How about this?

probably a couple hours to draw, then coloring would take most of the time.

Honestly it depends on the persons skill level and motivation. Unmotivated this could take me days to finish (working on it a few hours at a time.)

If I'm manic then probably 4 hours.

Do you include designing her as if miku never existed? Do you include deciding on a color palette? Do you include experimenting with different rendering styles for the hair? That would add weeks or months. Then you have to add the time you spend grinding bodies, so years.

this sort of layered, propulsive, polygonal look is an interesting alternative to a lot of the 'heavier' grimdark western comic art. In certain instances it allows him to do things which are more grounded or sculptural. It has this more animated, 'Paper Mario' sort of feeling. It's surprising that they haven't made a game with this particular dynamic.

Syd Mead's art wasn't anime styled so it's not anime.
But his art was referenced in an anime.
However Turn A Gundam still looks like a typical anime.(in terms of the stylization/form, not the subject)

I haven't seen any enviromental art posters lately so it'd be cool to share some if you guys have any. I think environments really plus out illustrations but people tend to overlook them until they really have to draw them (Of course, I have also fallen to character floating in space).

If you are into drawing environmental art, why do you do it? Is it just a fun subject you like, do you do it for work or, do you do it to further your own projects?
Is there any resources you find helpful?
Any environment studies lately?

Image to start is just an example I like, I'll start in the thread.

How can a 40yo improve his drawing skills to be able to animate? Asking for a friend...
>>
>>6498394

How are your animation principles? Do you know what a key pose is? Try animating a rotation or following a walk cycle guide. Or take a character sheet from someone like Glen Keane and try to mimic that. Note the emphasis on structure and the 2d cheats to keep consistency of the design.

Other than that, draw tons of gestures that are in the 30 second to 5 minute span. Keep your strokes minimal and aim to finish the pose.

>t. Ex animation student who hated animating but somehow still knows how to animate stuff after several years

>>6498394
Here are some tips for your friend to improve their drawing skills for animation:

1. Practice regularly: The key to improving drawing skills is consistent practice. Set aside time each day or week to draw, and gradually increase the difficulty of the subjects you tackle.

2. Study anatomy: A strong understanding of anatomy is crucial for creating convincing and believable character animations. Consider taking a class or studying anatomy books specifically geared towards artists.

3. Study the principles of animation: Familiarize yourself with the 12 principles of animation and put them into practice in your own drawings and animations.

4. Experiment with different mediums: Experiment with different mediums, such as pencils, charcoal, or digital tools, to find what works best for you and expand your skillset.

5. Learn from others: Seek out tutorials, workshops, or online communities of animators and artists. Observe the work of experienced animators and ask for feedback on your own work.

6. Take breaks and have fun: Don't get too caught up in perfecting every drawing. Remember to take breaks and have fun, as this will help you stay motivated and avoid burnout.

I want to become a character/creature concept artist here's the thing, I was wondering if it could be a good idea to alternate other styles of illustration jobs that they're easier to sell while I pursue the concept art niche in my spare time, what do you think?

what do you think concept art is? why do you talk so confidently about shit you have no idea about? you know you can get your teeth smashed in in some places for making dumb ass assumptions like that?
>>
>>6497822
Yes, it can be a good idea to alternate between other styles of illustration to increase your income while pursuing your passion for character/creature concept art in your spare time. This way, you can gain experience and build a portfolio in different styles, making you a more versatile and marketable artist. However, it's important to keep in mind that you should prioritize the quality of your work over the quantity, and not spread yourself too thin. Focus on developing your strengths and creating a body of work that showcases your unique style and abilities.

This looks cheap and goofy to me, especially with that quote, but who knows. If you know she likes this kind of thing then that shouldn't be a problem. If you don't know and you're just trying to guess what she would like then this might be bad, maybe she'd like something more stylish looking like this or at least have the inspirational quote in some kind of calligraphy font. Idk, she's your girlfriend.

>Animation
The easiest way in would probably be being a clean up artist, in-between artist, or a compositor. You’d still need a basic understanding of animation (puppet animation is particularly useful here) and a demo reel showcasing your animation work and how to navigate a handful of programs such as toonboom, animate, premiere and whatever else they use these days.

>Games
This is what I’m most familiar with. Shoot for mobile games as an illustrator or concept artist. I’d suggest you join a game jam online or if you’re a student, get an internship somewhere for experience and for what to put in your portfolio. 3D knowledge is a huge asset here. If you have the knowledge to create nice low poly props or how to integrate 3D into your workflow, you’re a goddamn jewel. Also, if you have any programming experience that is also tremendously useful. Games are way more competitive for artists than animation in my experience so be warned.

Both industries also require that you learn how to mimic their in-house style as closely as you can, so learn to get good at this.

I’m sure I’m missing some stuff so some other pro can chime in and correct me.
