Anyone anyone? im getting my horse next spring because im not financially ready for one yet. with experience i am. but finanically. no. ill need at least 30,000.00 by next year. which is what every typical artist makes. NOTE: i sell my paintings. which are amazing. so yeah.
yep. yep. yep.
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
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.Originally Posted by Odayga
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.
no i am not cocky. im just excited for getting my own horse.
wtf. anyone anyone?
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!
well. maybe not 30,000.00 a year. but the job im getting pays $9.00 an hour. and if i work 10 hours a day ( SUMMER ). thatll be 90.00 a day. 90 x 7 = 630.00 a week x 4. and so on. totally enough for a horse. a horse is about 500.00 a month. theyre not THAT expensive. ive been around them all my life. ive just been a vagabond for so long. never had a chance to settle down and own a horse until NOW. maybe 30,000.00 in 2 or 3 years.... i dunno. i just want that much to have an easy pace with horse expenses. 30,000.00 will last most of the horses life. they live to 30 or 40 years anyway. IF theyre taken extremely good care of.
ABove is an example of hours worked. but yes i will consider doing commissions.
Where do you plan to keep your horse?...
LONG LIVE YOKO KANNO!!!
@ my trainers boarding/care place. i take professional lessons there. ( the joys of once being a vagabond. never settled to take lessons for years. just have been riding for years. )
hahhaa no. it was an example. i have loads of time for commissions. btw contact me if you know any people that are willing to pay for commish's. im gonna go now. be back later.
Are we in the twilight zone???......
anyone else feeling that "wtf" vibe?
alright. now whats going on? do you guys not believe that ill have enough money to buy a horse/maintain or what?
It's not so much that we don't believe.
It's that we don't care.
