Hi /ic/, I saw this video about removing Intellectual Property. I was wondering what you all might have to say, given that many of you are fellow artists of the idea of removing IP in totality? Personally I am against it, however I am but one non-posting retard amongst a sea of madness. I can name lots of reason I think it would totally fuck up lots of things, but as for small creators my frame of reference is limited.

How would this affect you and your art?

It does not affect anyone here since nobody here produces anything worth of being called art, artwork, or whatever you want to call it, merely badly drawn stuff that is a disgrace for the trees used for the paper.

Sorry man, not intended as a bait thread, just trying to understand what some other people think is all

what are some good ways to practice lighting? I feel like I don't have a good understanding of being able to point a light source at my drawing and mentally visualize where the light is hitting. is there a book or video series that really drills this in?

Just because he doesn't get it yet doesn't mean you have to act like a fool pretending as if you knew it from the start.
don't be a faggot. simple as
Fuck society
Nah I'm with him. If you have any interest in learning art you have to be pretty thick in the head to not consider what a still life is. Drawing from life in general is some "Step 1.)" shit.

OP if you want to understand lighting you need to understand how shadows are cast first. and before you learn how to draw cast shadows you need to learn how to draw things in perspective because you said you "don't have a good understanding" of "mentally visualize where the light is hitting" which is a smart way of saying "I don't know what I'm doing."

So first you need to draw things in perspective. Everything in drawing comes back to perspective because that is the basis of all modeling. If you can't draw something in perspective then you can't draw a cast shadow.

Start with perspective. Then move on to cast shadows. You clearly haven't learned perspective yet so don't try bothering yourself with cast shadows.

Your design is very cool, but I want to invite you to exaggerate more.
I tried to keep the design as is, but gave CLEAR shapes to the elements, increasing overlap and things that stick out, making for an interesting/recognizable silhouette.
After all, if you added them as part of the design, you might as well make full use of them to help you. Even the feet could be turned from a circle into a more complex form.
But mainly the head, by repositioning the "crown" and making the ears jut out a little bit more, I think the readability is greatly increased.

Very cool design, anon, thingies and all.

WOAH, this looks very nice, anon, thank you. There's something about her curls' weight that gets to my heart.
Also nice silhouette, which is the theme of my post.

like da.
The only interesting thing about this is the colours.
Where's your lightsource ?
The breasts are different in shape and do not match, whats with the position and thickness of her arm closest to us?
Did you even think about composition?
I like the shapes and the contrast in this one. However, I'm not a fan of the small sharp lines in your shadows
By that i mean look at the left palm, hip, under the breasts, the kneecaps and the left foot. Do you see it? It gives the body a cut-out feel, like it was cut from paper. Strange that the light parts are so well worked out and the shadows just fall flat.
So to take away: work on shadowstudies of soft objects, focus on how light in the shadows itself work and how that translates volume of an object.

Good luck!

the OP ´posted Vilppu's gesture sketches in a way that implied that was the extent of Vilppu's skill which is not, thats why i said "make him look bad", it isnt that the gestures are bad for what they are, its the OP implying they are his skill

I know this seems like a bait or a meme question but I'm actually being genuine.

I have an issue that when I go to draw girls and women, I get horny and can't fucking focus and I have to go fap. But then after I get done falling I lose all my motivation to finish my drawing.

So basically I mostly just draw pipes and fruit because I can't get threw a complete drawing of an attractive woman.

I want to be able to draw sexy girls, but I keep having this issue. Are comer artist just desensitized to it? I dont know how you could draw good lewds and attractive characters without a sex drive.

Anyone have any tips?
13 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
It doesn't matter if there are any tips or solutions to your problem. If you are a dickbrain of this calibre, then your art will never be worth anything, espeically not a serious answer to your question.
Maybe you will eventually grow up and out of your current dickbrain status, but at that point it will probably be too late to make any significant progress.
Just find a different hobby or accept the fact that you will never be a good artist. End of story.
Now go play some videogames and watch porn, dickbrain.
this. fapping to your shit means you're way too good, or content with mediocrity. you shouldn't be, even for fap material.

i'll be very happy when i'll find my stuff to be fapworthy, but i know it won't be soon.

>content with mediocrity
I got this when I'm horny, oftentimes I even think about how bad the anatomy or perspective of some booru art is while fapping to itand it doesn't kill my boner at all
I just think about baseball.

In the drawing

Construction of elements and forms: it is based on replicating physical elements for a greater variety of angles and construction of 3d planes within a 2d spectrum.
Anatomy: it is based on the knowledge of the function of the movement of the muscles and bones to raise coherent figures, solid bases to recreate styles from the most complex to the simplest.
gesture: composition through loose lines to have a deep understanding of the flow of movement.

anons leave the ngmi and do not put one concept above another, everything is important.

Try closing your eyes, I'm not kidding. I know what youre talking about I get frustrated at how similar all my shapes look. If I close my eyes for some part of the drawing it adds an element of randomness, and usually I like it better.

Get better at drawing first, you aren't that far off from good enough for comms tho.
Get into a specific hobby community like tabletop or maybe a forum for pet owners or whatever where artists are rare.

how does one paint digitally? i use csp and i cant figure it out - i do sketch then color then shade and change all the lines to like a red/brown yet it mixing it all looks so muddy i want to paint like something this art by @NineV_ on twit and etc but im not sure how and i cant find any tutorials

1. make roughly visible sketch
2. clean up lines
3. pick flat colour for what you draw
4. fill inside or even paint over lines
5.pick 2nd flat color to define shapes
6. use soft brush to blend and smooth out the edges
7. cover yourself in oil

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.

I would suggest avoid copying Togashi. Basically the way it works is, in Japan he’s an expert and we’re beginners. He’s allowed to break the rules because he’s already got a fanbase. When you’re an amateur you should try to stick to the standard rules as much as possible.

I thought of the same things when I read his email, but I understand where it’s coming from and why he was so strict on keeping it smooth and easy to read. Part of it is a status thing, where, as a rookie your work essentially has zero merit until it’s been validated by the public, but also, BECAUSE you have to draw in that audience first. People who are already invested will put up with a lot cause they wanna follow the story, but when there’s no investment, there’s no way you’ll get them to chug through.

> 「文字多すぎる・コマが多すぎる・絵の情報量が多すぎる」は新人の漫画が読んでもらえない最大の原因です。1フキダシの中に8文字×3行以内を守り、その24文字フキダシを絶対に連続させない。7コマあるページは作っても良いが、その度に読者が減ると考えておく。「キャラ・背景・吹き出し」が全部入っていているページを連続させない&小さいコマにその3要素を入れない。これは最低限守りましょう。

General idea is, “you can break these rules if you like, but expect the number of readers to decrease each time you do,” is how he put it.
