Artists who get popular on Tumblr improve far less than anyone else I've ever seen. After all, why put effort into improving or studying when you have thousands of followers willing to harass anyone who tells your art is less than perfect?
Anyways, what about them makes it so easy to pick out "tumblr artists" when browsing the internet? I find myself spotting them frequently whether I want to or not.
Don't know it began, but it's pretty obvious the "tumblr" style is just being hipsters toward the Anime style.
"different is better" is the mindset.
>Can it be traced back to any specific propagators?
You want to insult the original dumblr fags for making hideous shit, aren't you?
Eh, that makes me think, when I began drawing, I was trying to replicate Araki's Jojo's style and really liked how it looked, must have kept that for two good years. It's when I began trying to replicate's Murata's faces that it slowly disappeared.
Now that I look at it again I can say some of these were ugly as sin.
Are there any people that actually pull off the "tumblr style" well?
As in they have a good grasp of fundamentals, and the resulting artwork looks good while still conforming to the hallmarks of the style?
at least when you refine an anime style you get something that looks nice. the whole point of tumblr's style is to leave it as simple-looking as possible. to put as little effort into your work so you can crank out shitty [insert popular cartoon here] fanart for self-validating notes.
I always thought this was Tumblr style? Or maybe it's just slowly shifted into this being the popular style on Tumblr because of Adventure Time alumni.
> Red triangle noses
> :U lips
> Round teeth
> Tube arms and legs
> Sausage fingers with no joints
> Big round red cheeks
This type of art to me almost seems to be aping the simplistic charm of Kate Beaton while incorporating certain style elements very popular in animation right now (Specifically, CalArts style animation).
Hell, even Rebecca Sugar's art style degraded into generic work just to fit within the medium of animation.
I'm so glad someone else has noticed this.
There is a group of people who draw in this squash and stretch wide eyed style. Obviously aping someone else Yes, they're mostly on tumblr but they're also on Deviantart and have been there for years.
One of the more popular ones is this Vivziepop.
If you go to their page vivzmind.deviantart.com/ and start clicking on their friends you will notice a lot of them have the same style (their profile icons will be a dead giveaway) mostly emo shit or fur shit or a combination of both.
It's been killing me as to where they all got it from because I've used that site for years and noticed it get more and more and more popular and copied.
I'm starting to suspect this as well. And it's trickled down into Tumblr and Deviantart.
>It's been killing me as to where they all got it from
Jhonen Vasquez/Invader ZIM started it. But I wouldn't say that style is Tumblr, Vivz's work reminds me of deviantART.
> Lots of sharp edges
> Pointy fingers
> No real sense of line of action, the pose is going all over the place like a constellation.
> Poses are skewed because the artist doesn't understand stretch and squash
> Overly stylistic (And again, usually to the realm of being very very very pointy)
> Tons of gradients
> Lots and lots and lots and lots of colors in a single scheme.
Sparkle furshit and all that.
Ironically, almost every piece of SU fanart looks better than the show itself, even without changing the design that much. Even Alexandrite looks better in fanart.
Although I guess that's what happens when your bar is already so low: Any drawing will be an improvement. Kind of the same with Adventure Time fanart.
>If you go to their page and start clicking on their friends you will notice a lot of them have the same style
Shit man. You weren't lying. It's kind of scary how their art all looks alike with very small deviations.
We're talking in the realm of western TV animation you daft autistic fuck. Unless you think this shit looks different, in which case, I applaud you for being able to type while blind.
The CalArts assumption isn't too far off.
A lot of the people who came out of CalArts use that lanky big head big eye style because it's easy to animate with. It grew in popularity as more and more show runners and artists are from there or aped the style.
That Vivziepop girl is a good example because as to why more animators in tv use the style because you can squash and stretch and cheat animate to get results the uninitiated would notice.
>Jhonen Vasquez/Invader ZIM
I think he was one of the first people to inspire it but there are many more that are responsible for it being what it is now. It's hard to blame one person though.
>went to page
>clicked icons at random
Son of a bitch this is amazing
at it's core, it's animal crossing meets scott pilgrim. those are the main influences, but over time, they picked up rendering techniques from the gorillaz, and the stock expressions and poses from cal arts. top it all off with insane political correctness, and you get one of the most soulless styles in the history of art.
This artist put no effort or brainpower into redrawing this panel. The original is attractive because the shapes of the eyes, mouths, and noses (or no noses) work well together, creating a pleasing cartoon image. The tumblr artist just copied over it and inserted the most generic tumblr presets they could come up with without considering the balance of the shapes.
How the hell does he even comes with all those shits.
I felt like discovering a whole new world after seeing all his works. They're all fucking crazy.
Idk op with actually studying anatomy properly for sometime and not trying to be anime but different or didney but different you can pull off an art style more tumblrisque at least imo
Also notice how Tumblr style means
>drawing girls only
I dont really remember anyone nowadays drawing men - characters "with style". Except some fantasy Card Games who should draw knights or some shit.
Everybody drawing cute girls or waifus. Im sick of that and im not even a homo (writing this because every time i bring this some retard starts "LMAO IF YOU DRAW ANYTHING OTHER THAN GIRLS YOU GAY XDDD")
Wrong. Tumblr style has lots of guys, they just happen to be cute gays or betas/nerds/skinny lanky dudes/whatever the fuck ever is opposite of 70's typical manly.
Tumblr style can still be good as long as you incorporate basic art foundation elements and design. Just like any style.
Look at Alex Toth for example: His work was great, but the instant they had to use different tools for animation and he lost all the inked weight to his lineart, it looked like shit. Small changes make a big difference.
I guess if you post your work we could tell you what looks tumblr-ish about it. But if you already know, can't you just make an effort to draw those areas in a different way? Look at other styles you like as inspiration if you need to.
You are wrong. tumbr style girls and gays are basically the same shit.
>is opposite of 70's typical manly.
dont even know what you trying to say here
>ignoring 80s, 90s and 10s mens style/fashion/manliness.
> they just happen to be cute gays or betas
that's basically the "dumb blonde sexy doll with huge tits" version made by girls.
It does not count as "Drawing Men With Style or Giving the Same Character Design Care as When You Drawing Waifus/Girl Ocs"
eventually you learn to just ignore those faggots. They are incredibly insecure and more likely than not incredibly jealous. Just filter out the legit critiques from the annoying bullshit on ic.
And good god is there a lot of bullshit.
Pigeon is a legit god among men and women.
It's because SU is always so ridiculously off-model.
Everyone besides maybe a handful of side characters had 60% of their frames off-model and shitty looking, at least during the first season.
I think it's because they had a low budget to start out, but as it's getting more popular, they're putting more time in (and the animators are improving.)
Sorry key points like:
>Had to redesign
>To fit animation
Weren't enough clues to tell you I was talking about western TV animation. Maybe go back to school to study comprehension and come back and you'll struggle less with reading 4chan posts.
Loish is actually a pro animator/storyboarder and her cartoon style is 95% renaissance disney, 5% 90's anime.
Putting her in the same bag as tumblrtards is like putting Basquiat with street taggers.
As a dA oldfag I'm ashamed to say it did originate in deviantart. There was a bunch of Phobsfags who latched on her because lol cute yaoi nazis and tried to imitate her by completely misunderstanding her body-language exaggerations and key-featuring characters. These people weren't noticed in dA because being noticed in dA is a miracle but little after pro-ana/mia blogs got banned and tumblr stopped being "problematic" many of these invisibles grew distant because of the recent lack of yaoi nazis (yaoi mongols aren't ok because one is a bear and big, manly men are "threatening") plus the changes to deviantart's frontpage were making it harder to cheat your way into the day's most popular, so they migrated into easier pastures where they could explode in popularity by bandwaggoning slash fiction and fanart of shit like Team Fortress and Scott Pilgrim. They even latched on Penny Arcade for a while but were scared off by dickwolves. Style remenants are still there tho.
So yes, "tumblr style" started as pretty much a bunch of people failing to understand the basic techniques of russian cartooning, american animation and three-panel strips, but mashing it all together anyway because they're mad desperate for attention, any attention. Shamefuly it's become a movement to the aesthetic detriment of art history.
I've noticed it, and as much as I don't like the look of it and avoid art from people who draw it, why should I care? Because they're making money? If their aspirations end at drawing stuff they like for patreon money, good for them. They're not affecting me, the part of the industry I'm in or the art I like in the slightest.
Phobs is pretty much a modern mixture of Boris Efimov and Ivan Bilibin with some Andreas Deja fangirling.
What differentiates russian cartooning from tumblr style is that russians down shy away from representing people's most prominent features without the need to downplay or frame them like american cartoonists, or make it an "ugly is beautiful" statement like tumblrtards. You just have a fuckhuge nose, it's cool!
You are talking so much out of your ass it's not even funny anymore. Andreas Deja fangirling? Are you fucking serious? Dude was a good animator, don't get me wrong, but he has NEVER established a recognizable style of his own, let alone one that would have "fangirls" trying to copy it.
No one who draws in "Tumblr style" has ever heard of those russian faggots either. What /ic/ calls Tumblr style is completely derived of CalArts painting techniques and the Disney style that Glen Keane established.
You get fixated on improving so much you actually forget to have fun. When you are improved through diligent studying you have already lost an important portion of your creative brain. Art, of all things, shouldn't be a profession.
>Art, of all things, shouldn't be a profession.
Yeah, I'm sure you would be totally fine with never again watching a movie, a tv show, playing a video game, reading a graphic novel, having your children watch a cartoon or read a children book or anything else that requires professional artists.. You fucking braindead retard.
you are the retard if you think none of those will happen again, you will be surprised when people actually willing to do these things fucking do them instead of desk monkeys
it's like talking to a brick wall
I watched a bit of the show because I can't deconstruct and criticize a show without at least watching it. The characters scale changes constantly. Short characters randomly change size. I've seen fans of the show complain about some of the storyboard artists changing character's designs and it being noticeable.
Well, shit. Maybe we should change the sticky. The tumblr approach clearly seems to wield far superior and more appealing resultst than our Loomis - Vilppu - Hampton approach.
This "style" triggers me so much. They can't keep getting away with making this garbage popular.
In all seriousness, do you have some kind of mental retardation? That's my whole point. There is a market for these entertainment product, hence there are professionals being paid to do them. Which means the artists who will be hired to work on these projects will be paid for their work and thus art becomes..... their profession.
No, I'm pretty sure I comprehend what you were trying to say, it's just really, REALLY stupid. You said art shouldn't be a profession and you think all the work that is currently done by professional artists would still be continued to be done by what I assume would be hobbyists who do it purely out of a love and passion for art, or some equally retarded, romantic shit you probably believe in.
What you fail to understand is that the moment someone is really good at something, others will pay them to do it. Hence art as a profession will always exist as long as there are people who want to pay artists money do to what they do. As long as there is a demand, there will be a profession that fulfills that demand. This is something any child understand but apparently it's too much for you to comprehend.
How are these even popular? That one picture the hands are literally flat on the table and I doubt it's on purpose. I just. They're all so bad and there's tons of actually good people struggling to get notice on that pos site. The one in the bottom left is babby's first animoo drawing.
Not really. They're just a special style and as such not everyone like them.
> waah too generic
> waaah too special
> waah too realistic
You could say the same shit for pretty much every styles ever.
This. Part of each of the characters whole "hurr I died but not really, just retreated into muh jem" bit was them standardizing their models. Amethyst lost her wonky hanging shoulder strap. Pearl normalized in height, and got a bow that was much more fun to animate than her weird see through skirt, Garnet is already sort of hard to optimize so they left her how she is now.
The regeneration thing was a canon way for the designers to say "wow are interns really suck dick. Maybe we she make these designs even easier to animate."
"Flat Hands" is by Zamii: a tumblr artist who got popular by literally spamming fanart nonstop for 2 years. She was pretty well-known between 2012-2014 because she shit out a dozen doodles for every homestuck update. (Look in her archives- they were drawn so quickly they literally look like scribbles.)
Now she runs a webcomic that's even more poorly drawn than her art from 2012.
The lower left was by an artist who managed to get their comic on Hiveworks. The rest is self-explanatory.
Yeah really. Her faces are shit. It's clearly a stylistic choice on her part but that doesn't deter me from called it shit. Obviously it's something I don't like. I like just about everything else about her work though. Fuck off, defense force.
She's pretty much one of the few artists ever that manages to use well those themes to make them into great works, fuck off and come back when you get 1/10th of her skills.
> gets called defense force for saying her faces aren't shit
I have as much right for defending because I like them as you have for calling them shit because you don't, retard.
>She's pretty much one of the few artists ever that manages to use well those themes to make them into great works
Does being a fanboy completely scramble your brains or something? Using something in its most generic and superficial way does not constitute originality or "great work". This shit has been so overused in Japan over the past decade that it's became even worse of a clichè than it used to be.
>come back when you get 1/10th of her skills.
Or maybe you should comeback when you aren't such an weeb faggot obsessing over an artist as if they are god when the best thing about their work is their rendering.
See also: Vert-is-Ninja (Hanna Is Not a Boy's Name) who influenced a lot of the "youneek tumblr kids" that flocked to tumblr to post homestuck fanart.
I think Homestuck and its fan art was probably a HUGE influence on tumblr style, it's just that now the fandom has moved on to other things.
She's gotten worse over time and is proud of it
The first one is really cute and charming, and it just get's progressively worse.
What is with people's obsession with making EVERYTHING so fucking shiny? I'm seeing it a lot from artists linked in this thread, and I really don't get it.
A lot of this art would look better if they just toned the shiny,blushy elbow/nose/kneecaps shit down. Where did that even come from? I understand that Anime/cartoons/comics employ blushing to good effect, but I have never seen shininess like this, not even in the most laughable Shojo.
tumblr (and anime as well) are nearly useless terms for trying to group together something as a style. they're like salsa or salad, something with a whole bunch of different parts mixed together in a bowl and each artist is like a bite of that. tumblr salsa (or anime salad) usually taste terrible because you're putting too much shit into the same bowl and then complaining when you get a mouth full of tastes you don't enjoy.
it's why you'll get multiple people who hate on "tumblr style" but then argue with each other over where the influence came from. they don't realize that they're just arguing over their specific stylistic pet peeves under a catchall umbrella that ultimately means nothing beyond being some imaginary unified front for them to oppose, just like reddit, just like feminists, just like MRA's, just like "PC" culture, just like 4chan itself
It wasn't even for any of the reasons mentioned above. It was because she drew gems. Fucking cartoons for a kid's show.
I understand hating on someone's work. I love ranting about shit. But Tumblr goes the extra mile and stalks people they disagree with every waking moment of the day.
Imagine being that buttmad. Just. Imagine.
No.... it's really obvious when an art style comes from a tumblr user/is tumblr inspired. There's something about all of them that they have in common that causes people to recognize it. Just like you can recognize if a style is "anime" despite the very many styles anime can have.
i feel design language is too organized/planned of a concept, usually used in reference to product design/architecture, more akin to a style guide for a specific work/series
at no point did i say or even imply that it isn't obvious when something is anime or from/inspired by tumblr, merely that those terms are too broad to be of much use beyond "i'm gonna oversimplify a concept for the sake of hating a thing"
You can't even read worth a shit and are giving out classes now?
Phobs was influenced by Efimov and Disney, early post-anorexia Tumblr was influenced by Phobs. And CalArts hasn't always been Glen Keane's turf, Keane's construction method had gone out of fashion until Tangled's marketing campaign came out and people at CalArts were trying to rip off Miyazaki at the time.
"Tumblr style" does not come from any sort of professional instruction, it comes from the internet and the minds of fucked up people.
Loomis is a meme.
Loomis is shit.
Loomis won't get you anywhere.
/ic/s fixation on Loomis is the most successful act of trolling ever at 4chan.
If you really want to get better replace him with Bridgman, or even better, with actual instruction on design, narrative and composition because no one ever wants to see your anal anatomy "studies" and you'll never make it anywhere if you continue telling yourself that you need to master "the fundamentals" before actually creating shit.
And no one would call him a tagger after Mary Boone took him in. Same way no one would call Loish a tumblrtard.
Nobody that doesn't suffer from intense Dunning-Kruger.
She has great rendering tho. And it's very attractive and has given her relevance and success.
What has your anal devotion to Loomis given you? Every tumblrtard in this threat is more relevant to art history than you and that stings. You could take it to the drawing board and actually start striving for relevance but that would require putting down your ego and shutting the fuck up.
D/ic/ks never get anywhere because humility is absolutely necessary for improovement.
>Loomis is a meme.
I've been going to life drawing sessions organised by the college of art in my city for several months, it belongs to one of the best universities in the UK. I spoke to many art students including graduates/undergraduate and name dropped /ic/'s favourite books like Loomis and Hampton; so far only 2 people have even heard about Loomis.
While I wouldn't say art school is a standard for quality skill measurement, but the fact that formal education don't even consider /ic/'s as study material then it must be a meme. Some of these people are actually quite good despite having learned their methods elsewhere, so the bottom line is - study smart and don't think Loomis is everything.
>i feel design language is too organized/planned of a concept, usually used in reference to product design/architecture, more akin to a style guide for a specific work/series
Yes, it's structured so that art from many different artists looks like it belongs within the company style or narrative.
If you haven't noticed tumblr is pretty hardcore cult-ish. Them having a design language and people being desperate to look like they belong aren't hard to notice.
>If you haven't noticed tumblr is pretty hardcore cult-ish.
Do people who post this bullshit really believe the sludge thats coming out of their mouths? Tumblr is just a place to make a blog, it's like calling wordpress or blogger a cult-like community, theres so much different shit posted on all these sites, you're as dumb as the fuckheads who think 4chan = /b/.
As for the "tumblr" style, it's just the current contemporary cartoon design, posted everywhere including da and shit like that. Similar to why pop music all have a similar sound if you look for it, people just got good at making a visually appealing design for the unwashed masses.
Idk m8 I thought this too. But everyone I've started following seems to be circle jerking each others polished turds for likes. A lot of them have degenerated into cutesy anime shits.
Oh definitely agree
It bothers me when artists like Phobs (or Noelle Stevenson) get criticized for having a 'Tumblr' art style with the implication that their artstyle is derivative. They aren't derivative. They are the wellspring of the aesthetic, other people purposefully aped the and it just took off from there.
There was a time when Phobs really had a unique art style and it was part of why they were so popular. Their popularity led to them no longer being distinct.
I don't like Noelle Stevenson's artwork that much but for a moment in time the artstyle was uniquely hers, or at least the aesthetic sensibilities weren't very popular. And then people opted to emulate the artstyle that she and Kate Beaton (similarish) had put forth.
>Tumblr is just a place to make a blog
>you're as dumb as the fuckheads who think 4chan = /b/
You realize that the same way 4chan is a site with boards and smaller communities inside those boards that tumblr is no different.
If you check out the beginner thread then you'll see a lot of new artists with a very samey look and feel. Even an amateur can see Hampton, Loomis, Bridgman, etc studies. We're all starting at the same place but when you pop into the art style thread you can see that we all want to go in very different directions.
On Tumblr there are the same little communities with maybe less structure since they're bound by hashtags instead of boards. The beginners have that same look and feel and you can pick out the image tutorials they follow but the difference is that there are large communities that all have the same or very similar destinations.
The style is popular, its variations are so incestuous and when you combine that with a relatively low skill ceiling it's easy for a whole site to become known for one "style"
>tfw you like western cartoony shit too (minus the popular shit)
how do I not become tumblr
it's one of my fears
my plan is to master realism first but still it kind of irks me whenever I draw some cartoon for fun
That style isn't what I'd call tumblr style, though unfortunately that artist's skills somehow got a lot worse over time. Their older stuff used to be alright, nothing astounding, but after a while it seems like they started exaggerating shapes too much and somehow they lost their style.
>She has great rendering tho.
That's what I said? What is with faggots like you? Good rendering is what leads to mainstream success. Everyone knows that. Draftsman generally don't get nearly as much mainstream recognition even though their drawings are always more solid. I'm acknowledging Pigeon's weaknesses while you want to pretend they don't exist. Fuck off. You're a fanboy. It's possible to like someone's work while without sucking them off. You should look into it.
> only rendering
You don't even fucking know what you're talking about Drawing something like this >>2358214 takes as much drawings skills as you can get, don't you dare compare it to people like Kr0n and Sakimichan who just lazily draw faces and busts of popular characters with the same usual mainstream rendering.
> implying I care about that and doesn't just appreciate her skills for what they are
Seems like approving of her drawings will kill you on the other hand considering how defensive you are.
I find that, for some reason, I can (almost) ALWAYS spot art that was drawn by a girl. Why is this? I won't even have to look at their profile, I just instinctively KNOW. Subject matter might be a part of it, but I can point out female art even if they're drawing non female subject matter. Anyone else feel this way?
In amateur communities, absolutely.
In more professional shit, it's more blurry.
They have a favorite color palette they rarely deviate from along with subject matter that just screams I'm a girl.
Also I think female artists tend to put bits of themselves in their drawings. Either real or idealized traits.
But yeah I have the same thing I can always tell if the artist is female
What do you guys consider the "deep end" of the tumblr artist pool?
the real funny bit is that the 2015 census of traffic flow on tumblr confirmed that 75% of its user base is white Caucasian. meaning that this is just a big old "im not racist, see seeeeee!!" party.
It makes me so fucking annoyed when they start firing off these dumb neologisms all in succession as if they're normal terms everyone is familiar with. I pray to God, Zeus, Buddha, and anyone else I never have to come face to face with someone like this. So far I've been lucky.
Thanks fuck that it's contaminated excluse to that account.
Because it's not Glen Keane. He doesn't do that flat bold color gauche style. I'd say it's more Mary Blair and Eyvind Earle-ish, along with the more recent Disney visdev artists who are replicating similar looks in digital. Dunno which artists influenced calarts kids to push their shape designs so grotesquely though.
I think every tumblr artist is an evolved form of a weeaboo
instead of japan, they praise lgbt shit like it's the best thing ever
actual homos (like one of my friends) hate tumblrfags in reality though
Eh, I go to a real legit life drawing class and they have Loomis in the book collection there, like a really old edition, I'd be surprised if a professional illustrator hadn't at least heard of him.
I'm not a Loomis fan at all btw, Harold Speed is my waifu.
Same. I can usually tell if it's a guy or girl. Some of that us chalked up to tone and subject (girls like pretty, guys like power, etc). If I'm wrong, I'm not usually surprised either, since the art seems it could go either way.
Except for mooncalfe on da. I was so sure he was a chick, that I had a hard time calling him a 'him'. Turns out he is actually a she. Went public as trans recently. Oddly enough, ever since seeing that, I feel I can spot the fake tumblrina trans this way too.
Wtf is with that? It's as baffling as it is fascinating.
I wish I could see the looks on people's faces when the guy shows them his art.
Pic related is by a female artist.
If you didn't self-insert at one point you're a filthy liar anon
>my plan is to master realism first
First of all, you never master realism. Ever.
And you don't learn to stylize by drawing realism, you learn to stylize by understanding construction and studying design.
Stylization is not an accident, it's a language.
>transmasc and demiboy, lithonomathic asexual
>genderfluid aroflux polysexual
Oh fuck me every part of my body wants to believe this is parody but deep down I know it's not.
Nigger this isn't about Pigeon, it' about you and /ic/ in general.
If your "weaknesses" don't impede your success, they don't exist, they don't matter. You're only putting a spotlight there because it' a convenient excuse as why you're not trying yourself, "oh I need to be better than X or Y before I start painting seriously", no you fucking don't, you're preventing your succes by preventing yourelf from failing, all because your ego is more important to you than art is.
All the people who made it out of this cesspool of failure realized /ic/ is 100% critique, 0% art and that gets you nowhere.
With tumblr, it is really hard to tell. The person who drew that pic got pushed off of that site though
Backlash from a lot of people & places due to the drawings
>le draw women unattractive meme
this is why tumblrshits have such a problem with anime, they are salty they cant draw attractive women so instead of getting good at stylization and accentuation of attractive features they draw obese hamplanets with giant clown noses.
Got hit with the tumblr stick
>q. Why are the girls tumblr draws always so fucking fat?
a. because in art school they make you do studies of fat women, because its easier to learn the "curves" of the body and gestures on curvy people. Unfortunately tumblr was never able to make it past that point and go on to learn actual anatomy, so they draw fat women because its simple and the more fat there is on the body, the less actual bone structure (real anatomy) is shown. Its eaasier for them to draw a series of curves rather than actually draw a human being.
welcome to her world, anon
This. They're being "progressive" by portraying unhealthy, unaesthetic landwhales in "positive" roles. How many of these people have actually attended a single life drawing session? Probably not many, mi famille.
I have my reasons.
Does this look tumblr, or are my eyes just blinded by hate?
>simmering with so much rage you can't tell the difference between typical furry DA shit and Tumblr shit
>undermeme, homesuck, Steven jewniverse and anime fan art
>extra diversification of every character drawn as a black muslim trans woman of a made up sexuality
>all done in that same homogeneous tumblr style
Literal concentrated tumblr. God, I want to be okay with trans people because of my libertarian social ideals but they are so universally garbage.
trans people are literally mentally ill. They are all fucked in the head and there is no way to logically deal with them.
I use to be pretty liberal till I went to college. Fucking christ I lost all faith in humanity during those years.
That person is just some white girl that's fucked in the head
She has a tumblr too da zo.
Supposedly a Gengar she drew.
I wanted to talk about Phobs, Phobsfags and the start of Yaoi-ish-Tumblr-Feminine-Boy-Faces for such a long time.
This thread is delicious. I love to read it.
thank you...thank you for everything. I will make some coffee and re-read your post
>still pull commissioners and patreon funding pretty easily.
It's their parents.
Same with Diaz and MacIntosh and Sarkeesian (funded by MacIntosh, funded by his rich dad), etc.
When they're left to their own means they end like Dobby.
You don't know the half of it. Nowadays being a gay man who actually likes being gay is opression and mysoginy and you better check your non-drama queen privilege.
I'm the youngest dude in my massive extended family. None of my bros, cousins, uncles, parents or granpas/uncles had to deal with this kind of hostility in college and they lived through first-wave femminism, segregation and vietnam. But this shit is 100% business now and these numbskulls are paying for those useless degrees that require no investment from the school other than keeping the bipolar dyke in charge of the program from killing herself because penises exist.
My class' models were a pixie 4'11 40 pounds turbofit girl and a guy from the football team.
My room-mates' were a 180 pounds housewife with acute acne and a skinny guy with a permanent erection.
I learnt a lot about bone landmarks and vascularity. He learnt to draw dicks in perspective.
>actual homos (like one of my friends) hate tumblrfags in reality though
Can confirm. Im a homo cocksucker (not a bad thing because i dont think that cocks are bad...in fact..they are awesome) and i fucking hate tumblr and its LGBT XDD bullshit.
However according tumblr - every Gay Who Watched Porn is misogynist.
Picrelated is one of new trendy things about "why its a big NO to accept gay porn!!!".
so i don't think being "homosexual" is "being tumblr".
Have in mind he draws red noses because he's russian and they're alwas
Both extremely likely reasons to have a red nose. Then tumblr copied that shit and memed it harder than pepe.
Only if you're confused/distressed/otherwise fucked up in the headl. Because they don't care about the actual act of liking buttfuck/being buttfucked, they want the pity and excuse for misbehavior.
And of course saying "no" to a woman is rape.
I so wanted to punch this woman's smug eyebrows off when I read this.
There is no "woman" or "feminine" in sane homosexual relationships, keep your seme/uke crap in your yaoi fanfic folder and drag your saggy tits off gay business.
>There is no "woman" or "feminine" in sane homosexual relationships, keep your seme/uke crap in your yaoi fanfic folder
yeah pretty much
It's hilarious how that cunt being actually homophobic saying stereotype "lel one of them is like a GUURL xDD".
I hate tumblr so much. So as many other gays.
Shame, ain't it? An Anon told me it was because they're "collectible." With all due respect of that guy, I don't understand the logic. Why would people wanna collect those designs? And what is stopping other people from making the SAME EXACT DESIGN for nothing at all?
Why not draw fanart of characters/people who are ALREADY trans, black, fat, ect??
SJWs have a habit of taking popular shit and slapping their super special labels on it and pissing off other fans. But why not work with what they already have?
Better yet, why not make things they want themselves? They could have it all, anon. THEY COULD HAVE EVERYTHING THEY WANT .
theres this and then theres the sjw revolt going on ive heard,
how will does the future of this site look?
its repulsive how they want these unrepresented people to be seen as people but summarize themselves by their labels
and you cant criticize or youre automatically "cis white scum"
I tried this out on FA, the adopts thing.
Just do a little research to find out what sells best (it's furry feminine shotas), put your adopt(s) up, and watch the shekels roll in.
Easiest $80 I've ever made
>Also, how big or popular do you have to be until sjws start harrassing you?
You don't need to be famous at all. They're not jealous like /ic/, they're just legitimate mentally ill.
All you need to do is voice and stand by conservative opinions and they'll be sending death threats to your mom in no time.
His art is actually pretty cute and serviceable for what it's made, which is webcomic strips.
All the faggots trying to turn it into some high class illustation thing are what ruined rednose and exaggerated expressions for everyone forever.
>Pigeon is a legit god among men and women.
Stopping here to say that you have to be a complete retard to say stuff like that.
While her works are good and detailed its
1) weeb stuff
2) you has to be an underage person or younger 25 because otherwise you would know all others artists of 80-90s who were better than her.
3) saying shit like that just because he drew detailed cute anime boi with muhEdgy scars all over is insulting to thos artists.
Fucking /ic/. Never change.
However! it's ok if you are very young and dont know any other good artists like that - i forgive you for your ignorance.
Do you know how hard it is to find skilled artists who draw the pretty anime boys I like to look at? Who don't blur/smudge the shit out of their art and actually render exaggerated yet accurate muscles?
People like pigeon because he/she is all of those things and more. Their work is damn pleasing to look at.
>but people have existed who are better in comparison
you can disagree with their style or "edgy-ness", but you can't honestly say pigeon is trash.
do you really hate anime bois that much anon?
>nesskain draws manly men and he's popular on tumblr. most likely because his work is very homoerotic
Wat...why mention him. There are many gay artists on tumblr. Nesskain is a gay artist that has NOTHING to do with tumblr style (even his colorfullness - it's because he's colorblind) what the fuck are you even talking about.
>it's just erotic. why homo?
1) Gay Art that supposed to be Homoerotic
2) he sells prints for money with naked dudes on them.
3) he also draws porn on his secret tumblr
4) girls liking his work is a minority while the majority still like feminine betas
If it weren't for tumblr I would still be drawing weeb shit but not to give the site too much credit because after an 8 month break from the site I noticed that skill and quality of the artists I used to like are slowly regressing. And that artists are passing bullshit mentalities on what's best for an artist.
Their overall aesthetic was brilliant.
Some of their architecture was boring, but everything else was on point.
i know she is shit and blabla. But...i...remember myself during school days. I was drawing really really shitty pencil/gel ink pen drawings of retarded stuff.
I started to draw when i was 24 and work when i was in late 30s.
And im a cartoonist.
I would [KILL] for her level of skill when i was in school. Her lines are clean and nothing wrong with color. She just drawing some tumblr crap.
But who didnt drew crap-themes when in school?
It hurts to think what she can become when she will be 35 if she will not stop drawing.
Fuck this shit im out.
I think it's illegal to judge somebody who still in school. School kids basically dont have brains. Human starts to be reasonable mostly after 23-25. Before that he/she is still a retarded teenager.
