i am glad i am not the only one. I specially get sad when i see westaboo art on pixiv, wish i could draw like that. On paper it looks 'easy' but i dont know how to reach that level of appeal. I know i am being a dumbass but i am starting to gaslight myself into thinking the ''asian genes'' meme is real.

Does anyone remember rei_17? Turns out, she's a huge cow within the chinese-speaking community, especially on her personal Weibo. She doesn't hesitate on calling out copycats, people using her art w/o permission, starting fights out of thin air and was famously known for her bitchy, holier-than-thou, and narcissistic attitude.
One of the more recent incident involving rei was about the AI debacle, she was gloating about how
>"AI next time should credit whos art they reference from and she felt joy that these dumbass artists are getting replaced by AI if they don't change"!?
That's all the info I can gather from a third party source. After that Weibo status, people started putting her art into ai as prompts kek.
Very little was known about her private life, or at least to our outsider's knowledge. Iirc, someone said she attended School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the reason why she is still around is because she got a very influential agent behind her back, seems like she got pretty rich parents to me. She'll live but I do wonder what's going to happen to her in 10 years time…Is she going to fall out of favor? Delete everything?
I hope more chinese anon can weigh in on this or maybe update us on her shenanigans because my god this bitch is milky.
who cares if she hates the games she draws for? a job is a job and if the end result is good then it doesnt matter that it wasnt done by a hardcore fan>was in a relationship with another artist and drew R15 fanart of them when confronted she claimed they where being a tsundere
objectively i know this is a horrible thing to do but i also find it funny. if a male artist had done this he would be hailed as a meme king. shadman drew porn of a real child actor and no one has tried cancelling him for it it's just treated as something quirky he did.
I dony want to defend it but i dont think its worth being cancelled over
I don't think you know just how much she hated and talked about how much she hated said character. Besides, it's generally good practice to not shit talk everyone in your industry that relies heavily on networking.
Also she wasn't cancelled. She's still popular. People just called out she was a massive two-faced bitch.
>>1571302>no one has tried cancelling him for it
I don't know what was the reaction immedeatly after he did that, but I'm pretty sure people have

Modern Japanese artists have a very different culture from modern western artists. Besides, their style is, generally much less simplified than western cartoon style so they apply a lot more subtle detail. Instead of being anti-improvement like all these zoomer artists on Twitter nowadays using excuses such as muh style to not improve, Japanese artists (and I guess East Asian artists in general) cultivate a hard-working spirit that makes them strive to always do better no matter what. That "my style" bullshit doesn't fly in Japan so if you want to be an artist but don't want to have an embarrassing and shit art style you have to get better (and they often do get better unless they're autistic or retarded or something).
Also, Chinese and Japanese artists have to learn from childhood how to write in their writing system, which is probably related to their ability to control the flow and thickness of their lines so well in drawing (the pic you posted is an example of how different their lines make the same character look vs. when a westerner draws it).

What are your thoughts on copyright protection?
I am in favour of it, I think artists are allowed to do whatever the fuck they want with their work and should retain full power over it. Every person i have met against copyright has been a retard too, their only argument agaist it is ''I want to make my official pokemon porn game without Nintendo sending me a cease and desist'', they are also proAI. I think this video gives a good idea as to why copyright should be protected and the ''it will help artists'' argument of anti copyright laws retards is fake.
tl;dw: the original trolls creator didnt get the rights for it due to some mistake, so a bunch of greedy fuckers made their awful rip-offs to try to make money off the trend. Fan-work has never been threatened by copyright too.
Well deserved. She tried to act like hot shit online and now that people have visual evidence she's a huge ass it backfired immensely on her. I hope she gets blacklisted from everyone's commissions. Saying her bpd triggered
her to blast her dumbassery to 30k followers is embarrassing, girl step down.
god i hated her for the whole fgo debacle years ago. like okay they're paying you for art and you wish they get killed via bombing because…you don't like the game? just deny the work then!
at events, i've seen her always accompanied by a man who does everything for her(carries bags, opens doors, etc), so that must be her agent.

Vee is my favorite artcow tbh, her recent hiatus is due to a) her constantly lurking 4chan /co/ boards and taking everything the moids say about her art or parings there to heart and b) she had somewhat of a psychotic break where she believed she was contacted and abducted by a race of aliens, someone leaked multiple screenshots from her discord, and chaos ensured. Attached is her relaying the alien's belief around incest

They finally banned AI from fanbox, which means less AI shit.
>our aim was to create a platform where creators can create their own communities of fans who will support and cheer them on.
>however, with the recent influx of (the vast amount of) AI-generated art, we feel that they were made only to create contents that can be marketed and we disaapproved of this mindset.
>and this is why FANBOX will stop supporting AI-generated works (in a future, unannounced date)
>failure to comply with this rule will lead to their accounts to be warned, privated and then deleted.
nonnies the tears are delicious, trAInnies got banned off fanbox/fantia. It's even funnier because i am sure that it's collateral damage from when they banned loras trained on artists because Ogipote, an extremely famous anime artist, called out an Aitard using his style. Funniest part? people were acussing Ogipote of making up a fake AI account to generate controversy and get more attention, which would be extremely hilarious and based if true considering it resulted on such a massive change on AI rules on one of the biggest, and most affected, art platforms. Wonder where these leeches will migrate, Patreon will ban the fuck out of them if they try to sell their baby-faced big titty anime pinup shit.
i remember this, she was releasing some shota comic and was getting a tons of attention from anons, to the point there was always a thread up for it on /co/, then she went full schizo and threatened to kill herself, saying how she was broke, living on the streets, etc. Her simps said they would give her moneys, but she doesnt want it for some reason, most than likely because her situation was fake and she was baiting for attention. Unhinged shit. She and >>1571804

Ehh it doesn't really ruin it for me, as you can enjoy the whole story with or without the background knowledge of the author. It's not like pedophilia is expressed in the story. A shame that the original author is a piece of dog crap pedo though.

Didn't Emilie Autumn also do the 'Alice is actually in a mental asylum and Wonderland is her coping fantasy'?" I find this idea pointless, edgy, and somewhat insensitive. At least McGee's Alice had a happy ending and the ability to return to reality on her own, whereas this interpretation seems to lack purpose and depth.

These days it drives me insane to see somebody posting professional quality work online for free, and they obviously don't even get more than a few hundred views.>>1573325

I think it depends on what kind of community you want to seek out first? most of artfol looks juvenile to me, but it's still totally possible to form friends, I haven't actually engaged with people on there or posted so I might be a bit unreliable
definitely have a feel for either of the two just by looking around and maybe even at least just posting maybe once on either and decide which one would probably resonate with you the most or completely ditch both if that helps

Do any self-taught artists here feel bad about not attending art school? Idk if i'm missing out on a lot of oppotunities and connections.
I felt like signing up for those distance learning programs that they have, aka atending night classes after hours with a shorter learning time. However, it can be a huge investment and Idk if it was worth it because of the money.
>>1571490>Chinese and Japanese artists have to learn from childhood how to write in their writing system, which is probably related to their ability to control the flow and thickness of their lines so well in drawing

I attended a design school, not necessarily an illustration school but I did take an online art course and I can say it might help your productivity if you're not the self motivated type.

"Only follow Eastern artists" such a weird choice considering how common gender fluidity is in Japanese media, it's not like it's been in multiple globally popular series or given a platform on variety TV or anything
the only difference with eastern artists is usually when they draw degen stuff the art is better. the only way you're safe is because you can't read what they say, but it's not like you're necessarily shielded from art like that

Sorry here is a better example, from a character design book. not sure what to look at, the wings, floor length pink hair, fox tail? Cat ears??? Random rip in the two coloured leg warmers?
you mean like one piece, one of the most popular manga literally ever, which has two confirmed trans characters?
or fisheye from sailor moon who looks identical to a woman but is male, exactly what the person who even brought up this topic was complaining about, not even getting into the gender-bending of the sailor starlights. oh then nuriko from fushigi yuugi, ranma from ranma 1/2, please save my earth where humans have spirits of opposite genders from past lives, do i need to go on? or how about irl when arashi brought trans onto their variety show and interviewed them like in 2002
jp ppl have normalized playing around with gender for like 40 years at least, so the way this sub fetishizes eastern artists as somehow a bastion from this stuff is really funny. the only difference is you just can't read it and they don't virtue signal about it like americans do
NTA but despite these things existing in media, I almost never see any of that reflected in fanartists' works (I'm not into anything you listed, so I'm unsure about their fandoms). They even put warnings when/if they draw same-sex ships & genderbends.
The only similar thing I see are femboys (mostly for the fujos and weird men) and gerdenbends of male characters (to either make a gay ship straigh or just because boobs). I know some japanese and so far I haven't encountered too many tranny shit in art accounts, but maybe I have been just lucky.

This is a bit OT and I've only seen the OVA but PSME having character reborn as the opposite sex isn't really tranny adjacent cuz they don't mope around about not belonging to their current sex. It's only brought up in a "oh but we're both boys wah" way (unless the manga actually does have them complain about having the wrong body idk).
Agree with you that this thread sucks japan's toes way too much tho. And there were old mangas with straight up troons not even just "magical genderbend cuz lol" or "you tought it was a girl but it's actually a pretty boy" like your examples
but those aren't the ones current trannies like to bring up.

Anyone else feels under immense pressure to get good at art? i want to draw obscure characters/relationship dynamic/fucked up fetishes or unique ideas that i dont seem to share with anyone else. I think this is my biggest motivator but also the root cause of my anxiety, i fear never getting good enough. Pic rel motivates me, she must be like one of the 100 female architects in the whole world and her art is so incredibly good. I hope i can someday reach her level.

no, lol. Nazi bishies are dime a dozen. I know the character, the artist is into fat guys and that's her husbando i assume.
There’s a sizable swathe of fujo who descend into full shota guro dom, I see them on jp twt where there isn’t as much moral fagging and gendie mental illness. I genuinely don’t think 90% of these women sexually get off to these drawings like a male might literally ejaculate semen to child abuse, it’s like they enter a conceptual state of being where they get off on thinking
Is this the artist mgong520? (also her fetish is drawing fat women
Just draw nona. Draw and keep drawing, and then take a break, look back and you'll realize how much you've progressed. I assure you this artist isn't content with her current skill level either, but she clearly enjoys drawing anyway.>>1579767>>1579765
Just call her a woman. It doesn't matter if she's "trans" or if she passes, she's a woman who hates herself and has a self-mutilation fetish.>>1579303>PSME having character reborn as the opposite sex isn't really tranny adjacent cuz they don't mope around about not belonging to their current sex.
NTA but trannies idolize genderbend and trap characters like this, who literally turn into or just look like the opposite sex and are happy and not ugly. It doesn't have to be a realistic tranny with muh gender dysphoria and depression for it to be tranny-adjacent (troon ideals are unrealistic). They also often project their gender identity onto characters that are perfectly gender-conforming.
Ranma is not a troon it's just a genderbend gimmick, he doesn't want to be a woman. There is an actual minor troon character in the series though.
I think still the amount of gendie shit is much less than in the west where it's a plague with zoomer girls and there is little virtue signaling. It's treated like a character trope, not as "representation" or a woke selling point.
You also won't see trooning out already existing normal characters, drawing them with gender badges, chest scars, standing in a white void yelling "trans rights", etc. from japanese artists. Plus since being a fujo is not problematic
there unlike in the west, fujos don't feel the need to troon out to continue drawing their shit and then projecting their transition story onto the characters.
That said, tranny crap and subtle "trans rights" type artwork is only becoming more and more present in the form of original content in Japan, I follow mostly asian artists and it still keeps getting shoved in my face. Avogado6 comes to mind.

Anon if you are a part of the pixiv/twitter fetish art spaces you can get away with anything. Especially with pixiv. They get crazy over there to say the least.
That stops when it's about men drawing things, right? Femcel is obsessed with Nazi character, blaming that he's fat when there are other fat characters lol Not a scrote, but I find the dismissal of women being into this stuff really hypocritical. >>1579836
Like this anon says
I'm not sure if you mixed up your replies, or what>>1580185
I wish there were a place I could discuss these topics (primarily from an art business sense) with other women, but it'd get invaded by scrotes and the same people who told us to leave but follow us anyway
You're confusing me with >>1579768
I don't like fat people, but I want women artists to express themselves and not GAF about being cancelled. some of you need to get over the fact there are female artists who draw some weird shit that aren't pickmes or groomed (or are weird troons/groomers/etc.). Whether your tastes are completely SFW and nonsexual, or this kind of stuff, owning your work and your subject matter is.
No, I don’t think women can be degenerate w/o having some kind of mental disorder. Men are perverts by nature, but in women paraphilia are usually results of integrated trauma.
Maybe you should sit down and think about why you have the fetishes you have in the first place.

i dont know where you got that i have a fetish for fat men lmao. Some of you need to learn how to read. Also, i am obssesed with mgong lately, she ignited the fire to finally start focusing more on color and rendering, though i mostly prefeer her older stuff, not a huge fan of her new painterly style
Funny you should mention femdom since it shouldn’t even be considered a fetish in the first place - women are just conditioned to believe men are dominant by default. >>1580353
Lmao well fetish or not, I followed her because of your posts. I love her style and emotion. Thanks to all of this AI mess, I've been paying more attention to storytelling and tempo. She seems to handle both of those well.>>1580358
The other person your quoting didn't even mention femdom. While I completely agree with your statement, stop blurring people together.

When I do art, I always cannot do something else, like web development. It needs to be one task a day. Anyone else feel this way? Also, can someone tell me good free brushes from procreate that I could use for lineart and sketching? Thanks..
was a schizo herself
yes i also feel this way. i recently got back into posting art online because i got into a fandom i really enjoy. no one's judging me except myself…my followers don't seem to care. i'm in a japanese space so my art doesn't feel as pretty or cool as the artists i admire.
what i'm trying to say is, it's all in one's head, you just have to step outside yourself sometimes. the people you admire probably feel the same way.

Me too nonnie
. I have a specific ship I like and drawing fanarts in a small Japanese twitter group is so fun. Whereas while I was in the normie twitter space I kept getting comments like "is __ trans?" "Omg so cute trans pride!" Mind you I never said that the character was trans nor I drew him feminine.i like how jap spaces focus only on producing fanart and not the other shit
Yet the artist she idolises has drawn borderline cp and is into fat cuntboys
strange to leave that out huh. artists can draw whatever they want doesn't mean I won't judge them if they're into fucking weird fetishes we literally talk about degenerates like nemu a fetish artist
When will retards understand that what makes nemu and the other art cows with weird fetishes cows is their unhinged behavior and not just the fact that they were into weird shit.
There's thousands of artists who get off to weird shit like cuntboys and yet no one cares until they do something really stupid or are involved in drama. You can judge people for their strange tastes, but you only need one post for that, not derail a whole ass thread over it.
The weirdos are the ones who think women can't have kinks and shouldn't draw them, or assume that the kink somehow means something illegal.
Some of you are new to imageboard culture and it shows.
This thread makes fun of people for drawing weird kinks all the time. Maybe you're the new one.>>1580646
She does. It was interesting how her main pairing went from the fat nazi guy x his tan subordinate in Hellsing, to making OCs that follow the same formula. She used to mostly just draw her fat cuntboy OC x the two amputee twins mostly (linked because it's explicit) https://twitter.com/m2gong520/status/1589997328647487491

No one cares what you do in private. It's just if you post about liking weird shit to a thread that clearly makes fun of people for said weird shit, then don't be shocked when anons here call you a freak too.
Speaking of artists drawing NSFW or cuntboys, has anyone else witnessed an artist they used to like to get ruined by this? I know Constellor has been brought up many times in the past, but ever since she opened up her NSFW account, I can't stand to look at her SFW art. Her porn has ruined her anatomy and the charm of her old pieces. It's become one of those art styles you look at and can just tell they draw the most coomer-tier shit ever.

Yes, I was a fan of Sakimi-Chan's work before she realized how much money she could make by pivoting to NSFW.
It always makes me think there might be a day where one of current favorite artist (Guweiz) might do the same.
Was just going to say this. That over-rendered overly detailed style just blends in. I honestly couldn't tell you who made that angel piece. You could pluck 10 similar pieces from art station and unless you obsessively follow artists of this ilk, you wouldn't know the difference.
There's a certain brand of artist that's just that self-cannibalizing. The homogeny is so boring.
To sakimichan's credit though, I can actually point out her late stage broken coomer trash anywhere.

they are still stuck in the early 10s when digital artist wasted time drawing every hair fiber and everyone wanted to be a concept artist so they drew nothing but pretty girls, space marines and boring factories/spaceships with ugly muddy colors. The only thing i like about the modern web is the high amount of amazing artists with different and unique styles that draw for fun instead of to become soulless concept art machines. I am glad we are going back to the 80s/90s and making art with colorful palettes, expressive poses, unique ideas. The 10s were so dull-looking thanks to everyone wanting to be a sakimi or other chinese artists clones. I do not miss it. I really like this artist, wish she would post more though.
lmaooo this is spot on. >guweiz or wlop or krenz

Try drawing with the grid turned on, if your program has that, or use something like this on a separate layer. You'll catch your mistakes way sooner.

Pantsuripper was always a coomer but his more artistic stuff was interesting. Then he made a patreon for lewd drawings, and now he will post five patreon advertising drawings in a row before posting one actual art piece and then a bunch more patreon stuff. Following him is too fucking obnoxious now.
It's also extremely obvious when a drawing that sometimes would otherwise be fine
is a patreon drawing (aside from the obvious poses) because the boobs always have a weird as fuck shape.

Yeah, I don't know what I expected from someone with a screen name like that, but it's still obnoxious as fuck.

Nta but I find it easier if they aren't current because of what you said, and, it's also easier to detach and focus on the work at hand that I'll be studying from instead of feeling salty that I won't match up to a contemporary.
I dont know about anyone else but it's better for me to pull influence and study material when they're old or dead.
Who the fuck jacks off to this? She looks deformed in so many ways. Moids these days can only get off to deformed caricatures of women I guess.
This guy's art devolution is so tragic.

>AI FAIR-USE DESTROYED
Supreme Court ruled that Andy Warhol Foundation was NOT allowed to use a famous photographer's [Goldsmith] creative work of Prince to make "new" pictures.
is sending shockwaves throughout the AI world, and the comparative AI fair-use argument used by generative AI supporters has a new context and precedent. AI companies are claiming they can steal BILLIONS of creative works without consent or compensation to train their AI models to make "new" images, music, and media in output. NOPE…
In the case "Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts, Inc. v. Goldsmith", the artist Andy Warhol's foundation got into a disagreement with a photographer named Goldsmith. Goldsmith told the foundation that they were using her photograph of Prince (the musician) without her permission, which she believed was against the rules.
The foundation disagreed with her. They said that their artwork of Warhol, which was based on her photograph, either wasn't breaking the rules or was fair-use. So, they went to court to get a decision on who was right. And Goldsmith, the photographer and artist, won the dispute.
Here are the details and legal ramifications moving forward for AI:
>Training Data and Volume of Use: Generative AI models typically require vast amounts of data for training. If a substantial portion of this data is copyrighted material, it could potentially be seen as infringing, especially if the AI's output is commercially exploited. The cumulative use of copyrighted materials could be substantial, even if each individual instance might be seen as a small portion of the total data. This ruling may inspire stricter scrutiny of the sources of training data for AI models, highlighting the need for clearer permissions and rights for the use of copyrighted content.

reminds me of the furry who "accidentally" fell asleep with dry ice wrapped on his hands for arthritis, and had both amputated. he is also not the first person to do that, nor the last I'm surehttp://abcnews.go.com/Primetime/Health/story?id=1806125
Twitter kids are always so obnoxious about disliking her. They need to realise that "her art kinda sucks" is ok on its own, no need to try to cancel her over convoluted terminally online flag discourse to be allowed to dislike her art, especially because some of their arguments are so obviously self contradictory (Promised Neverland is racist for giving the character huge lips but LT is whitewashing it by toning it down??)
Honestly, LT sounds like a nice person, but sometimes she makes puzzling artistic choices. She's pretty much the definition of "churning out content".
Also, in her video she mentioned she changed Haruhi's armband into a sash because it gave her "hetalia axis powers vibes in a bad way", which gave me second hand embarrassment when I heard it for being so stupid also, design wise it also sucks because with japanese school uniform and especially sailor style the torso already has a bunch of detail by default whereas the length of the arm has pretty much none, so she's just making the torso look painfully cluttered she also gave Haruhi the most hideous hairstyle I've seen drawn before
File: 1684736436235.jpg (170.9 KB, 1642x958, LM.jpg)
These reasons are so retarded. Twitterfags need to stop tacking on these mundane reasons to shit on her art.
Also holy shit these are the ugliest designs I have ever seen
One literal white skintone. 2 light skin tone(where one is warm and the other is cold), 1 medium and 2 dark skin tones. Plus 3 fantasy colours. There could maybe be a little bit more but considering that picrews are free and they are intended to be played for fun I think this is perfectly fine amount. I have light skin and none of these colours match me.
The thing about picrews is that unlike triple AAA video games you make a character in a few minutes and then that's it you had all the fun you could get. The artists who makes them are either hobbiest or prof artists who makes them in their spare time. So expecting to make your OC or a realistic self portrait is a bit much. Yes it sucks when the options are limited and I understand why people with dark skin are frustrated that they are always left out in character customizations but wouldn't it be more productive to promote picrews that uses a wide range of darker skin tones rather than making callout posts for artists who don't. Lavendertowns style is so distinctive anyway that even if she did offer every skin tone on earth it would still be hard to make a self-portrait or an already established oc
She panders to zoomers and these callouts don't come from any artist, but zoomer "artists" specifically. You reap what you sow i guess.>>1584005
I do find it funny that the same people who are bringing this old dirt up and lashing out at LT for "fixing" (uglifying) Haruhi and other anime girls do the same exact shit except making them black/troons/deathfats and then it's okay, kek
Not trying to white knight, but I think you're being too harsh on how much you think she's "pandering". I think she's way too normie for that.
The videos I've seen of her with a topic that could be kinda pandery (like the one where she redesigns problematic
character designs) had an extremely normie approach to it. Even the retarded armband thing I mentioned was more "ignorant normie says really dumb shit" than actually trying to cancel the show for it for brownie points. I honestly don't think she's even aware of the xe/xir trigender foxkin kids as a potential audience.
At most she "panders" in the same way business boards do, where the pandering isn't ideological at all, just based on picking topics that might be popular.>>1583908
I think that was either self censoring because she likes to stay as pg as possible or just her using Hetalia as a reference point because she's a weeb.>>1584005
I just realized another reason I dislike the middle and right one. The heads with LT's bug eyes style look decent on their own and the bodies look decent on their own (except for the weirdly unshaded hands), but together they look so weird because the body has realistic proportions. Middle one's torso looks so long because of this.

Twitter is going to start scrapping stuff for AI. I hope ellon's ass gets sued into oblivion. I doubt Nintendo, Sony, Disney would like the new change.
dA has a similar TOS and likely used the clause to build their own AI model. So while the "sudden news" is unwarranted, the concern has basis because we've already seen this happen before.

This and the "haha sorry my ADHD brain" this and "ADHD that" has been trending as an excuse for a lot of things lately when 99% of the time they haven't been diagnosed with it.
This trendy bullshit with the mental health talk is really starting to get played out. Everyone is walking on eggshells because of someone else's "triggers
Artists are prone to feeding into this nonsense because they feel like they need an excuse for whatever behavior they're exhibiting. The constant ADHD/'tism mentioning, unprompted usually indicates I'll get really tired of interacting with that artist, really fast, and that they don't have the mental maturity to keep personal health bullshit to themselves. Everyone is oversharing it and leaving themselves vulnerable.

AYRT and thank fucking god I'm not the only who noticed this with mental health being used as some "uwu qUiRkY" excuse to obnoxiously feign for oppression points. The artist I've been watching who's been doing this claims she was diagnosed and she's in her 30s but most of the other artists she's friends with who join in on her streams are zoomers with the youngest being 19 and I can't help but feel that the reason why this main chick I'm referring to is like this is because her tard zoomer friends act like this.
>The constant ADHD/'tism mentioning, unprompted usually indicates I'll get really tired of interacting with that artist, really fast, and that they don't have the mental maturity to keep personal health bullshit to themselves. Everyone is oversharing it and leaving themselves vulnerable.

I feel you anon. I will say that this artist isn't as bad when she's doing streams by herself and while she'll still obnoxiously bring up the "sorry guys, it's the 'tism" bullshit, she doesn't do it early as much when she's with her friends. But it's just that I have come across a few other streaming artist who say the same thing. I remember being initially confused by the slang "tism" until I heard what it was meant to mean kek.
AYRT and ah okay, that makes a lot more sense. I'm not on TikTok but I do remember hearing about how there were some people on there faking having disorders but the one I remember hearing about was when people were faking having BPD and Dissociative identity disorder. I didn't know it was now extending to Autism but it makes so much more sense why I've been seeing more artist use those phrasings like "tism".
It's just annoying (but not surprising) how this bullshit slipped into the art world.

Proko is so chill I love his attitude so much
I agree with you, her art isn't appealing at all. I remember i looked at her social media and she barley gets any traction, so it is weird to me that she doesn't work to improve her art more. It feels very deviantart to me.
At one point her audience was growing and if she had put more effort into her art, she would have gotten more popular. Now she only uploads sobstorys to yt, that is probably also not appealing to new people.
KEK I thought this was a gijinka
of Mordecai and Margaret from Regular Show
She's always been such a miserable person to me. Always something to bitch about to gain pity points. I'm not expecting artists online to be all sunshine and daisies but holy shit, she's like a pile of sludge just looking for other people to commiserate with. I wonder if, given her resistance to improving her art, she's even enjoying making it anymore. She seems to be on autopilot with her technique and never does anything new. I'd be fucking miserable too if that was my art style for the past 6+ years and I was left behind in the dust. But that's all on her, not "the other artists" she keeps whining about.
Reality has to hit her at some point that maybe the reason she's never been able to support herself from her art, is because it just isn't as good, and that she's in a very lucky position to have her husband support her hobby the way he does; maybe she doesn't want to admit it is a hobby.
>>1589004>I remember I looked at her social media and she barely gets any traction, so it is weird to me that she doesn't want to improve her art more.
Yeah exactly. I don't want to judge her on that merit alone though because I can admit that I don't get much traction on my own art neither and I think that my stuff is okay though I'm trying to take steps to improve my work.
She has said that the reason she doesn't practice more is because she's "too busy" and "doesn't have the time" which is just… Really? She doesn't have an IRL job and after listening to some of her streams, she always complains about how something inconvenient happens in her life that "kills her mood" and to where she feels entitled to take an off day to relax… It just makes me wonder if she's just that much of a laze about.
>At one point her audience was growing and if she had put more effort into her art, she would have gotten more popular. Now she only uploads sobstorys to yt, that is probably also not appealing to new people.
Yeah she was growing for a bit but I think the only reason that was happening was because she was doing her YouTube so consistently back during that time. I don't think a lot of people watch her content for her art but just because they either enjoy her personality or enjoy her talking about drama whether it's online or personal life stuff.
See I'm the same way. Granted me and her are the same age but I remember when I came across her content in 2016 and though I didn't really like her art style that much, I liked listening to her for BG noise and I felt like overtime her art style would improve but 5+ years later and her art still looks unappealing to me.
>but even I thought it was strange how she kept talking about the other artists; "The other artists this", "The other artists that," and complaining about not making any money. It just reeked of insecurity,
It definitely was insecurity but she didn't want to admit it. Again I looked at some of the other artists who worked the artist alley and a lot of them had pretty well-done styles, even the cartoony or anime ones. She probably deep down felt intimidated but wants to save face.
>but like, doesn't her husband support both of them?
Yes he does anon. Michie hasn't worked a IRL job in at least 5+ years and her husband is the main breadwinner. He even got a promotion at his job recently from what she shared in one of her recent streams this month. So it's assumed that Michie doesn't have to work a regular job since her husband already makes enough to support the both of them even though she claims that she pays a sizeable portion of their bills though I kind of doubt that and at most, she probably pays for the electricity and/or groceries (she's done "emergency grocery" commissions in the past).
>I don't know how to articulate it; she's always been kind of hit-or-miss but this time around she felt particularly whiny and weird and I found myself cringing at both her and the art.
Same anon, same. She's hit/miss with me as well but lately she's been missing a lot and comes off super whiny and it doesn't help that her art hasn't improved neither. I can't help but feel that part of the reason why she doesn't practice more with her anatomy is because her much younger friends gas up her art even though I gotta admit that her younger artist friends styles look much more appealing than hers and they're like 6-10 years younger than her.
It's a shame because if she just stopped with the shading practice and worked on her anatomy, she would see genuine improvement.

>>1589842>I wonder if, given her resistance to improving her art, she's even enjoying making it anymore. She seems to be on autopilot with her technique and never does anything new. I'd be fucking miserable too if that was my art style for the past 6+ years and I was left behind in the dust.
She says that she still enjoys making art and she always feels the need to geek out over how much she loves the way she colors eyes which again yeah sure, her coloring is somewhat okay but it doesn't fix her derpy ass looking style that is not gonna appeal to many and she claim she doesn't care all she wants but then she shouldn't be surprised if people don't want to buy her art when she's working the cons.
Pic-rel is one of her recent pics she did that she turned into merch and her saying that it didn't sell much… I mean yeah why is that surprise. Like yeah it's Zelda and Zelda is hot right now because of Tears of the Kingdom but yet the characters look absolutely unappealing in her wonky style. Link looks kinda okay but Ganon looks horrible and Zelda is very "meh".
>Reality has to hit her at some point that maybe the reason she's never been able to support herself from her art, is because it just isn't as good
I feel like her latest experience at this con is that reality or at least part of it. She says that this other con she went to didn't go so well neither but she didn't explain why (yet) so we'll see but if it's because she wasn't making profit there neither, that should be a double wake up call.
Exactly. I mean it's great she didn't lose the merch but it should say something if no one bothered stealing anything which can signify that eve a thief finds your work too lackluster to even try to sell on their own.
And obviously she didn't manage to sell much if at all of the merch in the box anyway so… That's just a lot of space inventory to add to the pile.

Forgot to post the picrel.
said. Ever since she learned about the symmetry tool, she uses it VERY frequently from using to for the eyes and using if for when she shades. According to her it's "working smarter, not harder" but yet the end result looks like… That. >>1591022
And it doesn't help that she draws the eyes so close together. She doesn't use the 1 eye apart principle and it's also what enhances the cross-eyed look even more.>>1591024
Because she thinks her coloring/shading is so great looking. As I said in another post, she tends to dote on how much she loves her shading style and it doesn't seem like she cares much about the anatomy (or lack thereof) because again, she's too busy with commissions to practice (even though she has a near 2 year long queue of commission work…)

No problem anon, look her up on YouTube when you have the chance to see what we mean, her username is Twisted Disaster. That's also her DeviantART account where you can see more of her art to get a better look at some of her other stuff.
>How do people end up with art styles like this?
I think it's because she just got complacent in her skill level, especially with the friend group she hangs around in these days. She's said time and again that she wanted to go for a cartoony style and so it feels like she uses that as an excuse to justify not practicing more on her anatomy to clean it up. She also draws a lot of chibis and I can't help but feel that that also contributes to why when she draws non-chibi art, it looks so unappealing.
Your analysis is correct in that she's not the worst but it's not great neither. She's stuck in a limbo in-between and it's a shame she doesn't practice more because with more tweaking and improvement, her style would look more appealing and she'd probably get more business.
It doesn't help that her art friends who are so much younger than her gas up her style which probably makes her not feel like improving more which results in lack of sales IRL in competitive artist environments.
I don't like mingling with the local art community because it's either annoying commie politispergs or or edgy scrotes like khyleri
Kind of, mostly because i feel most artists in my country are either
1.full on SJW
2.full on unfunny scrote
3.participate more in the "international" art community (don't speak mainly their native language, engage often more with foreigner artists etc)
4.if none of the above, there's a huge chance i'm just really not interested in their artstyle/subjects
I can't answer your question, sorry, but I remember really liking her art but I've recently fallen out of interest for it. I read the prologue of her comic she's been hyping up for ages with her characters and was super underwhelmed. It looked kind of rushed and has that annoying webtoons scroll format. On top of that, it was boring as rocks. I like her art otherwise, her sketches and videos are amazing. It's her first comic and most people's first comic sucks but.. It's just that kpop romantic drama flavor I don't care about, and if that was the prologue the rest might not be good.
I dunno how she managed to get as popular as she did with such vague characters, but maybe it really was just the aesthetic looking, mellow artvlog videos.
AYRT, oh that's right artists really were gripped by those two things specifically at the time. I saw a lot of Detroit become Human fanart but the kingsman stuff was pretty unique.
Props to her for going the OC route, and having it sell, that's honestly my goal so her vlogs can be inspiring to watch. I hope you find them, nona!

i didn't think she was a man because of her paraphilias, it was the photo and that comic that fooled me, but yeah, the fandom stuff does make it obvious, Saihara x Kokichi, references to the climate of Tumblr, Aggretsuko, Deep-Sea-Prisoner's games, Reigen x Shigeo, Death Note L, Edward Elric, Spamton, all of it kind of does make it obvious that it's a mentally disturbed woman that ventured into the worst parts of the internet and left with several paraphilias.

NTAYRT but this is exactly what my local/national art community is like. Most of them are terminally online (so the few ones whose art style I remotely like are showing their tumblresque fanart-looking stuff/straight up fanart at real life exhibitions, are full-on LGBTQIA++++ supporters even though no one here except Americanized retards like them give a shit, are obvious coomers who love American cartoons…), the few artists who aren't like this are just… not very good. I saw a lot of these recently and virtually none of them know how to paint a human face or a body, or an animal, or a house. Their art is really basic, it just looks pretty and impactful because it's traditionally painted and on a big, often framed canvas. I want to be like them, even learn from them if possible and become a local painter whose art is both normal (not terminally online) and good. I've got a better grasp on anatomy and fundamentals than most of these mostly older people, but on the other hand, I don't know how to paint and it seems like an overwhelming skill to learn.

>>1593297>No one is manufacturing dress-shaped clothing to fit male bodies
this isn't necessarily true. Female clothing patterned for men exists but it's all BDSM gear, or those horrifying sissy dresses. Sort of telling that it's all for fetish purposes. I think whether or not it's a fetish depends but you can usually tell. Feminine gay men wear makeup and women's clothes and nobody really cares, but the whole "transforming into a sexy lady" thing is popular with a totally different type of guy and it's for sex or humiliation purposes only.

This was so unnecessarily spiteful, the quoted tweet didn't even throw shade to Halle Bailey
AYRT, ah bummer. I'll have to look into that but I dunno, I just wish I could have art friends again but I know that if they saw that I don't pander or validate troons and don't htink JK Rowling is the second coming of Hitler, they'd turn on me in a beat.>>1594089
Yeah I have noticed that even the artists who aren't gender tards but are terminally online can be just as worse.
I still talk to some artists in passing and I try to keep it brief as well and if I notice them retweeting trans crap, especially in the last few weeks with the "next month is LGBTQ+++ month" bullshit, I just try my hardest not to say anything.
IT was really hard when some artist was virtue signaling about how troons are being murdered in the streets and it's like where is the fucking proof but I stopped myself.
I just would love to find artists who have a fucking brain, is that too much to ask? lol
I hate this spiteful high school bully shit on twitter. This art is good, but it's an asshole move to QRT art. Their only motivation to post this was to gain followers. If they posted their art by itself, it would be liked/rted but that's it. Being a victim
crying about whitewashing will make you popular, and that's what really gives them energy, not finishing a nice drawing.
I hate how you can't call this movie dogshit without having to tongue Halle's asshole to prove you're not a racist. Disney now has an infallible advertising defense against their remakes; hire a black popstar and let the stans screech everyone into submission.
That being said I watched the original the other day and wow, I never noticed how well paced it was. It didn't have any scenes that would be wasted on overly ambitious worldbuilding or characters that serve no purpose, it just told a simple story from beat to beat with no lingering.
New Masters Academy has a russian style drawing course and a lot of other traditional drawing/painting courses. I think they still give you a week long free trial. I really liked their 3d modells and refrences too.
It is worth a try, but you still need to force yourself to study and that's why i stopped the membership. I just can't bring myself to use it enough to make it worth it.
That's a good way to go about it and I try to do the same. And I think I'm gonna end up unfollowing a lot of artists because of "pRiDe mOnTh" where these attention whores come out of the woodwork.
And believe me, I want to be able to just look the other way with this shit but when it comes to trying to make new friends, I just don't have the patience or motivation to validate such retardedness and pretend like my "friend" is the opposite sex or neither sex, I just don't have time for that anymore.
I understand you anon. Granted I'm black myself and I could smell the bullshit like most of the others when the race change was announced, I understand why some non-black people may feel uncomfortable criticizing the movie for fear of being targeted by unhinged fans who unironically like the movie.
Personally I think that so long as you have criticism that isn't just on the race change itself, you should be fine (in theory…).
Kek I don't have pronouns in bio and it's always hilarious to see TRAs dodge using any for me because they've been taught that even they/them is ~misgendering.~ If they actually ask though I'll just say she/her, it's cringe but no small victory over gendies is worth losing half my audience for muh transphobia.
Best practice around gendies is to try not to interact in the first place, their spaces are infested with petty drama and it's not worth it. With older friends who they/them'd down the line I do the online equivalent of smiling and nodding but saying nothing. They're so desperate for validation most of them will take anything kek
I personally don't care about if someone lists their pronouns in their bio. As long as they aren't using "they/them" or those "neo-pronouns" like "Xe/Xer", I don't automatically click off the profile upon seeing them. Now if the person turns out to be a troon and using opposite sex pronouns to describe themselves? That's a different story.>>1595169
Yeah I don't have my pronouns listed neither, if people care that much, I'll answer but beside that, nah man, no need.
>Best practice around gendies is to try not to interact in the first place,
Right, this is why I avoid joining Discord places because I know that this is the main hub where many of them fester in and as much as I would love to try to connect with some new artists, it's just not worth the risk having to deal with troons, especially the unhinged ones.
Would you say that finding artists in their 30s+ would be the more likely way to finding artists who don't buy into the trans hype as much? Because it seems like Gen Z are the ones very obsessive with "muh gender identity".

Tips on how to draw characters with backgrounds and make them look good? I love drawing characters in general and all the time I focus on the character alone too much and once I finished I don't know what the fuck should I do with the background; so I always either add a solid color or a gradient, and kind of destroys the rest of the drawing because everything is consistent but the bg.
Instead of jumping into drawing a character, think about the environment first. It doesn't have to be complicated, a girl sitting on a chair by the window, then gather references to draw that.
Also, I've found it way easier to color with accurate lighting when I know where a character is, instead of them standing in a void. If she's by the window, the light will come from the window. Just start thinking of entire scenes to draw instead of just characters, and backgrounds will become easy.
File: 1685741569788.jpg (85.26 KB, 651x730, N01615_9.jpg)
what the other anons said and: STOP thinking of it as a character + background and segregating elements of the picture. from now on, think of making an image. you're cursed by the same affliction that is holding back a lot of contemporary illustrators who learn exclusively from the internet. an image like this wouldn't be possible if Sargent was thinking "i'll just paint these kids and stick them on a background". to make a good image, everything in that image must work together in harmony with a purpose.
I'm confused. I haven't seen the soulless
remake but did the artist redraw a scene from the remake with the OG Ariel or did they just make fanart of OG Ariel?
Same here with my artist friends, a lot just went completely offline to spend time with their immediate family or full time convention artists. Artists my age in their 30s just care less about what the terminally online have to say, right now we are making what we can for our retirements.
When I see artists I have followed since the 2000s are now still publishing degen doujin on toratoana, living the peak fujoshi life in their 40s, it does give me hope too.
>start having kids in their 30s
Lmao, I'd argue the pressure starts sooner than that, Nona. It just gets more obnoxious like "WELL? You're 30 chop chop with the babies, bitch!"
But I digress, I'm also in my 30s and don't plan on having any children because I don't even like them and I am still pursuing art as a career. I never found instant success or momentum in my teens or 20s but I did learn a lot and feel like I'm just now hitting my stride. I'm pretty confident in my skill now, and I don't worry about what gendie zoomers have to say. They tend to gravitate toward my art but it's whatever, if they got money I'll take it.
Moids hate being an object of female gaze. That is, they understand deep down that objectification is wrong, since they themselves don't want to be an object of someone's desire. But they still gladly apply it to women and actually are well aware that they treat women like furniture in their art. They know it's wrong but moids get a kick when they degrade women. And treating women as nothing but a sex object is degrading.
So moids hate it when we do the same, since they think we draw cute males only because we want degrade and put down maleness (which is not true).
I’d also like to add that the male artists there who were the most talented were very relaxed and supportive and complimented/defended me. I’m not saying this as a #notallmen thing, more like the difference between artists who respect and learn from their peers vs toxic
ngmis who just draw coom/borderline coom and only care about making art if it gets them popular or if they can jerk off to it.
There’s a lot of art I find disagreeable but I’d never insult an artist over their taste, I’d recognize their merit for what it’s worth, especially if it’s something so innocent. I just hate how self centered most men are, and think everything crewted must exist in service of them, and anything that doesn’t is a targeted conspiracy against them.
AYRT and thanks for the heads up because I'm in my 30s as well but I just haven't been very active on social media art besides just looking at art. You're right though that while most of the people I know around my age, they are TRAs as well. I totally forgot how some of my acquaintances reacted when Hogwarts Legacy came out and they were saying how "evil" JK Rowling is. Damn lol.>>1595641
Aw this is so sad because it feels like you're right. I don't know many artists but my 2 friends in high school who were artists no longer draw anymore. Both of them got married and have kids and one of them is a nurse. This is where I feel a weird where I am because I'm in my early 30s and still do art because I genuinely love drawing but yet I have no desire to work for a studio and am content doing freelance. >>1595644
Even though I never stopped drawing, I feel you anon, especially with how the online social landscape has changed in the last decade. Let me guess, where you o DeviantART as well? lol Those were the days, it was a lot simpler back then.
+1 as someone else in their 30s who has no desire to be a parent. It's not that I hate kids but I just know I would be a horrible parent, especially with my own mental health issues and I'd rather not brig a child into the world to put that on.
I think this is why I have felt no need to stop drawing even though I'm ot "successful" with it. Drawing makes me happy and I've been doing it for like ever so why stop doing something that makes me happy? My main goal right now is to just continue practicing and hopefully be able to become a full-time artist who occasionally takes on small IRL jobs here in there.

Have any of you ever worked on an indie project? either a webcomic, game, VN, etc. I Have so many ideas for projects, but i dont feel good enough yet. Was thinking of trying anyways with an idea i am not too attached to, to practice but dunno, i am afraid of becoming that type of artists that gets stuck with a passion project and never improves(RebelTaxi).
Same, I have tons and tons of ideas and projects that I really want to start and bring to life, but for some reason I cannot start and I literally do and feel like your picrel
(Actually I know what the reason is: I’m simply scared that if I start something I will become tired of carrying it on, leaving it unfinished before it’s done. It’s truly the only obstacle that is separating me from…. from basically anything I want to do, and I really want to overcome it, but I don’t know how and I feel like shit because of it)

>>1595641>On top of that a lot of decent artists who do art for fun end up abandoning the hobby in their 30s as they grow out of it and move on to focus on their careers
I'm in my early 30s and on the edge of quitting art and becoming a wagie (even though it caused me a mental breakdown) because I don't understand how to show my work to people. Thankfully I have a part-time job to support me right now, because I am totally clueless about business things.
I honestly think the solution is to do an idea you’re actually attached to, not just trying something you’re so-so about because you’re scared. These kinds of projects take time and effort and lots of perseverance so it’s important to love and believe in your project so you can keep going when it gets tough.
I started working more seriously on a project I’ve been thinking about for a few years now and it feels incredibly rewarding to see it progress. Obviously it’s not always easy but just thinking about having it finished makes me happy so I keep going and I really enjoy the process.
It’s really important to actually get your ideas out there and not just let them ruminate in your head for years, and you’ll improve so much more if you work on a project and publish it and have people see it and get feedback. You’ll find out so much more about how to do things and it’ll get easier to do the next one.
I've run a fanzine that ended up losing me money kek but it was a huge experience, a level-up if you will, I learned so much about managing a team project, the costs, what I absolutely never want to do again, and my will and patience to keep going to see a project through to the end (even if the end isn't that great) has increased.
Nona, you just have to do it. The reality is, no one cares what you post online and what you're doing, so just do it. Failing at gaining an audience, or whatever your end goal is with a project, doesn't mean you failed. You will learn so much by just doing the thing. You will learn nothing by not starting anything at all.

Nonas, do you watch any art YouTubers and if yes, who and why? What kind of art video types do you like the most (draw with me, speedpaint, streams, gimmicky etc.)?
I would like to watch some but so many (mostly women) have such juvenile content, I can't really get into it. On the other side male artist are so boring.
Pic slightly rel, used to watch waffles but she has been having medical flare ups again…
I know some nonas would believe I'm reaching here but that style is a tiny bit similar to rinotuna; he has some tutorial books if you search enough.
The difference is that the colors of this style is brighter and eye-catching, using pink for reflection light and baby blue for casting light.
Plus, there are some obvious textures added on top of the drawing.
So tl;dr cell shading but with some blending
Typically all they do is the typical base colors, shading on top, and color dodge for highlights. I got a demonstration once and the artist tended to avoid using multiply or color adjustment layers for the shadows, but I don't think that's standard everywhere. They aren't restricted to using the same color palettes per cover and have creative freedom over how things look so long as it's still iconic. Tldr:>Base color, paint shadows, paint highlights, or use add(glow)/color dodge layer>Make sure the character is what stands out the most in the artwork, and that they have the most contrast>For some reason, almost every character is shaded with equal amounts of attention, but if you really want them to be in the background, put a screen layer over them with the same color as the atmosphere>Grain filter

>>1597898>Are things as bad on your side of the internet? Or is it truly a problem primarily found in the Western art community rather than being language-dependent?
I think it's mostly concentrated on Twitter and Tumblr and those sort of spaces, regardless of language. Yes, the Anglosphere is the most fucked, but it has been spreading to other countries and linguistic online communities in reccent years, but like I said, it's mostly on those kinds of social media sites (and TikTok probably).
Even in the Anglosphere there are still some decent art communities that aren't all about trannies and identity bullshit like it used to be a decade ago, but they're hard to find, especially since most artists feel forced to engage in social media these days.>>1598342

I have a webcomic that got decently popular with several thousand followers. I try to keep up with it but its hard to maintain motivation when its a story idea I came up with years ago in my teens, a lot of it is not up to my personal standards of quality, and I have so much less free time now. I think if you wanna do a project its best to just throw yourself into it, you'll learn as you go.>i am afraid of becoming that type of artists that gets stuck with a passion project and never improves(RebelTaxi).
Artists who make shitty projects are more accomplished than artists who insist they'll make their masterpieces later when they have more skill but never do. Don't worry about making something shitty, cause the process of making something shitty will teach you a lot if you're willing to learn from your mistakes. You need to be less self concious and simply enjoy the process of creating and learning.

There are many styles I admire that I would love to have as my own, but I know I would hate actually doing it (like a line heavy style) Liking a style does not mean you will enjoy drawing in that style, and you must enjoy it.
Also, what is your end goal? Because each field of art has different styles. A leyendecker style would not be suitable for the animation field, for example. If you want to create cute merch, an anime style could work.

I wanna make art for games and also stand alone illustrations. For games i wanna go with a pc98 older anime style or something like watanabe's 00s moeblobs. But for illustrations that mean something to me i prefeer to go with a more realistic style. It's actually funny to see my illustrations of women compared to my drawings of men which are just anime moeblobs in lewd poses, lol.

thanks! actually one of my fav artists, yoh yoshinari(above) has a pretty varied style, but i still feel like what i am going for might be waaaaay too different to ever find a middle ground. But i will try regarless, the fundamentals of drawing are all the same anyways. Below are some of my favourite artists, i like being able to enjoy varied artists, but its a pain to brainstorm what i like about them and how to implement it on my art without it being a mess

There really are different dimensions and realities because in what world
I won't lie, I'll admit that I have seen some AI art that does look nice but ultimately it all is soul-less feeling. Like sure it may look high quality but yet the knowledge that it's not an actual drawn piece just kills it for me.
And on DeviantART there is a shit ton of AI art clogging the front page these days and as I said before, it feels so artificial and can even blend together.
There will always be a place for actual artists so it's best to not sweat it about AI art as unsettling as it can be for some.
i agree with the sentiment that artists aren't losing quality clients to ai. i'm not trying to doompost but its clear that many artists are getting less commissions lately, including myself. is it really so unreasonable to think that ai could be contributing to this alongside the shit economy? a shitty coomer client is still a paying client nonetheless. i personally am losing a lot of the "draw my OC!" client emails, and im wondering if it has something to do with ai but obviously cant prove. >>1599518
you're probably right, this is my first recessions as an artist and i'm just worried about how well its coinciding with the rise of ai. again, not trying to doompost but it feels like my inbox is crickets right now.
Hold your hands tenderly as well nona. I understand the embarrassment, although you should keep them open in my opinion.
If it makes you feel better, I tried lowering my price a month ago and still cricket noises in my inbox. This year economy is really that bad.

It's alot of fun to reminise about Deviantart during it's heydays but remember when you'd get a notification for a work being favorited and being excited, only to see it was a random scrote adding your innocent artwork/photography to some fetish collection? Moids with obvious fetishes still on the currently popular platforms exist but I feel less gross when AnimeTummyLover34 on Twitter just likes my innocent fanart rather than adding it to a public collection I can't control.
Kek I've done this a lot of times actually. I do some random drawing and I write "for anonymous commissioner"
It never fails to get me actual clients, it's a good strategy
also i started vtubing
which earned me quite a few commissions
I used to do this ten years on deviantart and it has proven to work well. I would recommend this to new commission artist anons who haven't had rigid posting style yet. Right now I'm just happy that my non-commission posts are getting more traction and new followers than my annual commission crunch.>>1601818
This is why I would never sell my brand to coomers for the majority of my commissioners have been fujo and yumejo. I cannot tell you how lovely to work with these customers in compared to having a moid in my DMs every three days for his dirt cheap kofi commission.

Any anons on here use toyhouse and get money from it? i've been using it for some time but only recently to make money and i've made some selling some characters but i haven't actively made an effort to make it
any advice to actually get a following/clients in there? i don't think toyhouse has much discussion or strategy planning like other site (da in it's time/twitter/instagram) so i thought id ask here
Nta nonna, but how did you get yumejo commissioners? By drawing husbandos with large fanbase or?
Ive been drawing my husbando and other attractive male characters a lot lately, and was thinking if i could throw commission tweet…
I have a best friend who's obsessed with otome games, she'd spam me news of whatever new otoge available with her new favorite husbando. I think it all started of us drawing our fan arts of those otoge to develop a niche audience of yumejo now.
Japanese/Korean/Chinese visual novel fandom should be worth to look into anon, we're a parched bunch.
i get what you mean but it really isn't equivocal. by that logic, whenever someone gets fucked over by a sponsor, website, etc. they should say nothing about it even though it pertains to their community or niche.
It's one thing if the owner comes up and starts complaining to you specifically when you have no interest in it versus them putting up a sign or making a facebook post about how a sponsor or business partner stole money from them. And usually, when it comes to sponsors/business partners being shady, they are shady to more than one person.>>1603060
given how i've heard rumors of sponsors being shady, having bad deals/contracts, etc. in general when it comes to the YT art community it is probably more likely than it isn't. At 6.3 mill subs, he really has nothing to gain by lying since YouTube is probably enough in and of itself to keep him afloat. Given how his art is, he can probably afford it by virtue of the fact that it can be written off as a tax expense + the sponsor likely paying him more money given his size.

Yes, I fucking hate doing lineart for this exact reason. I never know what to do and I think that's the problem, that I don't plan what I want to do with my lines when I'm "inking" digitally. I visualize the whole picture, not the finer details of the lineart. It's also something that you have to experiment and practice with a lot (for example, changing the thickness in different places to achieve certain effects) and also it's important to start small or you'll be overwhelmed with a bigger canvas.
But regardless of whether or not it looks like shit, when you start to color and render, it'll look much better and the lineart will be barely noticeable.

I understand skills and all, but is always the same backgrounds.
I noticed these artist always use the backgrounds from five movies: Howl's moving castle, Spirited Away, Ponyo, Totoro or Arrietty.
Granted, people can draw their fav movie, but there are tons of movie from Ghibli and still are the same scenes.

I struggle with this, too, nonnie
. Don't feel afraid of stretching proportions or exaggerating certain features. Try drawing from life references, but don't only seek out pretty models. I know Loomis is memed a lot, but taking the standard rules of head proportions and breaking them like he suggests works. Starting with the base and then messing with the proportions is a practice many character designers do. It results in varied facial features and head structures. Picrel is an example of old people, but you can use this method on younger faces. With younger people, their skin sags less (or not at all, depending on how young), and they are more attractive to the public than older people, so it's okay if they're not all drawn unappealing.
Also would recommend taking inspiration from artists that don't draw in a modern anime-esque style nor those Instagram-famous people like Sam.>>1606493
This is pretty bad advice. They aim to have more varied features, not be stuck with the same ones.
>>1606485>I've discovered that I love painting elderly people for this reason.
When you play elderly people you just don't change the features? Is that the only difference? Then maybe >>1606493
is right. Just stop changing it. I would advise you to not draw models, try looking up actors, they tend to cast people who look more plain and normal on a lot of series and movies and with movies and series you get to see them in different angles and expressions, just avoid the obvious big hollywood ones where everyone is super hot.

You can draw whatever kind of face you like, I gravitate towards drawing a certain kind of female face, too, but mostly because of how expressive it becomes, and how flattering it is on each woman. But I recommend you look through older art, and when I say old, I mean OLD. I'm talking Roman funeral portraits and onwards. Look at what was considered attractive for each era. Try drawing a portrait that matches each era. Look at as many faces as you can, both painted and photographed. An artist should absorb as much visual info as they can, not limit themselves. Variety is the spice of life.

Say what you want about artists complaining about dead end opportunities and shit pay but these pick mes are the fucking worst. He’s not even an artist and I can only assume how much he pays his artists to draw his godawful fetish bait 16 year old donut steal.
5 pages is not a huge investment, and drawing a comic is nothing like creating an illustration. You actually don't have to be amazing at drawing to create a compelling comic, a stick figure with a speech balloon is all you need.
If you have everything planned out, just start making panels and laying out the scene. What you're doing by not starting is re-reading your recipe, having your ingredients ready, but not starting until you find the right apron, or until it's the perfect sunny day for baking, or until you've found the right baking music playlist, or, or…just start baking. You'll only get better at comic making by making a comic, not perfecting your drawing skills.
Yes. And watermark your work in 3s, top/mid/bottom with transparency so it colors the area slightly different and it's harder to remove. Then do a normal full color watermark. I am not fucking kidding, after being online for 4 decades now, that artists need to label and mark and just fuck all to their digital art. It will never be seen the same as traditional art due to how easy it is to steal, so spare yourself from being found on Aliexpress. There's absolutely no good excuse to not watermark your work. I don't care if artists think 'it's ugly', okay. Sorry you were thrown into an AI algorithm because someone decided to upload an entire booru that had your pieces of art in them too. Or the people who roleplay OCs made crop just the head so your watermark isn't there. That's why you mark it in 3s.
I'm probably coming off way more salty about this as is, but this idea that marking up your work for YOU safety and propriety is not going to ruin your chances of being seen. DA has done watermark for years and people still used it. Twitter and other sites are no different from people having watermarks.

(Samefag) Okay, so hopefully this makes sense. You want the faded/multiplied/luminosity/overlay whichever you'd like to use
to be in three important spots that are easily stolen or edited on your photo. One touching the face, one touching the top of the head or hair and one around the mid/bottom. Or move it around so 3 makes sense in the form you made or scenery. Then you have one main watermark with your handle. These are all the same watermark, but 3 faded out so that editing it is a pain in the ass and they have to do multiple color matches to edit out your watermark which is more of a pain that needed for more people when stealing art.

I really fucking hate Celestial Fang/Archon of Flesh. Not because of their art or because of what they draw (mostly), but because I really love their art and absolutely hate them as a person. They're an enormous attention whore whose halfassed AAP antics and superficial edgelordery threaten to overshadow their genuinely fantastic art. It's not like I can actively search for artists who blend modern, digital, character-based art with classical art education, because the popular artists are the ones who polish turds into flat anime spadefaces.
Also yeah yeah 40k cringe moid fandom but Archon's somehow doing all this in a uniquely femalebrained style of cringe. Complete with the "muh sexualizing my own trauma to cope" crap.

I have to ask why do they bother even with the femboy larp? the character she draws and their function is the same as basically breastless women she even draws them as they are "bred and impregnated", at that point what's even the point of even pretending its two men.
And I know all fujos do this to an extent, but this is perhaps the worst case of this, I've ever seen.
As a side note, I'm really sick of her shilling her shitty gorefest 40k rapefic. It's actually kind of offensive to anyone who likes writing dark things because it's so painfully tryhardy and mediocre at best and yet she's got several big communities pogging out about how it's the DARKEST and most FUCKED UP thing they've ever read.
I know 40k has a terrible redditfag problem but christ alive people, have some fucking standards, and stop stroking her ego. Not only does she think she's a man, she also thinks she's a writer now.

The fact that she doesn't even attempt to pass makes her act laughable. Content aside she's a competent artist, so I don't know why she feels the need to do the most for attention. I'm guessing the 40K scrotes didn't care about her being a girl that likes Warhammer so now she seeks it by trolling them with her edgy Agony In Pink tier fics and art, then uses he/him pronouns so she has a personal army of troons to defend her. Tifs pass easier than 99.5% of scrotes without even touching hormones yet she can't be bothered to at least dress less like a 40k waifu. She's just a horny fujo who wants to live out her fantasy of being an uwu rapebait twink by hiding behind seven genders.
What's this obsession with genderspecials and trying to shock and out-edge everyone? It's like they're all in a race to skinwalk Gretchen Felker-Martin. I'm not offended by dark content, but the least they can do is make something good for once.

WH40K fandom doesn't deserve this
Yeah you're probably right that it's not worth it.

No, if it does then it’s buried deep.
i’m not sure if one could even exist since many nonnies are paranoid about having their digital footprint traced back to here.
ntayrt but is there really that much risk with posting studies or giving critique over unfinished art/art that hasn't been posted on social media?
I'm really asking because i can't imagine being able to tell who someone is from some gesture (but maybe i'm retarded)
Am i the only one that thinks this looks like very unfinished rendering with some blur effect or something?. The blood on the lower part looks so bad and the light effects on the armor look like a bunch of blots, the green wings on the background look kind of difuse especially the part closer to his hand.
Don't mean to insult anons taste though, the artist probably has better stuff and artist don't always have consistency all the time

This person is right about coomer anatomy genderswaps but twitter users in general are getting way too comfortable complaining about free fanart online when they aren't even artists themselves. It's really not their place to "criticize" anything, if you can even call this that. I saw another thread complaining how artists who only ever draw anime/genshit are now failing to draw the diverse characters from spiderverse and someone commented that looking at the art is "a hellish experience". Which is so fucking funny, like you can actually choose not to let some strangers fanart ruin your day and instead draw it yourself if your eye is that good. And in another qrt to this artwork where the person showed pictures of leanbeefpatty the artist even commented but didn't get a response. It just goes to show that they don't care about the person making art, to them it really is nothing but a picture on the net that they can talk about however they please because they happened to dislike it for whatever reason. It's a scary and strange disconnect
just saw this as well. A lot of popular artists defend the OP artist after seeing so many dunk QRTs became viral than the art itself.
Not going to lie I had mixed feeling at first because the original gender bender art really is not that good to defend, though I've been on twitter long enough to see QRT become a reddit comment cesspool. There's no win-win when posting on twitter no matter how good your art is, someone is going to act like it's free internet and talk shit at your work.
These dunks also get way more attention than any artworks that actually show what they talked about wanting, all they care about is complaining.
And yeah, even if I dislike the art myself I don't see the need to speak out about it like this. I think that OP also said something about not knowing how to draw muscles properly and on one hand you could say she should study before attempting but on the other she really doesn't have to do shit just to please others, if she ended up feeling satisfied with the piece despite not being able to fully realize the vision it shouldn't matter. The trend of people demanding to see certain things in art is really pissing me off, they can draw it themselves if they want it so badly.
I'm experiencing cognitive dissonance. Big butt scrotebait genderbends are annoying but being a sensitive cunt about art that wasn't made for you is worse. A genderbend doesn't have to look like a tranny to be correct. Miguel has the typical idealized superhero build so his female self wouldn't be out of the way for having the typical idealized heroine build. People on Twitter love to forget that sexual dimorphism is a thing and that women don't naturally develop muscles the same way men do, even if they were bitten by radioactive spiders.
Also, the OP of that tweet is a significantly less talented artist so it was at least partially motivated by envy.
Not a course but making comics and understanding comics by scott mccloud, you can find them online easily

There's a recent trend of female-ran meme pages making memes of text over art and sometimes it's nice and funny and relatable and sometimes it's just awful obnoxious BPD posting. But one particular account that's extremely popular never credits the artists she takes from and when anyone asks about artists for particular memes she won't reply. She has 40k followers btw. Why do some people have this weird entitled anti-credit mentality? It's really not that hard and if you have time to save a bunch of an artists' work off their page then you have time to @ them in your post.
A guy draws coomer shit and it just gets called coomer shit. A girl draws coomer shit and suddenly there's think pieces, infantilization of women, and a ton of "Anyways here's MY take" or "I fixed it" QRTs.

I hate anyone defending coomer art because you always end up with pickme's like this who come out of nowhere talking about how "well aksually I look like this irl so you're wrong!" Plus the woman QRTing in the pic can only draw the same, skinny, comic-book-style women and hasn't bothered to come out of her shell. Her men are diverse but on her side account she makes them tifs. I can't take her seriously because she just drew a skinny, genderbent Miguel to "piss people off" but it's unimpressive because it's the same style of woman she always draws, just with a different skin tone.
I think a large amount of people are defending Kamii at this point. If anything it worked out in her favor since it exposed more coomer moids to her art since it looks like they're the main ones defending her. >>1611712
yes it's annoying as hell. I've had to press not interested on so many similar tweets of people dragging random artists just for easy likes/retweets and half the time the artists getting shit on are complete nobodies. stuff like this just makes me miss deviantart. Yes there were unnecessary hate campaigns over trivial shit and insults disguised as critique but it was never this annoying. or maybe I just miss early fanculture in general. I don't even know if having more dedicated sites centering artists would help anymore since it would still attract the same kinds of people and they'd be constantly running to twitter/tiktok/etc to stir up drama.
I love how the female body is problematic
and harmful but the unrealistic moid body is ok because he's hot I guess. Tell me that looking at drawings of beautiful women triggers
you without saying it. I'm all for drawings of muscular women, but I will laugh and block if a clown tells me what type of bodies I'm not allowed to draw.
It’s honestly not new, when artists primarily posted on tumblr oversexualized fanart and bad anatomy was shit on frequently. It just takes twitter 5 years to catch up.>>1612628
It’s pretty cringe to see all the coomers white knight for her when most of the critics may have been rude, were right about her interpretation of female Miguel. It’s boring and cookie cutter. She even admitted she doesn’t know how to draw muscular women well. However, it’s better than most of the coomer art.

I saved this image off lolcow like a month ago and I stumbled on it again today. Does anyone know who the artist is or remember where the original post was? I wanna see more in the same style but I don’t want to search all of lolcow for the right thread to ask.
you can just google lens it nonnie
. The artist is marion bulot.
You're right and I'm pretty sure that the artists that actually want a community to share things in are already in private discords with their friends for that reason. Any artist-targeted sites or apps are doomed to fail because those who already have a private group won't use them and popular artists won't use them and terminally online people with no skills won't get enough attention there and might develop worse jealously that leads to more malicious callouts. The fundamental issue is that talking shit is quick and easy but brings a lot of attention to these lonely miserable people, while actually drawing something takes time and effort and won't yield the same results. Social media has made it too easy to talk to a huge amount of people and it gets to their heads very quickly>>1612829
Because those things are popular and get attention. So many genshin yaoi artists have 50-100k followers on twitter, it's really obvious why they keep doing it. It oftentimes starts with a mild interest and once the numbers rise it'll become almost impossible to let go of because original works will never get the same attention as their fandom slop, so why change. I hope they all manage to profit off it somehow at least

Yora is a pornsick woman so it’s expected her artwork would be shit. I was surprised she wasn’t a scrote based on how she acts and draws. The way she drew Miguel’s breasts, thighs and ass is laughable and the face is ugly as fuck.
For future reference, Yandex has a great reverse image-search implementation.
More than google etc.
Not saying this is the case BUT: maybe she claims to be a man because a lot of fujo get shit in recent years by rancid Western zoomers for "feTishiZinG" gay moids (which is an insanely stupid and psyop'd take) but this way she gets away with it and not too many people say anything.
Again I could be wrong.

You're not wrong. She always show off her "body count" and how much sex she has from "gay old men" (that are chasers). She always has to mention they're GAY to feed her TIF delusion.
Since this is an art thread and the TIF thread is on snow, I just remember Jennadelle.
I don’t think any artist should be harassed but I am really tired of “genderbends” just being coombait.
I also am posted at all of the people running defense over coom interpretations of characters while the same people stay absolutely silent when other artists get harassed for drawing race bends oc characters. “I care about artistic freedom” no I think you just care about boons, to be honest.

Literal mental illness. There are so many bad genderbends out there, I wonder what about this one specifically hit a nerve with these freaks

Back then it was her digital work, monster design and "emo" theme that caught attention. She then changed her style and then disappeared again.
Will never praise people for drawing moid-pandering coomer art out of spite. There were plenty of people with valid
criticism. I feel bad for the artist who got dogpiled because they don't deserve it, but I've seen people using this just to defend their shitty misogynistic art.

Not talking about that artist in particular, I'm talking about people like picrel.
afai understand, your artistree is just what you would link people wanting to comission you in dm's. Otherwise you need to advertise it heavily on other platforms in order to have anything done there. No one will find your artistree on their own. I see it mostly as something I can link to new clients, to filter out people that weren't interested in paying or following my terms anyway.>>1616563
that sounds interesting
nta and sorry for the spoonfeding question but have they announced any of the features the marketplace is going to have?>>1616579
It's always the same discourse with these ai-tards, don't engage please

How the fuck did anyone approve of a character design this awful and fundamentally flawed.

Is this vivziepop? She does a lot of busy edgy designs that 2000s scene kids would love. Tifs also love hazbin hotel especially for the androgynous gay stripper picrel because of course they do
>>1616782>Is this vivziepop?
Yes>busy edgy designs that 2000s scene kids would love. Tifs also love hazbin hotel especially for the androgynous gay stripper picrel because of course they do
Yeah the designs are shitty a lot of the times, but tifs also love them because a lot of zoomers love emulating 2000's subcultures, including scene
I still find her designs pretty jarring considering they COULD be good but i think viv 100% clutters them on purpose
File: 1687652354278.png (1.8 MB, 2400x1244, 1682446256618265.png)
i used to hate vivzie and would like those ''fixing hazbin hotel designs'' videos on youtube, but nowadays i respect her. We live in the most soulless era of western animation, where a character has to be a blob with a bean face to be cheap to produce, even indie internet animation has this samey/globohomo style that refuses to use sharp edges and bright colors, so hazbin designs actually feel like a breath of fresh air, and very unique. Honestly, if people want to animate vivizie's sparkledog oc's, let them. Funnily enough, unlike those billion dollar corporations vivzie actually works with animation studios, unlike CN/Nickelodeon/Disney who ship their blobs to be animated in Korean sweatshops.
agreed. People need to separate "personally don't like" from "terrible" designs.
It's hard to say the designs are objectively terrible because they reach their target audience. People that want adult cartoons or animations but not have the art style just be another futurama, simpsons, or family guy rip off like 80% of other adult animations. The design is also immediately recognizable as Vivziepop
A lot of shows on Disney/CN/Nick are just getting worse with art styles because they're just each copying from each other and/or Steven Universe but without what made Steven Universe unique or look good. It looks like the mandated corporate art style because most of the cartoons are the same genre with just different characters, settings and maybe some different themes. The stories can be good or decent like Owl House and Amphibia, but there is nothing to really be said about their animation or art style which is pretty forgettable and if you showed me any of the characters out of context I couldn't tell you what show they came from or who made them.
I'm the second anon and i just asked is if it looked kinda unfinished for anyone else idk what you meant.
I don't think she's self posting because anons complain about tifs they find attractive all the time

what the fuck is this comment? i think the colorism drama over drawing black or brown characters slightly lighter is retarded but i'm tired of seeing this type of stupid takes. the artist drew hobie from spiderverse and i guess people were arguing about his skintone. but they sound very entitled and make it all about race, turning white people yet again into the boogeyman. also it's not like asian people don't have their own history of racism and fuckups so that's such a weird thing to say, as if they're able to accurately draw black people solely because they're not white
the weirdest part is that by looking at this person's gallery it's literally filled with tons of drawings of white male celebrities (and hobie is like the first black guy they drew) and characters with very eurocentric features, like white people are not allowed to give you advice but you can obsess over them?
anon how did you know!! While cant say which character I had drawn fan art of, he's as close as Kiryu from Yakuza series and yet.
Is there any way to draw fan arts of just dudes chilling without immediately attract delusional fans at all, or it's just a pipe dream these days.>>1605525
thanks for the tip nona

There's a furry artist grifter I constantly see art from and bases by on my TL and it seems like every other week they are in DIRE financial hardship.
They also have two luxury cats (persian, purebreed) and talk constantly about renovating their RENTALS when they omg don't have money to eat/pay rent/lost their car/ got scammed by x y z company.
They also have several artist beware pages about them and their various usernames on not delivering on commissions.
AND EVERYONE IS BUYING IT FOR SOME REASON? I swear to god they've made like 15k in grifting alone in the past year. Maybe more.
I noticed twitter goes rabbit when over artists drawing non-white characters.
Honestly if you ever do get hate, don’t feed the trolls and don’t cultivate a following that would turn on you i.e don’t post political bs
NTA either but I assume anon meant First nation natives, doesn't have to be Native American or Native Canadian whom are often spoken about in mainstream media but also the Ainu in Japan etc etc. I get the appeal since I also grew up with manga like Shaman King, which has crazy good amount of positive culture appropriation.>>1617234
Go for it nona, have some fun researching and experimenting with the designs and symbolism etc. Don't let them gatekeep you from getting good at arts.
Agreed, though I understand anon's anxiety from the amount of skilled and mostly harmless artists being targeted over the years for cultural appropriation. It's good in practice to experiment and draw inspiration from other cultures but once you put it on Twitter Dot Hell, of course some cunts going to make you the villain of the day just because of the nature of the terminal online's constant feed loop on rage.
>>1617794>i don't want "accurate" depictions of race. i just want those people of race feel like… people and not carbon cut outs of what people demand them to be.
I get what you mean, but the topic is more nuanced than a demand for "accurate" depiction. I think we're all too desensitized to edgy caricature humors from 2000s era to not notice the harmful stereotypes most of us have internalized 'til today.
If you're really afraid of getting hate, just put that you're an x poc
or bipoc or whatever in your bio like so many others do kek. It's the "she/they" of online protection against twittards

Emilie Autumn being a cow again and trying to imply this AI generated art is painted by her.
