Yeah sadly FFXIV is pretty much the only game that gets five good 300+ page artbooks at Square.
If you want i can scan the XV artworks, but it's maybe 15-20 interesting pages.

The book isn't even THAT expensive, I would buy it myself but I have no clue how to bring it over to where I live, given that I can barely receive packages from amazon and the courier I used to use from Japan only buys from very specific marketplaces.

Have both a 13" Cintiq (no touch) and a 6th gen iPad with procreate. I'm still a beginner, have only been drawing for about a year, but can't really decide which I like more and should primarily use. The only real advantages I can see myself is the iPad's portability, but I rarely leave home so it doesn't come in handy as much as I'd like.

you want an anti-glare screen protector. preferably one of those plastic ones cause even tho it's not as great at protecting, it's thinner and won't give you parallaxxx
>>
I would say the cintiq but it has no touch, but the iPad is more restrictive in size and programs. But for a beginner I would say it doesn't matter and you're starting off better than most anyway.
>>
>>3815863
Artstudio is better than Procreate

They're bringing photoshop CC to ipad with complete brush support so I'd wait for that.

Use both and also use paper and canvas you moron.

What is /ALT/?
If you're looking for a place to post your cartooning then you've found the right general. This is /ic/s 1st and only merged hub where both Eastern and Western stylization can coexist peacefully, hence the double title. However, by community demand and long history, this is favorably an Anime general.
>Rules & Guidelines
(1) Any form of cartooning is welcome; so submit and receive feedback from others. (2) Please resize your images before posting. (3) Share your knowledge and (4) Remember to not be afraid of asking for critique. Most importantly I encourage you to keep discussion at a civil level, but you're more than welcome to share your opinions.
>I came for anime. Why does the image OP say cartoons general?
To distinguish from the anime study thread (janitor supported). Please post your studies there and personal work goes here.

This picture is actually being used to help me make a pricing sheet for commissions haha. But yes I've already taken quite a few commissions before, though they're not usually extremely high quality since I have limited time to draw. I'm currently working on a proper blog, everything I have is very dated

Thank you both very much. I'll try testing different highlight colors, it's supposed to be more red than orange and I wanted a contrast from too much blue

OP, Please reconsider the eye placement. It’s been 9 years and you need to re-evaluate your design choice. It’s frankly disgustingly bad. I love you like a son but sometimes I want to smack some sense into you. I know you could do so much better, Love your ArtDad.

>>3816133

Well, I'm far from perfect but if I had to say four things that made me improve a lot


1 Quantity over quality (at least most days a week)

2 Know technical vocabulary (in this way it is faster to find educational material online)

3 Think about the anatomical and gestural drawing as a previous warm-up for more serious paintings

4 The days when you are not inspired are the most important days to practice

**If you make good copies of anime *properly*, you will be able to draw good anime. If you make bad copies of anime or bad anime styled drawings from photos, you will get better at drawing bad anime. Please think carefully about how you are studying.**

This is the thread for:

1. Posting your anime studies:
>Copy exactly but don’t do it aimlessly. Integrate drawing concepts (construction, color theory, tracing, etc.) into your studies in order to pull information from the reference (anime art, figurines, tutorials) that you can later use for your original work.
>Do a single study multiple times to ensure you address all of your mistakes and memorize the correct process in your head. Attempt drawing it from memory as well.
>You will only be able to effectively deviate from your reference after doing exact copy studies accurately and consistently.
2. General anime style discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.
>Drawing methods, study habits, resources, tutorials, tools, software, etc
>Be specific and try to post a sample of your study attempts before asking for help.

I can read nip. I've read all the main japanese art books that get posted here.
You're honestly not missing much of anything. There are no gook "sekrets;" people like you are literally just desperate for any excuse for why you're not getting gud.
Almost everything in the nip books you can figure out by simply looking at the pictures and/or are written in english in english art books.

Have you seen Louis Theroux’s program A Place For Pedophiles? One rapist hung paintings of lil ballet boys in tight leggings and they enforced the fuck out of him. He tried what many of the anons with sexual disorders in this thread are trying. “It’s just art! It’s just a painting!”. The screws didn’t buy it because coupled with the fact he likes to rape kids it wasn’t just a painting at all. Society wont ever be held hostage by the threat of pedos claiming they will rape kids if they don’t get their cartoon child porn. They fact you want to fuck kids in the first place is the problem and society will deal with that.

Hello /ic/ ! It's me, boxman, that crazy dude that used to take pose requests and upload them to https://boxman.booru.org/.

I have compiled a comprehensive 17 step-by-step tutorial on how even you, nay even I! can draw an anime eye.

All you need is a access to an ability to make a perfect circle, digitally or by just using a cup, and a straightedge such a ruler or end of a book.

With that I will begin by uploading just the raw pages which contain the process. I plan on organizing them later today after I go to the dentist.

Shouldn't be too bad, i made my handwriting as neat as possible!
