i DID read the whole post, and it’s not like you CAN’T do it, you CAN do it, you just got to be strong enough and put all your self into it, i know it’s hard and very stressfull, i’ve been through stuff like that.. but hey, it’s a chance! don’t letgo
I have to draw for hours EVERY DAY to keep up with my commissions. That’s spending hours drawings something I’ve been asked to do, not something I WANT to it. Of course I physically CAN do it, but it’s so draining. I put none of my soul into it, it wears me out. I know I should be strong and just do it but why should I force myself to draw something I just really don’t want to? It’s horrible. Sorry I just think it’s easier said than done. Drawing isn’t easy at all and it’s a very consuming thing. I love it when I’m drawing things for myself, but I have no time for that anymore, or I can only spend 2 hours maximum on it. The money’s great (most of the time, but the guy is refusing to pay me for this), but I’ve got my whole life to make money from art. I’d be happy to do big painted commissions when I’m 30 or-so, but now I’m spending my summer sat in my little cramped study drawing things I don’t care about, whilst I get 5 emails a day saying “Is my drawing done yet?” “When are you sending it off” “Why is it taking so long” “Oh sorry I can’t afford £30 can you lower it to £15?” Of course it’s a good CHANCE and opportunity, but it’s making me miserable, and I shouldn’t have to feel miserable because of something I apparently love.
