Artist Talk Halloween Oreos 05/05/2019 (Sun) 22:06:03 Id:959507 No. 7404
I'm interested in the experiences of other people who have had a go at drawing BBW/weight gain art.
I always find myself pretty drained by it--like it provides a chemical rush, and afterwords leaves me feeling weirdly depleted for a couple days. My theory is that the act of drawing is like super-porn, and sort of depletes dopamine/serotonin levels or whatever.

I wonder if anyone else has experienced this and found ways of managing it. I can't manage to make more than a WIP without that mental recoil.
I am an artist and drew fatties a couple times before but haven't seriously drawn a project since I was a teenager because I am constrained by severe anxiety, bouts of despair and mass ritualization of my life wrapping me in a web of melancholic stasis haha
Honestly I can't relate. The most intense feeling I get is with jerking off itself and the climax that comes with it. I consider drawing moreso a buildup to that lol.

> I can't manage to make more than a WIP without that mental recoil.

That sounds a lot like artist's block to me. Anathema perhaps, but have you tried exercising or doing stretches? Not only would it help get your mind off things, it'll also give you some energy too afterwards.

Incidentally if that is your image, it's pretty good tbh. You have a good grasp on form and proportions at different weights, esp/w regards to the arms and neck (the latter a lot of people seem to have)
bump because this is a pretty good image from OP here
Thanks for the compliments, friends.

Whoops I hit reply before finishing my post. Not good at image boards...

>>7450
Yeah, good call. I think taking breaks is key. Any time I draw, NSFW or not, I get too obsessed.


>>7449
Aw man that's rough. May these fatties comfort you in your sea of despair.
>>7581
Happy to help. Love the girl on the left btw. The proportions here (especially the chin-neck area) are ON POINT, right in the unga zone for me

This thread deserves another bump tb h
Writer rather than artist, but I totally know what you mean. I've had a bunch of unwritten story ideas for years, and the hurdle for me has always been to actually complete the story rather than just writing for a couple minutes until I get horny and "finish early."

Lately I've finally been making progress by setting myself a timer and forcing myself to write rather than fap for 30 minutes, with the promise that I can fap immediately afterwards if I want to. By the time I've written for 30 minutes, I'll usually be in a groove where I'm focused enough on writing that I can complete a couple more hours' worth.

I know exactly what you mean about feeling drained afterwards. It's one thing to live in that highly charged mental space for a few minutes while I get my nut off, but actually getting to the point where I'm focused on it for several hours straight without release, with the level of clarity and concentration necessary to write a coherent storyline, is exhausting and a little disorienting once it's all over. Imagining a fictional reality with enough intensity that you can make it "real" in your chosen art form is a productive but energy-intense use of the human brain.

I agree with >>'s suggestion of doing stretches/exercise to decompress and bring you back to your body. In my experience, breath meditation also helps. Maybe try to set a schedule where you give yourself a day or two to decompress, then return to your work in progress with fresh eyes -- that seems to be working for me.

I also agree with the consensus in this thread: you're already quite good at this, and you should definitely keep drawing.

Oh I've been there brother. I'll get a really hot idea, feel pretty horny, get out my tablet and get to work. Then I either get impatient and just wank to the 1/2 finished sketch, or I'll be unsatisfied with my abilities-- either way I end up scrapping it. You got skills my guy, just remember to take breaks from drawing fat art every once and a while and clear your mind. (Also do you have a social media or anywhere else I can check out your art?, it's pretty good stuff. For scientific purposes of course.)

I've been waiting for nearly 2 weeks for this as well but still no idea who OP is.

Please come back to tell us my dude

The drawing process itself doesn't really exhaust me, it actually feels pretty invigorating when I successfully finish something. But there's a lot of aspects to being a fetish artist that slowly wear me out.
>Get depressed from always ending up viewing art far superior to anything you'll ever create
>Cannot really show off your work IRL to anyone who would actually like it
>Stressing about requests and/or commission deadlines
>Impostor syndrome from using references

Lifting weights regularly seems to help a little, but at least to me, that feels like a 2nd job instead of a hobby. And being a wagecuck on top of that, it feels like doing 3 jobs simultaneously. I'm a lazy fuck and just wanna play vidya and fap all day.

I like your art, OP - I hope you succeed in discovering a method that allows you to draw in a way that feels healthy.
I just tried my hand at sketching for the first time about a week ago when I was bored and I realized I'm actually not that bad at it? It's either easier than I thought, or I've just absorbed a lot of knowledge after looking at so much porn. I was expecting to make circle tool abominations on my first try.

It's definitely a rush, I feel like I unlocked some new power to make whatever porn I want, whenever I want. I also feel a sense fulfillment. It's addicting too, I can't stop sketching day and night. I'm not at any point where I feel drained yet, but I guess its coming.

Good for you! A lot of people think this ship has sailed for them because they didn't start learning the skill as kids, but that's definitely a misconception. Pic related.

'Then I either get impatient and just wank to the 1/2 finished sketch'

I've often wondered about whether the artists who draw fat girls wank to their own content, and your remark (and those of others) seem to confirm not only that they do, but also that their primary motivation might well be allied to wanking. I love wanking to all fat girl porn, but artwork provides that fantasy element that would be difficult, if not impossible in real life. The thought of all those guys like Trinity Fate, Jaykuma, Primesui and Kurocaze fapping like maniacs to their own work is curiously arousing...

"If I don't have an erection when I'm doing a drawing, I know it's no good" - Tom of Finland

Granted, this guy drew buff men instead of fat women, but I'd imagine a lot of artists of different fetishes use their own arousal as a measuring method

I don't do the art myself.

I do primarily photoshop, whether you call that an art form is your opinion because I wouldn't call it an art form.

I do morphs and I do edit other artists works to make the art even bigger, though I thought the editing of their art was disrespectful and I stopped. I wish I could draw but I don't own a tablet, and I don't know where I'd start with drawing fat women really.

With the photoshop, it isn't draining at all and it's really fun to experiment with things. Lets say a strap is on the belly, you can dig it in more to show how much the belly presses against it. It can be fun but a long work.
