so I have been doing SFW pieces for a while now, but I think I want to start doing some NSFW commissions now, but what is the best way to receive payment for pieces while remaining anonymous?

While I haven't done this before, anon, I do know a few people who have and who actively do.
One piece of advice that I heard from someone actively drawing this sort of comms is that you should not use the email address that you use for paypal as a primary contact email, or an email that you give out to anyone but the respective person that's paying you.
This is mostly to avoid paypal noticing you're selling porn over their platform. But again, this counts mainly for paypal. Which I rbought up given it's the main tool a lot of people use.

I'd love to tell you about other ways to exchange money, but I'm not too sure about others. I know there's cryptos, but it's not a pond in which I've really swam before.

>> No.4629823

>>4629819
One other piece of advice I can offer if you're using things such as paypal or something else that might have an issue with NSFW material is the following:
Detach the material itself from the transaction. What I mean by this is, you could do something such as a small doodle or whatever, that you could always cite as the reason for the transaction if anyone from these wallet choking services asks. As far as they're concerned, you only sell $50 sketches of care bears hugging clouds.

The "style" you might be looking for here might be in the real of old prints, at least going by details such as the thick outline with some of the hatching and cross hatching.
Although, consider that this sticker will be a painted modern adaptation of such old prints which would traditionally be done in xilography. As far as I'm aware a lot of prints wouldn't use much cross hatching (Like in the wings) in favor of cleaner simple hatching (as you see in the belly of the dragon and the feet).

It's not that easy to find many originals as there's many people online trying to copy them. But if you look for heraldry dragons and heraldic art. You can see examples like this dragon you posted.
Pic related, it's one of the more legit things that you can find.
You can also look into medieval german print makers to see similar examples. As the Germans heavily favored xilography for a while.

If you only trace references without really understanding them, you produce soulless shit like pic related. Good enough to impress normies and NGMIs, but pig-disgusting to actual artists.

If all you care about is impressing people who are unable to appreciate art, then sure, just copy what you see. But you could impress them with virtually anything, because they don't even know how to look.

Actual skill requires an understanding way beyond just acting as a human camera. You have to capture the forms, balance the composition, control the pattern of marks you make for aesthetic appeal.

>> No.4628315

If this connects with you then you should draw more original stuff. It may not look perfect but you'll quickly learn what your faults are and hopefully improve. References and studies could be used to learn how to fix those faults instead of just doing them for the sake of doing them. I always hate it when I find someone online who draws neat ideas that might be weak but have potential but then they fall into the endless studies hole and never climb out.

There's wetcanvas.com but the people there are pretty much all retirees and other assorted boomers. They tend to be pretty bad, too.

I am in financial ruin, no job and a debt for over $10 000. Is there a way for me to earn money from art in any shape or form? I've been drawing for some time now but I am in the middle of getting to the point where I can be hired for my stuff, now my art has no value (no following, no one to buy it even). I realize it's a stupid question because the term "a starving artist" is legit but I just can't handle the stress of having no income whatsoever. I work digitally so it makes everything even harder, I don't know if I should kill myself or actually try, since everything seems so hopeless now

coom art is a bit of a hack but it helps to have a coomer art style.

Fuck you and pyw if you want advice. How are you going to ask for help on how to make money with art if you won’t post your shitty ass work? How much/if any money you make is based on your skill level. Fuck off.

Apparently craigslist works great for that, despite its reputation. Wouldn't hurt you to post there and look for gigs while waiting for people to commission you.

I need help. I am new to drawing. I have been using bezier curves to draw. This results in vector paths with a constant stroke width.
I am trying to emulate the style on the left. You can see that the lines get thicker in certain places, like around corners. My WIP is on the right. I'm wondering if there's a quick way to achieve the same effect on the vector outline I've already drawn. Ideally I'd be able to take my mouse and brush over parts that should be thicker, and have the vector lines get thicker there.
I'm using Krita but I'll download or pirate any software you tell me to, so tips in any software are appreciated. Any other tips on vector line art, like if you have any favorite techniques or brushes, I'd be happy to hear those too.
I do have a wacom tablet but I want to see if I can do without it.

linework layers in SAI/CSP allow you to edit thickness of lines where you choose, but the end result will look like shit either way

I'll check that out. Also I found a gif illustrating what I had in mind.

>> No.4628016

if you're looking for something more manual, the term line weight is the one you're looking for. but the only way I know of to achieve this is to draw them manually, as in you draw them yourself.

You're sitting at your desk, pen/pencil in hand, ready to draw. You think about what you want to draw. Do you "see" an image in your mind / imagination?

Yes but I also have references and prompts and understanding of the subject before I start and before I start a final piece I make a bunch of sketches to try my visions out in practice because they're not accurate.

>> No.4627978

>>4627828
Yes but I tend to have multiple images from different angles in my mind so I have to work out the composition in my head a bit first. Learning more about shapes has helped a lot.

Something like this.

No. And I think that’s the problem. Like I’ll know what I want to draw (girl being tortured by a mad scientist, I have a damsel in distress thing) but I can’t picture what she really looks like, how is he torturing her, how is she bound, etc. I just kind of bullshit that as I go and that’s why it always ends up as shit. I especially fail at thinking of a scene like what else is in his mad scientist lab? What equipment? Tesla coils? Beakers? Shelves of severed women’s heads? A hideous lab assistant?
