Juka's Art Corner

The home of an ace genderfluid artist. I'm gonna set up commission stuff later, so for now just send me SFW requests and I'm always down for a collab!

On The Topic of Online Art Communities

chanceyreblogs -

It's difficult to be an artist, that much is clear. And with the evolution of social media and the fast paced world, competition and self doubt runs the show nowadays.Not to mention the algorithmic changes happening with every other social media lately, it's nearly impossibly to gather and keep an audience, this is why it's important to uplift eachother instead of relying on "followers". I know I put out this post so that I could find new artists to reblog and support, which I take very seriously and will try to the best of my ability to deliver.

However that won't solve the problem of unseen artists. One person showcasing art is good, however I think something that was wrong with the Tumblr community was the lack of support we felt for one another. Tumblr had a fantastic way to allow art to come directly from the source and be shared around and networked, Waterfall has the same unique feature that could cultivate a perfect supportive community. However we don't seem to care for one another anymore, even I am finding myself less likely to look for new artists or try to help others. Everytime a post comes around that says "artists supporting artists" I see people just dropping their own page, their own info on how to see their own art, but not looking at anyone else's pages/websites/portfolios. I've done it countless times, hell even on the post I linked above people just reblogged it, but not gone in to the notes to see anyone else's page.

Even during the renaissance, the new art motion, artists have been supporting eachother. Artists have always been connected to learn and grow from eachothe, swap ideas, mediums, foundings, etc. Social media nowadays seems to be like everyone is in a giant room, taping content on their section of the wall, but not walking two feet to the left to see anyone else's.

We need to put in the effort to support one another. I'm tired of friends and mutuals becoming insecure about their art because no one will support them.

TL/DR:

Spread love y'all, reblog art, look at other artists, use the searchbar and look at the tags ( #art #myart #myoc #artistsonwaterfall/tumblr/instagram)

You could even just click on the tags of this post and find a new friend, follow eachother!

Heyyo, it's Juka back at it again with some Starlight Brigade fanart. I used one of the frames in the animation to use as a reference pic for the pose, so I can learn to do better poses whilst still drawing one of my favorite characters. If someone could message me on how the credit text is ment to work since I don't know how to correctly use it, that would be pretty neat.

Have a great day,

Hi, this is my first post on this site. I saw the Starlight Brigade animation, and fell in love with it. At the time, I couldn't use a frame from the video as a reference, so I used another piece of fanart as a reference while adding my own stylistic aspects to it. I hope that Waterfall is better about using other's art for refernces than the other site is, since I am still learning how to do lineart. Have a great day,

-Juka

P.S. I first submitted this under the image tab, sorry!
