AAAAAHHH I FINALLY HAVE MY REDBUBBLE ACCOUNT UP AND RUNNING YAY! I’ll try to upload new pieces a few times a week, but if I don’t I’m sorry, college keeps me rather busy. Please go and check it out, I’m currently saving up for college for the next 4 years as I won’t have much time for an actual job (Digipen is insanely work-heavy and art supplies are expensive as heck) so every purchase counts! I’ll be uploading fan art of undertale, steven universe, and other random pieces of art work as you see here. So thank you guys for checking it out if you do, I will also put the link in my blog description as this post will probably get lost in the void of shitposts galore. OH and if any of you want a special piece of art made, just hit me up via messaging and I’ll draw it as soon as I can (I will notify you when it’s done) and post it on RedBubble for you and others to see (unfortunately I just don’t have the kind of money and time to make custom orders and ship it to people separately, so I’m sorry about that). You do also have to be following me to get a “commission” (I put it in quotes for the reason as stated above), and it’s rude to just follow me and then unfollow me, you know what I mean (although feel free to hit that follow button if you like my art, it means a lot)? It would also be awesome if you could kind of get the word out about my store and get the ball rolling, thanks guys, keep being rad <3
hi! I've been following for a while now with my personal account and you motivated me into starting my own art blog. Do you have any tips to give on how to gain popularity on Tumblr?
awesome! thanks <3
stay productive and active by posting relatively often – if you don’t have finished pieces to post all the time, you can post WiPs, studies, workspace shots, photos of your tools, prints/merch you’re selling, events you’re attending, etc. try to make most stuff relevant to your work, people who follow you will want to see that instead of too many personal posts. also if you work in a lot of totally different mediums/genres you may even want to separate those out into separate blogs, i.e. one for illustration and one for photography
draw fanart, people are more likely to get hype about characters they already recognize and relate to. just don’t overdo it or you’ll look sellout-y. make sure to tag it!
use the queue to your advantage, this is one of my favorite things about tumblr. schedule stuff to post when most people will be awake, and queue up some extra stuff to put up when you don’t have any new content
some people do giveaways where you have to reblog to enter. tutorials also seem to be popular
