I have but one wish for artists of the internet…Know the difference between OC (Original Characters) and FC (Fan Characters), there’s nothing more depressing/infuriating than trawling through oceans of “OC” Pony/Sonic/Invader Zim/Homestuck/Whatever characters. I want to be able to look at new, exciting and fresh ideas; not re-colours and characters based in existing universe’s. I don’t mind fan created characters (hell, I’ve made my fair share of them in my 22 year lifespan), Just tag images appropriately please.
I'm a graphic designer, getting into doing t-shirts, and I was wondering what your experience with Society6 has been like. I've heard good things thus far. Also, thanks for drawing sweet illustrations, and keep up the good work!
Hi there, Thanks for the comment :)
Truth be told, so far I’ve sold one print, back when I started last year. I have a few friends that done quite well from selling on there. I think the problem lies with trying to find out what will grab people’s attention and trying to advertise yourself.
I’d say apply for an account, turning illustrations/designs from prints to mugs and pillows is really easy (just make sure to keep original files because they will require alternate formats for different products).You can easily link it to Facebook and Twitter so you can update your followers as soon as you post a new design.
Hope that’s helpful in some way, If you do get one be sure to let me know!
