Tip #4: Publish Your Artwork through Social Media
Well, it’s not a secret that social media is a big thing nowadays right!? 😛 But it’s not that easy to get noticed in this media over flooded social space. My recommendation is to share your 3D work in groups or in places which are made for 3d art. For me, Facebook is the best place to share digital art.
Places to share your work:
- Facebook Blender Group
- Facebook BlenderArtists Group
- Facebook Ten thousand hours Group
- Facebook 3D Modelling and Animation Group

Why not handing your artwork over to someone that is specialized in sharing artwork and spread the word? Many well known CG news sites offer the possibility to send in your 3d work. Also, many CG forums offer similar attractive ways to share your work in a special place. You submit your artwork and they will probably share it to thousands of people online.
Tip #6: Create a Making-Of / Tutorial about Your Artwork
Every CG interested person is wondering how breathtaking artwork were made. Sharing the workflows of your renders in breakdowns and tutorials, will draw some extra attention on your work and help other people to get better.
