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.

The Searchers – Scifi Cover Art Illustration

This is my first 2019 pic and it was just done for fun and for portfolio. Inspired by the classic John Wayne western “The Searchers” this is my scifi take on it and the idea was to also depict my style of cover art for science fiction novels.

“ATTACK ALL HUMANS” – Board game Illustration 3 – Tonal variations.

Another one of the digital paintings I did many months ago for the “ATTACK ALL HUMANS” board game, now in its test phase. These are a few of the tonal variations I played with to experiment with colors back then.

This is heavily inspired in the old 50s flying saucers invasion movies, but now we are the aliens invading the earth which is a lot more fun.
More info on the project status here in its FB group:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/1771014106287415/about/

More on this project soon. 😉

“ELDORADO SPACEPORT” – Blender ANIMATICS – Test 3

“ELDORADO SPACEPORT” – Blender ANIMATICS

It was not in my plans to create an animation out of the low poly basic models I did in Blender sometime ago but things just kept building up and I ended up with a bunch of random animated “takes” somehow.
Then I thought that maybe they could be edited to form some sort of animatic although I never planned any logic into the thing when I first build this stuff.

Also it was never my intent to create a complete fully rendered animation or anything as I don´t have the hardware for more complicated adventures or time for 3D, unfortunately.

I built this “space city” model because I wanted to create some illustrations based on a pre-existing 3D Blender model to paint on top, but then I thought that as long as I had built it, I should try to animate it a bit…
A few weeks later I ended up with more than 40 different “animated takes”.

So what you see is a really rough space port thing. I had a lot of fun edditing all those bits togheter and adding the sound effects into it, using the amazing free video editing software HitFilm 4 Express which you can get at : https://hitfilm.com/express
If you found  that some bits had some fuzzy “narrative” logic that´s because I´ve worked with random takes which had no initial planning of being used to build a logical storyline animation. 😉

“SAVFK MUSIC”

The royalty free sound effects were taken from all over the internet here and there, but the awsome music soundtrack came from the Youtube Video ChannelSAVFK MUSIC at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXlppUGWeGtHBp_1xKsawmQ/featured

You can listen to the original track from Savfk before the effects, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8A4Jak73Lao

And so I guess this is it. Just another animatic created for fun.

“CRUSADER” : MATTE PAINTING Test & Color / Tonal varations

“CRUSADER” : MATTE PAINTING Test & Color / Tonal varations

Although most of my work is done purely in “traditional” illustration despite me using digital painting techniques to draw and render my fantasy/science-fiction/Children´s-Book artwork, one area that fascinates me is that of matte-paiting when it conserns the extension of landscapes that can also be generated with photo collage , sometimes photo-bashing at their base.

matte 01-cinematic-lucid

So this an experiment of mine in creating fantasy landscape using all sorts of image manipulation with a lot of “traditional painting” on top of everything to make all the elements come togheter in one single piece. Usually you see these types of images done for movies, either for concept art or for final renders you get to see on the screen.
Here´s some tonal and color variations that can be achieved digitaly after the original digital painting/illustration is rendered initialy.

matte 01-adjust
matte 01-bw1
matte 01-cinematic-distant
matte 01-bw3
matte 01-classic-dawn-light
matte 01-classic-mini-oven
matte 01-classic-nostalgic
matte 01-classic-pitsburgh
matte 01-classic-whisper
matte 01-classix-mini-oven2
matte 01-crusader-food
matte 01-crusader-theater
matte 01-disposable-olden
matte 01-lightleaken-boken
matte 01-lomo-blue-sepia
matte 01-lomo-lomo
matte 01-lomo-nashville
matte 01-lomo-sepia-glow
matte 01-lomo-sutro fx
matte 01-mono-noir
matte 01-retro-pale-ocre
matte 01-retro-purple
matte 01-retro-warm
matte 01-serenity-bloom
matte 01-serenity-degraded
matte 01-vintage-sepia1

I plan to create more images with this technique later when I get to find the time to do it in between my regular illustration commissions.

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. 😉
