= .=;... so a day or two ago I was trying to make plans to split money to buy a bjd. I was going to buy a cheap one at first, just for practice. Anyway that aside, my friend attacked me. Telling me it was a useless hobby. I told her that I wanted to be a talented face up artist. Because I already draw lots of faces anyway. Might as well use a 3d canvas. She kept saying BJDs are not art, and how it's not original that I am buying a ready made sculpt to paint on it. That the concept of art is now distorted. I know those things are not true. And I know that giving money for charity according to my friend's suggestion is a good thing and all. But I don't know how to react to her opinions. =_= Like dolls should only be for kids. Getting dolls to show them off is vain. >_> Photography isn't art. All these reactions how do you counteract them. If your friend looked at you like you were lesser because of a hobby you didn't even pursue yet. How would you deal with it.
