Jackie as in Jackie Estacado?
Dang. Image Comics is getting crazier than usual.
Hey, can we please start spoilering or saging some of these when we post them? I like bursting but sometimes I'm not ready to show up to the site and be bombarded with images of gore right off the bat.
Is that why his DeviantArt doesn't update anymore? Because he's just doing paid commissions instead?
Unless something happened to Jackie, then yeah, I mean the Darkness. (I could be wrong about who the Darkness is nowadays; I haven't paid attention to Western comics for ages, with one exception.)
No he seems to have vanished altogether, his last update unless one came within the last few days was July 1st. He's lost a ton of patrons from his inactivity, myself included.
There's just nothing, not even a "hey guys, had some problems, etc etc" update.
ship bitches right?
those deep sea monstrosities always gave me alien vibes
Wait he had a paid only patreon? Thought the patreon was just "give me money and ill keep posting stuff on dev art"
The trick to give my information to patreon then remove it with out paying doesnt work anymore does it
Yeah, he has a patreon. And I think he moved a lot of his stuff to it because asshats on DeviantArt were reporting his stuff and trying to get him taken down.
But, doesn't really matter at this point. He's totally vanished, and he's only got like 32 patrons left. At the rate its going, he will have 0.
Damn, I don't remember that picture being so overexposed. Oh well, I'd be hard pressed to find another version of it now that his old DA is totally gone. https://pastebin.com/u/rengoku
here's a pastebin with some of Invictus' old writing and some by other authors. Bursting stuff mixed in with plain pregnancy/birth.
What did happen to him anyway?, I remember one guy taking over his account and promising to run it. But then vanished as well.
Well, he got rid of his original account after some kind of problem with a significant other about it. Perhaps something similar happened to the second one. I never looked to deeply into it and I'm not really sure there's anything to be found.
was this even a burst birth? the liquid looks to light to be blood. looks more like she just died in childbirth
why is there no furry pregnant bursting thread?
I see, yeah, I don't think there is anything left to find really.
I think they meant more to imply it, given that whole scenario. But in a world of chest bursting monsters, I doubt it was gore that was the factor so much as effort.
I don't know, why don't you ask in the furry forum where it belongs?
Yea, he lost me too because of that. I was 100% down to support him, but there he posted for a month and vanished, in spite of the fact he was already pulling in hundreds of dollars from it. For reference, I post pretty regularly, and I still haven't topped $75.>>33407
That is a supremely sh*tty, slimy thing to do. Like, I have paid only content, but it's exclusively previews of unfinished content and stuff like voting incentives. I had more than a couple people pull that sh*t, and it really messed me up. Most artists would happily work for free, but we kinda also need to eat and have a roof over our heads and pay bills, and people doing things like what you do are why they start locking downright excessive amounts of content behind paywalls, (Looks pointedly at Komper…) if they don't stop posting free stuff entirely. As someone trying to make both crowds happy, my workload effectively doubles, and it's exhausting. Someone talking so cavalierly about how you just casually ripped off other artists jim-jams my flim-flams. >:(
Thank you for the compliment, I enjoy writing the burst stuff. Hopefully, you'll find the spooky month of October to your tastes. ;)
Personally, on my end, because I haven't found many good bursting pictures with furry victims. But if you have them, by all means, I would suggest boppin' on over to the furry thread and starting one of your own. I'd love to see if there are any good examples of it! :D
Yeah, it sucks that he vanished like that. I really like his art. What gets me is the complete and utter vanishing, most artists I see who have problems where they can't follow through on their work at least let you know.
I wanted to commission some bursting art of my favorite characters from him too. Oh well.
And really?, only 75$?, I've seen your stuff around. I would have figured you would be pulling in more then that.
I mean, at first he disappeared for a while because he got a job somewhere. But then apparently that didn't work out, so he came back to the art scene and announced his patreon.
There was one update where he mentioned that life was hectic, but he'd be posting for the next week straight. He then posted for three days and vanished without another word. From what I've seen, a lot of fetish artists tend to abruptly poof out of existence, though whether it's due to contempt for their audience or moving on to better things and not caring enough to inform them, or they get in trouble with relationship stuff is beyond me.
And yep, actually $60 at the moment. And I think part of the reson why is because of exactly what you said. You see most of my stuff around. I post all my stories through the regular channels for free, and I offer peaks into unfinished drafts and things that I'm not sure are complete or not. But as far as donation incentives go, that's not very much for the avrage person. I'm really mostly relying on people liking my work, and realizing that if I don't make anything to do it, it's going to be harder to continue. But this is the internet, and relying on human compassion is considered foolish. *shrugs*
Yeah, I remember that initial vanishing. He came back and suddenly went into a flurry of activity, even held a vote for babe of the week. Was kinda sad to see Aisha ClanClan lost that poll.
But, not much can be done. He's bleeding patrons, probably will hardly have any by the time he decides to show back up if he does.
And tell me about it, in my day to day life with the stuff I run I have a patreon myself. Not a single person has shown the slightest interest in it.
Hey, Much Birth, I wanted to thank you for using one of my pics for the OP! :D
I'm sorry about your struggles with Patreon, I've had my fair share of them too. I shouldn't complain too much, since I've been hovering around $200 a month for three months now, but I have a $250 goal set and it feels like we're less and less likely to meet it. But I'm a visual artist so I can't imagine what its like for you as a writer, which is a shame because I think writers are super underappreciated in our community.
As for Mpregnator, I heard rumblings of his most recent disappearance through a friend and mutual patron of ours. It feels like yet another instance of a creator biting off more than they can chew. As you mentioned, patron incentives are very tricky. On one hand, you don't want to overwhelm yourself, but on the other, you need something to bring people in. Thats really what I've been struggling with.
Hey if you don't mind me asking, are you gonna continue that Archer comic you were doing?
Awesome I can't wait. But yeah sometimes the best method is to be unconventional, more fun that way.
Like when I used to write stories, I would start at the end first and work my way backwards. Cause if I knew where I wanted things to be, deconstructing the events that lead to that would be much easier.
Oh goodness, I'm sorry, I forgot to credit you! :'( That was inconsiderate of me, I apologize.
As far as my patreon struggles… I don't want to complain too much, this is the path I've chosen, and I didn't think I'd be pulling in Jim Sterling levels of income off of birth smut. But I admit to being somewhat disappointed with the lack of interest shown. I understand times are hard for everyone, but… yea.
As far as writers being underappreciated, there's no doubt that I seem to be a back-up plan when someone can't get anyone to draw their half-baked idea on the cheap, or some sort of RP bot. But I don't know, others seem to genuinely enjoy the effort I put forward. I think the big problem is that people don't want to put forth the effort of reading to get their goodies, as it were. Too much work, too much thinking. And, you know, to each their own, but it just sort of bums me out. But I make effort to encourage more writers whenever someone comes to me with a solid idea, so hopefully there will be more people writing my style of goods before too long. :3
And yea, man, that's rough for MPregnator. That's something I constantly fight against, is burnout. You want to make the fans happy, but you NEED to make the people keeping you fed happy, and you end up effectively doubling your workload. It gets bad fast, even having my bi-monthly high-donor story can end up taking more out of me than I planned because it adds a third task to what's already two lists. I'm sorry to hear he did that to himself, but at the same time… you gotta respect your own limits. When I saw what was on offer, I knew it couldn't last. :(
Also, omg I love your bursting work, it's so good, I hope to see you do more. :D
This is an excellent, fresh piece by Lusty38 on DeviantArt. There's no visual of the little cutie actually bursting through, but it's definitely implied. Please, bombard them with commissions for more deadly babies if you have the money, let's get more bursting goodness!https://lusty38.deviantart.com/art/Suki-Xenomorph-Belly-Loop-707785020
For what it's worth, there's definitely a subset of people who prefer writing to images, myself included. You're a bit of a light shining in darkness for me, because I feel like the good bursting content creators have been dropping off over the last few years. Your stuff rocks and I hope you get the support you need to be able to keep it up.
And honestly your underage stuff has turned me onto a whole new aspect of this fetish so I also have to thank you for that, controversial though it may be.
I'm glad it's not just me that's felt like there are way less burst artists or writers in general anymore, or at least a ton less dealing with actual pregnancy being the catalyst to it. I've seen inflation bursts and even explosives, but that's just guro, and surprisingly I'm really super-duper not into that. The ones that ARE still doing alien pregnancy usually seem to not quite be masters of their craft yet, to put it kindly. Which, you know, that's fine, but the landscape has gotten pretty barren. But I'm glad I can serve as a bit of an oasis in the drought, and give people the sort of fix they crave. :3 And, of course, I'm glad you like my work.
I'm always thrilled to hear positive feedback about the Forbidden Archive. It's such a risky thing for me to do, but I KNOW there's an audience for it, just people don't like to admit it because of taboos. But I'm glad you discovered it, and I'm glad you enjoy it. I honestly wish more people would be willing to confess that. :)
love it,everytime i see drawings like this it makes me think of specie 2 my all time favorite bursting moment in a movie.
Oh no need to apologize! I'm just glad to see people sharing my stuff on a chan board. Most of the time, I'm the one who shares my own stuff haha>>33963
Yeah, I'm definitely in that subset, too. If I'm gonna get my rocks off, I've got to have a good story or two to get there.
Also, if I may have a shameless plug for my Patreon here… the pic I attached is a page from a planned sketchbook art pack (along with plenty of other packs) I'd like to release once we reach $250 over on my patreon, https://www.patreon.com/home
Was recently enjoying some of Much Birth's stories and it got me thinking about the origin of my fetish. After doing a little digging, I found something specific that I remember turning me on in regards to this. Not human and not art either, but maybe could be inspiration for an artist or writer. The natural world is a hell of a thing.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smD6ijXeW4Y&feature=youtu.be&t=2422
Also, you'll have to excuse the cringe narration.
Bump for the save.
