I am an inspired beginner artist, and my dream is to be able to draw web comics.
I know that everyone can start drawing one right now, but I also want to draw something I can be proud of. Anything less than my standards (that are yet too high for me to realize) would never satisfy me. Some might say that living like that is a pain, but I love it. I live for the pain of not being good enough, I live for the dream of someday being able to accomplish my goals. A day without improvement is a day wasted.
For me, living without a goal, living without something to strive for, without doing at least 100% of my abilities, without progress, is not a life worth living. Call that anxiety (which I won't deny) but it does not matter.
I want to be able to draw my stories, drawing is my favourite medium of art. Even if my career will stagnate, I would never regret it. I can't imagine myself living with a menial labor job, I chose to live a life that I will enjoy.
I am so harsh on myself because for me to draw stories, I have to be able to improve said stories with my art. If for example I want to draw an expression of a character that experiences happiness or sadness, I would have to be able to increase the effect of the expression. For me, not being able to tell something because I can't draw it is unacceptable.

Sometimes I can be too introverted to participate in social activities such as replying to comments, commenting & interacting with other users, so please forgive me for that. I am not a snob, I promise ;-;
