STARTING OUT AS AN ARTIST // Making an Online Portfolio

2924 ratings | 50596 views
Today, we're designing my own online portfolio, and I show you how! Starting out as an artist, there are many things I wish I would have known earlier and done properly. Having a properly set-up online portfolio, website and shop is one of them. Or how to build a brand, how to get my work out there, how to sell prints and make money from my art, all things like that. I'm hoping to make a whole little series about these topics, in hopes that I can share with you guys, what I've learnt through trial and error.

Regarding web design, Orbit Media has some good articles on using drop down menus. They can be quite hard to navigate (user design / experience) and your site has a lot of them (just coming from someone who funds art through web stuffs :P). But I do love your art :) But also maaayyybbeee try compressing your art to web standards? The site can take quite a while to load as well. But again, love your art and as an artist I can totally see where you're coming from in wanting to put the best most detailed versions up there because so much love and effort went into each one.

There's a lot I honestly want to learn from you, because I also plan on selling artworks online (although honestly, being in college isn't allowing me to do everything that I want sadly). Could you include in your tutorial series how payment works online and how to work it out, and what is the most effective way in selling your works? Annnnd, tips on getting commissions? Thank you sm, watching your videos relieves my stress ahahaha

Awesome. Never thought about making a site. Would probably make a better idea than using my deviant art

I'm considering a few different courses/degrees in animation but I wanted to hear what your experience has been like a rmit? Specifically the vibes of other students, I find that if majority of other students are lazy that can negatively affect me as I like the competitiveness of working with hard workers/talented people I guess. I've already got a degree in film & television so I kinda know what I'm looking for. I really like the sound of rmit but I'm from Sydney and idk if it'll be worth it to move to Melbourne haha. OH and also are the teachers genuinely passionate about what they're teaching? I've had some teachers that literally said, "I only care about getting paid", and they were really difficult to learn from. But I've had teachers that showed genuine passion for whatever they were teaching and it was great (Y).

Cool tutorial, thanks! Just one thing: DPI/PPI has no meaning when it comes to digital presentation. 72 DPI means 72 dots will be printed per inch. In digital presentation (web design), what matters is the pixel dimensions and 72 x 72 pixels will still be 72 x 72 pixels no matter what the DPI is - it can be 72, and it can be 300 DPI. DPI matters only when printing.. the higher the DPI is, the more dots you'll have per inch (assuming the printer can get to that density of dots), the pixels will be smaller to get to your desire printing size and the quality will be better. For example: if you want to print a 5 x 5 inch print at 300 DPI, you'll need to use a file that is 1500 x 1500 pixels big (at least, compressing is easier then enlarging). Printing the same 1500 x 1500 pixel painting as a 10 x 10 inch print will produce a 150DPI print, meaning the dot will be bigger and more noticeable. Point being - there's no meaning for DPI in web design, just the pixel size :)

It'd be cool if you critiqued other artist websites sent from your viewers? Give 'em some tips & exposing them to a different set of audience they might not get outside from their friends & family??

I hope you can make a video about how to gain an online following. I've been trying so hard but I am stuck on the same amount of followers for months! I don't even think most of my followers are artists but those auto follow accounts on IG. 😞

I’m so excited for the upcoming content! I’ve recently started to try taking my art seriously. It’s been difficult to get a following, specially for someone as terrified of social media like me. Also I want to start participating in cons. Im very scared of that because of my social anxiety... but let’s hope it works

Anto Saha (11 months ago)
Maybe do a video on how to promote your art or shop without spaming or coming out as pretentious? I'm not sure if it's a good topic, but I've always had trouble with putting my work out there as well as a mentally of "why would anyone wanna pay for this?" It's probably just all in my head.

Am I the only one that loves his voice? It's so soft XD Btw, I love these tips and information! I am currently thinking in starting to post my art more seriously online, but I'm little scared that some random people may steel it....However, I love these type of videos and they are a great help for people who are lost in this process of commercializing their own art. Awesome job!

Hey hieu, I'm an art student and I paint with oils. I know my work is good, but I have no idea how to get into galleries. Could you make a video about artists statements, resumes and propositions for shows?

Madeline Tran (11 months ago)
Awesome to see how much you’ve grown. Can’t wait to actually use your website to actually buy one of your works (but mean while my bank account is crying) 😅
mk (11 months ago)
what do you think of watermarking art even if it's for a portfolio? i have had people try to steal my art before and pass it off as their own. this has also never happened to me but i've seen a few artists who had their work stolen and then sold for profit :/ i guess a portfolio should look really professional and a watermark might ruin that but i can't help but be paranoid
kelogsloops (11 months ago)
It's a bit tricky, because you don't want your folio to look crappy. But I usually make my images compressed so that even with work stolen, not much can be done. i.e making them low dpi, limiting quality, sizing appropriately.

I love seeing some good art with some good web layouts LOL everything looks so stunning and organized; it's satisfying Quick thing: I was viewing your exhibitions, and there was a typo in 2019's. In "Haven Gallery & Modern Eden Gallery - Northport, NY, USA & San Farncisco, CA, USA," San Francisco is misspelled. Just thought you should know to fix it! On that topic, I would love to hear you talk more about how it's like having an exhibition! The hard work, how it came about, other obligations, etc! To me, it's an unfathomable and intimidating accomplishment, so hearing your experiences would be interesting and insightful. Thanks for making these videos. Although I've chosen a different path for now, they bring me a lot of joy and inspiration!
kelogsloops (11 months ago)
oh god, not san farmcisco!!! THANK YOU!! I'm surprised somebody actually even dug that far already... I haven't even announced it! It's still in the works and in its very early stages, but I'm very excited and I can't wait to get it out there.
VainHarmony (11 months ago)
LOL yeah you wouldn't want it mistaken with its twin farmcisco. Awesome! I wish you the best in navigating the scene and congrats on your first solo exhibition!
kelogsloops (11 months ago)
THANKYOU! I'll fix that typo hahahah... farncisco..... Seriously though, I love that topic! I'd definitely love to talk about exhibiting as it's something I'm still relatively new to and am only learning the ropes now!
