Seems like they just don't like you drawing digitally, if you want to get their approval, then draw something that traditional arts can't. I can't help you much, my lines always end up squiggling whenever I draw digitally.
oh I think I can understand you.. I do a lot kinds of art and it is a really big part of my life but my parents aren't interested too. They are mostly angry because they think I should help them more with the holshold instead of painting or anything, that's really sad Even my mother thinks that the computer do everything if yo work digital, but I can only say that you shoulnīt care about that! There are two things you can do (I think) 1. You can try to speack with your parents about this problem. Try to say that this hobby is a part of you and makes you happy and that you like to make them happy too! 2. Try to ignore it. (what I do, because the talk with my parents did nothing...) Donīt show them your work and find other persons who like to support you! Maybe your best friends, the community here or your boyfriend, what ever donīt stop to be proud on yourself!!
I think is right, with the meaning of digital art.. itīs really an age thing! Maybe the digital work is really a bit easier, but there are more options you can do only digital and I thing that makes it really interesting!
So, be proud on yourself! Your art is great! I really hope that this advise can help you and sorry for my bad english, I hope you can understand what i've like to say ^_^
no problem and thank you so much for the llama! I even think thatīs a bad thing too. My parents act in many other situations like this and this makes me sad so I can understand your deplore :/ I hope you can make the best out of it, and have a nice christmas
It could be worse. Be glad there are people out there who support your work, and if your parents don't want to be those people--that's their problem/loss. I know people who have to hide their art from their parents because they would hate it to the point of potentially burning it. (There isn't even adult content in their art, it's just big cats and wolves and whatnot.) Be glad they don't try to stop you from expressing yourself.
They probly don't understand the skills and techniques it requires to create digital art so maybe find it difficult to appreciate your work.But at the end of the day its doing something that makes you happy that matters.
My grandparents can't grasp what is it that I do (I'm in 2D animation), they always tell me 'Why won't you pursue something real'... My advice would be just to let go and focus on your art... Focus on what you love to do, do your best and don't give up... If your parents come around - great, if not - it's not the end, it shouldn't make you unhappy
