Artist | Student | Traditional Art
United States
I've loved to draw my whole life, sometimes I feel it's the only thing I know how to do. (Aside from cleaning, cooking, and eating peanut butter).

One of my goals is to branch out again into new mediums (to "hunt down and destroy my artistic weaknesses" )
Interests
YES. After spending hours upon hours upon days, weeks, months, years, doing art, especially when it can take so for other people, YES, to me, but... 

This has been a great deep debate in mind since my child hood, and only recently I've begun researching the topic, and a particular article I found to be very positive and uplifting on the subject, including the comments below it: mariabrophy.com/business-of-ar…


When I mean "If so, how?" I mean, if they should get paid, than what would you consider, in your thoughts to be 'worth paying for'? Everyone's view on art and art itself is such a wide ocean of views and ideas, how can one know what is truly 'worthwhile' ? 


There are other articles as well, such as this mans view that to sell your work you must no longer be an artist, but an entrepreneur~ which to a certain extent I can agree on, but in some ways it makes me think, 'then shouldn't a doctor or lawyer be one too?' even if they already get more payment than more artists just by status alone. Here's the article I mention: torrentfreak.com/how-shall-the…   And I don't know about you but in ways I find his whole outlook for the article too cynical to me, yet at the same time I've always beaten into my subconsious that to be a successful artist one should also know business. But perhaps that concept of mine is wrong, or miss-understood? 



*What do you think about artists and getting paid for their works? 
  • Mood: Daily Needs
  • Listening to: most beautiful trance songs part1
  • Reading: Just finished Shift by Hugh Howey
  • Watching: Indiana Jones and The Lost Ark
  • Playing: with photoshopCS6 n colored pencils
  • Eating: burrito n tortilla chips
  • Drinking: Water and grapefruit juice

Oh hey there, I just wanted to thank you for the fave~~ ^.^

Also...a bit of a shameless plug, but if you'd like to follow my work, other than the work that gets put up on dA then you should head over to my Facebook page (Link in my signature) and hit "Like". It would totally make my day!

Either way, I really appreciate the support you've given me thus far! :)
