Being an artist takes talent and hard work. if you don't have talent you are probably gonna be working very hard.

Being an "artist" is actually in the eye of the beholder. You paint, you sculpt, you act, whatever. Calling yourself an "artist" is hubris - for all I know you take shits on the sidewalk, take instagrams of it, and call it "art."

There are many fields of study where creativity and non-linear thinking are useful. In that sense painting and investment banking aren't that different.

In other words - create something others find valuable and you'll earn a living. Nobody owes you shit because you like to draw (or buy stocks.)

A couple of those are actually pretty close to the truth it's just doubtful they would describe it that way

People make fun of artists a lot but at the end of the day the good ones have talent and work hard. Gotta respect that.

People who call themselves artists when all they do is abstract work with just meaningless shapes that you cannot make anything out at all from. Honestly I think the artists that made art like that in past were idiots too. Pic related, it's bullshit.

**sketchysketchist rolled a random image posted in comment #5476558 at Bronysexuals **    
I think the majority of artists agree that abstract art is just an excuse to tell people that they don't like it because they don't get it which is total bullcrap.   
Art doesn't have to be straight forward, but it can still show that the artist is a competent artist.   
Look at surrealism. You know what you're looking at because of all the detail, but you don't know what it all means and why the artist drew this which actually makes you think even though it's not meant to make sense.    
While abstract art is just some random pattern that is the equivalent of children's finger painting yet we're told it should sell.

One thing a lot of people don't realize is that everything man-made required art in some form to create. Weather it be a simple webpage, the pepsi logo, or a t-shirt. Art is a part of everything.

Yaaaay, time to be a unique and beautiful snowflake made of piss and be the devils' advocate.   
   
See, the problem is that nowadays people get paid depending on how important the job is and how difficult it was to obtain your position. So, who do you think would be paid more by this system? The guy who had perfect grades in order to make it into med school, where he studied for 4 years, studied another 2 to specialize and had to work as an intern for another couple of years before he became a surgeon oooooooooor the guy with natural talent who went to 3 years of art school? Heck, if we're going with the example in the second pic, the artist didn't even do that much. They're just drawing shit online.   
   
Another major difference is that you'll never hear someone tell their kid "NO! You're not becoming a doctor. You'll be a damn artist and you'll like it.". Gee, I wonder why. Could it be because people actually enjoy being artists and it's not as nerve-wrecking as a surgeon or lawyer who could fuck up someones' life when they mess up?   
   
See, saying that someone should be paid more, just because you like the job or saying that someone else is being paid too much, just because you don't like it is just as unfair as the treatment artist get.

I think artist's are under rated for the work they put in and how good the quality of it is as well. It's just that jobs pay more depending on how 'needed' it is, honestly we don't 'need' pretty pictures.

When I studied art at school I was told I was talented and good but that was only because I spent every free moment of my time drawing. People who are good enough to make a standard living off art need to have that commitment, plus talent. Art is different to other professions because only the best make it anywhere, there's no room for mediocrity.

The main difference between artists and every other professions is that some few artists gets paid a shit ton of money (and fame) while other artists get nothing.

But when we're talking about professions like surgeons, most of them get paid the same.

Making money from any kind of art is like opening a buisness, you can't really rely on it.
User avatar #49 - kuraithevision (08/17/2013) [-]
Being a graduate in fine arts major, I consider this pretty low for someone to compare an artist to a doctor, lawyer, or scientist. As far as I know, I'm getting medical attention, justice, and someone out there is constantly doing research and discovering cures. Their purpose impacts society far more greatly than an artist. My self-expression may or may not impact or inspire someone, but it certainly isn't providing them with health care or helping them with their problems. As far as a successful businessman goes, they are more passionate about what they are selling, not whether they are selling. Only the most passionate artists are truly successful. Trying to sell out to mainstream society does not make one a good artist. Just someone trying to make money the way they think is easy.

what do people think an artist is, someone who dropped out high school, has poor skills, and sales paintings online?
there are people who do that sure but that is like a hobby for some artist.
It might be hard to believe but art is very complex and wide range, some get paid really well for 2 hour of their time, no joke i seen a guy get paid 200$ for a job that took him 2 HRS.
we need art for sure: music, decoration, packaging, clothing, and more
User avatar #151 to #150 - GnRNoD (08/17/2013) [-]
Very good comment and all anon, but you left me wondering, how does anyone need art for packaging?

It's ok guys. We're living in grass huts, people die if they as much as get a paper cut, there's nothing we can do to stop crime and we're killing eachother over bottle caps, since there's no economy left, but at least we still have art, because we all know it's just as important.
User avatar #95 - Loppytaffy (08/17/2013) [-]
I'm not an artist for the money, as such I will never set up anyway to recieve money for my work. I want people to enjoy it, feedback on it, be a part of it.
That's what art is about. If I want money, I'll get a job, not exploit my hobby.

There's people who make cool stuff and make people laugh, and THEN there's the people who keep up the infrastructure, economy, and well being of the world. So tell me which should be paid more?
Assuming this is a snarky comic about "starving" artists. If not, carry on

Coming from a professional musicians perspective it's not so much who should get paid more. More like who should get paid.

inb4 artfags thumbing me down:

I think that while the Arts and Humanities may be worthwhile endeavors, that the Math and Sciences are more labor intensive on the brain.

Think about it... any of the above professions could probably relax on their offtime by enjoying (or sometimes even creating) art, or reading literature humanities students study for their dissertations.

Have you ever met an artist who came back from sculpting and starting working calculus problems? For fun?

And secondly you don't NEED fancy Art or English Degrees to establish some competency in the Arts of Humanities. Scientists could probably teach those classes (most have had college level A AND H courses), but most A and H majors could not teach math and science.

To bad that to be an artist you dont need to do shit really, but to be a doctor, a lawyer, a scientist, you need to go through very expensive university for years.

Except those 4 are probably more useful to the world, therefore worth paying. No offense to artists, art is still an important thing but a doctor is more useful to me than a pretty picture when I'm ill.

#183 to #83 - sympathyforme (08/17/2013) [-]
Like I said, art is important but the person who created this content feels like they offer something more important than the people they've drawn. I disagree.

"Science would never have even gone into areas like space without literature asking whats it's like."

I disagree, I believe that even before written language existed, man looked up at the sky and wanted to know more, it's human nature to expand and innovate, it had nothing to do with art.

Also the 3DS is nothing like holograms, it's just a progression of 3D technology, which began in 1890, long before holograms were a thing.
