Looks like I'm late . . .

Fennekin artworks are already been made.  So . . . if I can't be first, I'll just quit.  It isn't like anyone expects me to make one . . . *sigh*

You know what I'm talking about.  I wouldn't be best if I'm not first.  No one will believe in my talent . . . it's pointless for me to make a Fennekin artwork if it is already been made.  It's not like anyone wants for me to make one.

No, seriously I have no idea what you're talking about.

Hey, hey! Don't be like that! You can still make that art. It doesn't matter who's first or not. I believe in your talent!

You seem to be the only one cheering me up.  Thanks, but who else believes that?  What is right and fair in this world?

I don't think you have.  Do you really believe an unpopular person like me is talented?  The world and reality doesn't believe that.  If the world doesn't believe, why deny that I am?  There's a fine line between belief and denial, you know, and the line is society.  If the majority doesn't believe in my talent, then I'll be denying myself if I am.

Why dont you just focus on the people who do like you.

How's that going to help?  It's a very small group of people.  Something like this isn't going to convince doubters.  People believe in famous people more than someone unknown.  What if anyone meets a stranger?  Is anyone going to believe?

dude, seriously? your getting bummed out just because your not first? that is ridiculous! there's no reason to get depressed just because of that. think of it this way, you weren't the first to make sonic art either but that didn't stop you did it. art isn't about who did what first or about getting famous, it's about creating some thing you want to see and expressing yourself. so get over the fact you weren't first and get creating!

I don't think you get it.  I have been expressing myself in art form!  However, no one believes that, nor anyone cares.  If I can't be first or best, then no one will believe.  Everyone WILL assume that I'm lying to myself.  Maybe they are right . . . maybe I am talentless . . .

....  You're being a complete idiot.    The Mona Lisa was not the first drawing of a woman, and the Eiffel Tower was not the first structure built in the world.   You either have to suck it up and stop living in a cess pool of "why is this so hard? ". Or you give up because you are weak.   Noone will watch your channel out of pity, so stop whining and start enjoying what you do.  If you do not enjoy drawing for the sake of drawing, then this is not your calling.   It isnt about being popular.  Its about doing something you love.

I'm not certain if you understand the harshness of reality or that you're ignorant from everything that surrounds you.  I'm SUPPOSE to make a living out of my passion.  Due to our crappy government, being hired in a "normal" job is pretty much like winning a lottery . . . or a beauty contest.  So, the only way I can make money is with either commissions or start my own company.  One major problem concerning both of those ways: advertisement.  I have to be known in order to make profit.  I can't sell any of my works if I have no one willing to do so.  Therefore, it's a prerequisite to be popular!  The more popular I am, the more people are buying my product.  Simple reasoning . . . or are you saying that there's more ways to make money than commissions, normal jobs, peddling, selling, welfare, bank-robbing, pickpocketing, triangle schemes, stealing identities, and web traffic?  What there is more to make sure that I do have a computer and that I do have Internet?  What there is more to buy necessities like food, utilities, clothes, and anything people need?  WHAT IS THERE FOR ME TO LIVE?!

I get it . . . this world is going to war against me . . . why suffer . . . I'll never have any success story . . . once a failure . . . always a failure . . . no one can truly understand the situation I have to endure for many years and continue on . . . I really need to end it all . . . it isn't like there's hope for me . . .

I'm sorry, but what kind of crap-ass excuse is that? Did you really think you could have beaten the entire internet to drawing whatever new Pokemon is in Generation VI? At this point, you're just looking for an excuse to.... do whatever the hell it is you're trying to do.

I've told you before what the game industry is like, and what it means to be an artist. You claim to have perfected talent, but I highly fucking doubt that, not when there are countless examples online of what other artists have in their portfolio and what the standard is in the gaming industry, and trying to compare yourself and what you have posted here on Inkbunny so far to the artists of League of Legends, for example, is deluding yourself.

That's ultimately what this comes down to; delusion. You swell your own ego, however fragile it is, into a bubble and then pout in a journal or the rare submission, thinking that the entire world is out to get you when that bubble inevitably bursts, contemplating suicide. You want to give up at the threshold of the journey, thinking that you've already reached the end of the line when in reality it's an endless frontier. The instant you put down the brush and say you're done is when you begin to stagnate.

You want to break into the gaming industry, yet you don't really seem to know much about the environment. I can tell you right now that it's hard; like I said before, I'm trying to do it myself. It is very hard. It is GRUELING. There is a lot of competition out there, and we have to strive to be better than them, and actually better, not deluding ourselves that we're the next Rembrandt. Building a portfolio is very labor intensive, because you're never stopping. You always have to add to it, one to hone your skill and learn new techniques, and two because employers want to know that you're actually doing the first part. It doesn't help you at all if you only submit one thing every two months at best, and the rest of the competition is doing better stuff much more frequently.

Putting that aside, say you just want a fanbase on the Internet. The same sort of thing applies. You're working against a giant stack of other artists' works that just piles up endlessly. Your one picture of 3D Cream from months ago will, over time, drown underneath the growing stack of other pictures tagged Cream. Don't expect to gain your fanbase from lurkers who might randomly dig into the stack. You have to keep throwing yourself out there, and if you want to gain more fans, you have to put more stuff into the stack all the time. That's not a war against you. That's just how reality works. What's more, you also tend to vitriolize yourself when you come and make journals and posts exactly like this, lamenting that the world is out to get you when most people don't even know who you are. No one came onto Inkbunny to look for another person's sob story unless they drink the tears of babies. People came to look at and enjoy art, not tend to someone's depression. Again, that's just something you should expect, and it's not an attack against you or anyone else in your position.

I considered pressganging you into a drawing group, but again, you want to vitriolize yourself like this and announce yourself as the greatest there ever was, rather than tickle whatever fancy is in your brain at the moment or spear around blindly for inspiration, and when you have completed something, step back and admire your work and see if you can spot what needs fixing or could have been done better. You seem to not want to do any of that. You have to want to churn out more artworks, and see whatever else can spill out of your brush. You have to force yourself to like it, and the more you do it, the easier it gets. If you do not have that ambition, and that drive, and the will to create does not burn like magma in your veins, then don't complain about your obscurity. Either way, pouting journals like this will not reward you your fanbase.
