If you draw well maybe you should broaden what you draw.One pic isn't gonna appeal to everyone in addition to that it's better to be a well rounded artist that someone who is a one trick pony. That doesn't mean you can't have a favorite medium because mine is pencil but it helps significantly that I can paint, draw, scuplt, and etc. Yes my parents support my drawing but I have other talents also.basically don't limit yourself to just one thing.

this topic is where i love my family even more! XD
they're really awsome about appreciating my artwork. (and i loove drawing)
i could be working really hard on a drawing, and i don't even have to show it to them, and they'll all be like:
"ooh, that's really nice!" or "how long did that take you?" or "that's beautiful! can i have it?"
and when i say yes...
they embarrass me by putting it in their living room or showing anyone who enters the house...
but, i love how supportive they are. make me feel good.
yet, they do remind me that they don't want me being a artist when i grow up. i'm fine with that.

no, I think my parents did not see my real potential..

They know I can draw but says nothing about it..
they don't even know I can sing well

maybe its because I am not close to my parents and I am not actually good in verbalizing my feelings..

I can draw anything, but of course I mainly draw Anime, but it annoys me to hell when they say "Why give them such huge eyes? Why is the pupil so big?" Its THE STYLE!! I like putting my drawings on the fridge door whether they like it or not.

I can't draw but my brother can and mmy mum always tells him to apply the amount of time and dedication he gives to drawing to his studies. As one of his subjects is art, she has to support him, but once he stops doing that she's gonna come down on him hard that its a waste of time.
I wish I could draw

Yeah I guess my parents do...my dad would say something like "Thats really good and it's in pen too!" or he would send me stuff about drawing tips when I'm having a problem. I guess my mom trys to support me she says like "oh.. yeah" or "thats good".

I'm a writer. When I show them some of my short stories, they mostly go "Abby you are such a good writer! Ever thought of publishing this?!" but most of the time it's just a "meh". And sometimes I feel hurt by their words, but hey that's business for you.

What can I say? I'm a writer in progress. At least I don't suck.

to do you best and never give up so you can prove to them that you are the best.

At the beginning NO because my drawings sucked (And I really believed that they were nice). Then I improved a lot and it was a different story. They won't let me have art classes though... and they still don't support me wanting to study design, specially mom

They hate it just because manga is Japanese? -_- My mom doesn't like Japan, because of the war and etc... so stupid.

meh, my parents are probably the odd one out eh? =/

I'm sure, IF I could draw; my parents wouldn't mind TOO much if i used that talent as a career (long as there's some kind of university degree to go along with it.)

but unfortunately; JUST like my parents =_=;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; (IT'S GENETICS I TELL YOU! GENETICS!)

=_=; I can't draw for my LIFE. =_=;;;;

.__.; they also support whatever 'three-minute-hot' (chinese saying) hobbies i come up with >_>; which; most of the time; i lose interest; fast...>_>;;;;;;

come to think of it; my parents rule~~~ (and i'm not really using this 'advantage' of mine to good use eh?)
