"According to a recent magazine article (via 2ch), which details Oda’s schedule, the famed manga artist still goes to bed at 2am and gets up at 5am. That’s three hours of sleep! Everyday! Without a day off! Holy fuck that’s a rough schedule."
"here’s how his weekly schedule looks: From Monday to Wednesday, Oda works on the story, the dialogue, and uses very very rough sketches to work out the flow of the manga. Then, from Thursday to Saturday, he and his assistants begin the actual drawing. On Sunday, they do any color work that’s necessary, such as the kind of images you see on manga covers."

Getting a "real job"

What is with the mentality here that getting a 9-5 is giving up? How do you live if you just draw all day and aren't good enough to make a career out of it yet?
I want to make a career with art, but I'm 22 years old and a college graduate who didn't study art related things, so I'm looking for a job. Do those of you who refuse to get a job just live at your parents' house and have them buy all of your food? I'm broke and miserable, I need a job so that I can LIVE, and then I will work on art with all of the time I have outside that job.
It's unrealistic to sit in your room and draw all day and not make any money to be self-sufficient. It's your own fault for not drawing more when you were a kid. If you're an adult now, it's time to act like one, and work your ass off in your free time.

Extension from >>2246704
Design a character for a survival horror game.
Platform: We'll be releasing the game on PC, PS4 and XBOX one.
Visual style: Photorealistic with about 20% styling/exaggeration. Think Indiana Jones, larger than life. Cinematography is on the style of Sleepy Hollow (1998 film) http://evanerichards.com/2009/1355
Gameplay style: 3rd person action/adventure with exploration and shooting. Ref gears of war, resident evil 4/5/6, uncharted series, Tomb Raider, the evil within.
Setting: Dilapidated house in and alternate version of the 1945 in war torn France. The house is connected to a complex with underground nazi labs where experiments are being done in humans and animals. The environment/ architecture is a mix of art deco and googie architecture, run down from constant bombings from allied forces.
Protagonist: Allied war prisoner, french, about 30 years old. Beaten up and exhausted. No exceptional skills except some military training, slightly above average joe thrown in a situation over his head. Moved by instinct of surviving and escaping the nightmare he's in. Starts the game without any kind of weapon or equipment.
Design requirements: Since we don't want to overload the screen with UI, the character should have equipment and weapons visible at all times on the character model. The standard loadout is a melee weapon, small arm and rifle. Loadout can be changed at checkpoints or by switching guns when picking them up throughout the level. Loadout never exceeds one of each categories (one melee, one handgun, one rifle).
