I know this is long as hell and a couple of months old, but I wanted to know what you guys think about Cosmic Spectrum Art's numbers here? At about the 25 min mark she mentions numbers like $50 per hour being an okay amount to charge for what she describes as a 'reasonable skill level', but that she's expecting a lot more than that. Mentions at some point that her commission work is in the thousands generally. Mentioned she did a children's book cover for $3000, she'd want around $1000 or more a page for graphic novels, numbers like that.

Not really sure what the make of this. I mean good for her if she can get this amount, but that seems so unfathomably high to me? Are people really out there dropping thousands of dollars on 2D images? And is $50 per hour really not too high of a starting rate for commissions?

No. 605342

These are actually closer to real industry standards. The thing is that art is not meant to be affordable to the general public, it's a luxury for the few so it's gonna cost money, I think it's good she can charge that much, gives hope for the rest.

No. 605343

>she did a children's book cover for $3000
Not unreasonable if it's for a major company. Work from professional clients usually pays a ton more than commissions for randos, since they're not only paying for the image but for the rights to print the image, use it for promotion, and etc.
>$1000 or more a page for graphic novels
Now that's crazy. Comic rates are around $200- 300 for inks tops, for big companies like Marvel and DC. If she was asking that much for fully painted comic pages I could maybe see it, but otherwise it's a pretty insane rate.

No. 605349

Same anon who posted the vid here. Sorry if I'm not replying correctly, don't post much.

Hah, that's actually quite comforting to put it that way.
I know when I was going commissions like a good decade ago, some artist I looked up to said something along the lines of that you should be charging at least minimum wage + materials cost per hour. If you couldn't charge at least that and still get work, you weren't ready to start to take work. And if you could charge more that that, you were making it. So $50 an hour kind of shocked me, as in my head, I'd be expecting only someone very popular to get away with charging that much.
Definitely gives me hope that art is becoming a more livable career.

She actually googled the rates in the video and found those same numbers you quoted, then later added that really big names at top companies could charge as much as $1000 per page, and that she'd be expecting about that for pencils inks and colours herself. So same info I guess, which again, surprises the hell out of me, in a good way.

File: 1597545046782.jpg (62.43 KB, 361x977, IMG_20200607_120328.jpg)

There was an artist that charged $1 per minute and she could draw out a very nice commission with color in an hour, so she earned $60. She recorded this on video with a timer for proof for the commissioner I assume. I wish I could remember the youtube video sorry. Anyway $50 per hr isn't unreasonable if you work fast. You can raise your prices as high as you want if you have demand. $3000 for a book cover is very reasonable for professional publishing.

Anoosha Syed listed prices she earned for her children's book illustrations. It's very profitable when you start getting consistent work

No. 605368

One of my profs taught a course on children book illustration and he would base his projects off of jobs he'd taken before. He would also give us the price range of the jobs he took and if your a good and flexible artist children book illustrations can make you a lot of money. But the thing is is that the checks come in as you're working on the book and then periodically whenever the book sells, so its not like you're just getting 2,000 dollars all at once.

After is better, although I don't understand why they would add so much to the foreground.

No. 605401

the after completely messed up the mood of the piece. Not to mention it seems like she just airbrushed away so much detail for no reason other than to 'make it moody' but then added yellow lighting??

No. 605407

seriously suspecting this is samefagging. Your attempted thread on this woman got marked as shit by the farmhands and now you're taking your sperging here instead.
After is better. Artists giving someone a critique aren't going to spend multiple days re-drawing the picture, that's why there's airbrushing. It doesn't look 100% finished because it's not supposed to be, it's just a quick mockup of some changes the original artist could go back and work on.

No. 605409

I was thinking this was probably a vendetta post because after is clearly better composition wise lol. By removing the canal they moved the main focal point of picture in the mid-ground down to the center of the piece. The colors look more harmonious and the blurring of the stuff in the foregorund also adds depth. Seems like you either don't know how concept art works or just have a petty grudge >>605391

controversial opinion about OP pic I guess but I think the artist is right in the description - the art did get worse but new style does stand out more, much more vibrant and attention-grabbing with thick outlines, 2016 style is anatomically better but bland and unoriginal AF. She is on the right path even if she had to take a few steps back in the process.

No. 605571

I'm none of the anons you replied too and this is the first time I've seen that image, and I disagree with you entirely on the after being better composition. I think it's far worse: removing the canal removes the sense of space, and moving the rat more central shifts focus to it without reason - the focus was obviously intended to be the city in the original, not the foreground elements.

No. 605579

yeah, the new drawing is less washed out, but she's not "in the right direction". the "right direction" isn't sacrificing everything to make your drawing stand out just a little bit more (until anyone above the age of 14 looks at it and realizes it's shit)

NTA but is the focus really the foreground? My eye was drawn to the mid ground and swept over the city, thanks to the color harmony of the warmer light rays. I don’t know if removing the canal was important or not

Also a nice touch is that the farthest away lights are dimmer

No. 605616

yeah same. without redrawing the entire piece it would be hard to edit it so the canal is in there while the focus stays on the city. it's not even that important of an element imo.

No. 605618

I personally think before is better, the canal leads the eye nicely around the picture but in the second one there’s nothing like that. The colors are also more harmonious and don’t jump into your eyes allowing you to focus on the details. The after picture for me looks disorted and the perspective is off now that the canal got erased, the original is more readable and doesn’t give me nausea. The after image also causes you to focus on the blinding lights rather than the bg which should be the focus, so objectively the original is better and I don’t get how so many people unironically think the fix os good.

No. 605622

You do realize that if just zooming the picture fucks the perspective up, it was fucked in the first place too? It feels like the canal leads your eyes away from the picture, you can't take it all at once because you go along it, see the big hole and then finally focus on the town. Doesn't feel like a natural course at all. Also are you an actual grandma that you say slightly more contrasting lights are blinding and that an image causes you nausea lmao.

No. 605629

I like the concept of the cooler toned light rays, but then they would definitely still need to bring in some yellow in other parts of the pic. And make the background look more distanced like in the after pic

No. 605677

The perspective is still better in the first one, and the canal leads to the back wall which then leads to the city the fuck that is. When I say blinding light I don't mean literally, I mean it in the context of the image, the lights come in a way of the image, they wash out the city and take away the contrast, the second image looks like it has no vocal point because nowhere there are strong values, except the black frame. As for nausea it's more about the frame vs the city itself, the second image, tried to lift up and close the scene but did nothing to the perspective, so now we have this weird stretched image with very offscale image, that is irritating to look at.

No. 605699

The before is better. Everything seems washed out in the after along with that thick black framing. The inclusion os the canal is important imo, since it gives the pieces direction, implying that the space is larger than what our eyes can see. The second one is more limiting and closed off. There are ways to alter perspective without cutting off parts of a drawing.

That being said I like the beams of light more in the after, although I wish they weren't so yellow, especially the light in the background. It takes away from the lights of the city, which are a more muted yellow orange tone and are clearly supposed to draw the eye.

No. 605700

I think both need help, but the first one is better.
The first image doesn't have enough contrast for you to focus on the city. The canal leads you down to the hole, which leads you to the city, but that's it. There's no further details to explore. That being said, it gives me the viewer a better understanding of the concept of what this is supposed to be.
The second one made the mistake of having a stark black rat against a bright yellow light, which makes my eyes focus on the rat. My eyes don't go anywhere else. There's no movement, and the city is still lacking the contrast it needs for me to explore it.

No. 606099

yup, I have some experience in book publishing and this is what it’s like. Depending on the contract, you or your agent negotiate the rate, like the one Anoosha provided of the 88 greyscale interiors breaks down to 175 a drawing, then when the book sells you usually wait until the entirety of the book is paid off and then you make royalties afterwards. There was a long twitter thing a while back where lots of freelancers broke down their rates for books and stuff (for transparency during like people outing industries as not friendly to BIPOC creators), especially in GN publishing which were surprising but like showed that negotiating rates and having good agents helped. The most surprising one I remember was the creator & artist of Check Please, her contract for when the book got published by a big company was low up front, I think like 3k only for two books, but she got to keep her kickstarters for the self pubbed editions (which were over 300k each), kept all the licensing and merch rights, AND got a 50% profit share on royalties from the big pubbed books which went on to be an NYT bestseller (this is pretty rare, sometimes people don’t even get royalties let alone HALF)

Popular artists are popular because of certain subject matter they draw consistently. People see these popular artists and follow that formula, becoming popular themselves, and the cycle repeats.

Artists who don't follow such a formula don't get pushed by social media algorithms as much, so it feels like they don't exist when it's very likely that they just fly under the radar.

Additionally, nowadays with Procreate and iPad art, anyone can call themselves an artist, and social media is completely saturated with artists who want attention rather than artists who want to create and explore ideas.

I'm not sure if this is the right thread for this, but do you guys have any artist that you used to look up to when you were younger, but eventually ended up surpassing in terms of skill?

In my case I remember thinking Zayashuku (youtube animator from back in the day) was the best artist ever when I was around 10~11 years old. I actually saw stuff like pic related and thought it was peak professional artist material kek.
The same happened with other animators I liked, like ShadowLeggy or BlackWorufu. It's not just that they used to draw like shit back then (even when in the case of Leggy, she was in her 20s at the time), but they never progressed with their art and to this day they are more or less on the same level as back then. It's kind of sad honestly.

(God I hope I worded that more or less correctly, I'm not a native).

I know them, I used to follow them a while ago. They do a lot of animation memes and talk about their ocs, which seem to me kind of annoying and heavily inspired by popular characters. I really can't tell how they're so popular with that kind of animation though, it has no flow and is like a beginner's.

No. 607870

I know these images are social media memes and not really reflective on artistic development, but I don't really get how drawing the same image year to year is a great metric for gauging improvement. This person just drew the same character in whatever style they were feeling at the time. Wouldn't it make more sense to showcase multiple images showing "progress?" Multiple images showing that you can draw different subjects and contexts than an anime girl or something.

This shit just reminds me of the sameface meme, where it become more about drawing different looking features rather than differences in expression. Wow, you gave your character an "ethnic" nose and mouth but they're still making that dead ass kore stare anyway.

No. 607879

the point of the meme is showing how much ur style has changed and how much ur art has improved by drawing the same piece over again.

Usually an art style is just a comfort zone for any artist. Which is why a lot of big name artists can end up stagnating, because they realise the style that's easy for them continues to bring in the views and money (i.e. LavenderTown…) Experimentation forces artists to just step out of what they do mindlessly and makes them actually think about the process.

I really wish internet artists quit being so attached to artstyles. As an artist myself who had to learn fundamentals with a muscle anatomy book by my side, I can't help but feel upset when I see someone saying "I can't draw different faces/body types because of my style!

I actually checked up on her every now and then because I used to love her too and it's just weird seeing how she 'progressed'.

I'll try and find caps but interesting enough she's one of those black girls that reallllyyy hates the fact she's black. She's dated nothing but asian men (yes she's still a huge fuckin weeaboo) and has a good portion fuck and dump her. She got stranded in japan once since she for some reason decided to take a trip while her husband was in the middle of divorcing her and left her with no money. Didn't know how to get home so some random japanese guy ended up helping her and she told all of her followers to thank 'Daddy' for helping her get home.

These pose maker apps and websites are tragic at best but somehow have so much money to pour into marketing. They really annoy me because they encourage/normalize tracing, but at the same time, I’m comforted knowing that the idiots who trace these ugly ass models and call themselves artists will never be able to draw without using these apps/sites as a crutch.

i think tracing is only "ok" when you do it to develop muscle memory with certain things, but not post them afterwards

No. 609250

are you stupid, these are for graphics designers, not to be posted to some toddler's instagram account. you've never seen advertisements that use these drawings of people that are made of simple shapes and are just one or two colors?
also imagine using """normalize""" in this context, go back to twitter, this is an 18+ website.

from a practicing standpoint tracing doesn't do shit for you, so this isn't even correct. but plenty of professional fields (the before mentioned graphics designer, concept artist, comic artist, etc.) trace things to speed up their workflow or get things more precise.

No. 609257

NTA but tracing has benefits when its done as a study. Drawing directly based on your vision can fool you due to things looking different than what they are physically due to the optical illusion created, especially when learning foreshortening. Of course it has a ton of pitfalls and it shouldn't become your crutch to create art because tracing turns your drawings to flat images with no depth in them. There's a difference between using tracing as a study technique to dissect a part you don't understand and just drawing your finished pieces consistently on top of other images.

No. 609264

yeah, that's what i meant by saying tracing is ok if u don't post it lol (i'm 609214)

No. 609269

>to dissect a part you don't understand
i can go with this, but this is why i wish people were more specific about what kind of tracing they mean. tracing on the internet usually means "outlining an object with chicken scratches and calling it it a day", where as if you break down the object to the 3d shapes it's made of, you can actually learn something. in more "classical" art training you are supposed to copy things, landscapes, objects, other people's drawings, etc. i think this sort of practice is better than tracing in most contexts because this trains your eye to get better at observing, thus remember more things and take in new things easier too.

i think it's a stupid mentality to say artists' can't post their practice pieces, unless they are not clear about what they copied/traced from. of course, on the internet it's better to ask for permission of the other artist to avoid drama.

Graphic design =/= drawing characters. I've worked in the industry for years and the vast majority of the people I know / my own work has nothing to do with illustration, much less anything that would require this type of pose app, so I honestly have no fucking clue what you're on about.

the app is not for drawing characters…? and graphics design can include people too, your view of it seems to be very black and white if you think it's only logos and minimalist representation of objects. either you are lying about your industry experience, or barely looked outside of your own specific field of work in it.

Can be an useful tool for graphic designers as well ofc.

Photographs capture light, they can distort how things are as much as anything else. Just look up portraits done with different lenses. Tracing over a photo will fool you as much as your own vision. The whole point of practicing observation drawing is to overcome said optical illusions and to understand light and shapes better and to learn how to represent them.

just because it uses the word "illustration", why couldn't it be used for graphics design? i'm not sure anymore if you've seen the video showing how the app works, it's not even tracing over the lines, but using the little model of sorts and filling it out to get these simple characters. looks real handy in my opinion and at this point it kinda feels like you have a vague vendetta against it because you've been convinced by the internet that "tracing bad, and anything resembling it bad too". tools that make your job easier and aren't supposed to make you practice exist.
also this is way different from 3d model apps? those are for you to base the pose off of, you can't get something right by just tracing that since the models aren't perfect, they are just approximations, a guide.

No. 609729

I agree. It seems like a tool for people who are inexperienced in art and bored to fuck around with more than anything. If you go to the website there's a big emphasis on the brushes and textures showing it's more focused on coloring. Sure it could be used for Graphic Designers to make quick little designs for logos and what not but, I doubt any artist or anyone versed in online art culture that has any knowledge of other art programs like CSP, SAI, etc. is going to look at this and think "Ah yes, I'm going to use this for all my shit".

Now at the time she was super popular,so i,as a 12 year old,got absoloutely FLOODED by hate comments and death threats. Even Sutsuki(AmphyPop) sent me hate.

It's been over a year since I checked up on her, but nah. She just posted about her cats, fandom, and mentioning her boyfriend every now and then iirc!
It's weird how they all fell so hard except for maybe chi because she rebrands after crying for over a year.
Speaking of old artists (and might make a thread just for early 2000s artists/nostalgia) - I still remember how that artist Steph90(I think?) lost all of her friends /most of her popularity cause she did a shitty animation of her decapitating them (tinachan09 and Drechu) to a BOTDF song lolll

Same anon and yeah! Her exactly! Sorry it's been a while since I've heard about any of their names. She's since deleted it since she got so much backlash from it but that's pretty much why overnight Tinachan09 and Dreachu replaced her with Riley in their lil triangle.
Went through her videos trying to find it and she last uploaded a month ago - still looks rough and basic as when she first started. Still kinda amazed how many views they all got back in the day. Steph's first animation had over 240k views and that was over 8 years ago.

No. 609993

Well a part of my childhood just died with that knowledge lol. I remember I used to watch her and Oshaikeuchi everyday after school. It looks like Selph and Drea have largely faded into obscurity while Ocean is still thriving pretty well (Ocean still follows Drea on twitter and she's active on there so they're probably still friends.) Tina I can't find anything on though. Crazy to think that Selph did that and didn't think anything bad would happen as a result.

No. 610422


Truth is, it isn't. In the long run it will screw you over. I'm friends with an artist that makes tablets review constantly, and they reviewed Huion, Gaomon and XP-Pen.

The video went up and, because at the time I was wondering too if I should save up for the Cintiq or buy a cheaper alternative, I asked my friend if the tablet was really worth it. They told me it isn't, they also told me that these companies told her to remake those reviews because she was being honest saying they weren't that great, since they had X problems.

>TL;DR: save up for a cintiq.

No. 610481

Depends if you’re a beginner or not and how frequently do you see yourself drop projects. Like, if you’re a beginner/you may use digital once in a blue moon, use the XPPen, otherwise use cintiq(any other tablet with a built in screen is always good)

No. 610512

Does anyone else feel like we're slowly reaching a point where non-screen tablets are becoming kinda obsolete? For hobbyists, an ipad+procreate is legitimately a better option. For people who are serious about art, screen tablets are much more accessible than they were back in the day. A lot of cheap, decent options that will get the job done. But idk I could be wrong

I disagree. A screen can make things a lot easier, and some people legitimately can't draw well with a traditional tablet, no matter how hard they practice.

i mean you are not entirely wrong, but still, 2nd hand ipads are kinda pricey for a beginner.

(same anon from the huion driver issue!) Honestly I don't know. Both times I tried using a Huion, I made sure to uninstall any unnecessary drivers or leftover stuff from other tablets. The Huion would work fine most of the time, but it flat out refused to work when I opened my software (Paint Tool SAI).

I've had two Huion tablets so far, one was from a friend who had it lying around for a while after they bought an Intuos, and the other I bought myself because I wanted to break free from the whole Wacom monopoly.

i started with a wacom and it was… fine, but after that one bit the dust i got a huion and it was a gamechanger. it worked better for cheaper, easier to change settings, etc.
after that one died 3 years later (cant remember what happened) i bought the exact same one again. it worked perfectly for a year or two and then suddenly stopped working.
i'd like to think i have a higher-than-average competence with technology and i have absolutely no idea what the problem was. i tried every possible solution from uninstalling and reinstalling every possible driver to buying a new pen and cable. nothing worked. several people have had the exact same problem with no solutions. i don't want to get tinfoily but let's just say i wouldn't be surprised if there was some planned obsolecense going on.

i recently shilled out $400 for an xp-pen (artist 12) and it's really great so far. they have a ton of little screenless tablets in the $30-50 range too. it's my first time owning a screen tablet, so i don't have much to compare it to in that regard, though personally as a professional artist i'd rather be able to mirror my desktop screen (complete with files) to my tablet than buy an iPad and have it be it's own thing. i wish i made more use of the many buttons on the side, but i've been conditioned to use my left hand for keyboard shortcuts.

No. 610773

I feel like I just answered this same question.

I bought an XP Pen Artist 22E Pro after years of being a Wacom junkie, but I wanted to move up to a screen. There were a ton of Youtube reviews talking about how great it was, half the price of a 22 inch Cintiq, and Amazon was having a limited time deal on them so I caved. The result is okay, but it's got some issues.

The driver was a bitch, I downloaded the latest, but it took forever for the driver to see the hardware, then I had more problems when I tried to use it with the shortcut remote they also sell. Got it working eventually, but I'm still not sure why it suddenly worked. Massive parallax, usually disconnects then immediately reconnects after a couple of hours (knocking out the calibration), requiring me to restart my PC to get it to reset properly, sometimes freezes in the calibration screen. And I don't have anything to compare it to, but the screen doesn't feel great under the pen. It's really glossy and it feels like I'm scratching it all the time. I also have to use it with my lights off because the screen reflects the light over my desk so badly.

The pros are plenty, mind. Aside from the price, it's got 16 programable buttons, it is a nice looking monitor, and unlike Wacom, it comes with a great adjustable stand that I just can't fault. It also came with a free additional pen, 8 additional nibs, and a glove. The CP Pen pens themselves aren't as chunky as my old Wacom pens as well.

All in all, I do wish I'd saved longer and gotten a Cintiq, but I got a decent tablet for the budget I had at the time. If I could go back, I think I'd still be using my ancient Intuos 4 a bit longer while I saved for a Cintiq. But to each their own. I wish it more usual for physical stores to have these so you could try them and compare different ones.

Does anyone have experience with Gaomon? Are they any decent?

I need urgently a new tablet but the Intuos i was planning to buy is completely out of stock in my region, waiting for a restock would take too long since im already falling behind my work.

Im not a fan of Huion since they seem to not last very long, three years is too little time for tablet rotation.

So im eyeing a gaomon and tbh i get almost the double surface size than a wacom for the same price so it seems like a good deal, their tech seems to be almost the same as wacom since they are of those IP theft chinese grey market companies.

As someone who has used a nonscreen tablet for maybe 7 years, I cannot imagine using a screen tablet. It sounds so inconvenient for my way of working. I sketch traditionally here and there, like during my breaks at work, and all the problems I have with it would transfer over to a screen tablet, minus the lack of ctrl+z and lasso tool and such.
My two main problems are that my hand/pen blocks the image as I'm drawing, and I have to make sure I'm looking at it straight on which can be a hassle and make me hunch. These are things plenty of artists learn to live with, but I'm so spoiled with my computer screen facing me directly and not having a hand or pen in the way of the canvas while I'm making my strokes, I don't want to go back.
I'd like to try a screen tablet out sometime to see if it really is as good as people say, but for the price, its just too much of a gamble.

This is so obviously fucking traced, I cannot see how she can just brush it off as "lol it's a copy whatever", even someone who tries to replicate an image for a study, can hardly ever get the proportions as perfect as they are in here. Every tree is the exact same height and distant from each other as in the original image, same with the flowers, the bushes, stone steps and the rest aside from lilo and stitch, the only thing that really changes is the colors and the lighting but no way is this just a copy.

Also when someone who does create a copy of a certain original work they usually give a little transformative spin to it, like you see in most screenshot drawing challenges. It's just more fun to copy a scene but in your way instead of creating an exact replica, so I don't don't buy the results nor the motive.

The legs on it are hideous to me, especially in proportion to the rest of its body. There's a lot of nice looking Makeship plushies (and some other duds too) but that one just feels like wasted potential or mediocre designing.
I'm glad that pic related is getting a "rerun" of sorts, it's nice. The only thing off about it is the slightly stubby arms but otherwise it's a pretty great plush design.

CS are different from regular adopts bc rather than just the design/support alone you're buying "admission" into what are usually extremely petty and drama-prone "clubs" along with your doodle. Really dumb and not worth. I don't have much against regular adopts since it's more about supporting the artist rather than "owning" the work itself, but CS and their comms are pretty awful.

nta but CSP overwhelmed me so much on the first try that I uninstalled it after a few minutes lol. When I tried it again some months later I started by customizing the workspace, turning it to a light grey and putting things where I was kinda used to them. This might seem obvious, but I hadn't seen anyone mention it in conversations about switching from SAI to CSP and it cleared things up a lot for me and made it much easier to get used to the program as a whole!! There are also SAI-type workspaces to download on Clip Studio Assets if you don't want to change it yourself

Does anyone else get annoyed at artists openly bitching or being passive aggressive about having to work on their commissions, especially on their "professional" account? I seriously don't feel like buying work from someone who clearly hates doing it and I always frown at artists who cry about their long queue and constantly" ask for forgiveness" from their client because they're behind on their work. Bitch if you'd put down your Animal Crossing or whatever shit you're playing for a second and actually earned your pay you wouldn't have to constantly make these "I'm working on my ~mental health~ thank you for understanding!!!" posts. Don't take commissions if your client has to wait for like six months to get that one waist up piece they paid you for. Be glad someone is willing to pay for your art to begin with.

No. 611855

Yes!! The people who post on their public stories about how much they dread doing their commissions and are procrastinating… are you really gonna make people who are giving you money feel like they're making your life miserable because you have to work for it?

I've literally seen popular artists do all these "PLEASE DON'T PRESSURE ME IT CAUSES ME STRESS uwu" posts because someone was asking after the commission they paid upfront for three months ago. Then they open up "emergency commissions" for some bullshit e-begging reason just to scam people out of money and post photos of some expensive item they just bought to practice "self-care".

From the way she was talking about the accounts of others, I figured she was a legitimate professional artist who produces very high caliber work… but when I checked out her instagram I was disappointed.

At the risk of sounding like Bitter Betty, why do so many of these same-faced, e-thot, sausage lip artists, think that their initial success from drawing instathots, qualifies them as a speaking authority for being a successful artist overall?

It's not that it's boring. I guess it's just frustration that like most artist who jump on the trend, she got an easy ride to fame solely from that, and nothing else. She criticizes some younger artists in the videos, for not having a "high enough art skill" for her to even critique, when her own skills aren't that high either. She's good, but not so good that she can talk about them that way.
It just feels hypocritical.

Nah you are definitely not bitter. Getting follows on instagram/twitter/etc is a game, following the algorithm of that particular site, having the right style, and kissing ass of specific people. It doesn't necessarily mean you have quality art or that your style is appealing outside social media

My advice is to worry less on getting a following for the sake of it and more on working on your own artistic voice. What do you want to tell people as an artist, stick to that, be consistent in your message, and hone your skills in your style enough to get your message across. And your message doesn't have to be deep, you can get really good at drawing dogs wearing backpacks bc that's what you want to fucking draw. Cool awesome. You need a vision to start. Like writing a novel. Normies gravitate towards consistency over technical skill, consistency in your artistic voice is so important.

A while back, this was posted pretty much detailing the ordeal. Long story short:

>woman took a bunch of images she found on google. Had her daughter trace them to use on merch. Backpedaled hard when confronted and became aggressive when told to stop using it.

NTAYRT but a lot of people just know how to draw the same thing, not because they researched the algorithm or marketing strategies, just because it's what they know and like to draw. You are assuming she deliberately chose to draw that to appeal to people, but honestly the higher probability is that she likes to draw girls with the same face and that fits into the trend atm. I don't recommend it, but if you waste your time watching a video of hers you can see her tips are super vague. All the discussion and critiques about the algorithm is how people don't fully understand it and how hard is to make it work in favor to you.

They might have gotten people to follow them from their other social media accounts

No. 612765


Probably they may delete the posts that have fewer likes, so that their account will only feature their most popular posts.

I've seen some artists do that on IG a few times before. Either that or they could be simply redirecting followers from other social media they might have such as a Twitter.

No. 612767

This is a little confusing to be honest. I thought they were going to do a dance competition to dance against each other, but I guess they're just in the castle dancing? Why are they dancing with each other? Why did they decide to dance if it wasn't a competition and there will be no winner?
I must've missed something.

No. 612776

I decided to look through the previous videos and this is a series. the two characters are in kind of a battle for control of the castle. the dancing is for added flair to fit the music.

No. 612788

I know they're battling for control, and I know it's just animating dancing for the sake of flair.
But in terms of the story and the characters, it doesn't really make any sense. There are a lot of other ways to have the characters dance to the music with just as much flair and be just as interesting. If you just want to animate something fun, that's fine, but if it doesn't really match the other parts of the series you've already made, maybe try a different idea?

And she's not wrong, that's how successful art accounts work there and since she managed to do it she can consider herself an authority on that.

The hair looks like sausages.

Also like >>614846 said, this is actually a huge reason behind this “sjw style.” Years back on Tumblr there was a shift from everyone drawing anime-esque art to getting sick of it and declaring that the anime style made you creatively bankrupt. Some artists switched to learning semirealism, copying the Disney style, western superhero comic style, or actually coming up with a decent style of their own. But those who weren’t talented enough jumped on the SU “calarts” style because it looked so easy.

Ofc this doesn’t apply to all of these artists, I think the younger ones who weren’t around for that are just following trends, but it’s something I noticed from following the Tumblr art scene.

i find it annoying too, but i think it's mostly twitter's fault, especially with the slamming reaction gifs into the media category. it would be a great improvement to have an all media and a highlighted media tab for example, so people can engage with posts and talk about their non art interests while still having their art in a separate section.

No. 615063

They used to have a "moments" section that you could pin tweets to and acted like a more clunky version of instagram stories, but they got rid of it long ago for some reason. Wish they'd bring it back or as you said a separate more optimized tab. However twitter hates anything "useful" to their app/site.

moments were always complete dog shit, really hidden and you needed to link them everywhere, and if you wanted to compile art after a few posts they would only let you put more posts in there on desktop for some reason when desktop twitter went to shit.

She's been going on for ages about how her hands are fucked up from drawing too much, and it made sense some time ago when she used to put out a lot more content. But now she doesn't draw that quickly anymore, I believe she posts like one thing a month and it's in a very simplified style compared to the full pieces she used to do. Even her new artbook contains very old art, and as far as I know she's not involved in any major projects. I don't want to sound like an asshole, but this sounds like her trying to get pity points by blaming her working hard on art while it may even be an unrelated issue. She's so into victimizing herself afterall.

No. 616100

yeah, that's very asshole-y lmao. it's the norm (almost) for artists that post/used to post a lot of detailed (or not) artwork constantly to have this kind of problems. they come from overworking urself with no breaks after all.

No. 616104

1. Not posting doesn't mean she's not creating art.
2. Even if she's not drawing as much, don't you think it might be because she's having issues with her hands? You know, those things you need to be able to draw?

Yea this is petty, first of all some injuries never truly heal or if they do, they usually get recurring injuries a lot easier than those without any problems. Also she does some pretty detailed works, so even without any injuries her works can take quite some time to produce along with a lot of the side projects she seems to take on. I dunno how skilled artist there are in here but a lot of people often seem like they've never even touched a pen judging by some of the dumb takes. People should understand at this point that art isn't just shat out even by those who do it fulltime, not every artist can be sakimichan.

Op's pic makes me depressed. The 2016 one is such a cute, well-put together style, and 2020 is just so ugly and poorly drawn. I also feel like the 2020 one is the same art style I see a lot on instagram? If there was a generic Instagram art style, it would be that. I hate it.

No. 616183

Agreed. I don’t know why but when I was younger there were a lot of times I saw artists complaining about health issues and I thought “oh that will never happen to me!” Cue me getting older and now suffering from a lot of neck/shoulder pain and eye strain.
The most frustrating one is there’s a raw area on my finger now from where I keep pressing my pen into my hand. It hurts so much sometimes that even a bandaid cover doesn’t help.

So apparently Noelle Stevenson (director of She-Ra) is facing cancellation now? Given she was considered for ages to be that "wholesome cinnamon bun lesbian creator that can do no wrong", and she has just created the - possibly - most inclusive mainstream children show, that's pretty surprising. But at the same time, her audience is the crowd that loves to cancel people so probably it was the matter of time.

She has to mostly apologize to what the host said, not her herself, and apparently people are the most offended about the fact she (or the crew) said that Bow brother could be called Sow which apparently is a direct reference to slavery (???). What I've seen mentioned a lot is that she said the evil d-slur, which, as turns out, was her saying the name of someone else's podcast "Desperate House Dykes", after the host was plugging it.

No. 616540

I think it’s more that the white privilege of her and the other non-black people on the show finally slipped out since it just showed they were super ignorant in that they didn’t even think about the implications of what an all black field working farmer family can correlate to, especially on a show that had no black writers. Like since it just happened, this is like the start of HER recognizing her own privilege as a white person so of course she HOPEFULLY changes and grows (but iirc when she did comics she also ran into a lot of weird drama with that that I barely remember). But also, she’s a white darling in media too so this will all blow over in like a week and she still has a job somewhere, like it happens with all white people called out.

Tho also the fact that the man who said the stuff people were mainly offended by wasn’t blamed as harshly as her, like it’s another double standard in that being out as a marginalized creator means, at least on twitter, you have to be some weird paragon of your marginalization.(global rule 7)

If I understand it right it's a price of a course, materials and one-on-one mentorship, right? That would make the price somewhat fair, and even though definitely wont get a complete beginner to a pro level as in - getting a job in the industry - I believe if someone actually sticks to it and practices as advised, after a year they would be on a level that would allow them to make some money as a freelance artist. So I guess it's not so bad?

Something I don't like about courses of any kind is the display of student's work, because it often implies that yes, they learnt all of this at our course! And from my experience these students are always already developed artists who just took given course to polish some skills or refresh the basics they already understand.

No. 616594

Overly sensitive people like this congregate around things that are wholesome, diverse, and "aesthetic." That basically rules out everything except children's cartoons. These people are also stunted in terms of maturity, which is another reason why they gravitate towards children's media. The problem is, they hold the staff on the shows to the same absurd standard they hold the shows themselves to, which is unrealistic. The shows are "wholesome" because they're for children, but kids shouldn't be browsing the creators' Twitter feeds. Cartoons are regulated and focus-grouped, but ordinary adults private lives obviously aren't.

These crazies can't separate fiction from reality. They think that whenever an artist or writer depicts something, they must personally endorse it 100%. They also think that they can't like a piece of fiction if the creator disagrees with them in any capacity or does something "problematic." As if artists are politicians or something. It's ridiculous.

Okay samefagging because I actually went to see what this was about. Found the imgur album with all the screencaps about the messages he sent: https://imgur.com/a/hjt9G4a

Apparently he had been doing this every day for two weeks, completely unprovoked like the message logs show. He sounds unhinged as fuck and I don't know if he's been on a drug bender or just having a severe psychotic episode that lasted for 14 days or something but this is some weird fucking shit. He's spouting straight out misogynistic and homophobic shit in her face and literally bragging about him being "cis, straight and in a happy relationship" to a lesbian artist.

For those who weren't following the drama last year, the wife/girlfriend of one of the (female) creators of a game called Heartbeat tweeted about being fed up with lesbians being coerced into sex by trans women and naturally got the unholy rage of the troon loons laid upon her. I'm guessing this harassment was ignited by that because he keeps bringing up how trans people are "so much more talented" and interesting than she is and how she's secretly lusting after them and you know the rest. I just have no idea why he decided NOW to start harassing her like this. Maybe he's just clinically insane but jesus christ these messages are fucking disturbing.

There are some things that are quite a coincidence like the structure of the book (unconventional instruments/ unconventional tools) but then again, as I said, it's in the nature of those books teaching basic shit that also the structure is similiar. Where else should Parker have put "unconventional tools"? At the end of the book? Wouldn't make sense teaching wise. Wouldn't also make sense to leave this out.

Did you even watch the full video? When creating an instructional book for a niche medium overlap in instruction is expected to happen but, when you have certain instructions that are exclusive to your own artstyle/art process it's hard to justify that being copied. Jake not only just straight up used the same format but, the same exact sequence of instructions. There's also the fact that Alphonso's book was released 5 years ago. Unless you can show a Pen and Ink book that almost identical to Alphonso's showing that the niche truly is so small and finite that overlap is inevitable, then he did plagiarize it. Even looking at a sample of Beginning: Pen and Ink by Desarae Lee which was published in 2019, her book looks completly different from Alphonso's.

Half of it, then I had other stuff to do.

Thing is, I'm note sure if you can copyright structure as in structure = concept/ idea. Jake did his own drawings and his own texts (I assume) as far as I could tell by the video. Where I live, you can't copyright ideas or concepts, only specific wordings or pictures can be. Don't know if there's a difference in the USA. Also the book was published by a publisher, so we don't know how much say Parker had in creating the book. Can be that the publisher wanted to do a book with Parker, some intern then ripped the concept off of this other book and Parker only did the drawings and said yes to the rest.

If this guy thinks he has enough proof for copyright violations, why does he do this video? Why does he go after Parker, instead of the publisher? If it would be me, I would go straight to a lawyer and let them handle it to get me my compensation for this violation. I think he's doing the video bc it's not enough proof and/ or he's to pissed to think straight for a second.

Some of the graphics he showed like the value scale were pretty much Alphonso's drawings but just flipped and the wording is eerily similar to Alphonso's especially in the titles. As for the publisher or someone else that might have copied without Jake's say; It's highly unlikely considering Jake would have had to have drawn all the images for their respective category and page. Jake's also the only person credited in the book and the back synopsis makes it seem like it was completely made by him. Also near the end of the video Alphonso makes note that Jake has even made posts about Alphonso's Pen and Ink book before, so he has knowledge of the book. As for him making a video instead of just going in head first with a lawyer; Jake trademarked the word Inktober and already has the book available for preorder so I'm not sure what could be done at this point if anything. He definitely has enough proof as shown in his video and honestly if someone was trying to make money off of something I spent 3 years working on to self publish and they were a huge name I would 100% call them out on it publicly as well. We don't know if Alphonso has already taken legal action as he didn't specify but, the whole thing is just shitty. Jake is already shown to be a greedy ass with the whole trademark and C&D fiasco last year and this is just him rearing his ugly head again.

Huh, you really don't understand how human bodies work, do you? (There's a reason unisex clothing tends to be lots of baggy stuff.)

Doesn't matter much if parker had a lot or no say in the book, he signed his name as the author so he is an accomplice. It's not about copyrighting, it's about plagiarism as the title says.

Anyway,my only critique to alphonso was that he should have waited to actually see the finished and published book before doing this. Not only he would be able to point out whatever was stolen in a better way, but he would have known for sure if he didn't credit him at any point.

>His name is on the cover so he did everything himself.

You know ghostwriters exist.
Also, what I forgot yesterday. Alphonso should go to his own publisher and inform them about this. That‘s why you have a publisher — they usually have more ressources to go after such things.

I don‘t like Alphonso’s video bc he‘s basing his accusations on an unfinished product. There‘s no real proof. The preview could be pulled and the final published book could look different. So in the end, doesn‘t matter how morally right Alphonso is, when the final product looks different he‘s the dumb one.

Alphonso can be as much angry as he wants, I‘m just tired of all these people fighting publicly. How about talking face to face before calling for pitchforks.

And art thieves/people who plagiarize need to be called out publicly, especially when your as influential as and have a big following as much as Jake has. This isn't the early 2000's where people could just fiend naivety and not knowing.

Jake Parker keeps coming up with the shittiest, most tone-deaf ways to stay relevant. He had 1 kind of OK idea that the art community enjoyed but decided he wasn't getting enough money or attention on his mediocre art.

everyone has their own way of approaching ink art, and by the looks of it, the style that's in his book, doesn't match how he draws at all. Unfortunately, popular artists who lift from smaller artists and claim it as their own is all too common. And smaller artists seldom get any recourse because they often get dismissed for it. I think I can belive Alphonso here.

Every year around this time we have to hear about how he decided to shit on the art community. Inktober is a played out popularity contest and a money grab anyway. There are better ways to improve your art and spend your time.

It will be an interesting month leading up to the book release and October, I'll say that much… Or maybe nothing'll happen at all.

Yeah no, I call bullshit. This is probably why Alphonso didn't bother to privately contact him in the first place because he would have just replied "but I didn't copy you tho." Everyone knows there will be crossover with the books because they're instructing for the same thing but, when your book has another artist's personal process in your own book? I call bull.

No. 618464

I'm not sure how to word it but how do I try taking apart my own art style to analyze it?

I think the basic problem is that I feel at a wall because I can't understand how to break out of muscle memories from when I was younger and learning to draw by myself. I can make convincing basic images but something always seems off to me. I want to learn to pick out my bad habits so I may improve on them in a way that sticks with me. It's weird to know you have a bad habit but can't figure out what it is exactly. I think I maybe just don't have the knowledge yet since I only starting trying to get serious about drawing in the past year or so.

I tried to ask for help on my regular websites but I'm not known on social media and don't have many peers for art critique so I tried here instead. Maybe there's a place better for asking something like this? I appreciate any direction!

No. 618472

My advice would be to break down your art by it's components. Factors like line (thickness, colour, clean/messy), colours, the proportions you use, the ranges of values you use, the underlying structure of your art. Picking it apart piece by piece can help you realise what's the same across what you make, and from there you can choose to differentiate it.

Part of it is just trying to find common features across your art, like if you mostly draw characters, do you usually draw them ¾? Front facing? Do you ever draw them from below or above, or only straight on?

If you look at the principles of design or elements of art, you can eventually home your eye to be more critical of your own art. In the time being, just try learning more, even about art skills that may seem boring. If you haven't tried perspective or composition, find resources on those. The more well rounded your abilities are, the more you improve overall as well as in specific areas. Draw things you're uncomfortable with drawing. Objects, landscapes, animals, people. Skills build upon each other.

You could post some of your art in the Rate My Art /m/ thread, asking for feedback. There are other sites like some art subreddits (r/learntodraw) that may help, but a lot of the time their feedback tends to be somewhat hugbox-y.

No. 618494

Not exactly what you're asking for, but if I were you, I'd just try to get out of my comfort zones.
Firstly, how does your usual workflow look? Do you sketch out the whole body via stick figures / gesture lines, and then refine, or do you start with the left eye and work from there with minimal guidelines? Whatever you do, find a different way to start your piece. Mix up all your steps into random parts of the process where possible. This may take some research, don't be afraid to read other people's techniques and approaches. Watch a large variety of artists speedpaints (unironically)
Second is draw things you're not used to. Do you draw pretty girl busts? Draw a robot, draw your cat, draw the bowl of fruit sitting on your table that you don't grab from as often as you should. If you find yourself stagnating with the style you draw your usual subjects in, drawing these other things might help you find different ways to portray shapes and ideas. It might not be as fun or as comfortable but its good for you, like medicine.

A lot of drawing is just getting a trained enough eye, which it sounds like you're developing. Its a long process of trying to view things critically and openly pretty much constantly in your day to day life.

Based Nikotine.

Nah, Mack Kenny is a talentless animator, with ugly as fuck art, who's only empowered and emboldened by having a famous dad. He wasn't even fighting about troon politics, he was just harassing her. I hope he gets blacklisted. Men who harass women because they have different politics never do it only because of politics. He'd probably harass any other woman he doesn't like as well.

Can we just stop bringing up bullshit relating to trannies on here. Everyone here is an edgy tard hiding behind anonymity. Nikoteenie is a baiting dumbass obsessed with people that don't impact their life in anyway aside from being annoying online and thriving on the negative feedback they get. Mack is a textbook warrior keyboard that also went after someone for problems that don't involved him and that should have just ignored and blocked Niko in the first place. Everyone involved in this is a dumbfuck. Mack honestly should be blacklisted from any studio for sending those stupid messages. Both are retarded on opposites sides of the spectrum.

No. 619616

Of course Mack is the bigger idiot for dming when Niko had never interacted with him directly but, Niko is just an edge baiting tard constantly spewing shit that has nothing to really do with them in the first place. You'd think a Tranny fucked their mom and shit on their bed when they were 14 for them to constantly be up in arms about anything trans related. People should just roll their eyes, block, and move on. Niko isn't any different from any other 4chan idiot, they just made a pokemon clone that coomers will eat up. Both are dumbasses in their own right.

So now Lucawaifu got her twitter account suspended? Over what? Calling a industry hack out for harassment? What a fucking joke.

Look, so many cringy artists with cowish tendencies just happen to be trannies and they make it a huge part of their identities. It's pretty hard to not bring up troonery when they have their profiles plastered with trans flags and identity politics and cause drama over it like this asshole harassing another artist for 14 fucking days straight insulting her work, her skill, her appearance and at the same time being so fucking smug about it that he used his own professional twitter account for it. Gender delusions are just as cow-like behavior as any other delusions, if they were otherkin/racefakers or something they'd be called out for being crazy bitches just the same and so would anyone defending their fantasies. They're not exempted from being made fun of.

This, people saying "they're both idiots!!!" when Nikotine barely even replied to this tard is baffling. Even if you think muh transgenderism is real she still did absolutely nothing to invite Mack's spergery over. And how did it drag "for too long"? Her wife called the guy out, the guy locked his account, complete silence, he then posts a half-assed nonpology two days later and faces absolutely no consequences for being an unprofessional, sexist piece of shit. That's it. But yeah go back to calling someone out for tracing because they drew the same red girl as another instagram artist or charged money for commissions if that's a drama more engaging.

No. 619696

I find the new style very appealing and think it's an improvement overall, I like the clean lines and clear shapes a lot and think it's suited for comics or animation. I agree though that the previous vid had much more dynamic poses. My main gripe looking at the new line-up is that she (?? - sounds like a T voice) tends to draw female hips/lower bodies on male characters and it looks weird. It's particularly visible in the yellow main character and the twins in purple but applies to the pale blue char as well. I mean I guess it could be a "trans characters everywhere!" kind of thing but it looks more like unconscious bias to me.

No. 619699

Niko not responding to Mack doesn't exempt them from being an equally dumb shit. Mack shouldn't have sent those messages at all and the fact that it was done over 14 days is just really fucking sad to say the least. He should have been called out over it and he needs this to follow him around to whatever company he tries to pitch generic sjw cartoon #400 to. Though I have to laugh at the fact that Niko is one of those people that loves to call people snowflakes and sensitive and shit and yet, is out making multiple tweets a week about shit that doesn't apply to them. Mack is a sperging simp for shit that doesn't apply to him and a grown adult that felt the need to basically harass someone over the course of 14 days that he'll more than likely never meet irl and really doesn't impact him in anyway over hurting his fee-fees. Niko is a baiting 4chan level RacistUncle legbeard that seems way too invested in trannie shit to not make you question why the fuck does she care so much. Both aren't exempt from being made fun of like you said. Both dumbasses in their own right.

No. 619700

Haha, nice number.

In all seriousness though, I'm glad that I wasn't the only one who noticed that. Something about the main character in particular is that they have such an overtly feminine figure that I just cannot see how they would register as 'boy' unless they're trans–which said artist hasn't made it known? The only one that I can see passing for a male is definitely the fire-dude, but it's probably because his jaw and the way his chest is shaped as opposed to the hips balance themselves out to be more male.

It bothered me a lot.

No. 619714

She never attacked anyone personally, she's addressing a wider issue on a societal level and comparing her to Racist Uncle is a big leap in logic. While Nikotine's unnecessarily aggressive in her tranny takes she still doesn't target people or send them angry messages unlike the ultimate pickme RU who lives off of her irate personal vendettas and triggering the libz to keep her /pol/tard simps orbiting her. I don't understand how Nikotine can be called an "equally dumb shit" when she did literally nothing to Mack or his friends and it was her wife who made the initial callout tweet on her behalf to begin with. And I absolutely fail to see how posting edgy opinions on your personal Twitter account equates to "sending an artist harassing, aggressive messages for two weeks".

No. 619723

Yeah I'm not exactly comparing the situation of the harassment to Niko's takes on trannies that make it seem like she has some weird grudge, I'm just saying both are dumbasses in their own right. I'm personally not trans, don't give a shit about Mack's work, and have and never plan on playing Heartbeat so looking in at this just makes me go "Huh, you're both retarded". I have to laugh at the fact that Mack was probably so mad at Niko that thought that his dms might be exposed completely missed his better judgment and now he has to look like the bigger idiot in comparison. Way to completely go against the point you were trying to make of showing how uber evul Niko is to be so detrimental to trans lives by pretty much harassing her non stop for 14 days straight.

No. 619735

Haha, I'm also glad I'm not the only one bothered by it. It's kinda sad tbh because she's drawing a picture of what could easily be a fun mostly female cast and then turns around and says no, actually it's 1 1/2 women to 5 1/2 men, what about the male audience!

No. 619780

That's exactly what happened. Her girlfriend was involved in a game called Heartbeat she was a famed artist for and TRAs started attacking her AND her girlfriend AND the game the girlfriend was developing by review bombing and telling people not to buy it because reeee evil terf needs to die. This was triggered by a twitter thread she posted after she apparently got enough of transbians pressuring her girlfriend to suck girldick because the game was so popular with troons due to the colourful art style and all-female (?) cast.

No. 619792

And now she just posts a bunch of transpohbic shit all day, everyday in retaliation. What an anime villain origin story that is. Niko seems just like a bitter dyke that's mad trannies are probably getting more poon than her (thinking they're just straight men that are fetishizing lesbians her words not mine lol). Turns out she's not even a dev for heartbeat, She's just a fanartist and the gf of the actual dev and artist who hasn't even been active on twitter since the whole shit blew up. The people that review bombed it in the first place are grade A idiots because Niko really doesn't have anything to do with the game. Fucking hilarious that the game itself became popular with trannies and that's what probably spurred all of it.

No. 619983

Yeah, I agree. In the old video, each character's bodily and facial expression was somewhat unique. It's more dynamic due to things like foreshortening. There aren't white borders around the old characters, so they look more together. It just feels like it has more movement.
In the new one, you lose that sense of energy and expression. The poses are more similar to each other, and the expressions are less exaggerated. Everything is more spaced out and clean. Before, they looked like a group doing an action shot. Now they just look like characters individually drawn and placed next to each other.

No. 620044

I actually think this is an improvement? So much of the """good""" art has a lot of overrendering and dead faces that don't do much beyond try to be "pretty" and not communicate with the audience via the character. Her 2018 style looks like a cute face w/a body added on and maybe playing to that crowd (and failing).

On the other hand, her 2020 style actually has body language going on. The character looks coy, shoulders tensed, and her face looks as if she's just received a compliment and the reality of what's going on is settling in (the crown looks like it's just materialized on her head, reflecting her reaction). The shadows on her shoulders even remind me of the extent of her blushing vs just random red spot stylization.

When artists are aiming for illustration, storytelling through body language is important. I don't see how she downgraded. It looks like the work of someone who's finding their place.

Baylee has a copy of Jake's book. Peter Han was lukewarm about the controversy too, maybe he was sent a copy as well. If Jake credited Alphonso in the bibliography that would change everything. Jake is still a spineless jellyfish for not asking Alphonso for permission to cite his techniques, but it would not be a copyright/theft issue now. It weakens Alphonso's accusation of Jake stealing, when Jake has given credit in the book itself. I still support Alphonso over Jake, but it's harder for a legal case to be made here

Anyway it’s obviously gross that he drew so many pictures in a row showing this vampire and kid, if the ship is really about her as an adult then stop drawing 20 flashbacks to him hugging and consoling her and tucking her into bed as a father figure to a small child.

This reminds me of those drawings that used to be on my Instagram explore of witches finding and raising little boys but the artist ships them together when he grows up. Fucking weird. I guess there’s an audience for that but how can someone not see it as creepy? Do they just not care or do they actually think it’s sweet?

I don’t usually mind age gaps that are ten years or less, maybe fifteen if the characters are both much older, but an adult raising a child and then falling in love with the child when they grow up? Yeah, that’s creepy.

Honestly this, fiction is fiction for a reason. Fiction was always meant for you to safely explore ideas and concepts outside of the norm and live out whatever fantasies you might have guilt free. I don't even mean the obviously bad stuff like pedophilia or murder but more like just things that are fine in fiction that you wouldn't want irl (looking at you YA romance novels with "healthy" relationships). This to me is really just a cute fluffy story and I don't really see the grooming aspect because he's ageless. I think the whole point of this is the whole "growing up to being his equal" kind of thing, where at first the guy doesn't see you as romantic partner (because you're a child, duh) but then you become adult and "viable". I would say these relationships to me are almost metaphorical even, not of real life pedophilia or grooming but instead when there's 2 people that would be compatible as a couple but are for some reason in unequal standing (idol/fan, boss/underling, social/anxious) and can only become that couple when the other person "steps up" and rises to the equal standing.

As someone who writes and reads fiction, I find that a lot of people tend to take things too literally when reading a piece of material, fantasy is often a tool to strip down complex ideas into simple concepts so that they can be safely explored and understood by whomever, where a complex idea such as 2 people being of unequal standing is broken down into a simple concept of "adult and child".

This. People take everything at face value and see "he's falling in love with the girl he raised, THATS GROOMING U PEDO!!!" without taking into account the nuance and context behind it. Even the most "wholesome" ideas can be problematic in real life and I hate to see this constant discourse about what gets a pass in fiction and what doesn't because they're not real and IRL dynamics are way more complex than any fiction can portray. This setting in particular is obviously supposed to be seen as a metaphorical growth story and not some child grooming advertisement.

No. 621201

Yep exactly, I think it's kinda given away by the fact that these stories always portray a mortal (usually) girl with immortal or close to it (usually) guy but never when they both age, if it was a grooming story then why make the distinction? People really should start studying some meta reading, it's a pretty handy skill to have.

No. 621205

>when the other person "steps up" and rises to the equal standing.
I don't really see any "stepping up" though. Maybe it's just from the edits I've seen, but she seems just as childish an immature as she was when she was a kid, only with kissing and bed sharing. Doesn't help that the artist constantly compares their relationship as a child, to their relationship now as an adult. It's just weird.
I can see why it comes off as "groomish", although I don't care either way.

No. 621208

Well the "stepping up" can be either physical or mental, sometimes stepping up means getting an equal position to someone but sometimes it means letting go of the feeling of inferiority. Kawacy's characters are probably more about the latter, besides stepping up does not necessarily mean changing who you are, it just means letting go of certain things holding you down.

No. 621209

What counts as being "childish and immature" exactly? Sucking on a pacifier? Playing with building blocks?

No. 621211

Idk, when a bunch of his comics about them seem to hinge on comparing when she was a little girl vs now, it’s kind of creepy. If it’s about stepping up and being on equal footing, why use age specifically as their dividing factor? The dude is literally a vampire so it could just be about her becoming a vampire or whatever from human, but clearly her being a child is key to their dynamic and their romance.

Even if you say it’s fiction, whatever, it’s the same story that’s been told a hundred times so what’s the point of telling it again? You would think Kawacy might be able to inject it with some kind of creativity.

No. 621212

I'm kind of ambivalent about this. The likely target audience for this (ie anybody who reads manga, watches anime - especially shoujo content - or likes things like Twilight or Interview With the Vampire) can't really talk. I don't know why so many people in fandom want to play hypocritical fandom police these days.
I like the metaphorical interpretation posted in this thread. Plus, the dynamic we see here isn't really the same as with humans. As an immortal vampire, he mentally/physically stays a young adult, the exact same as the day he took her in. His development will stay the same, only changing as needed by his environment. She's the only one between them that can actually grow automatically, both mentally and physically. That means she can eventually meet his level (and remember, he's suspended in this stage), and be able to have feelings for him, and once he recognizes that she's no longer just the little kid he's been babysitting all this time, he can return them.
A better parallel to grooming would probably be a decrepit vampire who seeks out human children (or even just vulnerable humans in general) to raise and make a "harem" with, and/or "losing" them when they're no longer naive and innocent.
On the other hand, it seems like she always sees him as her superior. I guess it's kind of creepy in that sense. Don't really know what to think.

No. 621213

No wonder why most western artists are so boring and bland, everything is problematic. Grow up please, it's a goddam cartoon.

No. 621214

Hmm, maybe. I guess overall it reminds me of a manga I use to read, Bunny Drop. The main character adopts and raises a child, only for the story to end with the two of them getting together at the end.
Technically the main character didn't raise her with the intention of grooming her into his eventual bride, but most of the story was about him raising her as his daughter. So for it to end with them getting together, it's jarring to say the least.
I guess with these kinds of things, you go into this knowing your going to be hitting a very specific target of people who like that sort of thing as well as a target of people who'll be put off, me personally it feels like mixing water and oil. Wholesome adoptive story that eventually turns into a love story, just doesn't jive well with me.

Jesus this "IDK MAN IT'S P CREEPY YALL SHE USED TO BE A MINOR U KNOW.." discourse is so fucking retarded. I can promise you that nobody who reads this will think "oh my god I've been so blind, of course grooming young children is okay!".

This. The continuous content policing is a surefire way to kill all creativity because you can't explore ideas and settings anymore, the goalposts are moved so fast and so randomly that even enemies to lovers is considered a dynamic promoting abuse now. Even in this case when they fall in love they're vaguely the same age as the vampire boy doesn't age himself as she grows older, it's not like it's a 40-something guy abusing his stepdaughter or something. I think it sounds pretty cute and interesting myself exactly due to the growth story aspect.

Literally she made a better recreation of the fucking meme face than the original. At one point she's says she's better at oil even. Which made me internally scream admittedly.

She can't blend oil for crap. I'm sure everyone remembers that oil painting she did and tried to touch up in a later episode.

I don't care about Kwacy's vampire couple thing, because it's bland. Just like nearly all other themes in his pieces.

Stop. Black people have been farming in Africa before slavery, and many still do. The entire world is not just about American history.

Twitter values activity over almost anything, follower engagement is just a huge plus. If your account is super active, regardless of the posts, then you'll grow faster.

Always remains a mother son relationship and never gets romantic and ends with the son dying and she still calls herself "Mama" at the end.

Hot take: the people trying to cancel LupisVulpes are bigger cows than her. I read most of the doc against her and a lot of it is either hard to swallow pills for tranny-supporters, "friends" airing out dirty laundry for the sake of attention, or complete nothing burgers.

I honestly gave up after I saw the section where she had previously made "tribal" sparkledogs with feathers, and what I assume is one of the doc authors asked some rando two-spirit ANTIFA supporter if it was "racist" and ofc he said yes. Which is now "evidence" that she is a culturally appropriating racist. lol

Her twitter mentions are full of the exact type of immaturity I'd expect from furshitters, as shown in pic.

Here's the callout doc if you care to read through all of it, maybe I'm missing the actual tea but it just seems really retarded and full of vendetta and asshurt over someone's personal/religious views: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1xTIqQS4knsxu2_e3NZdVioLpxkRcV8t9MmdSPMpECyA/mobilebasic

Lo and behold.

The headshot "false advertising" is also a joke. If you do not specify a pose (which yes, headshots have poses,) then artists can reuse their own bases if they want and charge whatever they feel is appropriate. It is up to the customer to decide if they price the artist charges is what they want to spend for the commission, and to communicate what character/pose they would like drawn.

Also I can't stop laughing at

How does anyone excuse this?????
Holy fuck this is cancer on my eyes. She most definitely traced the heads, everything else was from her own lack of skill I'm sure.

You sound surprised that the same people who unironically say
have no standards for art.

It's just the level at which they'll turn a blind eye that astounds me. I shouldn't be surprised but holy hell that image is atrocious and is even worse imo than the police officer woman she drew once, somehow.

There's a lot that supports the Twitter has no artistic taste theory but I'd need to post non-cows to fully show you that.

Excuse me while I go throw my years of art practice and knowledge into the garbage and light it on fire.

McDonald's is probably hiring anyway.

Does anyone know what happen to Cpieng? I heard she went through online harrassment in the past.

Part of me wants to believe this is bad on purpose, I just can't comprehend how someone with functioning eyes can fuck up human anatomy so bad. Aside from the traced face they look like monsters, and I think she even copy-pasted the bodies.

The trannies coming after her are ridiculous, but my god her preachy "apology video" that's basically a sermon… she should have just said that she didn't want to draw certain things and shut them up.

Is anyone even going to do Inktober this year, considering the drama with its creator and even devianart cancelling it? I feel like people will forget about the drama as soon as october hits.

No. 622149

I think people are going to use the drawtober tag instead. I'm sure Jake will still have some supporters but maybe the activity in the tag will lessen

No. 622360


From what I've seen most people are still gonna do Inktober anyway, just not use the official prompt list

That "unprofessionalism" section is weak. She did not have a refund policy listed for her animation comms. To most that means by default "no refunds", and yet she replied back to one customer trying to compromise for a refund since she used the payment to try to fix her car.

Ironically, the other imgur screenshots from the one spamming her for an immediate refund confirm that she was having car trouble prior to all this.

These customers would absolutely deserve to be blacklisted for their exploitive bullshit imo. Complete disregard for any of the work she may have already done, and all bc they are "hurt" by her opinions lmao. Not at all surprised the second one is literally using daddy's credit card.
