I started as a regular artist and had a dream to work in a videogame industry. Worked few years but it quickly became super boring. If it's not an interesting indie game (that allows you to draw cool stuff) - it's pretty much not worth your time.

Now i do nothing but porn and i love it. I love to express human sexuality and embrace it. I use skills i got when i was working with tight deadlines and rules. I have many ideas for upcoming lewd stuff.

But... i was always wondering - how other porn artists live and how they feel about it.
I guess right now we have many porn artists that are close to 25-30 years old because most of us started back in early 10s and they fully established now.

Tell your story and discuss this questionable artist-path here. How did you became porn artist. How do you see yourself in a 10 years.

As you see by the OP-pic im a bara artist. I kind of happy about that because its much more safe to be a bara artist than a regular hetero-artist.
We even have artists like Nesskai (he draws hairy dudes and has a NSF blog and twitter) that manage to do both - porn and work for Blizzard projects like Overwatch.
So i can say that being a porn artist wont hurt your career. And it could never do that honestly.
I remember back in 2008 one client that worked with me opened my server folders out of curiosity and found my nsfw stuff - it didnt affect anything and we continued working even if i was working on a cartoony game.

Here's some critique for you, you'll never find a home board because your typing is insufferable.

Or "You're pretty good at drawing for a girl, what's your snap?"
Vomit. As if us drawing a boob makes us immediately dtf indiscriminately.
Is it true that it's easy for people to tell that an artist used to draw porn? If so, what are the telltale signs so i can avoid them?
>"Do you need some big dick refs? Cause Ive got one right here ;))"
>"So do you reference yourself in ur work? I'd love to see ur pussy if it looks like that!"
>"Looks like we share the same fetishes, wanna meet up some time?"

As if I would pull a sakimichan and model for myself? No thanks. Also I draw shit I'm not into doing irl for commissions sometimes, how do they not get this??
Oh dear lord, I hate when people think that I only draw what I'm into.

And then there's the people who get offended that you don't want to fuck a total stranger just because you draw things of a sexual nature for money. The insults start rolling in immediately. Sometimes they even will attempt to troll across multiple platforms. It's pretty pathetic.

There's nothing really unique to erotica and pinups but if you did it exclusively for a long time you're going to be weaker at rendering anything that isn't a figure and have certain go-to tricks and techniques that hint at porn.

Loomis. I always wanted to actually learn drawing but getting a first step was hard. Fun with a pencil may not had been the biggest single improvement but god damn was it a nice start.

Are there any very driven communities where people are generally very good but also open to outsiders in one way or another? I don't like /ic/ for shitposting and too negative attitudes, don't get me wrong, it was funny for me in the past but now I need to focus more on my improvement, so I can't let myself being hold down by useless shit. I understand that finding a good community isn't an easy task, but there has to be something out there.

I've come to the final step where I'm so tired of people making fun of my art having mistakes I just wanna start practicing seriously realism just to prove them wrong.

I feel nothing but anger toward myself right now.
I think I'm gonna make it.
Post your work.
Anger is not the right mood.
let it flow through you and do not forget whence it came. may peace find you and darkness bind you.
Let that spite guide you to great art. You can do this, show them!
More than that, it can suggest the wrong motivations or outlook altogether

Why don't anime artists draw noses? Is it inherent to the style? Are there anime artists who do draw them?
46 replies and 15 images omitted. Click here to view.
It's part of idealization. Big noses are unattractive.
I've seen anime with realistic human noses (not just little triangles or stylized pointed noses) but I can't recall where I saw them. Someone post them.
Escaflowne has realistic noses
I think it's more about keepping the level of simplification of facial features on the same level, having more realistically rendered eyes, mouth, or nose would throw the face off. Realistically drawn features are often used as features of body-horror, so having a nose that isn't nostrils and an indicated shadow would be very unappealing. Even when a nose is drawn it's very rarely more than a simple shape.
god tumblr and calarts noses are fucking gross. like intentionally unappealing. the hell is wrong with these people?

Does it look 3D? I think it doesn't. Help me into 3D I need to do it and improve, am I taking too long with fun with a pencil, I had fun this time so that's neat.
What else should I improve? Other than all.

>find artist that draws great porn
>see one twink boy but hes getting blown by a thicc ass milf so its okay
>the next 10 images on his account are all male shortstacks and twinks sucking each others dicks, fucking each other in ass, or just solo pics of them jerking off
Why do so many good porn artists always draw this gay ass shit? Its especially horrible when they draw beautiful women but thats only like 10% of their posts and the rest is all faggot shit. I'm tired of scrolling down my timeline of glorious lewds, dick in hand, only to see fairy twink boys with huge balls sucking each other off smack dab in the middle of it all and from my some of my favorite artists no less.

The world doesnt revolve around you. Fags exist. No one owes you art
> Thicc wide hip boi
This goes against the laws of nature.
The images are imaginary. Do as you please with those. However, if you commit to homosexual acts, you're a homosexual. It is quite simple my dear. Keep up. We're all going to make it.
So a MMF three-way with the guy fucking the chick and simultaneously jerking off/kissing the other dude would be 100% gay? Not both, hence the name bisexual?
Yes. You're aren't 25%, 50%, or maybe just 10%. Just gay. Why would it be otherwise? Because you're inside of some pussy? Let me put it to you this way. Scenarios reversed. You're getting fucked by the dude while fingering and kissing a woman. Under what circumstances would that be straight? In both instances a male is involved with you sexually. Not to please the woman. Instead to satisfy your own homosexual urges.

Thoughts on drawabox? Is drawabox really the loomis of fundamentals or is it just a meme for technicalfags?

doing drawabox is more like trying to get good at basketball by dribbling a ball standing still. you'd actually learn better ball control by playing games.

it's like how universities teach people how to use new software. they give students a project, like design a house or 3d model a teapot etc etc. Because if you just try to learn the software by itself, trying to memorise tools and shortcuts and functions, you end up forgetting and not really seeing how all the tools piece together. But when you're trying to complete a project you end up learning which tools you need for that particular job and applying it and you commit it to memory. Artists don't actually become proficient by grinding fundamentals for hours on end like I said in this post >>3945034. people studying art at a tertiary level don't grind fundies for warmup/practice. they draw from life, do gesture studies, value and color studies. Honestly drawabox course program is kind of patronizing giving you x amount of boxes/animals/wheels.

Singer Sargent never did fundies grinding. He drew from observation over and over and as a result has better grasp of fundementals than Irishad Karim who struggled years to learn by focusing on /beg/ tutorial tier practice.
That's an awful example, considering professional basketball players often do dribbling exercises... standing still. I'm not saying you don't have a point, but it's sort of a tell of an inexperienced mindset to be so either-or when it comes to practice. There are a million different things to practice and a million different ways to practice them. Sure, if Steph Curry only did his little dribbling practices he'd be awful, but that's just one tool in his toolbox. Anyone who buys Drawabox thinking it's an artists skeleton key doesn't understand the fundamental idea of practice to begin with, though. Those who do will take what works and move on.
>it's like how universities teach old people how to use software they've never heard of before
Fix'd for you
>Honestly drawabox course program is kind of patronizing giving you x amount of boxes/animals/wheels.

You don't have to do as he says. He's not going to come down to your house and shove a box in your moms vagina. Again, wax on wax off.
all elite basketball players do dribbling and throwing drills for hours on end
rebecca rand did a pretty informative review of her experiences with drawabox https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFn9w3uDkz4

I want to draw a lot of different stuff from realistic fantasy/horror stuff to more exaggerated and stupid shit. I want to post my stuff on social media, but from what I've seen, it seems like all the successful people on social media stick to just one style to some extent. Am I wrong? If it is the case, would it be better to make separate accounts, or just post everything I make on one account? I'm new to the social media thing and could use advice.

Pic somewhat unrelated and not my art
Try getting good at drawing before indulging fantasies of getting popular on social media.
When did I say I sucked?
Don't restrict yourself. Most of those popular artists had to do a lot of experimentation before they found what really works for them and that became their style. Unless the change is huge like from realistic fantasy to cutesy moe characters then I don't think it will hurt you.
Look at Dave Rapoza. He's kind of an outlier but the style of his artwork changes like he's a chameleon depending on what client he's working for.
You're not wrong. There's no arguing that being consistent and specializing in a certain style/subject matter will cause more people to follow you and more people to hire you.

Random people (i.e. not clients) want to follow accounts that will fill their feed with specific shit. If they like landscapes and you paint landscapes 95% of the time, they'll probably follow you. But if you post landscapes, cute anime girls, realistic animal portraits, architecture, gory shit, cute shit, etc, they most likely won't because they won't be able to tell what they'll get out of following you (some will, bit we're talking about the majority here).

Same with clients, if they find you and can tell that you're "the landscape guy" they'll be likely to hire you to do their environment work. But if your content is all over the place they may assume you're still learning, that you haven't figured your shit out, and probably will find someone who can do a great job at exactly what they need.

Think about it this way, imagine you subscribing to a magazine about painting. You open it, and see an article about painting, then one about nail polish, one about veganism, one about astrology, one about fishing, then another one about painting, followed by 5 more about random shit. You'd probably regret subscribing to it, because you don't really care about any of the other shit.

Same on Instagram. If you're just using it for fun, post whatever, it doesn't matter. But if you're trying to get followers or work from it absolutely do specialize and stay consistent.
