My Etsy shop [link] reached one year of existence just today, and I'm celebrating with this long-as-heck post (who was made of a massive orgy of copy/paste in Photoshop)! :°
To explains myself a bit more on these : While opening the Etsy shop I thought it would be a nice thing to launch the sales by adding a little drawing with each purchase, as a reward for the brave
firsts customers. I somehow took an interest in them, and continued them throughout the year.
They're put in (global) chronological order.
I hope you can see the evolution haha;; (The early ones makes me cry a bit. So many wrongly placed eyes.) Also I decided mid-year that it was probably better for me to do less, but allow me a little more time on each.
Some were requests from buyers, most are just linked to the products bought. (yeeeaahhh, ponies MOSTLY, I know;; )
About the timeline :
- All those in white with regular pencil are from february / early march. Those where automatically added with each purchase. I did a lot and got fed up quickly. lol Stopped for about a month.
- Started again in April with the colored pencils ones, tried new papers and settled on kraft one + white Posca. Still were automatic rewards until the end of the little squared drawings.
- Started back but gave them only for a certain amount of money bought in merchandise. I'm still settling on that way to work, now giving them for 25$ and up. :3 The watercolors were a special christmas offer.
