Also, I once PAID some ... I don't know what he was supposed to be... art consulant like 80 bucks specifically to help me with what should be on my website....
All he said was "organize it better" meaning just don't slap up all your pieces... for a wildlife person have, North American art, then South American Art, African... etc... or at least by 'Big Cats' "Wild Birds' something...
He really wasn't much more helpful than that, and I felt like I was kinda' ripped off for the 80 bucks I shelled out... but in his defense.. I really didn't have a website up for him to critique much.. so I figured I'd throw that out there for other newbees although I can tell everyone who habitually haunts this business center forum already well knows that.
I also have a terrible time trying to think about what to say about myself. I so easily am able to cast others in great light and give the benefits of what they are offering, but for myself, nothing. That art consultant asked me "what's with the eyes?" I still don't know the answer to that. Doesn't everyone think eyes are cool? I have no idea what I'd say if I ever got an art site up but at least I could have some organization of my pieces I guess. [Actually eyes are fun to do in the medium of colored pencil, that's pretty much it. But that's not very exciting or gripping or makes anything of mine saleable.]
I also don't like going to art websites and reading a lot of crap that people put up trying to look intellectual. I like reading about where they get their reference photos from... what they use... the building pieces of art... anything else on websites that are not about that, my eyes glaze over, fast.
One British artist, he talked a lot about getting reference photos.. he went on safaris and drew sketches, took photos.. all of that was fabulously interesting to me. I don't have any of that to say. What I find interesting on other people's websites, I don't seem to have Lol.
If I ever get a website up.. I plant [plan, ha ha ] to go around and look at the websites of other wildlife artists and then HOPEFULLY I can get a few words together.
