My art tag is "shorelle draws", my taste is questionable at best.
So if all goes well, we’ll be heading up to Brisbane on 28-30 November this year! which also means I have about 2 months to make a frickload of prints to actually sell. ଘ(੭*ˊᵕˋ)੭* ̀ˋ
I’m excited but also super nervous because I’ve never tabled at a con before, and just to be really presumptuous and do some ~market research~… what sort of art prints/fandoms would you like to see?
(I’m currently mainly planning Star Wars, Adventure Time, Game of Thrones/ASOIAF, Avatar, maybe HP and Marvel and miscellaneous sci-fi/crossovers… in regular prints and bookmarks, maybe some stickers??) I’ll also be selling them online after the con
especially if I sell absolutely nothing there hahaha so please let me know if you have any suggestions! :D
Yes, it’s actually one of my favourite musicals ever!
Ahh that’s a cool comparison too – and I can totally see Anakin in a more villainous rendition of Defying Gravity. I think what we’re getting out of this is that Anakin was clearly meant for Broadway :P
Hiii and thank you so much!! (I’m a big fan of Matereya too and so glad she draws such awesome SW art :Db)
That sucks, though, I understand how difficult it can be when you’re around people who really hate/put down the things you love. Of course, trying to change anyone’s opinion is also a frustrating and generally futile effort, because these things can be very personal! (it could be they grew up with the OT and the PT really disappointed them, or it could be something else they feel strongly about.)
Personally, I’ve found the best way is to just adopt the “live and let live” attitude yourself, be open about the parts of Star Wars you like, try not to get too involved in arguments about it if it’s not a constructive discussion, generally when you’re just casually positive and good-humoured about something people will respond in kind or leave it alone. :) And of course, if you’re feeling run down about it, fandom and finding people who like the PT and the parts of Star Wars you want to talk about can help a lot!
Hi anon, I’m glad you started an art blog too! :D
Hmm to be honest I’m still not too sure how it works either, apart from “keep posting art” – I started off with not many followers for a long time, and it’s just slowly built up over time as I’ve posted more stuff (and hopefully also improved over time!)
Being active in the community helps too, so following and talking to artists whose work you enjoy (and if you draw fanart, people in the same fandom) can make people aware of your blog and will generally make being on tumblr more fun :) I’m not sure how long you’ve been on tumblr and you might know this already, but when tagging your posts only the first five tags show up on the public tag search, so that’s something to keep in mind too!
And of course, draw the things you enjoy drawing and don’t stress too much about numbers (though I understand that getting recognition and feedback can be really encouraging too), because it doesn’t determine the worth of your art or how much enjoyment you can get from it :) Good luck with your artblog!!
Hi anon! Ahh this has come up a few times… I’m so sorry I’m so terrible at continuing things (because I have the world’s worst attention span), but a Luke version would be awesome, if I get any ideas I would love to try it! :D
Heya! Sooort of – in that I’ve only seen the two new reboot movies, and thought they were fun, but I still need to watch the actual show! (I’ve heard it’s quite different in tone?)
I’m going to be really unimaginative and choose either Naboo or Coruscant :D
Because Naboo is just beautiful, and seems quite peaceful/progressive and a nice place to live. But I’d also like Coruscant because I’m a pretty big fan of big metropolitan cities too – there’s just so much variety and action. Not to mention the shiny modern/industrial aesthetic.
I imagine rent there would be insane, though – in reality I’d probably be a struggling engineer either on Coruscant or some other inner/mid-rim planet…
