    Unhappy am i to old to pursuit a career in concep or ilustrations :S

    hello i have 24 years and id like to know what do you think about this:

    am i to old to pursuit a career in concep art or illustrations? i wasted a lot of my time in games when i was kid, then a jumped in to music,went to a degree in marketing, and then with 22 years i just quite the marketing degree and went to a degree in a school of visual arts, im finishing the second year. but this question is always in my mind...

    i will put my page in d.a for you guys to see if im a lost case or if i have a chance.

    Yes, you are far too old. Time to check yourself into the glue factory
    and leave your adult diaper at the door.

    NO. I'm the same age as you. If there was some sort universal age requirement of art-greatness before age 21 a LOT of people would be screwed. I think you're doing pretty good.

    How come you didn't ask me that when I said I could not
    get it up anymore. Now -that- was sarcasm!
