Attention, don't give away your work!If possible please this news article so that more people can see it and be wary, thank you!Attention, don't give away your work! by Talty
This week I received messages from two different people (through Etsy and Storenvy) offering to make a review of my work. They splattered huge statics, like having millions of instagram followers, popularity, or having done it before and making people famous. Of course, their generosity was conditioned by me agreeing to send them some of my work for free. While I don't object the concept of reviewing someone's work, I worry that this has become a popular way of scamming artisan crafters to give away their work for free with promises of exposure and increasing their sales. I wanted to write this journal to tell everyone to be careful, specially if you're just starting your business and struggling to get noticed, it may sound tempting but you should never give away your hard work!
One of them was even more blunt and said that he could write a positive review of my work just by
|For both your own and these artist's sake, have a look at some of these artworks <3 Be sure to look in my collections, too, I only have a few favs in the featured category.|
Why, hello there! I'm Sasiadragon, but you can call me Starfog, too. Or Flame, my older friends do that. I don't mind :3 I'm a young girl, a bit more than fifteen, but I are often mistaken for being older, and I don't mind talking with people either younger or older than me. I was born into a family of artists, and I've been drawing and painting for longer than I remeber. A few years ago, I took a class in how to draw what you see, and since that, my art have really developed. It is first recently that I've become really satisfied with what I do, though, yet I have lots to learn and appreciate each and every critique you could have for me!
Before I became more confident with my art, I mostly used my time on commenting on other people's works. I try my best to leave comments that makes a difference, and I do think I manage to now and then.
I still use time on commenting, though a little less than before. Now I concentrate more on my own works, but I still love to talk, so feel free to leave a message on my profile.
I do not thank for watches, faves or llamas, but I want you to know that every single of them means something to me, and everytime you add my works to your favourites, I become more motivated to draw, as I see that somebody likes what I do, everytime someone adds me to their watch, I become even more motivated to make more and better works. So thanks!
I do however answer all the comments I get, and I really like chatting ^^
No need to thank for faves and watches, but you're welcome to if you want ^^ I'm just thanking for the art you're showing to me and the world.
