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 know it's a meme that "YoU mAkE sO MuCh mOnEY dOIng fuRRy p0rnz!" but the reality is that if you are not into it you will not make decent money off of it. Sure you may be able to scrape out a few bucks with mediocre pieces of some random fursonas but at the end of the day you have to have some sort of passion for furry stuff to truly capitalize on it.

It's not that easy, and furries are stupid cheap. The kinds of people that buy YCH pieces at 6k are few and far between, and the few that exist aren't dropping stacks on some up-and-coming literal who that's been in the fandom for a week.
In a lot if ways fur is a flooded market and you have to really grind to get your shit to stand out.
>>4018679
Honestly you'd have better luck going on Craigslist or fiverr and seeing if you can get some gigs. Doing comms means building some kind of "brand" and fan base with it and that is not a quick task, nor is it idiot-proof.

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.

>> No.4018722

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.

>>4018703
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"

It was probably less of a meme years ago when there was way less people on the internet and also way less competition. Now good artists of any genre are a dime a dozen.

>Drawing animal dicks kills your soul

Also I notice a lot (or most) furry artists tend to be of the LGBT spectrum. I think it probably requires a "certain mindset" to be passionate about drawing furry porn all the time.

people want art from furries because they understand the appeal and love doing it. and if you dont love doing it, join every other poor underage kid or russian art student selling cheap YCH commissions in that saturated cesspool.you guys are absolute brainlets

>> No.4019283

>>4019190
short answer: if you arent interested in them, dont bother

long answer: just make an account and start posting your furry art with the right tags. do fan art for people on twitter and keep your FA in the bio or whatever, hosts follower raffle i guess. if you dont have a following AND you want SFW commissions, you are borderline delusional.

and a tip for you tards who insist on doing it anyway: use wide images, not long ones. wide images are basically your own banner images on the FA front page due to how it displays.

>> No.4020420

I did it for half a year in my spare time and it was pretty brutal. My advice is catering to a specific fetish you see a lack of artwork for.

Those are the weirdos who will spend.

My other advice is don't do it at all, because you will get tired of it quickly, and cultivating relationships with clients is tiresome as fuck.

I did find some mild success and had 20k followers, but nuked my account and moved on after a while despite it.

It's not maintainable long term unless you're literally a furry.

it works, I know for fact because I get SOME money from it, but dont forget is drawing after all, and if you can barely draw animumu crap then doing furry will be the same of a struggle, usually furries are nice and cool persons, they pay good if they feel you are worth the money, but have this in mind, youll have to build a relationship between your clients as some annon said, and that is time consuming, yeah, I ended up getting some nice friendos in that way as well, but damn dude opening you discord and getting lots of messages its kinda exhausting.
Im a furfag and also a lolicon (yeah massive freakko and pervert scum) and I have had lots of work in and out, it pays ok, it only pays good if you have the rare skill of doing good stuff in little time.

Draw fanart for artists who already have a big enough following and draw whatever's really popular at the moment. The former is much easier since the latter requires you to constantly check what's hot and there isn't a lot of FOTM stuff as opposed to human porn.

>> No.4027939

>>4027767

just tell them to not write anything if they are given an option i guess. put it in your terms (and when addressing your terms/rules with clients, headline it as "how to keep us both safe!" instead of "THIS IS TO PROTECT ME." really heavy terms can scare a client). ive never worried about it. youre taking a risk with this but honestly commissions are always a crap shoot. i just have someone pay up front and i withdraw the money immediately. they usually get a sketch to review within the first day so my customers have nothing to complain about.

as a side note, dont put your paypal email out there. ask a commissioning client to give you their paypal email in a note. i know that sounds obvious but some people are dumb. and on a side side note, check your client's history first. if their account is fishy just tell them you fear being scammed.

Its not that easy. If you did make an account you would have seen the front page full of YCH begging. And every one you go to would be the same, no replies and this being their fourth try to get a fish.

The mad money lads also have mad followers. They also have a style that's not unlike brand to fashion. Having a Miles-df 6k ych is the same as owning a "supreme" brick. Pointless, and only to show off how gullible you are. And not everyone here is a Supreme fashion brand.

Its random who becomes the next wolfy nail or miles df. Some things just click more than others for seemingly no reason. And You? You'd be one in a million trying to be the next wolfy nail.
