I'm Very Good At Art And Await To Become A Professional. Any advice?
When I was 8-years-old I had to enter a picture or painting in an art contest. After a few days I had finished a picture of my cat, Catniss(I had a chose of 8 other cats but I went with her). My mom told me it looked exactly like her. I asked other people too if it looked like a real cat and they said yes. So I entered that into the art contest and won 1st place. I still have that skill and I'm trying to improve it and would like to use that skill in my career.

P.S. I have exactly 25 pets total.
It's impressive that you know what you want to do at this point. Most people fight the artist in them to find a professional that isn't related to themselves at all. It happened to me and it was because where I lived, I thought doing art isn't quite possible for a real job. In a somewhat way, it was true but I wrestled with myself and did not see any other way. But somewhere down the years being a computer science major, I decided that, I wanted to do something I love. So, I decided to pursue something like graphic design, motion graphics, and animation.
If you really like to draw, I would definitely look at animation. It won't be easy, hours and hours of drawing frame by frame. Even with graphic design, it isn't easy without consistency.
Overall, try and look more into design work. It's art in another form and I find it very enjoyable.
