This fills me with despair as an artist. What's even the point in trying to improve and say something when people who just make something like this get accepted because, bluntly, they're rich and have connections?>inb4 anon just make your art shittier you should be glad they lowered the bar for you
I didn't get into this to half ass it, I got into this because I wanted to try, I wanted to give it effort to make something beautiful. I shouldn't be fucking feeling this, I'm employed at a studio, I'm in the industry, I made it, but looking at this just makes me feel so defeated. If all the effort in the world doesnt matter, if all the chances are going to be given to these post ironic neo sincerity trust fund hipsters with no passion or vision, then why am I even here anymore?
I'm going to fucking quit and be a stock broker or something.
