Yes or No for DO?
Post By spazattack. 28/12/10, 04:07 am

I was thinking of grabbing a table at DO next year and selling some stuff~ But Im very nervous about it! (because I saw a lot of reali good artists there~)
So Im to show some art work and get some feedback on it~ where I need to improve and other stuff? ^___^;
Also whether you think I should do DO next year or wait another year? ? ? :3
These are all digital art btw, scanner is too old so I couldnt upload my sketches OTL

WARNING: Pics are quite big~

That's what I thought... and look at my 50% in the red for this year...

IMHO, your stuff needs more work, or find an extremely cheap printing option or share a table with someone.

Iiii really love your art <3 I think you should give it a go. But. If you're wanting it to sell, then I would suggest picking a fandom that suits your art style. Like, to me, your art style would work well for 'cute'-type fandoms. First thing to mind for me is stuff like Vocaloids or Pokemon. It could work for, like, something like Kuroshitsuji or KHR, too, but i don't think they'd sell as well unless they were more like chibi or 'for teh lolz' kinda things. Chibi comics or something.

I don't know. That's just my opinion.

@DeltaBeta: Ok! I will continue to work on my drawing so I can improve more! :3~ And also I was thinking of sharing a table with one or two other people~ ^_^

I can see cutesy kinds of things sell well with yourstyle. You kinda need to find the right pictures that suit it.

I do like the tekken ones though xD They're funny~

@hyolee123: Thats cool. So far right now im thinking if I go through with getting a table at DO I might go on with what Rikki said and try a go at Vocaloids and Pokemon~ :3 I might also do chibi versions of anime characters that a lot of people love?
would that be a good idea? ? ^^;

@dkleenz: lol thank you~ I guess its final that my art style is 'cutesy-style' ne? XDDDD

Thank you again for the feedback guys! <3 <3 <3 :333

kinds of anime characters people love?

Characters like from Lucky Star, Salior moon, Cardcaptors, Pokemon, Digimon. You just gotta research ask around what's popular and stuff :3

Mainstream is always a surefire way to be popular.

Keychains, stickers, that sort of thing always sells well.
If you aren't feeling confident, this was mentioned, but I would definitely consider sharing a table. ;DD

I think you should attend, especially since they're making it a 2 day event now (meaning more tables needing to be filled). Whether you're good enough to showcase your work is up to you really, since there are artists of all skill levels present at the event.
