/asg/ - Anime Study General

**If you make good copies of anime *properly*, you will be able to draw good anime. If you make bad copies of anime or bad anime styled drawings from photos, you will get better at drawing bad anime. Please think carefully about how you are studying.**

This is the thread for:

1. Posting your anime studies:
>Copy exactly but don’t do it aimlessly. Integrate drawing concepts (construction, color theory, tracing, etc.) into your studies in order to pull information from the reference (anime art, figurines, tutorials) that you can later use for your original work.
>Do a single study multiple times to ensure you address all of your mistakes and memorize the correct process in your head. Attempt drawing it from memory as well.
>You will only be able to effectively deviate from your reference after doing exact copy studies accurately and consistently.
2. 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 references to mindfully up our mileage, internalize appealing aesthetics, and learn from each other’s processes and knowledge.**

what is your drawing from life to from imagination ratio ?
do even draw from life ?
do you copy from life, or do you "analyze" the model ?

>Receive my 30€ brush order consisting of two synthetic Kolinsky Escoda travel brushes
>They are covered in adhesives which I remove, leaving a sticky residue on the brush handle and this is very annoying but I'll rub it off with oil.
>Japanese stationery comes in adhesives that don't leave a residue, why does non-Japanese shit always have sticky residues you have to spend 5 minutes rubbing off with oil.
>Whatever, I take the brushes to the bathroom and carefully wash them with mildly warm water and soap to remove the glue
>Flick the wet brushes and check the sharpness
>They are completely frayed and misaligned and have no shape or point at all
>Swear under my breath for the next 10 minutes while rubbing off the adhesive
Never buy Escoda. Fucking shit company making shit brushes. Brushes these expensive shouldn't be made like this. And fuck reviewers, I swear these people don't fucking paint, they just get a brush in the mail and look at it while it's still glued and imagine it's pretty or they stick it in their ass and decide it deserves 5 stars. What's the fucking criteria for giving 5 stars to a brush that doesn't have anything resembling a point? That it looks somewhat like a brush? That if you dip it into paint the paint doesn't fall off? These brushes have excellent reviews and I thought the price was indicative of quality, the fibers are nice I guess but the workmanship is garbage. It's fucking 1$ chink brush tier garbage. I have another order with a bunch of #2s for inking and I bet that one's gonna be a fucking waste of money too.
The cheap Winsor & Newton cotman brushes are better than this.
