First of all, I freely admit that what I say isn't gospel. I am a total amateur at art and writing. I've learned everything that I know via the internet and a few drawing books. It's just that I appreciate all of the tutorials here on dA that have helped me out, and I want to put a little bit of my own methods back in.
If you’re a regular reader of mine, you might think that I’m an overly negative person. The truth is that I’m really not. It’s so easy to get passionate over things that you dislike that you forget to remember the things that you do like. I don’t make these guides because I think that deviantAR
You're creating art. You have the passion, you have the skills. Why not make some money out of it then? It's a good idea, right? A lot of people live from creating art, and even more earn some money on the side by taking commissions. You should give it a shot!
