How did you find your personal style? Looking for constructive criticism and pointers
Use different line weights.

>guilt began to rid me

It's too early for me to talk of this since i am still in this journey. but this is the little i can share for now.

What are your opinions on Nick Blinko?
Please I just need to make $600 a month
>more lines = better
It looks cool from a distance, but the composition is ass. I guess it's hard to keep composition in mind when doodling, but some other artists manage to do it well.

There's this technique were a digital artist will first draw in thick lines to plan out the pose/composition before making a new layer to do the art in thinner line art. Anyone know what this is called? It's not done very often as most artists I have watched plan their art and do their line art with the same line thickness, the only difference is degree of messiness.
Pic unrelated
I don't think it has a name, it's just a thing we do
Rough sketch
you can do the same in trad with light copic marker then go over it with thin ink pen iv seen artists use it to design silhouettes. dont think it has a name its just one of the ways artist use in their process.
Uh, you don't get to make gains.

Ngmi. 'D'OH! If I make head from basic shapes me no make proportion changes.'
How-to books are irrelevant. Books on art theory and philosophy are worth reading. As is the great literature/films of the world and interacting with people around you.
artist is an identity that you use to rationalize your choices
this post is also based on ego btw
The most important fundie is perspo to make interesting drawings and appeal is way more important than technicality, at least if you actually want to make money with art.

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.

It's not a "lesser" photoshop, it's just a different program built to make a fundamentally different kind of art (vector). Both vector and raster workflows have their own benefits and drawbacks. If you want to make comics though, I'd advise working in something other than Illustrator. It's not going to do the kinds of things you want to do in the ways you'd ideally want to do them.

90% of my lines are done with the default g-pen with tweaks, pic related.
The thick, brush-like lines (the hair in the 2nd panel) are this brush https://assets.clip-studio.com/en-us/detail?id=1867973 but tweaked to be monochrome and less aggressively shaped. I grabbed it while it was free and was surprised by how much I liked it, dunno if I'd pay for it though.
thank god I downloaded that shit before the price tag.

Drawing this scene and i have this security guard getting shot by his partner in the head (no spoiling further).
My big issue for why i make this thread is that i don't know if the character shot in the head is supposed to drop straight like a log or like a rag doll with limbs all over the place in whatever gesture.
Any of the anons that watch gore stuff can help me out? How does someone hit by a headshot drop? Do they drop straight like a log with limbs by their body or are limbs spread like whatever?
I want to get this scene done , i got more pages to do for today.
gorefag here, they drop like a log
>gorefag here, they drop like a log
All of them?
No arms sticking out or legs bent?

I already say this in a thread before but it's prove cooms don't care about "how", it's the end result. It's always been this honestly, it's only artists self destructing themselves into thinking you have to do it the "honorable" way otherwise you're an hack

Why do you fear others opinions? Fuck them, they are pointless. Draw/"bash"/trace/reference whatever you like and get results.

Because popular people are not allowed to be better at art than us without cheating! We must ignore any and all dissenting facts and evidence and maintain the status quo that /ic/ is always right, that the average crab is as good as one can get in art and that being good at art without cheating is not possible. And thus we can maintain some semblance of the comfortable collective self confidence that this place provides u by telling us that we are in right if not factually then at least morally.
Give it a fucking rest Artnip.

dm a person you trust instead of an anonymous board so you can have a real conversation where ya'll define what your problems are and find help for you and your unique circumstances around the maintenance of discipline and willpower
I wanted to ask a leading question but I'll be straight with you you can't finish a picture all you can do is decide to stop working on something, hopefully because you're satisfied with what you've accomplished.

what gives you the idea that your pictures are something that you can ruin

Yes, it's not that good but it's highly specific to my fetish so it's doable.
>while rendering I'll drench most characters in cum and save that version for myself

How noble.
One of the reasons I started drawing was because I loved the female form and was a massive commer. Now after staring at hundreds of naked women and drawing then all day, I don't even get erect anymore I bless im in the mood and want to
Im not longer a slave to the coom. Now I am in control of when I get a boner and when I coom.
I actually hope i get to that point
Great job anon, I'm happy for you

Having to choose a career path by the time you're 17 is bullshit. I tried plenty of shit ever since I was little, everything from swimming to music to math to visual art and left little pieces of myself in all of those, some heftier than others. My retard teen mentality made me believe some bullshit along the lines of "huh, physics can describe almost everything and I like plenty of shit in that everyhting so maybe physics is the way to go" and here I am, stuck mid way in 5th semester with little joy after leaving all those other pieces of me in the backburner.
I want to get back in the game and give it my all, anons. I don't wanna live a shitty office life pacing back and forth thinking about stuff that doesn't genuinely MEAN something to me. Can I make it so that I'm able to pick up where I left off in art and give it my all without having to give up my interest in my major if I want to get better and better until I feel a sense of "fullness" or will I have to choose one over the other?
No one asked
No one cares
What you're experiencing with your major is something that almost everyone I know experiences with their major. The amount of work and studying needed to do well in class and having to communicate with your partners on a group project can lead to school being overwhelming.

You can get back into drawing. If it is something you genuinely like to do then I don't see why you shouldn't learn art on the side while doing these classes. If you want more structured learning, I'm pretty sure there's a lot of online resources available. There's even a resources thread that has a bunch of nifty books that anons recommend. If you can't do it this semester if you have a lot of projects to work on then just do it the next. If not during the school year, you could do it after you graduate while looking for work/working in your field of expertise.
As someone who went to both university and art school, I was way happier at art school. It wasn't even close. It depends on your personality, if you're high in openness then you're going to feel like you're dying inside if you're not expressing yourself creatively all the time, constantly exposing yourself to beautiful works of art, music etc. In that respect uni was pretty soulless. It also wasn't an efficient way for me to learn -- I like to do things my own way, following someone else's template just makes me sad.

At art school I did kinda miss the more technical side of things (and the average IQ was a bit lower) but overall it was a much more fulfilling environment, I just got along way better with the people there. Fwiw I didn't actually study art, I worked as a programmer at a startup that was based inside the art school but I spent all day and all my free time there and it was the best year of my life and I really want to go back (but I suck at art, which is why I'm on this board).
(((Art school))) is a hoax.
I do not dismiss the skill of some art teachers, they just not as good as giving advice or even worse, drive you away from your original motivation and you end up with soulless, half ass paintings.
Figure out what you love and determined your life to research and make art about it. Tezuka Osamu maybe not the best artist but he dedicated his life to study medical and human anatomy and simplified them for manga. His legacy still affect Japanese manga to this day, (for example the expression are simplified based on real face muscles, that why Japanese manga expression usually on point). Dude never took an art course in his life.
Smell my farts
Yeah, I guess what i'm feeling isn't all that special considering I've seen my clasmates bdcome gradually more jaded over time. You're right about doing this on the side but something tells me I don't just want this to be a hobby, but an integral part of my main life.
Can you give me any tips if I were to pursue this path? I may be able to change the focus of my major if I play my cards right and get into a bunch of art classes, even if I have to pay for them myself.
I'm not talking about art school specifically but this does sounds interesting. What would make the difference regarding the time I spend practicing?

The exercises are kicking my ass. I didn't realize how little I know until now.
what's the difference between the versions?
Chlorophyll was trendy in the 1950s, people thought it helped cleanliness and hygiene. You'd take chlorophyll pills to reduce body odor and from there the idea was that you could integrate it into fabrics to make them more hygenic. Some people still swear by chlorophyll tablets but it would not work for fabrics as advertised.
