    So... I'm not sure what you're saying. You want to make enough money on your art that you can buy a horse?

    "Every typical artist" doesn't make $30 000 a year. It depends on a lot of factors.

    Um. Didn't you just answer your own question, Odayga?

    You said you sell your paintings. You said you need money by next year.
    So, all you need to do is make enough paintings that sell for the right amount before next year. And as Tully said, there is no "typical" amount an artist makes.

    Better get moving. Horses are expensive creatures.

    actually, the "typical artist" makes less than $1500 a year by national income surveys. That's in the US anyhow, and includes data on anybody who wants to call themselves "artists". But if you can sell enough paintings to buy and care for a horse, go to it

    Or, actually, I just had a better idea - teach the horse to paint, I bet that'd rock the fine art world and you'd be a millionaire within a month!

    so whats the problem here? And if you're making 1500 a year and living, the only artist you are is a con-artist

    Sounds like youre extremely cocky, but ironically the people on deviantart already pwned you from every which way on the topic so i'll just leave it at that.

    hm. maybe its the other artists i know. a typical artist @ their level makes that much money. they must be art directors or something similar to that. to make that much in a year.

    Well, congrats on the horse, but I think you need a slight reality check; how does a 16 year old earn $30,000 a year while she's in school? Heck, I barely made more than that working two fulltime art jobs last year.

    Your horse sketches from what I've seen are quite good for someone at your age level. I'm sure you can sell a few commissions and have in the past. But hon, $30,000? If you know something I don't about the industry, let's hear it!
