Marsupial and pastry have united to create the most devastatingly awesome creature to walk this pretty blue planet! We shall rise above the petty squabbles of the other houses and win with our dignity still in tact. Considering who the other houses are, this really shouldn't be that difficult.


Vote, create, duel and Threadless with all of your heart! And do a little smack talking while you're at it. Also some GIFs of butts and dancing, because GIFs.

sigh. I'm just refreshing things on like five different sites and it's like the whole internet took the week off.

Wow Lidija, you are such a go getter. That is a ton of promotion; hopefully good things come from it.

All this talk to TeePublic and Redbubble it intriguing. Of the two, which is better for the artist in the long run: payment, rights, etc.? Anyone know off hand?

Also, it seems like all the House excitement has worn off. It became pretty evident when the All House Brawl entry I supplied only got 187 scores; there was zero community excite for that Brawl. The House deal should either end with a victor or have some new excitement generated by new/interesting stakes.

I thought the houses thing was just gonna roll on, with various challenges included once in a while? Maybe everyone is just busy with the end of summer and getting back into responsible living :)

Yeah voting is generally very low, all of mine scoring right now have 200-300 votes, pretty sad. Like there was a big explosion of things happening during the last few months and now ppfffffffffffffffft.

In terms of benefits of various sites, why not just go for both? It's a little extra work but can't hurt in the long run. I have no idea what the profits are like on any of those, and I think nobody can really tell you because your success will largely depend on a) how much effort you put into it in terms of promoting, adjusting to the zeitgeist of that site etc, and b) how well accepted your style of work is by that particular community. So I think trying it out for a few months is the best recipe.

We're trying to get some new things going, but with certain house leaders going missing it's tough to make any decisions.

Do you guys want to do a Platypie house collaboration? :-D

also did you guys notice how the forum sort of died again? It was booming for a while with the initial enthusiasm from the houses but I sort of feel that apathy is crawling in again.

I think Facebook is to blame lol. Everyone got used with getting a notification where they left a comment so it's easier to follow. Here you have a little more work to read newer comments, which it's not a problem, but when you're following a lot of blogs it gets time consuming. I'm limiting myself to follow only this thread, or else I would be on tless all day when i have work to do haha! Also, I suck at multitasking so when I'm here, I'm not anywhere else like facebook or tumblr. It gets way too overwhelming :(

Platypie glory. Plus fun. :-D We could do a scene or draw different monsters since Halloween is coming up. Maybe a Frankenstein and we could each draw a different piece of it!

Whoa, a perfect example of me not keeping up is my last comment up there talking about something from the last page haha!

Also, Society6 really is for the famous and the artsy fartsy, cause I haven't sold a thing yet lol.I've been avoiding redbubble for the same reason Lidija is struggling with, cleaning up and formatting. That is the one part i can't stand the most!

Redbubble sounds like a pain, but I think I'll set up an account this weekend if I have time. MONEYYYY~ I think it's all worth it even if you just sell a couple of things. Because there is a person out there wearing your art or they have it on their wall or as a pillow. So awesome.

P.S. Is anybody doing stuff for Lion King? I'm going to start working on a couple of things soon, but have some extra ideas that I could toss out if anybody needs them.

No Lion King from me. I might try the Redbubble and TeePublic things out. As said before, Society6 is for people with a following or are constantly posting stuff. I have sold one item but it was because someone emailed me about a specific item and I posted it. Fame is nice but money is better because poor.

Thanks Victor!!! Always nice to see losers maintaining their dignity! :)

The collab could be a big pumpkin with carved openings and different ghoulies peeking out of each?? I could do an initial sketch.

celandinestern
celandinestern profile pic Alumni

Also i'm thinking of writing up a simple business plan for my world domination campaign. So i don't get lost.

screw lion king, i think. They'll never pick me, plus downvoting, plus ain't nobody got time for that :)

I like the pumpkin idea, Lidija! :-D That would be so fun. Like a pumpkin haunted house or something.

Musarter

I have a great idea for a Halloween design that was originally going to be a 90s challenge design. I have zero time for it although I already have a sketch and references. Is there anybody that does Pop Culture designs that can be suggested or would be interested in hearing about it?

True… but who's losing the main comp? Ewww!

amaara

I'm doing one Lion King, I sketched and am now inking, but its not like a huge thing, just a drawing of adult Simba, but in a style I wanted to try out.

and yesss for the collab!!

S6 just isnt worth the time/effort for all the dust my account there collects.

Hi guys, damn work is ruining the only social life i have, you guys :-( No Lion King from me but I am down for any monster house collab, I shall keep checking in until Monday when i will be back with a vengeance, I have also been busy doing a few daily site submissions :-)

So we're going to get an initial sketch, right? :-)

It doesn't seem like there's a ton of people doing Lion King subs, but there is still two weeks. I'll probably start working on mine next week, then wait until the last minute to submit.

Chayground

Redbubble is the only one of those sites I've ever made anything on (and that was $25 total, but I spent about 8 hours getting all the formatting done).

Society 6 I've done a similar amount of formatting for (But have included my threadless designs on there as prints because of them being sister sites)

Neatorama I've been on for 2 weeks with some of my very old threadless and newer non threadless designs, but have only made $6 from selling 2 science shirts (although I'm going to try and do some more pop culture things to target their audience, as I genuinely love some pop culture things (I used to watch Doctor Who back in the 80s!) - some of my minimalism once might work on there, once I have suffered my 90 days of purgatory on threadless first - clearly nothing I do is likely to ever print on here, but I live in faint hope!

I thought perhaps my Baking Brad design might work on neatorama as I've seen several other breaking bad designs, and threadless won't take celebrity likenesses which is fair enough. Although perhaps that might also work on one of those daily sites that I'm not sure how to approach...

I was wondering if (once threadless turn it down of course, as threadless will always be the gold standard) I should submit my minimalism starfleet uniforms to this TeePublic place as people on here seem to genuinely like it. If I could figure out where on the net to promote it to actual trekkies/trekkers then I could possibly get a decent number of sales from it. What do you think?

I say do it! But then again I'm not sure, since officially we have to wait 90 days so we can use the design as a shirt somewhere else, but I've seen people not really waiting that long so I'm guessing there's no problem since threadless showed no interest on printing it. So I'm leaning towards yes! What does everyone else think?

Chayground

I was going to wait the 90 days for all of them (apart from Baking Brad which I haven't drawn yet and never subbed) :)

celandinestern
celandinestern profile pic Alumni

Maybe just sub on everything except tees until the 90 days are up?

sharkies finished at 3.35, not bad.

I'm up on Prints on Wood now. I think your style would fit there nicely, Tiff. Come join me? you have to pay 5 bucks to join the club but it looks like a nice place.

come, come!!! it's only starting out so there's not a huge crowd, the markups are ok and Terry and Eric and Tony Riff are there, from our gang. They might sink or swim but may not be bad to get in on the action early, just in case they become the next big thing :)

Time to vent...

My Aqua TV Show Show design finished with a 2.78. 339 votes, 67 fives, and 85 ones. It seems like most of the designs were downvoted. I finished scoring in the top 30, but still scored less than a 3. Even Alex Solis's two designs for the challenge scored below 3. The two highest scoring designs had some dope business going on...

http://www.threadless.com/adultswim/aqua-teen-cluster-bomb/

http://www.threadless.com/adultswim/fryaganda/

Read through the comments on the first link. I mentioned this funny business in another thread. It really defies belief.

I told myself I wouldn't complain this time. It really doesn't bother me as much because it's become the norm. I just can't believe the lengths people will go to in order to inflate their scores.

The people that do this kind of shit need to get their accounts suspended or something. Ugh.

celandinestern
celandinestern profile pic Alumni

The funny thing with those two assholes is that the incredibly low number of votes was working for them. that second guy has only 390 scores, out of that 194 fives, at least 150 of which he gave to himself. That means his actual number of voters is somewhere around 240. Less if we discount the additional ones his other asshole friend heaped on him.

Woah level 20!!! No longer in my teens :)

those two teachers subs have a long way to go though. Maybe i sub something new beforehand. Although with my current rate of business, maybe not :)

alrighty, next phase in my world domination plan - making some resources for Creative Market. This is what I came up with so far.

do you guys think that iphone is gonna get me into trouble? There is no logo but some of the icons are sort of real. I'm kinda paranoid about copyright etc. I can leave the buttons blank if you think it would be an issue.

Goldendust

I think you will be just fine with the way you've illustrated the "iphone" - they could be any app, really.

Hopefully it's small and imprecise enough to not matter much.

celandinestern profile pic Alumni

Thanks!! I'm pulling some cutey birds and animals from some of my patterns and I'll offer those up there as creature packs too. Fun times!!

I could join you in a 'do something to promote your artwork every day' thing? :D I'm not sure I can commit to actually make something every day but I could try to do something good every day in terms of cleaning up and posting work, drawing some new stuff, repurposing... or would that just defeat the point?

I gotta stop going to bed at 4 am, I feel like a dish rag.

I think it's just a good way to motivate yourself to do something concerning art or being creative every day, so why not? :-) But don't burn yourself out, Lidija.

awesome, I'm in :D I'm gonna be doin' it anyway, might as well put a name on it :D

heheh it's how I am, when I get excited about something it's always like 'ALL THRUSTERS ARE GO!!!' But I'll chill out after a while and find some sensible balance.
