I'm a new artist. I've been drawing off and on for many years, but recently realized it's something I want to do for the rest of my life. I also figured I need to stop caring what others think (at least the negative stuff) and do what Ray wants to do.

I've been burned WAY too many times. Then I'm told, oh no there's no money in this. Hm. Then he says I'll get paid after it sells.
