Here’s the process of this speedpaint commission I did over here. It’s been too long since I remembered to record my process, so thank you to @traven-xiv for the suggestion (and for lending this lovely boy to paint, aha)
oh yeah I hate people making money off of others hard work especially since so many youtube animators I know are students or aren’t earning much at all
but i think even with compilations you wont end up making much at all
because it takes animators so long to make things usually longer than other content creators and to really make an earning off of you tube you need to be uploading 10 minute videos at least once or twice a week.
and since speedpaints don’t garner many views either we are kinda stuck.
plus there’s the whole “your videos wont show up for subscribers if they havent watched your videos in a while) so if youre an animator and dont post for a couple of weeks when you do post less people will see it
I get comments all the time from people telling me on videos I uploaded months ago that they never got notified, youtube is a mess
This is another reason so many artists are turning to patreon its kind of a god send for animators. (Im so dang grateful for my lil handful of patreons you have no idea they help me save up for art equipment and getting my art made into prints and pins)
but even then a lot of our subs dont have the money to support us directly on patreon so its like being between a rock and a hard place trying to earn money from your art, unless youre really famous or have a good job in industry or get a partnership 3rd party
