I see lots of art work on instagram. Maybe you have to search and heart a few pics to get the recommended selection.
Tho, I haven't had too much luck on there. Only getting a few hearts. Maybe it's because I don't post there too often for the algorithm to kick in.:
Well, at that point all I can suggest is Twitter and maybe Instagram. It takes a bit to gain a following on Twitter, maybe Instagram too. Though, you'd prolly have to do something really big to get even a bit of a following...
I got to around 200-something followers on Twitter for posting about my custom Pokemon Pink game. I mean, it never hurts to try. It's not like you'll lose any of the followers you have now on DA and FB, right?
My apologies. I didn't know what your plan was.
Twitter is the best place I can think of for posting stuff. It's just that when you brought up harassment going on up there, I became worried about how people would treat you since, as I've told you, another person I know has been getting heat for tracing. I just don't want to see you get hurt. I guess I got a little sidetracked, sorry!
For me, I use Twitter the most out of all my social medias. It'd be really cool if I could interact with more people I knew on there. But I'm also really precautious.;;
You could also maybe record yourself making the art itself and upload the timelapse onto YouTube. Although, there tend to be rude people and bots on there. Don't even get me started on YouTube's horrific algorithm. Newer creators tend to get swept away into obscurity...
Stuff like hands and feet can be tricky. But if you keep practicing at them, you'll get the hang of it! I think you have the potential to draw great works of your own. You just need to ween off the tracing altogether, even if you admit it. I tell you this for your own well being.
Referencing off other art is fine to get accurate proportions. Just draw what you see, not just what you think you see. That's the best advice I can give you.
