I decided to start listing all the things I've learned over the years that helped me to eventually become a full time artist in 2015. I think many of the lessons I've learned about how to survive in the traditional art world through reading and researching, trial and error and mostly out right stubbornness are transferable to the NFT digital art space.
It's not an exhaustive list and I'll probably edit and add to it in the future. Of course, there are always exceptions to every rule. Everyone is different. Have a look over it, take what you like and ignore the rest.
