Not deliberate poses, but something like slouching, leaning or stuff like that. An example like the pic

Toshi's book sometimes has these kind of natural poses. But it's because he's animator, so he could draw it naturally. A lot of illustrators tend to search for the right pose/most appealing pose, but animators just draw what's natural. So obviously, you want to know how animators learn all that stuff.

The answer is: Croquis, it helps you with drawing natural gesture through observation. Do Croquis everyday, even 10 minutes everyday will help you improve. Hide Channel, another good channel aside from animeshijuku, is really helpful resource for anyone who's aiming for animators' style (the key here is animator, not illustrator).

what does your parents think your drawing?

I just want to die peacefully. Please!!
I was born at age 6 without a face
Mine ripped up my drawings as a kid, made sure they did everything they could to make sure I didn't get anywhere with it, and then forced me to get a worthless degree that doesn't mean shit. Also didn't let me play with other children growing up so I was too socially stunted to attempt to run away or do anything against them.
My parents don't really care, because they don't like the kind of artwork I do, every so often when I do a pet portrait or something that normies like they say it's good.
But when it comes to my fantasy art or children's book art they don't like it because of the content, they also constantly say they wish I'd "do something" with my art, when I'm trying...

>What I'm wondering about is:
>-Can the wacom tablet plug into a PC and run using only a usb and no power adapter? (I remember hearing about that)
Some tablets can run on just USB and HDMI but the screen won't be on or at best it will be restricted to 50% brightness.
>-Can the Huion do this? I have seen no mention of this
Again see above. It will either be capped at 50% brightness or it will work with the screen off. This depends on what model you're talking about but I haven't used one yet that won't work at bare minimum with the screen off when there is no power.
>-Is Huion compatible with android phones to be able to set up a mobile station?
Some huions are, yes. I think their 13" kamvases with the usb-c to usb-c connect to android, you can check on the compatibility section of their pages. The only wacom cintiq that does this is the wacom one and it's awful in every way (and isnt even true wacom emr)
>I have heard Wacom is compatible with Android phones this way, but haven't seen anything saying Kamvas Huion pro 16 can
No, not all wacoms do that, only the wacom one and one other model of screenless tablet of theirs. Yes there are huion displays that do. No, yours is not one of them. Oh and by the way, whether you are using a wacom one or a kamvas that connects to android, you need to get a power bank for the tablet. Your phone won't power them alone.
>So, if it's true that Huion requires being plugged in all the time with no ability to just use USB and it's also true that Huion is incompatible with Android - what advantage can it still claim over a Wacom One?
You can plug the power usb into your computer, it doesn't have to be hooked up to a power outlet.
>Kamvas pro 16 can't just simply be inferior to Wacom One, can it? I need to decide whether to keep my Kamvas pro 16 or just trade it in...
>...I mean, it has hotkey buttons on the side unlike the Wacom One - that should be handy, right?
Yes hotkeys are nice. You can get a hotkey remote though.
>Can the wacom tablet plug into a PC and run using only a usb and no power adapter? (I remember hearing about that)
>-Can the Huion do this? I have seen no mention of this

Display tablets come with a usbc cable or a usb to hydra cable (this is a cable that splits from the tablet to a usb for cursor control, an hdmi, and a usb for powering the screen), USB wall charger and usually a USB extender cable. It's 100% possible to skip the charger/extension cable and just plug the USB and power USB into your laptop or PC. I do this with my XP pen. I can even use it without the power USB plugged in to anything if I want but it lowers brightness to use it like that.
This senseless headache is precisely why practically all professionals rely on the Apple iPad Pro 12.9.
By the time you posted all this, the Apple iPad Pro 12.9 artist have just finished their fifth artwork. You accomplished nothing.
Disagree, I use my Huion new1060plus(8192) since 3 years.
I am "afraid" of Chinese products, but I only had to change the cable, and last update was shit but now it's fixed.
Really, no problem with this ref.

I'm pretty sure all of them are just shitposters.
Next time the MEGA is up, does it make sense to report dupes if they're taking up GBs of space? The Brent Eviston folder contained 3 courses of which 2 seemed to be the same, but I didn't download and check the files.
Didn't tonyo take an existing 1.5 TB mega and add on to it? He didn't do the whole thing himself, some guy on art kings discord server had that mega posted on the server half a year before tonyos name was even said.
Apparently the dude uploaded it on really shitty internet and took him more than a few months to finish it
did anyone clone btw?
Yes, it was cloned many times.

How can i achieve these style? What's the technique behind it artist: mauroz he's new artworks are bad but im talking about his 2010 or so art.

It will become illegal to draw coomart. Your federally mandated castration drugs will stifle any desire to. It's the next step of our evolution and ascension beyond our primitive animal ancestors. We artists will advance exponentially without the distraction of coomart. It will be good. So stop drawing coom.

The general thread for Manga / manga-styled comic-making and Manga-style illustration.

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.

Oh yeah of course I make sure to get in SOME comic practice now.
It's very odd to mention but someone approached me 6+ months ago for a porn fetish comic commission, at the time I told them that I'm a beginner so the drawings will look very rough compared to my more referenced drawings and they said thats fine, so basically after I did a page they were happy and I thanked them because it was my first attempt at a comic page, so over time they increased the monthly commission to 5 pages so that's been my "comic" practice. Unfortunately they're private and I'd be kinda embarrassed to post them anyway, but it has been teaching me a bit about the flow of drawing a story board and paneling, even if restricted due to the subject
So that aside, I spend a lot of my time drawing characters and finished colored pieces digitally, and I started practicing traditionally too, recently finishing perspective made easy and starting morpho grinding, along with casual figure practice (though its been a few days since that because I've been really busy with other drawing things)
And yeah i get your frustration with mmos. 4 years ago I was addicted to MMO, I played them every day for two years. One day I watched an anime called recreators and it reminded me that I gave up on my dreams to be a good artist and wasted my time away playing games, so I've been at the grind every day now and play games less than an hour a week
That’s true. I guess if I were to distill what I said into a simple point it’s:

Write what you wanna write, by all means. First and foremost, it should come from the depths of your soul. But simultaneously, don’t be a selfish writer. Considered WHO you’re writing it for. It shouldn’t be for you. So always keep the reader experience and target audience in mind, regardless of what you write.
I think I remember seeing a line that goes like..
“Don’t write what you want for yourself, write what you want for your audience because you’ll end up writing for yourself as well anyway” or some whacky advice like that, I feel conflicted about it but it’s also pretty funny because I can see how true it would be, self consciously writing what you love no matter what if you have your head on your shoulders
>Anytime someone frames an issue as being about class conflict and oppressors and the oppressed they are taking a Marxist viewpoint.
So, Hegel was Marxist before Marxism was a thing by bringing up the Master-Slave dialectic? And so was Nietzsche for doing similar? That’s just so confused. If anything, Marx took a Hegelian position and view of history, based centred around forces vying for power.

Right this very second, there are artists dripping with anticipation for the Nintendo Direct in 2 hours.

They've taken the day off. They've got drinks nearby. They've picked out a pose, set of brushes and general design so when the direct happens and some new female character is shown whether it's from Zelda or some other series, they can screenshot the character mid direct, smash together lines, colours and shading. With saliva dangling from their lips, they'll post it to twitter, hoping desperately that they can be the first artist to draw the new meme coomer character in some ridiculous half naked contorted pose, to have artwork that's trending, to have all that clout.

Why are you not that artist?

Why You Should Copy Anime:

**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.

Primarily just anatomy knowledge, but you can draw the muscles in different styles aswell.

The hard part is the balance between buff as fuck and cute in my opinion.

Still trying to figure this out myself but I guess consult many references you think look nice and analyze how they drew it.

I think a lot of the appeal lies in the abs so you should focus a lot on that point.

i think i got the arm to look right but i'm still not sure about the rest lol
The arm is lacking energy for that sort of pose. Try pushing it out more. Imagine if you were leaping off something carrying a heavy gun in one arm. Your non carrying arm will naturally be more pushed out to keep the landing balanced.

Nah, I started drawing because I had fun participating in one of those "draw a vidya character in ms paint and other other anons guess who it's supposed to be" threads /v/ has from time to time.
>does not want to draw from realism, goes straight into drawing animu

Guilty, but for what it's worth, I made a drawing of pic related once because I thought it would be funny

I've never traced anything
