>impostor syndrome
I wish you zoomer nigger stopped inventing fake mental illnesses
What you're describing is completely normal and reasonable and common and logical if you just think about it for 1 second

Your client doesn't know what makes good art or not, if he sees pretty picture he will love it
You do know how much craft is put into it, you see your own flaws, you know your shortcomings, and you see area for improvement, so you don't love it
SEE how simple?
Why do you need to invent some kinda amongus syndrome to describe a simple concept?
>>
>>6125268
not them, but so they don’t have to use a sentence every time:
>Your client doesn't know what makes good art or not, if he sees pretty picture he will love it
>You do know how much craft is put into it, you see your own flaws, you know your shortcomings, and you see area for improvement, so you don't love it
vs
>imposter syndrome
its the shorthand/ rl shortcut for a concept
that’s what language is for. to facilitate communication. the clearer and more concise the nicer it is, so we don’t have to bulk out our conversations where a word or two could be dropped instead, without losing anything
sounds stupid, but it’d be even more frustrating if for concepts you had to, every time, start out “that feeling, you know where it’s like..when you’re sort of”
i do also get you tho, i don’t like all the weird condition terms either, but at least it shortens the time people talk about them even if just a little

ultimately the hours I put in that actually go into the finished piece are only about 3, the other ten are wasted. though that's a couple of extreme cases, sometimes I can get something done in 5-6 hours with only a few setbacks. it's the overthinking, it completely kills my flow. and the fear of finishing something and being faced with what I can make. and coom. it's the coom. i don't mind ecchi/softcore stuff but have 0 interest in 80% of my comms
>>
>>6125599
its simple, in NSFW commisions we just see dick and vagina, we coom and thats pretty much it because we are not thinking straight. However in SFW commisions we are THINKING straight because we are not horny for the drawing, we just want something cute

You guys work so damn fast, it takes me at least a week and a half to complete a fully rendered piece, I think I will never be able to do commissions with this kind of production speed.

then stop delivering shit work and expecting the client to tell you if it's bad or not, that's not impostor syndrome, that's you humble bragging about guilt tripping someone that paid you to do your best, which you did not, you did a bad thing and that makes you a bad person, you're adding a buzzword label to your own actions in order to distance yourself from your own misdeeds
hoops through hoops through hoops
>>
>>6125127
I did a $10 commission once (after being harassed for months on end to open them by the same person) literally just to get them to stop asking and they sent me 15+ messages about how they hated it even after I told them I'd redraw it.

Best part is I was by far the best artist they'd commissioned thus far for the lowest price. They nuked their account shortly after going on a suicidal rant a few days after I'd redrawn the piece because someone totally unrelated to me (that they'd also commissioned) smeared them in their hugbox discord for being rude to them.
Request in question, btw, was not even vaguely related to anything I normally draw and post either.

I feel bad for anyone who does this shit as a source of income.

It is easy mode yes. Everyone knows that. Are you like 10 years old or just a woman who has just gained self-awareness? In any case when you live on easy mode you won't do anything with your life, because why bother?

I do believe women live life on easy mode, that's why I always pretend to be one whenever I can, the difference in how I get treated and how many work possibilities open up is ABYSSMAL
In fact, I don't even bother hiding my real name on my paypal, whenever clients bring it up I just say my account is to my brother's name because women in my country can't have bank accounts and they it eat it up just like that
I don't even have to provide proof of it because if they question it I can just pull the "stop stalking me" card and they immediately stop

Being an actual woman must be so fucking easy, I believe the only thing that holds them back must be their small brains being incapable of using that fact to their advantage, but what do I know, I'm just some dude
>>
>>6131435
what work possibilities?
>>
>>6131435
>the only thing that holds them back must be their small brains being incapable of using that fact to their advantage
Lol imagine believing this. All cultures in history have always warn men about the danger women can pose, and many had manipulated men throughout history from east to west. Modern women know this or why do you think streamers and onlyfan are a thing? They literally just have to sit around doing nothing for pathetic men to watch them doing nothing and even donate money. The only reason few women have accomplished much in all fields is precisely because they have no reason to try and improve
>>
>>6131444
>All cultures in history have always warn men about the danger women can pose,
Now imagine what history has told women and the dangers men have actually done. Or look at current statistics on practically every flavor of sexual and violent crimes regardless of country. Even against other men or boys as well.
>why do you think streamers and onlyfan are a thing? They literally just have to sit around doing nothing...
Retard thinks streaming himself playing video games would be a potential career because there are people who make bank off of donations lol
>The only reason few women have accomplished much in all fields...
There are plenty of fields where women are equal or slowly dominating, such as dentistry. Much more accomplishable than complaining about women on an Indonesian stamp collecting forum, I'm sure.
>>
>>6131444
Do you niggers think about anything aside from sex?
>why do you think women have it on easy mode
>oh well they can essentially prostitute themselves or be a camwhore :^) or emotionally prostitute themselves to some lonely simp and hope he doesn't know your actual address
That's almost always the only answer you people can give.
Do your lives revolve so much on jacking off to hot tub streamers on Twitch and going to strip clubs that you've forgotten that people (men or women) are generally average in terms of attractiveness and don't want to whore themselves and have actual goals and interests in life?

Go get /fit/ and whore your own boypussy, maybe you'll give up on trying to get money for your poorly drawn anime porn

First of all ywnbaw
>Now imagine what history has told women and the dangers men have actually done. Or look at current statistics on practically every flavor of sexual and violent crimes regardless of country...
It's always this point ins't it? You retards always jump to this reasoning first instead of trying to read whatever is written. Of fucking course men have done much worse shit. The point is men in most culture are the dominating sex, so advices for rulers and such are all for men, and it's always about women's ability to manipulate men. If you even reject this point then you are too deluded to even argue with
>Retard thinks streaming himself playing video games would be a potential career because there are people who make bank off of donations lol
Facts remain that girls doing those things can earn money way easier than men. And why not? Men are thirsty beasts, they would pay to get a tiny bit of their attention if deprived of pussies irl.
>There are plenty of fields where women are equal or slowly dominating, such as dentistry. Much more accomplishable than complaining
It's all so tiresome. Take a serious look at thousands of years of history across all cultures. Women are not dumb, they literally just have no reason to try so they don't improve. Sure there're a breed of career chasing women nowadays, but do you think they are remotely in the majority you dumb tranny? I won't argue about your feel good facts about how women are slowly dominating in fields though, that's just a waste of time when we're talking about a more general thing.

>>6131482
Calm down nigger, and try to write something comprehensible.
But from what I could decipher from your abhorrent mess of a post, you are dumb if you think women don't use their appearance to their advantage. Not all of them do, but even the ones that don't still get treated better just by the virture of being a woman. I'm not blaming them just that you're dumb for trying to argue against reality
>>
>>6131504
>ywnbaw
Lay off the tranny porn you NPC, they're living rent-free in your head
>you retards always jump...
Who gives a shit about "advice" and proverbs? Why is that your priority and reasoning opposed to the actual reality?
Ultimately it's other men that will be the bigger danger to himself. Last time I've checked, men aren't immune from getting manipulated by other men either, just not sexually unless you're homo or something.
There is advice about men that are given by and to women as well, you don't think women aren't wary of the opposite sex.
There's good reason why no body wants a male babysitter after all (almost all paedophiles and consumers of CP are men).
>Facts remain that girls doing those things can earn money way easier than men
just whore urself bro
>Take a serious look at thousands of years of history across all cultures...
For example, it's not even been two entire generations since women have been legally able to get a bank account in the US. Historically, women were responsible for being housewives and mothers first and foremost while the husbands were the ones providing financially. It was only fairly recent in the entirety of human history that getting something like a career (unless it was something like nursing).
The fact is that gradually women are making larger numbers as generations grow older.
>but do you think they are remotely in the majority you dumb tranny
Again, lay off the porn. Touch grass
Also I don't believe the majority of people, men or women, are "career chasing" to begin with. Doesn't exactly refute the point that many careers are about equal or becoming dominated by women.
Go for a dental cleaning or some shit, maybe you'll finally get a woman's touch and leave Pornhub alone.

Was cut off.
Have you ever watched that Playboy documentary about Hugh (Secrets of Playboy I think it was called)? One of the bunnies stated that they wanted to become a veterinarian but it wasn't exactly acceptable as a woman during the 70s, but today they've overtaken male veterinarians in the US.

You'd be outright delusional if you think women are absent from "all fields" as if it's still the 60s or some shit
>>
>>6131526
>I won't bother anymore
You were free to respond to anything else of the post. Or actually refute it instead of denying that it isn't women that's the "danger" men should care about.
Y'know, I was even kind enough to read your post after the "ywnbaw" part, which I would've/should've immediately disregarded because only a fag who can't think for himself uses it unironically.

It's 12am here so good night anon. You really should get that dental cleaning though.
