Fame and Fanart
So here’s my fear, and you all feel free to prove me wrong. I recently hit 550 followers, and though this is not a huge number, it’s also enough to make me feel like I should, to some extent, try to keep those people around. Now I think 90% of those people are only following me in anticipation of more fanart for this or that fandom which I once did a drawing about. I know this is at least partially true because I get way more notes on fanart, consistently, than I do on my original work. The problem is that when I try to decide what to draw on any given day it’s now a decision between drawing fanart and getting more notes and followers, or drawing original content that’s more fun but receiving almost no responses.
