I can't figure out why this sketch just looks wrong. Can anyone offer any input? I didn't draw it but I'm having a commission done and while I like the pose and the way the image generally looks, there's something really off about it that I can't identify and it's driving me crazy. Any ideas?

>fundamentally miss the appeal of comics

Anon, I get what you mean, but don't assume that people read comics for your "appeal" either.

Plenty of people only "read" comics for the pictures, and don't give a fuck about the storytelling, that's why there's plenty of readers that only read OPM by Murata (fancy art) and avoid the Webcomic by ONE like the plague.
>OPM by Murata (fancy art)

An even better example is Bleach, it's got a cool art, sick battles, and garbage plot.
Murata's OPM has pretty good storytelling though, it's just going for something completely different (and makes blunders later on). It sets out to tell a story with epic fights and it does that pretty well, and the writing and art works together to achieve that. You're what I'm talking about when I say "missing the appeal". If somebody wants a good story, they read a book. If somebody wants good art, they look at an artbook. When somebody wants art and story working together, they read a comic. Obviously individuals are going to have preferences for what art they like and what stories they like, but this doesn't change the fact that art and story are inseparable in comics and the result of trying to separate them is uncanny.

Again, you're missing the point. Good art can still be working in tandem with terrible writing and be successful, as is clear with Bleach, because it's using the art to tell the story in a compelling fashion, even when the story is awful. Bleach's artwork conveys the story very well, the story itself sucking is beside the point. ONE's OPM conveys the story very well, the art itself sucking is beside the point.
>When somebody wants art and story working together

Not really, most people when they want that they consume animation, or video games, not comics, which is why comics are so unpopular, their niche is already filled by better options.

Anon, Bleach, and specially Dragon Ball Z/Super are 99.9% art, and 00.01% "story"
>most people when they want that they consume animation, or video games, not comics,
They consume that stuff as well. You're just talking about preference for medium, not the qualities of the medium itself.
>Anon, Bleach, and specially Dragon Ball Z/Super are 99.9% art, and 00.01% "story"
Dragonball's another fantastic example of using the medium to tell the story. It's a very compelling read, despite the story being very one-note, and that's because the author knew how to use art and story in tandem.
I'm saying the art is PART of the "story", or rather, it's the medium for telling it. You'd understand this if you ever made comics, or movies, or really any storytelling medium that blends other mediums to tell a story. It's not as simple as throwing some text or audio on an image, there's much more to it than that. Choosing what image, how you draw it, how you phrase the text, if you use text at all or a lot of it etc are all STORYTELLING choices that are not STORY choices. Do you understand? It's a fundamental part of making comics to tell a story with visuals, and it takes skill to do so.
To use another medium as an example to help clarify: moviemakers are not necessarily photographers, because shooting a movie uses multiple mediums to tell a story, while a photographer's primary (and perhaps only) goal is capture a single moment or a series of single moments, to show off a bunch of pretty pictures. They are fundamentally different, and a movie can succeed at telling a story with visuals and sound and movement while not having very many pretty pictures at all, or not having very good writing or whatever.

the bar for what aesthetic I like is well below my skill level so I don’t run into that problem. But in the case of higher bars, obv you need to skill up to meet the aesthetic or keep envying those better artists.
Man I wonder what he'd think if he lived long enough to see all the furry art/porn these days..
You fool, he's still being kept alive as a floating head in a sci-fi jar in some multi billionaire japanese furrys tokyo penthouse, pulling all the strings behind the scenes.
Rumors say he invented VR-chat but you didn't hear that from me.
I will make a solid argument for a manga style that is semi realistic fairly detailed but idealized proportions and an expressive face, I can't remember examples off the top of my head, and sadly its mostly a style used in porn.

of any art style, I love it when I see that one done well.


The best professionals learn from each other, they admire, worship each other, hell they copy, steal, and plagiarize each other.
That's why they're the best, and why they always get better, they're learning from the best.

So then why weren’t you able to do it?
Bet the people who have Dave Rapoza and Jason Chan on quick dial are trembling in their boots.
What are you getting at? If they have better artists on speed dial, why they waste their money on nobodies?

Those famous ones are the firsts who will sue a company if they don't pay them for even showing a single line of their work in their product.

Protect your own work and if you get blacklisted by a shitty company or shitty/greedy business person, that's actually a win.
Have some principles instead of mindlessly chasing any penny that gets thrown in your way.

If you don't see anything wrong the one on the right which is rampant with glaring issues then you are a perma beg retard.
I'm not the permabeg faggot who marked the left shoulder as being raised well above her hand even though it clearly wasn't drawn that way. Again your retarded ass tried to make your failures into Nat's and everyone is rightfully laughing at you Dunning Kruger for it. Just kill yourself already you're destined to never make it.
Lmao Pyw, retard. I know you are a perma beg because you are defending a painting that is obviously and objectively flawed. If you looked at it for more than a second you realise the entire construction of the anatomy is fucked up. Not only that but it's not appealing either. Stay in your bucket if you aren't going to kill yourself.
