How To Start with Art Online: a blog about how to start your artwork career.
Art Online is all about how to get started in the professional art world. It offers advice on how to approach agents, galleries and collectors; what to send them; and how to promote yourself.
The first thing you need to know is that there is no such thing as an art degree; at least not one that prepares you for a career as an artist. If you want to become a professional artist, you will have to teach yourself on the job. But not everything you learn on the job has to do with art.
In this blog post, I would like to tell you how to start with art online.
Your first step is to create an account on a popular art forum. There are many websites where you can have your own portfolio and get feedback from other artists. You need it to show off your best work.
After creating your account, you should also start creating a website which will hold all of your artwork. In order to get more inspiration, visit some other artist’s websites in order to find out the way they present their work. Also, use some free software of creating website such as Wix in order to make it easier for you.
Then you should start upload your work, be it drawing or digital art. You can create a separate section for each type of work, or even categories for each single piece. However, don’t forget that the main thing is to present your work and not make fancy sections! If visitors are interested in seeing more of your artwork, they will search through the website. Make sure that all of your images are high resolution since they will be displayed at large size.
Also don’t forget that there are many other ways of starting with Art Online such as using social media and various sites and communities related to art, such as Deviant
We believe that the best way to learn art is to do art. So we are going to start with a blog about how to start your art career.
We have a pretty good idea of what will be in it. We’ll cover everything from how to make a portfolio, how to price your services and how to find clients…
…And we’ll also cover other things that we haven’t thought of yet, but we hope you will!
This is not going to be an art blog with a lot of pictures of paintings and sculptures. It’s going to be a business blog. Because the biggest mistake you can make as an artist is thinking you’re doing anything else.
Thing is, there are already a lot of good blogs out there covering many aspects of art business: pricing, marketing, portfolios, client development, etc.
Artists and Art Collectors are looking for you. You can find them on art websites, art blogs, art magazines and art forums. The best way to find a collector is to collect them yourself. The more art you have in your portfolio the more collectors you will find.
The first place we recommend artists to start their career is with the biggest and most important online art community: DeviantArt.com, an online social networking site for artists and art collectors.
1) Sign up on http://www.deviantart.com – it’s free!
2) Start uploading your work onto your profile using their easy to use picture uploader and fill out the rest of your profile details including the description of the artwork that you are uploading; where you got your inspiration from; what kind of materials you used; how long it took to complete; how much it costed you to make; what kind of profit you want for it etc..
3) Find people who like your work or who might be interested in buying it by searching on the Tags section (at the top left hand corner). Type in some key words that depict what type of work that you do e.g.: Fantasy, swords, marble, dragons or anything else that describes your work
It is possible to get started in art without going to college. In fact, most of the artists who have made a living from their artwork never went to college. But that does not mean that college is not a good idea, because it is. In fact, it’s very helpful for an artist to learn about the history of art, the psychology of perception and creativity, and the mechanics of materials and methods.
Thing is though, there really isn’t much that you cannot find online these days. Some classes can be taken online or at least portions of them can be taken online.
You can find free videos on Youtube showing you how to paint or draw whatever it is you want to learn to do. You can even find tutorials on how to put together your portfolio if you have trouble with that part of things!
Hello everyone! I’m here to tell you how to be a good boy or girl and start your own art career….
Art is something that people really really love and appreciate. You just have to look at the “art world” as it is called, and you will see that there are many people who do love and appreciate it. So why not become part of it? Why not sell your work to these people who love art so much? I mean, you don’t have to be famous like Picasso or Van Gogh, but you could still make some money off of your art.
You might be thinking “how could I even start an art career?” Well, the first thing you should do is go to school for art. Take as many classes as possible and learn all the techniques you can. Then when you can draw something well enough, find a job that allows you to draw pictures for a living. Or if that isn’t possible, try selling your work on websites like DeviantArt or RedBubble.
Don’t be discouraged if no one buys any of your work right away; it’s hard to get into the art world! But don’t give up either; this is a great way to make money: selling your art online!
