\o/ welcome :)
Wow, love the colors and style. Definitely awesome!
Thank you very much :)
Awesome debut! Welcome to Dribbble :)
Very nice indeed. Oh and welcome.
The Eidenberg's are really kickin some ass. Nicely done.
Haha thank you:) @Mitchell Bernstein
Thank you all! :)
This is really cool. I am curious about the un-textured leg - is there any meaning behind that you'd like to share with me (us)?
Thank you very much @Linevoy Actually, no reason at all. This was just an exercise, since I've never drawn a female body before. Hopefully there will be more professional drawings in the future ;) I have some issues with the face and the feet. Do not like it at all. The rest, I'm pretty satisfied with
@Anna Eidenberg With 264 views and 31 likes, that's good 'Dribbble metrics' considering the people following are under 10 currently. Either way its numbers (in my opinion) that say your work is appreciated by other artist-peers of high calibre. : ) Welcome Dribbble!
I don´t really understand how "it works" yet. I'll look around here for a few days and try to figure it out. Thank you so much! What a welcome! :) :) :) @Linevoy
There is no formal book on Dribbble metrics and nobody really talks about it. As far as I know (anyone can jump in here), the crown jewel is 'follows'. Follows attribute to the number of views (a lot folks are only watching their people) and views attribute to likes. Most artists getting astronomical huge likes also have astronomically high number of followers. For example, right now you have 290 views and 31 likes. Thats basically 9:1 - which is really good. In web terms, every view without a like is a bounce. Meaning someone wanted a closer look but in the end it wasn't what they thought was cool. I'm not trying to be negative. Dribbble is an awesome place and I feel proud to be amongst such worldly awsome talent. Its a fun place and you will enjoy. Have fun and meet really cool artists and be inspired by others like yourself. : )
@Linevoy You will go crazy if you speculate to much :P As you say, there is no formal book and as far as I know good work will get much likes, there is people that got 10000 followors that dont get much likes and others that got a handfull of followers that recieves 1000s of likes, check this one for example http://dribbble.com/shots/561492-Checklist or Aleksandr Novoselov first shots http://dribbble.com/havoc
I agree @Mikael Eidenberg, you could drive yourself crazy trying to ;game the game; at Dribbble. I would never suggest anyone to do that. The first example 'Checklist' has a two variables I didn't mention earlier: 'Asset maturing' and the other is the 'Bucket Modifier'. His piece is 7 months old, so its been maturing on the vine and his piece is in 354 buckets! Outstanding! The second example 'Havoc' didn't show up, but I get your point about this guy. The piece called icon has 10k views with 1k likes. He's got 5 months of maturity and bucket modifier of 175. I wish I had more time to really analyze these numbers with more definition, it really is fascinating. : ) There is only one soul who could really output such data. That would be Dribbble itself.
@Linevoy yeah but the reason I mention them was because both of them came out of nothing and got about 80-90% of those likes the first day :) Anyways, let us skip the analytics here hehe
Hehe.. Thanks :) Mainly here to get inspiration from others and ,hopefully, eventually a little constructive criticism and feedback on my work :) I hope I will be able to put my performance anxiety and self-criticism aside and not to worry so much about "likes" and "followers" and "wievs"
oops :) @Linevoy @Mikael Eidenberg
@Mikael Eidenberg Good discussion. Done and done. Sorry @Anna Eidenberg for hijacking your page.
