She can hide her old art and delete current photos, but this is the internet. Her art has been saved 10 times over by different people and her past will come back to bite her because all of her internet history is accessible. The only person she's done this is for herself since her fans started getting tired of her to the point of calling her out publicly that they aren't interested in her anymore. Her problematic stuff, though, is resurfacing and anybody can see it for themselves the kind of person she was/is.

Her deleting posts is a deliberate action. Her motive behind it though, I don't know why because even the non-offending drawings are disappearing too.

Speaking of, more deleted photos from her gallery!

This is her job. I think people harp on her too much but this girl found a way to make boatloads of money doing what she already enjoys doing. She isn't absolutely terrible or anything, just stagnant. 

If she in ten years has enough money she feels comfortable living off of, she could then devote time and love to pieces. But she got really lucky she started young and gained her following during the most hype days of deviantart. 

I think it's fine and a lot of people aspire to do art like this just because it'd be a way to make money. What's wrong with that? It's also rude to offer criticism without asking, especially if someone's just posting something they did for money.  

I dunno. I see the art world for what it is and honestly more power to her. I haven't read through the thread much but people have been pissy about her for years and the only thing she does is draw what people like. There's a lot worse out there. 

Idk. I like her art, it reminds me of why I got into art in the first place: From looking at artists like Sakimichan and wanting to draw characters I liked looking like they could be in a manga or something.

I mean. It's a bit late for that. She does realize as a popular artist chances are her art will get reposted by people right? 

 

Yeah I know but I think she may try anyway.. furthermore, reposting art without permission is illegal (I know that here, when someone posts her art it's for critique purpose—but idk she may ask to take down any people that repost her deleted art?)

I thought criticisms exist to help improve or make them realize their mistake? How is giving a feedback such a bad thing? "Unsolicited" criticism or not, getting one is not something to be scared of.

imagine thinking criticism is only welcome if it’s asked for lmao

nobody would ever have to be confronted with their mistakes

Getting criticism,well the constructive kind anyway, means people are paying attention to you in the first place.  That people want to see you improve and better yourself.  It's a support that artists need in the end.

I like how her art got more generic as I scrolled down

Her work isn't stagnant, it's either rushed or lazy, and because of this her fans have every right to be pissed especially if they are patrons. I'd be mad if I paid every month for the yaoi in her second tier rewards and got very little yaoi, belly buttons in the rib cage, slapped on penises, blurry, unfinished balls, same-faced pretty boy clones with no hair and big muscles, terrible proportions, and characters just awkwardly standing around with an erection.

I mean, Link in the SFW version was holding a bow and arrow. Why would she think taking away his clothes and weapons and giving him a boner makes it a sexy pinup? Why is the metal guy's penis coming out of his thigh? At least you can argue that the little red riding hood wolf-man's penis being so unnaturally long is because he's a fantasy creature.

There is nothing wrong with earning money off NSFW art. There are plenty of talented NSFW artists out there making decent livings, InCase being the first that comes to mind. The problem is that she is being paid by people and delivering mediocre work. No backgrounds, reusing drawings from previous work, exhibiting a poor underatanding of human anatomy, and repeating the same faces and body types that don't fit the original character. She is making a ton of money- every month being close to a teacher's yearly salary, off work that technically doesn't even belong to her. I'm surprised Nintendo or Disney haven't sued her over her work yet with how crushing they can be against anyone attempting to earn money on their properties. Actually, maybe that's why she got rid of her genderbent Disney princess series? 

Anyway, on top of this Patreon banned porn in 2018 and frankly I don't see how Sakimi is still around on patreon. Patreon's rules on porn state a zero tolerance policy on the sexualized depictions of underaged persons illustrated or not. Also, porn isn't allowed to be a reward. I think she gets around the last one because their definition of porn is masituation, sex, etc on camera, so it probably doesn't include illustrations. And she may get around the first because she sometimes ages them up? I dont know, I'm not Patreon. I should mention that I don't want her gone or to mess with her income, I just don't really see how she's managed to get by these things when many other artists have not. 

And LOL if we aren't allowed to criticize things people do for money then I guess no more criticising politicians or artists, and athletes will have to lose without knowing what they could have done better. Yeah she's drawing what people like but as I said earlier I don't know how she's making so much money off of it without retribution. Apparently she has the 16th most followers on Patreon? So its not like she isn't on their radar. Being removed from search functions because she's marked NSFW shouldn't hide her from anyone interested, especially since her art used to be all over buzzfeed and facebook. So yeah, all to her for being super talented and making it big. But I'm unimpressed at the lack of care that goes into her stuff. As an artist, if a piece isn't done I don't put it out for public consumption let alone allow someone to throw money at it. I dont often sell my stufd but if I had a Patreon and I was being rushed to meet the monthly terms, I would set it up so I get paid when I deliver (as I am pretty sure you can do) and therefore can take as much time as I need for the work to be worth paying for.

She’s definitely talented and she wastes that for some quick money from young fans. I think her art would look great if she’d work for a game company with cool concepts. I do remember she did the artwork for some mobile game a few years ago. Does anyone remember the name?

The only one I can remember her promoting was called Shop Heroes. I think she did most of it but I find the character sprites sorta stylised? Maybe she drew them that way to fit the game but it's also not uncommon for a company to retouch an artist's drawings. The CGs are definitely hers though.

(Putting them under spoiler because there are a lot)

So i decided to voice my personal opinion on Sakimi too. To be quite honest, i've never been a big fan of her art(just not my style/taste),but i always admired her skills. She used to have a lot of unique ideas when it comes to poses,backgrounds and costumes. Like this art for example,it's from like...2012? But way better comparing to her most recent works: 

the_bird_spirit_by_sakimichan-d4b0mit.th

What i dislike about her current works is not even the sameface syndrome/general repetative-ness of the art(that would be hypocritical of me considering i stan artists like Ilya Kuvshinov and have sort of repetative art myself); not even tons of NSFW art(though i have to agree it's annoying,especially when she sexualizes child characters or gives the canonly flatchested/skinny characters huge boobs and abs); it's that i feel she completely lost interest in art and only does it for money now. I just don't see soul in her new art no matter how much i try. That's probably why she only draws characters from the most popular anime and games and completely abandoned drawing OCs and characters from less famous fandoms - because that way her drawings would get less attention and money...sad.
