This thing's super overhwhelming, what're some optimal settings for it?

How do I lineart in this shit? I'm okay enough with rough sketching, but I feel like my lineart comes out gross and uneven no matter how many times I redo each line. Using G-Pen, if that matters.
Use stabilizer. At least 4 should give you some smoothness. In sai, I couldnt do anything smooth without at least 1 level stabilizer. But on this the scale is %.

Theres 27 levels of stab in sai, 100 in csp. Roughly 4% stab in csp would be the equivalent of 1 in sai. Thats not completely accurate programming-wise... point is - you need it for smooth lines
... unless you're god tier.
Fucked that up. its 22 in sai, so about 5% in csp for 1 level in sai. Just play with it.

Construction is a lot harder than I expected

I'm really struggleing with drawing this damn head shape
I draw the lines on the ball and then add the chin part but I can't figure out how to make the sides flat :/

You have to study form for this, sadly there's no easy way for this, just practice. Draw a 100 spheres and draw their flat sides, eventually you'll understand it better. One trick you could use to help is to buy a small styrofoam ball, cut the sides and paint the equator and centerline, like Proko did here

dont do it man its stupid and those who do are stupid fucks who are bad a te drawing and the suck whilst im here over here am great with no construction and no not hing waht some ever and still better thatn soeya, you shold really think about that because its about yr life and is all that matters man. life is al we have so take care. have a good day! hove to see you soon!

the reference shows (1) longer legs, (2) a more pronounced curve on the torso,(3) the arm really providing balance, 4 and the shoulders in a more logical position,(4), a good use of reference helps with the sense of weight, balance and form
That thumbnail makes me hard.
allright tweaked a few things and i think its looking a lot better allready. tried to keep colours more saturated in the light like someone said but i think thats making it look a little flat with the background

ill work on it some more later anyway

Why does art come naturally to some people, but others have to grind away for a lifetime?

>Artists that make it are healthy artists, full of spirit and joy, and they have a social life.
Ah yes; I forgot that people like Goya, Van Gogh and Emily Brontë are pictures of perfect mental health.

There are certainly some people who take a shine to art more quickly than others but I think that the most significant disconnect is that the people who become good in a hurry are people who love what they're doing instead of forcing themselves to grind because then they'll be gud at art.
>implying van gogh wasn't memed into popularity by jews after his death
>implying the attention was undeserving

Van Gogh died in poverty because he was fucking nuts and relatively unknown because of how few works survive; if he had had some hustle he would have been rolling in money.
You draw with hand and brain.

Tips on how to capture a likeness? Even when I nail the structure and proportions of the face the likeness of the person just seems off. Pic by Nathan Fowkes
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
>so angry you can't even craft a sentence
the thing with likeness is measuring
constantly compare drawing with ref face
flip them around/ check thumbnail etc etc

You likely are not "nailing" the structure and proportions then. Post your work, and we'll be able to tell what you are doing wrong.
its about noticing the minute details of the specific face. you have the loomis proportions as a general guideline but the reality is everyone has really specific distinction features that makes you look different from everyone else. things like space between eyebrows, eyes set under a brow ridge, not under a brow ridge, downward facing eyebrows, upward pointed eyebrows, curved eyebrows, lots of space between lips and bottom of nose, not a lot of space, wide lips, narrow lips, big 'M' on the upper lips, almost no 'M' on the upper lip, flared nostils, skinny nostrils, pinched nostriles, etc.

measuring helps a lot when you first start
Look into sight size and comparative measuring

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.

(1) Any form of cartooning is welcome; so submit and receive feedback from others. (2) Please resize your images before posting.

add more stuff anon, shadows, folds, colours, background etc, I like it as is but it is hard to read
I like it. Post blog.

The angle of the left ankle implies a greater degree of bend in the knee than is shown; for the pose displayed to be possible, her left femur would have to be shorter than her right, otherwise that degree of ankle flexion would not be necessary for the toe to contact the ground. To correct, you would need to either bring the left heel closer to the ground or bring the whole leg out at the hip.

The mouth also seems to be floating. The angle of the eye line implies a perspective that the other features don't appear to agree with (a slight up-tilt.) Maybe I'm wrong about this though.

Also, is the "stock" of the gun supposed to function as the seat in this case? If so, it seems really narrow, too much so even for an itty bitty loli toches. Something to keep in mind if you draw more of these, I guess. It seems like it would also be really difficult to stay upright without any kind of stirrups, but maybe that's part of the charm.

Overall it looks really good though. I especially like how you captured the crinkliness of the straw material rather than just making it look like horsehair.
Really appreciate the detailed critique and the compliment. You're absolutely right about the left leg; I noticed that problem while inking and tried to correct for it. I couldn't bring out and rotate her leg without making the form of her boot difficult to read, so I decided to just go with and hope the issue wasn't too notable. You're probably right about the face too, I didn't construct that part rigorously at all; just went with what seemed cute and expressive.

I was thinking the wooden part of the barrel would be where she sits, if that's what you mean? I think it's a good point to add some more functionality features like a seat and some stirrups, too. It dawned on me to give her some aviation googles, but I was already coloring and figured I'd save them for next time.

Which one has the least parallax effect?
Cintiq 16
Anyone have Picassotab? Wondering if I should get it to sketch while traveling or if I should shell out the extra $150 for the iPad and pencil.
I have a Gaomon because it was on sale for like $400. I don't have any other tablet to compare it to. Working just as expected, though unfortunately I'm used to using hotkeys very often so I slide my keyboard behind it as I need more than the 10 buttons on the side of the tablet. Haven't needed to charge pen once and I've used the tablet for at least 80+ hours. Easy assembly too.

In a similar boat. What screen tablet do I buy? It's driving me crazy, there's such a disparity in reviews for the same exact product.
>it's great bro, just like a cintiq, maybe even better and much more reasonably priced
>it fucking blew up in a week, was generally horrible and cintiq's are absolutely better don't buy this chinese garbage

I've narrowed it down to maybe the Huion GT-221 Pro or a used Cintiq 22HD. I have $300 in Amazon credit too so I would only have to pay about $350 out-of-pocket for the GT-221 Pro new. If I go with the Cintiq 22HD it would be used and something in the range of $700. I don't want to buy the Huion if I just end up having to buy a cintiq down the road anyways.
