can anyone tell me how he did the cast shadow on the neck? It appears that the rendering on the neck is persevered through some blending mode or something, but it looks like he's erasing? yet it's not a full erase and u can see some of the rendering is preserved subtly

Then you need black for space, or (as I said,) if you want things to look muddy. And sometimes you do... but (generally) not so much if you're working with lighter skin tones, which is what I was referring to specifically. Even darker tones tend to look better when skewed blue or purple.
>>
>>6076869
Vilppu does that type of shading as well. It's pretty common for educational stuff where a 45 degree direct light source would draw attention away from the point of the drawing.
>>
>>6076874
You can definitely use the color black for paintings. If they are shadows or not is irrelevant

How does one design shadows like Sean Murphy, JP Leon and Matteo Scalera in Comics?

Comic book lighting is just the step 1 of painting that every course teaches you.
You separate the light and shadow but instead of going any further you just make the shadow black and the light white.
Then you can play with mid values by using some hatching along the edges of the shadow or introducing texture into the shadows.
But the core of it is just separating the shadow and light and ignoring everything else.
Look up the term "Notan",a japanese concept for separating light in black and white graphic elements. Search for notan on artstation to see examples of 2 value studies. Search for "notan comic" to see people dissect comics into their compositional values.

Look at artists like Mike Mignola or Frank Miller for more extreme examples of notan composition in comics.

Framed Ink 1 & 2 are two good resources to educate yourself with.

If you want to get really deep you can look into german expressionism in film and how they influenced film noir lighting. Do 2 value studies of black and white films. Watch "Visions of Light " 1992 documentary on cinematography for a list of good films to study for their lighting and composition.

learn how casting shadows works. scott robertsons 'how to render' or marcos mateu 'framed ink' explain the concept. theres probably a million youtube videos.

Sorry, new here, didnt knew much. Ill try to ask in a preexisting thread next time ...

>>6076447
I wanted to ask: while drawing a panel, things like POV, character poses and placements - I can handle (like in the given photo -1 point perspective; foreground, mid gr. back gr.; the sitting pose and the drapery - that much i can create with imagination). But i cant figure out how to put an interesting lighting to the scene and how to design the resulting shadows in a cool way - mixing notan and chiaroscuro - especially in scenes created from imaginaion?

though suggestions given by anon in >>6076467 are really helpful and ill try to practice more in that way ...

Why You Should Copy Anime:
https://i.imgur.com/zNDsyF0.jpg (embed)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbKqIJcIUCw

**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.

The US had actual good art schools that pumped out illustrators back then, particularly in new york. it didn't collapse until after ww2.

Everyone in the States learned from Bridgman (And the people following Bridgman: Nicolaides, Vanderpoel, Loomis, Hogarth, Vilppu, Arthur Guptill)

Before Bridgman people had to go to France to study art.

>I see that from half the people and the absolute opposite from the other half whenever it's brought up

because a ton of people stand to benefit from making a great,free teaching resource seem unreliable. why would anyone want to sign up for proko courses or what-have-you courses if they could get lessons for free from loomis books, or some hampton books or some 16 dollar gurney book? of course they're going to trash talk and convince you that drawing boxes for 2 years straight is better. even jap artists shit their pants when they get their hands on loomis books translated into japanese.

Aw man... I wanna say I've been using drawpile on and off since maybe 2015? 2016? I only started using Drawpile as my main program around 2019-2020-ish I think
Fond memories... My memory isn't the best but I'm sure I've had plenty. I've did plenty of drawn roleplays in random servers back in the day! But it always bums me out doing those in Drawpile because they rarely ever save each turn they just keep redrawing/drawing for the next scenes :') my poor memory weeps....
So I slowly started doing those less, but drawing my avatars onto pre-existing backgrounds with multiple different poses was a great exercise! If I had to do it all over again, I'd still participate in em
I suppose one time stood out to me, I was a stowaway in a large ship, but we got attacked by some wizard? The memories a bit fuzzy, but I remember having a blast with the exchange... Not really sure how it ended, but the ship definitely took a lotta damage! Think I might've thrown someone at the wizard..... Lots of dodging and comedic bits strewn about, everyone was having a great time. I've hung out plenty with closer friends too and pulled some shenanigans. Used to bring pre-rendered backgrounds in for everyone to do little collaborate group pics with, those were lots of fun too

I've had plenty of fun times in Drawpile! It's just a shame my memory isn't the best so I can't share a bunch of the tales, but I know if had plenty of fun joining random servers and hanging out
Sometimes public drawpile servers can be a handful, but as long as you're not lookin to make trouble, they're actually pretty chill most of the time (or a little too chill if everyone is roleplaying and doing their own things). Uhhhh I met the animator GingerPale once, he's a p chill dude! It was a fun night. Someone drew a little boxing ring and we did random little quick fights... It was a little clunky, but still pretty fun! I definitely wouldn't be where I am if I had never used Drawpile

ITT: Draw this in your own style, with a twist.

I'll post a series of human reference pictures. Pick one, or multiple, whichever interests you most, and draw it in your personal style, or at least try to replicate the image in a way that suits you best. The rule is that you have to modify the narrative of the image, whilst maintaining the subject.

You can turn the subject into a prince, a princess, a goblin, an orc, a cyborg, an angel, a demon. You can change the palette, the expression, the setting, the mood etc. Do whatever you like. Show off your creativity.
