DeviantART Update

Yesterday I set up an account on DeviantART.  I had been looking into selling my art last summer but I didn’t get very far with it.  When I got up yesterday morning I had no idea that I would have art on sale by the end of the day.  It was a spur-of-the-moment thing so I was up late last night trying to deal with the chaos I had unwittingly released.  I’m still a bit shell-shocked! 😮

I’ve only uploaded eleven pieces to my DeviantART Gallery so far but I plan to put more up soon.  I’m also going to try to add a button to this blog to take you to my DeviantART homepage [update: see right].  If you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ll probably recognise most of the eleven pieces.  The only design that is available for sale so far is the dharma wheel that I mentioned last year.  You can see one version of it in the background to my blog.  A dharma wheel or dharmacakra is a visual representation of the Buddha’s teachings.  For example, the eight spokes represent the Noble Eightfold Path.

The main problem I have at the moment is getting my original pieces of art into digital format.  I haven’t made much progress with Manga Studio, my photography skills are a bit dodgy and my scanner is small and very basic.  I can’t sell anything that is blurry or has low resolution.  I’m working on it. 😉

      • Sorry for bothering again, but I have just found a good site for ‘artists’.
        https://note.mu/
        Perhaps you can sell easily your works, and I think many Japanese people will get the chance to see your works.
        However, I do not know it provides English version, sorry, if it doesn’t, please just ignore this.
