Hi people of ConceptArt.org
I am a year 12 A level student and I'm looking at going into concept art. I'm currently doing Art, Maths, Physics and Chemistry and I want to drop Chemistry for year 13, carry on with Art, Maths and Physics, then do Art (possibly combined with maths) at University.
However my mum is continually complaining that I should instead drop art and go into some other field so I can get more money because she is convinced that if I become a concept artist I will have trouble even paying for somewhere to live and will have trouble affording food, clothes etc. and definitely won't be able to afford in anything else like games, music, festivals etc.
So I was hoping some of you who already work as a concept artist (ideally in the UK) would be able to provide an insight into what the standard of living is as a concept artist.
Thanks in advance.
