Oh, hey there new followers, there’s suddenly quite a bit of you from the past few days. Thanks for checking out my stuff, and feel free to send me a message if you have questions or just want to say hi!
Yeah, so I did a Nimona fanart sketch thing again. It’s fun designing characters that in their origin, are very simply drawn and so removed from my own visual taste. This time? The Director.
I was catching up on Nimona and it struck me that the director is a bit flat as far as characters go, and I’m really interested in seeing if she gets some back story at all. I like to think she was once one of the orphan knights, and she hated it. She was called weak and fragile, but all she really wanted was to be a fine lady, to use her mind and wits for power. And so, unlike Ballister who has tried to take revenge from the outside through chaos, she made the system work for her. And now she can wear the fancy lady clothes she always wanted and boss around all the brawny folks.
Regardless of all this, I do think Noelle and I should start a “Drawings of girls with pink hair in fancy armor” club, because:
More people draw pink-haired girls in fancy armor and let me know about it, please.
My favorite part about this is the collar. Sam wins.
Actually, funny story. This costume is vaguely based off a recent dream I had where Harry was some sort of medieval sci-fi space night, and I was a lady wearing this super awesome gown and coif(?) thing. I don’t know the technical term for the medieval head scarf thing. I wish I had more time in my life, because, oh the costuming I would do….
Well for one thing, you need to be voted in to use INPRNT. I didn’t think that was a big deal, but one of my friends applied and didn’t get voted in which I thought was pretty surprising. The upside is that the quality of work on the site is pretty high.
I think INPRINT is also the only site that allows you to keep 50% of the sale, which is really nice, as someone who is trying to make a living on art. Society6 has cool options like throw pillows, mugs, and totes or whatever, but you get a sad portion of the sale and it just didn’t seem worth it to me. I think I still offer some of my old stuff on Society6, but I really wasn’t a huge fan of it.
Honestly I used to just go to a local print shop and do the trimming/shipping/everything myself and sell it through Etsy instead of really using Society6. BUT, I moved away and the quality from the print shop wasn’t as nice as I would have liked, and they have really odd shipping fees, so I decided I needed to try something new.
I have ordered samples from INPRNT, and I realllly love them. They’re giant, gorgeous, the color is amazing, and I feel really good about the product.
As far as customer service? I haven’t had to deal with that, yet. Try reading some reviews.
To sum it all up: Society6 wasn’t for me, a lot of artists like it, though. I like INPRNT because the commission is a LOT more reasonable, it’s pretty strictly prints (I’m not interested in my art being on random things), and there are a lot of quality artists on there.
Hope this helps! I suggest asking around, everyone has different opinions and it really matters what you’re interested in making available.
