thoughts on my artist statement?

Artist Statement

As someone who suffers from autism, my greatest frustration in life has always been my inability to articulate my inner emotions and share my profound feelings. Thankfully, through my artwork I have found a means of expressing myself. These three works in particular are references to powerful emotional states I have experienced, and intense thoughts I have had.

I am a mixed media artist. I doodle whenever I have the chance, and these rough sketches are the first step towards creating my work. From there I use digital software to transform these rough sketches to a more vibrant and specific encapsulation of what I had in mind when I sat down and started drawing.

Pazuzu, the Babylonian Demon is a visual representation of the spine chilling despair that permeates through your body when something terrible has just happened. It is the visual equivalent of the anxiety you would experience after failing to slow down quick enough and ramming into the rear end of a car that has a “baby on board” bumper sticker.
(Better example, influences, description)
The happy medium represents a laid back, whimsical and most importantly happy head space. It differs from my other works in that it is not intended to represent a fleeting emotional state, but rather the state of mind that those who have achieved inner peace such as Snoop Dogg or the Dali Llama most frequently find themselves in.

In memoriam is a tribute to those who unfortunately did not emerge victorious over the oppressive forces of mental illness.

How does one go about *anonymously* and successfully selling lewd/NFSW art online? I couldn't give two shits about making it a defining part of my portfolio. I'm broke and I just figure I'm competent enough for it, plus there's way more of a demand.

You don't :
1) You might not care.People looking at your portfolio do though. Which means turning away SFW businesses that don't want to be associated with that, turning away parents who wouldn't share it to their kids,turning away kids, and attracting compulsive wankers.
2) You only want the big bucks? You can do very, very disgusting things for big bucks, you know. If this is your only incentive you will accept requests from the creepiest weirdo's around,who want their favourite Looney toons characters eating diapers (I had a few messages for commissions like these, I politely declined all of them)
3) Do you REALLY want to spend your time drawing dongs & pussies? Look at all kinds of fetishes "for reference"? Hide your activities to not be seen as a pervert by a good part of the population?

Think about it 7 times because this is irreversible.

>> No.3988659

>How does one go about *anonymously* and successfully selling lewd/NFSW art online?

tl;dr You can't, you can hide behind seven different identities all you want but they will still find you out when the day comes that you wish you haven't done NSFW art in the first place.

If you don't care about breaking into the "professional art industry" (which is completely fine) just do it normally.

>>3988618 is right on point 2, don't ever draw:
>gay/bara/western shota
>autism-infested fetishes like diapers

You will never regain your sanity and they will make you never want to draw again. There's nothing wrong about drawing porn and only retarded puritans cares about maintaining a public image as long as you are not trying to go pro in a SFW environment, just do it smartly and don't fall for the furrypill.

Here are my tips for the following:

DA - post your work onto over 100 groups. It's time consuming, but it's the most guarantee out of everything listed here to get you followers.

Twitter - socialize a bit in discussions. A lot of artists use twitter to ask questions or to bring up topics and it's a good way to respond and get noticed. Once you start getting a few re-tweets you're pretty much set. Now just wait to get lucky and have something re-tweeted by someone with a lot of followers.

Tumblr - bandwagon onto something currently popular and use their hashtags.

Instagram - ?

Facebook - ?

!!MOST IMPORTANTLY!!, post FREQUENTLY and stay active as possible. If you ever wondered "how did that artist who draws like a 6th grader get so many followers?" More than likely they post something new every day of the month.

If you have any tips for gaining followers on specific social medias, please post.

If you're drawing for longer hours do you use one of these when you get bored (I guess question to both female and male anons, depending what you're into); Does it help you focus and/or fulfill the need for multitasking so you can continue to draw nonchalantly?

I got caught deep in private property a few times while painting here in Europe and the owners not only didn't care but always acted happy that I was painting their farm / shed / house (even though I apologize in advance). I have drawn many people of all kinds who clearly understood I was drawing something in their direction, and never got approached by a subject. In general if you are an artist you can get away with being rather invasive. I had a brief infatuation with street photography and that was a completely different experience, you can't just go in people's faces with a camera without some serious guts and you have to take serious precautions to not look like you're taking a shot of a person specifically.

I bring my sketchbook everywhere I go (pubs, school, park, beach) and I try to draw whenever I have some time or I get inspired. It's a great conversation starter but people are always shy when they notice I'm drawing them.

>> No.3988259

Good question. Maybe should torch all sources of distraction.

>> No.3988268

Really consider what you're asking. You know all of the answers, because you know what has to be done, and THAT'S because you know your end goal.

You want to commit hours to a project you don't naturally commit time to. Why? To get better at something you care about. This is important, because you have to ask yourself if it's important enough to give up other aspects of your life. Even video and anime has value in a person's life, so spending time on productive things is less "finding more time in your day" and more "trading time in your day," or trading your areas of focus. If you think this over and truly consider this goal worth sacrificing for, then you have your "how." There's no secret trick, just understanding and accepting the sacrifices you have to make to get where you want to be. The rest is generic scheduling/punctuality shit you probably already know.

Honestly OP you don't need to do that, getting good at art isn't that complicated, you probably already know what course material would make for a good art course.

Look at the improvement that art students make (not FZD) you'll notice that most people don't make any impressive improvements. FZD is an outlier because they've very selective who they allow in and even they have many failures who don't improve.

Art improvement is all about learning new material and practicing it enough to get good at it.
All the knowledge you could possibly want is available for free anyway, there's no magical top tier course that will make you get good easily, just get back to studying man

I used to really hate this kind of soulless shit and the thought of the retards buying it, but it doesn't get to me anymore because it's just always the same shit, and what can you do to stop it? For Sakimi she always draw the same couple rubber-skinned sameface models cosplaying as whatever is fotm with a shitty background and (usually) random light sources. It has good rendering but the flimsy anatomy and uncanny faces makes it so the longer you look at it, the worse it gets. There isn't much more to say, it's okay "art".
Thing is, as bad as it gets, you can learn from it. Why do you think something so unappealing is so popular, how do you think she got there?
