Concept Artists / Writers
I've thought about it for a while but I don't know enough.
Can anyone give me advice or their experience if they are one?
I imagine being a concept artist would be stressful, especially if you're working on a big project. It also seems like it would be an unpredictable career (one without a steady income).
My friends always assume I'm going to be an artist, but I don't know if it's for me.
Art has always been a hobby and I'm scared that I'll start to hate it if it becomes a job.
I'm not very good with deadlines or pressure and I have a terrible time with being told what to do...
But I'm 18 and need to start thinking about earning some of my own money
The only things I've been really told I'm good at are art and writing. Two careers that are very unstable and highly unrealistic...
Any thoughts on either of them?
Would going to uni/college with both these things in mind be of help? Are there any courses you would recomend for either writing or concept art?
Thank you for any replies
