Artworks I find extraordinary, original or simply awesome!

Random from Art for Me

Hey everyone!

A little while ago I was given a list of questions about my experiences as a professional illustrator, along with a few other deviantART members who have taken up art as their career. Now the answers have been put together in a neat overview and I thought it was a very interesting read! 

Should You Become a Professional Artist?Community Week
Do you enjoy art passionately and are considering doing it as your job, but have some worries such as;
        :oops: Will I enjoy it as much as a job?
        :oops: Will it be hard getting a job?
        :oops: Will I become a starving artist?

If you're like me, you're asking yourself those questions and are letting them give you a hard time deciding whether or not to pursue art professionally. My health teacher told me, as we digressed from our topic of smoking, that to know whether or not you want to do a job, you have to hear what it's like from someone who's already doing it. That's why I decided to do an interview with professional artists on dA to give me, and hopefully many others, answers to these burning questions and an idea of what it's like to be a professional artist.
Okay, well let's get to it then :la:
This is quite long so if you'd like to jump to a section, here are the questions I aske

If you're interested in becoming a professional yourself, or if you already are one and would like to read about the experiences of others, go and have a look :). One thing I'm particularly happy about is how this demonstrates that the stereotypical "starving artist" is just that - a silly stereotype.

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! P.S. I think you are a top grade quality Deviant. <3
