  1. It has been awhile since I have posted around the forums! So just to update a little of what I have been doing I shall leave some art of mine that I did. You can leave some constructive criticism if you'd like! I love drawing Horses and ponies. But I have been practicing some human art as well! If you'd like to see more than equines let me know!
  2. I have started a series called Ninii explains! Which is to help you guys with stuff that is mostly art related! So for today it's : "How can I get people to commission me?" ● " How can you get so many commissions? I work my butt off but I can't seem to get any" ● "How can I get people to buy my art?" And more Well let me explain you the reasons why that sometimes happen! • People might not like your art • People sometimes prefer other styles • The prices might be to high for the type of art you make • Your art might not be the best "Well that is harsh!!!" "Your so mean" NO I am not ....Maybe a little :v Jk Jk This is the truth BUT it can be because of other things like • People know that other artists take requests so they will always prefer requests over paying an artist • Many are minors • Many prefer to save up money for other stuff • Your timing might be bad YES timing is important!!! As for me I post in the afternoon when over 1000 people are online so meaningly more people will see your blog. • Many post at the same time • Also depends where and HOW you share it • Some people prefer KNOWN artists as well to prevent scam. Then how do you do it? How did you start getting commissions more often? Well!! LEMME TELL YA Many don't know his but I started drawing in January 2016. I only started to get commissions around the sixth month. But what many of you don't know is that, I draw EVERYDAY and between 6-12 ,yes between SIX and TWELVE HOUR'S per day except weekends. I practiced A LOT to get my art better and once I did I started to get many commissions. But it's not only that, that counts. Let me show you my old art and my recent art! Old: Most recent: • I advertise my art on over 20 art groups on Facebook On MLP/Furry groups Apps And many other places So learn where to share and advertise your art. •Study the market! Study what people are looking for! Cute art? Epic art? Serious art? Creepy art? • HOW is also important. Don't just say "my commissions are open THE END" Make something like "Hello!!! I'm here to share my art and to tell you guys I am open for commissions, if you are interested let me know! I can make your piece of art between these days and I am very responsive" and so on, something that just seems you want to make money and that's it. People like people who are nice,responsive and that seem to do what they love. • If it's because of your art, PRACTICE. Watch video tutorials, look up images and try to use them as reference, learn anatomy and so on. • Make something unique or funny, it attracts people!! Comics and memes is something that attracts a lot! •TIMING once again, for the people who live in Europe the best time to post is between 5pm -8 pm (I'm not sure who lives in other countries) But study what time there is more active members. Keep in mind not everyone likes your art or prefer other styles People prefer requests over commissions "Ah but you have commissions" YES but I am a little known now days (over 5500 people follow my Facebook page) and I am verified in some other communities so it's normal to have more commissions than artists that are not very known. It's sad but it's like that. Sadly that is how it works If people don't commission you There are many reasons! It's not always because of your art But as time passes by people will start to show up if you learn how and when to share you art!! Also do not get upset due to that It's hard....Yes I know, I went threw that my self... "My art sucks so I give up" NO don't give up! If it's somethig you like and love to do continue ! Practice ASK for criticism if you want to get better as well!! It helps a lot trust me My boyfriend criticises my art all the time and thanks to him I got motivated to get better! And because of that I now live with the art I make. It's normal in the beginning to not to have commissions But once people start to see your art and see that you are not a scammer and keep your word,more people will come around. Not everyone has money as well! Unfortunately there are many great artists that are not known and should get the credit they deserve. Many people also prefer digital over traditional So all I can say is Don't give up! Keep trying At first it's hard But one day you'll see it won't be as hard Artists compete with eachother when someone is looking for commissions It's normal Don't get upset if someone does not chose you Don't be mean if someone does not choose you Congratulate the person who gets the commission. So Here are the main reasons people don't commission you sometimes! Hope it helps you guys understand a little better. Don't get mad about it just continue doing what you like to do! So that's all for today! What would you like to see next on Ninii Explains? Also art by me! Don't forget to follow my FB page! https://www.facebook.com/Niniibear/

  7. Thank you!! Thats awesome really! ^^ Thanks! ^^ And yes we do have some great wines,I don't drink but from what I am told all the time x'D It usually gets a little cold in the winter but normally its always warm. Hahaha
  8. Well! I have a few to be honest. But let me tell you my online experience around groups on Facebook Well I understand people like the Furry fandom and like Mlp and all. But most of them are really awkward or just really obssessed with the fandom and get so defensive and ofended about it pretty easy. So I sometimes see a guy streaming in a MLP group,and his room is literally,LITERALLY full of MLP things. I mean I think there is no more room to even walk. He was saying mlp is his life and in the stream he actually said he does not have a girlfriend and that nobody likes him. Well...Here are a few reasons: One: your room is full of kids stuff. Bceause yes,MLP was made for children. Two: You wear MLP stuff all the time Three: You actually bring your MLP plushies to work and school. Four: Your very defensive when someone has an opinion towards MLP. I mean the cringiest thing I can see is people being very obssessed with things and sexualizing childrens stuff ,I know its normal to do so these days but it's still cringey. For me it's also cringey when someone comes into a community and says " I have no friends" or "I have no girlfriend because I love mlp" And I'm here like "MLP is not the reason,maybe it's you who always wears mlp stuff,brings plushies outside,has room fully decorated with childrens stuff and so much more,I am dating and I like MLP but I don't do those things and he knows I am a pegasister and a furry and yet he loves me,so its not usually the fandoms fault " But yeah I'll shut up now x'D
  9. I love seeing people in fursuits,but I can't see my self wearing one. Not because I don't want to ,but because I can't stand the heat after a few hours. I cosplay my self,just wearing a wig and something "cool" warms me up to much. Specially in closed places where conventions happen x_x I just pass out really .
