Where to start.. It's so much easier when you know where things began, so I'm just gonna jump somewhere in the middle and run from there.
Over the past year or so now you will have probably noticed quite a sizeable shift in the contents of my artwork, primarily the amount of NSFW artwork and... well, let's not beat around the bush... The amount of porn I've been painting. Now, okay as far as that type of artwork goes, it's alright, nothing to write home about but that's besides the point.
I'm afraid what's happened is that this kind of work seems to have taken over all of my art and it's only been very recently that the reality of it has hit me in the face like a huge, fat, lead brick. You know, REAL blunt force trauma stuff, the kind that only reconstructive surgery can fix. But anyway...
The point is that deep down, I kinda feel uncomfortable drawing this kind of stuff: it attracts the wrong kind of people and has completely derailed all of my other artistic ventures i.e. my CyberSally verse. I can't believe the last CyberSally story segment I did was LAST NOVEMBER!! (November 23rd 2013 to be exact). I've lost count of the number of times I've said I was going to start that back up again, only to draw yet another pair of tits. Like the internet has a shortage of that!
In the end, I lost focus on what it was people seemed to like about the stuff I created, I already know I've alienated more than a few of my watchers. Now most of you will probably be wondering:
"If it made you uncomfortable, then why on Earth did you draw that kind of stuff?"
Which is a good question when you consider that there was nothing wrong with the stuff I was doing in the first place. So the answer is essentially "I thought people would like it." And therein lays the problem. What started as a cheeky little curiosity turned into something of an attention seeking behaviour, because, you know, EVERYONE on the internet likes breasts! That's why they invented it, right?
But I stopped thinking about what I wanted to draw and started thinking about what other people would like to see. And therein, I made another mistake. People wanted to see more CyberSally, or at least things that were more thought provoking, as opposed to boner provoking.
I feel like I've become so much more vulgar than I used to be, I always said I wanted to do things tastefully. And then I went straight out of the window. I went down a path I really didn't want to go down.
I don't like it...
So let's see if I can fix that.
