tbh I do wish there was an active place to post art and receive critique without interference from teenagers who'll hate anything that isn't porn. The whole "soul/soulless" invention has completely killed discussion on /ic/, since chicken scratched porn will always have soul but anything above a beginner level will be soulless.
Lolcow definitely isn't the place to post our art though, 4chan/kf retards already come here hoping to get funny screenshots, any critique thread would be full of them.

I believe you can find some pieces in the board-tan thread on /meta/ and the redraw thread on this board.

This exactly it, she removes a rib and makes the pelvis bone wider, while giving the character magical ab definition without adding any definition to any other body part. The last one has some magical thigh gap, again without any muscle, there is more fat to the thighs that magically float against gravity and don't touch in the middle. Somehow her arm got skinnier too. It's so inconsistent it hurts. Someone already pointed out the breasts are magically higher too for no reason. It's pure fetish anatomy and it's sad a woman came up with this.

How is the first one unattainable for you? I’d say aside from rather large hips she is pretty normal. Her waist isn’t that much smaller compared to her other proportion, neither are her tits that big. I’d say she’s even got a bit fat in her arms and legs. If you think being literally an average size is unattainable, I’m worried what a ”normal” body looks for you.

No. 545719

>>545713
Because that's usually what men are (excluding fat and chubby men), most young men ARE super skinny or buff, most young women however aren't extremely curvy with magically perky everything so claiming that this is the norm is shitty and wrong

Oh lolcow you sure love your black and white huh
I'm not saying it's unattainable, it's just simply a body type a lot of women can't get or something most women would consider to be curvy or fit. Nothing about how all women are fat therefore the "normal" would be fat or whatever you delusional farmers think anytime you disagree with someone

By your logic no bodytype is normal because every woman’s body is different. If she drew a lanky bitch with small tits that would still be ”not normal” as some women aren’t lanky and have D cups. I would still classify the first body as normal because despite is being more on the curvy end, I find it to be rather realistic portrayal of a healthy woman’s body. Sure every woman has her own measurements but I see women like this or close to this walking around daily, it’s not even a rare bodytype, thus I’d say it can be classified as ”normal”.

No. 545730

>>545726
Do you look at all these women naked or something? The curviness wouldn't be an issue if added features like no thigh gap, no perky tits, more definition to the thighs and arms, etc was a thing, but the average woman definitely isn't walking around with double D perky tits, huge hips and ass with no cellulite and stretch marks, a thigh gap and flat stomach, if they were then the plastic surgery and fitness industry would be put out of business

The issue is the fact that "flawed" women's bodies are considered so offensive to the art community and it gets boring after a while and doesn't help women's self esteem at all that the average artist claims bodies most women can only wish to have is normal, it also fucks up the standards to the point that attractive women are now considered average thanks to stuff like this

No. 545734

>>545730
You do realize it’s a fucking drawing right? What do youl want, to add stretchmarks? I mean she got no public hair eirher if we go down that route. Obviously art is gonna have some stylization and everyone fucking knows it. There’s probably nothing more pathetic that to let a drawing dictate your self-esteem. Everyone knows it’s not real and it’s not even marketed as such. I was only talking about her proportions and no offence but how many women in their 20 have hanging tits? I mean you made such a big deal to point it out twice now, makes me think you’re compensating. If you wanna talk about what crushes the self-esteem of women, look knto the Ig models who photoshop their bodies to a perfection but then try to market them as ”authentic” or don’t disclose the truth at least. Art is understood to be fiction, a wish fullfillment, it’s not meant to reflect realism perfectly. Like yea she got some smooth ass legs but that’s just stylization, not a judgement towards women’s legs in real life, but when a celebrity oils uo their booty and removes all cellulite, that’s marketed as raw and real, so I would defenitely stop bitching about a mere drawing.

Anyway if you're doubting women's self esteems aren't affected by what art and anatomy is presented as normal then you should do some rethinking, it wasn't even until now all artists are drawing the same exact extreme body. Why is the art community not allowed to discuss this issue?

No. 545740

>>545738
Because there’s nothing about the first picture that is so outlandish that it would be worth whining about. I mean it said a ”normal” body not a ”realistic” body. Those are 2 different things. If she said that the first one was a realistic body, then I would obviously call it bullcrap, since it’s got some very blatant stylistic choices going for it. But she didn’t say that, she said it’s a normal body type which I again would agree with, because you could see a woman with those proportions walking around out there. The problem is that you’re arguing a defenition here of what a ”normal” is despise the fact that a ”normal” body can be many things. The girl in the first picture is of normal weight, height with normal sized waist and normal sized boobs, a lot of things abour the first body can be seen in the realms of ”normal” thus you can classify the body itself as ”normal”.

No. 545742

>>545740
and normal skincolor

No. 545744

>>545740
Again the issue isn't with her proportions it's a reoccurring trend in the art community that is the problem of only drawing "perfect" bodies that are just carbon copies of each other with varying ass and tit size. The issue with presenting it as normal and then claiming more extreme versions are the curvy ones is the issue why do many men and women have such distorted views on what women's bodies look like. I will again ask why aren't we allowed to talk about this? Yeah IF models are an issue too but this also contributes to the issue.

No. 545746

>>545744
Most artist starting out aren’t illustrators or animators so they won’t be bothered trying various body types or even facial features (squash and stretch), IG artists or artists like Sakimi have a set body they’ve learned how to draw and don’t deviate. That’s it.
Look also at Loish.

If you want a variety look at traditional painting, not IG or illustrative work.

No. 545747

>>545746
Well then why are you here? What is the issue with me discussing this?

No. 545749

Ok but in all seriousness, if any of you complaining about the proportions were being paid as much as SC to draw the same bimbo anime girls every month you wouldn't even have a problem.

No. 545752

>>545744
We are allowed to talk about this, we are talking about this but I can still call you stupid for it. See I already explained the difference between normal and realistic, but you’re stull going at it. Obviously this body is meant to be normal within artistic interpetations. I mean the headsize is way bigger compared to normal head to body ratio of a real woman but that’s why it’s called semi-realism and not full blown realism. It’s meant to take liberties and it takes them and it’s marketed as fantasy and not representive orf a real life. You want to add realism to what’s meant to be stylized art, because of your own insecurities. I mean real people have lots of flaws, acne, bags under eyes, scars, rash, etc etc, but you never see artist drawing characters with acne, unless the acne is used as a visual cue for the characters role or personality which is usully bullied outcast. That’s because art =/= real life.

Ok but you and literally everyone else in this thread make it out like women aren't allowed to draw women in an unrealistic way.

censoring is a pretty strong word. you are free to draw whatever you want but we can still criticize your art. also, i don't think the anons here are whining because they're jealous of fictional skinny women, they're angry over the term 'normal'.

No. 545777

It's crazy how some people will read a negative or mixed thought on something, and then claim it's the same as "censoring" that thing.
Surely, if people were out to censor, they wouldn't even give free engagement by commenting. They'd just mass-report whatever it is until it gets deleted.
They should just come out and admit "I don't like when people dislike the things I like" instead of trying to portray themselves as free speech warriors.

>but at the same time turn on other artists at the drop of a hat if it means a Cancelling will remove the competition.
Yeah that's about it. Nothing gets you fame and/or validation faster than taking part in an canceling because it gives you a chance to show what a Good Person you are, unlike this bigot everyone wants to curb stomp for colouring in a tan character's skintone 0.5 shades lighter or something. Even with the current hour's Sakimichan controversy I'm betting that nobody is sincerely offended by what an ~unrealistic~ body type she's drawing, that's like being offended by Disney Princess proportions. It's a waste of time and hits no new ground because anyone can look at the Sakimichan body chart with half an eye open and say that it's exaggerated cartoon features that aren't even trying to be passed as realistic. The "normal" body is just how she draws "normal" bodies in contrast to the stylized pin up ones, it's not called "realistic body". Like it's fine and warranted if you think it's cringy and all but listing out all the anatomy flaws is beating a long dead horse and equivalent of writing an essay of how unrealistic Barbie's body proportions are for the nth time. I often doubt these people even genuinely hate artists like her for doing something bad or acting inappropriately, it always feels like it's an excuse to remove competition.

No. 545803

Sakimichan's anatomy is trash and that's all there is to say on the matter. Her "normal" is still basically a supermodel with a tiny waist and giant hips. It's rare for someone to be thin with hips that big without PS. I assume what she meant by normal was "physically possible in real life" not "average woman," because by no stretch of the imagination is that an average woman.

Anyway, can we talk about the puny hands? The fact that the collarbones are too straight and high up? The neck too far back? And the last one somehow has thighs the size of tree trunks that don't touch at all when her feet are together?

Okay you all need to shut the fuck up about clearly stylized art. I'm not even a fan of Sakimi but, unless you're constantly bitching about how Disney princess waists are ridiculously thin, or how the incredibles feet are minuscule tiny, honestly pull your head out of your ass. Exaggeration is one of the first things you learn in cartoon art/animation and just because you all don't like the fact that she draws double EE tits, thigh gap having, generic ass anime girls doesn't mean that she's exempt from stylization. The picture says "Normal" not "Realistic". No matter what your insecure asses think, that is normal as far as body types go.

No. 545932

>>545925
I tend to charitably assume that most of them are genuinely upset by it for some reason, like maybe it hits a specific insecurity they have or something, but it would be much better to work on the insecurity and learn take the intended positive message than to mount a futile campaign to train the entire internet in your preferred commenting style. Especially since they don't all agree? You can see other big name artists in the replies saying they either don't mind or actively like that sort of comment.

Half my feed is full of smaller artists who are always miserable because commenting culture has died and they don't get nice comments anymore. I can't help thinking all the big artists yelling at people for doing compliments wrong might have something to do with it.

These are both things that drive me nuts as a small-time artist. I waste a lot of time hunting in tumblr reblogs to see if anyone left me comments in their tags because of this stupid idea that commenting in the post is rude. Not to mention the insistence that you should never ever delete the caption, so I'm never sure if talking about my process or the characters will stop people sharing it because they don't want to reblog the wall of text.

And seriously, where am I supposed to get friendly crit now that it's taboo to put it in the comments? I actually appreciate when people tell me if I made a dumb anatomy mistake or something, but so many big artists tell everyone not to that all I get recently is radio silence or heart emojis.

I think part of the problem is the needs of big and small artists are too different. Big name artists (especially industry pros) are flooded with comments and have professional editors if they need crit, so I can see why they want to weed out the comments they don't like. Unfortunately, that means small artists are left yelling into the void, unable to tell if people like what they're doing or what they should improve because nobody talks to them.

i've watched a couple process videos of hers and the thing about sakimi is she can render like a beast but her sketches are off, which jacks up the whole thing. and since she's making bank off her pinups she's got no reason to improve her anatomy, so she probably won't

No. 545994

maybe i've seen older streams of hers but usually it's that her sketches start out fine, but as she renders she transforms it into ~pinup style~, aka the proportions get more and more coomer to appease her audience. maybe she just straight up starts out with that now since that's all she draws.

No. 546021

>>546010
I think Sakimichan's popularity has less to do with her as a person and more with her finding her niche at the right time and starting out on deviantart early. Deviantart's features and audience (daily deviations that put her art forward and young weebs being overly impressed by realistic rendering) played a really big part in how famous she got.

She's also good at adapting to current trends, imo. She used to draw a lot of pretty boy fujo stuff, and she's switched to braindead coomer shit because it's popular. Her style can be applied to anything since it just consists in washing out a figure with a diffuse white light and rendering it into oblivion, and that lets her always remain relevant. It's honestly impressive.

I think it has to do more with her work being a combination of four good traits to internet success. Highly rendered work, popular anime characters, porn and coming out in the early days of DA. An artist having any two of these would be pretty successful today but having all four in your favor is a true hit.

She gets 20-40k a month for drawing subpar porn. Not gonna lie, I'd fucking sacrifice all my artistic merits and draw sloppy anatomy with generic porn and panty shots if I got that kind of money for it. But I'm also certain that Sakimichan's success was lightning in a bottle because she's left a trail of imitators behind her who never made it as big, she just happened to be at the right place at the right time with her Disney drawings, then grew an audience and expanded it to oblivion with her porn fanart. It's clear as a day that she has pure talent and an eye for aesthetics but when she pumps out the patreon pieces multiple times a month she must cut all the corners she can with sketching and composing and go straight to the rendering to make it shiny and pretty. The audience she's selling it to aren't exactly high art enthusiasts and they don't care that the hands are miniscule or the tits are unrealistic so there would be no point in perfecting it as it would take up too much time. If it's killing her inside, she can at least sleep on a big pile of money.

exactly. exactly! all of the examples of comments make me insecure sometimes too, but i know it's because i'm insecure about my art in general and i'm prone to twisting things against my favor. that's not anyone else's problem or responsibility though. i can't imagine being so bratty as to say "when you compliment me i neurotically think of ways that it's actually an insult so YOU need to give me better compliments."

there's one exception i can think of though and that's if people are telling her these things as an excuse to not properly pay her for commissions. sometimes "you're so talented" rhetoric is code for "this is a fun easy gift for you and i assume you do it all the time anyway so can't you just do it for free for me?" but if that's the case she should have just said that.

I remember when she used to draw Naruto fanart in mid 2000s. She was a teenager back then and I was pretty impressed with her level of skill, and thought she was going to develop into some really interesting mature artist. If anyone showed me what she churns out nowadays, I wouldn't believe it's the same person, lol.

I knew sakimi’s work back when she was working for game companies up in Canada and tbh I respect she can make way much more money doing patreon and pinups and basically being her own boss.

Her style and wonky anatomy isn’t my taste but like considering how toxic working for companies can be, especially game companies, like props to her for making that paper

Have sakimi’s copycats ever been discussed here? If so please link me because I find them way more interesting. Especially the shameless ones who think people are stupid and won’t notice tracing.

Olchas is another copycat, with a patreon of 223.

i get that a lot of these artists hate to be called out and get those annoying "you're copying sakimichan" comments when their works are too similar, but this one did such an idiotic move. She made a journal entry in 2017 saying that sakimichan was the one copying HER. Not only was she a nobody, but her art was way worse 2 years ago than it is now. The journal said that sakimi stole her ideas, stole her lighting techniques, and way more..to cover her ass for the fact that she was the one who did all of that. In reality, olchas was copying sakimi in such a blatant way, in fact she still does it. I put some examples in the pic

A lot of people don't realize some people get into commercial illustration because the hustle itself is fulfilling, even if their style is regressive. It's terrible if we come out and admit that to our peers; we're seen as shills (for… ourselves?), selling our souls, etc. It's kinda crab-in-bucket thinking in its own way.

Plus, for all we know, she could be working under a different name for her more serious stuff now. I'd imagine these pinups take her less than an hour or two to pump out now. I cringe at the people who eat this wonky crap right up, but I don't blame her for taking their money at all.

>>546205
Customwaifus was probably my most "favorite" just because it's so unabashedly honest about what it is. I don't think she copies Sakimi's poses, but she's definetly studied her tutorials and aims for the most profitable anatomy. Pic related.
Her Patreon is under review as of this posting, so I can't see her new follower count. If I'm not mistaken, in 2018, she was making enough to start going full time.

I prefer working in a flatter style, but it almost makes me want to learn how to render this way just to fleece the sheep that eat it all up.

Yeah this. If she makes a million dollars a year drawing porn then whatever, I wish I got that kind of money for smut doodles. Not all art necessarily needs to be striving for the high art status, some of it can be mindless entertainment.

She doesn’t though. Sakimichan only makes about 10 pieces per month, which yeah is good activity, but she used to do 20 back in around 2015. I remember in January of 2016 she had to take the whole month off because of stress/health issues and probably lost at least 60k for not posting that month.

Im confused why some of you criticize her for maximizing the money as much as she can? Why wouldn’t she want to be as rich as possible and maintain her place at the top? IMO her earnings are closer to 2 million. The patreon is probably making at least 1.5mil just from simple calculations, and she’s also got her gumroad which has thousands of packages all valued between $10-$60, she also has her storenvy selling posters, her art books selling copies, and she goes to all the major conventions every year where she’s known for buying 2 booth spaces and sells posters at $20 each. Just do the math and the number is astronomical.

I think she knows that she’s degraded in most ways. The photograph backgrounds are lazy as hell and don’t look good, but it sells anyway so what does she care?

Though for the record sakimi didn’t just turn into a perv-pleaser overnight. She was drawing yaoi sex scenes in gaiaonline back in 2005 when she was a teenager. If I find it I’ll post it. This is one I found but it’s definitely more tame than others I’ve seen.

Tbh I think it’s unique, especially since all the top comics are all generic looking manga/manwha clones that don’t look different from each other. It’s a very stylistic and deliberate style that imo is very akin to 60’s style sketchy art and uses color in interesting ways, like Saul bass for shapes and colors and like 101 Dalmatians style for the sketchiness but throw in modern cartoon influence as well. I appreciate the art of it but I don’t read it cuz I’m so fuckin tired of every “modern”-ish retelling of Greek myths being the Hades and Persephone story, it’s so overdone and boring

For example, people LOVE them some "Tall Mean Bad Boi But He Wuvs Small Girl So Hes Only Nice To Her" and some "Catty Society of Rich Sexy Demigods Whomst Love To Fuck". And as an earlier poster said, the stylization gets wonky on anatomy often, but the artist clearly hasa grasp of color theory, graphic design, and shiny effects.

It's not my favorite look either, but not every comic can be a super shiny clean manhwa I guess

I think that's what's actually going on, which would explain how she's churning out a new render a day. Even if she worked fast or on many all at once, it would definetly burn you out.

Her apprentices might render over her sketches while she puts more time in the voiceover tutorials, assuming those are still a thing.

I read Lore Olympus, visually I think the artist has a really good understanding of color and composition that makes up for some of the other problems. Otherwise I think it's a prime example of how appealing writing will rescue unappealing art - people read it because they like the story and the art is just good enough not to put them off. It's got some fun details hidden in it too that make it popular with people who know a bit about the mythology, so it's attracting several different types of fans which will be boosting the numbers.

Also, it updates on time and is an easy read. It's like a Saturday morning cartoon, entertaining brain popcorn that shows up at the same time every week.

yeah this is everyone that sells fan art, you don’t tag the real thing cuz then the bots made by the companies don’t send an auto C&D and also stuff might fall under the “parody” clause as well. Big companies like Disney can totally go after every person that draws A Disney if they inclined but A: it’s stupid busywork so that’s why they make bots do it and B: they’re more inclined to go after mass production bootlegs than like, some random chick selling a print at a con. If you’ve bought any fan art from a con or a print on demand service like red bubble or society 6, all of those sales skirt the grey, she doesn’t have special permission.

It doesn’t have to be realistic to have merit, that’s fuckin baby art school ways of thinking

>>546566
Bauhaus is too abstract to describe LO’s stylistic influence and the real only similarity it has to bauhaus style is that wow they both use large blocks of colors. LO is more similar to commercial style art of sixties, more UPA/Disney style and color blocking similar to coby whitmore and mead schaffer mixed with modern cartoon Steven Universe-ish influence, vs bauhaus which is just design patterns and shape.

That makes a lot of sense, like the different art style and writing make it stand out a lot to where people don’t mind it. That happened with The Arcana game tbh, like it looked different from all the animu VNs on mobile and the writing was pretty good but also it brainwashed the fandom to ignore the monetary tactics it had to keep you buying story (and paying for replays).

It depends on the IP holder and their own attitude with derivative works. Nintendo is notoriously protective of their IPs in general, they care about their image but people still do things like kickstarters for shit that’s obviously fan art of animal crossing or Pokémon but smart people don’t tag it or they call it a “puppy backpack” not an “Isabelle from animal crossing backpack” so that it’s harder for bots and their legal team to find. But the creator takes that risk anyway cuz people eat that shit up. I’ve seen times when companies demand the creator destroy any existing work once a C&D comes and unless the creator wants to fight them in court, which they probably won’t cuz it’s fuckin expensive, then they have to destroy it (or not be caught selling it or they risk a lawsuit).

Shit like sakimi making a pinup of an “ice queen” that looks like Elsa, Disney can totally take it down if they wanted to but they probably won’t cuz they aren’t as protective of that side of things or are actively searching for it. Like nobody’s parent is gonna buy a print of porn Elsa and give it to their kid because it’s her and she’s not selling it under the Disney name or using any other Disney trademarks (trademarks = official logos or branding). But like, if she was selling it like as a mass market book, claiming it’s from Frozen and advertising it openly then of course Disney will shut it down, it will affect their image if they’re associated with it. Disney totally has the power to tell her to take it off her website and patreon and destroy it with proof but they don’t care as much. Disney has all the money in the world but furloughed 100k employees for the corona pandemic so I don’t think they’re gonna spend the money to pursue some shit like this.

This also applies to everyone selling fan art, sakimi doesn’t get exceptions cuz she has money, she can’t pay off the copyright police but she totally could if they existed. That’s why smaller companies/franchises like Undertale specified what they deemed as acceptable fanart (they said nothing mass produced although that didn’t stop people anyway) or they partner with a site like Redbubble where they grant short term licenses for approved work (RB has a list of IP they have contracts with, you submit to them and it can sell as “official” work but you can’t sell it anywhere else cuz of the contract).

Ya know, I always found it weird that Sakimichan has made fanart of Steven Universe before but has never dared profit from it. She only put the videos of the process on youtube for free.

She definitely makes enough bank to consult one or have one on retainer, I wouldn’t put it past her. But it’s not like they give her free passes cuz she makes money like some anons think. This is just the nature of selling fanart and thinking like, what would most companies do

No. 546619

>>546580
Other anons already responded about her avoiding the copyrights by not using the character name and altering the designs just enough to make it into an original creation. A lot of people use this trick such as party princesses (the actors who perform at kids' birthday parties) and cosplayers who sell prints. Most companies don't care and especially Japanese ones turn a blind eye to fanworks (see: the Doujinshi industry) because it's basically free advertisement for them but you really gotta know which ones will come after you. Disney is big enough to have altered the copyright law in order to prevent Mickey Mouse from ever falling into public domain and Nintendo, like already mentioned, is exceptionally protective of their brand.

But seriously it's not hard to use the loopholes in the copyright law. Tinfoiling over how she gets away with it because she has money is dumb as shit because in the end even though Sakimichan theoretically makes over a million dollars a year it's still small money in the grand scale of things. It wouldn't be worth it to pursue her or any other fan artist for it as she's not a Chinese labor factory churning out thousands of bootleg Mickey Mouse mugs.

I'm so torn about Alberto Mielgo. His animation ist formally stunning and I've never seen anything like it but I'm kind of marveling at how you can build your career out of being really into hot women and hardly drawing anything else. Is it because he's so completely unapologetic about it? His painting are basically all naked women - he even paints from actual porn idek -, his (three) Emmy-Winning short for Love Death Robots was basically "my issues with romance" (the dude in the film looks like a self-insert) and the story is a flimsy pretext to have a hot young asian camgirl run around naked. I always get the impression he must be really messy irl.

Speaking of shady tactics (although it's free to read so not really shady in this case), one thing the Lore Olympus author is REALLY good at is weekly cliffhangers. She always answers a question from a previous episode, then introduces a new one right at the end of the update. It's pretty cleverly done because you're always left wanting more information, but you also have some trust that it will be addressed in a later update, so you don't just ragequit.

Actually if the salty anons don't mind some art school sperg, Lore Olympus is a case study in the difference between what makes a good illustration and what makes a good COMIC. If you're learning how to do comics specifically, your goal is to keep people reading, not to have perfect art. Your readers will only look at any one panel for about 2-3 seconds, it's more important for it to look good at a glance than to be a polished illustration in its own right. Each panel should make you want to look at the next panel, and each page should make you want to turn to the next page. They literally teach you to put a 'mini cliffhanger' on every page turn. Lore Olympus is really good at all of those elements; it doesn't matter that each update only has one panel that holds up as an illustration, because it's good at conveying the narrative. As long as the narrative itself appeals to you, that's all you need.

Also like >>546597 said the style is very distinctive, that's also extremely useful in webcomics because the market is so saturated.

Basically Lore Olympus is putting effort in exactly the right places for the type of product it is, so the ways in which it's low-effort don't matter.

Dude this is like a ton of men in the art world who have any personal work that involves women, like it’s just super common in general that women are always objectified. Not that this makes it any less gross, I see what you’re saying cuz I am also a woman so like this kind of like “I know what you’re fapping to exactly” kind of art is just gross and super uncomfortable, men just get away with it more cuz sperging kids on the internet will turn on marginalized creators more so than actual problematic men. But yeah he doesn’t just do women, he’s a movie artist most famously known for work on Into the SpiderVerse so he’s had a career before that.

Idk where I’m going with this but like yeah, there’ll be pages upon pages of like shit cuz sakimichan doesn’t draw boobs and people will throw arms over discourse cuz heaven forbid a fictional 19 year old and 25 year old gets shipped by the fandom so that’s pedophilia but there’s less of an uproar when there’s skeezy art about women done by (white) men

TY anon, this actually kind of makes me want to start reading LO just to analyze it this way? Like the art gets rough and anyone who worked a comic under deadline knows there’s lots of shortcuts, but knowing it works well with the writing like what >>546590 said as well sounds interesting. It also doesn’t seem like it’s a comic well suited enough for print too? Like a lot of older webcomics are formatted to eventually be printed so like updates don’t cliffhanger as well.

Her thread is dry as hell cuz there’s no new milk but all the LO talk is reminding me of Becca Hilburn/nattosoup “I’m the sensei of watercolor comics” cuz she’s sort of the opposite with bad storytelling, terrible technique and no knowledge of color and watercolor.

this is actually making it sound very interesting lol. i've been thinking about a webcomic idea for some time now and the biggest thing i've been wondering besides story is how much effort i should put into each panel/page. with a simplistic style like lo it seems easy to hit that sweet spot of polished but doesn't take too much time, while with a more detailed style it's a bit hard to figure out what you can skip out on.

I'm pretty sure that Becca's biggest problem and the reason why everything she does looks so bad is her laziness and her lack of patience. She tosses the first idea she has on paper, sloppily barfs some color on top of it, goes "eh, good enough" and starts the next piece with absolutely no knowledge gained from the previous one.

Of all the artists mentioned in the salt threads I think her content is the most unappealing. Kara looks repulsive. Rare birth defect repulsive.

Oof. Saged for more art school sperg, but that page would be a masterclass on how to guide the eye around if only she knew what she was doing and was sending it to the right places. As it stands, we start at the extremely green shirt, then the girl's arm forms a line with the cat's ear so we jump to green eyes, then the paw is breaking the panel border so we skip a whole panel and follow it down the line of the girl's body, hit the bottom panel (the only one where we can actually take in the entire panel at a glance) and realise we've missed the biggest one on the page, come back to the green shirt again, and now… where do we go?

Note that the blue boxes indicating what we've missed include the PROTAGONIST OF THE COMIC in 4 out of 6 panels.

This page is also characteristic of a comic artist who references manga without knowing what they're doing. Note how the biggest character is looking to the left - against the flow of text (but with the flow of text if this were in Japanese). We're fighting the human girl's line of sight for the whole page, zigzagging between the end of the text (if we had speech bubbles) and her looking at Kara. The tiny gaps between panels work fine in a black and white shoujo manga where the art is very light and soft, but with a western-style full colour background make it hard to spot where the panel breaks actually are.

I was going to desaturate this and gripe about how there wasn't enough contrast, but it actually read better that way because the girl's shirt, the grass and the cat's eyes weren't competing with each other for BRIGHTEST GREEN.

And this is not even getting into the points of action she's chosen to illustrate. The cat seems to teleport from the girl's lap to the grass and back, and Kara teleports from way off in the grass to up on the steps in one panel too.

Things like forming lines within panels and breaking borders can be done deliberately to lead the eye, the problem here is Becca doesn't MEAN to do it, so it's taking us all over the place and making it hard to read.

You've probably seen some other artists do similar, but she has a nice and simple combination:
-She has the standard "vote for who you want to see" poll. I think she also did one for pairing two random characters together for her yuri one.
-She prices patron tiers by her artwork "levels." The higher the level, the more hardcore the picture is. Pic related is an example of how levels look.
(The "owned by" is whomever got one of her commission slots, I think.)

What makes it work is that she's extremely consistent with maintaining the levels. She keeps her guarantees pretty consistent.

She used to run a patreon for male characters called Customhusbandos, too, but it didn't make nearly as much.

>>546605
NTA but I don't blame you for feeling this way. It makes me wish I could write since written erotica is the popular medium to pander towards women. That being said, it could be due to the fact women are just so horribly undeserved when it comes to things like drawn smut, so it just seems like they aren't interested. People think women don't indulge in visual things, but there isn't much for us to indulge in. Time to be the change.

Technically it's not wrong, the weird blush she did on the left is a normal hue variation in some spots on light human skin, and sub-surface scattering does make skin look more red. It just makes no sense in a cartoon style with no other hue shifts or realistic lighting techniques.

I know this is such a nitpick after everything everyone else has said but my god her hand looks like it’s been fucking amputated.

Overall while these are definitely smaller issues in her comic compared to the awful pacing and tge characters looking like they’re having vietnam flashbacks when they’re meant to be chilling, every problem in her comic as a whole, also exists in single panels. Like she cannot frame for shirt; every pole is cutting the hand off and from the wrist too, she’s cannot choose which are meant to be important panels so every panel has just as much detail as the next, which makes it a cobfusing read, she cannot set her characters into the frames to give them equal focus and her perspective and angle work is so abysmal that Kara is barely visible in most panels.

Even worse is that this kind of comic would hugely benefit from low and high angles, to actually hammer in how small kara is and how to big world is, and allow us to actually zoom into kara while keeping to other chick visible too but in her comic every panel is from slighly raised angle or straight forward which just makes kara sink into the panels. Like I didn’t even notice kara at first in half of these panels.

A lot of kids posting here and buying into the "noble starving artist" ideal which fucking sucks in reality and is the main reason why I got myself an actual profession and kept art a hobby. When it comes to art you really can't make money staying true to your ideals unless you have some crazy luck, being a sellout is the only way to earn a competent salary. I mean Matt Groening did actual, thoughtful art with his Life in Hell comics but decided to pitch Simpsons only to make money because he didn't want to sacrifice his very personal work that Life in Hell was. The (especially higher) art industry is 99% social connections and scratching each others' backs anyway so in any case you'd end up selling out in a different way. If you want to do your own thing you have to pander to the masses with easy access consumer art like Sakimichan or any "omg this is totally me #relatable" instagram comic artist is doing.

Sakimi makes enough money to hire and draw from live models like an actual professional, yet she chooses to shit out stuff like this. You can use live models or photo references for non-realistic art– they give you a nice base to work off of so the posing feels more natural.

Both pictures have a problem with the legs not looking properly attached to the bodies, particularly the bent legs.

>>546910
NTA but I disagree. The two fanart paintings have way more in common with each other than they do with the original you posted. Both drawings 1) removed the girl's shoes 2) turned a petite, flat girl into a seven foot tall Kim Kardashian 3) are in landscape 4) have her left foot bent 5) give her a weird white loincloth thing 6) make the metal trim on her clothes bigger, pointier, and more ornate and 7) give her some kind of crown thing.

He clearly copied her, but who really cares. You could fill a stadium with Sakimi skinwalkers. Hell, her copycats all seem to even use the same style of watermark she does.

Hopefully this won't derail too much, but this has been bugging me. I get art is more liberal by nature but is there a reason why some artists have gone full revolutionary Marxist, or should I just hop off Twitter?

The Twitter artist circles are mostly marxist because xe/xir thinks that after the communist revolution they're allowed to stay home without wage slaving drawing all the mastectomy scar vitiligo disabled ambiguous brown people they want while being provided with all their basic needs (such as art books, steam gift cards and a cintiq tablet). I'm being hyperbolic but that's the short and simple. They're lazy, entitled adult children who think they deserve luxuries and a comfortable upper middle class life style simply for the virtue of being "poor minority artists" instead of going to work like a normal person.

>I love the idea of asking a question at the end and chaining it to the next part.

You don't have to be super obvious about it either, you just make sure you left something unresolved. To use a boring example, in the last-but-one episode of Lore Olympus we found out Persephone doesn't have a bank account and the update ended with her trying to open one. This week we saw the rest of that scenario, but instead of finishing there it started a new scene with Thanatos being shady and left THAT unresolved. In a print comic it can be as small as needing to turn the page to see someone's reply in a conversation. If you look at existing successful comics and try to spot the unresolved thread on each page turn it's pretty easy to pick up how to do it.

And/or just buy a copy of Scott McCloud's 'Making Comics'. It covers pretty much everything you need to know about the fundamentals of sequential art.

You should definitely hop off twitter, but it's also just a trend. There's fashions in politics just like in everything else, most of them will drop it for the next popular opinion in a couple of years when they get bored of it.

Depends on who you follow. If you follow a lot of American artists, especially now with the current pandemic crisis handling, a lot of Americans on twitter are starting to turn more to socialism because the US lacks any safety nets or means in case systems fail the individual. Creatives tend to lean more to socialism because the creative system can be greatly exploitative of artists- contract work is super common but it does not come with benefits like healthcare, companies take advantage of skilled workers and underpay/no benefits (example being the recent leak from Naughty Dog is attributed to them not paying a worker), and creative fields tend to be undervalued for the amount of work required. There are no safety nets for Americans in that regards, so if you follow American creatives then many are losing livelihoods cuz of cancelled events or companies folding. I appreciate seeing some of it, being American and a socialist, but tbh I’ve unfollowed artists who get too weird or too retweety about this shit and just follow them on Instagram cuz that’s more image based. Twitter is more like opinion and word based so to lots of people they’re like sounding boards or journals.

you gotta admit that there are some men/womenchildren on twitter who don't actually understand communist/socialist rhetoric and ideologies and just want free stuff. of course this want comes out of being annoyed with the capitalist system with wages being low while costs having gotten higher so they can't actually get the stuff they want, but they really don't think this shit through. coming form an ex communist country i want nothing similar to communism on a large scale anywhere near me, the capitalist system sucks (especially in the usa), but i think it's fixable if actual taxing and laws are are enforced on the rich. now obviously there needs to be an incentive for that from the government, which if i went into discussing i'd totally derail the thread so i won't go into that lol.

nta but they are obviously talking about the hiring people to pose part, there are so many free resources out there or they could spend less money by buying pose packs. most good artists also can do most simple poses from head so that's really unnecessary and just complicates things because a person can't stay in an uncomfortable pose for hours, while you can look at a photograph for hours.

You can do both and ask people to pose while you photograph them, though, or even just look at yourself in the mirror. Using yourself as a model is great because you can feel if the pose you have in mind is actually comfortable and natural.

The whole 'starving artist' ideal was conjured up by a bunch of late victorian (early edwardian?) trust fund babies who could afford to do this kind of thing.

It's funny when you hear someone who's supposedly passionate about the arts harping on the old masters but totally ignoring the fact that they had full-on workshops that mass produced commissions with artists working on different stage.


>>546903
I just bought her up because she was the first one who came to mind when people asked about Sakimi-clones.

The fact that she jumped in and winged it is what makes her more interesting to me. I think that the artists who do this same kind of rendering and actually have some fundamentals down might feel more intimidating to some of these coomers. I get a slight vibe that there's a "supporting my virtual girlfriend who draws me sexy waifus" thing going on since she had quite a bit of followers even when her style was much worse.

I'm not shocked that she was cocky; she honestly has a Not Like The Other Girls vibe, at times. But for her to do what she's doing, she would have to. It's like she's where Racist Uncle wishes she were at. Forgive the indulgence, but I have a weird fascination with artistic hacks.

Like somebody else said, they rarely credit the artists and the reposts often get more popular than the original posts. Also, let's be honest, every artist is on Twitter now, what's the point of reposting on the same platform?

Most artists who do art with very photo realistic bases hire live models, this is from Adam Hughes’ deviantart where he shows how he used it for his cat woman covers, but it’s not uncommon as you think. It’s mostly cuz lots of beginners and internet artists will do anything but interact with live people or something that is not cost effective. But if you just google live drawing and your area, there’s chances there’s local places who do classes or sessions out of their studios, and I’ve had friends who work for game and art companies who do model workshops for their artists weekly. It’s not an archaic thing, it’s tbh the most important thing to learn if you want to nail any drawing that looks like a human

It depends on how much you use it. Noise filters and the like used to be just for added texture to a piece to make it look less boring.

But now it's used as a backbone for a lot of amateur artist works since it creates that interest to hide the actual flaws.

So as like a sprinkle on top, I'd say it's not bad but if you're using it on a piece that is so obviously bad without it–it's frowned upon.

That's just my opinion however.

I'm not knocking live drawing for practice and study, calling up your girlfriend to bend over for and model her ass for a coom pose, or even studying anatomy in general. But concept artists and kids' books illustrators are not going to be calling live models in just for one or two pretty pictures, and I don't even see a big market for those detailed Norman Rockwell-esque illustrations in complex settings where having models would be warranted. You get people like in >>547260 which is pretty neat and admirable, but I can't imagine this is widespread practice anyway just because there's less demand for that sort of work to begin with. There's a reason there's more film/game studios than painters' workshops these days.

With regards to sakimi, lol even a shitty 3D model could help, sure. But this is less about her needing to use live models for specific art pieces and more about needing to practice figure drawing from live in general. But all sakimi and her clones need to do is shit out the same mechanical coomer work monthly so does it matter at this point? Not really.

No. 547761

I don't get why people even expect Sakimichan to create high art other than to just drag her down with some warped "she doesn't deserve the money because her anatomy is shit" crab bucket mentality. She's creating popcorn entertainment for people and making a bank so accurate anatomy isn't as important as high grade rendering. Why do these people keep on going about how she has some sort of a moral responsibility to hire models or draw from life? It's clearly not what she's going after so even debating it is a moot point. She makes money without David-like proportions and realism and if she's contempt with just creating sparkly rendering then I guess that's it. It would be much more interesting to actually debate if she had Holly Brown/Racist Uncle tier delusions of grandiosity but as she's practically just printing money with shiny things I find it really hard to care.

I have to agree with this, the only milk from her is her shitty anatomy and sometimes questionable subjects, other than that, there's nothing. She has zero engagement with fans, the only posts on social media are her new drawings, afaik she doesn't retweet from other artists or posts her opinions about movies or games, and she doesn't even respond when she gets called out. At least she knows how to avoid drama.

I keep seeing this point on /ic/. Somehow the teenage beginners think you should be paid in accordance to how many anatomy books you've read and how much you've grinded your fundies, as if non-artists (which most consumers are) give a shit about anything other than the result.

No. 547807

completely agreed, i just personally like to point out the flaws in her art so i can get better at critically eyeing pieces. i do think she could give more effort for herself and her fans, since in her old pieces it was apparent she had fundamentals down, but if both of these groups are contempt than she can do whatever she wants. that whole point about her needing to hire a live model is one of the most retarded things i've ever heard on this website and i hope the same fagging 12 year olds fuck off back to weeniehutjr.com.

Someone posted this on the Moo thread and just… yikes. What the hell is going on with her tits? It almost looks like she drew one boob and copy pasted it. Plus it looks like her boobs are trying to detach themselves from her chest and fly away. Her hair looks like Play-Doh, and the tail looks half-assed and unfinished. Her leg is just broken. The stock background looks like shit, it's way too busy and it clashes horribly with the hearts and glow around her head. Why didn't she just draw Isabelle's office instead of copy pasting in what looks like Queen Elizabeth's drawing room? This drawing is definitely in the top ten worst of hers in my opinion.

As an aside, I don't mind that Sakimi makes money with bad art, I just like making fun of bad art. If people will pay for it, good for her.

Creepshow Art not having a thread is honestly bizzare. Her personal stories are inconsistent and unbelievable, she inserts herself into everyone's drama and then acts like the victim (wtf was that Jeffree Starr reaction livestream). Her personality is the typical edgy "I'm not like most girls", and her humor consists of calling herself ugly, poor and dumb every single video. She also likes to brag about being bi for some reason.

I'm gonna sperg for a moment but I honestly prefer her not having her own thread. Don't get me wrong, I despise her unfunny pickme ass, her inconsistent stories, her obvious clickbait and bullshit uploads for attention, and her obvious lurking on here which she consistently brings up to show how 'self aware' she thinks she is, but giving her her own thread is exactly what she wants.

i don't even think it's about her being boring either. her voice is annoying, her videos are poorly made and mass-produced and she doesn't even use her own shitty art for them anymore, so many of her stories are obvious exaggerated, pure bullshit, or her putting herself in an angle to where her edgy preteen fans who believe anything she says will continue to push the narrative that she's a victim (even though most of her drama she starts or inserts herself into). I'm sure if someone cared enough to look into her stories or claims, she'd have plenty of milk.

but she barely makes art, creepshow art as a name at this point means nothing because all of her videos are clickbait surface level drama channel bullshit with art that isn't even hers playing behind it. she obviously lurks here for ammo to use, so giving her the relevance of having her own thread or mentioning her is just feeding her ego. i'd rather she just stay in the corner looking like the irrelevant clout chaser she is

I don't get this attitude either. Comparisons are meaningless and dramawhores that want to toss around "copy" accusations when you know they're false are not even worth the time or effort because other people will already see that they're full of shit. It's so petty to get upset over empty comments typically made by minors.

The only time you would need to address the issue is if some other artist starts threatening you with court documents. "Lawsuit threats" aren't enough, they need to show me that they actually got in contact with a lawyer over this absolute crap and their lawyer didn't laugh in their face and tell them to go home.

I agree with you both. Why would she or anyone else in this market feel obligated to hire a model just to draw something based on a FOTM character that might be forgotten about in a year or less? They know their audience is too lowbrow for any of that. If she were working on some high budget original IP? Sure.

It makes me think of the Twitter artists trying to rake in new views with day-0 fanart of a newly announced character. Anatomical and technical issues won't be relevant; people are just looking for art of the new waifu/husbando. Churning it out within a few hours tops all. And even if the glaring errors are pointed out past acceptable rendering, the saying "there is no such thing as bad publicity" comes to mind.

Speaking of, I found this on a Facebook art group. Any mention of Sakimichan will get you mobbed by everyone else in the comments for being mean.

Out of all the artists to copy, why Sakimichan? Say what you will about her, but at least she doesn't shade with black.

I might be wrong, but I believe she self-posted in here a while back, only to cry on Twitter about lolcow bringing up her dead brother and abusive sister or something. She's much more popular and somewhat credible nowadays, so I'm betting she'd suffer a massive mental breakdown if someone posted all her milk. I mean look at her reaction to the Jeffree Starr interview or when Blaire White blocked her on Twitter.

I honestly think she's bound to get a thread on kiwifarms in the future. Even her fans are picking up on the fact her life stories range from exaggerated to straight up fan-fiction. Also her fishing for compliments and basically begging people to call her pretty is weird, I mean the majority of her fanbase are underage girls.

Hey anons, I'm finally almost finished with the list of books for artists. For anyone who wants to draw realistic interior design I recommend the book Interior Design Illustrated by Francis D.K. Ching. It contains a lot of average measurements for many different types of furniture (and why).

With that being said, none of the books I read really covered hair or fur that well. I know it's more of a rendering thing and probably doesn't deserve its own entire book, but if anyone has any guides or anything that contain advice on structuring hair and such I'd really appreciate it.

It's just another sign that this thread (and others) is basically filled with the type of snowflake that'd normally get mocked here. They just come here to vendettapost about people they're just as bad as, if not worse.
Like, this exact form of exaggeration (someone writing "commit sudoku" has now become "you LITERALLY told people to kill themselves!!") is one of their main tactics, especially in their "callout" posts. It's a manipulation tool to make their sperging over petty subjects seem somewhat justified. It only works on literal children and other deficient people, though. It's like weaponized virtue-signaling.
The meme/shitpost tutorial isn't good, and probably a vendettapost in its own right, but it's also not really a big deal worth all the (You)s. 100% chance that there are some salty meyoco copycats ITT.

This is an egregious lie, especially when her real pictures are so obviously edited. There are conditions like raynaud's that can make a person's extremities look darker, but it's more like a purple bruise colour, not charcoal fucking black.

Yeah like >>548438, black tissue means dead tissue and with buerger’s disease, it’s because blood vessels get damaged and lead to tissue death. If she had this as a child, then she really wouldn’t have fingers, not just coloring. I more believe the red panda thing, she’s probably a furry that keeps a “non furry” art account to be taken seriously but also doesn’t want to separate the red-panda part of herself. I know a few people deep in furry who have accounts like this but they can’t stop referring to the fur aspects of themselves.

It's always like this. Anons start claiming that people like Sakimichan and Meyoco are hacks and that replicating what they do is ~so~ easy and low effort, while never being able to do so themselves. The reason why they claim it's "easy" to begin with is because they lack a critical, trained eye that can take a piece or an artist's style apart and identify what makes the picture look like their signature piece. I.e. they're not talented and experienced enough to make a fair judgement.

The thing about only already popular artists winning is actually not true. I was interested in the contest, so I read the current Tapas thread concerning it and the one from 2018. The old one is full of people complaining about popularity being such a big factor, but in the end when the winners were announced a lot of them were "underdogs" that none of the posters in the thread had expected to win.
It also says right there that it's a purely skill-based contest and the level of engagement would be measured reasonably and most likely according to circumstances (like how long the entry stayed up, how popular someone already was and the ratio of subscribers to likes/comments and so on?).
So I'd say you should definitely go for it if you want to! Especially since the webtoon crowd seems to be very easy lol

Hi anons, my art has improved a lot in the last 3 years but I get much slower every time I 'improve'. I immediately notice my mistakes and mistakes in other people's art, but I can't draw well automatically. My art takes awfully long now because it's an endless process of fixing what looks off over and over. I take hours/days for what people I follow can do in 30 minutes.
Because of that I don't have a consistent output, or followers in social media. I'm afraid that it's because I started late in age, my brain isn't learning shortcuts anymore and that's why I can't draw anything good at first try even if I know what 'good' looks like. Still I practice everyday and try to learn new things and tricks. But it's like my eyes have learned but my hand hasn't.
Is there hope I will be faster one day, preserving the quality? Or you can also tell me the harsh truth that I'll only get slower.

No. 548828

>>548818
If all the drawing you do consists of fixing details and mistakes you probably haven't developed the muscle memory to draw properly in the first place. Start sketching hundred of times in a day without erasing anything or in pen and you will improve much faster

No. 548829

>>548818
It looks like you’re not quite learning in an efficient way, Anon. While it is normal for your eyes to develop faster, it is not efficient to constantly correct mistakes. It might look like you’re improving, but you actually hold back without noticing. You don’t learn shortcuts because you’re focusing on perfecting, not on finishing the piece so that you can have better feedback. Practice your fundamentals and do a lot of gesture, don’t fret over perfection. Finished, not perfect.

I'd also recommend you draw in pen, or at least don't erase anything, if you make a mistake just move to a clean piece of paper and try to draw it again.

At the moment when you make a mistake, you correct it so you're not really retaining WHY it looks wrong. Drawing in pen will force you to sit with the mistakes and see them properly, that way over time you learn which mistakes you normally make and start to correct them before they happen. It sounds like you're slowing that process down by fixing every little thing.

it sounds like you're too in your head and haven't worked on the physical part of drawing enough. i treat a lot of my drawing process like a workout with equivalents to stretching and warming up and doing mindless grunt work before doing anything that requires thought or creativity.

https://darrencalvert.tumblr.com/post/141933666794/people-often-say-to-me-you-draw-like-some-kind

I started doing these exercises last year and nothing else has given me so much noticeable improvement. even family members who used to say nice things about my art no matter what are starting to go "oh…you've REALLY improved now!" Anyway, it takes the anxiety out of doing confident lines. It may not be 100% perfect every time, but my muscle memory is good enough now that I can feel confident that my hand won't go wildly off course or extremely jittery when inking my drawings. Do that and some croquis. They might look horrible when you don't rely on any shortcuts but that's fine. No one has to see them!

No. 548893

>>548889
also samefag but i want to stress that when you do this, croquis, or any other warmup exercise, don't correct anything. attempt to get it right the first time, and when you mess up, just start the same thing again. it sounds like you're focusing too much on finished products only so you get performance anxiety and overthink every little line. if you get used to doing sketches and exercises where you can't correct anything, then when you do your polished work you'll make corrections more sparingly.

Tapastic and Webtoon both have its pros and cons, but if you're just looking to post a comic for fun without expecting any attention on it, Tapas is the way to go. If you're looking to grow an audience and get known for your comic, Webtoon is the way to go.

Tapastic gives you a lot more creative control, such as being able to schedule your uploads, and you will be notified if someone comments on your work. Tapas also tends to be a lot more LGBTQ+ friendly in its userbase, and more diverse in terms of art style and story.

Whereas Webtoons is a very reader-centric environment and most of its demographic is the Wattpad demographic as well. There's a rating system which keeps up the quality control. However, I've heard from smaller creators with relatively low social media following that they get bombarded with low ratings, as fans of popular series tend to downvote other series to make their favourites look better by comparison. You will not receive notifications if someone comments and you must check manually. However, it's good for getting attention if your story is the type that appeals to this demographic.

That's basically what I've seen and this is all a matter of opinion, but I hope this helps.

It isn’t a fuckin animated movie where everything needs to stay on model in every frame and it’s a stupid argument cuz if you look at ANY webcomic that has been on for longer than a year, of course the art looks different cuz the artist has gotten used to the schedule and gotten better/found more shortcuts to put shit out consistently and on time. Plus people who regularly read it KNOW it’s the same character cuz the color is consistent and is a trademark of the series.

Holy chimpout, Batman.

A little inconsistency is to be expected in any comic. But the inconsistencies >>549027 showed are really prominent. It doesn't look even remotely like the same character. I think the main issue is that her eye/pupil size changes too much, and each panel seems to give her a different jaw/head shape.

I don't know why so many of the WKs in this thread bring up money. Rob Liefeld made tons of money– that doesn't automatically mean all the criticisms of him are bad faith and rooted in jealousy. The reason why LO and Sakimi come up a lot is because they, like Liefeld, are well-known– the more people see a piece of mediocre art, the more likely other artists are to point out its flaws.

it’s on the level of Steven universe, actually much worse because at least the characters in SU all look distinguished from each other and have the same basic unique shapes and not depending on colour. You know that scene where hades and his bro’s go to the human realm, I wouldn’t tell the difference between them, and they had to use coloured text to show the difference. I’m tired of each male characters suddenly growing a yard long nose and looking like a hades recolour because the artists on staff don’t care to learn how to draw the character for the sake of their “own style uwu” - the females have it worse too, they all look like Persephone without the pink or the “smol girl” when standing next to someone

Just how long does 'the run' have to be? One successful project isn't your end-all-be-all. An artist can have different target audiences and brands over the course of their lives, if they wanted.

That short run could net you more than enough to retire early (if you're REALLY lucky), invest in bettering your skills, being a learning experience, or move on to something bigger and better. Just because the end product shows inconsistency and stagnation doesn't mean what they're doing off-the-clock might. Time is money, and deadlines and audience demands are a thing.

This isn't coming in to cape for these creators; a lot of artists need to realize, if they want to do this for a living, what makes them the most money may be their most simple, sloppiest, silliest, stupidest, and easiest-to-digest shit. This means more funding for your real passions. Though there's still a matter of finding a balance.

If you're doing art for the sake of art and yourself, none of this applies.
If you're not trying to pay the bills with it, reading this post was likely a waste of your time.
And if you know who your audience is, a lot of what I just vomited out might be irrelevant.

But if you're getting mad because the lowest common denominator on social media aren't appreciating the time and skill you took into putting into a composition, and the hours upon hours of study and craftsmanship that made it possible, you should either re-consider why you're making this art, who you're making it for, if not yourself. Are the same people who eat up these "relatable" scribbles the same people that you want as your target audience?


>>549343
Since you have admirably atrocious reading comprehension, I'll clarify: I was talking about the concept of being "starving artist" as an ideal that came around during the Bohemian movement, which sprang about during the tail end of the Victorian period, not selling out. They do NOT mean the same thing. Artists selling out to the wrong crowd and fucking themselves over is a tale as old time. Abandoning the idea of being a starving artist is not "selling out" if your goal is to pursue commercial art and make a living.

Selling yourself out implies sacrificing your principles. No one HAS to post UwU Dumb Shit to succeed unless they want the UwU Dumb Shit audience. If you hear yourself going "so I have to bring myself down to this level to succeed," then ask yourself why you're even putting time into this in the first place? Why is this the end all, be all point for success? Is this how you define it? Why are you even comparing yourself to someone with a ton of followers who eat up the most inane, redundant art? Is that the crowd you really want? And if it is the crowd you want, quit hoping they'll develop tastes and play to it. Otherwise, don't sell out and go make the effort to find your audience that will appreciate your growth.

The reason high end artists get unsolicited critique from kids is because they're professional artists, and thus they should be absolutely flawless in these kids' heads. It's easier to criticize a gourmet meal for not meeting your standards vs a mcdonalds burger. These shitty arts don't get criticized by kids because they see them as being on the same level as them, and since they can't draw like this it looks insanely good to them. It's an art style they could do, so they aspire for it.

It reminds me of a youtube vid i watched which split art youtubers into 2 categories, aspirational and inspirational. A less skilled artist is more relatable to a broader audience who's interested in art and drawing because they see that art style as an achievable goal for themselves

I'm art school sperg anon and I feel like I should clarify that it's still valid criticism to say the character models are inconsistent (they are) and the story is cliche (it is, don't ask me why I like it). My point was to explain why it's so popular despite those problems.

The artist can get away with the characters being so inconsistent because they're so strongly color-coded that you could still understand the story with just colored blobs. That's great for readability, which is key in a comic. BUT it doesn't mean it wouldn't be better to have strong color-coding AND consistent character models.

Like if you have to pick one or the other then you should prioritize readability, but if you can have good readability AND your panels hold up as illustrations that's still better.

I think >>547894 summed it up perfectly. But don't think you're the only one who finds her absolutely annoying. It's pretty obvious that she's a clout-chaser and that she exaggerates her stories. I think the sad thing about her is that the kind of commentary content she makes could be good if she wasn't so bad at it. If she stopped exaggerating her stories, stopped the cringe self-deprecating humor, and at the very least, used her art more (even if it's not that appealing), it wouldn't be as bad.

I know people don't like Twisted Disaster and she has her annoying quirks too but I'd much rather listen to Twisted then Creepshow because at least Twisted uses her own art and doesn't really clout-chase, at least not that I remember.

exactly. at least twisted uses her own artwork when she's talking about dumb shit or doing storytimes. creepshow is trying to factory farm shitty content so quickly that she doesn't even give a shit if her bad art is behind the audio or not, she'd much rather just pick fan submitted art that she knows is better than hers than actually put in time and effort to improve and make her own work.

At least they learn the fundamentals rather than milking content by crappy sketches nd post them on their IG. Please keep in mind the artist on the pic is not a kid anymore, a young adult who needs to improve their art. They don't even understand anatomy, fundamentals, coloring, and rendering. What company who wants to buy crappy sketches like that for the illustrations?

Feel bad to say this, they wasted their whole time on IG rather than actually studying fundamentals. Like the other artists, they used to be a beginner but gradually they improve and improve on art.

I hate it so much too, it really does feel like a grooming tactic. There was a coffee table manga art anthology that I bought as a preteen that had a lot of cutesy moe art in it which I loved, including some illustrations by a Japanese artist called YUG I became obsessed with. Later I tried to find more work by YUG and similar others in the book and realised they specialized in lolicon, I had just been too naive to see it from their included works. It's fucked up that a pretty and cute book from Borders would lead a kid to find that kind of stuff.

Are all semi-popular artists think that art is a personality trait? I'm friends with a company of artists that are considered well-known in my country, and all of them seem to me like fucked in the head weebs. I'm a little weeby too, but not so popular and I don't even consider my fanarts a serious artwork. I noticed that if I try to discuss anything aside from fandoms or art cons, they are not interested. If we discuss real life, everything comes to other artists discussion, and the more popular they are the more they consider them a "nice person", and everyone else have "shitty artstyle". Their merch isn't even that profitable, and they don't do much to gain more money or following. But they definitely think that they are almost like Sakimi-chan, or Loish, or whatever. Is it a popularity thing, or I'm just "lucky" to stumble upon people like this? Judging by what I see on the internet there are a lot of artcows and artists in general who think this way.

Right. I mean sometimes I do think that Twisted exaggerates her stories sometimes like how in her recent video about MLM/Pyramid schemes, she was going on about how some of her friends went homeless to which I have to question that because of how she said she was homeless when she actually wasn't but aside from that, she's just easier to listen to, she has an admittedly good speaking voice that I actually don't mind listening to and she doesn't fucking self-deprecate as bad as Creepshow does.

I wish I could give my 2 cents but I honestly don't know much of any artists in my RL. I'm usually the only one who likes doing art when it came to my old friend group and I can admit that I can be a little nerdy/geeky when it comes to animation and video games but I'm also into music and love talking about that. I'm just really introverted and don't have much of a social life lol

>>550171
I think that >>550201 said it best, it's mostly time and effort but the key to Sakimichan's rendering is intense shading and highlighting to give that extra hint of life to the coloring so just focus on detailing when it comes to shading and highlight. Use real life references to help get a feel.

I have a question for the other anons in here.
I heard that gradients can really add to your art piece, especially if your usual coloring style is rather simple and boring.

But how much is too much gradient? And is it really necessary to use it in your artwork? Or is it just filler to hide mistakes?

No. 550608

>>550604

It depends on your art style. I like adding subtle gradients to add the notion of depth without going through the effort of actually rendering stuff. Also look neat for backgrounds.

Overall gradients work best when they're subtle and used in rather simple/flat art styles but then again they're a tool like any other. Play around and see if you like them.

I think it's kind of hard to explain? It's obvious when a person uses it too much though, even more so when they don't know how. Sometimes they hit good though. One I see used a lot is a gradient that on the top is light yellow, and the bottom is dark purple(play with the exact values). But again, painfully obvious if you're not careful with it. Like the other anon said, just play with them. People often come up with interesting combinations.

No. 550681

I have to agree. As much as I love original art, it's a given that Fan Art will always be more popular as it appeals to the masses and it's just a compromising thing that an artist can do to drive traffic to them and then if they do have original works, hopefully they're interesting enough to their new viewers to give it a look.

>>550604
It really depends on the art style for sure. The only time I ever really do a gradient effect is when I color character's eyes but that's about it as I just prefer a more simpler color style for my own work but I've seen some really nice styles that did utilize the gradient style.

It pisses me off that she complained about them so heavily, and didn't think that MA Y B E they're social anxious (as many YouTubers tend to be) or just can't handle large crowds of people and/or fans.

All of this is so childish and the subtle notes of "was it my face?! It was probably my face" yes. Honestly. If I saw you walking up to me I would quickly shuffle away cuz you look like a whiny asshole.

She had absolutely no empathy for a lot of the creators and just went by how long they interacted with her which is…very narcissistic to say the least.

What a salty bitch.

Also what's with the "Don't say someone's OC reminds you of x" it's natural to compare a thing to another you know and hold no ill intention (unless they're accusing).

I hate this too. As long as they're not saying 'you copied [character]' I think artists should just take it as a compliment and move on. Most of the time it's baby teens who do that and what they're trying to express is 'this looks professional' or 'I like this as much as I like [character]'. They're trying to say something nice, just let it go.

Artists might be happier if they tried to interpret comments charitably instead of taking everything as an insult.

No. 551254

To be honest the "your OC looks just like x" sounds rude even though it's probably not supposed to be, a lot of people take it personally when they're trying to create something original and a random person kind of dismisses their effort. Some more malicious commenters even use it as a passive-aggressive insult to make fun of it, and you can never be sure of the intentions behind the statement. However it's childish to have a huge public spergout about your originality being questioned though but I see no harm in telling people that it's lacking tact to bring it up. I also think there's a difference in tone between saying "This character reminds me of x" and "This character looks just like x", the latter is much more brash and can be read in a more accusatory way.

Sort of related but I once deadass had a person claim that I copied character x with my character design even though I had never even heard of the character I supposedly plagiarized, they didn't even look like each other but had a similar (quite generic) color scheme. Like literally started nagging me about it and insisting on how I totally ripped it off. So personally I'm a bit on the edge with comments like this but I've learned to ignore it.

I've seen it used as a backhanded insult, too. But it's very hard to tell online if it's someone making an innocent but positive comment (which they may like it BECAUSE it reminds them of a character they like–and sometimes they're nice enough to point that out) vs some thought-out sniping that doesn't cross the line into accusation.


Digressing a bit, but is there a way to open the floor to teach people how to give good art feedback if they actually want to give the artist something useful? I see people who can't draw to save their lives, but seem to really get off on giving critique. I figure if they're going to spend their time doing it, they should learn how to actually do it so that their feedback isn't completely overlooked or laughed at. Plenty of people who can't draw or paint can have an eye for certain things and probably don't want to start a fight over good intentions.

Even saying something like "I love your work, but I feel like, after a few pieces, this medium isn't your strong suit," can be more productive than some long-winded rambling about how 'the nose is too long' despite it being part of the character's design.

I'm asking because it's an issue I see often, but I feel that it hasn't been addressed due to the critics not wanting to be critiqued, and artists (understandably) having their own mentors they go to for teaching and advisement, or (irritatingly) prefer an echo chamber. I'm not even sure where I'd start writing about this as a somewhat formal guide.

(Not the previous anon but another art anon) On the insides of the cans, the moon tangents with the edges of the inside and the cloud tops are awfully close tho one or two are really tangenting (the bigger issue with them is the weird sizes and how the form of them don’t follow the circular shape of the can). The tops of the cans as well, the lines tangent to each other. These all make this drawing very flat cuz these are amateur mistakes that only understand copy and not form. Compare to actual meyoco, everything follows the form of the cans and things overlap, which suggests form and roundness

I agree with >>551493 but also look up painting instruction by actual teachers and don’t dismiss cross-mediums cuz there’s a lot garbage out there and u wanna learn the basics at first. James Gurney is a good person to start with cuz he’s a master of color and light, he primarily works in gouache and opaque watercolors on his channel but a lot of things can be applied to oil and acrylic. Proko is also a good resource- he primarily has lots of drawing tutorials on his site but he has and links painting resources. Skillshare sponsors every YouTube cow under the sun but they also look like they have beginner friendly resources on there for both oil and acrylic painting. Look up a lot of traditional painting at first since that will teach u how to think like a painter, which is way different if u do like primarily line art and color on top/underneath digitally, and restricted palettes/color theory

here's an example of what i mean. the extremely simple creaseless clothes are the biggest giveaway. if they used a reference for the poses, why not use a reference for some clothes too? this to me says that they only know how to trace or doodle from their imagination, so they traced the bodies and made up some clothes and hair with no reference.

No. 551631

Yeah weight and gravity tend to be helped by knowledge of anatomy and how the human body carries weight. 3D models are essentially dolls and even if they have muscles modeled onto them, they can still be unnatural because muscles stretch and flex while basic models don’t. Also people have fat deposits that also move with the body and 3D models don’t, which is really evident in breasts, like people will draw them as if they have no weight or don’t change shape when the arms move, or by putting fat deposits on weird places when they try to make a character look fat but don’t reference real fat people

No. 551641

Another indicator is not touching objects or looking like they float. Plus a lot of the time anatomy is actually bad but the proportions are right (anime right that is) because they are just tracing a base with no idea how the body works.

Question for art anons:
Do you have any tips, advice, or tricks when it comes to backgrounds? Should I just suck it up and practice complex backgrounds?

I'm primarily a character artist and find trying to draw backgrounds that suit the drawing difficult so I default to just a plain gradient background and framing with lowered opacity white–but I'm noticing that it's growing repetitive and the results become lackluster even when the drawing of the character is one of my best.

Any advice would be great!

No. 551655

>>551652
learning to draw things good is a combination of honing your skills and making conscious decisions about how you render. you don't necessarily need an art-station level rendering of an environment for a character background, but if you want to ground your characters–or do art in general, really–you will need to learn how to draw spaces.
i suggest looking at movies, drawing from life, learning about composition (i know loomis is a meme but his books will help) and color coordination–and generally just setting aside time to train SPECIFICALLY on backgrounds, since they're what you're weak at.
with enough time your hand and eye will improve, and you'll be able to draw better backgrounds faster because you have the foundations.
those are more important than any shortcut.

i think the cringe part is making it a PSA with do's and dont's of how to treat an artist like an artist is a wild animal in a zoo who needs to be treated carefully lest the zoo customers get bitten. DO smile at the artist and say you love their work. DON'T knock on glass or put your hand in the enclosure. just saying "i don't like it when people say my character looks like x. it feels like they're accusing me of plagiarizing" is a normal complaint. people should just take responsibility for their own feelings instead of spinning them as universal and making little rules about them.

No. 551667

Definitely agree with anons above on taking classes to get a handle on technique and painting fundamentals. Some quick start advice: preparing to paint with oils and acrylics require different materials/surfaces. I recommend acrylic since it dries faster and can be diluted with just water. When buying paint, the most useful when first learning is black, white, and a warm/cool color. Also: start with a small pea-sized amount of paint, the spread of it can be more than you expect if you've never painted before, and it's wasted paint if it dries before you can use it all up. Please avoid buying cheap art acrylic sets, those are really only for arts and crafts projects. Go for something like Liquitex to really get a handle on the material and avoid frustration (expensive, that's why start with 4 basic colors and don't waste it!)

Yeah be forewarned that there's a big difference between oil and acrylic when it comes to set up and clean up time. Acrylics are water-soluble and you just need to be careful they don't dry on your brush. Oil paints need to be thinned with either refined plant oil or solvents, both of which are hard to dispose of. If you use solvents, you have to have a well-ventilated studio or you'll gas yourself with the fumes, and the leftovers have to be disposed of as hazardous waste. Plant oil is less toxic but you still can't just tip it down the sink like you can with paint water. There are specific techniques that are only possible with oil so sometimes it's worth the trouble, but acrylics are definitely more beginner-friendly.

I'd be inclined to say 5 basic colors rather than 4, you can get a true cyan/magenta/process yellow in acrylic so if you get those, black and white you'll be able to mix literally any color you need with practice. But yeah don't cheap out on the paints, it's a false economy.

Doing that first will help will proportions

Anon I think you are caring more about details than structure,I'm by no means a expert is taught with books but for values and specially with b/w I squint n focus on only the visible values, try to use 5 going from the darkest to the lightest and don't shades too much for now.

Also what personally helped me to find depth in the face is to visualize as if I'm carving it.

Don't overwhelm yourself trying to make it perfect an alike it's more important that you understand how the skull affects the plane and shadows.

So >>552025, I think u got it almost there with explaining the shape fundamentals but I don’t think your circles understand the form of the head enough.
>>552035 is the most right in the structure is most important before going into the details cuz you want to basically set up the foundation for the house that is your painting. Like you have to think about volume and form before going into the details just so everything harmonizes.
Another anon linked a Proko video about drawing heads above you which you should watch. Knowing the fundamentals is important and you should start breaking down the head into shapes and how you can translate 3D shapes into 2D. I’m an art school fag so I did a quick trace of the original photo to show you: the red is how you can think of the features and how they sit on the round skull of the head, unfortunately the photo you chose the ellipses of the head shift from up to down because of the lens of the camera (that’s the circles on the side) and the blue is the skull inside the head but it’s a little bit wonky cuz of how the photo warps the face a little. Its cool tho that you’re starting up painting digitally but before diving into it, look up some fundamental tutorials and like foundational work. Then practice a lot

>>552055
Also adding cuz I mentioned it, just remember cameras and what photographers choose to capture heads matters as focal length affects the accuracy of the head. That’s why you should draw from life when you can, like just draw yourself from a mirror a lot, cuz it’s best to translate what your mind sees as 3D into 2D and not 2D into 2D because things can be inaccurate like this

I really feel like early DeviantArt kind of demonized using references and it held me back a bunch. I understand about not heavily referencing someone else’s work but since I was a dumb kid I thought that bled into any reference at all. Drawing a person just standing there was simple enough without a reference but I thought that good artists all just drew their work 100% from memory. I feel kind of dumb realizing now that people take poses from pictures or real life and make their own thing out of them and that a lot of work I was idolizing probably did the same. Did anyone else feel like this?

I can’t remember specifics off the top of my head but I remember some pre-tumblr call out posts from popular dA artists about how they were taking certain references and pasting them into one customized reference and going off of that. The artist was one of those kinda boring people who only do hyper realistic pencil portraits, but the specific call out was from some big Lord of the Rings piece she did. At the time I thought it was so scandalous but now I realize that planning out a piece like that is just smart.

Well, aside from the 'bait and switch' where she complains about trailers only showing the pre-transformation character design, but then two out of three examples show the transformation prominently in the trailer.

>it's the same principle as drawing from life
>see also: master studies, historical techniques that used early projectors, pinholes etc.
>there's a conflict between people who value the product and people who value the process: people who value the product don't care if the artist traces to save time, people who value the process do care if the artist traced because 'cheating'
>social media and youtube are making the process more visible due to posting WIPs etc.
>we treat artists with a lot more reverence than other public figures and feel sort of betrayed when we find out they take shortcuts
>references Holly Brown and Josh Draws tracing scandals, gives personal examples of how revealing something was traced even if you credit causes people to stop respecting the art
>tattoo artist tells her most of them trace
>art prof says 'it looks so realistic people think it's traced, so why not trace it? You'll save time'
>admits to tracing some of her own work that was copied from photos to save time (she was already copying the photo - just started tracing instead of eyeballing it)
>'if you don't have the skills, tracing is bad, if you do have the skills, people think you traced'
>We accept other timesaving tools like scanners + digital art programs, why is tracing different?
>talks about cancel culture and people being cancelled on flimsy evidence - personal examples of being accused of stealing her own art etc.
>points out as a photorealist artist, you can overlay her not-traced paintings onto the reference and they LOOK traced - this is enough to get yelled at.
>26:00 interesting thing about her work as a social media manager and how online outrage spirals out of control in a matter of minutes based on one person freaking out in the comments, and your options for handling it are really limited.
>admit to tracing ahead of time - people don’t respect your work

>don’t admit to tracing - live in fear of being found out and cancelled

Thank you for your noble sacrifice

No. 552453

>>552392
I'm the anon who asked for a summary but holy shit I did not expect this much effort, thank you!

Well since we got the summary might as well chime in.

Ok so the first point, I partly agree with but there's a lot I disagree with. I do help few people online when it comes to art and a lot of them do portrait studies and then approach me when they cannot figure out what they did wrong. On these cases I usually trace the picture and compare the traced line-art to their copy of work (and sometimes I trace that too), because it's far easier to see the differences in flat line-art than it is in what's meant to be a 3 dimensional picture.

What I don't agree though is that tracing is effective learning tool, because really it is not. Tracing is useful for breaking down a picture into simpler forms and observing it but not for making a master study. When you learn art, you learn from your mistakes more than from what you did right and this actually applies to every other skill, not just art. Tracing does not allow you to make those crucial mistakes that force you to learn and it does not also make you think what you're doing. When we copy we have to constantly compare our work to our reference and think why things this way and not that, we have to measure distances between the objects, compare shapes to other shapes to make sure they're right, match the sizes, etc etc. When you trace you can turn this whole progress off so it ultimately becomes meaningless.

She admits to tracing some of the studies that she was originally eyeballing and honestly, that's just turning to a lazy solution. Art is not easy, everything you can learn from tracing, you can learn thousand fold by copying so she's really just shooting herself on the foot if she thinks it's gonna carry her longrun.

———

Next she talks about people valuing the progress vs end result. On that I agree, people definitely do spread out like that and I can say I'd probably fit more into caring about the progress than the end result. Now I also do not entirely agree that people cannot accept tracing as part of art, look art big artists like yuumei or wlop for example, both use 3d models in their works and trace over those yet people still respect them for their skills. It's because if both wlop and yuumei were told to draw the things they use models for they totally could but a lot of artists frankly can't.

She talks about crediting and how it loses you respect but ultimately why would you care? Obviously if you trace a picture it's objectively far less impressive than if you drew it on your own, or is she bummed that people are not willing to praise you for the work you didn't do?
Weirdest thing she mentions is how if you don't trace you get burned out but that speaks to me about her lack of skill more than anything. Art becomes easier the more you do it and the more you learn, something that seemed complex can become easy second nature after you study it enough and if she feels burned out very easily without tracing it really proofs that she's just projecting here and using tracing because she lacks skills and not for just to save time. There's plenty of ways you can fix your drawing progress without tracing btw if you feel like it's not working for you, most of it does come down to becoming better at art but also being efficient at what you already can do, if you have to rely on tracing to do one or both of these things, then you just lack the skill.

———-

She said it's better to trace for a melanin march than not do it at all but honestly I think on key thing as to why tracing is frowned upon online, is that online it's very easy to steal and it's also very easy for the copyright holder to lose track of their work. If someone traces your work, someone else could trace the traced work, etc etc and eventually your work (or a cheap copy of it) is spread all over the internet, possibly sold around without you getting even a slice of bread out of it. On a last note she mentioned about the professional who said that if it looks traced, why not trace but a guy who can achieve a traced look without tracing has far more options to go for than a guy who can only achieve good by tracing. Any skill is a skill that is south after in some ways and can be utilized but tracing does not require any skill behind it, thus your "talent" becomes worthless.

———-

Anyway this kinda became a long ranty answer but while I do believe that tracing does have it's place and can be a good tool to help you save time when saving time is actually important (for projects especially) a lot of people try to use it just as a replacement for what they cannot do and that's gonna cause issues later on for artists who don't trace and for artists who get traced from.

No. 552459

This whole 'tracing is legit' falls apart at the point that tracing artists are relying on work of others. Instead of creating your own pose or background you always have to look around for something that may match your vision, in the end it doesn't so you either way drop the idea or change it. It's like wanting to bake a fancy cake but all you have are basic cake mixes. Tracing teaches you shit. All you get out if it is an easy achievement.
Note: I said this in regards to illustrators and non-professionals. I'm totally aware that there are shortcuts/ presets in professional animation (like Disney recycles sequences) or Manga (like screentones). But that does not mean lazy ass Karen can go around and trace off of every artwork out there.

You're welcome anon. Believe me I expected to sit back and doodle for half an hour and then write you a 1-sentence summary, but it turned out there really was 55 minutes worth of points in there.

In terms of content it's a mix of good points and overreach, I think. I take her point about tracing saving time if you're a photorealist anyway (she mentioned editorial illustration too where turnaround time can be like… an afternoon), but pic related is her work and I'm not convinced tracing is doing her any favours in terms of skill.

It's possible she really does need to do some tracing to figure out where she's going wrong, some people 'see' more accurately when copying than others, but if that's the case she should be doing that for practice not on finished pieces IMO. I'd say… tracing can be useful in the same way looking up the answers in the back of the textbook is useful when you REALLY don't get it - it's fine under that specific circumstance but it should be your absolute last resort, and if you do it a lot you won't learn anything.

The copyright section is a bit of a mess, but also interesting to me because I work with copyright in my day job. I'm a Britfag and we don't have a 'transformative works' exception, so everything that she mentioned as confusing and borderline over here would just be infringement. I don't know if that changes my perception of what's 'acceptable' as an artist. To my mind this is a big issue, because copyright is there to protect artists from misuse of their work. If I were the photographer I'd be pissed off that someone used my work as a base without asking and under UK law they wouldn't really have an excuse.

i think the third traced one looks better than the others in that row, but those look a bit more experimental. otherwise all the non traced ones looks better.
honestly for this kind of realistic style tracing sounds so backwards, just getting the outline won't make you be able to grasp the form, the lightning and texture, but actually drawing it will do. traced or overpainted realistic art is so obvious because it usually lines up perfectly while being very plasticy or underdeveloped in texture.

That's not the impression I get. I mean, some fat people are unattractive and theoretically there should be no issue with depicting them like that. It's more because art like that is so disingenuous it's a turn off. We all know damn well they're ticking off a checklist of SJW approved traits in order to get brownie points and feel like a good person.

the reason drawing stretch marks and body hair like this is cringy is because it's jarring on something otherwise simple and stylized. like, you can't see her nostrils, lips, or fingernails, so why would you be able to see her individual leg hairs and stretch marks? you can't even see those things on people irl sometimes in certain lightings. so, people assume you put those details there for a particular reason, like a fetish or virtue signalling. if it was a realistic enough style that those tiny details made sense, people probably wouldn't find it as jarring.

I feel like most anons here are teenagers/college students who don’t understand how the professional market works. They have this image that a professional artist must have spotless art, but the industry often prefers people who are reliable/have a good work ethic and connections, rather than the actual absolute best draftsmen. You can get much further by being competent, reliable and good at marketing yourself than by being a virtuoso. Of course both can happen at the same time, and it’s better if you do, but it’s not a prerogative to professional success.
To just go “wow how did she work with X if her art is wonky sometimes” is missing the point, illustration is a service, not gallery work.

Just look at that peter morbacher dude, fantastic art but fucked himself out of the industry by being horrible to work with (hence why he only does patreon stuff).

Yeah that’s been a problem in concept art/production art like of course artists will put their best, most polished work on public sites like artstation if they’re allowed to but there’s so much photo bashing, paint overs and tracing like in the pro world depending on the industry, you don’t have to be fuckin Rembrandt or something. Especially in movies and games, it’s just straight up photomanips sometimes cuz you make art fast, you don’t have time to work on one painting for three weeks

I don’t think tracing is helping this girl either. I’m the camera anon who did the paint over and she has a similar problem here where her traced art is way more stiff and flat than her untraced art. It’s not the camera warping it like above but it’s more that, she knows facial structure enough to push expression on the left side images to make them feel more natural while the right hand images are very posed. Especially in the eyes and that’s more jarring in a human face that’s near realism.

This girl is a portrait artist so her experience is different but tracing is pretty common especially like in concept art and comics because, like she said about editorial, you have to draw so fast. So it’s common to trace shit like landscapes and buildings or models from blender or sketch up. Like if it’s a building that’s only gonna be in one panel and you need one angle, comic artists have to do probably 2-3 pages a day for monthly books so who has time to figure that shit out from scratch.

No. 552741

>>552735
Yeah photomanip really is only a problem when you use someone else’s work, usually photographs, and it’s not transformative enough to distinguish it from the original. Then it goes into sketchy legal territory but it’s also why people always say to gather tons of reference so you don’t derive from just one

No. 552752

This. This should be the first thing you're taught in art school. If you want to be a commercial success there's no point in trying to create technically flawless art. Sakimichan's anatomy is notoriously bad but the average person paying for her patreon sub isn't going to care. All that matters is that your art is eyecatching and accessible to the basic consumer who holds the money, a virtuoso who's not willing to please the masses or is simply unable to create calculated eyecandy isn't going to be earning the big bucks or collaborating with recognizable brands. Yeah it might suck that the business straight out throws your principles out the window but that's just how it is, when you order food at a restaurant as an amateur you're more interested in how the food tastes than the nooks and crannies of gourmet cooking. Most people order the extra large burger with fries rather than wine-braised lamb loin with fennel genoise.

>illustration is a service, not gallery work.

A perfect way to put it. With commercial artwork all that matters is the ability to sell your work and to network with the right people, i.e. being a salesperson. Not by being a righteous artist aiming towards perfection. That's also why salty Twitter artists who aim towards the goal of one-upping each other in superficial technical skills never make it big, they're too busy being unapproachable and peppered with bad PR so that nobody wants to be involved with their brand. Literally all of my artist friends who "made it" did it through connections and people-pleasing art, not by unique, jaw-dropping pieces.

I just mentioned him here and summoned his annoying pedantic presence into my timeline almost immediately. You might know bugmeyer aka peter mohrbacher from his multiple recent dramas:

>the one time he stole @ArtofChira’s artwork to promote his art podcast, got politely called out and was a snarky rude asshole about it throughout the whole endeavor, even when he was clearly in the wrong.

>the one time he tried to do a callout and hashtag against ProCreate for cancelling an illustration comission with him because he did not follow the requests for modifications from the client, and ignore basic rules of client-artist communication, resulting in procreate refusing to use his artwork because it was not what they paid him to do. They still paid him btw.

He himself has said that he went independent because he couldn’t stand anyone in the industry (or rather, no one could stand his arrogant and hard to work with behavior and he was effectively blacklisted). He also is incredibly late on his book’s kickstarter delivery, and keeps being unprofessional about it.

Yesterday he posted this, basically asking for free work from one of his sucker fans, for what you can assume is gonna be turned into merch for his patreon or his kickstarter. He has over 1500 patrons, on top of kickstarter money and some freelance work for whoever is courageous or uninformed enough to still hire him, surely he has enough money to pay for someone to model a coin for him, and yet he delivers this absolute joke of an answer. Yes peter, providing services to other people is transactional, that’s the literal definition of your creative job. you’re not anyone’s mom and no one has to make shit for you out of good faith.

Basically he’s a huge cow whose above average art skills got to his head, who lucked out enough to get a ton of suckers to validate and stroke his inflated ego after getting blacklisted out of the illustration industry. His cowness would be more fun to watch if he got any open flack about it, instead he’s quietly hated by a bunch of people in the industry.

I just checked his kickstarter, which raised 200k dollars in 2016. And it’s still in print proof phase, with some of it’s internal artworks not even done yet. Being in proof stage means it has not even been printed and bookbound yet, after a whooping 4 years. But there’s more…

>>552760
The coins he was begging for someone to model for free on twitter less than 24h ago? Already promised as an “apology” reward on his kickstarter, with intentions to be turned into official merch afterwards. They’re admittedly not even a finished mockup yet, which means that it doesn’t have the 3D map, and by extension no established manufacturer or product proofs. It’s a given to say it’s stupid to promise things that you don’t even know if you’re gonna be able to manufacture when your kickstarter for a BOOK is already four years late, but the fact that he wants some sucker to do it for free when he profited over 200.000 dollars on it is hilarious in it’s brazenness. Him being a whiny chucklefuck when people want to be paid for specialized work that he wants to profit on indefinitely (future merch plans) is just the cherry on top.

I bet he complains when he gets job offers “for exposure”, but then again in peter’s world rules are only right or wrong when it suits him.

Tracing is only a big deal to people who don't work professionally. The reality of the situation is that if you're employed as an artist (and earning a living wage), you are 99% of the time working in the entertainment industry, not fine art. No one gives a shit how you produce, only that at the end of the day your work is done. Copyright issues aside, if you are producing something that needs to look realistic, you're tracing, using filters, color picking, photo bashing, etc. It's just the nature of the beast.

god, sorry to bring back an old topic but there's so much overthinking in this lady's video that it's just stupid.
tracing is a shortcut that takes next to no craftsmanship, creativity, or skill. so if you want to use and develop those areas, you should mostly avoid it and only use it when you really need to save time or meet a deadline. it's like lipsynching. few would care if a talented singer occasionally lipsyched at a concert if she had a sore throat or something. but if she did it a lot, people would start to doubt her singing ability, and if you only ever lip synch, you're not even considered a professional singer anymore. so with art, if someone commissioned a realistic family member portrait due tomorrow and you can't get the lips to stop looking wonky, tracing them is understandable and it doesn't revoke your artist cred. but why are you completely tracing works that are supposed to be your personal self expression? it's just not skillful or creative, simple as that.

as far as tracing as practice, if you're attempting a complicated new style or subject matter, it can be hard to even know where to begin, so tracing a relevant a couple times can help your mind "digest" the image and break it down into lines that you can understand. but if you're tracing a cute girl and you've already drawn 1000 cute girls before, what exactly are you learning? it can even be counterproductive because the process of tracing isn't the same as the what the original artist did to produce the image. it doesn't teach you what kind of pren pressure they used or how quickly they moved their pen,for example. so you could reinforce all the wrong techniques.

I agree, the "copy" is actually better. Notice how in the bottom one, the straws are a different color when they're under the liquid, which is more realistic. Like you guys said, they're also more creative.

The only things I like better about the original is the way the cups are tilted together, and the color reflections on the plastic.

Does anyone have a tutorial on how to color like pic related? Or at least a speedpaint video of a similar artist painting?

I know the theory, but whenever I try doing it, looks like a muddy bootleg. I wish I could understand the process better before exercising it again.

The closest I get to this is Marco Bucci's tutos on coloring, but it's still a bit different. It can be in japanese, btw.

Saw this in an art discord the other day, maybe it'll help.
"The text is talking about the concept of taking colors that are all over the color wheel (great jumps in value change) and how it can be counterproductive in defining the parts of the drawing that you want to stand out. Rather than throw a ton of the same blue down, pick other colors (yellow, green, red etc) with fewer value changes to give off a more cohesive atmosphere. You can pick severe changes, but try to blend them out with the base color so they don't all compete for the viewers attention, but rather work together to create atmosphere."

"The second picture is literally just saying that before they had this knowledge it was hard to discern the main subject of the composition and the colors were muddy. However, with this new knowledge their current drawings now have easily identifiable subjects of composition, and there is a cohesiveness that brings the whole drawing together. In the sense that everything doesn't get washed out or bleed in to each other. The bottom line just says so long as you are aware of this principle even just a little, it can really change the outcome of your artwork a lot so give it a try. You can make changes in three editing phase as well."

Yeah fuck her. She's a massive cunt to other Chinese artists, talks mad shit about everyone while acting cordial face to face and cries plagiarism when the piece that supposedly plagiarized her was posted before hers was. FGO isn't apparently the only thing she fakes interest in, she trash talks a lot of stuff but pretends to like it to pander to her audience. She also had posted how all the "shitty artists" FGO employs are beneficial to her because they highlight how much more talented she is, which is a really dickish thing to say out loud and a one-way ticket to creating a really bad reputation within the industry. Additionally she also locked a foreign artist out of her house for something and left her stranded.

It's a damn shame too, I loved her CE art so much but read about the drama later and was completely disillusioned. It's always disappointing when someone with mad skill turns out to be a douchebag.

I’ve been following her since forever on pixiv, but never really heard of any drama because of language barrier. Is there anywhere I can read on these incidents in English?

Fandom hopping and clout chasing is also just the standard behavior for fanartists, so nothing new in the front there either.

This process is called hue shifting if I’m not mistaken, or at least a more exaggerated version of it. I’ve only seen it mentioned in regards to pixel art but I think it would work the same for drawing.

Just google "rei_17 drama", there are a lot of discussions summarizing her drama especially in the FGO subreddit. Here's one comment and the replies to it that do a good job running it down. https://www.reddit.com/r/grandorder/comments/cprx5w/finally_some_good_food/ewr7v8i/ Summary: Last year some Chinese artists had enough when her art was used for a special summer event on Fate/Grand Order despite her constantly shitting on the game and the artists and decided to start leaking her behavior from Weibo (A Chinese equivalent of Twitter) which turned out to be not very pleasant. Some of the original callout tweets have sadly been privated but other resources exist.

She keeps all the drama off her pixiv and twitter and has a professional face in front of her international followers, but apparently lets it all hang loose on Weibo to write some really nasty shit in Chinese to trash the very same artists whose asses she just finished kissing on other sites. And to be perfectly honest I think paying lip service to fake an interest in a popular franchise while shit talking it, the creators, the artists involved and the fans who like it is dishonest as you're profiting off the fans with your work yet letting them know how much you despise them and only use them for money and clout. I get that you need to pay the bills but there's a difference between being commissioned to do something you don't care for and repeatedly lying to use someone else's creation to milk for your own benefit. And like >>554365 said it's not just that she didn't like a game she was commissioned for, it's because she was a sociopathic cunt about how much she hated it.

One of the artists she bashed loudly was pako, probably the most popular (and objectively talented) artist FGO has. Yet he was a fucking professional about it, didn't comment on the drama coming out about how this crazy bitch shits on his art and even RT'd her CE art out of courtesy. Now that's admirable.

I remember when Cyarin was in relationship with "vio" and Cyarin published new animated channel trailer on her youtube. Vio did most (if not all) animating and I am pretty sure Cyarin just said if it's good or not. (Not sure, just my thoughts).

Cyarin had never published any animations while Vio animated. When some one said in the comments that it might be misleading for the new channel visitors to think that she is animator more than illustrator, cyarin responded: "You do know I animated this too right"

Nah, she took a dump on pako (and Miwa Shirow) too.

I had completely forgotten that she also attacked fellow competitors in a pixiv drawing contest to make herself win.

But true though, it appears that she had a huge hate boner for Wada Arco which is just sawing off the branch you're sitting on since she's such a huge name in the Fate franchise and a well-liked artist. You reap what you sow.

Given the country's size and modern history, the Chinese culture in general is strongly based on the "eat or be eaten" ideal and I think that also applies to the online culture as well. People can become fucking psychos because aggressive elbow tactics are encourage and used against them as well, even Chinese lolitas are notorious for having massive drama in their community. Compared to Japanese artists are generally too nice for their own good until they have a mental breakdown, Thai artists not really giving a shit about da haturz and Koreans being quite similar to the Japanese but a tad more aggressive I believe. They're all products of their culture. Not trying to do any ethnic profiling here because it's just based on my subjective experience from interacting with Asian artists.

No idea, maybe she self-inserted into her or something. She's notorious for forcing her own headcanon on Arjuna and hating the official character, and to be frank the way she portrayed Nitocris in her fanbook is barely recognizable. I think she just projected her own OC into a character that's recognizable and popular to create more sales.
