Can we get a herm thread going?
4chan pass is really worth the money.
I'm living paycheck-to-paycheck as it is. All the spare dosh goes to getting the girlfriend nice things.
Maybe I'll put some money aside next time.
questions that need answers
why are these artists not out making actual comics for image or marvel/dc ?
or are they?
making shitty animal porn comics seems like career suicide doesnt it?
or do something of these artists work on real comics?
dont tell me they just work on commission ... or maybe they do
There's surprisingly good money in making niche porn. I'm sure they enjoy the subject matter as well.
Part time internships are good, but don't pay nearly as much as full time industry employment post-graduation.
Most of the well known good artists charge hundreds per page. If you are good, you can make a living on it easily.
A lot of them do have day jobs as well.
Some of them work on commission, some of them actually are employed by smut publications (like ClubStripes and Slipshine).
The number one reason is really obvious though. The same reason why some indie game developers like Toady put thousands of man-hours into developing incredibly complex games that they give out for free. Because they like it. They have a talent they can use to make people happy, and they have fun with it in the process. What is wrong with a hobby, even if it involves smut. And porn isn't as "career suicide" as you might think. The guy who made Lilo and Stitch does smut. Almost every japanese manga and anime artist has done porn.
It's not wasted talent if the person making it is enjoying himself (or herself, in many cases, like this comic itself), and the people reading it like the work.
wow... i think i need to change my business plan ...
curl -s $THREAD | grep -oE '<a class="fileThumb" href="//i.4cdn.org/[^>]+' | grep -oE 'href="[^"]+' | sed 's/[^\/]\+\/\///' | xargs wget
Either replace $THREAD with the thread URL, or put it in a shell script where THREAD="$1".
