Why can't American comics artists properly design women faces?

No.4445344 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Seriously, barring some exceptions like Art Addams, Warren, the Scott Pilgrim author or other stylized simplistic indie comics, a good majority of american comics artists in general seems to draw female characters as man-jawed with hard marked black lines for cheekbones with gigantic lips and ugly thick lipstick. Other alternatives don't much better either, since that "cartoony" style that have J. Scott Campbell or Amanda Conner just look ridiculous and rather hideous to me, even Frank Cho is pretty meh to me for the same reason. Compared to the Japanese ones who mastered the art of designing cute and appealing girls to both male and female audiences or the realistic, more down to heart but still idealized according to universal beauty canons approach the Europeans follow in their comics like pic related.

Not to mention that american cartoons aren't looking much better either with the Calarts style invasione they had this decade. With the exception of classic Disney films, pre-2000 cartoons and some videogames, american art styles just clash with my sensibilità.

What are some good resources in studying character design? Any books or video courses that have helped you anons? I am probably biased towards more stuff that is used in video games however, as a note.

Alternative Art / Stylization General

No.4447289 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Previous >>4437159


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.
