    I liked the insect wings drawing, and a lot of the 3d stuff. I regularly look at the trending and latest stuff on artstation.com and am always impressed with what people do.

    Wish you luck buddy. I just finished my master of fine arts, I had a piece in the Laguna Art Museum and an article about me in the LA Times. I can't even get fast food work.

    Can you airbrush?

    What you're showing I think of as art for artists or art for art collectors; in the general case making a living off that seems rather chancy to me. I think that in order to make money using your creativity you'd need to lower the bar and do graphic design or concept design for video games, etc.; what you might consider hack work. E.g., this guy does great work for Bungie and I suspect that the first few with the skulls are stuff he's done for himself.

    It's not about lowering a bar. Both graphic design and especially video game design are two completely different fields than fine art, with entirely different and separate skill sets and formal training specific to those areas. It's not that "refuse" to do graphic design, my education in fine art had no training or preparation for that area (because it's a separate field), and will never get hired to do it.

    Well I hope you didn't get a student loan for that degree.

    I did. And I don't regret the degree that I got. Does it guarantee a safe cushy job? Hell no. But it's the path I chose and I will do what I need to do to make it work for me.

    Sometimes I think I lived a charmed life. I sort of fell into work that I loved doing and also paid well. So in that sense I had it easy.

    That's nice. I was homeless for 16 months up until last summer. Still wouldn't change what I do!

    It's easy for me to be flippant when I've had it easy. But in the long run I do think it's better that people do what they enjoy even if they aren't raking in the bucks.

    One thing you might try is changing your website. All the text is off screen to the left on my ipad, and it loads crazily for the pictures. Frustrating because the art looks like it could be cool.

    Site loads perfectly normal for me, not sure what you think should be changed.

    I do sculpt, quite a lot actually. I just need better photos of them. I love sculpting and then really bringing my sculpts to life in color. I have a really good 1/16th sculpt of Sir Anthony Hopkins. His features offer really great detail work, and I love small, meticulous detail.
