The Starfield

nauroarts:

I took some dragon request over on dA a week or two ago and here are the results. This was fun to do and I think I finally figured out my prices as well.

Dergins for doctater, balletvamp, tcstarwind and Arakutage.
The bottom two are my skydancer and grumpy baby Tyrant.

To those who go request you can repost this with credit to me, only the ones I drew for can.

Ahhhhhhh, thank you so much for this! Raythe looks absolutely wonderful. :D I love it so much. Thank you, thank you!! <3 <3

Alright, so I&#8217;ve been fighting with Emofuri the past few days, and I just can&#8217;t seem to fix this glitch. TT_TT
As you can see, the eyebrows, nose, and mouth are showing all layers at once and thus not animating at all. Not only that, the ears and side hairs are completely missing, and I have no idea where they went.
I&#8217;ve been searching all over to find a fix for this, but so far, I&#8217;ve had no luck.
Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone know how to fix it?

Don’t worry. We know how to drive!

So on Thursday, I got my first car. The only way to commemorate that was to haul every single one of my squishies outside and take pictures. Obviously.

At least, I think that’s all of them…

Things that have actually happened to me.gif

The things people do not understand when they see someone’s commissions prices; the person doing the work needs to be paid a fair wage for the work they do (and when cost of living/their bills go up, so do the prices they charge). So demanding someone lower their commission prices because you ‘don’t feel you should have to pay that much’ is demeaning the artist and their work. In essence, you are saying that they are not worth the amount they wish to charge and should NOT be paid a fair wage in exchange for all of their experience and effort.

So next time you find that your favorite artist has raised their commission prices, keep in mind that for many artists this as their sole means of income and they charge accordingly so that they can at least try to get by.

And as a side note: MANY artists are underselling themselves because consumers have been taught by big business (and the internet) that they should get something for next to nothing (and sometimes just for free), and that people often forget about the MANY faces behind those cheap and affordable products everyone takes for granted. When you aren’t dealing with a company and are dealing with an individual, the item you want is ALWAYS going to seem like it is vastly overpriced, when in reality, it is actually far under priced for the amount of work/ingenuity/materials/experience/etc that really went into the final product; You are paying for a labor of love, not just an end product.

I really liked your commission advice, but I was wondering what I could do to get noticed by people in the first place...

Thanks, I’m glad you found my post helpful! As for your question - exposure, exposure, exposure! I’m always happy to give tips on gaining exposure as an artist. :) In this day and age, it’s so easy to connect with audiences to build up a viewer base, thanks to the internet!

The very first, MOST IMPORTANT thing you need to know is that Tumblr (maybe the internet in general, but I witness it a lot on Tumblr) has absolutely DISGUSTING attitudes towards artists & self promotion. And you need to be aware of this so you can IGNORE IT.

The amount of times I have seen fellow artists harassed by anons for self-reblogging, or the gross, pervasive, often unverbalised but very uncomfortably there attitude that everyone must question the motives behind drawing fanart because drawing fanart for exposure means you must be BURNED AT THE STAKE absolutely disgusts me on so many levels. We do not, and SHOULD NOT, sit around in the dark so somebody can “discover” us, because we wouldn’t GET ANYWHERE. The objection people raise to harmless self-promotion boggles my mind, and because you cannot really change the minds of whiny piss babies who have no idea how the world works, you need to just drink their stupid complaints to make yourself stronger. So rule number one: self promotion is a GOOD and NECESSARY thing.

Here are some other tips!

  1. Expose your art on as many sites as you can! A Tumblr blog is, of course, a really good start. There are lots of other sites and communities you can get involved with that have a creative community to them - petsites are actually a good example. Any site which you can use to connect with others and showcase your art is a good one!

  2. Use every resource available to you to get your art ‘out there’. I’ll speak specifically about the things you can do on Tumblr - self reblogging is one. Dashboards can move fast and people can miss things - reblogging yourself ensures that you snag your ENTIRE audience. Strategic tagging is another - the first five tags you put on a post are the ones that will show up in Tumblr tracked tags. Lots of people track tags for things they love - fandoms, for example. If you draw fanart, maybe make sure to tag the fandom in one of the first five tags (and maybe specific characters as well).

  3. Ask your friends to help you. The kind of friends you should make are the ones that are happy to help you succeed in your endeavours. It’s frankly weird to go up to an artist that you’re not on personal terms with but know they have a wider audience base just to ask them to signal boost you - that’s not going to go down well. But friends (at least, my circle of friends!!) always seem willing to lend you a hand, especially if it’s something important to you. Asking friends to signal boost your commission posts or to signal boost pieces of your art can be really helpful.

Those are the 3 main things I can think of that might help bring your art to a wider audience base! There are other, smaller things too - like presentation. The willingness of someone to engage with your art can be hindered by small things like a bad or unnavigatable Tumblr layout, for example. And presentation of yourself - ensure that you are always courteous, civil and polite, because often lots of people will engage with the art AND the artist. Lots of times someone’s art is well liked because they are well liked as a person! Putting your best foot forward, both in regards to your own attitude and your attitude towards your art, is incredibly important.

I hope that helped you! :)
