What is /ALT/?
If you're looking for a place to post your cartooning then you've found the right general. This is /ic/s 1st and only merged hub where both Eastern and Western stylization can coexist peacefully, hence the double title. However, by community demand and long history, this is favorably an Anime general.
>Rules & Guidelines
(1) Any form of cartooning is welcome; so submit and receive feedback from others. (2) Please resize your images before posting. (3) Share your knowledge and (4) Remember to not be afraid of asking for critique. Most importantly I encourage you to keep discussion at a civil level, but you're more than welcome to share your opinions.
>I came for anime. Why does the image OP say cartoons general?
To distinguish from the anime study thread (janitor supported). Please post your studies there and personal work goes here.

As an animator who mostly focuses on drawing, painting was never a priority, but I've recently been interested in learning it as a hobby. I'm looking for an online course to take in my free time after work. How useful is Schoolism's "artist workout" format for someone who is kind of a beginner painter? Would I be better off taking one of their standard courses? I'm aware of most fundamentals and principals when it comes to painting, but I never really practiced them.

Let me replace the racial slur with 'rival' because you're a sensitive faggot about this.

Bobby is brilliant. But if I'm a rockstar artist. And I'm miserable teaching retards. Then why the fuck am I getting ornery at my students to let someone who is my rival get even a portion of my sacrifice of time. My rival is getting even a dime? I'm the fool. My students get a subpart course experience? I'm the asshole.

And do you think bobby cares that Nathan is MISERABLE and shitty? It's all automated, when Nathan leaves; Bobby will just find another sucker. He doesn't care about your course experience.

Why You Should Copy Anime:
https://i.imgur.com/zNDsyF0.jpg
https://youtu.be/t_IODIIYAe0

**Strive for quantity AND quality.**

Anime Studying:
>Copy anime references exactly and draw them from memory. Use illustrations, screenshots, anime figures, 3D models, etc.
>Don’t copy recklessly. Use construction, color theory, and other fundamental concepts to rehearse a drawing process that you can later easily manipulate for original artwork.
>Post all of your anime studies. Post even when you’re told not to. Create an art community that actually draws and improves together instead of just talking about it.
>Number your attempts and link to your previous posts.
>Critiquers should lead by example by posting their studies.

General Anime Style Discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.

I think about giving up drawing everyday. And when I give up I think about picking up drawing again everyday. It has been like this for over 5 years. Little progress over the years ofc.

Why can't I approach drawing as something fun and enjoy it? With sports, instruments, video games, whatever, I can have fun and practice seriously, what is stopping me??? I have my entire life to get good, but getting to put the damn pencil into the paper is so fucking hard.

I don't think you understand what "enjoy drawing" means. VOLUNTARY. FUN. doing shit you actually like to do. Saying things like "draw every day" makes me wonder if you are even taking this seriously.
>>
>>5328691
I draw daily and I enjoy it and get excited every single time, some of you are weird as fuck about this. I can't imagine forcing myself to get into a hobby that isn't enjoyable to me.

>>5329012
Some people enjoy creating or expressing something with their art, but the process that leads to the end result is at best a nuisance, at worst a constant struggle. On the other side of the spectrum you have people that really love the process, but have no real vision or desire to create anything in particular with it. I think most people fall somewhere between those 2. Very few artists love everything about art. The trick is to identify which type of artist you are and then work towards your strengths.
>>
>>5328898
So after 5 years you still struggle with drawing to the degree where it’s not fun at all?

>what is stopping me?
/ic/ tends to trap you in the mindset of harsh self critique and erodes your modes of positive reinforcement because the language for it doesn't pop up often. There is a difference between humbly taking critique and being self destructive by having no pride/joy in your work because you let yourself think its shit and your efforts are wasted.
If you never receive positive reinforcement for something you do, even from yourself, eventually you'll stop doing it. Your cycle is probably one where while you're not drawing you think back about how good you are at it/how far you've come until you've got enough steam and then once you start you immediately start tearing yourself down and picking your own shit apart and you never let yourself have the successes that are yours, like you'd do for sports or music.

I'm 39 years old and have disregarded drawing hentai/porn art - until I researched how much of an industry it is and that it's more likely to pay money -

So yesterday I decided to see what I could draw as a test, this is the result, what do you think? do I have a chance with my style?

Funny of everyone is mentioning "faces" and sexual appeal and of the 3 out of 140 posts containing art other than OP they are far worse and done with less skill and less appeal.

If OP's image was bad no one would be commenting, crabs only come to where the art that frightens their weak self esteem is.
