      yeah if ppl want cool original art...commission an artist? i wouldn't even call NFTs original that's just an ugly picrew on random selection. all the apes are basically the same piece. my cousin will literally hand paint you a cool-ass one of a kind piece of art on canvas you can touch and put on your wall and literally no one else will own the exact piece. do i own the only painting of my dog in a bowtie on this planet? yes. and it's way more meaningful than an NFT and also it only cost me $30 not 30k. even comparing to other digital art, i commissioned artwork of my favorite dragon on flight rising and it looks sick as hell. also commissioning art has the benefit of giving money directly to an artist...also doesn't destroy the rainforest.

    the meta girlfriend thing is really sad, not because of the fact that lonely men and women alike buy them off with their valuable money, but because the nfts appeal to lonely lurker people. they’re using the ‘e-girl discord lonely mod’ thing against them so they can fall into the world of nfts. its hard for me to explain this but if you understand then you understand.

    Honestly, you could commission an actual artist to make you a custom woman character or buy an adoptable from an artist and it’s MUCH cheaper than those Non Flushable Toilets. And the quality is better too. Heck, you could even buy a ref sheet custom that includes a naked version as well.
    Not only will it be cheaper and a better quality than nfts. But that way you’re supporting an artist who could very much use the money.

    What offends me the most with NFTs is that people are willing to pay more for a drawing that is randomly generated from an AI and isn’t even unique (same pose, reused assets, unpleasant aesthetic) but will get angry when an artist asks for 20$ to make a fully custom art piece that is unique to them and made by an actual person who knows how to put elements together in a pleasing way.

    what people don’t seem to get about NFTs is that they aren’t art, or even masquerading as art. They’re “investment opportunities”. Some NFT projects promise to eventually make an actual good or service that will give their NFTs real value, and others just say “we’ll find a way to give our NFTs physical value later”. They’re selling hype.

    I saw the Blue Canvas and had a moment of clarity; I've seen one of these canvases in person. There's an entire series of them. It seemed ridiculous at first until I started looking into what was going on behind it and fell down the rabbit hole of chemically produced colors and how they affect our ability to perceive light and shadow, along with completely twisting our concept of true colors. The chemicals used give them different textures and distort light based on time of day. Super interesting stuff that I seriously doubt NFTs will be able to do on a similar level.

    I remember a couple of months ago a classmate of mine wanted to get me into the NFT world since I'm an artist. all I had to do was draw sum and he'd be the one selling the NFT, then we'd share the money but I had NO idea what an NFT was. all it took to reject his proposal was a 5 minutes long research. like I'm not even joking. at first glance it looked so shady especially cause the concept of an NFT can be so hard to wrap your head around so I rathered play it safe. plus i had a friend that knew more ab it and adviced and educated me. ik NFTs are a legal thing but it felt just...off. REALLY off. we are also both underage so you can already tell how unsafe doing this would've been
    personal advice: if you are an artist and would like to sell your art online you can always open a patreon account, take commissions etc. There are safer and far more environmentally friendly methods you can use if you want to gain money online from your art

    as a digital artist (drawing and digital paintings and stuff like that) it hurts to see these nft artists making so very much money from such low effort
    i think the ape nft looks pretty good on its own, I like the exaggerated style it's in. but then each nft is just such low effort, literally just throwing random premade pngs on a canvas and selling it for hundreds of dollars
    meanwhile I do a fully illustrated and a c t u a l l y unique drawing (as in I don't reuse any parts of my previous drawings) and get absolutely nothing. even on the extremely rare occasion someone actually commissions me (I've had them open for years but have only gotten 3 commissions, all of which were from friends) I'll get like. $30 for a fullbody fully colored and shaded drawing

      The problem is that NFTs have such a high carbon footprint that _isn’t necessary._ at least with figurines, the emissions are used to produce and ship the product from a facility to a customer, and there’s not a significantly cleaner way of doing it currently
      With NFTs and cryptocurrency as a whole, that energy is doing the GPU equivalent of being forced to work until you die from exhaustion, which doesn’t really justify the JPEG link being made

    Fun fact: NFTs can carry payloads and crypto "wallets" are pretty insecure. You do not need to accept if something enters your wallet, so people can drop stuff into your wallet if they know or guess. Pretty common thing to do is drop an NFT with a payload that transfers things out of someone's wallet and into your's.

    As an artist I always hated this NFT crap and my friends always tease me about it💀 They know they are bad but they just like to tease me cause it upsets me the most out of all of them. Honestly I feel like this also gives a really bad reputation to artists. It would be different to buy a commission (whether it is digital art or traditional art) because you actually get a drawing about something you asked. Like, for example, a character you created for whatever reason. NFTs thou don't even give you that, as it was said in the video. It pisses me off so bad💀 (sorry for any mistakes, I'm still getting used to speak English) (also, no, I'm not a furry💀)

    along with the enironmental impact, art theft, and toxic crypto bro environment, one of my biggest issues with nfts is how they devalue and pretend to be art. NFTS ARE NOT ART. yes an artwork can be minted as an nft but nfts can also be tweets, music and ticket sales etc. in other words nfts are not art but art can be an nft. thats why nfts can be ugly af or have litrally no effort involved bcoz people arent buying in for the value of art but the potential selling/trading value.

    When I first heard of nfts I was like oh dope artists can finally self promote without an art shows prestigious ridiculous fees and make money to live and support themselves, then literally a day later researching I decided I wanted nothing to do with them because those rich ass people buying the nfts are money laundering and writing off stuff in their taxes, I'd rather find those artists and buy a physical piece directly from them to help them earn money and sure it wouldn't be the 'millions' they could get IF their work went viral as an nft but it would contribute less to rich people keeping more of their money they don't need when others do, eat the rich.

      Right?? Like they could use that money go to therapy to learn why their relationships don't work, or how they project their insecurities, fears, and past trauma to their partner, ending up in fights and breakups. Not to mention on why they might drink or smoke too much, feeling the need for depressants and stimulants, despite their partners hatred for their viscous use of substances. Or a gym membership, invest in healthy eating, learn a hobby, get new clothes so that they have a wardrobe that wasn't bought by their moms from when they were in high school, take some college classes to get a better job, the list goes on. Why do any of that when you can just purchase a virtual woman that you pay to listen to you, who at the same time, perpetuates stereotypes about how women's bodies should exclusively look a certain, unachievable way and that our bodies only exist to look appealing. This honestly might be my tipping point. I am ready to leave this earth.

I mean I’m not saying they all view real women the exact same way but that raises some fucking massive red flags. like unpopular opinion here but I don’t care if you date anime girls or whatever. but buying them? to be entitled to exclusive viewing of their naked bodies? that’s weird. really fucking weird
