I think we had a conversation about this before but it was more like if your parents supported you or not. Quite a revelation that thread was but I'm too lazy to find it in the old forum so if anyone's interested in finding it - be my guest.
From my experience, most people are pretty supportive if they find out I draw. If they aren't, I usually don't a crap what they think so it works out either way.

But so what?! now that they've done that, i'll just have to get so good that i'll be able to draw my manga at the same time as when i'm studying or working, that's it... case closed.
The only way people get in the way of my art life is that they unintentionally discourage me from trying something new. Most of the people in my life have appreciation for art, but only if they can understand it. If I go abstract or very fictional in my work I get those annoying "What IS that?" comments. Manga is usually good because the subjects are people, which they understand.
I couldnt find it ,, its probably before i joined :/

I don't want a future in art. Yet everyone that sees me doodling seems to think they have the right to tell me I shouldn't be pursuing a career in science and should just become an artist. :|
It actually really makes me angry.
(And I come from a family of artists, so they're all "D; Y U NO LUV US".)
It's like when people see a tall person NOT playing basketball and tell them they're wasting their talent. They don't even factor enjoyment into the picture.
