Hopefully, not another "intense discussion" (aka: argument).

Honestly while reading that, I kept thinking about Ghostbusters, "Are you the Gate Keeper?"

I can definitely agree with this post. For a long time I thought I wasn't good enough. I worked as a letterer and production artist for a long time, but didn't have the guts to show my writing to editors. A writer I worked with sent my stuff in to one of our editors and he offered me a short prose story on the spot.

Outside of comics, I didn't think my coding and rigging skills were that great, but a friend forwarded a link to my demo reel to the studio I always talked about working at. They offered me a job on the spot and I've been with em now for 5 months.

Put your stuff out there. You won't be in any worse position than you are now.

I always agree with putting yourself out there. Either you are good enough and people will take notice eventually OR you'll get some good feedback (if you're willing to listen) and can make improvements that you might otherwise not have known to make.

Hey, Vartemis. Thanks for reading! That's a great story and a solid point to go with it.
