Actually, I guess I can start it off.

>don't draw what I want to draw, because I live with people and don't want them to see that shit
>which is a stupid concept because there is already a bunch of dodgy naked ladies in there, but whatever
>i just end up not drawing due to lack of motivation
Should I buy a separate diary for the weird/disgusting stuff and use the current one as a decoy?

The frustration at reaching a good level of skill, then taking a break for a month or so, and find that no matter how much you've accumulated a library of things you can draw, you have to start over regaining your lost abilities. Just taking a week long break is enough to corrode enough skill to make one grit ones teeth and shake ones fist at reality-at-large.

Oddly enough this often helps me gets to back into drawing in a way most of the time: I draw poorly, then look back on my older stuff and see it's somehow better than what I'm doing now, and feel motivated from knowing I can probably get back up to speed pretty quickly if I already made something like that before.

Also, why was my previous post here deleted? Self-effacement banned or something?

I said that for a while it seemed like no one posted until directly after I drew something, which made me think either people are just more likely to post if a thread was recently bumped, or I just draw so poorly that people don't want my thread at the top of the page. I'm pretty sure it's the former, but I thought it would make an alright joke? In any case, you're all cool and better at linework than I am.

I really ought to draw on paper more but stuff keeps conspiring against me having control of the scanner, and I like being able to share my work easily. Ideally I'd just get my own house by now and not even have to deal with the scanner being an all-in-one printer.

Where do people submit their smut these days? I've been out of the fanic loop for a long time. Last I heard is that fanfiction.net had a purge of undesirable smut and I would rather not jump down that hole if it's only going to delete my stuff. I finally have the determination to start my writing projects and would rather put them on a site that has a search function.

>44089
I know this is a late reply, but I do prefer fanart to look good over accuracy. I have saved so many pictures of Zuko with his scar on the wrong eye and Crimson Typhoon whit it's double arms on the wrong side. Also, I would recommend putting a comment or a description that said artistic liberties were taken. BUT, if the fanbase for the piece is particular rabid in the neck of the woods its posted, canonicity might trump all, for better or for worse.

Actually, it's quite early. I wasn't joking when I said /z/ is more active.

I personally have a (unusual) fixation for canonical details, but I'll still save stuff that looks good.


>Where do people submit their smut these days?
What type? Text? Image? Video? Furry? Hentai? Transformation?
There's at least three different places for everything. The tricky part is finding the first.

I don't know much about fics; I've only posted pastebins on 4chan threads. I know that some wikias for cartoons have pages for them.

Which reminds me, I want to promote my SFW videos (alternative humour, I guess) but I haven't been able to find specific communities of like-minded individuals, except for that one dead subreddit.

I plan for it to be a traditional text fapfic. In a perfect world, it would be a really well drawn doujinshi, but yeah. The fapfic I'm planning on writing is a Soul Eater (anime/manga source material) with the problem of it being centric on the pairing of Maka/Spirit. Spirit is Maka's father and Maka's age are duel problems that my otherwise fairly vanilla fapfic has. I heard that fanfiction.net had a purge of undesirable content and would rather not be on the receiving side of a purge. A pastebin or a tumblr would more or less me admitting defeat, as I would rather not use either because reasons. I'm also not planning on posting links on 4chan, as I don't want to post on /trash/ either. I will admit I haven't perused any of the NSFW boards in a long time. They might have a fanfic general for all I know.

Oh yes. I do remember reading that post about /z/ being more active than /draw/. It reminded me that /draw/ still exists.

As someone who posts copyright content on youtube and gets banned every so often on 4chan, I have no issue on having content removed. It's not good, but it's hardly an inconvenience to me. Heck, if the fic is well received, you might even get a Hydra effect going.
>A pastebin or a tumblr would more or less me admitting defeat, as I would rather not use either because reasons.
I understand aversion to tumblr, but have never heard of aversion to pastebin before.
>I'm also not planning on posting links on 4chan, as I don't want to post on /trash/ either.
/trash/ wouldn't be the right board either. Not sure about /a/ or /lit/ either. Fair enough.

I don't anime, so I'm afraid I can't help you out with this.

>>I still approach to it like a fine artist
Good. I don't see why people feel as if porn can't have artistic merits and values. Don't get me wrong, the video "xxx art" porn is usually crap (slow movements doesn't make something artistic), but illustrated porn tends to allow creators to attempt artistic compositions, especially since much of it uses characters from other art (comics and cartoons).

I don't understand how someone can be that angry about them, especially those videos. In fact, this is the second person to do it.

The quality of the comments clearly implies the writer was a young teenager (spammy, non-insulting insults, 'F's made of emojis), but nonetheless I don't see how someone can be made that mad by it. Did I disgrace their waifu?

So, after doing some research, I've come to the conclusion that the place I will be writing/posting my fanfics and smut will be archiveofourown.org

I haven't made a profile yet as I want to make it on a date that means something to me. Now that I have decided on a platform, now begins the slow process of putting digital pen to digital paper and writing shit down.

I like that. Personally, I have never intentionally picked a date to register on, but I am happy to look at my YouTube channel every so often and see:
>Joined Jan 1, 2013

Also, my third most popular video was released Jan 1, 2014. It's just those little things that make you feel better.

>archiveofourown.org
I always assumed that was just a text version of archive.org. Is that a fic-sharing site? Is it active?

>44101
It's a fanfic sharing site with a tag system and search feature. And more importantly for me is that it, for as far as I have seen, allows Lemon (sexually explicit) fanfics of various levels on it. It better be active with how many fanfics and writers are on the platform. I do recall some fanfics I found in the myriad of generals I lurk or have lurked on /co/ so it definitely has freshblood in it.
