On my bike ride with the dog today it occurred to me I need some outside perspective and insight. One of the things I really hate about not being able to do conventions any more is that I don't get to interact with other artists the same way. So I'm wondering if I'm getting a really skewed or unrealistic perspective of what's possible when I look at other artists online. So I'm hoping you all can help me out with this question!
Are you or do you know of an artist who does anthro / furry work, (that doesn't have to be their main fare though) who supports themselves solely through their art, but DOES NOT do NSFW (or adult / nudes of any sort) or comics ? and does not have a partner, spouse or relative or roommate that provides more than half of their income / food / housing and other resources?
I'm asking this because I'm wondering if I'm attempting to do something that just isn't feasible when you add in these specific constraints ( the nsfw content and no comics) .
I've seen plenty of artists who do the above and appear to be totally paying their way in life through their art, but I'm curious if it's possible without those aspects.
Thanks so much for your help!
