I am turning 20 this year and I looked back at the last 5 years I have been working more seriously towards being better at art and after all hours put in I feel like I am not where I want to be.
I know that setting goals in art is usually really unrealistic and that I am still very young AND that 5 years really isnt that much time, but sometimes I feel a bit disappointed on my progress. Not in the way that I tell myself "Damn, I suck" but more like "Damn, this is going to take so much more than I thought". I feel like I am starting to realize that this is going to be a fight. And to be honest, I am scared. It scares the shit out of me that I am investing so much on something that could not succeed.
Sorry for posting this, its just something that has been in my mind lately because things are expensive and bills are going to start getting bigger now that I need to take care of myself and make important decisions.
