Artist | Student | Varied
I'm a self taught artist, so my gallery is pretty amiture, but I am constantly trying new things and testing my skills as an artist. I also do a lot of writing and am working towards getting my fist book published. My overall goal in life is to become an aspired illustrator and work for a publishing company or to work on graphic novels. Either that or open up my own company using the front I have set up for my books, AKA Paws-Off-Incorporated... Whichever comes first

Interests

Donate

Back-Off-I-Bite has started a donation pool!
104 / 5,000
Tired of being kept in the dark about what all my stories are about?
Well wait no more! Every donation made will count towards new promotions that will reveal something new about the story each time. The more promotions I reveal, the more you'll find out about the story.

For every 10 :points: I get, I will post chibified versions of all the main characters in the story.
Once the pool adds up to 50 :points: I'll start posting age progressions of all the characters and a short story explaining what they were up to at each stage.
Once I hit 100 :points: I'll post a sneak peak of the map of the nation that the story takes place in.
Any 50 :points: increments reached after that point will reveal a variation of things depending on the date that the limit is reached.

If anyone is generous enough to pass on 20 or more :points: I'll draw one of the pets or mascots that appear in the story and feature a brief explanation as to why they appear.
If anyone donates 50 or more :points: I'll draw a full body sketch of a character complete with stats and a little bit of bio.
Any donations over 100 :points: get the option to request seeing any one of my characters in whatever situation they find (within reason) Whether its something a little risque, or just dressed up or mingling with another character of your choice.



All proceeds go towards upgrading the group :iconart-unite: to a SUpergroup

You must be logged in to donate.
Okay so here's another totally random thing thats been bouncing around in my head lately.... And yes, I'm sure I've skied this question before, but I could still use a second opinion here.

The main reason im writing this in journal form is A) because I get to rant a bit ;P and B) because my polls never get more than like 3 votes, which doesn't really help my case any here! I'll be be honest, I dont know the first thing about either podcasting, or Livestreaming. But here's the thing... Recantly I've started a creative writing class, and during one of our breaks one of the gentleman that was attending the class started talking about publishing. Now this is a big thing with me because as  ots of you should know, I've been trying for a very long time to get the first of the Four Brothers stories published and on its way in the world, but obviously I've hit quite a few snags along the way seeing as that has yet to happen.

To make a long story short, during the discussion, the gentleman mentioned that the key to getting a publishing company was that you had to convince the company that you 'had a following'. My first thought was the obvious, "well how can I have a following already if this is the first time ive ever tried to get something published?" As it turns out, even the best selling authors have to promote the hell out of their work to get the thumbs up from the publishers to keep moving forward.

Thats kinda the reason i even got started on this site in the first place. I feel as though it's been a pretty unsuccessful start to gaining support for my work (between this and my pitiful tumblr experiment) though. I'll be honest, I really don't know why some of you guys even watch me anymore. Between my almost nonexistent fave numbers and lack of feedback except for a hadful of my actual friends here, it's been pretty discouraging for me. A lot of times i feel like I should just start my watch list all over again (if possible) and keep the few people I know actually acknowledge all my hard work ive been doing on here. Seriously, I cant even tell if half the people on my watch list are even active half the time! Supposedly I've got almost 150 watchers, of which I'm pretty sure only about 30 are even on more than 2 or 3 times a year .which I find kinda sad (no office though)


Anyways, here's my question.....

do you guys think that I should start doing podcasts and/or Livestreaming some of my work to get more of a following for my stories? The main reason i feel like i haven't been geting the numbers I was hopping for/feel like I need is because I feel like people dont "get" my story.

Sure, maybe thats partly my fault for not really up and telling everybody what my stories are about in the first place and just being as vague as I possibly can to try and draw people in to find out more. But thats also the problem. I don't want to just present my whole story and hope people take a liking to it because then once the real thing comes out, why would they want to get it of they can just come here to find out what they want to? There's also my possibly irrational fear of the "writers worst nightmare" (which is basically having someone steal my work and saying it was theirs all along) but it has happend to people on the internet before, and I just don't want that to happen to me too. Especially since the more popular you seem to get, the more people seem to want to steal your things. Seriously, whats up with that? 

Thats why I wanted to try this whole podcast/Livestreaming thing out. If I started answering some of the main questions I've been getting (mostly from my IRL followers, i.e. my family and friends) would that help, or hurt my story any? Because if I don't start to get this thing rolling, then I fell like I'll never be able to get it past my on paper version of it. 

So what do you guys thing?
