If you don’t have the right tools and techniques, such as paints, pencils, and drawing tablets, you’ll need to purchase those as well. Since you’ll be working for yourself, you’ll also need studio space in your home or in a rented office space. For more tips, including how to find clients as a freelance artist, read on!
