My Two Cents #4: Selling Art/Getting Recognition

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 29, 2015, 2:08 PM



BE WARNED THESE JOURNALS WILL CONTAIN HEAVY LANGUAGE AND SUBJECT MATTER AT TIMES, IF YOU DONT LIKE IT, JUST IGNORE THEM. THEY WILL BE LABELED IN A WAY FOR YOU TO DO THAT EASILY SO YOU DONT HAVE TO UNWATCH MY JOURNALS AND MISS IMPORTANT UPDATES/SALES/ECT.

So we all know that it can be really difficult to get started when you decide you wanna sell your art
im really only going to be addressing freelance cartooning work
like people here on DA that sell personal use anime commissions and whatnot
But i think people really need to stop fuckin whining about it

1- It takes a long fuckin time to get good at drawing
like 10+ years
granted, it may not take you that long to get good enough for work
but its usually fairly close to that
it may not seem like it when you see young people who are good at drawing
but chances are, they have been working on it since they were very small 
so they are just ahead of the game
it has very little to do with this bullshit thing people like to call "talent"
if you ask me, talent is just the will to keep pushing through and do art even when it gets difficult
ie when you're over the age of six and you can see the faults
but it doesnt scare you away
no one pops out of the womb being able to draw like a master
every person makes art that sucks
that doesnt even really go away when you get better
so just keep moving foward

2- Even when you get good, that does not automatically equal recognition
making a career out of art is about more than drawing and painting well
it is very social
you need to network, advertise, and stay active, putting out art often
ive heard a good way to get feedback is to make sure you give it
give useful comments to others and they will often do the same
and if someone takes the time to do so for you
make sure you give them some as well
my point is, dont just sit around in a pile of drawings at your computer bitching about not having enough followers and watchers
be purposefully seeking out exposure
submit to groups, post to forums, ect.
i happen to like this account
dATrade 
for small point donations, you can get watchers, favs and llamas
you can earn some points by doing the same for others
they also have a system to get your art featured on their page
i think it is great exposure

3-Pricing has a lot of factors involved and DA artists often undercharge
da is an interesting place because it has an uncharacteristically low price for most freelance work
this is likely because more often than not, these types of commission are for an individual's personal use
that they do not make money with
this is all fine and well
BUT DONT YOU DARE TRY TO TELL AN ARTIST THEY CHARGE TOO MUCH
it is their hard work, and love that goes into that art
and you do not get to tell them they dont deserve to charge whatever the fuck they see fit
most of them are severely undercharging anyway
an artist deserves to make more than fucking minimum wage
outside of DA, most freelancers charge at a rate of a couple hundred an hour
you are paying them to live and for their valuable time
if you dont like it, dont buy from that artist
there are plenty of artists starting out that charge less 
yeah you may not get the same quality
but you get what you pay for

4- I think everyone needs to have some sort of contract with commissions
i have it right at the top of my journal
that by commissioning me, you are agreeing to my terms and conditions i have laid out
its as simple as that
remember that it is extremely important to have a clause stating that the art may not be used commercially
unless they wanna sort out an individual contract for royalties and such
without this, you can get screwed 
you could do a 10 buck design commission that the buyer proceeds to make millions off of
that is no bueno 
protect yourself
if you can, i would even suggest consulting a contract attorney for more specifics

5-Art is very competitive 
dont bitch about not getting commissions when you arent bringing enough to the table
you know who gets popular?
people with an appealing style and often those who do tons of fanart
sorry, but the average joe doesnt give a fuck about your ocs
you can be unique and have really cool stories and characters and often get overlooked
because it might not be what people are looking for
im not saying you have to be a slave to the public's demands
but it is definitely something you need to think about when you're only in it for the money
very often ive seen people do popular stuff 
till they get really good and well known
then they start to launch their own stuff

any time you are dealing with consumers, you have to consider them
so here's what sells well:
boobs, porn, cute and fanart
if you dont wanna draw these things its gonna be a bit harder, but its not impossible to make it

6- Keep moving forward
Art is really hard
so if you wanna do it, you gotta be persistant
keep pushing, keep learning, and most of all, keep drawing
there is not instant gratification in this industry
so if you cant take it, get out now
cuz you are gonna need to be tough and stubborn to make it through



I hope this was fun for us all
if you wanna have discussions below, keep it respectful and rational please
i will hide comments at my own discretion if i think you are starting childish drama, insulting others or otherwise being a fuckboy

good day to you all^^

WELCOME ~!



I am Zangetsu!


We are Kiryu and Kaichi. and sometimes Pablo...hehe
you've been warned.
try not to succumb to the madness
i am a femenist. it is not a dirty word
i dont hate men. i hate assholes.
i am mixed race, non-religious and gender-fluid
i do have opinions and i refuse to keep my mouth shut even if i am less popular because of it

drawing porn is usually fine with me, but what i really hate is badly drawn porn
anything that breaks a body to try to look sexy disgusts me deeply
this includes boobs-and-butt poses, unnatural thigh gaps, you get the idea.
also anything remotely rapey makes me see red
i hate people who give lust a bad name

my favourite things to use nowadays are mechanical graphite pencil, prismacolor pencil, pens, white gel pen, pastel/charcoal and my fairly new wacom tablet:D

Never accept commission from: :iconnyanperonya:
(mostly just a reminder for myself)




Favourite genre of music: no idea anymore
Favourite style of art: Don't know...I draw anime. but I like many kinds of art
MP3 player of choice: ipod nano
Wallpaper of choice: Does this mean on the computer? if so, it'd be anything with Ichigo Kurosaki on it
Skin of choice: I don't understand the question....
Favourite cartoon character: Does Ichigo count as a cartoon charactor? I like Stitch too
Personal Quote: "I believe art was meant to be more beautiful than reality."

FAQ



What do you want to know?



Silver Square Bullet by KawikuWHAT KIND OF MEDIUM DO YOU USE?
-I use a regular old .5 lead mechanical pencil, precise V5 and micron inking pens, prismacolour premier pencils, white gel pen, white acrylic paint, chalk pastels, gel pens. i dont always use all of these things for one picture. Nowadays I also have an Intuous Pen and Touch Tablet that I use with Easy Paint Tool Sai. Because it is easy and I am slow with computers.

Silver Square Bullet by KawikuWILL YOU MAKE A TUTORIAL?
-probably not. if i did, it would be far in the future. i cannot even figure out basic things, like how to compile drawings onto a single file. plus there are way better artists and teachers out there that already put of great tutorials! i highly recommend proko, sycra, and bluefley. they have great stuff for basics and advanced so check them out. they also often do livestreams where you can ask them questions!!!

Silver Square Bullet by KawikuWILL YOU DRAW MY CHARACTER?
-sure, if you commission me. if i dont have a journal that states im open for some random requests(i do sometimes when im really bored), please dont ask me. im just going to start ignoring those who do.

Silver Square Bullet by KawikuCAN I USE YOUR ART?
-you can study or use for pose reference, but you may not repost to any other websites, claim as your own or directly copy

Silver Square Bullet by KawikuHOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DRAWING?
-as long as i can remember. i started drawing anime styled art in 9th grade

Silver Square Bullet by KawikuHOW OLD ARE YOU?
-19
