it was a long time ago. in my city you can't rent a violin unless you're studying in the same musical school and studying is expensive. but i bought my own violin a few years ago and now i'm slowly learning it, probably getting more serious while in the university.
you play violin too? omg that's so cool! i hope you become huge!
Oh, lucky you! I cannot imagine how you manage to earn so much by prints and stocks, but that sounds great! Congratulations! I wonder if you learn playing violin on your own or rather enrol at music school or find a teacher?
I got one client through ModelMayhem (I highly suggest this place even if you're not a super photo-manipulator, because commissions usually come easily) who wanted three of my prints to decorate his studio - also I did one free work for him. He paid more than you could ever get from deviantArt.. which is very kind of him. Thanks to him I was able to afford my violin.
I think I'm going to find a teacher Or go to a music school, we'll see
