/aco/ brap artist anon here.
I still haven't figured out a anonymous way to receive commission payments and i would like some ideas. The only way to hide my personal info on PayPal is to make a a account with a fake ID, and i don't want the feds raiding my house because i drew demon girls farting.
Some anons suggested Crypto. How does it work? Should i use coinbase? Aren't crypto payments unstable?
Additionally, are there any sites where i could receive a payment and then transfer to PayPal?

Monero is a secure, private, untraceable, and fungible digital currency. Sounds like a perfect match for your needs.
Come to the general on /biz/ and anons will be happy to answer all your questions.

Download the wallet, if you are using Windows, add exception to antivirus, because it has crypto miner (it's disabled by default) and triggers antiviruses. Set it up in simple mode, the other two download blockchain and require 100+ GB of disk space.
Alternatively Cakewallet on iOS and Monerujo on Android.

Create a wallet.
Save your mnemonic seed phrase (the 25 words, in order), write it down on paper.
It's very important. It's the only thing you need to recover your funds, in case your computer breaks, gets stolen, you reinstall system and forget to back up your wallet, or forget the password to your wallet.
You can print it and store in your favourite book, on the bottom of your underwear drawer, or anywhere else where you won't accidentally throw it out. Check on it once in a year or so, to make sure it's safe and the text doesn't fade.
Never share it with anyone.

Read the guide.
Here's the section on receiving Monero. You need to share your address with whoever is supposed to pay you. You can create unlimited number of these, so you know which payment is for what (in case you have multiple commissions for the same amount and need to know who paid you).
Monero is private so you won't know where (who) the money came from, unless the person gives you proof.

>Seems very immature
is concern for privacy not the opposite of immaturity? Are you not aware of the world we live in? The amount of psychos is immense. You never know which sort of moron you are offending with a specific stroke of your brush. You see the trend of musicians wearing masks and that's not just to copy Deadmau5 and the likes. it's because society doesn't forget and good look getting that management job in the automobiles industry as a coom artist.In my opinion the business name is already too much, since it must be registered and hence you might as well name your whole name in there + dick pic.
We need a reform. The personal data should be for law enforcement only, not some vigilante spergs.

If you need to do it on a very short notice, you can just use aforementioned Kraken and receive your payments directly there.

>Aren't crypto payments unstable?
The price can fluctuate, you should account for that when agreeing on amount.
If you want to be safer/need the money, you can crypto right after you receive it.
Or if you expect the price to go up, and are fine with taking on some risk, you can hold crypto and sell it at a later date when you need the money.
You can also combine both. Sell part for safety/to cover your bills (25%, 50%, 69%, etc.), keep the rest for the speculation/as an investment.

Most of the crypto is divisible into small units.
$1 can be divided into 100¢ (smallest unit is $0.01).
1 XMR (Monero) can be divided in up to 12 digits after decimal separator (smallest unit is 0.000 000 000 001 XMR).
So you can request 0.25 XMR for your commission, which at current prices, which will be about $100. Week ago that would have been $130, which might seem like a drop, but a month ago it was under $90, and even less before that.
Some real life example. In the middle of March I was paid 1 XMR for a commission, it was about $220. Today it's almost $400.

I want to draw anime. Do I really need to start with Loomis and the other beginner books? Not interested in those styles and find it hard to stick with doing those drawings/exercises because of it.

On top of that, all that I present in Japanese are books on anatomical construction and pose of figures, even the Japanese have the concept of loomis as their basic unit, these ngmi coomers will never understand it.

I have problems with drawing masculine faces, but for now I am thinking more about practicing basic 3d forms and get to work with more appealing shapes, perspective and then learn better proper construction and gesture before anatomy. Vilppu corse will probably fill some of those and I've seen people recommend him over Loomis.
That's Eiji Asuka lol.

Read this book.
pick up a pencil and paper and go in the woods to study/draw for 8h every day.
I thought that was cocaine.
I wish I had mental problems that drive me into being more productive, rather than mental problems that make me an antisocial shut-in with no marketable skills or any value to society.

I sure despise god in an unmeasurable manner.
You did this to yourself
People say I am never gonna make it but I don't really care, it's fun to draw.
yes i am :D
just gotta fix my body clock since i always feel sleepy after a few hours of drawing

Farzetta is Kino af but boomers who are into drawing memehim so badly trying to imitate his exact art-style poses and even composition.
is like the boomeratrist god

why, i dont understand, Dave rapozza and Kim jung or Murata have more and better artsyles/comics(frazzeta is still talented dont take me wrong)
11 replies omitted. Click here to view.
conceptart forum most helpful users literally used frazetta's techniques in painting as starting off point to translate to digital art workflow. I don't like his subject matter, but damn if his techniques didn't help me.
>Dave rapozza and Kim jung or Murata have more and better artsyles/comics

that's a matter of opinion, but I, uh, strongly disagree. Frazetta was a better draughtsman than any of those three (yes, even /ic/-god Kim Jung Gi). If you were to ask any of them, they'd agree, btw.
maybe because you like the micro asian cocks that you have all the linear garbage without oils, or watercolors on a pedestal.
But no, Frazzeta is not bad.
>Kim jung
>better artsyles
>Dave rapozza and Kim jung or Murata have more and better artsyles/comics
They are pretty much all are in the same league of highly skilled but sensational geek/pop/otaku culture artists, KJG a less so since his style and sensibilities are a bit more esoteric, but only slightly so
Frazetta is so prominent among boomers since he contributed a lot to classic fantasy and D&D type stuff that they are still nostalgic for, the others are newer and lesser known to them, but are pretty much going to be the equivalent(to the extent that is possible in this age) for millennials and some gen-zs
They are very good at what they do but as you explore you will find more and better artists to learn from in terms of variety, experimentation, and expression if you are looking for that
On a side note I wonder if something similar to this is what Obata saw in Murata while he was working as an assistant on Death Note, that he draws to impress instead to leaving an impression upon and express to the viewer
in a way One Punch Man was the perfect story for him to flex his skill and deliver impressive visions, working with slightly nuanced but still archetypal characters, all serving a narrative that delivers critique on them coming from ONE. Makes me genuinely happy to see stuff like this coming together in just the right way

why aren't using photoshop to make frame by frame animation
I should try any of these days. I played a little with 2D puppets, is a lot easier and would probably be cool in a comic, but the function kinda dies there, "traditional" animation still is far superior when mastered.

are collectors just the art world's version of the NGMI cuckold?

>"I'll never be able to make art like these talented big bucks, I'll just collect the work of all the people who are so much better than I could ever dream to be and watch them from afar"

I bet every collector at one point in their youth dreamed of glory as an artist, but they let the crabs push them down into being a collector

If I had money I would only spend with art and food, sex and niché knowledge. Everything else is quite futile in my opinion and I mean everything..
there's a difference between buying art books so that you can skin them and try to integrate the information into your own skillset compared to just looking at it even though you don't actually create anything yourself. I can't imagine doing that. Looking at other people art to me is like playing pokemon and hunting down what I want to steal from them
Curiously, all artists have collections of other artists, there is a very big flaw in their logic, or are you trying to excuse yourself due to your lack of talent? The collection is something secondary when income is obtained.
Or they could just be fans...
That’s what I’m saying. If you were rich you could just purchase the paintings you liked and travel to fancy museums all the time

What are you talking about? I don't think even Tux's artist is common knowledge among FOSS enthusiasts. Tyson Tan is only know because people keep begging for Kiki porn.

Nah, that'd be boring.
What's your opinion on the new mascot Furry-Tan re-desiged for KDE's text editor.
I think the first design he made of this bird looked better. The art of the final design itself is really good but it just looks too overdesigned for something being used for a logo.
That first reply was someone else. But I also have no intention of dealing with the technological stupidity and social overhead of Krita and would much rather make something that is simple, unique and profoundly useful. Kind of like Paint Tool Sai but with a beautiful paint engine instead of a sterile digital one. Plus I'm not going to work on something for months or years unless I can make money from it.

Why do I have to practice drawing freehand circles and ellipses when I can just do this?
18 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Humans are literally the only beings in the universe who can produce and comprehend the beauty of perfect forms
Agreed. What matters is the result achieved, not how you did it. No one except other artists give a shit how you did it, and being an "artist's artist" gets you nowhere. Freehand circles are only important for traditional, and even then, there are still tools to help with that(using a plate, cup, or bowl as a stencil, or using a compass.)

Work smarter, not harder. Maximize efficiency.

How come nobody has stepped up to fill this void? I'm sure lots of twitter artists (formerly tumblr's) really hate the site.
there's better alternatives to tumblr and twitter, but the thing is artists choose wherever is the most popular, not necessarily the most efficient.

After all, majority of people that consume art are normies who are not artists themselves. And both twitter and tumblr are filled non-artists.
