ALSO i am literally the most social person in the world so TALK TO ME??!!!??
illustration wip for art class
ignore my nasty ass carpet ahah
oh this is actually something that i struggle with a bit too!!! i really like sharing my art but sometimes its like… i dont wanna shove my sketchbook in ur face……
some of the stuff that ive noticed works well tho is
A) fanart! when you draw something that lots of other people can relate to, it makes it a lot easier to bring it up and have it noticed~ obviously tho if fanart is just not your thing (and lots of people just arent into it) then dont force yourself!!!! your original art can be just as great and well-recognized, it just might take a while longer
B) art friends!! as an artist, i ADORE seeing other people’s art! it doesnt even matter how “”good”” it is i just really enjoy looking at what people are imagining and creating and i am FAIRLY SURE that the majority of artists feel the same~ im lucky enough to have some really good irl friends who are artists and writers and such, so we always share what we’re working on and its a lot of fun! if youre in any art classes or just around creative people, id be willing to bet that many of them would love to talk with you and look at your art~
and C) draw in public! (this is kiind of a cop out but im putting it here anyway.) even (or maybe especially) around nonartists, any sort of drawing can get recognized and praised. ive had random strangers comment on my art as i doodle at starbucks or on the subway or w/e and its simaltaneously a confidence booster and a tiny bit creepy, depending. clearly this isnt the way to go for productive critiques, but it can be fun to get some attention hehe
damn this got long
if this totally wasnt what you were asking and you wanted to know about showing people your Real and Finished and Serious art and not just casual stuff, you should talk to “headerz”. shes really sweet and has gone to a bunch of portfolio review days and would have a lot more to say in that area!
