I was curious about the current top earning artists on patreon since I looked many years ago and of course it was Sakimichan and saw this thinking people were finally getting tired of her but no, she’s sitting at around 8,000 patrons but for some reason I don’t find her in many search results of top patreon artists unless I just use her username. Has anyone new been up and coming lately with more interesting art? Noticing that most of the popular artists from 2008 deviant art who broke away to instagram/twitter/tumblr seem to have better long term staying power than new artists from the last few years. Saw all the sakimichan clones through this thread but they don’t seem to be drawing the same appeal which is interesting to me.

No. 1179859

It actually is an interesting discussion, at least for me, because sometimes it’s so obvious what the artist’s gender/ideology is, and other times it’s more ambiguous.

She’s kind of right though, or maybe it’s just personally relatable to me. “Queer” people are depressing when they make everything about politics, but I can see why saying this (especially on Twitter) would piss people off lol. Maybe I missed the point but it seems she wants more non-fujoshi straight women to be into art / making comics so that she could have friends and followers with common interests, but in general they’re more into writing and stay in “normie” spaces.

She worded it poorly and was kinda dumb for posting it at all but I understand what she's saying. Honestly, LGBTQ just means fujoshi/coomer male/woman with internalized misogyny 70% of the time on online and that makes it incredibly hard to relate to people ime. It's like when you're trying to talk to a """gay fakeboi""" and you know that both of you are straight women but the fakeboi insists on calling herself kweer and unique and so different from cishets uwu, therefore creating a boundry between you two that really wouldn't exist in a sane society.

Even when all these gay friends cheer her on and assure her in the replies that they support her work nevertheless she remains this ungrateful. She's done a ton of stupid shit too like changed her white side character into a black bisexual man retroactively for clout points and edited Hanzo from Overwatch to look "more Asian" because she felt the original model had features that were "too white" and got herself in hot water with Asians for that kek

That's the motivation behind this.

Oh, she's ungrateful allright. What she said in the thread was basically "stop following me you stupid gays and replace yourselves with NORMIES who love this NORMAL heterosexual content" which in itself sounds awful. But even besides that she has a sizable audience that has always been very supportive of her work and remained loyal for years yet she chooses to alienate them all in one twitter thread because nothing is enough for her. It's basic online content creator hubris, you turn against your audience when something you created doesn't receive the praise you think it should instead of reflecting on your own skills as a storyteller and an artist.

She still wants to be seen as progressive though, so trying to distance yourself from a community that could easily cancel you by making a thread about how you wish you had more straight followers isn’t exactly the brightest idea.

She could have just posted the het art she wants to draw and faced much less drama than she has right now.

No. 1180763

It's not like she got "cancelled" over some petty misunderstanding, she had an unsolicited meltdown accusing her gay audience of not making her feel welcomed despite them never giving her anything but support on her ventures despite her focus on straight romances, called them abnormal and finished it off by calling the people telling her to calm down "radfems" which is the equal of branding someone as nazis in the twittersphere. She bit the hand that fed her, this isn't some ouroboros situation of kweers attacking each other but someone fucking up with her perpetual victim complex and letting her insecurities get the best of her.

No. 1180775

>source: anon's ass
Your cope doesn't matter in this context anyway, the point is that she saw that according to a poll she has 2/3 LGBT audience, then threw a tantrum about it framing them as the reason why her comic project about a straight romance isn't doing so well. Whether they're really gay or spicy straights doesn't make a difference since the end result is her being uncomfortable by being followed by this presumed LGBT crowd and used them as a scapegoat for her own inability to create something that would interest her target audience.

No. 1180781

Why is imaging young characters who aren't even real as adults instead of you mainly draw 18+ characters? Would you rather she draw the kid? She's doing the right thing according to people who don't want lewds of kids, but now its an issue to age up when its not even showing signs of being sexual? Do what is wrong here?

No. 1180783

She told the truth. I just don't get why she posted this when she knows in her soul that her fandom is comprised mostly of adults and minors with personality disorders, and they all love to get in their feelings over the slightest thing. Normie chick who's a little weird wants to network with other normie chicks who are a little weird. What's the problem? Some just need to just accept that certain people are just in the middle, it's not either Facebook/Goodreads Becky or Twitter gigaqueer Kai (xey/xem) kek

No. 1180785

Tbh from the past “dramas” that surged up about her she seems like a person who can’t shut up lol like the type that keeps blabbering and saying whatever is on their mind and they get in trouble irl. Drawing herself cowering and calling people that are straight normies (gays can be normies too so it felt like shes calling them abnormal) Seems like a person that isn’t aware of social cues. This could have all been avoided had she just posted her straight art silently (which wouldve attracted straight nerds and artfags anyway) or used the right words

If there was a flashforward scene with the 5 year old (anon is wrong anyway and she's psychic btw, another fictional point added) where she's an adult, then it would be fine? Id rather people draw sexy aged up versions (sexual or not) than canon 5 years olds being sexy. This is just retarded sjw at it again when the end result is 18+ on purpose. Also how can you even distinguish sexually charged art to what Sakimichi did here which is just reimagining what she look like a an adult. And the spy show has tons of fanservice from the mom, so who's to say the daughter wouldn't pick up on using sexuality to kill people too? Sakimichi isdrawing would could be canon 15+ years later.

tbh it's relevant to the current discussion because she never learned her lesson and continued with shitty takes like that. She's just flown under the radar for a good while.

NTA but for me personally the aging up of a 3-year old little child to sexualize her is gross because it implies you see a completely nonsexual and in some ways "pure" female character and your thoughts immediately go to "you know what she needs? big ass tits half-bared and a cock in her face". While it's true it's an adult body in the aged up version it's still in poor taste to me.

No. 1181010

the character's personality comes from an existing child character, it's impossible to divorce that child character from the sexual adult art in our head. honestly not a big deal with teenage characters, it's disgusting to have this done to a character so young. maybe it's not legally wrong, but it's so degenerate and distasteful and sad that this is the content fans of this show want. not one female character, not even a child, is safe from drooling asshole men.

saki is drawing this because men want to jerk off to Anya and this is the only way they can in the open

No. 1181064

This, at least teenage characters have an established personality besides of just being a cute child character for a family dynamic like Anya is.

What I want to know is, aside from suppposed 0% fees (yeah we'll see about that), what is going to be the difference between this and any other aggregate commissions website that eventually crumbles into a hot mess of underpriced art and furry bullshit?

Well at least she's aged up. Because she doesn't have a canon aged design and this is fanart of a hypothetical aged up version of an existing fictional character, all goes back to what was said about it not being an issue if she didn't say who the character was. Side Anya has to comparitive adult version, if she didnt say who it was, it would be random sexy pretty girl from creator. I don't know Sakimichi, I just don't care as long as its not a child drawn into it. Because it obviously looked 18+, why would it matter? No pedo is getting their rocks off to non-lolicon.

it's a zero win situation considering the other shit people call "pedo bait" other than only drawing them in a pure, innocent, non-sexual way because they were a kid in the show even though at some point children grow up and have sex and somehow people will still find a way to call a completely nonsexual image sexual because of a camera angle or something.

it is also completely different to wonder what a fictional character looks like as an adult and be attracted to them versus doing it to a real person. One of them is actually real

No. 1181230

This is ironic considering that 50% of wOkE redrawings are just racist stereotypes, but since she doesn't like the "queer" community that's a bad thing now.
Overall I believe her wording was really stupid because she came off as homophobic, but on the other hand I understand wanting to distance yourself from the queer community, I personally became inactive on my art twitter because I got tired of the type of audience I got.
Regardless, I think the art mob would have hated her no matter what she wrote, because there's no way of saying "the LBGT community is annoying" without twitter turning into a shitshow.

Exactly. Its just invisible grandstanding to stir up controversay and its not even on Sakimichi's fault. Its people trying to non-fictionalize the feelings of something fictional because "but they used to be/are a kid!!" But no, not in this instance they aren't. I just don't see or understand how its still a 5 year old body and mentally. Its not and clearly wasn't intended to allude to the 5 year old version in Sakimichi's version.

Obviously it's the same character but if you're looking at an obviously adult version and still thinking of a 5 year old, get help. No lolicon is looking at aged up photos of Anya, they will go to Rule34 and look for 5 year old versions already. It's an argument that doesn't work and there's nothing even 5 year old like involving this version she made of the character.

No. 1181538

Imo the issue doesn't lie in the aged up version being pedobait or whatever, but in seeing a clearly toddler aged girl and only being able to think about what she'd look like older when you can legally fuck her. Other anons have said this before, I don't get why you can't understand how this is weird

No. 1181539

Mind you this involves design, not a 1:1 of the character. There's already a design by the same author that's older too, so being mad that it looks like Anya in Sakimichi is dumb when there is a design by the artist that looks like her too to begin with.

I honestly do wonder what characters will look like older. People did that with Naruto like crazy until Shippuden came out. This isn't a new concept and it's being targeted only towards Sakimichi which is what isn't sitting right with me.

The problem is that this kind of artist draws child characters that are popular right now on a sexualized way. Why are they even doing that? It's one thing to wonder what the character would look like older, it's another when the first thing they think every time they see a child character is "I gotta draw this little girl as an adult woman with her tits out". Why do they do it is the question.

No. 1181611

>why they do it is the question
coomer money. Next topic please, sakimichan is a dead fucking horse, it's boring.

No. 1181616

artists draw characters sexualized all the time. A character is an arbitary being. It isn't like someone looking at an actual child and thinking "wow they're gunna be hot when they get older" it's people thinking what this abstract, designed character would look like older and probably imprinting on the character, use them as some sort of self-insert, fantasize fanfiction or whatever fucking else.

maybe they draw the "little girl" as an adult woman because they want to draw a sexualized adult instead of a sexualized child. Characters are abstract concepts, they can be whatever the fuck you want them to be. They do it because they're characters. They aren't real. You can explore whatever concept you want with them.

this topic pops up every time a popular character comes up. these characters will be the same canon age while you are turning into dust in a casket and yet people acting as if this is the same as if someone made sexual comments about a minor in real life.

The same reason why people draw only adult versions that are flowery and pretty, some people like drawing sexy versions. Literally the only thing posted so far is 2 clips of the final image and it doesn't look sexual just because she has tits. You guys are seething for no reason when yes, it WAS a 5 year old version at one point, but Sakimichi isn't doing a magic wand, suddenly adult but still mind ofa child. It's a literal future idea version. Everyone can have their own idea of what an adult version of a character might look like. Let people have fun. It's not all because of wanting to be a gross scrote. yes she makes works that men like, but you have to be insane to dismiss that she does have a female fanbase. Her rendering, specifically, is very romantic and that's already directed towards women because it's created by a woman. Not everything drawn in a sexual way is only intended for men and that's such a stupid one way train of thought.

Then why should it matter as long as it's an adult version? It's clearly not a 5 year old in an adult body.

So what exactly do you want because nothing morally wrong is being done here.

No. 1181709

I don't even understand why anons keep arguing that nothing in Sakimichans version alludes to Anya and that it doesn't remind anyone of the original character. It does, because that's who the art is of and who it's supposed to look like.

No. 1181721

It doesn't look like her aside from parts of her outfit and the hair. What part of her version looks like it aside from cosmetic? Please tell me which part still looks like a child, anon? Characters like Daria have canon adult and child version, but drawing her as an adult doesn't make people imagine the child version only. No one fucking does that except people purposely looking for an issue in art. >>1181616 is right in regards to it literally only being an issue because you want it to be an issue when on the surface level, most people will see it as "Cool, adult version/take of Anya" and instead of making it some pretty thing only as an adult, and wholesome, they wanted a sexy version and most likely because the mother character, who ISNT even her real mother, is sexual in how she presents herself. It's fictional. It's all fiction. No matter what, someone is going to jack off to the work and I'd rather them think of an adult version when doing it rather than going to rule34 and paying artists commissions of child versions. Jfc.

No. 1181724

No. 1181745

Its obviously supposed to be her, but no one is looking at an adult version over a child version just to think of the child version. It's a reimagining as an adult. It's as basic as that.

It is based on the child, did you read the description? I don't understand why anons are wking sakimi so hard, even if this was objectively ethical the people that are consuming and defending this content all have weird little anime girl icons posting stupid memes where they make toddler looking characters parroting "It is fiction!". I don't understand why anons can't understand the issue, aka sakimi producing content for these lolicon degenerates, and it being fucking weird looking at an obvious child (who looks, acts and talks like a baby) and going "what if she was fuckable?" The true disgusting part is sakimi's degen pandering stooping this low.

What the fuck are you even talking about, it's clear that most people would prefer it if none of the characters were sexualized. Stop repeating the same shit arguments, it's degen and that's it.

All her art looks photobashed and hastily put together, I don't understand how anyone even cares about her anymore. I was just looking through R34 to get some examples because I remember she made hilariously bad artworks of Zhongli and Childe where they looked like two white men with badly photoshopped wigs and saw that she drew Nezuko from Demon Slayer, another character that's supposed to be a child.

And even with the "aged up version" it's always just barely above the legal age. It's never "an established underage character with a real personality reimagined at 25" but shit like "the quintessential cute toddler at 15". At least when Sakimichan lewded that Demon Slayer girl she actually had a canonical older version that was referenced and she was drawn like an adult in the pinup, but this Anya that she drew looks way too youthful even if she's given balloon anime tits.

The bottom line here is that it's disturbing and depressing that you can never have a cute female child character without people finding loopholes to coom over her, when SpyxFamily came out I predicted this shit immediately but was hoping that I'd be wrong for once.

I’m one of the oldest people and I pretty much only talk to the teachers and sometimes people will come up to me when I’m studying. I’ve never projected anything negative and I know that I do good work especially since I’ve had to repeat art school so I’m also ahead of a lot of people in the class and I don’t want to be up my own ass but I’m wondering if people don’t talk to me much because of that?

I am sure that your work is lovely but it is likely more that people are self concerned. With their own lives, their own studies, their own art. You being older may have something to do with it, but if you would like to speak with others it's probably best to approach those that interest you. Neutrally speaking, people are even further in their own spheres in this day and age.

I would try to stray away from thinking that it is due to your skill. People are thinking about themselves. Until you have reason to think that, it is self alienating.

Have you been working with a grid? It's a great help when you're a beginner; in art class we were recommended to make a simple grid out of cardboard frame with strings, so if you're not working digitally, you can try this too

No. 1185922

What knowledge you need has nothing to do with perspective, but proportions instead. If you're drawing without reference, then they can be as wide as you like, depends on your preference. If you are using reference, like a real vase in front of you, couple of meters away, then you can use the old school method of measuring with a pencil. Extend your hand fully in front of you, hold your pencil horizontally, and move your thumb so that the width of the elipse is 'recorded' on the pencil. Then, while still holding your arm extended, with the thumb at the same spot, rotate your pencil vertically and measure how many times is the elipse repeat in the height. That's how you get accurate proportions. Grid is useful to understand composition on the canvas while this practice helps you understand proportions in relation to themselves and other objects.

another way that i have used is described pretty well here https://citizensketcher.com/2014/07/23/step-by-step-drawing-example-davis-house-dot-plot/ it takes a little practice but you basically use dots and marks to mask out the overall shape of your subject before you draw any lines. the grid method like nonnas have shown above is handy but it can be a bit of work to set it up, this dot map combined with some basic eye measuring techniques is really useful.

So I'm an artist studying different skintones because I don't know much about how lighting works for them. I wasn't sure where to ask this because of all the arguments surrounding the topic.

Top row is how this woman's photos usually look (taken in a bathroom). The bottom row photos are both her under bright sunlight, so why do those two look like different skin shades? Just looking to know the technical reason behind this.

No. 1186477

Cold, blue-ish light in the bathroom; warm, orange-ish, strong light of the sun, as simple as that. Bottom left is done in a cold-colored environment, looks more like a photoshoot than just a candid with a phone in a warm colored environment, like bottom right.
It's not unlikely bathroom ones have a bit adjusting going on with contrast.

She has cool undertones so this affects how her skin in general will reflect under different lights. Top two are in dim poor bathroom light that is coming from above her, but theyre also edited. Bottom left is under natural light causing her darks to appear darker while casting shadows. Instead of a golden brown you can see her blues under the light. On the bottom right shes in front of the harsh lighting from the sun during golden hour. This creates shadows if you arent facing straight on. Think of lighting like a filter in terms of contrast. The suns lighting causes her shade of skin to appear lighter while retaining her blue undertones. Picrel is unedited similar skin tone and same undertones. Left is under sunny light but facing towards it. Right is not facing towards the direct light but rather under it, making his darks darker with shadows. Its really all about where the light source is coming from while also taking into considering the undertone of the skin. The shade can always change, but not the undertone. Hope this helps in some way.

This artist’s (Cyarine) work just gets worse over time. She’s drawing more and more ‘diverse’ people but somehow they all either have the exact same face or she makes them ugly as fuck. I went to check on her instagram since she’s one of the guests at the MCM con, but my god she should not be advising people how to draw. Her facial anatomy is so off and she’s been pumping out the same shit for years.

Also heard she’s hated in her own country, but if anyone had details about that I’d appreciate it. Couldn’t find much in the other threads.

No. 1186809

holy shit I know her art has been plateauing/stagnating for awhile now ever since shes been able to sit atop her pile of patreon bucks and hasn't had pressure to improve or actually create good work anymore, but jesus fucking christ this is such poor quality compared to what she used to pump out. the noise filter and color pencil/crayon brush she used make this look like a highschoolers attempt to skinwalk cyarine.

i used to really like her art for the hands, but even her hands (esp in pic related) lately have been resembling more of those thumbcramps/whimsipop sausage fingers than actual hands

from what i remember from cyarines prime posting time on here, she used to get talked about alot mostly due to her being an abusive and spergy POS towards her ex-gf, vio, which caused most of her local art community to dislike her.
shes also time and time again dogpiled her fanbase on smaller instagram accounts and literal 14 year olds on social media before for creating art that resembles her fish-eye autist face "style".

this reminds me, i recently stumbled upon a cyarine skinwalker on instagram who upon first glance I thought actually was cyarine due to how closely resembled the art looked to her old viral style. but even that cyarine skinwalker at this point is making better art than cyarine herself.

guess livestreaming videogames on twitch all day doesn't make someones art better. who wouldve thought. its almost as if every autist ever who decides to start streaming on twitch only does it so they can find an easier way to get money for sitting on their ass doing nothing. happy to see her art has suffered because of it.

Why don't you Finnish nonnies talk more about her here? For example, if I hadn't read your posts in the Finnish thread with Google Translate, I would've never known that she had been drawing a middle-aged man dominating and bullying a teenage Asian girl (or something like that) for years, or that she has always been hinting that she doesn't like the gays, or that she shat on "normie" straight women for liking stuff like 50 Shades of Gray. Had I known that before, I would've never felt bad for her.

Also, does she have no sense of self-preservation? How does she obsess so much over "too many kweer people" liking her hetero stuff that she couldn't shut up about it, but not think about how much the Twitter crowd loves to blow shit out of proportion and cancel people for homo/transphobia all the time?

I don’t mind the stylisation, I understand she isn’t going for a 1:1 ratio drawing. That was just the example chosen. But if you look at her work from a few years ago compared to now, it stagnated and dropped in quality. She’ll post a drawing saying she’s practicing drawing diverse faces and then they all have the same face. Or in this, from one of her million drawings of herself. The anatomy of both the face and pose is completely off. It’s like she’s broken her arm and her face is melting off. The idea of her going to a convention and talking about her art, when all she has is drama from her past partnership with Wacom that fell through due to her being a POS to them publicly, is laughable.

No. 1187059

>Why don't you Finnish nonnies talk more about her here?
Because I don't want to deal with the scrotes ITT whining about le wokies ruining the internet again.

Anyway, I'm someone who has been following her work for years as she's been a big name for a while. She's always been known for drawing self-insert comics, it's obvious that the petite Asian girl is supposed to be her avatar and the big middle-aged guy is her fictional dominant dream boyfriend. She's always been very defensive about liking this dynamic and seemingly developed a guilty conscience over it because having surrounded herself with feminist discourse that talks about misogynist tropes, yet she wasn't able to compartmentalize and enjoy her kink while acknowledging that these people are worried about the real life occurrence of older men abusing younger women.

>she shat on "normie" straight women for liking stuff like 50 Shades of Gray.

No, she said that she wants her audience to be "normie straight girls who like 50 shades of gray". She posed this as a juxtaposition to the "weird queers she can't bond with" so in her mind she has a problem with these gay or bi people enjoying her work because she actually thinks they "can't get it" as if "older character domming over an innocent young sub" was something outlandishly deep and unpopular. Realizing this you can probably see how douchey she sounds, especially because she brought this up A LOT even before that particular thread blew up. Note that she's always drawn het content yet still been popular so it's just her not being satisfied with the numbers she's reaching and not being able to detach herself from the discourse that she herself continuously brought up. Nobody ever shamed her for her kinks or preferences besides she herself.

Another thing that pissed people off was her implying that "gay people hate their female side" or "aren't in touch with their femaleness" and that's "something she can't relate to" as according to her being a same-sex attracted woman means you can't like, relate to or appreciate femininity or femaleness. To top it all off, years ago she used to hover around this well-known LGBT circle and mooched off their reputation to grow her own following.

I'd dig up some receipts if she hadn't gone private and I hadn't unfollowed her, and I don't really care enough either. I mostly pity her for letting her insecurities take the wheel and tell 2/3 of her audience that she doesn't want them following her. But in the end she fully deserved to be lambasted and brought it upon herself, especially when after being confronted about it, in quite a reasonable manner I might add, she started accusing everyone questioning her of being evil terfs to shut them up. It's more about her not respecting her audience, refusing to understand them and being an egoist than legitimately homophobic (which she also seems to be to a slight degree).

>Also, does she have no sense of self-preservation?

Like >>1186918 said I just think she had grown a big head and became blind to her own surroundings, she's gotten away with the "woe is me, for I'm an oppressed hettie" posts before and then stepped over the line to the point people couldn't excuse her anymore. She's been coddled by her fans a lot and got used to being able to say ignorant things, even during this drama she tried to use the "I spoke with my bi and ace friends and they said I was right" defense so that shows you her nonexistent humbleness.

No. 1187075

Samefagging to add:
>She posed this as a juxtaposition to the "weird queers she can't bond with" so in her mind she has a problem with these gay or bi people enjoying her work because she actually thinks they "can't get it" as if "older character domming over an innocent young sub" was something outlandishly deep and unpopular.
I want to clarify this point. It's not at all hard to find other women who like this dynamic, it's like the most popular one of them all and it doesn't take much effort to find other artists that enjoy it. So it falls on her just lashing out at her audience and blaming them of her own insecurities that are supposedly keeping her from connecting with people with similar interests. How I see it and having read enough of her insecure rants while I was still following her, she probably gets jealous of the attention artists similar to her get so she doesn't really want to "be their friends" or anything, she just wants them to praise her work unconditionally.

This is a thing in Finnish drawing/con/fandom circles bc radical queer is strong and there is very toxic atmosfere to basic straight/bi white girls. Also to lesbians but differently bc lesbians are romanticised as long they accept girldick and hate if not accept. Basic straight/bi white girls get kind of bullied by special gender (straight/bi white girls) and treated idk how to describe it. Like: you cant sit with us, youre not cool enough, you don't deserve your audience and you have to agree with me you b** or you get canceled.

10x more men are the same age or older out there fucking teenagers and society at large doesn't give a single shit about it, so i'm not going to get my panties in a wad about what some woman is doing with a legal adult.

No. 1191046

This and an older woman dating a younger man is less problematic by default than the reverse situation anyway because women don't tend to prey on weakness, naivity, inexperience and power imbalance like men do.

No. 1191155

The people saying that sounded so delusional, before this the original artist had less than half of the followers she does now. Who could have expected that it would blow up like this and she didn't call that person out or anything. She just posted about it which she was right to do and it somehow left her immediate circle and people started hating on her for making it so public? Make it make sense

No. 1191285

What's the issue? He's an adult man. Men are the ones who take advantage of the age gaps, not women.

No. 1191289

I honestly don't care about ages as long as it's legal. My grandparents were 15 years apart, died together. There isn't a one reason fits all for age gap couples. It just stems from this hyper worry society has about grooming. Unless you see other red flags, move on.

No. 1191291

completely agree, there was a 10 year age gap between my grandparents.

No. 1191299

When people freak out about it, I remind them that at one point they were 5 years old when their GF/BF was 0. Or something like that. At some point one of you is older or younger, usually, one legal and one illegal when there is a gap [even if you don't meet during that time], so it's not that big of a deal. When you see them controlling, or actual grooming happening, then maybe get worried, but even 19 year olds dating 16 year olds, I'm not 100% freaked over because a lot of people are still in highschool or just graduated and literally still live in that mental state of being a teen. There's a limit and a reason to worry, but when it makes sense, like living in the same town or growing up together and things like that, there isn't a reason to freak. Especially when it's an 18+ dating another 18+. >>1191001 This just seems like a stir the pot Twitter SJW issue.

agreed. anyone can take an advantage of a significant age gap. the idea women never pray on nativity or weakness is how many girls end up getting groomed by other women.

if there are other red flags sure say something but these are both adults where likely no one on the internet knows them personally so it is very parasocial to assume shit

No. 1191978

I agree except if it's two young people. 60 and 70 yr olds are fine but a 15 yr old and 25 yr old 10/10 times never has good intentions. Also there's a lot of risks to the health if they decide to have kids, kids born to parents with a large age gap are at risk for a lot of behavioral disorders

No. 1191983

I dont really find it that disturbing but maybe that's bc the man in question is still a legal adult. I cant really talk on age gaps being icky when I have family members that married with such a large age gap.
But women can most certainly take advantage of minors just as men can, it's just that it tends to happen far less than men bc women commonly aren't such sexual deviants.

I mean, sure anyone can because there are always exceptions, but let's not ignore the fact that it's nearly always men who SEEK out 18 year olds specifically so they can manipulate, trap and groom them.

No. 1192866

I feel exactly the same way as you right now and i’ve been in this cycle for months now. Now i understand why “learning” used to discourage me when i was younger.. Don’t place so much importance and mightiness on art, it’s just lines. Remember why you want to do it in the first place and never give up nonna! Forget the studies if they’re making you stressed and do it for fun. When you get stuck or something looks off check things like anatomy and perspective references simultaneously while doodling or working on a personal piece.

getting death threats is stupid but the example isn't great. the second has the light coming way more from the side than first, even if first doesn't have as clearly defined angle for the light.

No. 1192946

because it uses the "x" and "O" to show that one is right or wrong when there is "no right way to do art", people have said that it's two different lighting sources (even though if you look at the shadow on the feet it is literally the same one), accusing the artist of saying cell shading and front lighting doesn't exist, people trying to overcorrect it, people saying that she didn't include enough information (one person linked Marc Burnet's ambient occlusion tutorial) and said she didn't know/teach enough + being a genshin artist.

This is really why artists don't provide criticism or feedback on art anymore and tutorials are becoming harder to find that aren't paywalled. If you don't include a disclaimer that says "but there's no wrong way to do art", provide no sense that either side is right/wrong or don't/do, etc. you open yourself up to getting harassed and criticized for god forbid trying to provide a tip on how they do things because these people cannot comprehend that not everything is meant for them.

Not sure if its a twitter thing because this is what i see in instagram all the time.

Like as if the tutorial is holding them at chokehold lmao. People just get really triggered over it for some reason. I personally think the tutorial isnt all that helpful (and some other artists QRTed politely about this) because it's a completely different lighting setup for different purposes, but again, it should have just led to a discussion, not a bunch of 15 year old artists feeling opressed over a red X sign

The artist gets praised by their followers for the characters and how “unique” and edgy they are.

It's Kaeya to be specific, and the skin tones are drastically different. I can imagine the original artist eyeballed it and picked a tone that was too light and then continued to up the saturation and luminosity because there's no other way in my mind to get it this wrong.

They are kind of right though, just because an artist doesn't speak english doesn't mean you need to treat them like an idiot or baby. It's already bad enough, there's no need to spam them with even more english

most trans people are transtrenders who are just teenagers who want to feel "special" or think that they can't be the gender they were born as because boys get criticized for wearing pink or whatever dumb irrelevant things normies get up in arms about.

you really think trans people are a meaningful percentage of the population because of twitter bios?

how many actual trans people have you knowingly encountered in real life (you know, the place that actually matters) vs people who aren't trans? you're trying to tell me that if there are 100 people in your grocery store, 10 or more will be trans? if that's your actual, genuine belief, you need medication.

i'm typically a lurker whose just here to read about drama, but i can't get over how much people wring their hands over the internet-diseased idpol hysterics on twitter but then do the same here, just with reverse opinions. it's like migrants-in-caravans level sometimes. if you hate trans people, that's whatever, but it just seems like a lot of projection considering how much this website overwhelmingly targets women more than any other demographic.

Kind of an easy fix but it depends on what kind of drawing tablet you’re using and pen pressure settings. I’m assuming that the guy owns a different tablet than yours or has a different pen pressure sensitivity. It really makes a world of difference when you tinker with it. Hope this helps nonnie.

Besides calling fujos disgusting and rotten for shipping male characters she also thanked the government of China for banning the portrayal of gay relationships in Chinese media and when called out she tried to pull the "but I draw coomer big titty lesbian porn so I can't be homophobic" defense.

It looks more like he has changed some of the brush texture/tip settings to me. I haven't done digital for a couple months, so I forget the actual terms, but when you go into the brush settings, you can change the (I think) density or size of the brush texture/tip stuff. I've used this to change the grainy-ness of a brush before and it got "smoother" like the guys brush looks like. It could be what the other anons mentioned but if that doesn't work, try playing around with the brush tip settings.

Unless you're really popular or market, its harder to find clients doing purely "vanilla." I'm a primarily sfw artist who opened up nsfw comms a few times and most of the requests I got were for stuff like ferals, centaurs, furries and the like. The biggest money is in degen stuff, but if you can find fetishes you're okay with drawing you can insert yourself into a niche. Like anything in art, you'll make more money the longer you keep doing it as you gain more popularity, so this works best as a long-term goal rather than a way to get quick cash.

Draw popular shows and follow artists/interact a little. If you get one person to reblog, that'll help. Also sexy art challenges with popular Characters like the shirt challenge or 'draw your oc in..'. People like ZONE reblog Ankha fanarts if you tag her. Theres options, you just need to immerse yourself in which subgenre of porn you want to draw. Lolicon/Shota and Furry always get tons of hits.

Honestly depends on the style you're doing. You could make up your own style and design a bunch of differently-proportioned characters, but they'd all have to adhere to the same rules of your style.

They usually pick out a franchise I'm at least vaguely familiar with, or a character they really love and can tell me a lot about to fill the gaps for me. It makes me feel motivated to finish the piece since it feels less like I'm working on it just to toss it in the twitter void, I focus more on it being a little gift for a friend.
The only possible downside is accidentally gaining a following from a fandom you don't care about and don't want to be stuck in I guess.

I feel you. I don’t want to be a part of any fandom, social media scares me and I feel weird drawing some character over and over.
I too need to feel inspired to draw, the subject has to matter to me. What I do is that I try to watch a movie or a series which interests me and pick some character from there (if there’s someone who catches my attention). But I’m just a hobby artist, without any actual following. Like I said, I don’t engage on SM, I put out something twice a month, get some likes and I’m ok with it.

No. 1209740

you might not be a fan of anything enough to make fanart, but you must like some tv shows, books, movies, video games right? analyze what kind of media you enjoy, is it fantasy, sci fi, slice of life? do you love colorful illustrations, more graphic work, very intricate pencil work? do you enjoy media that focuses on human characters or animals?

once you find out what subjects and art you truly love, you can start creating artwork you love too. you don't need to draw fanart at all, but you need to know what you like before you're able to create.

No. 1209753

sorry, forgot to answer your question like a dumbass lol but yes it's very possible to gain a following with original art only! you don't even have to be highly technically skilled either, you just have to be consistent with your theme and style. that's why it's so important to truly understand what you love before you create

Sorry for rambling, but its definitely possible to gain a following with just original work and get commissions that way. Just be ready for that to take a few years to achieve.

I was one of the anons lamenting over not wanting to draw fanart, and I don't know why, because I'm sure I've heard it before, but what you said just clicked with me. I won't draw fan art but there are some concepts from media I like and will implement more into my own work.


Also valuable reminders.

On the subject of where people spend money, does anyone here have any luck with places like reddit?

No. 1210222

On the topic of gaining followers from 90% original art, could this apply to traditional art too? I do paintings and pencil illustrations in my spare time and follow people who've got a decent audience from that stuff, but it seems much less common. I want to start selling and am dedicating time to improve, but idk if it's more worth it to post my stuff online (takes more time to be noticed) or just in irl galleries (takes more money to be noticed).

No. 1210318

Plenty of people make a name for themselves with original art, most of the artists that I follow are like that because I prefer seeing original creations than endless amounts of fanart. Drawing fanart requires you to follow trends and stay one step ahead of everyone else and that gets exhausting and soul sucking, it's not a sustainable model because it will burn you out sooner or later and the disinterest will shine through. Just look at latest Sakimichan pieces, they're atrocious and people have gotten so bored of them she's now resorted to edgy shock value like the aged up sexy Anya to keep the numbers up.

And even going viral with your fanarts doesn't guarantee a follower base. Like others already said, art is a social hobby and gaining popularity is honestly all about connections. That's why so many popular artists are subpar at best, they just happened to be at the right place at the right time and knew the right people.

No. 1210380

Haven't used Ko-Fi in a long time. NTA, but damn. I didn't know they advanced far enough for requests. When I used it, it was just Gold Access [So posts that are hidden on the timeline, they can be seen] and just donations/thank yous. That's pretty awesome.

This isn't always the case, but when I see an artist with a large following for their original work I look to see what Fandom they came from. A lot of people drop off when they stop making fanart, but they still have enough of a base to keep the momentum going. Personally I can't see myself wasting that much time in a fandom, but I guess you just really have to like it. Nevertheless this is comforting to read.

I'm honestly getting a little bored of even looking through mountains of fanart myself. It really does burn me out.

You don't have to disclose that you use 3D models, in fact, lots of comic artists are very open about them as simply apart of the drawing process! I think the important distinction is using them as a crutch vs as a tool. Greg Smallwood has been my favourite artist for a while and he uses references and 3D models frequently, it's interesting to see the process when time saving is important.

No. 1210651

100% doable. It's harder than doing fanart but it's far from impossible. Though it helps immensely to have a niche/aesthetic you do consistently, or find communities to leech attention off of. I do sfw monsters/creature character designs and got most of my followers from labelling my art "furry" and consistently dropping pictures of stuff like cartoon bugs.
Having a niche also helps a ton in getting commission clients, because clients are gonna look for artists who are good at drawing their prefered subject matters. I.E. if you wanna get clients for like TTRPG character art, put yourself out there consistently drawing fantasy character designs and tagging them as stuff like "DnD".

No. 1210660

You don't have to go that far to be a popular NSFW artist. NTR is a very popular fetish.

No. 1211261

How do you handle the fear of your art/ideas being plagiarized?

As someone who doesn't really do social media, I used to have a decent following on deviant art and tumblr (for that time) and a circle of fairly popular artist friends on LiveJournal, DA and a few now defunct sites. It was a good space to share art.

Much about the current online atmosphere stresses me out, but I can deal with the social justice and gender idiots. The thought of my work and ideas being stolen however is very upsetting to me. Unfortunately this has happened in the past.

I don't believe thqt my ideas are ground breaking, but they are rooted squarely outside of pop culture and 'aesthetics'.

I have fairly niche (non fetish) inspirations, and of the most frequent compliments that I recieved when I posted art was the originality ans depth of the ideas. I'm also out of my 20s and that plays a part in things as well.

It may come down to either post, don't post, or post selectively but it sucks. Does anyone else experience this?

I wish that people just weren't so inclined to steal/trace from others. Idea/concept theft is a slippery slope but I still have concerns.

No. 1211278

I guess you can never escape it. Smaller artists are inspired by bigger artists. Someone is bound to “steal” your ideas if you ever make it big. Someone might trace your art. But it rarely happens, unless you’re one of those basic cute popular anime girl artists which the tracer is sure to make bank off of. You’ll be fine, don’t let your fears hold you from sharing your work. Even if someone steals anything, your account and the dates of those drawings will always be accessible

No. 1211503

Yeah and not just tracers or impersonators, but also accounts whose content is just reposting others' content without credit. Came across one such post earlier and the comments were saying the original artist doesn't like being reposted. But there were bright sparks defending it, like "the moment an artist puts art on social media, they're saying here's some art do what you want with it. If you dont want it reposted, don't post it somewhere it can happen." The entitlement.

I agree with >>1211278 that if you want to post something, go for it, but I'm also saying be aware of entitled people like this. Watermarks and signatures might help, though at the cost of detracting from the art.

I think he both traces and references his images! The process of stylisation makes it a little harder to tell. He doesn't have to credit his references because he makes his own! Smallwood honestly goes above and beyond with his references, the body is actually himself, as are some of the hands! Obviously he uses stock images too, however he's changed them enough to not be blatant copies of the original stock image. That's why 3D models are a really good development for commercial artists, there's no(or less) trademark issues with tracing 3D models, especially ones you've posed or sculpted yourself.

I actually feel that nowadays you don't need to draw fanart to get noticed. Either that or instagram isn't sure what I like because I separate my fan interests. I only get original art on my discovery page.

If you post on instagram just make reels of any thing it grabs a lot of attention. There are so many different types of reels you could film and most of the trends/sounds used are very very low effort. What comes to mind is "I made this pop and this pop and this pop". These types of reel audios allow you to post your own original work and get attention easily.

You could also just post your exercises and studies as separate posts and as reels with a trending audio as well. A lot of people eat it up. One of the anons said you could watch something which I think is a great idea just stop at a random frame and share the result as a compositional study/color study/whatever.

DITS challenges also work especially if it's made by an artist with a relative following, most of the time they share the art made.

You could also work on a specific thing that makes your art distinguishable eg: hatching, monochrome, theme etc.

I used to follow an artist that drew pretty girls, very common for instagram, but when stood out was the hatch work at first. She always experimented with different mediums and techniques while clearly knowing how to position her work and draw attention to it (i.e design). Next thing I know she's working on an indie game as a character designer.

Good luck!

Netorare, it's a hentai genre specifically for cheating/cuckold fetishes.

No. 1213399

Different anon but I just wanna add that Netorare is not just "cheating", it's kind of a fucked up hentai genre where we see things from the perspective of the protagonist (scrote viewer self-insert) in the role of the cuckold, while the woman he likes can cheat on him voluntarily, be raped or something in between. It doesn't need to be his girlfriend or wife who is "stolen", it can also be a childhood friend or even family member (so it sometimes overlaps with incest). It also overlaps with gyaru fetish a lot because lol gyarus are cheating sluts amirite. You'll see ugly bastards in this genre a lot, doing the cucking. NTR focuses on the feelings of sadness and jealousy the MC gets when the woman is taken by another guy. Sometimes he ends up getting off to it at the end while still being jealous and depressed, kek. It's fucking retarded. When the protagonist is the one who "steals" the woman from another guy, it's called Netori, but that one doesn't seem to be as popular as Netorare. And when the MC being cucked voluntarily it's Netorase.
Absolute loser coomers love NTR but it also makes other scrotes really mad so be careful with it if you decide to draw it.

No. 1213783

it’s not, artists who have tumblrs already have an established following on other platforms and if they don’t they’ve probably accumulated their reputation from years of being a tumblr user. twitter and instagram are way more profitable and easier to get into, still hard but it’s easier to manage and communicate with other people

More people are coming back to Tumblr so it wouldn't hurt to try. I recently saw a new user grow to 300 followers in just a month. I would also vouch Tumblr because the tagging system allows art to have a lifespan of more than 20 seconds unlike the other social medias rn.

I guess you can try Twitter or Insta but you have to also sell people on your personality on Twitter. Attention spans are rapidly decreasing so unless you're not posting everyday people are going to forget/become uninterested about you.

Tumblr is a good place to find niches/subcultures if you want to hone in on a particular market but Twitter/Insta have more users. Sorry for the blogpost but best of luck anon.

NTR isn't always fucked up, especially when it comes to guys/girls who like seeing their partners involved with other people, usually in sight of the person getting NTRd. I dint consternation it a fucked trope as it has real implications for couples with things like ED or asexuals who don't want to participate but want to be involved somehow if their partner isn't asexual.

I have a friend who does this. If you have a lot of followers you can make a good income from it, he has about 300k followers, and he told me he makes sure every month to check their requirements to make the max amount (this is stuff like going live, sharing reels, etc) Once you start doing it I guess instagram tells you exactly how many of each thing it wants you to do per month. iirc he told me he makes $600 a month just from going live. He wasn't doing reels much yet when we talked (this was like a year ago) so I'm not sure about that.
Semi related but he also posts videos of him making art to facebook and he told me if it gets decent views he'll make about $2k per post. But his entire life is marketing himself so don't expect to make these numbers unless you have legtimately impressive (to normies) or clickbait worthy art.

Aesthetic is way more important than fanart. You also don't have to be a fan of anything like a show or game, just draw things you like. There are big markets for lots of generic things like "cute animal art", "spooky things", "generic anime", and "pretty looking food".

No. 1216571

An art style that appeals to other artists, mainly because styles that appeal to the masses would feel mindnumbingly boring for me to draw. Plus seeing my favorite artists follow me back and like/rt my art feels more fulfilling than a thousand randos doing the same. In my experience though, styles that appeal to the “masses” and “artists” tend to go hand in hand. If you have the skill and an interesting style, normies will take notice eventually.

No. 1216648

Mass appeal art is the deliberate use of chibis or wobbly "RKGK" lines to fill out 20/30 days because the artist vaguely believes in the consume product meme.
Of course, artist sounds like autist so choice is more of a compulsion.

No. 1216811


It honestly depends on what you want to achieve.

For more visibility, I'd choose the former, but if you want to develop relationships with other artists, I'd probably go with the latter.

Like, obviously social media is rather fickle and nothing is 100% guaranteed, but the majority of you audience unless it's a niche is going to be normies. So I see the appeal of having the former for easier access to a larger audience. Other artists aren't the majority of people buying your merch or pledging to Patreon, it's mainly other non-artists. If you aren't appealing to them you'd HAVE to find a niche somewhere or you'll struggle a bit.

Personally love messy/overly actioned comics, but thats my preference. I like this type of art.

No. 1217429

Seriously speaking appealing to other artists isn't hard because it requires genuine skill but because artists tend to be unironic crabs that at the same time envy and hate everyone more talented than they are. They might recognize your skill and acknowledge that you produce quality work but they will never congratulate you for it and will attack you if given the chance. That's why so many artists have imposter syndrome and low self esteem and the "suffering artist" trope even exists, art as a field is based on constant self flagellation and judgmentalism.

As for the difference between them, masses want to see things that are familiar to them and don't challenge them, it's like you have to be a curbside pickup at a chain restaurant for them. So it's more about the portrayed subject matter and the style not being that offensive while with other artists you get more range. Personally I'd like neither because both of the options seem to be a wild goose chase.

I worked pretty hard to get better by doing speed paintings, figure sketches, muscle diagrams only to hear mostly crickets. I feel like I'm slowly reaching where I want to be and finally better than the rude users I met. All the good artists left so it's a giant circle jerk of mediocre artists.

samefag, as others have mentioned being attracted to young good looking males is healthy and natural for hetro/bisexual women, the issue with "traps and femboys" traps and femboys, is that they fetishize borderline transness. It’s all a fetish. They don’t actually want to transition, they like the idea of 1. Tricking men into thinking they’re attractive young women 2. Looking like young girls and having a dick 3. Being the center of attention in whatever space they take because their weird fetish has to be “validated” as a true identity.

Prior to the modern warfare. even soldiers had high standards to be dressed head to toe respectfully, it was the first and second world wars that changed global ideas about masculinity, as an example WW1 single handedly ended beards as a sign of masculinity in the west, cause it was mandatory for all soldiers to shave any facial hair


>When WWI-era soldiers returned to the United States, they appeared in newsreels and newspapers as well as their hometowns. They were all shaven to within stringent Army regulations — and America liked the new look. Facial hair would fall out of favor until the 1960s and, even then, it was mostly American counterculture that re-embraced the beard.

>Evans later changed his mind, and the reconstruction reflects his later idea of the figure as a "Priest-King"; he used the image on the cover of all volumes of his main publication on the Knossos excavations, despite the cost of gold-embossing the crown.[9] Evans' change of mind was perhaps largely because he had decided that the original painted wall with the fresco was part of a processional corridor in the palace

Anon, the hardest part of starting out is that your drawings aren't always going to look great. Your tastes and what you're interested in is always going to exceed your current skill level. The goal isn't just making a decent drawing, it's learning HOW to do it.

If you find yourself constantly in a rut, you should be examining all your prior drawings and figuring out which ones you prefer. Try to point out details that you find appealing and figure out why.

This will help you understand what your tastes are and teach you to go over what you're doing. Being able to point out why you liked something or why an element didn't work for your previous drawing will help you improve.

No. 1224082

What I love doing is duplicating the canvas and just drawing, getting whatever shape, and then taking textured brushes and just winging it.

I think the important thing to remember is that art is hard!! Every single pro artist has struggled and sucked.

Webtoons creators won't shut up about how shit their platform treats them but then think there are absolutely 0 alternatives if it means they need to do legwork to pull their own audience for their 500th sanitized villainess-loves-the-protag story. All the while webtoon chews creators up and spits them out if they fall behind or don't fit their cookie cutter mold.

Sites like these shitted up webcomics, now that it's a billion dollar industry people think they instantly need to make polished, marketable sterile work at a breakneck clip, when that's not at all how webcomics started.

I would recommend doing so. Even if it’s not to get followers or something, I think it can be useful to have your art archived separately from your personal social media.

No. 1226853


Vertical scrolling is the worst way to present a damn comic, the repetitive mechanical motion gets irritating and it ends up being a bunch of wasted space in between paneling. And unless the creator already made a page format alternative so that their comic wont just become vaporware, it's also stupid difficult to print and archive.

I doubt a site like this can go under but if it and every other scroll comic host did because it fell out of fashion or whatever, good luck with your lossy long files.

idk about this case in particular, but I've seen similar call-outs where the artist is implying they rejected their design for being crude (or something), but then turned around to make their own version of it.

Maybe your art wasn't their taste or didn't fit their brand but they liked the idea behind it.

Just don't care. An image is an image, if you made it you made it. There are people using downloaded stamp brushes for hands, so who cares what you use and how you achieve your results. It doesn't matter that much. You can overthink it and talk yourself down or you can focus on drawing what you like. I sometimes feel like I have impostor syndrome when I compare my numbers on social media to, in my opinion, more skilled artists that get less (most likely because they don't post as frequently or draw original work instead of fanart), but then I google impostor syndrome in artists and look at the shit art some of the people talking about experiencing it produce and think that I'm nowhere near that pathetic.

No. 1231242

You either need to spend less time and effort on your 20$ commissions or raise your prices and wait for more valuable customers. It's better to do one piece for 40$ instead of two for 20 each. If you don't depend on the money right now, you should spend some time honing your skills and work on growing your audience.

I’m in my late 30’s and you can’t escape it. Traditional mediums seem to be spared so far but illustration or digital art is not.

No. 1234228

NTA but from my experience people would come with tablets, or portfolios on pendrives if it's a case of some more official feedbacking event.

What the other anon said. I’ve been to groups where people have brought their tablets along with traditional media. You don’t have to bring prints if you don’t have them already.
To note- even if you don’t have a business yet (or plan to) having a few business cards with your name/handle socials and email is a great start so you can get in contact with others and it’s a step up instead of saying “check me out here” because people will forget.

No. 1235354

The most important thing you need is a revisions rule, like one revision only and charge $10 for each further one (or whatever is in your realm of acceptability). I don't do comms but revisions/changes are the main way commissioners waste artist's time and annoy them. If it's open-ended they will request 20 free revisions and the comm will never get done.
Also right to refuse service for any reason (actual reason being they seem like a creep or something)

Give yourself more time, put double the wait time you actually will take. Under-promise, over deliver. This also gives you wiggle room to be busy or sick without them complaining.

No. 1235372

Samefag, Also agree with anon above, you are giving a free sketch before payment? Payment up front, saves you from some timewasters, you can always refund if you run into any issues at the sketch stage.

Also keep communication as short and non personal as possible, from both sides, customer service is also a job and unless you include that in your prices you shouldn't do it (no humoring them talking about their lives, health problems or whatever, don't share that info with a customer either)
(Obviously don't include that in your rules but something to keep in mind, any buyer/seller interaction that gets too chatty or personal goes south, from my observation.)
Also: don't undercharge, again you avoid timewasters who want to boss around an artist for five bucks. Charge more and save yourself the bother.

Be very clear about cost per character, cost for background, it seems open ended here.
Include a list of things you will not draw to save time from those people asking.

Telling people how long your process takes is a terrible idea unless you want people hounding you about why their commission isn't done.

You're also setting yourself up for failure if something comes up and you have to delay a commission because you've given yourself no time.

Estimate how long you think it will take to deliver a piece maximum and tell the client triple that amount of time. Your timeline for a sketch, for example, should never be less than a week even if you know you can finish it sooner.

take out the amount of time you take to do stuff. clients don't need all that info. also a week? give yourself more time, anon. even if you can complete a commission in a week it's good to set the deadline for longer to give yourself breaks/something comes up. and do payment upfront before you start any of the process

No. 1236097

first thing that popped out to me is that a sketch and clean lineart takes you about the same amount of time to finish, don't offer paid sketches at all if you have to do the same amount of work for less pay.

Don't tell them your work speed, you can still get the commission done in a timely manner but don't put that expectation in their mind. Ask them if they have a deadline, but don't tell them how long you'll take.

For my commissions, I give them a messy sketch first and only offer changes to major things like a pose at that time only. If they like the sketch, I don't work on the final until payment is given. The only revisions I offer after a commission is finished is things like color (easy to change) I don't offer paid revisions at all, and commissioners are more specific about what they want because of this.

Important things to note:

-Always take payment upfront, even for sketches. If you're worried about feeling like you're ripping people off, at least take half before continuing with anything else. This will prevent you from getting screwed over if a client bails in the later stages.

-You don't need to explain every bit of your process in detail. Save that for the refund/copyright policy for your TOS. That's where you'll need it the most for your own protection. When it comes to your process, keep it simple.

-Clients really, REALLY don't need to know how you painstakingly take on a sketch. It not only leads to scenarios in which people will hound you like hell (like other anons mention), but it leaves you open to being taken advantage of.

You can easily write something like **"The turnaround for sketches is about ~2-3 days. Clean lines is ~3-5 days. Colored drawing takes the most amount of time of 4-7 days."** Done. If you want, also add a disclaimer saying that depending on your health/circumstances the commission could take longer, but that's it.

Stuff about WIPs being watermarked should just be a general statement if it's not already in your TOS. Other than that, your statement at the end about refunds is fine. Don't be afraid to give a refund if you don't want to deal with an annoying client.

I find it especially disgusting considering how mismanaged all of this was (not that it's uncommon for zines).

Let's be real, at some point if huge amounts of money are involved it is no longer a "passion project zine" it's a job with responsibilities. If you can't handle that you shouldn't be running an anthology (I'm calling it that because it is one).

People aren't going to care if your excuses are "well zines are built on trust!" Yeah, that excuse only works for teenagers doing a fan project for fun, not a grander anthology with merch, production costs, and the like. People aren't going to accept that when money is involved.

This isn't a case of some teenagers getting overzealous about a fan project. These are grown adults who should've had the capacity to understand that scams are abundant and that you shouldn't trust anyone with that much money, even if they have a history of running zines.

I'm just more baffled than anything else that no one suggested that having one person in charge of all the funds for your project wouldn't be a good idea? No contract was needed? At all? There's no way they could've gone this long not seeing anything suspicious with this.

No. 1238302

I also wonder whether the other mods knew more than they're admitting. I find it hard to believe anyone could be naive enough to be strung along for an entire year with just the shitty lies Teresa was coming up with. Maybe they were too spineless to confront her until it was too late.
From what I've read, one reason nobody brought up the idea of a contract was that they didn't expect to make as much money as they did before pre-orders. So what about after they realized a fuck ton of people wanted to buy this thing? The excuse I saw was that since Teresa was the head mod/person who first "started" the zine, it was as if she had more authority over the project, and they all just feebly deferred to her. Hindsight is 20/20 and all, but at the very least you'd think they would have confronted her way back in the fall or something. They let this go on way too long anyway that's for sure.

No. 1238435

Depends on the scale of the project and what you want for the zine, anon.

Digital-only zines are much more easier to set up as you only have to worry about formatting for a .PDF file. There are plenty of guides out there to make smaller books/zines thanks to them booming in popularity over the past few years. You can easily share these files via a Dropbox, custom website, private link, or even a Google Drive. It's not the most professional method, but if the formatting with the zine is good, most don't care how it's distributed, just that's it's accessible to those who participated.

When it comes to physical productions, zines were traditionally done by hand, but nowadays it's best to check your local printing shop for advice. Many are happy to help with projects like these and sometimes you get some interesting advice.

If all else fails, you can look up online general guides on where to post. But again, it depends on the scale of the project. If you're looking for accessibility, using social media for advertising is a good idea. If it's niche, just make sure people within your group can access it.

No. 1239255

Are you talking about handmade zines in the more traditional sense, or zines as in fanart books with other online artists? If you're talking about the latter, >>1238435 is helpful. For handprinted stuff, ask around if local bookstores/comic shops sell artist zines, a lot of them do.

No. 1239301

>No contract was needed?
God I keep seeing this Shit take and I swear people who bring this up as a solution have black/white monkey brains.

If they legitimize it more with a contract then it puts them in more jeopardy of being sued by the IP holders. Zine/doujin projects are only supposed to be printed in small quantities and not for profit. I feel bad for the mods that have to deal with the aftermath, but all of them are going to fuck up the fanart scene because of their huge retard behavior. Altus/Sega is already fucking anal about Persona 5 fanwork being sold, the fact this zine made almost 100k is going to make them feral.

I still think her art looks good, but as someone who was a fan of this artist’s work before she ‘blew up’ on twitter, I’m disappointed that she stopped drawing different poses/compositions/backgrounds in favor of floating heads with hair gimmicks.

The original Google doc mentioned they were trying to take legal action and couldn't because there was no legally-binding document. That's the main reason why people bring this up. Now, a contact wouldn't have 100% solved everything but at the very least there would've been something other than just screenshots of shady activity at best. If you're going to be handling that much money, there should be some proof of an agreement taking place. Even doujin circles have some sort of signed agreement for projects like these.

The zine is already copyright infringement as the characters don't even belong to them. However, I don't think this will mess up the fanart scene as companies are aware of these types of anthologies existing. They either DMCA them or just turn a blind eye to it. if anything, this isn't been the first zine to self-emplode like this. Just the most recent.

>People aren't going to care if your excuses are "well zines are built on trust!" Yeah, that excuse only works for teenagers doing a fan project for fun

But that's how fandom zines started, small groups of artists got together and made a book. Trust was essential and oftentimes guaranteed when it was just a small group of dedicated fans.

Now the fanzine space has morphed into some psuedo pop-up small business scene without any of the structure of traditional small business art shops. Zine projects were never supposed to be that deep or handling money into the 100k.

They aren't 1 for 1 anyway, so why does it matter? You have Disney animation legends who would use rotoscoping and still photos to trace or use as reference. You guys act like anything to help the artist is somehow 'cheating' when there is more to her designs than just a head layout?

No. 1240760


Oh, I agree.

That's exactly why this zine self-imploded to begin with. You simply can't expect that same there's no sense of trust/commitment with large amounts of money involved. It's an overall recipe for disaster that frankly people (and the mods) should've saw coming a mile away.

It's sad that zines WERE just small groups of friends/artist making passion projects, but nowadays, everyone wants to their #aesthetic brand to show online without any of the commitment or hard work involved. It seems like people expect every single zine now to be at the level of an huge anthology when it doesn't need to be.


It's for the fans. Many people will buy ANY fan works BECAUSE of a character they like. The art doesn't have to be god-tier or anything like that because people already have that established connection with the character from said media.

Don't get me wrong, quality definitely plays a part to some degree of how well merch does, but not always. If the character is especially popular, expect merch to sell well as long as it looks decent enough.

No. 1240762

an IRL friend of mine was roommates with this ree person and kept contact with them. i showed them this tweet and that ree just has the worst gambling addiction i have ever seen to this day, and apparently they stole all that zine money to max their Childe in Genshin (no idea who this dude is, idgaf about GI). They also planned to use said stolen money on takeout food.

The fun part is that apparently this has been going on since April. Meaning, the mods just seem incompetent as fuck. Neither me or my friend know what was going on behind the sheets (since we weren't in the zine) but just…it started in April. MONTHS ago.

Zine projects are just ridiculous nowadays. If you can't seem to be able to notice that there's something potentially fishy going on with your project's finances, PARTICULARLY after you've handed everything to A SINGLE PERSON, then you. Shouldn't be running any fucking project ever.

Wow. I guess I just got lucky with zines, since the few I've been in were well-managed with clear deadlines and transparency between mods and contributers, but I'm not surprised. So much of online creative spheres are now full of narcissistic assholes who care more about themselves and their image than making a good product or delivering on promises.

Off topic, but there was once I participated in a Christmas gift exchange with a few other artists and this one girl wouldn't shut up about how excited she was to receive "fanart" of her OC's. She missed the deadline for submission and made a half-assed sketch for the other artist, who'd done a fully rendered piece for her. Didn't even apologise for it, citing "muh depression" and "ableism" when the mods expressed their concern. Tell me how I saw it coming from a mile away kek.

It's kind of shame how even gift exchanges have been kind of tainted. I've been in a few that were genuinely fun to participate in and were clear about upholding deadlines/quality control. But now, so many people take advantage of giving someone a nicely done illustration to get free art without any of the time or effort. It's come to a point in which many gift exchanges have to clearly define what IS presentable because people will half-ass it just to get it done. You can easily tell who gave a shit making the artwork and who rushed it last minute.


There is totally an argument to be made about people abusing the hell out of free materials way too much (you see it all the time with certain media like webtoons). At the same time, you aren't getting a medal for making things more difficult for yourself, so you might as well use what you have to your advantage.
