I think it’s up to the viewer to decide what is and isn’t art. I don’t think of myself as an artist. I just want to draw tits and ass and sell out as hard as I can to as many people as possible with as little effort as possible. If I have deeper goals, they aren’t art related. At best they’re business related, as I believe everyone can make a living with time and effort. Illustration is just a technical thing.
But that’s just what I think man. If you think something is art, it’s art. You’ve got just as much right to define it as anyone else. It’s a personal thing. If you look at the impossible boobs I drew and think it’s good art, awesome. If you think it’s bad art, like, I feel bad for you man. Because I don’t even think it’s art to begin with, and I’m the fuck who drew it! It’s literally just sex appeal. Which some people think is art! I think it can be. But I’m not setting out to make it that usually. For me it’s just making my fans and supporters, whom I love dearly and depend upon completely, happy. I’ll work to better myself at what they want, whatever it is.
But since you think it’s art, and think it’s bad, it must be affecting you negatively, and that sucks bro. How cool would it be if there was a universal symbol for "This with zero artistic, emotional, or social intent, and for completely financial and publicity related purposes. Please do not promote this work in a positive or negative light if you believe it to have intrinsic artistic value put their by the artist. The artist assures you it does not, and that they have zero interest in necessarily contributing to the art communities or defining any sort of emotional or artistic statement. The artist also has no goals or plans to deviate from this purely technically defined career. If you speak out for, or against, this work, you will only further it’s intended purpose and success, which is simply to be shared and spread at any cost." Then you would know it’s pointless to attack it, as that only feeds into its intended purpose.
Yes, you can argue someone “like me” brings down the “value” of art. You can also argue that by “lowering” the “standard” level of “skill” that a “popular” artist should have, it helps “real” artists stand out. You know, cool guys and girls who spent tens of thousands of dollars on art school or have the “CREATIVE SOUL AND DRIVE” or whatever. Whatever the case, i just don’t care. I wanna draw and sell animu girls and make a livable wage. Which isn’t that different from any other supply/demand field. But it’s not art. Unless you want it to be art. Good or bad art. I don’t care. It only benefits me and “non-artists” anyway by bringing it up.
Also I watch your streams when I can catch them and have the time.You have some interesting points about art.I actually learned quite a bit and I thank you for that. I consider you as an artist.
A very good one at that.Even though some of the stuff you draw isn't my cup of tea.I sometimes think it is odd a little lol If you consider yourself more as a business man I guess that's fine.I was honestly surprised to see this written in your journal.However you have made some very good points.Thanks for sharing.I'll continue to watch you.You are a huge inspiration to me.
No one can bring down the value of art as it does not have a predetermined value to begin with even if it has a price tag.
I've studied art and the artists at my university have made more offensive stuff than pictures of butts and boobs and they all have a degree in art now.
People make me sick with their shameless abuse of displaying their sensibilities and modesty - like being offended is ever an acceptable argument for why something shouldn't be in or what should be considered artwork. It's artwork. You don't like that fact? Too fuckin' bad. Porn is and can be objectively considered art. So long as objectivity is the judge (and it is the only end all be all) and it should be, opinions don't matter. Case closed.
You are kind of like a Digital Image Engineer ( and yes, there is art in what you do, or else it would be a string of code lol). You can tell that you have learned your instrument (Photoshop) and you well...use it! Sure you draw ecchi and tits and ass and anthro and anime goodies, but to make that anatomy look appealing, in a stylized or exaggerated form, it is an art. It is decided proportions and whatnot, it is not perfect but that is a type of art. There is no such thing as soul-less art, it is all a craft that you dedicate time and energy and heart to.
A scientist can make a cure for cancer, but if he/she never shows it or makes it known and keeps it to themselves, does it matter?
Keep on keepin' on and doing your Slug thang and ignore the haters.
what i want to say is that i never thought, that just the half of the people on Da are realy pople who wants to be artists.
so, hey. dont give a shit on anyone who trys to fuck your work up, nobody alse cares about it, because you are awesome.
To me, it's porn and art. It's porn because of exposed areas. It's art because it was crafted with hands and tools. These images can be art alone with 1 change.
You decide what you draw and what those images show. There is a market for that. There has always been a market for that.
I've considered that myself. I try to better myself, and make adult stuff as the best I can as people demand it and want it. People say that comics (what I mainly do) are not art, have done for a long time, yet, some do, and heck, even have cover 'art' framed and hanged.
So i agree, it's a matter of persepctive on what is and isn't art. To me, it's either 'good' or 'badly' drawn.
TO me, comics aren't art, they're entertainment vessels, with (hopefully) 'quality' drawn pictures that tell an interesting story.
We're called artists, when all we really are, are entertainers.
Either way, I enjoy your work, porn, art, or entertainment.
If someone else says it's art, It's also art.
Tracey Emin Stuck her unmade bed which she's had sex in, in the middle of the Tate Modern and called it art
Duchamp stuck a urinal with his signature in the middle of a gallery and others called it art...therefore it is art
In fact Duchamp actually did that to take the piss out the fact that he thought what people were calling 'art' was getting ridiculous
If only he knew what he started
It's all personal opinion and there's nothing you can do about that.
Even if you don't personally call it art, no doubt someone out there will call it that… and then it is
slug man you are awesome. plain and simple
i 1st read this on tumblr but this gif just killed me... (might have something to do with lack of sleep and its 3am.. again???)
anyway idk you are awesome also and everything can be considered art.. my brain has too little power to worry about all that stuff...
just know you are awesome and i am so glad i found your stuff
even tho I am Beholding Tits and Ass I find them Beautiful
and I want to buy some out of you, you wonderful whore you!
If it has no meaning and you drew it, it is an illustration.
If you wrote it, it's just a text piece.
If you sung it or rapped it, it's music.
If it has love and passion in it, it's art.
That's just my opinion.
not everything ever created is art
and Yes saying that cooks, writers, musicians and artists are all equal artists is true
If there is real passion and love put behind something then I think that is what makes it art
some people think art is creative work with deep meaning behind it while the other is simply a creative drawing
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW. Lmao. jus' wow.
if not, why-.
The body is a beautiful thing. If it's okay to draw people with giant heads and eyes, then it's okay to draw people with giant boobs and tentacles. And it IS art. If a statue of a guy jacking off can sell for millions of dollars at an art auction (and I say that with complete respect for Murakami), then anything can be art.
I love what you draw and how you draw it. It's lighthearted and it celebrates the female form. Your girls aren't victims being punished. They're playful and proud of their unusual bodies. Your cute, smutty drawings make me feel better about myself than beauty magazines and moral police telling me to cover my ass and buy their lingerie. I know that's not the point, but that's the effect it has on me, and that's why I'm your fan.
I wonder how many other girls feel this way??
IT's TOO TRUE.
So regardless of whether or not it's "Art." I like it!
people are silly
Not all porn is art, and not all art is porn. Art can be pornographic, and pornography can be artistic. It depends on your individual perspective, as you said. I would argue, though, that there is a definitive line when it comes to media, but if you don't like it, don't look.
