How many art webs/communities are you active in?

:iconemmil:
emmil Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Like uploading arts regularly, posting journals, talking in forums, joining contests, etc... I've been wanted to spread my "kingdom of art" in other art webs/communities but always fail because I'm lazy to keep uploading 1 art in many webs/blogs, etc on 1 day... DX Any tips to make this task less monotonous, but more fun to do?

i have an account on shadowness, but they don't have a freakin' text submission interface (the last time i checked) so they aren't particularly supportive of writers.  mostly, it's just dA.  there's enough going on here to keep most anyone occupied.

I've been on DeviantART for a long time now and I love it =) I haven't tried any other art sites so unfortunately I can't help you there. Have you tried uploading your art to Facebook? Millions of people use Facebook so your art would get a lot of exposure =D

Perhaps you could advertise your Facebook account on DeviantART and your DeviantART account on Facebook? =)

Not many any more. I used to like Gfxartist okay but it shut. I tried Conceptart but I hate the forum setup. I completely forgot about Artwanted, I should pick that one up again.

There don't seem to be a lot of general art communities around that have an active community and functional gallery/portfolio system.

I have joined several deviantart groups but I haven't been able to find anywhere else to really join. I'm looking for somewhere to get help learning to draw but there really doesn't seem to be a place for that online.

we should learn by ourself via free tutorials, no one is willing to spend their time to teach us personally without payment I think

I tried that but I've never found any free tutorial I've come across as helpful. They're very vague and none of them really show me how to do anything.

I really like Oekaki.nl, you can draw directly on there and get comments and votes on it. Also a forum to upload art and talk. :3
I'm also member of 2 other sites, but those have nothing to do with art (although I did post some of my art there).

This, and flickr. I used to do old school personal web pages until about 2007, and since either deleted or lost the passwords for the others which I assume are long gone. It's funny because the average user on the flickr site is about the opposite of here- it's mostly male, and older. All hiding behind their cameras. And about as good for conversation as a door :|.

Currently I post my art on my web site, my blog, here, Facebook and Instagram.

I used to have an account on Elfwood, deleted it recently. Also on Shadowness, deleted it recently. On several other networks too, deleted all that.
I post on Behance too, but that is a different type of community and different work fits there.

$10 a year is spare change, cheaper than deviantART premium anyway.. but hey to each his own :)

deviantART and all such sites have their own terms of use and they can change it at any moment (happens with social networks all the time). So I prefer to have my own haven where I'm the boss, and can do anything I want exactly the way I want to.

I use DA. In the past I used DA then I stopped, then I started back about a year ago using it more and more as I became bored of Facebook.

I do this now. I use DA, Tumblr, Facebook Page, Personal Blog, Blogger, Pintrest and Twitter.

I learned that you can hotlink you images from DA. (I know how to write web code) so now I hotlink my images from DA to My Personal Blog, Blogger, Pintrest, and Tumblr. I'm selective of what I show on Tumblr to keep it my safe site for showing off the best of my work, but not so much on my other sites. I post Links from DA to my Facebook Page (I'm not popular on Facebook but that's what I do) and my FB page feed is linked to post to Twitter through TwitterFeed on auto. I post to DA first all the time and then later on I pimp out the images to other sites. It doesn't make me popular but it has increased my traffic to incoming links back to my DA.

I use the share buttons that allow you to quick post from DA to other social sites (Pintrest, Facebook Page, sometimes Twitter and Tumblr) I Set up my Personal blog sets to post later down the road so it looks like I'm updating content every 2 weeks. I Host my own Wordpress Blog, so that's where I make internet money off of my images. I plan on using Blogger more as my content builds on DA and I get the time.

My reasons for doing it that way is because some people never leave their favorite sites.

perhaps that's why tumblr more popular than blogspot/wordpress, because tumblr is easier to share??

:icondarkprincearmon:
DarkPrinceArmon Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah DA has that auto share button right next to the art you post up. It makes it convenient to share to tumblr. Might make it convenient for blogger too, but I use Pintrest and Tumblr to see if I get collectors. Never know what people are collecting on those networks because it so easy to look like your not marketing or something.

I find Facebook to be a sanitized experience which makes you look like your trying for hits and likes, so it really comes down to popularity of style and content. They have a weird tracking style with there pages so you can expose people to content but doesn't mean they will like it, click it, or comment much if you are looking for that kind of feedback.

I'm sure if you had a really popular style and you use my method for cross posting to the social networks you can get a lot of feedback to your DA account from the outside. As for me I still need to polish my niche.

It seems the deviations we shared from DA to Tumblr, can't be found by tag searching. So perhaps it's better to just reupload the files at tumblr :(

IDK... I have been able to add search tags from DA tumblr share (just go to advance options after you hit the share button), I do know if you use a saturated tag your stuff will be buried under a lot of other post. I usually tag my handle as well. #darkprincearmon

saturated tags??
Reply
:icondarkprincearmon:
DarkPrinceArmon Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
tags that everyone uses, like art, illustration fine art, design... those would be saturated with people who do the same work. Not to say they are bad to use, but just to say that if you want to distinguished yourself it would help to use a tag or two that will say this is yours, like your name or your internet handle. That way if someone finds themselves liking your work and they look things up through tags, they can just look for your specific tag and it should pull up only what you create. It may even help search engine results from google and such, but I'm no master at optimizing for search engines.
