So if you haven't heard...South Korea is cracking down on porn artists and arresting them. This caused Ero Doll to shut down all his various accounts and nuke all his art. Sooo...let's post some of his newest stuff so he isn't forgotten.
I'd also appreciate a archive/zip of all his work if someone has one. The sadpanda galleries are WAY behind unfortunately.
SK has banned porn forever. You can't sell it commercially. They've also installed internet filters to block all kinds of sites. It seems now they want to crack down on non-profit porn as well.
That's what happens when you let extremist Christians run your country.
Jeez, this sucks. I wonder how many will follow the freezing guys and just bolt over to Japan or some other country. I'm a huge fan of Snowball22, who now does mostly sexy art for mobile card games, but I'm still worried he might quit his job as well. That would really, really suck.
OP here, currently in the process of saving everything I can from the web and will compile it into a zip later. Still missing a ton of his Pixiv stuff but I found a loophole to grab recently deactivated tumblr submissions.
Anyone want to post a list of all the good SK pixiv artists that will be affected by this?
You can use this https://github.com/Nandaka/PixivUtil2 to download everything from their pixiv including metadata.
The principle that a crime needs to have a victim is a deeply liberal commitment. The idea is that people have different conceptions of the good (different ideas about what kind of life they want to live) and that this is acceptable (a reasonable pluralism of comprehensive moral doctrines) even if their particular life-plans really are objectively uninformed or irrational. From this perspective the state must be neutral towards the good, and just ensure that everyone can go about promoting it without being obstructed by each other or by institutions playing favorites.Traditionalist (pre-modernist) moralities (with the exception of republican / neo-roman doctrines) pay a lot more attention to imposing a unified conception of the good on all the citizens of a polity or developing their virtue and so on. You get this as far back as Plato who basically wanted to ban the Odyssey and the Iliad, because in his view they wouldn't develop the proper dispositions of character (the virtues) of the citizens. Today this is taken up by the right-communitarians that reject the liberal precedent.
Basically, some people decide what is the informed / rational good, or what is virtuous, and then they make sure everyone is virtuous or shares the same conception of the good. Their justification usually follows either the naive conservative position that this is our culture or the best culture and we need to maintain it, or the more sophisticated communitarian position that this harmonization of the values of the citizens or the development of their virute is necessary to avoid anomie and social disintegration.
tl;dr: Hentai is bad or reading hentai is not virtuous and the state ought not to be neutral towards the good or the virtue of its citizens.
This is a good post. Also, one can support the state engaging in morally coercive behavior because you as an individual are directed by your belief system to ensure the morality of the community.
I.e. if you allow your neighbor to engage in immoral behavior, you are culpable before God (or whatever) for not taking whatever steps might be possible to prevent it. And voting to ban porn is an easy step you as an individual can take.
Obviously I strongly disagree with this point of view, but it is one that many people hold.
1. Have account in e-hentai
2. log in
3. enter exhentai
4. That's all
If you get sadpanda that's because you tried to enter exhentai without having logged in e-hentai in the past. This saved the "yay" cookie in your browser. Either clean your cookies or go to preferences -> privacy -> view cookies -> search for exhentai -> delete yay cookie and try to enter again.
That's the official deal. I don't know what problems are there with low-power (newer) accounts. I have a two year account and have no problem with this.
You could have a problem if you're not saving cookies at all, seeing that exhentai checks for the log in cookie of e-hentai to let you get in.
Other than that, I'd have posted an e-hentai link if there existed one.
>South Korea is cracking down on porn artists and arresting them.
Thanks for alerting me.
I hope another korean artist that goes by MAD is going to be okay. I'm saving the rest of his porn that I haven't grabbed yet.
Warning for those that don't care fore the stuff. His art is mostly BBW. There's some BHM as well.
Oh so that's what happened to Ero Doll and Metal Owl.
They were my favorite artists. ;_;
I had the fortune of running tumblone on his blog before he nuked it. Luck of the ... doll?
>Didn't even know this guy existed until today
>Didn't even know I needed this in my /e/, /h/ folder
>go to his Pixiv
holy shit this can't be real, why? WHY?!!!!!!!
please tell me you have more OP?
>be leader of best country in the world
>border shittier, knock-off version of your glorious country
>commission lots of porn from artists in shitland because people in best country don't know how to draw
>was there a law against that or something?
>whatever, let party officials handle it
>shitland bans porn
>want to start nuclear war
>realise you sold the nukes for more porn years ago
Probably for the best. These pics are disgusting and contribute to the overall moral decay of society. There's really no valid reason to let these "artists" continue creating smut. All it does is gave sad rejected members of society an excuse to wallow in their own waste and not contribute anything. 100 years from now anime and specifically hentai will be proven to significantly slow mental and social development and will be illegal in all civilized countries
I hope you're a blue collar and wage slave and one day the thing you love doing after a long hard day of work gets taken away from you because it is "immoral a waste and not a contributor to society"
you just as bad as the communist
We didn't so much as "influence" them as we did "introduce them to our culture at the time and they just sorta took off with it." Mind you when the US had their biggest stakes in SK was back during the fifties...and during that time the US was like ten times as conservative as it is now.
>My number one favorite artist
This has hit me harder than anything else in forever. This was his best work so far:
Every single one of his pieces were amazing.
OP here. Got sidetracked, if the thread dies i'll remake it and post all the stuff i've been managing to salvage from my own personal collection, sadpanda, tumblr reblogs, wayback machine and various other sources. I'm trying to get the collection as complete as possible but if anyone has some of the more recent stuff from this year that was posted on his Pixiv i'm missing everything after April 2015.
Metal Owl is still active and lives in Japan, not Korea.
you sure put a lot of effort into a lame troll there.
also, if anyone is interested, this is his statement from pixiv
Recently my country's NSFW artists have been arrested several times by police.
I think it's dangerous to me keeping this account.(pixiv,tumblr,patreon)
So I decide to seclude myself from this work.
When Manga work is over, I'll have my self-development time.
and I'll come again with another nickname someday.
I might have some recent stuff but I haven't labelled them or organised them in any way. Might post it in a day or so when I have access to my computer. Didn't he also have an hentai-foundry account where he posted uncensored works? Or was that someone else?
Makes me worried something similar could happen in Japan. If SK successfully shuts down all adult artists, it'll be held up as proof that it can be done. I'm pretty sure the Japanese porn industry is much larger and more resilient, but the government loves to ratchet up censorship and crack down on immoral manga.
Koreans are discriminated against but since a lot of them can pass as Japanese, and since most of the nips who complain online don't air their grievances in public, it usually doesn't come up. At least not in metropolitan areas.
Also it seems like if you're Korean and you draw smut then you can find some camaraderie in other smut peddlers, no matter the ethnicity.
Through dick, unity.
They're probably not going to deal with their mosaic problem anytime soon. Those laws pretty much existed before the war in one form or another. Especially since no politician wants to be the "porn" guy/girl. But Japanese adult artists managed to cut out a pretty deep foothold for themselves in Japan's cultural and economic industry. Its very existence has proven beneficial to the official works they parody. There's just so many of them, man and woman, and they pull in such large numbers that killing it could damage the industry as a whole.
Korea on the other hand has had far more stringent laws in place. Couple that with very few adult artists and a government consisting of moral blowhards and Korean adult artists have it worse. Though the laws were poorly enforced for a period after SK established its democracy they doubled down hard on porn relatively recently, (people point to Lee Myung-bak's presidency as the resurgence for these laws), and it's possible that the minuscule impact adult Korean artists had on the industry made the decision all the easier. Honestly it seems like Korean adult artists have only started cropping up recently. The oldest I can remember that was effected by Korea's recent bullshit was CousinAnon. And he made his appearance around 2010-2011, not that long ago. Unfortunately it seems like a "too little, too late" situation for Korean porn artists, and unless there's another movement similar to the June Democracy Uprising it's only going to get worse for them.
Don't give up hope lads. He is contracted to release his newest manga so it will come out eventually. It should be around two months or so until he's finished. Last I remembered, he is about halfway done with it.
So being a porn artist is illegal in SK, but 8 year old girls in microbikinis and jiggling tits everywhere in Korean MMORPGs like Blade and Soul and Tera are perfectly fine?
The fuck kind of logic goes through these peoples heads? 90% naked underage girls = O.K., artists profiting off of drawing what they love (happens to be erotic) = Banned 4ever. Fucking hell.
Fun fact: The current president of South Korea is the "democratically elected" daughter of one of their military dictators. Back after a ferry capsized and killed a couple hundred schoolkids they responded to mourners in the capital by sending in the riot police with fire hoses against grieving parents.
If we're going to post a south korean's art anywhere, for now let's make a different name for them in case SK is investigating to see if they're still posting content anywhere. Then, we can change the name back to the right one if we hear the artist left SK.
Don't wanna get anyone arrested, now.
What have I begun? I don't want to upload all this
Also, 50/50 chance this is in reverse order. Blame tumblone if it is.
That's it. He can be pretty clean when he wants to, but I say he pulls off the messy sketchy style far better than metalowl.
Orushibu isn't korean right? I'd hate to see his stuff go too. Not enough artists doing milfy thick women.
Is that... Naoto? He seems to like him (callling reverse traps boys is my fetish - I require a convoluted narrative to get off).
Yep, Naoto is his absolute favorite character to draw and by god do I love it. He really draws her well and its way sexier knowing that she is hiding thick body underneath her clothes.
While some may have a problem with the way he draws males (they're usually fat and old) I love it for the raunchiness it adds.
I never really agreed with that map. Ireland is green because we practically have no porn laws other than the usual "over 18" stuff. But I don't doubt for a second that loli would get you insta-thrown in jail.
People don't understand something realy, really important:
Nearly all of east asia is extremely socially authoritarian-conservative. This includes many of the "free" capitalist societies and democracies that the US supports in the region such as Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, etc. as well as socialist and Communist regimes such as China, Vietnam and North Korea.
Social conservatism mixed with authoritarian rule = moral policing at the government and community levels.
Couldn't he have
I don't know, put all of his work into a .rar file or something
I mean what is he going to do now that he can no longer make any porn? Is he going to swtich jobs or something?
>"Who are you, that do not know your history?"
He doesn't have a twitter and he wiped his tumblr and pixiv account. He is however occasionally active on Picarto in some chatrooms. I saw him about a week ago chatting it up in Leslyzerosix's channel (a fellow Korean artist).
Creating and/or distributing pornography is what is illegal. Viewing it technically is not, though I'm sure the SK government is trying hard to make that illegal as well. Their web blocks point to that being their intention.
Still, though there are web blocks in place I'm sure people are finding ways around them. Remember the law has been in place for quite some time but it has never really stemmed the flow of Korean translated hentai. And a lot of it may not be aimed at SK residents alone. There are a shitload of South Koreans living in Japan and other places abroad that don't have to deal with the SK government's bullshit and just want to fap.
what if he sends his work to a contact in the free west via an encrypted connection - or, fuck it, an encrypted archive on a thumbdrive - and this contact then distributes his work and sends any money back marked as "IT support payments"?
You know what would really get under South Korea's skin? If North Korea 180'd and became a fast-growing society with guaranteed rights and liberties.
That would really piss South Korea off.
Maaan first my favorite game, then my favorite band, and now my favorite damn artist.
Is there a version without the <Sample> text?
>Couldn't he have I don't know, put all of his work into a .rar file or something
Doing this shows compliance with the law. If the cops show up he can prove that he understands and has done all he can to remove it. This protects him if they arrest him since a lawyer can easily get him back out. If he tries to save it or upload it somewhere discrete and the cops find out hes super fucked as it just proves that he is actively disobeying the law.
Its because they are what America used to be. Very private. What you do in your own home is your business alone. So long as it does not affect anyone else no one has any business trying to tell you what to do.
Now if what ever you are doing starts bothering others somehow they will shitcan your ass hard.
The problem is one of science. Its been proven that if people have an outlet to what ever is socially unwanted they will use that outlet rather than do anything risky.
The problem lies in the fact that no one wants accept this fact. No one wants to "enable" shit or feel like they "lost." There was some study or other that showed that careful access to drawn loli porn significantly lowered the urges of pedophiles. It gave them a way out. A way to address their urges and move past. Who would support that though? It would be political suicide to say anything remotely close to that.
>folder's 1.98 GB and growing
>started saving shit 5 hours ago
You niggers better appreciate this when it's done.
>Are there still no tools for automatically saving stuff from pixiv?
Yes but i'm reluctant to link it here because if it gets too popular and starts costing Pixiv a fortune in bandwidth they may go the DA route and turn saving files into a fucking hassle.
For a second I was really worried that this guy and Metal Owl were the same person, but apparently their styles are just REALLY similar.
Regardless, I know that "artist I liked closed and purged their accounts" feel and I wish him (and you) the best.
how would they prove he was the artist? drag him into court and make him draw something then get a bunch of art experts in to say "yes, the way he draws nipples is the same as in this illegal artwork! book him, Dano, Hentai One!"
Late as fuck but Star Wars Galaxies, before SOE shafted it for years, and Slice the Cake.
Like, anyone got any good news articles summarizing this South Korean crackdown, specifically as it applies to porn artists?
I want to share it on Tumblr because, as much as we laugh on there at folks who cry MUH CENSORSHIP at criticism surrounding the culture of porn-art, this is actual legit-censorship, and I know there's enough of a shocking amount of overlap between the "xenophile pervert" and "social justice" sides of Tumblr to get this out...
Eh, there is some old bad blood but economic, diplomatic and cultural relationships for a couple decades warmed things up a little. It's possible for a korean to live very well in Japan and other way arround. Infact a lot of young koreans are drawn towards Japan, and young japanese towards Korea.
Now chinese are another question. The chinese communities in Japan have, for ome, been here for over 150 years. None of them speak chinese or have ever been to China. None of them has japanese citizenship,even with marriage, etc.

That's not precise. Zeus transformed into a bull and fucked her, then she got transformed into a cow.
And wait till you read the myth of how the minotaur was conceived. The minoan king's wife had a fetish for a bull, so she had daedalus (the one and only) to build her a fake wooden cow, wherein she was restrained before the bull was brought in to fuck her.
Then they had Daedalus build the labyrinth, too. The moral of the story is that Daedalus was a really popular inventor and that pervertion pays.
