Senza titolo-5 rido by Sciamano240

Do you remember my last journal, made for a milestone? It was in January 2016 and, from that day, we grew up even more. It's crazy if you think that I got so far in a year and it's all because of you.

More than 100k pageviews and more than 4000 watchers. I'd never imagine to get those numbers one day and now I feel accomplished, like I finally made something in my life.
At the same time I feel that I've got so far cheating, using fan arts to have more followers and views. My skills are still pretty mediocre and I know that: if I want to improve I have to work my ass off.

Patreon is going really good lately, but I should consider it like a little help rather than my work. Some of you probably already know that I'm looking for a "real" work because I can't live out of only Patreon and commissions. The real problem is not to find it, but to know that it may be something that moves me away from my dream of becoming an illustrator and concept artist. That's probably the main reason that got me stuck for months like that, after my degree in architecture.

Shout out to my awesome Patrons: you're the best ever!

I can't say that I'm not happy tho. When you do what you like and have people supporting you, is the best possible thing that can happen. I'm really grateful to you all and I'll do my best to give you everytime a better artwork.

Thank you guys, love you all!

:la: choir 

P.S. not everyone tho. Fuck the people who share online my Patreon stuff :D

Do not doubt your skills. You're an extremely talented artist.

Thanks. Unfortunately that's not the truth: my tecnique is pretty rough, slow and my knowing of anatomy is limited. I know that, but at the same time I don't dedicate enough time on exercises. I'm a lazy guy overall :D

There you go again. Always putting yourself down for no reason.
Stop it, bad, Sciamano. lol

Un risultato meritatissimo!
Nonostante il manga sia il mio obbiettivo principale, raggiungere obbiettivi come questo nell'illustrazione é qualcosa a cui ambisco e proprio persone come te mi danno l'ispirazione.
Complimenti Mirco, davvero!!

Grazie Giovanni! L'unica cosa che un po' mi deprime è il fatto che tutti i miei followers sono quasi tutti stranieri. Di gente che mi segue in Italia ce n'è davvero poca e non saprei proprio come fare per far fronte al problema ^^'
Redjet00 Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2016  Professional Digital Artist posso permettermi...
Il futuro é proprio fuori da qui!
(ps: Premettendo che io sono a zero ancora, gli unici piccoli riconoscimenti che ho avuto provengono da Francia e Giappone, quindi penso di capirti perfettamente)
Vedo solo che stai andando alla grande, per favore continua su questa strada, il tuo patreon sarà davvero una risorsa unica per te (come ti dissi a Lucca) e se ci son solo stranieri, VA BENISSIMO, anzi, meglio!!
Davvero, grande!
In Italia probabilmente capiranno quando ormai sarai troppo grosso per loro.
