Happy Holidays!
Uboachan Dream World MUD is back up. The issue stems from DennisMUD not being able to update its SSL cert without being restarted manually. A fix will be investigated, see GitHub Issue #115.

Hi, I'm a hikikomori artist and long-time uboachanner, but I took a long break from the imageboard to pursue my art, and now that I've noticed there's a "creepy-cute" board, I thought I'd share some of my work. It may be exactly what this board likes to see 0u0

I started doing art as an outlet for the things I've had to endure, mostly the early childhood stuff. My hope is that it speaks to someone else, so that they feel a little less alone in their suffering. After settling on a style, I've made a tiny amount of money off it, but not enough to live off of. No one has ever commissioned me, and that's probably for the best. I'm sure I'd disappoint anyone who did, and no one will want to because my style is too juvenile-looking.

But that's kind of the point. I started working almost exclusively with crayons from the very beginning. This is both because I got used to them being the only medium available when confined to hospitals at many points in my life, and because they lend a childish tone and texture to anything you might draw with them. That tone and style is important to me because of what the art means to me, so I don't really want to tweak it much, but I wonder if I should…

A little context, 4 years ago, I was diagnosed with schizophrenia and dissociative identity disorder, and because it's been difficult to get my medicine recently due to homelessness and hunger, I haven't been doing a lot of drawing lately, but I hope that sharing these maybe generates some positive feedback that will encourage me to stay diligent as an artist. After all, it's what's kept me alive all this time, and has been an excellent tool in expressing my different identities' feelings, thoughts, appearances, and dreams.

I was on /hikki/ for a bit as well, and I mentioned moving in with my family, but it looks like that might unfold poorly for me at this point if I try. They have repeatedly failed to express interest in my life and the lives of my alters, and have offered zero help over the past year, even when I was facing down having to sleep outside. My sister is a liar, and her friends are insensitive at best, and downright bullies at the worst of times.

I've lived in many places, but so far I've wanted nothing more than to return to New England, where I grew up, despite my childhood being horrifically traumatic. I just want to go somewhere cold that has fresh seafood if nothing else, because the South is heating up and rapidly becoming uninhabitable for any kind of human being, especially transfeminine people like me.

Thank you! I'm so so happy you understand the aesthetic choice of wax crayons as a medium! People don't often look at my art twice to figure it out, they just see unremarkable fridge drawings made by an 8-year-old (albeit an 8-year-old that might be a little disturbed lmao). At any rate, if you liked Shizako then you might like the first three here. The Teeth and Death Of A Soldier are both acrylic paintings, like Shizako's, and the Figure In The Fog is a collage made from parts of photographs from one of Time Magazine's "Most Haunted Locations" editions. 0u0

You're right to like him. He is a benevolent force in Yoona's life. He is her hallucination of an old imaginary friend, twisted by psychosis, but despite his appearance, he wants nothing more than to protect and advise Yoona at her most vulnerable moments. 0u0

Anyway, here's a new drawing I did today of Alek, a contractor who works for the Daemon of Music, Sonya, affording him an arsenal of spells in the form of otherworldly melodies that have the power to maim, kill, create, and heal in exchange for vanishing some of Alek's blood. The more blood given, the stronger Sonya's spells will be. 0u0

You mean as in it's relatable, or just that you like doing it for no particular reason?

I think as a coping mechanism it's not very good, because it positively reinforces self-destructive behavior, not just that of self-injury. It makes you associate doing something to harm yourself with the emotional relief that comes afterward, so it can easily get out of control if you're doing it to escape from trauma or suffering.

Either way, I hope you're okay.

I guess the 2nd edge to the sword of having found your audience is that they're all mental too (it makes sense that art speaks to people similar to the artist), so they don't have the energy to spend worrying about you. In my opinion that's good though, being able to sap an aesthetic sympathy from people has only made me weaker while being unable to has let me reshape myself into someone who wants to be strong. The planes when you dig up to the surface look barren at first, until you realise up here there's unlimited potential. That's my experience of life anyway. T. madman who likes your art, especially the less human ones like agony district.
PS. How did you make money off the art if not commissions?
PPS. Any tips for working in crayon?

>>400
Reaching mentally ill people was one of the primary goals of doing my art, actually. As for how I made money before commissions (which have actually started rolling in finally these last two weeks 0u0), I was selling prints for cheap because I was dating a man who worked at a print shop and could produce them at no cost to me. I no longer have that resource, so I'm just doing commissions now for a base rate of 12 dollars, 15 if the design is complex or has a detailed background.

As far as tips go, the primary thing most people struggle with is the dullness of wax pastels and crayons. A good way to avoid this is to buy a lot of crayons, and sharpen them frequently whenever you need a crisp, dark line. The sharper the point of the wax, the darker and thinner the mark will be. Going over lines more than once can help with this as well, but may thicken them if your crayon is dull. To sharpen crayons, I use a pencil-sharpener that has a wide-angle opening like the larger aperture in this pic, which will fit a standard size crayon or wax pastel.

The second thing people struggle with is what to buy. I use professional wax pastels for important colors that need to be high quality, like black and white, or any that don't appear in a standard crayola lineup, like blood red or deep indigo, while using Crayola colors for any other pigments I might need, just to save money. Neocolor's white is very good at smearing crayon wax to create the effect like in this commission I just finished (the bridge over the canal). Finally, if you desperately need to cover a large area with a dark color like black, the giant art crayon is your friend. The wax is much softer and thus goes on much darker, much quicker. Be careful about smudges though, because the higher quality pastels are meant to be blendable, unlike the Crayola ones. (They are VERY greasy 0u0;;;)

Correcting mistakes is also a common complaint with the medium, as it isn't easy. Provided you use thick toothy paper like you should, if you make a mark you don't want, the best thing you can do is scrape a little of the paper fibers away with a very sharp knife to reveal the clean ones underneath, and then make your mark again properly. This isn't useful for scraping away large mistakes, and will never yield a completely blank surface, as it grinds some of the pigment in. So make sure you've sketched everything in pencil before you start using the crayons!

Finally, this tip isn't so much about drawing itself as it is presentation, but whenever I scan my work, I make sure to color-correct it and darken all the blacks and midtones, maybe raise contrast and deplete saturation too, if the mood calls for it. (Crayola colors are almost all very saturated and not too versatile, so often this final step is needed for a presentable final product as a work of art.) I hope this helps you, and again, I am deeply grateful that my art has inspired you and is welcome here.
