AC Lurker Thread (NSFW)

edited January 2011 in Artist's Corner
Too scared to make a thread for your art? Afraid to step on toes in the chat thread? Perhaps you find the "doodles" in the doodle thread intimidating...

You can come post in this neutral ground and get a feel for the place. This is overlord approved.

Can I make a lurker coming-out thread? It works in SE++. Some of the best posters came out then and still post.

Give it a shot.

edit: Ok, 6 pages in. Why are you people lurking.

So many good artists hiding in here.

    I'm a semi-lurker in that I don't post regularly, and when I do... only 1 in 20 of those posts are actually read.


    Does that count?
    Can we be brothers?

    At the very least I remember you actually do have a Pierced Neck.

    Not the intent, he's supposed to be old, but the legs were my forgetfullness :)

    The other one is supposed to be "smoking" from it. The shading pretty much erased it, there was supposed to be a slot right below the screen. Unfinished doodle and all.

    Here's something I thought would be fun. How about posting our oldest, crappiest drawings and then critiquing people based on that? This way even if someone is a lurker, they don't have to admit to their work being their most recent. It could be from any stage in their artistic career. I'll go first.

    I know, I know. Even 13 years ago, I was so damn good, any criticism would just be like telling the sun it don't be good at shinin'!

    The problem with doing that, is that you wont be getting any meaningful critiques. And even if you did, it will likely be something that you've already corrected, just from the act of drawing over the course of 13 years.

    There should be no fear in admitting what is recent work or not anyways, since the sooner you come to terms with your current skill level the sooner you can seek to improve it.

    This is true. I know a lot of people who start saying the work is "old" or "not their best" as soon as people start critiquing it. Bad news - people will criticize everything you do, no matter what. Best to take the words to heart, accept your shortcomings (when they're real and not just someone being a jerk) and get better from there.

    Not saying anyone is doing that here, but just a little insight into the creative and corrective process inherent to any talent. Writing, drawing, music, etc. It's all about the same in this sense.

    Well I wasn't implying that we crit current skill based on old drawings. I just didn't see how people, who didn't want to make their own thread, would feel any more comfortable posting their stuff here. I guess I was hijacking, but it was all meant in good fun.

    It wasn't necessarily about posting work. It's just a place for lurkers to delurk, whether that's posting art or saying hello.

    That's what the SE++ lurker threads are, and they seem to work out well.

    There is no such thing as half seal puppy half puppy seal. Well... unless it, like a mule, is sterile. Do you want that cute thing to be unable to reproduce?
