    Obstacles? Ideas Please?

    Hello everybody!

    OK so I'm having a bit of a dilemma in my life and I just wanted to ask you for your well valued opinions.

    Here's a little background: I come from a pre-teen mom and by the time she was 16 she had two kids so I've been close to broke my whole life. I doodled here and there and then started to really draw and then my mom basically said getting a career in art was stupid and wasn't going to pay off. I've grow away from that and have now fully decided to become a character designer and an animator. Now the only thing is that I've noticed some of my mothers bad traits in me. Tardiness, procrastination, excuses, etc and so I feel like I need to move away so I was thinking of moving to Texas or somewhere big in animation. I have enough money to move there, but not enough to live yet and there aren't many jobs available here, so what do you guys think?

    So my question is where is the animation/concept art business big at?
    Did you go over any kind of obstacles to get where your at?
