I'm convinced that I'm retarded. I can't look at a piece and deconstruct it enough to apply my own thinking to it. For example, with pic related (no I didn't make it) I can see the hair shapes and anatomy perfectly fine but my mind just can't copy it no matter what. Idk if it's the brushes or what and it's hard to explain but it's bugging the fuck out of me. What am I lacking? No I don't have aphantasia fyi. I fucking hate analogies but it's like watching your mom cook something nice, reading the recipe, getting the exact ingredients, trying it yourself only to realize yours is a thousand times more disgusting in comparison.
Mostly the reports and placements. You can't really eye it. Either measurement or muscle memory from intense anatomy exercises

It gives me these blank spaces and I have to manually fill these which is a pain in the ass.
Also another question, but how do you color your drawings without going outside of the lines?
Picrel, I always have to erase the parts that are outside the drawing and that shit consumes time and is frustrating to deal with that.

If you're doing Flats, what I do is:
>Use the Magic Wand tool (you'll have to adjust the tolerance according to how clean/messy it is)

>Make an Action on Photoshop (assign it to whatever command you want)
>Select>Modify>Expand by a few px (according to your resolution, I use 3px since I draw above 3500px)
>Fill with Foreground Colour
Then touch up the selection afterwards normally with an eraser/brush tool
Just turn up area scaling

Like most questions on this site, the answer is dilating and using a lasso
the fuck are actions?
>What are Photoshop Actions? A Photoshop action is a tool which can perform a series of steps and settings to perform a task
So it does everything like that Anon said if you click F6 (for example). Otherwise you are wasting time having to do everything manually

Support each other and talk about your work or the work of others that excites you. Inking, character design, paneling / layout, writing, planning, and other discussions are all welcome.
Post resources, questions, in-progress pages, breakdowns of other works, etc. If a work is not yours, credit the maker (unless it's fucking obvious like a full page of One Piece or something).
Thanks to everyone for making /mmg/ a level-headed and helpful place. Remember, drawing and making comics and manga are difficult endeavors, and we're all in this struggle together.

i dont have the largest following of all time, far from it, but I will say that drawing the ocs of bigger art accounts definitely helps, even if they don't follow you back. just see their retweets and whether they retweet fanart or not. its not everyones favorite, but a lot of vtubers on twitter seem to have fan art tags they retweet from frequently.

reading comprehension
If you had reading comprehension you wouldn’t be a useful idiot for gooks and russniggers that want you to kill yourself kiddo.

Do you wish you could undo the dozens of other vaccines you’ve had in your life or are you only opposed to the one your propaganda says is bad?
my bad, thought you were someone else and not the glowie
>Do you wish you could undo the dozens of other vaccines you’ve had in your life or are you only opposed to the one
just the one that's entirely untested and is giving children strokes and teenagers heart attacks, yeah
Let me translate your nigger gooksprecht into English:

>YES. Im a useful idiot for gooks and russniggers (I actually am a russnigger and my inevitable suicide beckons). And I’m only opposed to the vaccine I’ve been radicalized against. I “trust the science” except for when my propagandists tell me not to, because I’ve ceded all of my agency and critical thinking skills to vaccinated strangers that laugh about pathetic how I am.

Ching Ching Ding Dong lil russnigger.
This. You can spot a shill because they'll encourage all vaccines except the covid one. Guess what, retards: they're all fucking dangerous.

How do I imitate this traditional rendering in digitial art? Is it possible?

desu Jeff Watts is better than most old masters
Then why are there so few artists that can make something look genuinely like from that time period? That is what I mean by having another dimension of difficulty. Vilppu has supposedly been drawing from old masters for 153 years but his works still do not have the same qualities. If you look at other media where they had people make drawings that try to appear likes from that time period it always looks off. It is something you have to focus on, not dabble in for the occassional old timey aesthetic.
>Why not picking up a conté sanguine and some toned canson paper?
It's more expensive than electricity to run my tablet.
>Then why are there so few artists that can make something look genuinely like from that time period?
1. Just because you don't know any, doesn't mean they don't exist. As it's a very unpopular style I doubt they would be famous or well known, especially just for their sketches.
2. This style doesn't sell well. Learning how to imitate is isn't a practical use of time.
The point is: just because there are almost no artists that you know who do this, doesn't mean it's too difficult for modern artists..

>Vilppu has supposedly been drawing from old masters for 153 years
And I'm pretty sure Vilppu isn't THAT old :^)
Missed the point, but actually wrong anyway.
There are plenty of traditional artists who try to imitate them, in drawing and painting, and still sell despite not doing quite the same kind of works. Many more wish to imitate the style, and it is a growing preoccupation. I have met them. They can draw well enough, but still missing something.
Old master drawings hold a special category when it comes to collections, so people do like this style.
#2 still admits it takes time to develop, not something someone can just pick up. There are freaks who use historical materials like special kinds of natural chalk who can't do it well. I doubt someone doing digital is going to fare better.

>this is a really bad photobash job.
this is what AAA game devs from one of the biggest studios is paying people to do and then proudly displaying. hard to believe
I suppose it does the job as concept art for the 3d modeller. As a finished piece it looks blotchy and fragmented. Power to them. I do wonder if it's any more fun working as a concept artist than working at a restaurant. You're still slaving so the business owners who make the real money. Probably don't have much freedom past the blue sky phase, if you're even involved in coming up with ideas and designs. And at the restaurant you can move around, chat with people. Concept art is still just a sit at your desk all day job. I don't even know what I'm aiming for anymore.

Fucking zoomers, this is not how old anime looks like, this is how shitty rips look like.
Instead of turning it into a style, you should be worried about restoring old media to look 1:1 with what was originally intended.

I hope you die.
noise filter+color palette+character design
too bad you can't draw independent of style so forget it
ime the easiest thing to do is simply start studying settei sheets from 80's/90's anime and doing poses & rotations with those characters while trying to stay on model. you could even make a style sheet where you break down the proportions more systematically. sites like setteidreams often have color guides as well. you can fuck around a lot with grain and aberation after that but having a convincing drawing is the most important thing

Hello, I'm new here,
I can draw okay ish, never tried animation
How do I get started?
What program do I use?
How do i make it not stiff?
I can putt gesture into still images but i don't think it would work well with animation.
download blender and learn grease pencil 101 (blender's 2d side)
for quick animation/doodling try motorpen for a simple and accesable experience
there's a version of TVPaint on the OP mega tho i havent used it myself so i dont know if its malware
learn the base 12 priciples and enjoy
good luck : DDD
>Motorpen’s FPS options matches with on-paper animation
That’s actually nice.
