So this has been a long time coming, but I've decided to finally go public with my alt account. It's mainly gonna be used it to post the pages of my comic ELE, but I'm also gonna use it to post all of my personal artwork from now on.
Now I can't speak for the future specifically on what kind of things will be posted there, but I will say this. If you go there expecting the kind of stuff I've been posting here (all unrealistically sized, huge fat characters and stuff of that nature) you might be a little disappointed because that's not what I'm gonna be doing there. I need to think hard about what direction I want to take my artwork in. Ever since that time last year when I burnt out, there's just been this ongoing on/off feeling of it being a grind to draw huge fat characters. And working on ELE has reminded me why I used to love working on things that aren't overtly fat fetish material. And I want to keep that feeling going strong. I also want to start undoing this image I made of myself as JUST a fat fetish artist because I'll be honest, it feels like I've sort of typecasted myself as just that. I want to be able to make things that won't be immediately dismissed by the public at large as just fetish fodder. And this is the first step in doing so.
And to anyone thinking "well why don't you just post all of that stuff here?" The problem is that it will be overshadowed by all the stuff that already exists here. There must be a separation.
So without going into too much detail, if you want to read ELE and finally start learning the story behind my characters while simultaneously keeping tabs on whatever other things I draw, the account's up there; otherwise, you can expect updates on this front in the form of sketchdumps from patreon, and the occasional past commission (basically how it is now). But for the most part, Singularity is gonna be where I'll be posting most things from now on.
Oh right, I forgot to say something about the picture.
It's Matoko, Umi, Valen, and Sade.
I drew them special little outfits.
Matoko's dilemma is one of the main reasons why Umi never wears dresses or skirts unless she has to.
I've watched you from the shadows of the unseen for four years and counting. Throughout all that time, you seemed like you've enjoyed yourself and what you liked. And on top of that, it takes a lot of skill to draw fat girls, especially in the style you draw in. It really is difficult. I realized long ago that a lot of other artist can't do what you do. Drawing people in this fashion challenges what you know about the human form and and plenty of studies and practice is required. At least that's how it went on my end.
I even commented your style reminded me of contemporary Disney animations. Take from that what you will. Of course, I did express interest in what it would look like if you drew average builds and it looks good from from what I'm seeing on your new account. It kind of looks like where I want to take my own art style (although I will make it curvier). And you're part of reason why I want to draw fat women.
You have the freedom to go in whatever direction you choose, but don't attribute that to what 'the public at large' might think about what you create. Not at all.
Follow you till the end friend. I admire you most of all
Also remember that fetish art is still art. Something can be fetishy and still be sensible (there's a million and one completely serious comics drawn by furries for a start). Incorporating fetishism doesn't instantly make something only good for fapping to. (Though that said, the fact fetish art can make people have sexual thoughts just goes to prove it's art because it's evoking an emotional response.)
No matter how big or how small you draw your characters, it's still clear who drew them. I'm sorry if that's not the response you were hoping for, but I'd rather give my honest thoughts and have people disagree with me than lie to keep everyone happy.
The alt account is my way of making a distinction between the types of things I do. It'll allow me to focus on things that aren't primarily fetish material and not feel like a bunch of people are waiting in the wings for me to draw more fap fodder, you know?
I'm not necissarily saying you're making a mistake, but I think you're looking for a solution to a different problem than what you're actually experiencing (typically known as an X-Y problem). Time will tell, but keep an open mind regardless.
PS: Besides, if people really were just watching you for 'fap fodder', do you really want those kinds of watchers anyway?
I was originally gonna make a long drawn out reply to share my views, but to be honest, arguing my reasons for doing what I'm doing with everyone is just getting tiring.
So I'll just say this. I don't know if I'm going to stick it out with singularity or come crawling back here. For the moment, I enjoy posting and responding to people more on that account than I do here. So, explanations and reasoning aside, I'm just gonna do me. I'm gonna draw what I want to draw and post it where I feel. And I'm not gonna try to convince anybody of anything. That's all I've got to say on the issue.
(Evidently I'm not the only one.)
I only chose to say something in the first place because I felt it was important.
Next time I won't bother, I'll just sit back and stop caring.
The more I get caught up in details and have to try to explain it, the more complicated everything gets and I end up putting my foot in my mouth trying to explain.
This is why I think the problem is elsewhere, because it's almost certainly not with your watchers.
Though admittedly at the moment I think I'm going to cling to your old account for now, at least until your new account has more works behind it. It's not the change of subject matter I dislike, it's the change of premises as it were.
Now she's just an eccentric, lecherous, yet still enigmatic character. I'm also in the process of redesigning her, so there's that too. She'll have a place in the story.
...actually no it's not. Yeah, her ears and tail will remain unchanged, just a Getsuika's will. I'm mainly thinking changes in terms of weight and outfit.
I'll keep tabs on that new account of yours. You'll always be a wg and 3B legend but even if it hurts seeing you slow down this account and even take half of it down it's ultimately your decision :/
It'll be posted to Patreon first. Then they'll be posted to Singularity later. There's a backlog of pages anyway, so it'd be a while before it's caught up.
Your character designs have always been my favorite thing about your artwork. I'll be looking forward to seeing them in action in your comic.
But thanks anyway.
