Yes, his updating pace is still atrociously slow. And yes, the main character was based on some girl he was simping on. 8 years of working on it and only 100 pages finished in total. He's getting over 4k a month on Patreon for this too and the panel layouts are still literally unreadable. I guess he also gave up his "male feminist" image because all his female characters look like they're posing for fashion magazines in every panel and have their asses out in shiny skin-tight pants.

Does anyone actually buy these? I mean I would read them just to pry on someone being a clown but why the hell would I pay for it? Why are so many self-published comics like this? Most of them don't even have previews past the cover art so you'd be paying over $10 to get 20 pages of someone explaining how they hated dresses or liked girls in a long-winded way without even knowing much about the art.

ugh… that's disappointing to find out.

Or do they think their transitioning story will blow up and they'll gain recognition for doing something that's seen as trendy?

There are some good project in the Western scene like pic related, but it gets buried under all the crap (Sturgeon's law and all). Since the online art community is pozzed with woke shit it's impossible to avoid it, like even if a zine looks decent, it has to be ruined by stuff like "all profits will be donated to a trans charity".
I agree though, the Japanese (and Chinese) doujinshi scene blows them all out of the water, too bad most of the dedicated websites don't ship abroad.

>tfw your own mommy is charging you for a fucking drawing
>not even talking in person, via text
That's so depressing, 25 bucks is a ton for a little kid.
All those comments calling it cute and wholesome are honestly toxic, the fact that he knows her rates, that he had to check whether she has time and also immediately knew that he will have to pay if he wants something shows that this is a frequent topic in their home, a mom shouldn't demand fair treatment or appreciation for her "talents" from her own little kid. Those art twitter/tumblrinas really shouldn't have kids if they still think in such an entitled manner. You know exactly that she's the type of person who called her parents mentally abusive for not kissing her ass. Does she charge him for lunch and helping with homework too?

No. 627870

Exactly. It was about the characters, no one was actually ever looking at real children this age, and these characters were usually never written to behave very child-like anyway. 20 year olds that shipped Naruto with Sasuke didn't do it because these characters are underage but because the story was compelling to explore this dynamic. I get that real pedophilia is a threat, but censoring everything just because real pedophilia exist is far too extreme.

No. 627872

Imagine a world where obsessed people meticulously rake through your Twitter likes just to find problematic content.

I would absolutely never do this, should I charge them a taxi free for driving them to school or homekeeping fee for doing their laundry? That's warped as hell.

Yeah, they were easily drowned out because at the time Homestuck's fandom was giant. But there were quite a few people I'd see around that would point out how weird it was. These people were most likely not into anime either so that's probably why they also found all the sexualization of these ms paint kids with no arms so strange. It's so normalized in the anime community we don't bat an eye.
I think what also helped propel these ideas into the spotlight was with how many groomers were/are being exposed for preying on teens. People are now on high alert because it's so common to run into predators on the internet, especially in fandom/nerd-y type spaces. That's my theory anyway.

No. 627931

thats true, while I dont think ~sexualizing cartoons~ can be blamed, homestuck fandom had a massive grooming problem didnt it

No. 627982

Honestly This, the kid could spend that money on video games or snacks, but instead he wants art from his mom, and that has value to him and he values her time so he pays her for it. He doesn't have to buy art from her, he can commision other artists if he wanted. This is cute honestly, and given how many anons sperg here about art being a luxery and how people don't value art enough, it's suprising that they lose their shit over this. The kid values art,t he same way he values any other hobby, so he's willing to pay for it. This isn't the same as charging him fucking rent or food, or a taxi fare for driving him to school, those things are neccesary and need to be provided.

No. 627999

Yeah I don't see the big deal at all here? It's less about the art and more about the lesson. I'm sure if he KEPT commissioning art from his mom, that would be weird and a problem

So, I finally got around to watching Alphonso’s video, and I’d be lying if I didn’t admit a large portion of that video seems like it’s him laying claim to basic art concepts. Now, the layout being a 1 to 1 direct comparison is complete bullshit though. That does seem valid enough

No. 628008

Not really, this would be like a mom who is a chef charging her kid when they ask her for something different to eat like a cake or a mua charging her 12 year old for makeup for a school event.

And what is he even supposed to learn? He already knows enough to save and that he needs money for stuff, charging him for a drawing won't have any effect.

No. 628011

Y'all weird for defending it, it's his MOM for gods sake, all this time I though he's just comissioning a stranger which would maybe make sense but it's his MOTHER. Did your parents make you pay for stuff they've made for you too when you were literal babies? Even now as an adult I know my parents would never expect me to pay them money for they help and similarly me as a designer too I'd do things for them for free - which doesnt mean either of us doesn't know value of things, we just behave like normal loving family would. Which stage of capitalism is this bizarre situation??

No. 628016

I got paid for doing chores and I used that money how I pleased, and if I wanted an art piece from mom, not something that took 10 minutes, yeah I would pay her. And now as an adult I'd still pay her, because I respect her and value her time and effort. Obviously this is just to teach the kid to value work and art. Not to mention he chooses to buy art from his mom, with money he is getting from them. He isn't working an 8 hour day for his allowance or some shit, and this mom isn't Jeff Bezos, he got the money from them, and chooses to spend it on his moms art because he values it. If he didn't want to pay that, he wouldn't?

No. 628022

Tbh looking at that tweet >>627890 and the way it sounds with the "Oh, he's 11" humblebrag, it feels just as legit as all of the mothers claiming their 5 years old said some super profound thinkpiece about the state of the universe so maybe in the end there's nothing to care about here. Also I suppose a lot depends on how much allowance that kid gets. For me it would take months to save up $25 but I lived my childhood in a different times, maybe if he gets about twice as much or more monthly then I could say it's totally reasonable.

I think it's because when (straight) women do it, they are putting themselves mostly in the position of the woman, whereas men would be looking through the pov of the older male character being attracted to the younger ones. People definitly do have problems when women do it as well, although I never understood it, because in a lot of cases, that's not showing attraction to a younger person, because they are trying to live through the pov of the younger character. It's a fanatsy, and not really meant to be taken literally. Also most of these female anime children, do not look like actual children.

They eventually do loosen up on their anti-nsfw morals, though. I knew one artist who was an extreme prude as a 15 y/o teen and then went from 0 to 100 as a 19 y/o adult and even got called out for trying to push lewd onto other teens.

That's how I feel it will go for most of these crusaders after they get older.

The age gap stuff is old news, but kawacy is definitely a cow. He had a "girlfriend" in other artist OrangeSekaii up until about 2 years ago, when they suddenly stopped interacting online. People found out that he had a real girlfriend and OrangeSekaii was his public "girlfriend" just purely so that they could be a famous online artist couple in the public eye. They used to draw each other lovey dovey pictures and it all seemed very fake and way too overenthusiastic (he was even calling her his wife at a point).

About 2 years ago people noticed OrangeSekaii suddenly drawing tons of angsty pictures after unfollowing kawacy (presumably fed up with him using her as an online show girlfriend) and kawacy was suddenly drawing ~relatable~ comics about being single. That was a pretty wacky piece of drama that I wish more people talked about.

She posted a story which she stated that the issue between her and Kawanocy was all fine, since he already have a partner.

This might refer to Kawanocy toying her feelings by using her as a public tool to increase his popularity often saying "My wife orangesekaii" on his post desc.

I remember the rise of the SJW shit becoming popular in around 2012-2013. Before that you could ship and draw whatever you wanted and you were pretty much left alone. I think 2011 was the year when social media started becoming really popular so that was the changing point which made the moral policing slowly get more and more out of hand. Compared to when in 2005 you could make the wackiest, most problematic fucking ships and people would just go "weird but okay" unless that was their NOTP. Shipping from Kuroshitsuji was just seen as something people did and nobody thought it was "omg pedo" and people drew ship art of Naruto despite the characters being 12. Nobody thought of them as "minors" because everyone still had their brain intact.

One of my personal favourite ships was between a 15-year old and a 25-year old and despite their age difference the characters were in the same mindset and perceived at the same maturity. Because these are fucking adults writing fictional characters, they're not real people behaving like real kids. I honestly want to scream until my lungs give out because of all the zoomers not realizing that one day they'll be 29 and still find that 14-year old shounen protagonist hot because cartoon characters don't age with you.

I spent such a long fucking time believing that referencing was "cheating" and my skills stagnated so hard and drawing became a chore. When I finally said "fuck it" and started using references, my skills improved dramatically. You absolutely can't draw everything just off the top of your head and make it look amazing, every great artist drew from life and/or used references. I hate it that it's so discouraged and seen as "cheating" due to the retarded crab bucket mentality artist circles tend to have. If I was told to draw a person doing a complex Yoga pose I'd have to look up references to remind my brain how joints and muscles actually connect together. If someone asked me to draw the Eiffel tower I'd have to look up photos to see all the fine details that make up the whole design. Expecting people to have a refined photographic memory is outrageous and detrimental to one's development.

I feel like some people who used to trace and copy tried getting away with it saying it was "referenced" and now some kids can't tell the difference between simple concepts.
Referencing as in looking at real life stuff(through photos or observation) is common and encouraged in art sschools since forever.
Photos: ok to look/understand/reference a pose/muscle/proportion or whatever you need.
Not ok to trace over them or reproduce them completely and claim it without citing reference. Unless: it's been posted as free stock and it's been said by owner that needs no citing or it's a stock photo you actually bought.

Also, unless we're talking about people raised in complete isolation, pretty much all art concepts and forms are inspired by other art, this whole culture around being "original" or whatever is very modern, it's related to the idea of IP and it's not based in how reality works.

It does bring some minor satisfaction that the artist admitted their mistakes, it's much more than most. Taking the girl who used to trace persona's art as an example, most people find excuses or simply ignore and try to twist the story into a pity party for them.

I didn't realize I knew this artist until anon brought up the 15-year-old part.

They're very talented, especially compared to most artists on insta and more so considering their age, but their art definitely has been relying too much on orange filter lately. (I blame big instathot artists who reeee about how everyone needs consistent colour scheme and aesthetic to make it. Anyone would feel pressured to fit in.)

This is what their art looked like when I started following them. You can see how they have a good grasp on color theory.

It's when you draw an object from you're imagination without actually taking into account how the object actually looks. This can be super helpful for beginners, but you have to break the habit fast, because you're learning how to draw in 2D instead of 3D. That can make art stiff.

Also, just to be clear, drawing from your imagination isn't bad. It's just important to accurately draw things.

This page explains it better than I do with photo examples so I suggest so read this for better understanding: https://www.boredpanda.com/how-to-draw-with-eyes-not-brain/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=organic

I think the anime character designs that are most popular seem to follow a pattern of good coordination, not too much stuff going on. Maybe you like his designs because they are really cohesive? All the colors “make sense” together, overall they are visually pleasing. I feel like clashing is what makes a lot of character designs.

Zun is a madman
I think you are onto something, i like that Touhou characters all look like they belong in the same universe, they share similar accesories like ribbons and hats and coherent themes like Japanese Folklore. Other famous franchises like Fate look too generic to me, the characters could belong to any other gacha game or jrpg, but touhou characters are very distinct.

To me touhou looks like some generic drawings I used to see back then in deviantart. Fate's designs were a bit different maybe when the anime first aired out, but nowadays I feel most animes look the same.
I think good designs overall come from not only character designs alone, but if the surroundings and minor characters merge well with them. If it's inconsistent without any explanation then it feels weird.

This redraw is recent, and is just as bad as the original. Even if their skill is quite decent, I don't think they should re-design characters. When you compare the silhouette of the characters that she made to the original, it's just as bad or worse since you can't tell anything from their silhouettes. They said that they like redesigning characters, but you'd think that they have a grasp on how character design works - they don't.

Most artists on YT who do redesigns just redesigns the characters to have their specific style and aesthetic that the "redesign" sometimes becomes unrecognizable and loses the charm of the original. The redesigns just becomes their OC while claiming that it's a "redesign".

People can redesign while adding their personal twist, but when that twist is just as bland and boring as the original (sometimes even worse), then that's when I have a problem with these types of videos.

It's only natural to have a drop phase after a return, you're trying to rebuild your brand with different content - it can be better, as you've say you improved a lot - but it's still different and some people who liked what you did before may be just not on board with this, so they go away. Additionally, a classic of instagram "get followers fast" tactic is people just randomly following you among hundreds of others in hope you'll go to see their account and follow back; and then these people just go on unfollow spree every now and then to keep their feed clean, since they didnt care in the first place anyway. It's possible you have a lot of people like this following you, and once you started posting they were reminded of your existence and they remove you too, but it's not any loss for you because, like I've said before, they never cared. If you keep posting relatively often and interact with people who interact with your art you'll definitely build a new, better, more engaged following eventually. Don't get discouraged by numbers.

>Wanting a literal kid to pay for everything her mommy does for him makes you sound like a bitter lunatic.

This is art, not fucking food. He isn't gonna pay rent or a cab fare. Also yeah who fucking cares, because this is an art imageboard, and this is just discussing some rando's parenting style, which is not abusive or anything and has nothing to do with art.

No. 629472

Am I the only one who thinks it's both totally okay and reasonable for a mother who's also an artist to charge or not charge money for a commission from her kid? If she charges him money it's a good parenting decision to teach him about the value of money and budgeting through a luxury he himself chose to purchase and if she draws for him for free it's from a loving mom who enjoys doing something nice for her son. Both options are completely fine. I don't see why this is such a discussion.

No. 629477

i gotta agree and one thing some anons don't seem to consider: it's possible she doesn't charge him every time he asks her to draw something. she could be just doing it every now and then to show him that yes, this is the process and artists should be payed for their work, but since he is family he can get free work sometimes.

No. 629525

Anons equating this to child abuse or something are so delusional. I'm an adult now and I would still demand payment for art I do if it's a big piece, and I would pay my family for work they do. Like honestly, this is his mom's job, and if he commisions some big elaborate piece or a character design for 25+ dollars that is not a big deal. 25 Dollars is nothing for an art piece, especially for a kid he earns that money doing either chores or it's a free allowance.

>It would sound ridiculous in any other profession too

It's about teaching the kid about money, why's that so hard to grasp for you? Which, by the way, will be highly beneficial for him in the future. It's basically parental love to teach him the value of money and budgetting.

Same. I think what kaneblob did for the anime promo was REALLY STUPID she took the background of that drawing and painted over and also got paid Not sure why she thought she would be able to get away with that, but the other ones she was called out for…I have mixed feelings because everyone gets inspiration from other artists, photos etc, Some poses and compositions are so normal and over used , how can you say the idea belongs to you only or that a color palette belongs to you , I think in some drawings like the spirited away one was too obvious the heavy inspiration ..that one makes me uncomfortable but the other ones are kinda …normal? I feel anyone could come with the idea or colors , I have mixed feelings because I get sometimes the drawing can become plagiarism but sometimes it’s just inspiration.

ErgoJosh also hasn't a sense of lighting or shading since all his characters are drawn against a white background. There's no mood, no elements surrounding the characters to justify such harsh shading. He just ignored the mood lighting altogether and dodge/burned the shit outta her neck.
He needs to be doing more studies away from the social media before going on panels to fill his ego.

Anyway, switching gears, I don't feel like I missed much for lightbox expo. The discord was a hot mess and most of the panels were mostly just people in the industry sucking each other off for 40 minutes and then giving generic advice. Glad I didn't pay top tier prices for it. That's kind of why I can't stand industry events. It's just people already in the industry rubbing elbows, popular social media artists and then giving out scraps of generic advice you've heard for the 100th time. People like ergojosh don't really have anything to bring to the table. I got the most out of independent artists doing their own advice streams and q and a's than sitting watching some popular artist stream art they would already be doing on their own.

THIS. To me LBX brought nothing new. The big artists participating in it mostly gave the same old repetitive advices that they have at least one video about already in their channel. Plus the obvious ass-kissing.

At this point it's just an artist circlejerk. They teach us nothing new, draw the same old thing over and over, repeat the same advices and promote each other while basking in on the attention of fans while they doodle random things and watch meme videos sent on the stream chat. Disappointing.

I'm not complaining, to me it just seemed odd and I was commenting on it. Yes, I know there's that scene in the movie, I wrote it in my original post. But as I said it's not shown explicitly, so you would expect artists to make all kinds of interpretations of it, maybe using even the colors and pose used in the movie or something, but instead artists choose the same pose, colors and concept probably because they just want to follow what other popular people do instead of thinking about something different. That's what I was trying to say.

What's a typical art commentary channel?

Not the same anon from the post but alas,

Talks about art community drama (usually generic videos like "5 things I HATE/LIKE about the online art community!", "Artist Struggles!", "X ARTIST IS PROBLEMATIC!") and may dwelve into milkier stuff (ex.: Yandere Dev drama, other art commentary channels) from time to time for extra attention, uses sprites instead of facecam with an (unfinished) speedpaint of their own (although some may put in speedpaints from their subscribers) playing in the background. Sprites tend to be of their personas or an OC.

(I say unfinished because most of the time the speedpaint isn't complete when the video ends, so too bad if you were actually interested in seeing the entire process.)

Art is usually cutesy-looking with cartoony-chibi look and pink/purple cell shading. Cell shading everywhere. Goofy and sometimes overly dramatic expressions. Art skill level is usually between passable to okay amateur. Nothing exactly good but rarely something that's fresh trash. Just "okay" like the anon said.

OFC that's hardcore generalization though. There are some commentary channels with better-than-average art around such as Ponder, others with art that's more on the shitty side such as Creepshow. And some are middle of the road such as Tobi.

online and decided to check her twitter. It appears she said she was taking
a break from social media due to it dominating her life. I scrolled down

across which insinuated that she was involved in abuse towards a minor.

Her voice is rather grating but it's most likely due to her young age. She's hard to listen to for long periods.

Her opinions are basically run of the mill and she tends to flip flop with things quite a bit when new information comes out.

Are you the same anon as >>630114? Whatever.

I just looked them up and anon you must be either self posting or are very young because their art is incredibly underwhelming. All of their drawings are exactly the same in pose, design, and face. So incredibly similar that they definitely have same-face going on everywhere.

It's very generic cutesy and incredibly boring to look at. Their anatomy (whether stylized or not) could be so much better–but it's most likely that this artist is in their teens or very young.

Kudos to them for 6k followers, but honestly? That's not that hard to get on Instagram these days if you just post frequently and have the posts be the same thing every single time.

I would advise them to break out of their comfort zone and actually try learning their fundamentals in order to improve because their comfort zone is very much lackluster and they aren't going to get very far.

NTA but I had no idea a full well made illustration could go for that high of a price, I thought that generally it would always stay below $1000.

No. 630653

It's the norm for professional illustrations for clients like companies, since they aren't only paying for the art, but for the right to use it. To be honest it's a reasonable price for a whighly popular artist doing private commissions as well, especially if it's taking 40 hours. $1000 for 40 hours comes out to $25 an hour, which is a reasonable rate for skilled labor like high-quality art

No. 630669

When your main clientele is companies asking for promotion artwork and such instead of Twitter User SilverSonicFan asking for a bust shot of their OC it's a very standard price. Companies can afford it just fine and they expect a very different level of quality and have a larger list of requirements. It's a very different market. Also you have to keep in mind that it's not a regular day job so you need to charge bigger amounts for commissions because that money possibly has to last longer.

Also non private illustration prices consist of the pay for making the drawing itself plus usage rights which account for a large portion of the income. You need to consider though that an elaborate piece can take 1-2 weeks, especially when you have a lot of communication and revisions, you need to pay for everything as a freelancer and you will have phases where you aren't booked.

When I want to commission someone I usually go around searching for available artists that I like the style of, instead of waiting for them to come to me.

But if anything maybe you could specify the kind of style you want in your post? Nothing wrong with weeding out artists, it's your money.

That's bs especially for people who are starting out and just wanna make a little money on the side.
>100$ should be the minium starting price, not the ending price.

If a person makes a simple line art and charges 25$ for it and it's good that's not a bad thing. There are simple cute things to make which frankly are not worth 100$, not because of lack of skill, but because it's not technically complicated and 100$ would be much to high a price for the level of technical skill and time invested. I could custom make the simplest little drawing but noonw would buy it would buy it for that much. There is no objecive metric where pricing should begin.

This. If there are people out there who will pay assloads for something so simple, that's just the way it is. I follow an artist who makes adopts and while I think their style is really awesome, I personally wouldn't pay $100+ for it which is what they charge for their adopts. They do them through auction with the starting bid of $100 and people actually do participate. They've even sold a character for around $325.
I found that outrageous but I can't diss on them because they know their audience and that they are willing to spend that much on their art.

You guys ever heard of creampuffpaws (Angel) on Instagram? She used to go by candiedguts/novactis back in 2014. Got called out before because she was a 16 year old drawing pedophilia along with her boyfriend who was 5-6 years older than her at the time. She's 22 years old now and she abuses her current boyfriend named Michael (verbally abuses him when he watches porn and then proceeds to send nudes to other people to spite him, threatens with suicide unless he makes a public apology) and sends her whiteknights to attack anyone that resembles her OCs even a single bit to the point of wishing death threats on them, and blames it on her self-diagnosed "autism" and "BPD" when confronted. She would even try to start fights with people under 16 years old. She recently got in a drama with an even more famous artist because Angel's OC was a carbon copy of the artist's OC, and naturally people confronted her about it in which she responds by throwing an absolute shitfit. Recently, she's been age regressing her "sonas" to teenagers too, and then proceeding to draw porn of them despite being so unhinged whenever she calls someone out for even having a childish artstyle, calling them a pedophile while her art looks way more suspicious. She also lurks lolcow and spergs about it, laughing about how she's entertained by all the drama going on in the forums.

No. 632810

I think there's two types of artists like that - the whiners and the regretters.

I can't stand artists who constantly whine about needing to conform to a style, especially since they're the ones perpetuating it in the first place. These are the artists who make "How to become popular on Instagram" posts which just repreat "draw trends, consistent aesthetic" over and over again. To these types, I say grow the fuck up. You dug this grave, now lie in it

The other type complains because they've looked back on their art and realized how much they've stagnated for the sake of consistency. And I totally get it. Big artists are constantly telling smaller ones that they're not popular because their feed is messy and therefore their art is bad. Even if you think it's bullshit, it's easy to get influenced subconsciously. I think many artists, even if they don't follow trends, feel pressured to tone down their art because "art tip" Instagram accounts keep insisting so.

Yes. If you want to draw something you ~truly~ like then you're better off just drawing as a hobby and getting your money elsewhere. It's much less stressful to have a regular paycheck coming in allowing you to focus on what you truly want with your art than draw commissions you hate just so you can scrape together this month's rent payment.

>To these types, I say grow the fuck up. You dug this grave, now lie in it
Amen. I'm especially pressed by these types, it doesn't matter if they're self-aware or not, once you buy into the trend and start feeding it yourself then you lose all rights to complain about it.

I was about to ignore this artist until anon mentioned they're at 200k.

I fucking give up. What's even the point of putting effort into art if shit like this happens?

Small artists aren't a charity case that should be coddled. They should be learning how to do art on their own. There are plenty of resources. The only reason small artists might be salty a big artist isn't spoonfeeding them is because they want to be a skinwalker the way Cyarin does with Loish.

Imagine being such a jealous little bitch that you think someone needs to be cancelled because they drew edgy shotas 8 years ago, can't fucking relate to that level of pitiful autism.

No. 633097

A combination of competitive moral puritanism, mental illness, social ineptitude, inability to tell the difference between a fictional medium and a real-life occurrence, attempting to cope with the fact that they like the media, in many cases, and a struggle to gain attention online because they don't get it in real life. "I'm protecting children!" is their attempt to justify it to themselves.

No. 633117

None of them legitimately think it's "CP". None. Even this bitch starting that revolocities shit here is only using it as a crutch to carry on her fandom war vendetta for this artist. If you look real close it's always used as a mean to defame someone. For whatever reason they never use that energy to flag the blatant MAPs (like they were hard to find right) but instead it's always some famous artist or a person they had a personal beef with drawing "sexualized minors" i.e. Naruto and Sasuke fucking or "groomed minors" because they replied to a 17-year old's tweet. And it's always the people who compete for the same audience. And more often than not the person starting the callout turns out to be just as much of a fucking degenerate as the person the were attacking in the first place.

To be blunt people shouldn't play by their rules and start explaining the ins and outs of using art as a coping mechanism or try to reason with them at all, that just gives them validation that their spergy, demented crusade stands on solid ground. Call them out for what they are, crazy people being mad that people drew their NOTP or nsfw art of their pecious kinnie comfort character, drama mongers who thought they'd get a few retweets and a power trip out of calling someone the P word and having their armies dogpile on them, those who want to cover their own pedo asses or those who are simply unable to distinct fiction from reality. Take your pick but don't fucking reason with them, it's a waste of time.

inb4 "B-BUT I REPORT IRL PEDOS AS WELL" lmfao sure you do. I bet you spend all that precious energy hunting for pedos online and calling them out for sending dick pics to 12-year olds instead of just shit talking some twitter artist whose art made you uncomfortable and instead of blocking them you chose to fuck them over because your twitter brigade gives you golden stars for igniting outrage.

No. 633184

Then call them out for being actual child abusers? You cunts constantly blur the lines between someone drawing dubious art and a child abuser. There are NSFW artists drawing lolishit that creep on actual kids and there are people who aggressively crusade against muh cartoon kiddy porn who get outed for pressuring 14-year olds to send nudes. There are NSFW artists drawing lolishit with shapely bodies and big tits and who would never touch real kids, then there are NSFW artists who draw teenage shonen characters fucking and don't even think about their ages. You clump them all together and you're the reason why now everyone needs to check if someone being called pedophile actually molested a kid or drew Bakugo and Deku kissing.

Why should someone who experienced sexual abuse or assault have to be held responsible for the existence of pedophiles just because they want to communicate their experience and its effects in their creations?

I remember when Twitter zoomers were trying to cancel Kikuo for drawing a comic about suffering through sexual abuse (The comic obviously was in Japanese so they couldn't even read it) as a child and the trauma it leaves you with, all because of this exact reason.

Oh my god it doesnt take being revolocities to think everyones making a mountain of a molehill, as usual. Idgaf about him as a person i dont know shit anymore, but years ago I followed him when I joined twitter and liked his art style.
People started saying things like "ugh rvoloct**Es" you know and how hes sketchy, or even they just felt something off about him. Im confused why theres a sudden consensus to hate him with no reason, this is before anything shota-esque ever surfaced idk what you guys are talking about. I know at least one reason that came up was he drew suggestive art of pokemon characters or something, they didn't even have child bodies. Like sexy version of misty or some shit. I would have never guessed this is a problem until then. But I was new and naive so I unfollowed him. Still I always hada feeling it was simply an agenda because 1) they're jealous he's got clout/skill and 2) he's gay iirc. I remember people talking about how he "Sexualizes everything!!>!" and the buff guys being disgusting or something… It wsn't that bad to me, they were just being homophobic
Anyway i'm saying all this because that was among the first instances I noticed people doing this purity thing, and it was clearly for dumb reasons

Learn how to read, i don't give a shit if someone is drawing some shonen 14 yo anime character. I don't cancel or call out anyone for drawing loli or shota, i just block them, i'm calling out that shit excuse that actual pedos use so stop sperging.

When did i say they need to shut up and never speak of it or that they are the reason pedos exist???
There A TON of works that depict trauma in a way that doesn't sexualize and romanticize it. Having conversations about it is normal too, but no matter how you spin it drawing graphic nsfw of a kid character with the body of a child is completely unnecessary for dealing with trauma and is providing material for pedos.
I don't want these artists banned and cancelled, i just wish they owned up to it instead of hiding behind trauma as an excuse.

I understand, and i agree with her that most of this "Ooo X drew bnha character porn they're a pedo! cancel them!" is just twitter failed artists trying to start drama over jealousy and such, but i've seen people use that trauma excuse to justify things involving real kids and teens and it really isn't a good coping mechanism.

No. 633215

Agreed, I don't think that's the best way to cope but I also don't think it's necessarily a problem. Whether someone's an actual pedo depends on the person obviously.
Regardless of whether it's for "coping" or not, like anon said giving in to the discourse gives them more fuel. Because you're playing into their view and justifying it by trying to convince them. And you're spreading the issue with your username, which some people will always note you as bad without reserach. That's why if you get called out I think it's best to mostly ignore it and show you're not affected. It happened to my friend because ex-friends who resented her were spreading lies that she's a terf (lol). Although they called her silence proof, she did the right thing because it soon fizzled out. If she had argued with them it would go on forever and spread her name as someone problematic, letting them win essentially. Plus it's a bullshit fight to have in any case, don't entertain it

It's just completely stupid and demented. There isn't a shortage of meat or food in our planet. There is absolutely 0 need to eat people. We have problems with people not having enough money to buy food (and sometimes getting food to very rural and desert areas), which is why world hunger is still a thing, but that has 0 to do with a shortage of meat.

In addition, ensuring that your 'meat' comes from someone who is entirely consensual, willing, died of natural causes, healthy, and is in the right location for food harvesting is logistically a fucking nightmare if you actually wanted to make this into an industry/business. It's one thing to have a weird fucked up cannibal scheme set up with your weird cannibal friends. It's another to actually try to expand this and implement it. What guarantees your meat doesn't come from someone who didn't consent? Or worse someone who was killed for it?

On top that, it's just kind of fucked up to want to eat a person like genuinely see a psychiatrist.

Unless he's systemically doing pics of people taking a crap then it's a weak reach.

Instagram algorithm works like other social media algorithms. The more interaction in a post, the bigger reach you get. That's why people post controversial clickbait. They get people riled up and commenting a lot and it bumps the post to the top, the algorithm also prioritizes accounts that you yourself often interact with by liking and commenting. You also need to post regularly with a consistent frequency (i.e. every day shouldn't turn into every other day) which is why people repost old content to keep their engagement flow secured. There are plenty of factors that affect your reach and there are many resources on how to grow your social media reach, but most of the time it's just about luck.

No. 633744

That makes sense, I've always figured maybe instagram has specifics to it that you'd need to know. I do like plenty (only art I genuinely like) but rarely comment and also don't post comment bait questions. But I can see that commenting would be more valuable as engagement compared to likes. Idk, there's something so undignified in reacting to other people's work, hoping that they'll notice you, it feels like groveling for scraps. It's like how do you beat that initial barrier until your posts get shared around? I think I'll try posting more regularly and getting transfers from people who like my art offline.

>Idk, there's something so undignified in reacting to other people's work, hoping that they'll notice you, it feels like groveling for scraps.
That's why I gave up on social media numbers and learned just to not care about them. It takes a toll on your soul to keep comment bombing everyone with "omg I love this!!! hear eyes emoji check out my work pls" around the clock just so maybe someone will click themselves into your profile and follow you. Also it's very much dependent on your luck, sometimes your piece might go viral by a coincidence and give you a massive boost.

He stole his old style from a Japanese artist named urct/uracata back then. He caused her a lot of grief, I used to follow her back then and she made a few “call out” type posts about it at the time (in English) about how he would lie and say they’re friends and he made a lot of problems for her. Frankly I think he just has a shit personality, so I don’t like his art at all.
I remember back on tumblr someone sent him a fanart, a pixelated version of one of his drawings and he lost his shit on them, saying it was awful that they traced his work and he wasn’t appreciative of it at all. Ironically this was when he was straight up copying urct’s work.

No. 634912

Yeah I've noticed she does tend to bring up her age and how "adult" she is as well as her workload but I can't help but feel it comes from a place of insecurity. I mean if she really were responsible, she wouldn't have a huge ass queue that is reaching on a year's worth. Like what the fuck is she doing if she's allowing her queue to get that big?

No. 634916

Is she serious? Maybe this should be a sign that she needs to get her butt in gear and finish those commissions then. I'm more than positive that not all of them are super detailed ones that she needs to do elaborate backgrounds for.

I really don't understand the "not enough money" thing. If her backlog is as a big as she claims it to be then how is she hurting for money? I'm really confused about this lol.

No. 634919

All I could guess is that she’s frustrated with how much money she’s NOT making. Her commissions are really underpriced for the amount of time they take. I know people here would say her art sucks and as such shouldn’t be priced high, but it doesn’t matter- if people are willing to pay and wait so long then they’d be willing to pay higher prices. Sure, maybe even half of them would leave, but if she’s doing half the work and charging twice as much wouldn’t that be coming out on top?
A lot young aspiring artists don’t get this and just want the validation of people paying them for art, and are too insecure to raise their prices.
I don’t remember how much her commissions cost but the last tome I checked I don’t think any size or any amount of coloring was over 100 dollars. If I were to guess, her commissions probably take at lease three hours plus communication time, even if the style is simple, coloring takes forever.

I’m also a 28 year old freelance illustrator, and I won’t take on a job if it’s less than 100
dollars because just having to meet someone and deal with them is aggravating, I may spend sveral hours just talking with before and during the commission.

She goes on rants in videos about how people tell her to raise her prices and she self righteously says “would YOU pay that? Huh? No? Then shut up my prices will stay the same”
She has no business sense and her always acting like an adult is really probably her making up for the fact that she never grew out of that kiddie cesspool deviantart. Cringe

No. 634927

Personally, I thought her stuff is good at the price that it is. But it’s just her work ethic. Like, her stuff, for me personally, I can see being made under 30mins, but because she barely does her commissions, she’s really screwing herself over. I mean, I think in one of her videos where she talks about taxes, she said that she once only got 5 dollars back- which is pretty yikers, and I assume it’s not predominantly because of her low prices but because she lacks in the work department

Maybe this is stupid but why do some pro artists sharpen their pencils like this? Is there an advantage to sharpening pencils with a knife over a regular sharpener? I recently started doing coloured pencil stuff again since I don't have much time for painting and I got curious.

No. 635069

So they can control how sharp or blunt the tip is. Most sharpeners, when used, make the pencil extremely fine and sharp. Some artists prefer it stays blunt at the end for whatever purpose. Also, I'm not sure, but I think it shortens the pencil far less if you shave off the wood manually.

No. 635070

I would imagine that having it stay blunt allows the stroke width to stay consistent. When you sharpen it you have to sharpen it again and again because the tip gets worn out and the stroke width changes accordingly.

No. 635071

That does make good sense, thank you anon. I like coloring with really sharp pencils but they get shorter much faster because a lot of the 'core' also gets wasted more in a regular sharpener. This was very enlightening, thanks again.

No. 635198

I actually didn't know that about their trip to San Japan. Yeah then maybe she's not as financially put together as she leads on. But even when she was job hunting before the Covid-19 lock down, she was being unreasonable in her search saying that she wouldn't take a part time job where she made less than $13 an hour and I thought it was absolutely ridiculous and self-unaware on her part because she hasn't worked a regular job in a long time plus when she said there were a lot of jobs she couldn't do like stand on her feet all day (Warehouse work) or sit for long periods of time typing (Date Entry) because of her hand problem and it's like, you gotta be more realistic.

>they complained that she never did anything all day or helped out with chores and she would whine that just didn't understand she was a suuuuper busy freelancer.

Yeah I remember in some of her livestreams she'd give out about her in-laws and I would just believe it and think they sounded bad but when I think about it now and see how her work ethic is, I think you're right that she probably didn't jack all to help out and would use the excuse of "I'm busy with commissions" to get fall back on.

She doesn't 3D Moddel, she's not doing a big scale detailed webcomic… I just knew something wasn't adding up.

> It seems like she's much better at telling stories and giving opinions then she is making art.

Yeah I agree. She has a way of telling stories that keep your ears engaged more than doing commissions or even practicing her own art (even if she claims "I haVE nO TiME tO PRacTIce" lol).

> Honestly tho 13 dollars an hour in California isn't jack shit, minimum wage there right now is 12, but she acts really really entitled anyway.

And see I can understand that $13 isn't a lot but I mean if she's not willing to work in a warehouse or some Data Entry or something like that, how can she expect to make more than $13 when she 1, has not much work experience since she's been out of the game for at least more than 2 years and 2, she has these issues where she can't do certain jobs?

No. 636154

I'm pretty sure she is compensating. I remember that video and I thought something felt off with her to say something like that. It just feels like because she has shit work ethic with her commissions, her art style is jarring (again because she doesn't practice anatomy and she's admitted that), and she knows she's not in the best spot financially for her "job", she tries to make up for all these shortcomings by trying to present herself as this good and moral person and while that works for her young teenage fans, others can see right through her. And it sucks to say this because I know that she's not a bad person and there are worse people than her but it's her lack of self-awareness that is the biggest turn off from liking her.

No. 636159

If I had to guess, it's that she makes herself come across as relatable, at least to her younger fans. Like I've taken a browse through some of her comments and some of them mention their ages and I've seen ages from 13 to 18 so I'm sure majority of her fanbase are teenagers. I mean even her best friend is still in high school I think? I forgot how old TheZodiacLord is but I swear that they were still in high school.

and yeah, in some of TD's stories, I find myself relating a bit as well until she says something tone deaf and snaps me out of it lol.

> common dude with a sizable credit card.

I'm pretty sure most of her commissions aren't bought by adults. I can only recall her saying she once made $300 (or some 3 digit number like that) for doing a fetish commission and how she felt dirty after that but besides that, I'm more than sure most of her clients are at least under the age of 21.

Being deluded into thinking you're exempt from adulthood and its responsibilities gives her the relatable edge to her younger audience.

i wish lavendertowne did more creepypasta readings, draw my bitlife, and things like that. i used to subscribe to her yt for her voice and personality, rather than the quality of her artwork. there's something mildly irritating seeing her try to give art lessons/critiques or hopping on trends, idk why

No. 636453

Very true and I think it feeds into her ego. Like obviously her teenage fans are gonna hear everything she says and think she has it all figured out and is so wise because they don't have real world life experience yet because they see a woman in her late 20s who's married and is "making a living with her art" (when she really isn't, it's her husband) and think this all equals maturity. I did some more digging and I found that some of the people she streamed with aside from TheZodiacLord are also much younger so of course.

Speaking of which, did you ever catch on with how whenever she talks about teenagers, she still ocnsiders 18 & 19 as "kid" years. I mean I get it to a certain extent that you're fresh out of high school around that age but something tells me that she really hammers this home to justify her situation with her in-laws. I'm probably reaching though I must admit, I just found strange how she gets defensive when it comes to age sometimes.

This is so dumb, there’s a pandemic going on and funerals are being postponed for safety unless they are urgent, and TD grew up Jewish as mentioned in her video about her family member passing and said that Jewish family members must be buried within 3 days. RBG was Jewish, so that’s probably why it was so fast, why is she complaining about this?

No. 636508

This is a mindset I’ve seen getting more popular on tumblr/twitter, that 18 and 19 yr olds aren’t mature and should be seen as teenagers. I can kind of understand this, I think it depends on the person since people mentally mature at different ages and don’t always act like adults the minute they turn 18. But I’ve also seen people accused of being pedos for being attracted to 18 year olds since they’re “basically teenagers.” Idk, I think both sides have points, but this isn’t about art anymore so I’ll shut up.

RBG had been in quarantine for MONTHS, being high risk. She was going in for cancer treatment AGAIN, and all she can complain about is 'meh friend's funeral'

they make religious exemptions, for christ sake, if her friend was a jew, her father would have gotten the same treatment.

like, she was a supreme court justice. a little bit more important that 'my Friend's father'. how delusional can you be that you equate whatever the fuck he was to a SUPREME COURT JUSTICE

it's that entitled artist mentality, out in full force

naki used to post pretty decent content but ever since she got into final fantasy xiv all she does is draw things like this or commissions of peoples characters in game. shes pretty boring usually, all she does is vague post and vent about friends/work and other artist drama and does the whole uwu speak both in text and irl.
like the recent kaneblob drama and claims she knew about this way before but never said anything.
the only drama relating to her is probably early this month she was contacted by someone that gave her anxiety and then right after she got weird emails sent to her work to try get her fired.
Thought it was funny she tweets about taking a break from twitter because of these events but tweets regularly the next day like nothing happened.
even her "bad" quickly drawn fanart is alright, kinda just wish she'd draw more original things instead of xiv related art and memes.

idk much about this, i guess I assumed it was bad since the last time she hit over 1 mill (3,8 million i believe for the vid) was a year ago. Since then she seems to fluctuate between heavily and her vids get stuck at 30k-50k often, with some outliers. But even 500k seems low to me when you put it in context of 2 million subs.

In comparison Super Rae Dizzle has 1,5 million subs and has gotten consistently good views. Her videos that came out weekly, up to one month, have gotten 169k (four days ago) up to 800k and seem to sit comfortably at 300k - 1 million views.

No. 638672

Nayrt but Ina is the new HoloENglish girl. Hololive company is #1 VRtuber idol company in Japan in terms of popularity. She got doxxed pretty quick and I do not think she even minds that. She is a popular anime artist with 134k-ish Twitter followers who is actually talented and popular. She has a low-energy but her streams are very chill and nice to watch, especially considering the fact that she doesn't screech or attempt to be a high pitched uwu-chan. I personally like her art streams because she explains and shows things. She is still obviously a noob when it comes to streaming but imo she is the only enjoyable HoloEN of them all who haven't done anything cringe nor had any drama yet.

However everyone in western community decided to become uwu VRtubers ever since spring when Hololive was asking for Auditions for HoloEN. However all of them are the same high-pitched fake chans that make up dramas and talk shit about eachother while convincing themselves their voice and personality are real, while in Hololive people are some sort of actors who play role as their characters and are trying to be drama or politics-free. However so far HoloEN has at least one unstable-chan who already cried on stream two if not three times. One of them is also Senezawa, a 4chan uwuloli who would do nothing but get drunk and or high on her streams. But so far she is trying to keep a low profile but it's been proved a bunch of times.

Vrtubing in general is nothing but someone streaming with anime 3d or 2d avatar, nothing special really, but weebs are buying it.

Idk if this belongs here but it's been months and I'm STILL MAD about the wings on these two Dollightful customs.

She's so talented at drawing,design and sculpting and the wings are the biggest piece of the design and they're CRAP. The dark doll doesn't look so bad in this shot but she decided to MAKE UP constellations and embroider them on puffy slippery fabric, fucking embroidered a derpy owl on the wings of this beautiful doll.

And the blue wings are literally an old raincoat she chopped up, didn't even paint or finish the edges and just slapped on this otherwise pretty intricate design.

It's crazy to me that she's such a perfectionist (she sculpted her last doll like 3 times) yet these two messes are fine to be displayed like this. Is she wing-blind or something??

Oh my god I thought I was the only one!

And another thing I usually dislike is the little wood sticks (I think they're like ice cream sticks?) that look clunky and very amateurish. Honestly it would be better if she sculpted the wing structure like she does with the tails and legs.

I would like yo ask what makes you think she's an anachan though, but it would derail the thread I guess.

I watched her first couple of streams as a vtuber and she's boring as fuck and comes off as a tryhard. Her model is pretty but boring design-wise.
She wasn't an interesting or engaging streamer before becoming a vtuber either, and I don't think she realized that becoming a vtuber doesn't make you more interesting. In fact, it does the opposite and if you don't have an exaggerated personality and character, you come off as blander than if you just have a face cam.

not to be all like ugghh sexism!!!11!, but I do think to a certain extent it has to do with the objectification of women, as more objects of desire and admiration. Art exists to be pretty and admired and kind of objectified and the most popular thing to draw nowadays are pretty girls. Most of them don't have expressions of character, theyre just pretty to look at and nothing else, or they are hyper sexualized in a way. There are obviously a lot of these things for men as well, especially yaoi stuff, but this is just something I've been mulling over.

It's the ones that tend to not be coomers lol, I used to be friends with this guy who only did anatomical studies with men. He was terrible at drawing women and boobs especially.

What confuses me that she's the oldest child in her family and she's 25 years old, why won't she get a day job to help stabilizing her income, that concerns me

Sorry to say most all of her redbubble merch drawings are really boring. It's okay not to step out of the comfort zone but she's staying on comfort zone for too long… I mean it's such a pity, if she at leat varying her art rather than static compositioned more people would be more interested purchasing her merch.

Exactly, I don't think I've ever seen an insta profile filled with drawings of men as stand alone characters, whereas there's tons of that for women. I feel like women also draw our own gender since we're more connected to it, and we can express more through that, even when it's just drawing basic pretty girls, since that also functions as a kind of self insert wish fulfillment. It's a strong no homo thing too I guess.

I think women drawing women has less to do with objectification and more to do with the sort of "maternal" drive. It's like kids playing with dolls, you see far more little girls want to play with barbie rather than with ken. I mean if you even look at how female artists talk about their ocs' they always say how their ocs' are their "babies and I've never seen a single male artist refer to their ocs' like that. I think it's really just us liking to dress things up nicely and relate to them as if they were our own "child".

No. 639328

IMO this is pretty much it. Men are drawn for work and women are drawn for fun and/or to appeal to coomers. But women and gay men are more likely to draw men by choice.

Adding my own experience: I’m a girl who grew up only drawing girls because 1) I was embarrassed to draw guys because I felt like a pervert and 2) I didn’t want to learn muscle anatomy, and you can get away with not knowing muscles when you draw skinny or chubby girls. That’s something I’m working on now though.

I like her concepts and a lot of her techniques, but she overuses acrylic paint. She has an air compressor– she should be use airbrush for all of the large gradients on body parts and wings instead of trying to smear acrylic paint around. Plus, the acrylic paint she's using is too thick and it looks sloppy. She should be thinning it with something and layering it on so it looks more even. I cringed when she smudged the paint on the wings with her finger. Holy shit, just use your airbrush for that! Same for the tail; the paint wouldn't have gotten all gross and cracked if she had just airbrushed it on instead of using acrylic.

heres a quickly prepared gif with a stretched photo https://imgur.com/A44OCz6
Really makes you think the stretch was done on purpose so when you say it's traced the artist can respond "how can it be traced when it's not identical?".

She's getting commissioned by companies too, not just by individuals. Her individual commissions are decent since she picks which ones to take based on subject (instead of fcfs), but her commercial artwork for companies are shitty compared to her normal art.
Pic related is a promo piece commissioned by NetEase. She mentioned in the stream for this piece that she also charged them several thousand dollars extra so they could use it commercially.

If they limit themselves to only studying this dude (which they most likely do, seeing how same-y most popular "artists" is now) then they will only be copying his limitations in his artwork. There's a reason these artists can only draw the same 5 expressions and 3 same character types and settings over and over. The best way to gain artist development is studying a variety of artists and of course the way most artist started out, by studying humans around you or in pictures/video. You also have to be willing to accept humans don't come with the same 5 expressions and that people are very diverse ( I don't mean just physically but also in character and temperament, ect). My problem with online popular artists is that they act like their drawing subjects are mannequins they're posing in specific, trendy poses instead of trying to make them feel alive. For example I think the Ghost in The Shell or Cowboy Beebop creators/animators knew that very well. So did many of the older Western and Eastern animators in general. Overall, current popular artists trend on mechanical and copy-catting to a default which ruins their artwork besides for people who specifically like that style to begin with.

first one fits her pose and the way her head is while the second one looks random and misplaced irrelevant to her pose and the atmosphere of the second piece. this is just laziness. do people even study the characters they're drawing ?

you're moving goalposts so quickly it's funny. I don't see how cowboy bebop has different poses from nowadays anime? it has a darker color palette and the poses are more natural because it's a more realistic artstyle compared to moe etc. I think you just don't look deep enough for artists that don't draw kawaii pin ups. true maybe the kawaii style is more popular now but it's not all there is.

She said in the stream for this piece that she doesn't play the game, but that's no excuse because the character has a 10 minute long animated backstory video that was posted on Onmyoji's Youtube and Facebook.
