I really appreciate the color palette in this one. The lighting is also excellent. The lemons are a nice touch. More of this? Doesn't have to be the "anime" style, moreso the mood it evokes.

Give it to me straight. How hard is it to learn Japanese, and to becoming a professional mangaka, serialized in a weekly or monthly magazine?
38 replies and 7 images omitted. Click here to view.
Very hard, you can do it but you will probably never work for a big magazine, most non japanese mangaka do straight to tankobon short stuff or very short series, its easier becoming an animator thanks to twitter but the pay is shit (it can get better if you have experience but not so much)
Why would anybody here know how to answer any of this? Are you really this fucking retarded LMAO?
A big nosed italian man did it while on that Terrace House show
Being ESL is a badge of honor.
Being not a JSL, but an aspiring JSL is just pathetic.
I don't even get that need to get published by someone in Japan, if your shit is good just post it on Twitter and open a patron. That's a million times more achievable than becoming a fucking mangaka lmao

How does its engine compare to the popular ones? I mean strictly in terms of painting and drawing, no text manipulation or vectors.

It usually gets high score in yt ranking vids but when I look up art made in krita it's all mid at most, even their splash screen is low-end mid, but I'm reluctant to blame it all on the software, it could be the user base. You can have the best brushes and still do crap job with them. If it's good, why there is not many who use it?

IDK, has anyone used it along other programs long enough to tell about things like stroke sensitivity, color blending, texture clarity etc?
211 replies and 21 images omitted. Click here to view.
What are you talking about? All programs have a minimum brush size setting, 1 pixel.
I don't use Krita because the UI is dogshit
I want 5, or 10
type 5 or 10 into the size box, it's not like this need much effort, you don't even need to open brush editor for it.
there is a forum for that https://krita-artists.org/

maybe shortcut composer can do the hardness drag? idk it has many cool shortcuts using mouse tracking

Is this good character design
Toriyama is proof that developing a unique style is more important than character design. The designs are fine enough, but put them in a more generic style and they’d look lame.

>Tomoko was only created as yuri bait, there's nothing deep about it,

Obviously, nobody would watch an anime where the protagonist is ugly as sin. It still gets the point across, unlike Bocchi the Reddit.

Damn. Watamote aired in 2013. 11 years ago. Also Tomoko did slowly come out of her shell in her manga.

That's why she's suffering.

Robert oster motor oil. It’s a green brown, but if you use a water brush it turns into a pinkish red.
Doesn’t reactivate after it dries. Means you can do color over it.

Pixel art is cool. Even if it's a gimmicky thing based on old video games. If you really want to make it , go for it.
There may even be a software to Pixelate your regular art , I don't know.

I'm a total beginner but I've either seen people overwhelmingly recommend Andrew Loomis or say that he's overrated and you should look elsewhere. The only book I've purchased for myself so far though is this one and it's pretty good.
I live in NY and there are no end of life drawing nights but the models are always whales or old. I dont want to draw roasties or ham planets. Where are the hot life drawing classes at for actual young people? Im sick of this city being raided by boomers and gen xers.

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.

I dunno there's only so much big boobs can do. Most of my girls are well endowed but I mean Fuuko for example is stacked and no doubt she's sexy but she doesn't come off as sexualized in promo illustrations. That's probably why that series has more female fans than usual for a shonen. I just want to catch attention from the younger crowd since attention is the hardest to get. Which girls from which series are teens gooning to these days?
Like what the other guy said, posing and anatomy is important especially with drawing women. You'll have to go the extra distance and learn about fat deposits and stuff. But ultimately it'll come down to preference. Draw what you think is hot rather than what you think other people will find hot. Your drawings will come out better.
I think AECAST Anon is the best example. But if I have to say, think first in the female form; give more attention to the curves and the fat in the right places. Just like some loli artists draw children with a body full of curves of an adult woman or teen girl but dress her like a child. Also, pay attention to fashion and body language. In conclusion, I would say the trick is to draw in a way that captures the natural and genuine attraction men have for women. Idk if this helped, but yeah
>If you sketch out a whole comic, whats the motivation to finish it?
that's a question for yourself, anon. there's nothing wrong with having a comic that's full sketches as long as they're as readable as you say they are.
for me, i just don't go too refined in the sketching phase so that i don't burn myself out when sketching every little detail to the point that inking feels somewhat unnecessary, and i also use it as a place to test out some different design concepts (e.g. what if i added some more visible muscles on this already muscular character?) or refine in some details that i may've been unsure about earlier because the thumbnail was too messy, so that when i get to the inking phase i know more about how i'd want the end panel to actually look like.
you are fucking retard, if that was true everyone here will be just using IA
