and the situation is a little bit better since I don't have my own family to take care of - I am 19 years old :D... So I can live with my parents if they accept it and pay just the taxes, food and the courses for myself because I am no longer student :D

RE: Can you help me decide?
Can you help me decide?
Hi there! :D
I want to start like that - I got fired from my job yesterday (not art related).. and I need to decide if I take a gap and try to be an independent artist or try to take another job...
I have money to pay off only the completely necessary things for circa next 4 months. BUT! I have almost zero contacts, zero followers and I am not on the skill level I want to be before I start making money from art...
I kind off know what type of illustrations I want to do, but I do not have much experience with them.
So my plan would be to start being consistent on social media - Instagram, facebook, twitter and maybe youtube and try my absolute hardest to learn art so I may have some job opportunities in those 4 months (I have subscription on SVS and Schoolism so this can be little bit easier)
and I actually have art job right now for next 2 months and they said they have future plans I can help them with, but the paid pretty bad so I definitely need to find another source of income.
and next point. EVERYBODY is saying that it is not great idea start to be an independent artist when you don't have your own brand and you don't do the thing you actually enjoy the most... and yeah... I don't have that... I am in the phase of learning.... but I feel like this is the opportunity I don't want to lose.
I am sorry for so long text, but I wanted to say more about my situation.
Thanks for every comment ^^
My new journey :)
I am recently thinking about what I want to do as an artist... and after some time spending with svs community.... listening to svs teachers and watching tons of videos from Jake I realized what made my childhood filled with happiness! I grew up on comics and children books (poo the bear, Donald duck, Asterix and Obelix, and tons of others) and when I think about the books, tv shows and comics I instantly get so happy (nostalgic xD) also I am inspired a lot by impressionism which can be put so well into books and it is a great way how to give something to new generations.. So I am happy i subscribed to svs and I am looking forward to work on it (even tho i don't know how to start at all :D )
