Why does older anime have so much soul?
Seriously, I dislike things that are overly weeby design-wise like 99% of modern anime but old series like Lodoss War are much more pleasing and appealing to my eyes than shit like Goblin Slayer/Shield Hero and garbage like that. What exactly is the reason for this?

/dtg/ - Drawing Tablet General
This is a thread to discuss all kinds of digital drawing hardware: non-display graphics tablets, pen display tablets, portable tablets and more.

>What should I buy?
State your:
>Type (display? non-display? portable?)
>Size (in inches)
>Other information
>Previous equipment

If you have any additional questions, ask them.

>Recommended tablets:

Intuos 3 - Best budget tablet. Screenless.
Intuos Pro M - The best screenless tablet.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite - Budget portable display tablet. Very solid drawing experience with Wacom EMR tech.
Used iPad Pro 2nd Gen 12.9" - Best option for a display tablet.
Galaxy Tab S7+ - Good premium alternative to an iPad Pro
Used Cintiq Pro 24 - Big tablet for big budgets


XP-Pen, Huion, Gaomon and every other Chinese brand - Poor build quality, lackluster pens, broken tilt, struggles to register light pressure, horrible customer support and the displays are not calibrated. All Chinese brands are basically the same because they're all centralized. Also watch, Chinese companies shill HARD on /ic/; they do a lot of samefagging. Check out the webm to understand how bad they are.
Microsoft Surface Pro - The N-Trig digitizer means you will always get wobbly lines.
Lenovo - Bad drawing performance.

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

**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.**

/AFG/ - Art Friends General
Alone and lonely? Are you looking for a training partner at your skill cap? Friendly rivalry? Or perhaps a discord to share your work and talk to other likeminded friends like you? Whatever it may be, Art Frens General is the place where you can find your next best art friend.

1. Write a description about yourself and what you're looking for.
2. (optional but encouraged) post your work
3. Share your discord/email/social for mates to reach you

Most of all, be civil. This is a new experimental general so depending on how it goes I'll rewrite this later.

Manga Making General
The general thread for Manga / manga-styled comic-making and Manga-style illustration.

Support each other and talk about your work or the work of others that excites you. Inking, character design, paneling / layout, writing, planning, and other discussions are all welcome.

Post resources, questions, in-progress pages, breakdowns of other works, etc. If a work is not yours, credit the maker (unless it's fucking obvious like a full page of One Piece or something).

Thanks to everyone for making /mmg/ a level-headed and helpful place. Remember, drawing and making comics and manga are difficult endeavors, and we're all in this struggle together.

Art marketing
Where do you get your costumers, bros?
Did the pandemic affect the number of clients or is it just me?
Last year I was able to make a good amount of money with commissions. At that time I didn't have a lot of followers, but marketing my art on sites such as Reddit and Facebook did the trick for me and clients started reaching out.
This year has been pretty depressing.
Since last year I can honestly say that I've gotten better and I also tried to keep my prices the same.
I also marketed my art as usual but didn't get a single client.
Did you also experience a drop in clients?
I literally went from all to nothing.
Any suggestions on how to get more people to commission you?

2. **No Porn**.
No, not the retarded "anything with a body in it is porn" standard or "I see her underwear, MODSSS!!!" Use common sense.

3. Do not post sexualized child photo references. In fact, don't post pictures of children at all.

4. Due to the PPH (posts per hour/thread activity) of this general, please wait until the thread falls to around page 5 or 6 before making a thread. Use archived(moe) or warosu to retrieve the old threads.

I have a question directed to anons who are '/int/' tier, /beg/ for many years but are actually improving, and i guess any really good anons who are almost but not quite pro. Where is your point from where you're drawing for fun to where it just becomes tedious and feels like work? I mean, continuously progressing requires a lot of stepping out of your comfort. Do you view your work as being more work-like or hobby-like? When does that crossing point happen for you?

Being an independent splash artist
tl;dr: OP is tired of doing commissions and is asking advice on the viability of opening up a patreon to support himself creating splash art of anime/manga

Anons, i was watching One Piece, looked for some fanart of Zoro and got disappointed for not finding what i was looking for. Full illustrations were all anime style and the more rendered stuff always consisted in small portrait pics or whatever. So i thought "hey wouldn't it be cool if i had access to various splash arts of my favourite characters like people who play league have access to art of their favourite champions? I think i'd be fine with paying a few bucks to support that, so why isn't there anyone doing that?"

I've been doing commissions for a while and i'm a bit tired of doing it, plus i can't grow my account because i don't have time to post very often and when i post, it's commissions and no one cares about the 455123° generic ffxiv goth female OC with cat ears and dark skin. So that maybe could be a viable path, right?

It gets traction, i enjoy it, having a Patreon can escalate your income way more than individual commissions ever could, i'm not constricted to a client's bad idea, i have more time to work on each piece to really plan it and make it look cool, etc. What am i not seeing then? I'd be grateful for some insight.

it's literally this easy. now pic related would still be recognized as plagiarism, but that's easy to avoid: simply splice different pictures together and/or change details around. if i swapped out the head and changed the details, i.e. hair and clothing, no one would ever find out.

you're welcome

How to draw comics the marvel way is the best /beg book
images (5)
Yes even above loomis.

It teaches basic concepts nowdays people try to charge or paywall you like gesture, perspective, and the manikin.

It's easy to understand, beginner friendly and unlike loomis the diffuclty doesn't sky rocket from /beg to pro like how "fun with pencil to "figure drawing for all its worth does".

Also un lile loomis first book it actually explains how naaic shapes are used and basic perspective methods.

This should be the premier /beg book not pseudosciene betty edwards or loomis, only his head method begs can grasp guy.

And unlike literal who Betty Edwards, John Bucema made it.

This is an underrated gem.

How does the art in hellboy look so good?
Hellboy page
The art looks rushed, and the actual anatomy on a lot of things are fucked. For example, a lot of the time people are drawn with three fingers. The shading is just a harsh black. It's always the same black no matter the colour, and the shading is always colour to straight black. Yet I really like the art style, how does he do it?

you can do it
this is actual art that was actually reviewed by someone, approved, and put on a book cover. Harry Potter of all things. Its not like this was done because of a small budget.

you can make it, even with shitty art. you just have to actually look for those jobs, make a portfolio and do the boring and annoying task of networking and advertising your services. but just because you "make it" doesn't mean your art isn't utter trash. so ask yourself what is more important for you: making good art, or selling it. because those things aren't synonymous.

Rapidograph Pen Size
Hi /ic/, I have a friend who is a cartoonist and I'd like to get him a gift and another friend suggested getting him a rapidograph pen as these are the ones he uses for his cartoons. I'm not sure on which size to get him though because there's such a range. Any suggestions?

Why no one is commissioning me? I've done marketing myself, post my drawings on twitter and fb groups. I hate current wagie boss and I just want to live off my drawings. I did open 4 slots and my time to spend on each one is a week. But still. I can't be bothered writing fuvking blogs on my personal page like females do, only kids will be bothered reading shit like that. This one is an exception because I can't contain it anymore. Is $100 too expensive? I don't accept sketches, lineart, pineup, half body bullshit commission. I give a full, coloured picture for personal use. What else can I do with my art? Should I just submit myself to furry futa degenerate art? I just want to quit my job and spend days drawing. I can't take this anymore. Might consider hero'd too in August where I can fall like the autumn's leaves.

It will become illegal to draw coomart. Your federally mandated castration drugs will stifle any desire to. It's the next step of our evolution and ascension beyond our primitive animal ancestors. We artists will advance exponentially without the distraction of coomart. It will be good. So stop drawing coom.

Twittertard here
Is it just me or does it seem like Twitter is finally dying as a "art station"? Ever since the pandemic house arrest period has been lifting, I've been noticing far less activity on Twitter when it comes to coomer art and the like ratios I used to see on many art pieces that used to get thousands to even tens of thousands

Now most coomer art seem to only get a few hundred likes from most of the regulars that use to get lots more. The only exceptions are jap artists. So is Twitter actually dying now or is it just mostly a burger side thing, while the Japs are still doing good? Has anyone else been noticing this decline for art pieces?

long time no see /ic/, i need your help.

i've been drawing for the past 6 years and I have a "tic" when it comes to drawing, particularly on a tablet. my right arm will start to get incredibly restless, alongside my fingers (its like this sensation that i want to jerk my arm out of its socket), and i will start to get physically antsy and have this tight feeling all over my body.

are there any retards out there that get this same feeling, and have figured out how to cope? i dont have any meds for ADHD or whatever and this shit is driving me insane. i dont even have to be doing a bad job for it to start up, i can be drawing fine and all of a sudden its like my body is trying to reject what im doing.
