How would you recommend I start promoting myself so I can make money off selling custom art for people?

 No.4711

Open a tumblr, circlejerk with "artists", tell people you take commissions, post the best example art you have with it, share it absolutely everywhere, and hope for the best?

Depends what your art is like. Why don't you share a couple of pieces so we can tell you if your plan is realistic? I personally think that the 'requests' model is unlikely to make you any money, unless you're a hentai artist.

if you want to make money off of art i think your best option in social media fame, start creating a following

 No.4737

Find a small fandom that's starving for good fanart and make yourself well-known in it. I'd recommend the fandom for the online web serial Worm and its sequel-in-progress Ward if you want to take this route.

Hentai-Foundry been experiencing a boom as far as I can tell; lots of people putting up teaser images and shuttling viewers over to patreon to sell the uncensored version or different variations.

OP:
Appreciate the responses. I honestly threw this question up impulsively out of curiosity. I more or less wanted to see if others on this forum were interested in doing the same thing, and if they are currently doing it, or if I'm the only one ._.

Oh, I happen to be an expert on this. It's honestly really fucking easy.

You draw some art, it doesn't even have to be good, make sure to put a recognizable signature to it so people can google you, have a blog or something where the rest of your gallery is, link it to your paypal account or bitcoin wallet or something for people to send donations to.

Again, your art doesn't even have to be masterpieces, but what's important is a certain meme-value that compels someone to save it to their hard drive and later repost it somewhere else. Initially, you will be the one posting your own art in various different high-traffic places until it catches on and becomes viral and your fans are doing your work for you.

Use reverse image search to see who's reposting your shit and where.

Wow, embracing mediocrity. I can't blame you for doing it, but I can't respect you either. If you can, don't live off of commissions op.

 No.4796

Way to insult me dude. It's not mediocrity, read my post again, you can do what you love and not be a prostitute like Shadman who draws porn of spinners and emojis and Donald Trump and whatever, but whatever you draw actually has to be interesting to others to get popular, not just to yourself. One way or another you have to get people to repost it and talk about it.

Nobody owes you anything for spending a lot of time working hard on a piece, it's the value they receive that matters.
