I am forced to deal with, and my plans for the next years of my life is to save money, get a house, get a car and maybe a shop for myself like my parents do. Drawing and studying don't really have a slot in them since right now I can't afford to quit a job I got only thanks to a friend of my mother. Hopefully I can study at night while working full time at this job maybe when Illustration gets more students, but that's a big maybe, who knows. I'm trying to stay realistic to the fact that I no longer have time to waste in life, and I hope that anyone who reads this understands and appreciates the time they have, and learn how to properly make use of it in a responsible way.
I'll continue working, and I'll doodle some things now and then (mostly messy things and fanarts) and I'll continue playing video games, since all I want to do in life is to play.
See you all folks some other time, stay chill, stay nice and stay pretty.

Don't know if you're still here, dear, or even if you're still in a relationship with Dance Central. I wonder if you'll be happy to know it's coming back, THIS September: www.harmonixmusic.com/games/da…

Hey there bro! Yeah I read the news and saw the video a while ago with the other DC peeps over Twitter, thanks a lot for the message though, I really appreciate it! I'm glad that Harmonix kept working with the DC franchise while working with Fantasia, and I can't wait to see more info on the matter on the next hours of E3 :heart:

aahaha oh man i think using the wacom for me it's just plain natural, think of it as drawing on the screen and you shouldn't have many problems xD try drawing penises, that's always something fun to do *hit*
