    Hello guys, this is my frist post here, I discovered this site from reddit.
    My goal is to be free, so I wont have to work for fake "occupations" and do what I really love doing : making art full time, I do 3D modeling and 3D sculpting and I know some 3D animation too, and I've started with drawing and painting too ( thats a life goal lol) I d like to be free in order to get enough time to work on that full time I mean like 10+ hours a day on it ( that what I do on my free days), So DO you have any idea of how I could achieve that economic independance, Any idea will be highly appreciated guys

    I agree with making a brand for yourself, social media is big, and youtube too.
    There's people on youtube who do demos on how to draw things and I think something like speed painting or there's other things like that..

    I suggest you join deviantart. It is a popular social network for artists of all kinds and just for people for enjoy art. Great community too. This can help you improve your art skills and connect with others artists. However, I wouldn't expect to make a lot of money directly for deviantart.

    I don't know if you want to be doing it freelance, if not maybe technology corps could use your modeling skills.

    What you're looking for is passive income.

    Look into selling kindle books. A few my friends online are successful doing this and are receiving $xxxx per month without that much work.

    However, the initial process will require you to devote a lot of your time. So don't overlook that part if you plan on selling kindle books.

    First of all, understand that you are fortunate in the fact that what you love doing can pay very well.

    So, what is left is you actually putting a ton of work in
    a) perfecting your craft
    b) making a name of yourself
    c) attracting clients.

    The above steps are not sequential. You do not have to do a) then b) then c). Actually, if you go that way, you will suffer. Instead, they all happen in parallel, as long as you are conscious about them.

    So, here's an idea to get you started: Offer custom 3D logos to small businesses/individuals. Won't make you rich, but it will get some money flowing your way and THAT is what you need first - easy early wins that will get you motivated to think and try the bigger stuff.
