He is not good.
Yes, he makes money of his art.
Yes, he has a rabid fanbase.
Yes, he is a professional, even if he is also childlish
But his art, is not good. He is to drawing what modern art is to all art. His drawings are shit, but they are highly valued.

If you ask, "how do I get as much money with my shitty art?" it's easier to answer:
Draw porn of every, and I mean, EVERY meme of the week.
You'll hop in every trending tag of the week.
His art may be shitty, but the >shad is also a very dedicated artist. He may never "improve" his art, but it doesn't matter, relevance, and consistency, is what he sells.
>>
>>3758746
not my favorite shad pic but whatever

Shad been drawing for almost 8 year now. Back in 2011 when he first started out his art was very far off from his current. He's been drawing a full piece almost daily for that long and he on records says how he always tries doing new poses and things that challenge him.
TLDR practice and taking on challanges.

I was actually watching him draw that because I like his streams, and was debating whether I should say something about the eye running off her face, but I decided not to.

You'd be surprised to know that shadman's version is a bit better than her face in the movie.

Shaddai Prejean's art HAS gotten better. He's improved his colors and lines. But his art still isn't "good." He's been at this for years and years now and has no real firm grasp of anatomy, proportion, or perspective. How does someone toil away at illustration for nearly ten years and not learn the fundamentals? Easy, he was kicked out of college very early on and hasn't enrolled in an art class since. He's entirely 'self-taught' which isn't impressive seeing how little progress he's made.
He's got thousands of fans begging for each new drawing, so no one is ever going to be able to tell him to go take a class and figure out the basics, but it's a shame. For as much work as he churns out both he and his loyal fans deserve improvement.
>>
>>3760454
Hahahahah what the fuck
>>
>>3760487
>what the fuck
Almost all of his early work was guro/edgelord shit. Then he hopped on the dickgirls meme and skyrocketed to fame and fortune. Now he churns out below average pinups and comics and his fans go nuts for them.
>>
>>3760505
So, he made it
>>
>>3760454
how does he not know anatomy or perspective?

by looking at his drawing you can tell he does, he's probably simply not talented enough to improve at a faster rate and will reach his peak eventually
>>
>>3760301
That means his construction was off. Flipping keeps your brain from correcting construction mistakes subconsciously
>>
>>3759996
Am I NGMI if I can't notice any flaws? I don't see her eye running off her face nor do I notice any difference when flipping it.
>>
>>3758746
still better and more successful than 99 percent of ic

What exactly is wrong with his drawing?
>>
>>3759739
Lmao. Finally a half decent joke on /ic/

Oi vey
>>
>>3760553
It's a state of mind, I always see eyes being off at first glance these days because that's a problem I'm currently struggling with with big, stylized eyes.
Back when it was noses, I'd just see the nose and disregard the rest of the face.
But shadman doesn’t really think about eyes in the first place, he often draws a front view almond shaped eye on a complete profile of the face, it's some Picasso shit he's got going on.

To answer your question, it doesn’t really matter, just focus on your work, thinking you're getting better because you can nitpick someone else's work is how you get stuck in /beg/ in the first place.

>>
>>3761941
Everyone can admire his work ethic. The question that everyone should be asking is why isn't he good yet? And the answer is that he's not working on the basics, the fundamentals. Construction, anatomy, lighting; until he masters the basics he can't actually get good all he can do is practice bad habits, prolifically.
>>
>>3761981
At least his line quality looks good, I guess.
>>
>>3761981
No, you retard, the answer is that he's popular and his work is evidently appealing to a lot of people so he has 0 (zero) reason to grind boxes like an autist.

Laughed real hard after I looked at it

What’s going on that that shadow?
>>
Are the errors genuine oversights because he's too focused on other parts of anatomy or does he cynically expect his fans to only concentrate on ass and titties?
>>
>>3762551
He posts a new image or comic page every 1.5-2 days and reads and responds to chat while drawing, you retard.
You can’t make a shadman-tier drawing with all the time and focus in the world, what the fuck are you doing projecting your antisocial jewish moneylust onto an actually productive artist?
>>
>>3762576
I was asking a question, you triggered little nigger, since I'm not aware of his methods or schedule; no claim was made.
The fact he has people watching and nobody has corrected his errors has confirmed my suspicion though, hasn't it, you little mongoloid.
Don't know where you pulled "antisocial jewish moneylust" from. Since porn is pushed by Jews your accusation is retarded in that respect as well.

He has improved a little. But not nearly the amount of improvement you'd expect to get out of 8+ years of practice.

Nah. You could go through art school twice in that time, and maybe actually learn something. But I'm not hating, he's got thousands and thousands of loyal fans waiting for each new sketch. Good for him.

Not him but here's a general critique of shads stuff

>bad anatomy in general, very basic understanding, and no effort to learn after years and years
>bad perspective, just look at the shoes on gwen. He has an "idea" of what it's supposed to look like because he's been trying and doing the same flaws so long but he's not actually putting thought into the proper shapes of objects or form
>very little if no understanding of color theory or light either. Could be stylized, but no bounce light, often no ambient light, just kinda typical airbrushy look, makes most his stuff flat. Also palettes in general are kinda uninspired.
>very ugly(subjective) sameface that changes very little. He sticks to the same expressions and facial features
>uses incredibly cheap art tricks as stylization like the whole RGB shift shit (not remembering the name), and blur, which is generally lazy

It doesn't really matter though. Success is defined by your own perspective, and ultimately he's "successful" by most standards, even if his arts subpar. Plus there's worse artist making alot of money out there as well. You don't have to like, talk about, or view shads stuff, you can simply ignore it. The only thing that I detest about him is his proclivity to make pornography portraying actual child actors likeness. It's just gross.
>>
>>3768096
>shadman
>sameface
lol no
you could just look at the images posted itt to see that’s not true
>>
>>3768105

He's done I better job from those little comics I've seen and some other stuff that seems to be more on model lately (I pretty much experience his stuff through osmosis of it getting troll posted in places), but it's very sameface for the most part.

Even if that wasn't the case it doesn't change the other issues with his art. Really he just seems lazy and profiting off the least amount of work it feels. Maybe he does and is just incredibly awful at learning. I remember a sleepycast or something he talked about being kicked out of art school and had the police almost called on him for his work, if I was in his shoes I'de probably be less willing to take critique. He has a niche though and I doubt it's something other artist could take regardless of whatever quality they have.
>>
>>3768125
That’s not sameface, they have completely different skull structure.
And stop talking out you ass, you projecting retard, he was kicked out because shadbase was the site he made for school and then proceeded to to upload loli porn to it. What the fuck does that have to do with him taking critique?
>>
>>3768125
IS THIS SHAD? this is what he should be aiming for. but his stuff looks broken.
>>
>>3768147

Don't know why you're so offended. I'm not stressing it's anime tier same face, nor that every pic is, just generally he has the same notes and rhythms when drawing lips and/eyes. I guess my issue is the faces are just not very attractive, but I don't know what gets your rocks off. Also I'm just trying to say he has bad experiences with "professional" art and learning so it wouldn't be crazy if he gives less of a fuck about critique or improvement. I literally have no clue why he doesn't improve, and usually after some point with artist it's really just laziness.

>>3768166

Yes that's shad. I don't really get what you mean by that's what he should aim for though (unless you just like musclegirls or something). Everything about it is flawed. Even stuff like sombras right tit is just flying out for no reason (well I know the reason, he doesn't know perspective.)

The torso is okay, hands don't look bad, arm is okay, but the connection of the back of the skull to the neck, the butt and feet are bad. I'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt and say the face was just a stylistic choice.

This man needs to read some books. I recommend Steve Huston's book on figure drawing.

He plateaued years ago. He went from 'shit' to 'marginally mediocre' and has stayed there. He wont improve without serious study and why would he bother since he's already 'made it.' His fans just want edge and memes and are completely uncritical, there's absolutely no incentive for him to get serious about getting good.
