Hey guys,

Question: Would you guys be interested if I made a facebook page for new pieces, sketches, and stuff?  I wasn't considering it before, but it's been mentioned to me a couple of times recently.  What do you guys think?

Now to business, this is just a short update to say I'm still here haha.  I didn't even realize that it's been that long since I last came on dA, let alone update or post something new.  I've just been keeping busy with a lot of stuff, work, projects etc., that I can hopefully show you more of in the coming months.  Unfortunately, that also means not that much new stuff to post up for the time being.

I do have a short backlog of some stuff that I've been meaning to put up but haven't yet, so I'll be doing that.  And then there's tumblr and instagram for sketches, WIPs, etfc. (though admittedly those have been a bit slow as well haha, oops).

And that's about it.  Until next time, which is hopefully sooner than last time.

Keep in mind it'll be one more thing to update, keep up with, distraction, etc. A Facebook page isn't always as glamorous as people make it out to be. Between here, Instagram, and Tumblr there are enough sites for people to follow your work. Believe me when I tell you unless you're a bigger brand with a million fans the engagement is going to be low. Facebook is an Internet highway of an overwhelming amount of content. People get caught in scroll-lock. There's just so much to look at, breaking away from the scroll to Like or Share something happens very little unless it strikes people's emotional chords. Then things go viral. I see too many people and projects get caught up in Facebook and it just isn't worth the hassle. You pump all this energy and content out just to get 3 likes even though you have over 2,000 people liking the page. Isn't worth the hassle. Instagram and Tumblr are set up in such a way that celebrate likes and comments. Facebook is just a giant watercooler and only a few select get to sit in the middle. The rest are on their own to get the attentions of others.

you shouldn't, because they'll know where you live, and then come to your house and hangout until you get really tired , and then creep you tell death, in a prank , and then you have nightmares, and then you wake up from that nightmare and go drink some water, and then you hear some noises in your house, and then you see a group of people in the living room, and then, you almost had a heart attack, and then they say calm down, were your followers, we want to talk about life and blah blah blah and stuff, and then you say why are you here without my permission!?, and they say we just we just told you..., and then you say i don't want to talk about life and blah blah blah, and then they get angry and eat you alive, and then you die, and then ummm idk.

If the content is different from other sites and/or you will be interacting with people differently to other sites then yes make a facebook.

If it's just another site to post the same work you have posted elsewhere already, then it's probably not necessary.

Yeah, I'm kinda split cause of that.  It would be pretty much the same work, but it would be a more direct way to interact with people and possibly open my stuff up for new people to see.  Right now I'm thinking it's not necessary, but it couldn't hurt?

Really depends on your target audience is whether FB will be useful to you. FB is really for a older crowd, where as instgram, twitter, are for a younger audience. I've seen some artists have luck with Pintrest too. I avoid tumblr because of the bad reputation it has. (Personal opinion.) Hangouts on G+ has a small nitch of artists who follow each other, but it is indeed small. Which for some the smaller intimate community means it can be more personal. 


I'll also second what rosythorns said with it's good to be on as many social media sites as possible. Also consistency is important when it comes to marketing your work.  A respectable flow of quality updates with personal flair is how people get a personal connection to you as the artist. Which is what they remember when they see your work.

I'd say it's good to be on as many social media sites as possible. I'd definitely follow you on FB, artists' updates pop up easier on facebook than eg. Tumblr where they can easily get lost in the immense dashboard feed. Different platforms work for different people I guess o_o

Yeah, I'm considering it for that reason pretty much.  I tend get overwhelmed with doing a whole bunch of social media sites, which is why I haven't as of yet.  Though since almost everything is linked up nowadays it seems pretty easy to integrate into one.... I dunno.  I'm most definitely overthinking this haha

I don't see how much good it'd do, but I don't have a tumblr or instagram so I wouldn't know. I don't see how it would hurt either though. So just do as you like and if it helps great, if not, well you shouldn't lose anything from it.

Arguments for it is that it just helps me reach more people, but then I've also heard doing that on facebook ranges from very hard to not worth it.  Tumblr and Instagram have been pretty good cause of the emphasis on sharing, but I dunno if I'd get that on facebook as well.  :P  Though like you said, I wouldn't lose much from it if it doesn't pan out.

Yeah, after asking around it seems like it's very hit or miss.

Followed you too.  I've been wanting to do more game related stuff, but I've just been really comics focus recently haha.
