Okay, this is gonna sound strange but..... I don't know who I am
I mean I know a lot about me, I know what I like what I don't like.. but I don't know me e___e My likes and dislikes are so broad that I feel like there's no single direction for me to go =3= Like I have no outer identity, I'm not always realistic but I'm not always cartoony either, I don't know my own style, how do you even make your own style?!?!? Q^Q
The reason I bring this up is because of branding, I mean on deviantart and in real life the way artists attract business and get more popular is by branding themselves, giving off a certain vibe and advertising themselves as themselves(hopefully this is making a little bit of sense). Like for instance
They all present themselves a different way according to their style, personality, and general tastes. Popularity and how much business you have is based off of two things, your skill which all three of the people I mentioned have an immense amount of and the way you present yourself(this includes how you decorate your page, your style, how you interact with people/fans, how much information about yourself you give to others, and connections, like websites and events you will be attending where your fans can see more of your art and connect on a personal level). Me, I do almost none of this, according to my presentation I'm almost an empty character =_= See the problem is I don't know how I want to present myself
But that's where you all come in, I need you all to criticize me!
I want to know what I'm doing wrong, tell me what about me bothers you, what would you like to see me doing more of(whether its something you feel is lacking in my artwork or something you feel is lacking from me as a person), how do you see me?
If I decided to do commissions or to sell prints of my art would you be interested? If not, what would make you more interested?
Don't be afraid to speak up, you won't hurt my feelings, in fact speaking up with show me that you care~
