Sony-Shock's News

Posted by Sony-Shock - 2 weeks ago


So, I have this idea for a custom printing website~ Artist custom artbooks to order!


Artists can submit their art, then customers could select any artwork from the one uploaded to the site and build custom artbooks, which would be printed to order. Every time an art piece is selected for an order, the original artist gets a little percentage of the sales.


I do not have management skills or resources for printing, but I think it's a great, interesting idea which I'd love to see realized. I know I'd be a customer myself! Or, you know, if someone knows how it could become a reality...


Some ideas:


For artists

  • Artists profiles include an username, art style (optional) describing their art type (anime, furry, cartoony, abstract...), bio and social media links.
  • Artist accounts would include galleries of their artwork, with the choice of dividing it into subgalleries for different subjects if they so desired.
  • When an artist uploads artwork, their pieces would be checked for resolution, with the art not being uploaded unless a 300ppp piece is submitted. This wouldn't be displayed in the page itself though, but used by the website for printing, in order to protect the piece from stealth!
  • Art can be named, tagged and can have a preferred disposition for the artwork: Horizontal or vertical.
  • If the artist wants it, they can limit the amount of prints of specific artworks, and when the artwork has been printed that many times, buyers wouldn't be able to choose it for printing anymore.
  • The artist does not lose their rights to their art! They are only giving printing rights to the site, and the right to earn money with the production of the artbooks and no other ways for as long as the art remains in the site.
  • To avoid copyright problem, probably it'd be wise to limit works to non-fanart. Wouldn't stop everybody, but a good rule of thumb.


For buyers

  • Artbooks can be made as a guest, but if you make an account, you can use it to save artbook collections, so you can reprint a specific set of artwork. Handy!
  • They can also save favorite artists and artwork!


Printing process

  • Technically each artbook is made based on an automated set of templates, leaving the buyer to just select the art they desire and typical printing choices like paper quality and cover type . Price would be generated based on these.
  • The last page would be automatically generated with credits to the artist/s, collected from the artist' page in-site.
  • For extra revenue, artbooks might feature advertisements in a few pages, similar to comic books. Offering a suscription method could give buyers the choice of eliminating this.
  • Customers can look for work not only through the artist' gallery, but through tags and art style! Using the search engine, they can easily find art with specific tags or in a specific style. If you don't know specific artists who draw anime girls, you could search for pieces tagged 'girls' that belong to an artist who selected 'anime' as their style

Announcement!!

My patreon will be paused through january! I will be dedicating the whole month to Sounds of the Heart, making it impossible for me to fullfill patreon rewards or commissions as usual.

It's likely I will still post progress in my patreon, so for these who remain as patrons, you will still get some activity.

A headsup! Thank you very much for your support and for understanding!

And most likely it is because of my settings which I don't remember changing.


I'm mad, I was missing reading people's comments in this site! Sorry if it seemed like I had gone radio silence~

After giving it some thought, Patreon will continue to be paused for this incoming month~ Thank you very much for the support nonetheless!

I'm pausing Patreon for next month! I have a lot in my queue (although I'm going through it pretty fast), so I'll do the most responsible thing and not make it for a bit.

Maybe you've noticed already, but I've closed my commissions temporarily! It's not meant to last very long, but the queue was getting out of control and I was receiving more than I can produce!

It's not too troublesome tho, and they'll be back open soon! https://abs-0.twimg.com/emoji/v2/svg/1f495.svg

In addition to the changes in kofimission prices, I have also remade my Patreon tiers to make the much more simple and manageable.
