STARVING ARTISTS GET OVER HERE AND WATCH THIS VIDEO!:www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWXYoD…

It's really relevant to me right now, because suddenly people have been asking me about my canvases and cut outs... like people I know. I think it's because I posted this picture on my facebook. (which I hardly ever do because I'm like invisible with my friends and family when it comes to my art.)

How it looks in my room BTW: ceshira.tumblr.com/post/408915…

And what the guy says in the video is true. People expect you to do free work because "Hell, it will only take you a few minutes."

Well no it doesn't. For one thing, I take my sweet ass time because I worry that if it looks bad, I'll see how limited my abilities really are. AND THEN MY FAMILY WILL CRITICIZE ME SAYING "SHE QUIT BEING A NURSE FOR THIS? PSSSHHHH" (I have some issues with family's judge-y eyes.) So yes, I think the emotional stress I would have to be put through is worth something right?
I worked on my drawing abilities for years now (that sounds so weird of me to say since I'm young and have only taken an Art 1 class in high school xD), and it should rewarded....

I swear I'll stop with the rant now.

Ok ok I've calmed down now. Not all of my family is like that. One is offering to pay me for a portrait. yay!

For my final thoughts, I want to thank all of you who support me, and commission me, comment me, and WELL HELL JUST FOR BEING HERE WITH ME.


I know I'm a sap, but I really do appreciate it you guys.

I'm so happy that I cleaned up my inbox and answered everyone too xD

Ugh, I know what that feels like - the invisible thing. However, at least you have a ton of people checking out your art and admiring it. I still have yet to really get any attention or commissions, even requests. This is a great video, though! I saw this video on facebook somewhere recently, but I didn't watch it (and something told me I should). So, thank you Ceshira!

It's important to take pride in one's sense of art. Some artists can make a sketch in 5 mins, some may take 5 hrs. But in the end, it has to reflect the artist. Javonne tells me all the time "I wouldn't charge for my work if I didn't need the money". And he's right, the concept of exchange is relevant of the society. And unfortunately, money influences our society. I believe all artists, and in fact all societal contributors, who truly value their work, never really care to charge money for it. It's the art or contribution itself that makes the person feel "complete". From Mozart, to Newton, from Beethoven to Da Vinci, from T. Townsen Brown to Michael Faraday, and From Nikola Tesla to A. Einstein. Art is what fulfills the Artist. Money is simply the byproduct of the culture.

Keep doing what you're doing Ceshira! :clap:

I think your art is really great, and I would commission you, except that I'm dead broke :(
And it's okay to rant, you deserve it :)
I also really love the courage the cowardly do you did ^^
