How easy is it to make bank on furry porn? I'm losing my shit going on 5 months with a fruitless job search. Never drawn furry stuff before.

I really doubt you are going to have any luck with this unless you’re willing to sink a lot of time and effort into something you don’t even care about. personally I would find it too risky and would rather just keep my job no matter how shitty it is because I like comfort and guaranteed money.

Do you enjoy drawing furry stuff though? That is what you need to ask yourself. But if you have never done it before and had no interest in it before now then you probably have your answer.

>> No.4018736

Deadass. I'm not saying you can't ever make it in fur but I just want you to know that it's not a free meal ticket.
If you ever do decide to do fur art as a genuine interest and not as a profit venture though try checking out your local furry community, one of the trash generals, or some smaller lax pocket of furries. They might not be your best financial supporters but they'll take care of you otherwise. Furries are interesting in that the ones you should avoid will basically wear neon signs

>> No.4018748

It is a meme, there are like 10k ppl drawing furry everyday on deviantart, tried it for a month did a fake twitter and deviantart acc, got 5 followers who just follow everything furry and thats it.
But drawing animal dicks is really kills your soul, you really have to be "special" to enjoy this kind of "art"

Honestly, most of you guys, 99% will not make it. You're probably better off doing something else like knitting or graffiti. Second, if you're over the age of 19, which majority of you guys are and not drawing at least 6 hours a day with consistent progress where you're jumping from beg > intermediate > semi professional > professional level in a matter of 3-4 years, you're not going to make it. If you have a horrible anime or tumblr derivative style, your ngmi. If you lack social skills and a sense of business to be able to promote your works and gain followers, you're not going to make it.

Depends on what making it means to you. Pic related is DC-published art, and I’m sure I could find plenty of a similar caliber in a comic book shop if I looked around. Style certainly isn’t an indication of professional standard. There’s a lot more to it.

Not him, I think the tree is fully fine, but if you want, go out and study irl trees instead of only photographs. There’s a lot more nuance and randomness in the way trees naturally grow. Studying nature is ideal for finding interesting shapes.

Appeal. Did you know for example that graphic design is different from what we do here? I'd say this is similar. Graphic design deals more with symbols and colors and what will look good and despite becoming a decent artist you might still suck at creating logos and that stuff because you don't know about appeal.
That nip draws things that look good, assuming he's crap. He might be an actually good artist drawing like that for fun. The faces are actually well proportionated, a beg wouldn't do that.

i work at a grocery store and i just loosely doodle on sticky notes when i get a minute here and there. even jotting ideas down is useful, i get ideas a lot while im out and never write them down. loosen up anon. dont wait for motivation to come to you either. just sit down and do it and it will be fun every time. learning new things and creating new pathways is the same part of your brain as pain. when you wait for motivation or energy its really fear. but the best thing you can do for yourself is move past it. its like skateboarding, youre afraid of the first fall but once you do, its not so bad. you get back up and go on. its always worse in your head

not so much fear, and not simple motivation. depression and adhd sometimes simply makes it impossible to do anything, but that’s fine because i’m still having fun and i know i’ve been steadily improving so i’m not worrying much. but thank you anon! i think we can all make it if we try.

Can we help save the world through art?

Today the government has more power than ever beofore, people are suffering because of extreme taxation and they even want to be taxed to death thanks to propaganda and identity politics, humanity is better than ever but we're venturing into a new dark ages where people want to obey the will of the emperor and give him unlimited power over their lives.

Can we get so good that we get the attention from everyone and force them to accept ideals of freedom represented in our art just because they can't deny our skill?
Is this the endgame of getting good?

What's that supposed to mean?
>but in reality went with her fellow jews
She became atheist in life and never saw herself as ethnically "Jewish". She saw herself as Polish and in protest about Germanification wrote

>"he Prussian government has performed a new assault on the Polish people! The regulation enacted by Minister of Education Studt removed the last remnants of the Polish language from the schools of the city of Poznan, the last remaining subject taught in Polish, Religious Education, will be taught in German from now on! Our children, who spend half the day at school, will no longer hear a single word in the language of their people, the language of their fathers and mothers. Education, the intellectual nourishment for life, which they are supposed to absorb in school, will be presented to them in a language that is completely strange and unintelligible to them! Are these not outrageous circumstances? The schools were founded for this purpose, the people send their children to school, so they can absorb the light of science, so they grow into knowledgeable, educated people, for their own benefit and for their country’s joy. In Poznan, however, school will not serve the education of the children, but turn them into spiritual cripples, who do not know their own nationality and language, not to sow the seed of knowledge and civilization, but for the violent spread of German identity."

Try harder /pol/tard. The idea of "Jewish" communism kinda falls flat when there were few communist regimes who outright dispelled Jews. For example in Poland, Jews had to leave universities in 1968.

I don't know why people hate anime art. What's the alternate then ?

Furry - Objectively bad for mentally disordered people.
Photo-realistic Art - Which is pointless art and relies too much on tracing and referencing photos glorified by NPCs.
Capeshit - The same realistic style over and over again even anime has more style. Even their stories are recycled garbage.
Video game art - I guess this one isn't bad as It has a variety of styles.
Anime is the best as it uses both imagination and technical skill.
