The 101 Guide To Marketing For Artists
Slowly I get to catch up with deviations on here, now I just need to make use of the journals more often:)
There are some things I would be glad, someone would have told me earlier... 
Marketing is such a thing - since I´m freelancing 5 years now it is save to say that is no accident that I´m happily blessed with the "just right" clients and it all boils down to be due to authentic marketing. Honestly- I embrace everything that has to do with it, below you find my write up to get a better understanding of what it is all about.
I always found interest in psychology and marketing but when I jumped on the freelancing train 5 years ago I especially embraced anything that I could find to help me understand, use and practice marketing as a way to keep myself busy with work that I love to do and to collaborate with people who respect what I do.
In the process I learned much from many different experts and in this post I will forward what I´ve learn

Figure Drawing practice
Reference video here:

I don't think I did the model justice, especially in the 5-min pose (watch the video and compare to see what I mean). I think that's great that she challenged me that much, though! That perspective is so fascinating! Now I'm aware that I have a problem. The question is how to go about fixing it!

Figure Drawing Practice (July 16th 2018)

Figure Drawing practice
Reference Video here:

Took a break from doing these over the weekend and came back refreshed and energized to be doing them again. Sometimes part of self-care is stopping and checking the energy flow. I think I’ll be taking weekend breaks (at least, from figure drawing) more often!



Colin/Collin Byrd
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
I'm a perpetual Student Cartoonist who's always on the move. And yes, that's how I introduce myself.

My name is Collin "SkipperWing" Byrd (the "SkipperWing" part comes from the Skipper's cap I love to wear, and the last part of my name. i.e. "skipper's cap" + "byrd's wing = y'know. Get it?) I'm a "cartoonist," because it gets old telling people "yes, I'm an illustrator, yes, I do comics, yes I do animations/cartoons, and NO, these are not mutually exclusive." I'll even do them for you if you pay me a pretty penny!

But mainly, I'm hear to showcase my work, because DA seems to be one of the best places on the web to do so, and maybe make a little bit of money. And write walls of text. You'll come to appreciate that.or not.

Take a peek, and if you see what you like drop a fave and a comment. And if you don't like, just leave a comment! I won't bite. The important thing is to enjoy yourself. So enjoy!
Streaming! Working on comic stuff (Spoiler: Its The Crimson Fly​ #56!) Swing on by and drop a thought! Link:
