Its even harder to be a mechanical designer like Syd Mead & Kunio Okawara .... Im better at drawing machines than people ...... But as said in many of the comments ,we all get a lot of rejection before weget the job & practice makes perfect just fusit with some original concepts
That sums it up well.
it's v hard. Do some research into animation of the likes of Hiyao Miyazaki (of Spirited Away, Ponyo and Arrietty fame), and see how long it takes to create just one scene.... I've drawn some anime inspired art in the past and the effort that goes into these drawings in the long run I suppose is worth it, but you've also got to look at the fact that anime has become a very popular animation style, and a lot of people use it nowadays. I think it's better to try and find your own style, and work from there.

I hope you enjoy. I'm still learning. Best of luck!
It used to be, until I discovered how much time and effort goes into it. Before you start thinking about anime or manga drawing, take some life art courses to learn how to properly proportion your people/settings. I'm happy drawing on the side, but I don't think I would like to do it full time because then it wouldn't be as much fun as it is to do now :)
I'd imagine it would be hard yes.
Nope, i'm a terrible drawer. The whole style is very cool though.
It's extremely hard!!!! My goal is to become an artist and become a anime/manga drawer! :D
