For my MA project I’ll try and figure out a formula that artists on Artstation intentionally or unintentionally use to gain an increase in popularity. By popularity I mostly mean followers.
In my Learning Agreement I’ve described that I’m using Artstation because it’s a platform for creative people that are willing to learn and gain inspiration from each other. It’s not a suitable platforms for models and ‘selfie takers’ like Instagram and Facebook.

I’ll come up with a formula and test it on my own work. I’ll then upload it to Artstation and and the end of the year determine how big of an increase in the audience members I get.

Something I’m taking into account right now when looking at popular, well known artists’ works:

  1. Composition
  2. Colour scheme
  3. Overall mood
  4. Character appeal/charisma
  5. Lighting
  6. Backgrounds/environment
