Hello everyone ^^
First of all, I want to thank you for all the feedback and the support you gave me since I arrived on DA ! I have reached 200 watchers and will very soon have 10 000 pageviews. Both are huge achievements for me and give me great motivational boosts
You may have noticed that I haven't been very active on DA during the last weeks. I would like to explain you why, and I hope you'll understand. Basically, I'm entering the last semester of my studies (which are totally unrelated to art). This means that in 6 months or so, I'll start working, and somehow this has triggered a lot of questioning.
During the last two years, drawing and painting have taken an ever growing place in my heart. I've started to spend more and more time doing art, to the point I spend nearly all my free time practising. I can no longer envision a future without drawing at all.
I've began to consider very seriously the idea of starting a freelance illustration business. I would like to take advantage of my last months as a student to give a real boost to my skills, as I won't have enough time to practice that much when I'll start working.
Moreover, I need to get familiar with the administrative part of the business. I'm looking into which status I need to have, I'm writing contracts samples, I'm building an online portfolio, etc, so that I could start accepting paid work in parallel to my regular job.
So this is the reason why I don't comment and respond as often and as much as before
I hope you'll understand. Art is really important to me. At the very least I want to try to become a professional artist, so that even if I fail at it, I won't regret anything !
Thanks again for your comprehension
