You ever look at some of the big name artists on Deviantart and get the feeling that they're either cripplingly dependent on references or even outright trace?

>> No.3070952

Prywinko is one of the legions of "artists" who are nothing but Sakimichan clones. Due to the fact that Sakimichan's style gains easy popularity, these clones are getting a lot of views and popularity now too. But I wouldn't consider her one of the big name artists on Deviantart. and yeah, she probably has no real independent skill.

There's a perfectly good reason why the artist you're criticizing is successful, and why you are failing to reinforce your statements. I am simply asking you to provide us with more of your input as pictures speak louder than words you could most definitely have good reason to provide that bold criticism however unless you show us where you are coming from you remain invalid.

Nobody is indulging in gratification but the freak anon that's parroting "Post work post work post work"

Op's point is correct, there some strange proportions going on that all they've really done is learned how to blend properly, the first post is a piece destroyed by color dodging.

With stylization it is fine to break some rules of anatomy but as long as its an organism with limbs there will be proportioning

>> No.3071340

yes, I've also noticed that a large percentage of artists that become massively popular at deviantart lately, have been accussed or suspected of copying/tracing/heavy referencing often without crediting (Ilya, Guweiz, NUMYUMY,etc)

you could say that the easiest way to become popular on dA is by copying the poeple who's at the top and usually hits the front page, a lot of the people on dA doesn't care about how original you are or how well can you draw without reference, they just want to see shiny sparkly art and cute/sexualized girls

>> No.3071431

It makes jaded people like OP feel better about themselves and their shitty art. "I-I'm not shit, it's just that I value creativity and IMAGINATION instead of of using evil references! That artists a big fat phoney!" Or "how does this have so many views? If you zoom in 5000% you can see that they didn't even add the bicipretal nerve that flows underneath the bicep through to he jugular. Ngmi!" It's all just pointless bullshit that these guys use to feel better about themselves. They'll spend more time complaining about "shit" artists that are way better than them instead of actually improving their own skills. At the end of the day they'd rather FEEL like they're skilled artists instead of putting in the work to actually BE skilled artists.

>> No.3071440

but what OP says is true. if you were any good you would be able to spot when an artist isn't all-around skilled enough to be able to do certain things in their artwork without a lot of difficulty (heavily referencing poses to a T) or tracing. all they do is learn to render from patreon videos.

This is the best answer here so far. Normalfags don't give a shit about creativity or artistic integrity, it's no surprise so many scummy artists rise to popularity there.

What's mind boggling is how there are so many of their fans on /ic/. Although it is possible it's just one or two guys spamming.

This absolute obsession with working solely from imagination is an /ic/ tier meme and not representative of the reality of being an artist.

I'm not saying being able to work from imagination is bad, it should be trained like anything else and vastly increases your flexibility, but most of the old masters used references extensively.

>your criticism was quickly invalidated
no it wasn't! the draw on the Op is god fucking awful.
It might be 'better than 99% of /ic/' but it's still incredibly awful, how can you not even see it? it's among the best examples of polished turd you can find on this board.
You know very well no one is going to post their work, you know how people are on here, and i'm 100% sure, if someone did, even if you end up liking what you seem you'll still trash it down because of him criticising the hideous op pic.
It doesn't matter what work get's posted here, anyone who is aiming to be good can tell this draw is horrendous, anyone, doesn't matter if it's a beginner or someone more advanced, at best it'll only make some more mistakes visible.

Don't be a dipshit anon. You "show your work" shillfags are just as cancerous as the "it's shit never draw again" niggers.
The truth is that artists on dA and tumblr etc do copy each other and learn "bad things" imitating popular artists. You're too young to remember but a while ago everyone was drawing fucked up torsos and hips and you could tell that they were all imitating Slugbox. most of them even had Monster girl OCs (I can't believe that was a fandom).
That said you are a retard, because a person doesn't need to know anatomy to critique it. I'm no doctor but I can tell that a cripple's hand is fucked up even without knowing proper anatomy. People have to study and learn in order to reproduce believable anatomy, but even normies can tell when something looks off.
