I keep having to remind myself to loosen my pencil grip when drawing, and I still end my drawing sessions with hand pain and sometimes shoulder and arm pain. It sucks because I can't get better if I can't draw. Pls help.

Take breaks often and do stretches for your shoulders and wrists. Look up carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, and shoulder tendonitis stretches. At the very least you should do them every 2 hours.

>>5245537
kek you'd think someone would take a little more time to find a more unique ref for something they're gonna have tattooed on their skin for the rest of their life.

how long do these kind of tattoos last anyways? doesn't all that detail smudge later? or has tattoo tech improved since then?
>>
>>5245503
Pretty much study up on styles learn the lingo, learn some basic dermatology, study the history of tattoos, pretty much study every aspect, get a solid portfolio of work that resembles a style you might wanna be known for, then find a local artist that super talented don’t settle, and get some work by them then build a relationship with that artist tip them,talk .share a photo or two if you bring up the topic of your art, just do it casually and not right away, pretty much don’t go in begging and acting like a twat it’s annoying

You mean like draw a second rectangle and use its centre as the other point to define the line? Or would that be cheating as well, and you're supposed to just eyeball it?

I really admire artists who create simple works which still convey everything needed. I think this requires far more talent and skill than someone just mindlessly reproducing a photograph.

Digital is better than traditional as a learning tool. Digital allows you to check your work for mistakes quicker and more conveniently than traditional. Undoing mistakes is also much faster than erasing, making it so that you fail more in a shorter amount of time, which leads to you getting better at drawing.
This is why you see so many zoomers who are so good at drawing.

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.

how much more time does coloring add to the manga making process?

I want to avoid it if possible, because atm its taking me like 4 hours to color one page and I'm sure I'm not doing it right, but if I were to practice and learn the proper workflow how long would it take? Especially for detailed pages with backgrounds

I don't think you should abandon your previous idea completely though. I could see it working well if you wanted to develop a stylization that went for really extreme colors.
