I'm pretty young and learning to do art and have aspirations to try and draw out a story (or at least some pretty pictures) and obviously have many more years to go, but I was always wondering, is there a certain level or threshold you have to make in order for your work to be considered worthwhile to people?
I'd say I can hold my own writing a story and plot, its not kindergarten level, but definitely not on par with some other authors and cartoonists out there. I'm more concerned about the actual quality of illustrations.
Is there a certain "rule of thumb" or criteria that should generally be met before you consider doing things seriously? Do I need credentials, or to have several years of study and college education behind me?
I'm only worried because I wouldn't want to embarrass myself or willfully put out content that is "trashy" or "bad", I know its a pretty vague question and doesn't help that you don't know much about me but some insight on this would help ease my mind.
