I remember I wrote a journal about my goals couple years ago, what I want to achieve in the future, this is quite funny because...
I have not achieved any of these goals
I wanted to start small with game publishers like FFG or Paizo, never had a chance, even response.
I wanted to do applibot or mtg, or hearthstone cards, my work is still not good enough for that , now Im well aware of my flaws, its funny because when you start with something
and it becomes your passion, you progress so quickly in a short amount of time, that you may become a bit cocky, and I must admit, I was.
But now, my self esteem as an artist is very contradictory, its more like, Im good.. but not great, and good is the worst enemy of great you know
But what have I actually achieved?
Well, I got a chance to work on some amazing indie projects, mobile games, card games and even some RPGs .
And in the end? I got a job , working remotely for a studio, creating card illustrations, its like a dream isnt it?
The conclusion is, no matter what goals you have, because only thing that matters is your happiness.
