>ai slop poster is a retarded soulless subhuman with no standards
I wouldn't be surprised to find out you're one of the pathetic apes that is giving those tracing faggots money.
>don't copy my totally unique pose and idea
It's fine. It's not even a 1-to-1 copy and you'd be surprised how many similar things like this are out there. You only care because someone is pointing it out.
>you think a major company wants to see a random spread of illustrations
If you're applying to WotC, Applibot, Asmodee, etc. they don't want to see shitty concept art they want to see your best 10-12 illustrations and maybe a detailed doccument of how you took one from prompt to finish.

Not everyone wants to get molested at Blizzard.
And that's why you produce neither.

no thanks and go away
One point seems to be that art is something that will stick with us regardless of how many trends will get brought
Another one feels like that we all have different artistic ways of creating and doing things.

Nice, anon. Thank you.
I was never good enough at figure drawing to make my own hentai.
I do have a soft spot for LWA. Was a great anime.
Seems stylistically consistent. Colors are good, but I would push for even more dramatic lighting. She is under tree cover.
True enough I should really start playing with lighting in a far more realistic way, but as it stands I'm currently in that sorta baby bitch "Sorta good at coloring" mindset where I don't want to push my luck
Thank you! And yeah it's on purpose, she's over 8 feet tall. I appreciate the constructive critique though.
I was worried about her torso being too short though. I struggle with that a lot, as well as making arms too short, among other things
I would have increased the shadows for the second half as she’s under tree cover.
Miles ahead of me at least
Btw what software are you using?

A thread for recommending and sharing brushes/digital art assets.

>Publicly editable rentry for CSP assets. Feel free to contribute brushes you have purchased. Assets that have been deleted from the store are also welcome to be uploaded here.

>CSP assets store wishlist

>"What brush does this artist use?" / "What brush looks like this?"
1.)Search "brush (from:artisthandle)" or "assets.clip-studio.com (from:artisthandle)" on twitter if that's where they post mainly. Make sure to set it to the Latest tab to see the artist's tweets. Or use Nitter.
2.)Search brush posts on their Pixiv Fanboxes/Booth/Patreon. Then try to see if it's on kemono or archives.
3.)If none of the searches work, then ask here.

>"My CSP is cracked so I can't use the asset store"
As long as you log into the asset store it works even on cracked copies.

If you want to make copies use the grid method and spent a minimum of 8 hours per portrait.

Why is 99% of /ic/ more interested in social media numbers rather than making good art?
I mean you could argue monetary gain but there are a billion ways to make money with certainty rather than art.
It's like there's this autistic fixation on being a famous artist...except you don't really care for art. Rather you're obsessing over twitter likes than creating anything worthwhile.
I feel like there's this very particular retardation infesting this board.

The issue is most porn artists don't even make good money from it. That's one of the worst things about social media, it shows you success stories over and over again. Survivorship bias is baked into its core.
But then the next question naturally is that if anons just want money, why are they wasting time "getting good"? You should be using every cheat in the book to monetize your garbage. Use AI and advertising and networking to build your empire. Be shameless in your pursuit of wealth, that kind of single-mindedness is respectable in a twisted way. I don't get this board honestly.
>is asking you to consider your integrity
I guess good seems evil to evil
Post your fucking work
I agree with you on that. I have been tracing AI someone trained on my art for a while when Im lazy.
You really have to decide if you want to make money or work on your passion project which will likely not see any kind of success or acclaim.
There's no artists on /ic/.
Some people really don't want to swallow that pill of using "cheat codes" for free money but this is the reality that we currently live in.

Reminder that "pyw" is just an appeal to authority fallacy. The quality of the work posted has no impact on the truth value of what's been said. Anyone who tells you to "pyw" reveals himself to be a /beg/ or, at most, a low /int/, incapable of engaging with the substance of an argument and instead hopes to defeat you by combing for flaws to nitpick, sidestepping the actual discussion entirely.

>Am I insane for thinking it's fairly obvious what works and what doesn't?

No, because any good advice anyone could give about art has already been said 3 centuries ago. What works has been repeated and taught over and over again because they are rooted in objective logic. If you do not understand a concept as a theory you will not be able to apply it even with a masterpiece as a reference.
>well you have the "draw what you see" niggers vs construction

You can do both. And construction helps with drawing from life.

>then you have the copy from artists you like vs copy from life niggers

You can do both. Life drawing establishes the basics and copying refines styles and abstractions

>I won't even start on the discussions of which books are shit and which ones aren't

Try different approaches and determine what works best for you.
If you don't believe in your art, why should we believe in you?
this thread really is exposing how many no draw crabs larp as artists on this board and are feeling personally attacked by a simple PYW

The general thread for Manga / manga-styled comic-making, manga-style illustration and related comic work. That said, everyone is welcome here.

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.

Ty. I've never really tried writing script before until recently. I sort of tried creating panels and stuff and asked a guy to review my stuff. He asks me for a script and I didn't have one lol
So really I think Im looking for beginner resources and maybe really general tips.
There are anons who prefer to just work with the panels and execute the script on the fly as they go along, but other anons (including me) like to plan things out in advance. Doing this allows you to move pages and panels around as needed if something hits a snag, as we're all just mere mortals and make mistakes. Dunno what other anons do specifically, but what I do is I plan the general breakdown of the chapter I'm going to make in bulleted outline form. Then the next thing is to connect the main actions or events that gets us from major plot point in that chapter to major plot point. From there, you then determine what each character is likely to be saying or thinking or doing and voila, you have your script broken down on a page by page basis.
I know this seems like a lot of work, and to a degree it is, but once you start doing it, it becomes second nature and muscle memory. Again, you don't HAVE to do all this, but being able to organize your thoughts has never hurt anyone.
What I do personally is I'll have an idea in my head of how I'm planning things to go and I go straight to storyboarding it with that idea in my head. In this workflow, storyboarding IS scripting, it's where I'm planning it out and making edits/rearranging things. I'm just doing it with visuals instead of descriptive text. I do it this way because it can be difficult to properly plan out a sequence without knowing exactly how much page space I have to do it in, so I need to have it on the page to figure it out.
>but being able to organize your thoughts has never hurt anyone.
I agree in principle but I think in practice a lot of people get tangled up in too many planning stages. I think especially early on, it's better to cut back on the planning and just get to the actual creation asap. Fail faster and all that.
Extensively planning a work is all well and good and makes complete sense when you're doing it for a long serialization and know exactly what you're doing, but if you're still at the point where you're struggling to even figure out what to do then I think it's probably way better to just jump in head first and make all the mistakes you're inevitably going to make and learn from them. Even if the mistake is "I needed to plan this better", you might not be conscious of all the things you need to be aware of in planning something until you find out first hand what happens when you don't.
Yeah I think having a script might give me like a goal/plan. So when I'm paneling/drawing I don't run into some kind of wall of being lost what happens next when the mental sauce or flow runs out. Hence, I think at least writing scripts will help me out or help others give better feedback.
>Even if the mistake is "I needed to plan this better"

Exactly what I ran into

**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.

2: Character design critique and discussion is welcome.

3: Keep it fairly SFW. Lewds are fine but no explicit porn.

4: This is NOT a request thread. Artists ONLY. No spamming original characters/infodumps without proof of prior delivery.

5: Be sure to thank Drawfrens for their hard work as soon as you can, it's just common courtesy :^)

6: Avoid off-topic discussions and DO NOT respond to bait posts.

7: Leave all the chit-chat out unless to thank drawfrens. Draw more and talk less.

I think the key is really to ignore them. They crave attention, when they get none they leave
Possibly. They might just be assholes though.
There are different kinds of them. The ones creating the dumb threads over and over are probably attention craving.

But you also have angry guys with shitty life who are happy to belittle others online to "feel better."

The former has a troublesome sociopath feel, while the later is just dumb blind anger. Hopefully, dumb anger can be corrected, but the sociopath traits may indicate deeper issues.
