I honestly don't know at the moment. I'm torn between keeping it a hobby and doing it as a profession.

I want ti use my art to make graphics for video games. Right now Im getting my degree in game and simulation programming but I might go back for a degree in art if I need it. If I don't then I will just keep practicing. I'm already making games. Its pretty fun

Same here. I'm pursuing a degree in computer sciences, majoring in web development, but I am, at my heart, an artist. My art skills help with game development and web development equally.

Sorry for the late reply, It really does help. Being an artist that is. I even got extra credit in one of my classes because of some 3d models I made that no one else could make :)

I wanna be up on my sketchings to the point that it could be a profession should my initial plan fall through or I get tired of it. I just love the whimsy and focus art brings outta me!
It's a hobby for me because I have a completely different profession, but it is a very important hobby, a true interest, something I would have done on my entire time If I would not have a profession.

I'm actually in the process of getting my bachelors in Graphics and Web Design with the eventual intention to get my Masters. My ultimate goal is to become an Art Director. :nod:
I am well on my way of becoming a lawyer, but i still love art!

I put I want to keep it as a hobby while having another profession. I'm not really sure if that's accurate for what I want, though, lol.

I want to become an art teacher. That's less about my art and more about teaching how to art, lol. I would also like to sell my art if I can, but that's less a profession I think if it's just on the side :T Idkkkk.
I want to be an animator but I also want to keep painting as a hobby
