But like how do you actually sell your art. Do you ship it to them or do you take a picture of it and sent it to them or what, and if you ship it to them do you do prints or the original painting

Jill Marie Hungerford (3 months ago)
Sorry, I gave up watching this, as the music was so distracting! Please redo or edit this video and turn it down after the first 10 seconds. And yes, it would help to shade down the reflective light as well. Best of luck.

can you not include this music in the background. It is a little distracting and makes it hard to understand what you're saying
Rasheen Smith (4 months ago)
Lower the music volume

your advice is really useful, but next time plz make sure that your voice is louder than the song that you used, or that the song is softer than your voice :))0

Luck is sadly a big factor. Some people gain 10k in a month. I, personally, have been an Instagram artist for about 2 years, and still have under 1k.

In case there’s a lot of others like me, just want to let you know I had to stop watching as the music was too loud for your voice and I just couldn’t concentrate on what you were saying- however I’m gonna check out ya insta. Just thought you may wanna keep in mind when doing your next vid🙈🙂😘🙏💚✨

Tips on This Video: 1. CHOOSING A USERNAME - That's art related. If not you don't attract your market audience. Instead of Mia, put Mia_is_drawing, etc. There are exceptions but still. 2. WHAT TO POST She gives suggestions - you can do your Art before/after, doodles, wip (work in progress), fanart, tutorials, step by step, on top of finished drawings. 3. HOW TO GAIN FOLLOWERS She recommends "fan signs" (4:34), she would dm (direct message) an instagram account and say "I will do a fan sign for you". In exhange, that other account would post the fan sign she did. 4. ART COLLABS Follow Art Accounts, be friends with them and Be Active (best advice in my opinion), not just to get something in return, but also because you like that account. Be honest, don't be mean. 4.1. BE ACTIVE She also says don't be inactive and just follow and never engage, never comment even. 4.2. You can try shoutout for shoutout or follow for follow. She doesn't do it anymore. 4.3. POST ART ON OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS to give your Instagram more attention. You can get It on Twitter or Tumblr (My tip: Search in Reddit for Art/digital drawing subreddits and If you're allowed to, share the instagram link to your picture. Remember to engage with fellow artists) 4.4. Get famous people to notice your art work, she mentions some tyler oakley guy, or other art pages that post and share art. 5. ART COLLABS - You work with another artist, and each of you post that artwork on your account. And that's a way to attract more followers. 6. OTHERS Post regularly, she says It's best If It's everyday or at least every other day. To post once a week is not enough. But still, quality is a priority. She says that If you post daily but not quality drawings people won't like to follow you. 7. HELPFUL APPS - Instagram and Phonto ( A watermark app so even If people steal your art you can kinda prove It's yours. For example, I would put @m.g_comics on my drawing so even If someone else posts It there's my username, shining there, saying there's a lie.) 8. TAKING PICTURES - Try to use a good quality camera and white light (outdoors, sunlight). If It's night/dark wait until next day. Stage your pictures so they look good, If there's trash around It won't look attractive. 9. It all takes hard work, luck, timing and being patient. When she started an account there were many art contests, so she had luck there. 10. Give a thumbs up to this video, she may have gotten music wrong but making a video and gathering this tips requires effort <3

IMPOSSIBLE MUSIC. PURE DISTRACTION.

What a waste of energy listening to your banter.

I think being active isn't that important most of the time. A week without a drawing is no problem. Especially for portrait artists like me who take 3/4 days per drawing, it's hard to post a lot. Maybe it's just because I am just like that, but I never unfollow people because they haven't posted in a while. They could be busy with a detailed drawing or even something not art related. I even follow someone who took a year break from Instagram. If you like someone's art, being active doesn't have that much to do with it, or at least to me.
M.G. Comics (1 year ago)
When the algorithm changed quality became the most important. So you're good! But at the time this video seems to be posted quantity was still more important. Ideally for followers thought, It should be both, though quality as a priority. I find that If I don't post at least every other day I start to lose though :( So Idk what happens.
