Joke/Shock/gross-out Artists

Status
Not open for further replies.
In recent dates I have been browsing the Sonic Adult section and I have found a disturbing number of joke, shock, and gross-out pictures, many by the same artists, like SchistSlag and the like. I am concerned about this in that these disgusting images are EXTREMELY close to trolling in my opinion, since they are designed to elicit a negative reaction from those of us who wish to browse the section to see legitimate artwork. I understand the whole "if you don't like it, don't look at it" concept, but the sheer number of these gross-out submissions in recent dates, even today for example, has begun to crowd out the images from those legitimate artists. This problem does not just apply to the Sonic Adult section, but the Babyfur Adult section and several others. I humbly request that the mods would take a look at this issue, because I have heard from many people who agree with me that the joke art has gotten out of hand. Thank you.

If I can get stuff banned that I don't want to see, can we ban Sonic art?

See, that's your problem -- You're looking for Sonic porn.

As of the time of this posting, six out of the most recent pieces of artwork in the Sonic art section are joke/gross-out/or troll art.

C'mon, this is a legitimate issue. And it goes beyond Sonic porn. I've browsed enough adult-themed artwork to see some crazy shit I wish I had some brainbleach to deal with.

We should at least get a "Fetish/Hard" category like fchan's "Alt(Hard)" section to cover the truly disgusting stuff.

Fchan is a joke of an imageboard because of the OVERMODERATION. As much as I hate 4chan, they show how to do an imageboard correctly without drama.

Anyway, the last thing FA should do is try to imitate Fchan.

I think it goes even beyond that since it's not about it being fetishy, but designed to troll or posted for the "lulz" rather than for the appreciation of other people...

And for all the other people who have posted, just because you don't like it doesn't mean that others agree with you. This is a community issue since legitimate artists who want their artwork to be seen are getting pushed aside by jerks who simply want to get an angry or silly reaction out of folks. Please don't post here if you don't care about this issue, but this is an honest plea for help from the moderators. I'm not asking for bans or for anything in particular, I simply want the mods to take a look at the issue to see what could be done to help.

Ya know, I've actually found some really great artists to watch from people posting their "joke/wtf" artwork.

He doesn't really post as much any more, but that's exactly how I discovered ChimeraSynx. I've also used that as a method for getting followers.

People like weird things. Trufax.

OH MY GOD, YOU'RE OVERREACTING.



...Seriously, if you're not going to contribute anything useful, sod off.
Did you even read the forum rules? You can't be posting porn dude.

I just wanted to warn people who are using public computers.
 
OH MY GOD, YOU JUST POSTED SONIC PORN.

Or maybe the artists that use sonic-style are THAT BAD.


Please, I ask you kindly, don't start a flame war here? I'm simply trying to get a response on an issue I care about, and this type of thing will only lead to trouble. I'm simply asking for the moderators to examine an issue, and I wish to try to keep the drama out of this thread. Thank you.
 
Oh yes, I keep forgetting how horrible Sonic style artists are. It's an art style. Like DCAU's Timm-style art, or Fred Perry's Animanga style. It has nothing to do with skill or not.

Because I know I've seen some truly horrendous non-Sonic art on FA.

I see it as a horribly lazy style, myself. They all look exactly the same to me.

And it's already been stated, but you're just wasting your time trying to get moderator action on this.

There's your problem. You're looking at sonic "art".

Boohoo if someone made an artistic submission and it's properly labeled as sonic. You aren't forced to look at it either. Be more wary of what you click on.

Is that supposed to be an example of good sonic art? I see standard linework and below-par shading.

The concept of "sonic artists" is a joke to begin with. I suppose sonic is a valid style, but to devote all of your artistic endeavors to mimic it? Pathetic. I could see maybe one or two pictures in the style to pay homage or have fun, but otherwise it's just regurgitating an artistic canon. Artists should be learning realism and then stylizing that realism in their own creative ways.

I'm not talking about mislabeled art, I'm talking about pictures that are intentionally posted into a section, but are designed to be disgusting or to troll. If this topic were just about any other topic than Sonic, there would be none of this drama here.
