I remember my youth. I see so much promise for the future here at deviant art. The talent by far outweighs the opportunities for commercial success. There is no recipe for it. Being good is necessary but being great is not. Commercial success is not an arbiter for aesthetic rank. Within these pages I have seen some great work. The test is not whether you are commercially successful. You are your own judge and jury. Patronage is accidental because there is so much to see here that one could actually miss something that one would love to support or help move to a larger and more focused venue. Even there, commercial success is not assured. Almost all of the process is outside an artist's direct influence.
There is something internal that drives every artist. Seeking an understanding of what drives you is fundamental to constructing the paths that you and art will travel. Sometimes they will overlap and sometimes you may feel that it has abandoned you. It will be with you forever in one way or another.
