What's wrong with you people


Btw, in my last artwork, you guys rate so low because you honestly think it's shit, or because you think having a penis in the forehead is gross? Just curious

"Deep words" - Daker777NG 2013.

Posted by Daker777NG - September 29th, 2013

Well, i started animating like one year ago or so, and i haven't get used to it yet, i can't keep up with a proyect and work on it regularly, i always start to feel this pressure and i start procastinating, the result of that is: wasted time, no progress done, and a bitter feeling of guilt and emptyness, even more when i had voice actors voice for me and want to see the animation finished. My question is: Did you have this kind of situation when you started animating and then got used to animate more regularly? Is it just me?

I see these people that say they animate like 5 or more hours a day, and that they are where they are because of that persistence, and ask myself "Do i lack the passion to do that? Maybe animating is not my thing?"
I remember when i was like 10 years old, i was drawing everyday, i drew anything, i did comics because i liked them, and i probably did more comics in a week than now animations in 3 months...
I know this "problem" i have is very common between artists, "lack of motivation". I really didn't gave it much thought until i heard these words from Max Gilardi, aka "Hotdiggedydemon", he got asked how did he find the motivation to do animation and he said more or less: "I don't have to, i don't know why you would have to get motivated to do something you love". With that, i thought, "maybe i shouldn't waste my time doing something that i need to get motivated to do"

"Find a work you are passionate about, and you will never have to work again" I heard these words in a comercial about some tv program, it is completely true...

I'm just asking if you had a period of time when you knew you should be animating, but just didn't have the persistence or the passion to do it, and then you recovered again. I cannot help it but think that maybe i just can't do it, and that i shouldn't be aiming to animate profesionally some day, because i'll just get depressed by working on something that i don't like, but that's the question, "Do i like animating?" I do, i really enjoy some days, when i start animating and i do a good movement i'm proud of or something, but other days i just don't feel it, i don't enjoy it, i start to get angry, stressed etc, etc... But why does that happen? I just don't understand it, i'm so confused about this, i don't want to end up working on something that i don't like, or wasting my talents because now i just "don't feel like it"...

Sometimes i even wonder if 2d animation has future anyway, Disney going full 3d with even a 3d software that looks like 2d (paperman, look it up), not feature 2d animation anymore in cinemas and shit...
I'm reaching that age when i have to decide if i want to go to college, and i need to decide what to do with my life, but i don't know if animation is the path i should choose, for both reasons, i don't know if 2d has any future and i don't know if i will enjoy being a profesional animator.
