How do I get good at drawing? I'm left handed, have perpetually shaky hands, ADHD, autism and a learning disability. Almost 24.

I've wanted to get good at art since I was a teen but I've lacked the motivations, resources and teachings to get started.

I don't know

>good pressure curve to start out with

>I've wanted to get good at art since I was a teen but I've lacked the motivations, resources and teachings to get started.
This is me. You're basically in the same boat as me except I don't have self diagnosed brain problems. Stop overthinking everything and draw. Questions you can find answers to will present themself as you draw, but broad generalist questions like what you're saying don't help anyone. The only thing holding me (and probably you honestly) back is a videogame addiction, and there's no way to fix that besides discipline.
Also, copy things instead of trying to immediately jump into construction. It's way easier exercise for a beginner and it's what most of these "draw as a kid" fucks did anyway.
I don't have a video game addiction. I barely even play them anymore.

While this is true, a lot of poses just don’t read very well. I will outright choose not to draw odd angles or awkward artificial poses because they just won’t look good.

why are japanese journalists so shit? they seem to be even scummier than the rest of journalists
The Japanese are pretty shrewd. Their businesses get caught up in shady shit and practice unreasonable policies all the time. Nintendo is a good current example of how far they'll go to protect their own interests but you can see it in youtube video copyright strikes, taking down foreign anime/manga hosting and such too. Their police are absolutely ruthless, same with their judicial system. Those, and the western press, are inherently tied to their news industry. The average employee is expected to follow orders no matter how unreasonable. They maintain their politeness and appear to be humble, but go beyond the individual and they struggle to apologize for wrongdoing and have a superiority complex. Most of all when they're dealing with any entities that aren't themselves japanese. I fear what they would be if they weren't american lapdogs on a leash. And I say this as someone who likes their cultural contributions to the world very much.

I saw one anon saying "that anime is why too old, I don't watch old ass shit" on a season anime thread, the fun thing is that he was replying to show that aired in 2005 or so, that's considered "TOO old" for nu-anime fags?
It's a different world over there now. Anime is practically a completely different animal at this point and the viewers evolved with it, foreign or domestic.
Generally the japanese dont like old things. Old houses, old styles, old shows. Makes sense that weebs obsessed with japan will share that mentality. Even kawaii culture is falling out of favor. It's being replaced with this weird forced otaku flavor of cute. Young girls seem more interested in cool sleek Kpop type style than hearts, fluffy looking pets and emoticons with sparkles. They even have their own version of ironic humor where shit is drawn extremely poorly and ugly on purpose which they find quite funny. Pop Team Epic really shined a spotlight on that. It's just a young people's country that tailors to young crowds with the latest new hotness. And it is going to be really fucking fun to see how that's going to work out with their population collapse.
Japanese mainstream media is under government control. They have more power than even the police. Police need permission to invade your house, NHK guys can invade your house freely without permit to check if you have TV(and illegal materials) or not.

Shouldn't you be showing your snatch to some kids at a story time reading or something faggot?
There is no objective fact of the universe that says that "decomposition of light" is an inherently bad thing. This is your own subjective interpretation. You see the word "decomposition" and your brain interprets that as negative. Where is the universal fact that "decomposition" is always bad? Is it written in the constellations of the stars?
In fact, decomposition is often good. A tree falls in the forest and it's decomposed by fungus, bacteria, and invertebrates. The decomposition of the tree supports many organisms. Then, the nutrients that were in the tree become available for new living plants to use. It's an important process. You are made up of decomposed things, and you wouldn't exist if decomposition didn't happen.

Also, you use the word "deconstruction" earlier. The word sounds similar to "destruction" so you probably are judging it as negative based on this alone. But if you actually looked into it you'd know that deconstruction just means literary analysis.

I think your judgement is very clouded by bias right now. It's not allowing you to see other possibilities, and in fact it's skewing your own perception to be further from reality. This will be my last reply to you, but I hope you have a nice weekend anon.
>raping children is negative from any point of view
This feels a bit optimistic. Any REASONABLE point of view maybe.
WTF??? to decompose is to mess up to separate something that is already composed, don't give me your puns for mass idiots, asshole

My favorite part about these threads is that the weeb side always jumps to:

"W-welll, but western comics don't have cute women!"

Are these people mentally stunted?

The culture war is literally the people in control of the entertainment industry wanting to transform comics/videogames/animation into socialist propaganda, or claiming everything exists to simp for socialism
That's why western stuff has been failing lately, because they let a bunch of politics addicts in and now those idiots are in control.

Unironically, western media has utterly collapsed. People around the world are more disinterested than ever in modern American entertainment due to various reasons. Right now it seems people are shifting towards anime, manga, Kpop, K-drama, foreign novels and etc etc.

At this point America has utterly sabotaged their soft power and Asia is rising fast as where the only good entertainment comes from.

Just like your mental dysphoria, you cherry pick what you like about certain things and refuse to discuss them and what you don't like, you broadcast on your soapbox assuming all Western work is bad when in reality, unlike yours, it isn't.
Like anon mentioned above, we're living in a clown world run by degenerates who have absolutely no clue what good taste, looks like. But thankfully, there are still great artists out there proving that no matter how many companies and organizations bend the knee, they, never will.
And just like pic related, you will never be a woman. Only a mentally dysphoric individual championing a cause screeching from the rooftops, but just like Target and Bud Light, you'll drive anime and manga straight into the ground without you even knowing it.
Then, and only then, will we be able to kick your kind out of our hobbies once and for all.
You're not wanted, you're not welcome. Leave.

ok, here's the remake after looking at reference.

This is a long shot, but does anyone have a copy of the MaxPack Gouache V2 Brush Manual?

For some reason, this file has been absent from most of its uploads. Meanwhile Watercolor and Retro have always their manuals available?

Is there an Anon out there willing to make my day today? Also feel free to turn this into an impromptu Procreate Brush thread.
Yeah, none of the downloads include the manual, so whoever originally shared it didn't include it. We're going to need someone who actually bought the pack to share the manual.

Do you think it's a good idea?
For some context, I've been drawing ever since I discovered /ic/ two years ago, my progress has been so so, marginal (i can at least do a readable figure and construct most objects) due to study brain (only study, not finished pieces. I started working on comics a few months ago, i can make them more or less passable with heavy reference use using the instructions in Pic related book.

Now, i met an old acquaintance, who studies Illustration in my university (I'm a cs fag) obviously told her i now started practicing etc... And she invited me to join her drawing club, to share critique and all that

I accepted and, since I knew her kind of people were anime fans, i told her i was a bit busy and would join them in a future meeting.

I used this time to take one of the short stories I wrote (/lit/fag) and downloaded the OPM (always heard it has good art) and, with heavy reference use i managed to draw a so-so short story

And, even though it wasn't that good, when i showed it on the club the other day, i received quite a bit of praise, and well, I'm thinking of actually continuing making them (I'm still studying OPM) because, well, I'm starved for attention alright, after event i met three new people that actually talk to me

Yeah I know that sounds pathetic but I've been lonely for a long time he.

Would it be dishonest to keep making them even if I don't enjoy the medium? (Not in a disrespectful way, just not really interested)

Wait, you already liked anime and you draw?
Where's the conflict here, exactly?
I don't think the issue is you making manga when you don't/won't like manga, the issue is making something because you want to please others.

Finding people is hard anyway, i don't think it would be possible

Well yeah, i like the stories, but that doesn't mean I want to copy the style ahaha, i mean i like watching it but I'm still not sure about trying to Excell in a style that the average jap will always do better :p
NTA but I think the only current releases I keep up with are DanDaDan and Dungeon Meshi. Every once in a while I'll archive binge Sleepy Princess In Demon Castle. Other than that, I tend to read older releases.
The best way to keep track of releases is probably to use a mobile app like Tachiyomi, especially if you have a tablet, since it can notify you when new chapters drop.
I don't know about other apps, but you *can* use Tachiyomi to read manga from official servers that you pay a subscription for, not just for piracy.
A lot of manga I like took forever and a long time just to get 1 chapter translated. This went on for years and till this day I think 1 of my fav series still does not have all the chapters done even though it’s finished. It’s 1 of the things why I don’t bother. But then I always read comments from people saying stuff like “they censored/cut out this scene” then I flip through the manga for that anime and they for sure cut out and censor a lot of ecchi stuff it’s unreal.

I dunno, I’ll look more into finding out how I can track stuff better without it being too much of a chore.
Oh, I’ll look into Tachiyomi. Thanks.

Ok, Owl Anon, I'm almost there. I'm bumping as a signal. You were right. Even when you explained all, to me is like reading chinese, lol. I should watch the show. I left out the part where the owl magic creature (?) rises the moon guy (?), to try and reach Lucy, and someone tickles the owl's body (?)..lol, I don't even know what's that all about. BUT, all the dialogue is in. I'm doing the last pic when the guy grabs the staff and jumps down. And Lucy does something (?) and follows him. Don't worry I got it. Just few hours more. It's something very simple.
>I'm doing the last pic when the guy grabs the staff and jumps down. And Lucy does something (?) and follows him

Also, if it's too far into the production, don't worry about it, but the staffs I was going for was to have the upside down owl have their staff part be upside down too with a normal H. The L on the right also was just normal unlike the original. And I didn't label it, I should have made it more clear, but the latter owl was more metallic with a few symbols of the moon stars and sun on it. The shape is important becaue the logo is referencing about the Palisman staffs; in the original the L's shaped wonky like that because at the end of the story the MC got a snake-like Palisman so that S was (supposedly) a hint of where that's going, so I was hinting that Luz gets an important tech staff that, features gone looks like the Owl shape on the original, but UHOH WHAT IF ITS NOT WHAT IF ITS SOMETHING ELSE OOOOOH FUNNY SWAP OOOOH.

I did a slapdash edit in krita. I don't really like the color presentation on the H's right letter, but I figured getting the idea across was more important than fixing that. Again, if this is too much of a hassle don't worry about it, it's an 11th hour change.

>I left out the part where the owl magic creature (?) rises the moon guy

Sorry, the idea was the Owl House has a house demon called Hooty, he's that owl tube thing, and he can stretch to an indeterminate distance, basically if it's funny he CAN reach it if it's funnier that he can't he CAN'T, chuck jones laws of physics. Meanwhile, the shadow guy can only project out a form that is within light proximity of a special moon plate. And the idea is this boy and the MC have run so far across the city and Hooty's stretched so hard around buildings, holding the mirror, that he's all bound taught around stuf. Then someone tickles him, causing muscle spasms that breaks his grip, zipping him back up like a measuring tape. It was some silly physical comedy to balance out the dry exposition. It's not super necessary though, don't worry about it.
>I don't really like the color presentation on the bigger H's right pillar
Is what I meant.
I prefer writing (not that I have any talent for that, either).
Also, I work more than 50 hrs/week and have a 4chan addiction.
