Life is chugging along! It's still a strange, strange world and I'm not letting it keep me down for too long. Much too think about as ever with so many things happening all the time. You all know.

Anyway, art's moving forward as much as ever. My main concern is still speed. Always, I am trying to find a faster way to do art without sacrificing quality too badly. I am probably overthinking things as usual. Overthinking lighting and being too precious with attempts to be accurate in rendering.

I'm still learning though. That never really seems to end.

Anyway, be careful. Safety first. 🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃

Random observation: The sidebar for "related media" on each media post isn't effective at catching peoples attention for relevant posts. The sidebar doesn't select contextually-relevant material anyway lol.

I think the reason that posting links to other gallery posts in your media's description is more effective is because of how people appear to actually use the site. They may not write a review, but users typically vote. So those image thumbnails are in-line with the scrolling.

Anyway! It's 2020. Good luck. Big challenges are coming.

As ever, please keep in mind that my content is aimed largely at 18+ users.

Art's been going well this month. See that on the Patreon if you're over 18 and stuff. Lots of weird adult-only stuff.

Some Toriel some Ankha.

More importantly, JPEGmafia's "All My Heroes Are Cornballs" came out finally and I enjoy it. Definitely a more lighthearted, fun album. Been listening to it a lot. Really didn't expect a No Scrubs cover to suddenly pop in, but that made me smile real big.

Really like listening to Free the Frail because that chorus? I might be misreading it.

But those lyrics make me think about art and the audience a lot. It fits in well with repeating the phrase You Think You Know Me.

People are gonna take the work, read it, and just by reading it? They change it with their interpretation. It isn't always bad. Remixes take the work out of your hands, too. Those re-interpretations that emerge through entire genres that rely on sampling, and if it's good, then it's good.

Anyway I really like the new album, and a lot of the production on the instrumentals(?) is really like. Misty. Almoooost tipping over from relaxing into haunted sometimes. This isnt a hollistic review of the album. It has so many different sounds I enjoyed lol.

I can't stop listening to JPEGmafia's new single "Jesus Forgive Me, I Am A Thot"

I didn't really like it on first listen but it clicked with me a lot every other time. Plus it makes me laugh hearing David Brine instead of David Byrne.

Jerma's a twitch streamer and some of his fans did a deepfake of him in a 2 minute scene from American Psycho. There are lots of moments where it's obviously faked, but way too much of it looked legitimate at a glance.

And to think that was the lazy joke.

It's both creepy, hilarious, and terrifying to think about how that technique will improve in the future when combined with facial recognition technology abuse.

I don't have a perfect grasp on the quality standards expected by The Art Portal, but it seems like one of the main expectations is full color presence, or fully illustrated.

I kept a few images off the art portal because I thought they were too sketchy, and I still stand by that? But I have a few images that are barely more-finished that I think would still be good enough to avoid being pulled by a moderator at a later date.

I don't know why I'm sharing this thought. I guess because I saw a few pieces of Frontpaged Artwork that I thought were borderline complete? But they still look good? So whatever?

Anyway, thank you for your attention and various means of support. I will continue to advertise my patreon (18+ only please, or I'll ban you please and thank you lol)

Patreon.com/snao 18+ only

I tend to post PNGs and different versions of work there, and more sketches.

It's a dollar a month unless you want to pay more to prove your insanity.

Tumblr refugee lmao.

I used to use this site when it started. Im so old. Holy frick. Like, I was worried it died when they posted some video clip from Freddy Got Fingered, and they sued Newgrounds offline for a while.

Uh anyway uh. Hi.

I have a lot of sketches and older work offsite that I dont think qualifies as postable onsite.

Your best bet to find up to date archives will be on https://www.weasyl.com/~naoki (must sign up to view 18+)


Patreon.com/Snao (18+ only) (it's only 1 dollar, and pay up front isn't turned on. That might change in the future, but it's a great place to look for stuff that aint on here.)


Here's my politics post: I'm a dirty commie. Marxism is Materialism. It's Realism. It's an understanding you got bills, a big loud mouth to feed, and some powerful dudes made laws that make paying my bills harder than it ever needed to be.

Give everyone free stuff to enable them to learn, build, and help others, and we'll all live our best lives.

Yehaw, I'll probably never talk about it on here ever again.
