Are there any current artists out there that draw in, for lack of a better way of describing it, that really stylized, often flat and geometric artstyle you'd see a lot in 60s and 2000s cartoons? Alternatively, stuff akin to late2000s-2012 action shows (which tend towards less abstract, and are more of a hybrid between the aforementioned style and anime art) would also be acceptable.
I wanna study that type of art, but don't know where to look for it really; not counting like, stills from Clone High or some shit like that.

A lot of normalfags on this board. Just look at /vent/
The most normie boards like /ck/ don't have any of this. Pretty sure it's the fact that /ic/ has a lot of /r9k/ and /pol/ crossboarders for some reason, unless you want to argue incelposters are normalfags now.

Would be interesting to see tier list of artists in general on DAD and compare it to the one made from the tourney, so see how each DAD does under pressure compared to their own time.
tier points
S - 30+ to 35
A - 25+ to 30
B - 20+ to 25
C - 15+ to 20
D - 10+ to 15
E - 5+ to 10
F - 0+ to 5
that art is old, when was this recorded?
Around the time of the self portrait challenge, so mid-March
Two months ago, roughly.

its like inception level excuses, the internet is truly a waste of time and energy

you do mean actual artists right not some female that goes to the basement and just makes something that she likes to call "art" or something your average devian artist on the internet can make and has barely any meaning or content behind it

not trying to side with an opinion but i do not get you saying more female artists atm
Cope woman you're the shittier sex
female artists are more popular atm

I'm trying to compile a list of street fighter/capcom character artists because I've always loved their styles but I can't remember some of their names.Can you please help me compile a list of the legends of the past? Right now the only ones I can remember off the top of my head are:
Daigo Ikeno

Also feel free to post ref as well.

It's a new official art book. You have to be cautious with this one because they've released so many Street Fighter/Capcom artbooks over the years that you realize you're buying the same artwork over and over.

According to the SF20/SF25 artbooks, they divide the Street Fighter artists into two groups: Illustrators, who get huge sections and interviews, and "Other Illustrators" who did some SF work but worked primarily on other Capcom frachises or worked for other companies (like Namco or SNK).

To them, the Main SF illustrators are:
Kin Nishimura

I should also point out that Akiman, Kinu and Ikeno founded the legendary "Capcom Desgin Team" back during the late 80s. Even when they weren't the main artists on games, they still guided the visual look and supervised other artists throughout the 90s.
Yeah good point. Looking it up, it certainly seems to be the case.

Oh damn, thanks for the info. No surprise there as their work is so iconic. Though they've had various talented artists on board, Street fighter has never really hit the same luxurious notes since imo.

I never really got what they were going for with Leon's costume design back then. Was he meant to be SWAT, or something?
Personally I'm a Tatsuya Yoshikawa guy myself

What kind of pen was used in the Akira manga? I want to create a brush that emulates this dirty and textured, yet consistent look
another example of what i mean. i eally like the subtle texture and line variation in this
a lot of manga artists just use a G pen- it wouldnt surprise me if he did the same. they probably have several but with different levels of wear and tear on them, and pick whichever one fits their needs at the moment.

there's a bunch of other nib types that mangaka use, but i wonder if the author ever said what he uses when drawing
It's your typical physical G-pen and maru pens, I'm sure he revealed his tool from some article but it's noting surprising really. Your average mangaka pen set.
you can do all this with a simply quill pen or even a micron, you retarded faggot. theres nothing special about the lines but rather how they are laid down. you will never have linework like this because you do not have line quality like otomos

Once and for all. What do you think is/are the best book(s) to learn anatomy? Or the best author? Is it Vilppu? Is it Bridgman? Is it Bammes? I want to read your opinion and experiences anon.

FPBP. Anatomy for Sculptors and Scott Eatons video courses are the divinities best anatomy resources IMO. Ofcourse you should probably have something like Hampton to help with actual construction as well.
It's Proko ironically.
if youre not stupid and can learn how to visually "finish" shapes with your eyes, then it's bridgman. if youre a moron who needs their hand held, then probably any other book with more precise lines. youre not going to get as many detailed diagrams explaining the body in other ways as bridgman does tho.

I got a few weeks off from work so I'm gonna spend a couple hours each day going through Burne Hogarth's "Drawing Dynamic Hands". I think I read somewhere that when Frazetta was starting out as an artist he learned by copying out all the illustrations from Bridgman's "Constructive Anatomy", so I plan to do the same but with the Hogarth book. I thought it might be interesting to post all my studies in single a thread to record the process (and so that I don't clutter up the draw thread with them)

Hogarth is an artist I've been meaning to study from for a while but never got around to. If you've been procrastinating on studying him too, use this thread as an excuse to sit down and draw! I'm going to go through the book in order from front to back, but I'm sure you could do a study of any of his plates and come away with something. We can crit each other's drawings/share observations maybe. The book is online for free here:

If anyone has any experience drawing from Hogarth or has gone through the book before, critique/general thoughts on his work is very welcome

Hogarth has such a way with adding gesture into his anatomy.
It might be a little counterintuitive but I've been enjoying studying Hogarth as a warmup. His fine details and emphasis on line seem to do a good job preparing me for more drawing.
OP, what other sources have you learnt/studied from? What would you say was the hardest fundamental to overcome for you?

the materials dont make the artist, i'm fuly aware

What is your unpopular art opinion /ic/?

because modern crabs dont care about anatomical inaccuracies as knowing how to nitpick those requires knowledge, they just know how to shit on stuff thats stylized in a way they dont like
spending more time on something you could've learned faster if it were taught isn't a flex either though
"Emotionless" art makes me crab harder than anatomical or perspective errors do. Mistakes are understandable and correctable but shitting out creatively bankrupt drek irritates me to no end.

Planes of the face on asaro don’t exist in real life you retard. Asaro is a conceptual abstraction to help you get out of /beg/

And any other insight would be helpful

I've been in the industry for four years
I liked drawing and animating and thought it'd be neat to make a career out of it. I went to an animation college and got a job once I graduated, a lot of local studios come to the grad show and hire people directly from there. I've been working at the same studio since then.
I do like drawing for my living, but it does get a little bit boring. Sometimes the quotas you have to hit are unreasonable, which can be stressful and leads to working late nights. But I mean... It's just drawing, it's not like I'm busting my ass doing physical labour or anything. Just tedious and mind-numbing at times. The best part is being surrounded by coworkers who also want to draw and animate cool stuff, there's a lot of nice camaraderie (though I've been missing that lately due to COVID forcing everyone to work from home)
Worked in the industry for 10 years. After a while decided it was not for me.

Always wanted to be an animator ever since I can remember. Watching cartoons as a kid and saying to myself, "how do I make this?" and "I wanna do this."
Went into animation in college and decided that it was definitely worth it. Make sure you go to a good school and request to be put into good classes with good instructors. Be involved in your school, apply for internships early and submit to the school festivals. Get together with friends and make short films. Do your research.
Part 2

I really liked doing something I'm passionate about. Something at my core that I can put 100% into was an amazing feeling. The people I worked with for the most part had the same drive and passion for the work as I did. On a good project, every day felt like hanging out with your best friends and working on something cool together. I actually couldn't wait until Monday to get back to work.

There were a lot of jaded old fucks who couldn't hack it at Disney or DreamWorks and decided to shit on us young kids. They would blame shit on us and make us want to quit early. Not my fault your old ass couldn't get with the times and switch from traditional to 3D. Nor did they really care.

The contract style work got old real quick too. Aside from working on big studio projects, looking for new work every few months really sucked. The smaller studios abused the shit out of you, making you work 1099 when they knew it was illegal. Projects falling apart because management sucked or couldn't bid on projects properly. Outsourcing from LA to other countries. Elitist attitudes from mentors, especially in bigger studios like Disney/Pixar or Sony.

At my low point, I was getting calls on Sunday night to go into work on Monday for week-long projects. Then they would put you on hold and not pay you. After that I decided I've had it and switched careers. I still do creative things on the side and honestly couldn't be happier.

With all that said, if you have a passion, I say go for it. But forget about your personal life, you'll have to be in it 100% to make it.
Very interesting, thank you anon!
What do you do now (if it's not too intrusive)?
Like I said its a small studio so I feel weird about posting the name on here. im in L.A though.
>But forget about your personal life, you'll have to be in it 100% to make it.
also, this is pretty much unfortunately true. animation is so time consuming, I'd say moreso than pretty much any other visual medium. your work becomes your life
