I pretty much took the leap to upgrade my art portal as soon as I saw Milkgrrl on Twitter post her commission page using Wix. It was such a beautiful layout, I had to have one for myself as well! However, I opted for the no-ad thing and premium stuff, so it's definitely worth my while. Every platform I participate in with posting my art could be found on this page.
What an age to be alive! I don't know a thing about coding or making a site from scratch, so god bless these sites that make it so easy and flexible along with a lot of templates and customization to offer. It's pretty neat and I encourage people to give it a try (definitely worth the $14 a month if you're serious about your bizz.
I figured why not a blog too, so what the hell. Don't know how often I'd update this, but I feel like if I update it periodically, clients can check in and skim what's going on with me to get a good idea of what outside-of-the-computer looks like for me, and if it would hinder their commission progress.
I've amassed a bit of a backlog from several months ago which sucks, but a lot of that has to do with project work for an independent H game. Thankfully I'm on break with that since I will not be given new work from the client until he gets started on content for the second part of the game. I figured it's a good a time as any to power through backlog and I'm pretty impressed with myself that I managed to knock out a good chunk of them before April is over.
I still have a little bit to go, but if I continue at the same pace, I'll be up to speed by the middle of May. Fingers crossed!
