To all the non-"professional porn artists" here...
In case you actually draw nsfw stuff on the side:
Do you post it online?
Do you choose to only post mild ero art, or do you actually post hardcore or fetish porn?
How do you keep it seperate from your normal art?
Are you afraid of other people to find out about the nsfw stuff?
I usually just post all my adult content on here. I don't sell it or have a patreon for it because people torrent that shit anyways, so my only real motivation is I'm either drinking and want to see naked bitches or I'm just in the mood to just post it and ignore when anons ask for my tumblr. I usually do sfw shit, and would rather not be known for my nsfw shit, due to trying to maintain a portfolio which I can use for everyday customers.
I go by only one name, I don't fucking care anymore. I gave maybe one shit about people finding out when i was 16 and tried to attend an art school, they didn't take me, man. They didn't want me to be with "normal" 16 year olds because I forgot to rip out a drawing of a teenage gril getting dicked when i showcased my sketchbook.
Life is pain man but know what helps? Money. And you make good money with half decent, half assed fetish porn. I'm bitter and the world is ugly, I don't feel the need to hide my fetish porn anymore, everyone knows.
Just do it
I started drawing planning to draw smut and then after doing shitty lewds in my first month or two of learning I stopped and never resumed.
I don't even fucking know, man. I'm not even one of those proud anons who thinks it's beneath him, I just didn't get around to it.
I run the gamut but stay mostly towards suggestive things because that's what I'm into, and I stay out of the truly deep end of the cesspool
I use all separate accounts and names for everything; emails tumblr/da/etc
Yes and no. I don't want my family seeing it but I don't think there's a danger of it. I was afraid of my friends finding out but they did anyway and were strangely supportive but them knowing still makes me uneasy. People I don't know I want them to find out about it so they'll maybe pay me money.
Did for a month
Suggestive to fetish/kink
Didn't, linked the accounts
Not at the time, was public about it except for family and some friends
I closed the account I was doing this type of work for, even though I got noticed for once in my life - simply because I became even unhappier. My best advice is if you guys feel isolated or have low self-esteem, don't try going down this route for money or some sort of recognition. It'll only distract you from what you truly want to do (unless you truly want to do nsfw, go right ahead). If it's money, get a part-time job. If it's just to learn something, take some classes over at schoolism.
You are one weird person because you're trying to give a generalized advise on something that you experienced because of your particular values. The rest of us are just left here to imagine and assume what it was that made you depressed about it, since you really didn't expand on it and have you way to know what happened to you if you just tell us the end result, which you seem to think should suffice.
I draw porn occasionally.
Most of it doesn't get posted online. I'll post it on 4chan if it's for a drawthread, and if it's non-porn NSFW (like a tasteful nude) I'll put it in my gallery, but I assume you're talking only about porn.
I only post porn here so I'll do hardcore shit and post it. But none of it goes into my gallery.
Only post it anonymously.
Yes, I don't want to be known as a porn artist. But if someone ever commissions me to do porn, I would do it.
>Do you post it online?
no, I don't think I'm good enough yet. I might be better than 90% of what gets posted on r34 but I'm not satisfied myself.
>Do you choose to only post mild ero art, or do you actually post hardcore or fetish porn?
I don't think that would matter much.
>How do you keep it seperate from your normal art?
Doesn't matter, I'm not doing it professionally.
>Are you afraid of other people to find out about the nsfw stuff?
Sometimes I guess but it's more like people finding your porn stash or something. Nobody has access to my PC except for the NSA so I guess I'm fine.
Please don't post your porn until you're a competent enough artist.
That said, the sfw/nsfw divide depends on the content more than the sexual. Chris Sanders draws naked ladies and nobody gives a shit because they're cheeky pin-ups, which in the terms of internet fetishes are absolute baseline tame.
What will reflect on you in people's mind are the truly weird shit, like inflation or furry whatever, and the truly depraved shit, like gore and those manga with 'and then she was a mindbroken sex slave forever are u aroused yet' endings. Also, actual shit. People are finicky like that.
Sadly, weird and depraved shit are by far the biggest market when it comes to commissions.
Does anyone actually care? i dont give a shit if someone likes to draw giant horsecock furrys
I was in a twitch art stream where a guy was preaching how bad it was that people drew somewhat suggestive pictures (not nsfw) and that it had a negative impact on his professionalism and that no client would hire them etc
