Hey guys I'm Kora ( finally decided to post again).
I love art and like the never lacking majority of 16 year olds I want to be a concept artist.( however I'm most likely going to try the commercial art direction first because it seems like a more stabile direction,to kinda map out the art field and help me decide what to do .) but anyway onto my question:
How did you guys go through the bump of "I like to draw, to I draw for a living"?
I draw often, not nearly often enough as I should but once my school year ends( 2 weeks) I hope to radically change that start a sketch book here and get serious with my art. I know I love drawing but forcing myself to draw is something different, so how can I over come this?
I don't want to start hating art because I know I have a deadline and have to meet it. ( I remember reading a similar post but I couldn't find it) From experience I know that things get less fun when you are required to do them, at the same time I don't want to push put crappy looking designs because I just wanted to finish them and my heart wasn't in it. Can you force creativity, and convert spontanious Ideas into Ideas you pull from at will?
Personal experience? How did some of you go from "I draw sometimes for fun" to I draw everyday and need to produce X amounts of designs each week?
