Haha, I know this is really late, but omg I do sooo much you have no idea. Art is my passion and I want noting more than to bring it to life with 2D animation I recently bought TV Paint 11 professional and am soo excited to get started, I've been creating and developing characters and working on a universe to put them all in Aaa I plan on doing it as a career, though I need lots more practice with animation aha, but I'm determined to do my best to achieve my dream, I may not be the best or "popular" but I have fun, and I think that's all that really matters <33
I take art/animation as my hobby seriously. I'd really rather it not be my job...
I remember when I did want it to be my job. I tried taking commissions and I had the hardest time with motivation... I can only do what I want to do, apparently. And I found that a lot of people want to rip me off. :l Not a lot of people want to pay a proper price. Or anything at all.
I did a lot of drawing as a kid then kinda lost my creative spark for decades... picked it back up again last year and find it enjoyable and therapeutic. It is a hobby... not something I would want to have stress or deadlines on.
I have plans to have an art related job, but I honestly don't take it too seriously. I mean I'm serious about art, but I try to still have fun with it. If it's too serious, it's not enjoyable. Idk, it makes sense to me.
