First Time At Artist Alley! What do you want to see?
« on: February 17, 2012, 11:27:03 AM »

Hello everyone!

I'll be at the Fanime artist alley this year and its my first time selling my art ever.... So I'm pretty stressed  :-[ Does anyone have any advice? Things you pros know about selling art at Fanime?


Also do people have requests for prints? Popular series, styles etc.

Here's my deviantart account http://mysticeden.deviantart.com/

I'll be selling some original comics and some prints. So far the two prints I'll be selling for sure are http://mysticeden.deviantart.com/art/Kirby-and-Angel-Imp-Colored-93549638 and
http://mysticeden.deviantart.com/art/MLP-Dr-Horrible-253465791

I'm also making some more MLP fanart and crossover with Dr. Horrible. I'm also thinking of Sailor Moon or Pokemon. What else would you guys like to see?

your doing great and I didn't the portal rings became a daily deviation?..erh never mind..
let's see, its a really tough call what people like to see...

Strong points:
you did good with the cherry sticker::

maybe make other fruit variations....

and apparently people are starting to like this -_-!
http://mysticeden.deviantart.com/art/Super-Mario-World-183617494

why not combine the two and see what happens...?

also may want to be aware of artists alley's new rule!


like all professionals would say, it is based on what you think will sell and what not..

Start with the basic sets you have,
Pokemon
sailor moon
Disney
Zelda / Any nintendo character
naruto / onepiece

things that sounds interesting to other people are:
hatsune miku (vocaloid)
Hetalia characters(are they even still fresh to others?)
Kuroshitsuji (anything victorian like effect)
Maybe one of the precure series!

Hi, thanks for the reply :)

I'm not sure what you meanabout the portal rings? Maybe you were looking at my favorites? Because I haven't done any portal artwork, or ever gotten a Daily deviation..

Yes, making more pixel items would work. Although I don't know if i have time >_<.

What new rule are you referring to?

Thanks for the suggestions! I'm really liking vocaloid recently so that will be a fun one to add :D

I'm not exactly a fan of the whole Pony thing, but I know a LOT of people are, so stuff like that would sell.

Maybe you could do pony commissions. Sketch people as ponies or something. I haven't seen that before, and it would probably sell really well at anima conventions.

The pixel art is cool too. Combining that with your cute art style would be great.
