My life is stuck into a serious gully...I need a strong motivation to pull it out.

Hi, everybody. First, Thank you for your time. Then it is my story.

I was a technical worker of national power system of our country. But I've quit from it, because I wouldn't intend to associate with evil elements more deeply in that team anymore. I don't know what's wrong, but people there are more ungodly and worship only selfish attitude and benefits of material. Many of them becoming colder and colder in affections like being controlled by evil spirit deeply. They have some proud slogans like " If a person isn't selfish enough, the world will extinguish him", "if a person is quite kind and honest, he may well be bullied", "villains tend to have longevity, yet good people would usually live a short life","As long as you can fullfil your goal, you shouldn't care much about whether the means you take is nice or wicked"... What the hell...

Now 7 months has past since I quit that job. Afterwards I joined a local studio, which manipulated comics and made illustrations for books. I learned to be an inker and colorist for comics and did a few illustrations of children's book. Actually I've learned drawing since I was 4 years old. And I've handled graphics tablet when
I just graduated from my college. And my first job that time was photo editing and designer of note book covers. I hadn't done it very long, but I learned many experiences. So that inking and coloring weren't hard for me. But the main problem is the market for CG industry is very small in our place. My salary was only $390 per month...and I have to work at least 9 hours daily and sometimes there wasn't a holiday of weekend... So my life became unbearably hard up and tiring... I can't even drive a car with that little buget basis.

Afterwards I quit the studio job again and learned to change hands some outsourcing art jobs from a company to a number of artists. By a the help of a friend of mine, I made a little more money that month. But because of the complex relationships, unhealthy regulations and big risks, I decide to still be a pure artist back...

My purpose now is just to do below-average-level submissions as a freelancer, and can make at least %5 per hour. I'll promote my skills diligently, and I hope I'll upgrade myself to be medium level quickly living on that wage standard. I think DA may well give me a start to get paid this way with my current skill level. I know this method seems kinda shortcut. But I guess if I was worth those bad lucks, I'll be worth some good lucks too. What I need the best is that some kind man can give me a hand to help me get aboard the right boat. I'll be super grateful.

Ah... Fire is unconscious anyway, if it's not summoned by a... witch, Witch. May the Gomz get through this tragedy soon.

What I'm requesting is kinda like donate though, yet I can really exchange it using my labor for sure. I need someone to gift me a starting on this road.

Unless you are asking for advice this is the wrong place for this. Almost everyone can use some helping hand to boost their career or life, or some extra money, or some form of charity. However, this is not the charity forum, projects would be better.

Unless you are asking for advice on how you can do something to get out of your situation. But not the place to ask for someone the do something for you. It's not that kind of help.

so what i'm gathering from this thread is that you need some help with finances?
you're more likely to get that in the projects forum.

Hi, darkanddefiant. Yes,you're right. I need a finance resource to keep my economy at positive growth, in the condition of a sound living standard. And I wanna be a great artist. But I'm not planning to achieve this goal with struggling to a hard up life in our local company.

I've sent a few notes to 3 project sponsors. It seems I have to richen my portfolio? I see a lot strong competitors anyway... But I think the works I did before are just near middle-level in a high standard and doesn't reach it. But I'm sure I'm away from entry level. I know it's not hard for me to upgrade my skills and senses, but I must do it in a secure life economically.

you definitely need to relocate this thread to the projects forum then, cause you're going to find way more takers and a better source of help money wise.
