The stuff that artists go through.
There are so many pro's and con as to being an artist, professional or as a hobby. 
It feels nice to be able to express yourself through something you make and when that something turns out to be looking good we get this sense of accomplishment. 
Most of the time though there are bad feelings mixed with the good ones.
:bulletblue: Not being understood. Those moments where your friends or family does not understand that you have to desire to be alone and work on your art. Those copious amounts of hours you spend working and they wonder why you wouldn't rather be outside relaxing in the sun or hang out with your friends.
The only people who will ever fully understand this are other artists or simply very understandable people. It's important they they will eventually understand so there wont be any hurt feelings. Try to explain ti as calmly and rational as you can, perhaps with using examples in terms they would understand.

HelenGomez's Profile Picture
Helen Gomez
Artist | Professional | Varied
United Kingdom
Self-taught street caricaturist, with smatterings of work in logo design, character design, comic book illustration and 24 hour comics and lighting design, as well as fine art when the mood takes me. Does some personal and business commissions. Have a lot to say about graphic novels, art theory, art history and the art world in general. I work full time and fit in art and advancing my artsy skills (making that great leap from traditional to digital) in around my 9-5 office life.
