I don't think she's lying. She probably did get one comment saying she should be raped and killed or whatever. But then she probably exaggerated the problem.
I think what's more telling is going to videos that were featured in the YMS video. The ones that still have comments enabled do not have any kind of rape or kill yourself comments, aside from maybe one in a sea of hundreds. And those videos are the ones most fans will be commenting on. Not some random video with a handful of views from tiny tobi.

That's a really good point actually. She does seem like the type to get one negative comment and blow it WAY out of proportion. Her saying that she deleted the video but still stands by her point and YMS is into bestiality directly parallels how she's reacting the the Shane situation. She makes a video, deletes the post, says she still stands by her point and that Drama Channels/YMS Suck. Seems like she has an issue admitting when she might be wrong.

Even if the art was good, these prices just seem extreme for a soft copy simple lineart, color, and shading.

I don't know, I don't agree in general with artist selling their work according to time spent, because you could have two artist create the same painting, but one needs 3 days and another needs only 1.

Buyers shouldn't pay more just because an artist is a slow worker.The price should be based on the quality of the art itself and who the artist is.

I don't know but $15 dollars for a simple line art does seem like a lot, especially if you're
only getting a digital copy.

And ten extra dollars for a very simple coloring?

This. Stop harping on these artists for their prices. It costs more than just how long it takes because art is a skill and a luxury. If you're good enough then draw your own shit. I'm assuming the price differences are to encourage the buyer to get the $25 colored fullbody.

What social media do you guys recommend keeping for an artist?

I’ve kinda built up a following on Instagram, Twitter, and previously tumblr, but I noticed I really do not have a healthy relationship with social media in general. I’m constantly comparing myself to other artists that I follow, I become upset if my follower number goes down because I haven’t posted in a couple days, I feel like I always have to be on the grind uploading new art to keep my audience, then art feels like a chore..
I feel like it’s a shame to lose years of building up an audience on these apps to just delete my account, but it’s stupidly affecting how happy I am with my art and worth. I feel like you have to have an active online presence if you ever hope to ‘make it’ in the art world but ugh. Sorry for the vent.

No. 574676

>>574666
If art is your hobby, then your relationship to social media doesn't sound healthy. I'd say take a hiatus and then think about if and how you want to continue, maybe build up some work you could post or try something new. How often do you want to post, what do you want on your account (sketches, jokes, only finished, etc.)? Maybe unfollow other artists so you stop comparing and just do your own thing. You want to build up a following of people who appreciate you and your work, so if some people get bored easily and unfollow that's fine.

No. 574684

>>574653
While I don't disagree that the quality should be the main indicator of what art costs, I think time spent making it is still important. Some works just take longer, even between 2 equally skilled artist, one could spend more time on each piece due to their choice in style, should this person not take account the time spent in that work? As an artist you want to balance between what you think you deserve and what's the guality of your work worth, if people feel like the price doesn't reflect their standards; they just won't buy and that's ok. You should not lower your prices to the dirt just for the sake of getting few commissions that ultimately end up making you work for cents per hour.

And for this, while the quality is not the most impressive these prices are still dirt cheap, most kids could probably make that money by washing the dishes for 10 minutes.

As someone who has a toxic relationship with social media as well, I don’t follow anyone on my art socials. I just upload what I love and occasionally interact with bigger and smaller artists to build connections.

No. 574698

>>574684

The reason some works take longer is because there's a lot of detail involed, or the medium is difficult or complex. That is another indicator of cost. If the artist personally just needs a lot of time, it's not fair to factor that into the cost. So you might spends weeks on a painting, but it might not be very good.

You shouldn't lower your prices to the dirt, and obviously everyone can charge what they want, I just think 15 bucks seems a lot, for a line art, that an average speed artist could knock out in an hour at most. Coloring doesn't take that long either especially digitally.

It's not like 25 bucks is a lot of money, I just think it's a lot for what you get. If the person was getting a print, the price would be more reasonable I guess.

Your struggle is very common so don't feel alone or weird about this. Being constantly compared is part of being a part of artistic community unfortunately and best we can do is hope to get used to it. Try to make conscious effort to stop yourself from looking at followers count, will be hard in the beginning but eventually you can get rid of this habit alltogether - it's what you should do first and foremost.
As inspiring it can be to look at other great artists work, try to minimize it as much as you can. You can even put boundaries of yourself, something like - I'll not spend more than 15 minutes a day scrolling through other people's art. Ideally, cut it alltogether for some time, it was a great help to me when I realized i just spend way too much time looking at other people's stuff and hating my own instead of just focusing on my own development.
If you have a bit of active following already it definitely would be a loss to just abandon it. If your followers are not so engaged though, complete purge and hiatus could be helpful too. I used to have what I'd consider decent following on tumblr years ago (over 1k) but people followed me just for one fandom, never interacted on personal posts or anything that wasn't related to that fandom so it wasn't a loss to abandon that, just to give an example what could be an unvaluable following.

Overall, good luck with everything! you do need an active online presence to "make it" if you want to be a freelancer doing comissions, but it's not the only way - a loooot of professionals have zero online presence but make good money working on some bigger team projects, so that's a way for you to consider too.

This really is standard pricing. Artists really shouldn't go lower than this, because then there's pretty much no benefit to them to do commissions in the first place.
You're also assuming that any average artist can draw a picture in an hour or less, but that's actually pretty fast for any artist, regardless of their style.
You have to argue that, though, because if you understood that most art takes at least 2 hours, then you'd have to admit working for 12.5 dollars per hour is not ridiculous in the slightest.

I already said I disagree with hourly pricing. Not to mention artists can absolutly lie and say their work took longer than it did. There's no effective way to prove how long someone spent on a piece unless it's fully recorded.

I also don't think a full body line art takes two hours for any experieced artist.

Maybe I'm overestimating how quickly people can work, but irrelevant of that, I just think it's priced too high, not only because of the simplicity of the work but also because the commisions are soft copy.

I just think spending 15 dollars for a soft copy simple drawing and coloring is excessive, when you could go to any number of art convensions and gets prints and stickers for the same price.

I didn't mention my own commisions, because no one cares, but mine are priced lower, for the simple ones and for the a little bit of detail I go up in price, and the really expensive ones are the very detailed ones. Depending on where the person lives I also offer a hard copy for a little extra.

>Am I severly undervaluing art,

No. 574752

>>574732
A full body lineart, if it took one hour, would be 15 dollars per hour. Which is not an absurd wage to work at, especially for a skilled profession such as art.
But aside from that, you're also not taking in consideration supply and demand. There are many artists that we would consider to have terrible art, but they can price really high because people want their art so bad.
You may not think the art is worth it, but the mass majority of people think that the prices are fine.

this kind of comes off as, "I under-value my own art, so other artists should under-value theirs"

No. 574760

the reason the prices don't vary heavily is probably because the lineart is what takes the longest for the artist to do. from there, the artist just adds increments of 5 dollars, because adding color doesn't take as long as the lineart.
to have a lineart be 5 dollars, then the flat be 10 dollars, and the full body to be 15, would be to say that all parts of their drawing process take the same amount of effort and time.

No. 574762

>>574754

It's not a matter of under valuing art, I reached out a lot to artist and to my followers and looked at prices in general.

I get way more commisions now with my prices lowered a bit and get more money because more people are buying my work.

That piece is fanart, I make original work, and it's not as simple as >>574630, and my line art usually goes for $20 - $60 depending on how detailed.

I also am signed up to monthly patreons, where 2 prints and stickers/keychains etc. are sent out monthly for approx. 30$ + videos etc.

Like I said, per hour is nonsense, and the final product isn't worth 25$. Four of these would be 100$, and I could buy a lot more for the same amount at an artist convention in my area. Those would be hard copy pieces.

Obviously the prices are going to be different for really popular artists because they only have so much time to do commisions since they have a full time art related career. There's also a difference between people who make art and have a seperate career, and people do make art full time.

No. 574774

>>574766

Show me where I said I was better than them? This person in particular isn't being targeted by me. I don't even know who they are. I could have used any number of dozens of examples I have seen on other social media platforms, this just seemed like the easiest picture to use to ask my question on the worth of art. There are so many artist with varying price ranges I wanted to get a second opinion, since I see artists that do similar work, but for lower prices and ones that have a slightly higher price but whose work is much more detailed.

I don't want any one to talk shit, about this person, just to identify whether or not pricing is appropriate or if I'm under valuing their art, nothing here has convinced me yet, since hourly still sounds like bs.

Our art is also completly different? They make fanart (nothing wrong with that) and it's full color, I make black and white inked pieces. Their art style is also quite simple, which again, nothing wrong with that.

Whether one piece of art is technically better than the other doesn't matter and is subjective anyway, and we can't be compared since we don't even make the same type of art.

Never have I said I was better as an artist, and I only responded with personal pricing information as comparison, once it was brought up by other people.

Nice try though, trying to twist my words. If you have nothing to add to the question don't bother contributing.

I think this one is way under priced. I could easily see myself paying $50 for a full body from this one. Idc if its "ugly" I dig this style, it has nice form to it.

Just because good artists are asking for scraps doesn't mean beginners should ask for even less.

>>574829
I might count that as expensive, but for two reasons that have nothing to do with the artist's "greed." 1) I'm not at all in the market for this style and 2)Artists are chronically undervalued, namely good artists, so comparing even one of them to this person makes this person look expensive solely because a single artist who's style I love a lot more than this one is asking for less.

All commission prices boil down to is:
>as a buyer, would YOU be willing to pay that much for this style?
and
>as an artist, how much money would be worth it to YOU to put your effort in to draw something you're completely uninterested in and possibly have no prior knowledge on?

It really doesn't have much to do with skill level or notoriety or anything. The art market is oversaturated, if you just want a nice looking chibi style, go to any of the artists who have desperately lowered their prices to rock bottom levels in hopes of anyone at all buying from them. If you want Mr. XWeebMasterX's art specifically, you'll have to just cough up what he requires. "But so-and-so does it for less" that's your problem, pay so-and-so instead then. He's not being greedy, he's not being expensive. He has a specific tolerance level. he wont put himself through the hoops you want him to jump through for less than he's asking. Its really not that complicated

"Baseline" is a myth, if you can sell your soul for $5 a pop, just do it, you'll get more customers. But most people just aren't willing to put in that effort for that little, even if their art sucks.

Example: You couldn't pay me enough to mail you a print of my art. I do not want to be bothered dealing with that. I could ask $100 to mail an 11x8 print, and get no takers, and be happy, because I wouldn't have to put up with doing a chore for less compensation than I'd require.

I made OP, thanks for breaking it down, in general I agree, I just don't want customers to get ripped off.

I see a lot of people on Instagram and Twitter selling art, mostly fanart, and the people who buy from them and get patreon are younger and ask their parents for money. It's also that a person who isn't an artist might not be able to identify, whether or not they're paying a reasonable price.

There was a situation with an artist on Instagram, where they used bad paper or paints, or something, and sold a lot of pieces using those supplies and didn't even address it.

I just want customers to get a good value for what they’re paying, especially if it’s from teens or kids. I just wanted a discussion on here since people had a mixed opinions when I asked on my socials.

Artists using substandard materials for physical commissions is a real concern, but that doesn't apply to digital commissions unless the art is stolen or misrepresented. If someone sees a digital commission sheet and chooses to pay for it, and they receive original art that matches their agreement and the original commission reference sheet, you can't say they were "ripped off".
Art has no legal trade standard because it is a non-necessity and the value is completely up to the artist, as it should be, if people don't want to pay a high price then they don't have to because people don't need art to live. It's true that there is a average rate that commissioners might expect to pay but if an artist charges above the norm for their respective skill it doesn't mean they are ripping anyone off, it just means less people will want to buy their work but it's still a fair deal if someone wants to.

>Musicians meet and greets are also completly different from art since that is priced solely on popularity rather than talent and music. Not really a fair comparison.
except it isn't. we've already been over how artists can charge really high prices for low quality art, just because they're popular.
if there's demand, then that is what determines the price. period.
if an artist had high demand, and low prices, they will get too many commissions and won't be able to follow through. if their prices are too high, the demand will diminish to the point of it being nonexistent.
the artist finds commission prices that are just right for them, balancing supply and demand. that is why there is no standard price for commissions.

Dude the value of art is literally what you assign for it. If a kid sees a (digital) artwork they really like and want to commission the artist regarless of price then the value of that work is literally of the value that the kid is willing to pay (excluding ofc the case where the end result is of lower quality than the example). You gotta also remember that art is custom work, it's made to you by someone and every piece is different, it's not mass produced factory work so regardless how shitty the art itself may be, the fact that it's "one of the kind" should always be factored into the price.

Also wtf is with your logic, at first it was all about "omg I charge less than them thus these are overpriced" to "omg think of the children", Sorry but I ain't buying this.

I don't think my art is priced too low, it was priced too high before. This has nothing to do with my art at all, I only brought it up after it was brought up.

I'm also not trying to stop them, they can decide their own price. I'm not at all arguing that, people just continue to take words out of context and ignore the other replies. I was just wondering if despite the subjective nature of commissions there was a point of excessive cost?

Seriously if you read all of my posts in the thread, you'll see I never said, my art is better, or their art is bad or any shit like that.

you never said "my art is better", but you did say that you don't think their art is worth 25 dollars, which is a price people consider average. so you're saying their art is worth less than average
you also said you charge more than them for commissions, meaning you think your art is worth more than what is considered average
just because you don't directly say the words "my art is better" doesn't mean it isn't implied

No. 574920

I never said their art is bad, I said the price wasn't justified by the product. I like their art, it's not my favorite style, but I do think it's cute. I wouldn't pay 15 dollars for a simple line art. ME, PERSONALLY. If there were more details, then the price would be justified, or if they knocked off,
3-5 dollars. I posted an example of a commision where the price was similar but way more justified for ME.

The reason I charge more commisions, which you would know if you read the thread, is because our art is completly different, and therefore prices can't be compared. I do traditional inking, which are usually very complex and charge 20 -60 dollars.
I'm not saying my art is worth more, because they can't even be compared. I brought this up because people said I undervalued my art, should put my prices up, or I thought my art was better, which I never said. Read my replies.

Like I said people talk shit and take things out of context to try and make you seem like you're saying something <ou're not. All I ever questioned whether there was any sort of metric for commision cost. Nothing more nothing less. Everything else, is people shit stirring.

I find this rather funny cause it’s not actually that impressive at all. Most of her audience is either young or beginners so ofc they would much rather watch someone who’s skill level is ”attainable” than someone who’s actually good because to an aspiring artist, a good art is usually more discouraging than it is inspiring. If you post a lot, be ”relatable” and have appealing skill level for beginner, the people will flock to you in masses. This isn’t any rocket science, youtube art community is massively kid centric and youtube itself os trying to be more and more family friendly. Appealing to kids is the lowest kind of achievement as they’re easily impressed by fucking everything.

Easy in words, amazingly hard in reality. I don't know why some people with shit art manage this when they can't manage to learn the fundies but we all know at least one amazing artist that never breaks a couple of likes.

I mean yea obviously there is something to praise for, for being able to consistently upload and I do find that it often comes with the cost of quality. I honestly don't know almost any artubers who upload often and are able to keep the quality of the work up, it pretty much always takes a dip. I would also remind that not every artist is even so deeply interested in youtube, a lot of artists got other social media that they use as their "main" while youtube is usually just an extra dumping ground, that ofc comes with the low engagement. That's why I don't ultimately consider rea's achievement to be that impressive, as well as I have never really seen her try to improve her content or art for that matter. Though I must admit I don't really watch her either, just kinda what I've seen on the surface.

I think it's natural to be worried if other people's feelings towards you are genuine, especially when you're an artist on Twitter. There are many who will try to drag you through the mud, or take advantage of you.
However, I think it's best not to worry about it. It helps me mentally to assume that everyone has benign intentions, until proven otherwise. Any new people that interact with me, I interact politely, as with a business acquaintance. I keep my distance for a while and maintain politeness until we become friends or I understand their motives for talking to me.

It deteriorated so fast some experts argue it might as well not be considered his work since it had to be restored so much.

Uh, I think there's a misunderstanding here lol. What I'm trying to say is that the sperg from yesterday was ridiculous because she was throwing a fit over an artist charging barely anything for their art, but meanwhile this person is obviously overcharging their art. They can charge whatever they want and art is usually very undervalued so I don't even mind higher prices, but 200 bucks is just too objectively too expensive for the effort and quality that you'd be paying for in this instance. 60 dollars max for one drawing of this quality would've been more fair imo.

How do you objectively overprice art? Like I said before the value of work is the value you assign to it. This is fucking tiring when people rage over prices, shouldn't you guys be happy that people are actually willing to pay 200$ for this kind of stuff as it means that there are still clients out there who actually value art. Also 200$ for art is not that much at all if you think what it actually takes to make art. A lot of people who do commissions put a lot more work into them than what you see on surface, anything from setting up the composition and perspective, lighting and mood of the image and possible design aspects. It's not factory work where you repeat the same pattern, even the most unoriginal instagram portraits take at least some planning as you know you don't want every work to have exact copy cat pose. When you account that all to few hours it takes to actually draw the work 200$ is more than fair.

$60 for a drawing of a character that most likely takes around 2 hours to make really isn't "nothing". That's 30 dollars an hour.
Also just realized that the drawing we are talking about is 500 dollars for a 2 character piece. For some reason I thought it was 200 bucks for 2 individual drawings, my bad.

You cannot compare making art to a freaking mc donalds employee. Art is a gig based job it takes more than "do A and then B and then repeat" to make art, even shitty art. Do you whine about wedding photographers making several thousand in one gig despite it being just "clicking a button"? The answer is no because people who're willing to pay for art understand that they're paying for years of expertise and not just the labor itself. If anyone could do art just like that, no one would pay for artists, yet artists are essential in every field for design and marketing and that's what you're paying for. when you pay couple hundred for 2h work, you pay for their vision and not just the time work. This all applies even for less impressive artists, even mediocre art takes some effort to create and it's good that art is being valued.

Anyway just a little nitpick. I also really can't stand when bisexual people like her act like because they date someone of the opposite sex and some gays will outright say that this coupling is not oppressed, it is a form of oppression or ahem, "Bisexual erasure".

Regarding the pricing debate, this thread is so fucking obviously filled with salty teenage amateur artists who can't stand someone they're jealous of making money selling "overpriced" art. I don't see anything wrong with selling character designs at $500, people fucking sell customized dolls and shit for the same amount and up and nobody minds. Art and design are ridiculously underpriced to begin with, I'd feel bad paying someone only $30 for a full colour portrait if they put like 15 hours into making it. If you can finish a drawing like that in 2 hours so you can justify a $30 price tag then good for you, it either looks like unappealing diarrhea you're completely underpricing your work. Technical skills don't equal consumer appreciation and people here need to learn that if they ever want to become a commercial artist.

Wait, I’m confused anon, are you annoyed that TD is acting “oppressed” because that whole stereotype of “then why aren’t you with the opposite sex”-thing?

It’s kinda basic snowflake behavior out of TD. I wouldn’t be surprised if she isn’t even bisexual and thought that “well I recognize that girl is cute, therefore I must be bisexual and be apart of a minority”- but that’s neither here nor there for that kind of discussion

To be fair, I'm fine with Pewdiepie and Jenna but, Gabbie is being currently dragged because she bitched at Youtube that she was shadow banned when it more than likely was people not being interested in her shitty music. And Shane is being held accountable for pushing the narrative that James Charles was a predator and then saying afterwards he needed to be humbled.

>You hold other creators accountable and that puts you on some moral high ground?? But it's different when it's you?

She's lumping in Shane with people like Pewdiepie. Pewdiepie had his controversy a long time ago, has never done anything like it again, and did a respectful apology. Shane responded by saying that James Charles deserved it and then bounced off Twitter (or at least pretended to). Shane will continue to support, be friends with, and defend Jeffery Star.
Their controversies aren't even comparable. She's just lumping them together to make Shane seem more reasonable and make her dissenters appear more unreasonable.

Thank you, Jesus fucking christ. Pewdiepie and Jenna actually took responsibility for their past mistakes and got better.

Tsu is genuinely probably one of my favourite artists, but I still couldn't fucking imagine paying that much for her art. Her anatomy can be wonky, her shading/colouring is muddy, and her lineart never feels finished. I remember I was excited when she said she was opening her commissions, but her cheapest slot was near 100 for iirc what was pretty much a sketchy bust/halfbody. Makes me wonder how many coms she got considering even someone as far up her asshole as me wouldn't touch prices like that

I'll be real anon, I think trans is a bunch of BS but I have to ask, if someone really doesn't include "Girl dick" in their line of characters and they may even be vocal that they don't think transwomen are women, can their art business really take that much of a hit? I would like to think that if the person is still decent despite not believing in trans and they have a genuine good or unique art style, they can still prevail and make it.

But I'm not active on Twitter and I know this is where that bullshit tends to happen so I can't say that I know just how it is for an artist who doesn't believe in the ideology and what can happen to their art business if it's found out.

And yeah, I'm not even sure if TD is actually bisexual and not doing exactly what you said where she thinks that if she thinks a girl is attractive, that makes her bisexual.

This thread seems to be dominated by these types even more than usual now. The constant whining about someone having expensive supplies or "overcharging" (i.e. asking the price consumers are willing to pay) is so obviously deep rooted in jealousy and bitterness over someone else's success. People keep bringing up how someone like Sakimichan doesn't "deserve" the ridiculous amount of money she receives each month just because of their favourite "her anatomy sucks" cope. I'm sorry to tell you all this but you're not entitled to fame and money no matter how much technical skill you have because art is not a meritocracy.

They don't have to, they're already drawing tons of girldicks to slap on everyone's faces. The point is to colonize female creations and keep those dumb cis staceys at check so they know their places.
>they're setting themselves up to be flagged for harassment if they're persistent.
Only if it were so easy. If you don't reply they just keep pulling out bigger guns to bully a reaction out of you. If you keep calm and never address the drama, they'll start harassing everyone who likes and shares your art with "Hey you know this artist is a transphobe right??? would be sad if we had to cancel you too you know…..". The tranny cultists are fucking insane and go above and beyond to punish an artist who doesn't pander to their mentally ill asses. Especially because the artist circles are so woke and an artist's income depends much on their social reputation it's particularly depressing.

No. 576416

If the proportions aren't right, you should study that first over anatomy. Instead of getting bogged down in the details, you should practice getting a simple mannequin in the same pose/proportion/perspective as the photo first, then add the fat and muscles ontop. Its recommended to exaggerate the gesture a bit so that the end result doesn't look stiff - but maybe for now just focus on accuracy.

I'm suspicious that a lot of anons are artistsfags themselves and are getting insecure and annoyed when people talk about money.

The original art sperg anon posted was a dumb example but they have a point. There are ways to determine the average price of art, and those criteria are pretty fullproof although there are exceptions.

Saying art has whatever value you assign to it is fucking stupid, because I could sell a Gucci plain white shirt for 600 dollars and that would be a rip off as well, even though there are people who pay that price.

It's actually possible to make fun of delusional artists and the people stupid enough to pay their ridiculous prices at the same time.
It's also funny to see people whine about the value of art. Art is a product just like anything else, it doesnt have inherently more value than any other product.

No. 576641

>>576629
The concept of artists ripping off people because they charge $100 for a commission or whatever makes no sense because the customers determine the value of someone's art, not the artist. Like gucci can sell their shit for $600, because $600 is a reasonable price for millionaires who want to buy gucci. Gucci is not for poor people. Art is a luxury item in the same way, it is a non-essential product, so it has no monetary value until it is given one by someone who's willing to pay for it

There's a fucking spectrum of topics to discuss besides "intellectual high art" and seething over someone's $100 character commissions. I'm not in high school anymore, being jealous over someone making money fair and square isn't interesting. The thread keeps being derailed back into the "how dare this bitch earn her living doing drawings I don't like" territory and it attracts an equally boring and cringy userbase.

>Saying art has whatever value you assign to it is fucking stupid, because I could sell a Gucci plain white shirt for 600 dollars and that would be a rip off as well, even though there are people who pay that price.

No, a ripoff would be someone charging you $10 for the same brand of coffee you could get for $5 across the street. If a Gucci plain white shirt became a huge viral meme and every rich brat wanted one for the brand, the price tag would be justified. All in all most designs are just plain clothes and the price comes from the privilege of getting to wear a luxurious logo. Art isn't absolute and the price is set by demand and prestige, nothing else. Like it or not.

Anyone can learn perfect anatomy if they study and practice hard enough but even if your stuff was fit for the biology books you can't slap a price tag of $500 per commission on it if you're a no name artist with no following. Or, you can do that, but nobody will be paying for it. I've seen subpar artists have their commission slots filled in seconds and them dragging their feet working on what they were paid for and constantly being hateful towards their customers. Yet these artists keep getting business simply because they have a brand and a style everyone wants a piece of. I'm sure someone thinks your favourite artists are overrated garbage who don't deserve the recognition they're getting on a constant basis as well.

And as for your "y-you're just insecure!!" strawman, I do art as a side business and earn good money from my day job because I couldn't give less shits about constantly networking and building my brand like one has to do in order to actually make a coin with art. At least I realized this early on and got an actual fucking degree instead so I can afford a roof over my head.

>it makes me wonder how some of my viewers think I’m a guy based on my art.
I used to have a small following for NSFW art on tumblr and 4chan, I mostly drew solo pin-ups of popular anime girls or whatever "draw your character wearing this" trends. I never shared photos or personal details other than my age and gender, but many users decided I was a guy who was just pretending to be a girl to get more attention/commissions. They wouldn't believe that the only reason I wouldn't share photos was because I wanted to keep my privacy, they said if I wanted to be successful for my art then I would get more attention anyway for sharing selfies like other successful girls who do it, and so to them the only reason that I wasn't sharing photos was that I must be a man. After that sometimes people would point to certain bits of my style as proof that I was a man like if I drew clothing that only men like etc. My following didn't change but it really frustrated me to see the dumb things that they decided were proof

I don't think you can ever know for sure whether than artist is male or female but imo with western hetero art there is usually a sense of personal wish fulfillment in art drawn by men of what they would like to see whereas women are usually just trying to create an image of a beautiful character that others will like or they can imagine themselves as.

As someone who is Western and making ero art, there's a weird thing where they expect female artists to be way more transparent or meet certain tropes. They get excited over the idea of you being female, but also blame you for "having it easy" (which isn't true).

This happened to me and a lot of other people I know. Call me a tranny or a man, If I don't want to show my face that's that. What the hell? Some people get so pushy over it too, some feel like they're entitled to see your face after you've seen theirs. In general, people are so obsessed with getting pictures of you if you're a girl that I often just pretend to be a guy most of the time.

>certain bits of my style as proof that I was a man like if I drew clothing that only men like etc.

This is the worst one. I draw anime girls being sexy because I'm sexually attracted to the female form. That and I also dabble in hetshit and yuri lol. I don't get how that makes me seem "male" to people.

It definitely didn't used to be this way. It used to be about protecting your identity, your info, etc. Internet safety was like a huge thing in the 90s. That rather quickly changed with sites like MySpace and Facebook. Along with cameras on phones. We all sort of dove right in. I remember not being all the way on board with it but then my friends started tagging me in pictures without asking. Now most everyone is a part of a huge database whether they want to be or not. Society is very voyeuristic like that. We give our information away way too easily, and I hate it.

There’s nothing wrong with tracing your own photography or using tools like design doll that are specifically for artists to use. It’s not uncommon for manga artists take their own photos or have their assistants get them because they have deadlines and the tracing saves time. Also, if you don’t already know how to draw using a model will be a crutch and it’ll probably be obvious that something 3D is being traced over.

It becomes a problem when artists trace images that are copyrighted or used without the permission of the person who made it. For example, this mangaka’s career got trashed for a while because she blatantly copied a photo from a modeling shoot someone else took. But some other ones have been able to get away with it because their art looks more like a homage, like Hirohiko Araki and Takehiko Inoue.

Rae made a new video. She's using one of the best and most luxurious oil paints (Old Holland) in the world, and still is comparing them to cheap crap. There's nothing wrong with just saying "Hey these are good, and also super expensive, maybe don't invest if you're not super serious".

She complains that the packaging isn't good enough for the price point (that's not why they're expensive Rey) and that one color from the set looks just as good as its counterpart in the $7 oil paint set. She also compares them to the $60 sennelier oil paints, and says that they are practically the same.

Does she really not understand why the price is so high? Not only is everything handmade/clamped/painted, the ingrediants are of the highest quality and there's no filler or crap in the paint. It's lightfast and the paint won't crack or age badly, or be prone to discoloration. Not to mention the formula of the paint, and their mixing/glazing properties and all the years of research that went into creating it. Considering how famous the brand is and their immpecable standards, that price point is still really cheap. This is just seems so ungrateful and lazy.

If you actually know what you're doing, the profit margin is so high, so of course the materials are going to be expensive. Not only are you paying for all the work and materials that go into making them, you're also paying for the decades of research and development, the fact that it's a famous brand, and the fact that you could make that money back with one single piece, depending on the artist.

it's more apparent in this picture, but the images looked manipulated in some way. i'm not sure if she used a filter, but in this image, her eyes look abnormally large. the skin gives me that "skin smoother filter" vibe. this could be a result of a low res cam and a lot of makeup, so i'm not sure.
what i am sure of, is that the deadass expression she keeps giving the camera looks lifeless and dead, as if i'm looking at a lifelike blowup doll.
also shannon's eyes are blue in this pic, but not in that pic. do her eyes change color?

if you were active in /a/ drawthreads I think I remember this shit(or something similar). anyway, my condolences for witnessing sexist neckbeards trying to analyse your art, must be frustrating. and then they wonder why we won‘t be open about being female, lol.
I used to drawfag there back in the day, and only did the cute requests I liked or the ones which actually depicted the character doing something which makes sense (and sometimes just silly stuff).
my deliveries were always of pretty high quality for these threads and some especially persistens fuckers (maybe samefag) made snarky passive agressive remarks complaining that their degenerated requests were mostly ignored, like we owe them something.
If the people already behave like this for anonymous drawfags on some imageboard, it is no wonder that so many artist/mangaka are very secretive about their personal stuff

she posts these to boost her self confidence, but when you make alterations to the photos, that seems like it would defeat the purpose. fans are going to hoard over you, no matter what, so by posting altered photos, it just sets it in your mind that the fans love the fake version of you, and the you you isn't good enough.
also, if you're that insecure, don't post pics till you have actual confidence in yourself. relying on other people to give you confidence instead of having it in yourself will only lead to toxic attention seeking behavior and unhealthy mental statuses.

You’re brave anon. The autism on there can wear anybody out. Especially when they’re deadest on getting you to draw they’re shitty coomer requests. I feel that /ic/ is kinda similar but you’d expect that behavior from a bunch of art crabs. I do love the “your style,my style” type meme that people sometimes post on there.

Yeah, op anon chose a dumb example. There are instances of fake woke people, who just do lgbt art for mainstream praise, but this artist actually thought these drawings through.

I get what you're saying, but that's not transgenderism. That's hermaphroditism and it's part of those animals' reproductive cycles.

agreed, especially on the dark skinned characters with european features thing. they change the skin color slightly to get woke points, but won't take a few minutes to reference poc people and change their face slightly. of course it can be argued that some poc people have facial features that lean towards european, but in my opinion incorporating that only works well in realistic styles, most of these artists work in cartoony or anime styles so they should make the distinctions between the races they draw more apparent.

Rewriting cause my grammar was shit.

The art is cute and it's nice to see an artist put thought into their work and not just pander to sjw audiences, and expect a mountain of praise.

Artists paint for woke points, but not to actually represent people. It's not at all thoughtful in the same way some artists will paint characters with eurocentric facial features, like little noses, but then just give them a darker skin tone and act as if they really did something.

It also doesn't help that "ethnic" features like big lips, are so popular right now a la Kylie Jenner. Every single oc I see drawn has big lips, but then they can't even bother to draw poc correctly.

I follow a few trans women and 0% of them have any dick dysphoria, in fact they encourage acceptance of visible dicks and such, as well as general acceptance of other more male traits or things women would have a crisis over if we had 'em

So I can see why they would wish to be included in art of women even while presenting male traits and or dick

It makes sense if you follow trans people, it's a perspective. Dysphoria is not considered to be a requirement of transness anymore, though cis people tend to speak on behalf of trans people and spread inaccurate info in regard to dysphoria and whether you can just wake up and decide you are a girl/boy (trans concensus is this is fine, but cis people tend to argue against this while supporting/representing trans folk)

I use this moodboard generator when I'm feeling uncreative https://perchance.org/moodboard-generator. It's kind of a challenge, like finding ways to incorporate the photos into a character design. Also sims and pinterest.

For the genrator, you can check the boxes on the left side to get different color schemes. If you only have warm checked, it will only produce warm colors. Underneath the box that says "Enter nothing" is two boxes that say topic suggestion and weight. If you want something specific then put it in topic suggestion, and type the number of photos you want in "weight", eg. putting "cat" in topic suggestion, and 3 in weight will give you 3 photos of cats.

This is a slight sperg on pinterest, but I can't be the only one who hates it as a tool for finding reference. The site itself is so invasive if you don't have an account. You can't really delete it all the way and every time you want to Google a reference you have to be careful not to click a pinterest link or its jumping on your ass begging for you to sign up. I type in "-pinterest" to avoid all of it, but it doesn't always work, or I don't always remember. I get the use for it as an organization tool for reference but as a picture aggregate site it's just really annoying to navigate and easy to waste time in. Usually when someone gives me their pinterest board to look at, I skip it because it's usually a hot mess I dont want to slog through. Once they have your email, it's game over.

I feel iffy about True Crime stuff when it comes to recent crimes like murders and missing persons. That's why I don't watch a lot of True Crime youtubers, because it feels exploitive. The amount of people I see talking about JonBenét Ramsey makes me sick.

It's different when it's coming from an individual rather than journalists. If it's more like Buzzfeed unsolved, that would be better. Or maybe she'll stick to talking about urban legends and mysteries.

I agree though, rae can't even do her research on art supplies and techniques, I don't trust her when it comes to this either.

Since this board has evolved I want to ask anons a question. How do you hide insincerity from your followers without feeling like shit? My following has grown alot recently and they're interested in buying prints and other things with my art on them. The thing is I think merch is dumb, never bought them except for art books. I don't get blowing money on pins, stickers or whatever. Now I feel really conflicted, it's an awesome opportunity to finally earn money with my art but I feel like a lying piece of crap. How do you guys deal with doing things you disagree with on a fundamental level?

Are you an idiot? People want to buy your art, and you think it would immoral for you to sell to them? What, are you tracing or some shit? Because it's either that or you're actually retarded.

No. 580363

>>580349
If they really like your art and want to buy it there's really no issue with insincerity. Maybe just make a poll or something and ask them what kind of mech they want, and try to find ideas you like. It's a good opportunity to make money so I really don't see a reason to feel guilty. Just make sure you price it well so it's affordable but also you make a good profit.

No. 580364

>>580363
Agreed. I understand not wanting to do something you morally dont agree with but its literally just selling shitty merch to a 12 year old. Its what most online artists do just to scrape by, there is literally no reason for you to be morally upset by the selling of merch. If you dont want to do it just dont, but dont come onto a forum and brag about how you could sell art but dont want to.

No. 580368

I'm sorry if I sounded rude or offended anyone, I didn't mean it to come out like that. And no I don't trace, I just started drawing normie shit. And since I have never bought merch I didn't think it was ok sell them but you guys are right. I guess I needed a reality check.

In all honesty, recent anons are starting to sound like this one where they think this forum has all of the answers, when really they’re just being lazy af.
Like, “who do I follow to be inspired?”, “I’m not original, so how do I make original character designs”- normally I’m not bothered by beginner artists, but I feel like this really isn’t the place to take short cuts into becoming a better artists

No. 580401

>>580349
You don't want pins of your art because you're the artist and can just draw or make something yourself. Your fans can't do it hence wanting merch. There's nothing insincere about people wanting copies of your work that you don't personally want due to being the person who made it. Like how actors don't watch their own movies. You are the thing so you can't be expected to want…yourself if that makes sense?

No. 580407

Used to have a big following of young kids and teenagers, so it felt immoral to charge money for my art even though there was demand. So I can understand you if your situation is similar.

No. 580410

>>580407
It depends on the art really. There's idots out there like Jake Paul and Tana whatever her last name is, that make bank off of young kids, but are complete assholes. This is obviously not that similar, and as long as you're giving good quality merch at a good price, it's not that big a deal to want to seel work. Even if it's art you're not really proud of.

No. 580416

Agreed. I was a beginner artist long ago lol but I didn’t need to be spoonfed the most basic shit. Though, back when I started, there wasn’t a plethora of resources available to me like younger artists have now so there really isn’t any excuse to not do a google search for what you need.

In all fairness, there is some good advice from well meaning artists here (as far as traditional/digital tools are concerned).

Hard agree, I especially hate when True Crime content related to recent murders or missing persons cases is presented with a funny/silly tone. I was turned off Buzzfeed Unsolved when they did an Eliza Lam 'investigation' and drank the water at the hotel as a joke. Like, you're talking about a young woman who died alone and terrified under mysterious circumstances, have some respect.

There's no way Rae will do enough research on whatever she's talking about. She studied oil painting and she still sucks at it, so what chance does she have to make a good TC series?

No. 580572

>>580476
That was one of the early true crime videos on buzzfeed and I’m also real iffy about TC stuff, especially cuz yeah it’s real people and usually the people who get away with shit are white people, but the supernatural series is better since it’s more removed from like actual people and is more about yelling at ghosts or mothman

I haven’t been to an art school, but I really want to experience it, at least for one semester.

No. 580872

>>580803
Imo it can be useful for networking but I find it actively detrimental for creativity because you have to appeal to professor tastes in the end. For just learning the craft I'd say you're probably faster out of school unless you want to do something you need special resource-intensive workshops for that you can't access otherwise.

No. 580890

>>580756
I'm entering into my sophomore year as an illustration student. It honestly all depends on the profs you get tbh. Of course your first semester/freshman year you wont be doing heavy major related work, most of it is based off of foundations such as life drawing and 3D sculpture as well as learning programs like photoshop and illustrator. From my experience if you already have a good following and can make a decent amount off of your art already theres no reason for you to go to school but if you feel like you need that extra push in your art then maybe go for a semester or two. Another anon mentioned connections and those are extremely important too, because one of my illustration profs has connections to places like nickelodeon and cartoon network ive been offered story board projects for a couple of independent projects that pay pretty well. In my experience art school has been worth it (especially because i want to work as an industry artist and not freelance artist) but if you're already good and set theres no real reason too.

No. 580898

>>580890
(this is the same person) I also forgot to mention that being in school helps with opportunities such as internships and having a mentor. In my experience having a professional illustrator help mentor me through school and the summer has helped me stay on track with my goals and set up a time table for myself.

Another thing is is that it depends on your school. I have friends in schools across the country (in schools like SCAD, CCA, MassArt, etc.) and theyve all done pretty different things from what ive seen. My school wont hire a prof unless theyre still a fully working artist, so none of my profs are retired and just doing it for the money. Because of my profs and theyre connections from jobs theyve had ive had opportunities to do editorial illustrations for TIME, storyboards for independent projects, local art for the city the school is in, etc. Most big name schools look nice for a diploma but its all about what the school offers you and what you get out of it.

I'm not sure if i should ask this here or on career advice but

18 and I'm graduating this year and I was wondering what art career path I should follow
should I go to college and get a useful major and get a 9-5 job while doing commission work part time
and eventually do it full time? im ok with drawing porn and pandering to fandoms.

or go to an art school for animation or illustration, get connections and try to break into the
animation or game art industry. Money is not a problem though my parents want me to stay in Canada for post-secondary
and i heard most work is in California and the states in general.


i really want to do art as a career and I've been doing a lot research but I've been hearing a bunch of different advice
and i find myself lost.

No. 581069

Same questions different day.
Sorry but these kinds of things have been discussed before and if you really want advice from here, just read the old threads.
Kind of sick of kids coming in here with basic art questions. There are no right answers. A lot of it comes down to what you decide at the end of the day. A lot of these questions just come with experience you don't have yet. Not your fault. Just make a decision for yourself.

No. 581074

>>581065
It really depends on what you think you can feasibly do with the resources you have and how easily you think you can do it. You mention art as a career but do you know WHAT aspects of art, like you mention animation and illustration but those are broad terms. You HAVE to be specific with yourself, what part of animation do you want to do and what research have you done into it?

Or are u satisfied with doing art just as a hobby and a hustle on the side? Like would artists in your area make enough money to live independently (and no, just being able to pander to fandoms doesn’t make a living since there’s tons of artists already out there). Do you have the money and resources to afford schooling or do you need to take out loans? Can you look into doing online classes and workshops instead, like CG master academy or schoolism, or do you really want to go to an immersive school? Did you look into other careers that are art adjacent, like merchandising or coding or production or business?

We’re a dang milk forum that exists to make fun of cows on the internet so why like are u not turning to actual people with career experience and advice on other dang websites? You’re obviously still indecisive and we’re not an advice forum

No. 581091

>>581065
To be honest, if you don't make art your full career, art will not be any part of your income. You might draw for fun once in a while, but anyone working a non-art, full time job is not going to have the time nor energy to maintain a side hustle as an artist.
You really just have to decide. The illustration and animation industries require a lot of discipline and willingness to do what your client/boss wants. Art school is good for learning how to work around other people's desires and also to try new things with the benefit of knowledgeable outside input.
Basically, if you're doing an art degree, you have to be sure you're willing to stick with it and carve out a practice for yourself. Otherwise, you're left with a useless degree and four wasted years. I was in your position, I chose art school, and I don't regret it. Just make sure that illustration/animation/concept art is absolutely what you can picture yourself doing for the best part of the rest of your life, or there's no point.

I seriously think there are absolutely no opportunities to be an industry artist if you're not in the US. There are no known art schools, and even if you go to one in your country you'll end up being a shitty art teacher in a middle or elementary school at best. If you're freelance there's no market, if you go into animation, illistration or concept art the industry is nonexistent. You're doomed if you're unable to move.

Go on YT and look up lulusketches/Laura price, she’s an animation industry youtuber and she’s covered this before because her degree was Studio Art and French at the university of Virginia so she’s self taught and has worked for Disney and Cartoon Network as a background painter. If you’re US based applying to US companies then yeah it’s really about showing you have the things you say you can do in your portfolio and having that portfolio cater to the company you’re applying for as well as knowing other professionals that can refer you and what they also are looking for in their industries. It only does get hard for international people because of visa reasons but it’s not impossible, in the US you have to be sponsored by your company usually through the immigration process and I know for Canada you have to prove you need to hire this person over a Canadian

We all know only the usa has an internal market demand for art, everywhere else we just barter items on the street like in the bronze age, have no national production of tv/movies/books/comics or any semblance of a cultural scene. Our overlords, the usa, graciously offers us non murican artists career opportunities (if you pay 400.000 dollars in tuition) because the founding fathers created the art/design industry in the 1800s and decided to share it with us.

This is the most dumbass gringo take I have ever seen, on god. I guarantee you most creative jobs are actually not in the usa, and they pay the bills just as fine. Even inside the us, most artists don’t live on hollywood/videogame/NYT paychecks either. Take a look outside your mom’s basement for 5 seconds.
