So with tumblr and artstation gone to shit . Where do you guys post your art now? i see alot of people moving to twitter. which is nice since you can post nsfw, but not being able to save photos as easy is a real pain. it was nice with tumblr since you can get refs and art all in the same place.

>Where do you guys post your art now?
>also where you guys (besides /hr/) get refs?
>>
What are some places to go off the internet and share your weeb art?
>>
>>3805108
Twitter. Works fine until they go full tumblr, which hasn't happened yet.
>>
>>3805108
>not being able to save photos as easy is a real pain.
I just use firefox. Right click, view image in new tab, right click again, save. You can probably even skip the view image in new tab step, but I like to make sure I'm getting the full resolution image... probably wasting time but I have autism

Works fine on mac, idk if it's the same on windows

Are you PC illiterate? There is thousand plugins.

what exactly happened to tumblr! what’s the story?
>>
>>3805119
yea just tried that on chrome,doesnt work. but i might reinstall firefox just for that feature
>>
>>3805127
>There is thousand plugins.
doesnt post one
>>
>>3805113
doesnt twitter compress images to hell?
>>
I never followed Artstation? what changed so it went to shit?
>>
Tumblr looks pretty alive to me. I'm not a degenerate, so it's like nothing happened.
>>
people keep saying mastodon is good but it seems like a pain to find anything on it
>>3805108
>artstation gone to shit
how so?
>>
>>3805108
Gee there's this new thing called Instagram that I've been hearing all sorts of good things about. It's really new though so I don't think many people use it.

>Tumblr will ban adult content from the platform starting Dec. 17, the company announced. This includes photos, illustrations, videos and GIFs of sexual acts, as well as full-frontal genitalia and female-presenting nipples. This change will also get rid of Tumblr’s Safe Mode, the search filter designed to purge NSFW content from a query.

There are exceptions: female-presenting nipples in breastfeeding, birth or after-birth moments, as well as health-related situations (i.e. a mastectomy) is allowed; so is nudity in non-sexual situations, such as a political act or in art or sculpture. Explicit written content, such as erotica, is still permitted as well.

We have been getting many questions from users asking what happened to the ArtStation Android App, as it seems to have disappeared from the Google Play Store. In the interest of transparency and keeping our users informed, we wanted to let you know what is happening.

On December 10, 2018, unfortunately Google suspended the ArtStation App from the Google Play store for the issue of Violation of Sexually Explicit Content policy. Google provided us with the following image as evidence of our violation.

geez maybe i dont fucking want cuckerburg getting anymore of my infomation...hmmm

so?
>>

why would you use an phone to upload pics?

How did Tumblr get away with this? Who funds them?
>>
>>3805202
>I don't agree with ArtStation marking my work as having mature content
We don't make the rules. Our app has been suspended from the Google Play and Apple App Store too many times now and we have to comply. If it even looks curvaceous, we pretty much have to mark it as mature. Sorry.

Keep in mind that mature content is a sensitive area. What is viewed as "artistic" to one person can be disturbing to another. On the website, you can turn off mature content filtering and we ask that you do so as well if you have a problem with our classification of mature content. ArtStation reserves the right to moderate the content.
actually i take back what i said about artstation. i had thought they purged their nsfw too, my bad

currently waiting on this Pillowfort thing to go somewhere.

NewGrounds tried to cash in on the exodus with hilarious result.

Gab as well with even more hilarious results.

So far Twitter, Pixiv, FA, and (If you don't mind the weird quality control garbage) Hentai-Foundry are the only things worth putting stuff up on.
>>
>>3805229
What about newgrounds and gab was hilarious?
>>
>>3805284

They tried to make themselves look like the next haven for nsfw artists. Didn't work out at all.

Start cross posting to mastodon and pixelfed. Some sort of decentralised platform will be the end game once Twitter and instagram start cracking down as well.

Wait, what!?

What if I don't post degenerate NSFW art? Isn't Tumblr still good enough?
>>
>>3805391
yea it is, but people still getting flagged
>>
>>3805113
Twitter is fucking garbage and the only reason peooke flock to it is because all.their stupid porn artists went there after the tumblr purge.
>>
twitter until I get banned
then I'll move to pawoo or baraag or something
pixiv as my main gallery
might self-host a gallery at some point using activitypub for pushing notifications
>>
>>3805670
The worst part about Twitter other than this >>3805159 is that it can feel like you have to scroll through 10 meme pics to find one piece of art for artists that use Twitter as their main social media platform instead of just a secondary place to dump their art.

With Tumblr, even when artists reblog other shit a lot they have a seperate tag to easily see just their art. Twitter is even worse with Nip artists who like to use their art Twitter as their main "life blog". It hurts when a twitter nip artist doesn't even have a secondary pixiv account.
>>
>>3805325
This. I'm currently running Twitter, Mastodon, and PF, but Mastodon seems to be the only one that is noticeably growing.
>>
>>3805687
no one browsing twitter on their limited mobile data wants to see ur fucking garbage ass anime load like a dial up shut the fuck up about compression like you know anything its not a fucking gallery of course its compressed its web data you fucking dumbass.

This continues to be very vague.
I've been using NG and so far enjoying it. The tag system seems to be about as functional as tumblr's was, they have built in integration for commissions and online stores, and they just added multi image posts. And I've seen plenty porn. I haven't run into any problems or seen any complaints other than them having issues with the account creation portal on the first day but they fixed that almost immediately and have been quick to update the few other things I saw people asking about like the multi image posting thing.
Can we at least get some specific things that have been problems?
>>

i furiously spent 12 hours jelqing to increase my energy for drawing. im gonna stab someone with safety scissors if i dont calm down
>>
>>3805108
I made a couple Twitter accounts
>>
>>3806023
Oh and I wanna say, bless Twidere. Fantastic app, it's open source. You can register multiple accounts on it and switch between them to post. No need to log in and out like on desktop, it's super practical.

If you really want to go the extra mile get on Instagram too but honestly only a very specific type of art works on Instagram.
>>
>>3806025
You can also quickly switch accounts in the desktop if you use the Twitcher extension on Chrome.
>>
>>3806076
Oh thanks. I'll check that out

Yeah, bruh... Total fiasco... Upvoted.

what would be some good subreddits to post art to and promote oneself? i'm asking for sexy pinup sfw type of cutegirl anime art.

>>3805693

what's PF?

>>3805833

same here. i gave it a shot and quickly concluded it's not worth the trouble to figure out. maybe eventually when i have more patience i'll get back into it.
>>
>>3805136
Not him, but Twitter View Original Images.
>>
>>3805856
newgrounds seems cool but i feel like i have the wrong style to post there. they're mostly into cartoony stuff like mode & shadman right? do weebshit & realism get any traction over there?
>>
So how well/ bad IS tumblr doing since the changes?! Heard nothing about its user numbers since the purge happened!
>>
>>3805108
www.newgrounds.com

Doesn't compress your damn art, can't beat that.
>>
>>3806623
Nah there's prety much every style under the sun
it's just that... lets be honest, cartoony is easier for beg to pump out finished works with.
>>
>>3806623
>>3806668
>cartoony is easier for beg to pump out finished works with.
Pretty much this. But yeah I've seen realistic shit, anime, western comic style, pretty much the whole range of art styles over there. And they don't have any rules about style either, the only rule they have about content is that it has to be original, not photography, and not photobashed. I think they also stress illustration over things like sculptures but I'm pretty sure one of the caveats I read said you can take photos of paintings and I think other kinds of physical art you've made.
>>
>>3806655
There's a few adult blogs which were deleted, but there's still some risque content up... Also, some posts say that they require you to log in to see the content.
>>
>>3806826
Also blogs marked as NSFW can be only accessed through anal masturbation and gazillions of normal posts were marked by algorithm as containing adult content.
Tumblr is MySpace now.
>>
>>3806373
op. thanks

>PF = Pillowfort
May be a viable Tumblr alternative once its publicly released. Currently dead due to being in beta and requiring a $5 donation to make an account.
>>
>>3805108
>being able to save photos as easy is a real pain
right click the picture directly on your timeline. dont open the tweet.
>>
I don't care for "exposure," only for the approval of people I care about, so I just chuck my dumb doodles into discord servers of similarly banned fiends
>>
>>3805113
Twitter has a fucking garbage format though.
Tumblr is an eternal dumpsterfire, but the tagging and reblogging setup is a good idea.
>>
pixiv - if your a good anime artist

deviantart - if ur not top teir
>>
>>3807185
Deviantart doesn't allow normal porn, only hyperinflation anal vore.
>>
>>3805108
I remember Sheezyart. Too bad it's dead (also I don't think it allowed porn either).

That does beg the question, though: Are there even any smaller art sites left? Or did they all just die off because Deviantart exists as a fucking monolith?
>>
>>3805198
Artstation was still holding it's ground though, I didn't think it bent over backwards to Google play like Tumblr?
>>
>>3807395
This, but also does anyone else feel that artstation is too daunting for their art level? I'm willing to draw realism and stuff other than weebshit but i feel like at my level i'm just going to be crushed by the macrocock of some 17 year old chinese dude.
>>
amino kind of works actually, if you don't mind stealing money from kids (not porn tho)
>>
If you only draw porn, fuck you.
>>
>>3807475
>stealing money from kids
Wait now I'm intrigued
>>
>>3807782
Amino is 90% 16 and younger. Most channels are thriving with tons of weird kids who want to spend their mom's credit card on shitty fanart of their characters or whatever, so with even a shrivel of talent it should be easy to make a fairly quick buck on there.
>>
>>3807786
tons of furries too. if you can draw furry shit it's almost to easy
>>
>>3807556
Gonna draw extra cocks just for you, anon-kun.
>>
>>3807786
>>3807788
Nice. Will this leave a stain in my reputation, though? Do people care? If not, this is going to be too easy, thank god.
>>
>>3805159
apparently, if you put at least 1 transparent pixel in the image it doesn't get compressed.
>>
>>3807168
twitter doesn't have videos and images separate.
>>
anybody getting an error creating an account on NG?
>>
>>3805108
Why has Artstation gone to shit, exactly? Because they don't allow posting your degenerate Jap tentacle rape?
>>
>>3808895
Yes, retard.
>>
How do you find good artist accounts? I always have a hard time finding someone new to follow
>>
>>3805207
I feel like it’s my fault because I posted about the tumblr cp problem in a couple pizzagate threads on other pol and set the autists’ wheels spinning about it

You can choose to have different pfps and usernames for each group you join up.
Unless you go around linking everything to your main social media, whatever have you, it should be fairly easy to not have it really affect anything.
