why does every lewd artist over relying on patreon so much does they ever think a bout retirement money patreon doesnt cover retirement i think. do they ever think when they get old their hands cant draw anymore then if they stop drawing would make their patreon paypigs fall apart then lose money to survive kinda sad really once they have a fame and fortune now but then they broke and alone. do they ever think about that

You've never had two jobs to juggle, haven't you?

dude i see these artist begging sympathy for patreon bucks so i didnt think they have a brain capacity to juggle two jobs
Seriously man, all they have to do is get a 40-hour week or so with one job while producing just enough content in their free time to retain their fanbase. But if they actually have two jobs and admit it, the Patreon is probably a means for paying for an expensive vacation or something.

Probably when his pokemon streak ends and there's nothing else to exploit (like the Brits being overrun by SJWs). Although, It's kind of hard to sexualize suicide; but this is the guy who drew a jailbait girl killing people.
Yeah when he gets bored of fetishizing pokemon and needs something else to exploit. I think he has standards but as we've seen I don't think he's above it there's always that nugget of " I can get away with it because I'm Shadman" that I'm sure is in his head.

For what it's worth, I've heard that there's some creepy shit that might be in the next Fire Emblem game; but I think he'll work on the "perverted teacher" angle, first.

I have no clue what this has to do with Shadman, but let's be realistic: you just can't post your artwork or whatever you love to do and make 80-100 dollars a month off of commissions/Youtube views and expect to live comfortably off of that. Not to mention a lot of services have anti-adult content policies, so Patreon, Ko-Fi, and Subscribestar are their best bets to make that money while doing something that they're passionate about.

As an artfag (as some people will call me) you'd be amazed how stupid people are when you try to make it clear that there is no longevity in soley creating smut for people and think it has the same income as a real job. Trying to make it as clear as possible only gets you ignored until you see that post about how they can't pay rent for the month or something like that then using that as an excuse to jack up prices instead of learning "gee.....maybe I should find a second income or something"

Semi-related, the "creator" of Spider-Gwen for Marvel is getting out of the comic art biz because his eyesight is going to shit and he's practically blind. His last pro project is supposed to be Zoe Quinn's Goddess Mode for DC/Vertigo, which did really poorly and looked like shit. Also he's a lolcow who tweeted his brown asshole to one of his ComicsGate™ enemies. Anyways, arthritis is possible but eyesight's a problem too.

It's mainly because they've learned the wrong thing from Vincent van Gogh: An artist's worth is judged solely by how big the :tugboat: is from their "art," even if it's forcing to live like a vagrant. Although, in Vincent's case, he was mentally ill and suicidal during his later years.

So they choose the wrong thing from Van Gogh instead the right thing from Leonardo DaVinci

Yeah I don't get it either but this was until I actually spoke with one of these people and it gave me an incite on how must think. Doing what they like is easy I mean you literally get payed for making jerk off material for strangers who pay you more for their own degeneracy. Some have standards and have a list of "I do this, don't do that" some just go fuck it and do whatever because it's not terrible when the dollar signs are in the way. I got the feeling Shad is like that but secretly also loves the degeneracy because you can get payed a lot more pandering to people's fetishes and tricking others into thinking your opinion is worth listening to if you try to play the shadowy voice of the people and sticking it to the man by drawing whatever you want. The thing is nowadays people are clearly tired of this and don't care enough so he has to actually mature a little and not act like an edgy teen way into adulthood. It's around this time any other artist will start diluting themselves and go two ways: Start raising price tags completely detaching themselves into thinking if people spend more money they can keep their meager lifestyle and not have to confront reality or they can actually understand they need to get a small job (not even anything major just work as a cashier somewhere and you will still have time to draw smut) and let people know this "job" of hoping the generosity of people will net a consistent income because you tap their fetishes won't sustain their way of living.

That's not blurry per se nor it is because of enlarging/resizing an image. It's an effect called Chromatic Aberration, it's a natural effect produced by camera lenses, the worse the lens the more chromatic aberration as a rule of thumb.

I've seen it used as an artistic tool, it's also somewhat common in games, to give you bit of a film/photo-like look. It's fucking stupid to use it in a panel that's supposed to be a YT thumbnail though, no thumbnails have this. On top of that I hate it since it's unwanted, fucks up with clarity of your image and you really don't see it in photos or movies unless you zoom in a look for it, so it's not really that realistic.

The former is something I see a bit from artists who aren't financially set for life or aren't as popular as a Shadman or a Zone and usually have an entitlement complex. And unless their art is that fuckin' good to justify the increase in prices or an understanding fan base, I don't see them maintaining a fan base. And once it gets to the point that their fanbase starts to dwindle, it usually leads to a them throwing things at the wall (typically a style change or even more trend whoring) and seeing what sticks to gain that fanbase back. Or in some cases, a sperg out that would cause what's left to fuck off and maybe earn them a thread here or on /cow/.

CA overuse has gotten especially bad with the "retro"/vaporwave obsession within recent years, and it's even worse to look at in 2D for the reasons you listed. It also doesn't help that the effect's become as much of an artistic crutch as overusing Dodge/Burn to add value, though in Shad's case it only highlights how weak his current art is.

Generally most start off with the intention of just doing art and smut (a lot of the times both) then transferring into taking small commissions and requests. The arrogance and egoism doesn't come in until they have that part of the following who will dress up in their white armor and swoop down to defend every action they do on a vapid principal. With Shad it's the edginess to take the piss out of ht internet but this being 2019 internet hell even 2013 internet where I'd argue meme culture was starting to get normalized in a way people taking the piss out of the internet and themselves is so regular that people like Shad aren't seen as grand purveyors of free speech but more of adults with edgy teen personalities doing shit because it's topical and will make eyes look in their direction. Artists with niche fandoms are the bane of the art realm as they can be as talented as they want they are now stuck in a loop to do the same thing to satisfy the niche because they think the income will be worth it in the end. Thing is those people will get bored and will find the other source to tard cum their interests from and you either go Shadman and just start doing whatever just to get as many small niches as possible and have very little identity besides "The edgelord of the internet" or you can actually understand there's no longevity in the idea of a strictly adult artist for profit unless you have the time to back that up or you've had a career before that (like for example that dude Fred Perry who's had a comic career before he started doing porn related stuff).
