i have this weird insecurity bc i feel like most animation artists usually had some sort of accomplishment or thing to solidfy their ability as artists growing up, like
the art community is only so big so a lot of ppl had done things like gone to c/.ss/sa in high school or they were really popular as artists growing up in school, or had a large online following at a young age, or got into cal.//arts eventually, etc.
and i had none of that. i got rejected from c/..ss/sa when i applied, never got to go to ca.la//rts, my high school art teacher hated me gave me an F in her class, and no one liked my art and i felt constantly overshadowed. i was put down as an artist a lot, never won any competitions or had any accomplishments, never had an online following for most of my life for my work, etc
idk its weird but i feel really inadequate bc i never got to have any recognition or anything to make me feel like i was taking the right path or that i belonged or fit in with other artists so i feel like this weird outcast. like im just wasting my time and trying to fit into a community i have no place to be in .
mmm its weird how that stuff that happens when you are growing up impacts your adult life. i think that’s why i feel like a crappy artist and have such severe insecurities in my abilities even though a lot of people tell me otherwise. it’s not bc im fishing for compliments, i just, augh.
Hey! I’ve gathered a few resources for various subjects so I’d taught I’d share them in one masterpost! I’ll keep adding more resources as I gather more, so don’t worry if a subject you study is left out and feel free to add any resources you may find!
