what if i have a set goal to what im trying to reach my art style to, but havent quite reached it yet? for example having a set image in my mind knowing the way to draw it but when i do, its completely different from what i pictured. like my mind wonders once my pencil touches the paper. does that make me a sell out? or a really bad case of A.D.D?
I think the key is to find a way to make money doing what you love. That way, your never really a sell out. To me, being a sell out is doing something you hate or dislike simply for money. Just because people pay good money for what you do and maybe even offer suggestions on what you should do doesn't necessarily make one a sell-out. Also, I find that when ever someone does crappy work after being successful, they are called a sell out. To me... that's not being a sell out...its just being lazy. Success can breed laziness. Lord knows...if I was a huge success... I'd be sipping Margaritas poolside and not doing art today LOL.
