People who diss artists for their job not being “an actual job” need to shut tf up

DRAWING IS HARD AS SHIT

Not only do artists spend literal YEARS developing this skill but they can fuck up their bodies while doing it
It doesn’t even take that many years to permanently injure yourself either

Me, for example, have been drawing for 6 years (honestly that’s not a goddamn lot if you compare to others) and I have the body of an old man now

My knees creek and ache from sitting for hours on end so going up stairs can be a fucking nightmare
My back hurts all the time and after slouching over to draw, sitting up properly takes all my effort
AND DON’T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON MY HAND
I can’t even make a fist because it hurts my wrist and my fingers are too stiff and the only comfortable position for it now is the way I hold a pencil
It hurts to hold my phone for long periods of time just because it “too heavy” and “heavier than a a pen or pencil”

EVEN WITH ALL OF THIS GODDAMN PAIN ARTISTS STILL DRAW

Honestly artists are fucking hardcore and need more respect as professionals
