what does /ic/ think of RossDraws?
Screen Shot 2020-05-29 at 12.56.50 AM
I see this guy using low-opacity brushes for his portraits and for his illustrations.

But I also hear people who tell me to use 100% opacity.

As someone who is /beg/ in proportions, gesture etc, can I emulate Ross' style/method of illustration for my characters?

JUMP Tezuka Manga Contest General
tezuka contest
General thread for discussion of entries, contest prep, and related topics. Link the entry you're talking about unless replying to another poster.

Previous thread: >>4578862


Don't be a tool. Read the contest rules.

FAQ:

> isn't everyone gonna get BTFO by the JP entries?
No, separate prize pools

> do covers have to be black and white too?
Uncertain. Color them at your own risk.

> what's the page size?
Unspecified. It's recommended you work at at least 600 DPI regardless.

> do entries have to be shonen stories?
All genres are allowed, but keep in mind that this is still a Shonen Jump contest.

> Western reading direction or JP reading direction?
JP.

> What does "no scenario, name" mean?
Scenario refers to a script, and Name is the Japanese term for a storyboard or rough page layout. So, in other words, no sketches and no scripts. Finished works only.

Construction as training wheels
Japanese-Henta
did you use construction only as a beginner and then moved on to "just draw" ?
i can do fine when drawing from a reference, but when trying to draw from imagination without construction feels wrong.
don't know if it's that i just got used to it so much, but it just feels wrong.

What material for little figurines?

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?
To distinguish from the anime study thread (janitor supported). Please post your studies there and personal work goes here.

I know that you sweet beans don't really like art school, and I get why. I'm 22 years old and want to go back to school one last time.

I know that many of you have done similar research on countries that have more affordable art/animation school opportunities, and I'd like to compare notes I guess... and maybe find a place that has a "good" course...

I ironically my main gig right now (that pays the bills) is art and animation...

I'd given up on going to art school a while ago, until I found the animation workshop in Denmark, that happens to be tuition-free and also have a great course. I live in the UK, so the only problem is that the UK is leaving the European Union, so the art school would not be free anymore(for me)
I'd be glad to go anywhere that isn't too expensive and has a decent course.

PS: pic is unrelated lol

Why You Should Copy Anime:
https://i.imgur.com/zNDsyF0
https://youtu.be/t_IODIIYAe0 [Embed]

**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.

**Draw copies from good anime styled references to mindfully up our mileage, internalize appealing aesthetics, and learn from each other’s processes and knowledge.**

Ok, here it is.
I’m going to put an end to your suffering.

Step 1. Watch Proko’s anatomy - not his figure drawing.
Step 2. Watch all the Will Weston courses.

These are the most effective and user friendly courses on the web. If you have any aptitude whatsoever this will get you up and running.

From here you will know where you are strong and weak and will know what you need and what will be a waste of time.

That’s it.

I've done some loomis, done some figure drawing, gesture, and then I realized that I'm happy with showing my characters (at least for now) only showing the upper portion of their body.

I have basically no interest in realism and realistic art. I admire them, sure, but w/e.

Branching out stylistically
image0-14
Recently, I have been working on skils that I know are my weakness, and I've improved a lot. But I have also managed to find a fairly comfortable niche for myself which I fear will hinder my improvement if I stay in. My art is not that good, but people like the style. I want to try out new styles that I am less good at but I don't even know any styles that would work well with the subject matter I am drawing. It has gotten to the point where I am kind of scared to try other styles.

Which is quicker?
writing-furiously
Which is the quicker way to improving:
1. 6 hours of studies every single day
2. 3 hours of studies and 3 hours of imaginative work.

The downside is that when you're doing imaginative work you're often drawing slower, not drawing as much, and drawing loosely. You aren't observing, you just drawing things you've drawn before, and you often stay in your comfort zone. When you do studies the thing is right in front of you and your pen is constantly moving. This is what Feng Zhu seems to recommend.

If you're /beg/ and trying to get to a professional level as quickly as possible, which is best? Assuming you don't care about making personal art or soul and you just want to work for a studio.

Line art style
zang3
I can't quite figure out which style of line looks better. I'm trying to figure this out for days now, and I'm still far from finding an answer myself. I've asked friends and they gave me useful advice, but I want opinions from you anons. On the left the lines were used with a simple flow/opacity brush, and on the right with a basic pressure size brush. Which one looks better to you and why? Does it even matter to you the viewer? If the info helps, I want to use a single one to have a smooth workflow and recognizable style, and the pic was made in Krita.

How do I stop Photoshop being a sweaty tryhard with colour profile fuckery?

I have a spyder calibration tool and am using an xp pen display tablet alongside my main monitor. I have colour calibrated both, both give the same output now. Colours remain consistent in sai when I move the window between displays. But with photoshop, the colours all become slightly less saturated in my xp pen display. Whats worse is, its not like the xp pen display cannot physically show the right colours, because as I am dragging the window down the colours remain the same as on the main display until the instant I let go of the mouse click, then poof, they all desaturate. How do I disable this bullshit?

analog vs digital for a beginner?
AvD
I've always been interested in drawing but became quickly discouraged and thought it was just a matter of being born with it, so I never tried (even as a kid, this was my mentality).

however, now I'm interested and initially was drawn towards a drawing tablet, but is this a bad way to go for a beginner who is looking to build up those fundamental principles? am I going to hinder actual progression through becoming reliant on digital by going that route too quickly?
