Who /artfag/ here?
Aspiring musicians, screenwriters, etc.
I'm an aspiring musician, screenwriter and television show writer/creator. After community college I will wagecuck while doing that all on the side.
I find that for robots, flexing your creative muscles can help keep depression at bay. When I'm writing or composing some shit, that'll feel like the only thing that matters and I forget all of my troubles temporarily.
You could probably get some books or take some classes. If you can, go to a community college and if your parents make less than 40k a year, you can go to school on the Pell Grant an not pay out of pocket.
After they subtract the tuition you'll have like $1,500 a semester and you're free to do what you want with it.
I'm not an aspiring anything, but my psychologist suggests I use as many creative outlets as possible. Over the last few years I've picked up the violin, sewing, sculpting, drawing digitally, an amassed a small collection of coloring books and utensils. To a smaller extent I've tried traditional painting, photography and writing. The only one I really show any promise in is digital drawing and the violin, but I want to keep it as a therapeutic creative outlet, not have it turn into a job.
>want to be an artist
>can't come up with anything, no talent, no passion
Creative hobbies depress me
me too, whenever I come up with a chord progression I like it doesn't take long for me to either find it boring or too similar to something that already exists. With writing and drawing it's even worse. Of course self-doubt is really common among people who produce such content but for me it's so bad that I can't finish anything I started
>started drawing anime shit when I was 12
>mostly drew hentai when I became older
>studied human anatomy because my drawings looked really weird in general
>now make around 900-1100 euro a month because of erocommissions
Sometimes there are people who want to pay tons of money for furry and other stuff I don't draw, but in general it is really chill. I think if I would move out I could live comfortably with that amound of money
Aspiring musician reporting in. Soundcloud page for my electronic autism is coming along nicely.
I've tried writing a few times also. I worked on an 8 episode TV script with a friend for a few months before we both gave up after running into pacing problems. Besides that, the same friend wants to turn a short story I wrote into a short film. Doubt anything will come of it though.
Sometimes I doodle fursmut but I never post it or anything. I've stopped drawing because I've come to realize that doing LITERALLY ANYTHING other than bashing up my keyboard is beyond me, and not worth doing, and no one will ever like anything I do.
i draw just for fun to relax and take my mind off things. mostly manga related stuff.
my goal is to one day have finished atleast 2 short hentai mangas.
the hobby makes me more depressed than happy tho becuase its kinda hard to not compare yourself to others sometimes, or hate on yourself for not practicing enough etc.
