I love this "paint but looks unfinished on purpose" style but I can never figure out how to achieve it
>after that it's just detailing

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

>looks so muddy

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.
Yeah I know, just feels funny to hear this and then look at this kind of page.
Man I can't stand this guys faces. Way too much verticality in the eyes and the nose looks odd.
I fuck with you dawg this is cool as shit. I admire your confidence to pursue this even as a beginner. I'll be keeping up with this.

Too much competition, the AI can already replicate beg tier stuff, you need YEARS to barely understand fundamentals.
You need a LOT of years to develop an unique style.
People with decades of experience are barely able to make money with their art.

>There's literally no point in art anymore.
The point of art is to express yourself like you want, even if the result is not satisfactory. Critical thinking has diminished considerably over the years and look what has brought us. Because there's machines that can do it doesn't mean you have to abandon your creativity, it's part of your humanity.
Drawing in your teens is the prerequisite (unless you are very talented). That doesn't mean if you fulfil that prerequesite you are gonna make it, it's just the entry point.

hello BICH
This looks awesome. Love the colors
Dunno if you're still here but:
I'd have some goals in mind for your style - do you have artists or examples of what you like in mind? It'd be good to dissect them to find out which parts in particular you like and then try to incorporate them because there are a looot of different toony styles with different levels of complexity. They tend to use simplified, readable, and / or flowing shapes though. Without changing your current style, you could improve your drawings by inking the lines - it'll make them smoother and allow for a greater range of tones; you could use highlights by greying in your characters. A little cell shading might also go a long way in terms of adding depth. Distant objects appear less saturated, less detailed, and lighter. There's a lot to improve but I think your drawing is charming and I especially like how you arranged the bottom of the page

I'm unironically too stupid to comprehend Proko's method for drawing simplified pelvis from any angle. How important to know this for drawing a figure from imagination?
25 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
I just imagine the crotch/vagina and construct from there. It's easier for me to go for something visible and easily feelable than bones deeper in the body.
His simplified pelvis is overly complex compared to other types but don’t fuck with anatomy until you understand perspective and gestures
The problem with teachers like Proko is that they teach techniques and methods they don't have any first hand experience with using in their own work, and as such have a very superficial, second-hand interpretation of it at best. Proko is like one of those self-help authors that collect a potpourri of ideas from other sources and repackages it as his own stuff.
what the hell am I even looking at? I can't even comprehend what this shape is, is ita toilet?

I'm in the green zone right now and it sucks. I find the cycle takes about two weeks between the peaks and troughs.
Turn those negative feeling's into something positive, get inspired by other people's work or get motived into getting better. Art is not a competition my man
you need to let other art inspire you, to push you to surpass them one day. you need friendly rivalry. i cant imagine being a pathetic, jealous dog
Understand that some of those artists probably feel the same way about their art and other artists, and accept that this is will always be a thing.
>3d is just as annoying to learn for me which is why I gave up for now because I cant deal with 2 cruel hobbies at once
Weird, I found 3D to be a walk in the park in comparison. I focused on it for a couple of months and had easy shit after easy shit with great results. I kinda lost interest because I had no big project I really wanted 3D for but if I ever need it I'd gladly work at it again.
On the other hand with 2D art I have pain after pain with a cool experience every now and then.

Be careful to observe and understand the shape of an eye and dont fall into the trap of just drawing symbols that resemble eyes. This can apply to any observable object.

How much time a day should I send practicing drawings or how many pages should I do in a day for practice

Currently I'm at at least 2 pages a day and sometimes 4 a day
Keep doing that for 15 years.

Get M dude.
Yeah it works fine. On the odd occasion I lose pen pressure after unplug and replugging the device I just run a .bat file to restart the drivers. This isn't a problem exclusive to intuos 3s though.
That's great, I'm thinking of buying a brand new model on ebay instead of risking a used one that's in already beat up condition, they aren't that far out in price compared to current models that I assume are worse in quality, but I wanted to make sure if they work well with today's software first. Would you happen to know if Intous4 is an improvement over 3? I remember looking at some posts here in the past that claimed Intous4 was part of the age of good long lasting Wacom products, but again I have no idea if that really turned out to be true.
Intuos 4s are when they started making softer pen nibs and courser surfaces. I believe that is also when Wacom switched over to Chinese manufacturing. Other than that I can't speak on the drawing experience between the two. I feel like intuos 3 gives me everything I need, aside from maybe better tilt support if you care about it.

A brand new intuos 3 is worthwhile imo because the sheets do not wear down in normal use (unless you normally press down very hard) and the nibs last many years. Mine is only about to be changed after 15 years. As for my sheets, I only have one scratch from a sharp object (not the nibs), and some unknown splotches from some sort of acid. I don't remember making them so it might've happened when I lent mine out.
Tried tablet for the first time and it came out fairly shit. Is it a practice thing or should I stick to pen and paper?

>He doesn't use references to broaden his visual library and enhance the quality of his drawings with minimum effort
Find addons for your browser for two things:

>Open a picture origin in new tab
You need to be able to, with one hotkey, open a picture you're hovering over into a new tab, and have that opened picture be the original biggest size possible.

>Download all tabbed images
With one selection/hotkey, you should be able to download all tabbed images, and automagically close all tabs that have been downloaded.

With these two tools, addons, whatever, you will be able to browse trough twitter, pinterest, google, whatever, and just collect a bunch of pictures, that you can easily download later with minimal button presses and wasted time.
