I guess they're trying to compete with Canva. I won't be surprised if the free Photoshop will be a big piece of spyware with the data sold to advertisers.
It's interesting that some of the pirated stuff is flagging the Adobe Genuine prompt. I had it happen recently with CC 2019. Meanwhile, my ancient copy of Flash (not Animate) still goes unnoticed and probably won't be cared about.

So apparently the csp shit isn’t exactly as bad as everyone thought, apparently each version will have a perpetual licensed version to buy, in sense from what I’m reading the subscription is the basically paying to have features before they’re introduced into the permanent license?


No. 1313007

they handled this idea very, very poorly. It's a confusing system. The options should have been trimmed down a bit
>get the base program, one time purchase
>get regular updates, subscribe
end of

No. 1313096

The issue is that they handled it very poorly. Instead of just saying clearly "V1 is a singular purchase you keep forever, V2 is its own thing with another purchase with a subscription for updates", they presented the information in a very confusing system with a vague flowchart. I honestly don't blame people for being a bit confused as it takes it few reads to take in everything and there's still not a lot known yet either. Will these updates even be worth the price? We truly don't know.

I can't blame people for being pissed as another company is shoving subscription-based bullshit down your throat. Despite the rise in popular of stuff like Netflix, I can understand people just being fed up and just wanting to own a drawing program again without any of this battle pass nonsense attached. You truly only have open source, a few decent programs and piracy as an option.

The issue is that they basically opened the floodgates for other subscription nonsense to occur. Considering the chart says they will not support older versions after future updates, I have a sneaking suspicion they might just delist older versions they don't want to support anymore (similar to Adobe).

Honestly, keep V1 if you already have it or just wait for the V3 one-time purchase. V2 seems pointless unless you're someone who truly wants those updates immediately.

No. 1313098

We really live in a society where you have to pay for patches now which will never not baffle me. “Sorry if you don’t have a sub we’re not gonna patch an issue with the software we sold you”

No. 1313105

I think patches for issues will still be made, it's just that you will have to get an annual subscription for actual updates with new functions. It's weird that they put out the news like that, without info on the pricing everyone just assumes that it will be very expensive. If it's 10$ a year for the update pass it might still be worth it, but we also don't know what kind of updates they are planning that would justify all this

No. 1313253

are updates for these art programs even worth it?

All you really need in a digital art program is decent brushes, a layer system, basic tools, a color wheel/mixer, and the ability to save high resolution files. Most basic art programs have this, which is why these subscriptions models are evil. Most users aren't using every single feature of an art program, they probably take advantage of 30% of CSP or Photoshop. Long live piracy

No. 1313283

A lot of comic artists rely heavily on CSP tools to meet deadlines. Vector line art, 3D models and assets, easy panelling and speech bubble tools improve the quality of life of these creators, especially those creating Webtoons with almost a hundred panels per week. The Korean version of the announcement has 13K QRTs for a reason.

But for illustration, it's definitely only a fraction of features used.

but that's the mark of a true artist imo. people who cannot see flaws in their art stagnate, worse when their "followers"/people around them validate meager abilities. I feel like every good artist goes through a periods of criticism towards their own art.

this advice is good.

No. 1313828

Not an artist, but I have to create polished work in a high-stakes environment and get this feeling, less so over time. Ime you can at least sort of get over it with a mixture of intrinsic and extrinsic feedback- building your self-confidence (however you can manage to do that) and remembering that you consistently hate your work and as such your second-guessing is likely a you problem rather than a problem with your work + remembering all the times you got great feedback on pieces where you second-guessed yourself. Of course, it's also not necessarily a bad thing to be critical, so long as the criticism is directed towards things you can improve and not 'this entire thing is shit and so am i'.

I hate this channel so fucking much. The obnoxious editing, the basic white girl voice and mannerism, the lack of bibliography to fact check, the inclusion of dumbass modern politics.

No. 1313850

Recognizing flaws and hating your work are not the same. This kind of /ic/ tier mentality is why so many get suck not practicing because they're afraid of making mistakes or get too discouraged to keep improving. You cannot improve your art significantly if you learn to hate drawing.

No. 1313857

i get this way when i'm in the mid stages of my paintings too. i try to take a few days away from it, figure out what about it is bothering me, and make a plan to fix it the next time i sit down to paint. it helps me be critical of my work in a healthy way to improve while also not getting burnt out/keeping my love for creating art in tact.

No. 1313870

Idk when I hate stuff I draw I just stop drawing it and draw something new. like if it's not coming out the way I like it, toss it. start with a blank canvas, but keep drawing.
I don't like spending too much time on one thing, especially if I'm starting to hate the way its coming out. I think it's been the best way for me to avoid hating my art, burnout, or worse drawing itself.

I don't know why people get salty over it. It's same model that Adobe used when their software had perpertual lincence. If you like upgraded from PS 7 to CS1 it was understandable you had to pay, since it was a major release. CSP 1.x had 10 years lifetime which is a lot for graphics software compared to how often Adobe rolled out new PS or Illustrator version. Basically subscription is option for 1.x users who don't want to pay for new licence. Which gives you choice, with Adobe you ypu maybe got slight discount but I'm not sure.

Not updating myself since CSP is good enough and got everything I need so far. Hoping 2.x will have at least 5 years lifespan though

No. 1314543

Most of official CSP news were not really understandable since I feel they were directly or machine translated from Japanese. Same with this here

No. 1314586

samefag but I checked image properly and it's fucked up if you have to pay for every feature release instead of giving free updates. people will hold on 1.x forever mostly due to this

No. 1314595

The newspost said that patches (bugfixes) will still be made to different versions. It's the new features that will cost you.

I don't mind being the odd one out on this, but given how much digital artists can ask for, as a collective, out of a software justifies the subscription model in some cases. Hosting the asset library each year can't be free, for example. I also use CSP between my tablet and desktop, so I pay for that service because it means I don't have to keep going through the trouble of transferring what may end up as out-of-synch files.

A lot of digital artists feel so entitled to so much, but lose their shit when they're asked to pay $4/mo to help maintain a software. Same people will ask an artist what brushes they use. Said artist releases them for a fee and they lose their shit and pirate them.

I get it if you just want to do it as a hobby; but you've got options like Sai, Krita, and Procreate. But, when you actually make money from art? There really isn't an excuse for it when keeping your tools up-to-date is important.

If CSP were pulling an actual Adobe where they were charging what was basically a lease with a cancellation fee, my feelings would be different.

No. 1314858

I think art programs should lock features behind an expensive paywall (like CSP asset/brush library) and offer their basic program for a set cost.

I hate the subscription model, for any service, it's just an easy way for these corporations to make money without offering anything new. I'm paying for an art program, not their maintenance fee.

No. 1314924

It's always references. Look at photos/paintings of liminal spaces and analyze what gives them that feeling, then apply to your own art and style

This might sound really stupid but is anyone else struggling to draw from certain angles? For some reason I have a hard time drawing anything facing the left whether it be human heads or buildings and, I attributed this difficulty to me being right-handed and having a, err, "unique" way of gripping a pen. However I look back to my old (bad) art and see that I managed to draw those left-facing angles fine before? But now when I do it they end up look mooshed and weird and I just can't get the "rhythm" of it right?? Is anyone else having trouble with this?

Nonas I feel like quitting art. I want to find more friends within my specific niche of drawing but the people who've made my life a living hell for the past years are there and well-beloved within the community. Watching them receive all the love, support and sympathy despite the shit they put me through is fucking terrible. They guilt-tripped me saying their mental health would be ruined if I left them, so I stayed for months even if I was suffering, but after I finally got the balls to leave they don't seem affected at all.

I hate this so much. Why am I the only one who's suffering? I feel like quitting art altogether so that I don't have to see their bullshit anymore.

No. 1316842

Sorry anon. I’ve experienced something similar with creative types and it hurts when they don’t even care that you decided to leave. I don’t know your situation but is it possible to find another art group? It sucks feeling shunned and lonely but I don’t think you should quit your art because of it. Don’t give up!

No. 1316870

IMO the people who ran DA killed it when they stopped cleaning up porn and the accounts of non-artist retards who would flood the site with stolen images. It made it too hard to talk to anybody new on the site, because it might just be an idiot roleplaying, and you can't refer normal new people there because fetish shit/porn or anime screenshots might show up on the same page as your actual artwork, and then you look like a questionable person as well.

No. 1316878

Sorry to hear you've been through something similar nona. I hope you're in a better situation now.

We both do a specific type of art targeting an indie market (can't mention exactly because I suspect she lurks these threads) and it's difficult to sustain unless you shamelessly market yourself every opportunity you get. She's put herself into every single corner of the internet that has remotely anything to do with this niche for this reason. There's really no running unless I completely change the medium.

It wouldn't bother me so much if she didn't have such a sparkly reputation among the community. She portrays herself as an uwu kind, soft anxiety bean when she's self-absorbed and entitled. Many offline friends have cut her off en masse due to her constant victim complex and she's even briefly appeared in Kiwifarms threads.

No. 1316882

It may be a bug on my end (mobile), since the new update DA always shows me a page for a second before getting a black and red error page. On desktop I tried to browse their search but the results were not related and one page of images. Usually there were tons of results in the past. I don’t even bother with DA links anymore.

No. 1316885

No. 1316889

Thanks anon, I hope you’re doing better too. I’m in flux right now but managing lol.

As for the medium would you be able to change the subject matter so you could branch away from her? I follow some art cows on KiwiFarms for a good laugh but it does suck when you’re on the other side and dealing with them.

I’ve encountered artists like that and if you’re not letting them have their way they end up turning on you or shunning you. It’s a mind screw. You’re better to be apart from her as much as you can be.

No. 1316908

I think it's possible, but a number of well-beloved and respected figures within this niche have told me they love my work and want to see more from me. I enjoy having my ego fed, kek. (In hindsight, I think this might have been why she targeted me and constantly demanded I promote her, even though she has more followers than me on every social media.)

Why is it that the shittiest of people try the hardest to come across as quirky and nice? She acts exactly the same as Creepshow Art.

No. 1316922

That’s good anon, I would focus on those people and shift in a different direction since it sounds like you’re not completely kicked out of that niche. If others know she’s dramatic already you can keep your head down and work and you’ll come out ahead.

I’m not sure why people act so sweet online and then 180 in private. It reminds me of another cow (not art) glitter and lasers. She puts on a huge happy quirky display but every time before her video ends her face drops and she’s mad kek. People know when others aren’t being sincere.

No. 1317187

I think it's impossible to get a big following (or a following at all) on tumblr unless you bring in followers from elsewhere or draw fanart and woke stuff. That being said, tumblr is quite peaceful if you're just doing your own thing and want to post art for fun. I like the custom themes and being able to make my page organized and looking nice. I've been posting art on tumblr consistently for two years and my only grudge is the camgirl bots that follow you randomly, but since I don't care about followers or reblogs anyway I just block them and move on. For someone looking for people to interact with them, I believe the bots can be quite disheartening.

I know it depends on the venue and your audience but I'm worried I won't do as well unless I make really generic shit everyone will like.

I haven't been able to get much following on tumblr but I appreciate the way how the site works (and being able to have cute themes). Generally I can only get more notes on fanart of certain fandoms. Original art or stuff that almost nobody else cares about doesn't get much notes.
I personally enjoy it as just a hobbiyist that does mostly fanart. It doesn't feel as corporate as instagram and I like getting notifs from fanblogs of whatever character I drew because it feels like it hit the right target audience which makes me feel fullfilled.

I think the original art that gets more attention on tumblr is from skilled artists that have a sorta "theme" going on through most of their drawings. I think maybe?(big question mark) you could get some attention if you attached most of your drawings to a certain tumblerina aesthetic like animals-wearing-bonnets-cottagecore or whatever else.

Nonnie, its okay. Sorry i misunderstood completely, i thought you said you didn't want to make art of genshin stuff or whatever is popular at the moment. Alot of people make money off their original art, I myself bought a nice tshirt and a bunch of other things from the artist alley. In worst case i could advice to make some cute doodles that remind people of animal crossing or something, if that helps. I remember i gushed over one artists animal crossing paints at DoKomi, they were so good that the next day my favorire pieces were sold out. And generally people like cutesy or edgy stuff. There is always room for everyone! Some people even just collect planner stickers with bunnies, etc…

No. 1318393

If it makes you and other Bad At Rendering nonnas feel any better, one of my most favorite art "styles" are the ones that use flat colors. I really love the look, especially if the colors are more muted. You could always find an image/screenshot that has colors that fit your drawing's "vibe", and color pick from it. It would probably help you get used to choosing colors on your own eventually! I did this once for rendering gold/metal, I was surprised to see that using greens and browns created the illusion of it being yellow/golden, and now I can apply that knowledge to future works.

Ayrt, been loosely following radio runner's art curriculum, picrel, and it seems to have helpful resources on light and colour. Not on them yet because powering through the anatomy still but if you try it I hope it's helpful.

You mean flat design? Yeah that's literally how I colour, with some cel shading. I like it too, though I do traditional art where that style looks less interesting/impressive (less sellable) than in digital, and I'm trying to ditch my current job and make a main career out of art.sk yeah.

Has one of you ever tried changing their art style and has some advice for me? I'm drawing in an anime style since ever and everytime I try to get away my art still looks like anime.

No. 1319187

Total vent into the void here, but I'm losing interest in art because of how much time I spend on it. It's a ridiculous complaint for me because I can arguably shit out some pretty decent art (imo) in about 40mins to an hour but even then it feels like a chore because half of the time is spent playing fucking anatomy simulator and that is so goddamn boring to me. It might be my fault because I essentially go from rough sketch straight to painting, but I can't add more steps otherwise I'd never finish it. In that aspect, I don't even mind drawing, it's more so just the time I have to spend making adjustments that suck all the joy out before I actually start painting over it.

I feel like I get even more demotivated because my rough sketches seriously look like shit, so I'm looking at a shitty sketch for most of the time I'm working on a piece, and it doesn't start to look decent till the 3/4 mark. It's all coming to a head where I'll draw one bust sketch 2-3 times a month which takes about 10-20 minutes and then I pack my drawing tablet away. I miss drawing but I hate spending time trying to polish it into something that I'm proud of. I've tried drawing without judging it but then I just feel like I've stagnated with my own art. Argghhhh

No. 1319260

I don't know what your rough sketch process looks like but are thumbnailing and gesture drawing a part of it? That usually cuts down on anatomy fussing time for me.

Kek I just saw this in my feed and like >>1319281 I noticed her legs looked off. It’s probably the skirt/gown thing but it reads like a mermaid tail with legs sticking out.
OP, I followed her for a while but her whole style and theme has been about fantasy paintings. Did she used to produce different thematic pieces?
Where are you wanting to go with your style? If it’s in illustration you can still use anime but look to French or Italian to shift your style to cartoon proportions. It’s animesque. You can look at American comics if you want a realistic style or if you want to get completely away from that and study traditional practices then start studying your weak areas. Once you know the ins and outs you can break it down. That’s all anime (and cartooning) is about - shorthand symbols.

No. 1319440

Her thematic has always been fantasy, but she used to put more love into her work. Currently her art looks like copy and paste just so she has content to post

No. 1319450

I’ll have to search then. Her site only seems to have her most present work up. The quality appears to be the same so I would say it’s all done with love and dedication. Do you think her work is becoming rote because she’s pumping out work that isn’t up to her previous standards? I will say that her Celtic zodiac is interesting and she’s always painted faes but it could get boring if that’s all you see. I think her husband just paints monsters or dragons. Same thing.

No. 1319480

I don't know, it still seems shady to me, like they're dipping their toe in the water to see how others will react first. Why not just release V2 as a complete package instead of separating updates into pieces you have to buy all at once until V3 drops? Why would anyone want to use their subscriber plan, when you can just wait for the release of V3, what's the incentive for getting V2? Is the clone tool really worth the sub?

No. 1319562

Does anyone else feel weird when the moment a relatively small creator suddenly goes viral and gets a bit of traction immediately locks all their content behind a pay wall? A lot of the times when I'm following some artist's work and enjoy it they suddenly make a hit piece and instantly start charging everyone to see their content and it bums me out because I feel like they're shooting themselves in the foot with it. How are they going to grow even bigger when the only things new followers see are just the same 2-page sample and advertisements for their upcoming comic they used to publish online for free? I get that people want compensation for creating entertainment but I usually end up losing interest and unfollowing once I'm expected to fork out cash for something mediocre that everyone else is offering for free. Maybe I'm just entitled.

Bleedman has always been a creep. He's pretty open and defensive of his attraction to little girls, too. SEA is rife with pedo sex tourism so you know he's offended at least once, especially since his best pal Griddles had at least attempted. He should've kept his trap shut and let people keep believing he was a young woman and not a middle-aged obese asian.

Fun fact for those who don't know, Griddles is the same pedo who was friends with Zami070, the tumblr artist who allegedly got bullied into attempting suicide over Steven Universe drama. Her drawing fanart of his loli PPG OCs was what got her in trouble on tumblr, since they're the same ones hes commissioned porn of. She claimed she had no idea of his past and that she was a kid, but this was after he'd been convicted.

..So he's never openly said he is attracted to little girls and he's apparently a pedo by proxy even though he's apparently outed Griddles before and posted Griddle's mugshot? On top of that, the racist idea that just because he lives in the Philippines, he must be a pedo too. From the sounds of it, Griddles is the issue. Griddles is also from Australia, not even from the Philippines, so the idea they "he knew" doesn't make sense either. I'm getting a lot of "He knew this person and this person was convicted, so he's definitely also 100% a pedophile too" when that's not seeming like the case at all.

Not to mention the D-pedo site doesn't seem to exist and doesn't belong to Bleedman either.

Any grown man who draws lolicon and pedoshit will always come off as sus. Can't be surprised when people think you like little kids when it's all you're drawing.

I think you're always going to have a lot of theythemits in certain spaces where creativity and tech come together even in the most banal ways. I'd like to think it might teach them how to function without the need to be validated every second like on social media.
The beauty of a webhost is that your space is still your own. They can't brigade or cancel you as easily, if at all, unless your hosted content actually violates TOS.
Neocities runs a nice initiative with the fact they have a built in webring/directory with the host, which encourages curation more. I'm thinking of going premium since it's got nice features, and I support their efforts. Plus, having your own standalone website looks better as far as a portfolio can go. And, if you don't like Neocities, you could always re-upload your website to another host quicker than trying to repost content to new social media websites. It's usually just a zip your old files, upload, and unzip on the server process.

I also overlooked the smallweb thread. I'm an artist, but websites have always been my canvas.

No. 1322148

I have no motivation to draw if I can't get validation. I just realized I spent every single day to get better and I realize I don't even like drawing at all. If i can't have my art liked by others I don't even see the point of drawing. I don't really know what to do, I wish I could like the process of drawing without validation. But I don't know how, can you guys describe what feels satisfying to do when drawing?

No. 1322216

ED used to have the porn he drew for Griddles on it. I don't know if it was a casualty of the constant downtimes and server switches, but it was there for quite a while.
We get it nonna. You're one of those 'its just fiction' weeb pickmes. Bleedman is and always has been sus. If you look at his whole body of work, especially back in the early 2000s, it's painfully obvious that he's into little girls. It's all he draws and his inspiration. If you want to stay blind to it, that's on you but Bleed isn't going to send you a fruit basket.
The best remedy for this is to make art friends you can share your stuff with. The easy route would be to join a fandom discord, but I wouldn't recommend that if your tolerance for immature fangirling is as low as mine. If you truly don't like art and only want validation, then put it down. It's not good to siphon attention doing something you don't even like.

>can you guys describe what feels satisfying to do when drawing?

the physical act of drawing isn't satisfying imo, it's like building legos.

what i love about drawing is being able to recreate the ideas in my head accurately. i can draw whatever i imagine now, it's an amazing feeling. if you don't have any ideas in your head and are just drawing for clout, stop now lmao social media clout is worthless

No. 1322467

I'm assuming you're a hobbyist with no intention of making art your job.

You could learn to just draw for yourself, you don't need to post every single thing you do on social media. At some point I think you'll find yourself drawing subjects and ideas for your own enjoyment. Take a step back from social media.
>can you guys describe what feels satisfying to do when drawing?

Kind of inspired by your post.

I used to draw a lot during class in school, as my main coping mechanism. I would go into sort of a trance of just drawing lines, shapes, anime shit, shading, whatever. Seeing the line appear on the paper where the pencil or pen had been was hypnotizing, the perfect escape from 6 hours of crippling anxiety and bullying.

Now that I'm not in school or university anymore, I just can't fucking draw. I like my job, so I'm usually focused on it. And I never really doodled at home, where I felt a bit safer. I feel like I need the droning sound of a teacher, people sitting quietly around me, and the need to escape reality to be able to draw. It makes me really sad to be honest.

A rant. I just stumbled upon instagram account that has 6k followers and almost every post reaches 1k likes. The thing is every each one of her posts is just stolen art or photo with ugly drawing effect added on. Depressing. She even uses her real name, like, isn't she embarrassed? But no wonder noone called her out yet, all her fans look like bots. She's also apparently doing commisions? I wonder how the fuck does that work.

Question, what extensive drawing/composition course (that I could pirate, kek, sorry) should someone do, with fixed exercises online that is taught by someone who really knows what they're doing?
Should I just take a bunch of specific courses based off who's great at certain subjects?

I ask for a course because honestly I realize that I will struggle with following along with a book and having something spoken makes me learn better–in the past I've learned very technical skills with videos while my basic ass self has struggled with books. Having a sense of velocity and doing something helps me.

Bonus points if the instructor is very creative.

No. 1322757

Late and gay but this pic brought back memories. I remember when popular DA artists started a trend of drawing yourself as a video game character complete with random stats. He chose to depict himself as..that. I totally forgot about him too. I think he was featured once on the cover of early IFX issues, which was surprising at the time since he was known for skirting the line between serious and joking with his art, but haven’t heard much after.
It’s the new algorithm push. They want artists to make short videos. Even better if you can ape an artist’s style. This one looks like a Loish clone. I imagine she must be annoyed at all the clones making money from her look.
What do you know how to do already? I have a few but it depends on your skill and goals.

Not related to this but I can’t stand artists who stream and have asmr saccharine baby voices. I’ve only met two or three women who actually have a high voice but the rest of the time it grates on my ears. Why do they do it.

No. 1322947

I've been drawing on/off for a long time and I want to go back to square one because there's certain areas I haven't at all touched, like perspective, and others. I regret not experimenting more.

As for goals, idk, in broad strokes I was to create surreal fantasy worlds, get good at composition + storytelling, strange creatures, etc. Sounds bad, doesn't it? Lol, but that's what makes me happy. I have a lot of ideas and I haven't been happy with what concept artists have been putting out.

Also, I seem to learn better with less extremely analytical/technical guidance. I started rapidly improving with the only art class I took (figure drawing) when I started following my instincts more and the instructor started giving me advice on how to hone them–not when I was being taught construction techniques. People crowded around me to watch me draw and ask for advice towards the end of the course, so maybe I am not completely delusional in thinking I improved.

And yeah I've looked around a bit for courses but haven't found much or there's instructors, like Sycra, whose art looks terrible to me. Am I being too picky?

Anyway, I will probably make exceptions later on and pick up specific books too; i.e., Gurney's Imaginative Realism and maybe one on dynamic type drawing and color.

Laying ink or oil down feels so satisfying to me. In digital I like trying new brushes or try others way of styling. I mainly draw for the end result to finally come out of my imagination. As long as I have a friend or family member willing to share it with I'm happy. Sure it would be nice to have social media with engagement but to me the only real reason I have for that is wanting to quit a mediocre job. I wont lie I get really frustrated with myself wanting improvement all the time rather than just enjoying art as fun. Usually I make myself draw something that's fun but different like animals or chibis without the focus of "be good". If it comes out shit then it can either be torn up or deleted worse case. Theres always a chance to start again unless I fully lost my hand.

I studying traditional techniques so I’m not sure if it’ll help since you said you don’t like a ridged structure. But I will suggest just because it might help anyways and you might find something useful.

1. Atelier schools. Watts atelier has some online courses. They use the Reilly rhythms method for figures and portraits. Proko went there too but he teaches Loomis more than Reilly. You can find other atelier schools online but that’s a pretty big one. Proko used to have a podcast with Marshall Vandruff and he’s going over Bridgeman on his Discord currently.

2. Marco Bucci, Ahmed Aldoori (currently has a school/course), Sinix, and others are what you want it seems. Look up concept artists and illustrators and you’ll find a lot there. I hope it helps. These artists are mostly all digital but they have traditional art backgrounds.

Write down some of your favorite paintings or illustrations and find who the artists are. I’ve found a lot from looking at book covers, illustrators and video game concept art. I don’t know if you want to go into the animation/video game field but those areas lend itself to surreal ideas.

My friend makes NSFW commissions and is pretty popular in that community on Twitter. Doesn't pay well, even though she draws some pretty fucked up stuff and has regular clients. She definitely makes more money than me and other people I know who don't do NSFW stuff, but she has a regular job because there's no possible way she could live off the commission money. I should say that while she's talented and has good anatommy, her art is pretty average. If you've got god-like talent I'm sure you can make a bigger income.

The sad part is that she claims to enjoy drawing that stuff, but looking back at the art she did before she started pandering to coomers, she clearly had a lot more fun with it. She constantly whines about feeling uninspired and lacking motivation. She deleted all her profiles where she used to post her regular stuff because "no one cares about it unless it's porn" and has clearly lost the ability to draw for herself.

Just scroll through any social media and you'll see "mommy sorry do you want a dog I can bark" at any mildly attractive person, and thirsty comments if any content has a liquid or a hole.

I don’t know shit about color calibration and cmyk and printing.

Am I fucking myself over if I calibrate it to look similar to mobile? I keep wondering if my colors look terrible to professionals with correctly calibrated screens.

If your calibration is different than there’s their colors are going to appear different. You should program to whatever you’re creating for.

It depends. You can actually make really good money at it. But it of course all depends on what you draw. Male gaze stuff, and pinups will bring you in the most cash. Female gaze, with BL stuff will as well, but not as much as the aforementioned. Weirdo troon shit will grab the least, and you'll just get the absolute lowest common denominators as clients. NSFW stuff attracts eyes very quickly, and its the quickest way to generate a following in a heartbeat. So if you have especially a great style, and produce quality work, you'll have no time making it, and perhaps making good income with it.

This is kind of self-explanatory nonnie. The market is overstaturated, there’s too much broke opportunistic normalfags out there, so basically it’s a big fat no and you should lower your expectations. However it’s lucrative if you already built a decently sized following and recognizable brand for your NSFW artwork and built up a reputation in those freakass porn communities. Don’t take any advice here telling you ‘yes but blah blah’ mostly it’s a big fat no and you’re going to embarrass yourself. Have some dignity and draw something you actually like, suck it up and slave it IRL like the rest of us.

The reality is that how much you make depends on your art style, skill, market and niche. Same for SFW. It can give you a short-term boost but if you have shitty art, no niche and otherwise no marketing skills you won't get anywhere.\

Basically this. It can be argued any market is oversaturated so just do what you actually want to do.

Don't want to and are only interested in the money? Then put your skills literally anywhere else.

If you have strong fundamentals you will be able to draw in almost any style, and you can change and build your natural style through study and practice.

No. 1328263

it really comes with practice and time, but know that it probably won't ever feel the same as drawing traditionally (pen and paper etc)

also try different settings until you feel more at ease; for example i dont really like using the buttons that the pen has, but use the buttons on the tablet itself, but you might feel the opposite. really, just keep at it, it comes with time

Art styles are inspirations or dupes of other art styles. It’s very easy to relocate or create your own style naturally if you just learn and practice basic fundamentals and heavily research and observe artists or even non-traditional “””art”””. Tbh I think style is an overrated aspect of being an artist because it realizes on wanting to be “recognizable” instead of making something that’s genuinely good and doesn’t rely on wanting to be speshul~ or standing out. Also art styles are heavily dependent on mediums or eras of art, it’s likely manga artists draw very similarly because they are restricted to that medium and often work under other people. The whole CalArts meme is exactly that, industry standards, faithfulness to medium, art education and all of that jazz. There are similarities to Hannah Barbera art style and modern art styles pls don’t hate but Steven Universe kek but no one realizes that.

If you do fanwork, you could post on the designated pyw day, or just occasionally post in the subs dedicated to your medium.

No. 1328989

I slowly started playing with brushes until I found one I liked and tried to copy some cartoon looks, take influences of coloring/shading from artists and then used different brushes until I found a style that works for the rendering I liked… You just.. Develop it. I don't think there's a god way to explain how to make your own style, but don't feel bad if you also have a style that looks like someone else. I honestly don't think that's a bad thing unless you're using that to pass off your work as theirs or something, but look at people like Don Bluth who have styles across animations and other animators who have the same art. It's not copying unless you are copying. Otherwise, style is subjective and regardless, even with concept, someone is going to say something about how it looks or reminds them of something else. Look at how many artists get called out for "COPYING" when something popular is happening because they all do the same art for a fandom or whatever. Or even outside of popularity, sometimes two artists decide to draw something from a 70s comic and they both go up the same month and suddenly "HOW DARE YOU COPY ME NO WAY THIS OBSCURE FICTION WAS THOUGHT UP BY YOU TOO!"

Just ignore it. Draw whatever you want, in whatever style you want.

The most "sustainable" thing you can do to stay marketable is to have your fundamentals down and keep improving on them. And when I say that I don't mean basic figure drawing or whatever, I mean in what ever subject you take interest in that isn't necessarily trendy, but what you like to make. Trends recycle anyway so you might as well have a baseline for the quality of work you like to make. That's sustainable.

Either nuke it or just make a new account. Couple options:

>don't link it or share any photos through the old one as that might make it clear it's the same style/rendering and thus, just you using a new account
>could just switch over and ignore anyone complaining about not doing a certain fandom anymore [this will keep your follower count and you won't go from scratch, so you have automatic engagement] while also scrubbing your page of old work you don't care about anymore and saving them externally

simplest would be to either move onto a new one without announcing to your old account or straight up nuke and start new.

Hell no. Most of the artists I follow have one or a few characters they love drawing. They experiment with different mediums and styles while using their favorites for inspiration and improve quickly. Treat the characters you love like a muse.

Sure there was some clique-ness and it did get harder to stand out as the site got more popular through the 2000s and early 2010s but compared to places like Instagram and even Twitter, it still a fun place to connect with like minded people.

For me, I still use DeviantART. The site isn't so much "dead" but it's lot less active than it used to be. Whenever I post my art there, I still get quite a few likes but I don't really get all that may comments compared to the earlier years of DeviantART before it became Eclipse.

Unfortunately anon, DeviantART is the only site of it's kind that offers the customization options that (let's be honest) WE all love and there just hasn't been a new dedicated art social media platform that has the userbase that DeviantART had.

How do you stay away from the fetish community on deviant art these days? I don't mind seeing some, but before I left, fetish art was pretty much all I saw on the front page.

No. 1335487

I'm not sure to be honest. I've been on DeviantArt for 2 decades and I feel like because I never clicked on the weird fetish art in my past, it must've had affected my algorithm or something because I hardly see any fetish art at all unless I scroll for too long and then I come across something like inflation or weight gain…

I think what might help is just click and view non-fetish pictures and it might in theory, get the site to stop recommending fetish art to you.

No. 1335518

I use Deviantart regularly and I only pay attention to the people I follow and my feed page is made up from their art or similar pieces. I almost never look at the front page and I don't see the fetish art anymore. Deviantart is great if you find your own little community.

Agree, the doomposting around it never made any sense to me. I don't know how to explain it fully but you know how there are little details in art that makes art unique to the artist which is the main reason artists typically get commissioned? I think it's going to be a long while before it can do that. One thing I will say though for stuff like art contests an all that I hope they ban usage of ai. It's fine to use it for ideas for help with ideas for composition like you said but solely using it and turning it in is retarded.

I'm not so worried about my art being effected, but ffs, can these fucking scrotes stop making programs to create artificial CP that realistic?

No. 1336474

There's a difference. Painting and photography are two different things. Unless you splice images in photography, you can't get the same surrealism and art that painting can do. Sculpting, you can kind of do, but not well. There are molds and 3D printing. However, I can see basic digital art being replaced with AI, like companies using the program and feeding it prompts for designs. They will still need to hire artists to alter or get more specific details, but there are already artists who edit the renders anyway. I think it'll become smaller teams and harder big jobs to find.

No. 1336541

Photography is a really poor example, the issue with AI is that it steamrolls the value of intellectual property. They're a bit shit for now but there is billions being invested to the tech. I only see it as a matter of time until they're able to imitate 90% of artstyles. You might apply for a job and then an employer feeds your portfolio to an algorithm. For big name artists they'll still have their "brand" but that's not how most of us are scraping by.

No. 1336726

I don't think NFTs and AI has any actual influence on the art scene, the former is already obsolete laughing stock and the latter is just for fun really. But when it comes to audience's short attention span, unless you don't care about people interacting with your art at all, there are no good alternatives. Everything with an actual userbase is relying on fast content consumption and feeding the algorithm. For connections I believe the only thing left would be discord or facebook groups, but finding actually good communities there is like looking for a needle in a haystack. I think your best shot would be finding something relatively local to you - and by extension, smaller than anything global - so there's more chance of building actual connections with people.

Agree. For AI to replace artists needs a level of human intelligence that is just not there. What separates good art from mediocre art is the intention and the details that the artist puts and the Ai can't replicate it without being a fully artificial human, and that's entirely another thing. If they create artificial human I assure you that replacing niche twitter artists would be the last of their priorities kek you're not that important
Ai art is just an excuse to develop AI, just like it was AI chess players last decade. It isn't a conspiracy against artfags or chess players, is just proof for investors that their little billon-dollars toy can do something. Once the AIs are ready they aren't going to be artists or chess players, actually smart human-like ais are going to be in military service an other shit kek.
Ai developers are not that retarded, they aren't trying to obsolete the jobs that need the human factor, like art. They're trying to automate the jobs where the human factor is irrelevant like the military or corporate jobs. Art is just the medium they use to work towards that goal, that is further than it seems.

The only reason you should be worried is the precedence of mass consumption of art that’s going to be enabled with AI. I just made a huge connection towards Andy Warhol and this whole new motivation to crush the confidence/importance of human artists. He was not an artist, he was a convincing businessman that was able to generate and mass create images that looked uncanny using upcoming technology to do so which at his time was screen-printing. The quality and personal craftsmanship of the art takes a back seat to the production to fit the taste of the laymen who don’t even know how to use their own creativity (and properly identify it in others kek) in the first place. Unrelated but I think this is just a consequence of industrialization, expanding technology and lack of values/morals a lot of countries with these technologies have. Creative moids have a tendency to devalue important things just to make a point. This is no different, coincidentally the arts and crafts was associated with women and femininity and slowly it was mashed into this unholy ego project for moids to convince to the rest of society that is indeed “serious business”, they also did this with the culinary arts and turned it into a soul-sucking business venture to collect imaginary accolades and praise for their greedy parasitic brains. I hate Andy Warhol, I hate technology, I fucking hate scrotes, Valerie Solanos did nothing wrong, nothing new has been said.

Considering eps are recorded weeks in advance, I think it was just a weird coincidence and an unfortunate accident, it happens. But it really does suck that it happened for a video specifically about their different styles, I get they didn't want to waste the work because of the error but idk… I think they are all overworking themselves and errors like this happen more frequently when people are too rushed to pay attention. Having Jacob in particular be overworking is ironically what I think is stagnating him most.

I like the idea of the humanization of a giant maxipad because I find that actually very cool, but the fact she also drew this weird loli figure and then intentionally altered the anatomy of the drawing so it showed her underwear is weird. It's not supposed to work like that from that angle, it feels forced / on purpose. At first glance you might think "wow very cool and feminist, a giant maxipad!" specially because well, she put the ♀ symbol somewhere in the pic, but after really thinking about the rest of her art pieces, I think this artist is either fetichizing girlhood and innocence or perhaps she's just misguided and someone made her think this was okay. I unfortunatelly have seen other similar japanese and western female artists utilize this type of style thinking they're doing something cool and progressive (maybe in a misguided way) but it comes off as fap fodder for gross coomer moids. Intentional or not, these artists need to surround themselves with better people and better art so they don't produce such cognitive dissonant pieces. She's also using a literal children's backpak (randoseru) to draw some anime girl similar to the one on the canvas on it and take in account actual children use them to go to school. It would be cooler if she criticized these things instead of creating more of them. It saddens me that thanks to the other pieces she's exhibiting, now the big menstrual pad is probably going to be used by some menstruation fetish moid as masturbation material instead of delivering any ground breaking message. She was so close yet very, very extremely far.

How fantastic/shitty is Huion? Specifically, the Inspiroy series.
I attended college for illustration/animation 5 years ago, and it seemed that Huion was comparable to Wacom as far as screen tablets go; but I'm a hobby artist now and my body can't handle the screen tablets anymore.
I sold my Cintiq and I'm debating whether to get the Inspiroy Giano or the Wacom Intuos.
The Giano is tempting for the size/price, but I've been seeing a lot of bad reviews for Huion in recent years.

Think about how many mediocre artists are taken seriously and get commissions, or even work as professional artists like Rob Liefeld. Your art is infinitely better than theirs, you don't need to waste time fixing mistakes that no one will notice or even care about if they notice. No need to be a perfectionist all the time, it just gets in the way of success.

It literally doesn't matter how accurate your anatomy is as long as it looks good enough for the target audience, and it sounds like your anatomy is so good already and you care enough about improving that you don't need to worry about stagnating or regressing. Relax a little.

I rarely think it's a problem, sure it might bum the referenced artist out but plagiarism is the highest form of flattery as they say. You don't own an art style and if you stand out people can and will copy what makes your style unique. The only time I'm actually bothered by it is by all the budget Sakimichan clones because you know they're doing it just to sell it for a quick coomer buck so well and that's not being appreciative of her work, it's just cynical.

No. 1342869

I think nitpicking stylized anatomy is a crutch beginners use and it happens a lot in this thread as well because it's the only "absolute" mistake any novice can point out. So many artists are overconcerned with their anatomy to the point they forget about how human eye perceives movement and depth and how they need to use exaggerated shapes to create an illusion. Even if the anatomy looks "wonky" it's not that big of a deal especially in the context of a graphic novel where you just quickly eyeball through the panels without really paying that much attention to the details of the artwork. Broken anatomy becomes mostly a problem with illustrations, not story telling artwork.

No. 1342935

No. 1343126

To be clear when you say screen tablet you mean ones that are portable and not desktop only? The only Huion I had was second hand, desktop only and worked well but had some fllaws: small parallax and the monitor colors were busted (either it was Huion itself or it was old and couldn’t match up to my other monitors) so I had to mirror it on another screen while I worked.

However comparing the two I preferred a desktop to screen tablet because my iPad is good but makes my hand cramp and leaves little room to use my full arm when drawing. Desktop though is always going to run large, a bit hot and have cables to manage. For a hobbyist I’d say get a desktop screen because I see a lot of mid grade and up pros use that as their main and sometimes an iPad for on the go.
Kek this is my current setup and yeah the battery sucks and the pen charging is annoying but I can’t upgrade right now. A refurbished or used newer iPad would be better than your picrel.

I’m bitter too. I want to use procreate on other platforms but they’re locked into iPad. I’ll check out Infinite painter too, I haven’t heard of it before.

Places like TikTok are a great example of how a song, fully generated, can be popular. Miku and the rest just sound terrible.

I think her work is like splatter-paint-on-a-canvas-and-call-it-a-day type art where only one person should be doing it, otherwise it becomes boring and oversaturated, so I think she's the only artist who should be drawing the same pretty girls over and over since it seems like she at least tries to put life into her work.

No. 1346719

Other anon pretty much covered it, I have one because my style is lineart based and it's hell using either intuos tablets or iPads to do the sort of work that I make. It's also worth it for me because the amount of money I've made from having one has paid for itself several times over. If someone has more of a painterly style or has a workflow that works really well without one there's absolutely no need to get one, it's not like these things have a learning curve beyond "use pen on screen and wysiwyg" if someone wants to push the whole industry standard meme.

NTA but the only really interesting thing about this image is the girl and her reflection, and maybe the stuff on and around her mirror. Everything else just feels like negative space. There's nothing interesting in the foreground, and she could've added a more interesting poster on that wall, or an open window, or something. Definitely not the worst piece of hers though.

No. 1346801

I don't think drawing minorities necessity equates to pandering, maybe she just genuinely felt like drawing this, but it does bother me when people want brownie points for it despite putting in no real effort. For instance, this woman is colored weirdly ashy, making me wonder if she's supposed to be black at all. Also she's just drawn really stiffly.

This discussion is stupid in general, an ai can only be programmed to be what we want it to be, it'll never be as spontaneous and unpredictable as the human mind. It'll produce the same things over and over, and people will inevitably gravitate towards art with a human touch and real imagination behind it. This cycle will repeat itself however many times it needs to until everyone learns their lesson.

Honestly learning how to render traditionally helps significantly.

Lmao the user speaks like a person who really doesn’t enjoy art for what it is, but for the profit it can potentially bring. I think AI would be good for a type of generator to spark ideas for concepts, but jfc these guys are too blind to see why AI work can just be plain ugly or why people in the first place are iffy about it

This kind of reminds me of that trend a while back where people had an AI animate using premade stills/preexisting animation, saying that it looked “smoother”, but it still looked like ass

No. 1347495

It really depends on the style of rendering that you want. I would try referencing From artists that you admire and see what you like about their colours,lighting, ect. and try to incorporate that into your own work.

But I didn't say anything about white washing? I just called loish's coloring ashy.

Anyone remember Kiwi Byrd? Her speed paints used to show up all the time in my YouTube recommended in the early 2010s because she drew Steven universe stuff, and that's when that show really started to kick off. Idk how I feel about her stuff now because it does have that blobby "calarts" (for lack of a better term) look to it, but the rendering makes it bearable, and she actually does incorporate sharper shapes into her work. She's a themlet though, so keep that in mind in case you got excited I just recommended you a cool new female artist.

Having prior experience would help with any art course, it's mainly about the technique and medium.

But if you're wondering if you have to be a perfect artist first, then the answer is no.

I’d say that AI is to human workers more like cars are to horses. Yeah horses still exist, and they still carry people/pull things, but it’s on an entirely different scale and with very different motivations behind it. I don’t think the question is “will human intellectual/creative work get largely replaced with AI work,” but, “will this empower the workers who get replaced to have more free time or will it allow the people on top to grind everyone else’s faces into the mud?”

I will tell you this, though. My desk job is made like 5x more efficient than it was 40 years ago due to computers alone. But I’m not making 5x more, and I’m not working 1/5 as much. 40 years ago my position would make enough to support myself, a whole family, and a house, but today it’s not even enough to afford rent in a studio apartment. My country produces way more wealth than it did back then but the average citizen has way less of it, while still working just as hard if not harder. I think it’s naïve to think that when AI condenses the job market en masse that it won’t just lead to more people getting taken advantage of for the benefit of the few people on top.

Anon, same! I love drawing but I'm more of a hobbyist. I try not to think about getting more followers/engagements but it's so hard to ignore the lure of social media popularity game. I also tried my best to make friends with other artists from the same fandom and always leave comments/likes/reblogs but they never do the same. I think people nowadays are just too busy to make genuine connection with each other. Funny thing is when big artists post something, my mutuals always leave a comment or try to be friends with them. Social media is now more for social climbing than making friends. Sometimes I wish I was into other hobbies like sports or taking up musical instruments, at least those hobbies are less depressing. But I'm too deep in the art hobby to back out.

Same anon. I’m in a community where there aren’t a lot of artists, but I really want to call out this one person who appears to be tracing/colour picking images of real life and fictional pieces- but I’m questioning whether or not I’m just wrong.
Normally I wouldn’t bother, but this person is making commissions out of tracing images and has made a name out of herself a being a good “realistic” artist in the community. Some people in the community have tried to out her, but her fans/other people keep pushing the idea that she isn’t very obviously tracing. It’s so frustrating. She even made a video on her process, which includes a close up on the canvas without her layers in the frame, ofc

No. 1350715

If you care enough I'm sure you could bust her by taking the images she's traced from and prove it. Or publicly declaring she's tracing and saying "well if she's not then she should prove it"

No. 1350724

That’s the thing, I’m kind of placed in an awkward position where I can’t just out another person in the circle. Like, she’s been getting more attention too because she’s been piggy-backing some of the bigger names(who also aren’t artists), so as soon as you mention something negative, they’ll ban you.

Also for the images idk where they come from, so I can’t just say that “oh this is a copy of this” even if her colouring/artstyle is completely different from the head, to the body, to the background.

mobile phones haven't replaced professional photographers because there is a level of skill necessary to produce high quality photos that isn't just a picture of food or something of the grandkids to send to families on a postcard.

>when was the last time you paid for art
I pay for prints, charms, keychains, etc. when I go to conventions. I recently bought a hundred dollar art book from one of my favorite mangakas.

you can argue that art in magazines was still being used for entertainment. Plenty of people still paint murals or just draw for themselves. plenty of YT artists just draw and share the process because they want to.

even if mobile cameras became as good as dslrs, there is still an art process behind photography. Understanding lighting, composition, etc. is why professional photographers still exist. It's hard to get a job because the field is oversaturated, not because of someone having an iphone camera.

You’ll probably find that trope more in romance written by or for women. Homely ugly men are more humanized and given more character than a homely looking women, women who are dressed modestly and are introverted are basically invisible or in submissive marriages. I’ve also noticed that these types of artists and writers have an aversion towards loser women with nothing realistically going for them, even a nerd basket case woman are given some sort of hobby or quirk but I’ve never seen good books or comics that show this dark reality for a lot of women. Remember that movie where the “ugly” woman takes off her glasses and suddenly she’s beautiful? Let’s be real no one knows how to properly write women kek. Hope you find what you’re looking for nonna

i had similar feelings when i started drawing again after a few year break but you just kind of have to force yourself to get back into it, i'm sure a lot of the knowledge you've acquired during that time will come back. a drawing break can also be helpful as you might look at things a bit differently. every time i came back to drawing i had a bit of a 'breakthrough'. it was easier to more objectively look at my art and analyze what i still had to practice more and what i was lacking. in some ways it was also easier for myself to push myself out of my comfort zone since i didn't really have one anymore anyway. i'm sure it will be fine nonna, don't give up!

I'm relatively good at art but I get almost no engagement because I don't have a following or really advertise myself or even attempt to play the algorithm, so while it's truly disheartening to get only like 10 likes tops on a piece you worked hard on it's just something you have to learn to live with. If you're looking for thousands of likes on your art you need to be a well connected and pandering, buy the social engineering required is hard work and pays off only by sheer chance. Nothing's guaranteed. Work on your own attitude towards your art and how to make it rewarding outside of social media, for me it's rather a way to express myself in ways that words can't than trying desperately to grow a following.

You don't need to worry about it anon, everything is inspired by other artwork and it'll be a lot harder to improve if you can't look at anyone's material.

Went back to it, realised that even though it was just a few months I had to start all over again.

I've come to realize so many "successful" online artists do just straight up trace poses and anatomy that I'm at the point I'm considering just doing it anyway for some cheap commissions.

On a personal level if I paid someone to do a comm for me and I was happy with the results, I wouldn't give a singular fuck if someone took a pic and lined it up and showed the pose was traced. Sure if it was the entire design, but even look at all those comic book artists for marvel etc who might as well just be photoshopping a stolen photo into the comic lmao..

I'll say something very cliche - if you don't start now, in five years you'll look back at this day and once again regret the progress you could have made since then.

You can’t do anything about it now so it’s just best to start up. Don’t put pressure on yourself to make it look good. Just focus on drawing a little bit each day.

I know this dead horse has been beaten, but think of it this way: the people that fuck with and engage with AI art weren't going to be your clients anyway. Your job is to provide a custom service in which your client can decide even the tiniest details. If you can provide that with privacy, adequate speed, and good communication, people will still want to buy from you. Maybe I'm just old-school but I've heard the phrase "you can teach a monkey how to draw" too often to be scared… Like, ideally art for you would be about personal enjoyment and when it comes to a job you bring something new to the table.

Is there a way to make your tiktok only accesible to adults? I don't make or post 18+ content at all in any platform whatsoever, but the thought of some random kid looking at my content makes me feel so weird.

No matter if you censor or not anon, you will probably have some kind of minor audience, when there’s a will there’s a way for those bastards.
But the Best thing that you can do is tag your stuff if you can, block any apparent minors that may follow you, and (maybe) make it apparent that you don’t want minors to follow you

Really love this perspective anon- so true

No. 1354322

Sorry if this doesn't belong here but I would like some advice.
This popular artist sent me a dm asking for an art trade and we both agreed, 2 weeks after, I delivered my part and she said that she'll start her's soon because she was busy with work. Understandable.
However, 1 year and half has passed and last time I heard from her is that she had the sketch, I responded something like "can't wait to see it" hoping she would send it but nothing, she replied with a "me too" (????)

However, she keeps uploading art she makes for herself, and even other art trades she's made in the month.
I've noticed she doesn't likes/comments my post anymore, not that I care, but it's kinda suspicious.

Did I got fucking scammed?

No. 1354342

Yes, don't do art trades.

No. 1354344

I wouldn't say scammed since there's no money involved, but she definitely broke her part of the trade and is probably trying to avoid interacting with you in hopes you'll just forget it. It's shitty, but it happens.

If you're petty you can always post your part of the trade and tag it with something like "my part of the art trade with (name) from last year, can't wait to see hers!" if you wanna make it public, kek. To avoid drama you should probably just let it go.

No. 1354355

It happens often with art trades anon. I'd follow the advice of the anon above.

No. 1354399


Tiktok is the last place I'd be if you wanted a majority adult audience if I were you. Another anon suggested stating you don't want to interact with minors but it's been my observation that stating such a thing just makes them more insistent shitheels because you specifically told them not to.

Don't waste your time, look elsewhere. Short form video is shit anyway, you can't really futureproof it or stop someone from just reuploading your shit.

No. 1354407


I don't do art trades with people who aren't my friends, even if they are popular. Popular artists want free art just as much as smaller artists do and I think a lot of people forget that. The only difference is they have the privileged option of casually forgetting you exist in a sea of admirers.

You might as well drop this one, nona, they aren't worth waiting around for. Hopefully it's a lesson learned going forward.

No. 1354416

Sometimes I'm so tempted to add kind of like a list of people who owe me something and add her username but I try to be as professional as possible, so I avoid drama and shit.

The faces are such a focal point to ball jointed dolls you think he would take time to give them such extravagant looks but instead it's just his oversimplified cartoony makeup style that he uses in his drawings. Except the dolls dont have such oversimplified features and the makeup looks bad.

I'm a hobby artist whose been on a forever break. I also dabble in 3D work (primarily 3dsmax) and my s/o does it professionally for vidya design (so can offer me advice/help if I need it).

I love dress up games. I also have a weird lingering fixation from my youth on those otome type games with anime bishounen.

Do you think theres a market if I made a mobile game that's a cross between an otome and a dress up game? Like, it's a dating/story with bishi love interests (hell maybe I can add female love interests and male MCs too idc), but you can customize your MC/get lots of different dress up options etc?

That's kind of what I hate about them too/part of what gave me the inspiration. It's really not hard to add basic customizations on a technical level so it never made sense to me why it's always so neglected in these games. I hate that I get put off to play one of them based purely on disliking the char designs, you know?

I kinda figure I'll offer lots of customization for those who want to utilize it, then let those who just want to play a basic otome have a "default" option so it's not forced upon them. I do think I want the focus/gimmick to be on that there's a wide variety of options/keep updating with more vs a one-off style game

I'm not really familiar with "dream daddy" but I feel like I understand the idea from seeing it on random YouTube channels. Maybe I should look into its features a bit for more inspo as it seems to indeed be successful

No. 1355770

Yeah, I'll shamelessly admit I miss the early 2000s days of hyped up doll makers everywhere haha. And the time before all these games were just gachas/paywalls.

Regardless of how clean, and experienced AI may get with generating art, it still won't be able to replace artists with unique styles, and it can't create artwork with actual "soul". The websites that it mostly sources art from will be oversaturated with generic pieces, meaning it will generally put out generic kitsch shit.

right, but some make images by combining more sources than others. People are mad at this one because it's obviously relying heavily on one or two base images to hold up the whole composition, and making minute changes to the character over top it. AIs that put things together from more sources, while arguably less controversial since it's less like "tracing", tend to look like soup because the AI can't parse how to put them all together in a way that makes sense.
