This is honestly a pretty common answer for a lot of things buuut, I loved to do it. I’ve loved drawing even when I was really little, I think the video games thing went hand in hand as I would always draw my own video games on paper, like fake box art and stuff. Hey you are talking to the creator of Pokemon Advance. haha Having a career as an artist as I am finding out is incredibly tough, still haven’t found a way to live off it. The nicest part about it is everyone uses art in some form. You have so many options, you just have to be really determined to do it though. When you aren’t getting art jobs it can be very easy to kill your motivation. Also networking is really important too, in the art field you have a constant need to feel relevant. I love doing art and still do. I think the hardest part though is finding something to do with the degree afterwards.
Thanks so much! That really means a lot! Glad you are enjoying it!
