If you're on a break after drawing and feel like sharing what's on your mind about what you're working on, the industry, things that excite you about art, or anything that frustrates you about drawing or the process of art then grab a cup of water and chill out here.

my sister does art too but has a very unique style
she only draws her OCs, of which she has at least 700 (no joke btw, just looked at her toyhou.se account) and all of them have the same wonky anatomy, it's always the same pose and there's no sense of dimension to any of them. She's been at it ever since we were kids, but she refuses to use reference or study things. From a technical standpoint, talking about draftsmanship, she has to be less than a beginner. She can't render, she has no clue about anatomy, shape language, design theory, composition or anything else really. Now, there's a point to be made that her stuff has more SOVL than anything I'll ever come up with, because she isn't tainted by the grind or any retarded desire to """"""make it"""""".
I know that I'm depressed, that I take the whole art-thing too seriously and that I'm a gigantic faggot for even complaining about her naive outlook on art in the first place. But what else can I say when she shows me the same picture over and over again, having progressed so little over the years? What am I supposed to give other than weak praise when I know in the back of my head how much there is to learn of which she will never touch anything. The more I learn about art, the more I realize how much I don't know, which in turn makes her achievements even smaller ...
I upset her again today

How do some anons get multi-layering of audio going on? Like that one TLOU2 one with Ellie.

I got hit with a suspension on Twitter last night for evading, but it seems like a glitch that's hitting mostly artists under 10k. Sucks because I like that "micro-blog" style along with posting art format. Twitter also seemed more original character friendly. Sucks but I guess I need to find a new site to share art.
>>
>>6677339

Youtube recs is trash and impacts my mental health. Got real tired of seeing the same shit recommend to me no matter how many different videos I watched. Started using a paid extension on ios called unTrap just to get rid of the home page, suggestions, and shorts. The shorts were by far the most annoying feature and it mainly had to do with youtube showing me the most obnoxious creators making anime rec videos, spoiling the show and not giving the title of the anime. Or recommending me stupid fucking cartoons from the early 2000s “DO YOU REMEMBER THIS SHOW xDDD” or “OMG MATURE SHOW DID YOU NOTICE THIS SCENE WHEN YOU WERE A KID???”.

And if it wasn’t that it became DBZ/YGO funny moment clips on repeat. I don’t know what the fuck is going on at youtube but they need to fix their site.

I've been told to never put hashtags in the tweet so I just put the name of the character in the tweet. I wasn't expecting over a dozen likes as a beg, but forcing myself to do fanart and getting 0 likes from it was very depressing.

picrel is the tweet. I ended up just deleting it
>>
>>6677620
>forcing myself to do fanart
common misconception. you should never force yourself to do fanart because it starts to become noticeable you're just pandering.

draw fanart of the things you actually like, that way the things you draw are actually relevant and the people who are also into the series are 'in' on your ideas.

touhou is a dead franchise anyways, you shoulda jumped in on star rail.
>>
>>6677620
> 0 likes

> poorly drawn

Checks out. You have two problems: poor skill and small reach. Of course posting will feel like shit until those get better.
Don't let it get to you. Keep drawing what you want, posting and moving on to the next drawing. Numbers suck for beginners, that's just how it is.
>>
>>6677620
>touhou
lol it's not 2009 anymore. Even kancolle that killed touhou is dead now.
>>
>>6677622
Maybe I should've worded that better. I'm really into drawing fabrics and dresses so drawing the touhou characters was always pretty fun for me. It's just a general thing I developed recently where I hate drawing fanart. Every time I try to draw fanart of a series I even like it always just ends up looking soulless because it's not my character. Whenever I draw an oc I also get 0 likes, but that's a bit more understandable.

And when I really think about It I can kind of understand people not being interested in ocs I draw. Why the hell would someone care about my character? So I thought drawing a semi popular character would have a better chance at attracting people, but I see what you're saying. I guess I was wrong.
>>
>>6677620
motherfucker post that again but with #touhou #東方Project in it along with the character name (doesn't need to be a hashtag). give it a few hours. if you still don't get any traction then sure, delete it.

You have to have some level of autism to draw star rail stuff because you need to understand the memes. There is the pin-up crowd and then there is the comic crowd and the latter fares better. Especially when its player base just uses AI for all the lewds they want; AI can’t do the meme stuff.

I suppose I need to check out those sketches and manga because I have no idea how to make it work.
Thanks.
>>
>>6677874
Oh, you're the same anon, I may have confused you. The animator sketches is how chickenscratching can work, because they are more preoccupied with movement than looking clean. The manga is you original question, just look at an ordinary One Piece chapter and you will see lots of panels with no/limited hatching.
>>
>>6677889
The common misconecption is that messy = chicken scratchy.
Chicken scratch is specifically those small feathering lines /beg/s do when building larger lines because they don't have the line control to make a solid consistent line.

Which feathering has a place and purpose, but it's purpose isn't as a building block for larger lines, that's just something people who lack line control rely on.

>small feathering lines /beg/s do when building larger lines
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAacGI5Zs5Q
Go to 1:40 to see he going into the final line
Look, chickenscratching. How does he make it work? Cause he ain't beg. Don't take this as a permit to begs do chickenscratching, it's just that it isn't a hard rule to never do it, but for learning, then yeah, a beg shouldn't chickenscratch.

because
>its a sketch and you can do whatever you want in sketch phases because its about building overall shapes
>if you look at him sketching the lines are typically the entire curve of the form that make up the individual muscle groups/gestures of any given body part.
the arm isn't 1 continuous line, and he's breaking it down. he uses more than 1 line because its a sketch which he later goes over with more confident lines.

I did it again, I fell for the Caffeinated Jew and because I slept in late for the holiday weekend I skipped my daily goy dose of coffee and the whole fucking day has been nothing but excruciating head aches, and hourly naps.

>>6678316
I fell into cycle of caffeine overconsumption. It really I more enjoyable and productive after a break. It’s more likely to trigger a nice happy flow state after at least a couple weeks off. I doubt you’ve had real, good sleep in a while. Maybe give nightly magnesium a try. It and other minerals are depleted from caffeinated drink consumption (though they claim it is not a diuretic.) OT has a relatively mild effect but it seems to relax the body and encourage deeper sleep.

Have you ever tried setting your monitor's color saturation to 0 making it monochrome, drawing, and then seeing what obnoxious colors you ended up using and how the drawing is surprisingly still appealing to look at?
You should try that, it's fun.
>>
>>6679020
You are setting your monitor to monochrome and then intentionally going out of your way to pick (possibly) random colors?
>>
>>6679024
Even if the colors are monochrome, the values are still there. You're drawing with the values alone.
I could link to some 14 year olds doing that, as motivation for you. It's a really cool idea for an activity.

Seems like a lot of fun, doesn't it.
>>
>>6679046
Ah I just noticed that this method relies on you using a color palate you're not familiar with.
So with a software on your computer you gotta go to a website that generates a random palate of colors like https://coolors.co/ , then you screen shot it and open it in your software, then you colorpicker from it and draw in greyscale mode.
>>
>>6679027
No, I understand, especially given that I generally only draw in monochrome. I just don't understand why you dont just simply cut out the middleman.
>>
>>6679054
What do you mean cut out the middleman, are you talking about just drawing in monochrome for values practice and just in general?
Colors are fun. Seeing what you colorblindly did with a random palate is interesting.

Does anyone have any tips on getting out of drawing mode?
I have this issue where I just can't relax because I feel like I need to be drawing all the time. It's extremely toxic because I can never really relax, even when I'm about to go to bed and have drawn literally all day I still have this feeling of guilt if I don't draw just a bit more. And then I do what the voices tell me, and still go to bed feeling like I didn't do enough.

It brings me intense anxiety, guilt and an inability to relax. I have this constant, anticipatory feeling of something needing to be done urgently.

no matter what is your goal with art, you need to start looking at art as a companion
the reason why you feel so guilty and anxed out is because you feel like you need to "get to grandmaster rank at art to get money and clout and then i can chill", or that you started late and need to catch up
the reality is, art is a lifelong friend, not a chore, or a challenge or anything like that
I have been exactly the same way anon, and I plateaud a lot because of that, I draw daily for a minimum of hour, though usually 3 hours, and I have been exactly the same way as you until I realised it will take time to reach a good level of art
once you start looking at art as something to help you and to accompany you instead of something you need to conquer, not only will your gainz become more consistent, but you will be able to chill out more, probably not completely, because I guess we're the same in this aspect, but once you draw you 1 or 2 draw sessions per day, you wont feel guilty
not to mention, if you draw 2 hours a day for 10 years, thats almsot 10k hours and you can keep that up EASILY
on the other hand, if you turbo push it, you risk burning out and then getting out of the loop for a week, a month, or longer
also, going out to nature, or for a coffee, or going gym will keep you not only motivated, but will give your brain rest time to make use of new information, will rest/strenghten your hands and back and so on
i strongly recommend you pick up a small hobby on the side so while youre not "progressing art" you're still doing something to make you happy, I personally picked up japanese and running

Honestly, same. Give me a 6 episode OVA with insane production quality and beautiful art over a 24 episode TV series full of corner cutting and dodgy CG. It also helps that I'm, unfortunately, no longer a teenager and have actual responsibilities and shit (not to mention creative ambitions) that prevent me from spending hours at a time watching animu.
>>
>>6679131
>watch anime that's 10/10 everywhere, so it has to be good right?
>every episode is 95% of random slop, then action into "TO BE CONTINUED", just enough entertainment so that you sigh and boot up next episode so that you see what happens
>nothing happens next episode, they "run away" from the fight or something
>you already started next episode so you wont turn it of
>repeat slogging through slop until episode 23 and 24 where you get cool ending
>you have not enjoyed 95% of the series but you will still rate it good cuz ending gave you good chemicals
i despise this addicting mechanic bullshit
>>
>>6679162
What I don't get is that most anime slop these days are "advertisement" for the manga/LN in the first place. That's why they justify such low quality.

But if that's the case, why not have just a few episode OVAs that showcase the best of what the series has to offer so people are encouraged to read more?
For many of these series the bad art, the bad pacing, and the horrible production value chases me off from wanting to read the source material. Ironically its only when tis a series I'm already reading that I get interested in the anime, and then sub sequentially disappointed when its dog shit.
>>
It's been a while since I've been so discouraged. I'm finally better than anyone in my general circle, but I let that delude me for way too long. Now I'm applying myself to bigger projects and realizing my goals are still so far away. But they're also close enough that I would be insane to give up now. I have no other choice but to go forward at this point. It's like deciding to climb a cliff, getting half way, and realizing turning around would be as much effort as simply reaching the top. But getting to that half way point was fucking exhausting and took forever, and now you have to go through all that effort one more time. I can taste where I want to be as an artist. It's right within my view but god damn i'm tired.

Im not drawing 2 hours a day but im drawing every day, sometimes for a few minutes or sometimes for half an hour, i still feel like i can build up to longer and longer times, i just have to reach the next set time first, is it pointless to do it like this?

>>6679277
>is it pointless to do it like this?
Nothing's pointless as long as you're having fun, Anon. That, and a bit of drawing is always better than no drawing.
>>
>>6679281
Im not studying anatomy or anything, i just want to draw and see what i can do, im already kind of getting better with shading but its still all shit, but i feel like if i just keep going even if its not even an hour a day, my strokes will get more confident

It really doesn't feel like there is a purpose, im scared now im just going to end up like above anons post about how his sister drew for years and never improved, maybe i will get to a point where i will actually want to immerse myself in study and enjoy my art enough to pursue that endeavor, but right now i just want to draw, im drawing from references and im taking inspo from artists i like, am I already failing and will fail or is there some kind of glimpse that i might have a better set of art skills in like, 1 year? Im sorry if i sound really naive or weak, im so scared because there are stuff i really want to do with my life and idk if art is one of them but im trying and i really want to at least make it something, but i can tell it might be a short lived interest i drop in a couple months which im horrified of, i want to get better but the concept of self study keeps me from ever wanting to get better with anatomy and construction, because there is so fucking much stuff to learn and books to buy and videos to watch and courses to buy, drawing for fun or drawing for fun and better are separate but i have a fantasy in my mind that doing something for fun at first may lead me to take it more seriously as time goes on
>>
>>6679300
anon I didn't even read all of that, but if you want to improve, you need to draw stuff that's REALLY challenging and fun and you barely finish it with how challenging it was
if you draw 3/4 portrait shots and its fun, sure, but you won't improve much except with 5 min 3/4 portrait shots

you need to find balance between fun and difficult, what I consider fun is doing cool warriors doing cool shit, so I just chose a difficult pose, difficult armor, and I draw it, i push through and once I do it, I have gained the skill
if you just draw a simple pose simple armor, you will only improve at that and stagnate

How do people come up with random backgrounds every single time? I'm tired of my characters floating in a white void but I don't want to put some random square behind them.
>>
>>6679304
Its honestly ridiculous because even thinking about ever challenging myself with art makes me feel like crying, because it feels so inhumanly impossible to me or for me to do, the millions of resources out there that are better than others or will only get you X result, the only kind of challenge art i can maybe find myself enjoying is like, drawing animals, but there is a point where i try to copy stuff but still looks half assed because i did not copy down EVERY detail, but if i challenge myself with those kind of drawings, will it make some impact? I want to eventually do all kinds of drawing, animal and human and even inanimate objects, but can i still do like my silly shitty art in the meantime while I practice? I just have to set up separate times to practice the challenge art and then do stupid art i want to do or somehow combine them? From now on im going to time my drawing sessions, but im starting with 20 minutes because that's about the average im doing already daily but i will add like 2 mins every other day or maybe every week or that might be too slow

(Pic related is not my art)

for example i have study sessions and fun sessions cut up, the study seshes are fun, but also very frustrating
right now im doing 5min figure studies with no erase and no ctrl-z, im doing it to build up figure confidence, im at pose 100/1000 rn

then i will sit down and do a for fun piece, where i try to apply what i learned and just chill
pic related is a study piece, I'd spend like an hour or so doing them, then take a break and do a piece like this for example >>6679157

or you can combine them, do a few figures and then dress them up or make them fight etc
also if now u feel like crying when studying for 20 minutes, i can GUARANTEE you after you do it 30x you will feel like it's your second nature

I watched not one, but two artists fall for an AI generated background when they were looking for a backdrop TWICE. Wasn't even the modern kind of AI shit, it was the type where everything was genuinely complete unrecognizable gibberish where the vague colors are there but you can't actually make out the shape of any object if you tried.
Not interested in a debate about AI being too convincing because anyone would call them retards if you saw the pictures they chose but I am concerned how a lot of people just can't catch stuff like that even though they're staunchly anti-AI. Some people really just don't have that instant eye for detail but maybe being a former paranoid freak makes it easier to scrutinize things on the spot.

How do I stop myself from feeling inadequate when I see artwork that's awesome but is also just completely out of my creative zone? Like I already know artists will prefer drawing one style of thing over another, I'm sure a traditional low fantasy artist doesn't mind that they can't create the same things as an exotic insectoid alien artist, and vice versa.

Pixiv, maybe? The problem is that you are dealing with humans, and many humans like to jump on the trend. Add in any aspect of social media-ness (likes, retweets, etc) and the issue gets exacerbated further. It's literally never gonna go away.

Anyways, tangetial to this, I think it's healthy to look at and be inspired by other styles, or, as you call it, creative zones. It's like how sci-fi was inspired by horror and created space horror, intergenre inspirations can only breed new stuff.

>why are you feeling inadequate?
I feel dumb I guess. There's a lot of art that I love looking at and the occasional gem on /ic/ is pretty cool but I just end up feeling stupid because I typically just draw cartoony anime boys in modern clothing and I feel envious about people who draw really cool creative fantasy stuff which I've always failed when I try myself.

I feel your feels. It seems like you've thought this through already, so I'm just gonna share some tips on what I say to attention-seeking begs:

-I like this [specific thing]
-This reminds me of [story, other art,]
-What's your favorite part about this piece?
-[It] looks so [happy]!
-This is [great]. What inspired you to draw this?

Alternatively, I just straight up ignore when my beg friends post if I feel like they are really phoning it in.

You get no engagment because your art is bad and this is what you deserve. Please save this picture somewhere. Go draw for another year. Then you can look back and laugh at yourself for thinking this pic was worthy of likes.

>>6682731
You want a passion, but don’t yet feel it for anything. What do you love? What do you care about? If you do not yet know (that’s okay, you are relatively young) then I suggest you go out and experience some life. Whether it be walking alone in nature or emerging yourself in bacon for table public group situations, maybe explore the world to learn about yourself.

Reminds me of that one time I tried copying that Cheshire Cat from Black Souls by other artist until it hit me that the artist fucked up anatomy to show more of boobs. Not the same thing, of course, but I think I have to rely on myself if I want to get job done. That also means I won't be drawing like all those Japanese artist because on how I perceive things.

Recently I've been finding myself automatically constructing context for simple sketches. For example, I sketch a simple face, start adding features for a character, and then I find myself starting to think what makes sense as an expression, what they might be in the midst of doing, and therefore their relationship to their surroundings, ie background.
I've always thought that ideally you should have an idea or a composition in mind which you construct the picture around, so this is kind of weird to me but also fun? It's definitely good practice at least.

Perks of coming from an IT background, I guess.

I'm 2 years in now. I'm still /beg/ as shit but decided once I got upper /beg/ I'd try doing content like comics and images for twitter. But the issue is I'm at work 9 hours a day. So I go home, try to rush through dinner/workout, and get back to trying to balance studying (because I need to get back into it if I'm going to improve) and working on whatever project I'm doing at the moment, which right now is trying to finish this comic I'm behind on. But it just feels like I have no time. I'm neglecting my family to focus on drawing, I don't ever play games with my friends anymore except on the weekend and I don't even watch anime anymore. The only entertainment I get is during downtime at work when I read. It's really starting to feel like I'm out of the loop with all of my friends and I have less and less to talk about with them because I've only been spending time on art and not learning or experiencing anything else. And I'm not even progressing that much because I can only draw max 4 hours a day, and recently it seems like I can't keep the energy/focus to even keep up with that? Especially on weekends I just feel burnt out completely even though I cant think of anything else but drawing. Does anyone else share this frustration? What the hell am I supposed to do?

Post on Pixiv Sketch instead. Sure it may not be good for clout, and people don't talk very much (even Japanese amongst Japanese), but the somewhat small userbase of people are almost universally there to draw, look at other artists' work, and in general just vibe.

I’m starting to regret making a nsfw fetish account. It’s all I draw now, and it’s not good for improving my skills. Getting followers the first few weeks was fun, but now every day I’m worried about it being discovered. I originally wanted to make easy money off of it, but I didn’t think through how I would explain the money to people I know, much less the fact that it would immediately connect my identity to this art. Even if I wipe it later, the Internet is forever. And what about future employers? A secret I would take to the grave being seen by thousands of strangers… I can’t bear it. I can’t be the only one who feels this way.

I run a patreon. Anime artist and nsfw artist follow me. Then they unfollow me when they realize that I try to shill. Or that I don't follow them back or many other different reasons. What are these people expecting from a business account?
>>
>>6685909
Some people have run bots that follow and unfollow, don’t take it personal. They aren’t physically going back in their list to unfollow you. Same with likes; they like your art and you check their profile and they’ve already liked so many other images your image is buried beneath 20 other pictures under a minute.
>>
>>6685909
Followers fluctuate. There's no reason to get upset, or even care at all unless they're someone you talk to and know.

Any other burgers noticing that rolls of paper towels and toilet paper aren't being perforated well anymore? They tear apart like ass. How am I supposed to paint under these conditions

My mom just keeps buying the cheap gas station brand if I don’t buy replacements for everyone in the house. Nobody in my house knows the concept of equal contribution. I switched to wiped anyway.

seems like I fixed search ban on my end but I’m still suggestion banned but I can live with that. Search ban made none of my tweets show up in the search.
>>
>>6686456
I think I have to maybe gut some mutuals who post “bad content” who are also suggestion banned to fix the issue.
>>
>>6686016
I get the second or third most expensive brands and they always tear at crazy angles now. I don't need a 6 inch triangle of paper towel dangling off every sheet ffs this shit reeks of lazy factory maintenance i want the full square as advertised

For anyone else struggling with way too many inspirations or doesnt know what to focus on when studying art, I recommend downloading Pureref and sorting your inspirations. I am doing that on my coffee break, and i feel like it's helping me realize what i should focus on more.

I think for me drawing is just a cope for being ugly. Like I unironically took the "just be an artist/musician if you're ugly, dude" incel advice line way too seriously.

The problem with that is that even artist girls prefer beg Chad over an intcel, and a lot of them outright don't want to date guys into art anyway. And non-artist girls don't care, like being good at drawing is a non-factor for them.

The only benefit is that it makes me feel like I'm not completely worthless since I had the discipline to learn but I'm still dying alone kek.

Aaaaaahhhh I had the absolute BEST dream ever I can’t believe it!! I had a super cute girl friend and I have to redact some stuff because it’s too graphic but oh my heaven it was the best dream I’ve ever had in a long, long time thank you Jesus I’m glad I kept praying every night. I need to write the memory down before it all fades away bye.
>>
>>6686954

After I wrote down the events and thought about it, I found that perhaps my brain dreamed of such a thing because of a page of a manga I saved off discord that I really liked not too long ago. I guess I liked it so much I had a whole dream about it.

Many great artists did xxx like that Junny guy doing stuff for Tekken, or the case with Masamune Shirow.
Unless it's cripingly cringe I wouldn't worry about your financial scars. People understand

Why are people in the YouTube comment section fucking retarded? I watched a video where someone used a drawing tablet software from 2004 and I commented telling them I used the exact same one from back then, the drivers were fucked back then too so don't worry, great video blah blah. Get a reply from some furry pfp imbecile saying "Umm that software didn't exist back then.". Nigga what? "Yeah Google didnt exist back then so you couldn't download it.". Tried to tell him it was widely available on magazine demo discs only to get another reply from some other retard reverberating the same nonsense. Meanwhile I'm sitting there with a fucking disc in hand looking at it. Then yet ANOTHER total buffoon replies to say that I couldn't possibly be using the same software because the plug-ins shown in the video were specially coded in, despite the video nor the uploader saying they had to do that. In fact it isn't even a plug-in, it was a feature already included in the program. I'm still getting notifications from people in that thread shitting on each other or shitting on me or telling me I'm wrong, etc etc.
Did they put something in the water that makes people confident + retarded at the same time or something?
>>
>>6688040
Because they're kids or straight up autistic.
I stopped commenting anywhere because i would always get those type of comments and if on rare occasions i happen to comment, i just ignore any and all replies or delete the original comment if it blows up so all the replies get deleted as well.

Sometimes you can't tell whether they're actually retarded, just want to "ratio" you or just want to waste your time and discredit you for reasons beyond human any comprehension.
>Did they put something in the water that makes people confident + retarded at the same time or something?
The dumbest people are always the most confident; combine that with unsupervised social media/tiktok consumption + phones + parents who do not give a shit and you get the retards we have now.
Their whole mentality and reasoning is
>"if i don't know about it, it isn't true and trying to conceive anything beyond my own shadow is for crazies. If the tree made no sound when it fell, it never existed."
And when you reveal information that goes against what they know, they will become hostile towards you.

The solution is to ban/restrict kids and autists from commenting or post on the internet. Public discourse will immediately become more bearable.

That is as far as i could explain it to you. Fags on this board aren't that different.
>>
>>6688075
Honestly very well explained.

>participating in youtube comments
you're just as retarded as them

Yeah microplastic and women's birth control. It's a slight improvement over leaded gasoline and paint chips I guess.
>>
>>6688120
at least leaded gasoline dont make the frogs gay

One will make you physically aggressive and stupid, the other will make you uncontrollably emotional and homosexual. I say bring back the lead and nature will sort itself out.

I'm so terrified of drawing. I'd rather clean my entire apartment than draw. I'd rather run naked outside than draw. but why?
>>
>>6675069
when i started drawing i sucked ass at drawing hands, so instead of pushing through and improving i decided to just draw all my characters with animal crossing ball hands, now i can draw pretty decent art, but the hands look horrific. kill me

YouTube comments used to be fun little arguments that can go on for months, sometimes a whole year. Now it’s just Reddit comments.

I'm on /ic/ at fucking 7 in the morning because all my socials are fucking dead. No one is giving me attention and I'm fucking upset about it

Half the time I hit “view replies” it won’t even show them. Much is verboten these days.

I am so tired of doing commissions. Not only do they take a lot of effort, but also the vast majority of them are boring or unappealing. I would quit, but I need to feed my family and pay my mother's medical bills. Well, at least now I'm working with a client who pays me well, unlike my other regular clients.
>>
>>6686817
I do, and made that clear she's doubled the project cost already. At this point the money matters less to me than the fact they're fucking up my schedule for other clients waiting on me and driving me completely insane.
My new plan is turnaround time will get slower and slower.
>>
>>6688488
red pill me on these boring requests
>>
>>6688040
>Did they put something in the water that makes people confident + retarded at the same time or something?
That combo describes most hobbyists you will encounter on the internet. People pretending to know in absence of real experience is a cancer infecting all hobbies.
>>6688075
Imo it's too optimistic to say it's all kids and retards. Most of these jackasses online are fairly normal blokes in their day to day lives. But the thing they go to bullshit about on the internet (art supplies, woodworking, sports, cars, vidya, firearms, anything) is their outlet to be the genius and impress everyone with their knowledge. There's little authentic discussion because there's few people with authentic experience vs loads of people trying to buy a fun addition to their personality.

>>6688500
It's a very personal opinion, but I'm into femdom and feminization but most of the time people ask me for
>boring romantic shit
>literally gay shit
>cuckold shit
Also, most of these commission are quite complex. I'm talking about multi-panel color comics with backgrounds. And to think that there are people who only commission pin-ups with simple backgrounds...
