sub view inside the program, also pureref is a good program for your reference.

**Don’t aimlessly study the fundamentals or anime. Learn the fundamentals (form, values, color, composition, etc.) through properly copying anime.**

How to study anime/get better at imagination drawing/obtain a style/etc.:
>Find an anime reference you like (an illustration, screenshot, anime figure, 3D model, etc.)
>Find learning material that will help you reconstruct your ref using simpler fundamental elements
>Trace the ref using that construction
>Copy the ref using that construction
>Draw the ref from memory that using construction
>Repeat the process for the same ref multiple times and mix in other refs
>After studying a lot of refs, drawing from your head will become easier

**Focus on Tracing/Copying/Memory drawing the big shapes/values/elements first then later worry about the finer details. Focus on only a portion of a complex ref first then move on to studying the full ref.**

General anime style discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.

Hi ic, haven't really been following the art community for a good two years, and as a result I am quiet out of touch with current popular artist. Who are currently considered as really good, are people still about krenz and ruan jia etc or has a new wave emerged? If so please post these new artists.

what is even the idea behind this picture
is she an angel? a demon? a slutty succubus? a sorcerer? a warrior? a priestess? where is she? who is she fighting?
the answer is this artist cannot tell a story and furthermore does not know what a good story is so they overcompensate with the most over the top imagery possible to hide the fact that nothing is really going on in the picture.

>I have both an apple pencil 1.0 (long story) and a wacom intuos small
>poorfag in third world country

With my budget is either a cheap laptop like the Hp 14-CK0001LA or an ipad.

Ipad: I like the ipad becuase it's so conforable to draw in the screen. But I know apple will fuck me over in 2-3 years with planned obsolence. Procreate will stop updating for me and I will be locked out of the appstore.

Laptop: 4gb of ram 500 gb storage. With Acess to Krita and CSP AND Torrents is super tempting. But at this price I suspect the lapptop will be too cheap and cause me a lot of headaches.

What's best if I just want to draw and write for work?
>>
Cheap laptop 100%

My laptop juat died and now i have to use this fucking tablet for everything and its small and sucka and doesnt have photoshop i would trade in a heartbeat
>>
>>4029923
That's a great point! Software side laptop wins handsdown.

But I do worry it will be less confortable on the hardware side. Far less portable. Can't decide
>>
>>4029913
i really dont know about the apple obsolence, for example i have the samsung galxy note 10.1 2014, so it's been 5 years, and works like always.
The problems that you can have with obsolence are:
-the battery dies with years: could be, but my galaxy note is from 2014, in quality i think was a medium-high range, but now i have to guess that the ipad is better in those terms, so probably could easy last more than 5 years in battery.
-apps: in android the shit is not really important, if you have a stable version of an app, dont matter if the system just go on and you cant have the last version, i have the storage version of sketchbook the the tablet and works with no problems, you could have problems with send the files to other device, but if the ipad use some cable is no problem.
-Screen: mine used a screen from 2014, so with a screen protector thats not a problem and the screen will never get scratches.
Aaand nothing more i guess.
So that shit is not really that true. Unless i don't know.. apple dont let you to have an old version of their OS in a Ipad, and put you a countdown or something like that (that could be the stupid shit anyway)

So its depends of the ipad version that you can get.

>Procreate will stop updating for me and I will be locked out of the appstore.
if the app is not update anymore for your version of os, you can still use it, unless apple is shit, i dont think they block all the tablet if gets outdated.

But if you have a intous already, is probably more productive have the notebook, it will be like use a pc station anyway,

>>4029946
and also i forgot to mention that could probably extend some years more the life of the notebook, if you buy another battery (in case the first ones die for some reason, with the cables that happens sometimes and you can even buy a cheap "alternative" cable, even for the battery). And you can replace the storage with an new SDD with more storage, that could revive your notebook in his last days.
>>
>>4029946
>>4029954

So it all depends on wheter I just want to draw or just use it for more. Thank you anon

He elaborates on it further during the anatomy lectures. Basically, a muscle being relaxed/stretched will lend itself to an elongated S curve, while an active muscle will have a C curve. This principle extends to more general "masses" like the neck and waist. When one side squeezes tight, the stuff being squeezed needs to go somewhere and it will either go inward or outward (or a combination of both).

It's not always super notable in models unless they have some love handles going on.

Sup /ic/, I've tried a lot of the discord channels on this board. And not to be surprised, 90% of them are nothing but teenage dramafests and weird circlejerks.

So I've decided to make my own. The goals for this discord are
>Keeping people motivated drawing by providing a community of other artists to draw with and give valid critiques
>Having a place where you can have fun drawing for the sake of drawing when burn out starts to set in

No real skill or style direction and its open to anyone who just wants a place to draw with other people.

My only rules.
1. keep your drama out, we're all adults, act like it.
2. no trannies
3. keep /pol/ to yourself.
4. just fucking draw.

If any of you are interested here's the link

Hi anons, I've just finished downloading Proko's anatomy course from the goddamn Baidu's sharing site. The retard on Baidu zipped every single file, the extraction process took even more time than the downloading itself. 63GB, please seed, thanks anons.

Then get a mannequin and dress it up with your clothes. You have to find a way to draw from life. This is because you get a hands on understanding of why clothing folds a certain way in X position. Every guide in the world will tell you the same thing.

>Also, I don't own any japanese schoolgirl outfits in my size
If they're made in the same fabric as clothing you have then it's the same thing.
