my parents don't really care & mostly it annoys me.

one day, i draw really good, i really like it, my friends also said it's good, but at that time, i hardly can draw
.
but u know what my parents said?

"Oh,"
.
.
THAT'S IT?! I'VE BEEN DRAWING FOR ALMOST 3 HOURS FOR THAT!!!!!!
nothing but "oh," ?

then the another one is in grade 7, last year.
I drew Medusa Gorgon from Soul Eater, it was great! I used drawing pen & i showed it to my parents!
but instead of a praiseful word, they said...
"You've grown & u don't need to continue drawing. you should go study for your incoming exams,"
.
huh whud? whud exams? as if u know i had exams! i just finished my exams!!
and drawing is not needed if we grown up? that's for you, but not for meh!

so, does your parents like that too?

ps. if this is double, lock it. i'm just doing this for boredom.

well I don't draw but i write it is almost the same
my parents do support it but as a hobby since it can't put food on my table
money isn't every thing but important though

No they are not, seriously, about around 1 years ago, i like to draw something based on picz, since i'm good with copying picture than drawing with my imagination. I draw something from my Ragnarok map (it seems like manga drawing xP), i draw it for the school project. And i get an A!
What do i get after i told my parent?
She said "Maybe the teacher pity you, so he gave you that score." >__> haha. so funny. Before, they say that i should quit drawing crap, i need to focuse on my studies.
After that i never show my draw to my parent >__>

Your parents should support whatever hobbies you pick up, drawing, music, sports, etc. I'd totally support my kid and let him do whatever he wanted if it's what he really wanted to do.

That is, unless he sucked. Then I'd tell him to find another hobby cause he's not cut out for for it.

i can relate very well..big part of my discouragement comes from my parents...
I always feel that my parents think that my drawing is a waste of time...they always ask me why i draw..?what's so good about it..?why am i wasting my pen,paper, and etc just to draw a figure? and when i ask for money for my art tools they would say art tools arent worth it to spend for,.and when i attend art seminars they would ask why am i indulging in such activities...so in short--they discouraged me till i got tired and quit. Now i do not join art organizations anymore.
im not blaming them.I am responsible for my decisions..but i actually feel lazy now..Im so left behind---i dont have the luxury to practice drawing since ive been busy with my other vices(jdoramas and computer ) and school.
my childhood dream is to become an animator...but now i want to be a director, so i have to choose which vices i should prioritize--jdoramas and computer owns.

sigh, what you need to understand is that just cause you found that it looked nice it doesnt mean that your parents found it any good. and they're not supporting your hopes and dreams, they're trying to get you to be as financially successful as possible.parenting is a 24 hr/7 days a week job, give em a break if they can't support EVERYTHING and ANYTHING you'll do

besides, drawing is a pretty damn annoying profession, unless you're extremely good and REALLY popular then you'll end up broke half the time.essentially its kinda like you're trying to fly....your parent' s arent impressed that you can flap your wings real fast cause more then likely its not happening.

besides with drawing you're more likely to enter an "artist's block" then writers do with theirs. i say so from experience, i used to be half decent since i was in the 3rd-4th grade all the way up to middle school but you'll quickly run out of things to draw and inspiration. that and coupled with other shit you have to do you'll end up just doing doodles in your free time.

~you're 13! forget your parent's affection >.> grow into your rebellious phase already!

They try to support it. But I know deep down inside, all they care about is the money and how much I make. Anyway, I came to my own senses and realized drawing doesn't bring in much cash. Unless you're lucky or extremely good with a brilliant style like no other has. Drawing is great, but I'll keep it as a hobby.
