For the past month or two, I’ve been getting myself in gear. I’m determined to build up an audience to a point where I’ve got a better shot at crowdfunding a short film within a year or two. Getting started on some comics or even animations will help, but for now I’m pushing myself to draw more frequently, and I’m posting those images to more sites.
Most of my art gets posted on my DeviantArt account. I have a modest following there, and I especially like having an age wall restricting access to my nude images. Plus, my audience there ‘gets’ Daisy – at least, I hope they do – so I don’t have to explain or defend her as much.
More recently, I set up a Facebook page for my work. I only post SFW images there, partly because I don’t think Facebook has a way of setting up age-restrictions, but also because I have family watching my page.
Tumblr is another one I’ve been posting to recently. With news of it being acquired by Yahoo, I’m wondering if I got in too late, and will need to find something else. Time will tell, I guess. Yahoo already said they’re going to clean up the site, to make it more family-friendly… maybe then my Daisy images won’t be reblogged on hardcore porn pages.
I’ve a new Youtube channel which, aside from my demo reel and the occasional tool demo, I’m trying to find a use for. I have some videos I could post of my brother’s dogs… it might not fit with my other stuff, but people love dog videos.
CGSociety, CGHub, and 3DTotal are other sites I could be posting my stuff too… But they’re fairly 3D-centric, and lately I’ve only had time for hand-drawn pics. CGS and CGH do have 2D galleries, but mostly for crazy-talented painters… My inks and color fills don’t exactly fit in.
Posting to all these sites leaves me wondering just what to do with my personal domain. I still post 3d WIPs here when I can, but those could easily be switched over to my Facebook page, or to any of the other sites.
