@04:36This inspires me to try harder and to not give up. I pretty much have gone into 'sleep mode' somewhat but I've now trying to revive myself, and thanks to your vid, I can. ^^

I am making these videos where I explain how I think about living as an artist. What keeps me moving, what keeps me working, and how I don't give up. This first one has been viewed over 35k times at its original source, and I've seen people on deviantart talk about it already, so I thought try and spread the word here some more.

I hope you get something out of it, let me know if you do.

Subscribe to my youtube account for more vids?

Or you could follow me on twitter or something! I'd appreciate it ;-)

I really appreciate this video, you've really got your head in the right place. The one thing I'd say is that there is one component missing from your equation, which is to keep striving to be better. If you apply your logic and someone keeps persevering but not growing, the odds of that break out happening aren't too great. You've got to stay the course it's true, but you've also got to keep improving your craft and learning from mistakes.

Man To find this Video on this page speaking so much sense u pretty summed up, my life up until the time I left Uni 6 years ago, so in theory i've got siz years to make it...well to be honest for me I dont think u can put a time limit on success but what reigns true to what your saying is, the whole story with pixar, and making it big show bizz and all that oh yh yep could agree more thats why i cant stommach x factor, its so artifically fake, and whack but still ur vid was a good watch and the animatic was nice good work, and nice words thanx for sharing i hope u keep true to what u wanna do dude.

peace ;)

I really like this. Not only because it's inspiring, but because it's realistic as well. You're up front with that - it DOES take a long time to make it. But it doesn't mean give up. Wonderful.

Sometimes it's like... It might not happen until you're old and grey. And if some people ask "Would you want it late rather than not at all?" Quite a lot will not want to wait.
Western civilization likes to focus on iiinssstant success, or short term destinations, rather than long term.

To be honest, the idea of working for all of this and only leaving a dent when I'm 80, is a little scary. But then that might be more of a fear over lack of control. All of us can control the strokes of our brush, and to leave something so huge out of our control might be scarier than the time part.
