This literally took a year to draw. Should take about 6 months more to finish,assuming I have the patience. Please critique and rate out of 100 maybe?

>just turn 29
>have not reached all my art goals and dreams

I graduated 8 years ago from a school that specialized in comics because I thought that was what I wanted to do. Since I graduated, I moved back with parents and couldn't find much work in comics or illustration. Add the pressure of finding an actual job from my parents, and my drive to produce art went into a downward spiral. 3 years after graduating, I got a job at a slot game company as a production artist. It wasnt what I wanted to do but it was a comfy job and I could produce art on the side. 2 years into my job, I was commissioned to do storyboards for a cartoon series pitched to Nickelodeon. It was never greenlit, but I've grown a passion for it and realized my true calling should be storyboarding for animation. Unfortunately I got laid off from my slot game job almost 2 years ago. Ive been trying to find a new job, but I decided to go back to college to earn a Bachelor's degree to make me more employable. I figured I'd utilize this time to build a Storyboard portfolio.
I've gotten a few local storyboard freelance jobs here and there, but I really want to storyboard for the animation industry.

Unfortunately I'm already 29, and my boyfriend says I need to be more realistic about my career at this age. Is it really too late to achieve this dream? What can I do to make it more possible? I have some 2nd connections to some animation professionals on LinkedIn, but I'm not sure how to approach them.

Advice?

IF YOU ARE A /BEG/INNER IN ART, please use this thread to post pieces for critique or ask for advice. We should not have to make new threads or post in the Drawthread with our fundamental exercises.

Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, do not give up, make someone proud.

RESIZE YOUR IMAGES TO ~1000 PIXELS:

#1)
>screenshot the image and post that instead

#2)
>change camera capture settings to something smaller

#3)
>send to computer and resize in MSPaint

? ?
There's a new (and cleaner) sticky in town! You can see it at:

TRY TO BE MORE ACTIVE AND GIVE PEOPLE SOME FEEDBACK - many studies are left unreplied, which is a bit sad and can be quite demotivating for the people that try their best to improve, but are left directionless.

Just remember: "Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do."

1 Track Grind

No.3608518 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Grinding one thing until you're gud.

Is such a thing practical? Have you done it?

Examples:
>Reproducing every drawing from an artbook.
>Animating every scene of a movie.
>Drawing every muscle to learn anatomy.
etc

The idea is' instead of grinding fundies/ figure drawing daily you simple grind something you have an interest in over and over until you get gud.
