09 Sep 2021 marks my 2nd year on youtube platform. If you are new here or have not heard about my channel , I am actively making arts on youtube channel . Do a search on mom who sketch or click the link below ,you will be directed to it. I would say that, I am surprise that I have come this far in making art videos. When the channel is launched 2 years back , I was just feeling excited back then and just wanted to try out, nothing serious about it. I even intended to treat it as a random upload of my drawings on places I have been to with my 2 children. At that time, I feel it is more meaningful to document my memories in term of drawing them out.
I did not start anything seriously for the first 9 months and only less than 5 videos . After that, I decided to make a swift decision that I really wanted to go into arts. After that decision, I really pick up watercolor and sketchbook to start drawing whatever I love. I spent alot of times on looking at artists’ art videos. And I think that is by far the best experience in learning through observation. I was incredibly falling in loves with making colors , good or bad. I just posted them at first twice per month , then to once per week. It was such a consistent upload of videos after videos.
I wouldn’t say I am successful in youtube in terms of ranking, but I witnessed the growth, week after week. Today I have about 80+ videos and these are my journey of the growth in my arts.
One thing for sure, I did witnessed my arts evolved over time. I changed my styles sometimes, I worked with different mediums, I tested my arts. So far I got 285 subscribers to date.
For beginner artists who wanted to try out arts , youtube is a good platform to get exposure. Why I say that , because youtube is a search engine and it consist a library of videos. Your videos will not be lost overtime( it worked differently on instagram / facebook/ twitter etc ).
I sulks at instagram/facebook . I really have no ideas on how to grow on these social media at all. But I really put in alot of efforts on youtube instead. I feel You will see the growth on yourself , your arts every week( if you upload consistently).Not only that, you will see that your editing skill will improve over time 🙂 Another advantage is , you can make friends on youtube with the same interest. Believe me, you will grow in terms of your arts.
