Working on creating a name for myself in digital media/animation but I don't know where to start. Should I create a blog? Website or some sort? Is Wix a good place for that?
>>508149do some digital media/animation first, that might help you get started
No comment on the digital animation, but I got one on the website hosting choice.Don't use a free one. Lots of organisations will completely block these domains out of their networks because sites like Wix get used in phishing attacks.
>>508171Shoot I was gonna try Wix too because the layout is simple. Would I have to code my own site if I don't use something like wix?
>>508155I have work to show off but I'm just not sure where to present it.
You could start streaming work in progress on Twitch.
>>508204Use tumblr or another blog service
>>508149linkdn or pay for someone to make you one.
>>508149Create a youtube channel. Fill it with potato knishes.
>>508149Do all of that shit. Set up your own website eventually (do people still use WYSIWYG editors for these?)Stream on Creative on twitch (I'm not sure if your shit actually has to be vidya, I think it just can't be porn); even though picarto is much better, it's niche as shitMake good work and get it out there. People know names of artists because their shit is good, also sign your shit
>>508149Enter into the 3D porn industry, but be warned: as a beginner, before anyone trusts you to do the straight porn, you need to do lots of gay porn.
>>508204creating a wordpress site is not hard, and can be made to easily show your work.>>511256second this, youtube or vimeo portfolios are mostly the norm for any animation work
>>508206Vimeo, youtube, and artstation
I am (eventually) gonna try and do the same thing too. I always recommend getting almost everytype of social media there is. But the basic ones that are for sure needed are DeviantArt, YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter. Be active on your social media and one of the more important things is have a personality. If you want to make a name for yourself, show your face sometimes and have a fun personality that people want to watch and stay updated with. Having this kinda personality makes people who aren't really into 3D art interested in you because you're fun. Your craft doesn't have to be absolutely incredible ( at least good) so long as you have an awesome personality, even if it's not your true personality.
>>511312I will second the 3d porn. You can make a name for yourself and get attention on the sfm threads on /b/.
>>511688If you decide to use wordpress BY ALL THE LIGHTS IN THE SKY KEEP THAT SHIT UPDATEDI work at an internet company and customers SO OFTEN get their shit shrekt because they didn't keep their wordpress installation up to date or they were using plugins or themes that were out of date or no longer in active development. ALWAYS keep ANYTHING that uses php up to date, or you'll get your shit hacked and your website will be sending out chinese spam in 30 seconds.
Porn.No, seriously, porn.
Artstation is good as other artists and employers get too see your assets publicly. However building up multiple websites/accounts for your art is also a good thing too. I would suggest Artstation though, very nice.
