What challenges and obstacles are present in the journey of being a creative professional?
How do you view the difference between a "creative vocation", like a designer, artist, musician or dancer - and a vocation where creativity isn't viewed as a main tool or focal resource, like advocacy and engieneering?
Music, art and dance aren't a necessity, professions like engineering and medicine are.
Any chump can pick up a pencil/instrument etc and dick around, whereas legitimate vocations require significant specialized training to do properly. No one conducts cardiothoracic surgery as a hobby.
There is bad engineering and bad medicine but even a urinal can be considered art. Conversely, it's easy to know whether you've 'made it' as a professional in such careers. Incompetency in art can be considered subjective.
That said, there are a lot of seemingly 'non-creative vocations' that actually require plenty of creativity. Once you're heading your own lab and have designated all the grunt work to techs, PhD students and postdocs, it's all creativity at that point. We wouldn't make strides in science and technology if creative people in these fields didn't exist. I would even include design under this.
Entertainment has value, but not as much value as penicillin. One type of vocation is a luxury whose existence is dependent on the other creating a stable, comfortable, survivable life/economy/society.

Is drawing a good way to get rich? I am not thinking about photobashing or doing that kind of stuff, I mean pure, godlike skills. I know those are hard to achieve, it takes time etc. but I like to draw and I really want to get rich. I dont have anything else to make money from anyway.
can we get a picarto thread going or smth, share your streams.
I think I've burned myself out. I've drawn hundreds of boxes and constructed hundreds of heads. In short how do I get back into studying? I sit down with pencil and paper and I am blank. It hurts on the inside because my passion is there. My motivation is not.
You need a project maybe, when I get pissed off or bored of studying or struggle to pick a study topic I work on my comic or my monthly themed drawings , you should probably be 50-50 between study and finished pieces time wise otherwise why study?
I understand what you mean, I have a personal sketchbook I put drawings in. Almost like a project, perhaps I should dedicate myself to a comic. It's what I've been working towards. How did you get started? I think I need to read more.
I love moebius, his work that is. I love comic art and environmental drawings. Pic related.
I'll be posting my art for rates, post your art too for rates.
do you need to talk anon? Maybe there is an anon who wants to listen.
Is that even a sculpture? It looks like something you would fasten to a wall to hang plants.
I don't have a tablet but i'm doing basic line art with photoshop using some tutorial I found.
I know I can do better though, and photoshop isn't the best software to use.
What free software should I be using to draw things like this without a tablet?
Please rate my manga.
So I'm traying to paint in SAI but I can't quit get the hold of it, my painting attemps come out as muddy.
Is SAI even good for painting or is it ony good for flat colors?
Any medium can produce muddy colors, it's in the hands of the artist.
Up the edge hardness, turn off the 'blend' option in the advanced settings (the normal blending slider should be enough), and set minimum density to something like 30-40 if you really feel the need to.
>Draw circles all day
>Totally stopped doing still lifes
>Have just been practicing circles from the shoulder for 1 hour for the past 2 weeks
Is it a waste of time? Should I move on?
