Why is everyone so artistically obsessed with this thing as the pinnacle of digital art tools.
Are Surface Pros or Samsung really that bad of a choice comparatively? Surface just got Fresco too so whats the big deal with Procreate? Is this just an Amerifat thing where they suck Apples dick?

Myths that holds you back
I have made a lot of mistakes along the way. I want to tell you what they are so you can avoid them and not waste as much of your life as I did.

Did you ever see a fat woman say she doesn't want to work or too much because she's afraid her arms will get too big? Maybe that's a uniquely delusional lazy american phenomenon but I've heard it many times. News flash, muscle doesn't sneak up on anyone over night. You have to work extremely hard to build and maintain it. The natural state is atrophy.

Likewise, I used to do the same shit with artists I didn't want to learn from. I thought I'd I don't like the artist then listening to them would inhibit my skill and creativity. My parents offered to pay for me to go to art school and I turned it down because I thought I was a genius who was gonna be self taught.

Get that shit out of your head. That is a trap that will ruin you. That's like saying you don't want to learn Tae Kwon do because it's gonna make you worse at fighting. No it isn't. You can debate over what's the best martial art but none of them are worse than doing nothing at all. No one has ever become less creative because of a bad art teacher or book or youtube video. My #1 piece is dice to all of you is to drop your ego. Humble yourself. Be open minded to everyone's techniques. Don't go into it assuming you already know. Go into it like a Newborn. Trust them, do exactly what they say. Then if you like it stick with it, it's you don't, move on. But the only thing that's gonna make you worse is refusing help. It's letting your pride get in the way. It's vertically the same problem as not drawing because you are afraid of drawing something bad. You have to make mistakes. It's unavoidable but unlike martial arts you aren't getting punched in the face.

Alternative Art/Stylization General
Previous >>4380142

What is /ALT/?
If you're looking for a place to post your cartooning then you've found the right general. This is /ic/s 1st and only merged hub where both Eastern and Western stylization can coexist peacefully, hence the double title. However, by community demand and long history, this is favorably an Anime general.
>Rules & Guidelines
(1) Any form of cartooning is welcome; so submit and receive feedback from others. (2) Please resize your images before posting. (3) Share your knowledge and (4) Remember to not be afraid of asking for critique. Most importantly I encourage you to keep discussion at a civil level, but you're more than welcome to share your opinions.
>I came for anime. Why does the image OP say cartoons general?

/pi/ - Pure Imagination Thread
It's time to flex those brainiums, bust out those construction drawing skills, and sift through them visual libraries because in this thread we don't use any reference besides memory and RAW! BRAIN! POWER!

Post art you made using absolutely no reference. Anything from imagination. From sketches to drawings to full-blown paintings.

SUPER HARDCORE BONUS ROUND: The ultimate test- draw with no erasing or undos, Kim Jung Gi style. We'll just have to take your word for it if you're drawing digitally. You better not be lying, because that wouldn't be very nice, now would it?

Is creativity more important than fundamentals?

I've been reading Manga in Theory and Practice by Hirohiko Araki. He mentions going through the popular mangas and figuring out what they are doing right. He also mention looking at what unpopular mangas are doing wrong.

I noticed the most popular mangas tend to all have bad art. Attack on titan, One Punch Man and Demon Slayer all have shitty art, but are insanely popular.

I also noticed people who have better art tend to sink a ton of time into it. Vagabond artist said he puts in 90 hours a week. That 90 hours a week pretty much leads to nothing.

Even worst Hirohiko Araki has a crazy schedule and I didn't even know who he was. So much work and he is barely surviving in this industry.

I looked at what these NGMIs are doing and most of them have really strong fundamentals, but their creativity is shit.

Made in abyss comes to mind. Akihito is a basement dwelling virgin who lives with his mother, yet his creativity is huge. Now he is a millionaire. He is so lazy he can't even be bothered to write a chapter a month. Same with Hunter X Hunter artist, he does child scribbles, but can't pump out a couple of pages a year.

/asg/ - Anime Study General
Why You Should Copy Anime:

Make it Stick: The Science of Successful Learning:

**Strive for quantity AND quality.**

Anime Studying:
>Copy anime references exactly and draw them from memory. Use illustrations, screenshots, anime figures, 3D models, etc.
>Don’t copy recklessly. Use construction, color theory, and other fundamental concepts to rehearse a drawing process that you can later easily manipulate for original artwork.
>Post all of your anime studies. Post even when you’re told not to. Create an art community that actually draws and improves together instead of just talking about it.
>Number your attempts and link to your previous posts.
>Critiquers should lead by example by posting their studies.

General Anime Style Discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.
>Drawing methods, study habits, resources, tutorials, tools, software, etc
>Be specific and try to post a sample of your study attempts before asking for help.

**Keep most of your personal works for /alt/ or the other critique threads. Here we should be drawing copies from good anime styled references to mindfully up our mileage, internalize appealing aesthetics, and learn from each other’s processes and knowledge.**

two superheroes trapped in a box: the funny meme
Whoever did this, I gotta hand it to them. Not only did they do these characters right, but the way how it looks... it's so thrilling. Say, I've liked this kind of artwork ever since the day I first laid my eyes on it. Now, I'm certainly not saying this because I'm gay, though, for that's the exception. I'm saying this as of how obsessed I am with it.

Say, I wonder if we were to see them like this in some series or any movies and how would they be like that towards each other?? Did they instantly or suddenly fall together from the sky from outer space?? Did anyone force the both of them in the box, like a villain or a muscular strong person (they probably could've punished them to get in there because of some behavior of theirs that happened)?? Or could it be that they wanted to amuse their own fans for the heck of it and just get in the box??

Maybe... just maybe, it could be that the superheroes were to be frenemies and, for that reason, wanted to end up in a box to deal with how they are towards each other to see if they could make it.

Maybe if this were to happen in reality, people might never forget about it and take pictures of the moment, as if if were to be something special to them. People, as in Spiderpool shippers and fans of these two dudes, y'know the rest

Is this a stupid idea?
So I'm at a point in my life where I have no passion for anything, I think I like sex but thats about it. I don't care for relationships, exercise, making a lot of money etc. This probably to do with my depression, I've taken anti depressants but it doesn't seem to work.

Anywho, despite this I want to create a 30 page graphic novel. I don't enjoy the process of sketching/inking/drawing or writing but I already completed the script and its been bothering me. Its been bothering me to the point where I've been dreaming about it.

I don't want to hire any artists or anything but I wont feel any sense of accomplishment. I guess thats what i'm looking for, the feeling of accomplishment. It was the same way with my college degree, I had absolutely no interest in it but I managed to get 3.5/4.0 GPA and I felt a sense of accomplishment from doing it.

I haven't any major accomplishments since then and I feel like completing this 30 page graphic novel will give me a sense of accomplishement. Do you guys that doing this is stupid? Do the ends justifify the means?

Digital killed the disney animator
>TFW been training and practicing with traditional pencil like art for over 5 years,
>TFW in between this period behind the scenes a huge transformation has been occurring and gaining even more momentum --
Digital art is seen by the art world, art Directors and studio heads as 'THE PREMIUM FORM' and most of their hires are people proficient with wacoms (quicker to modify or adapt to other art in the project), Adobe Illustrated vector renderings etc. - All these skillets equal a quicker turnaround and show that the person is up to date with industry trends and can be maladjusted as needed

MFW my failure will not be that I am a 'bad artist' but my failure to adapt to superior art process and style -- I am seen as an obsolete fossil within the spate of a few years and have no skills in drawing with tablets and thereby a huge risk even if one studio or animation department took a punt on me over a digital illustrator.

My plan is to reconfigure myself and get into Maya 3d Animatition and the like.

What do you guys think about being a digital nomad for a freelance artist?

Digital nomad basically means traveling from country to country, staying no more than 1-3 months (depeding on visa agrements). Usually to cheaper places like southeast asia or southamerica with low cost of life, where you can live comfortably with 1000 bucks/month.

You could even avoid paying taxes if you don't stay in one country for more than 6 months. As for healthcare, there are decent insurances that don't go past 100/month.

Presumably you should already be making some money and not start from zero in another country. But I think it could be a really nice option if at least for short term (~5years)

Hey kings, need some advice
So, I've basically began drawing with a tablet a week or so ago (before that I used to draw random things on paper once every year) and this is what I have.

I'm currently trying to replicate hellonearth's style, because I find it rather simple yet very appealing at the same time. (I hope to adopt it in future) I find drawing hands, especially fingers extremely hard, as well as getting the right length and proportions. Are there any tutorials on how to draw characters in the same sort of style as hellonearth?

Do you think I have any potential or should I abandon this idea?

How do you learn design skills? Is it a trainable skill like anatomy, color or perspective?
One thing I've noticed from artstation is that so many of the most skilled artists seem to have no ability to design well. Everything looks like it relies on cliche tropes and ends up generic.
So many 'concept design' or thumbnail tutorials just seem to be throwing random shapes all over the place and the finished pieces never look properly thought out, as if by an actual designer.

Acrylic acetates for pen display?
Ok so, I have a problem. Been using my pen display which I bought a week ago and have noticed just how easily the anti glare protector gets scratched despite me being like, super gentle with the pen. The anti glare screens however are not sold by Amazon in my country for some reason so... I saw a video of a dude saying that one can instead use acrylic acetates instead of "official" protectors and... well, I wonder if it actually works. I wonder if it actually works and I wonder if acetates won't simply melt with the heat the tablet produces at the lower right corner after hours of drawing on it.

Mechanical Pencils
Give me some of your own personal notes on using mechanical pencils. Lead size preference etc.
Until recently, i never got used to using a mechanical pencil, I'm never able to draw poses correctly with it.
I don't know how to explain it, but i just couldn't feel the "energy" when drawing using a mechanical pencil as opposed to using a hb or a b pencil. Everything felt stiff for some reason. Safe to say, I messed around with it once in a while, and i find it more comfortable using it to clean up my drawings, in the final stretch of the process.

I don't mean designing a character period, I do that. I mean either creating a fancharacter for an existing series, or making a selfinsert OC in general (not just in the world of fanart).
I don't look down on those who do, not at all; I've just never really considered doing something like that. I have friends who've told me it's really fun to do, but I don't see the appeal personally.

/asg/ - Anime Study General
Why You Should Copy Anime:

Make it Stick: The Science of Successful Learning:

**Strive for quantity AND quality.**

Anime Studying:
>Copy anime references exactly and draw them from memory. Use illustrations, screenshots, anime figures, 3D models, etc.
>Don’t copy recklessly. Use construction, color theory, and other fundamental concepts to rehearse a drawing process that you can later easily manipulate for original artwork.
>Post all of your anime studies. Post even when you’re told not to. Create an art community that actually draws and improves together instead of just talking about it.
>Number your attempts and link to your previous posts.
>Critiquers should lead by example by posting their studies.

General Anime Style Discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.
>Drawing methods, study habits, resources, tutorials, tools, software, etc
>Be specific and try to post a sample of your study attempts before asking for help.

**Keep most of your personal works for /alt/ or the other critique threads. Here we should be drawing copies from good anime styled references to mindfully up our mileage, internalize appealing aesthetics, and learn from each other’s processes and knowledge.**

Why don't people consider art work to be work?

I was getting paid to create a mural and my gf was sitting there complaining and saying shit like "why's this gotta take so long, We have work tommorow"

Right in front of the client.

I had to ignore her because I didn't want to tell at my girlfriend in front of people and the mural didn't turn out the best because of it.

I got angry at her in the car... This kinda shit makes me look in unproffesional and the only reason someone would do it is because they don't consider art work to be work.

And now that customer can show other people how I over charged for a shit job.

Even when getring paid to make art work people don't consider it work and that makes no sense.

how do you have your art backed up? the last 8 or so years worth of my work has been almost exclusively digital and i have tons of psd files and unfinished sketches and such on an external drive and I'm probably going to invest in a second backup drive. i've even thought of printing everything out. it would be tedious and expensive but I'm paranoid of the hard drive failing or something and would probably kill myself if i lost everything.

Is it normal for anti glare protectors to get scratched quick?
Bought a pen display last week to get into digital and holy fuck, the anti glare protector gets scratched so easily, I'm fairly sure I'm applying less than one third of the allowed pressure with all of my strokes and yet the protector already looks scratched in several points. Is this normal so early on?

Looking for a pose
There's a pose I want to get but I can't find it myself and I can't either take a photo of myself doing it because I live alone.

I need a nude photo of either a male or a female leaning their elbows on any surface (a desktop for example) while their necks and body weight is supported by said weight, so that I can see the arch of the armpit from a profile view, the convergence of pectoralis and latissimus as well as the insertion site of the triceps and the diisplacement of the scapula. Basically, any side photo photo of someone bending forward can work.

Pic related is the closest I have found but I need it to be fully taken from the side, not 3/4

Does clay help?
I was trying to understand more about skull anatomy, but even when I went through Loomis and even watched 3D models of the skull, it didn't quite sit in my psyche. And then I got the crazy idea of buying a pound of clay and sculpt it myself in order to "feel the form" and... it kind of did.

Pic unrelated.
