Seriously, bud -- I'm not a sales guy, but you try to sell your services, and the first contact you have with a potential customer is to direct them twice, somewhere else to view your work.

You may be a great artist, with outstanding technique, but posting an example or two (suitably marked, natch) here might generate some curiousity.

"I'm an artist -- go see my site," might not.

Best of luck to ya!

Amen...

He needs to learn how to sell. That ain't easy and in fact I don't believe you can teach someone that.

Well done, bud -- good looking work, indeed . . . . .

I am gobsmacked by folks that can start with a white piece of paper (blank screen) and end up with something recognizable!

Hello William -

Very cool art you have there, I sent you two pictures via e-mail ... take a look and see which one is better suited for you to work with. I will be happy to take you up on your offer! Thanks in advance, look forward to see what pic you choose and the end result.

Don

PS
I would have liked that picture above better if it were Rossi and he was riding the Yamaha!

I know someone said I need to learn how to sell, but the truth is that I have had success with this same method of advertising my illustrations in the past on other forums. Not that I claim to be some artist extraordinaire or master salesman, but I am really surprised no one has jumped on this yet. Everyone must be poor like me lol.

I think Rossi is going back to Yamaha next season. I like him on Ducati though just because it is an Italian rider on an Italian bike.
