I'm not aiming for anything. It's just a hobby to kill time. If something comes out of it eventually, so be it.
>>
i just want to be satisfied with my art so that I can create things and not wonder if I should give up or start over because it’s shit, or wonder if objectively shittier art gets more responses because of some lowest common denominator or because my art is actually worse and i’m the only one who doesn’t see it, or wonder if what positive comments i do get are sincere or just empty lip service because they want something from me or feel they need to praise me the way adults reward children for trying even when the actual result is demonstrably bad

>What's your dream /ic/?
to be able to make beautiful drawings that people can look at and enjoy.

It would be nice if I could make money from it, but really if I just get to the point that I can draw the way I want and make the kind of drawings I want, I think that would be enough to give me happiness.

I want to draw my own disgusting fetish porn.

Actual dream?
Being paid $600-$800 a month, but for drawing thing I like to draw. More money would be fine, but that's a bare minimum to live comfortably.
So kinda like the oots patreon dude (he gets paid like 5k currently tho).

As it is, I'm living of drawing absolutely every kind of porn and making maybe $200-300 a month

I want to look at my art and realize it's something beautiful, with skill enough that I can make a comfortable living. I'm not looking for some quick and easy way out, and I'm not trying to be a coom artist. It's the journey of grinding and learning and grinding some more and more and more until I'm finally there. Becoming a great artist is a lifelong path and I know that no matter how much I learn, there will always be more. But I want to do it still. I've wanted to be an artist for as long as I can remember, ever since I was a little kid and my dad showed me how to draw a goofy looking guy. But too many times I've lost my path. I've spent my entire life drawing off and on, but never making any serious improvement. Realistically, I'm /beg/ and it hurt to even admit that to myself. I told myself that it was impossible, that I just wasn't gifted, and that being a great artist was just a pipe dream. For years, I stayed with that mentality, and watched others surpass me. I'm still a shitty artist but I'm taking it more seriously now. A week ago I quit playing vidya because I realized it was a waste of my time. For all the hours I spent on vidya, I don't have a single thing to show for it. I'm not letting myself put in any less than 2 hours a day drawing now. I'm shit and retarded but I want to live my dream.

most ppl dont have dreams. there's The Higher Man and The Herd.
The higher man have a dream and spend his whole life accomplishing it even if he have to sacrifice his friends , family, health or happiness.

The Herd is just satisfied with what he's doing and just enjoy life while working to make the higher man's dream come true with his fellow herd ppl.

I want to return to my home country. I want to go as far north as I can, live in a cabin where the elements are strong and close, and I want to draw without having to worry about meaningless things.

Everyone in this thread is the same. They either want to be able to work without a worry, or they already don't need to worry so they just want to work.

Art seems to be the only thing I'm good at. I want to see how far I can take myself and express myself with art. Not sure if I'll make it or not but I think I can since I'm extremely imaginative so I'll keep trying my best.

Art meant so much to me growing up but it was literally my first dream as a little 5 year old. But no one was there to nurse the flame
Even in school, the programs were dissolving
it wasn’t a path I couldnt take and I was to stupid, to scared to ignorant, to concerned about surviving in the future to know how to get better
But art still means so much to me, art and stories helped me cope with a lot of depression I had. I always had trouble with communicating with people but being able to enjoy something together were good memories

Fuck dude I wish I could have known how to improve as an artist growing up. People would tell me to just draw and that’s what I did. I’m to stupid to know what that actually meant

Now I’m 25, still trying to improve, Ive felt what it was like to live with stability for a little bit but that gave me enough time to realize everything I didn’t have in life and that I can’t be the same kind of artist people born better than me are. I’m just there to fail so others could shine

Now I got nothing, I can’t even watch or read something drawn without thinking everything I could never have. I hate that I’ve become bitter
I try to improve but I don’t have the right mind, upbringing, soul or body to be an artist. I just need to keep trying and if I kill myself that just means someone like me really was never meant to create

Baby, if you’re gonna work hard each month, you might as well charge more. It’s the same effort to make $800 a month as it is to make $8000 so you might as well aim for the $8000. Work smarter not harder.

No one fucking cares about big beautiful landscapes or portraits. The only use for a picture in this time is to cum to it. It's the only realistic way to make money from drawing. What museum is gonna buy your oil painting you spent weeks only? Compared to the hundreds of dollars you can make doing a 3 hour sketch of an obscure fetish.

blame it on the consumers that only want to see and care about porn
blame it on social media
blame it on the system that forces you in the mindset of

blame the fucking normies

there is no reason to do art
you either draw things or you dont
art is a unnatural process

Would love to encompass the appeal from landscapes, the elegance from a warm ambiance and combine them with Sex into a glorious composition of erotic figures being complimented by the bathing light and embracing scenery.

I've had multiple graphic novel story ideas bouncing around in my head since the start and I want to do them as much justice as I can. Making it to me would be to either get published or developing a following while publishing online. Everything I have learned since I started is in pursuit of this goal. Am I GMI? Hopefully, but probably not. Doesn't mean I won't try like hell

I draw to get gud at drawing lewds so I can cash in on that shit, then I won't have to leave the house ever again.

My hatred for women fuels my boner to absorb all information of the female form and separate it from female faggotry. By taking womens advantage of being a fuckhole and using it for my own benefit, I am freeing myself and other men from giving these undeserving fucking rancid disgusting vapid mindless holes the male attention and simping they will never deserve. I will become a bonermancer, I will shit on a page without giving a fuck and lo, on the page there will be flawless fucking form and anatomy that makes hands free cooming an easy task. I will spawn machinations of the feminine physical form that will cripple the confidence and will to live of even the most experienced Stacy.
When the female suicide rate rises enough to equalise with the male suicide rate across the world, I will know my work is done.
All women are whores.

I've got an idea for a comic/graphic novel in my head and I want to make it come true with art that I consider good.
If I get some kind of following with even a few hundred people reading it that would be enough, but I'm mostly doing it for myself because I want to see where I can take it.

Need to actually learn how to draw first though

It’s better to have a bad version finished and gain experience. Don’t fall in the good trap. Bad and finished is better than good and never getting further than 2 pages. You WILL work on new projects in the future, start your thing today and get past it

Very true, but I'm a /beg/ and I can't draw the things I want to draw even at a very basic level so I can't start it just yet.
I suppose I could try do some thumbnailing or storyboards just to get a rough idea going, but I want to convey a proper sense of movement and perspective in my drawings like Murata does. Obviously I'm not going to manage something like pic related for many years, and that's fine, but I can't even get a very basic idea down on paper yet because I don't really know how.
I'm going to do it though anon, I promise.

desu i did this and regret it
i went in without really knowing much
i learned a lot from my failure but i wish i had stronger foundations in fundies before starting
