Thanks guys, sorry I was MIA for a few days after just coming back, had some computer issues and basically had to get a new one and build it from scratch.

Unfortunately my social media is ded lmao, I haven't updated it much at all with my latest work, just been freelancing on the down low for some friends lately when I have time.

Sketched on my new computer, while I'm still trying to get all my old settings back.

Anyway heres a WIP concept sketch of Sael's sister, the electrifying half thunder dragon El!

Glad to see you're still working on stuff Gab! The new character concept looks good, I dig the outfits. He gives off similar vibes to the main character of Darker than Black, Hei, especially with the mask. This makes this design really nostalgic for me since I liked that show when I watched it a while back. Looking forward to more!

I love these, reminds me of pop art and stuff I used to see on music album covers. I would definitely buy a print of the second picture with the unicorn skull for a T-shirt or mug or something. I keep looking at it and feeling like man this would look great on my wall.

Nice! I have really little understanding of how actual paints on canvas work so I can't comment much other than that I'm genuinely impressed with your versatility. Your game art and your physical art both have a very distinct look to them and they both look very well practiced.

Templarmaestro is fantastic, I love the idea of a crusader knight with a fro, just oozes style for some reason. The sketch of the big dude looks really good too, I'm glad I could catch up with all your work Lego you've really come far!

It looks good Echo! The shading/colouring on the hair is particularly well done. Overall there's not much I can offer in terms of feedback other than maybe the shading on the face isn't quite right. If I look at it for a while something about the placement of the shadows on the nose and left side (our left) of the face doesn't seem to quite add up. It feels more of a nit pick than anything glaringly wrong though, either way great work.

Nice job on the full picture, it takes a lot of effort to do big drawings like that!

Just a small update, Sael's final concept sketch is done!

Here is the front/back, back is still a rough and I haven't figured out what to name her sword yet  :hmm: all I know is, it's gonna be real edgy haha.

Thanks guys! I need to really find time to work on my colouring/rendering, I feel like that's my weakest area. But for now I'm just gonna stick to what I know as I'm getting back into the swing of things. In the meantime, things are slow unfortunately but here's something I've been chipping away at.

WIP character design for a pet game project I've been working on. I'm making a series of these so you can definitely expect more to come!

Name: Half-Dragon Sael
Class: Warrior
Element: Fire

Ahh yess Kiyohime! I already gave her chocolates in the last valentines event on FGO, this year I need to grind chocolates for all those servants I missed.

Your work looks fantastic by the way, very professional!

« on: February 13, 2019, 12:38:11 AM »
Well there are effective and ineffective ways to use social media to promote your work. It might be that you haven't been using social media effectively, if you want I can recommend a book about SEO and E-commerce that is really helpful for understanding how to take advantage of social media. It talks about things like posting in the right places, search engine optimization, following similar artists to attract new audiences from those artists, etc. If you don't want to invest the time into doing the research on how this all works though (which is understandable because it definitely takes time), I'd advise trying to post your work in as many places as possible.

Instead of just having it on Tapas, or deviantart, promote your comic by posting your work on places like Pixiv, Artstation, etc etc. Try to spread it as much as possible. You can also try doing collaborations with other artists, viewer giveaways, stream yourself on twitch drawing a page or two of your comic, start a youtube channel. Most of these won't see huge returns individually, but all together they may draw more eyes to your work. At the end of the day, gaining traction is all about consistently pushing your work in as many places as possible.

I've also found moderate success as well in some discords for different fandoms. Fan art i've done for things like Epic7 or Fate Grand Order has landed me on occasion a few commissions here and there, then through word of mouth other people hear about my work and it can grow that way too. You could try something similar as well. Either way, good luck with your comic!

I'm going to echo what Keanfox said, as an artist myself I have collaborated on occasion with writers for free but most of the time it just ends up stopping after a few weeks as well. I guess to expand on his point and other points that have been made though, I think it helps to set a clear goal and be forthright about your intentions.

Most of the time I realized that writers looking for artists here weren't really looking for long term collaborations but instead just wanted to share ideas and do smaller projects. That might be conjecture on my part but I feel like that's why most collab projects tend to fizzle out after a couple weeks. That being said, it never hurts to sneak in some art practice for yourself, someone else mentioned that just having enough basics skills to put your ideas on paper visually can help a lot with the creative process when making a manga.
