at what point do you start calling yourself an artist? what point did YOU?

my drawings are so awful I wouldn't dare wear that label

>> No.2865100

Just a few here do.
I will call myself an artist after i finished this big painting (it is my first real artwork because art is 50% aesthetic 30% Metaphysik and 20% philosopy) i started months ago together with some kind of manifesto.

I prefer the label "disappointment" myself

look at this empty thread, goes to show the number of people who actually draw on /ic/

>> No.2865659

Wouldn't you only call yourself an artist if you make a living out of it?

>> No.2865686

After a ton of people kept coming up to me and calling me an artist, I figured I am an artist.

no one calls you an artist

No, if you life for it. If you paint for money you are a painter or illustrator or something.

>> No.2866510

I just call myself an illustrator. ''Artist'' seems pretentious

Calling yourself and illustrator sounds pretentious. Do you even make money?

>> No.2866523

>>2864694

I started to dare calling myself an artist when I had my first commission. ( I didn't untill this time )

If my art is worst selling, if someone is touched by my art to the point to give me money, then I did my job as an 'artist'. So I consider myself an artist now.

>> No.2866748

If you make art, you are an artist. The word itself carries no implication of ability or success. Not every artist is a professional, practicing artist.

>> No.2866772

I've always felt uncomfortable calling myself an artist. I love art... aside from video games it's the thing i love the most, but I'm still not at a point where I'm "good". Calling myself an artist feels dirty, like Salvador Dahli is an artist. I'm, I just draw.

...that's me, i just draw.

I cringe at the thought of calling myself an artist in front of anyone, i just feel that it's such a pretentious label, u know? Or maybe it's only problems i have with self esteem

>> No.2866812

It's your self esteem

I'll just call myself an artist when i do something relevant

You're right, they call us "drawers", those illiterate scum.

I've put enough time and effort into it that I'm happy to think of myself as an artist. Just not a very good one.

tbqh its better to call yourself on a specific label such as illustrator, animator, actor etc. because calling yourself an 'artist' also makes you equal to a drooling retard who splashes a canvas with his shit and also calls himself an 'artist'
