I can’t get over how bad that art is. The colors are too saturated. The color she used for the shading just looks all kids of fucked. The drawing is super stiff, and conveys almost no emotion.

Finally found the right thread.

What do you think about this art anons? I posted this on /snow Weeb Artists & Musicians and anons there told me that it isn't that bad and very Calarts kek

This artist is a graduate at Calarts btw and is specialized in character design and 2D animation. She made an animation intro for Taylor R. Don't disappoint me because I am hungry for some salt.

I don't know how Lavender Towne has made it this far. If she has a cintiq that's so wrong in terms of colour that she can colour skin GREEN, there's something very wrong. Because uh, I don't know if she knows this but the dark skin tones are nowhere near the greens. Absolute dingus.

So her cintiq managed just fine on every other color used except Percy's green skin? If she just admitted she didn't know what an olive skintone meant no one would care.

Viria is a very talented artist and I like her a lot!! It's great to see a fanartist rise in the ranks and become an official artist for the books she was a fan of!

Though she did get herself into some drama in the summer I think? Where someone was supposedly stealing her style and she got quite upset about it because the resemblance was so uncanny that people genuinely mistook the other person's art as viria's. Not sure if this is considered 'milk' or not but it's pretty old news by now.

I like him a lot personally. But to each their own and all.

Also Viria is a talented artist but like her stuff is just a Voltron Haikyuu hybrid why does she think she’s super unique. Maybe the other artist is ripping her off but she has a serious case of same face going so she can hop right off her high horse at any time.

No. 337716

>>337707 Yes but without commentary, you would just have a drawing video with music, if that. That would be less exciting. Its always good to know what the artist is doing and getting their insights on why there are doing what they are doing. There is really no other way to do it.

Yeah I think this is the person. You can definitely see the inspiration. I think Viria's salt was the fact they originally tried to play it off as if they had no idea who Viria was when it's pretty damn obvious it was inspired by her.

Though yeah I feel like it's just unnecessary salt to have haha. I don't watch Voltron so I can't say much about the 'Voltron Style' because to me it always looks more like 'anime but then I decided I started to like comics too' style.

No. 337768

>>337716
Oh sorry, what I meant was the drama, clickbait titles and commentaries that have nothing to do with the art being made. An example being the "my art teacher hated me" videos, the commentary has nothing to do with art creation or anything constructive but just petty bs. I hope that made sense!

No. 337782

>>337715
The thing about the 'Voltron style' I guess is that there are only a handful of expressions that are cycled through over and over so that can be pretty bland. And the mouth thing I completely understand it's the reason so many young artists put their smirks lopsided and into the cheekbones it makes no sense.

No. 337784

oh man if this is the voltron smirk then I am a huge offender of this whoops time to look into that.

Though I think part of the issue is when they don't do anything else with the expressions. Like it's really bland in that sense, but if your mouths are gonna be that exaggerated, I think you might as well exaggerate any expressions you decide to draw. But I always find that when you see them drawing any other expression it's just… very boring. Like if you're gonna do a dumb face just keep going, make that frown a real big frown or whatever, because if a smirk is the only time you're going to break the face for expression, that's just sad.

also it took me ages to notice that this character is doing that damn dreamworks eyebrows.

The most annoying part about Viria complaining is that the artist isn't even that bad. Generic yeah but they put some study in to achieve cohesive anatomy and nice colors. Viria is pretty huge already numbers wise she needs to chill the fuck out and learn to not be so petty and arrogant.

I think she got into a bit of drama before for calling a dark skintone 'chocolate' and 'delicious looking' and people were like "erm". And I'm starting to think maybe she's fishing for drama nowadays to keep her and her art relevant? But that's a shot in the dark anyway back to the milk.

Kelogsloops uses many professional grade supplies, he’s moved up to Daniel Smith and the like. And he’s a professional artist who has been exhibited - he SHOULD be using professional grade art supplies.
There’s a reason why professionals don’t use student grade products; they’re not lightfast, have filler, aren’t as vibrant, don’t produce as good colours from mixing, don’t have as many colours available, the list just goes on. So I’m not sure what your point is about people making a living off of art using professional grade supplies

That's not really true.

Using student paints for sketchbook work is fine, because it's probably never going to see sunlight, but for work that is going to be sold or hung up that's when using professional grade materials is necessary.

I don't think anyone's suggesting that professional grade materials is bad at all! But he uses student grade stuff in sketchbooks and some of his tutorial videos, which is nice to see because most of the people watching probably do have student grade equipment.

Like obviously nobody thinks professional grade materials are bad. That'd be stupid. They're professional for a reason. I think it's more like a "wow nice to see a person use student grade stuff without the whole 'omg i try student grade watercolours!! let's see if it works!' shtick that some youtubers do.

Also most watercolours are very lightfast, especially cotmans and van goghs. It will definitely last several years, unless exposed to bright lights (but even then, most paints even the most light fast, will struggle under too much light). People buy original copic art, even though that's probably the least lightfast thing.

No. 340036

Copic doesn't have that sort of information easily available, I had to actively seek it out and found out on a FAQ page. For the longest time I thought they were lightfast, but some colors will even fade in room lighting, so always scan your pieces if you use this medium.

I didn't say professional grade paints were bad, most of mine are professional quality, but plenty of student grade paints have the exact same lightfastness as their professional counterpart. Cotman, for example, none of the line uses fugitive pigments (unlike the professional line where some of them are fugitive). The biggest downfall of most student grade paint is pigment load; you're not going to get the same colour pay off. If you don't need that, going with the student grade is absolutely fine. As an example, I'll never need professional phthalo blue or green, they're extremely intense; it's easier to mix and use when it's the Cotman or Van Gogh phthalos, plus they have the exact same level of lightfastness. Meanwhile I only use professional grade yellows because otherwise they're too weak and are easily overpowered when mixing.


Your painting is more likely to fade if the person uses professional Winsor Newton paint without looking at lightfastness (tossing in Alizain Crimson or Opera Rose or Aureolin) than if someone used Cotman but knew nothing about lightfastness. Obviously someone using dye based watercolours or crappy student grade paint that isn't lightfast (usually craft grade really) should move onto lightfast versions, but plenty of 'student grade' are perfectly fine for professional use.

>>340099
Because it was an anon who said student grade isn't lightfast as a reason for not using it when they are lightfast. Those other factors are not important if the otherwise desired result is achieved (so it doesn't matter if it's a particular paint), while lightfastness is still important since that has an effect on longevity, something that needs to be considered, especially if it's sold.

I respectfully disagree. I honestly consider this an ongoing issue within the art community how everyone seems to adopt the same "woe is me" attitude.

Experiencing difficulties, having doubts, and being humble about one's artistic abilities are NOT the things I'm referring to.

I'm talking about those who publicly complain about something or another almost every single video, all while seemingly lacking any form of humility or self awareness.

This would be absolutely fine if these people were still in their teens, but these women are all in their late 20s or 30+.

So forgive me for saying this, but adults portraying themselves as constantly sad and seemingly demanding sympathy from their thousands of subscribers (many of whom are genuinely troubled teens) just isn't respectable or professional behaviour in my humble opinion.

Especially when they visibly have stable incomes and suportive, fulfilling relationships. Rarely (if ever) have I heard them sound grateful for the things they have.

I've tried to look past it because I genuinely LOVE the opportunity to watch skilful people create incredible things and talk about life, but I just can't handle ungrateful complaining on a daily basis.

Like most people on this planet, I have my own problems and daily struggles to just stay afloat. #selfblog

The cognitive dissonance in this, beach.

And here i thought it was bad enough when this edgelord decided to announce her dislike of Bob Ross.

I believe this was discussed very recently in this thread, but I just HAVE to give my 2 cents.

I believe her main criticism of him was how he "never painted any people!!" Or whatever. Except he did. In 8ne episode he painted a shadowy silhouette of a man by a campfire.

And, UNLIKE HER, Ross was very humble and honest about his shortcomings, particularly when it came to human portraiture.

He also invited others to help him teach it on his show because viewers requested it so much.


Point being disliking Bob Ross isn't edgy, you godamn lavender-thot.

He never claimed to be a master of his craft, he just wanted to share THE JOY OF GODDAMN PAINTING with the world, you irreverent child.

Not necessarily related to the context of this conversation, but I think it's truly impossible for famous people to be happy. Any kind of fame just seems to make people more and more miserable, perhaps because they're more exposed to other people's opinions and comments which brings on more problems in their lives whether insecurity/esteem/doubt related or otherwise. Everyone wants to be famous until they are, and they wonder why they're unhappy when they achieved their goal. However, the wealth is very nice and something they should be grateful for.

I used to like lavendertowne and i took her advise last year when i was first starting digital art, some of it helped me but i think she just does the same thing over and over again. And plus i hate how she used (i think she still does??) to shade with the color red so often, i sort of did that as well and now…i really dont like shading stuff with red anymore it just annoys me now

Im getting SO SICK of her style, she never draws anything else. You know what i want? I want her to draw something realistic for a change (even for just once!) NOT semi-realistic like that bullshit she did on "from realism to the ultimate cartoon" video but ACTUALLY REALISTIC.And i also hate how she frequently claims that shes "uwu im so different from the other artist because i draw creepy stuff" girl, your art aint creepy even when you try. Whenever she drew 'creepy' stuff i never found any of them to be creepy, her style cannot make anything geniunely terrifying

As for Emily's statement that Heroin can be used "recreationally" by "some people"?

"Heroin is one of the most addictive drugs available. No one intends on becoming addicted to heroin, but many people using it eventually find themselves unable to feel normal without it.
(…)

The side effects of heroin use get worse over time. The longer someone uses heroin, the more destruction the drug can wreak on the immune system and internal organs.

The risk for getting both communicable and noncommunicable diseases increases. Prolonged heroin abuse can also lead to heart, lung and liver disease.

Heroin SUPPRESSES BREATHING AND HEART RATES, so there is a high risk of fatal overdose.

Even a nonfatal overdose can cause permanent brain damage or coma."

this is a terrifying lack of improvement considering there must be a few years between these at least? I know everyone improves at their own pace etc but this is just…none at all.

No. 341743

>>341735
Apparently the original is from 2004… so 14 years of improvement.

TBH I used to be a fan of Danica Sills (one of the reasons I wanted to pick up watercolours), but after a while her art became so… bland. Like, she never tried anything new. Sure she draws nice hands but all the characters are essentially the same. The designs are always needlessly complex. And it's just very… boring. She stopped improving or changing so there's nothing new to see.

No. 341786

>>341665
I can see that there's an extent she improved in her technical ability, but the original is so much more fun and has personality (for a childhood drawing). While her new one might be prettier, it feels bland and characterless. I find this happens to a lot of artists; they focus on technical ability like anatomy or creating clean lines and colours, but they lose some of that personality as they get older/more technical. I feel like Danica actually has a lot of potential, she just doesn't branch out or take risks enough.

No. 341798

>>341786
>has a lot of potential, she just doesn't branch out or take risks enough
This. It's a problem that too many YT artists have, they don't branch out because they want their stuff to be "on brand" and perfect, so they keep drawing the same thing with the same materials over and over again. That's why I like Waffles, at least she tries out new materials and new subjects, even if they turn out wack. She's not perfect in any capacity (I really hate her qUiRkY sound effects), but at least she's trying.

No. 341799

>>341798
>>341786
Agreed. Danica keeps talking about 'taking risks' but she doesn't. She really doesn't. She needs to branch out with her style rather than just messing around with "inking with a brush" (because I watched that and it was pretty much exactly like her usual stuff but this time she inked with a tiny tiny brush instead of a micron.
It's sad that the original childhood drawing has more 'character' - the expression! You can see that the fairy has attitude even though it's not as well drawn as the newest one, but in her remake, she loses all sense of life. Like a lot of her characters and designs, it becomes a 'doll', lifeless and pretty. Which is sad because I really liked her at first but she does need to take risks.

No. 342121

>>341665
I've tried really, really hard to like Danica but her lack of improvement/attempts at improvement have driven me away. All of her art looks the same, it's lifeless and incredibly samey. I wish she would take a break from her usual routine of drawing girls and try something like animals or flowers, hell even try a different medium!

No. 342137

>>342121

The samey subjects and the way she speaks about her art is what drove me away but mostly because of how technical/clinical she speaks. I know that's just how some artists are but it's just boring as sin when it's every, single, video.
It's like all the pieces are there for change and improvement but there's just a bunch of disconnect. She stated several times she wanted to make like, a comic or some illustrated project but hasn't really let herself.

No. 342172

>>342137
Yes, the way she talks about her art is freaking dry and unpleasant to listen to. I wish she would just let go and let loose for once.

No. 342231

>>341798
I agree with you on Danica vs Waffles. Waffles really has been seeing a lot of drastic improvement imo. She's not everyone's cup of tea, but I don't think anyone can say she hasn't been improving. Her work is lively and fun, even if some people think it's ugly. I prefer that over pretty but boring.

>>341799
To be fair to Danica, she probably feels like she's taking risks. Based on how she talks, I get the sense that she's risk averse, but more analytical. So I think that probably contributes to her willingness to learn, but it being a slow process. Hopefully at some point she'll take bigger risks, especially with things like expression, posing, and subject. I think that she's unlike some artists who are so overly confident that they don't think they need to improve. I actually think she needs more confidence, simply because she obviously wants to improve, but I think she's just stuck or afraid of big risks, maybe a bit afraid of failure? Not to psychoanalyze or anything, that's just how it comes across when I've watched her.

No. 342234

>>342231
I think Danica wants to improve but won't branch out enough. She has a comfort zone, and even when she says she was trying something new, she often ends up reverting to her comfort zone.

I think that's an issue with being a youtube artist, I guess. She doesn't get the time away to make a bunch of ugly drawings or to do something absolutely out of her comfort zone. There's that analytical side of her that's very techincal, and the part where she feels she needs to make a perfect end piece for every video. Though I think rather than doing the same thing over and over again, viewers would actually like to see her make imperfect art to try and grow as an artist.

Same thing goes with mediums too, I feel like arttubers are afraid to try anything new with any serious intent. Sure they'll show videos of them fucking around with colored pencils or gouache but not with any intention of trying to improve. An example of this being Kasey Golden, she bitches about how colored pencils suck but she never goes out of her way to understand the medium. Maybe this is just me complaining and nitpicking, we all have our favorite mediums that make art more fun, but it's sad to see people who used to love art almost resent it and anything that has to do with it outside of making money.

Before I used to really dig her for her chill demeanor and her fashion style. Now, she's dating some dude who talks to her as though she's a child (major DDLG vibes going on), and posing herself as a good Christian with outstanding values.

She still puts on a front as though she's a poor art student, when in reality her and her family are well off, and her youtube cash is just extra spending money for her shitty preppy fashion and vacations. (plus her new apartment is crowded with junk, i feel bad for the cat).

really starting to feel like all these YouTube artists who went to art school only truly cared about having a certificate/degree in their hands rather than actually learning the fundamentals. Seems like they only worked on their art to get to a mediocre level at best (cuz it still sells) drawing with no true passion & shelled out all their fed aid & loan money at art school just to have the validation that they are “professional” artists so they can sell whatever they fart out on the internet & people buy it because they are under the guise that since these artists graduated from art school they are inherently providing quality content.

I kinda think Waffles was being too nice here. This kit seems like a bit of a rip off. I don’t know. I think the paper should’ve been thicker, and they should’ve been more specific with the intructions, especially mixing the paint with the water to get the exact shades on the example picture.

No. 344167

Maybe there's not as many of these videos as I think there is, but I really dislike how many of TwistedDisaster's videos are complete rehashes of other people's videos (primarily TheZodiacLord's videos). She always mentions that they are based on other people's videos but it rarely feels like she's adding anything new or interesting to the conversation. You could get the exact same thing from the videos she's basing hers off of.

No. 344171

>>344155
It also feels like Waffles can't make a video that isn't an art subscription box video. In this video she even includes the whole "unboxing" process and it feels exactly like a paletteful box video. I appreciate her attitude of experimenting and improving when it comes to art, but that unfortunately doesn't seem to extend to her videos which feel incredibly formulaic and repetitive.

Her logic doesn't even make sense… Real people have sclera. It's not pure white, no, but they're generally lighter and a different color than the skin around it.

Not coloring in sclera doesn't make it look "real" or "logical", it just looks like she's lazy and skipped a step.

I’ve found that art you tubers in general aren’t as critical with reviews as they should be. I have a feeling it may be their young audience, kids seem to take it very personally if you say something isn’t good quality - especially if it’s on the cheaper side. It’s really annoying when the YouTubed will be saying how it’s not good quality, hard to work with, and then they follow it up with ‘it’s not something I personally like, but it’d be good for other people if that’s what they like!’ Why do viewers take such personal offence to others disliking products

Am I the only one that gets put off by JuicyInks weird ddlg/uwu voice she puts on? It is also really fucking weirds me out that she calls her partner Mr Honiballs, and it only got weirder when I found out that’s actually his last name and not like I imagined a pet name for that time they put honey on his balls or something. I enjoy that she tries a lot and how enthusiastic/positive she is, but fuck me is her voice grating. Especially her giggles.

No. 344726

>>344717

I actually don't think she's putting on a voice at all. If you watch her vlogs or streams of videos I think that's… just her voice. Though you are of course allowed to dislike someone's voice.

I think she did address why she calls her partner Mr Honiball a while back because people asked, and I think it had to do with how they met and it being a screen name or something, so the name stuck. No idea if that's true or if I'm mixing it up (like how Rosanna Pansino the baking (or used to be baking) channel called one of her old roommates/partners by their screenname only) It's like if you met an online friend in real life after knowing them under their username for years and years, switching to their irl name could be weird.

Though I guess maybe it's just a thing they do. But yeah circling back to the point, totally understand the grating voice issue.

No. 344732

It just seems so forced. I know that’s how she sound in her vlogs and whatnot, but she wouldn’t be the first person to put on a voice 24/7. It sounds overly childish which I feel ruins a lot of the impact her often solid advice has.

I know people can't help their accents, but there's just something about the way that she talks, especially when she has a stuffed up nose, that triggers the shit out of me and makes it hard to watch her videos. Also, I know this doesn't have anything to do with her voice, but her long bouts of no posting was pretty annoying when I was still into her videos and subbed to her.

I feel like some of the offense that the viewers have is because 1) the majority of them are either kids or teenagers and therefore don't have much money yet 2) they put their "fun" money in other areas and don't want to invest in more expensive supplies. I think the issue is also this thing where viewers want quantity over quality because their favorite arttuber has a massive amount that they show off during work station tours, even though the majority of those tools are piss poor quality and were bought for reviews.

I know that Happy D Artist has been brought up in past threads, but the more I watch her videos the more I notice how much of a snob she is. The way she talks about her art making process and her perspective on oils just doesn't appeal to me at all, I feel like I'm being talk down to half the time when she's not bragging about how different she is because she uses oils and quotes Da Vinci. I remember in one of her videos she was complaining about how schools she start younger children out with oils, which I heavily disagree with. I don't think she's been around children long enough to know that mixing toxic shit like terpenoid would be a wise idea.

Lightfastness is a bit different because it takes a while to do a lightfast test on your own. All of the DIY onesI've seen have been conducted over a period of months so I don't expect arttubers to wait upwards of four months to a year or more before posting a review on a product. But it would be nice if more were just honest, rather than just not posting or promoting a product if it is bad or only promoting/posting about a product if it is good.

Lemia is kinda terrible at doing "negative" reviews. Her review of the Van Gogh watercolors was extremely nitpicky, even complaining about the fact that it didn't specify if it was halfpans or fullpans or how they didn't explain what museum conditions were.

The only art tuber I've come across who doesn't have an issue stating when a product is bad is Juicy Ink. She said the Arteza woodless pencils didn't workout for her and showed why and she recommended a hard pass on those artist loft copic knock offs.

The fact that she started out doing colored eyes (like with an iris) and then made them simplified black dots is really telling about her as an artist. She doesn't have a set style or anything in mind, she just picks whatever stylistic thing she likes out of a hat as she goes.

I really liked her earlier videos where she didn’t talk much, it seemed to start going downhill after all her mijello videos. I like her paintings a lot but her personality can be quite grating. I also lost a lot of respect for her in that video about her painting palettes when she gloated about bullying some shop owner into selling a vintage palette he stated was display only as he found it special. I cackled when I found out that the paint brand didn’t even exist back then so she spent so much money for no reason.

Nah anon, I'm just feeling overwhelmed with all the ads/sponsored videos from all these aesthetic art hoes who all seem to do the same ASMR voice. I feel like the majority of her videos are just a means of selling shit, much like how Minnie's videos seem to be predominantly ads for skillshare and computers. Also, given that she doesn't post consistently and when she does it's only for sponsors it just feels disingenuous. I get YouTube doesn't pay like it used to and sponsors are a big pay day for these artists, but it doesn't mean I can't find it annoying.

>>346403
Yeah, that was pretty scummy. I actually tried the mijello paints because she recommended them and they're just okay but nothing to write home about. Many of the colors that should be single pigments have weird combinations like their Ultramarine light and their Yellow Ochre. If I could go back, I would have just purchased a smaller number of tubes from M. Graham or Daniel Smith.

I seemed to have remember it wrong, Daler Rowney was around in the 1950’s so I may be thinking of another artist with that, but when a shopowner has a display only item that they don’t intend to sell don’t ‘convince’ them to do so. Brought to light how entitled and spoilt she is, the language used is mild but it’s not hard to imagine that it was just a lot of whining on her and her friends end and the shop owner caved in wanting them to leave.
Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy her videos and paintings a lot, but her persona is so dull that it’s not only annoying but I don’t see it to be a stretch that her asmr voice isn’t put on and she legitimately drawls each and every syllable.

I saw this year's Rapunzel look like her in the face I felt like I might be right about it.

at this rate minnie won't be done with huevember until march. she really pushed the boundaries of creativity and mood by painting two forms of water with her blue palettes. much artiste. so novel.

in all honesty she sounds depressed af and i bet the reality of being a full time stay at home artist is a far cry from the exciting life she expected it to be. she seemed a lot happier and more creative when she had a part time job that got her out of the house and regularly interacting with other humans that aren't her bf/family.

mini (ha!) sperg incoming
i noticed a change in the tone of her videos after she talked about reading this book mindfulness and the art of meditation (it was from this year so i guess she didn't finish it lol) which is all about shutting up the inner critic and enjoying the process of making art. she seems to be obsessed with that mindset now and has deeply retreated into her comfort zone of buildings and impressionist-ish landscapes and working smaller and smaller (ha!) despite saying in her 2018 art goals video that she wanted to work bigger and more experimental. she's built up this persona as an authority on creativity and productivity but none of that is reflected in the relatively little work she has produced this year. she had so much potential and opportunity to be great but her fear of being uncomfortable with her art and potentially producing something ugly and non-aesthetic has stuck her in a hugbox.

No. 347775

Piggy backing off of her rant, why do so many less than stellar artists have huge audiences? I get that marketing is key, but surely people are sick of seeing the same pretty girl portraits done in copic/watercolour/digital, that are done in one of five styles. It seems that the less experimental or daring the artist the more likely they are to gain a huge following, which I would understand if it’s just art consumers but the huge bulk of their following will be other artists

Is there even any chance if you’re not a mediocre illustrator that never leaves their comfort zone of women?

No. 347783

>>347775
It’s because the channels that get a massive following are personality based channels. No one is following them because they think they are such magnificent artists. Its because they like the person behind the art. If you check comment sections you see that there are a lot of “I like you but I hate your art” and I think that’s because most people honestly feel that way

I've seen plenty of mediocre artists have 1000+ followers. It's crazy! But they tend to be young artists and they tend to be in fandoms so that tends to boost their active followers counts.
But usually if they're really into producing that mediocre art, their skills skyrocket like mad and then they stop being mediocre and start being good.

Though yeah pretty damn sure complaining about not getting followers or likes on twitter is kind of petty. Social media isn't kind to artists and honestly looking at how many mediocre artists get famous on youtube we gotta stop thinking followers/popularity = good art

Speaking on social media in general, I think it has a lot to do with attention spans. The way most people thumb through IG and Twitter, they're looking for something immediately interesting that they can look at for 5 seconds, like and move on with their lives. Interesting/experimental/scenic pieces are usually only valued by other artists, and other artists are extremely picky about who they like/follow, since they're surrounded by so many other artists.

I cant believe im saying this but Creepshow is worse than Holly when it comes to a few things. Holly is super lazy and tries to cut so many corners its ridiculous but this girl I say is worse. Like she doesnt even TRY to make her art better and push herself just a little bit. Most artist if they see something is off in their work will try to edit or redo it to some capacity. Creepshow doesnt she just leaves things as is and is like "im too lazy". Holly would do wonky ass hands and feet, but at LEAST they were there. Creepshow just REFUSES to do anything that takes little work.

And what adds to her lazy entitlement is the fact she browses and occasionally post on lolcow. She thinks just because she is on here it makes her one of "us" and she can act as callous as she pleases. Like a ImNotLikeTheOtherArtists.

It’d be different if someone was stealing her OCs or storylines or whatever. But she just bitches about people “copying” her style. A style that’s not even that unique to begin with.

So I just got through watched TwistedDisaster's latest video she uploaded today and while I thought the message of the video was actually pretty good, I can't help but feel she was embellishing a bit as far as where she is with her life.

When she got to the part where she was talking about how her ex friends were depressed and stuck in a rut not going anywhere in life with money and whatnot, I can't help but feel she wasn't realizing that she got it easy with having a husband who was able to get a blue collar job and doesn't mind her not working a traditional job where they can live fairly comfortably(?) I mean, I don't know too much about her work and I'm wondering if she really gets that many commissions to have enough money to pay large expenses.

Like don't get me wrong, it's cool that her & her husband have a dynamic that works for them but I think Michie is missing the memo that she's in a lucky spot of even being able to devote lots of time to her self-employed business whereas others aren't as lucky. But maybe it's just me lol.

From what I understand she primarily does paypal commissions and sometimes opens them up for da points that will transfer to the same amount.
She also has about a billion commissions in her queue because she will open up for commissions, make everyone pay as soon as they order, let her queue get ridiculously long, and then not start on most people's commissions for a long-ass time because she has too many commissions and personal pieces to get through first. She also regularly does on-stream commissions because the way she has her system set up means she doesn't have a regular influx of cash; she gets her cash in large bursts when her comms are first opened. Once she runs out she has to do stream commissions, which means she isn't working on her regular commissions.

I also really dislike that her way of explaining the whole homeless thing went from "we're going to be homeless" to "we were homeless for three days" to "we were homeless for a month" in this most recent video. They really did think that they were going to be out on the street and didn't know where they were going to stay for about three days, but they were then offered the garage. They never were homeless but I was perfectly fine with her saying "nearly homeless" or "I thought we would be homeless." I guess that wasn't dramatic enough for her though.

TwistedDisaster and her then unemployed fiance were living in the in laws house for over a year after being asked to move out multiple times. Instead she did artist alley in Texas, got married, bought Chinchillas, ect. Never got a job beyond doing commissions cuz she's done retail boo hoo way too hard instead let me free load on people's couches for years until I've 'made it' (which is her now husband getting a job that supports them both). She's 25. She made a video crying to her followers because her in laws finally couldn't take their excuses anymore and were planning to house an in need homeless recovering addict and Michie took absolute offense to this because SHE was being forced to become 'homeless' herself! It was so pathetic and cringey and I still haven't recovered my distaste for this entitled autistic little brat. Sorry for the salt but I do commissions on the side with my JOB that doesn't require I free load on someone else because art doesn't pay for rent. It's not an excuse Michie. And now she laments her 'hardships' now that she's 'made it'. Give me a break.

Jeez really? I do commissions on the side and while I don't get billions, I make sure to get them done as quickly as I can without creating a huge backlog. I just feel that can lead to problems and having angry customers. I actually went to visit her commission price guide as I've actually never seen it before to see how much a commission runs from her and um… All I can say is that people are willing to pay that much even for a lineart?

This is definitely down to preferences because I personally think her art isn't worth that much but obviously there are people who think otherwise so can't mess with sucucess. The only thing I like about her art is her coloring. But I just can't seem to get into how she draws characters, everything looks so… Rounded? I'm not sure.

And yeah, I mean if she just said she was "nearly homeless" or "Close to being homeless", I wouldn't have a problem with that because that was true but in the video, she said she was homeless (if I remember) and that's what annoyed me because they weren't, they were just living in a smaller space but again, it's better than wandering the streets.

>>348976
Like I said, it's cool that her husband doesn't seem to mind since he makes enough money for the both of them now but I just wish she was more self-aware that her situation is a rarity, especially in this day and age. If she didn't have Cody, she wouldn't have been able to be a self-employed artist. She's putting lots of stock into her book that's supposed to come out this year and all I can say is I wonder if it'll be any good.

And I mean, art can pay for rent but only if you're actually good and in demand (or draw lots of porn lol I've seen some adult artists make bank lol). I just don't think Michie is that much in demand and she says she doesn't draw porn so this is why I thought she was embellishing a bit.

Well someone can be considered homeless if they are doubled up, meaning they are unable to maintain their housing situation and leave with a series of friends/extended families.

Her art is honestly unappealing when she rounds it and makes them all chibis. Her adoptable video shown a pretty decent style that I wish she would bring back.

TwistedDisaster's art has clean linework and shes pretty good at getting commissions out there but I think its something about the coloring that makes it looks weird,maybe shes shading with black or not complementary colors?

Slight derail but I dislike this attitude that criticizes artists for depicting unnatractive people as tumblr-y or pandering.

And I agree, same with a slight red tint on the extremities. Of course amateurs and kids take it pretty extreme and get picked on for that, but that's the same with anything.

I've seen on the ugly Tumblr art kiwifarms thread explaining that also there's a reason why faces reach a certain uncanny valley - exaggeration or over detailing of facial features - mouth, nose and eyes. If you exaggerate the size of the eyes (but keeping stylised) and leave the mouth and nose simple and relatively small, you have anime face, for example. Young artists trying to find their style usually exaggerates and over details two or the three facial features altogether. Most of them come from Tumblr though, either be a style choice they purposefully want or just copying everyone else because diverting from the traditional cartoon/anime pretty face is hip and cool.
IMHO waffle's stuff aren't tumblr-ish because there's no fake woke intentions there. Her dark skinned characters are original content, not a bastardised version of white Japanese characters or pulled out of the ass headcanons.
The faces she draws, in my opinion, have a charming to it. The classical beauty seen in art (old and new) has everyone with a calm smile or expressionless face (see Instagram). She draws people with a big ol' smiling showing teeth. While some of the faces she draws rubs me off in the wrong way, I can see she's genuinely trying to grow as an artist while bringing something uncommon and not trying to pass herself as superior for drawing diversity (that is the intention of a lot of Tumblr artists)

I muted the audio cuz I don't care and just watched her paint. I used to get a kick out of her edgelord schtick but now I just find it annoying. She has no understanding of color theory and it's obvious she's just picking random colors she thinks will go together but there's no cohesive undertone to tie them together. Muddy ochre for skin, cool violet hair, warm tone purple shadows and lips, mint background with lavender text….yuck. That's an eyesore. Girl, I know you're gonna read this, so pick 3-4 colors before you start painting (yellow/skintone, magenta, blue) and blend all your colors from those hues only, do not go all willy nilly with the color picker if you actually want to improve. Also, gray/muted tones are your friend when incorporating bright pops of high saturation color.

The thing is, she's not wrong. "It's our personalities." It absolutely IS their personalities, ability to market, etc. The reason people are drawn to these mediocre art youtubers is because they'd rather watch someone make edgy jokes or goof off while drawing instead of watching an educational tutorial.
Some words that stuck with me from a professional was the importance of networking. He told me he made it further than his far more talented colleague simply because he was pushier about his art.
The squeaky wheel gets the oil, unfortunately. Skill doesn't matter on youtube if you don't have that quirky attitude. But, in that case, do their fans really care about their art?

Does she even interact with other art youtubers? Like, honestly, the only reason she got popular is because she rode the Holly drama train and made a couple mediocre videos about it. And the majority of the art Youtube avoid Holly like a leper, so I'm not sure how long she thinks she can ride the drama gravy train when there's hardly anything to talk about anymore. The main way art youtubers leverage themselves is to talk to, collab with or befriend other artists to keep each other relevant. Creepshow just talks about other artists like she knows them, and acts like she can speak on the topic with any authority when really she just the peanut gallery.

Maybe she thought she could wiggle herself into Holly's spot because Holly's gone quieter lately and that she could pick up on some of that "edge" to get people's attention.

Either way you slice it, it's a pretty pathetic strategy and it isn't sustainable.

Creepshow, yes, you. You cant be both a lolcow farmer and a edgelord artuber at the same time. Pick one or the other (or none preferably), because all its gonna do is bite you in the ass. Soon no side is gonna respect you (lolcow already doesnt, but you know.)

>but I think Creepshow has more awareness.
This aspect is kind of what makes her most insufferable to me though. It's like anyone who has awareness and is blatantly honest about doing something strictly for views or because they were lazy, etc. They think it gives them a pass from criticism and makes them unlike "all the other youtubers/online personalities" because they're real and they're admitting it, but they're doing nothing to add any sort of creativity to their work or amending their lazy habits even if they realize they do these things. Yeah, you can acknowledge it to have "real" points (in the same way that some people preach the whole "I'm not mean, I'm just honest/blunt!" No you're still a raging asshole and very insufferable, you just don't want to be called out for it or think you're above it because you 'speak your truth'), but it's pointless as fuck if you're not going to do anything about it. A little off topic but, it's kind of why I don't like youtubers like Ryan Trahan. They're not genuine as it is, but try to play the "Yeah I did this for views/I want views/etc." angle and it comes off as even scummier. I know that inherently, anything a person does (especially if it's online) IS for attention, and there's nothing wrong with that, but it really just makes it come off like the ONLY reason you're making videos or doing art is to get attention or praise and not because it's something you also enjoy and want to spend your time doing. And why would I want to watch someone spend time doing something they feel obligated to do, just to watch them regurgitate the same ideas for videos or continue drawing the same shitty stuff with the knowledge that it's shitty just because they're "relatable" for it?

It's not just "she's shockingly grotesque". What's interesting about jenny saville's paintings is that they portray the female form- but it's the female form as it exists in day to day life, and it is grotesque, but the shapes and colors are beautiful at the same time. It's beauty through ugliness, and this compels the viewer to reconcile their preexisting views about what's beautiful with this disturbing, yet mundane human body

Creepshow art is actually alot better than the other ranting youtubers in her category. The difference is that her bitter attitude is actually part of her personality (i can see this from looking on her insta for a few minutes) and she doesnt try to hide her pessimism. It is true that since her bad commission experience video went popular shes put on some kind of more forceful persona but I think thats just her way of trying to acknowledge her audience.

As emily sugarfruit, she reviews anime, dances in a bikini, and did a whole video naked in a bathtub. She also wrote an entire comic based off of one piece so she could fuck the main character.
Not to mention bully Other female reviewers and tell them they weren’t hot enough to be as popular as she was.
That was what she did on heroin.
She then got clean, started to be a cam girl and then started doing storytimes, which she said she created and now gets mad at any other youtuber who tries.

The level of line looseness adds to the dynamic of the piece imo.

supply and demand, if the artist has that many people clamoring over wonky looking chibis at 45 bucks then good for them. i'd never pay that, but i wouldn't pay for a lot of expensive artists because i don't like their art, regardless of price. they might have people queuing down the block for it. example, holly brown started taking commissions for 20 a pop and i would never pay any amount for her stuff, but she has like 10 people on her waitlist right now because, in spite of my opinion, there's demand for her work.

generally, the more demand there is for your work, the more you raise your prices. some people just highball it because they think they're worth that much (and they may be right or wrong), but a lot of the time the prices are due to the demand. you might look at a shitty MS paint chibi and think it's shit but there might be 20 people in that person's inbox frothing for one.

Like so many do like below minimum wage prices like it’s hurting u if you do a $5 chibi and it takes you more than an hour. Frankly I think $45 is too low, I wish artists would remember the time/pricing ratio and that people would remember art is a luxury item, no one is forcing you to commission shit when you can’t afford it. Plus having a higher price as an artist also weeds out people who won’t take u seriously since people will pay premiums for good art or their favorite artists

not true. people lowball when they're new because they think it will net them more sales. artists get more annoyed when they lowball because it makes buyers want them to lowball as well.

I can't speak for others but my comment(>>351405)wasn't so much about the pricing as much as the lack of effort. I agree that art pricing should match the demand and if a less skilled artist somehow manages to create a high demand for their artwork then they're completely justified in charging as high a price as people are willing to pay.

But there's a difference between low skill and low effort. The former is fine but the latter is what bothers me. I don't think it's that unreasonable to expect people to put effort into a piece they charged money for. I'm not even talking about having amazingly detailed rendering or anything like that. Just basic stuff like coloring within the lines.

No. 351433

>>351431
I don’t know anon, I’m pretty sure that’s what they’re aiming for more so than low effort. To me it looks like it’s supposed to be messy and sketchy, hence the rushed lines that look more alive than polished lines, that haphazard colouring goes much better with the overall messiness than precise colouring would. Again, this seems to be what they’re advertising and people want it, rather than they produce very clean artwork normally and then sold an unfinished art piece

wow i really didn't know this kind of site existed until one of my followers sent this to me but, yeah i understand how i could come off as being pushy to the storeowner but it really wasn't like that, when the store owner told me that the palette wasn't for sale I immediately respected that and just took pictures of it on my phone and got ready to purchase some other art supplies but he started talking to my friend in Turkish and my friend told me he would be willing to sell it to me since he could tell i loved the palette so much and that the shopowner said i had reminded me of him when he was younger. He also ended up inviting me to do a workshop at the store next time I would be in Istanbul after I showed him my sketchbook I had on me. I just really didn't think people would perceive it as me bullying the store owner …
and also about the whole anger towards sponsored videos, I think it's super understandable that it seems like thats just the type of content I and others make nowadays but I think it's important to be empathetic. I'm a full time student working three other jobs other than YouTube so when there's an opportunity to be sponsored, especially from a fine, unproblematic, and actually helpful brand or company, it helps a lot. Art Youtubers really don't come across a lot of opportunities to be sponsored or get paid to do certain videos like beauty/gaming channels do since we're such a niche community. Again, I can see how annoying it can be for each video to be perceived as an ad but talking about a company for 15 seconds and then going on with the rest of the video to help pay for tuition is something I'm really grateful for. And I always urge my viewers to check out my instagram for more art content outside of Youtube because that's the only thing I have time for when I'm in uni.
Don't mean to sound overly defensive and I get where you all are coming from but I think it's just important to hear the other side too since damn this thread is really scary haha.

(p.s. can't really do anything about my dull personality though, i'm just a really private person who would rather have my videos be more instructional than in-your-face entertaining. also uni + work has wittled me down to a skeleton)

People need to stop expecting artwork to cost the same amount something from Target would cost, it’s not mass produced and you don’t NEED it. If you can’t afford someone’s commission prices, don’t buy it, people shouldn’t expect others to underprice themselves just because they find a sum ridiculous.

Unpopular Opinion: I do not understand the hype over kelogsloops. I appreciate his videos way more than most YouTube artists and it’s obvious he’s skilled at the art he does but it’s literally the same faced girls with eurocentric features being swaddled by gold flowy shit against a blue background.

I feel like it really comes down to the clientele. Yeah I think some people may overcharge for their stuff like I mentioned with Twisted Disaster's prices but if there are people actually paying that much for their art then I guess what works, works even if you don't personally believe it's worth that much.

Like for example, say the person who made that art was complaining that she gets a lack of commissions then yeah, it could just be she's delusional and may need to decrease her prices a bit to get more sales.

Maybe trying doing quick sketches of people that you see outside, since having to work fast makes it hard to make people "pretty."

utau is a program that's sorta like vocaloid except you can make your own voice sing in the program. As such there's a shitton of utau out there some good, many terrible and a lot of people think they're better than the next person for this or that reason

there is so much elitism regarding voicebank recording methods, what mic to use, how many pitches to record, design, tuning.

This is going back years, but I remember DA either was getting really strict on erotic art or attempted to ban it entirely, so a large portion of the community moved to SheezyArt (rip you furry website, you) which then eventually banned erotic art itself, which resulted in a different website being created….

This all went down over a decade ago, so my memory of the events are spotty. I also remember a lot of drama going on with the dA community itself but I couldn't tell you what happened besides one of the people who founded it ragequitting.

Oh man Sheezyart, that's taking it back I remember that place not lasting (or maybe it did and my perception of time is warped because it was long ago) but I remember they tried to revive it numerous times but just couldn't seem to gain the traction for support. The community by then was all fractured and migrating to other websites that looked promising.

And through all of it, the ones that managed to stick around were dA and FurAffinity, lmao. FA didn't surprise me, furries are some of the most loyal fans (for better or worse) and every year or so has a new outbreak of drama itself causing like 2% of its user base to migrate to some slick looking fa alternative, but it never seems to catch on. so people keep crawling back.

Pillowfort is another option though it's still in beta. I managed to grab myself a key and check it out. Seems alright. does anyone else have any opinion on it?

I haven't been on it in a long time, but one thing that helped me a lot was joining groups. Especially those where you have to make an OC for said group.

I'd get like 100 new followers every time I submitted my character sheet to a new group and then a dozen more every time I made artwork for it. A bunch of group members would end up drawing my OCs too without me even asking them too, which also generated a lot of traffic back to my account because when they submitted their pieces people wanted to check out the person that had been responsible for creating said character.

I really enjoyed being a part of that community so I was very friendly to other members, which meant that I would sometimes get invited to join more exclusive groups. Those more exclusive groups had bigger followings because they were mostly compromised of artists that were more popular than me, which meant that joining those got me more followers than I'd get from joining a regular group. Also since those popular artists were often times more skilled than me it made me want to work harder at drawings because I didn't want my art to look crappy in comparison to theirs.

A lot of people seemed to be intimidated by OC groups in general because they assume it means you have to RP, but really a lot of people don't really RP at all and it's mostly a bunch of random head-canons. Or sometimes people will want to "RP" in drawing form rather than writing (kinda like working on a joint comic)

Have since stopped doing that because it was a huge time commitment and also a lot of the good friends I met on DA started leaving the site so it just wasn't all that fun anymore.

No. 352239

I dont think anyone should rebuild a da account at this point the site has crumbled a lot even though da has tried to crack down on fetish art it still pops up on the main page so no one checks the main page anymore they're in the process of making it updated but its been so long since they last update the look of the site the whole userbase is kinda fragmented,, like people enjoy the update but a lot of users dont like it (the only way to even view the update is to have a core account)
the only way to 'get noticed' on da lately is to post to like 100s of groups and not many people watch groups for art anymore,,
ive tried posting every day and adding tags and just wasnt noticing any improvement in my engagement,,
if there are art theives on da the only people who can make a report against them are the original artist and sometimes they dont have da accounts so its a pain in the neck to make a da just to get rid of the stolen artwork,,

I'm not getting a sense of flow with this picture. My eye just kind of goes all over the place with it, it may be that it's too cluttered and there's too many lines going in too many directions.

Like, if the bunny were outlined more clearly or the trees didn't have such stark black (like if it were more faded/washed into the bg) there'd be a better sense of distinction, but here everything seems a bit too saturated. My eye goes right to the yellow on the right. The shadows on this are clunky and don't help, but that isn't the first thing that I find that's amiss, it's the lines.

more revo milk i literally never see anyone talk about because it's kind of old (these years seem to be wiped from tumblr or something, but he went by rebellioustroll at the time)…. his old art style was a direct ripoff of a japanese artist who went by "uracata" on tumblr and he even lied about being friends with her.
here's revo's side http://revolocities.tumblr.com/post/132777144066/concerning-some-issuesplease-read
but uracata used to have an entry on her tumblr detailing the events differently and how she was still getting harassed like a year+ later by his friends and fans

i also remember, from when i used to follow him, at some point he flipped out on a follower for making a pixel sprite version of one of his drawings as a gift to him and instead of responding kindly or thankfully he flipped out on them for copying his art lmao. really ironic considering he was copying at the time…..

The magic with modern DA is to just watch artists whose work you like. You can do this by joining groups. I would say just use the browse feature but yeah, you'll mostly just see the MS Paint stuff because it's mostly done by kids who have all the free time to spend constantly uploading new pics whereas the actual stuff you want to see can get buried hence why groups are a great way to discover new artists. That or trying out the thumbshare forum.

It was Tumblr first then followed by Patreon lol.

I feel like another sole reason was that a lot of people who used the site back in the day were middle schoolers to teenagers and at the time there weren't many competing sites. Fast forward to the late early 2010s and Tumblr gets more recognized followed by Twitter, Instagram, and Patreon and the artists who got their start on DeviantART during the earliest years eventually migrated to Tumblr, Twitter, etc.

It’s not just the light source, I also thought the parachute was weird hat or something because warm colors will move forward in an illustration while cool colors push back, so it doesn’t look to scale if the parachute belongs to the bunny and by cropping the tree it looks like a weird branch. If she pushed the parachute back by making it lighter and the bunny warmer, it would work better but it’s a poor understanding of color temperature

Why is it that every time I see an artist complaining about someone stealing their art style it's always either really shit or, if it is good, it's really generic? Saw someone retweeted onto my feed complaining about it, but their art really didn't look any different from any other semirealistic painted anime. Ooh, the hair doesn't have lines this time..!

I favor hot press, because I like drawing on smooth paper for the inital sketch, and I hate the smudging cold press bumps tend to give me, but lately I've been using cold press just to get used to it. I do like the overall texture. If the paper has SOME tooth but not too much it's fine.

>>352912
i use the fluid hot press, but only the 100% cotton kind. It seems to work well though my problem with that brand is some of the blocks have glue that's too strong and i run the risk of ripping the paper no matter how slow I go trying to pull it away.

I got used with drawing and painting on cold press texture. Canson XL is a good brand imo, I got used with the way it absorbs water.

I don't have much experience with cotton rag paper, because an arches pad cost an arm and a kidney here where I live. I managed to get my hands on some clairefontaine cotton rag cold press back in my exchange student days, it's a good paper and CF is an underrated brand. Their quality is as good as canson/arches and it's comparatively cheaper.


The only hotpress paper I've tried was a cellulose hanemühle gummed pad and the way the paper soaked the water felt weird to me. I personally think it's better for a beginner to start with a fine grain cold press and then afterwards switch to hot press if they want to make more illustrations where you need to achieve fine details precisely without the hindrance of paper texture. To the complains about pencil sketch smudge, try switching your sketch pencil to a colored one, like a prismacolor col-erase or even a cheap watersoluble colored pencil.

I used the canson moulin du Roy rolls. They’re a bit on the pricier side since it’s bulk but if highly recommend them to anyone who’s serious about watercolours and produces a lot of paintings. They’re 300gsm 100% cotton, so they can take a lot of water without buckling, and since there’s 9m of it you’re set for a long time. To answer your question though, my favourite is rough, I live the huge amount of texture it gives, only issue is that it’ll eat up any pencils you use on it

I think anons here are way too quick to dismiss artists if they don’t believe their work is varied enough. You guys seem to be hyper focused on this one detail, that you’re ignoring the very simple reason why established artists tend to stick only a handful of themes/subjects - it’s integral to their artistic voice. Artists are recognised for thei stylistic choices; linework, colour palettes, overall mood, subjects, and so on. I know most of you are probably pretty young, and honestly most likely intermediate, but having consistency in your work isn’t the end of the world. If you vary too much you’ll end up being a jack of all trades while a master of none.
Linked video is a good example, you guys were going on about how he isn’t good because his work is consistently the same themes and subjects, but objectively speaking he’s obviously skilled. He’s found his voice and is applying a wealth of technical skills and knowledge to convey his ideas which result in very pleasing finished pieces so I have absolutely no idea what you guys are even nitpicking at this point.
I know this is a gossip site and shouldn’t be taken too seriously but you’ve created an echo chamber in this thread that you find to be gospel while none of you seem to have any artistic knowledge outside of the basics. I like sperging out here and there too but it gets really tiresome of reading the same nitpicks over and over and over again

Let people vent. This isn’t the place to nitpick what people can complain about and its definitely not the place to talk shit about the other anons.

I like the artist, but their work hasn’t progressed much the last year, and maybe pushing themselves out of their comfort zone could help. Maybe other anons complaining about it have a point.

That’s obviously not what I’m saying. I even said in my original post that established artists will not vary too huge an amount - and I don’t mean that they all do bust up pretty girl portraits, but everything they do will be of the same flavour. Yeah, once people get further in their art careers they tend to focus on one area, whether that be food , animals, portraiture, highly illustrative work, still life’s, and I don’t see how this is a controversial thing to point out. You’ll never get good if you try to do absolutely everything, and before you put words in my mouth I don’t mean that they only ever draw one thing, but an abstract artist shouldn’t be expected to vary into hyper realism. It irked me when anons went on about how the artist I linked consistently creates floaty ethereal pieces when that it is quite obviously his stylistic choice and one that he still improves on
You keep telling me to chill but you’re also clearly annoyed enough by what I’ve said to keep replying to me so why am I apparently not allowed to express my annoyance.

I understand what you mean and it does make sense for an art exhibition to have one only theme in common (for example I went to a Divine Comedy themed Dalì exposition, so all artworks exposed were only Divine Comedy scenes) and it also makes sense for an artist to keep one consistent style. The problem comes with drawing the same subject over and over all your life.
Contrast the artist you posted with someone like, dunno, Van Gogh to make an immediate example.
Van Gogh experimented and then came out with a consistent style, but subjects varied. One time it's a pair of shoes, then a bearded man, some flowers, a landscape in the night. Not all of his paintings are a vase of sunflowers just slightly different

No one gets better by constantly hopping from one thing to the next, I don’t understand why so many people seem to have an issue with even an artist using the same medium for the majority of their pieces

Honestly drawing the same subject and theme is a common problem with youtube artists. If you like the art you’re not going to mind if its repetitive, but its still valid criticism.

My criticism of the "great style debate" is aimed at beginner/young artists because they tend to hyper focus on a single subject and style and hold on to it to their determent. Exploring outside of the comfort zone is necessary for both creative and technical growth and I do not expect to ever see that process (it's usually ugly and that's okay), but I can tell from looking at the work they do produce and share if they've gone through that process or not because it shows in their technical ability.

Kelogsloops is a great example of an artist that is technically developed to the point where he can make stylistic choices to capture moods/feelings with his subjects. His choices may not be everyone's cup of tea but he does have the skills to branch off in a different direction if he chose to.

Spitcell/Creepshow are example of artists clinging to their "style" for dear life because they've integrated that style into their identity and the technical development has stagnated and it's these types that I have an issue with.

I guess what makes his work different from, let's say, Danica's work, is the movement, color palette in that he uses warm and cool colors to separate figures and give the impression of distance, and emotion that his figures give off. When I compare these two artists, I genuinely don't seem much change in Danica's work from a couple years ago til now (still the same wet on dry technique and liner pens), while with Keloog's he's moved from a more free flowing style to a more control, purposeful use of his paint. While I agree that we as artists should always strive to hone our skills and make an effort to do better with each painting we create, I think it's still pretty impressive what he has accomplish thus far and how his art seems to really speak to people. If he keeps up the momentum I could see him evolving and going in a different direction, I would like to see what he could do through the incorporation of various animals.

All the style talk can lead to a different argument: some artists, those that live from their art in particular, just find something that sells and stick to that. Like Jaw Cooper, you can't dismiss her technical skills, but she mostly just draws girls and animals, because that's what she's good at and that's what people buy from her the most.

You're welcome to like Kelogsloops if you want. Nobody here is going to stop you. And is Hieu improving? Yeah, I'd say so. He's been drawing the same girl in the same color scheme over and over again for the last, what, three or four years? It'd be concerning if he wasn't improving.

I actually see similarities in Danica and Hieu. Both are technically good artists, but both have clear comfort zones and don't ever leave them. If you go back two years, you can see Danica's improved in some ways, like her line quality and her skill at manipulating watercolors. But both of them are pretty tiresome because they refuse to experiment or challenge themselves in any way.

I mean… it's obvious why people like his work. It is very pretty, and it is technically solid. And if he can make a career out of drawing the same pasty faced chick, then good for him. Doesn't change the validity of the critique, though.

I won't be watching this one just on account of it being so long.
It takes a certain trait or level of vulnerability to talk about yourself on a personal level, that's why I think she gets the views that she does.

That and she revels in drama and controversy.
I mean good on her for finding something that works for her and is profitable.
I think in few years her artwork could be way better but from an artists perspective I don't think she's good.
Certainly not good enough to do tutorials or lessons of any sort.. probably why her drama videos do so well.

First I thought Audrey is the artist of these paintings. His work is definetely a copy of hers. Detailed peachy skin, 2D hair and some ornaments. Even the faces look similar. Only the canvas is different.

I don't know who was the first one to draw this kind of style but it's getting tiring. So many artists are copying her. Audrey made this style popular in 2005. Now it's 2019. Let's see what trend is coming next.

Sure Kelogsloops will have a good life as an artist because he has a big online following but not because his art pieces are outstanding. He is a copycat and will latch on any popular style, I totally agree >>353290

not equating, more compare/contrasting. a dog dick is a dog dick, dont get me wrong, but the way they are drawn in that video are obviously not in a sexual way, like in furry porn. to me, it feels more like a 'tee-hee' third grade humor sort of way.

No. 353569

>>353565
>>353568

Kasey has a very storybook/cartoony style that doesn't lend itself to having weirdly out of place anatomy beyond very implied. Sure, you see plenty of "cartoon dog dicks" online - in pornographic circles. Kasey doesn't draw furry porn, she draws cartoony shit you'd see on kid's TV or in kid's books, places you would rarely see genitalia. Saying "well furfags do it" is disingenuous because Kasey clearly isn't trying to draw furry porn.

No one is outraged because drawing a dog's sheath is suddenly pornographic, it's just incredibly jarring and seems to be borne purely of spite because she got so much shit for doing it in her sketchbook. This little flap between their legs really adds nothing, it's just weird.

If her style was semi-realistic or a study or whatever and she was adding their genitalia then no one would care.

>>353580
This just seems to mesh more with the grotesque lowbrow style the artist is going for tho…and cat nips aren't a penis. Idk maybe I'm clutching my pearls or grasping at straws but this comic seems like it's trying to be more visually unsettling than kaceys stuff

No. 353602

>>353596
the comic is obviously supposed to be comical and fat cat nipples are funny. dicks on dogs based off of weeb snacks is just…like…not? and i don't think kasey ever meant for her paintings to be humorous, idk. i'm not offended by kasey's insistence on giving her cartoon dogs dicks (and no other animal), it's just weird and off.

No. 353604

I think it's just a case of Kasey being unable to let go of this particular criticism.

Dog dicks are just a weird hill to die on.

No. 353616

>>353602
Exactly, you articulated this better than I did. Nips and little x shaped buttholes are kind of funny, including dog sheaths in pics that don't call for them at all is just fuckin weird. I don't necessarily think she's "into" dog dicks or anything but…why.

No. 353740

>>353604
The funniest part of that to me is she wants to draw children's books. It's like these Yt artists think they exist in a bubble online and their real/professional names being attached to any public statements they make online doesn't apply to their work. Being honest and edgy on social media as a perspective childrens book illustrator just seems so pointless and immature. I'm not saying she can't draw dog dicks, but if kids and parents are saying its a little weird for a children's artist to draw cartoon penises on the same platform they promote their children's book characters and then turn around when they get criticism and decry the existence of unsupervised uncultured children on their channel when they 'clearly never said they were a channel for kids'. Grow up Kacey.

No. 353779

>>353740
in that case i'd argue for death of the author (or illustrator in this case) but it is a theroretical children book and not a critial work so thats a moot point.

i'd guess a close comparrison to make is a studio like telltale, who made The Walking Dead and Minecraft Story Mode; it was the same studio making different projects for different communities. that may be what kasey is saying when she says 'my videos arent for children'

I think kelogloops is incredibly skilled and it's great that he's making a living off his work. Watercolor is a hard medium to sell.

That said, I find something very cringey about his personality. Who knows what he's actually like IRL, but all his videos have that air of "omfg look how happy I am! look how cute my friends/family are! like me! like me!". It's like he's always at a 10 and it comes off as very phony to me.

but…why make cheap art as well? if you do the challenge, do more than a mono-colored 2D illustration. literally looks like shit 1st graders do. the point of the challenge is to try and make your normal art with cheap supplies, and this aint it chief

I get that cheap art supplies videos are popular but they're a pet peeve of mine because I can't help but imagine those things be thrown in a drawer to collect dust. It's such a waste of money and space

It doesn't have to be either-or though. I like listening to artists who can talk confidently about their work and the challenges of being a professional without relying on hysterics. Chris Hong is a good example. Here she talks about warming up after not drawing for a while instead of whining about nothing or gushing absurdly about ordinary things
