As I've noticed, I have around 50 watchers. Which seems quite a number for a person who posts almost nothing because he stuffs all his commissions in a separate favorite folder.
But I have a question if it would be more convenient if I start posting new commissions directly to my gallery?
I mean, I'll try to get a permission from the artist to post the work, and if he/she gives it, I'll post it with all proper credits and links to his/her profile. If I won't be able to obtain such permission, then it goes to my fave gallery like it used to be.
While I was reluctant to post works that don't belong to me in my gallery, I saw many people doing it (with proper credits) so I guess it's not forbidden. Even some artists that I commissioned from asked if I would like to post their works in my gallery instead of theirs. So I started to consider this option and discovered a number of reasons to do it.
1.It presents an opportunity to attract more watchers who like themes of my commissions
2.It's more convenient for my existing watchers as they get immediate update when I post new commission. While with the fave folder they have to visit my page from time to time to check if there is something new.
3.More convenient communication as it gives an opportunity to comment and ask questions to me and not the artist who may not be interested in talking about such themes.
4.It sort of gives an extra exposure of artist's work as someone may find his/her page through my gallery and even make a commission, having an example in front of the eyes.
So what to you think? Should I stick to posting commissions the way I do now? Or it's more convenient for you if I stored them in my gallery?
