>drawing fanart is preferable to making your own original content

Maybe if you're creatively bankrupt, sure.

The fact that she's making money off the IPs of other, bigger, corporations means she's still at their mercy. Such is IP law. Companies are fully within their right to put an end to her if they wanted to be dicks about it. In fact, if most corporations were as insecure as some artists when it comes to "protecting" their work, fan-art wouldn't be allowed at all.

>> No.2005573

Are you fucking retarded? Fanart is free promotion for these companies. Big companies will sooner start paying Sakimichan to do fanart of their work before they'd try to shut her down. Kind of like how game studios are starting to pay youtubers and twitch streamers to play and stream their games.

>> No.2005583

Yeah but we don't live in your fantasy "what if" world. Fanart has become an essential part of marketing for many companies. If Disney released a new animated movie and there was no fanart of any of the characters to be found online, their marketing department woul shit themselves and try to find out what went so horribly wrong.

Couple of days before the big box office premiere, the #sketch-dailies guys on twitter do a HTTYD2 topic. Suddenly hundreds of artists with thousands of followers are doing #Toothless and #HTTYD2 related sketches. What a coincidence, right? Surely Dreamworks would love to shut that down! No way that they are actually paying the Sketch-Dailies guys to have these topics at exactly the right time, right?

>> No.2005584


Big companies don't need artists making money off "free promotion" of their IPs. In fact, the reason the fan artist is able to make money is BECAUSE of the fandoms formed around the IPs from those bigger corporations. Those companies don't need fan-artists who make money simply off riding coat tails. They are in every right to send them a cease and desist. Samikichan is not Artgerm.

Artgerm is contracted by corporations because he has his own brand and fanbase. Samikichan is contracted by the FANS of those corporations because she's a fan-artist. Huge difference.

>> No.2005599

Fan art generates the hype around products. It's viral marketing. It also prolongs the immersion. Even after a show or game is finished, you get new content from fanartists and are more open to a sequel for example.

>> No.2005601

>Big companies don't need artists making money off "free promotion" of their IPs

They don't need them, but it helps them, as explained in >>2005583

Do you really think having no fanart at all is a better start for a movie release than having thousands of fanart pieces trending on social media, creating extra hype? Regardless how big your own marketing campaign was, fanart IS a measuring tool of how much the public cares about your product. Obviously depending on the product itself, like for some serious drama or horror film there won't be much fanart and it still might do well, but for an animated movie or popular video game, or comic reboot, cartoon etc, the amount of fanart is quite related to its success.

It's really not rocket science. The more people care about your product, the better it will do. Shutting down fanartists who are people that care about your product AND make others care as well is always a bad move from a business perspective.

I don't know why you need to cling to this fantasy of yours that Sakimichan might one day be shut down by big companies, but it is just that, a fantasy. It's not going to happen. Ever.

That's not at all what I'm saying you degenerate retard. Do you know what a typical artist does? They go to their absolutely shitty 9 to 5 job with a power-tripping fuck head and a bunch of phony faggots breathing down their necks all day and then come home and make art in what's left of their life in the interim. Many decent independent artists don't survive on their art alone. Sakimichan is making fanart now earning more money than a fucking surgeon (which she genuinely likes doing as far as I can tell) and then she can make her own shit on the side if she feels like it as sure as any other artist. She will be set for life in less than two years and could stop as abruptly as she started.

It's not a matter of making the fan-art, it's the matter of THAT being your main source of income.

People who's primary source of income is fan-art don't create the hype, they are cashing in off it's already established presence. The fan-artists who create the hype do it for free of their own free will (mainly because they are fans themselves in one way or another). Not at the request of the already established fans of that IP.

Artgerm draws fan-art, but that isn't his main source of income. He has his own brand as well as contracts from companies on top of teaching in classrooms.

Samiki is literally just pandering to the fans of other people through the internet to make a dollar while making laughable tutorials like >>2005389

You do know that breasts are never symmetrical naturally, right? I wish I could say I see something wrong with it... but assuming those are natural, they are kind of falling the way natural breasts would when combined with movement.

They go up, they go down, they look kind of funny. She should've have drawn the whole body so that the idea of sudden movement would be more apparent.

I can see why she drew them that way. They don't just sit there like huge balloons. Tits are kind of ugly when you jump around.

And the left one, if natural, would in that pose sink back and slightly into the underarm area.

>> No.2008867

I'm looking at the silhouette of them... and looking at my own posed like that.

>> No.2008873

Then you're not observing carefully enough. The top half of that boob is drawn as if it's supported by a padded bra or bustier, and the bottom half is drawn as if hanging loose. If she wanted to make them look perky that'd be fine, but for the nipple to be raised as much as it is, the flesh under it needs to look more solid, so it should be tapering in more with more tension pulling at the bottom part of the base where it connects to the chest. Other wise, it should be all around flatter or at least have the nipple pointing more downward as it should.

You've never seen any tits, fat girl or otherwise.

Ahris got a pair of chubby white girl e cups sitting on her chest.

They've got skill (if not, I don't know what the fuck /ic/ is on) but I just don't like it, honestly.

Do any of her guides actually help?
I'm totally willing to sell out for porn dollars but can't draw cute to save my life.

Worst part is: I can't fucking stand his facial expression style. feels too unsincere and SJW-ish, you name it. His depiction of male characters are way too faggish. Also chromatic aberrations hurt my eyes.

she gives what people want, they want to see disney art, not something new and creative. If you are mad with someone be mad with the mass culture

I really hope this is gonna be the last Sakimi thread for a good while.

Its being bumped by sakmi shills.

I'm not even mad - it works, and she gets more popular and gets more money with each passing day.

When I git gud, I'm going to hire a kid to shill for me on 4chins/social media as well. Sadly, my shill won't be as effective because a girl artist can make a horny boy do anything - all I can offer is money, really.

She drew my waifu, so she's okay in my book.
