>>2814013 Don't get conned into thinking you should settle for a shitty tablet just because it's your first one. That's like...the opposite of what you should do, lmoa. The difference between something that blows wiener and one that doesn't is at worst a couple hundred dollars, and it will save you countless hours of frustration that no one should will upon themselves, let alone come out of pocket for. All of these goofy moulinyans talking their Medium tablets up would probably have made it by now if they hadn't spent the past 5 years drawing on a tablet the size of four Totino's® Pizza Rolls that fused together in the microwave. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fIoojngT95s
This is true, but I would nonetheless advocate for temperance in employment for those young enough to manage it. There are very few jobs that don't take more than their fair share of mental and physical energy from those engaged in them. Having your own money, alleviating your parents' burden to a degree and making your own purchasing decisions is very important, but at the same time you have your entire life to work. This is more directed at the 18 year olds and those in their early 20s, but if art is something you'd like to take seriously you'd do well to strongly consider limiting your working hours to 15-20 a week. Spend more of your time during the week refreshed and spend what money you have to sit in on local life-drawing sessions, classes at an atelier, employing a capable tutor (online or off) or simply saving for your own near future when the support network provided by your parents is ultimately removed. Avoid exorbitant debts, but don't be so quick to fully commit yourself to working either if not absolutely necessary. This is the advice I'd offer myself if I were 16 again.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChtPqW8fIfc
