>0: Thread for people who are interested in trades.

1: Post a brief backstory if your original character has one.

2: Character design critique and discussion is welcome.

3: Keep it fairly SFW. Lewds are fine but no explicit porn.

4: This is NOT a request thread. Artists ONLY. No spamming original characters/infodumps without proof of prior delivery.

5: Be sure to thank Drawfrens for their hard work as soon as you can, it's just common courtesy :^)

6: Avoid off-topic discussions and DO NOT respond to bait posts.

7: Leave all the chit-chat out unless to thank drawfrens. Draw more and talk less.

Gesture Club
image
I'm started a pre-beg to beg gesture drawing group a few days ago. We now have a few members. Anyone can join though. I post poses, we draw poses gesturally or do sketches, any amount of time, just a way to get work out and have positive community. Something casual. No toxic critique and I'll be pretty zero tolerance on uninviting anyone not there to draw. Open to suggestions via DM but keeping it pretty minimalist. It's my group.

/mmg/ - Manga Making General
Love Hina Chapter 36
The general thread for Manga / manga-styled comic-making, manga-style illustration and related comic work. That said, everyone is welcome here.

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.

Underrated advice thread
1605952557410
Post the most overlooked and underrated advice that most anons don't take seriously enough, in your opinion. Or anything that you used to dismiss, but now think is extremely important.

For me, it's drawing directly with a pen. Being able to one shot your shapes and form in with minimal construction is extremely important. When you do studies, instead of constructing, just lay in what you see directly with a ballpoint pen. Eventually, you'll memorize those shapes and drawing will no longer be a struggle: you'll know directly where to put everything beforehand. No more struggle, no more sketching, no more bad drawings.

General dedicated to posting and discussing art of either:
1. Manmade objects, vehicles, tool, weapons etc. (of any kind and any historical era, as long as they fall in the ballpark of "technology") and fictional derivatives of such
2. Objects,vehicles, creatures etc. that aesthetically fall into the visual space of mecha/robot/artificial/cybernetics etc. regardless of level of realism.
Helpful to mention the level of realism, if any, you are taking into account in the art.

**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.**

XP Pen released magic drawing pad for $500, several reviews mention inaccurate calibration. Don't recommend it until xp pen addresses this

>What tablets does /dtg/ use?
https://strawpoll.com/polls/NoZrLOmrDn3

>General guidelines when picking a tablet:
- All of the recommended models are part of large lines with multiple sizes/generations available. Buy the biggest/newest in your budget. Medium-Large pen tablets or 16-24" display tablets are considered the sweet spot by most artists.
- If you don't see a tablet you're interested in listed, ask about it. This isn't a definitive list, just one to give you an idea where to start looking.
- Wacom is still the industry standard, but they're overpriced and a lot of pros and studios are switching. Chinese brands have caught up in the past few years and will provide a near identical user experience for a fraction of the price.

No, they're not info-hashes or magnets; we're encoding the links to keep bots and scripts from recognizing and harvesting/reporting them. You will see a GIF in the first two or three posts that explains what to do. Don't understand some of the terms? Google them.

/YGL/ Yuri Girl Love General
i.4cdn.org[slash]b[slash]1707365459569422.jpg
Welcome to the first installment of the Yuri Girl Love General. I invite you into these threads to challenge ourselves by drawing at least two or more Female figures and put an emphasis on the figures interacting with each other; that means you're going to be getting involved into a little bit of story telling with your figures - not with words but purely under a visual medium and adding an environment or background with the figures is highly encouraged but it is not required. These threads should operate similar to the Yuri board >>>/u/ in the aspect that a drawing must contain at least two visible Female figures in order to post. For other drawings with a single Female figure such as the "1girlwhitevoid" pin up drawing or any drawings with a visible Male figure please post in the regular draw threads instead.

New to Yuri? Yuri is a genre from Anime that puts emphasis on relationships that are powerful between Females whether they be tender loving, sadistic, or just plain unfriendly. Please visit the Yuri board >>>/u/ for a general introduction to this Anime genre and just like the Yuri board suggests, drawings of Lesbian sex or nudity between two or more female figures is allowed but not required.

Have an OC? Shipping your favorite anime character with another lady? Got a personal project you're working on? Feel free to post them here but remember this is a visual arts board where you tell your story not with words but under a visual medium with forms and shapes.

I tried drawing on my desk

But after 1-2 hours my neck hurts like FUCKING CRAZY. And the angle of my neck isn't even that bad. How do y'all draw like this?
I guess I'll just alternate between using the desk arm mount and putting the tablet on my desk?

>There is one thing not to do, and that is simply to drift along with the daily routine, making no extra effort. You will soon find yourself middle-aged, having done nothing more than routine jobs, and being little farther along than you were years ago. The extra effort is the difference between the great mass of mediocre artists and the comparatively small group of very good ones.
>And in Art, study can never stop. You will find sketches galore in the studio of the good man, with the paint quite fresh. The mediocre artist's sketches are old and dusty.
>I have seen so many middle-aged artists still hoping, whose samples are frayed at the edges, and thumb-marked with time. Sometimes it has been a matter of years since they sat down and actually did something to give their hopes any promise. They are plodding their lives away at something they hate, and doing nothing about it. These are the men who never seem to have had a chance. The truth is, they never seized a chance.
- Andrew Loomis, Creative Illustration

/Studies/ General is all about improving your art and never settling for mediocrity. Every artist is a student, forever and ever. Anybody, from beginner to pro, can post here. Any style is accepted. Critiques are welcome and encouraged. Let's make this a productive thread!

commissions
why
Does anyone know if reddit changed at all recently?
For 4 years I had a good influx of people at least asking for prices and many actual commissions, but in nearly a month I got exactly zero people for the first time.
No DMs, no comments, low upvotes, no engagement.

without reddit i'm pretty much without money, competition on discord commissions servers is brutal with several people working for pennies. and i'm not famous enough to get commissions on other socials.

also general commissions/social media thread i guess since i didn't find it in the catalog

digimon-digimon-tamers
How do I get good at drawing? I'm left handed, have perpetually shaky hands, ADHD, autism and a learning disability. 24.

I've wanted to get good at art since I was a teen but I've lacked the motivations, resources and teachings to get started.

I don't know
>which brush size to use
>optimal size to draw digitally
>good pressure curve to start out with
>how to find a comfortable pressure curve
>how to undo bad habits like drawing stiff figures
>how to fix shitty lines you're too used to drawing
>how to get better when you're experienced but /beg/
I legitimately don't even know how to do sketch lines. My coordination is so fucked thanks to my autism, I can barely even sketch without even the most basic lines fucking up. I can't visually imagine stuff in my head when I'm actually drawing, and my ADHD just wants me to finish as soon as possible. I can barely decide on something as basic as what model to use when trying to sketch a head.

/dtg/ - Drawing Tablet General
$_86
Why you should not trust youtube shills:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VH1WEYF8rlA
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Twy5Wo8m284

Do not read anything into pressure levels. 1024 is more than enough.
If you have any additional questions, ask them.
Remember to ignore all chinese shills.

Recommended tablets:

>Screenless:
Intuos 3, 4, 5, Pro, One by Wacom

>Display:
Small (10-11"): Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite
Medium (12-16"): Samsung Galaxy Tab S8/S9 Ultra, used iPad Pro 12.9"
Large (22"+): Cintiq 22HD, Cintiq Pro 27 - Make sure they have VESA standard mounting holes.

>Avoid:
>XP-Pen, Huion, Gaomon and every other Chinese brand making Wacom imitations
Poor build quality, pens with wavy lines, wobbly nibs, broken tilt, issues registering light pressure, terrible customer support, uncalibrated. All Chinese brands have the same problems. Check out the webm to understand how bad they are.
Do not be fooled by myths like "Chink companies are just as good as Wacom now" - they've been saying this for over 8 years, nothing has changed. Consider reading the amazon reviews, particularly the negative spectrum and you will find some very common themes.
Chinese companies have also been proven to shill on 4chan. You will see dozens upon dozens of posts in this thread by a chinese schizo shill, who will either be bitching about the OP, gaslighting as a Wacom fan, making pointless spam posts or giving terrible advice (like recommending Huion). Just ignore and report him.

>Microsoft Surface Pro
More optimized for palm rejection than good quality drawing. Wobbly lines when drawing slow and straight.

>Cintiq 13-16"
Completely outclassed by the Galaxy Tab Ultra & iPad

>Cintiq Pro 16, 24, 32
Overpriced, QC issues, loud fans, proprietary mount interface

>Lenovo
Worse than Samsung in every way.

I told you I'd make it! My very first comic is done!
Comic
Greetings /ic/, I'm back, as I said I would!

As the title says my very first comic book is done! Almost entirely hand drawn/inked and digitally colored! Almost; because scanning A3s was getting expensive so... I switched to digital after page 34.

>who are you?
I'm Puffer, best known as the anon who made the perspective video (also thanks for the kind messages, I didn't expect that to help so many of you!). I also occasionally post in here, and one of my last posts was about this comic.

>What do you want?
I just want to share my creation. If possible, I'd like to hear what you think about it. Constructive criticism is highly appreciated. Feel free to ask me about it as well.

>Where can I read it?
It's free, I uploaded it on Gumroad:
https://pufferart.gumroad.com/l/COTEBC

Reminder: This is the first comic I ever made, so don't expect the new Dark Knight returns... There are a lot of mistakes that I wish you can point out so I can improve in my next attempt. My goal is to be a professional artist one day, so any advice helps! General feedback would be nice, page layout even more.


-Puffer.

/wmg/ Webtoon Making General - Let's make a webtoon!
isekaicastle
>What's a webtoon?
Webtoon is the ancient Korean art of scrolling comics. Instead of traditional manga/comic pages, panels are spread out individually for easier reading on cell phones.

>So they're just spliced manga/comic pages?
You can do that if you want, but they're fundamentally different for a few reasons. For example, panels tend to be drawn longer to fit phone screens, and traditional 2-page spreads are not possible to fit in scrolling format.

>Are there standard page sizes?
Technically yes, but it depends on which platform you post in. Naver Webtoons uses
800x1280px, but the site automatically splices & resizes images anyway.

>Do I have to make it in color?
If you want subscribers, yes.

>Why would I make one?
To be rich & famous, of course. All jokes aside, the pay is low if you're lucky enough to get hired in the first place, the deadlines are more brutal than the manga industry, and the average reader age floats around 11. But as a novel medium with a growing industry, it may still be worthwhile enough for you to experiment.

Any suggestions for a good beginner tutorial for digital painting, especially in a sort of "concept art" style?
Looking for something that's framed more as "here's how to use painting software, how to get some specific effect, when you'd want to use it, etc.", not as "here's the absolute fundamentals of perspective, color, etc., just figure out the software yourself". Looking to avoid anatomy especially, really only interested in landscape.
Sidenote - is it worth even bothering to try with a mouse, or should I just spring the $100 for a cheap drawing tablet first?

My bad if this board gets questions like this constantly, but I didn't see any sort of rule against it. Thanks

Guy made a bet with his sibling for 1000 dollars that if he didn't teach himself how to draw and get 1k likes on Artstation within 6 months he'd give him the money. He documented his progress pretty thoroughly and it seems he grinded tutorials and books, but I feel like he somehow didn't manage to develop a distinct style despite drawing daily. Is there a reason for this?

sketch v lineart
This shit makes me want to blow my brains out. WHY does this happen? The sketch takes ten minutes, the lineart takes an hour, but it ends up looking like this.

I'm so fucking tired of wasting all this time creating turds. The best things I have ever drawn were done in a short time. The worst things I've ever drawn took me all day.

How do I cope and stay positive in the face of AI?
1708285734274159
I know people are sick to death of this topic, but the AI sora thing has sent me into a spiral. I was hoping to move to 3D to avoid AI for at least a while but now that's gone too.

All I've ever wanted was to work creatively. And now it seems that my dreams are dead. All the work I put into school and my sleepless nights drawing or learning blender seem wasted. I don't know what to do now. My creative ambitions are crushed. I know I sound like a whiny faggot but I genuinely just can't cope. There's nowhere in the creative space that's going to be left.

How are all of you trucking along? I feel like giving up...

Why is it when looking at design for illustration, logo design, typography ect its so easy to find detailed explanations for every little choice the designer made.
But when I comes to character design its so hard to find anything outside of basic fundamentals?

For example I went into a deep rabbit hole of looking at magazine illustrators. There are so many interviews of people like Paul Rand that can explain their process of using a grid why he choose to put certain elements aligned with it, what feelings it invokes in the viewer, how the composition leads the eye ect.

Leaning about type faces the designer explains what the types function is why the exact proportional elements, alignment, sizes were chosen

But if you try and look up anything on character design you get the basic fundamentals of
>Circle means cute triangle means bad ok go make character now

Design is design and it all uses the same principles but there is just something about the way character design is taught that frustrates the fuck out of me. Most of it is pure garbage. I feel like the most insightful lessons are just hearing an artist verbalize what they are thinking while they work. Yet thats so rare to find.

What makes some anatomy distortions appealing and others ugly and uncanny? Why did you choose to render in the material you did and why does changing from ink to oil paint completely change the feeling of a piece? There are even esoteric things ive discovered on my own of just changing the way you grip your pen from a fast slashing line to a slower gestural line drastically changes the mood.

If I can find hours of detailed footage explaining why the Apple logo is genius down to the placement of the fucking bitemark then why is no one making a video on why anime heads are so universally appealing but if you scaled the eyes slightly bigger the design falls apart?

Is this old Jap the only one with balls?
He does not seem to practice the "Honne & Tatemae culture" He just bluntly says what he thinks.

https://www.cbr.com/studio-ghibli-hayao-miyazaki-fantasia-2000-terrible/

>though Alpert concealed Miyazaki's real feelings from the attending Disney brass. "Asked what he thought of the film so far," he said, "Miyazaki replied simply 'hidoi… totemo hidoi' (terrible… really terrible)
>which I translated as 'interesting… Mr. Miyazaki finds the animation unusual and very interesting."

Most of the Japanese view western animation with lots of contempt.
Tatemae culture makes them extremely polite so as not to offend any foreigner. They don't really believe "everything is Anime"
Fantasia 2000, while not as good as the OG, was definitely one of the higher productions of Disney in the late 90's, and Miyazaki called it trash.

How do you think like an artist?
exhibition
Knowledge of how oil paint behaves, rules of perspective, efficient workflow: these are related to the process of execution. The part of the "draftsman". I am interested in the part of the "engineer", as in the artist.

What are some tips for that part? How do you master that (other than thinking ofc)?
