But I've been thinking past that. Maybe thinking "what's next" is putting it wrong. I think it's more of "Why am I doing this?" more than anything. I don't really know WHY I started drawing; why I chose that to be "my thing", but it did, and I never really questioned it... and I'm kinda glad I never did, because I don't think I can do anything else. So for the most part, I've been drawing because uh... uhm... wait, hold on... because I never really thought about doing something else, I guess.
But what about now? I mean, I've kinda acknowledged that I don't really have a reason as to why I'm doing this, so you'd think I'd have some kind of identity crisis or some mental breakdown... that's a thing people do, right? I wouldn't know, I've never had one (at least, I don't THINK I ever did).
But, uh, anyway, what about now? Art/Animation has become something more than "a thing I like". I see it now as 'sharing', I guess? The whole point of art is to show other people, right? I assume that's to insight some kind of emotion into people, or some junk, but I guess that's a whole other story about symbolism and metaphors.
This sounds super sappy, but I want my art to make people feel good; not like, "sexual" good (I hope that was obvious enough), but happy, I guess; 'enlightened' sounded like I'm full of myself (I mean, it's not like I'm NOT, but again, another story). Y'know, like Buddha; hell, I already share the same body type with him.
Basically, I want people to feel the same way I do whenever I see really awesome art. Art is also about freedom and expressing yourself, but why make something that'll make someone feel like shit? Not that you shouldn't, it's your choice, but I just think it's so much better to make someone feel jazzed (Yeah, I said 'jazzed') and not feel like shit. Again, if you feel like that, I can't (and won't) stop you, but just think about what you could do if you made something more positive (Of course, there's the factor of personal problems and whatnot, but for the third fucking time, that's another story).
I want my art to entertain.
Naturally, I want people to like my art, but I want people to see it, and get inspired to do the same. Hopefully it won't be "Pfft, I can do better than THAT!" I already know that there's people better than me; all the artists that inspire me are. That's the whole reason I get hyped up seeing their work; so I can get to their level. Then someone will see my stuff, and feel the same way. It's a cycle.
Hopefully, I can do it, and I hope that if you feel the same way, we can get there together. Y'know, supporting each other. Power of friendship. ANIME.
