Why do anime stylized eyes that look disproportionately large look decent sometimes, yet horrible and close to symbol drawing in other times? Is there something I'm missing after studying realistic eyes/placement?

The irony of HxH having the most interesting and fun scene out of these examples. I like that he doesn't use lots of boring screentones like the others, going for a balance of black and white instead.

it's a shit example but the ideas are there, no?
If you come from realistic background the anime heads seem swollen.
if you look at the mouth area, it's actually really uncanny if you think about it. giant engorged heads to accomodate the massive eyeballs.

stop me if i'm not making sense. we use this logic to create models for 3D anime like final fantasy.

yeah i got this manga book in the book catalogue as a kid. Luckily my friend borrowed it and I forgot about it so I never got into drawing with it.

sad thing is if you look up her current works, it's very similar but still not very good. Her style is stuck in mid 2000s white people draw anime style
>>
>>2912214
because sometimes they are symbol drawing. Even if you distort the proportions there are still a lot of subtle details that need to be taken into account. People who can't draw a normal eye properly from a certain angle can't draw a distorted one either.

This doesn't bother me because by the time a robot is capable of doing art at the level of a human (in terms of creativity) it'd effectively be human

And by this point also, humanity might be integrating with machinery

I always liked challenges as a kid because I knew they make me better, so I tend to avoid guidelines which brought me the same kind of shit

the worst part?

we didn't have actual art teacher, but just an music teacher which knew jack shit about drawing and she would put us to copy painting from books by numbers, like we were playing some kind of song note by note. And she would get mad when I tried to actually learn something, by breaking down the painting in elements and layers.

Looking at my pic for an hour before bed usually, and during the day too. Can't stand the urge. Usually notice a lot of mistakes, inconsistencies, get new ideas. But don't overdo it, you need fresh eyes when you get to drawing again.

So I've got this offer to make all the assets for an isometric strategy game.

Now as all of the leets here i have dreams of being a concept artist and getting asspats for my awesome designs, not about a being a worker drone churning out house variations.

I have offers to do more of the kind of stuff i want to do but i'm having trouble turning this one down, smells like laziness you know?

So the question is is this kind of work woth getting into? Anybody have any experience doing work like this? How long did it take until you felt like blowing you brains out?
>>
How much money are you going to make and do you need it.
>>
>>2913678
Not a lot and no not really, im pretty stable financially atm

I'm just wondering if this is one of those areas where you can go to make money when the other stuff hits a dry spell. Like 3D guys doing kitchen renders...

This is something you can put on your resume to say you have experience with game development. If you're getting paid and you have the spare time, do it.

>>2913675
>not about a being a worker drone churning out house variations.

You know a lot of people in the industry start out like this? Don't look down on it so much, making game assets is a good way to get some experience and looks good on your resume.

the balance is kinda weird. the vocal track is too low, and not very clear. bad sound.
the album cover is beyond salvage, pay someone who can actually draw.
