Let me draw you some stuff!
So as of the past few weeks, I’ve been getting more and more depressed. I’m in a very toxic work environment and I hate, hate, hate my job. While I definitely can acknowledge that this is a great problem to have (with so many people depressed by not FINDING a job), it’s really taking a toll on me. I was told to my face that I’m not being paid as much as I deserve because I’m a girl, and that I’ll never be trusted as much as the only man who works there. I’ve been looking for something else in the art field to switch to, but to no avail, so I’m really hoping I can start doing more regular commissions and Redbubble sales to support my income, which might let me cut down on my hours at work.
If you can’t commission me (or don’t want to) that’s totally fine! I would really appreciate reblogs to help spread the word, though!
Thanks a ton, guys! If you’re interested in commissioning me, you can message me on my Tumblr or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cheers and thanks, loves!
I heard drawing style is really similar to the artist, so I compared my drawing with myself and it DOES really similar. It’s really interesting. I also wanna see other artists’.
Damn, it does.
I tried taking my OC drawing (one where I don’t try to mimic the original style like in fanart :’)) and a picture of myself to see if they’re similar too but….. I dunno what to think…. ‘3’
i want to do a thing too!
Now available on tote bags, stickers and more at my Redbubble!
my entry into the grand center’s first nights schedule book cover contest. it was nice to be working on something other than my internship for the first time in a while. :) the theme was “st. lou-minate” so i decided to stick close to that and roll with it.
Ok so I’ve been quiet about this for some time now, and I thought I should break that silence and make this public. (Hey other people are posting art PSA’s, this ain’t new)
We are Artists, We are many
Being a artist on Tumblr alone isnt easy. There are millions of other people doing the exact same thing you’re doing. Amongst all of them you can be overlooked so easily. Now I am familiar with all those PSAs about not worrying about being popular and loving your own art. Thats all well and good, no ones debating that. But we artist want to share our art with the world. We want to show everyone what we can do.
When we receive praise and love for our work, thats the best feeling in the world for us. We all have friends, fellow artists or not, that support us. But here on Tumblr, your art might not get pushed out into the crowd. For myself as an example, I get a 1 reblog for every 10 likes on something. And this is only including when I originally post it. When art post is liked, no one else sees it. Likes stay hidden and don’t appear on others dashes. (And yes, some blog themes do show likes, this I am aware)
Likes are good, but Reblogs do a lot more
When someone reblogs your art, a whole new set of people get to see it. Most of them are people who have never seen your stuff before. For example, whenever Carbines Official WIldstar Tumblr reblogs my Wildstar art, I get bombarded with likes, reblogs even follows! But before that, when I post it in the first place, not much happens. Dont get me wrong, I’m grateful I get anything, but feedback and notoriety is what keeps an artist like me going, and many others as well. Now I may understand that sometimes something someone draws isn’t your cup of tea, that’s alright! But even if you show a little interest, a reblog does a world of difference.
Support your friends, Support those who care
I know this is all sounding a little preachy, but it’s something I needed to get off my chest. There are no complaints, there are no orders, just a call out from all us artists. From the big and professional, to the small and unseen. We all want to share our art with the world, and it can all begin with a reblog.
( I dont think I need to say that everyone should reblog this, it goes without saying no?)
reblogging for awareness
