A containment thread for all the salty artfags of lotsoflovecow.farm!
- Ask about art supplies, but not too often as it will make the digital artists ree
- Discuss grievances about the art tuber community, but don’t be fooled by any that come to ask for our opinion; they will throw a shit fit because they work oh so hard and we’re oh so mean (but also we’re just haters haha :) so our opinions don’t bother them)
- Waffles may never be criticised because she has an illness and sick people cant be bullied on imageboards
- creepshowart must never be spoken of because that's giving her attention, which makes the farmers ree that this particular attention-seeking cow might seek attention and bring up lolcow like every other discussed cow has.
- Everyone is beautiful and we are above the discussion of appearance unlike the other nonnies!
- Yes, we’re all sick of Arteza and SkillShare.
- Yes, Copics are worth it if you use markers. And yes, they are rediculously overpriced.
- No, this isn’t a TRA safe space, so don’t ree when you see the word tranny. And no, some retard discussing their pronouns doesn’t count as art milk, you turbo autist.
- If you have beginner questions, want to know what art books to start with, or generally need to know how to begin with art, use these links

Welcome art tuber, enjoy your visit - we hope you find enough content to hit that 10 minute mark, because we are VERY empathetic to how it’s oh so hard to actually create artwork and have a personality in order to create your own content for your channel xoxo

There’s no problem with anime or fantasy, it becomes an issue once it’s a bulk of your portfolio

Make sure to include sketches so they can see your problem solving, including finished pieces with good composition/colour choice/technical skill is a good idea as it showcases your ability to spend large amounts of time on a piece, also make sure to showcase pieces that really represent who you are as an artist - for my portfolio I made sure to include a handful of finished pieces + sketches that revolves around children’s illustration as that’s what I want to work in, and ultimately that’s what really impressed them and landed me a spot in a prestigious school. I’d also strongly recommend including background work as most people’s portfolios will be filled to the brim with figurative pieces, it’ll help you stand out

No. 461177

color work is important, but mostly drawing from observation is the big huge thing that they harp on. If you can find somewhere to do figure drawing sessions that'll help a lot, and try to limit how much you use photographs. I'd also say try and do a self portrait. There are also certain schools that have required drawings, and be aware that it's not simply drawing what is asked of the prompts. I know RISD requires a bicycle drawing, but it needs to be an INTERESTING bicycle drawing, not just a picture of a whole bicycle.

Unpopular art salt opinion: as someone pro fanart im so sick of artists doingg nothing but fanmerch for clout & profit now. fanart is great stepping stone or hobby but i hate artists who became unambitious and ccomplacent. ones with no plans other than keep making a living off fanart merch. i love fanart but social media has turned these artists into overrsaturated & entitled glorified bootleggers. i hope legal banhammer fucks them up one day because the salt will be amazing

No. 461549


I agree. I always closely associate being an artist with designing and coming up with ideas and worldbuilding, i know it is not always the case but for me it is all closely related. When i see people whose entire career is making money of mainstream copyrighted characters in random poses i think is morally fraught and kinda boring creatively. Its something thats better as a hobby for fun, you know, something you would do as a fan. I think it would be very hard to police thought, most companies turn a blind eye to fan artists because they kida do free publicity for their products and because they will always come across as the bad guys if they start shutting down people lawsuits who most are not getting that wealthy anyways. (Except the notable exceptions)

Sorry to blogpost but when i was like 15 and found deviantart i knew jack about weeb pop culture so i assumed most of the characters i saw were original creations and found it so amazing, it was very dissapointing when i realized that no, they were all from shows and IPs i didn't know yet, so i started looking for and following original content creators instead, avoiding fandoms was a pretty good choice for me.

No. 461610


all she's talking about in the video is doing the no reference series because she basically uses references as a crutch and discards a lot of concepts because she can't find the reference photo that fits.

she even says she still references in the video and another reason she's doing it is so she can see what she needs to work on.

tbf it isn't a bad idea. doing works without using references gives you a way of having to formulate concepts without relying on pictures that look like them or fit and so you can know what aspects you need to practice and study more.

No. 461611


A lot of IPs don't really care anymore because they realized that it does nothing but alienate their customer base. If the government or whatever bans the sell of fanart it could fuck up a lot of other shit too or if it becomes a state issue rather than a civil one.

Most creators don't really care unless they're indie, and that's because of indie creators do their own merch and selling it whereas other large IPs would rather not waste lawyer fees going after someone who makes a fraction of what they do and doesn't cause legal issues for them like actual bootleggers.

No. 461630

even if ips "don't really care anymore" or the artist is "better and more creative" doesn't mean it's OK. if you can make a living going to cons and selling online you should pay for license. if you "just want to make live other characters" work with ips or get a job as merchandise designer. i doubt many artist even try to contact ip owners. i'm OK when artist make limited runs or price to pay production cost. if your career, living & brand is so dependent on fan merch, make it into legal business. many choose not to or dont care or try because it means less money even though theyre supposed to be fans. all in my opinion.

glad i'm not the only one who feels this. many artists complain about "exposure for payment" while they justify seelling fan merch as free exposure. i have more respect for artists who draw fanart but direct popularity into original merch

No. 461641


I agree, Artist Alley's used to be a place where one could share their passions for their favorite shows and earning a bit of pocket money was just a bonus, now it exploded into something where people make their living out of it and it shows. A lot of artists draw prints of characters they don't even know anything about just because 'they're popular and sell well'. It feels so overwhelming having so many artist sell merch of the same 3/4 popular shows that are hot at the moment. At this point it's like a blessing when I see people who sell stuff of more obscure shows or even are confident enough to just do purely original stuff. I've seen enough times whenever a new Pokémon is released I see button and even pin designs next day on social media / etsy. It's offputting.

I am so tired of glorified concept artists technically good but with no good ideas, no innovation, nothing but good rendering and anatomy. You're not a "concept artist", you're a good painter, at best. Lots of people can learn how to paint, but good ideas are harder to find.

No. 461647


Its true. Most of the time people call "concept art " things that are are not concept art at all. But i personally also think concept art itself is a bit too glorified and lost some meaning once it became a buzzword, concept artists are not always doing very creative work or coming up with ideas themselves.

No. 461652

Concept art, which is to make multiple concepts of someones idea for 3d animators to use, is often confused for splash art, art used on loading screens, and promotinal art. Iirc most concept artist get stuck drawing lame stuff like rocks or tiny details, like guns and key cards.

That quote may have come from Trent Kaniuga. He does a lot of informational videos about industry work, what it entails and how to break in.

You should go to more indie conventions, anon. There’s a bunch of good ones year-round that aren’t as specifically aimed at fanworks. SPX is this weekend, for example, and it’s entirely about creators who do more original content.

No. 461694

Anime convention artist alleys did not begin that way, they were created by fandoms for fandoms and their customers go expecting fan art. Comicket is the largest comic convention in the world and consists of 99% fan made comics that the IP holders themselves scout for artists to hire for their own publications. Meanwhile in America the same IPs are recycled over and over again by the same three companies lol. I find it funny that the old school comic artists get triggered people are selling Superman and Spider-Man Prints because THEY actuallly WORKED for Marvel and DC,,,meanwhile they’ve never made an actual original concept themselves and made a living on someone else’s world and characters. It’s cute that they can’t seem to see the hypocrisy.

No. 461711

That's why copyright, trademarks, and all that shit are all civil issues. The "legal banhammer" on selling the IP works of something else is between you and the IP holder. If the IP holder cares, you're done for. If they don't care, it's free game. If you let the government or state decide what is or isn't okay for this type of thing, you've basically gutted most forms of copyright, IP, and trademark freedoms and whatnot. That's why they're classified as civil issues, not state ones.

Also, there's a difference between "exposure for payment" for someone trying to get you to draw their uber good amazing idea that's just BOUND to rake in money and they want you to work FOR them vs just doing something of your own free will and profiting off of print sales that leads to exposure for both you and the original IP. One is just slave labor and the other is free will lmao. in fact, many comic IPs scout for people based around doing fan art because they can see how someone will legit draw their characters, which leads to them getting hired in the industry. Sure it doesn't happen all the time but large companies have learned to profit off of a fanbase like a relatively symbiotic relationship.

I hope they release the videos of panels but Lightbox Expo this weekend was great for artists like concept artists talking about their method and how it’s not super illustration. EG: Mingjue Helen Chen is an art director at Disney that all the animation nerds cream themselves over because her style is the Disney house style but she shared some of her work for wreck it Ralph 2 on Twitter that’s anything but the character work people think she does. A lot of the talks there with concept artists too were about research and how they iterate, and while they also did have demos for a lot of artists, it’s a better look at the industry than what armchair artists think it is. The “art of” books tend to skew people’s perception that illustration is a big part of it when it really isn’t, like sometimes they’ll bring a drawing into full render JUST for the art book

And thats for the animation where you would expect certain styles of artwork to be more "drawn", a lot of pipelines have close to no drawing at all. Is all photobash and 3d bash done very quickly just to get the idea and 300 iterations of it that you would not really want to show anyone outside of the pre production context. Sometimes there is an illustrator in between the concept team and the 3D team re drawing some of the important elements from the rough concept work a bit more cleanly and schematically before passing them to the modelers and often that illustration is the "concept art" that you would see in the book or in the artstation portfolios.

No. 461971

Is it just me or did her anatomy just got worse and worse over time? Or was she always this bad?

No. 462008

Yep. Concept artists make concept art, production leader greenlights it, some of it goes to the illustrator, production leader greenlights it, then it goes to the 3D modeling team, thus concluding pre-production. And once pre-production is over, the concept artists and the illustrators, who are typically freelancers, are let go unless they are needed again if something in production changes, or if you are a flim like the most recent Lord of the Rings that were doing pre- and actual production at the same time.

Commonly where artists get stuck in 'pre-production hell' is where the illustrator and concept artists aren't communicating enough with the project leader to see if the 3D team can actually make what is being created, a-la Mass Effect: Andromeda.

So, although concept artists are important, you will never find a stable job, are likely to remain a freelancer, and if you want to make artbook art, you will then be the illustrator, which is in even less demand because you don't need as big of a team to only touch up 1/4 of the actual concepted work. All the little concept-wannabes are better off drawing for children's books or going commercial and being part of a comic book production line. Or just learn 3D modeling. Get good enough in that, and people are hiring everywhere.

This reminds me of an artist who used to get on my nerves back in my 2011ish deviantart days. Jerica Winters - https://www.deviantart.com/jericawinters
Nothing super milky about her per se, but she was/is a huge womanchild.
All she ever makes is fanart and it's all she is ever known for. She was pretty popular off of it back in the day (her e-fame has worn off over the years) mostly because of a Daily Deviation award she got, but her art is some of the worst I've ever seen. She loves to draw a lot of action scenes and action characters but all of her art is boxy, stiff, and her anatomy is atrocious. Everyone she draws looks like an uncomfortable same-faced linebacker shrouded in lens flares.

I remember her FAQ on her profile also used to have a part where she talked about how artists will never make any money and you can't make her believe otherwise, unless you have a car and house you bought solely with money you made from making art. I wanted to get screencaps of it but when I search her DA on the Wayback machine, it doesn't seem to go past 2019, long after she deleted all of that cringe.

And if her account really is that old and she still calls herself a hobbyist, then I'm actually surprised her art looks this good. She isn't stagnating either, the Geralt drawing is from 2018, but this Logan was from 2017.

This is more of a me thing, but I find the evolution of the insta./tumblr/kawii artist style to be interesting. Most of them can't actually draw in the traditional sense, but they all learned a bunch of tips and tricks to make their art look decent or passable. By the use of glitch effects, pastel tutorials, texture overlay, and with every other trick in the book they can turn a meh sketch into passable. All those artist in Op's post wouldn't look half as good as a sketch, specifically the top left.

I also think a lot of people lie about their age on instagram/tumblr just to get more people to be like 'gosh, you're so young and talented!'. It's almost like they're more into art for bragging about how quick it was to learn rather than for the art itself, and it often shows in their abuse of photoshop tools and filters instead of actual knowledge and care for the craft.

>Kim Jung Gi

technically he is probably the best at drawing in the world. It is amazing to watch him draw, yet i don't really care that much for his artworks tbh, the show of craftmanship and the quantity of work he does is what it is really impressive But he is not my favorite artist when it comes to the actual pieces and i don't mean just because of his sexual work, i actually don't mind very racy artwork myself when its done well, its just that after looking at his sketchbooks i end up forgetting about them almost instantly.

I think a lot of people should stop self flagellating after comparing themselves to him. Every other kid now thinks that drawing without reference without thumbnails or anything using only brush pens is some sort of industry standard, no wonder they get discouraged fast, it really isn't at all, thats why he is so unique in the first place.

>"I became a good artist in a few months"

>I also think a lot of people lie about their age

Online artists lie, a lot, and i mean A LOT! the age one is probably the most common, some artists will try several times to come up with online personas until one of them starts pulling followers, almost nothing on the internet is really as spontaneus it seems.

Perfectly sure? A few years? Try a few decades at least, we don't even have a PRECURSORY to brain implant/enhancement technology yet, just fiction and speculation. Hell, we don't even know how to cure alzheimers yet, after decades of trying! you don't need to worry about brainchip cyborgs stealing your art job anytime soon.

We're more likely to see artificial intelligence doing that in our lifetime, at least that is in an infant stage and being actively developed. But even that is in ridiculously early stages as far as art goes, mostly just barely amusing gimmicks and unusable auto-coloring.

I personally know the meme: "you don't need an expensive tablet yada yadah" "look at me doing pro work with a 10 yr old chinese tablet and PS 7.0, its the artist not the tools, git gud scrub" and i get it because i am poor and i have had to manage with what i have since forever but drawing on a piece of plastic while looking at a screen has always felt like garbage and uncomfortable to me, even after years of doing it every day i can't possibly get used to it and i find it un intuitive, if i spent some time drawing traditionally and then i have to use the tablet i feel so bad, a screen tablet or an Ipad is simply so much better in every way and they are the proper tools for digital drawing and painting, over prices as they may be. Non screen tablets are only a step above drawing with a mouse imo, but i guess everyone is different and this is just from my own experience, i like drawing in traditional so much better and all my studies were in traditional anyways but all my revenue comes from digital work, i like the tools that mimic traditional the most even when its not quite the same.

I actually met a man who developed an AI that creates music a while back, we had a multiple hour discussion on how this would impact the art world - it’s a rather unsettling reality, knowing that there is an AI that can create music at the push of a button. Commercial music would be in trouble as there’d be something on the market that can create you endless musical pieces at a fraction of the cost of a freelancer or established musician. You’d no longer have to deal with producers or any middle men, it’d be a very tempting offer

Commercially speaking, AI shouldn’t be disregarded as easily as it is. It’s fast growing and while people will always want ‘soul’ in artwork, that is not the case for things like concept artwork, marketing materials, book/album/disc covers, pretty much anything that can currently be relied upon as a stable stream of income

But it is concept artists own fault too though because those are standards they built for themselves, while other artists and professionals have been trying to move away from wagie mentality and work for hire grind they embrace it and make a culture of it, specially with the video game industry becoming big. They are probably the professional field with the most self deprecating market logic, they compete in doing the most quantity of work fastest and complaining the least in a market where saturation cheapens the price of the product, and they they make a point to cut as many corners as possible to produce a lot more work even faster and for cheaper which also lowers the entry level and opens the floodgates to more unskilled workers who will charge even less. Its a race to the bottom. No wonder every other concept artist that entered the industry when the videogame industry culture was coming into vogue is now burnout and opening youtube channels to diversify their income once they get tired of drawing 3000 chair iterations a month just to pay rent.

>drawing for free and then letting the other person still call it a "commission"
Even I wasn't this dense at 15 years of age lol. Any time you draw for someone for free after they ask for you to draw something for them, it is a request. There's no due date for a request, it is gift art. You need to strongly emphasize both of these things to your requester, don't try to play along like it's still a commission. Madame went way overboard with the histrionics, but trying to make a credit/shoutout into a "payment" for a "commission" is something that would make r/forexposure fucking reel in their seat.
Don't do it, folks.

That said, I don't know what crawled up Madame's ass and died but the story should've ended after the credit ordeal ended. I get the gist here that this blew up the way it did because Madame didn't actually want to be friends with this girl (lol) and felt like Slimur was imposing on her but the way she handled it was fucking atrocious, my god. Even if she thought Slimur was over 18, you just mute/block/ignore annoying people and still leave the credit up for the gift art. The doxing shit was totally unnecessary and only made herself look bad.

Also, furries in general are cringeworthy as hell. Nawnii's channel is half drama and half art, all furry-related or animation meme community related. She reports on a ton of crappy underage drama despite being 22 herself. The only good thing she ever did was help minors out during the Cristali pedophile drama.

At least she didn't post it publicly and actually dox herself. It's sad to see someone learn the hard way why it's not a good idea to overshare with people you don't actually know very well.

Madame openly said she's doing it because she knows it's pissing people off. She doesn't care about "looking like a fool", negative attention is still attention. That concept seems to absolutely fly over people's heads, or they are aware and still participate anyway because they want to a-log to hide their own flaws.

Case in point. If you know it's low hanging fruit then why are you surprised that people have disdain for it? It's shit content for shitty artists.

There's really not much else that can come from this. I don't see Madame apologizing for anything, she'll probably just wait it out like most cows and continue on per usual once the mob dies down. All the dislike spam is from outsiders, she's barely lost 1k subscribers from this. It seems like her audience simply doesn't care about the fragile feelings of child artists. If she actually apologized you can color me surprised, but a sperg like her is more likely to just double down lmfao.

I expect the next Nawnii video to be nothing but circlejerking and making demands with no bite to them since they clearly don't share an audience. Anyone with a brain would just blacklist Madame and move on.

She just said that her art falls into a gray area if it gets to her channel but, she has other sources of income so she's not too worried about it and it's still too early on to tell who and what it's going to effect. Also I like how her style has been looking ever since she drew that one girl in the kitchen. It doesn't look nearly as stiff as something like her bee and puppy cat print (which makes me cringe because it looks so wooden)

NerdECrafter made a similar video on her vlog channel.

tbh i can understand the concern since the machine basically decides what does or doesn't qualify as "childish" content and thus, targetted for kids even if the primary audience for that channel are adults according to their statistics. Jackie mentioned that most of her audience is above the age of 18 according to statistics, but with the new rules in effect, anyone who watches her video would just be counted as a child.

the new rules could affect anyone that doesn't do sports and news cause it said "thousands of other content" that could be "targetted" towards kids based on characters, thumbnails, etc.

to my knowledge, non-personalized ads pay even less. YT already takes, I think 50 or 60 percent of normal ads per however many views as it varies between the type of channel (Beautytubers can make a lot per ad vs artubers who make a lot less per ad for the same number of views) and how many views, which is why so many art tubers already have a lot of ads in their videos because YT not only takes a chunk of the money (the flat rate they take is the same per all channels to my knowledge) Arttubers in general get less per ad in comparison to beauty gurus and other channels.

Not to mention, it could potentially impact what they can actually say and do in their video because it was mentioned they could be straight up demonetized, and lose access to notifications, comments, etc. and basically not even get engagement on their videos if they get marked as "childish content" according to what Jackie said at least. So not only do they lose money, they also can't engage and interact with their followers. Which, unless they ACTUALLY make content for kids actually ends up hurting them in the long run.

Plus, since a machine is doing this, we all know how that goes… Bots suck ass for doing this type of work, especially with no way of appealing it in a way that gets the bot off of your ass. Their copyright bots suck, this new one is going to be equally bad or worse than that one. It's a horrible system considering they won't even have a person managing or supporting it just like their copyright.

Thanks for explanations.

Actually I think it's good that children will be more protected from ads/ product reviews since children are so easy to manipulate. I also understand why yT says everything that's targeted towards children or mainly focuses on themes/ things that's pretty popular around children falls under the new regulations no matter how old the actual viewer may be – because how can they make sure that's really an adult watching and not a kid using their parents device. (Especially since they are not allowed to collect personal data on kid's content so there will be no data that could show it's an adult watching.) It's easier to just shelve the content in safe kids mode instead of getting into hassles with authorities. But: This whole cancelling of interaction between viewer and content creator/ other viewers is bollocks. It's the whole opposite of Social Media and degrades kid's content to a one way content delivery system like cable tv. And yes, algorithms categorizing content will probably error-prone at the start. (On the other hand: There are so many creators that a reviewing process through an actual human would be too time consuming. So bots with veto is the worst and best solution IMHO.)

Ok im gonna try and go more in depth now

The original call out post was deleted unfortunately but you can still see the preview and text and images in the journal in the comments https://www.deviantart.com/yukinez/status/12270231

I was there before the whole thing happened, i wasnt aware of the drama until i noticed that she deleted (hidden?) almost half of her gallery and disabled comments even up until now. She hides some of her other posts sometimes even tho there nothing wrong with them

She was insistent that there was absolutely nothing wrong with what shes doing, her main ocs was pedophilic i guess, im not entirely sure about the ages because its been a while but i think its a 14 (14) yr old boy and a 27 yr old man in a relationship, later changed to 18 and 23 after the call out but she changed it again and i dont understand anything anymore. I think there was also implications of pedophilic relationship with the underage character and his dad but he also calls his bf dad yikes

Her art is good n all but jesus she creeps me the fuck out. Mostly at how passive aggressive she is

No. 464154

No. 464157

Yeah. no one has any issue with them actually protecting kids. The issue is how their bot will Flag your content as "childish" or "child targetted" (because of colorful thumbnails, content, characters, etc.) even if your audience is primarily above the 18 according to your statistics, and count all of those viewers as if they are children anyways. So even if you make content that is primarily watched by 20 - 25-year-olds, if the bot flags your content as "childish" because of a colorful thumbnail it treats your entire audience as if they are younger than 13.

It's a dumb and overreactive system. Google is a massive company, they should be able to hire people to at least do some measure of human work into maintaining YouTube. Or at least creating a system where you can reach a human to discuss and talk about whatever issues your having instead of some automated and pre programmed bot.

One has to tick more than one probably to get shelved. But, well, I don't know the algorithm, obvously, so we just have to wait what happens.
I also may think if yT thinks yor video is for children, they will also just shelve this one video and not the whole account? Either way, yes, I get your point, it's somehow concerning for creative yTubers but I'm not sure if it's really the end of them how some create the impression.

this proves my point exactly. think of original sailor moon, the 90s long-limb anime style. it is a look, one that has become notable. then, look at the redraws. you can tell who stayed true to the source material by taking it the extra mile, and those that wanted to cash in for quick instagram clout. the entire first row has some sort of effort put in. even the first panel if the second row, just by looking at it and not knowing who the artist is, has some sort of motivation beyond likes to make the image. they look like genuine fans that want to stay true to the shows original aesthetic.

eveything else looks like garbage. these are what happens when you Teen Titan's Go-iffy Sailor Moon. Half-assed, lack of vision, and completely removed from the tone and motivation of the original work. the last one in row 2 looks like someone is just now learning how to blend in paint tool sai but forgot not to shade with black. middle of row two, i can see working if the show was re-imagined in a fanmade horror-like spin on sailor moon, a la Jhonen Vasquez' work before invader zim. the entire bottom row should honestly quit or go back to high school art 101.

The biggest problem with stuff like this is the medium. You simply can't stuff an entire art book into an Instagram/YT tutorial. You end up simplifying the facts so much its simply easier to say "don't do this" instead of "don't do this because, but if". The second biggest problem is the fact you're seeing the 5th evolution of that tutorial. Artist A makes a tutorial, artist B applies it to their work, artist C ask artist B for tutorial, artist B makes tutorial and it goes on and on with the tutorial slowly making less sense with each rehash. The worst part is artist B most likely doesn't know what they're talking about and just recites artist A without getting anything.
From what I've seen on art discords for some reason art books are really unpopular or rarely mentioned. In most servers the art resource center is simply Pinterest and deviantart tutorials or Proko if they feel fancy.
I feel it's more the mode of art you're in. If you're a Proffesinal who wants to keepa clean profile you would never make an art critique in fear of drama. If you're a more casual beginner, who's usually bad at art, you'd feel free to critique art.

No. 464662

Frankly though, she's not all that wrong. Sure unsolicited critique is something everyone just has to accept getting at some point but the matter of a fact is that a lot of this critique is coming from beginners and is frankly useless. Mistakes are something everyone makes and the higher your skill level gets the better you become at seeing them, so having someone just come and "critique" your art by pointing out every single mistake you already knew, can be annoying, especially if they end up pointing at wrong stuff which can do quite some damaging to someone less experienced.
Another problem I'd say is that some of these people can be rather entitled, they believe that because they critiqued your work, you now have to devote yourself to them in some sense. I used to just kindly thank people even if the critique was useless till I realized that to a lot of people it gave them a boost to try to start somehow mentoring me as if they knew at all what they were even talking about. At this point I still try to be nice but a lot more honest and tell people if their critique doesn't land. You would be surprised at how bitter some of these people get about it. Like they'll always tell you how you should be able to take critique as an artist but can't take criticism towards their own critique. They just become very annoying to deal with, because even if most people probably have a good intentions, there's still a good proportion who just uses the supposed "critique" to get some sort of foothold of the artist because of who knows why. Anyway this became such a rant but having dealt with these so much myself, I can understand why people get pissy about it. Ofc there's also those who're just shitty at art and don't want it to be pointed out but I'd rather highlight a real issue.

For real though haven't really had the issue in a good while since I'm no longer that active on social media but I used to interact with people on forums and comment sections etc and when you're known to be someone who responds to everyone, it's suddenly not so easy to ignore the one critique while you responded to every other comment.

That and the books that these kids likely bought were the ‘Draw Like Manga’ books.

I had those too, and my art really struggled for a long time. I threw most of those away, with the exception of my Camilla D’errico anime book, and my Flores & McSpadden Manga Boys book. I kept D’errico’s since I genuinely like her and the other for fashion inspiration. I have other books too, even a collection of some of Leonardo DaVinci’s sketches, plus a ton of modern art books. Yet, with the age of the internet, even my own mom saw me drop 80$ on the Fallout 4 art book and said ‘Can’t you get that online?’

People seem to think that books are out the door, and I would rather like to see co-existence.

No. 464717

original anon and I think the word 'unpopular' was to harsh. It's not "we don't like books", but more 'no one mentions, no one knows'. Loomis and other fundamental heavy art books rarely appear in book stores and the if you google how to draw heads books rarely appear, in favor of YouTube and Pintrest. It sounds really dumb, but for a lot of kids the idea of any art book being more complex than 'how to draw anime' is unthinkable

No. 464729

I totally get what you mean, I agree. But the other issue I have is a lot of these upcoming/young artists don't want to branch out and actually search for books or resources for fundamentals and go to these sites and end up copying what they see others draw. Now don't get me wrong, copying can help with learning, but you need those studies and fundamentals to get better.

Either way, I feel like we're also in a good place where if you're looking for that book you can't find a physical copy of in stores, another artist or fan of these type of books are happy to upload scans of them if you have to go that route. Maybe that's just me..

>and other fundamental heavy art books rarely appear in book stores

But today is so easy to find stuff , coming across a James Gurney or Scott Robertson book today is just as easy and likely as it is to come across any other book. The internet makes both things a google search away.

Kids 10-15 years ago might have not been seeing this information online but kids today do see it and simply willfully choose to ignore it.

About 99% of those "how to draw manga" books were trash and i know its haram but there was one series i remember that wasn't bad (i think it was actually a japanese translated series of books), Everything was pidgeonholed to anime, sure, but the stuff about perspective and proportions and general composition concepts was not actually misguided and the art was decent, i feel those are okay for kids who may simply be getting into it as a hobby because they like anime and if they want to pursue art further then they can move on to other more in depth material. I've met professional artists who have fond memories of those and the "How to draw the Mrvel Way" books, they get unfairly maligned i think. Lets face it, taking a 15 yr old weeb, insulting the age appropiate hobby he is excited about, throwing his anime in the trash and forcing him to do stuff from Bammes and Bargue studies and telling him he can only suck certain academically approved artists cock is not the most pedagogic approach. Only for the kid to go back to cartooning anyways later in life because most contemporary mainstream commercial art is not exactly classical realism and the realistic work is done with 3d and photos.

If your first language is English you guys had it easier. Although I had my first English lessons at the age of 10/ 11, it took me more than 10 years to get to a point where I'm able to understand technical books like Loomis or perspective without looking up the meaning of every fifth word or so. xD
Also, it's not easy to find good technical books/ tutorials in my native language written/ spoken by native speakers, nor translation of good English books (eg. there are no translations of Loomis' books as far as I'm aware of it). So understanding English good enough was crucial for my own learning curve.(emoji)

If the weeb kid only draws weeb shit, and thinks his art is amazing when it is lacking fundamentals, then he should absolutely work out of those books. You come across as someone who thinks telling other people ways to improve their art is bad. You can’t just say ‘use a reference’ without teaching people how to actually use references productively. If you want to get better, you need to learn. If the weeb is fine stagnating, that is on them. If they post it online, cool. If I say his art is bad and there are ways to improve, I can do that. He can ignore me, or cry like a baby, but that isn’t going to stop me from seeing his art and the flaws it has. It isn’t ‘sucking certain academically approved artists cock’ when, in order to improve, they are who everyone says to look at. Who gives a fuck if he returns to cartooning later, the entire point of drawing realism in the beginning is to draw better cartoons later. Or maybe pick up a book about creating stylized characters, like the one with that exact title by 3dtotal publishing. That book has, like, five different artists in it, and all of them say similar shit in the beginning. Learning not to draw weeb shit will improve your weeb shit in the long run.

No one said you don't need the other material or study something else too, just re read what i said without the prejudice or the "its my style weeb" straw man.

I never really liked the animu hating bandwagon that build up in art communities in general, and i said it as someone who trained mostly traditionally, the bias started on forums where if a "pro" scoffed at something it would be taken out of context, pushed to the extreme memed into dogma and repeated ad nauseum and still is like that in some spaces. It became a form of bullying almost because even really good and pretty creative artists who were improving a ton got shit on for being influenced by a style. and those "approved pro artists" where usually some random douchebag that photobashed his way into a AAA videogame company in the years when the demand was super high but quality standards were pretty low. Most hyped content was brown and grey space marines and minotaurs, it was never about doing master studies of Zorn versus tracing Naruto, it was more about what flavour of big breasted elf was better.

I’m happy anime got shit on. You need to think why it got shit on, it isn’t because it just is anime. There are various styles within anime, like Dragon Ball vs Sailor Moon, or Naruto vs Fruits Basket. Anime has different styles within itself that artists have materialized. The issue, and why pros don’t like it, is when new artists use anime as a crutch and just copy the people that came before them, like tracing Naruto art, without modifying the style for them. One case study I like is Avatar: the Last Airbender. It is a western anime. It isn’t classical western animation, like old Disney or Hanna Barbara, it is uniquely western anime. They took anime and modified it and made it new. Same for the original Teen Titans. But when a new artist comes along and only uses that one book or show as reference, their art is the copy of the end product, and not the process to it. There is education being missed out on if you only focus on one style of art.

Which is funny, considering she and Sugarbones once went on a public rampage against another small artist for the inexcusable crime of… making a heart-shaped bag.

I can't believe she had any creativity left after making [spins wheel] Moomin [throws dart] BDSM pins. It was an ita bag too, so it wasn't like the other artist was making a bum bag like Sugarbones'.

But no, they sicced their audiences on a smaller artist without stopping to rub their collective two and a half braincells together and consider that maybe, just maybe, if you don't want your shit sToLeN, make it fucking original.

No. 464876

I'm in the same boat as you anon,
Cheyenne & Lana make $$$$ weekly, if a smaller artist from a different country decides to make a 'Heart Shaped ___ Bag' it shouldn't hurt them as artists but nah, it was about "muh feelings" and their big egos and they can do it cause they don't hold accountability for the actions of their fans.

And it's funny cause Sugarbones makes profit from mainly fan art, which in turn is ridiculous for a "stolen bag idea"

I personally don't like Sugarbones mainly due to the fact that she's a weeb who does borderline child-like BDSM art and people on AANI love to lick her ass cause she has the money to order expensive merch from Alibaba. Cheyenne & Lana both are white girl artists that are big headed.

I wish Waffles would try more with other subjects, crack open a book and work on her flaws (ie same faces/bodies, same themes). She can’t expect to always be happy with her art and her progress if she doesn’t push her limits and doesn’t work on her visual library.

on reddit and forums it's mainly because mods are selling commissions too and they don't want their art to be critiqued.

Some people don't get that they should never openly critique something that was approved by a commercial clients, because a lot of things that are tacky or weird are clients preference, sometimes they require psd file with layers to modify it themselves and artist is allowed to show only this version. Also, some artists somehow accumulated a toxic fanbase who'll jump on anybody who dares to critique their precious artist.
It suck, there's no good place to get critique besides handfull of small forums. Everybody migrated to facebook and artstation or instagram to farm likes and followers, pros won't help unless they're your friend or you're great already because they don't want to deal with butthurt newbies after the only reasonable advice is "study fundamentals". Only way to get good critique is to save for atelier lessons or online mentorship.

So I am halfway through the last sketchbook in my collection from high school. I'm in the market for another, but the more I see of illo I don't like their paper, and the paper I have right now is a Pentalic Nature Sketchbook since the paper can hold ink and marker really well, and can hold okay when i use water. It is 210 gsm paper, but the only issue i have is the spiral binding and cardboard backing are bending just from being in my bag or on my lap while on the tram. Does anyone have a go-to sketchbook they buy when they need a new one? I have been using a different brand every time i swap to a new book and I really can't decide.

I have used Bee Paper, Pentalic, Strathmore, Canson, Kohn-i-noor, etc. Just looking for opinions from fellow ink/marker artists on their choice of sketchbook paper.

For full illustrations I do use Arches hotpress or Strathmore bristol, for more context.

I haven’t used them thoroughly yet but I splurged on a bunch of various sketchbooks and all media books from Cottonwood Arts when I saw them in person at Lightbox expo. Their books are glue bound but they have hot press books and are really reasonably priced, it’s run by a small Korean family who want to make their books affordable by lots of artists. The paper is a really good quality too, their cold press is about 300 gsm. The only bad part so far is my markers are bleeding behind the tone paper sketchbook (70gsm) but they also have marker paper.

But I am also the same, it took a lot to find the sketchbook I liked before I found cottonwood. Like I’m still iffy on moleskin cuz they’re expensive but I liked their paper thickness and the size

Theres nothing wroung with references but the dude (original title was - how to draw like ross draws) is actually tracing. If you trace all the time your gonan rely on it a lot. You look at references and observe and understand and draw and youll improve. Thats how art works, it takes time.

If you know a brand of paper that you like and don't mind a bit of extra work, then traditional stitch binding is also really easy. You can find loads of tutorials on youtube.

Putting on my tinfoil hat guys, but I’m questioning if TD actually has as many friends as she says who “experienced said thing”. It just seems so weird on the amount of stories that she has (mainly inspired by other Youtubers) and ‘quotes’ other people’s experiences or complains about said issue that the anon person is experiencing.
I wonder if she’s just quoting videos that she has watched , and calls them “said person” or “friend” who she uses as her point as to why she can’t or you shouldn’t do said thing because of her own stupidity of not thinking out the situation.

Its always this same-y stuff. Its at its worse when the joke is being made by some kid who's in denial about the fact they're bad at art. "It's not the fact not being able to draw hands is something only bad artists can't do, but its the natural order of things. Why look at all my friend who cant draw hands. Its completely normal to not be able to do that and it speaks nothing about my skill level if so can't draw hands"

One issue I see with adopts inherently is the fact that the design comes before the story (if they are used for a story)

Characters are tools used to tell a story,and character designs are tools to help inform the character,but when it comes to adopts,the character design comes BEFORE the story or characters

The "can you draw meee for freeee" one is something i see all the time on social media and it never made much sense to me. I've been drawing since my teens and drawing for money most of my 20s, i still have not had one single person in any context come up to em and tell me "can you draw me for free", not friends, not random strangers , not other students, coworkers, not family, not customers, not one, even when they ask it would be accompanied by "how much would it be for..?" .

In fact most of the time is me the one who have had to ask people "can i draw you?" when im doing studies or want to use them as reference or make a present or something like that. If you are live drawing in some coffe shop drawing random people is the whole point.

Don't get me wrong, i bet some people do get ask something like that in an inappropiate context and i had my shares of crooks offering me shitty deals or scams but never right of the bat "can you draw me for free just because". MY take on it is that is such a popular meme because a artists like exaggerating when they think it would make them look more solicited. Like they have a million people a day just begging them to draw them.

>people picking up drawing in their 20s and 30s and getting industry jobs

This is not the norm, and is even less common now than what it used to be some years ago when a lot of jobs opened up that weren't as profesionalized. And will be less common for the next generation, art is getting crowded.

Also "industry jobs" says nothing, see how you like being a 35 yr old entry level grunt working under a 25 yr old art director for peanuts. The filters are never outwardly stated but it all adds up on getting people out of the career.

No. 466831

The anon you responded to isn’t wrong. No one is talking about ‘child prodigies’, just being practical in the modern age. I am a purely traditional artist, but I love hand-drawn animation. I knew I would be in over my head when I signed up for an animation class for my degree. And sure enough, I had to both learn how to animate, but how to draw with a tablet, and there weren’t any with a screen so I could watch my own strokes. I learned how to extend keyframes the same day I learned how to program keybinds in Photoshop. And the moment I finished the class, I knew I could never be an animator. I simply had no time to learn the ins and outs of digital work on top of my traditional workload, plus my job and other schoolwork. I loved animating, but even being a kid that grew up surrounded by computers, I am reserved to the fact that I just don’t have the time to learn.

I have my degree now, it is only an associates of generals, and I do plan to go back and get a bachelors someday. But now I am 22, and between my job and other events in my life I’d rather not discuss, university is just not on my mind right now. Maybe I’ll learn digital when I go back to school, but not when I am living paycheck to paycheck. It makes me wish that I asked my parents for a tablet back when all I did was watch anime and play Garry’s Mod. Maybe that time could have gone towards something useful.

TL; DR- Yes, get your kids in as many art forms as they’d like. If they like art, show them all the ways to make it. Don’t demonize exposure to a medium simply due to age.

Is this for a class or for a job? If it is for a class, simply do what you can and call this a learning experience. If it is for a job, take a nap, set an alarm for 3 hrs, get and get some coffee and protein in you, and go at it again. Work for about 4-6 hrs, then do it again. You ruin your sleep schedule, but you will get your project done. I’m sure whatever you are working on will end up fine.

No. 466847

Learning how to animate isn’t that hard, it’s just not a good idea to start with a class where they expect you to have the basics figured out. Drawing with a tablet has a steep learning curve and starting with animation before drawing with it is a bad idea.
The idea that at 22 you’re too old to pick up animation is just wrong. It would take an hour a week for a few months to a year or faster if you have more time.
Generally people start with digital drawing> then simple looped gifs> slightly longer un looped gifs > short animation> longer animation

Have you looked at the demo reels and films from Sherydan or Cal arts or Gobelins, etc? these are 20 yr olds who are going straight to industry jobs and getting experience.

Its not about being a prodigy or not being literally able to learn at a certain age, is more about the real world implications of starting on something too late, in that aspect art is not different than any other career, try starting to learn engineering or law at an age when most of your peers are already graduated and at senior level experience, its an uphill battle that is best avoided by starting early.

What a great argument anon, gee…

I don't even know what the pushback is about, its pretty obvious common sense that is better to work on your skills as soon as possible, specially in a highly competitive field. But maybe some anons want to keep the illusion alive that they are going straight to lamboland and blow everyone out of the water when they finally choose to get their shit together, at age 50.

No. 466873

This is a load of bull. Of course it is better if you start working at a skill at a young age but you're not taking in account dedication. Some people can progress much more in a single year than other people in 10, check the art improvement memes if you don't believe me.

I studied animation and I was in a class with people in their mid twenties (some in their thirties) who suddenly decided to pick it up. They had some drawing experience but they had never owned or used a tablet before in their life and had 0 experience in digital art, much less animation. In a year they all had industry jobs. Hard work pays off.

Of course some luck is required to land a job like in any other career. Personally I got stuck freelancing and I'm done with the instability. I'm on a break to earn money outside the art bubble to be able to afford what I think I need to push my career forward at a later age, be able to move where the art jobs are and in the meantime further my education to have a wider range of skills.

Non-screen tablets were a luxury product when I was a teenager and of course part of me is bitter that I couldn't get started as early as possible like people do now, but in no way has "starting late" been a problem for anyone I know. Nobody gives a shit, you're the only one self-conscious about it. Take the chance that art is your presentation card you can hide behind in this industry, because in almost any other job out there your employability clock is constantly ticking as you age. As long as you're not older and trying to get into a trainee program, art is one of the least ageist jobs I have personally dealt with.

Exactly. Dedication means jack-shit if you don't have the fancy piece of paper that says you spent money to learn something, from a place where if their name is on that piece of paper, employers care.

It is honestly just better to not get into art as a career at all after a certain age. Better to treat it as a hobby you do on the side. If you work a shitty 9-5 or something, but dedicate your free time to your passions, not learning how to draw with a tablet doesn't matter as much.

I usually don't despise art styles this much but I finally found one. This is by froggywithfries, an animator for Planet Dolan. Which itself is a pretty shitty channel too, IDK if it counts as an art channel though. The ugly button nose and my little pony eyes mixed with bright colors and the bad anatomy thickness just make this so garish. The chicken wings also just look like shit.

When YT artists do it, I understand why even tho I also hate it: they’re so focused with making everything look pretty that they don’t actually study correctly (Baylee) or develop styles that aren’t dependent on basic fundamentals (kasey, jazza). They’re always inevitably “cartoony” artists cuz they believe you don’t need fundamentals to be cartoony but like the actuality is the artists they’re aping, like Disney house style, all have strong fundamentals in their background and do it enough to where it is either natural or they don’t show off how much they practice.

All her latest videos are kinda off, actually. She put in A LOT more effort before. Now it's kiddie humor, a lot of snorting/ giggling even for the most basic shit, some ~quirky ~ sound effects, and her art is always a cute girl no matter what the prompt or mediums are. I used to think she was super hardworking and that she kept trying even when she was out of her comfort zone, but now she basically never leaves it unless she's trying new ~weird ~ mediums for her sponsored art boxes. Even then the subject matter stays firmly in her comfort zone.

So what did you think about Adobe Fresco for the iPad, is it worth $120 USD a year?

Yeah, like her best vids were the ones where she intentionally avoided the cute girl look. Like when she was on that 'I need to get better at drawing boys!' kick. Those were some of her best vids. Her inktober last year was good too, a lot of pretty girl subjects, but she still limited herself to the prompt and some of my favorites from her came during that. Her mermay this year was weak, though, so I have little hope for her inktober.

I've been wondering for a while if she's just stressed about something in her personal life. Her art in her videos all seems kind of rushed, she's not putting any thought into the prompts and is just throwing down lines wherever when she inks. Her sketchbook spreads where she doesn't have to work with random art supplies seem a bit looser and have better results, even if the subjects are still all cute girls. Maybe she just needs a couple of weeks off?

No. 467326

I loved her 2018 Inktober, ofc there were cute girls but I liked her interpretations of the prompts and how she was using the dip pens/ inks. This year's Mermay was annoying to me because of her emphasis on those stupid bLuB fIsH, maybe I'd have found them cute if I was 10 but….

No. 467346

I thought Adobe would be smart enough to price it competitively so it could actually, you know, compete with Procreate or Artstudio Pro. I don't think it'll ever become another industry standard, though. It definitely won't replace Procreate/ASP or the number of free apps for it for the hobby/non-industry artist market, which I reckon is where a good portion of their income comes from with their bullshit subscriptions. Procreate is cheaper, way more intuitive on the ipad, and adds more and more features with every update and a lot of pros are already starting to use it. Adobe is asking for $120 a year and it hardly has any of the features you'd even want Photoshop for. If you're going to pay out the ass for a program on the ipad, might as well be CSP instead (on that note, I hate how CSP has a sub model on the ipad, but at least it has all the features the PC/Mac program has).

No. 467347


I also thought she might be getting a bit burned out on the subscription boxes. I bet they're her main source of income, but she gets about 4 now. She does 2 videos a week, so the boxes make half her videos in a month. She might be in a bit of a trap where she can't cut the number of videos she has to make without either losing a sponsorship from 2 boxes or becoming a sub box only channel.

I know this is the sort of problem a professional youtuber signs up for, but it's still kind of sad to see it happen to a channel you like. (Assuming I'm right about this of course.)

No I mean if she wanted to do FEWER than 2 videos a week (because she needs a break or whatever) the sub box sponsorships would make that hard.

She's very private about her personal life but IIRC she had a day job before she got ill, I imagine her current number of videos is her maximum capacity.

No. 467502

Honestly if you're a professional that makes their income mostly from their digital art and you don't have a computer and JUST have an ipad pro in place of a tablet then, yeah I do think you should get this or Clip Studio because they are better than Procreate in some ways and in ways you might need for your job specifically. But that description fits such a small number of people that at the end of the day no, it is not worth it to spend that much money on monthly subs. But you also have to think about the alternative to buying a one time purchase tablet and then subscribing to one of the better art apps vs buying a computer and tablet and software. The former seems cheaper for those getting started so I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people (students or just out of school) would go that route. It might not seem smart in the long run but for some people it might be the only option they see at first with limited money coming from part time low paying jobs.

I have a question for the salty anons about Inktober. I know digital art is frowned upon by a lot of people in general and the anosn here seem to have when people use watercolor but what about black india ink painting? That counts for Inktober right or does it have to be ink pens only?

No. 467514


Anon the only legit rule is "one ink piece per day in October, post it with the hashtag". It has to be ink, other than that it's wide open. You want to dilute the ink and paint with it that's fine, using dip pens is fine, fountain pens are fine, gel pens are fine, penciling first is fine (Jake Parker does and it's his challenge). If you look at Jake Parker's blogs about it he lists loads of tools that aren't old-fashioned dip pens, like brush pens and fineliners. As long as it's INK and not paint, charcoal, chalk pastel or anything else it's fine.

People exclude watercolor because it's NOT ink. Digital is frowned upon because the point is not to be able to erase and you can erase digital 'ink'. As long as you're still using something you can reasonably call ink you don't need to stress out about it.

Yeah, Inktober has become a status thing. It's less about the actual challenge and more about the face value of "I'm doing it". Personally, I don't see what the point of doing it is if you're not going to respect the rules- it's a challenge, you're supposed to be challenged

No. 467782

yeah to a degree even jake has probably realized that it's more about the clout and people take it way more seriously than what it is meant to be.

Between people who debate over whether or not you can use digital art even if you still maintain the inking portion to improve your digital inking/lineart (cause I mean if you mainly work with that may as well improve those skills), whether or not it can be only traditional black and white ink vs if color inks (such as watercolor and bombay inks) are okay, whether or not copics count as ink, or even whether or not you can color an inked picture that you did (either by copics, watercolor, etc.) or whether it has to remain purely ink and black/white, whether you can follow your own prompt list or not, etc.

People just became too serious over it and to a degree, do try to "police" what other people can do over the "spirit of inktober" even if it's something as simple as whether or not you can or should color an inked picture you created. Meanwhile, Jake basically just wants people to shut up and do the challenge in the way that is most beneficial and/or fun to them rather than arguing over how someone else does the challenge.

That's kind of what I meant when I said the focus is on linework. Like, yeah use SOME type of ink, but don't stress about it being ink and dip pen only or somehow you're failing at it. I would even argue that if you wanted to add colour with another medium that's fine too, as long as the focus is the line work. Either way, I'm using dip pens and brushes with inks but some people can't afford to go out and buy a whole new medium to use for one month out of the year. Kind of a waste for a lot of people.

I literally just jump between a couple different prompt lists and pick whichever one I have an idea for, and usually go with my first idea. I don't have much time every single day to draw so I find this is what helps me at least get something out. I keep it pretty simple too, if I have more time I'll do something more fancy but if I get home at 9pm and work tomorrow morning I know I'm not gonna be able to put out my best work lol Accepting that fact takes a lot of the pressure out of it and enables me to actually complete pieces.

>the problem here is you can't draw, period.
It's kind of a harsh truth you have to tell a lot of begging artists. You can't draw exaggerated expressions, because you can't draw expressions. You can't draw expressions, because you can't draw faces. You can't draw faces because you can't draw 3d forms. you can't draw 3d form because you simply can't draw.

Well it's definitely easier to draw digitally than it is traditionally. I know many people who paint very well in person, and eased in to digital very quickly. It's easier to make paintings and fix mistakes on Photoshop with layers than doing a giant oil painting mixing colors on your own, unable to resize, erase etc. It's the different tools that make it easy and the fact that the computer is doing some of the rendering for you.
Yup pretty much agree. It's just rendering made easier with cheesy stuff kids are getting into. On top of that, there's been tons of tracers and people who just warp portraits on insta with procreate. Tracing has never been so easy before

>Well it's definitely easier to draw digitally than it is traditionally

nothing is as intuitive and straightforward than drawing traditionally, what digital makes easier are corrections and also tracing and cutting corners but the actual drawing i think is harder or at least more uncomfortable. Drawing a curve 10 times before you get it right and then still having to lasso select it and warp is not something you'd have to do just drawing with a pen, only one mindful stroke and you are golden.


Theres a lot that can be done with photomanipulation and 3d. You can still be aware of principles and doing a good photobash or a 3d composite to trace over takes its own set of skills but someone who is able to do that and get good result may still not feel comfortable just drawing something from scratch without relying heavily on digital shortcuts. Theres a lot of working industry artists that would cry themselves and ragequit if they had to do a comic book or work in a stylized way, like animation demands, in fact there are examples of some who have tried doing comics and still comes up looking like a stiff traced picture with halftones. It just not the same set of skills for everything.

No. 468346

I concur, a lot of traditional artists flop when they transition not everyone succeeds. It’s about skill sets.
I’ve seen this argument ever since the Wacom was invented. Digital doesn’t automatically make you better. Just like $200 watercolours won’t.

No. 468369


Of course, if someone has a traditional background that doesn't mean they don't have to learn the digital techniques as their own skillset too if they want to get good at it. Just having drawn a lot traditionally doesn't automatically make you a great digital artist, it helps but you still have to make the extra effort to learn it and get some practice mileage on it.

No. 468609

I liked her Inktober girl, but I know the only reason I did was because of the greyscale, it made the drawing different from her most recent stuff. If it was coloured (in Copics, no doubt, because nowadays she never uses any other medium) it wouldn't have been any different than usual.

No. 468611

Yeah I like to watch her videos just for her cheery personality but it's like she's so set in her ways she won't even follow the prompt list for inktober or even an alternate prompt list because she might have to draw something besides pretty girl floating. Really disappointed.

No. 468613

I genuinely think she's burnt out. She's mentioned being "art blocked" but I think she's the opposite, with all those art boxes she HAS to do art for every week, like it or not. Now she's also doing Inktober for the clout.

(I lost my shit when she painstakingly drew in the Inktober girl's curly hair, and even commented on "you can't block curly hair in shapes like I usually do, you have to put in some effort"…. only to end up colouring the entire thing black, effectively blocking it in one big shape and covering all the details….)

No. 468628

Omg exactly! She went on and on about the hair and she was excited about how she'd gotten it right then painted over it. And the voice over wasn't live either so it's not like she recorded her thoughts on the fly then changed her mind.

I do agree she must be burnt out, it must be tiresome to pretend to be excited all the time. Her tone lately sounds on edge and impatient but trying to make the show go on. I wonder if youtubers are happy for a free video theme opportunity baked in for them or they wish they had never started doing unboxing videos?

Question for you girls, is it true that if you want to be a pro you must learn digital art? If you want to go full traditional you need to treat it as a hobby? I heard this from a person I know and kept me thinking for a while.

No. 468868

If you mean "pro" in the sense of profiting for it , it definitely makes it easier to know digital, if your output is traditional of course is not impossible to market yourself in some way, but is limiting since digital is such an industry standard now. Were i live it would be impossible since the only way to work as an artist is doing digital work online or for a studio that gets outsourced as there is no gallery scene and no local market for traditional to speak off, selling merch and doing cons is really not an option either. In my case, it would be true, i'd had to keep it as a hobby but is all context relative.

What does going pro mean to you?

If it's an industry job like games or animation, then yeah, you'll be left in the dust if you don't pick up at least the basics in the required software. You can certainly work traditionally but you'll be limiting yourself if that's where it stops for you.

If it's gallery, or tabling, niche freelancing or like a YouTube thing I'd say it wouldn't matter as much.

No. 468882

Like another anon mentioned, it depends on what industry you want to break into. You have to be willing to compromise in some way;
- either learn digital so that you can access industries such as: concept art, game/movie design, animation, graphic design, product design (notice the trend of them being design oriented? Digital cuts out many steps and speeds up workflow along with making it easy to edit drafts)

- stick with traditional but set your sights on physical formats: book illustration, portraiture, gallery artist, art teacher, comics, children’s illustration, art therapy (publishers still adore traditional art, in particular watercolour and ink so that’s a decent avenue)

Or go freelance/be self-employed and do whatever you want, but be prepared to struggle at first

It doesn't help that if you've not got a display tablet when going from traditional to digital there's that disconnect from drawing down but looking up.

I hated it so much I just got an iPad and an Apple Pencil, and already my digital art has improved faster than it did on an older graphics tablet.

Was thinking about getting that 'paper-like' screen protector too that gives you the sensation of drawing on paper when you use your iPad but £30 seems ott.

Anyone recommend it?

No. 468994

The matte paper-like protectors make the retina display look like shit. It's noticeably muted. I took mine off because I couldn't stand it and I don't mind drawing on the glass, anyway. If the sensation of drawing on paper is important to you then go for it (there are cheaper ones that do the same thing, don't have to use the expensive Paperlike brand) but otherwise it's definitely not necessary.

No. 468995

I think it's easier to market yourself and sell work and maintain an income if you get into digital art but you can still be a professional artist and do traditional art.

My mum's boyfriend is a full time traditional artist and it's actually really interesting to hear about what he does to market himself and sell his work, compared to people that do generic digital art of pretty girls and pop culture stuff to sell at cons.

It's all just down to what you want to make, and then learning about how other people market themselves that make similar things.

Like, my mum's boyfriend is constantly sending huge pieces to galleries and exhibitions, but my friends are selling at conventions and online.

Either is achievable, but I will say that unless you're the offspring of an already famous traditional artist, getting up there in that world can be insanely difficult.

Yep, and she moved to Portland. And then complains about Portland. Like, as a resident there my entire life, the reason she had to live in the warehouse district is because of Californians moving here en mass, forcing rents to be raised, creating a mini-housing bubble that is due to burst anytime. Her complaining about being forced out of her apartment is a problem of her own creation by moving here 5 years too late. I think I remember her complaining about the homelessness issue in Portland- Here is the thing, all the homeless people that got kicked out of San Jose and other California cities, came here! Like, seriously. Portland smells like piss because Californian rejects like Creepshow came here, and the ones that remained homeless piss in the streets. She is literally part of the problem she complains about. Maybe if she got an actual job, because there are fucking plenty in the area she lived in, she wouldn’t have an issue finding a place to live that wasn’t blocks away from a chemical processing area.

BTW, when she posted about a fire that forced her to evacuate a while back, and the fact she complained about Portland, she literally ddosed herself. She posted pictures of the fire from the same angle the newspaper did. She must have marbles for brains and lost a few. Fucking moron…

It was when she started actually talking about herself, what happened in her life, and just the general laziness of her video-making that turned me off to her. The final straw for me was when she made that video about her ‘online stalker’. Talk about a load of shit. Even in the early days of Myspace and Facebook, people knew if blocking wasn’t stopping harassment, you private your account. Instead, she thinks she is smarter than everyone in the room and makes the fakest of fake stories I have ever heard for clickbait.

It probably doesn't but i'll admit idk much about it. Though it always kinda seems like… ehhh… whenever someone says x illness doesn't warrant quitting your job cause other than like, cancer there practically isn't any illness that will "prevent" you from working so to say.

Ik that Jackie did work as a teacher through which is why she was so knowledgable for the competency for kids. Given that it seems she worked mostly with like 5 - 10-year-olds, babysitting 2 or 3 for a couple of hours is a handful in and of itself. I can only imagine handling 15+ in a classroom for 8+ hours a day 5 days a week. If I had any type of illness that could cause me fatigue on a regular basis, I would probably stop doing something like teaching too. Teaching (especially young kids) already requires a lot of energy, it doesn't need to be compounded with something that already causes you to have a lack of energy or require.

Jake wasn't going to enforce crap but we all know that there are some crazy members of the art community who would have tried to police the hashtag.

If "Zatanna" and the blonde chick next to her swapped wigs, nothing would change…. Jacquelin has a serious sameface problem

Not to mention, if someone showed you the "Zatanna" drawing with no context, just "This is a redesign for a popular DC character", it'd be impossible to tell who she's supposed to be, and that's the sign of a bad design. Period.

Yeah there’s this division in DC who is hiring mostly like, social media popular artists like Gabriel Picolo for that Raven book (which was fine) and Cara McGee for that black canary book, but honestly like most of those people don’t seem to really do sequential WELL. They’re all well known for like, pinup or static art like Jacquelin so like the overall book it’s like, what’s gonna be inside?

There’s a second Zatanna book too, for younger kids, with illustrations by yoshi yoshitani which I think is still slightly like, you wouldn’t know it was Zatanna unless the title, but yoshi’s style is way more diverse than jacquelin’s imo

Yeah Zatanna’s whole schtick is that she’s a magician who was the daughter of a magician that actually does real magic so like, adult version of her has variations of her fishnets costumes (look at Ryan Sook’s run of Zatanna’s Seven Soldiers arc, I’m a Zatanna fan and that’s my favorite of her stuff). I’m thinking whoever is writing this YA Zatanna is trying to do the whole like “young hipster witch” look that’s popular now and I’m not super into it at all (like at least put in fishnets or something?)

There HAS also been a younger version of Zatanna in comics, this is from the Joe Quinones drawn run of a Black Canary and Zatanna book and, while it’s still really weird and monk like imo, it still is very much like “young girl with mystical background” and not generic jacquelin girl

Literally no reason to go on ic/ except to grab torrent links.

As far as the communities go, can't think of anything like it, ca.org is abandoned, cghub died, i don't know if crimson daggers is still a thing and artstation is used as portfolio only. Most artists just form their own little private discord and hangout groups with peers they know personally so they can give and receive feedback. I used to join one that only had like 10 members and every night there would be a few of us just streaming and chatting while doing our daily studies, that pretty much disintegrated and haven't networked my way into a new one.

You can try Level up and Character Design Challenge on fb. Lvl up has a lot of what you would expect from fb though, and is mostly just people self promoting but if casual critique is what you are after its ok.

No. 469629


I think the difference is Yoshi has obviously thought about it at least a bit. She's kept the black and white color scheme and tried to hint at her classic tuxedo costume in an age-appropriate way with the shirt and waistcoat combo.

Jacqueline's thought process seems to have stopped at 'goth witch girl'. She's even made the rabbit grey so it's ~gothic~ when the reason Zatanna has a rabbit in the first place is that WHITE ones are used in stage magic.

I think Zatanna is a genuinely difficult character to design as a child/teen because her most iconic adult costume can't really be made appropriate, but you can at least make a design that says 'grew up around stage magic' and not 'I know nothing about this character but witches are on trend'.

No. 469664

I dont get it either, if you dont wanna draw everyday, just dont but stop the whining

Does Zatanna need to be that tricky to redesign as a kid? Exchange the black panty style bottoms for a black skirt and give her opaque tights beneath and keep everything else the same more or less. Maybe that's too obvious though.

No. 469696

In theory, Jacquelin is the perfect fit: her art is all about pretty witchy hipster (I meant "stylish") girls, she's young so there'd be no "How do you do fellow kids", and she already has a following herself, so in DC's eyes there's an audience right there, ready for them.

In practice, though… no.

No. 469700


Depends on the story you want to tell I guess? Her costumes have normally been ones she wears on stage as well, so if you're writing her as a kid superhero you don't need to change it much at all. There's a flashback in Seven Soldiers of Victory that shows her on stage as a child wearing a very slightly redesigned version of her classic tuxedo costume and it doesn't look inappropriate in context. I think as long as her costume is obviously a COSTUME it's not too difficult.

It looks like the new comics are going for more of a 'street clothes' style, which is harder IMO. Most of the iconic elements of her costume just wouldn't look right incorporated into an everyday outfit for a child. I think Yoshi's done a decent job from that perspective.

I'm tempted to say… stick a top hat on the character and see if you can guess it's Zatanna, if you can then the rest of the outfit is probably fine. I think Yoshi's would pass that test but Jacqueline's wouldn't.

In theory its a bad too, comic fans are just the type that hates the "fellow kids" social media clout stuff and is not all that friendly with efamous artists and social media trends.

Zatanna was in DC’s superhero girls recently with a more different look to her: she has purple hair this time like jacquelin’s but her costume elements are from her 70’s. This is one of the most out there of a Zatanna design but I think it has enough elements to recall the character instead of being woefully generic like jacquelin

Looking at it I'm wondering if that's the only version Jacqueline's ever seen and she's guessed completely wrong about which parts were important. Like she's kept the red cape sleeve (as a shawl) and the purple hair color which are the DEPARTURES from the 70s design and junked all the important bits like the leotard and the helmet haircut.

No. 469821

Parents, deployed soldiers, doctors, anyone that owns their own business, anyone above AGM in any profession, not to mention farmers and truckers-

Hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of people do work everyday, as a requirement of their job. Drawing once a day is not a job. It is a hobby. It is easily doable. If you can't do it as a hobby, then maybe doing it as a profession isn't for you. Might be authcap to you, but to me, it sounds like you don't like being called lazy to you face and blame 'The Man' for said laziness.

If it is two-part, why are you leaving the only part that promotes actual improvement out of the equation as secondhand? You can think about drawing, but if you don't actually draw, you won't improve.

No. 469831

Nta but I've seen a tons of artist who draw everyday and do studies after studies but still never improve. People tend to forget that actually thinking while drawing makes you learn a lot faster than just by drawing. You should study art everyday but if you think you have to draw everyday, then you're not truly using the world to your advantage. You can learn tons about art in just a month without your pen even touching the paper, just by being good at observing the world around you.

No. 469837

Are you taking the mick? Just do both. I find it very hard to believe that you can learn how to draw in a decent manner by not drawing. You can stare at the Mona Lisa all you want, but you will never learn how to paint unless you actually pick up a brush and do it.

No. 469849

>I've seen a tons of artist who draw everyday and do studies after studies but still never improve
Yep. Holly Brown is a great example of that, remember her Sketchbook Slam or whatever it was called challenge? Fill 20 pages of a sketchbook every day or something. I don't agree with the rest of your post because it's impossible to learn how to draw well without actually doing it (as it is with any practical skill), but that part is true.

No. 469862

Well ofc you have to draw to learn to draw, that is given. But you can go periods of not drawing and still improve if you keep on observing and learning theory. Like some artist who go on hiatus come back with their skills totally withered while other show signs of improvement despise not drawing for a while. Art really is just about repeating basics and if you're keen observer you can do a lot with just that alone. Dunno if you've ever done the "few minute stare, then draw from memory" challenge where you observe a certain object like hand for 10 minutes, then go and draw a patch of hands from memory alone, rinse and repeat. This is actually a very efficient way to practice and it does work long term as well, for example when go out and observe trees and lights and buildings, you learn a little bit each time if you actually study what you're looking at. Drawing is a lot about muscle memory so ofc if you never draw you're not going to get better but someone who has never drawn and picks up drawing after having observed life will have a lot easier start than someone who's never really seen the world around them before.

Studying everyday and drawing everyday are two different things.

How are people getting worked up over this, these types of lips are typically used by porn artists.

No. 469901

There were two upset camps. One was lewd art stans that were offended that their fav glossy pputy porn lips were being called out and the other were people saying it was racist. In all honesty I get how you can look at this and see standard thin lips and porno = thick lips and take it the wrong way. On the other hand I'm pretty sure the artist just meant how detailed you make the lips and how silly the expressions can get when people pucker them stupidly. Do you know.

Nigga the point is that men have a whole wide variety of attractive characters to admire and identify with as the characters are given plenty of different body types, even for the ones that women are supposed to find sexy. Using some jacked up male power fantasy superhero from Marvel is a shitty, tired hyperbole. I don't even really give a shit about the anime tiddy debate but this is just intentionally misunderstanding the point completely.

>Guys don't seem to care how males are depicted.
You ever seen them go fucking nuts over reeing about beautiful anime men or boy band members women find attractive? Whenever art has male characters depicted as something women would actually like instead of being a buzzcut space marine men can stroke their ego cocks over, they lose their shit.

I am someone who is very much in favor of free speech and people expressing and having fun with art however they want even if i don't personally like it and find it cringe, i really don't reeeee about guys who like Kill la kill i just wished there was more prominence of women expressing themselves and having fun with art too, i would not go around censoring problematic characters because male gaze, i just want to promote more alternatives made by more diverse creators.

>Whenever art has male characters depicted as something women would actually like instead of being a buzzcut space marine men can stroke their ego cocks over, they lose their shit.

Sandman was cute, he is a well liked character, Death was also a cool female character from the same comic. You forget theres a shit ton of comic fans who think capeshit and moe is boring too.

So you have never been on /a/ or other equally shitty male dominated sites in your life? Male anime fans DESPISE fujos and anything that appeals to them, to the point of feeling betrayed when Kyoani made Free. Ever paid any attention to how korean men on netizenbuzz comments respond to boy groups (pure unadulterated loathing as the lowest form of entertainment because girls like them) compared to girl groups (beloved by all genders of the public)?

Men hate cute boys that girls enjoy, they just disguise it as disgust for their music/characters/etc for credibility. One Direction, Justin Bieber, Edward Cullen, are the biggest examples I can think of in recent years. They can't stand it when women's taste doesn't match up to their preconceived notions of what we like. The internet tells them we all want middle aged dad bod silver foxes when lmao fuck that.

This is such a lie. Men have a huge chip on their shoulder about attractive men that aren't hulking behemoths.
All attractive anime boys are "fujoshit", all K-pop male stars are "faggots", etc that real women could never, ever really want. Hell, look at how much they seethed about girls liking Edward and Jacob from Twilight back in the day.
They're so pissy about women liking attractive young men instead of ugly old apes that they'll even make jabs at little girls about it. But it's okay when they lust after young girls, even when they're in their 60s. Funny how that works.

This exactly. Every time I see vent art, it's some piss poor, edgy garbage that nothing but white and red scribbling on a black canvas. It's always kind of disappointing that these people can actually draw something with meaning and emotion, but waste on shit that no-one cares about. Occasionally, I'll see some good vent art that actually has a purpose and message, and it often can and will end up as one of my favourite pieces by the artist. However, the shit that I usually see makes me immediately and greatly dislike whoever posted it. If it's not productive, interesting, or meaningful, keep your attempts at pathetically seeking asspats off of your goddamn professional, public account.

Offtopic/blogposting, but there's a cow who is a friend of mine. she does the exact some bullshit. Unintelligible scribblings depicting an eating disorder she doesn't have (very, very occasionally skipping 1 or 2 meals for a couple of days because you're upset is not a goddamn eating disorder) and self-harm issues when she has never once cut. She posts this bullshit to her public account that has a decent following. When people ask questions, she either ignores or gives a curt response saying she doesn't want to talk about it. I feel like this a trend for the majority who post 'content' like this though. They depict stuff in their vent that is completely untrue or unrelated to them. I almost feel like it ties into the snowflake victim-complex. Anxiety and depression aren't as special or unique anymore, and they definitely don't bring the same amount of attention, so claiming you have sh and ed tendencies fixes that.

But that's not "anime". Same faces in anime allows ease of animating, this is just an illustration image, not mentioning those legs lol.

No. 470653

Shoujo and Moe tend to be pretty same facey in general. Old people look like teenagers and animals have comically stupid human faces because they can't/won't draw more than one face. It doesn't make it bad, it can be a good story or have amazing rendering ect but that doesn't change the fact that the faces do not vary. Having different faces isn't a requirement but some people don't like it which is just their opinion. If yours is different then congrats but you can't say they don't have the same face.

The actual fuck are you talking about. The big eyes in anime aesthetic came from Junichi Nakahara from the mid 1900's and the aesthetic of girls being quiet (hence the small mouths and other features) but having a very lively inner life and thoughts (again, hence the big, expressive eyes). The style caught on, became a staple of the anime style and that's where it came from.

Also are these people constantly bitching about le anime sameface meme like it was fresh stuff fucking 17 years old and just struggling to get out of their weeb phase? Character designs aren't limited to everyone having the same face shape and eyes, in something like >>470495 I can still tell the characters apart due to different expressions and body language alone. Taking "sameface syndrome" as a literal thing is actual high school level artfag 101 fart sucking, it should be used to refer to ALL the characters being the same cookie cutter blandness with no variation or distinguishable traits to them. Like almost any character Glen Keane draws looks identical, not only because the face is the same goddamn face he's been drawing since the 80's, it's also because they're the same sort of quirky, naive, sort of awkward borderline MPDG disney princess archetype with the same personality and expressions.

No. 470729

Doesn't make it any less uninteresting and boring, though.


The best musical artists tend to not have songs that sound the same and it's different from what many anime influenced artists do.

Wow I had no idea animation studios in America had huge budgets and lots of time to get their work done you’ve really opened my eyes

No. 470742

No, it's because shitty anime and weeb culture normalise some usually unacceptable/unrealistic behaviours (being violent for fun, constantly sexualising women, being a useless male yet somehow getting a harem of cute girls, etc) which makes unsocialised male autists feel accepted and validated. "Nerd culture" in general attracts them because it allows them to be condescending (which is a trait most autists have, especially when they're teens) about meaningless shit and have their lack of self-awareness be celebrated.

Oh no. It appears that I too have copied that artist years ago with a similar drawing. /s
They need to get over themselves. The idea of having a character or figure looking into a mirror really isn’t that original.

No. 470796

Oh no, someone drew a girl putting makeup on in a mirror, the fucking horror, burn the witch.
These artists need to calm the fuck down about what they think is 'truly original works of art' and realize that half the shit they make is anything anyone could come up with. When it's something more complicated than literally what mirrors are made for, then they can start to complain.

What the fuck lmao, the lengths these bitches are going with their reaches. They're not even remotely similar, this is just unnecessarily catty and egoistical.

Around the 9 min mark TD basically says because taking commissions isn't a 'normal job' taking a long time (after someone has already paid an artist) is okay and people need to be more understanding. Okay lol. Rich coming from someone who has no other fucking job?? Fucking christ. I feel like this is just damage control for Holly Brown not doing her commissions while she draws random bullshit for her OCs after people have already paid her.

No. 470940

"I see people complaining when people take more than a week for a commission…maybe the artist has a life?" Wtf TD you have no excuse your only job is DA commissions and YT if they already paid you draw their stupid furry OC in a day or two and stop fucking bitching. "Maybe they're busy" maybe they shouldnt take commissions then ffs it's a job.

No. 470942

What I got was that the whole video was basically TD’s view on the Madam drama.
Also, idk why TD always complains about how she life sucks, “ oh but she understands how privileged she is!”
Saying is different from actually understanding,
She puts her problems foreword, with or without realizing for pity points; she says her computer sucks and is dying, why can’t she get a new one? Oh wait, she bought an iPad for drawing, so there’s one of the fix, she’s not loosing money, why? Because she’s still able to work.
She used the computer as one of her points as to why is may not be able to produce stuff to her commissioners, yet here she is on the side, posting doodles on her ipad

she always sounds WINDED like she ran a marathon. Keeps catching her breath like she can't breath. It's really jarring.

Madame didn't pay any money though so taking more than a week is understandable. Artists who already have the money in their bank accounts need to prioritize commissions over their personal pet projects or not take them at all

I have a theory as to why she does this- Hear me out, it may sound crazy, but I don’t think she runs enough, and that is her problem. Like maybe if she ran more, she could breathe a little easier. Maybe a good run ro release some of the pressure and weight off her shoulders… Just a thought.

No. 470967

While I've waited several months for commissions in the past, they were from very good artists who had lengthy queues who also worked full-time jobs. If youre a slug who KNOWS you can get your work done in a day or 2 then it's just laziness at that point, we know TD does jack shit except sitting in her room breathing heavily.

Random quotes
>I feel like I've failed in life because I have never been able to hang with anyone in person throughout my entire life to feel close enough to talk about anything personal, which extends to my family who never really tries to understand me. (I’m sure im not alone in that) I don’t know what having a “best friend” feels like at this point in life and all I can do I envy people who can find happiness with friends or partners. I always get sad when I reflect on my position, which doesn’t get me closer to what I want. When I see that someone has a group of friends they have already done so much with, traveled, hung out with consistently, shared new experiences I just…. break down inside because I have never experienced that, and feel like I will never get to experience that feeling.
>And yet for some reason, When in the presence of others, I feel the need to show what I’ve achieved socially to show that “I’m fine”. I talk about my successes and never my struggles, some sort of thing to make me feel that I don’t actually have it so bad, but also not to bring down the mood. Gotta consume media to keep up and talk about things! The funny thing is I can’t even fully enjoy any stories in games/shows anymore because ALL of them reflect on people having active social lives that give their lives meaning. The only thing I can even imagine making now a days is something to show this… overwhelming loneliness– to be quickly lost and forgotten in the recesses of the internet.

At least they have their 17k followers to lean on during such troubling times.

Yeah, I kind of agree. Like feeling depressed is shit, and suicide is no fun if you survive the attempt, but the last thing I want is people to feel sorry for me.

If there is no one there and you are so lonely there is no reason to even write anything. You just want the people who already know you and you know are there to read your emo charade to feel so bad and to kiss your ass a little, maybe gauge who gives a shit. Typical narc.

The character designs are 2007 Tumblr as hell and the animaton is too jerky for my liking. Also this artist seems to have never heard of compositon and contrast because she scatters the characters all over the screen and everything is pink and red so I have absolutely no idea where to look. I like the idea of the series but it's probably going to hurt my eyes too much for me to be able to watch
