Thanks for following Amnia Cycle!
Yes, Amnia is a continuous story that I am writing as I’m drawing and coloring. It will ultimately be about 200 pages long.
Whether I find Tumblr to be effective for promoting my work is an interesting question… I guess I’m not sure how to gauge that. What I’ll say is that I like that I can put the work up and just let it take on it’s own life. Slowly, over time, I can see people catching on to it. It feels good, I’m glad when people like it. If that is the effect I’m looking for, then Tumblr is working fine.
…Honestly, I think the only reason I put stuff online is so that I can pretend I’m someone else seeing it. Then I can see if I like it, you know? I’m just trying to make something that I would like. Anytime I do that it feels like success. Anything else, like “likes” and “reblogs”, is icing on the cake.
Thanks for the reply, dustinweaver
Lately I’ve been measuring my success by numbers of “likes”, “RT” and “favorites”, which statistically I measured as pointless. I can get more “likes” on 2 hours Captain America/Wolverine sketches over one day work of my own character.
Tumblr IS easy to use. I’ve been wondering if Tumblr will replace Deviant Art or personal web page.
So thank you for giving your thought :)
Ps. How about inputing page number on description? Just a thought.
I’m so stupid. Great suggestion! I’ll do it. Actually, I’ve done it. Check it out. It’s done.
I agree that the “likes” and “re-whatevers” aren’t any indicator of how good your work is. On the contrary, it might be an indicator that the work is shallow in it’s content and that it exploits cheap appeal. (“Might” I said “might”) At any rate, those numbers don’t really matter.
I’ve never done Twitter, Facebook, or Deviant Art. So, I can’t speak to whether tumblr is better than those places. I’ve also never had a personal web-sight. What I do have, and have had for a very long time, is a blog. I update it regularly, and have a great time with it. It’s social networking on my own terms… Meaning, I don’t have to see or read anyone else’s shit. Meaning, it’s not social. My Tumblr presence is really just an extension of my blog. My blog is my internet home. I’m comfortable there. It’s just me and anyone who wants to stop in for a visit.
