    I was going to go to school for art had scholarships but don't like to starve. Before I can recommend I need to know about your artistic ability.

    I'd start with acrylics. They are less expensive and easier to correct mistakes with.

    I would go with acrylics, you can get a tole painting class to start or something similar, they allow you to get a feel for it and actually learn the basics while looking what you know what you're doing.

    Go with oil. It's more expensive, and if you fuck up you throw it away and start over :hat:
