Yeah I was actually thinking that when posting it. It lacks many artist types because it was probably designed for an animey community. And I'm guilty since my traditional example would have been a gritty pencil anime drawing.

Not him, but how do I achieve clean polished lines. I sketch for hours, but every time I try to clean up my lines and put a polish in, I just end up with another sketch layered over another sketch

Funny how that works
>>
>>3852876
I wouldn't too
>>
>>3852994
Can you draw a nice curved line in one or two strokes without making it look jagged and crappy? Your sketch is probably not tight enough or you don't have a clear idea of the final drawing. Generally speaking the tighter your base drawing the better your inks will be. Spend more time on your sketch, spend more time on your inks, do NOT draw a line unless you are absolutely comfortable that you'll make it nicely, rotate the sheet or canvas always. It's really just about practice and making confident strokes from the right position.
>>
>>3852994
clean lines are all about confidence and decisive mark making. practice from life with a pen and try to think through the purpose of every line before you make it.
>>
>>3852937
These categories are so arbitrarily specific and random that it's hard to relate to any one of them

How do I gain appeal? There must be something escaping me to make it look good. The characters already look like I imagine them to be except for the lack of color. Maybe... More fundies? For perspective and composition? I might be polishing a turd but maybe Photoshop fixes it

where is the tryhard one ?
I just hope i'll end up being able to freely express my "subconscious". But I also want to produce beautiful art so right now I'm going full study mode.
No clear type. Started last year at 22 on digital. Poorfag so screenless tablet until I can afford a cintiq 16 (soon enough finally).

lmao dude I just want to at least be able to practice my art all day instead of being a wageslut while having enough money to live in confort.
Please someone tell me you don't have to start drawing at 6 to end up letting your hand glide on the paper without boring perspective lines and proportions ruler.

it's a balance though. I think you must dream big while still be realistic about the grinding.
It's not thinking that you're special that would hold you back.
It's giving up while in the grinding phase (that part until you're confortable with all the fundamentals).
Hard to expect anything from practicing when you see that even Posuka Demizu started at a young age.
Just draw but also have a goal, right.

I would really consider doing personal work while you grind fundies, and lose your ego. You realize it takes a while to find something worth saying so might as well start now? A lot never even find it. Lots of people can get good technically, yet bring nothing to the table at all. Gettin good technically is the easy part, using it for something truly worthwhile is the hard one.
