To be able to pay my bills with it. That would mean being able to comfortably concentrating on working with the things I enjoy the most. Illustrating a field guide would be one of the single nicest things I can think of creating.
Honestly, I'd love to do anything in the art field. I wanted concept design for a long time because nothing needs to have that 'finished' look and you get to draw a lot of random objects like lamps and trash cans while creating strange settings for whatever it is you are doing the concepts for. Now I am leaning towards artbook or making a comic and it's a far off dream of mine to work on Spider-Man doing the lines or the coloring or anythingggg. xD Day by day, my most important goal is to improve, so one day when I have the chance to work on Spider-man I'll be ready!
Right now I want to become an art teacher, sorta. I'm not really sure what I want to do. I really want to make awesome hand drawn animations but, I don't think I have the level of skill that it takes for what i'd like to do. It can be frustrating.. so for now, i can only get better and better.
as for now i am trying to form an association to form an artist and craft makers community using resources of my small company, within the next 6 years... but as of my own art skills?? having the time to catch up where i left and improve that would be nice...
Oooh. That's a toughy XD There's multiple ones on the list I want to accomplish, mainly participating in making a game and to make my own comic b: I mainly just really like making stuff though (art things mostly). I think at the moment I just want to finish one of my personal projects @___@
I want to become a music composer. I view it as a type of writing so... xD Like I want to write pieces for symphonies, and travel the world conducting my masterpieces, and when little kids in band class hear my name, they think, "Hey, I really like that piece we played by her!"
Geeez just right now I've realized I have too many goals??
Create an artbook Create a comic-book (and lots of doujinshis) Become a storyboard artist Become an 2D/3D animator/modeler And after many, many, many years... Becoming an art teacher... Although I'm rly awkward but i'm trusting the years to fix that... Somehow. orzzzzz
GAH, I want to do so many of those options. Simply creating more and better art is a great goal, but a little too short minded and generic for anyone who wants to do this for a living. Truly I want to be an animator, but I love to do storyboards as well. Ugh, such a tough question to answer. Really it's all the above with the exception of being a teacher.
I want to be a good enough artist that I can support myself through freelance alone. But I'm not really sure if that would be possible for someone like me... my sister works for a scrapbooking company and she seems pretty well off. I hope that I can find a job I love (that supports me)
To turn at least one of my story ideas into a novel; to improve at drawing so I can draw my own characters well and have them turn out like they're SUPPOSED to look; to learn as many crafts as I can so I can make cool gifts for my friends ^^ I guess overall I want to challenge myself and enjoy bringing those things in my mind to life!
Creation in and of itself are my ultimate goals. Skill levels comes with practice. As does renown.
There are millions of fantastic artists out there, but one of me. I may not be a great artist, but I'm the only one with my imagination and artistic vision. So, the ultimate goal is to produce more art. Plain and simple.
To keep improving. Whatever else comes with that along the way (a job doing what I love that helps me to keep improving, art books, comic books, collaborating with other artists, etc.) is welcomed but never necessary for happiness. As long as I can keep doing what I'm doing and make progress, I'll be happy. (But a cabin in the woods sounds amazing and that will probably happen somewhere down the line, haha)
I have basically no coding knowledge, and even after years of trying to learn I still never figured out how to make my own game engine. So, in order to tell the story I've been working on for about 12 years, I'm putting it in novel form. I just hope it is as well received.
I'd like to be a concept artist for games and movies! Storyboards and comics would just be the icing on the cake. Though story boarding is definitely a goal of mine, I haven't done much research into what it actually entails.
I would just like to get to the part where I'm able to draw what's in my mind flawlessly and then just doodle pages upon pages.. and maybe also make a wee comic. But it's more about being able to draw whatever visual comes to mind.
