Day Job/Slowing Down A Bit

Posted by DoctorCursed - March 16th, 2021

So you know how I said I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life and getting a day job was an option. I decided to get a day job and maybe ease a bit on the art department. You know, there are a lot of anxieties that come from being an artist on the internet. You constantly feel judged, you are constantly comparing yourself to others, and especially if you draw nsfw like me, it can sometimes be thankless as well. Don't get me wrong, everyone who has supported me has been awesome, but I don't expect people to be bowing down before me thanking me for the porn I make for them. It's a very base desire, just like you don't thank the rice farmer who labored tirelessly to provide the rice that you shovel into your maw hundreds of grains at a time. Working on art so much has taken it's toll on me, you worry about money as an artist, you feel guilty when you aren't working, but then you are too burnt out to work, and you end up pursuing neither work or leisure. Heck I don't even know half the characters requested for YCH because I lived under a rock. I haven't seen my real life friends in over 2 years. I bought a lot of computer games at full price that I never got to play or complete. I think it'd do me good to just work a normal day job as a food runner for a bit, while ending each day with some mind numbing anime or videogames. You know, actually act like a human for a bit. I'll still try to draw some lewds for you guys every now and then if I am not too tired from the manual labor. I'm not quitting as an artist, just slowing down a bit.
