A few days ago I experienced a very uneasy and insidious reality check regarding to what it takes to be a storyboard artist, by an acquaintance whom we share a mutual friend. 

It's no secret that my pride and feelings were hurt from the bombardment of [generic] criticism that had every intention to be constructive. Leaving me with more questions than answers.

In the end, I felt like all my hard work in the past year were all for not and I'm still 50 steps behind. 

So after shedding a few tears, wallowing in the self-destructive monologue of "What the hell have you been doing all this time? All those hours you wasted on comics, fancomics, even; were a complete waste of time." with myself. I got mad.

Mad at the lecture, the criticism, and the fact I let my ego become inflated. And for what? followers? favorites? attention? acknowledgement? What a fool I've been.

Now that I've been thrown off the high horse and back into the mud, it's time to hike back up again.
Too tired to stay up, but too wired with self-doubt to sleep.

Sitting on this burning question: Am I good enough?
