Dream Job by Zombiesmile Dream Job by Zombiesmile
Being a Comic Artist  is a tough life. :C

♥ Please Read ♥
If you'd like more mini comics more often, please check out my :star:PATREON page:star: and support me! Even $1 a month would help me out. :')
If I reach my goal, I will start working on a fixed schedule.
You can get lots of little goodies and everyone would benefit from this since my comics will remain free and available online. 

Thanks to everyone for all your support all these years, it really means the world to me!

I love draw but I never dream to become mangaka/comic artist. My drawing style and my story are not almost people's tastes, sometimes I feel lonely because my comics are not welcome by readers. You are an admirable person, you dare to pursue your childhood dream and turn it into reality. 

Comic artist is a difficult way to go, I know, but please keep moving forward and never back down. Hug

you don't think complex detailed pictures take more effort than a simple gingerbread man style pictures?

TyaAndAsha Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2015  Student Digital Artist
No matter how simple the style, it's still art and takes a long time to perfect.

I'm nowhere near a professional artist, I don't do "complex" pictures, so it takes me about 10 minutes to
do a simple piece of art.
But with a professional it still takes a long time, no matter how simple.

I know it takes awhile, I was just saying that your statement of "she works just as hard" may be a little off when compared to the very detailed artists

TyaAndAsha Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Like I said before, I know it's less detailed, but being a comic artist is hard. Most of them tend to use simpler styles, but they have to keep creating comics, and doing that with great amazing detail wouldnt really be necessary, but looking at the funny plots, and the amount of comics she's made, she probably has worked just as hard, if not harder.

Looking to be a comic artist myself :(

but it is so tough that I might just end up writing stories and drawing as two separate hobbies/occupations

I'd support you on Patreon but I'm in no position to support myself or my family at the moment.. Maybe one day when I finally catch a break. Hug

They can't yell at me if I work from home right? If they're a good boss the won't yell at their employees either. I'm worried about deadlines though.

OMG! The same thing happened to me as a kid. All I could think about was becoming an artist when I grew up. Well-meaning but misguided Grandma shamefully discouraged me from it, claiming "artists can't make a good living..." Mom, on the other hand, mentions several modern artists alive and well with their artist careers. Today my art mostly consists of fanart and cartoons; I don't plan to publish my OC's because they belong strictly to my fanfics. I can't turn my talent into a career either, because I may deal with nagging criticisms, and I don't want to turn the art I love into a "chore."
