Tumblr willpermanently ban adult contentfrom its platform on December 17th in a move that will eradicate porn-related communities on the platform and fundamentally alter how the service is used. The ban includes explicit sexual content and nudity with a few exceptions, the company tellsThe Verge.
Me as an artist I post my art on tumblr becuase my more explicit content(nude) content I can’t post on here becuase of the terms and agreements I have with Google. So I can’t post on here and use social media sites to share my content with users. So for models I know and other artist that would post their work up there we all had to take our artwork down to go with the terms of tumblr.
It really hurts us becuase were not using it for any bad purpose just to display our work free of charge to people. But I will have more on other alternatives on what to do if you were affect by this new policy.
So at this point I’m gonna assume most of everyone has watched Avengers Endgame! One of the best movies of the year and that has broke box office records destroying Avatar. With that being said Spoiler Alert because there will be spoilers in this post so please read with caution.
Avengers Endgame, all I can say is that after watching that movie all I can say was wow! One of the best endings to an Movie series! This was one of the movies that made everyone emotional at the end! And one of the the movies that made Marvel at the top of all superhero movies.
This movie was so powerful because all of the movies from the start of Iron Man lead to Avengers Endgame. Then the movie Avengers Infinity War with them losing to Thanos at the end was a good way to get our blood pumping to go see the final movie Endgame. The story was different than most superhero movies because you had over a dozen heroes die and Thanos achieves his goal and quickly goes into retirement after making it known that he did what he said and wiped out half the universe.
Plus in Infinity War and in Endgame it shows that in all other villains even in the DC Universe Thanos was the only being with the will and capability to wipe out half the universe and to kill the ones he loves to to make balance in the Universe. Also, he has some of the best quotes in the movies. But that’s my say in Avengers Endgame, if you agree or have different thoughts on the Avengers series or how the series ended feel free to comment below! Thank you for reading and for those of you that haven’t seen the movie, I’d encourage you to watch it! Its definitely worth the watch!

Happy New Year viewers and subscribers! Thank you for your continued support and help to making BrownsComicArt a success. It is a new year with new goals in mind and this year my aim to go for more on customer service. As in what would you as the customer would want to see. On my social media blogs I have already sent out a post asking what are things that you as artist, comic readers, art collectors, etc. would like to see. I’m still a freelance artist and my aim is to focus more on what my viewers want. So lets make 2019 happen and as I mentioned I’m about to post a very brief YouTube tutorial on how to take advantage the benefits of being a subscriber on BrownsComicArt. Which will allow you to post your own video and artwork on my blog all free of charge. Stay tuned and follow me on twitter and Instagram for future updates!
Hey everyone, its been a while but I am happy to announce that I’m currently going back to coloring my drawings ago. Some that I drew years ago and now I have a drawing tablet again. I’m going to be very honest with you its expensive now a days to get a good drawing tablet. And the minimum your gonna have to pay is at least $50 for a decent drawing tablet that is going to get the job done and is going to last. Not to mention more updated with the technology we have currently. The Program I used to color it is a program called Gimp. Now a lot of you have heard of the program Gimp but some may not have and I will have a post coming up describing what Gimp is but in short Gimp is almost like Photoshop. You have the same tools as you would have in Photoshop CS6 and other coloring programs. Stay tuned for more updates and more of my artwork that I will be inking and coloring using Gimp as well as Adobe Photoshop CS6. Remember to follow me on my other social media tags and on Deviant Art and Art Station for some of my Uncensored Artwork. Thanks and I hope you enjoy!
License Agreement. What is a license to be exact. A license by definition is a permit from an authority to own or use something, do a particular thing, or carry on a trade.(*source Google dictionary) This is very important to learn and know because I’m not just talking about license with like a car or a CDL License I’m talking for about any artist trying to sell art that isn’t their own.
It’s very important because to sell something that has copyright protection most times you need a license to do so. And bear in mind that a license can expire. So you may have to renew your license or it’s a possibility that your license may not be renewed. It’s very similar to a contract but a contract and a license are two different things. For example, if I created t-Shirts with Marvel content like Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron-Man, etc.and I posted it here on my blog or even on a different site without a license to sell them from Marvel than my content can be taken down or the company can issue a warning and put in a complaint and if you were to have made a big profit even sue you for a lot of money.
The reason I say “made a big profit” is because lets say you sold a product and only made about $20 from it. Well, most likely Marvel may send you a warning and threaten to press charges if you don’t stop as long as you stop and don’t do it again you’ll be fine. But for $20 the company is gonna pay a lot more for lawyers and court fees to pursue the claim than what its gonna pay. So it’s not worth the trouble in that case and a big company isn’t more so going to look for small independent business people unless they are making big profits from they’re products. (*It still doesn’t make it right and it is illegal to steal other peoples work). But with a license you can sell Marvel products and usually as a part of the agreement in the license you may have to share a small percentage of the profits you make from selling something with their name on it. Soon I will post an artist tips on Licenses and how to get a license from big companies in the business industry. Thank you for reading and stay tuned!
Hello folks, it has been a while since I’ve been up here I’ve been working on upgrading my computer software and doing a lot of research on finding plugins that will help me set up my membership site. There’s a lot of work to be done and currently I’m working to get it where all members/subscribers can upload post as well as their own artwork on my blog. This process is time consuming but it will pay off to all my subscribers trying to post their art for free and trying to be discovered. To the left is a painting I did years ago and I’m still working to get back to mixing up the artwork that I do. I just recently brought some colored brushes and will be posting a view clips on Instagram of the work I’m doing with them. Because some of my new work coming up is going to be colored with the art brushes.
One of the key points I’m going to make in the short videos is that art brushes and brushes in general have a different effect on the art work that you are doing. Some people use are brushes to create their black&and White portrait and some use is to create their colored portrait. Painting you have a lot more to work with but can sometimes prove difficult or a challenge to me as when the paint dries it changes color usually getting lighter. So when your painting you need to mix a exact color to try to get the result you want and one of the advantages is that you can also go back and change something because you can repaint over it. Soon I will write an artist tip painting how it started and different styles and ways you can paint. Thank you for reading and remember to follow me my social tags located to the right of this page. Thank You!
This is the Anniversary of my website Brownscomicart and I just finished renewing my subscription with WordPress still keeping my Business Account. Which for those that don’t know it is about $299 a year to have a business subscription with WordPress but the good thing with it is you have 24/7 access to support as well as an very unlimited access to premium themes and access to plugins and can upload your own plugin that you may have created or purchased by another developer. So every year as an artist and a Business Man I’m always trying to find ways to do more with my business and to make more in profit instead of just ditching out money to run the business. Currently I’ve probably only made less than $100 in profit just from running the business and that not a bad start, I know and I learn from a lot of bloggers on here that you are always gonna lose money when you start something new and will be spending a lot of money just to get it up and running. So having a good business plan and knowing what your goals will be for the next year is a good way to start. Here are my goals for the 2019 Fiscal Year….
Commissions! I will be doing Commissions starting the New Year and I’ve already set up my Commission Page just setting up the Contract Details.
Keeping all my Social Media Outlets up-to-date. I will use more Social Media outlets to help with my free advertising.
Spending less on operating expenses, tools, and supplies.
Making revenue on Google ad-sense ads by keeping my blog updated to increase traffic. Trying to make profit with ads on my blog to pay for the expenses of the blog.
Getting Clients and letting subscribers post their art on my blog with their own art gallery.
Offering Clients the option to be a premium member where they may be able to create their own profile page and describe who they are and post in the artist tips page giving themselves credit for the post as advertisement for them and there business/Art.
Attending more Comic Cons and Business events to interact with the community and other fellow artist to get ideas and share my art and business ideas.
Updating my YouTube Channel and creating brief effective tutorials that will help artist and Entrepreneurs on a daily basis.
Thank You for taking the time to read and for being a subscriber to BrownsComicArt! If you feel as if their’s something that I should work on or an idea you have that can help me in the near future than feel free to let me know! All comments and feedback are appreciated! Thank You!
To start off I’m gonna answer the question to the post which is no it’s not bad nor is it shaming or degrading women to draw a nude female or half nude woman. I’m writing this post because in the past when I was a little younger I’ve heard and gotten a lot of backlash for some of the art I was drawing and one good example is the drawing to the left that I did back in 2011. Now back when I had my old blog I use to create drawings like this and I felt as if it was natural, just a normal strip club setting. I wasn’t trying to say this is what all women do, no to me its a drawing of a hot woman dancing in a strip club.
Just a regular cover page. To be honest I’ve created a post like this recently but I bring it up because I have a lot of followers on my social media sites and on Instagram that post a lot of nude art particularly of women. Either doing very erotic acts or just showing a very pretty nude female which there is nothing wrong with. There are people that have sent DM’s to these artist asking “why you only draw nude women” and to be honest a lot of people like to see that its a natural beauty and there should be no shame in the nude body. Nudity is art and once again if you don’t like it simply just click away don’t view it.
So many people are out there to judge and say its an offense to women, people are more interested in nude art than anything and nude art is where the money is. Just like nude photography a lot of people would pay to see a nude model in a nice setting which you can always fine on Instagram. They may post the photo censored to promote themselves and then sometimes they or the owner of the photographer may sell or post the photos for a fee to make money. And lets be honest there would be more sells with nude photography with pretty models than with models with clothing on. It’s not saying people are perverts but its a work of art and to me its professional and makes your art collection and gallery look better.
You can’t let what people think deter you because there is always gonna be someone/people that will criticize your work, but its alright to criticize just do it in a way to help the artist get better with there work and not to make them feel as if what their drawing is wrong. I just want to encourage never stop living your dream or career just because someone tells you your art offends me especially for a drawing similar for it because its a strip club setting. When I took my art down my other blog because of my drawings like this I lost a big audience and I had a lot of people disappointed because they loved the art I was doing and even said it was different that’s the part that they love about what I draw. Always go with your heart when you draw and remember that nude art is not bad nor is it offensive its art and it a very good talent to have. Thanks for reading and I hope this helps all artist not just here on WordPress but also on social media trying to promote their artwork! Check out my art Gallery pages when you get the chance all my galleries have been updated and have a lot of drawings to view. Also, follow me on social media for updates coming to brownscomicart!
