Bit of a Break

Allo and stufffffff. So I'm going to stop drawing porn stuff, I dunno if it's gonna be permanent or not at this stage but I'm honestly tired of it XP. I don't like the fact that all the furry art sites I frequent are filled with really awful, explicit porn so drawing it for others on top of that is just overkill really. I'm not of the opinion that it's a really bad thing to draw porn or any shite like that; whatever people like, they like, it's not for me to judge. As for my own perspective, I've never had any interest in sexually explicit material; sometimes I value a picture for what it is but the sexual side has never had any appeal for me, it's just the way I am.

So yeah, not drawing porn at the moment.

I kinda feel the same way. I might draw something slightly mature-ish every once in a blue moon just to appease the furverts and such (And to appeal to my underwear fetish) but I'm tired of seeing so much uber-hardcore porn on an "art site". We're kind of proving the furry stereotypes, people /:

Stereotypes aren't pulled completely out of thin air. <:3

It's okay to like porn and even be a fetishist, but I just think it's kinda... wrong to have so much porn in an art site. I'm okay with the porn, and hell, I admit I like a lot of it, but I kinda wish I'd see more tasteful art in this community on the front page.

Well, that's an issue of the type of site. There are capital A "Art" sites out there that very much stick to higher standards of both quality and content - and there's nothing wrong with that. Any site with the primary purpose of focusing on "Art" in the sense of quality display of artistic ability and statement in general without any more specific focus than that will likely discourage too much focus on sexual content.

But this site isn't "an art site." It's a Furry Art site. That's not saying furry art is automatically anything less or not "real art" or anything like that, but this fandom does have a powerful inclination towards freedom of expressing the usually-suppressed sexual side of our nature. The site caters to a specific subculture of an artistic community, so you see as much adult vs tasteful art as that community is inclined to produce.

I agree with you that if I was on a site specifically focused on more serious or substantial types of Art, I would be bothered by seeing tons of porn. But it would only be "wrong" in the sense that on that sort of site, people wanting to see or produce outright porn wouldn't be the intended audience that sort of site would be meaning to cater to.

I also agree that it would be really awesome to see more higher-quality art of a broader range - tasteful or not - but this site does get the people it's intended to cater to, so the abundance of porn shouldn't be seen as "wrong." The site does/gets what it was made to.

Nothing "wrong" with it. I didn't mean to use that word, I'm sorry. It's just that I'd really like to see more stuff that isn't focused on the sexual side of things. It's to the point where I see it uncalled for. Like "Oh, that's so cute! Why is he naked? He doesn't really need to be naked and it doesn't add to this at all."

That's fine, I never commission porn nor do I wish to see porn drawn often anyway. I'm happy with your choice. =^^=

I thought you were already on a porn hiatus.  Or do you mean you're taking a break from visiting Inkbunny?

Also, I have to be honest with you man.  My two favorite porn pics you made were the ones that had the crass, blunt social commentaries in the word balloons.  It's also the only time that I actually enjoy that sense of humor from you, being even more honest.  I just like the way they clash with each other.  That statement, as you may have guessed, is also completely 100% un-dishonest.

That's cool Roarey ^^  I really like the nostalgic, children's storybook-like feelings I get whenever I look at your work. Its really nice. And theres already so much porn on IB that I kind of already think of it as a porn site anyway. :P It's just great to have a lot of fantastic clean-only and clean+softcore artists like yourself and others around as well.
Just be who you are, and keep up all of the great work!  =3

Do you consider cute nude pictures porn too?
RoareyRaccoon
7 years, 1 month ago
Depends really, I don't want to draw nude cubs anymore but nude adults can be tasteful XP. I'd just prefer to not draw genitals in general.

I meant like, bulging pants or the hint of a nipple or the buttocks (no anus showing) and such stuff.

Well stuff like that is still overtly sexual but eh I dunno. Depends on how I feel at the time I suppose XP.
SenGrisane

I see. I hope it will be lots of fun for you drawing what you like. :3

Well taking commissions always involves drawing what you don't really feel like, it's just one of those things XP. But not having everything be about sex will be nice XP.

the most important is always that you are happy with what you do. besides, your art is always just sooo cute, no matter if mature, porn or general ^_~

only one thing, does this also include bulges? o.o

Yeah, I want to steer away from overtly sexual material.

sometimes drawing porn is like oversexing things, so it's only logical to take a break from that. ^^

This reminds me that I haven't popped by while you stream in a while, I'll have to pop in again next time I get a chance.

Art is good doesn't mean you have to draw porn stuff,look at all the non porn stuff you have too. I'd never show any of my family most of the stuff I draw and maybe thats a sign that Its wrong but I still like doing it as well as non porn stuff.I guess you get better hits on the porn stuff then the others but they are just as good as the sex stuff is and as you say taken for the artworks that they are.

After having some pics done by RR I'm kinda in agreement with his feelings on porn,His drawing of my Travis shows me that you can have cute stufff and people still will like it.After a few more commissions come in I might try doing normal cute stuff and not the porn part.
