>why is this more appealing than it's 3d and realistic counterpart?

why is anime style so fkin appealing.. even chink rendered stuff doesn't come close. And modern western style is literally bottom of the barrel

Because it’s got less detail leaving you to fill in the rest with your imagination which knows you best. This is the superior Japanese comic way.
underrated. took you long enough to post this ic, then ignored it to give (you)s to bait posts
this reminds me of the
>anime is whites/ animes is chinks
discussions we have around here. it's ambiguous enough to let the viewer complete the information, but ppl from different nationalities will fill in with different info
So, source?

>He fell for the Loomis meme
Loomis is to Bridgeman as Durer is to DaVinci

Stop measuring and start drawing from life, observe the forms, and train your eye to capture both, "Man and the intention of his soul"

jesus christ go read bridgman's complete guide to drawing from life
There is literally nothing constructive about the middle. You can literally just look at people and figure that out. Notice how with the bridgeman pictures the forms simplify and fit into each other mechanically? I bet your art looks like garbage.
Pearls before swine

People are just too literal-minded to understand why Bridgman and Hogarth's drawings look the way they do.
imo loomis is good for learning how to draw simplified anime grils

hogarth and bridgeman are good for learning how to draw everything else

Ok guys, so I've been digging these photoshop brushes by Justin Gerard since a while now. The thing is they are waaaay too fucking expensive, since the "Sketching and Drawing", "Watercolor Vol.1" and "Textuture" bundle costs $50.
I will finally buy them this week, but it would be nice if someone else who also wanted to get these for a lower price would like to part costs with me since it's a lot of money for just some photoshop brushes.
If so let me know here so we can share the costs and, of course, the brushes.

>paying for brushes that mullins and whit brachna gave to everyone for free 10 years ago
if you're dumb enough to buy brushes, you deserve to be ripped off

>meanwhile special brushes are shared only within selected dm and discord groups
>being so stupid to think that brushes matter that much and that there is a secret society of artists that only share shit with each other

Go draw you absolute cretin.

So how do I draw anime? Don't tell me to learn realism, it's clear they're all copying from the same source because some things are always drawn the same way like hands and pointy chins.

>drawing an*me
step 1: find anime artists you like
step 2: incorporate certain aspects of their art that you like into your own art
step 3: grind that shit until it becomes muscle memory
Feels so good to know none of the people making these threads will ever make it. You deserve it.
This is really good, who's the artist? Or anyone know people with a similar style?

Yes, because one is about teaching you to feel form and the other is a challenge which brings together all the knowledge you've learned.

It's shit. Why even bother with crappy free resources when you can just pirate the great ones instead
His attitude towards digital art makes his lessons largely irrelevant to the majority of aspiring artists on the internet in 2018- nobody specifically wanting to do digital art wants to spend years learning traditional art, and then spend another decade in "I'm still just not as comfortable with my tablet as on paper" territory while re-learning/translating it to a tablet.

1. What barriers of entry exist for a westerner who wants to start making doujins?
Obviously the language barrier would exist between the artist and a non-english speaking audience., which can be fixed with translations.
2. What is a good platform to post doujins (either parody or original) onto?
3. Should the artist post online as a solo artist or do they need to join a group?
4. Is full-color work more valued than black and white, regardless of lineart quality?
yeah good luck with that lmfao
Is there a really high barrier to entry then?
Keep in mind this is the opinion of a complete layman, although I suspect you'll find nothing but laymen on /ic/.

The main issue with living from doujins as a westerner would probably be a publishing one. The Japanese are an extremely xenophobic culture, and exchanges between Japan and the west are very limited. From what I can gather, for everything business-related, non-japs are treated as a completely different entity from japs. This doesn't mean it's impossible to make business in Japan. There's some western media that are super popular there. But all those that have succeeded, and reached Japan, have done so because they had a large western audience. That's not the case with doujins to my knowledge, or at the very least, no one here pays for them.

Giving yourself the objective of "making doujins" is the same as wanting to make anime. Few people will take you seriously regardless of your skill, simply because of how the culture is set up.
If you want to make doujins just make doujins. No one can stop you. If you want to make money be a plumber.

How to learn to do this? Am I supposed to stare at a reference and try to break it down as simply as possible.
we have a head, a torso, and an abdomen, this is apparent in any figure and will follow similar proportions, arms generally reach just below the crotch and crotch is equidistant to head and feet. imply gesture by following the spine, and generally start with the head

Just look at pictures of people both static and in motion, take note of the basic components of their body, maybe even print some out and trace over them with the more basic shapes until you are familiar with how the abstract tubes and blocks represent the more detailed parts of a human body.

So I'm having problems with 3/4 heads.
Mostly when the mouth and nose starts to overlap the rest of the face.
If you guys could help me by pointing out the mistakes and how to draw it correctly I'd be grateful.
cmon bucko.... is it really that hard for u to see ur problem?

like... did it not naturally come to u that maybe doing studies of heads in the 3/4 view would be beneficial?

also u'r having more trouble with the eyes than anything else. doing studies of HEADS!!! real people HEADS!!!! will help you understand the facial features in all the dimensions (3!!! )
Good non advice.
You are great at drawing Jewish people.

The very top tier Asians are more attractive than average white chicks? Yeah, no shit. More attractive than top tier whites? Not a chance in hell. And the average Asian woman is a moon-faced sack of ugly. Get off the goddamn internet, you sound like a virgin.
