    sunforgedposted 8 years ago

    If you do I want to know about it? Ill hook you up with a backlink and a short summary on one of my smaller sites.

    Go ahead just give me the link here!

    This is for a fun site for me, a blogger blog I made before realizing that art is not a profitable niche! So I get to it when I get to it.

    But Ill gladly promote your link (or your art, if your artist yourself!) If you like you can even write up a 100 word summary yourself, which will make me be able to make it live, way quicker!

    What I will link:

    Anything about Your own art
    anything about the business of art (selling at shows)
    Tricks of the trade (how to's)
    Bios/articles about current artist
    Art theory/inspiration

    What i wont link to:

    Old master bios
    Art history
    blatant product reviews

      thanks for your art love. I don't have any of my art posted here. However, I am in Gems and Jewelry and some hubs about artistic Jewelry and photo gallery of those are published.

      If you want to link them, you can.

      Hi Sunforged,

      Thanks for your great idea.  I'm new here, so I'd welcome all the help that I can get.  I do pencil portraits and clay figurines.  for fun actually, but I'd appreciate to having some more fans.  Thanks again. My Links:

      made a small change...i will link to blatant product reviews - if they are a product that a professional artist would have interest in

      -just a quick  breakdown on the how-to idea - since the target audience is, artists who are trying to make a living off their art, and learning offline and online tricks to promote -How-to's should be at an advanced level, Im going to try to include all of the links provided over time - if it doesnt get linked to it is because I feel it is an article that is speaking to a less advanced crowd.

      Thank you very much for taking the time to share your links with  me

    Hello Sunforged!

    I have a few hubpage drawing tutorials like in my how to draw demons, witches,trolls and whatever else, there's a few listed on my hubpage profile.

    Thanks if you can list one!

    1. sunforged profile image76
      sunforgedposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Im already linked to your article on tattoo art business! Rather recent addition though not quite sure if traffic is going your way yet.

      I read your how-to hubs and enjoy them, I havent linked to them because, on how-tos, I focus more on how-to's in materials - so how to prime a canvas, how to make a .gif using photoshop etc.

      But Im sure I can find a couple more from your treasure trove that fits the sites fields

      What I will do though for sure, is put a blogroll link that leads to all your hubs with the "art" tag! Your welcome to suggest an anchor text if you like.

      In other news, after almost a year of not caring so much about the site because Google hated me for some unknown reason (Ive been position #1 in yahoo for months and months!)

      So I just checked it after starting thsi thread and Im finally first page in GOOGLE! for not only the original site but a total of 4 pages that lead to the site.

      So i have an impetus to promote it more and maybe even beautify it a bit - organize it a bit better etc.

      I really am quite ecstatic about this

      woo-hoo, I re

        waynetposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        That's great when that happens...good old Google.

        If possible the anchor text "draw fantasy" might work well for the blogroll...so cheers, and thanks for linking to that tattoo art hubpage as I'll have another one that will show how to draw tattoos and WHERE to sell them online, sort of like an indepth tutorial in the works coming soon!

          I checked  analytics, I posted that link 10 days ago - and 25 visitors exited to your hub, nothing amazing but as far as i know I hit first page today for the keywords ive been targetting - so that should pick up over time

          Your blogroll link is live and changed to "Draw fantasy"

    I have lots of art instruction hubs. Here's a link to my most popular one:

    http://hubpages.com/hub/Prismacolor-Rea … l-Painting

    There are many, many others ranging from beginner to intermediate in a variety of mediums. I've also reviewed a couple of art instruction books and sometimes give tips within the review, otherwise I wouldn't mention those. My two favorite topics for Hubs are how to draw/paint and how to write novels, so this thread was made for me. lol

    Thanks for all the replies, many of the posters have been Pm'ed, a couple of links have been placed in blogroll, a new blogroll for etsy shops has been created.

    There are many who posted that i have not reacted to yet, I am a bit behind scrambling with trends for the holiday season, i will be jumping back into this project in january (its a fun project, not a profit project) and will include very relevant link I can!

    Feel free to check out "join the artist interview series" to get some ideas on the suggested format..of course creativity is encouraged

    @glass etching, I will include anything relevant to the process of art, arts marketing and personal experience in the arts, if any content is relevant I will publish and gladly link back to any hubs, art, stores etc. that you wish

    Thanks for the big response everyone!

      sunforgedposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      The main purpose of the site is to help people who ask

      "how do i make money from my art?"

      I dont discern what "art" is

      its not a profit site, I try wink , but its not a niche with much potential,

      so anyone who speaks about how they want to profit from the "art" they practice is open to a push from me.

      Its also the main publishing source for my "Artist Interview series" ( <----- search me) which showcases the efforts and progress of artist who answer the basic interview

      I have a couple of great ones all set to publish wink ..was just waiting on good shots of their art

    Hi there

    Glad to hear of your orientation in integrating art-related hubs. This is mine http://hubpages.com/hub/Artist-Inspirations

    I am focussing on posting only art-related hubs and that's why my hub-posts here may sometimes be less frequent, because it is made very carefully to cater not only artists but also to non-artists. I am relatively new to hubpages, hence I have only one post here. I am just taking time in the midst of my work-schedule to know hubpages well before I frequently post eventually.

    Do also check out my profile where I have details of my various involvement as an artist professional and volunteer. http://hubpages.com/profile/rembrandz

    I simply post pics of my paintings on my hubs - I would like to have like an art gallery Hub but would that be allowed - simply a description of each painting and a pic of the painting - so say 10 paintings and descriptions to make up an entire hub - would it work - would it get a low score due to lack of content?
