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

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.

Anon, can you explain pls?
Hi anon, beg here. I was watching stuff on twitter, i saw this. What dos it mean?
I'm a beginner, and i can't draw a cute, realistic girl with pencils like this. The girl looks very nice, it reminds me a bit of Bouguereau. I have never seen such good work in a beg-thread.
Okey, it is just a simple portrait of a little girl, not really big art. But the disney-sketch on the left isn't high art ether.
So yeah, i'm not really pissed but very confused. And i don't know what i am missing here...

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

If you have any additional questions, ask them.
Remember to ignore all chinese shills.

>I'm thinking of getting the Wacom One, should I buy it?
Fuck off retard. Ask a better question.

>Recommended tablets:

>Intuos 3
Best screenless tablet. Look for one on Craigslist or Ebay.
>Intuos 4, 5 & Pro
Also good options. Will burn through your nibs.
>Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite
Budget portable display tablet. Very solid drawing experience with Wacom EMR tech, but a small 10.4" display area.
>Used iPad Pro 2nd Gen 12.9"
Best option for a display tablet.
>Galaxy Tab S7+/S8+
Good premium alternative to an iPad Pro


>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. Check out the webm to understand how bad they are. Also watch out, Chinese companies shill HARD on /ic/; they do a lot of samefagging and frequently hurl personal insults.
>Microsoft Surface Pro
The N-Trig digitizer means you will always get wobbly lines.
Bad drawing performance because they're not designed with art in mind.
>Cintiqs & other desktop display tablets
Overpriced, prone to problems and will lead to back posture issues.
>iPads (brand new)
>iMacs and Macbooks
Never buy this garbage under any circumstance. It's a locked ecosystem with rubbish hardware you can't upgrade.

1. Don't post nudity or too revealing works.
When in doubt, post a censored copy here and link to the original off-site (e.g. litterbox/catbox, imgur, etc). Note: If you're having issues viewing catbox links, use a VPN.

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.

Use this thread instead of making new threads or post in the Drawthread with fundamental exercises.


RESIZE YOUR IMAGES TO ~1000 PIXELS using one of the following methods:
1.-screenshot the image and post that instead
2.-change camera capture settings to something smaller
3.-send to computer and resize in MSPaint


TRY TO BE MORE ACTIVE AND GIVE PEOPLE SOME FEEDBACK - many studies are left unreplied, which is a bit sad and can be quite demotivating for the people that try their best to improve, but are left directionless.

Rec me art teachers that don't hold back information
keep your secrets artist
Most teachers don't teach everything, and stretch their curriculum on purpose.

It makes sense, it helps them make more money off art students, and this is specially common in online courses.

But what teachers go straight to the point, and actually teach you how to draw and paint?

I know that Bridgman, and based Vilppu actually teach you how to draw, and maybe Loomemes too, but who else?

/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.**

I was thinking it would be nice to have a thread about how to improve our workflow. I'm gonna start with a question: I wanna change art program; I wanna move on from sketchbook to clip studio but, I'm very used to the way sketchbook handles zoom/moving/rotating with just a single shortcut. Is there a way to implement this on clip studio? There sure is something that can be done with so much customizable options on it.

Stop glorifying Twitter painters/renderers and start appreciating linework instead
The advent of digital "art" and software-based projects has given the chance of every mediocre artist out there to output "masterpieces" thanks to countless hours beautifying the canvas with the aid of software tools and attractive colors
A true artist is a fucking beast at linework and can sell work based on linework alone, THAT takes true skill and even more if it's done traditionally. You don't need anything more than a white canvas and black ink to output incredible stuff, but you decide to stay in your safe lane over-painting turds and encourage the community to follow suit as well

Eye Strain/Protection?
For digital artists especially, you guys ever get eye tiredness or strain staring at white canvas and screen all day?

I've tried blue light glasses, but they're tinted yellow of course. They help my eyes but distort color. I've tried avoiding white canvas in favor of more off-white/tan canvas. It helps a little too.

How about you guys? Any tips? Just suck it up?

how important are screen drawing tablets
ed gd xvegd vg
ive been using a cheap £50 tablet with no screen for ages, and im wondering if its becoming a limiting factor with my linework
i feel pretty confident with my lines unless its something challenging, i.e the weird head angle on the right guy, but my linework still looks rough. i have to do everything as quick flicks

does a screen afford more precision, or is the difference negligible

Frustrated with learning to paint.
Been avoiding making a dedicated thread about this but i'm fast approaching my wits end and both the painting and the process of learning how to do it is starting to become very draining for me.

You see when I wasn't studying it I had a sense of how to render and I did it with meh results but most importantly I actually finished pictures. Now that i'm actively studying ( courses tutorials studies etc.) I can only paint studies but can't transfer anything that I've picked up and successfully applied it to my own art.

It's like I'm petrified to fail all of a sudden and lately i spent HOURS brute forcing everything i touch, looking at countless pictures for references and inspiration, and doing all of these studies. Hell I picked up watercolors because I figure trad would aid in understanding how to paint better.

What am I doing wrong, and how do I bridge the gap?

Pic related is my work and i regularly posted in the OC threads till recently.

Thank you for helping an anon out in advance :)

Are art communities where the artists there are fairly skilled and focused on actually improving pretty much dead in the modern internet landscape? All I see on this board and all other "art communities" is people with shit to very amateurish skill levels as the average and some people that don't even draw at all and are there just to shitpost.

Pic related is something I'd refer as actual intermediate, and yet finding art servers were most people draw on around this skill level or higher is almost impossible. Why it is like that?

Why can't I finish any picture I start?
Been like this forever basically. Spent years grinding fundies and studying anatomy and have been trying to actually start making actual art now. But I find I can't actually finish anything. I struggle to get past the thumbnail sketch stage (coming up with an original composition from my head is nightmarish, particularily poses), than I never actually finish the picture.

I get stumped either on the form, or rendering, or color, or whatever else. I just feel like there's something fundamentally WRONG with all of my art. I will see countless shitty artists constantly pumping out art and improving yet even their shitty art is better than mine. There's just something off about everything I create and I'm not sure what it is, but it makes me feel like it's not even worth finishing.

If I could guess, it's that I can never find the right reference for whatever I need, so I end up frankensteining multiple refs together and it looks shit. Don't hae the means to just hire a model so I'm stuck with online refs. I also strugle with backgrounds, and color. Coming up with compositions and poses as I said is the absolute worst part for me.

Other than that, I just don't know what's wrong with me. Currently staring at a blank page trying to come up with thumbnail sketches for a Ranni piece I've been trying to do, and just can't fucking come up with anything.

I don't even paint or draw or whatever.

I act as helper to a well known home decorator and I come in as advisor when the time comes to hang some wall stuff... then source it and put 40% on the price I paid...

What about you?

How do I get out of symbol drawing and actually start improving?
I'm overwhelmed with all the guides and tutorials, I check books and they go to complex stuff like anatomy and perspective
I just want to get started fixing my symbol issues and drawing simple stuff to feel like I'm making progress before I can get into deeper stuff

I live in the third world. Relatively big city in my country. Not a single good art school. Thinking seriously about starting to teach digital art locally. But I only have coom and coom bait art so I would need to start to pump out some safe shit before starting out. Anyone here know anything about teaching digital art in person, are normies interested in it? I would have absolutely no competition here so in theory this should be a good idea, right? Or would traditional art be a better option for art school? There is also no competition for this, unless you count modern art/beg shit

A permabeg unable to quit
I chose art to be my hobby, because it sounded fun and productive. All I had done before was waste my days playing video games like some loser.
For me, the point of a hobby is to have fun. Drawing truly was fun, but over time the fun faded away and all that was left is worry and anguish. It's embarrassing. After years of drawing, my skill is at the same adolescent level: I'm a permabeg.
So the point of a hobby is to have fun, but this has not been fun for me for a long time. The drawings I produce are shit, and I have not improved at all. People have given me much heartfelt, good advice many, many times but I have not been able to take it.
I have tried several times to quit because of this, for art just isn't something I am able to do. But each time I have tried to quit, I have inevitably gotten back into it.
The longest amount of time I've been able to quit from art was about a month. That's all. I have tried to quit so many times but I always return, and still get sad, even more so.
Art depresses me. I can't do it. But I also can't not do it. I don't know why I keep getting back to it.
So what do I do?
Try to quit again? If so, how do I actually stop properly and forever?
To find some new kind of enjoyment through art? If so, how do I go about doing that?

WW3 has struck, and nuclear warheads have been launched at all major cities. You have 3 minutes to grab a backpack full of stuff before you run to the nearest fallout shelter.

What do you fill your backpack with? Loomis books? Sketchbooks? The Ipad Pro 12.9? Decide quickly.

Gesture is the motion, rhythm, flow, action and so on, but how does he apply these ideas of gesture on his drawings when he uses only boxes?
