Should I just give up? Empty Should I just give up?

I went around The Spritas today. Looking at cool animations, characters, and a lot of other things. Then I put on KH2's Dearly Beloved and just relaxed and let my mind and thoughts flow and I set my mind of spriting. I don't know... Suddenly I had gotten back my drive for spriting in the last few days. Something I lost a year ago. But now, I'm not too sure I should go through with animating. I finished one of my Kirby FCs and a LSWi FC. I looked at them and I thought "are they even good? Are they even creative? How do I know for sure that I'll animate them well or they'll be good characters? Will people like them?" So many thoughts. A year ago, I went with trying to animate without FCs. I knew if I practiced, I'd get better. But I just stopped. I want to be an animator, an artist, maybe even a game designer. But, I just don't know if I should start spriting or if I'm even cut out for it. I can't even make my own good sprite character. They seem so rushed, unoriginal, bad movesets, etc. I can't make a good FC for my life. I want to make so many characters with cool powers and abilties and story and everything. I want to make my own SERIES. But I don't think I could do that with spriting nor do I think I could do that with anything else... Do you guys think I should continue? I'm not asking you guys to baby me or feel bad, but can you give me your thoughts and advice? I got my drive back, and now I'm not too sure anymore... Should I just give up? Sad

Lemme translate this post in boxing terms.

Man, throughout the whole year I spent most of my time trying to improving my slipping(dodge) and rolling(duck) but it's like whenever I see myself in the mirror doing I think, Whats the point of this? I practice all day, always sparring and just end up getting my ass kicked. I want to be a pro one day, but I don't know, it feels like none of the punches I throw are any good. Do you guys think I should continue?


Well kid, if you wanna be a pro one day. Quit feeling sorry for yourself and keep practicing. If your going to set a goal and your dedicated to achieving that goal then keep practicing your slipnrolls and jabs, quit your whining and quit quitting. Because if your tired of restarting all the time, then stop quitting.

Its funny how the person named Goku is asking this.
You shouldn't give up. I mean if you don't like it anymore then why continue of course. But if you enjoy it and wish to get better then don't give up. Honestly i don't even wanna quit spriting i'm just too lazy to ever do anything. Its fun but i'm a lazy SOB.

LOL. "Goku? Giving up!? IMPOSTER!" xD
Thanks, guys, for setting me straight a bit. You\'re too kind 
Sorry if I sounded like a whiny loser. Very Happy Funny. Some of my favorite animators responded. Surprised
I enjoy animating and want to animate. But I guess it's because I couldn't come up with any original characters or fun and cool ideas and I thought nobody would be impressed or like my work. But I have to face reality. It may be challenging seeing as how I'll have school, my gaming channel, and my personal life in the way. But hey, I'll try my best and keep at it! Expect to see an awesome animations from me one day! Uh-huh (Love this Itachi emotion)

Vegeta:"HAHAHA Kakarot it seems I was right about you being nothing more than a lower class saiyan, you're not even worth the dirt on my foot, giving up so easily. You're an insult to saiyans everywhere with that attitude. Now pull yourself together, killing you like this will be no fun."

don't give up supportive stuff and what not.

You shouldn't give up, though if you see that you just don't enjoy it and just feel like you're doing it for fame and what not, you should stop. don't trick yourself into thinking you like it for someone else.
