*Whispers* I want an RVB parks and rec AU
my mom made a snarky remark today that really upset me. she said that drawing fanart wasn’t a good way to make a living. I know its not a good main plan for life but COME ON Im 15 and my mom can at least appreciate when I draw good things! at least ik the basics of using a art program! at least I started early and is trying to get into a art high school in my town!
saying that “making fanart isn’t a good way to make a living” is just as hurtful as saying “my life goal’s are meaningless and I should be ashamed of my talents”
You can make a living off of fanart. My friend usagisquared practically lives off of her fanart commissions. She’s got other things she can do for income that are art related but that isn’t really the point.
Making fanart for other people is a good way to make a living. It’s no different then doing any other kind of art work for people. Just because you’re drawing fictional people instead of real people or non-actors doesn’t change that.
*hugs* I’m sorry your mother doesn’t understand that. I hope other people link to people who do fanart commissions on this post - you can show them to your mother if they do. Maybe then she’ll take your passion as seriously as you do. Stay strong either way for us, okay? You’ve got a future in art so long as you’re willing to try.
*taps fingertips against desk* now.. how do i friend… we have similar interests, somebody said this person apparently wants to be friends with me, but i suck at social interaction and have a very limited mental scope.
well if all else fails i guess porn always works, right?

Put an assumption in my ask. I’ll confirm or dispute it. I’m not gonna be mean or anything, I’m just very interested.
