What makes us not work on 2D/3D?
I clearly adore creation of art and art itself. I have infinite amount of respect towards this craft (preproduction, modeling, texturing, animation). I always think of things I could make or what I've could've tried. In my eyes 3D is above most of other crafts but I still like things like traditional drawing or clay sculpting.
But I don't do it! I find any excuse to not do it. I won't go into much details but here are my questions. I have some experience working on 2D/3D but I find complete lack of longevity in this.
-It is possible that I only adore observing things like production and result of artist?
-Can I develop interest into making art?
-How much resistence do you have between you and finishing an art piece?
-Did your interest changed towards what you're doing now with time?
-How you adjust your lifestyle to work best with making art?
At first I had much larger text, with too many question. But this should be enough for a good discussion so people can share their opinion on this topic and share any experinces

>It is possible that I only adore observing things like production and result of artist?
Yep. That's called being a consumer.
>Can I develop interest into making art?
Highly subjective. You can try to nurture passion and interest, but there's close to zero guarantee of it blossoming.
>How much resistence do you have between you and finishing an art piece?
Procrastination, external distractions (life, schooling, work, family, etc.), lack of technical skill. But, most severe is probably passion once again. If you don't have the drive to complete what you set out to do, it probably won't ever get finished.
>Did your interest changed towards what you're doing now with time?
They'll always change. Even day by day. Some days I can spend hours fooling around in whatever software I want to, some days I don't even feel like turning on my computer.
>How you adjust your lifestyle to work best with making art?
Like the developing interest question, this is an equally subjective matter. The best I can really say is "experiment until you find what works best". Some people are able to work countless hours per day, while others burn out too quickly attempting the same.

I can tell you're just overthinking things too much. If you're looking into beginning 3D, just remember this: it doesn't have to be your life. Many people do it as a hobby. And about your whole "I don't do it!" thing, it's the same as learning another language, playing an instrument, hell, even asking the girl you like for a date. You just gotta pull the trigger. If it doesn't work for you, then so be it. Passing interests develop in all of us from time to time.

You aren't.
None of you are.
You should all give up now.

>How to find out if you're an artist?
If you´re making this question, you aren´t one.

tl;dr

What makes you an artist is that you love doing art and constantly improve.
