so Im a really young kiddo (14) and I wanna start an art blog and I was wondering if you could give me some tips/pointers?? I just think it would be kinda fun but idk what to actually do, and if It's even a good idea. I don't have a tablet or anything and I'm a bit self conscious but I think it could be fun, so thanks for the help when/if you see this :)
-make a cool url B) (that actually doesn’t matter but i dont have any ideas so :’))
-if you don’t have a tablet, maybe try traditional art? and just post pictures of it :O
-remember that first 5 tags under the drawing are the most important
-be kind to your followers! remember they are people behind the screen!
-if anyone points out a mistake in your art, apologize and fix that mistake and try not to do it again (to avoid tumblr discourse and such)
-have fun and remember that having an art blog is a great way of saving your art for the future, that you can look back on!
-do it for yourself
-if you really want to capture attention, focus on fandom stuff for now, and then move onto original characters and such, people are usually more drawn into fandoms so ya
-crop your drawings!!
-reblog those drawing request memes, with emojis or color palletes!
-be patient, tbh this is mostly abt luck, my art was overlooked most of my life until i started making animatics so idk, it might take a while before your art gets noticed
-if you’re insecure abt your art (like me) shitpost with your art and some fandom characters! it usually gets notes!! ppl love a good chuckle @ a meme
-try new ideas! practice a lot so you can improve and follow a lot of artists, including the smaller ones! seeing other people’s artystyles can really influence you!
-have fun! and remember it’s not a race
