Because we should not have to make new threads or post in draw threads with our fundamental exercises.
Feel free to post even the smallest exercise you have done to show you are still trying, do not give up, make your mom proud.

AVOID asking unrelated questions, there is a question thread for that.

RESIZE YOUR IMAGES TO ~1000 PIXELS:

#1)
>screenshot the image and post that instead (also images shouldn't come out accidentally sideways with this method)

#2)
>change camera capture settings to something smaller

#3)
>send to computer and resize in MSPaint

Figure is not half bad, although the pose is stiff as fuck and your hand are a bit off. All the baggy clothes try to hide poor construction, i guess.

The head is the biggest offender though.

This book came out in 1999. Any good how to draw anime books written before then?

Particularly, I'd like to learn to draw manga and anime in the 1960s and 1970s style- the Osamu Tezuka era.

If you watched anime every season, you'd understand the subtleties and how different each style is to each other.

Just this season, we had Mob.

Ok, so

Back in the 80/90s you had fewer shows and more OVAs, many of which were unrelated to the TV anime. As you can see from the chart, there was less TV anime in the entire year of 1990 than there are in a season now.

But anime is still a niche genre, and these studios are all competing with each other to appeal to a niche audience, so there's less room for the experimental and unique stuff of decades past.

That's my theory, anyways.

You do, but its like Shin-Chan. Dragon Ball and Doraemon, mostly stuff for kids similar to how we use Batman or Charlie Brown for ads and stuff.
Anime is still seen there as for kids only, even with the artistic freedom for the genre in there

The fact that you're making this thread and saying you'll do inktober only if someone with dubs says yes shows that you don't really want to do inktober because if you did you wouldn't make this retarded thread, you would just start drawing.
Because you obviously don't care about drawing something with ink everyday for a month even if someone did get dubs telling you to do it you're not gonna do it.
Change your mindset, stop lying to yourself and figure out whether you actually want to do inktober and think how you're gonna manage your time and discipline yourself to actually do it.

I agree with you in part but don't be ridiculous. Getting up and stretching your legs for like five minutes every 30-60 minutes is sufficient. Maybe a 15-20 minute break to get a snack and recharge after two hours or so.

Attention span does get impacted after a few hours and you're likely to be retaining less information at the end of 4 hours than at the start, but not to such a degree that "you're not learning any news skills or getting any better".

there was a month or so when i was doing 40 hours a week which is a little under 6 hours a day (not doing it now because of uni and i'm not dishiprined enough to do both). just think of it as a 4x multiplier if you can also do the same quality of studying in that time, also 40hrs a week means your studying full time and doing the same hours as you would be expected to do in an industry job

Bring us your roughs, your storyboards, your pencil tests etc. Talk about industry, schools, the hopelessness of it all, how we all gonna make it etc.

If you're gonna post animation that isn't yours give source or state that it isn't yours.

Keep shitposting to a minimum. Don't feed the trolls.

Filesize limit
Brawlbox has a poor compression method where it somehow makes the gif look bad AND the filesize is still too big for me to post it here.
Fun fact: more than half of the time between that post and the ones I was replying to was just uploading the shit/my fucking browser crashing.
Fun times
In any case, I also love where it's at right now. Looking at the front-on view really gives off the precise (exact) personality I was hoping to give this guy.
Thanks for your advice, I wouldn't get here on my own and I'm sure the rest of my animations are gonna look better with my newfound knowledge

the animation is really great but i think some more morphing between each of the objects could bring some fluidity

ya know, dissolution, visual effects, plane/perspective play

all i can advise you is to watch motion graphics works on yt and to see how they switch from an object to another

these guys are great

I'm really into stick figure fights, so I was inspired to make some of my own. I'm trying to master the feel of battle and moving limbs keeping proportion, also having it being really small means I need to learn better emphasis on movement and combat.

Do you guys see anything else wrong with it? And any tips you may have to help keep the fight lively.

Also any animation tips in general, still very new to it.

In all seriousness guys, is art school really worth it? Did you have success after you graduated? Tell me your experience, cause I have so much questions right now.

I personally want to study animation and digital art, but none of my peers support me on my goals warning me I will starve if I go for it. Should I really go for it?

Kind of motivating, im not the best in my class but high up. The community college im in though has a big interior design/fashion department and I can tell most of my peers are just in it for that and couldn't give a fuck about drawing.

Last thread: >>2688865

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!
