I hear you. It's like I'm a different person and I see all these artists passing me by and I wish I could jump right in but I'm focused on healing now and that takes all my energy.First off the PTSD has destroyed my creativity....:cry:.
I'd say I'm really a dancer, I've always been good with movement. I used to engage in dance/movement practices A LOT until two years ago when I became afraid to be alive:/
I'm hoping to get back into it but it's quite acrobatic and I'm 35!!
I've always done artistic things, and other people called me an artist, but I never thought of myself as one, for that reason "I'm not good enough to call myself that" Then I watched "Turning The Art World Inside Out" and someone said "An artist is someone who HAS to get something out. And image, words, music, it's in them, and it has to come out." or something like that....and now I'm hoping it actually was in that movie... either, way, I like that sentiment, and then I'm like, I totally am an artist! It doesn't matter if what I do isn't traditional art, or good; I like it, I like to do it, it has to come out!I voted yes though I hesitate to call myself an artist. I'm just not good enough yet to earn that title! However, I'm learning computer animation, 3d modeling, and creative writing. I wanna have a one-man game studio one day. :)
