    Maybe "shell" is the wrong term...lol. I don't EVEN know!


    I have been amassing many cartoons and artworks and things of that nature...but I've never been too up on websites and blogs and all that kind of thing....I'm old, okay? ;)


    What would I need to do, anyway? Do I need to get a server for the site and then have someone build a site for me? Or, is it better to DIY my own site with like a free shell or framework or whatever it's called?

    What do you other artists do for such things?

    Thanks

    For posting artworks, try Behance. It is a page wherein you could showcase your creative artworks and have the best opportunity to be discovered.

    Hey, if you're just trying to share your art online, try these:

    - Reddit: try these sub-reddits, they are like the sub-forums here, others just upvote posts that they find interesting, the platform might take a little getting used to.

    hxxps://www.reddit.com/r/Heavymind/ (thought-provoking deep art)
    hxxps://www.reddit.com/r/DrugArt/ (art made by people under the influence of various substances)
    hxxps://www.reddit.com/r/trees/ (Marijuana specific sub-reddit. if your art is specifically related to weed, you can post there)
    (Replace the "hxxps" with "https" for the links, I'm not sure if this forum allows direct links to other web-pages)

    - Instagram: download the app on your phone or tablet, post pics are use hashtags so people can find them. This is the easiest., I use it quite often.

    - DeviantArt: This is very easy as well, just make an account and start uploading your art to your online gallery.

    Also, you can try an art-specific forum, like WetCanvas

    If you're trying to sell, try: Etsy, Redbubble, or bigcartel.

    If you'd like to build your own page, you can do it. I would suggest looking up some tutorials on this if you're unfamiliar with it, you will most likely need a webhosting service. You may also need to learn about PHP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. If you're interested, try it, might be fun.

    If you're looking for ways to build a site WYSIWYG style, there are many services online to help.

    Also, if you get a chance, can you post some of your work, I'm interested in seeing it, I love cartoons. Good luck.

    If you're talking about web templates, then you should look into hosting and create your site in Wordpress. It's very easy to do, and has access to many free to use web templates that would be perfect for that.
