It’s been a strange year, just like the one before. Strange in a way that it became ‘normal’ involuntarily. But like all bad things, there were also good things. One of them for me was plenty of time to work on Life to Legend and my artistic skills. Just like that, I’m a year into the project, and what a year it was! In the first 3 months of this year and the last 2 weeks, the Netherlands was in (full) lockdown. A serious pain in more than one way for many people, me included. But the good thing about it was that I could spend time working on projects and collaborating with people I otherwise wouldn’t have been able to.
Thought about and discussed a lot, discussed about in a constructive way: Maybe not so much, and even less so by an artist that actually draws NSFW. It’s a sensitive subject, not only because of the subject, but for many other reasons as well. Many artists draw NSFW, most likely more than you think. But what can you expect? What do you have to keep in mind when you’re considering to get into NSFW art? And is this really what you want?
Catering to an audience is a challenge on its own. Being a pro artist is, like any other profession, a form of business. Some people may not want to make money from their art and see it as a hobby instead, but this article it’s all about the artist that wants to be a part- or full-time artist. And an artist that wants to cater to multiple target audiences. Something I very much recommend as one type of specialization may dry up at any time. Others though may flourish. Having more than one outlet for your art is very beneficial.
Having more than one audience is totally fine. Honestly: Catering to more than one audience means that you’re having a good business practice!
Especially when it comes to the artistic world, its very beneficial if you have more than one project going on. It will help you continue your work even if there’s a crisis or recession going on. If one kind of project doesn’t work: The other might do very good, or at least sustain you.
