   None because I don't. :XD:

   Professional is mainly defined when you're making a career out of artwork, or have a degree after successfully completing advanced studies within that major.

   It can also be defined by your environment in a less meaningful sense. You may seem like a professional among one group of people and be a rookie in another. All kind of comes down to experience.
