Not just recently but in all these years where i uploaded drawings online, people tend to think that I am a girl.udging by my work xD
I already accepted that, because I know even tho I am rarely drawing explicit content I have some yaoi/bishonen aesthetics in my style, which is often proclaimed to be
something from and for a female community.
Definitionwise my work would be bara though, since neither am I a woman, nor do I only want to appeal to woman...

The term bara often contrasts with yaoi, which is gay male media usually made by heterosexual women to appeal to other heterosexual women. Whereas bara typically emphasizes masculine homoeroticism and frank explicit sexual situations, yaoi typically emphasizes the androgynous bishonen aesthetic and depicts emotional romantic relationships.
Nevertheless, if you would ask me, I would rate my work more yaoi because bara has a certain code and accents that my work won't deliver.
But it gets weirder. I always thought people assumed that because they know my manga work, but no xD there were a lot of people just knowing my realistic portraits and I wondered how do people come to these conclusions...
I often catch myself assuming the gender of artists, but actually often jsut end up to think most artists are female just by experience, since around 90% of art students at my Uni are girls as well as artists on german conventions.

So is it really style or just common to think most artists are girls?
Do you know more male or female artists/ does it matter to you in a way?
It certainly has an effect though....
I often find it strange to take the artists gender and to deduce the audience. the definition of BoysLove/Yaoi always bugs me a bit: that people say yaoi was only/mainly created by girls for girls....
like sometimes I think if people see my work, they might assume that I am a girl and thus feeling excluded because then "it apparently was created for girls" just because of stupid definitions
I also guess that not all female bishonen artists etc. only draw for a female audience

But enough of my thoughts, just had to get it out of my head, and since it's been a while, why not write a deviantart journal xD
Sorry for all the typos :'D

Heey,
I really like your kind of art. I just recently found you on deviantart, but followed you a long time on Youtube.
I'm not really familiar with deviantart, but today I submitted my first piece of art. I've always been kinda insecure about posting my art online. But well, one day must be the first day.
And well, I would make a great deal for me if you just checked it out once.

Keep up the good work!

An art style is genderless, you do not assume who is behind it. You admire it instead, the bonus on Deviantart is the Journals where you get to know the artists them selves.
