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.

When doing perspective drawings work with a ruler please.

Somewhat okay in the sense that you can read them properly. They are not in good propotions and very western style though.

it amazes me that anyone here knows how to breathe, let alone draw.
He was very nice and even paid over what I was asking because it was degenerate shit, and I didn't stop because I didn't want to draw his shit, it's because I start and stop drawing every few months with no reason why. I guess I can come back and offer to do a com for free as a way of apology, I don't want to lose a customer I'm just autistic.

What is this pussy shit thread WHO CARES

Cars are too nuanced for me to draw confidently. I can draw helicopters, fighter jets, tanks, no problem, but two angular blocks on wheels stumps me.
Are there any good tutorials on gesture drawing cars?

I'm working on my pen control. My hand hurts. Goal is to retrain myself not to use my wrist so much.

Post your practice. Whether it be studies, anatomy, or just line-control exercises.

Try modifying your pen grip in a way that makes it more difficult to draw with your wrist/fingers. Holding your pen in a modified grip different from your "writing" grip also makes it easier to refrain from using "writing" motions while drawing that have been wired into your muscle memory.
My favored grip is to let the barrel of the pen rest lightly between my index & middle fingers, pinching the end between the tips of my middle, index, and thumb. The grip is stable, steady, requires barely any pressure from your fingers, and it's more conducive to drawing from the shoulder while still allowing you to draw from your wrist when you need to.
you are likely:
A. death gripping the pen

B. pressing too hard from hard pen dynamics (turn it off or configure the pressure curve to be more soft, so you only have to use a tiny amount of pressure to hit the full range)

C. not taking enough breaks. every 30 minutes, stop, standup, stretch, close and then spread your fingers a few times, do wrist curls a few times (dont need weights), etc.

>My hand hurts.
Remember to take regular breaks. The pain is your body's way of telling you that it's been damaged.
Saved this a time ago. Also you need a high chair or low table to draw from shoulder and not using your wrist. Because it's hard to not use wrist when you elbow lies on the table.

Non-artists are often spoken of, for they are most often the target audience of art. Art is appreciated by artists, but in a different way than the regular non-artist.
The word non-artist is cumbersome and sounds funny, should there not be a word for non-artists?
So is there a word for non-artists? The Chinese call non-Chinese Laowai, the Japanese call non-Japanese Gaijin. The Jews call us Goyim.
Also, a question: I have noticed that nearly all of my social media followers are other artists instead of the regular non-artist, and it seems to be the same for most other artists. Why is this?

I came today with a discovery that some of you may enjoy, a large amount of scans of John Singer Sargent drawings. https://harvardartmuseums.org/collections?person=28495&sort=rank
The thing i find interesting though is that, if some of these dates are to be believed, he had some really crude and even amateurish looking drawings during a time when he had already made or was making some of his best work, and i dont understand how. i wonder if he was the type of artist that couldnt draw fast and all of those were first take quick sketches that just came out like dogshit because his tempo was off. some of these drawings must be from his youth but not all.
regardless, it puts me at ease seeing people i admire not being on top for every piece, its also interesting to look under the hood.

Very shiny! What's your process like?
I did a sketch, then I've just been lassoing and using an airbrush to shade largest to smaller areas. I went from black and white to color in Photoshop.
The shininess feels really easy to capture working from dark to light slowly building up value.

Did this last night
She's inserting a black dildo into her dickhole and it comes out of her futa vagina
You're absolutely disgusting and should be shot, but I can somewhat respect your insanity
Ew. What you covered with that black square?

How do you cope as a serious creator/hobbyist that social media is increasingly being marketed towards kids/tees? That it’s no longer an appropriate place for art?

Seriously, I’m not even being snobby, but how does it feel that your art gets mogged by minors doing shitty tiktoks/reels, and dumb 10 second memes of le funny reaction vids. That epic magnum opus you spent 2 weeks on? Oops we have to nerf it to make way for the oncoming torrent of teenagers posting pics of their asses on the beach because that gets us more traffic and “engagement”.

From now on I won’t even post to social media, because it cheapens what I do. Instead you’ll have to come to an art exhibition to see it, or is that the “art elitism” wankery we’ve fought so hard to tear down? Well, maybe it had a point. Maybe art IS for the elite.

Although after all, I guess I’m just pissing in the wind posting this on a board for coom artists.

Didn't finish reading, but Social Medias were never supposed to be for art, the art platforms were Deviantart, Newgrounds and personal blogs.

People moved to social media in order to chase normalfags' attention, so competing with their leachate is only natural, stop being a zoomzoom nigger crybaby.
damn, how would all workers in deeply established careers have felt when they had to pick up and switch to computers and the www for the first time to remain solvent in a market flooded with young people who grew up using them and felt them as natural as breathing? like a freshwater fish whose brook has been emptied into the ocean. most fishy species can’t survive such salinity. harshest sink or swim circumstances and yeah
i feel you op
i’m older even here and end up interacting with really little kids, it’s like they’re me a decade or decade and a half ago, with all the same inexperience and issues still to come. starting to understand the feel of being left behind, or no longer fitting into your skin because the world’s up and changed on you while you were just doodling things. i’m probably still too young to say all of this, though. my senior generation would give me an ‘if only you knew’ expression.
You seem not to be aware that, among other things, besides the wolfs, there were some shepherds guiding the herds.

They still are some, locally, but they aren't trendy anymore, as the herd has been convinced by foxes that wolves and sharks were better shepherds kek.

TL;DR your views of history were created by wolves.

maybe the writing trounces the art?

anyway, sometimes the more amateurish art can be a selling point as it could be considering charming or maybe even "hey you could do it too!". see: the heta-uma movement
It wasn't critically acclaimed when he started drawing it.
And if you don't like the way it looks, then you don't have to read it. Nobody has a gun to your head.
It's a comic. Gasoline Alley didn't have to look like Prince Valiant to be popular, it's more important for it to match the tone and contents of the story than for it to be technically impressive. In some cases it could even detract from the end result.

Because the japanese animation and manga industry is deeply routed in successful long running IPs that look like pic related.
Japan is accustomed to this kind of stuff so instead of being turned off by Ranking of Kings, they're charmed by it.
Japanese audiences are a lot more forgiving and willing to take a chance on new properties when it comes to comics in contrast to American audiences that are generally close minded retards with bad taste.
Don't want to sound like another "filthy gaijin" poster but its true. Americans have the worst taste in the world and being a big influence on the west, that shit spreads to other countries like Australia where I live.
The original One Punch Man comic would have fucking fizzled out and died at chapter 1 if all that changed was that it was made and published in Chicago.
