The hardest thing about being an artist is...

DeviantART had an interesting survey this week where they asked members of the community what they thought was the hardest thing about being an artist. The answers were interesting. Some of the ones that kept coming back are:

• Making it look as good as it is inside your head.
• Judging your own art.
• Earning a living.
• Having lots of good ideas for pictures but having no motivation to draw.
• Thinking different.
• Understanding that the great sensitivity that drives such creativity can also be painful to the soul.
• Staying yourself and keeping your own style alive, even if nobody understand your art.
