How do popular artists make rookie mistakes like this?
>>4014582Listen to that episode of Proko's podcast where Marshall Vandruff talks about how he drew a guy's hands backwards.
>>4014582You need to use the proper term "nu-artist" or people might get confused
>>4014582Are you sure that's not the palm facing up though?
>>4014588It still looks awful, the hand looks backwards.
>>4014589>It still looks awfulWell, yeah, that's shadman for you
>>4014589everything looks horrible dude. Look at them feet
>>4014582Everything about that looks awful. What do you call this internet style anyway? I know a lot of them use flash but they also all draw the same way its weird
>>4014582Shadfags please go!
>>4014593no i want them to stay and make more threads actually
>>4014586The fuck's a nu-artist?
>>4014582is shadman th new jim davis?
>>4014604Nu is just a prefix meaning "thing I don't like". Not to be confused with the actual prefix of "nu" meaning new or recent
To be fair shadman posts a finished comic like every two days on his twitter. I don't think he has time to worry about anatomical accuracy. He doesn't need to worry about shit because whatever he is currently doing is clearly working given by his likes/retweets/comments
>>4014582Because lots of popular artists are rookies. As for good popular artists - laziness.I think the main difference between a good artist and a great one is that if a great artist half-asses it, he fixes it. You can have two artists technically as skilled but one will still be better if he holds himself to a higher standard on what he considers 'good enough'.
For how many years has shadman been drawing? He still draws the same or even worse since he got famous.
As long as he can draw this.
>>4014768Dude must have drawn millions of hands, at this point he should know better
>>4014582It's a black glove so it's hard to see but isn't the palm facing up? So the thumb is on the correct side.
>>4014582popular =/= good.
>>4014582I mean given the pose, his hand is clearly palm up. You dumb autist.This is how you can tell when someone is a /beg/ tier faggot, because out of ALL the things that are absolutely fucking horrible in this image, you try and peg the anatomy on the hand while completely being ignorant of the pose he's obviously going for.Here's my tip, stop worrying about other people and just draw you fuckin idiot
>>4015705>>4015642Thumb may be on the right side but it is extremely hard to turn your hand so the thumb is that far down. Completely unnatural, uncomfortable and would most likely require force to have such an extreme turn of the wrist and hand which is the main reason it looks wrong.
>>4015749>It looks wrong because of my perfact knowledge of the anatomy and motion of the human bodyit looks bad because he didn't define that palm so it looks flat like the back of your hand. stop being retarded.
