In the long run it doesn’t matter how she changes her style; she absolutely refuses to do any sort of fundamental studies and relies on style hopping. This is a beginner mistake that teenagers make that she somehow has yet to grow out of, and I honestly doubt she ever will. At the end of the day the artwork is still extremely mediocre and has glaringly obvious faults, it just has slightly more appealing symbols than the previous

Calling it a sketchbook is more about relatability than it is transparency, I imagine she has a seperate sketchbook she genuinely sketches in, it’s no secret that internet artists (and often even industry professionals) have a ‘sketchbook’ full of finished illustrations for show

I’m also mutuals with this artist and she’s quite chill and down to earth, her audience is primarily made up of teenagers so I imagine there was a push for her to share whatever knowledge she has. Why are anons ITT so anal about who shares what kind of information in regards to art, those who are serious about studying fundamentals will look for books and courses, beginners and youth are who will look for videos like this;

People like this are kind of why I gave up on mainstream youtube art tutorials. You can't take what would take at least a year or a book to learn and squeeze into a ten minute video. The only way to do this is to cut out a lot of info or be someone who doesn't have a full idea of what they're teaching.

I'm fine with them if they explicitly state they aren't professionals and it's best to get information from multiple sources and rec some good sources like Proko. It's fine to do a little tutorial about how you yourself draw and how you got there but there are definitely shitty artists that make tutorials acting like they're the end all be all with high school tier art because they have a large social media following.

The type of person who makes a 'you stole my style' post is what caused the bad rep. A big artist with an unique style would rather keep professionalism and not stir up drama while smaller young artists who have a habit of having an inbred style will accuse others 24/7. It exist, but the over whelming cases of it are just art cow's making up something to be mad at.

Even when they have access to it, most teenagers aren't interested in learning proper techniques on their own. Most teenagers want to draw whatever media they're interested in, be it video games, anime, cartoons, etc. Obviously some teenagers gravitate away from that stuff and learn proper drawing eventually (good young artists have to come from somewhere after all,) but it's kind of rare. It's why most people who enjoyed art as teenagers were unable to make careers out of it as adults. You sort of have to enjoy the act of drawing/painting so much that you're willing to draw things you don't care about, or even things you hate.

That's why kids who go to art-specific high schools are at sort of an advantage– adults are literally forcing them to learn shit the right way the first time when they're young, before they acquire a bunch of bad habits from drawing animu and shit. I say "sort of" because really all the teachers are doing is introducing the kids to proper techniques. The onus is on the students to continue perusing that on their freetime/after high school.

Also, art tutorials on Youtube generally aren't the best way to learn, because so many of them contain misinformation and a beginner isn't going to know which ones are worth watching. It's not a coincidence that the best Youtube art tutorials (like pic related) are by people who have already published books on the subject. Honestly, just read books! Ebooks are usually pretty cheap these days.

Kids who want to learn will learn, and are more likely to make a career out of art. Kids who don't won't, and that's their problem.

On another note, who fucking cares if kids and teens aren’t actively working towards getting better? They’re children, they should be drawing/painting/what have you for enjoyments sake, not to explicitly improve and possibly profit off of it in the future; why not create just to enjoy the process?

It should be first and foremost about expressing oneself, with technical skill coming second, ESPECIALLY if you’re a child or hobbyist

Tbf though, a youtuber can be more approachable to an aspiring artist than an entire art book or a professional artist due to the skill gap they see. I've also noticed that someone who's mediocre at art (and by that I mean: Somewhat decent but not a pro) can at times relate to the troubles of beginners more than someone who's already a master at their graft. I mean if I think back at when I started drawing, I can barely remember all the things I struggled with but if I think back to just last year, I can easily remember how I overcame my biggest obstacles. Sometimes people need that kind of person more than super experienced artist, just like how at art school those who end up pushing you the most are probably other passionate student rather than just the teachers. People need that safe stepping stone from being a beginner to learning from masters and a lot of youtubers fit nicely into that gap.

Sure a lot of times people end up teaching you some absolute garbage coughbayleecough but that doesn't mean a youtuber can never offer valuable advice that can push the person forward and maybe eventually want to make them pick up that art book.

I think you guys are pretty far removed from any art industries which is where all the confusion is coming from. This book is for comic book illustration. Illustrators make work for already existing things, like books (sara pichelli).

Studio artists do concept art, paintings, portraits, installations, and are usually making money from galleries, not commissions (marco mazzoni).

ITT the only types of artists discussed are cartoonists, drawers whose only subject is unrealistic imagination people/animals on a freelance basis for commission. They usually do not charge over $100 USD due to a highly saturated market of lots of extremely similar styles. They are usually untrained and haven't entered a field yet because of the lack of a degree so the few who are skilled stand out.

It is a nickname. Nicknames don’t need a reasoning to be used, they are a shortening of someone’s actual name, or an inside joke among people that know the person. If you see the nickname Rin and think it is some Japanese weeb shit, that is on you, because she has never given any inclination that is the inspiration for a nickname. If anything, using a fake name online is smart. I avoid my real name as much as possible, for security is nothing else. Maybe Waffles does the same, considering her online fame in the artist sphere.

No. 506418

Rin is a common nickname for catherine and is not only a Japanese name. It's mainly used when the name has the pronunciation ka-tha-rin as opposed to ka-tha-reen. It's the same thing as calling someone named cecelia cece or lia. There's no real rule to it, it's just calling a person a shortened part of their name that's easily remembered and associated with the acutal person by both parties

If a nickname or certian sounding word can only be taken one way (as only a japanese name and nothing else in this case) then by that logic the fact that in chinese the term for expressing um or well sounds almost exactly like the the N word (那个(nèi ge pronounced nee-ga) means that either the whole of the chinese language has been, from it's creation, racist, or the n word isn't a bad word at all and we're all misusing it over here. It can be both, and it's meaning or associations can be different depending on location/culture/the people using it. Could it be a weeb thing? yeah of course, but it could just as likely be a cute nickname she was given 'cause nobody has the time to say catherine.

now can we please get back to some actual milk?

Oh Sara Faber is one of those “aesthetic-vegan-work from home-only draws girls” types of IG artists, her YT channel is just all that, like I expect to see a cutting machine running in the background making planner stickers. Her faces are really bug eyed but also resemble like a Disney knockoff or something and yet she has nearly 800 patrons on patreon? She’s like baylee to me where I think a lot of people like her video content more than the art but it’s inconsequential and boring

Dude no reason to be so aggro
of course nearly every type of artist does have to eventually learn how to draw people. but when an artist trains in a figure course in a classroom setting, we learn from nude models who the school pays to sit on a cold pedestal for 5 hours, not from comic book artists doing weird running action poses. those books are made for a really specific type of outsider artist who cant afford any real life courses and needs to draw moving bodies.

right off the bat the video's format annoys me, so many floating jpegs.
Tbh her art isnt terrible, sure heavily stylized and lacking character but it has appeal. She would be way more tolerable if she put music over these things instead of her voice cause the commentary is..bad.
Her style isnt flexible enough for her to say she tries to make the character look older, without the commentary we would barley know where her concept messed up.

It's obviously not that this is a place to trash and critique artists, and she just happens to be a very annoyingly shitty artist that many people enjoy trashing, it MUST be some kind of conspiracy that people post her videos right after release just like they do waffles, and baylee and all the other raccoon bait trash-fires that get brought up in this forum.

You do realize that the point of drawing books isn't to literally copy the drawings in it, right? They teach you about technique. Obviously it's not a replacement for actual life drawing, and there are many approaches you can take to life drawing. I literally never even suggested that it was a replacement for life drawing. I was saying that it was better than a Youtube video.

Also, someone being a comic book artist doesn't automatically mean they don't draw from life. Hal Foster drew from life every day from over a decade. Additionally, not all comics are cape shit and action. Most comics aren't cape shit. You just hear about cape the most because it's what gets the most media exposure.

Here is a topic; Creepshow is playing the January game and overflowing her channel with clickbait bullshit she is unqualified to talk about because January is the worst month for ad-rev and she knows it. Might as well exploit her young audience into believing she is some investigative expert, all under the guise of being an ‘Art Youtuber’. Nothing screams ‘I am intelligent’ like associating your actual face with someone being accused of sexual misconduct. Now, whenever I see the people she is talking about, I will be reminded of Creepshow, with her 2005 emo eyeliner on the body of a 45 year old southern Christian mother of two.

Copics have many knockoffs that are just as good but cheaper, like Ohuhu markers.

You can also use watercolors and a watercolor pen, which is what I do. The only problem is that you don't have as much control, and you can't apply the color to your ink original– you have to make a photocopy, or do the colors on a totally different piece of paper and overlay them in Photoshop.

>>507181
Nta but plenty of things are non-archival.

One of my professors gave a lecture the other day about how fragile oil paintings done on canvas with acrylic gesso are. He had a twenty-year-old oil painting that literally crumbled off the canvas when he bumped it because when oil cures it gets hard, but when acrylic cures it retains some of its plasticity.

He said that if you wanted your oil paintings to last a long time, you have to either use Italian gesso (which is made of animal skin glue) or switch to something other than canvas, like wood panels.

So if you've ever done oil paintings on acrylic gesso, you're in no place to be throwing shade at people who use Copics.

Hot take: people who hate all art created in a particular medium are autistic and can't appreciate skill if it isn't in a medium they don't personally use.

I don't know what the fuck you're on about. Copics don't look like PS, they look like alcohol markers. Something tells me that even if people did "just use Photoshop" you'd act like an elitist to them, too. This kind of crap is why illustrators and fine artists don't always get along. Fine artists can sometimes be really pretentious and judgemental towards illustrators, because illustrators make art for everybody, whereas fine artists just make art for curators and other artists. They don't like that illustrators care about the opinions of the non-artist plebeians and actually want to make a career out of this thing they love.

Since you use similar mediums I doubt I can tell you anything new.
But for me it's all about efficiency and speed since I do serialized work. Markers are mess free and they need little to no preparation and dry quickly. Also when used properly they scan perfectly and usually don't require much editing.
I feel like anons are gonna crucify me for this.

Unrelated to the art medium discussion but what do yall think of this post by @devin.draws on Instagram? It was posted some time ago but only just showed up on my tl but it seems like everyone is mad at him for suggesting that people who only draw hyperrealistic eyes are stagnanting and overrated

No. 507617

hes right

also the copic discussion is dumb as fuck, yeah theyre overpriced, theyre still nice if you want a flat, "digital" look and quick vibrant colors in traditional art (because watercolors or pencils are not going to get you that level of predictable, bright colors that easily). just dont sell the originals. can we stop now?

No. 507626

I'm not even subbed to him, but wtf is this. Can anyone tell me wtf is his point in this video. I know that he 'hates' on the artists that he mentions in his videos so he can teach another way of doing whatever that artist's tutorial is, but it still leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I just couldn't stand the way he tries to be 'edgy'.
Sure, he might be helpful to a handful of people, but his 'comedy' is just so grating. Maybe it would be better if he just doesn't talk in his videos.

did it not occur to anyone here that anon mentioned markers' lack of lightfastness as a warning to someone who isn't familiar with the medium

>>507726
That's not a fair comparison anon, pigments that fade or change in UV can still be properly stored to last. Marker work can't, it's always fugative, you'll have to scan it.
Spending big bucks on something that will fade is dumb, you can do it if you wanna but it's still dumb.
Marker work can be sold once scanned without those issues tho.
But you really can't compare that to the lightfastness of other mediums while improperly displayed

No. 507762

>>507744
IDK, I feel like the last thing I’d want to be lightfast and last for a while is my art, so markers are perfect for me.

On a more serious note, markers like Copics feel nice to use. And I like being close to my medium, but not getting things like paint and water spilling everywhere. It is a clean medium that is vibrant and solid. I, personality, don’t feel the art I create in Photoshop is personal enough. That is why I spend 6+ dollars on a Copic marker. I simply feel more connected to the art-making process with that supply.

I don’t care if my art lasts, I just want to make it, man.

No. 507785

>>507762
And that's perfectly fine
I buy almost only lightfast paints and pencils.
But just like I tell people how to take care of a watercolor piece it's important that people, buyers and artists alike are aware of how markers are gonna work, and fade.

All the pissing on each other ITT is annoying and anons should just ignore info they're already aware of, original anon didn't say anything offensive

Yea but that's not actually because of the upper body but because of the neck and head. If she moved the head to the right the anatomy would be technically correct (if clunky). I'm talking more about the proportions relative to the body anyway, because usually people who're begs, tend to have different sized arms and legs because they don't think about drawing as a constructio, yet in here the body is clearly built up while the coloring lacks any sort of direction or knowledge about constructing a body which creates a heavy conflict.

imo it has more to do with fiction than reality.

The biggest problem I see with the divershitty meme is that its disingenuous. I know "soul" is thrown around like a buzzword, but to me its seeing an artist having fun while putting his/her best efforts into improving and refining projects. And these fuckers don't try to go out of the box or innovate/experiment- which you'd do if you actually gave a rats ass about art in the first place. Come on, its all about being creative.
I can go on like a broken record but one last point is that fiction is about making mundane everyday objects appealing, giving life to them. Realism will not automatically make your art 10/10, you still have to make careful decisions on which parts to stylize/idealize or keep realistic. (not excusing the "muh style" crap btw; realism is very important for artist especially beginners; understand how reality works to make their own "believable reality" in their fictional world etc.)

Samefag, but on that note, I DO see an issue with her posting sexualised nudity on a channel that has a primarily child fan base; like another anon suggested, it would be wisest to instead start up a smaller second channel that is geared towards adults, especially if she wants to be a published children’s book author as editors and publishers do extensive background and social media checks due to the nature of the market (pretty much anything geared towards children will check up on what kind of persons work they are going to promote, unless of course you’re Nickelodeon), sexualised mild nudity may not kill her career, but it’ll certainly make her less desirable due to the risk associated with such a public platform with content that isn’t child friendly

If you're certain you wanna get copics (instead of cheaper markers like anons suggested) calculate the price per marker you will use from a set (so leave the colors you're not going to use out of the calculation) and compare it to the price per single marker, go with the option that's cheapest per used marker.

I think they actually mean it's a female character who dresses in a stereotypically feminine way and has not had any medical procedures done to appear male but is still a "soft femmy trans man" because short hair and it's the artist's fetish.

Anons that have done commissions for furries; is it worth it?
- are they difficult to work with?
- is it easy to get into?
- do they expect high quality art or are fine with intermediate levels as long as it’s self indulgent?
- can you expect to get a decent amount of commissions?
- do certain styles do better than others (say a very simplistic one over semi realistic)?

it all depends on the individual. from my experience they're pretty alright to work with and i make 40$ despite not being the best or most detailed. it can be hard to get into if you dont enjoy what you draw in general, most people will see your art and commission you if they like your style.
overall, its what you make of it. a lot of artists have found a decent client base through the fandom.

Now that everyone and their mom is jumping on the furry money train you have to be a very high skill level to walk straight into it. If not, expect to do spend some time on promotional art and laying the groundwork to pretend that you're not just another non-furry trying to cash in on their furry neetbux
>do they expect high quality art or are fine with intermediate levels as long as it’s self indulgent? do certain styles do better than others?
Look at furry artists similar to your skill and style to you and see what they charge, how much completed commission art they post etc, but also keep in mind if their success comes from being a longtime active community member or from cornering a niche fetish
>can you expect to get a decent amount of commissions?
There is no way to say without judging your art and audience interaction against current artists. Often you will get a burst of commissions when you're new because collectors like to get art from every artist they can find, but then it's up to you to keep the momentum going, it can take time to develop a fanbase.
If you like drawing furries then it's worthwhile because you only it anyway, but if you're not interested in furies and you're not a god level of skill then you will make easier money in less time at McDonald's.

But I'm going to draw a little and I'm going to do the same thing tomorrow." Put on some music, pull out some references from artists you like and try to get the vibe going.

"Degenerate" and "disgusting" are subjective, and people have artistic freedom and can create whatever media they enjoy creating. You could just as easily ask if the world needs any more sketchbook-level detailed drawings of eyes on Instagram, hotel lobby acrylic paintings of flowers, or "edgy" "subversive" magazine cut-out collages about unrealistic beauty standards, all of which are oversaturated mediums that still get churned out every day as if they're modern and original.

What do you think about Christopher Hart? I have been looking into his How to draw manga books lately since a few pages or tutorials like pic related have been poping up on most sites I go.

I found out that many artists dislike him for many of these tutorials, where he doesn't give any advice aside from "They MOST look pretty!" And the way he is on DeviantArt, by not taking any advice from anyone and mass blocking.

While other artists defend him by saying that his books were a great inspiration with really helpful advice when they were younger.

I don't own any of his books, however for the stuff I have seen, I don't like how much he insist on drawing girls pretty all the time, I don't want to sound like someone who screams for diversity in media, that's not my problem, what does annoy me is that it gives me that "Only draw boring pretty girls" artist vibe that has been discussed a lot on these threaths.

Chris Hart is an old cow who got a ton of “how to draw manga” books published way back in the nineties cuz manga was just super hard to get back then.

If you want to protect children from anything then you just don't let them use the internet. I agree that using child-friendly art styles for degenerate art can lead children into consuming it, but that's why parents need to pay attention to what their children are actually consuming. Content makers should be responsible in marking their adult content as such, but it's not their fault if a child goes ahead and views it anyway.

It has no place in modern twitter culture besides just trying to feel better than others for consuming pure media or whatever, I don't really care.

All i'm saying is that with block chains and other stuff ready available, PSAs like this only make the artist exposure grow, making it more viable for even more minors or victims (as if they really care about that) to see lol.

Also most artists like this have +18 and follow at own risk or whatever in their bio.

Oh my god, I hate this argument;

It is not MY JOB to monitor what YOUR CHILDREN watch/view on any social media platform. An artist can draw as much degeneracy as they want, if they say 'viewer discretion is advised', or have an indication they make NSFW art like the 'not 18' emoji, which is universally used to signal they make NSFW art, then they have done their due diligence by warning the viewer. Not only that, the language barrier makes it even more difficult in cases like this. Who gives a fuck about the kids? It is the parent's job to monitor what their kids do, no individual artist can assure whoever is viewing their work is of age since lying about age has been around since the internet's inception. If you don't want the precious babies to see cartoon dick, be an actual adult and parent your child. Block the accounts you don't like, if it is actual TOS violation, report it. Use some god-damn personal responsibility.

I remember seeing a twitter post by FBI (or CPS don't remember which) that told people to stop misusing the report function on people who aren't actual criminals or breaking laws. The truth is that the whole loli/shota has already been researched heavily across all countries; Japan itself even issued a ban on those subjects in the early 2000's, but they realized that it doesn't affect the number of cases of child abuse. The earliest conclusion was from 2012 by Denmark that explicitly state that weeb drawings don't lead to pedophilia.

Also I remember some fat dude who had those stereotypical hipster soyboy looks, who got busted for child abuse. He tweeted constantly about hating animu (and calling anyone who likes anime a pedo) and the next day he would tweet creepy shit, being near a nursery school and taking pics then calling himself "pedobear" it was legit disgusting. There's certainly a trend here of these weirdos who do more harm to society than the people they call out for drawing impossible tentacle porn hentai.

I agree with some of this except in the case of people who know their main viewer demographic is children and post inappropriate things despite knowing that.

It's one thing if the parents aren't keeping an eye on their kid and they find an artist with some NSFW or otherwise 'adult' content, the artist isn't creating for children, they (most likely) make that pretty clear. It's the parents fault that their kid ended up on that area of the internet, not the artist. But it you're someone that markets yourself as family friendly/kid friendly, or know that your main audience is children for whatever reason and you post that sort of stuff, that's kinda creepy/inappropriate

I guess the whole point of bringing this up is also the argument that if you draw something deemed gross, incest/pedo art or what have you, you find that acceptable in real life OR will influence people to commit horrible acts based on this kind of art… maybe that's why people feel so morally obligated to shame these artists directly and publicly.

like pic related and the one anon posted earlier, art may fall into a morally questionable place, but is it really fair to say this kind of thing is 100% dangerous and damaging? It's fair to say you hate it and think it's creepy, and I also think most people who look at this kind of art know that it's fucking criminal to abuse kids and it comes with heavy repercussions and long lasting damages, so what are these callouts supposed to accomplish? kids shouldn't be on the internet unmonitored anyway.

NTA but I’m assuming it’s a loli comic

I think anyone that is morally corrupt enough to somehow get their rocks off to the idea of kids is fucked and should be shamed for it, if I recall correctly there was a survey done that found 1 in 100 men had pedophilic tendencies - this is based on a survey where men were shameless enough to admit they’d fuck a 14 year old if they could away with it, I can only imagine how many more are rightfully too ashamed to say so. I bring this survey up because the sexual depiction of children in artwork feeds into this mentality, people who are drawn to loli/shota/cub are not right in the head and need to stop thinking with their genitals for a single fucking moment to actually critically think about their desires.
It’s not normal to be turned on by kids, and saying it’s fine because it’s fiction is just a massive fucking cope

Apparently every person in Japan is now black. Also, why make the costumes look so fucking bland. The point of the costumes is not only to be functional, but also to make the heroes recognizable. Uraraka's costume makes her look fluffy/light, and her boots actually has that pad underneath that is springy or something so she could take flight better. Afaik, Momo's costume design has been changed and is now not as revealing. Eijirou doesn't need all that clothing because it'll rip apart when he goes unbreakable anyway, but apparently he needs a shirt or else he'll get killed according to whoever made that redraw (why dafuq does he have an R is he part of the Team Rocket now wth). Idk why Mina needs the visors since clearly her skin isn't affected by the quirk, so why would her eyes need that (and a person's body is modified to handle their quirk so idk why dafuq they need that shit). They also don't need to tie their hair up because anime physics. I'm so tired of these redraws. As if Horikoshi doesn't think about their hero upgrades. Idk what they're crying about since they're not even in their 2nd year so obviously their hero gear would still change. A recent example of this is Uraraka's gear. It's heavy af (there's a reason for this I forgot), but with the help of her quirk, it goes lighter + she has that new wrist gear that is essentially like Deku's black whip/Sero's quirk. If they read the manga they would complain less.

But, I can't help but complain because this woman has named her computer and ipad for some reason and she literally has to introduce them every time as if they're people. Like, really, your ipad is named hippogryph? No one cares, that's so stupid.

And from what I can tell she even has a romantic attraction or something to her laptop, because she draws art of it as a character, interacting with her self insert. And she says she wants to marry her laptop. In one video, she asks her computer if it wants to be in the video and then puts it in the background - and I thought she was video chatting with someone until I realized she was talking to her actual computer.

I dunno, maybe she's joking, but it annoyed me and I needed to complain

Oh god Christopher Hart, that name takes me back. I'll be honest, I have a few of his books though they are about 16-18 years old now. His books definitely helped me want to take drawing more seriously as I bought one of his earlier books back in like 2003 and I was super into anime at the time what with being in middle school.

In hindsight his books weren't really that helpful as far as fundamentals went and he wasn't very good at explaining things, at least in my opinion. Trying his method of drawing all those years ago, my characters would always come out so stiff looking and this is because I lacked fundamentals. Now I don't know how his books are not if he's still making them as the last one I got from his How to Draw collection was back in 2006 but personally, I would skip on his stuff and just stick with Loomis or any of the Disney Artists as I notice in their tutorials, especially Disney artists that they at least incorporate some sort of fundamental in it like the Line of action and what not.

the argument that people become pedophiles because fiction is always so backwards. if you are an adult person with a normal head on your shoulders you won't start to diddle kids just because you saw it in a comic, just like you won't become violent from video games. they either were already a pedophile or had mental problems that caused them to steer that way. i can't fully comment on the survey without reading the exact details of it, but i think knowing which country it was held in might give some insight since some countries have an age of consent of 14 years old (which i don't think should be legal at all, but it's the standard in some places).

This is kind of like arguing that we shouldn't connect the dots when a very particular topic's sexualization is being normalized.
Every study on this will tell you that it's not exactly like video games. Human sexuality is fluid and very sensitive to outside influences, and that's just the inconvenient truth of it. It's especially sensitive when it comes to children being exposed to sexual content from an early age. It colors their perception of sex for life.
It's kind of a blow to the "absolute freedom of speech, media doesn't cause any effect on anyone" camp, but like it or not, any society that approves of children being sexually objectified is one that encourages pedophilic attitudes. If it's treated as normal, even in fiction, it's not just "natural" pedophiles who will be groomed not to see a problem.

No. 509764

i'm not saying that children should to be exposed to this content, i specified that a normal adult who has already formed their sexuality will not be changed because of this content (also i don't think equating pedophilia to a sexuality is a good argument to make). children under no circumstance should see this content, and i've yet to see one account who doesn't at least have the 18+ emoji on them when they post that content.
there have been no studies about the exact effects this fiction has on adults, the most official documents i've seen that reference this content is court cases that haven't found it illegal.
i'm not stating media doesn't have any effect irl (especially on impressionable children), i just think that in spaces closed away from children adults should be able to explore problematic themes in fiction.

Not equating pedophilia to a sexuality, I'm specifically describing paraphilia and its easy spread through pornographic content. Just look at the rise in popularity in anal sex as a direct result of mainstream porn.
>a normal adult who has already formed their sexuality
This is exactly what I mean: That's not a thing. Fetishes don't remain in stasis, completely immutable without opportunity to worsen. Porn addicts seek harder and harder content precisely because the human mind doesn't "freeze" on one thing just because you hit a certain age.
>i just think that in spaces closed away from children adults should be able to explore problematic themes in fiction.
What does an adult have to "explore" in the sexualization of children? Honest question. Content that discusses CSA is one thing, but I can't think of a single beneficial thing to ever come out of shit like >>509672 or the work of >>509374. Like, what is the gain here? When a mind is being trained with repeated images associating childish forms with sex, what is the inherent takeaway that justifies it all?

No. 509770

>>509768
a mind isn't "trained" when viewing this content, i don't know how to explain this better to you, but no normal adult becomes a pedophile from viewing this content. i'm not sure if you are saying there that lolicon or pedophilia is a fetish, but if you are saying lolicon is, than there you have it, it's supposed to be a fantasy, not a thing done in real life.
i can't say for sure every aspect of what someone might gain from those examples, but i've heard people state that in a way it's an exploration of a weaker aspect of themselves, that they project themselves onto the characters. you also probably heard this one already (since so many people make fun of it here), but people could use it to cope with their own experiences as well, as a way to take back control they had lost.
but anyway, my main point is that as long as this content is being kept away from children, adults should be able to engage with it, even if the reason doesn't strike your fancy. i'm not saying no one should be disgusted that this content exists, or that it shouldn't give red flags, i just don't think labeling people pedophiles over drawings is accurate at all.

If you think sexual fetishism has no bearing in real life and that it's "just fantasy", then you're kind of ignoring literally everything that's been studied when it comes to the effects of pornography on society as a whole, anon.
I very strongly doubt the grown men pushing out comic after comic and drawing of little girls being brutalized or objectified are "taking back control they lost" or "trying to cope", or that the majority of consumers of that content are people trying to do the same, but you're free to your own outlook.
It's not a matter of personal fancy, it's just pretty blatant and in-your-face what this is, and it's pretty sad that people defend it because it's already become so normal.

well if it's on topic we can talk about it more, though i'm not sure if you are looking for this conversation to have an outcome or just saying this stuff you can feel like a morally righteous person.
there still have been no studies about this specific content, and you can't generalize other porn studies onto this. i feel like you are really taking a stance that "porn bad" which is pretty detrimental to discussing this topic. what do you think is the exact effect on society is of this content existing? if it's that people start becoming pedophiles, then i've already said many times that there are no specific studies on it. and if it were such rampant thing than it would be something people would actually worry about irl too, and not just yell about it over the internet (while ignoring very real pedophiles in internet spaces too). anon up by a few posts even mentioned how the fbi had to make a post warning people that misusing their report system for this content is helping no one.

hopefully wrangling this back to the original question I brought up, basically does liking questionable art mean you support sexualization being normalized (as >>509759 said)? Is there even a point for it to be drawn in the first place like >>509768 said, and should people that still draw it be villified? On the other hand, does fiction really play such an important part in changing adult behavior (as >>509599 said)? is there a gray area or do we need to treat these things seriously (or not, just block and ignore)

I think most can agree that an artist like shadbase is different to CLAMP (thinking of Card Captor Sakura and elementary kid/adult teacher thing), or is it all the same? is it still supporting bad shit? can you give people the benefit of understanding that "x is bad, i like this art, but x is still bad". Do people that like Takamichi's work support LO by liking the covers or is it as bad as actually reading LO? Just to be clear, I'm attaching Range Murata as an example because he falls into the similar category of 'draws little girls in a way you'd want to question' (search for his other works and see).

I guess I'm mostly just trying to piece together when people are reaching and when it should be a cause for concern. the salt I have is in the examples of 'callouts' I posted above… is that kind of thing necessary? IMO it's pointless, but I want to understand it deeper after being a kid once that did see disturbing things and what i should do now as an adult. It's one thing to call out people that have actually abused minors, but should the same treatment be applied to a small artist that drew some incest ship? is it the same amount of evil to depict that as normal? do the problems of societal & cultural sexualization of children and violent abuse apply in these cases (ie small artists in fandoms) or can we agree that it's…. kind of a reach in order to feel morally superior? it just especially bothers me when these small, usually foreign artists get tons of threatening messages about being freaks or w/e. are they really who we need to go after

NTA but actually, there have been a number of studies and a fair amount of research regarding the law of diminishing returns in relation to pornography. the books 'your brain on porn' and 'the porn myth' are both good reads regarding this and they compile a good deal of the studies and research out there on the subject. If you want to really know for sure what's what in this situation maybe grab them from your library, read them, then find (google) the studies they cite as sources and give them a once over yourself for accuracy/proper controls and protocols. I think taking steps like That would be the only way anyone could be certain of their stance on this issue, or any issue.

Quit frankly anybody who's taken a 101 psych, statistics or just any course that requires you to verify legitimate sources should be able to ascertain the legitimacy of a study so there's no reason not to take the time to look into it.

It is difficult to find the studies in the wild, mainly because it's an unpopular stance to suggest that there could be negative side-effects or consequences of regularly consuming porn, so most organizations or websites that would normally cover it either jump into defensive denial and ad hominem attacks on the researchers goals, or ignore the information completely since they don't want to upset/lose their reader/viewership (let's be honest, there's not really any media outlets lefts that's not more about entertainment than facts or information). Even google is more likely to recommend to you NYT articles mocking the concept rather than give you the raw data to examine yourself.

In the CLAMP example you mentioned, I think it's woman artists/writers reflecting the paradigm they've already been taught to normalize, without really pausing to question it.
When Shadbase does it, he has a perfect understanding of how fucked up it is, and that's part of the reason why he likes it so much.
The first is problematic, while the second is an actual problem.
>can you give people the benefit of understanding that "x is bad, i like this art, but x is still bad"
Individually, maybe, but collectively, no. I don't think appreciating that >>509660 and other LO covers have a somber/peaceful look to them is the same as being an apologist for the actual content therein, but there are also people who pretend to only like the "wholesome" art as a shield for what they're really into.
In the former case, it only becomes an issue, IMO, when someone starts to glorify the full package. I think Range Murata's art is beautiful, but the weird, sexualized aspects make me avoid praising him too highly. I'm pretty sure a lot of people who are into manga-styled art can relate to that kind of cognitive dissonance. Some go full lolicon-defending cope mode to deal with it, instead of just accepting that sick fucks can also be talented, but by virtue of them being sick fucks, in a just world, they'd automatically forfeit at least half (if not more) of the praise they would/should normally get.
Obviously, most of the Twitter "callouts" are just useless and OTT. With only a few exceptions, most of the people they "expose" are just like the example of CLAMP: Problematic, but not a problem.
I think there should be space to discuss the issues with normalizing certain sorts of content (especially within fandom), especially since it can be used to groom kids, but it could be handled better.
>are they really who we need to go after
This is just based off my personal snooping, but 9 times out of 10, the people who need to be gone after are the nobodies in the comment sections defending the artist(s) because they have their own stash or history, but everyone just tells them to fuck off and/or mostly ignores them because the artist or writer is a bigger fish with more evidence laid out.
The smart thing to do would be to track the fans of people who make incest/pedo content, but that's more of a long game, and Twitter users often have too low of an attention span.

Yeah, pedos 'are born' like serial killers/psychopaths; their brains are wired differently from birth which causes them to be less sympathetic to others, and are very, very good at masking their fucked up behaviors. And also it could be that they were locked up in some fucked up situation, abused and severely tortured at an early age, but the former is more common/legit.

Like I said in my last post about anime not being a good reference for any form of sexuality; the anime art style is very idealized in general. Its like how regular porn creates an illusion of it looking exciting, but when you do it IRL with someone, it won't feel the same. I remember back when tumblr wasn't 100% insane, and we'd all laugh at crazies (like Choco bird fountain), LGBT blogs expressed frustration with having late teenagers in college asking them if they're gay etc. because they fapped to futa tentacle hentai, then explaining for the nth time that its not the case. In general, if you aren't willing to hook up with someone with a certain gender/trait, you aren't gay/bi and just like the fantasy of it, and not the actual thing.

Psychology, anything related to the brains is a tough subject that needs to be handled with the upmost care. Twitter NEETs LARPing as armchair psychologists shouldn't play police when they don't know how to handle the guns; the best you can do is report to the FBI if you have clear evidence/facts of suspecting groomers in your group or whatever.

exactly this, this why i was saying that we can't generalize studies of irl porn videos onto the subject of lolicon. and there have been no studies about that specifically, which is a shame.
and on the topic of the twitter callouts, not only are they useless, they have only caused people to have more and more warped views of what pedophilia and incest means. small age differences being talked about as being pedophilic, or the more ridiculous "they are childhood friends so it's incest". some of you said that this content is warping people's perception of right and wrong, but more often what i see is that people vehemently against it have warped views of what pedophilia and incest is, and they are influencing other people with this.

>As our current research here can only speak to the trends illuminated from our analysis, future studies must be conducted in order to ascertain information regarding actual attitudes and behaviors associated with consuming youth-oriented pornography. Overall, the results indicate all three hypotheses were supported. We found that there has been a significant increase in the rate of interest within teenage pornography, amateur pornography, and Hentai inspired pornography, which is unsurprising given the popularity of the niches among and widespread availability content via pornographic hubs (Ogas and Gaddam 2011).
>Clearly the interest in youth-oriented pornography has increased over the past decade, and that increase appears to coincide with what Gill (2008, 2012) and others argue is the continued ‘‘sexualization of culture’’. Only the search interest in Lolita pornography has decreased, most likely a result of the antiquated terminology and decrease in popularity, as more specific queries have arisen. Moreover, the evidence supports our hypothesis that those seeking out these subgenres within the niche of teenage pornography are a heterogeneous population rather than a homogenous group.

Applying real world justice standards to drawings is autistic, period. If Shadman was just drawing the gross fetish porn he's doing now I wouldn't care but the fact that he's openly creeping on irl people makes him disgusting. This topic has been beaten to the ground already and I want the discourse to die already, plenty of people use art to handle emotions and trauma, children might be used as symbolic self-inserts, yada yada. Fiction is used to explore things we would never accept in real life. Everyone has some nasty, dubious and/or illegal thing they like in fiction but would never take to reality. The people screeching about "shipping minors" have no problem watching these same minors get beat up by adults in battle. They might like horror movies or true crime documentaries with murders in them. That would get your ass sent to prison so fast if you would go around committing that in real life.

Bottom line, don't like it, don't look at it. It's that easy. Save the callouts for when someone actually gets caught kiddly diddling. Plenty of people who have never shown any signs of pedophilic tendencies have been outed as possessing child porn and touching kids. A ton of dedicated male feminists have been exposed as rapists. The thought that you can somehow spot a predator based on their interests is just causing false hope to people in a situation where you desire control over horrible things you can't always do anything about.

>masturbating to drawings of children doesnt mean you're a pedophile though
This was literally not said by any poster in this thread, including the one you replied to.

It's very obvious that a majority of those militantly against loli and shota content - especially those who claim that fictional, drawn content of that nature is equal to or equally as harmful as child pornography and child sexual abuse - care in no way about abuse victims and adopt that view because they believe it a way to garner more attention and appear morally superior in others' eyes, especially on social media, where people are rewarded for appealing to others. Those who experienced sexual assault/abuse as a child know how damaging it is, and really don't appreciate seeing people (usually faux-progressive teenagers on Twitter and Tumblr, let's be honest) jump at any chance to accuse someone of having abused a child solely for their own personal gain, all while throwing terms like "pedophile", "predator", and "abuse" around, further disregarding victims' experiences and emotions by desensitizing the actual meanings and implication of those terms.

Victims of childhood sexual abuse want justice, be it social or legal, for their situation and what happened to them. They want others to listen to them, take them seriously, and understand what they've been through. They don't want completely unrelated people online using cases like theirs as an opportunity to promote themselves by playing up a false idea that they're a "socially-progressive hero saving innocent minors!", especially doing something as demeaning as comparing the abuse a child experienced to a drawing.

When did this superbly-woke-Tumblr-liberal mentality of "drawings totally equal abusing a child" migrate to lolcow? If you're looking for people to tell you that you're such a good person and you're saving so many children from lifelong trauma by calling random strangers pedophiles in sarcastic posts, this isn't the place.

Not everything comes down to wanting to impress others, nor is it about feeling morally superior, it’s that it is beyond fucking foul to see childlike imagery/mannerisms and think of sex. As to anons arguing that fantasy has no bearing on reality, and that fictional children do not turn adults to pedophilic tendencies, explain to me the rise of DDLG; the romanticisation and fetishisation of incestuous child abuse. People WERE in fact groomed into such degeneracy, and you’re being purposely obtuse if you claim that it’s not the case.

Delores is not once presented as enjoying their 'relationship' without implications that she's either distressed or doing so because she literally has nobody else.

Drawing real children in a sexual way is definitely wrong, but anime already makes the characters look young - so anime kids practically look like babies. Someone jacking it to an anime kid character is pedophilic, I'd say. But for adult anime characters… I guess it depends on the way they look. People can usually tell if a character was intentionally designed to look younger/older.

Look, this is what I'm trying to say anon. Discussion is when you produce rational, polite arguments about your stance, and then others respond with theirs, and we politely argue minutia. You're not having a high-brow debate, or even a friendly discussion, which would be different and a lot more enjoyable and productive. I'd get involved in that, it sounds fantastic, I love discussions on topics like this, and it's a really good topic from every angle (art, philosophy, ethics, society, cultural differences, it's the whole package). There's so many interesting potential arguments and angles to comb over.

But that's not what you guys are doing. You're repeating the same arguments verbatim, terrified of conceding even one point to the other. You're committing every logical fallacy in the book screaming back and forth while exploring no new ground, while each side gets angrier and angrier and the comments get nastier and nastier. You can't have a good debate or discussion like that, literally, anybody who's actually involved in IRL debate stuff can tell you that. You have to come from a place of rationality and separation of emotion from argument for this sort of thing to work, not something online anon boards are fond of

You're not wrong. We've been covering pen and ink in an art course recently and the teacher made a point to warn us about how the human eye can't physically handle working close up like that for too long.

I'd also say that it's important to put in time on the regular in practicing fundamentals (shape, tone value, figure, etc). It's no different from pianists doing scales or athletes stretching as a warm up. It's easy to get drawn into the cooler more complex stuff and neglect your understanding and effort in the fundamentals.

You're not debating the issue, you're arguing to take down the person on the opposing side of the issue.

No. 510146

>>510138
What I mean is, someone accused that side of that and then the rest of us bought it and continued with that theory. There's no evidence that that side was arguing purely for the sake of having a moral high-ground anymore than there is for the opposite side arguing because they're all pedo apologist weebs.

That's the problem with this sort of discourse. Both sides get invested in being right, and defensive/angry about being wrong or accused of such, and when they get into that mindset they, for whatever reason there are a number, don't clarify their language and meaning, while at the same time the opponents use that lack of clarity to make sweeping accusations and responses that wouldn't make sense if the other sides post had been able or allowed to clarify. I'm sure there's a lot more detail behind arguments on each side, but when you're approaching a debate like that, it all gets thrown out the window

I personally think it's not too clear where it broke down. it wasn't the most cordial discussion in the first place, the first two posters were pretty wound up from the get-go about the topic, and both sides got very defensive very quickly. then one side got hit with the accusation'arguing to have a moral high-ground' and around the same time the other got hit with 'arguing because you're a weeb/pedo/anime defender' and from their the whole thing broke down.

from my view point many of point brought up by the anti side are stuff that i've seen rehashed so many times, that have been counterpointed by so many different people, that it feels like it really is just being repeated so to reaffirm their own beliefs, and others who agree with them.

To be fair though, nobody on the anti side said they didn't care about IRL pedophilia, just that this was also an issue to them. it would be a logically fallacy to accuse them of not caring about IRL pedos just because they're arguing against what they are.

It would be like saying that because some people argue about what level of etiquette should be necessary when talking to others online that they don't care about conversational etiquette IRL. It's possible to care about both, and it's completely possible (and likely) that they get just as involved with IRL etiquette as they do with the online side if they care that much about it, but right now, the person is talking about online since that's what the discussion is about.

No. 510161

the whole point I brought up lolicon art and fandom was more to put out feelers for different arguments on the subject, and what/how other people are bothered (or unbothered) by seeing these things in art circles. wasn't really aiming to prove anything.
my personal opinion is that these kinds of problems aren't just straightforward 'anime creates pedos/criminals/antisocial behavior' because it's definitely a multifaceted problem. I understand that because vulnerable subjects are involved, it DOES invoke strong emotions, anger, etc. from both sides. it IS very frustrating that we can't come up with a clear answer - not just here in internet discussion - but in cross-disciplinary investigations into the problem.
the studies >>509856 linked use psychoanalysis and statistical data analysis methods to piece together complex human behaviors and patterns that are difficult to make sense of individually. Both articles conclude that there is a relationship between content online and antisocial behavior, but neither can 100% say one causes the other, one makes the other worse, and instead bring up many other aspects of human society, socialization, and sexuality that also contribute to these factors.

I definitely don't think that lolcow is frequented by academic researchers, but it is by people that consume and make art on the internet. and I'm sure those of us who like anime/manga/art have come across content that makes us uncomfortable but for which we're not sure how to maneuver (ex. Range Murata and CLAMP, beautiful art and compelling stories sprinkled with discomfort).
in the realm of art communities, it just bothers me that there are a lot of black and white arguments of 'this person drew giyutan, this person ships shieth, this person drew a child-coded suggestive image == everyone block and report their ass' as if it holds the same gravity as more heinous acts… or works to possibly normalize them. I'm beginning to think that art communities are more emotionally driven than anything to start raising a stink about how this is bad, you should feel bad, everyone look at bad thing and agree with me or you're just as bad as them (ex. "if you follow __ block me", "i can't believe __ is following __, i thought they were better than that"). how kids are shaped by the internet is a serious and complex issue, and I'm annoyed that it's being packaged in such a stupid way. I think as >>509802 said, it's not possible to assume everyone that likes __ is a pedo OR everyone that likes __ understands its real-world repercussions if one was to act on it. instead maybe it's important to make a decision on each individual in your own fandom/art space.

I'm not looking to defend pedophiles/ddlg/etc and explicitly pedophilic art, especially after working with children and knowing people that deal with childhood abuse cases, but more figuring out how art and artists that we frequently see on social media affect us and the rest of the internet. I don't think there's a definitive answer, but I'm tired of the morality police making small artists feel like shit for drawing some stupid fanarts or liking an artist and thinking they're right and changing the world with their call out. I don't think they are fully correct and using guilt and shame to drive small artists out isn't the way to go. but I also could have been missing something, and I wanted to make sure I wasn't also overreacting either.

No. 510162

>>510155

See and I think that that's a great question that opens up a lot of interesting points and questions . so if it's not a real person nobodies getting hurt, but there's still the question of whether associating sexual pleasure with symbols that represent children could be bad (i.e in the case of someone getting off to loli-porn), or whether or not you think it could potentially lead to something worse down the line (law of diminishing returns). Obviously if you pass by it or read something that happens to include depictions of pedophilia, like reading lolita, or some of Haruko Ichikawa's work that's not going to suddenly put you on the path to pedo. it's an examination of an important issue that's plagued that world for thousands of years. But if someone's getting off to ichikawas work, is that bad/wrong?

Japan has an entire subculture fethishizing cuteness and childishness but does that automatically translate to pedo, or is it just that they don't have the same associations with those things that those in other countries might?

It's a similar line of questioning to whether we should give IRL pedophiles fake child porn or child sex dolls as 'outlets' That also leads to the question of whether just anybody who interacts with that content sexually long term could develop a dangerous or unhealthy fixation with cp/cartoon cp, or if it's like drugs or alcohol and there's a certain amount of previous issues that create a risk factor.
There's so many factors, I'm not sure if it's really possible to boil it down into a simple, is it real kids or not

You both said it well.
Also I agree with that anon who said/ questioned what it is to explore that adults consume fictional stories which sexualize children. To me, that's the thing that makes it uncomfortable: those sexualized children are usually paired with an adult, and the sexual relationship/ overall relationship between those characters is not questioned (that the child might be not feeling safe and is sometimes scared of it). Those children usually cope with it pretty well (at least that's the impression I have) and actually handle the relationship like adults. (Although they might be totally inexpierenced and therefore shy. But that's also a usual trope in sex fiction about adults.) It is just so one-dimensional and totally fitted to the adult experience. All the while it's never really adressed that teenager have to deal with their own sexuality on a whole different level like adults – and they usually explore theirs with peers of their own age. (Although they may fantasize about adult stars they're stans of. But who of you didn't as teenager.) It's never about the children as human beeings, they are only objects of desire. And that is just wrong, dehumanizing someone and turn them into an object.

This. Arguing about the freedom to draw pedophilic artwork and how it isn’t an issue because it is fantasy, boils down to why do you even want to draw children being molested in the first place. why do you find the idea of children arousing

I don’t care if anime kids don’t actually look like kids, lolicons are drawn to them because they know that they are depictions of children, and have often admitted that what they find particularly arousing is that they are corrupting what it is typically innocent

Why do you draw bloodied bodies and gore? Why do you draw violent art? Nobody really owes an explanation for whatever they draw and nobody has to put up their whole character history up for internet strangers. It's not my business. Maybe they secretly have a torture chamber for kids or maybe they feel the child characters symbolize something they lack from their life. I don't know and sometimes they don't know either. When I was drawing edgy, immoral shit I was in the pits of depression and wanted to have control over something.

The discussion about this stagnates pretty hard at times because some people are talking about pedophilic art being semi-realistic toddler porn, some people think about 16-year old cartoon characters because they're ~minors~. But it's a good example of how policing art is a slippery slope, when you get everyone to agree that drawing loli/shotacon is degenerate and bad you'll get them to agree on all the derivatives as well. When all of the 17-20 year olds in this thread turn 28 and still like the same characters they did 10 years ago and there's a new generation of kids calling them a pedo, they'll know what I mean.

If you're against this, stay off the internet. It's not a hugbox for all kinds of degenerates, and it shouldn't be. Don't cry about "policing art" when nobody told you to post your shit in the first place.
If anyone has reason to believe you have a child torture chamber or would want one, then they're not somehow wrong in voicing that your work is nasty. No one cares if it's just that you're just ~depressed~ and you somehow can't think of a better symbol for that than kids in sexual situations. Either learn how to be creative in ways that don't make you look like a pedo, or be mature enough to accept and understand the reactions you get for the things you choose to draw.
I don't care about 16 year old cartoon characters because I'm not some Twitter shipper, by the way. The slippery slope argument is tired and disingenuous. We all know the difference between some Voltron characters and the shit in Comic LO. Anyone who pretends not to probably just doesn't like you personally, and is looking for any excuse to come down on you. No one else is convinced they're the same.
>When all of the 17-20 year olds in this thread turn 28 and still like the same characters they did 10 years ago and there's a new generation of kids calling them a pedo, they'll know what I mean.
If you had a crush on Dora The Explorer when you were a little kid, and you feel the need to loudly declare you still have a crush on her at 36 years old, things are looking weird for you, and no one is wrong to be creeped out. Sorry.

Being a rapist requires action. Being a pedophile just requires the attraction. It's literally that simple.
If someone had an obvious fetish for, wrote stories and/or drew images of dogs (or other animals) being raped, anyone would call them a zoophile. Whether they've actually tried fucking dogs in real life is irrelevant, because it's about the paraphilia itself.

looking at unrealistic fictional characters is still not pedophilia, nor does it make you into one. if someone can't draw the line between what they enjoy in fiction (even a casual viewer will see a shit ton of violence and murder in most media, which is apparently a "more normal" taboo to depict) vs what they enjoy in real life then they have some serious problems.

pulling up a definition isn't a counter argument, definitions are usually pretty generalized and only form a basis for the understanding of the word, it doesn't go into details on purpose (also for fucks sake it's literally what onision did all the time in his videos).

No. 510461

>>510455
Unrealistic in what sense? If characters are clearly meant to be children, and the artists and viewers are imagining them as such and sexualizing them, what makes things not pedophilic? Remember, pedophilia is attraction to children, not just being an actual rapist. It's not just a simple definition, any psychologist will back this up. It's called a paraphilia for a reason.
Just like anon's image in >>510449 says, this does not exclude drawings of children or fictional children. You're still thinking of children. The fantasy itself is a problem. You have a serious problem if anything relating to children turns you on, period.
Also, it's kind of funny to compare anon's argument to Onision, considering your position is a lot closer to his, given his history.

>The brain, it seems, does not make much of a distinction between reading about an experience and encountering it in real life; in each case, the same neurological regions are stimulated. Keith Oatley, an emeritus professor of cognitive psychology at the University of Toronto (and a published novelist), has proposed that reading produces a vivid simulation of reality, one that “runs on minds of readers just as computer simulations run on computers.” Fiction — with its redolent details, imaginative metaphors and attentive descriptions of people and their actions — offers an especially rich replica. Indeed, in one respect novels go beyond simulating reality to give readers an experience unavailable off the page: the opportunity to enter fully into other people’s thoughts and feelings.


https://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/18/opinion/sunday/the-neuroscience-of-your-brain-on-fiction.html

The brain does not differentiate between fiction and reality. Your mind/ conciousness may know that a drawing is not an actual children, but your simple brain still reacts to it like a photograph. It's not an argument to say it's not pedo bc it's just a drawing.

kind of different than the stuff that usually gets posted to this thread but i wanted to talk about this particular doll customizer. i see her getting praised a lot in the community, but imo her work is really amateurish. like this video in particular, she just slapped a clunky plastic kettle on the doll, completely hiding majority of the dress with it. i think making the dress itself look like a kettle or just using the patterns from the pokemon would have worked much better. also generally her face ups are pretty bland, and this color choice for the hair doesn't really work.

No. 510529

>>510518
Yeah, The color of the hair seems to clash with the coloration of the tea cup lid's rim. It seems like the initial idea was taken too literally. Instead of trying to use the source material as inspiration, she tried to make an almost carbon copy except for it being a doll. If she had taken the original source and then done something with the hair and dress it would have added so much more. then she could still put the doll alongside or sitting on the teapot, incorporate it as a prop or set-piece for the finished design, but it wouldn't just be a purple doll plopped into a teapot. (the paint job on the tea pot is nice though)

No. 510535

There's a very noticeable difference between some petty "this bitch stole my art style" callouts and trying to brand someone as a pedophile because of muh cartoon children. One of them makes the internet scoff for a moment, one of them 100% ruins their reputation forever and possibly traumatizes them and exiles them from the society. I still don't think that drawn cartoon characters amount to actual living, breathing humans at all because they don't even look the same, just like people who think disney animal characters are hot probably wouldn't want to fuck actual lions.

>>510486
Did you even read this article or just cherrypick the parts that suit you the best? The effects can be best observed in people with a certain temperament, it's not an universal truth. Of course fiction might feel like the real thing. It's called immersion. There's no denying that. But the intensity of the experience is nothing like real life. You most likely won't be traumatized by watching a thriller. But you could probably be traumatized by a real video of someone being killed on tape. Just because fiction can and will stimulate certain parts of your brain it doesn't mean it's 100% real to you and you know it. A horrible scene in a movie might bum you out for a while but you wouldn't be traumatized like you would during the real life encounter.

This retarded "but studies say that fiction forces us to do bad things!!" discourse is just a rehash of the "video games/TV/movies cause violence" hysteria from the decades of the past. I can't believe that it's the barely underage zoomers driving it today instead of middle-aged soccer moms who want to blame something else than their shitty upbringing.

If you get turned on by children, you're a pedophile. That's what it means. No psychologist has ever said there's an exception for fictional children.

The people saying you are one are just stating a fact, and they are also free to voice their disgust, because the internet is an open space where we can express our opinions. Feel free to block and ignore those you disagree with, or just keep your more abhorrent interests private.

>But the intensity of the experience is nothing like real life.


It's not about the intensity nor is my point only valid if stuff traumatizes you. I've never said that. I only said (and therefore linked this article) that the things your brain receives and how it reacts is different from this what your mind thinks how you are handling input. And that there are signs that your brain learns from fictional as it learns from real life experience.

So, you're pedo no matter what you think of yourself, when you turned on by real and/ or fictional kids. (Like, there are people out there who would fondly say that they're no racists. But, to give a somewhat recent example, when they see some asian looking people they still back off bc of that new noro virus making its round in China. Totally something a non-racist would do.) That's my viewpoint. Live with it or die mad.

>my own style of pedo
No one said this, pedo is pedo. the problem me and others are having is that loud brainlet highschoolers are trying to LARP as psychologists, acting as an nuisance for all artists when their claims aren't well researched and dubious in general. Especially a subject like Health/Psychology which needs to be handled carefully or else everyone will be miserable when they don't have to.

Look imma powerlevel here When I was a high schooler I got into yuri and thought I was lesbian. Later on in college I attempted a relationship with another girl who was also interested but none of us got anywhere at the end. Realized I got more horny when I saw real life dicks, and wanted the real one in me. So that's why I 100% agree when someone says 'cartoons don't reference your sexuality' because art is about making things look ideal and whatnot.

'3D pig disgusting' is a thing for a reason; I see this as both for keeping things in topic (discuss the animation/comic only, don't talk make it all about your irl irrelevant hi-jinks) as well as a reminder for putting the boundary between fiction and real life.

No. 511647

as long as this thread is still in the trash. i think people forget that being a pedo or rapist or murderer relies on other peoples' knowledge. calling people who draw/like lolishit pedos when they haven't committed any pedo crimes or confessed anything is the same level of retarded as calling someone who draws/likes noncon a rapist when they haven't raped anyone. it's just an assumption at that point. is it morally questionable? sure, but you can't expect people not to defend against your moral objection when you're asserting they're doing something illegal. plus, calling someone who hasn't hurt children a pedo removes the power the word has.

Also that guy was calling out all artists, not Shadman specifically. If he was shitting on just Shadman, he'd be more direct or bring up shit he did like drawing children that actually exist irl. He may have just brought up 1 Shadman- but his posts weren't 100% for Shad.

If you want to seriously help da childrenz then participate in school speeches/child protection organizations, inform boomer parents about the internet lingos like discord as well as basic safety like "internet never forgets; your posts and pics can be copy/saved by others and it will multiply to infinity so be cautious and not put out personal info" or recommend Parental Block programs to put in the kid's phones or PCs.

Pfft no. He's still around, though it seems he's back to making unfunny joke comics and the occasional flavor of the month porn. He may have put the pedoshit down because it was giving him too much heat. I never thought Shadman was an actual pedophile but he does have issues with attention-seeking. He's fascinated with Nazis despite being part black and from a country where that kind of imagery is a massive no-no. I wouldn't be surprised if Shad was the kid that got ignored/bulled in school so much that he created this edgy persona to stand out. In his early internet day, he supposedly drew porn of his mother and claimed to be a convicted rapist with kids while drawing anime gore porn. He wants to be seen as this hardcore badass without boundaries but it's obvious he just really, really likes people to notice him.

shadman definitely tries to be this cool hardcore dude who doesn't give a damn about rules, but i think people on both sides of the art argument can agree that drawing porn of child actors crosses the line, it's disgusting and pedophilic. i generally find porn art of non consenting adults pretty weird too, when someone draws someone so famous it definitely won't reach them it doesn't seem so bad, but when it's something like youtuber shipping art (especially when fans keep mentioning the ships in comments too) it's pretty disgusting. i wish more youtubers spoke up against this stuff when this kinda fanart just started to be more prevalent, people are so entitled to their entertainment these days that there's no stopping anyone from being gross about their favorite youtuber right in front of them.

I agree. Once you bring a real person into it, it's over. With that said, I really wish it was more discouraged to make porn art or porn fics of REAL people like youtubers,kpop idols, etc.
I find it really creepy that strangers on the internet fantasize about you wanting to fuck your co-worker or whoever. And some fans even go out of their way to actually send their degenerate shit to their idols.
It's really fucked. But I guess they may not want to say anything about it so that they can either keep their fans happy or so it doesn't dissolve into some shitstorm drama about policing what people draw. Cuz you know how those go.

again you missed the point, you can't simply assume someone is sexually attracted to children. you wouldn't know unless they told you, or engaged in pedophilia. you're trying to make the comparison more direct when it makes no sense to do so. a rapist is going to have a fucked up mental mindset and they act on sexual impulse, just like pedos. assuming someone is a pedo when there's no basis removes the power of the word. just like if someone molests a child it doesn't make them a pedo, but there's no issue with calling them that imo, because the danger of pedos is the danger they pose to children, not their thoughts. also this whole definition of pedo meaning someone who's sexually attracted to children seems kind of MAP to me, especially since it used to be used in a positive context in greek society.

the thing is, pedophilia being defined as an attraction of children is for a reason. of course we can say not all pedophiles act out, but real ones always have the possibility. it's a mental illness and untreatable one at that, and i'm not saying we need to have sympathy for their situation, but that they need to seek help to control their impulses, or even fight down the symptoms. you could of course say that loli/shota material can be used to redirect their impulses, but i feel like in the cases of someone really being one it would just fan the flames and draw them to action eventually.

Stop romanticising rape. Calling it non-con is trying to make it seem cutesy and fun, if you’re going to defend the desire to sexualise abhorrent things in art then at least call them what they are. Hiding behind smoke screens by using terms like ‘non-con’ and ‘loli’ is disingenuous if you then go to defend the practice.
Non-consensual is literally fucking rape, so call it what it is.

Let's not start the 'romanticizing rape' thing. Rape/ravishment/noncon has been one of the most common fetishes in both genders since the beginning of the recorded word, probably before then. It's an undeniable, provable fact. It's not indicative of rape culture, or encouraging men to go out and rape women because 'they all want it'. You can call it vile all you want, and that's fine. If it's not for you than it's not for you, but that doesn't make people with rape fetishes rapists. Rapists are rapists.

The term non-con sprang up when autists like you wouldn't stop screeching about how horrible the kink is. It's a separation between a harmless fictional kink and the real-life crime. Take that energy and go rail against the hundreds of thousands of bodice ripper romance novels written by middle-aged women or shoujo mangaka.

"Loli" comes from "lolita complex" which is literally the Japanese word for a female-attracted pedophile. By that logic 'pedo' is romanticizing slang for 'pedophile'.

No one has said that fetishising rape makes you a rapist, but you need to take a good hard look at yourself as to why you find something so disgusting and unforgivable in any capacity attractive.

>inb4 wahhhh don’t kink shame!!
If you don’t want to be shamed for your degeneracy then don’t upload your fetish work, artwork within the public sphere is fair game

Drawing it for yourself? Fine, I find it degenerate but ultimately cannot stop the actions of others nor enforce my morals onto them, but putting it into the public sphere shows that you are uploading it also for the consumptions of others, hoping that others find enjoyment in the abhorrent fetishisations (incest, pedophilia, rape, racism, bestiality to name a common few) and you cannot expect viewers to hold their tongue unless it is to praise you; the internet is just as public as a billboard advertisement, and people can criticise what they view in the public sphere as they see fit

That’s the thing, they aren’t sharing. And from my initial research it’s really expensive for something that might not pan out.

So echoing >>511729, same points and some people who go to direct to manu don’t like sharing with anyone who isn’t a friend because experience can vary differently from person to person and depending who your manu rep is. I’ve seen two people use the same factory and get different results cuz their reps are different, and sometimes factories can take on too much work or not a high enough MOQ (min order quantity) that the factory goes down in quality. It’s also not really a snobbery thing, like building a relationship takes a lot of work with a manu, especially a foreign one where their English usually isn’t the best, so to be expected just to be given a manu’s contact by some people ignores the work the other person puts into developing that relationship. Plus now that working with Chinese manufacturers is common, some people exploit and treat them like an Amazon and expect like they can do a low MOQ or the highest quality but for cheapest price, so most people also don’t give out contacts cuz what if their manu gets screwed over by some dude who does a chargeback unwarranted and drops your name as a referral?

There ARE alternatives tho so it’s not that secretive really. The biggest one is using a middleman, who has developed the relationship and services already so they can handle all the nitty gritty for you. I use one for my enamel pins and like, as someone who makes them, I feel a lot of people who use middlemen get kind of looked down upon by other pin artists? Like going direct to manu is cheaper sure, but the middleman I use can do a lot on their end, namely quality control and boarding pins, so I don’t have to waste my time like baylee to do it on my own and I can continue to design without worry. Paying a middleman is basically insurance that your shit won’t get fucked up.

Group orders are another and that’s basically a group of artists using a manu in one giant order to save on shipping and costs, they’re more difficult to find and it depends on the individual who runs them (like I’m lucky to find one run by a girl who does file checks, she doesn’t have to). There’s less insurance on this part and sometimes people are shitty but it’s also another way to get overseas merch

Yeah it’s very rare you can get a pin not manufactured in China but there are factories that do do them in NA (mostly Canada and Mexico) and some US companies do pins that look like enamel but are sometimes just prints with epoxy on them. The thing with them usually is that they are $$$ because of things like cost of labor is higher or environmental regulations. You’d be better off using a reputable middleman if you’re gonna pay $$$

Thanks for the write up, and to other responses as well. That’s pretty helpful. I did find a middle man (whoever suggested Zap, they have a sister site for only pins now) and that would make me feel more comfortable when buying because I can speak English and the lines of communication will be more clear than if I wrote to someone of middling or no English understanding.

I can see how using a middle-man would be looked down upon but it seems better to have that service which may guarantee better quality in the end.

Another issue I have is with fan art pins. I love them too but how does SE not send a C&D? Like IPs of FF, KH, etc. It would be fun to make fanart pins but that seems like a grey area that could have legal issues later.

Like, I looked at a lot of the Disney pin culture out of curiosity and people who make “fantasy pins”, unlicensed Disney art pins, will only make a very small amount of them, like they’ve found manus who will make a MOQ of less than 10 sometimes and they’re very expensive so they don’t make a ton of profit. They’re small enough to where Disney doesn’t usually bother taking them down but it’s a risk taken by fan pin makers. Separately, some people will fund through Kickstarter and they’re notoriously lax about letting copyrighted things in, yet companies will find you and issue C&D’s if you tag the characters or franchise, I’ve seen some get taken down completely during or after the campaign and it’s just gonna show as a dead campaign on your creator profile.

I’m on mobile so it’s the biggest pain in the fucking ass to cite all the studies, but it’s not pearl clutching to dare to suggest that associating pleasure with rape is a harmful practice - the increase of couple acting out these ‘fantasies’ is proof in itself that fantasy does in fact affect reality, there are men out there who want to rape their girlfriends but it’s supposedly okay because it’s ‘consensual non-consent’ (let’s not ignore the fact that many of these women have been raped and/or molested in the past)

I think this is part of why there's so much semantic arguing. I also get the other side of what anon is saying. If pedophilia is labeled like a sexuality it normalizes it and allows people to victimize themselves. Many people treat it like being gay.

Thank you beloved farmhand.

Does anyone here use watercolor pencils for adding detail? Do you activate them with water afterward or just leave it as is? If you use them for a base sketch, does it ever mess up what you had planned or generally looks good?

Jackson's is having a Faber Castell sale atm so I was thinking I'd get some. Either 12 or 24.

Seconding Stillman & Birn. I love my Zeta sketchbooks. The soft cover one I have lays flat and closes flat without issue. I do pencil, watercolor, and xylene transfers on both sides of the pages and it doesn't show through unless you're holding the page up to the light. Plus, there's next to no rippling with watercolor.

If you want something with no bleed through for markers, then Crescent has a line called Rendr.

Do Zeta sketchbooks hold up well to marker? I love copics but I've yet to find a bound sketchbook I like with them. I tried using the Illo sketchbook for a while, but I found the quality of the paper was nothing like the claims made by every YT artist under the sun.

Rendr sketchbooks are nice for markers, but they're not the best if you like smooth blends. The no-bleed quality of the paper keeps marker ink from blending smoothly. It's nice if you like a more cel-shaded, layered look.

No. 512382

>>512349
Beyond a colorless AD marker, I don't have much in the way of markers. A test with a brush tip Copic Multiliner shows no bleed through with multiple passes. My best guess is that blending wouldn't be as good as it would be on Paris Bleedproof. The Zeta series is hot press, but it just doesn't have that slickness. Possibly close to what you might get with Bristol paper.

Unless another anon gets back to you before me, I'll try to remember to do a test tomorrow when I have access to some markers and get back to you.

I sometimes do, I have an old set of caran d’ache watercolor pencils and sometimes use water to blend it a little to make it more soft but the colors are a little more saturated than my paints so I don’t go too heavy on it. I do like using watercolors and pencils together, especially the low pigmented ones like prismacolor col-erase and verithins, they blend in with the watercolor very well. Tho now mostly I use the watercolor pencils to do doll face ups since I got into watching them on YT and now just do them for fun lol

Chris Hong started teaching on Skillshare and I enjoy her approach in portrait since it’s very painterly like and it’s different than people on YT who show how to draw with line instead of value.

This was mentioned in the holly brown thread but TwistedDisaster has a GoFundMe asking for $3k for a new computer that she says she needs for her digital art commissions, but she was just given an iPad from her parents a couple months ago and has been doing most of her commissions on procreate.

She’s claims she is poor, right? A computer capable of doing commissions, plus new monitors, keyboard, mouse, mousepad, and headset would not come to 3k for minimum specs, unless she was buying a screen tablet for the computer as well, THEN you might break 3k. Or she is buying all new parts and building it herself, or she got a quote from some tech-monkey at Best Buy.

Also, she is choosing the stupidest time to get a new computer. PC parts like graphics cards and processors are going to be releasing new hardware after the new consoles release, so buying now is moronic. Wait a year if you want to beg for money for the best stuff.

It annoys me when artists, especially on instagram, feel the need to post the same drawing with multiple versions.
I included Creepshow's recent feed(the posts dotted red are what i mean) because i noticed she had a process sketch, lineart, in program, and "finished" piece with the original copied twice.
Is this for more engagement or supposed to be considered a tutorial? cause it looks super lazy.

No. 512664

It's because she isn't an artist. She uses art for her shit-tier callout videos, but it is hard to promote those on Instagram, so she posts 'art' instead. Comparing her work from years ago to now, the only difference is she went digital and started using a line stability tool. She has zero fundamentals, she doesn't do studies, and she doodles so then she doesn't have to work too hard to get b-roll for her videos. And even then, she has to beg her fanbase to send in their work, for free, because she can't be fucked to make another 2-hr Procreate sketch of another gay dude in heels for her 50th 'this person is bad' video.

Alcohol markers will bleed through. They appear to blend okay, but there is definitely something going on with the sizing in the paper. At first, I thought it might be the xylene I'd used on the other side, but a test on a clean page produced the same results. Purple to peach is on-the-page blending, and brown to peach is tip-to-tip blending. Smaller image is the bleed through. Hope this helps.

But while it would just be an understandable action from an emotional person, it's still a stupid mistake from a public figure.
At this point, so soon after the death, the only inoffensive image to post would be Qinni's own art and to make it as little about yourself as possible.

Depends on factors like time zone of artist, (they may have heard quicker if the time of announcement was closer to sunrise/morning in their area) where they sat in qinni's circle (friend of a friend hears before twitter would) skill level, experience with this kind of artif they work in digital whether or not they have previous drawings with the subject matter in question that they can copy paste from

(digital takes out a metric fuck-ton of the concept/thumbnail/general planning and composition time since you can move things around as you render them). 3-6 hours isn't really a big stretch for such a simple piece with familiar elements. ZHC and TheBoxOfficeArtist have done some crazy things in 24 hours, this would be a lot easier in comparison.

As far as people using her death for points, I think it depends from person to person. I know some people who do post online in response to personal tragedy to cope/as a sincere response, and some who do it for the attention.

If your first thought when something like this happens is to find another human being to talk to/find comfort in, then it wouldn't be surprising for people who either solely have their 'people' online, or don't have people irl who know who qinni is/understands what she meant to them to post to a community that does. I mean, we've done the same thing here by mentioning that she dies right? something sad happened, you go to your community Human psychology is weird, you never know what someone will do.

No. 513788

I'm pretty amused by everyone in this thread wagging their finger and acting shocked at twitter artists and pretending to be so sad, when qinni announced how little time she had left most people in this thread were speculating how she was a liar and faking for attention. Now all of you want the chance to get angry that others aren't being sensitive to the tragedy. And we all know it's mostly the same people posting in this thread.

>>513669
I used to enjoy Kasey's art but it keeps getting grosser and uglier. Her "silly" faces used to be exactly that, now they're sliding off her characters' heads. I wish she would do a hard reset on her style and take a look at her own old stuff as a study. She used to inspire me, now I can't make it through a video or look at the finished product more than a few seconds.

This one rubbed me the wrong way really hard. "You might know Qinni from the covers of The Rosewood Chronicles"?

Actually, I would definitely say she is in that particular circle of the internet. That's part of why she ended up doing Noodlerella's book covers. Also, even if she wasn't, it's pretty tacky to make the focus about what she meant to her book series, especially so soon after the announcement.

No. 513978

I'd like to think that people are meaning well but social media has fostered this bizarre environment where people are almost obligated to make their feelings public.

Maybe I'm too naive in thinking that people aren't being attention grabbing on purpose, but it's still going way over the line. Especially toward Qinni's brother, it's ridiculous.

No. 513996

Sorry to say but this one is an overreaction. Qinni did the art for her books and this person is obviously addressing their audience, who likely don’t have a crossover with the DeviantArt/online creator world. Wouldn’t you mourn a collaborator?

That’s an overreaction. The internet causes a lot of people to be suspect when people say they’re ill. There was another artist who did it for clout and it made people less sympathetic as time went on. Qinni wasn’t like that (I didn’t know or follow her) but it’s just how it is online now.

It is sad she passed and I don’t like all these sympathy collaborations. I hope they don’t get off the ground.

No. 514012

it's because it redirects the attention to their art and is a scheme most of the time to get death sympathy clicks. a lot of people started their posts with "i didn't know her but" when talking about her and lot of the "memorial" art was obviously really rushed to get it out as fast as they can.
also most of these people aren't actually that close to her to that they would need to grieve, parasocial relationships don't count.

I went trough Qinnis Twitter and Insta last night, just to get along with her passing (we didn't know each other but I still felt sorry for her and hoped she would get through this) and it's so weird to watch short videos of her smiling from just a few days ago, and the comment sections all over the place with comments from days ago wishing her strength and then new ones where people wishing her farewell.

It is absolutely not an overreaction. If you accuse someone of faking their terminal illness without any hard evidence, you are being a complete piece of shit. End of story.

Sorry, but the person in that position deserves a fuck of a lot more empathy than the cunts wrongly accusing them of being a munchie without proof.

No. 514330

>>514313
1. To be completely honest I would be, as a woman, very uncomfortable drawing chubby girls for someone with a fat/inflation fetish, it would feel like they're roping me into their fetish play. However she could've just refused that she's not interested in drawing that particular commission and that would've been that on that, but she had to go and be immature about it. Even worse if the user wasn't a actually fat fetishist. I mean I've had creepy dudes ask me for art on some really gross fetishes and it does creep one out but it's not hard to just ignore or tell them no without being a cunt because it'll come back to bite you in the ass later down the road.

2. I've seen this "did u know men draw balloon anime tiddy wrong!!!!" take so many times it's boring, everyone knows that a suction cleavage with gravity-defying tits is done wrong but who really cares. It's as tired as repeating how unrealistic Barbie's proportions are, it's just petty and reeks of fishing for quick RTs.
