Making the jump from being a hobbyist to a professional artist can be daunting and can feel overwhelming. The rewards are apparent with gaining a new income stream from doing something you love, but there is a certain labyrinth to navigate when serving customers with your art!

To work as a professional artist, having a strong mindset is a necessity, and making art for clients is taking a step into the unknown, where nothing is guaranteed, there are no right answers, and not everything is predictable. It's a new adventure each time you sit down to make art for a client.

Above all is the tension that exists between being an artist (freedom and creativity) and working for a customer (constraints, deadlines, being client-centered). How do you deal with that kind of strain when going professional?

In this tutorial set Sam Kennedy, a professional illustrator who has over 25 years of experience across three different types of industries shares his insights working for clients. Sam's experience spans creating artwork for video/board games, publishing, and slot machines, frequently using DAZ Studio in combination with Photoshop. Sam has learned how to strengthen his mindset, hone his skills, market his talents, work with agencies, find clients, and most importantly communicate well with customers throughout a project.

If you have considered taking on the challenge of being a professional illustrator using DAZ Studio, then this tutorial set could provide a bridge to help you cross over to that professional world. Sam shares his experience of how to be a professional illustrator.
