Playing With Fire
Oops I forgot to upload this here. Commission for anon.
Because it is challenging, and as an artist I enjoy taking on new things that are out of my regular comfort zone in order to improve and hone my skill.
Porn isn’t my top favorite thing to draw, I much rather draw cute things or purely romantic/loving things for the most part in terms of intimacy, but I already know how to make cute chibis and such really easily without too much effort. Which puts me in a place where I’m not learning anything by making them, which is bad. To me art is a constant learning experience. I try to learn something new from each thing I make, and it gets harder to learn from drawing the same old things over and over!
Another reason why I draw it is that there is a market for it- and a big one, which is extremely important to my career as an artist. People indulge in art in many forms and quality pornographic art is very popular and sought after. And more people are willing to pay fairly for this kind of art too, unlike most people on places like Deviantart that complain about a $5 sketch being “too expensive” or “not worth it”.
So to me, it’s completely worth it to draw it, there are no downsides. Because it’s a challenge and can be fun, and I usually get more commissions and interest in such art, and the people that request these kinds of commissions respect my pricing and trade and view it as worth their money.
The societal stigma behind porn skews people’s perception of its value and I admit when I was younger I also thought it was terrible, but as I grew up I realized its importance and niche and how enjoyable it is to make.
Art is meant to be enjoyable and invoke feelings in viewers! And pornographic art is no exception, is it not? It might even invoke the most feeling and enjoyment, haha.
Meowstic are known for their stoic expressions but I’m sure even they are unable to keep a straight face whilst in the throes of passion :>
