How do you stay passionate for art as an adult? The older I get the less enjoyment I get from looking at or drawing art just as much as I lose interest in cartoons or videogames.

>> No.4011239

It's quite simple, really. Art just wasn't for you. Just stop while you're ahead, it is not for everyone.

Just grind through it anyway, anon. Life is suffering, and challenge is one of the few things which keeps it interesting. More challenges in your life is a good thing. Think of this as something to overcome.

Don't listen to this.

>> No.4011498

Don't listen to this. Grinding through something you have no interest in is the worst mistake you could make. There are good types of suffering and bad types of suffering and this is an example of bad. It's like saying you should voluntarily cut your arm off just to make life more challenging.

>> No.4011503

Just take a break. I grinded art for 3 YEARS and then completely lost passion for it. After a year, I regained my passion back. Go do other stuff, try different sports, travel, drugs , make new friends, etc

>> No.4011509

If you don't enjoy it, why the fuck would you do it? Getting good at, or even making, art takes a ton of time. Why would you waste that time on art if you can spend it on something you enjoy instead?

Now if you start doing something like wasting hours watching TV, then that's a different issue. But that still doesn't mean that you should be drawing... it just means that you should find something better to do with your life.

Just because something is a challenge doesn't automatically mean it's the right thing to do.

Can you imagine believing this bullshit?

I'm almost 30 and I never stopped enjoying playing videogames, watching anime or drawing. But I've seen plenty of people like you. I guess my case is more rare.

If you had fun once, then it means something has changed, right? Either something with the subject of your fun or within yourself. Try to remember when did you stop being enthusiastic about art and try to think of things you still enjoy.

>> No.4012023

It's just you, most normal adults put away childish things like anime and videogames when they're older. I just don't see why someone would still like those things when they're mature adults.

>> No.4012052

Age has nothing to do with hobbies, unless they're made with a very specific age group in mind. You can play videogames, watch anime and draw whatever you want at any age. These activities don't require any particular state of health or physique either.
Besides, what "mature" hobbies and time consuming activities do you start doing when you grow older? Watching TV shows? Looking after your family and saving for a car?

>> No.4012057

Ah yes the finer things in life. Sex and booze. Also watching ESPN and golfing with the bros. Cheers fellow mature adult!

While you're at it why don't you man up some more and marry a single mom with 4 kids. So what about her past just let it go and accept her baggage. Don't forget to work overtime for shienstiens new yhat.

> unless they're made with a very specific age group in mind.
All animation, videogames, and superhero movies are made with a very young audience in mind. You'll see that the majority of well-minded adults don't partake in these activities, and will move past these things once they're older.

No, let him stop, fucking crybabys that want everything in a golden spoon, Art is not supossed to be always enjoyable, it supossed to be a sacrifice and a life goal, and if this brainlet with 23 years old hasnt realliced of this he doesnt deserve to be in the art communnity

It is enjoyable for good artists. I've never seen a professional artist complain that he's drawing to much.

>> No.4012279

Be as eclectic as possible. Give anything that piques your interest a chance. Different styles of music, film, literature, fashion, animation or comic books than what you're used to. Just be honest about what you like and dislike and you might be drawn into something completely new. It's possible you've grown out of your old interests, but you don't owe any commitment to your past self to keep liking the same things.

How the fuck 23 year old is not an adult.
Anyway op, I'm your age and can only enjoy games, anime or drinking in moderation BUT being productive is quite satisfying. I think when your mind matures you want to give back something meaningful to society and world. Maybe your taste for art didn't develop and you don't want to draw cartoony stuff anymore and should explore and find what you like. Maybe it's not for you and you'd be happier doing woodwork or working in garden. If everything you've liked seems bland maybe you're depressed to some extent and should try figuring it out with introspection.

>> No.4014464

I am 30 next year (started 2 years ago) and I have never found a more constructive hobby until now, just draw things you wanted to draw, damn the fundamentals and do anything you need to keep the fire burning.

My dudes, the process of making art isn't rly supposed to be anything, it just kind of is.

I didn't enjoy snowboarding until I was good enough to bomb down the slopes and move fast and freely to music.

Is it possible that learning art could be the same? suffer through the fundies and skill development until you can draw whatever you want! This is what I'm holding out for, I feel like I will enjoy art when I can draw what I want

>> No.4014483

This isn't to invalidate you guys btw, it's just that I don't like the matter of fact tone ppl use when they talk on this stuff. So, just remember there are different routes to the same destination, I guess.

Most people at 23 years of age still haven't fully matured brains. So no, not adults yet.

>> No.4014972

Do some soul searching.

Do you dislike it because it's difficult/you're bad at it and that makes you uncomfortable? If so, it's worth it to persevere. People don't like being uncomfortable and people don't like being shit at things, but people DO like overcoming obstacles if the outcome is worthwhile.

Do you dislike it because it bores you, and you can't think of ways to make it more interesting? Then there's nothing wrong with moving on and finding a new hobby. If art doesn't bring you joy and the prospect of being good at something you don't even like doing isn't enticing, it's not worth doing. People get bored of things. People learn to like new things. You might even be able to find a new hobby that uses some of the skills you learned in art. Hell, in a few years time you might find a renewed passion for art.
