Where’s the “Too cowardly to post online” square
>>
>>5442403
this is also my bingo card
also I feel like half of the squares say the same thing but reworded slightly, like looking down on drawing popular subjects and stuff about being jealous of others
>>
>>5442399
Everyone should look down on the coom artists that draw Lady Dimi-whatever and that Samsung girl.

>>5442399
I don’t, I’m actually getting worse every day for the past couple months and will probably end things soon

....as soon as I get to that comic.....

I don't think perfectionism is an inherently bad excuse. I can get over it and just draw when it's for a friend or something but the moment someone brings up money I get autism mode and can't produce because nothing feels "worthy" of getting paid or something. I guess I need to remember if someone is paying me they know what they're getting anyways. As for the "wahhhh wahhhhh you have to draw fan art" yeah it's wrong technically but pandering to trends absolutely does work. It's literally how most YouTubers get views lmao, I wouldn't discredit it because you don't like people who say it

This desu. My friend told me every time he sees someone draw resident evil tall woman he unfollows since he's so sick of seeing cumbait bullshit pop up

Been told my work's good, but I'm total dogshit at self marketing. Can't bring myself to play the game of ass-kissing people I don't care about, or even despise, just to climb the social ladder. Don't really like to draw fanart because there's not many things I'm a fan of; that's why I make my own shit in the first place lol.

why would we care what your personal opinions are? At least spice it up with a 'why', hating it just 'because' is literally one of the squares on the bingo. If they wanna appease the crowd for personal gain/growth power to them
>>
>>5442399
By marketing myself better than "high tier" artists.

>thinks drawing X content is a free ticket to success
>blames not drawing fanart for lack of popularity
drew 1 high profile fanart early on and it got more likes than everything else I've made in the future years combined
drew porn a few times as a joke and got asked if I did comms by a bunch of people

You can tell this image was made by one of those people that uses /ic/ as another /v/ or /r9k/ and doesn't actually draw. Muh food comparison, but imagine if someone said "Stop pretending that your small, independent restaurant would get more business if it was converted into a McDonald's. With big tits and ass."

Boomers have raped zoomies to the moon.
They were masters and zoomies can't reach their mastery lol.

It certainly is, but I think it's also the most gut wrenching, showing it to my art friends and seeing their reactions of cringe is like whitnessing them seeing themselves in the mirror and not recognizing themselves
