They're getting desperate. They'll probably cave and add full blown AI soon
Why would they need to cave? Don't they make the bulk of their money from studios?

Why can't you faggots do your own research? They are doing fine as long as paypigs do their job.
It keeps getting bloated like Photoshop
There's absolutely no reason to upgrade from version 1, just like Photoshop CS6 remains the best version.
exactly, all the "improvements" they make is just an excuse to higher ups to keep developers in employment
So where is the cracked version

The blonde girl's name is Lucy, and I created her a really long time ago (like 7 years ago). She was based on a lady in a gun magazine called "M-11 Tiny Dynamite". Lucy is the daughter of a crime lord, and she never received attention from her father. She would eventually starve for attention, to the point of hurting and soon killing people for it. Eventually, she would just do it because she enjoys it. As she gets older, she would take over her father's crime syndicate, and change the group's overall mindset to "the strong will kill the weak" or somthing, but in reality, she's doing it so people will keep giving her attention for killing people.

As for the other guy, he's a reflection of all the worst parts and the most self-destructive version of me. I created him when I was very depressed and suicidal, and a friend recommended venting my frustration through writing a story. My friend went through the same things I did, and he said it helped him a lot, which it did for me too. The guy is depressed, and he lives a dangerous life in a gunrunning gang because it makes him feel something, makes him feel alive. In his head, he thinks he's invincible, but he snaps back into reality when he sees the friends he made in the gang die. He comes to the realization that he's as vulnerable as everyone else and that he'll end up like them eventually. He would soon mentaly snap and develops a death wish, kind of going back to square one with his depression. He's either going get out of all of this alive or go out guns blazing. For his name, I honestly never gave him or have the though of giving him one, and I dont plan on it either, maybe ill give a nick name but thats it. also im not as drepressed anymore, I'm still am but not as bad as I written them.

At what point do you stop saying "I can't draw" when other people ask about it?
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
The japanese have artbooks that make it easy to draw while we Westerners are stuck with grotesque bodies
I will consider myself an artist when I reach the same skill level as both the artists who encouraged me to start drawing and those who tried everything to stop me.

As long as I have not archieved that, I will still say I can't draw.
No need to tell them anything, draw in public. Most people will be impressed with anything beyond stick figures.
I don't like telling people I know that I draw, every time I post something to facebook I get people wanting me to draw something for them and I have to waste my time telling them no in a diplomatic way. I also just can't draw very well in general and don't really consider myself an artist. Like what is it about my figure studies that's making people think I can make a vector based logo for their small business.
If only we had master teachers like Sensei Loomis or Senei Hamm.

>Is the internet a benefit or distraction your personal art journey?
If we're talking about my art journey specifically then no, it's mostly been beneficial in that I'm able to learn what I need to improve and am able to post here or anywhere else to get feedback. It's never really been an issue for me to draw 3-4 hours in one sitting, sometimes forgetting to eat breakfast, but that's just because I enjoy the drawing process so much. Now if we're talking about the Internet being a distraction in general, then yes. I have this problem where I'll relax to watch a YouTube video and think to myself: "Okay, I'm just going to watch one video," but then that turns into one or two hours of binging videos on topics I don't even care about. This same problem happens whenever I'm on Pinterest or Flickr looking at images I enjoy for reference or as inspiration, which can be distracting for long periods of time. I have a shelf full of books I haven't read and I'm trying to pass my exams to get an entry level IT job. I noticed this becoming a problem when I realized that I can't enjoy silence anymore (I'm almost always listening to a podcast or music) and when reading the Bible I'll start to fall asleep after 15 minutes. I recently installed a blocker on my browser that limits the time I'm on here for about an hour. I'm also trying to stay away from YouTube and I'm going to give myself at least 15 minutes to be in silence either outside or in silence with my thoughts in my house. I just hope this problem isn't permanent and that it is fixable.
Instead of having to submit my work to some unknown entities to get exposure, I can just get a domain name and be my own master of my content.
there are tools to get rid of the internet invented by smart people that you can buy right now

Hello. I'm trying to create a macrostyle [Roots: Groenism, Schulzism, Primitive Tezukism], but I'm having difficulty increasing visual entropy in a non-arbitrary way.

From a soft perspective: any tips for increasing entropy? Maybe through shadows/gradients?
32 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
>what about things like rubber hose, Hanna Barbara

Exactly, those are beautiful macrostyle seeds, but due to the lack of general direction - direction endorsed by the keiretsu in Japan - they have remained half-developed without achieving their maximum potential. His balance and 'vibration' between simple and complex forms was not trivial, but neither was it exceptional. It's as if Tezukism had stopped reproducing in the 70s considering its peak to be Cutey Honey or Speed Racer.

I consider Termite'terrace'ism as the Western macrostyle that achieved the greatest development before being forgotten. Recent individual initiatives have tried to revive it (John K, VivziePop), but due to lack of balance they are empty efforts. A macrostyle only has scalability if it is balanced.

>even "anime" is a broadstroke term

Anime' is a misleading term, that's why I prefer to use 'tezukism' to refer to visual patterns based on the idiosyncrasies of Osamu Tezuka (which is also a 'fork' of rubber'hose'ism) and 'japanarts' (japanimation, japancomics ...) to refer generally to all creative output of Japanese origin regardless of its patterns. With these terms we can say that Evangelion and Anpanman are japanimation but not necessarily both are strong tezukism.

Personally, I am only interested in tezukism because it is the macrostyle with the greatest influence on the other trivial macrostyles of Japan.
>I prefer to use 'tezukism' to refer to visual patterns based on the idiosyncrasies of Osamu Tezuka
you is a dumb faggit

Tezuka's artystyle was just as varied as any other - and others don't even even stick to it
check out this one pic here - his characters are so different, some would assume 3 different people drew them
Danke. Draw her too make this esoteric thread at least worth something
The main patterns of Tezukism are present in these characters: rubberhose mixed with naturalism (realistic anatomy), although in different proportions. For this reason it can be said that they are part of the same macrostyle. Furthermore, a macrostyle is not only distinctive visual patterns, it is also internal rules that anticipate a certain kind of creative output.

The world is varied, you cannot expect everyone to faithfully comply with the same physical traits. That only happens in unbalanced styles like Garfield or the Fairly OddParents who 'vibrate' in their own autistic symbolic universe, ignoring reality.

One of the things I criticize about modern Tezukism is that it has forgotten that flexibility of primitive Tezukism.
>some would assume 3 different people drew them
some retards would. Those are all stock tezuka designs. Literally not!blackjack, not!astroboy, and not!disney-animal
If you wanted to post something by Tezuka that at least looled kimda different, you should have posted something from MW

I need feedback on this character...
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
tell me more about her.
The color scheme and composition are good, but you're relying too much on gimmicks like chromatic abberation and blur. It almost feels as if you want to hide your drawing under these effects. The colors you chose for the cel shading are rather dull, especially on her skin. If you look at real skin, it's translucent. Having a reddish shift from the base color is something that works quite well with skin under normal lighting in my opinion. Your linework is clean, but there are a lot of unecessary lines that don't really add to the design, such as those in the hair or the nonsensical folds. I think all in all you're off to a good start. It'd definitely help to look into the basics of figure drawing and color theory. There should be enough resources on this board to provide you with sufficient learning material
Wow genuine critique

1. Manmade objects, vehicles, tool, weapons etc. (of any kind and any historical era, as long as they fall in the ballpark of "technology") and fictional derivatives of such
2. Objects,vehicles, creatures etc. that aesthetically fall into the visual space of mecha/robot/artificial/cybernetics etc. regardless of level of realism.
Helpful to mention the level of realism, if any, you are taking into account in the art.

Ron Tiner's "Drawing without a Model" would be one, no? He also wrote another called "Drawing from your imagination". Also the guy who did Keys to Drawing, Bert Dodson, also has a book dedicated entirely to doing imaginative drawing called "Keys to Drawing with Imagination".
So that's three just off the top of my head.

Literally just apply what you learned from those with your own ideas, I'm sure even (you) can come up with some shit and try to do it from memory.
Have you gone through it though?
You can't just rate it based on the cover alone
I decided to flip through it again to remind myself of how good it is. If you have no taste, fine, Tiner can be my little secret.

Hi /ic/
Can you criticize my silent comic
I still an amateur and developing my skills, practicing every day despite my busy university scheduleand your advices and criticism is really important for me because it's direct and real (not sugar coated like the one's I got from my peers)
Thank you
53 replies and 16 images omitted. Click here to view.
Don't listen to advices here
Most of them are misleading just to destroy your potential
Run away
I agree with this anon. The panel with the sprouts growing inside the grenades was a good touch and I like how you portrayed the main character's loneliness and trauma, but it's hard to tell what panels I should read first. I think it would be better to draw LESS in this case. Focus on larger panels for scale and atmosphere and fewer gray tones as well. Making the contrast between foreground and background stronger would help the readability a lot. Akira has good examples of this. The art is intricate but it's quite legible.
Your work is acceptable
But you're far away from publishing
You need even more work and dedication
I see potential but you're way far from the level of published comic artist I see them around

So I'd like to experiment with some of these watercolors, but i don't particularly love any of the 3 sets of twelve available, nor do I want to buy all of them when they're new to me. I guess my question is, would getting just the primary colors be a decent start? Anyone with experience with these?
>So I'd like to experiment with some of these watercolors,
Why oh why? They're dye-based, so the real use cases are narrow. Just build up your skills with regular watercolors, and don't lose time, money and space with useless material.

t. talking from experience
Just use markers, those are liquid watercolors but they're dyes and the lightfastness isn't great.
Just do it and post your work. Painting is about painting, not discussing pigments
I like to color my ink drawings with ink dyes, I use the Pentel Aqua brushes, the lightfastness is alright, just keep out of direct sunlight, it's ok, I have drawings that were colored like that are 20 years old.
I've worked with them. They're a bitch to work with. Mixing colors doesn't work because it seems like mixing oil and water together. You can't rewet them to reactivate them.
Really the only reason to pick them up is if you're looking to experiment with how old Marvel and DC comics used to be colored before digital.
