WIPs on tumblr!

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 21, 2012, 11:25 AM


Been thinking for months about uploading WIPs, pros and cons of it and where to upload them. I've been asked and I know many people like to see WIPs, so maybe it could give me that little push to not to procrastinate so much and finish my drawings faster, but that's pretty much it. Don't want my gallery/scraps flooded with them, I like to keep the element of surprise for my watchers, what if something goes wrong? + I'm not that comfortable showing something in progress.

In the end, I went for tumblr, to see what's all this fuss about it and as a place to upload WIPs. Sometimes. Without particular consistency or order. Whenever I manage to beat my hate for scanning the same piece more than once. Tumblrers can follow me and the rest will be given links to WIPs in the description after I upload the finished drawing on dA, or can bookmark my tumblr.

Uh, I made a tumblr acc a few weeks ago too, BUT I totally didn't understood it. As I couldn't find out how I change my avatar/icon I gave it up after 2 hours. But maybe I should give it another try, because I want to know what's so special on it. :)

Hehe maybe you should. Nothing really special, but you can get your daily dose of laugh and giggling there with all this silly and hilarious gifs, pictures with funny text on them, art, all kinds of amusing, funny, interesting stuff related to all kinds of things, especially to various TV shows, actors and things people obsess about :D Fan bases are very strong there, you just gotta find people who like what you like. I would have definitely erased my tumblr if it wasn't for this.

Okay, that's a good option enough. But if you're so worried about the "surprise" thing, you can always update wips after updating the completed drawing ^^'. Some guys do that, actually.

Well, what's the difference, seeing them on dA later or being linked to them? I see none important. Also, god forbid my WIPs get more feedback than the finished piece, saw cases like that with other people's art and definitely wouldn't like that. :D

Lol, sometimes my WIPS get almost as many faves as my drawings .. it's not great that :tears:

I don't have tumblr though and I want to see the WIPs, I'm sad :( Is it a pain in the ass to set up?

You read my previous comment I assume? Yeah, no way I'm uploading them to dA. Nope, you can have an account in a minute. Hm, can you do a little test for me? Click the link and see if you can see my whole blog or it shows you tumblr page where they ask you about making an account. I know non members can see a certain post if they've been linked to it, but I'm not sure if they can see all, don't remember :D

I did :nod: Sure thing, I clicked on the tumblr link and it goes straight to your page with Jensen :la: No prompt for an account, so that's good :) I think I can look around, but you only have one post at the moment, it that right? If not, the archive isn't there for non members. I can click to your own site no problem though.

I'll make one tomorrow so I can do my nosey :giggle:

Oh, great, then others can simply bookmark it :) Thanks! Yeah, I had tons of works but erased all because they were just laying there pretty much invisible and I have very little followers which was all pretty disappointing after so many weeks of uploading my best works and being active, so I decided I won't try to "succeed" there, be known, popular, whatever and use the account only as WIP dump while enjoying the stuff people I follow upload for my daily dose of laugh and amusement. :D

Great, will follow you :)

Hhaha, well, I truly disliked the guy for months! Thought BBC Sherlock was just a regular TV show, didn't like the 21st century part and you know sometimes it only takes a look at someone to base your "don't like them" opinion on and wondered how the hell they picked this guy to play SH :lol:(I mean, I even couldn't decide which sounded worse, his first name or last name :rofl: ). BUT as SH fan and after quite a few "you must watch it!" suggestions I decided to give it a try and now we have a new huge BBC Sherlock fan who thinks the 21st century works out great, the show is fantastic and Benedict Cumberbatch is absolutely fantastic as Sherlock :heart: and everything I didn't like about him, I pretty much adore now. :lol: Ha, bet you didn't expect a reply of this length! :D
