I'm going to be traveling Europe over the next few months with my significant other, and I plan on taking advantage of the scenery by doing some painting and sketching along the way.
How would you approach this? What kind of materials would you bring? I prefer oils, but I don't believe they'd travel well. As you can expect I'll have limited room for art supplies, so I'm really trying to plan this well.
Dumping art I admire in the mean time.

/co/ pointed me here. I started making my first colored comic but I think I already fucked it up because of the materials I'm using. I'm using printer paper, prismacolor markers, and faber-castell pens.
The problem is that whenever prismacolor marker goes over faber-castell ink, the faber-castell ink fades and bleeds. My process now is... sketch a panel... lightly erase the panel (pencil won't erase once prismacolor marker goes over it)... apply color... apply pen outlines. Is there a better way to do this?

Hi. This is actually my first time posting here.
Here's a drawing of mine, it's from some months ago, and I'm posting it because it's the most recent I have and because the problem I wanted to talk you about it's in this one too.
I'm not here to speak about how my anatomy could improve or such things, because I know that I just have to keep training. I'm here to speak about trait.
As you can see I can't make single lines, whenever I draw a line I can't help but to do that same line over and over again. It was called "chicken something" on the sticky link? Or am I going crazy?
What is the best way to stop doing that?
I know there's not an easy way, so I'm asking for the best.
Sorry if the thread is stupid.
I'll erase it if that's a problem.

Finishing school tommrow.
(Not underage before you ask, 18.)
I'm really dedicated to art, and I love it.
But i've had no formal art education past GCSE, I never took it at A level because back then I felt like I was wasting my time with art, and I don't really want the debt that uni gives me. I also have fallen behind a bit thanks to massive stress I get from school.
Luckily however, I have a cozy situation and I should be able to get financial support, a part time job, and accommodation for 1 year, maybe more.
How should I approach this?
Should I start churning out work, and imporving as much as possible, should I be contacting people to sell my work?
Should I start designing things for business (despite this being something I don't like/am not trained for) for the money?
Should I get an agent or something to sell my work for me and help market it?
Should I sell originals or prints. and at what price?
I'm really clueless on how the art world works and how to break into it, since I live in rural England, and know no self employed people, let alone any artists.
I don't expect alot of money or fame, I just don't want to go homeless and make art. :(
(Also sorry /ic/ But i'm not posting my work here. But most of these questions seem independent of my skill level, if you need an example, just imagine the average freshman just starting art uni.)
Since I've asked alot, i'll dump a few picture I downloaded from /ic/ a while ago.
