I like stuff from emily artful! www.youtube.com/user/TheRetroF… Her watercolor paintings are relaxing to look at, and she doesn't talk about drama that much. (Its less negative community wise, and more focussed at for example scammers or Karen-type of experiences if its about drama.)
I personally don't like speedpaints with drama voice-overs when its about people and community, they turn up in my recommended.. I just want to watch the speedpaint, not hear negativity about an artist I have never heard of. Also, its kinda weird and I worry that it sounds mean: I can't handle it when people act out their voice in the ''kawaii'' tone just to get uwu vibes, ''uhm'' repeatedly, or yell ''excited excited'' 3+ times in the same sentence when its about art products (it feels like theyre hyping it up cuz sponsored.). Even if its not about art products, monotone ad-lib or scripted voice-overs are robotic and I can't handle singluar-tone talking. Its like someone is reading a phamplet to me while theyre trying to talk about their day or experiences.
(Might be just me on singular-tone, since I cannot handle tunes that do this either. Its like 2-3 tone taps that sound consistent and my brain goes brrrr plstop if I hear it. The pen tapping type of stuff.)
Last type of art videos I don't like are ''sketchbook'' tours that consist of solely hating on their child-selves. Maybe they used to love that, then why act grossed out by it now? Its not funny. Its like looking in the mirror and self-depreciating. You loved it once. Respect that version of you even if it makes you cringe. Look at it fondly, everyone was weird once.
My fav art youtuber is Khan Taya, www.youtube.com/channel/UC6YnU… her journey of growth is really nice. She started out being a bit more insecure in her videos, but has shown some personality growth and its nice to see that she's drawing more for herself finally. There's another guy who's videos I've slowly been getting into: www.youtube.com/channel/UCyjTt…
I like tabletop terrain videos, but occasionally I'll watch a review of some weird art supply. Oh, and you can't forget Bob Ross. I'd try some of his techniques and see if I could just go completely off the rails with them (lava world with 4 moons? Mars? maybe Earth, but palette swapped? hmm...) but I don't quite have all the materials I'd need and don't really want to bother with paint thinner. I have some oils, and I keep telling myself I'll try them at some point, but my acrylics are right there and I already have a feel for them.
Tbh for me it's pretty hard to find art related content on yt, but when I do I usually watch time-lapse videos and commentary videos on art stuff in general, I mostly love listening to podcasts while I draw.
