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

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.

Previous thread: >>6478292

>If I publish my own books so why would I fire myself? I simply state that I have deadlines.
Yes, self-set deadlines. I'm saying that's a different beast from external deadlines (ie those set and enforced by anything other than yourself, such as a contest submission deadline or a publisher deadline).
As you said, why would you fire yourself? Therefore if you slip, there are no real consequences, it just comes out late and fans aren't all that happy. This is why it's silly to say it's the same thing.

Ok I see what you're saying anon. I make less money if I miss my deadlines which matters to me-but I don't get fired. Other people who miss their deadlines do get fired. Je comprends.

Jokes aside that's reasonable, good to see you're making money with your art.

>>6500946
Yeah it's the double-edged sword of depending on comic work for my income. On one hand, I get to do what I'm passionate about all the time without having to work a day job, but on the other hand everything I make is drawing from the same well, so I can't just draw whatever takes my fancy in the moment.

Generally speaking, what's stopping permabegs from learning how to draw something like picrel? Maybe not everybody is cut out to draw like the old masters, but surly everybody can draw competent cartoon characters given a small amount of practice.

Lazyness, and i speak from experience.
I could draw masterpieces already if weren't lazy.
I don't go to the gym when need to, I don't draw everyday, I don't do the basic task list i put to myself.
Maybe it was the pandemic or I'm just to spoiled in life. But I'm trying to work on it

It’s a misconception that drawing cartoons is easy mode just because it’s not as complex as realism. It took me years of filling sketchbooks with form studies and drawing cartoon characters using construction methods via picrel to finally become proficient at it. I spent my 20s doing this just to get good at drawing cartoons. Finally toward my latter 20s, I was able to draw stylized cartoons that looked good and not like wonky permabeg studies with terrible line control and flawed understanding of volumes.

There are still fundamentals that need to be learned, instilled and fully integrated. This takes years. It’s not a simple matter of “cartoons are simple so that means they’re easy”. Permabegs have no concept of volume or line control, which are essential precursors to drawing ANYTHING pleasant.

>>
>>6500804
As someone who has been a drawfag for a long time: I have an easier time when I draw for someone but I hate asking followers or even patrons for requests. In a drawthread nobody is expecting a delivery. I can always bail out without making anyone angry.
Also anons are the only ones that give honest feedback.

Gonna be honest with you op, most I’ve made off commissions was 40k over the course of 5 years, and that was when business was good. Since then I’ve made 100 here and there but nothing substantial. Do yourself a favor and go get a regular job if you need a paycheck. Art is just a hobby for 95% of artists, lest you count yourself among the lottery winners of the art world.

can someone recomend me good brushes for inking? (dont have to be an actual ink tool) i trying to start to draw again, but left everything as a sketch because im too dumb to make a good brush myself
>>
>>6497051
when i start downloading a lot of brushes i keep doing this, too. what i did to fix it was to limit myself to only two brushes: one hard round, and one soft blendable oil
also experiment more with what the digital medium can offer, like the fill tool, select tool, gradient map, filters, effects, etc
>>
>>6500971
what settings are optimal? How can I limit myself to one brush if its a bad brush? I need to know what good artists use but they just open the program and immediately start drawing without even thinking about brushes.

You can use HandBrake to compress the files. Probably better off not leaking the method you used to record it, they'll patch it.

Told myself I'd draw today. Did nothing instead.

And no I didn't play video games or watch videos, I literally did NOTHING. I just looked at the front page of various sites and closed/reopened blank tabs for 6 hours. Just imagining what drawing would be like if I could actually plug the tablet in and start. I even took a bath just to not draw, I cleaned my apartment just to get out of drawing. Its like my entire existence is just avoiding as much as possible
