The video is literally represents Youtuber-artists, uncreative, sloppy and a rush job.
I noticed the part where they were showing off their "art" their proud of and that shit is middle school level of skill
I hope in 2021 actual artists who do youtube as a hobby, phase out these hacks
Between baylee and nerdcrafter Idk whose face im more sick of seeing.
Does nerdcrafter always have to make the same stupid face. It'll get stuck like that if she keeps it up
File: 1607639448820.png (553.88 KB, 742x413, yt.PNG)
Cupquakes art was cute imo. I think Lavendertownes segment was also creative and her art style worked for it. I didn't watch the full video though, it was honestly a little corny lol
Also, can someone please explain wtf pic is supposed to be? A salt shaker with a youtube logo?
She has this persona called SaltECrafter who usually pulls that stupid face. She also calls her fans (salt) grains, and it's a running gag that she and her fans breath salt or smth. Salt is her theme that's why she has the salt shaker as logo. (Better than her Pokemon ripoff merch.)
I liked the segment when she showed off her sculptures bc her smile was really genuine, every youtuber had a fake smile. I really laughed at Rae, she was even trashier than Baylee.
I would refuse to participate in this cringefest too if I was an actually skilled artist and tacked on to be a token poc for their shitty video.
It shows their lack of diversity especially a majority of them live in North America and how closed off the youtuber artists circle jerk group is, harping how they care about blm but can't find a single black artist for their video
Literally wtf was she thinking putting that little blurb in? How is it that not anyone is pointing out that is actually more racist for her to be saying that? “sorry we couldn’t get our token black people! Hopefully they’ll participate in our degenerate shit video next year :(“
I havnt watched these two artists Minnie and Alphonso before. Alphonso seems alright but Minnies work and content is leagues above most art you tubers.
I posted this in the previous thread but I expected this, when I started seeing clone high become more popular online I knew this would happen
With the setting of clone high they can head canon as many serial killers as they want, I expected Bundy and Dahmer

I actually like the 'couture' style, ngl. I just wish they didn't create the newer seasons (everything after season 3 I believe) with a younger audience in mind. They completely rid the girls of any personality.
One thing I hope they'll never do again are those 3d models, so incredibly ugly.

Kaneblob who was outed for tracing finally released a statement months later https://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1srgj0e
Notably she only apologized to popular artists she copied and ignored the other accusations.
Oh shit, I liked her OC.
It seems like this year many popular anime artists get called out for tracing

I'm still trying to find individual posts but this was a big example at the time.
Left - > original pic by rei_17
Right -> the piece Kaneblob made for a Pixiv x Studio Trigger
I remember allegations that Kane either traced the entire BG to be almost identical or just flat out photobashed it and just added some small details.
TBH you can find a ton of proof if you google "Kaneblob traces".

Samefagging once more (last time I promise).
Muh heavy referencing lmao girl >>692583
is plagiarism and extremely embarrassing. Doesn’t have to be 1:1 tracing to be theft.
Alphonzo is an IRL teacher and has years of experience with art. Other than some minor drama around alleged plagiarism earlier this year, he's relatively lowkey. Minnie is skilled as well, but she's younger and more appealing to the minimalist art hoe crowd. Genuine and professional-level skill intimidates kids and beginners, so they flock to those who either have 'fun' personalities or approachable art.
A lot of, if not most, good black artists on YT tend to be industry professionals or at least skew towards an older audience. It's probably because black artists can't exactly gain a big audience on annoying personalities or their appearance alone. Not in the same way a white woman could. >>692381
IIRC, but the girl to the left of Stella is supposed to be Aisha, right? She looks more whitewashed than Flora. Lol Winx should have ended after the first series.
I'm pretty much sure those who calling out Kaneblob for tracing are either jealous of her popularity who want to cancel her.
I see some similiarities in the BNA promo artwork she did with Rei17's art. While other artworks, i dont see many similarities unless the gwendolyn from odin sphere as well as princess mononoke and Haku from spirited away do look like an overused composition/concept.
File: 1607740832057.png (621.54 KB, 941x1920, static-assets-upload1192538230…)
Yes that's Aisha. Atleast Fiora was already light, but I have no idea who thought it was a good idea to lighten Aisha that much.
>>692704>I'm pretty much sure those who calling out Kaneblob for tracing are either jealous of her popularity who want to cancel her.
Whether or not that's true, it wouldn't erase the fact that >>692573
is a very obvious copy. The other ones look heavily inspired, and imo it looks kinda shady that they're being so inspired by that one particular artist.
ah yes, i bet everyone is SO jealous of the fact that kaneblob traces or at the very least heavily copies concepts and compositions to the point pixiv actually removed her piece from the collab it was doing with studio trigger
after it was outed as a copy of rei17's work and some of the japanese artists she "heavily referenced" actually stated their discomfort in the pieces' similarities.
wow everyone is so jealous.
Lol remember the one who called her out getting called out too for manipulative and abusive
Flora might look like a tanned girl, but she's canonically latina.
It's such a weird cast choice, netflix puts all variety of poc actors in their series all the time.
Meant to reply to the replied post about >jealousy
>>692726>The ol 'they're not from earth so they don't correspond to earth races' excuse.
Don't be daft. They may not be from earth but it's not like they're from some sort of alien fairy race. They're obviously supposed to correspond with human racial phenotypes and the creators have verified that certain characters are of non-white races. Musa is east asian, Aisha is black and Flora is latina. >>692704
People can hold others accountable for their fuckery without being jealous. You don't have to hate somebody to know when they've done something wrong.

i'm so tired of everyone on the internet including people on here being autistic about the slightest change in a character's skintone like it matters… and in this case >>692381
she's still markedly darker than the other ones.
that's chris-chan tier "sonic doesn't have blue arms" discourse.
That doesn't even look remotely like the same character, it's not a slight change dumbass. She's barely even a shade of brown at that point. No one would mind the changes if they actually looked good and kept with the personality of other characters.
Imagine being so stupid when it comes to character design you actually have to mention CC because you're too autistic to understand the basics of why it's visually ugly and unappealing.

Instagram artists have a huge victim complex, the never STFU about " the algorithm "and now that Instagram is gonna test disabling story shares for posts they're seething and pissing all over themselves because their only audience is from S4S and shares in general and can't take the idea of building genuine audience without having to beg for shares and likes on everything, they legit always say "Instagram is not a place for artists" or "Instagram is against artists" IDK what's stopping them from going to any other actual art platform other than them knowing they can't get as much followers and interaction as what they already have.
I can't wait until story shares are gone for good so I don't have to go through 40 stories that are just shares or have to thank people for sharing my stuff along with other 39 artists.
Yeah they are meant to look like humans, but latin people aren't the only ones with tan skin, and african people aren't the only ones with dark skin. They aren't human and can't correspond to the human ideas surrounding race because race is something arbitrary that we made up. There are so many ethnic groups with overlapping phenotypes, and someone from africa may have more genetically in common with someone from europe than with another african person.
Race in this situation is ambiguous, since there are a shit ton of ethnic groups that can look like flora. If you want to cast a woman of color is doesnt even really matter whether she's half black or latina, as long as she just looks like the character.
There really isn't a good platform for amateur artists atm. Artstation is for professionals, dA is full of weird ass shit, tumblr became much less popular and the artists went onto twitter and IG; twitter sucks if you primarily want to look at pictures and IG has sucky quality and a superficial F4F community.
I've grown a decent following on IG despite tHe AlgOrItHm. Still think that IG culture sucks for artists. It rewards you if you post the same aesthetic stuff daily without any change in your style. Good luck improving when all you draw is portraits of white girls with the same features and some flowers sprinkled on top. But it's still true that a lot of less than mediocre artists think that the only thing standing in their way is the algorithm when they are just not that good.
The energy they put into this crying shit could be put in better places. It's so exhausting to see; my jadedness is turning into pity. People are so hung up on numbers, they overlook more dedicated and specialized places to use; niche audiences. More for the rest of us, I guess. It's slow, but rewarding.>>693014
IG hasn't improved anything beyond ads and tools for small businesses and influencers. It's good for quick consumption visuals. IG has its place in the world, but these people fighting for likes and proper shares need to stop and re-evaluate their priorities. I think it's okay for an artist who does quick to make, easy-to-digest artwork, and is just up for the challenge.
I do wonder if the lawsuit against FB, who owns IG, will effect things.

so I was browsing through my regular instagram feed and came across cyarine’s story posts
I don’t really care about repost accounts, but the way she was talking about these accounts having “hundreds and thousands of followers” while she already has a million on ig, making her one of the most followed artists on there, just rubs me the wrong way.
i know low-effort content is looked down upon, but I see repost accounts as fair game. no one ever complains about twitter/tumblr repost accounts?
I have to disagree with you lol
they aren’t “hacks” their videos are geared towards non-serious hobbyists
they aren’t the types of yt artists that show you a fine art graphite drawing timelapse, what brushes to use, or how to properly construct a face, because those are too intense for beginners
that’s the problem I have with people looking down upon tiktok artists, because their function is to make art easier for those who only want to use it for fun or personal enjoyment
Copycat cyarine has a point here though, there are so many Instagram profiles that just repost artwork by others without their permission, often without even giving credit and sometimes they just take the artwork from other similar pages so the artwork becomes completely orphaned. These accounts aren't sharing creations by artists they love, they're content mills using art to grow their platform big enough until they can profit by selling promos and feature ads.
Just search any kind of adjective and "art", there are thousands of these pages.
It's true that the same thing used to happen on Tumblr, but I'm those cases there wasn't money being made through it and Tumblr had a culture that was more supportive of giving credit to artists.
I'm pretty mixed on it tbh. Like… I know that the animation as far as Indie goes was pretty decent and the song number while very random, was nice. But I dunno, all the excessive swearing and just atmosphere of it all didn't really pull me. It partly comes off as middle school, edge-lordy and awkward. I can sometimes like edgy tone like for example, I really liked Becky Primm but Helluva Boss just feels like it's trying too hard if that makes sense?
Overall it's not completely terrible but it wasn't my favorite.
Could be because of connections/networking, maybe? Vivziepop is pretty big, established animator with widely popular projects (such as the Die Young video) plus her Hazbin Hotel not only exploded in popularity whether you like it or hate it, but a studio even decided to pick it up. I'd say that at this point she must have some good connections in the animation industry after all of that. Good enough for her projects to receive a decent push like what's happening with Helluva Boss.
But yeah, Vivziepop's projects are slowly leaving the "indie" bracket for sure.
Oh right. Yeah I suppose you're right that it's not really an indie project anymore since they have so much financial backing enough to hire big named actors and singers with established contracts. So fair point is. I'm sure that there is some flaws in the animation but it was serviceable enough to not be much of an issue, at least not for a casual viewer.
It's just for me personally the tone is just… Not my taste which is weird for me to say because as I mentioned in my other comment, I usually can appreciate some edgy-ish tone in cartoons but it just comes off a bit tryhard with Helluva Boss.

Her rant on insta before she deleted
Same anon who you responded to. Yeah exactly. IF the shock humor was more toned down or removed, I could appreciate it more and it could definitely pass as a kid show though I'm okay with adult animation as well, I just hate things that try to be in your face with it's shock factor, it comes off as childish and appeals to the lowest common audience and if you enjoy it, that's fine. I wish I could share in the love for it but I just can't, at least not yet anyway. >>693835
Yeah same though I'll be honest that I gave Hazbin a pass because it was the first I watched of Vivziepop's. Still felt forced but I was able to kinda push it aside but then we got Helluva Boss and it's following the same tone shtick that Hazbin had and it's just obnoxious. And it's not like Vivzie isn't capable of balancing things, her Unlucky Jacky short was actually pretty balanced I thought and it'd be cool if she could do that with Hazbin Hotel and Helluva Boss. >>693974
I asked this in the last thread and from what I saw, it's mostly for 2 reasons. 1 because people are drooling over the character JFK for some weird reason and 2, because it's apparently getting a reboot and the news spread like wildfire with these obsessive kind of fans.

>>694051>wasn't that POC enough for them?
absolutely not. the idea that lightskinned east asians aren't "real" poc has been around since ye olde days of tumblr.
I loved this more than the pilot and the first episode, and I think the characters in Helluva Boss feel more fleshed out than the ones in Hazbin. The middle school humor is still there but maybe it kinda balanced out with the plot here. Or maybe I just like the owl design (which isn't completely red or pink), the voice actors and the animation in some parts.>>694051
It's because he's too white (and we know pale asians cannot exist) and normally doesn't look like a racist stereotype.

Gross. I’m not amused by some pornsick freak stalking someone online to pump out coomer fan art.
And I thought it was proper twitter artist etiquette to ask before drawing someone’s OC? I think @ddawnniee’s design and drawing are pretty bad, but even I’d be grossed out/offended if my stalker redrew my character because he found it fap worthy.

Stumbled across this person's account today and saw this rant. I could sympathize if it weren't for the fact that she's comparing herself to an artist way above her skill level, and the reason why she hasn't blown up as much as that artist despite drawing the same things is because her art sucks, that's all there is to it. In fact, she has 8k followers and that's already WAY more than I would expect for the mediocre stuff she puts out.
File: 1608041496301.jpg (754.59 KB, 1212x809, comparison.jpg)
For reference, her art vs the art of the person she's talking about (lovelyrosebun). Truly puzzling as to why they don't get the same amount of clout.
Looking up this bustingshirts person on twrt I found this masterpost about him https://m.imgur.com/a/IcV7s
. In short he does stalks, harass,and is obsess over other artist for not giving his fanart attention.
This person just sounds awfully entitled and attention-hungry. Going 'UGH HOW IS THIS NON-BLACK ARTIST SO MUCH MORE POPULAR THAN ME' when the other artist is LEAGUES above her skill level is just sad. Admit that you're not good enough skill-wise and move on to try to improve yourself.
Also is it just me or there are more POC artist support hashtags popping up on Twitter lately? Almost every day I see a different hashtag to promote POC artists roaming around. I'm not complaining, just curious.

Thank you anon this is a whole thread in itself. I just assumed this was another RacistUncle type of coomer trying to become notorious by trolling, I had no idea the guy was so delusional. I've never come across this specific type of mental illness
Pic related was a personal highlight
One thinks they're entitled to a bigger following because they're black despite having shit art even though they have lots of followers; the other is someone who's better skilled, but is shameless about cashing in on a movement and using styles and aesthetics they've seen in popular black art but don't understand the context behind. The absolute state of social media artists. Both of them need a reality check.>>694543
I think it's just a lot more noticeable these days. This #imactuallyblack one is an unfortunate mess because it puts identity over hard work and talent. I get it, and it's a tag even I could participate in. But this isn't the way. Getting people to follow you because you're a token and not because they appreciate your talent isn't sustainable. Who you are should be secondary, not a marketing point.

File: 1608079586076.jpg (278.82 KB, 2048x768, 20201216_084144.jpg)
Can concept artfags tell me if there's any significance to this ratio (extra wide) in concept art? I see it a lot with different artists idk if it's just their preference or an industry standard
I can kind of understand the argument. If a black artist draws art depicting black people, they are often ignored and neglected. But when a nonblack artist draws black people, they are praised for being amazing allies and "brave" for diversifying their art. It's frustrating for many because nonblack artist are profiting off black bodies while not enduring any significant racism or barriers in the art world. The hurt is real.
But in the context of alterego, their art is just plain ugly. So, it is no surprise lovelyrosebun has garnered a following.
If she corrected someone then she would have been called out anyway, just earlier. Maybe her intentions weren't even bad, who knows. It could be that she's exploited the BLM movement just for clout or the BLM movement made her realize that she didn't draw black people before and so she began doing that. Then she sells the prints because honestly they're her drawings, they're not disrespectful and she just can.
Anyway the answer is to just draw white people if you're white, because someone is always going to find some retarded reason to cancel you otherwise.

Eh I don't think so. GI doesn't pump out the same degenerate amounts of coomer fanservice to reach FGO's level. It's just the popular japanese gacha rpg of the season with pretty waifus and husbandos like Arknights or whatever.
Gacha-wise though GI is actually worse than FGO lol
>>695065>respond to anyone who assumed she was black
Does this mean people were directly referencing that they thought she was black? Or are we expecting artists to just pre-emptively state they are white in case someone mistakes them for being black without saying so and then likes their work because of it?
I started drawing more racial variation just to avoid sameface and so I want to avoid anything like this happening.
I don't post selfies, and writing "white" on my bio sounds like some KKK shit.
gi doesn't have the same amount of coomer content fgo does but it has a ton of stuff to pander to lolicon degens and a bunch of generic pretty anime boys to attract horny fujos to start shipping them.
but i can see where >>695293
is coming from, usually fgo fanart from eastern artists is like the top breadwinner but gi is starting to threaten its position. just look at pixiv's top illustrations of the day.

Twitter artists are desperate for validation and exposure but without the need of having actual good art skills and the easiest way to get that is through artist hashags where they can go 'I AM POC/NEURODIVERGENT/QUEER/WHATEVER ELSE NOW LOOK AT MY ART AND GIVE ME LIKES OR YOU'RE EVIL'.

With no respect, that's the dumbest thing I've heard all day as someone with adhd
it's not like they're drawing with no hands or building rockets so why do they need asspats isn't it enough to just feel weird for being an art kid? From my experience the majority of art students all have a learning disability or mental health issues so it's not even rate.
I hate this timeline of pity Olympics, I want out.

Making studies Patreon exclusive is something I haven’t really heard of.
This video's been floating around in my head for weeks now and I remembered this thread exists.
Every time I'd rewatch it I'd notice some new little detail. She's just so mad
over a single stupid comment. I'm sure it's exaggerated for the camera in some attempt to be funny/cute tho
We've had this convo dozens of times of before but what ev I guess.
In my opinion yes artist can charge whatever they want for their work, after all art is a luxury item. If people are willing to pay $1000 for furry porn then that artist's work is worth $1000.
Now I do agree with you that some artist basically price themselves out of making money but that problem may not entirely be attached to the quality of the art itself so much as a small size of said artist's audience.
This topic has popped up so many times I feel like there isn't much more we can add to the debate that hasn't already been brought up multiple times.

I know that Sakimichan's artistic decline is far from a new topic and everyone and their mom has noticed her pieces looking duller and lazier by the day, but what baffles me is how some Sakimi-clones look so much better compared to her own art.
One example is Zumidraws. Sure, it's still coomer fap material with questionable anatomy but compared to Sakimichan's art this looks WAY better and more polished. Hell even the anatomy looks less ridiculous. Am I the only one noticing this? Why do people still give a shit about Sakimichan if her clones are starting to pump out art that look superior?
(Spoiler for coomer art)
The anatomy is kinda fucked in some placed but I can see where you're coming from yeah, this looks more interesting to look at than everything Sakimi has produced this entire year.
I actually like the rendering on the wings and the hair.
well his progress video for each work are way longer sakimi
but his full figure pieces are a bit stiffer
The original Pixiv link is listed here!
Artists "overpricing" is actually good for the current internet art market. It raises the average price for commissions and you get less artists unfairly underselling themselves.
But eh, that's an old topic everyone is tired of.

Why do twitter artists like to beg so much
Honestly? I wouldn't be surprised. They are claiming that theyre latine/asian/black, which I never questioned before (we were mutuals). But seeing that theyre claiming they have DID, I wonder if they picked these races to have a say for things. Im not saying it is impossible to be all three races, but the way they go about their race is odd.
They refused to post a selfie for #imreallyblack too, which adds to my suspicions that they might not be black.

Not that I know of? Even for their artvsartist meme, they use a brown animal crossing character. Which is ironic because two artists (babs and rose) were called out for blackfishing because they used their animal crossing character to present themselves with darker skintone.
Alterego and her friends (teachiko, sa1ntcake, etc) called them out for this

Same anon, but I noticed that they used a lighter skin for a picrew meme… Now I am really suspicious if this is a white artist
File: 1608310213780.png (18.82 KB, 519x219, lmao.png)
I thought it was fake oh my god
At this point Im guessing Alterego is a white latine. This one artist I used to follow (periciaris or whatever) is a white latine who would post selfies but comment how the filter makes her look too white. That she isnt white!! She swears!! But she is obviously pale/white passing.
A few other latine artists I follow have similar insecurities of being too pale for some reason? Im not latine myself, but does anyone know why?(racebait)
I'm a white-passing latine, but I don't have any insecurities regarding my skintone.
My guess about those people is that they're afraid that if they're too pale, other people/Twitter won't believe that they're latine and will just write them off as white/caucasian? Like they don't want to be seen as white for whatever reason. Idk, weird Twitter logics.

What does the part about being robbed at "virtual gunpoint" even mean
Kinda off-topic but what’s the point of doing an art vs artist if you’re not even using a pic of yourself? I get not wanting to show your face but that’s what the meme is for. Guess she just wanted to use the hashtag or something.>>696914
People who are actually afraid of oppression would see being white-passing as a good thing, but then you can’t virtue signal or beg for pity on the internet. If she looks white then she’s not afraid of being bullied for being POC, she’s afraid of being bullied for looking white.
(I hate this new pressure to show your face online to “prove” you’re a certain race, not only is it stupid but also unsafe if you’re not prepared to have the entire internet know who you are… that’s a whole different discussion though.)
Kek of course she's a fattie. >>696917
You could be all three, if one of your parents is biracial or something.
I feel like you're one of her friends.
Twitter is extremely leftist, a white artist just got dragged to filth for being white and drawing black characters. Posting selfies to prove shes black would only bolster the amount of pity likes/retweets she gets. Being white would make her lose all of her followers because it would prove what a hypocrite she is. have you never used twitter or something? You have to be black etc etc to get attention. It only works to be white and conventionally attractive irl.(racebait )
While its true black artists are forced to endure abuse and racism online, there has been a rising issue of nonblack artists blackfishing for attention. This is not a twitter exclusive issue, ive seen this brought up in lipstick alley, to twitter, hell– some black exclusive reddits ask you to take a photo of your arm for proof.
Even before twitter became popular, there had been many white folks on tumblr who would post things like ~as a black person~
Knowing this context, seeing alterego and her friends drag people out for blackfishing, at the same time seeing Ego refusing to share proof that she is black is suspicious.

also what does this mean
using common sense>I feel like you're one of her friends.
cancel culture exists and people do drag white people for dumb shit, but lets not pretend twitter is a haven for leftist liberals where racism doesn't exist.
literal celebrities like kelly marie tran received so much racist abuse on twitter that it made her quit social media.
you sound like one of those "white people are more oppressed than people of color nowadays" dumbasses. also nice samefagging, sage next time yeah.
Not saging just for you.
I am literally black and proved it but got "uhm ur white and spray tan" Because it's hard for white people who have never met black people to understand that we do not all act and think the same, I guess? It's super weird. I don't feel oppressed and I do not pass as white. But I should because you think I should?
Not them but>Because it's hard for white people who have never met black people to understand that we do not all act and think the same, I guess?
This projection, kek. Do you feel better after trying to gaslight and downplay how actual black people have been treated?
Also, we don’t all have BPD here.

Why do artists on Twitter complain about capitalism so much? As an artist myself, I don't understand.
If drawing for money sucks so much and all you wanna do is draw your OCs then get a common job and keep art as a hobby? Save for extremely specific situations there's nothing in life forcing you to work with art. This whining about 'ebil capehtalism' is so old and annoying.
How do you get this good at rendering but suck so bad at anatomy? Like how is it possible? I don't fucking understand. I think the lighing, textures and shading here is absolutely gorgeous but jesus that anatomy and foreshortening is just horrendous even for coomer art. Someone please explain how this works because I don't get it. Do they offshore the rendering for some Chinese slave workers or something?>>696833

To be fair GI has a much cleaner record when it comes to lolicoomer pandering, the few little girl characters are pretty nonsexual (albeit admittedly pandering). FGO on the other hand has multiple, shamelessly sexualized skimpily clad lolis in its character selection. Vtubers seem to be the most popular trend with cumbrains at the moment though, haven't seen much GI or FGO art around. Or maybe I'm just not looking for it.>>697209>Wouldn't #drawingwithBPD be a redundancy in art Twitter?

Imagine thinking capitalism invented art holy fuck anon
I think what he meant is a critique of how commercial art production is soul sucking, forces people into unreasonable deadlines which hurt art quality and creativity, etc. I think it’s fair, art generally turns out better if you take your time developing it instead of churning anime comissions every two days
Speaking of which, it cracks me up that beavs was criticizing cyberpunk 2077 for its themes and bad quality and the whole crunch thing, considering she bent backwards to excuse naughtydog when it did the exact same. And then replies to that same tweet about capitalism saying its bad for art and how she wishes she could just draw horses. Just- the cognitive dissonance of it all (for the record cp2077 is a bad, buggy scrote game)

backpedaling now. I understand the original sentiment but people should know that having an opinion on twitter is a bad idea and will be taken in the most extreme, bad faith interpretation possible
>>697621>I've noticed sometimes artists will get callout posts made for them for having "suspicious" amounts of people blocked before
Tbh I never see a tweet about callout for "supicipous" blocking
But In Real Note, I blocked some of people in twitter because for safety and sanity reason. I don't want stupid people find my art account.
This also including some people who love to start shit with no reason
Pedos and grooming are a real problem in the art community, but I assure you there are groups of people who are good to be around. You just have to search a little and interact with the people that have similar tastes as you and that you like. Twitter and Tumblr tend to be shitty places, but I think that discord and DeviantArt (especially now that a lot of people left) can be nice places to share art and find your little group of people. You're gonna find toxic
people everywhere, you just have to ignore and block.
I think what happens is someone realizes they're blocked even though they never directly interacted with the artist and, being the type that has a victim
complex, decides to make a fuss over it. If the person making a fuss has enough of a following then other people may notice they're blocked too and it snowballs

So… Anyone wanna talk about Artbreeder and the impact it could have on the art world? I mean, there’s already been drama about people passing off AI-created art as their own, and the website even has a furry category.
On one hand it scares me that AI could become so advanced that it makes developing art skill pointless, but on the other a lot of the trending portraits are the same face over and over, since the people making them aren’t creative (or maybe just faceblind). Art skill can be faked much more easily than good ideas. We already have tracing and photobashing, after all. Or do you guys think that AI will never be able to replace the trained eye of a human?
I think at a certain point, using ArtBreeder or things like it will be considered creating art the same way collages and photomanips are.
You're basically remixing a bunch of different images/styles, and the idea to mix them and how you go about it would technically be your own.
Obviously, actually creating art would be more valuable and respectable, but companies and individuals more preoccupied with getting things quickly might think differently, depending on what they want.
I do think artists are going to be replaced with ai, that's inevitiable. What bothers me is that they train the network on images that they don't own. From their TOS:

Meet another asian/black artist who thinks that thanks to her "heritage" she's the perfect mangaka out there.
Some years ago she announced that she's gonna study game design in cologne and that she got a scholarship for it thanks to her talent. And now every year around spring/late autumn she talks about going to interviews for scholarships and that she's gonna start university. Or that she started university, but in Germany you need up to 4 years to finish your degree so it doesn't make any sense to switch university every semester. Unless you keep failing your exams.
Regular suicide baiting, she once had a gofundme to get money for her copics, because every artist needs copics.
She regulary traces popular fanarts and sells them. Fanart of Disney characters, Nintendo and other easy to trace stuff.
And she keeps bragging about having PTSD and anxiety and depression. And that she nearly had Borderline and Schizophrenia. And she loves suicide baiting. Likes going to the ER for stitches and get send home after a few hours.
And she's a published mangaka even though she never published a manga.
There are still some smaller sites for showing off your work. Depending on the kind of work you make, you've got PaperDemon, NewGrounds, Pixiv. Though the last two may have the same issue as deviantArt, PaperDemon is smaller and has an okay community. There's also Tumblr. As long as you aren't constantly reblogging random memes to flood your timeline, it's a good way to link and share your work. The tagging and commenting system have improved a lot.
Your last option would be just making your own website to link to people. But honestly, while no place is going to be perfect, anything is better than relying on twitter's media tab to show your work.
I'll admit that I haven't browsed PD all that much, but I just post art to it and don't browse. I use these places for their gallery functions and not their community.
That's why I don't really understand the complaints. You want a place to show off your work, but concerned about what others are posting. Why not just make your own website? I'm not excusing the gross shit, and I can understand being concerned about fucked up recommended art popping up in feeds alongside yours, but it seems like every art community aside from Artstation (and even then…) is plagued with this shit.

I believe "use an iPad" is a reference to the small discourse that happened in some art twitter circles today, unfortunately common mentality in art schools https://twitter.com/KerinCunningham/status/1340727280893644800
posted is the best take. Do whatever, as long as you don't take somebody else's ideas / art and it's legal; all that will ever matter is the final result.
Hm, depends on the viewpoint. I wouldn't wonder if those people complaining teach gallery art and not commercial art - which is also what >>699055
refers to. Sure you can use digital and 3d models and stuff to plan your piece before transferring it onto the canvas but I wouldn't expect a poster of a fully fleshed-out piece done in Procreate in an art gallery.
This is an interesting context to consider. I guess it depends on the kind of art you want to pursue, but I can see how thinking "easy" can stunt your growth as an artist. You can still "work smart" without taking the "easy" route. Working smart still requires attention to detail and craftsmanship without wasting time reinventing the wheel.
That being said, do wonder the background of the teacher as >>699115
pointed out. I do wonder if it may be an issue of HOW it's being used, and not WHAT is being used.
Anon, there’s tons of digital art in galleries and museums. It’s been like this for years.>>699213
I’m sure most artists have thought this way. It’s pretty easy to curate your feeds to avoid stuff that looks like shit these days, especially on sites like Instagram that have no share-to-feed/RT/RB functions. I find that growth on there is spectacularly easy after the Reels thing launched. I wouldn’t give up on posting work entirely, though I do hope for a new “fixed tumblr” type place eventually.
A lot of blogs actually are well optimized to pop up in search engines based on the content of your individual posts, so you already have the ability to put yourself out there and be searched for, front and center, with the right keywords via Google. You can also use that as your base, and share your blog posts to social media with built in APIs and RSS feeds. This usually increases the relevance of your website. In other words, you can have a popular website without a social media presence, but the social media presence, if done through your website, is a bonus. You make people leave the social media and be immersed in your blog.
Keep in mind, however, that some social media websites are funny about outside URLs because they make money from ad revenue. Twitter is notorious about it, but the rest? Not so much.
If nothing else, look at making a blog more like curating something that's a part of your art vs relying on social media that just frames your art like cheap content. It's not either/or. Do both.

okay but the Rei one is just perfect. He did my girl justice
People have been tracing reference stuff forever, long before computers were even a thought. Look up graphic illustration tools, and tools the old masters used.
In the case of backgrounds, a 3D model that you legally obtained for the purpose of saving time, or even one that you built yourself is fine. If you're a hobbyist who enjoys reinventing the wheel over and over or just enjoys making backgrounds from scratch, that's totally fine. The rest of us need to eat, or enjoy the problem solving/drafting process that comes with creating. The 3D stuff is amazing for worldbuilding, especially if you're working on a comic and you want your setting(s) consistent. The effects applied to the models still have to match your style. Learning how to work with shaders takes skill; the computer won't do it for you.
I guess by the same logic, when you draw a straight line with an actual pencil and a real ruler, the ruler is doing the work for you. You're not doing anything at all.
You’re 100% right about this. Before computers, and sometimes even still, illustrators and comic artists would use pre-made perspective grid sheets with a lightbox. It’s not even ancient history, you can still buy these things at craft stores.
To a trained eye, more obvious assets look like garbage, but most readers don’t pay too much attention or simply don’t care. That’s why there are those capeshit floppies that are basically rendered entirely in Poser. If an artist wants to make them more “fluent” with their art, for lack of a better word, it absolutely still takes a good amount of skill and understanding.
There's a lot of combining 3D and 2D especially in concept art work, since there's just no gain spending additional time making sure given character has exact same body / face proportions on every image - and 3D model base will ensure it does.
Additionally, the video attached shows very cool thing that can be done in Blender, I see no reason to not use a handy tool like that if available.
Honestly, I never hear that custom brushes are bad, normally it goes the other way, like:>you need this said custom brush, because this artist uses it, and it’ll make you a better artist if you use them like them
Personally I just use the default brushes and mix them up when colouring lol

The comments in this Clip Studio commercial are comparing Michelle Phan's art to Meyoco
But Michelle Phan only support asian creators.
And that other one is propably cheaper than Meyoco
I think a lot of you might not know who Michelle Phan is but in her ad she's pretending she drew the work that she commissioned for her comic cook. You can also see her trying to draw in certain points of the video and it looks fucking horrible. So I'm sure that drink art isn't hers either.
She used to use copyright music all the time in her videos and get away with it because she was a big youtuber back then when they were beginning to crack down on it. Not that I care just showing she doesn't gaf.
Giveaways, fanart and drawing art for new releases (like fanart for a new movie that’s just come out).

You can try more 'passive streams' of income like setting up a shop, making more generic/cute-sy art that sells well as merch, opening a youtube channel for the ad revenue/sponsors (tho that takes ages).
Though honestly if you need the money and your art isn't good enough to make any money just get a job. There's no shame in it.

I really enjoy Heikala's art, and I know she's never been very detailed when it comes to faces, but I feel like with her last few artworks, the faces keep getting weirder and sloppier too

Thoughts on this artist? Apparently they are a gachatuber that does Gacha versions of the Zodiac Signs personification and cause of that they got 100k subs so far. However, I am not really a big fan of their artstyle and character designs.
The thing that bothers me the most is that they draw slight nsfw and implented r*pe and sexual/physical abuse ect. into the Zodiac signs character backstories while using Gacha club which have mainly children attracted to Gacha videos.
(In one of their community post, they had Capricorn "ROASTING" Aquarius by literally insulting her abusive past, quote "says that one that got kidnapped by a god and used as a sex toy and alchohol slave," and keep in mind most of their fans are under the age of 18 and some of the top comments are thinking that Capricorn is savage. I'm sorry, saying shit like that is not cool it is highkey disrespectful and rude and I'm ashamed that the Gachatuber wrote somebody's trauma as "roasting") Idk their age but if they are like a minor that will be really weird. Hopefully somebody could talk some sense to them or at least make it so their content ism clearly not for kids.
It does sound fucked up, but since you are mentioning that they are apparently a minor maybe they will grow out of this phase by making fucked up things. Their art is certainly not a masterpiece, they do seem like they have potential tho.
Again, they will grow out of it somehow, still them being a minor doesn't mean they are immune to criticism. Also as the anon above me said, you're either retarded for following them or that this is a self post basically.

her strength is painting nature. Her human figures have always been a bit wonky, but you don't really notice until she draws more complex or dynamic poses.
Drop better hints
Censor his name.
Don't tease us with skim milk, give us full-fat whole.
Do you know what site are you on.>>704369
Drop the @ anon, provide milk.
You do know that rape was originally censored on twitter because phrases can be searched and found, right? Not because the literally spelling of r*pe “doesn’t trigger
. Jesus, both the artist that op posted and op themselves reak of underage that need a break from the internet/twitter
It depends on what you need the money for. If you're trying to reduce college debt or paying for rent/food - get a job. If you just want fun money, it's better to use the free time you have to develop skills for future employment.
This last bit of advice is less applicable to college students, but more for later on. Don't feel like you have to choose between a job and art. Realistically you aren't going to spend 8+ hours a day drawing. Some people can, but most will burn out or injure themselves. You will have plenty of time to both work and draw once you're done with school.
Thank you for the information. I never knew it was originally from Twitter. I thought the word was meant to be triggering
. I could have never thought of it
This is the most twitterfag post I ever saw. The art is shit, your milk sucks, end of story. Try again when you're over 18. >>704638
Lmao do you think someone who gets "triggered
" over the word rape doesn't realize what "r*pe" stands for?

On the topic of artists drawing themselves, what do farmers like? I noticed most people do things like drawing themself normal (sometimes more attractive or uglier), use an animal or sometimes a weird thing like an object. I think I like animals the most but sometimes they look ‘off’ like Dobson’s blue bear

Is it just me or does the one on the left look creepishly underage? Like something about it just looks so pedo-y or 12 year old ish. Its kind of one of those "lets give this girl all features of a 12 year old but slap on some ti ties and maybe some hips" the one on the right isn't much better.
good for him just monetizing his practice studies however.
Gotta say I'm really tired of seeing art youtubers preach and preach about how you can make money as an artist and yet they don't even know how, they just are monetizing their 15 seconds of fame
he just screws up with proportion and makes the head too big
I don't think this is a study
since it has way fewer body detail compare to his studies
i think it looks fucked up because he ripped off the Disney sameface of recent 3D movies like Rapunzel and Frozen, which are associated with little girls
definitely gives me underage vibes too.

I find it funny that the one comic artist I adored as a middle schooler went from drawing American comic book covers to making illustrations for Japanese books and BL. Can’t say I blame her for doing that instead.
I think ergojosh seems like a really nice guy and I like his filming setup and aesthetic, but yeah all he does is sketches and studies. I kinda think it's because he's not drawing what he truly wants to so he never finishes anything. And his skill seems high based on the "sketches" but he can never push past that stage.
However he has definitely cornered the "art advice and inspiration from Youtubers" market and does it very well.

thought oceans patreon print for the month was cute till I saw the gremlin hand and skewed fingernails.
nayrt but are you guys blind ? it's a whole ass hand that looks distorted and weirdly wrinkly, certainly traced with no understanding of anatomy / adjustments to anime style. it's too bad bc the artist seems to know how to render
not to mention people paid for this…
it looks weird but it's still a nitpick. It's a minor detail that's pretty much unnoticeable.
if you have to point it out for it to be noticed or it looked cute otherwise, there's an 80% chance it's a nitpck.

not all drawing styles need to be structured or anatomically sound like you're drawing for animation. look at quentin blake's illustration style. pointing out wonkiness in a face or hand while ignoring the entire feel of an illustration isn't a good critique. these simple styles work because they're appealing. anatomically correct drawings aren't inherently appealing, a wonky face isn't inherently unappealing.
if you want to talk about how all these artists styles are carbon copies of each other with the same boring overused themes i'd agree with you
we /ic/ now>>704841
There’s a lot of skilled draftsman talent in indie circles these days, and they often get scooped up by animation which actually pays more than comics (unless you’re in traditional publishing by a big name, but even then)… that’s if they’re not endlessly whining on Twitter, of course.
>>705814>You could have a 'no NSFW art' policy, but then you would likely lose a huge part of the userbase (i.e. tumblr)
Sure, but did you ever need them there? I think instead of a blanket no nsfw, maybe no pornographic imagery might work instead. Also, what's wrong with alienating furries? They have lots of furry-only communities. Let there be one community they can't infest.
I personally don't see the issue with a site being by artists, for artists. If people want to get hired, there's ArtStation. If you want to be seen by the masses, there's social media. There's no where to really just connect with other artists. I miss that 2000s deviantArt community vibe.
I don't think F4F necessarily needs to be combated. On any site, there will be the people who live only for the numbers. Let them be.
You didn't mention anything about it, but I think a daily/weekly art showcase would be nice to have as long as it was manually selected instead of relying on things like likes/favorites/follows.
It's completely retarded. I wish I had a woke virtue signaling filter on my life so I never have to see another perfectly respectful creator grovel to a hoard of NEET internet addicts obsessed with creating new kinds of fictional victimhood.
Now she's proven she can be bullied and they won't stop. Next she'll be taking down all dark skinned dolls for racism and all light skinned dolls for white supremacy and all fantasy dolls for myth appropriation, and the unicorno repaints because unicorns create unrealistic standard of beauty for horses. This shit is a losing game.
So is it an issue of no one can make an artistic depiction of the wendigo,or is it that only aboriginal people can?
I don't understand the backlash,but i guess its not my culture so i cant say anything.
I do wish she kept the comments open though. So i could see what people were saying.
Wouldn't it be better to have people in the comments "educate" us? Because i feel like it would be beneficial.
I think the main difference is that the people who originally genuinely believed in Egyptian gods and dwarves and such are long dead, whereas indigenous cultures are still alive and present in the modern age. And the wendigo specifically is something that, like Mohammed, isn't supposed to be depicted, and means more than a just "a spooky myth" to indigenous people(iirc, that's my canadafag education).
Still think that the situation is a bit overblown, but understandable I guess
I'd respect someone making a doll out of Mohammed since they're pretty much risking their lives if they do that.
I think these slippery slopes to censor art are quite dangerous, but also natives have barely any cultural power at all, I feel for them. It's a more complex situation that the usual "cultural appropriation" bs because religion is in place.
If European people said they didn't want depictions of that specific demon, yeah. Why shouldn't they be respected? I don't get this logic.
It's not like it's the law, but understandably, people from that group will dislike it and see it as distasteful, and that's their right.
In the creator's position, I'd just make content with inspiration from a bunch of different cultures, and not explicitly name the Wendigo.
I'd just call it a "forest demon" or whatever. That concept is present in pretty much all cultures.
I think the solution isn’t to outright ban certain groups, but to limit users’ exposure to groups they’re not interested in. One of Deviantart’s huge problems was that fetish art regularly made it to the front page. If you don’t want to ban furries or porn then you’d have to work on the algorithm so that people don’t see shit they don’t want to see.
I personally wouldn’t have a problem with banning furries but I know it would cause a lot of drama, and also debate about what exactly counts as a furry, such as catgirls or cutesy children’s book illustrations of anthropomorphic characters. Banning porn and fetish art might be a better idea. Tumblr’s problem was that it already built a reputation and userbase centered around porn, and then banned porn. And then non-porn posts started getting deleted because they used some shitty algorithm to auto delete stuff.
and it's the right of whoever this person is to make culturally inspired dolls that may justly or unjustly seen as offensive, european or native or whatever, however classless it is… at least you don't have the double standard.
i hate how it's normal and expected now to be a weak bitch that bends under the pressure of the woke mob.
>>706079>respecting people's cultures when you use them for your art>woke mob
Nah, anon. That's just basic decency and consideration to those around you.
Woke mob is when someone spergs out at an artist for not drawing a non-binary bigender pansexual disabled trans woman or something. The two aren't the same.
Yes, if there wasn't the risk of literally being killed because of Muhammad kek
Guess what, Gods can be depicted by people who aren't part of the religion if it's nothing disrespectful. And even if it is, who the fuck cares about some lady making a doll of it.
>>706000>>> So is it an issue of no one can make an artistic depiction of the wendigo,or is it that only aboriginal people can?
My bad if your question was already answered in a way, but native/Algonquin people as a collective aren’t making wendigo dolls nor are they selling wendigo merch. >>706031
was exactly right. There is no properly faithful way to depict it because the most respectful thing in this situation was to not depict it at all.
As for general art depictions of entities of significant cultural/religious importance there’s so much Irish folklore that could be focused on. The neverending trend of Greek gods needs to come to a fucking head so Celtic mythology can have a turn. >>706115

Have you seen Wolfwalkers anon? I think you'd like it. It has a really good art book too, if you like the style.
And I agree. There's a lot to be inspired by in Celtic mythology. Plus a lot of the Greek mythology inspired stuff only scratches the surface of the mythos, usually without exploring any of the more niche characters and myths which can be interesting as well.
Thanks for answering,I really was confused over what the main root of the issue was.
I hope that the people telling her to take it down did so nicely, as it seemed she didn't intend to do any harm.
I had a similar feeling about someone I imitated back in deviantart days; I guess it's okay for a bit but don't cling on it too much, it can ruin you
Clinging on bullying experiences forever will make you bitter
1. Why did she buy two identical sets of R&L flat brushes if she's "not hoarding". They are affordable, ok, but buying identical brushes in bulk generally hints that you expect them to deteriorate soon, yet she praises the quality ("so bomb")? Am I just overanalyzing?
2. She calls 1 inch flat brush "large", but her canvas pannels are A3 at leats. Huh.
3. My personal trigger
. Regular cheap mannequins are and always were such a waste of money and recommending them for studies is a terrible advise in a world where internet and photographs of actual human beings exist. How the hell is anyone supposed to practice anatomy with that junk? "You can get them any pose that you want" they can't even raise their arms above shoulder level or, well, sit.
4. I kind of hope that in regular art shops in US one can actually buy a single pencil eraser (though I'd recommend koh-i-noor's over Faber Castell's, they seem softer, more efficient and make less dust) or a set of gelly rolls without those disposable blister packages, it seems a little wasteful.
5. For me 4$ for two charcoal pencils is a ripoff unless you're buying Conte a Paris thick core pencils. Why are they so expensive if they're made in US? Any other item seems somewhat reasonably priced.
6. God bless strathmore it's so hard to get where I live.
7. I dunno, crayola's pencils are ok, but a golden standard for school grade pencils, really? Perhaps it's a thing of accessibility, but Giotto's, Lyra's or Steadtler's products are much better quality-wise.
8. I know she's not a beauty guru, but her lips are giving me Kim Possible vibes.

Yep, same one. For some reason, they have scrubbed off dA more of the lotr/silmarillion stuff than ww2 stuff which is kinda interesting
Hopefully artists won't be too sad that some people from a group that were nearly wiped from their own country don't want to risk people bastardizing or uwu-ifying their culture.

It's basically retarded gen z weebs.
it's definitely a trend. Apple just fished a new market to sell a rapidly dying product (smartphones killed tablets almost immediately). People will swear to god it's revolutionary because they invested so much in it already and feel offended if told "you wasted money". It's not as reliable as a tablet. If you want to use it on pc, you have to buy a 3rd party app. If you want to draw on it with a decent program, they're all subscription based. You can't use a pirated copy of adobe programs on it. If you want to transfer your files to pc, it's an headache. And as you said, you're dealing with a company that kills their own products after less than 5 years.
Then again I do both digital and traditional, I don't feel the need to draw digital everywhere.
On a talk about wacom tablets, I have heard 13 cintiq wacom is horrible, while other screen wacoms are nice. I am thinking of buying myself a screen tablet from wacom later, but I am not too sure where to start with it. Which wacom screen version do you guys recommend?>>709414>>709428
Agree with these anons. My tablet from 2014ish is still doing well and I never had issues, however its an old wacom bamboo.
All of the criticisms in this thread are valid
, though I will say I enjoy using my iPad as a professional creator. I’ve had it since 2018 or so, and it’s helped me make several moderately-sized projects both in my studio and on the go. I am also fond of the Procreate app, I think the simplicity of it makes for a good digital sketchbook which is to say you can just open it up and start scribbling away without having to fuss too much with interface. If you’re on a budget or don’t need the portability, I think you could get a different screen tablet for your computer. Huion, XPPEN, Ugee, etc have sales kind of often and you can get a decent Cintiq if you’re good at eBay hunting.>>709461
The 13 inch is fine, though it feels a bit cramped if you’re used to drawing on paper. Maybe a 16 inch would be a good place to start, and if you find the glass screen too slippery you can always invest in a matte protector.
I hate Wacom just because it was like a virus on my pc and wouldn't let me install another tablet, I had to use a file shredder program for their Wacom drivers after uninstalling them, so I could use my new tablet after ditching their one. imo Wacom are overpriced and I get years out of my Huion tablets for way less money.
I wanna get a Huion screentablet at some point.
Well, that's bad luck. But I agree with you that their reparation fees can be insanely high – which every other tech company also does. I usually always have a protector on my phone but the one time I took it off, it fell and the LCD screen broke. Buying a new screen was around 300 EUR, so I decided to wait a few months for the newest iteration and just get a new phone instead.
No tech is made to work for decades nowadays. Even old school landline phones break at some point. It's just up to everyone what they need and which money they have. The only rule of thumb is that whenever something sounds too good for its price or the price sounds too high for what it does, it usually is. Just get the best you can afford and get the ball rolling. There's always time to upgrade or change tech.

If you use acrylic just make sure you water them down or buy thin body, acrylic can dry thick and bumpy which means when it comes to repainting it all white you will have to sand it all down to make it smooth enough to get your deposit back. Also do not use anything water soluable like poster paint or anything oily/waxy.
Wall paint is always going to be better with high opacity coverage and self levels better. It's water soluble enough to clean up from carpets but not so much it can't be painted over or run down the walls, wall paint exists because they designed the perfect paint to go on walls

She used to be a nice, humble creator but as soon as she started making big money, she just got up her own arse.
Plus I'm sick of all the bird merch. We get it, you've got a bird. Stop making bird merch.

Someone who has over 250k followers and 20k likes a post despite her art being boring means her "insta is dying" apparently LOL
its funny watching you guys fall out of touch with society. it functions like keysmash used to i.e. reacting in a "feral" way; barking isnt catcalling or dogwhistle or furry related lmao. >>709381
It is on trend but ipad pro/procreate offers a very tradigital media, and a comfortable drawing experience that my surface pro/csp can't quite manage. it'll only run you about $400 these days as opposed to a professional or clunky setup. they also work fine for school and movies so its the same as any laptop you have to replace in 3 years.
Thanks. Would I need to do multiple layers just like when you paint a wall or just seal it with pva?
Also, should I prime the wall with gesso? I already drew the pencil sketches.

I saw that! The public sulking about people asking for refunds as it's making her "lose money". Maybe you should have ordered the bird bags in September 2019 when the project ended, instead of booking your November trip to Japan and ordering the bags half way through 2020?
Pic related: she only just got the pins (Kickstarter extras) last month. You know, the one's everyone has been complaining weren't in their reward packages.

It's not so interesting but this girl got 1.5 followers first time she posted and it turned out she was stealing. Original creator told her to delate it, and she did, but i think they went too easy on her because (not even) week later she started posting not her art again.
Was told off and started crying that she want 300 followers again. Probably mentally unstable. She's changing her username constantly. Now she posted her real art (I think) and twitter totally forgot about all that shit she did.
Twitter artists are so pathetic.
I think the main problem is pages/information from manga are being leaked before they’re officially released, publishers have been getting stricter about that. The artist may have posted something that contradicts the contract they have with the publisher. Like how a lot of animators like making fanart for the anime they work on but they tend to delete their posts or use separate accounts for that art,
Fanart is generally not targeted in the east (I know some old school NGE hentai artist was contacted recently but the studio that messaged him apologized for it) but I wouldn’t be surprised if western artists get C&Ds since they’re far more into producing fanart for money
Thanks for the advice, anon I'll keep my eye out for future sales once I got some money saved. >>710949>>710940>>710939

Reminder to never ever draw anything that is from marginalized culture etc stick to drawing whities if you're white. This is what it gives you if americans find out.
Yay! Art segregation! That means that latinxs
shouldn’t draw white/asian/black characters because it would be a fetishization of their cultures
Just what we needed.
You can still find them. Most of them can't spesk English that's why they don't interact tho.
You gave an extreme example, but i personally think that artist who don't talk to their followers are boring

There’s also stuff like Quetzalcoatl, the kawaii waifu with gigantic boobs who is a pedo. I mean, anime should be canceled if you look for examples of misrepresentation of other cultures.

The funny thing is that the "native people" complaining about the art and "non-natives" are mostly LARPers who got like 1% on a DNA test and appointed themselves the President of Not Being White.
Exhibit A.https://twitter.com/FeyriDey/status/1345857627947847680>@eda_log Hey, as a native American I'm asking you to please stop. You drawing this style is extremely disrespectful to us. Idk if you don't understand because you aren't from north America, but it's highly inappropriate.
Meanwhile, from their profile, pic related. I'm so sick of white savior tier SJWs flexing their non-existent minority points and making actual people from the groups they LARP as look bad.
Funny how the supposed "natives" are never to be questioned about their identity, but any of other non-offended natives are either token racial shields or posers. Hm.>>711082
I get the argument that native peoples were systematically bred out and our numbers massively thinned on purpose, but this shit is so fucking embarrassing. This bitch is Canadian, isn't she? There's actual fucking ethnic cleansing going there and native american women going missing left and right but she's worried about this?
i promise the "them" was unintentional lol
I hate that grifting has become so normalized. if you're an artist and can't pay the bills, have some dignity and get a normie job before you e-beg.
you just know they're not asking people they know irl for money… wonder why
fuck it I'll answer myself
I don't think these people are in true financial need. if they were as desperate as they claim they would swallow their pride and ask their family/friends for a loan. there's much less shame when asking online considering everyone does it all the time.

"Ugly ass art" bitch you're a jealous white ass girl. I want to see this bitch go after Pokemon company for making Rayquaza inspired by the Quetzalcoatl, after Dreamworks for making Spirit not having an entire cast of native voice actors, Yume Nikki for having native-like aesthetic, Atlus for having the Thunderbird and the Wendigo in their games and so on. They just go after white or japanese/korean/chinese artists because they know no one will accuse them of being a retard and the latter can't fully comprehend their screeching most of the time so they just end up apologizing for nothing. Picrel looks fucking amazing.

Her own art is actually ugly as shit. I don't think link would look like a middle aged man as a native someone pointed it out too and she started a whole ass drama about it. But I guess in the end she's the winner because she got 1.4k likes
She just removed everything that makes link, link. If she’s so worried about representation, why isn’t she creating new characters that are relatable
because to be a "full time" twitter artist means you're privileged enough to not have a full time job. my best guess they're living comfortably with their parents/roommates and with a good enough part time job that pays their portion of bills and rent and tons of disposable income they won't set aside for such emergencies because they haven't had to do things independently, so that personal responsibility and knowledge on budgeting is absent.
their hand is held at all times, by their roommates or their parents. and they attach some sort of victimization in their bios to justify themselves.

dude wtf is wrong with you. you personally shouldn't own any delicate tech lmao>>711704
I guess you mean cartoon characters? you need to look at references for every real figure composition but if youre drawing anime girls it literally doesnt matter
That's normal. Just keep drawing, don't worry about cultivating a style because it will come to you naturally with practice. Don't force it or it will look awkward.
It's also normal to rely on reference photos, especially for anatomy. That's the best way to learn, and again, it will come naturally to you eventually if you keep practicing.
Don't give up!
I don’t post my art online (yet) and pretty much draw for myself, and every few years I end up completely changing my art style. Despite what social media wants, I think it’s good to experiment before deciding on something to stick to. I guess it’s more of a problem if you’re after followers, though.
As for references, I’ll use them for studies but not if I’m casually sketching, unless there’s something specific I want to include that I don’t have a lot of practice with. Industry artists use references all the time, so it’s not a bad thing, but of course you should be able to draw somewhat decently without one too. A reference can take your work to another level but you shouldn’t be over-reliant on them (at least, in my opinion).

didn't mean to imply it's racist to be anti-immigration, my bad. This is the post.
Also lurking more, I found out this is the same person who went viral a few years ago on animation twitter for saying Lilo from Lilo and Stitch is abusive
The best way is to get an oil painter to teach you IRL.
Just from a safety standpoint, you have to learn how not to poison yourself with solvents or set your home on fire with your paint rags, and get fully dedicated, a well-ventilated studio that's not your bedroom/kitchen/living space to paint in. Wear gloves and preferably a mask unless you like breathing in solvent fumes. If you're used to acrylics, remember not to sand your painting. Get informed with your local hazardous material waste center how to safely dispose of used solvents/paint residues/materials that have been in contact with either. That's just from the top of my head, but there's more of that without even getting started on technique.
Sorry for sperging, friends worked in an art store for a while and taught me how pretty much every art supply out there is going to kill you (but especially oil paints).
I mean, she's probably a genderspecial and a cow, but she isn't completely wrong here…
Unfortunately for her now being against illegal immigration also means you're racist, so yeah.
True, but it's useful to know a bit about pigment toxicity when picking colors and how to dispose of your paint water to minimize harm to yourself and the environment (that applies to using watercolors, gouache and acrylics too, imo). And not, like, sleep right next to drying paint LOL.>>712260
I think a bit of fear mongering is needed. You'd be surprised how common it is for both hobbyists and established professional painters just flush their turpentine down the drain, pile up their oil paint rags into a fire hazard, or work with cadmium or titanium white pigments without a mask on.
You definitely have a point about proper waste disposal not being followed enough but you don't usually need a mask or gloves for cadmium paints. Rags are a danger if you use linseed oil but so far I've never seen any instruction material that fails to mention this. https://www.danschultzfineart.com/is-cadmium-paint-toxic
"However, during the paint-making process the pigment is fused with sulfides and coated in the particular medium’s binder (oil, acrylic, gouache or watercolor). This process renders the cadmium insoluble in water, which greatly limits absorption by the human body. The cadmium does remain fat-soluble, so it’s still possible for us to absorb it if we constantly get a lot of it on our hands or ingest it. (Once again, don’t eat it!) But I’m not typically a messy painter, so I don’t bother with gloves. And cadmium paints don’t give off any dust or fumes, so no worries about inhalation either.³
With that said, you DO need to use extra caution if you’re sanding dry cadmium paint or spray-applying. If that’s you, make sure you wear a NIOSH dust respirator to eliminate the chance of inhaling cadmium particles. (Or any other harmful particles / dust.) The same advice applies if you work at all with dry cadmium or other pigments. (For example, if you like to make your own paint.)"

Michelle actually has been wanting to be a manga artist since she started her youtube career actually. But becoming a make up artist made more money more than being an anime artist at that time so she changed route. It's kinda touched me that she is still trying get back to it even though she's way past her early 30ds now.

Ohayouclothing is currently sucking up to her fans on Twitter for being patient waiting for Kickstarter bags. You know the bird bags people had to wait 1.5 years for while she went on holiday to Japan and played world of warcraft like it was her full time job.
She's so manipulative already sucking up to everyone trying to get them to support her again with her next project. 4 days ago, she tweeted about how she can't do another kickstarter for a while bc she needs to 'boost her reputation back up first'
4 days later: starts going on about a new project already. UGH. Such a greedy liar and so unprofessional, I can't with this bitch.
Seems like men's names (she says with suspicion)
It's only a few dollars but men generally hold their financial contributions against you. Selling products is much safer since the transaction is transparent.
>>713700>so i leave shit like my inks and tablet on the floor, usually to move something on my desk, get distracted, and forget i put it there. many a ruined painting i've stepped on while it's drying because of this.
I have memory issues but never break anything touch wood don't come near me sanic
and my method is to carefully pile whatever expensive shit I'm moving on my bed, propped up on pillows, or safely away in another room. And take breaks when you're moving stuff.
For a start, some variation of this question is asked every thread and over at /ic/ every day so maybe look into that
It's the same as any comission situation. You put out lots of content for free, usually fanart, then when you have a reasonable amount of followers you start advertising your commission rates. If you draw for a popular niche you will have to compete with good artists charging pennies, if you draw for a gross niche you can half ass it. Have fun drawing degenerate stuff for the sake of building a fanbase of people you hate!
NTA, but why is this always the first assumption?
I use graphics tablets instead of display pens, so my account is different. The Intuos nibs wear down a lot faster compared to the past, and Wacom drivers are still a mess. I had the options to get what I wanted, and wanted to try something different. I can't speak for the other brands, but I've been enjoying my XP-Pen and very surprised by the quality and haven't had issues with the drivers.
I heard that the color calibration wasn't the best on non-Wacom display pens. It's something I'll keep in mind if I decide to go the display pen route. But, just like how the non-Wacom pen tablets were horrible before they caught up in quality, I won't be surprised if their display pen's color calibration improves in the future.

if you don't care for morals and want some quick buck you should aim to do graphic design illustrations like pic related. Make some example pics, put them in a portfolio, and send it to a bunch of emails of tech companies. I've done both porn art and graphic design and the second one is still less soul sucking. I grew to fucking hate furries and coomers
I think way more important than style is genuine quality. The artists whose style is timeless (Moebius comes to mind) are usually also amazing artists with a great eye for all color, composition, perspective, etc.
I think if the quality and effort is there, you can draw any style from 80s shoujo manga to classic european comics, and it will hold up.
god that pic is so fucking cringe>toxic masculinity recycling plant

At least Lavendertowne bothered to give her version of Earth a decent looking vitiligo. Moonvika_svet really just slap some blue spots on random places and called it a day
Also why did she think changing Neptune's design was a good idea? Like the comments said it, now she looks like a knockoff version of Raven from TT
her sketchbook video disappointed me. she started off by admitting that she hasn’t been doing any art this year because she’s been in a funk, announced that she’d be making a sketchbook to get some practice, and then spends the entire 3 days drawing eyes and lips and cherries because that’s all she ever does.
she framed it as a way to flex her creativity and the result was just as uninspired as everything else she does
It's completely devoid of any character or flavor. It makes me feel nothing. I could look at that film of a paint drying for 6 hours and feel more than I do looking at that drawing. It's so obviously calculated to be the most palatable style it can be and I find it bland, like eating blank paper.
Also the noses look like pimples and the hands look like bizarre flippers, and the way the eyes are drawn looks really weird to me.

it's the 17th and i have still not sent my 43 patrons their December rewards. sorry, i'm depressed, and the days just seem to fly by. 5 days ago feels like yesterday. anyway, how worried should i be about how pissed they are? should i apologize and give them an excuse, or just say "here it is, thanks for supporting" and not even mention the fact that i promised to send the rewards "before the 5th of each month" and it's now the 17th?
I'm pretty sure that >>715925

no i'm real. i just have no other place to vent to anyone who would even know what i'm talking about, and lolcow is better than /ic/. 43 patrons isn't much though, it only pays for my internet and phone bill, and maybe one subway sandwich.>unwillingness to take responsibility.
can i ask that you elaborate?
no that anon but the fact that you are over due on your work and haven't said anything might be what theyre talking about. I get that Patreon isn't like a regular job, but imagine working one and being overdue and not telling your boss, or idk ordering something and it being late without any response or info from the seller.
Being in a shitty place is a good reason for not being able to do the work, but remember that these people are paying you for a product and you can't just skip out on that because youre in a bad place. If you can't do it, refund them for the month, or send them double on the next month.
either that or you temporarily close that tier.
I am the anon>should i apologize and give them an excuse, or (…) not even mention the fact that i promised to send the rewards "before the 5th of each month
Your patreons are the people who made the decision to support you, so apologizing for the delay and a little explanation sounds like the first and smallest thing you should do to show them some respect.
Maybe 43 isn't much to you, but each one of them sent you their own money and you should not take them for granted.

"Hehe, surely if I just stick a bunch of random extra shit into the new version nobody will notice that I actually got slighly worse"
The comments are saying that the artist has improved and that it’s just they’re “style”. Either they’re blind or liars. There’s a phrase for this I think:

I feel like they traced the old one
Is this a case of being in love w/being an artist but not the creation process itself? I've never seen my tools as a "need" beyond streamlining my processes. And even then, I still bounce around to different things depending on the need that needs to be fulfilled, the end result I'm looking for.
Even if you did get a tablet, who's to say you won't start complaining about having the newest device that comes out next year? Or not having enough followers? The wrong brush set? And so forth.
Are you a kid? I don't mean to belittle you, it's just that you seem to have this weird idea of the creation process. Tools aren't meant to be appealing, are meant to be tools, ofc brand new and more advanced tools can look "appealing", but the creation should be the appeal, not the tool. The bed is a terrible place for drawing, you will fuck up your back and posture.
It's not about being grateful, there is no problem in wanting a display tablet, plenty of professional artists use both, display and non-display tablets. It's simply the way you are describing you issue makes it look like you don't enjoy drawing as much as you enjoy an imaginary ideal of creating.

I struggle with it every since art college that ruined all the joy art gave me before I've decided it would be cool to pursue what I love. It's kinda on and off now, I think the basis of why is different than in your case but one of the things that helped me and maybe could help you was focusing on some specific new thing, be it technical or general, finding artists that do it well, analyze why and try to learn that myself - for example: I like how leaves look, how to stylize them with line and color to have a cool effect? research, many artist do this, the more I look the more inspired I feel to try myself.
Other thing would be watching good art instructors on youtube, both advice and watching their process tend to be very motivating. Following specific step by step tutorials when possible is good too because it gets you to warm up and leads you precisely to some specific result you're pretty much guaraneed to achieve if you follow well, and completion still gives almost the same level of satisfaction as doing your own thing, which helps with rewriting your brain to remember how it was to feel good about creating.
Often times it's good to hang out with people who are more driven as it can inspire you too but somehow, even though I've tried joining art discords and all, it never helped me but always worth a try.
Hope someone else would have some more advice, good luck to you!

Do many of you know Limeona?
I used to like her stuff, but then she started drawing her characters with these dumb goofy noses that really ruin a whole piece for me.
Fortunately it seems recently she only does that on about half of her drawings. Hopefully she'll realise it makes her art look like goofysonas and stop it soon
oh, definitely. i had a cintiq pro 13" for a couple years and it killed my neck if i drew for extended periods of time. about a year ago i upgraded to a cintiq 22", bought an ergotron arm, and the difference is night/day. i do miss screenless tablets as my posture was never an issue, but drawing with a screen tablet is just a lot more efficient (for me at least).
perhaps you could look into smaller ergotron-type arms for an ipad, or a stand that elevates it to a more comfortable position?
Maybe you're right but I'm not normally that kind of person who just moves from one excuse to the next like that, it's not about having the latest brush packs and I'm not motivated by online popularity, this really is just about having a display tablet instead of sitting at the same computer where I'm chained to for eight hours a day.>>716513
I understand what you're saying, but doesn't it just seem so appealingly effortless to have one device, no cables and sit wherever you want even outdoors? By bringing this topic here I've just made myself want it even more kek>>716729
I'll try to rekindle some love for my old setup, hopefully this is just a phase
not sure how relatable or helpful this is, but i also found myself frustrated during quarantine because i never had motivation to draw, and so i switched to other creative projects. bleaching and tie-dying shirts, making melt-and-pour soap, vintage embroidery kits, stuff like that. it was satisfying to have those creative outlets while taking a break from the kind of art i usually make. i still have ideas floating around in my head, but i'm not pressuring myself to commit them to paper. personally the "i should be more productive" thoughts are what makes my art blocks worse, so just having fun with other projects loosens me up a little, and makes drawing less of a chore when i get back to it.
but other than that, i agree with >>716828
in that i've always found other artists to be strong motivations. watching someone else's process can be really inspiring. i love watching artist documentaries because hearing them talk about their thoughts and philosophies on art can be just as if not more motivational than watching them actually working (highly recommend the illumination of jim woodring, a weird guy making weird art, but obviously you should find artists with styles or materials you're interested in)
I was about to suggest something like this. Other creative outlets are great. At worst, you learn a creative skill you don't have to take seriously and just enjoy on your own. At best, you develop a new way to adapt your artwork into something tangible or with a new take on it.
I've also found taking this route made me re-think how I approach my drawing and rekindle my love for it, since I was prone to overthinking, which would cause a hangup, which was passively fueling a burnout.
Also seconding watching other artists. Even things as basic as speedpaints and craft videos helped me out a lot.
>>716910>appealingly effortless to have one device, no cables and sit wherever you want even outdoors?
Yes, but it does have limitations like every tool. Personally I've had a few tablets through the years, I still use my Intuos 4 to this day, it never failed me in almost 10 years of use. Eventually I did get a display tablet but I fucked up by getting a cintiq companion, at the time it looked like an amazing idea to have a display tablet + a computer together. Turns out it gave me way more problems than solutions. It's super heavy , heats up like crazy and has a charging issue that had me sending it to be repaired once or twice a year, they could never fix the issue and discontinued the model. Ofc these are all very specific issues of this product, but even when it worked perfectly the experience of drawing in the display tablet was much different than I had in my head. After all this issues I was reluctant to buy the Ipad, so I've borrowed from a close friend for a week to test it out. It was kinda nice, but the program was very limited and weird to my tastes. It didn't go well with my way of doing things, so I ended up giving up on it. Sorry for my blogpost but I'm just trying to put out my perspective and experience on the subject.
All that aside, you might be the complete opposite to me and love it. If you really want one can't you save up to one? Is it too expensive for you?
I really recommend you try the product out first if you can. You don't need to borrow it, but go to the store when you can and try it out a bit, look up different reviews, especially negative ones so you know all about it. In the end, if you love it I see no reason in not considering buying one. It might require some saving up, but if it's a significant improvement to you then it's worth it.
If you have negative associations with computer use, and associate it with work, using a display tablet isn't gonna change that.
Digital art is boring anyway, everyone does it and it's easy to "advance" quickly when you paint over photos. If you want to actually enjoy making art, I suggest going traditional so it's nothing like your work process. Getting physical materials will likely be cheaper than forking out for a screen tablet which you might hate using.

I like it a lot as a concept, the art style reminds me of 2000s cartoons. The quality of animation varies a lot, you can see which shots were done by whatever beginner they could hire online. Poor timing to release this too, right after the japanese artist who draws natives diatribe, now people are going after this pilot because of pic related

The Creators Tara Billinger and Zach Bellissimo, its clear that they are totally self inserting but unlike vivziepop they have actual experience in the animation Industry

tbh I think she's cute and she's at least voiced by a Native VA (often Native characters in 3D media aren't even portrayed by Native actors lmao), but can see that people could be wary since she's given no specific cultural background and has potential to fall into being the ~mystical~ and ~spiritual~ archetype. Also….the name Buffalo Wing, though they apparently have changed it to just BW because of complaints.
It's definitely too early to see if it will be respectful like ATLA/LOK, at least regarding character issues.
However, complaints about sexualization seem to be about fanart and specifically the official blog reblogging coomer art like pic related. The reason people will be upset about this is because of rates of sexual violence against Native American women and disregard for MMIW by law enforcement. It's a soft spot.
Overall my useless 2c opinion will always be that any people of X group disturbed by representation should make their own rep. This is even indie so there's no excuse. I assume most people who care are also Indigenous artists and it'd be awesome to see Native cartoons made by Natives.

Has any anon here been on artfol before? What's the community like?
I was considering going from instagram to artfol, not because of the algorith cuz I don't give a shit about that, but because the insta UI change was such dogpiss it still pisses me of sometimes.
I wanted to know what type of people is artfol full of. Tbh I assume it's probably just instagram and maybe deviantart "refugees"
That's the thing with targetting instagram artists. They're too entitled to consider maybe humbling themselves a bit and that maybe the reason they don't get that many likes is just cuz their art isn't that good.
I'm a bit hesitant of going on artfol cuz I'm afraid the revolted insta kids will all migrate there and simply find some other contrived way of complaining 24/7 and make it annoying

>>718191>the girl straight up sounds like Tommy Pickles which is off-putting
that's cause she is voiced by the exact same voice actresses
Huh I thought the point was to explicitly NOT have an algorithm but to have the posts shown to the followers and users in chronological order, like it was the case for dA and tumblr. It's interesting because apparently it's hard to write an social media algorithm that doesn't value frequency/quantity to a larger degree. >>718261
So true. The average instagram artist will always blame "the algorithm" instead of reflecting for a second if it's maybe their content that's the reason. It's definitely true that instagram favors basic boring aesthetic art of pretty girls but that's what most basic instagram artists do anyway so?? If anything you can actually benefit from the non-chronological feed because if your followers keep liking and interacting with your art you will be shown to them more. But chronological is definitely better for people who don't have the time to post multiple times a week.

Ohhh that's my area of interest, too bad you didnt specify what aesthetic interests you specifically. I love stylized lowpoly 3D, twitter is actually a very good place to find artists doing things like that, I'll give you a few I really like and if it's up your alley it will be very easy for you to find more because they tend to exist in the same bubble, retweeting and supporting each other, making discovering more very easy:https://twitter.com/fk_3dhttps://twitter.com/YulliaProhorovahttps://twitter.com/lowpolycurls https://twitter.com/DanyulBeakerhttps://www.artstation.com/emiliestabell
I can see why some people wouldn't completely like your idea, but that really could be fixed by having posts ordered differently by different tabs, like a "things you may like" tab, a "(actual) trending" tab, a "most recent" tab, etc… although to be fair I understand that may be a bit too much to expect from a small project like this in the short term. Maybe in a longer term they would consider it.
The other people completely dismissing you kinda makes it seem that artfol might depend a bit too much on people with hateboner tho
Anon you responded to here, I was talking about not having an algorithm on your main feed where you see the stuff from people you are following. When it comes to something like an explore/featured page I definitely agree with you that some kind of algorithm and preselection would be needed.
I think the artfol developers are REALLY playing up their appeal to people who are fed up with instagram though. Getting personal suggestions or just having high-quality art featured (like the old dA frontpage) is good for good artists and art viewers. It's not so good for bad artists though because their art doesn't have a target audience but they still want it to be shown to others, so artfol's "everyone has an equal opportunity to be seen" is really appealing to them. As someone who doesn't care much about my reach and likes looking at good art I don't think it's a good idea either.
>>718295>the overwhelming majority of it is just warrior women designs or head busts as some kind of study
ugh so true. for me the biggest coomer that does this is YanSculpts, all of his models lately have been samefaced big boobie girls. i know this video's from a year ago but it was so funny to read the comments talking about how boobs don't work that way, and him only liking the comments telling everyone to shut up about it KEK
Also: a youtuber whose tutorials are actually easy to follow is Cherylynn Lima (her yt is mostly cute low poly characters, but her artstation has a bit more realistic or painterly models)
Yea I completely agree with you, if I do follow someone, it's because I DO want to see their art so the whole "prioritizing" amongs the people you follow is dumb as shit.
and I think you hit the nail in the coffin with that, because from what I saw from the developer, well to put it nicely he's not exactly a good artist himself so I can imagine that even for his personal benefit, having a system that prioritizes quality is not ideal. Of course I'm just pushing for my own benefit too. I'm not a wonderful artist but not a beginner either, so what I care is also seeing beautiful works that can inspire me to get better, if it comes with followers on the side that's only a plus. I don't think I would care to stick to a platform that doesn't offer me anything worth to see.

Sage cause this is suuper old milk, but the discussion of old DA cows reminded of overlord Bob, I'm sure most anons don't know about him but but he's this guy with a high amount of disposable income who decides to create a fetish universe and comissions dozens of artists, for over 12 years now
>Overlord Bob is an evil overlord that put his hands on a magical scroll that shows how to defeat any hero that cross his path.
>It just involves turning them into TG maids or cat girls
And to this day after over a deacde and hundreds of commissions he's still commissioning more with the exact same premise

The creator of the #transmascartists wrote a series of tweet implying how lesbians are trans phobic and it blew up. A lot of people got upset before they peddled back saying I mean cis white lesbians. Then implied the reaction to their thread (now deleted) was because they are not white

The fucking kids in this thread…
The characters are cringe inducing, they look like 2003 deviantart OCs.
this is brought up once every thread lmao
it's kinda interesting to see anons' reactions on it tho, they're always different

I also like to use posemaniacs, since they have 3D Models that can be shown from basically every angle. The original site doesn't work anymore because it used flash, but I was able to find this
