How do you get this good at painting? This is not about perspective, or anatomy or anything like that. This is not in any textbook, how do you figure out how to make paintings like this? Are there "fundies" for appeal?

Yes it does, retard.
It looks much better than what you just posted.
the only reason you think thats better is because its by some old dead fuck, it doesnt even look good and from a thumbnail. you cant even make out that its a centaur because the fucking values blend completely into the background

I was handed Photoshop 5.5 back in the late 90s, and I had a blast playing with it to get some semblance of understanding its functionality. Then I made pictures with it,then decided how to incorporate PS into my art. I made a 16 page story to teach myself how to craft comics by assembling processed drawings into panels. I still don't know what half the buttons and commands do,even though I found a manual 30 years later, but I know enough to accomplish what I.

We had a thread discussing this a year ago (June 12th), really fun back and forth.
I'm gonna derail the thread, as I feel like everytime I see a thread like this it's the same stuff.
What makes fake cel's work is really embed compression. You watch something like PBJ Bears, Project Geeker, or 2 Stupid Dogs, shows that don't have a 4K 33mm film stock blu ray rerelease/remaster. It's done on film, but the film grain isn't screaming at you in textures. The cel shadows aren't present because the bitrate compression of the image is coming from a
>film > master tape > tv broadcast > digital transfer
What always intrests me with this stuff are those trying to imitate but have knowledge of compression. Not slavishly trying to go for an aesthetic
And with this, the image compression isn't being used as a shorthand for lack of knowledge of later era 20th century animation. It's being used to compliment what's already there. Which is what makes it work

Give it to me straight. How hard is it to learn Japanese, and to becoming a professional mangaka, serialized in a weekly or monthly magazine?
37 replies and 7 images omitted. Click here to view.
>You will never learn Japanese for starters
learning a language is the easiest step. drawing and writing are much harder skills to learn, imo
Very hard, you can do it but you will probably never work for a big magazine, most non japanese mangaka do straight to tankobon short stuff or very short series, its easier becoming an animator thanks to twitter but the pay is shit (it can get better if you have experience but not so much)
Why would anybody here know how to answer any of this? Are you really this fucking retarded LMAO?

I cant draw like the others so my drawing looks emotional but the origin is actually fun

Looks like 2 people looking at the starts. The one on the left seems to be a fatty (likely op), and the one on the right skinny (probably a child op kidnapped)
Still better than Howie will ever be :)
>looks emotional
nah it looks like you don't know what you're doing. just because you use emotion doesn't mean it will read as emotional.

just keep drawing and finding critiques and one day you will learn to draw better than the others
dont listen to anyone here and what they may say if you are having fun keep going
This advice would be valid -IF- op wasn't fishing for attention. But he is, so fuck him and his pre-pre-/beg/ """"emotional""" scribble bullshit.

>There is one thing not to do, and that is simply to drift along with the daily routine, making no extra effort. You will soon find yourself middle-aged, having done nothing more than routine jobs, and being little farther along than you were years ago. The extra effort is the difference between the great mass of mediocre artists and the comparatively small group of very good ones.
>And in Art, study can never stop. You will find sketches galore in the studio of the good man, with the paint quite fresh. The mediocre artist's sketches are old and dusty.
>I have seen so many middle-aged artists still hoping, whose samples are frayed at the edges, and thumb-marked with time. Sometimes it has been a matter of years since they sat down and actually did something to give their hopes any promise. They are plodding their lives away at something they hate, and doing nothing about it. These are the men who never seem to have had a chance. The truth is, they never seized a chance.

I don't think I'd ever be able to have sex with my OCs they're like children to me. But when I draw other characters I always think about how erotic they are
I'm not homosexual, but I can appreciate any kind of art, because I can use my brain to focus on the artistic skills without being afraid for my sexuality.
The problem is not that we are faggots anon, the problem is just that you're dumb as fuck.

Sexual tension has appeared in my recent work. And it's interesting to explore that with these characters. I also did a picture of her lying back spreading her cunt lips,with a smile daring her viewers to admit titilation. And I suppose that titilates me.

Because in most versions of that style the face warps as it turns anyway, because you need to see as much of the eyes and mouth as possible for the character to still emote. It's not a real anatomy and there's no real skull underneath, just rules of where to place the eyes and mouth and what the ratio should be between them, on simplified shapes that behave less like the body and more like a solid object like a car. If you can draw a realistic eye or mouth you can still draw those scaled to an anime face. But an anime face itself, especially so for the moè style faces, is not a real face, and it will be considered "ugly" the more realistic it looks, instead of being "better", whereas with almost any other part of the body more realism is generally viewed better, e.g. hands, feet. It's almost like religious iconography in that it has to depict the unreal in an accurate way or else it is poorly made.
The fuck is that stiff-ass pose lmfao. I bet that's from a westoid artist
Did you forget every weeaboo who wanted to work for anime studios?
>good luck going through that process when you're on a deadline
that's why you practice the basics a ton when starting out and some artists still do boxes and skells in their daily routine anon, to get them ingrained into your brain. that way when you have a deadline and have to work fast you'll still have the underlying foundation to do it at a level of quality.

Anons, I want to start drawing NSFW but I don’t want to associate it with my main blog because I’m starting to get freelance work from companies that cater to children and teenagers.
Am I being paranoid by thinking someone will eventually find my NSFW blog and make a retarded call-out post?
How do you keep your main blog and your NSFW blog separate without anyone finding out? Should I learn a new language to larp as a non-Westerner or something?

>client starts sending you nsfw art
>uuuuh is this yours?
this has never happened, its just retards trying to scare you OP.
Every artists worth their shit has an ALT where they draw loli porn.
If you're really worried, just make a NSFW under a different name. You don't have to go out of your way to hide your identity, as anyone who knows your art style will immediately recognize it, but don't go saying "This is the NSFW blog of [person]" either. Simply don't acknowledge it. Most people in the art community will understand and play along.
considering OP is a raging lolicon i don't think anybody will play along with them
