Excuse me? I think I'M the freak here, honey, so you don't have to worry about that. ^__^ If you want to draw, then do it! There's nothing in the universe that can hold you back!
Why don't you draw tiny, adorable black panther cubs?

You are not a freak :( I always draw all the time and it relieves stress, loneliness and all negative thoughts. Don't say you're a freak, it is just like saying "Drawing is for freaks" and it is definitely NOT like that :( ART is your life as far as i can tell. Don't stop drawing because it would mean giving up all you wanted, all you are and your life itself. Think a bit more positive on this :)

I've been drawing since I was a toddler. I can't go a day without drawing something, or imagining something for me to write about.
You are not a freak just because you're an artist. Artists are imaginative people who come up with so many new things.
Without creativity and art, Earth would be extremely boring.

If Hidekaz Himaruya stopped doing what he loved more than anything in the world because some people told him he'd never make it, we wouldn't have hetalia!
If Yoshitaka Amano did the same thing, there wouldn't be Final Fantasy!
If Thomas Edison stopped inventing stuff 'cause people thought he was weird, WE WOULD HAVE NO LIGHT.
Don't give up on your dreams, please keep going like these people did! All these other comments are right, as long as you approach your dream logically and with a plan, you can make it come true! So appreciate your god-given talent even when other people don't, and go do the things you want to do :) I'm pretty sure ALL of DA is on your side considering we're all artists just like you! Good luck!

you are not a freak for liking art. here, we are the majority and so because you love art you are not an abnormality. and if your father doesn't want to accept that you are an artist, i can think of one thing that may appease him somewhat: get a back-up degree in college in case you can't make it in the art field.
I want to be a proffesional musician, but both my parents are afraid I'll crash and burn and end up homeless/in debt/begging on the streets. but I talked to them and they said they would feel safer if i had some kind of back up plan or field i can go into. that may help him feel better, and maybe even you too. finding a balance between art, which has a more uncertain future, and something you can rely on a bit more may just be enough to help you make a living with what you love.
and i would love a picture from you <3

oh my, i totally get you...people say, "if you wanna get a job, do something that's related to your interest, so that your job won't feel like a job and u enjoy it"..i enjoy drawing, but my family : my mum mostly, thinks that artist doesn't have a bright future, so in University, i took a course that is not related to my interest at all...and now that i've(just) graduated, i don't know what to do with my current knowledge, because i honestly do-not-have-any-interest(may just tiny bit) with the course i took...i sort of rejected any job offers/opportunities in front of me...

"If you want to be happy -- be. -- Oscar Wilde

Therefore, if you want to be an artist, go ahead. Nobody's going to tie your hands. In the end, you should't care what anybody thinks, even your parents. If you're still young, it is too early for you to worry about something like this. If you're old enough, you have your own life and nobody can tell you what to be.

Being a freak for art is called TALENT. It'd be a pity to let it go to waste.

Well, post it here, on DeviantArt. Be bold, courageous. It's your dream, your life, your choices. And maybe, post a link with your account here. I mean, look around, everyone here it's trying to show their form of art. I know people who got a job after posting on this site.

You're not a freak, you're a kid with a much healthier hobby than others. And your talent is a gift, you should be proud and happy that you have it! :D

Well think about it like this. Once you turn 18 no one can control your life. In fact, no one should control your life now. THIS IS YOUR LIFE. IF YOU ARE GOING TO WASTE IT DOING THINGS YOU DON'T LOVE THEN YOU'VE JUST WASTED THE ONCE CHANCE YOU HAVE FOR CHANGE.

I am Catholic and once I die, I either go to Heaven or Hell forever. That is the last change I'll ever get. The rest is either complete suffering or complete happiness. You only get life once. Use it. Because after this, after life, there is nothing, no challenges or maybe too much.

Consider yourself an art freak, freak taking the definition of "fanatic" or "enthusiast" or slang for a "non-conformist." That's the problem with the artists of this world. We want so much, and we do so much, and we strive harder than anybody else, and they tell us that we can't. Not gonna lie, art is a hard thing to make a living off of, particularly drawing, I'm a photographer so it's a little easier for me, but even still there are a lot of artists out there.
I can't tell you how to make your dream come true, but don't give up on it
The only thing I can really tell you is to have a backup plan, I have about three just in case, but never give up on drawing even if it isn't your job

Unfortunately not everyone gets support for what they want to do...but hey! Have a look around. We're all artists here, so at the very least, we don't consider you a freak.

I've heard/seen a lot of people say discouraging things like, "Oh, you want to be an artist? Have fun working a low-end job for the rest of your life", but don't let that stop you.

I can relate, and I'm sure a lot of others here can--if I didn't have art, I don't know what I'd do. Just keep at it, and you'll get there one day!

Hey secret teller, I have a prompt for you to draw: Draw the person you want your future self to be. Keep it with you as a reminder of that wish of yours. Don't care for what your father thinks and listen to your heart. I'm telling you this because I know your position. My father wanted me to be an engineer or a doctor, but am going to start Uni in the summer for an Animation degree.

I wish you so much luck and all the best you can have.

You are not a freak for loving to draw, it is great that you love to draw. Your dad should accept that. I understand that is hard to find a stable, good job in art, but with enough searching and practicing, I am sure you can find a good job in art.
