Advanced Career
The Artist is a person whose natural "gifts" and "genius" have finally been recognized (possibly) by the general public, who still probably don't fully appreciate the artist as much as they should...

Many Artists are taken in as a "favorite" by rich patrons, who subsidize or provide for the artist as long as they continue to paint and increase the prestige of the patron. For these "High Society Artists" life can be a comfortable one, but all too often one Artist finds himself competing against rival Artist of opposing Patrons or even the same Patron...The High Society Artist is often seen at salons or parlors, harshly criticizing and mocking rivals work, while being offended when the same is done to their work.

Artistic Expertise (New Skill) The Art skill of the same sort is necessary to have Artistic Expertise. A character with Artistic Expertise can produce Artwork of far greater caliber than someone with just the Art Skill. This skill gives a further +10% to all Busk tests, and the Artist may demand two to three times as much for their work. The Artistic Expertise is divided up into the same categories as Art. This Skill will also include Muscianship and Sing.
