I recently played through Okami and it really got the creative juices flowing. I’m wanting to implement more of the Ukiyo-e style to my art and was wondering if there are any good videos, books, or general tutorials that break it down and make it easy to understand the thought process behind it?

Thanks in advance

ukiyo-e is woodblock printing, in order to emulate the style that would be a good place to start. Next best thing would probably be colored ink or watercolor applied with a brush.

it is sumi-e aka ink wash painting as well as the colorful ukiyo-e, it varies between the two or even three styles depending on the parts of the game.
Like Okami herself uses sumi-e and most of the characters are a mix between ink and a more clunky color shape, but most of the environments are ukiyo-e. I think even the skies have a tag attached which is commonly seen in that style.

much appropriation
you can like and be inspired by shit that comes from japan without beeing a weeaboo you retarded bandwagoning fuck. eat shit and die.

Where do I have to start if I want to start drawing like the likes of Jon Whitcomb and other artists from the 40s and 50s?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
this. instead of wishing you drew like them, draw like them. copy their style. then rotate the heads and eventually draw them from imagination. if you want to draw like somone, study and steal their work.
check out FAS, Rockwell how I make a picture, also learn to draw traditionally
Build time machine then profit.
They drew from live models. 40s and 50s artists are really good at omitting ugly unnecessary details. Also here's the Famous Artists Course, Jon Whitcomb contributed to some of these.

dude, we have to exist in a capitalist system.
it'd be nice for sure if marxists attempted to practice what they preach, but it would most likely just be a more horizontal version of capitalism, at best.

ok, I'm probably not in a position to say anything, but I think one can "paint" in interesting ways regardless of what brush your using. I personally enjoy just using hard brushed to color stuff...

Beginner perspective books aren't shortcuts. I'm someone that went through it and I'm telling you it's useless, it doesn't improve your sense of perspective, your time would be spent better off studying figure, anatomy, anything else.

>MFW I do digital art with the stabilizer set to the max
>MFW I can now never go back
>MFW I am the ultimate degenerate
For awhile I had the stabilizer on my inking brush set to 14 for smooth lines but it was feeling so artificial and not "mine" that I set that shit to 4.

Its not as clean, its imperfect, but I'm satisfied knowing that line is MINE. I MADE THAT LINE, ME. The roughness adds character and energy too so it looks better

There is always stabilisation anyway since the software has to link the sensed points.
Traditionnal is not a chore. It's a chance.

how old are you?

How do you get better at form and thinking 3D?

trace is like the lowest beg tier mindset, dunno how you're expecting to improve that way
id suggest finding a taught life drawing session, the teacher will be able to guide you but when I do figure drawing I put down a few very light lines to get the angle of the shoulders, the angle of the hips and the curve of the spine.
also huge thing is to pay attention to the negative space (google it if youve not heard the term before)

Wrapping lines. Draw wrapping lines on everything. Unironically try to feel the form as you draw them.
