Why are westerners so bad at drawing anime? It seems like anyone can recreate western art but when it's the other way, it's just awful. Is it because all the best resources are in Japanese and only weebs learn japanese? It doesn't seem that hard because only the eyes are exaggerated and there's usually less details, yet everyone sucks at it.

Also something I wondered about. Why is it that a majority of asian artists seem to draw better from a young age? My guess is because they study the basics and have a better work ethic than Americans do (See the copying animu shit without studying) but I could be wrong.
>>
>>3769636
>Why is it that a majority of asian artists seem to draw better from a young age?
they don't. it's thousands of hours of practice. they're more motivated, in asian countries you typically work towards being the best you can at one thing instead of meandering in a bunch of things you're not good at.

I am an artist, and today I had to go to the emergency room with such severe vertigo that lasted 12+ hours and is still there but I'm on anti anxiety to cope with the distress. It is so constant, extreme and terrifying. That I had never considered suicide but if this doesn't stop in a few days I can't handle it. I've been told that video games are a bad idea. I'm scared to do anything without asking (I asked google first). Anyone with experience tell me if I will make it worse doing my art? I'm desprate, please have mercy on me. I asked my mom if she would help me die. I'm 34. No suicide thoughts before this is so extreme I beat my face in involuntary terror and exasperation. Without the tranqs I can't hold on. Anyone with experience tell me if this is a safe activity. Please have mercy on me. Please I'm begging you. Real answers =lease god please

This is not a critique thing, I don't care if I'm the wrost artist ever, I just didn't know where else to ask where there were a lot of artists.

Might you be having sleeping problems in general Anon? That could be a possibility.

I know I suffered something similar a period of vertigo and constant headaches myself and also hand anxiety attacks when I just woke up in the middle of the night and felt like I was about to die if I fall asleep again I would never wake up. However the vertigo wasn't nearly as terrible as you described. After it settled down a bit I was referred to MRI cardiology and everything but neither found anything wrong with me.

Turned out that bad posture during long hours of work on art might have been the culprit, I decided to completely overhaul my workplace area afterwards to rue l out the possibly. It kept coming back randomly but over time it slowly went away almost completely.

Make sure you rule out the damaging posture possibility. Hope you get well soon, keep reporting back!

i had a similar case a while back, it was just vertigo all day long and i cant even balance myself walking. and after some research i deducted it was some sort of ear issue since i went to a pretty shitty public pool the day before and my hearing felt muffled in that ear so i assume it was some sort of ear infection. went to a doctor and got perscripted some ear drops and i recovered after 2-3 days despite suffering pretty badly during those headaches

This is an extremely interesting answer. I do have sleeping problems in general and also my posture from sitting down nearly all day might be affected. It's worth considering that my posture from sitting at a screen all day could have affected my ears in some way, as there are connections to the neck, mastoid, ears, spine, etc. But I have a strong feeling that there was something more too it than that simply because of the severity of it. Though maybe it contributed, who knows. I found this post to be excellent and worth reading because it related to art and lifestyle and I never considered it but lately I have been thinking about it, before even this emergency, I was thinking about my posture etc. from long hours at the computer and looking into exercises for strengthening my neck, just in case my posture was suffering. I read somewhere that people can be suffering posture without realising it. My neck doesn't bother me but sometimes my eyes do a bit, like a bit of fatigue or possibly/probably strain. So even if its not related to the vertigo I found this post very worth reading.

>>3769133
I'm glad it resolved for you. My hearing isn't muffled but I do think I have eustachian tube dysfunction. Thanks for sharing.

Anyway, thanks everybody for sharing and your support, I deeply appreciate it, it means a lot to me I hope all of you are blessed. I'm gonna leave this thread now and I wish you all the best. I think things will be fine, it seems this is manageable with medication and hopefully time. Still dizzy today, but much calmer.

God bless, and later. If I come back it'll be as a normal anon again, just for the sake of posting art. I'm gonna leave this thread be. I'm still only spending minimal time at any screen.

This is kind of adorable in a very pathetic kinda way. How old was he when he made these? Says 2000 on there, so he musta been like 14 no?

It's funny how you can see various aspects of his psyche kinda come out through his art.
>>
>>3768623
Yeah, mid teens. The art isn't actually bad. Like the anatomy is rough, but serviceable. The shoddy linework and lazy design is what makes it look so crappy. But you can see the potential. The potential he never followed up on.

Anyone want to start a stream group to get good in a year/2 years together similar to Dave Rapoza and the crimson daggers? The goal is to stream/draw 10 hours a day everyday, we will all post what we're working on time to time, passively chat, but focus on improving.

I was doing this a few months ago with some people, it was pretty fun and motivating just sharing our studies, and passively chatting, but the streamer gave up after awhile.

I can't be the streamer because of anxiety and working trad on a reclined chair.

Huh. So basically drawing the same subject with variations in lighting and perspective? I see how that could work. Thanks anon.
>>
>>3767848
Well, not necessarily drawing(unless drawing works better for you, I find it time consuming unless I can't understand the form). You can just look and understand without drawing too many times. For instance, you could paint a "depth map". You can assign a gradient for how deep a surface is compared to a base case. You look at variations in lighting, understand how the shadows are moving and infer the form from that. Once you fully know what you're drawing, it's easy to achieve if you have good penmanship.

>>
>>3767014
Got no tips but if you get good at making stuff look like yugioh card art you can make a good amount selling oricas to people with nice quality custom art. (Orica = original card). You can print them yourself but it would be better to go to one of the top orica makers and just sell them your art/let them use it for a % of the sale. Or custom playmat designs too.

No but people use them in friendly matches and to show of in their trade binders. They also use them as proxys for official cards when the official one is really exspensive but they still want it to look nice, or when it isnt out in english yet. The art can also be placed on Tokens which CAN be used in official matches. (as long as its not straight up porn on it) Here is one example site that sells them in very high quality.

You can also mockup them yourself with this template.

learn how specific textures react to different lighting/environment/etc, keep your forms and colors crisp, make sure you have a dedicated light source. make sure you are not over rendering/ overworking one specific thing. if you are focusing on mainly fantasy stuff like pic related, make sure it has some basis in reality that you can work off of

I am art director with a small group of about 20 coders, concept artists, sprite artist, narrative writers, and so on. We are looking for a couple of new sprite artists to join our team. Once the demo is done, you will be paid with revshare based on contributions soon after we finish the first demo, which should be done within a month. Potential sprite artists post discord as a response to this if you want to join.
