i'm an art college student working to try and get into the entertainment industry somehow, either in movies, tv, animation, comics, or videogames. mostly i want to be one of those people who you could see in the credits of some grand piece of entertainment media if you happened to pause at the right moment. to just give a worthwhile contribution so some big popular project that i could be proud of.

Oh, I see. I suppose for me it's not only procrastination but also lack of confidence. I always think, "Well it's going to come out awful so why even waste your time trying?" You know, self-pitying crap like that. Although I never considered working on different things little by little instead of one at a time. I think I'll give it a try.

well, as far as the lack of confidence thing goes, well, have you ever seen this comic

Because it brings up a good point that many artists fail to realize. and that is the fact that you have to understand how low of standards an audience really has in general. most of them simply crave content, any content, and therefore often times would prefer getting even the least of what you could offer over nothing. and really your skill will continue to improve as you move forward regardless of where you are at now, and there will no doubt be niche audiences for your creations at every step of the way.

and that's an important thing to understand about being an artist.
I mean I'm not so naive as to say that you should "only make art for yourself". that's dumb, and untrue.
the real way to think about it is to understand the audience you're creating for.

Or in other words, your audience, is the people who want to see/read/whatever that you want to make.

If they aren't looking for what you want to make, then they aren't a part of your audience, because you're only working for the people who want what you want to make. get it?
so if you want to get "better" at what you do based on your own objective concept of what "better" would be? then more power to you, but there's really not much point in making yourself feel bad about not being as "good" as someone else, because believe me, when you reach a similar skill level to them? your "good art" will probably end up being really different from their "good art" anyway.
And their audience? the praise heaped upon that other artist you look up too?
that's not your audience, because your audience will be different, better, more tailored to who you are as an artist because once again, as I said
Your audience are the people who want what you want to make.
and it's going to be different than the audience of all the people you look up too now, an audience that you yourself will own, and no one else will really be able to cater to quite as well as you can.

Simply by being an artist, you create your own niche, that only you can really cater too.

you encounter the single most jaded person ever, who just happens to be invincible, so they experience things like getting stabbed with about as much interest and enthusiasm as watching paint dry.
"he looks like he's barely awake!"
"jeeze! what would it take to get an emotion out of this guy?!"
