>all this prudishness
>from an r34 board of all places
Jesus, this place makes even 4/hr/ look like a decrepit porn shack filled to the brim with dusty, worn down VHS and yellowed, sticky remains of magazines in comparison and that's saying something. Anyway, my personal pet peeves and why I hate them like I do:
>Characters that get over/under-represented in their respective sources
The Simpsons is probably the King/Queen at this. According to rule34.xxx, there are only 43 pictures of Mindy Simmons, 22 pictures of Lurleen Lumpkin and just 10 pictures of Laura Powers. Not exactly the most obscure characters in the world, they're actually fondly remembered by most. In comparison, Marge has over 2500, Lisa over 1200 and even fucking Milhouse, a non-main non-female character has more than 100. At least Edna has 200+, though the same can't be said for Miss Hoover at 36. Marge's sisters are repulsive yet manage more than 100 apiece. Of course there are more for those I've mentioned, but you shouldn't have to look. People should be drawing them on their own volition.
>Artists that run a gimmick into the ground so much it becomes predictable and actually detrimental to all future art they do with said gimmick(s)
Shad's hated by a lot of people for a lot of different things, but one thing of his that I absolutely can't stand is his insistence on relying upon the same shticks image after image for nothing more than cheap shock value. I used to think having some characters smoke made them look sexier, but when he draws a lit cigarette in the mouth of just about every fucking thing he draws, including characters that are supposed to be children, it starts to get stale quick.
>Mandatory genitalia blurring on all Japanese sauces
Seriously, that shit is fucking orwellian and it needs to stop. It's already destroyed 20+ years of what would otherwise be top quality OC, we don't need more of it.
>Artists who just fuck off one day and never come back
Least they could do is announce their retirement in advance. I couldn't tell you how many DA accounts just flat-out ceased to be beyond a Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
