As an artist there is much business related things involved like marketing, I'm just here to emphasize on social media. I get that you need it to grow, but I don't really understand any of it other than deviant art. I'm currently trying to get into Twitter, they've done a good job with managing how well you're doing; giving you statistics and such (I really like this).

How relevant is Tumblr, I get that you guys could care less about that place but it's pretty important I'm assuming because of all the losers on there who fall for 'kawaii anime girls' which is what I'm drawing.

Any other places I should hit? What should I focus more on? I'm really trying to put Google+ in the picture and I see potential but right now I'm too small to see a reason to stop.

pic related: it's something I did today. To further promote myself I live stream on Twitch when ever I draw; I never go one without the other. I understand I'm not 'great' but I've got the determination and trust me, I put in the hours.

Pinterest should be right up your alley. Don't know how spreading your art all over the internet is gonna make you money though.

It's more of a side job. Right now I'm far from it but it's realistic. There's Patreon, Donations, Commissions, the possibility of gaining enough popularity that you become a Twitch Partner and gain subscribers. There's YouTube where I can make tutorials, speed paints, etc and gain monitizating (im a youtube partner but that doesnt mean shit because I only have 1 video that made it happen.)... There's probably other ways; I'm just unaware of them at the moment.

There IS game developement but that takes time and I'm not at that skill level right now. I can probably handle mobile at my current state.

Tumblr is extremely relevant when it comes to showing off your art portfolio. It is much more trafficked than DeviantArt, it's why if you go look at /ic/ people post their art on Tumblr so that it spreads places. Tumblr isn't relevant for discussion based on how it's website works but it's much better than here for example when it comes to a public place for your portfolio. The key thing is that other people link your work. You link your twitter account so that you have followers, and then you can tweet about your twitch streams or YouTube videos to generate more revenue, also a subtle hint to your Patreon.
