Furries and Commissions

On FA we all know that person who seems to have hundreds of commissions in their gallery and what not. I've always wondered how do they support their spending spree, because I sincerely doubt they're getting them for free. BTW, I HATE that watchers who upload their commissioned works seemingly can get hundreds of watchers while I and others have to toil away to get watchers. I really hate that.

Not really

One of my friends on FA, messaged me on skype today saying he was uncomfortable with all the faves and watchers he's getting cause he mostly does nsfw art.

So I ask him "Then if it makes you uncomfortable, why do you keep getting more, why not get some sfw art?"

He replies "I came to FA for the porn, I can't think of any good sfw picture ideas"

I mean at least he's honest he came to the FA for the porn but he shouldn't be surprised if his popularity surges, and he is getting art with some fairly popular furs.

What DOES my username mean...?
Yeah, i've always thought it was interesting that lots of furry *AHEM* "porn stars" aren't even created by their -what's the word?- "player". (??) Many "players" pay shit loads to artists to render their character(s) for them, pair them with other players' characters and so on. Half of these "players" don't draw their own stuff! Just look through the galleries of these particular "stars" and you'll notice that their galleries are full of art from other artists. For the life of me i can't think of any in particular because...well...they aren't my thing, but you guys (and gals) know who i mean. i can't help but picture these rich, posh furverts paying out triple digits to artists they like, plastering their sex dungeons with large framed prints. 'Cuzz let's face it, you've got to have lots of disposable income to pay for that much art! That or a fat disability check... *cough*
i wish i had loads of money lying around i could use to commission smut left and right! (not really, but disposable income sounds nice) :V

Furry logic

Draw the furry equivalent of the Mona Lisa and you'll get a few watches "hey, this is really good. You're such a talented artists".

Draw generic characters with massive wangs, muscular bodies and over the top facial expressions and you get tons of watches "omg dis is so hawt. Plz draw mowr!. I want teh see more of teh husky"

Face palm

I can't draw to save my life so I'm happy to let artists bring my Fursona to life, but I don't have endless income, I am very happy and ecstatic to get art when I can, and when I've gotten request art or even gifts I am truly grateful that people are even considerate of me.

I mean I have some pics...and more on the way *looks down* but fuck me, I worked hard to get 85% of those 201 watchers. I'd rather have 56 watachers who like me for my writing as opposed to 200 who just like the fact I post smut every now and then

It's all down to appalling the masses. Like you said, some people will watch you because they genuinely like you're art / writing style. However, more people will watch you because you're just another artist to give them their porn fix.

Sellout :V

I've had writing block for a while now but out of my 300 or so watchers about 10 of them enjoy my writing, even when I ask people to leave feedback they don't bother, only one or two people even comment and it just gets disheartening and it makes me think "I am a bad writer? Or is it simply, if its not smut they don't care, majority of FA is here for art not writing and even then they are here for porn."

But what if I like their art style and their porn?

Oddly enough I seem to get more watchers when I draw clean stuff as opposed to porn :/

Granted I don't draw porn very often but still

Yep yep yep. Probably one of the most baffling things that gets to me is how watchers who don't even upload that much get lots of views. A friend told me it had to do with commenting and faving pics...but how many comments and favs are you doing a day to get that many views on your page?

Oh and that one FA user who posts tons of...really bad art that look identical to each other. I really hope its some inside joke thing cause if he got those legitimately.. ugh -_-

There is this one dude who ONLY commissions macro art of Star Fox and Falco...I'm serious, that motherfucker has at least 200 uploads and 99% of it is Fox and Falco as giants fucking or doing other shit. I think he's a millionaire because there is no way he's getting all that art for free or as requests.

Every drawing of his 'sona (I'm guessing its the dog) is him getting fucked in the ass by a giant dick.

Not even a 'sona. Literally just a character he created to get stuffed with increasingly illogical amounts of cock (still super hot though).

So a fursona :v

I thought the dog was his actual fursona but his other characters are just there for porn fodder

As far as I'm aware, he doesn't have a 'sona. I've never seen Sea Slut Salt in anything other than porn.
