His art seems weird like every woman has the body of widowmaker or mercy from overwatch. He draws all these fantasy women but they feel like nothing burger stuff. There's no meaningful interaction between the characters it's just "sexy elf standing, sitting, fighting, laying down in skin clad clothing" the lines on the torso also feel so excessive like they're all dehydrated or something, theres just no softness.

>study living masters that teach
If their content is free then give me some recs. I don't study his actual art per se, I just follow his tips. His videos about the science of studying are basically just 15 minutes of distilled advice that help learn basically anything and I found them useful when I started taking my art studies more seriously.
>marcs a shortcut artist at best.
I mean, yeah. That's kinda the point. Why spend money and hours when I could spend 10 minutes for free and still get some useful tips? This is ofc just in reference to his youtube content, people who spend money on his actual courses are another beast entirely.

No. 1361743

>If their content is free then give me some recs.
This is why people here aren't gonna make it. Vilppu is a great example of a master that's got free content all around the internet. He has paid courses as well. If you want a great instructional demo then sign up to New Masters Academy's 7 day free trial. It's the best resource online currently. Hell
they have content from Huston as well which is fantastic.
>I don't study his actual art per se, I just follow his tips. His videos about the science of studying are basically just 15 minutes of distilled advice that help learn basically anything and I found them useful when I started taking my art studies more seriously.
His advice about art tangent things generally isn't bad. His advice to practice less and study smarter is retarded. You need to practice more AND study smarter. Obviously if you end up getting something quicker you won't spend as much time trying to grasp something, but even masters spend time revisiting
fundamentals. That's what Marc fails to understand. His videos about anatomy, lighting, and construction are pretty shit. Decent advice mixed with preference at best.

>I mean, yeah. That's kinda the point.

His point is to provide short tips, some good some bad, to lure you into his "art school". His entire channel is one big marketing ploy.

>Why spend money and hours when I could spend 10 minutes for free and still get some useful tips?

Maybe read Loomis and you wouldn't need these tips.

Oh i see… I've taken several art classes where his books were actually mentioned to read so it's definitely not a bad resource but I think a lot of people have trouble learning art just from reading.

No. 1361892

The way I like to use those sorts of books is more as a reference like for me it's not a great replacement for just sitting down and drawing and doing practical application but if there's something in particular I'm struggling with I might go through a couple books and read about artists different approaches.

I thinking using the books as an end all be all is a mistake they're supplemental at best.

No. 1361894

I also think it's worth mentioning that there's not one artist where their approach is 100 percent the right way to do everything I think you just kind of have to pick and chose what you find useful. But I do think you may need basic fundamentals to get to that point.

Personally, I don’t think a person should trace an image, at all, not to break down the shapes because I think there will be less movement/the artist will become too reliant on those shapes and not figure it out theirselves by just looking at an image.

Does anyone know if you can turn off the base stabilization in CSP? I like to do cross hatching in traditional but that minimum stabilization is so cancer. I've read you can do it with lazy nezumi, but I have to pay for that or pirate it. Is there any other way?
If not, uhhh, shill me a program I guess.

No. 1362815

Not sure how to do it in CSP, there's probably a way to but ngl when I do use CSP I barely notice there's any sort of stabilisation so it may be a traditional to digital learning curve. But anyways, I know you can get fully 0 stabilisation on Paint Tool SAI 1 & 2, it's a lot less confusing than CSP too

Try going into settings, change the stabilizer to the slider option and there you’d be able to set it to zero.

She recently had to stop posting her art there because one or the retard mods told her that her art was discouraging younger, less talented members from posting their stuff. They assumed since her art was higher quality that she had a big following already and didn't need to take up space in a small discord server.

Legally speaking, it's not stealing, at least not in these cases you show. Picrel is a case where I'd imagine an argument is to be made considering how closely it reproduces all unique elements of Stalenhag's illustration, but in case of usual AI mergers there's just too many sources, that ultimately, whether we like it or not, create a completely new artwork. Now, why would anyone want to comission and pay for something they could make by themselves in a few attempts, that's another thing.

Not only are the image sources stolen but they're fed to an algorithm they didn't create. Code also falls under copyright usage and I doubt any of these hawkers created their own machine learning AI system but instead just typed a prompt (that someone else probably wrote too kek) in a system someone else created and decided to sell it.

Why go back to drawing from your head? Use references and apply what you've learned to these.

No. 1364485

I dont understand the whole "this method, that method" debate, if people stopped fighting about which method they use and focused on picking up a book and studying they would get better at drawing, the fundamentals are the same it doesnt matter who teaches them.

No. 1364505

Studying from reference is good, since you're using references I assume you have developed an eye for the compositions you like and know in your head what you want to do. Your issue is execution. To help with that:

1. Thumbnail. If you don't know what this means, it's to draw a small general plan and sketch of a composition. This should be small and should not take more than a couple minutes, they can often take less than a minute to do. Just enough that you can feel out the shapes, forms, and silhouettes. Do several until you make one you like. Starting on a blank full size page will make it more difficult to execute a solid composition, planning on a smaller scale will help.

2. Stop starting from the head. Start from the torso instead. And don't do a basic rectangle for the whole torso, make sure to define both the rib cage and the pelvis. This way you can attach the head and appendages more easily to create dynamic poses. It's more difficult to attach a dynamically posed body to a head. Starting from the head is what makes it so easy to make a pretty girl bust.

3. Start loose with a light hand. Draw big gestural strokes to start. Make sure to work the whole piece at once and not hyper focus on the details of one aspect. Have some restraint and prioritize the composition above all.

4. Continue to study from reference and collect images of compositions you like. There's nothing wrong with drawing from your head, I think it's a valuable skill to practice concurrently with reference studies. However, even when you're not studying, don't shy away from using a reference for specifically complex parts, like a hand pose for example. If you're worried about copyright you can learn to take your own photos of yourself for reference, there are also libraries of free to use reference images out there if you look.

I can’t be the only one who finds the whole hyper realistic lips and noses on black edits of very stylized so jarring. Especially the noses. It’s just so ugly, and then half the time none of these edit artists can color darker skin tones other than the multiply tool. I truly wonder if black creators with actual skill in drawing find it just as off putting.

>Venezuelan Bennet
I mean, the mix of Venezuelans and Germans have existed for a long time, but come on, that person just looked for an obscure latam country to slap on a shitty edit.
I get you, these edits are kind of shitty most of the times, specially because of how the colors just clash with each other, it's like all of them got this specific color palette that they use and never try to go for other skin tones, which at least the desi editor tries to play around with.
I don't mind these edits sometimes, they can be cute when the editors do different manga panels because then there's no color clashing and the lips and nose aren't too exaggerated.

here's the thing I don't get about all these race specific autists who demand such and such ethnic group be drawn a certain way, unless an art style is trying to be hyper realistic most 2d drawn characters don't look like actual human beings, especially characters in anime whose skull shape is more closer to something like a cat, but we suspend our disbelief and can accept that the characters being shown in screen are human beings, like picrel can be conveyed as a black person without having to draw him with big lips and detailed racial characteristics

It certainly is good, but it's all just a mash-up of existing good art.

Learn the fundamentals from anywhere you can so that you can teach yourself without being reliant on anyone else, dead or alive.

This is why a lot of black artists I've seen don't participate: if you don't draw black characters, like if you draw animals or any fantasy characters, it excludes you without explicitly saying so.

It's when your line art bumps up against one another and it jumbles the composition.
Like if you had a person standing in the foreground and a line for their hair is the exact same line that leads into the edge of a window behind them. It messes with the flow.

No. 1367167

tangent lines are when the lines of a character interact with the lines in the background. they can make the art confusing to look at because you dont know where one thing starts and one thing ends

AYRT ok so does this only have to do with separate objects in the foreground and background? I saw it mentioned while doing lineart and I seriously do not know how to avoid it. I hate lineart enough as is but adding another rule i need to abide by just makes me more nervous and I'm not entirely sure whether I am doing it or not?

No. 1367353


Not necessarily. You just have to develop an eye for it. To do that, you need to break up your elements in a scene, making sure that there's no continuous line that may confuse the eye.
It's a lot like reading a run-on sentence with no punctuation. The more examples you see of tangents, the more you'll be able to catch them in your own work. Just be patient with yourself and don't obsess over it. It still happens with professionals.

No. 1367358

Samefag yet again because I'm feeling generous! This is where visual hierarchy and line weight comes into play. Work from big to small shapes, thumbnail out your work. You can avoid a lot of tangent lines if you break elements up in the sketch phase. I hate line art too but this makes it bearable. Hope this helps.

Do you really think people will buy shit that was created by a push of a button? I know I wouldn't. The "AI overthrowing traditional art" is a techbro wet dream that will never come true. There are already multiple similar attempts at trying to overthrow an artisan craft and it always ends up the same, a cheap novelty that wears off fast. The main clientele for AI art are the people who just want to scroll and consoom pretty pictures on their smartphones all day, not companies who want a strict control over their graphical assets, full legal custody over them and a group of people to evaluate them. I could absolutely not imagine a graphic artist just being replaced by someone inputting prompts in an AI algorithm via trial and error to get a piece stitched together from someone else's drawings, that sounds idiotic.

>pic related
Why are you so angry bro? I'm still getting money by "playing with my pencils". I might fuck around and get my pencil to make me even richer. I did not know all this time while I was drawing I had every incel permabeg in a chokehold.
I delete them. I don't know why, but I'm more inclined to do so if they were older/non public pieces. I don't recommend deleting commission files ever but that's just me.

Gonna vent. I don't participate in any of them, but all the -tober events and prompts that start this month are so annoying.

It's made this season so fucking exhausting and I dread it every time because it's unavoidable. I blame inktober for spreading such a shitty trend. Nobody has to do these "challenges" of course. It's just so annoying to me that artists feel obligated to participate in something in hopes of getting a crumb of attention. It's so played out and oversaturated.

No. 1370772

I like those challenges because they help me to be constant and I always try to think about something I need to improve on before starting so I get something out of it (for example, this year I'm drawing simple backgrounds/scenery). The little clout gets me going all month and it's probably the time I improve the most because the rest of the year I'm too lazy to draw more than once a week lmao.

I stopped watching her videos and had YouTube stop recommending her to me because none of the videos she makes are really all that useful or new information.

All she did was wiggle her way into the 'art business advice' niche and stayed there.

If she drew or painted something more than generic illustrator's slop there'd be more substance to the 'advice' vids she makes…

the actuality of being on the internet is that you have to block, mute and ignore negative comments. It does no good to really bring attention to them.

on the other side, I do enjoy hearing creators talk about it because in a way it does remind me that just because it is to be expected doesn't mean it should be considered acceptable. Helps keep my own self in check

No. 1374270

Same. I first found her videos because yt recommended them and I thought the thumbnails were pleasing to look at. Going through her videos I realized it's basic advice and she technically wasn't making money with her art, rather the business advice she was giving. I wanted to investigate further and her art and the only thing she has on her store are templates (which i frankly think are overpriced). I also got similar vibes when watching her videos so you're not alone anon.

Regardless of my biases, the comments appear to be one off rude comments that I honestly never encountered when I watched her videos. I think if you're a creator online, especially on youtube, you have to expect these kinds of comments every now and then unfortunately. No matter how you present yourself, someone is always gonna throw some rude/mean comment for no reason other than just because. It's the internet.

Gonna put my tinfoil here: mabgraves spends the whole year working on her drawlloween pieces and then pretends she's doing them daily while most eyes are on her page. She's basically inactive for the rest of the year yet somehow manages to make multiple pieces a day during drawlloween, things that would be logistically impossible to complete in a day like her needlefelted hedgehog with apple ornaments today.
Or the bones headpiece, her story about conveniently finding the bones she needed on a morning walk, somehow preparing/cleaning them sufficiently to work with in a few hours, and taking the photos, and making something for her miniature museum on the same day.
All this stuff takes longer than is physically possible in a day. It's smart advertising so I don't blame her but as an artist who does related crafts, it's literally not possible to complete things in the speed she is posting she is. I think the yupo drawings or paintings may be genuinely daily work since that is possible, but the larger or more complex pieces, like the full colour illustration with a bunch of cats in different poses, the needlefelted hedgehog, the bones headpiece, they all take longer even if you're really fast.
There's also been a miniature house from a ghibli movie, a furry werewolf doll, three full colour lake monster paintings already printed/prepared for pennants, and a painting and drawing, both of which had a timelapse unlike the above more complex projects which just appeared. Plus a couple of redraws of kids drawings which are obviously new.

I don’t follow her but I found out a few years ago a similar artist already did all her work before the prompt list was out. I was a bit upset but seeing that the list was out two months before the official event it made more sense how some artist seemingly create a finished product in a day. To other artists it’s quite discouraging but once I found that out, I felt relieved. A lot of artist will content batch but if you’re not aware I can see how it would put off artists not wanting to participate because they don’t feel like they can keep up. The weekly prompts are what I like better though they don’t seem as popular.

No. 1374641

That's interesting to know, so it's probably a common thing a lot of artists do during October drawing tag time. Mab has actually said in interview she preprepares Instagram posts along several themes, though she hasn't admitted to these ones being preprepared and is commited to the bit. It's smart but also discouraging I bet, if a new artist is looking at this and thinking it's actually possible to do.

It’s so distracting when a artist who does detailed photo bashing like this and doesn’t blend it into the background. I’ve noticed that in some of their posts, otherwise it’s really good, the only thing that saves it from being glaringly distracting is that they’re skilled in composition and that’s what makes it less but the difference it has in some of their paintings throws me off.

Even now, I think she's boring as hell and I don't understand why someone would want a thread on her when the most she does is make a cringy thumbnail/cringe art that doesn't garner much more reaction than "wow that's stupid".

Cringe, but I'm mostly so over the complaints of 'whitewashing' when the character doesn't look white in the least, including fanart of a real person. Someone's interpretation doesn't equal racism when it's obvious that their style and their color ranges differ in tone, but for their style, the tone fits for the race.

No. 1378835

..I don't even know if this is even on topic with art anymore, but you might as well also be saying that women in their 50s shouldn't have sex for the same reason of 'dusty eggs'. In general, both sexes, are attracted to the ages 20s-30s. It's not a secret, it's not just men. Some of the AI that exists right now, can't get close to real CP. I don't considering drawn/generated art as CP and it needs to not be labeled that because it's absolutely confusing and even the FBI has said to stop reporting drawings as it wasters down real CP.

I don't see someone going through the effort of taking a photo of a kids face and superimposing it onto an adult's body, regardless of how under-developed the woman is, and using that to create fake CP. Also, fake CP. Do some of you anons not realize that >>1378350 an adult with a face of a kid isn't going to cause any legal trouble to begin with? You can't criminalize someone getting off to adults just because of the face. If that were the case, then you would have a lot of Instagram models and OF models who use face tracking FaceTune type apps and the like, be criminalized for dishing out CP.

There are SO many loopholes to this radfem anti-AI manifesto. Also the fact that she basically says adult women are strapping men down to be groomed to become pedophiles and that it gets to a point where because adult women are doing this, that there is no space for CP and violence in porn. Not to mention completely disregarding male gender in both child and adult format being sexualized. It makes no sense and CP race related porn and hentai is the number one porn searches, not fake 'daddy/daughter' and 'incest'. A Google search could have told you that.

Legally, nothing is being broken though, even if someone is using NovelAi and using the WaifuDiffusion to creates lolicon. it uses places like Danbooru and stuff. There's actual CP on pixiv that people just throw bevel filters over and post those. AI generate CP doesn't exist to this conspiracy level the way anons think it is because real CP, as you can see from the raids we get from scrotes on LC, is accessible. Doesn't make it right or okay, but they won't go through all these extra steps and then if the extra steps involves altering an adult, that's not CP in the least.

Also, you're wrong on the AI art thing, at least re: superimposing faces. Examples can inadvertently be found very easily, and that's why all this shit is dodgy. I'm undecided on what stance to take on the matter of AI art in general (I support it as a creative tool, but am wary of the bad things it could be used for), but that radfem post is not the least bit as infeasible as we'd all like it to be.

I'm kind of confused right now so I came to your aid.
Some weeks ago a client came telling me they wanted some drawings of 20 different characters, all in individual canvases.
I started doing one, he paid for one, no problemo so far. When I was working on drawing number 6 dude tells me that it's actually for a videogame he's making. I felt like I was being used like a retard (which I am) so I instantly said to him that commercial use must be paid for each drawing, the ones that I've made and the future ones.
He told me that it was alright and proceeded to give me the next reference, he paid and I told him he could paid the commercial rights once I'm done with all of the drawings.
I proceed to finish the drawing he requested, he told me that he liked it so I naturally waited for him to send me the next reference but nothing. I wait three days and send him a reminder in case if he still wants the remaining drawings and he tells me that he forgot to reply, so I wait for the rest of the message but again, nothing. And that was like four days ago.
Should I send a reminder again or let it go? it's a really indie project so he's probably not making and income from my drawings but still lol

No. 1378950

if he paid for all the drawings you did, there's no problem here. if he wants to drop the project that's his business. don't do any other work for him until he replies.

in the future, you should definitely ask clients what the project is/sign a contract if they're asking for multiple drawings.

No. 1379013

I guess you are right, when I saw so many characters I thought it was for some dnd campaign or something. Still, before I start any commission I make the person read my tos which I guess he did, and decided to ignore the part where I state that commissions for commercial usage need to be addressed beforehand. Maybe he felt bad after some drawings and told me it was for a game thinking I would shrug it off and when I didn't he stopped replying. OR maybe I'm making up a whole story

No. 1379147

ntayrt but when it comes to large scale projects I wouldn't hesitate to whip out a contract. TOS is cool and all but that persons proved that not everyone is going to either fully read it or abide by that. Contracts are neat tho bc you can put clauses in them that state specific things like how many free revisions a client can get before you start charging them. Plus with a signed contract you cant have asshole clients claim that they didn't know something because you'll have proof that they acknowledge your terms, before you even start a single sketch. It's more so for your safety as an artist so that you don't get screwed out of your time, money, and work.
Other than that, if they've already paid for the work you've done and decide to ghost you now, let them. It's not your job to chase after a client. But it does seem kind of fishy they've dropped it. My immediate fear is they've contacted another artist and are using the piece you've made as example art so they can complete their project but at a possibly cheaper price.

ugh just spent like my only hour of free time today reporting actual CP on pixiv. There are a lot of users who are straight up filtering or tracing real child sexual abuse photos on there and they get like 20,000 likes and are somehow still up. And that's not even counting the photorealistic 3d models of small children being abused from 700 angles. Pixiv needs to get this fucking under control.

Yeah, you don't think these people will be able to access a massive part of the web to create these? Thats why it's all open source so people can flag this stuff. It takes things from pintrest and that's a massive harbored for CP and not just drawn lolicon CP I mean. It depends on the AI you are using, but just like how people are able to use pintrest to host CP in their galleries under the guise of other forms of art or boards, people will do that with anything they can get their hands on as long as it can host real versions of things. Thats why this idea that conflicting drawn lolicon to real CP is such a fucking issue. We need to stop focusing on the drawn aspect and a small niche who like kids like lolicon. General pedos don't give a fuck about proxy and care about the IRL kids only.

The same way I mentioned how people put bevel filters over real CP and post it to pixiv and because it's edited, it looks like it's 'drawn' when it's not.

Literally just like this anons says, it's sucks to go to these art sites and all you see if real CP shit everywhere under these edited filters to pass off as 'art' when it's obviously not.

Everybody loves sketchbooks, but honestly I hate them because of their small size and the binding rubs me the wrong way. I prefer printer paper cause it's cheap as fuck and honestly I don't care about the quality of the paper cause you can draw on anything with a pencil. If I have a particularly good sketch, I just put it away in a folder and I can easily throw away shit I don't like. Scanning it is easier too. Am I weird or what?

I've always wanted to be part of a fandom zine but I never get accepted even though my art is decent, which I always assume is fair because many people are better so obviously they'd get picked before me.

People probably just take in friends and friends of friends, don't get discouraged! Have you looked into your local zine scene? Less likely to be as autistic as some online only ones.

You can start with charity or free zines to pad your "resume" for future applications, those are easier to get into. I think zine mods like to see proof that you've delivered on past projects. But I also had the same experience with applying to for-profit zines and being rejected every time, then seeing people with kinda poor skills that were accepted. Like other anon said, it's not a reflection of you or your abilities, it's often because they pick their friends or people with more followers to get the zine more exposure. Sometimes they simply get a ton of applicants and have to make tough choices. The other thing could be if your portfolio doesn't have many pieces with the completion level that they're looking for (e.g. full pieces with backgrounds instead of just character portraits, even if those are really good). That was another reason that motivated me to do some free zines, to have more full-bg pieces in my portfolio. But I got super burnt out from it and now would only do a zine if there was guaranteed pay kek. Good luck nonna!

I immediately felt like she's very obviously using gross racial hentai conventions. I don't feel like I'm reaching and I can't be the only one that finds this pornified shit gross.

It's not because it's purple, obviously it's a monster.

Given that it's a succubus I think having her look sexualised seems fine and I don't see how it feels racialized at all.

I don't watch her anymore but her designs have always seemed fine to me but I'm shocked to see her do something like this. Her previous succubus was risque at best but still cute.

NTA but a lot of media features slavery, especially if it's set in the past or in a fantasy world, and no one complains about that (the vast majority of those examples do not present it as something good, quite the opposite). I really don't see the problem here unless the slavery aspect of this AU is fetishized or appeals to pedos or something like that. It's like saying you can never write about rape or abuse in fiction because there are real people who are raped and abused; as long as it's not written in a fetishistic way I don't think there's anything wrong with it.

Their twitter and tumblr username is kaeirou. But most of their artwork is gone.

Honestly sick of the AI talk.

But it also does make me want to stop uploading publicly for a bit. Not because I'm afraid of AI, but because I'm sick of the general disrespect towards artists.i know I'm in the minority when I say this because artists have mouths to feed and not uploading/being harder to find isn't going to pay the bills. I just wished we didn't bend over so easily and submit our work to these social media sites everyone seems so desperate to be dependent on now.

Lol, these types are competition, and a threat to no one. Lots of followers doesnt equal good work, or an art related job, especially now with the industry getting gutted.

Twitter is a hellhole. Tumblr speaks for itself. DeviantArt is full of fetish stuff. Most people's art sucks. People don't create interesting stories, they just have a bunch of OCs with fancy pronouns and nothing more to them. No one's interested in anyone else's art (and who can blame them, most stuff is extremely generic and boring). Every online community I've been a part of was eventually taken over by zoomers and their ugly OC art. Every creator I used to follow stopped drawing or is not online anymore because they felt like there was no space for them to just enjoy making art and stories anymore.

My fav part is how they are preaching to the choir. Every random person on the street either gets it now or is never going to listen.
If they truly wanted to change anything they’d go after corporations and the leaders of those corporations. Why don’t they trash corporate property or logos, deface their advertisements?
My cynical take is that they’re just trying to drum up funding for their activist organization that’s just laundering it or pocketing it. This type of shit doesn’t cause change, it just destroys history and culture which is probably also a bonus to these idiots.
Why don’t they go and plant a communal garden in a golf course? Why don’t they plant trees on corporate land? I’m not even a fucking activist and I can think of better more impactful activities!

These actions are not supposed to bring the change, they're supposed to start a discussion and get at least a little bit of the spotlight on the subject matter. Anything lesser than that or targeting something everyone doesnt care for anyway (like advertisements) goes by with minimal or zero coverage.

Kayozia, a "notable" arcylic charm maker for 5 years has gone on a full meltdown because the hole she dug for herself and marketing to an obviously SWFW market and pandering to things that attract children dislike her "new direction" in making a slightly nsfw boob mouse pad.

What possesses an artist to get so in their heads and think they can 180 their career because it was stressing them out? Nobody was forcing them, especially concidering she had a very devoted fan base.
She admited to her 26.6k follower base on public stories that she has bipolar and is full manic rn and went on to say she tried to grt herself hospitalized last year simply because she felt like she could make anything other than her charms.

Just sounds like fans or old buyers throwing fits because they want the artist to remain uwu wholesome their own creative life and never grow up, and if she makes cute boob shit, good, I how the people who still follow will buy it.

I can also understand with making a public post about people complaining about the direction a shop is going. Not a meltdown, but addressing it. There could be others who feel the same way but aren't vocal or didn't unfiltered who might want clarity. Some just don't want to see advertised boob charms on their TL.

In general, both seem dumb, but addressing it is good. Just.. not the meltdown and fans neeeeeed to stop harassing artists for drawing NSFW or other things they don't normally do like horror or a horror artist drawing uwu stuff.

I've suggested this and someone countered with "scrotes like that, too. There's no winning." From experience, scrotes like literally any kind of female attention.

Ryona-loving dudes are always like this. They KNOW they're disgusting for liking this and try to sound like a machoor intellekshual about their tastes when they can't confront their violent tendencies towards women (or whine about the law not letting them get away with it completely).

Sharing art online really isn't fun anymore if the only place you post is social media though. You really do just have to do it because you yourself think it's fun and share with people you trust. That's why so many artists break off into smaller private discord servers and spaces inaccessible to the general public. Discord sucks for a lot of reasons but that really is one of the solutions.

Most people who buy in to NSFW content probably has subbed to a free or paid OF account of some thot at some point, so probably a good chunk of people seeing my work would have an existing account, but I was thinking I could make it free and charge for alts through there for like.. $5 or something since it's basically a paid Twitter [which is why Twitter started implementing the whole tip functions to compete].

I'm a woman and I don't even know wtf board that even is or which fucking site, anon. Legally, what AI creates can't really be taken to court because it's not real, even if real kids from pintrest, like I mentioned, are being used because the software still applies 3D, unreal, effects. If this were something illegal, 3D models, a lot of them, wouldv'e had guys arrested already. You don't need to call people scrotes just because they are talking about the legality of this shit. You just sound stupid, accusatory, and literally can't see the difference in what the courts would give a fuck about or what laws exist where these unfortunately can't be dealt with. Unless new laws pass where these AIs aren't allowed to feed real people at all, nothing will change. For these scrotes, it's barely passing material, but enough for them, but you have people with photos of feet of just kids and they get off to that on pintrest. No one is pretending the issue doesn't exist and I feel sick knowing they can access outside IRL photos for these, but until the programs can also only use real photos and not churn out mashed 2D and 3D because of it, it won't be considered CSEM. It'll just boil down to 'creeps use 3D tech to make CP that's not CP, but almost CP'.

I don't know what answer you want, anon. the outrage over it is understandable, but discussing why these losers won't get in trouble, is also important. It leads to how laws can figure out HOW to get them in trouble.

The LAW wouldn't step in unless it was because illustrated art, even AI, is under freedom of speech. If it was a single child being used, straight up photos, no mish-mash of other kids to create anything and it wasn't through an AI, then it could probably be taken as real CP by the FBI. I know you want to talk hypotheticals, but I'm not doing that. I'm talking about how it can be taken legally now, not in the future of what could be. I'm as outraged about this as well, but I'm also not on some other plain of reality like you.

You didn't, I did. It's ghoulish to say that photobashed CP is "art". I don't care if you're trying to blackpill me. And you're probably not, since you're most likely a concern-trolling moid.

Photorealistic 3dcg/illustrated child porn is already illegal, why are you so hellbent on saying ai CP collages (using real images of real children) are "art" and will be protected by the law?

You're on another plane of fucking reality because you started out finger wagging about us insane radfems fretting over AI CP because it "doesn't exist". Well it does and you're backtracking because you're retarded and embarrassing.

Not in all countries though. This isn't an all or nothing thing, anon.

It's art because of the way it's gone through a program, anon. By proxy it's called art even when it's not art. Same way artists doing this with SFW stuff like trees and cars are still calling their stuff art. Unfortunately, that's the description on top of saying it's CP.

This is going to be a blogpost.
w/o powerleveling too much, I came from a state in the USA that used to be #1 for femicide. It's still in the top #5, and I think that's only from an influx of people out-of-state padding out the numbers.

I learned from a very early age, from my mother and female relatives, to put myself and women first, to tolerate nothing from men, and to be wary of handmaidens. Men in my state would get minor sentences on crimes of passion for killing out of jealousy. I have a scrote from my dad's(who I am in the process of dealing with for mistreating my stepmother) side who is free because he shot my friend's mom when she spotted him with another man in the car. Other man turned out to be her brother.

Only conflict I ever had was when I'd have handmaidens for teachers who would tell me how I should behave, or friends who had handmaiden/NLOG tendencies who'd say things to put me in my place. Fortunately, shit got fixed once I got home. It was either due to my relatives talking about shit people got into, which stemmed from a men; or going online, talking to males, and realizing their vapid, disposable nature.

The combination of my matron's devotion to a sexist religion confused me, but only told me that women are better for shaping religion and culture, not men.

I don't hate men because it takes effort. I find them useless unless they answer to a woman who isn't an NLOG.

What I like to draw: I like drawing cool, sexy women and cute, docile men who have strong bodies (not grotesquely buff, but defined and fit) and pretty faces.
If I'm drawing a picture of a woman, it's usually her being comfy, in her element, maybe with pinup elements or soft nudity.

If I'm drawing a picture of a man, I draw him to look like a treat for a woman. He's either the viewer's accessory, or the accessory of the woman in the picture. I also want to draw more things like >>1386698 with the implication that the man is up against an actual proper opponent and putting his naturally violent tendencies to good use. Maybe he's going fisticuffs with a monster or just won a 1 vs 10 fight against a bunch of lesser scrotes.

I like drawing yuri and het. I may draw yaoi for a friend, but I'd prefer for a woman to be in that mix. My het always has femdom elements, even if it's just by posturing, or the stares.

My reverse ryona will have the woman looking cool. Maybe she's frilly. Maybe she's sexy. Maybe she's slick-haired GNC type who's shy until it's time to catch hands. Maybe she's a wild woman who embraces fashion that just so happens to scare men. And the man? Who knows wtf he got into. He looks good because all of the ugly and useless men are already dead in my world. He's being beaten because he needs to be reminded of why he's allowed to exist.

You need outlets, nonna. Even if no one ever sees the pictures you draw (although the space needs more of them; I'm in the process of trying to go public), you need that outlet. Running away from your shadow isn't healthy, especially when you have a creative outlet for it. Your muse will love it.

sorry for bad screenshots and collage, graphic art is my passion
I was browsing old LJ communities as one do and saw this very short discussion about social media platforms from 2012.
These comments are over 10 years old but I still agree with them.
I think it's really odd that there never really came a community-geared social media site after LJ. There is Reddit, which has the perfect layout for discussion but most fandom oriented subs seems more interested in reposting art, and there is dreamwidth, which no one uses.
It just seems like the general public has no interests in community based social media anymore and would rather just get things as fast as possible before the go over to the next thing. I think the third comment is spot on when they call it short-form content distribution.
Sorry if this got odd topic but my point is that this may have affected the online art community too

Hey, not as based as you.
I love horror, but I felt this sentiment, too. Also, you're right. With some exceptions, women tend to reduce men to something like pets or accessories in most cases. Men go into full hate mode and act persecuted if someone calls it out.
Your post reminded me of someone I knew. Great artist and loved seeing guys in desperate situations short of full-blown guro. However, she went into full handmaiden mode if you joked about men, even if it was just some comment like 'yeah they're terrible drivers.' Came to the conclusion that she was addicted to male approval and was ashamed of her tastes. That's why it's good to have self-awareness about yourself when you take on these topics as an artist.
she asked, I answered. cringe all you like, but learn when to sage
> please also draw "real" looking mid moids getting horribly mutilated and beaten

I miss these days. They're right. The art communities on LJ were better than what we have now, and LJ still wasn't good for art aside from webcomics.
I really want to advocate for artists to consider learning how to make their own websites as an outlet. Static hosting is cheap, if not free. If they must use social media, use it to post updates and drive traffic.
>There is Reddit, which has the perfect layout for discussion but most fandom oriented subs seems more interested in reposting art
This is something I've noticed throughout several social media platforms that's often lamented over and joked about: the reposter getting more praise than the original creator. It could work so well for free advertising if the reposters would bother citing the source. Some do, many won't. Reverse image search works, but I feel like the unwillingness to put in the extra effort to at least drop the account name makes it worse.

TBH I had some really good teachers who were - technically, portfolio-wise - not as good as their students but were REALLY good at giving feedback and promoting individual development without pressuring their own aesthetics on anyone; so it's always worth hearing someone out first

No. 1387997

Teachers are able to see the students work and what they need to develop their skills, and being a good teacher is a skill on its own that they learn from studying and over years of working with art students. A youtuber has little to no connection to any other artists workflow and can't give you personalized advice. So if a youtubers art is bad they probably simply have nothing to offer you in terms of art advice.

No. 1388004

>what kind of features do you think are useful in a personal art website

I personally want to know the date a piece was made and a title or description or reason for creation. Too many portfolios are just an image dump without any accompanying text, and it just makes your gallery look like a scroll through google images, instead of a personal showcase.

They project so much onto women, it's hysterical. I saw metric fucktons of that when I used to be a hentai artist.

I really wish the pre-social media gallery websites were still around to provide a wider variety of examples, though there are some lying around.
The "less is more" approach for a website that mainly serves as your art gallery holds true. You want to make sure your layout compliments your art. I've seen it to where people would even style pages around a piece, but this is really only a good idea if you're also trying to showcase your markup and web design skills, or it's just fun for you to do so. I've seen these work well in the past, but they worked better for illustrators who were also multimedia artists, or people pushing a character brand.
Like >>1388004 said, having some text that talks about your art is important, at least with title and date. An "About Me" page is a good idea if you don't have one that talks about your process or chosen tools, whatever you want to share.

Nonnie I don't know if you know this about the artist whose work you posted but she has a nsfw twitter full of trans shit and specifically of the character you posted drawn as trans to be put through dubcon/noncon-looking shit, breeding kink, and in general when she draws characters as trans it's to put them through sexualized violence of some kind (sometimes with a vague racist undertone of "uwu soft white upperclass woman trans man being raped engaging in rough sex with the tough savage indigenous men" (character is from a game with indigenous characters and that doesn't treat the racism they're put through in-game particularly well)).

sage for samefagging but even if she rationalizes it as "oh it's not dubcon/noncon/racist I'm just inspired by tacky erotica" (even though tacky erotica is ripe with rape/sexualized violence/racism because of course it is) people have eyes we can see how they look (I'm unfortunate enough to orbit the fandoms she's in and I see her nsfw art too much for my liking).

Also most drawings of this character (Pathologic's Bachelor Dankovsky) being beaten/bloodied/bruised come from TiF coomers who see him as trans and put him through sexual/sexualized violence in ways they wouldn't the characters they headcanon as male. Chances are it's just bad.

I don't think anything is inherently wrong with creating serial killer OCs (Yoshikage Kira and Johan Liebert can be considered as such and imho are interesting characters). However, I think there is an issue when you heavily base either their appearances or specific characteristics on very real serial killers. Hell, I remember seeing a lot of edge killer OCs back on deviantart but they were usually just edgy kids making an anime girl hold a knife splattered with blood.

I recently found a young artist on youtube whose art style I liked but noticed they have OCs that are Very reminiscent of Dahmer and potentially Bundy. I dug a little deeper at their older art and they also made fanart for the film My Friend Dahmer. You can say it's movie fanart all you want kid but we know. They even stated that somebody commented on their art asking if art of their OCs were shipping art of Bundy and Dahmer and they were like "guys i would never draw ship art of that".

There's a certain group that I had in mind when I wrote this, but I have no idea where to start when it comes to describing them. It's not simply "people who like classic art," but a particular group who embrace classical art as "the only real art" because they see it as a bastion against the rest of the world in terms of culture. While the rest of us think the "protest" is ridiculous, they likely gobbled it up as a genuine attack on culture.

The tl;dr of my tinfoil is that we all know this is staged, but it's done to validate the opinions of this particular group and not change minds.
I've just gone with the theory that anyone doing these kinds of protests for any amount of money aren't exactly bright, either.

The majority of old pixel art was made either by scanning the art onto the computer (which, at the time, had limited pallets and tons of dithering), or created on the machine itself. The digitized art still had to be cleaned up.

If you want to do PC98 style, you can create a large image at a low resolution, scale it down using hard edges, and use modern pixel art techniques to push it further and touch it up. That's why I asked which software >>1390496 used so that I could break it down or suggest tools that I have had experience with.

While it is in a different family, this is a valid technique for pixel art, as pixel placement and limited color pallets still make the picture look stronger. There are also a number of pixel artists who use digitizing as a starting point to emulate old win98/pc98 looks.

How curious! I wonder why…). She doesn't talk about it overtly outside of specific posts and mostly her nsfw account (where most of her posts are about the one she headcanons as trans being put through what >>1389371 and >>1389382 describe) but once you know it, it feels very pointed.

it's because early moe characters and the bishoujo aesthetic is directly inspired from shoujo. Male artists noticed how cute and detailed women drew girls and decided to do the same when making dating Sims/harem/anything that involves a large female cast targeted men.

Honestly, not a huge fan of how big the eyes were in this older anime style. The one thing about modern anime styles I like it that the eyes are more proportionate to the face.

Fucking same. I love the OG game (100%'d on steam) and I know there's no way all these people even bothered to play the either game because it's not an easy one to get into (as the creators intended). Even Pathologic 2 is difficult since they had to patch in an easier mode since people were complaining about the difficulty. These people just wanted a quick way to be able to justify drawing characters fucking each other. I don't mind shipping personally but I think there are a lot more interesting things going on in that game that people don't bother even addressing.

No. 1393432

>and I know there's no way all these people even bothered to play the either game […]
I don't know if that has been my experience because a number of people who do draw coomer shit of it did play it, a number of them even did finish it, and are very proud of that, but they're just too coombrained and porn-rotted to indulge in fanart without making it a porn-addict's fever dream. Even if they've played the games, their yaoi(and I mean it with no offense to normal fujos)-riddled brains are completely incapable of seeing the male characters as they are and instead box them into stereotypically "uke" and stereotypically "seme" roles and then push the degeneracy further, making the smallest/less """tough""" male character get all sorts of weird shit like >>1391992 >>1391918 and >>1389371 mention regardless of how he really is in canon.
TLDR from what I've seen a number of the coombrains of the fandom (including artist of the post that started this whole discussion, I'm so sorry nonna I assume you didn't expect to open that Pandora's box…) actually having played the game but The Coom(tm) corrupts them. More lethal illness than the Plague itself!

this is so embarrassing. Modern computers can display more colours and details than the computers from the 90's. Yet the modern art looks so flat lifeless.
I don't know anything about this game so I can't sy much about it but judging by the sprites here I assume the OG game went for a very detailed and 3 dimensional style. So why did the remake go for something so flat looking? I get that the point of a remake is tovhave it's own identity but It should still somewhat align with the OGs vision. They could easily have gotten an artist whose specialized in detailed art with lots of shading and rendering. The remakes art legit reminds me of those commission sheets made by teenagers that I sometimes see on my twitter feed, not bad but not something you want to see in a published game.

I totally agree. The eyes got disproportionately big in the 90s. They were cuter and full of life for sure but still too big.

I don't know anything about the artist but the art quality definitely doesn't match the developer's (MAGES.) legacy

Scrotes can't jack off to actual butch women, that's why every female character has to look feminine and be sexualized even if the point of her design is that she's androgynous and wearing men's clothes.

Don't get the regular Ipad nor the mini, if you only draw the Ipaid Air does the job just fine it's between the regular and the pro for a middle price. If you intend to do video editing and more complex stuff like 3d and extensive Photoshop then the Pro might be better because it's basically a computer in a form of a tablet (according to reviews).

samefag and regardless of your choice you'd want to get the option with more memory it's worth the extra cost (esp since you will be drawing)!

I have the iPad Pro 12.9 inch 5th generation. It’s nice and is never laggy but if you don’t mind a little bit of a tinier screen I’d say go for the iPad Pro 11 inch. It also has the advantage of being much lighter too if you want to draw while sitting on the couch or if you wanna draw outside etc. The iPad Pro 11 inch is just so much cheaper than the 12.9 inch.

The biggest issue I've been running into using tablets for drawing is less about size of screen/hardware and more about input device. I have a pretty hard time with the apple pencil because I work mainly in lineart, and I don't really like using heavy stabilization. The tip of the pencil feels too big/clumsy in comparison to wacom nibs.

The pen is the Most Important thing when it comes to a drawing tablet; not how big it is, not the sensitivity, not the screen. The pen is what you draw with, it has to feel good in your hands, it has to mimic the feel of a real pen/pencil as much as possible.

Okay so I know we've talked about this before, but can I just rant about how much I hate art that just traces 3D models. I can tell, like, 80% of the time when art has been directly traced or 'refereneced' from 3D models, and I feel like some artists just don't know how obvious it is.
For example, I'm a weeb and I see project diva/vocaloid artists trace the models from the game all the time. It's like? Do you serious think we can't tell? It's the exact same shape with no artistic creativity whatsoever. Genshon impact artists seem to have similar problems but I don't play that game so idk, but it just seems more and more common.
I don't consider myself a great artist, but I'm forever grateful I grew up in a time where I only had access to human photos for references and not 3D models. I think part of the problem that inexperienced artists don't get is that the 3D model they're tracing from doesn't look 'correct' in the first place. Like I've never seen a 3D model that looks as flexible as humans do in real life- which makes sense- but in that case, why are new artists acting like this is the end all and be all of art resources?? No it's not, it makes your anatomy look stiff, your lines look like they have too much of the same thickness, and your style is copy and paste BORING. I'd rather look at anatomically incorrect art than this stuff. Pic somewhat rel.

No. 1396856

Could you go into more detail as to what gives it away when something is traced from a 3d model? Looking at your pic I couldn't really tell, apart from the way the arms are in the pose, noone stands like that irl but 3d characters normally idle that way. Or do you just mean traced from source media?

No. 1396879

I can tell from source media easier but you can tell from generic 3D models too. Usually what gives it away could be a variety of things, stuff poses like you mentioned is one of them. Another example is when an inexperienced artist has 'weak' lines but are following a set curve that I don't think they created themselves (i.e., following the curve of the model but not have the 'hand' of the artists).
Another example is not knowing where to trace, and how many lines to add. In the picture I added the artist added the little flare that comes from the ribcage under the models breasts, which is normally fine to add, but they didn't really added any other details and it sticks out to me. like, the image is just an outline and that's fine, but adding a fine detail like ribage flare seems odd here when there's not that much elsewhere. I know it seems nitpicky, and it's not the worst thing in the world but you can tell when the artist made this from the model, they didn't know what details to add.
Another thing about the model itself is the breasts are undetailed (like they are covered with a shirt) but the stomach is bare and detailed. It comes off as kind of strange in the final rendering imo. Like, the anatomy is correct but it's not translating to 2D art well. It's a skill to trace (genuinely), and with unpracticed artists it can show through.

No. 1396884

Thanks anon, that makes sense. Had another think about it and realised sometimes people will trace a body but have no idea how to add clothes to it and match the curves/perspective.

No. 1396919

I think a lot can come from rendering, tbh. I don't mind 3D models, but the people who can use them and draw over them/exaggerate and make it not look anatomically accurate, so that it's cartoony, are the best ones who utilize these.

Stupid question for artists- I'm commissioning someone and I plan to send a tip too. Should I send the tip with my regular full payment, or should I send it after I get the finished piece? What's the best way to send it (minimal fees so the artist will get the most/all of the tip money)? Would sending it through friends and family on paypal be ok? Or kofi? Or should I just send money on paypal and put it under the goods and services option?

No. 1397728

if you're already tipping, couldn't you just send the tip with the regular full payment and add the fee % on top? so they don't lose $ from the fee.

No. 1397729

My boyfriend [who does commissions for 3+ years] said it doesn't matter. It's a nice surprise either way, but he said upfront might make someone feel more obligated to give extra attention even if they aren't first in line with someone's commission line-up.

Personally, I would send it after. I don't do commissions, but I did do work where I've sold stuff before and getting it after just feels nicer, like.. Personally makes me feel like they cared a little more about how they feel about the final product. Same way with customer service, getting the tip after the fact feels extra good for some reason.

Speaking of that, a really good round brush is Mirre's Favourites, the smooth round feels the most comfortable and in my opinion closest to photoshop’s hard round.

Male porn is honestly just… grotesque. That's the only way I can put it. Everything is so over the top that it loses any kind of sensuality to me and I'm constantly baffled by how low their standards are for what artists they'll coom to.

By grotesque I'm also mostly talking about how over detailed and exaggerated everything is. A lot of them will over render or draw too much detail on things like muscles and things like genitals and breasts will always be huge and in your face with jizz and sweat and drool everywhere too. Plus a lot of them you can tell haven't learned anatomy at all and simply copy whatever's trendy in coomer circles right now so you'll often get weird uncanny anatomy and expressions (the style I hate most is when it's really toony but then whatever the artist has a boner for will be over rendered).

Did you make this post after seeing mine? If so you forgot that women draw female characters more like normal people with normal body parts, instead of like sex objects made of a pair of overly detailed and exaggerated boobs, an ass and a vagina and with child-like features
>>Ahegao and pain facial expressions
Sadly there are some female artists who make popular yandere TL manga that draw the girl's expressions like that. I wonder if they're just imitating moid art thinking that's gonna make their art hotter or if they've started to find it hot due to seeing it everywhere

NTA but it's internalized male gaze. I'v had it happen to me, too, when I was addicted to hentai. If a woman spends all her time looking at that crap made for males, she's obviously going to end up tricking her brain into having the same fetishes as moids (i.e. gets off to women being degraded).

No. 1399053

>or if they've started to find it hot due to seeing it everywhere

No one talks about this, but the things women are expected to enjoy in sex (sucking d, getting pounded into without any care, pain in general) is always shown in male porn as enjoyable for the woman. There's no research on this done, but I do think a lot of straight women are influenced by the sexuality of straight men, instead of ever exploring what really turns them on. The brain is really receptive to conditioning and propaganda.

A lot of women who draw porn for males have had to learn to draw that way when they initially had a different, more female-gazey art-style by default.

My best recommendation if you're doing this as a hobby is to leave the picture alone and not look at it for like a week. When you come back with "new" eyes you start to notice when shit is off. It helps even more to be a creepy people watcher during that week.

If you're talking about pure academic drawing, proportions are typically measured by number of heads. Not to meme, but Loomis does actually have a decent diagram explaining how this works - you just have to keep in mind that his explanation is for idealized/model proportions. It's useful for initially training your eye to become familiar with what's "right", but other anon is right that observation will be more helpful to drawing more realistic proportions in the long run.

I consider crochet (especially when just following patterns) more of a "craft" than an "art" but this is the most fitting thread so I'll post my autistic rant here lol.
Chenille/plush yarn and its consequences have been a disaster for crocheters. I keep seeing girls on instagram and tiktok trying to sell their plush for like, 60 dollars and up for what are VERY low skill/time/beginner projects. Fluffy plush yarn makes your end project bigger (obviously) and bad stitches are very well hidden so it makes their work look much bigger and more impressive than it really is. I'm tired of seeing beginners trying to sell baby's first amigurumi for like 60 dollars and then make constant tiktoks about how hard it is to live as a full time artist and get orders and such. On some level I get that plush yarn IS more expensive but they just keep stubbornly insisting that they aren't overcharging for their work when they definitely are. I know how to crochet (so I know what I'm talking about when I call their stuff beginner) and I've used chenille yarn myself. It does make a tempting "cheat" to make things bigger more quickly but the end result will never look as good.

Somewhat related though, I went to an art convention thing and there were so many female artists selling stuff, doing cool things and some were industry pros. Afterwards, I'd look up the ones I really liked up and they were all tifs and enbies even though they looked like average normie women irl. Not even gnc. Sad!

No. 1400394

imo story is always most important. For example, Mob Psycho 100 has an extremely impactful story despite the art looking like it was drawn by ONE's non-dominant hand, and because the story is good the simplicity of the art kind of adds to the charm. There are also a million manga out there with beautiful art that have lame as shit stories and get cancelled after one volume.

Outside of story though, I think bad panel composition definitely can take away from a story. If every panel is just a bust shot of someone talking with no emotion from the same angles, then it becomes boring to look at. I also personally hate it when there is an establishing shot of a room or environment and it's the most boring ass basic traced 3D model room ever, no details or non-generic furniture. It makes the world feel desolate as fuck. I notice this a lot in quickly made webtoons where the artist just grabbed some premade shit. Also, if a character is showing strong emotion, don't be afraid to make them look a little ugly to really sell the feeling. Some artists can only draw very cute or pretty faces and it looks weird when they can't draw real emotion during intense story moments; the characters end up looking creepily perfect.

Also as the most basic rule of making comics readable, don't put your speech bubbles out of order. Make sure everything is properly placed left-to-right (or right-to-left if you're japanese lmao). It sounds simple but I've read a lot of amateur comics where people don't consider the speech bubbles enough and it becomes hard to read. Preplan and make sure you're considering speech bubbles as part of the composition from your earliest drafts.

If someone wants others to care about their OCs they should make STORIES about them so that I can read it and engage and like them as I do with existing characters I like.
