IcreateWorlds Art – My NEW ETSY STORE!

IcreateWorlds Art – My NEW ETSY STORE!

Are you an artist ? Have you ever thought of making some money with your drawings ? Have you tried selling your images online ?
If the answer is no, maybe you should look into what Etsy has to offer.
After years of looking at the site, I finally decided to open my own ETSY SHOP. I have so many illustrations scattered around that I thought now is the time to put them to use and so after some research I noticed that one of the most popular products there are, downloadable digital prints; which is something I never expected and which is something that is perfect for my type of images and artwork.

Another thing I noticed is that children room wall decoration or kids room poster artwork is something that seems to be in demand over there so to start with, I decided to give it a go at that.

From what I read and from the videos I´ve been watching online it seems that it can take a while for a brand new shop to be noticed and even make a first sale but I´m now following the drip-by-drip approach many established Etsy sellers recommend and I´m at the initial stage of just filling my shop with products to gather some traction within the internal Etsy search engine and maybe Google.

What you see above is actually my best selling image at Displate and so I´m curious to see if it catches on with the ETSY audience also.

One of the great thing with Etsy for my type of art and product is that we can actually create downloadable art prints and an artist like me does not have to sell an actual physical product. I don´t need to manufacture or print my own images. Instead we just sell the high resolution images for people to print as they wish.
In my case, plenty of my children book type illustrations are perfect to decorate children rooms for example and so my downloadable art prints end up being a really cool way of creating home decor products without much difficulty.

If you have some skills with image editing software like Photoshop , Krita or whatever maybe you should also start to think about what you can do with that.
I used to be a real disbeliever on these type of sites that sell our stuff because they take high commission fees and we are left with not much at the end for each sell. But… in reality, if you think about it… we the artists already have the images done, we don´t need to do any extra work and the only trouble we have to go to is upload the material into the sites. You don´t need to stick with only one of these Etsy type sites and you can monetize your digital paintings anywhere on the web.

Drip by drip sales eventually will start to happen. I used to not believe in that at all, but last year I uploaded a couple of my paintings and after a few months of nothing happening my metallic poster prints at Displate started to sell and I haven´t spent a dime in online publicity. Sales just happened.
Although the artists don´t make much money out of each sale, nevertheless it´s money that comes in based on paintings and material we already have around.
The fact that my Displate store seems to be getting some attention in the last couple of months made me want to try and get into ETSY now too.

2a

So, if you´re an illustrator and you don´t have a clue about this online selling stuff, if you have some pics lying around wasted, I totally suggest you try places like Displate and Etsy for sure.

My ETSY SHOP is brand new so I have zero sales and almost no visitors yet but I´ll keep everyone posted on how I will be doing in the future if something happens with it and I´ll try to help everyone who´s in the same level as we go along.

DISPLATE FANTASY POSTERS

ETSY-Icreateworldsbanner

amazon author banner - luis peres

 

 

Space Opera Toon Style Poster

This one came out of the blue. I had this project to do with some subjective guidelines as the image had to have the company logo and be about space; and so things just started to happen. After a character came another and I decided to create some sort of animation movie poster for a movie that does not exist.

Huion-Universe_2060x

Much of this started to pick up references from known stuff from modern popular culture, such as Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek, Star Wars and all that, but actually the real base foundation for this idea came from the old Buster Crabe , Flash Gordon serials from the 1930s and also from the old E.E.Doc Smith 1940s Space Opera pulp fiction novels, like “Space Hunters” or “Lord Tedric” which defined and invented back then what nowadays we see in modern encarnations of the genre like Star Wars for example.

Much of my scifi work is heavily inspired by the old scifi pulp novel classics from the early XXth century, like John Carter, or from the early scifi movies like Things to Come, Forbidden Planet and such.

This one just happens to be in a toon style similar to the one I also used several years ago on my fantasy/scifi comics, “Once Upon a Time on Mars“.

Goodbye Photoshop, Hello Clip Studio Paint : “West of Oz – Tree of Knowledge” – Fourth Clip Studio painting.

And yet another Clip Studio Paint illustration. Still ajusting to this brand new software after years working with Photoshop. So here´s one pic more inspired by the Oz ( and The Neverending Story ) universe(s). It seems at this pace I will be building enough material to create a themed illustration book of my own in no time too.
So here it goes: “WEST OF OZ – TREE OF KNOWLEDGE”.

cpt04_FINAL-1250X.jpg

After more than 15 years using Photoshop for most of my original illustration/concept-art work stuff, I´m replacing it with Clip Studio Paint ( also known as Manga Studio in Japan ).
It can do most of the things I did with Photoshop when it comes to creating a painting, the layers work the same way, etc, but it comes with some really cool pre-made brushes that I love to use. Also it has some great comic creation features which are outstanding.

clip

Don´t let the name of the software fool you, it is not a clipart creation tool but a fully developed software for painting and illustration. Thing of a cross between the classic Painter with plenty of the Photoshop advantages mixed in and you get Clip Studio Paint.
It is known as Manga Studio in Japan but the name is also not very good there too because people may think this is just something to create Manga, which again, it is not.
I have no idea why somebody didn´t give this amazing full illustration creative painting tool a really good name that reflects the true nature of what it can do but for now we´re stuck with “Clip Studio Paint” which must be the most awful and misleading name someone ever gave to an amazing painting sofware.

MY ORIGINAL INSPIRATION SOURCE / A MINHA FONTE DE INSPIRAÇÃO ORIGINAL

O trabalho que inspirou a minha história de aventuras Marcianas está no conteúdo deste meu outro site.
Publicado originalmente no Forúm DVD Mania (em 2004) , expandido e actualizado dez anos mais tarde ( e a precisar já de nova actualização ) este foi o material que acompanhou a minha imaginação/investigação e que pode ( e deve) ser lido como complemento da Banda Desenhada pois contextualiza muito do humor contido na história. O objectivo do site ( e do post no Forúm DVD Mania ) foi mesmo o de apresentar em Português com uma organização coerente muito sobre este tópico que só existe na sua maioria em inglês e também tentar separar as idiotices imbecis que já se escreveram sobre o tema ao logo dos anos daquilo que realmente tem mesmo interesse enigmático e científico sobre o mesmo e que não podia estar mais na ordem do dia apesar de não se notar absolutamente nada sobre isso em Portugal.
Portanto se quiserem perceber o verdadeiro contexto da minha banda-desenhada de Fantasia os links a consultar estão nas imagens abaixo. 😉
