Manga Making General

No.5132895 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
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.

/dtg/ - Drawing Tablet General

No.5137027 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
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.
Intuos Pro M - The best non-display 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


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/. 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.

Alternative Art/Stylization General

Previous >>5103362

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.

Why do so many proffesional artists draw the classic 'eight pack'? It's just flat out anatomically incorrect.

What's the name of this style and how do I replicate it?

No.5136540 ViewReplyOriginalReport
I unironically find it to be realistic yet stylized in a bold and appealing way.

So I've seen a lot of asian artists make their line art blend into the characters in multiple ways, like locking pixels painting over it etc, but is there an ultimate way that is shared in those higher artist groups? Thank you friends

Can someone just tell me why there isn't a physical art board?
[a little history about this thread]
I post this thread once a year, I say the same thing and ask the same things and the consensus always comes down to two arguments:

>why would you do art in physical life when computer art?
>yea there should be a separate board

so this board is for artwork, and the word 'critique' is added because it's going to happen, and it'd be a pointless place without critiquing. The problem isn't going away though, whether complex beautiful digital art takes days to make or not, you can fill a canvas and complete digital work much much much faster, this completely drowns out physical art.

this board kills physical arts like posting sports in the fitness board would have killed genuine questions about fitness.

I like to paint, some like to draw, not with a mouse. trying to explain the preferences here is in essay form. I just want people to admit that believing physical art is dead/dying, or thinking that physical artists don't actually exist isn't even a real argument.
The real reason people are sucked into digital art over physical? lets not skip around and bullshit ourselves, the reason is called CTRL Z.

I like to paint, but a physical arts board would be 80% full of painters and pencil/colour pencil, yet the board could still have:
>sculpting, whittling, burning, spray paint, jewelry, glasswork, acrylic pours, ceramics, embroidery,

I hate this board so fucking much. It's just in the way.

Hello IC!

No.5146462 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Would you be so kind as to give me some pointers and maybe some links to sites that can teach me to render like pic related? I love the style and I want my animations to have this sort of rendering but I can't find good refs for the life of me.
Please note: soft round brush is not an acceptable answer, I know this is a common tool already.
