Getting an online art presence - what sites do professionals use?Watch this thread
I'm not talking deviantArt or anything like that (I've had dA and it was mostly social, not really that professional) but I've seen a lot of freelancers using blogspot. What I want to ask is, what do you think are the best sites for a semi-professional portfolio, and how's the best way to go about presenting yourself? What sites are the most flexible when it comes to visually presenting your art? Most ones I've seen have a very rigid visual layout whereby you can't really change much, or make things look unique. Also, can pseudonyms actually be effective when you're promoting yourself? Any advice/opinions would be rad.
Thanks in advance.
I forgot to mention tumblr (free). It's a blogging platform with a great community. They have tons of great themes.
Other people probably designed the site themselves or had professionals create one for them. I am looking for a new platform myself. I am currently on blogger but it's not what I want. Finding the right theme/design is a lot of work.
I do not recommend using a pseudonym. This makes it possible for someone else to claim the site and work as theirs and will cause possible employers to wonder why you don't represent yourself online properly.
