What do Asians do to progress so fast?

it's honestly not as hard as you are making it out to be, they just know how to invest in reading more than the average low iq westerner

the ability to love your art no matter how shit you are, and copying and just draw

Asians are plain smarter. They’re more creative, soulful, intelligent, attractive, and hardworking than you ever will be.

イメージ (imeeji)
You ever notice how isekai characters have op magic that need no poetic casting because they can visualize it better than the natives? They are the isekai protagonist and you are the background character that can only conjure an ember after a lenghty invocation.

Asians are able to process information more efficiently, so technical skills come easily to us but we lack creative abilities and Faustian spirit. Also Asians are less attractive than whites on average, have you ever seen an Asian face in profile view? Typically Asians have a small brow bone and therefore our bone structure looks whack. There’s a reason why most of the revered masters in art were white men, not Asian men. Asians are naturally a collectivist group, we can’t think outside of the box as much as a white man can.

They practice a lot, in Japanese culture there is a reverence for "practice by repetition." There is a common belief that doing a thing every day will gain you mastery over it. In some religious tales one can achieve enlightenment by doing so, since Buddhism supports everyone to find their own ways of achieving enlightenment this has slowly got into the cultural mindset.

Heck if you look at weeb stories there is often the phrase that "Character trains hard ever day" to achieve whatever their goal is. This isn't just a meme this is something that is actually a thing.

most anime style art (especially loli) is drawn from reference. Gravure and CP, unironically. This is so common it's referenced in Welcome to the NHK where the MC's hikkiNEET friend sends him gigabytes of child porn as reference for him to draw the art for his eroge.
so in short they use forbidden techniques

white incels would rather spend time roleplaying and deluding themselves into thinking they're innately superior than improving

also thinking of themselves as naturally creative hence why western art spaces are known for having so much disgusting snowflake looking tumblr shit that the artists are fully convinced are their own developed styles

heres the real answer, and to hopefully rerail the derailment of racism that sprouts whenever these threads are made
The obvious and most important one is their culture promotes very hard work. this is news to no one

The thing people dont consider is that their education is much more streamlined for the kind of art im assuming you want to draw. That style of art being an eastern (for lack of better words) sort of anime-like one such as the one in the OP.
In the west we have our fundamentals covered hard, but from then on really the only paths are cartoons, fine art, or soulless concept art/photobashes. If you want to draw stuff that isnt that its gonna take a lot of time to learn, and all you really have are half assed youtube tutorials. It's far from impossible but it will take time, dedication, copying, and a lot of aimless experimentation.
However in the east this stuff is *mainstream* so they have learning this shit pretty much streamlined if youre willing to put in the work. So many lessons and actually good tutorials/classes on this type of art (which tragically we cant understand). Seriously, have you ever seen anything in english that's even close to a krenz tutorial? There's even the artbooks I'm sure you've seen that teach you how to paint step by step in clip studio. We just have fucking instagram tier painting youtube tutorials. That's why they seem to be able to progress so fast.
Again, it's not impossible to learn by yourself but there's nothing that makes you progress faster than a good lesson to feed you the answers right to your face.
If you dedicated all your time to something more widely taught in America (where I'm assuming you are) like fine art you'd probably get good at that pretty fast.

But it’s true? I don’t think it’s necessarily a bad thing. The collectivist nature is what makes Asians strong because we have a stronger instinct to do things for the greater good. Like a school of fish, that’s where the strength comes from. Asians are great at technical stuff and are efficient learners and workersI don’t think it’s self-hating, I think it’s simply accepting what is real instead of parroting the every race is equal BS. In a sense wouldn’t the other anon be self-hating or unreasonable for putting Asians on a pedestal? I promise, most asians are nothing special and just regular hoomans. And most Asians’ strength comes from the harsh learning environment they’ve been raised in from tiger mom culture

idk bout japs but koreans pretty much have classes and institutes specifically teaching anime style illustrations.

Copy their favorite artist
Learn render together with drawing
Actually make finished works instead of doodles and mindless fundie grinding.
>>
If you are in asia you only have anime and all the other artists are also doing anime. Having shared goal is a secret recipe. look at renaissance art. having less completely different artistic spirits actually increased the depth of the arts because you have more concentration of artists trying to perfect the art along a similar road, instead of many artists lost doing their own thing. too bad the perfection of anime art is moe and kakkoi shit.

Japanese people tend to do the mirror version of stuff the west does. Both cultures have saws, but Japanese ones cut on the pull whereas our cut on the push. Art is the same. All the things western artists say to do such as drawing for expressing feelings, minimalistic abstractions, deemphasization of fundies (basic shape shading, perspective, bodily proportions, scale, and most importantly appeal), the concept that true beauty is found in shocking and ugly imagery. Japan does the inverse of all of this. Make your art about expressing beauty accurately, remember the appeal factor (I.e. looking at your art truthfully and asking “would others find this as enjoyable to look at as I do?”), attempt to learn and draw bodies in proportion to themselves and in scale to surroundings and actually work on improving by copying what you see other artists doing effectively. That’s all they’re doing and anyone could do it. Even non Asians

Asian culture has always been more collectivist rather than western culture which has been more individualist since the Renaissance.

Asian art has had many masters (fucking hiroshige and kuniyoshi) but tends to be more defined by discipline and style rather than the personae of its artists

Shit I'm drunk and retarded and didn't read the last sentence

Freedom to copy unironically. There was always an unspoken contract with artists to copy each other and use the same ideas and plots and designs as everyone else.
It started from doujin culture. It's why anime tends to have the same plots or character trophes.

Americans always bitch and whine about anime artists having sameface or being too generic. But if something is not broken, why fix it? Consider how easy it would be to improve if all the steps ahead of you were already set, instead of having to reinvent the wheel and having to be original, figuring out how to be different and special like how american culture wants you to be.


Yeah this too

You faggots are just so obsessed with anime and manga that you only look for japanese artists that put out polished turds and allegedly "progress quickly".

the young ones seem to have been exposed to extracurricular activities after school within the music or art fields because mom and dad enrolled them and said so to impress other parents because 'my child is better than yours' and everything is about competition and money.

Japanese here. And that's true. Look at the Olympic games. Western and south American countries are good at football and Asians are not. But Japan is good at Judo and China has been the champion of Ping pong since forever. Why? Because they are all fuckin' popular in their countries and have many players. These days, France Judo is really strong because nowadays they have more Judo population than Japan. Anime manga is just really popular in Japan and in Asian countries where they are familiar with Japanese culture. Korea was even a part of Japan before the WWII. Asian people are said to be diligent and I don't deny it. But the western and the American are also hard workers that's why they are better at football than the Asian. There's no art genes nor football genes. Only culture is at play here.

Honestly Its your culture more than anything else not your race, its fucking pounded into your skulls from day one to not be freeloading faggots on society. So Asians just have to move on in life. If you aren't worth something to your peoples you aren't worth anything. But for Caucasians individualism is a BIG DEAL, going against the grain is a modern power fantasy so obviously whites are going to try and stray from the "norm". Which for some works, and for others doesn't. This thread is dogshit because its some retard not coping with the fact they aren't throwing their lives into art so they can escape the impending 9-5 for the next 50 years or get considered the lowest of the low.
>>
>>5526663
OKAY ANON LISTEN UP I'LL ONLY TELL YOU ONCE, THIS IS SOME SERIOUSLY HIDDEN JUTSU OK? KEEP THIS ON THE DOWN LOW
...we spin thrice, throw blood on the wall and then dance to an entire nightcore song before we sit down to draw.
>>
I draw about 1 - 8 hours a day, depending on how i am feeling.
When i get into the zone i can go for 12 - 16 hours.
I drawn everyday and will continue to do this till the day i die.

I think it is about commitment. Eventually you will get good. That is what i thought when i started 4 years ago.

>>5528977
How do you do this? I get really tired of drawing after like an hour
>>
>>5529006
You take adderall.
Jk, keep drawing for longer and longer periods. Force yourself to do it. You will have fun eventually doing it, you just need to push yourself out of your comfort zone first.
Make sure you are eating well, exercising and getting enough sleep too.
