Nude version could be found over my pixiv.
Lately my pal and I gotten into quite serious debate about Patreon and fanart, mostly because of me; since I'm heavily into Darksouls and want to draw some fanart, while scare to fall into the NSFW fanart cliche, because most my art would be nude or semi nude (not much body positive here, it's just I'm suck with drawing clothes)My side:
It got looked down because there is mild stigma of original vs fanart, and as Patreon encourage artist to make more art that meet the crowd demand, so there will be more rushy art surface and thus the stereotype about trashy cringey fanart spread faster. Not to mention, more than once I encounter artist who think just because they paint an popular character in some provocative pose, it automatically must be good, and more than one act rude to me when I declined their, while accept Zeilyan's gorgeous works. Attitude like that didn't help in this situation.
He send me straight to /y/ , point out to me that there are a bunch of sketchy porn around, but sketchiness didn't synonyms with soulless. Which later, after done freaked out, I must admit he was right. But those drawing was mostly made for non commercial purpose so I held on to my point a little. His side:
It got looked down because some of them have become more openly fetish art, which have always have a stigma again them. And now when it could be use as st to gain money from patron, it surely would be extravagance to the point of being cringy. And not everyone happy when their favourite character got put in to OOC situation; which lead to harsher view again fan art, especially over Patreon where money involve.
I dismiss because I have come across account with a bunch of Mpreg art, which is not my taste but I must admit the color and the anatomy is on point. An other case I know, his art is full of anatomy flaw and I still view BDSM as a type of "morbid curiosity" but there are undeniable allure in his art. However, both of them draw OC, so maybe that why they haven't blatantly abuse their character yet.
So it come to this challenge: a painting contain a popular character that isn't mine, involve some sort of trendy phenomena, in a provocative pose...aka every temptations that could make me abandoned my dedication because I know it could catch the eyes, whether it well done or not. And him? The internet quickly paint him as some sort of "failed to be edgy kid", and I have quite painful experience when deal with one like that. Tbh, I found him as quite a friendly dorkily person, maybe got lame jokes, but not as annoying as the 2edgy4u wannabe twat I have to handle in the past.And because I sure as hell this sparkling butt would caught your attention better than a journal
So what do you think about the subject that bring me to this?
