It depends on what you define as "good". Also if you somehow get a "seal of approval" or other form of tangible validation, it won't mean much. It is kind of like the medals and awards on bottles of wine, they mean nothing to how good the wine actually is.

But if I want to be the new Craig Mullins, who do I have to convince that I am good? I mean so that movie producers and famous people want my art for their movies.

I don't think you have to convince people that you are "good", you just have to convince them that you have something to offer them, something they can use. Saying you want to work in movies and video games for instance doesn't actually mean much. Most people won't know how to use you or even care to look at your work if you can't show them how it's directly applicable to them. What I mean is you need to be specific about what job you want so you can cater your body of work to that.

But to go back to the original question, good is arbitrary without a set of metrics to judge things by.

You'll be "good" when you get what you want AND what you need to be whole.

The only you need to convince is the audience, nothing more. Audience may vary. It could be art director, casual audience like children depend what you aiming with your art career. In my opinion, famous people doesn't even exist if they have no large audience.
