I'm connecting with my fans and friends on several social media sites to talk about the future. Yes, DeviantArt is a social media site, at least as far as this post is concerned.
Working on social media presence teaches you a lot. The ability to set aside time for different activities, and how to effectively divide your attention, becomes a much more important part of workflow. On facebook, I have posted a new image every weekday for the last three months, and the feedback received from each has been phenomenal in terms of connecting with fans, personal growth, and especially in understanding the market in which I make my living. I've also been managing to post a new piece on DeviantArt every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday! However, the pace is fairly brutal, especially as I am doing plenty of commercial work at the same time.
Starting this month of May, I'll be dropping to a more friendly Sketch Mondays and Final Fridays update schedule.
Definitely make sure to follow me on Facebook - www.facebook.com/demonui to get more periodic updates on final artworks, links I find interesting, and other artists that you should know!
Recently I've also re-energized my Instagram account -instagram.com/demonui/ - Instagram is a great platform for behind the scenes, close-ups, and process shots. I'll be posting that sort of thing over there going forward.
