I have been trying to make it as a freelance artist for quite some time and I work in a variety of different materials, such as watercolour, acrylics, oils, pastels etc. What chance do I have to make it in illustration when everyone seems to require digital art and photoshop?

  • Case closed? Far from it! Seemingly you are really able to draw and paint without a computer. Think yourself as a musician who can play violin or piano tastefully and get it right without sequencing his stuff in a computer. If all jobs seem to require mastering Adobe's software, simply study those skills. In an year you are infinitely more capable than a technical Photoshop or Illustrator guru who never has got what's needed to become a creative painter. – user287001 yesterday
