Apples and oranges dude. The first one was made by an austist with no prior experience in one application. This one obviously has skill and talent and probably used more than one app. What kicked it for me was 4-years on weekends. One thing they have in common is they realy show how much of a cesspool of procrastination /ic is.
not available in burgertopia, thanks for nothing.
Yeah isn't that insane pistachio girl doing something like that?
they're not movies but the short films by the students at calarts are pretty neat

This thread is meant for artists who might want to try to make anime works in-between their studies. It is strongly recommended that you use this thread in conjunction with learning the elements and fundamentals of art. You can also discuss the visual elements of various professional artists as well if you keep it relatively articulate and civil.

Submit your drawings, receive feedback or critique others! Share your knowledge and remember to thank those who've critiqued or red-lined your drawings. Most importantly, have fun!

Remember to do from imagination from time to time guys.
Don't always rely on references you may not always have at hand

completely false

most people who only draw from reference can only draw aesthetically unpleasant drawings from reference. you at the very least need to do life drawing to avoid that photo collage look

it depends on what you want to draw specifically. if you want to do a kind of comic art you need to draw like they do.

>completely false
>you at the very least need to do life drawing to avoid that photo collage look
>implying what you learn from life drawings isn't a reference

Most good comic book artists use references. Not enough references equals same face and generic anatomy.
What are the origins of this maymay? Did he try to draw something from imagination? Any links?
Yes, he tried to on his stream, and he failed miserably. Sorry, I don't have pics.

Don't worry about it.

Most of it is the repetive shit you can say about any drawing without even looking at it and to anyone from the worst pleb to the highest masters

Genuine question here: is copying master's drawings actually that good for learning?

I just don't see how it differs from drawing from like, since most times they're that good; what could they possibly teach you that you couldn't be taught some other (probably better) way? Say light, how is copying a master drawing going to teach you about how light works better than reading a book about light and doing a series of life studies and value exercises?

I just don't see it. Very curious about this since people make it out to be a big deal.

Is drawing from your shoulder a meme?

enjoy your carpal tunnel fuckers
I am physically so weak that I can't draw from my shoulder, what do I do?
masturbate more, but put some back into it.
When I started I could barely hold my arm up as well, but with time you get used to it and it gets really easy; it doesn't take that long, to be fair, I was already good after a month (I don't workout either.) Do drawabox exercises with your hand hovering over the paper, NEVER TOUCH IT, and you'll quickly get better at it.

If you are pivoting on your elbow, you are drawing on your should.
Your elbow can only bend or extend and twist the forearm.
There might be some small extension in the elbow when drawing at times but I really, really doubt you are basing your whole method on drawing from the elbow.
When people say the elbow they really mean the shoulder, but it feels like it's the elbow because they pivot on it.

What causes a once great artist to get lazy and the art they makes takes a hit? Do they stop practicing?

I'm only using this image as an example, as it's a perfect example of what I'm talking about.

Forgot to mention; pic above is one of his slightly earlier comics, before this sagging-face-syndrome hit full force.
Is that a female with a dick?
Rough conceptart for the latest tombraider game was done in 4-8hours, finished illustrations done traditionally for Little Witch Academia were done in what I would estimate to be similar (the only example being a 9hour illustration done for the documentary). In some cases time was gained, in others not.

You talk about lacking nuance and I understand that you've made exaggerations to emphasis your point but like you say, there is more at play here.

Looking at the animator storyboards and seeing what they convey as a sketch I don't think that the time spent to find something to trace and then tracing would improve their workflow. If anything it would act as a hinderance to what they have in their mindseye UNLESS they start from the reference in a way that Asano Inio works.

I really don't know how to approach your thinking, all the more so if I make the assumption of equal skill between both artists because part of what makes a good artists image work will be how they view or stylise things, and if their fundamentals are at a high level then for pose/anatomy/composition what use is the photo to trace? I can understand having a template or reference if your work is more grounded I just see little value in tracing, if you're good you're also fast enough at sketching whereby its not useful - you can pull details from an environment like placement of key objects or set dressing but outside of that I don't see it being twice as fast for those that are skilled artist.
Why do so many western comics look like a shitty rotoscope or a redraw over actors? It's uncanny as fuck and weirds me out. Maybe it's just me but I can't stand western stuff because of it.
I'm pretty sure it's just a guy with tits.

You can tell where the watercolors come from? Fucking quit being an artist right now, because you're never gonna make it. In the art scene, at least: go get a fucking degree in criminology or some shit, because the FBI needs your perceptiveness.

Get the fuck off of /ic/, nigga, you got a higher calling.
Amazing!!! :D

I give it a -12/10

go to the beginner thread
start with learning 1,2, and 3 point perspective, download a pdf of scott robertsons book "how to draw" after going through "perspective made easy" (another pdf)

Once you've fully understood, and can draw 3D objects competently, download a pdf of another scott robertson book called "how to render" and follow the lessons till you understand them.

get "figure drawing for all its worth" by Andrew loomis and follow the lessons until you understand them.
Where are all these individual rate threads coming from these last couple of days? It's like a reddit invasion going on here.

This is neat anon, might want to try add a few in-betweens or rough up the lines to convey more movement as the camera turns.

This ending sequence has some absolutely beautiful moments of sakuga.

for how crappy the prequels were, I think tpm was the best of the three, and the cg holds up surprisingly well for how old it is. just goes to show how much passion and excitement was behind the design team and animators and artists at the time.

Very creative and cute, though as a disembodied head for all practical purposes I suppose it's a little on the safe side. I like the concept and how the angular forms of her "tail" and hair tie together. Those subtle, simple gradations on her clothing are also fantastic.

For what it is it's more or less flawless. You could consider thickening the eyebrow seen on our left very slightly to make it more congruent with the one on the right-not necessarily because what you have is incorrect-but simply to make it appear less congested by its own outlines which are converging in on themselves. The angle of where the eyebrows terminate near the "keystone" appear to be a slight departure from one another. Also with her face turned slightly to the viewer's left I can't help but feel the little "cheek" suggestion at the edge of the mouth would look better on the opposite side to kind of give the impression of an overlapping form.

Well done!

Having a break.

Is Alphonso Dunn a good source for learning how to work with pen and ink? I haven't been able to find any artist or book that goes into detail about the process.

Also helped me improve. Negativity is everywhere. If your can't discern or decide things on your own, you deserve what you end up with. Be an individual.
I can't speak to his book since I haven't read it but Rendering in Pen and Ink by Arthur Guptill's a good one.

His videos seem alright. He's not on the same tier with pen and ink as the other mentioned in the thread(Frazetta, Gibson) but as a starting point he's fine.
/ic/ isnt a hugbox, but it is a bucket of crabs
Photos of drawings with the pen or pencil laying on he paper make me cringe ...lets you know right off the bat the art is YouTuber time lapse tier
As in? I've never had anyone actually try to stop me in doing something that wasn't already stupid.
