> At least you acknowledge that the east does this shit at well at an even more exaggerated level
Most assuredly, I think I would be delusional to not acknowledge that. I remember watching some shows and just feeling insulted, the pandering was so transparent that I could only bare to watch one episode. I've been recognizing this kind of thing more and more in media, but that may just be me growing up, since animated toy commercials have been common for decades.

I have my soft spots though: I like big robots a lot and tend to excuse faults in shows with them. Pic very related.

yea, but he never went for the sort of looseness that anon was referring to. with durer, everything is carefully and individually hatched; random rocks and pebbles get painstakingly crafted.
meawhile rembrandt would/could bury things in scribbles, or throw hatching across a bunch of things at once or leave them at a few lines instead. motherfucker puts a dog with five squiggles for a head in the middle of that scene.
Durer made woodcuts and copper plate engravings mostly.
No. It is an important distinction.

I don’t know what I should study/work on next. What do you think my art is lacking beside colour.

Really love the style OP. Made me think of this.
A lot of people add copious amounts of detail to mask anatomy errors. Plus, once someone reaches high/beg/ they usually develop a misguided belief that less detailed=lazy/bad.

Work on anatomy and what not. The left leg (our left) is extremely flat and her hair is too big. The cartoony face also looks uncanny when combined the everything else being more realistic and detailed.
the snail nor the person are in the correct perspective give the impression that theyre sitting on the box
the girl especially looks like shes just floating there and her left leg looks super fucked up
Good art, but little thought.

I say you should give each individual shape more individuality, instead of just making it correct.

Those knees tell me nothing, the arms are boring, the way the neck sits on the torso is not appeaing. She looks like she has clown shoes and uses a diaper.
I'm not trying to crab, I like the artwork, but I'm being hyperbolic in hopes you see the problem and start thinking of cooler, more dynamic ways of grouping the big shapes before going into meticulous detailing.

How do you lot deal with seeing younger artists who are way, way better than you? I'm 22 and I draw like shit but I recently saw a 16 y/o with rendering skills that made my art look like straight up autistic scribbles. I get that it isn't a race or competition, but yeah.

A lot of people feel like they need to have it all figured out by their 20s and if they don't then that's it.

It's not true at all honestly.
It doesn't matter how good other people are, just find your goals and work towards them.

>How do you lot deal with seeing younger artists who are way, way better than you?
i dont care. in fact i hope they make tutorials so i can learn from them too.
>it isn't a race
indeed. stop thinking about it and go draw.
honestly I just feel bad for a minute and then I forget, I've probably seen a few young artists that have made me feel bad about my poor skills but I couldn't name you either of them or even remember what their art looked liked. You shouldn't think too hard about it, you can only go forward, trust in your skills and the time you put on them

what were you doing in 4 years and 11 months
Uni and working to pay rent, mostly

How do you balance your time with both art and uni?
Grinding both art and uni seriously feels so fucking hard on me mentally. I managed to balance it enough to get uni shit done and still draw for atleast 4-5 hours a day, but the mental drain is getting more and more unreal, each day I barely have enough energy left to do anything, still kept on pushing thru, but this is getting out of hand.
I've heard people telling me to just take a break, or pace myself slower, but I am done being the person taking breaks every month, and pacing myself slower would mean only drawing 1-2 hours a day? Is that even enough?? And cutting off portions from my uni shit isn't even an option.

NGMI wagie
I left uni for art.
Just got a Masters with Distinction in Concept art. All the immigration systems value papers to enter UK US and Canada.
Never had to choose.
I'm on the same boat, I would draw everyday before university, but now I don't have enough time or my energy is drained from it. I've tried making schedules but I've failed to follow them time and time again. I like my major but I can't wait for vacations

Especially at daytime, given AKIRA's daytime isn't as fun as its nighttime, which is understandable

How do you analyze and understand a design style?
I've been really interested in concept art and have been trying to understand this idea by looking at designs from a particular IP and trying to break them down and create designs that would fit.

For example I was looking a the mechanical designs in this game and when looking at those images I noticed things like the colors, flowing lines, curved surfaces. Overall it felt very neo-futuristic in the vein of artists like Syd Mead, but it also has a distinctly early 2000s look.
But beyond that I think I'm missing a lot of other details that contribute to the design style.
I guess another way to put what I'm trying to ask is what are some fundamental design traits to look for and be aware of when trying to understand a design?

This is a different design from the same IP but they use shoes as a reference.
What I struggle to understand is how the artist was able to take such different objects, but still work them into designs that fit under the same aesthetic umbrella.
These mechs are so ugly why you want to imitate the style?
I think they look interesting. They caught my eye because they deviated a lot from conventional mecha design styles.
I don't wanna use its style completely, but I want to understand them from a design perspective.
Could you elaborate on why you think they look ugly?
Let's be honest. Most of the time the artists don't analyze anything, he just comes up with it and that's it. You have never dreamed of a whole casta of characters and an interesting story in your dream? That's what I'm talking about.
Maybe for some, but the industrial designers I've been looking at definitely seem more conscious about the decisions they make.
The aforementioned Syd Mead was notable for thinking about his designs that way, Kunio Okawara too.
The doujin circle that the artist posted in this thread is from also did a very in-depth analysis and redesign book on the Turn A Gundam.(pic related)
I do think, that in a broader sense, after a while you internalize that knowledge and it becomes easier to dream up designs as you put it.
But when it comes to industrial design specifically there's usually a more conscious effort to think about these aspects.

I mean you can use the phone for hotkeys and touch controls, too. Plus it's cheap as fuck if you just want to use the smartphone plan to make your phone into a shortcut pad instead of drawing on it with pressure sensitivity.
It would be useful for photoshop and csp for when you are blending edges and want the resulting mixed color to be accurate instead of digital goop. Especially if you mix more than 2 colors.
it’s literally the same rgb mixing and brush engine as csp, it’s the same “digital goop”, but now you’re blending shit with your finger and no pressure sensitivity
>t. Doesn't use a galaxy note with wacom pressure sensitive stylus for blending
>just drop the stylus you’re using and pick up another one so you can use your phone to do something you could do on your pc in 1/10 the time lol

Every GF I had was leaner with a much better physique. You guys should stop watching so much porn and go touch grass. Also, maybe acquire better taste.

Let me guess, you are overweight, right?
