Hello everyone, As promised, we're working on some changes to improve the forum and community! So far, here are the recent changes: Negative reputation has been disabled. Upvoting remains intact. This is a trial run to deal with whiteknights brigading certain topics and salty users mass-downvoting users they disagree with. Some text formatting options have been removed. Some users like to format their posts in ways that make them harder to read or downright obnoxious. (Light colors, tiny fonts, etc), so this helps make threads more readable. If you find yourself needing post formatting because you're making a new thread, please contact a mod and we will make it happen. New threads have to be approved anyway, so you're not going to have to start out with an ugly thread. Text formatting remains available to all users who have supported us via Patreon.No more threads on "Online Personalities". We will NOT lock or remove old threads, but we won't approve new threads about people who don't have any history of drama or controversies. Some threads will be moved to the snowflake sections if applicable. Read the new topic guidelines before you make a new thread.Here are our works in progress: New categories will be added. "Little Snowflakes" is too broad of a spectrum, so we're going to sort our flakes into a few sub-sections to keep things organized. We will also make more use of tags for those flakes who transcend categories. This will also allow us to appoint moderators to specific categories or snowflakes. New moderators will be onboarded soon.
I guess that's an online artist thing becaise I've literally never ueard any artist say this. My sister's boufriend is an artist in Paris who owns a townhouse in the city from it. My gifriend is an art major and I've attended classes with her when she was ill, and nome of ther Proffessors, the grad students, or other indergrad students have described this. My other sister is a graphic designer ans has not described this. Yes, you have to pander to what people want in some ways, but your style is what you're selling. I've never heard an artist describe changing their style or getting lazy with their process to sell stuff to a specific group. Usually, its that your stuff attracts a certain group and you keep doing you and trying new things to be creative and grow as an artist while still balancing the pandering to keep making money.
IDK I'm also an artist and while I don't know if I agree that it's whitewashing or really even a serious issue, I don't think it can be waved off as your style. Like, what are these people saying, their style is light skin? I also just do it by eye rather than literally selecting color from an official reference image, but like, my eyes work perfectly fine and I can choose a darker or lighter it as I go if I need to, to be accurate. I don't know, it comes off as the whole "lighter is prettier" thing because, in the end, it's never artists accidentally using their style to draw a dark character darker. It's always someone doing them lighter. It's always someone who clearly just doesn't draw dark skin often. Which is fine, you do you, but I think that's weird and perhaps (in some cases) based in unconscious racism.
This is the kind of stuff I always ran into growing up. People criticized me a lot because I have a huge chest for the rest of me (36 H) and I've always been told my chest is inappropriate no matter what I do. The best option for those people is stuff loose enough that I look like a box while wearing a bra, which is not at all comfortable when it is holding that much weight. So, discomfort and the most unflattering clothing possible lol. I couldn't wear that dress because the bra I need to hold up my chest and make me feel comfortable would not only show quite a bit, but getting it in a bigger size would make me look frumpy because it would be baggy around the stomach area to fit my chest. I rarely find clothes tight enough for my stomach and loose enough for my hips and chest. The poor girl is trying to act like she's still got her old boobs and if the shape was less stiff she'd be in for a hard lesson and is probably learning it regardless because of the size.
Also, is it cruel that I'm mostly keeping up with this girl to see what happens to her eye? Because I really want to know if she's the 1% that were OK or if she's going to post a teary-eyed confession to Insta about the eye and how she is now half blind. My mother is slowly going blind. The pain of slowly losing something like that- something you always took for granted beforehand- is quite intense. She's so stupid to ignore reality at this point.
That's what makes it worse to me. She has reached the top and is making bank, but in doing it she is either slacking or rushing her artwork. James Patterson makes bank as a best selling author but he has a rushed process and a bunch of ghost writers so his books aren't all that impressive because of it. Sakimi, like James, has talent but wastes it in exchange for making (at your estimate) 2 mil a year. That much money is at the point where it doesn't even matter anymore, you're set for life. She could easily slow down and sacrifice a could hundred thousand for the sake of quality. She'd probably get more patreon supporters if she did that though, so it would be a win-win.
That's fair, everyone has things they think look good and don't look good. I agree it isn't a black people hairstyle. I will actually argue why cultural appropriation is a real thing and relevant, but it really isn't with dreadlocks. Dreadlocks have been observed in multiple different cultures and countries around the world all throughout history.
I disagree, I think dreads look good on any kind of hair when taken care of. I think it should take more than just her hairstyle to be considered blackfishing. Like, if she had the dreads and was typing in AAV and dressing like she's a hip-hop star, then I'd agree. It doesn't just have to be tanning until your skin looks like a Waffle House sausage. But I know dreads can also be a big Celtic aesthetic, too.
I agree, there is a huge amount of artists who do very similar stuff to Sakimichan, but I think it looks closer to her old style. Generic backgrounds with famous characters in a pinup pose and more sexy versions of their usual clothing. Or a really popular character like DVA in the clothes of another character. I don't know if Sakimi started it or if she was just doing what everyone else was doing.
Sorry, I don't quite get what you're trying to ask. Are you annoyed people are fast to point out Asian or European people pretending to be something else or are you annoyed people are fast to point out people pretending to be Asian or European? I'm biracial so I think I can have some insight on this.
To be fair, in Naruto when you create a clone of yourself there is usually a puff of smoke, so I think she's at least being real to the material. I don't know why out of everything else in this, the bunshin cloud is what she decided needed to be believable but whatever.
I think the Jessica Rabbit body fits her style, but it doesn't fit Ezra. I feel like the level of depth that went into this was the fact that Jessica Rabbit wears a red dress and Ezra has red hair. The face doesn't look like either of them. But really, the background is very odd. Did she set up some velvet and curtains with smoke or did she just photoshop a bunch of stuff together to create the look of a stage?
When she loses her sight from the implant she'll have heterochromia when it turns completely black, so she'll get what she wanted in the end anyway, but it will still look weird as fuck because it also probably won't be able to dilate or have much depth to it.
I think it's layering. Also, I'm curious if this is the end. Like, she's been crazily photoshopping and altering her appearance for years but these photos look mostly normal and she looks good like this. I like the new hairstyle. It looks like she's presenting herself as her real age.
