How do these cartoonists get this nice style of line work?
It looks really loose yet still expressive and readable.
You can also tell they know at least some anatomy even with it being so cartoony also.
Thanks Anon, I guess I need to practice drawing long strokes
Allah blesses them.
Those hands are horrible, but I guess as long as you get the face with a funny expression is ok
If it’s traditional they probably drew it on a surface at least 75% bigger than what you’re thinking they drew it on. That actually does make a difference for line quality.

>try to draw the character from the show as closely as possible in a pose of your choice
>extra point for attempting to replicate the show's colors, shading color grading, line style ...
>extra points for adding a BG and making it look like a real finished frame
Remember to be loose and confident. The easiest way to fall short of the anime look is to be too stiff. Try to understand why something is drawn the way it is, don't just copy the lines mindlessly. Think as if you are on a production and you have to get it as close as possible to the style. Keep at it till you are there.
If you are struggling try to draw the character in your own style, or try to draw your own character in the shows style, separating the design from the style and vice-versa will help you get a better grasp of it.
>If you are really set on getting the anime look you can draw it aliased and smooth it in post.
>If you make several attempts put numbers or timestamps on them as you go.
>If the thread picks up we can have a collage of /ic/ drawing anime
That is all, remember to be nice and to enjoy drawing.
You should be looking for ??? because it has the compositional stuff like ??+?????.
That guy is just a smartass pretending to know shit.
settei/gengashuu wil give you this kind of anime production artwork
why do even care? fuck off
>>5457229 >>5457255 >use unnecessary loanword >others are "pretending to know shit"
Bet you love to read French bande dessinée and Italian fumetti.
Worse than the schizo at skill levels.
Anyways don't meme me, I need only a direction, nobody wants to help me.
Please I /beg/ you.
I can't understand anatomy.
I have problems making the eyes.
I don't understand how to control line quality.
(Thickness of lines)
Don't understand light and shadow, even though I have read and watched tutorials on it.
(My paintings look like what a toddler would make)
I've read the sticky.
Done Loomis, Proko, ctrl paint, Keys to drawing, perspective made easy, Hampton's figure drawing and practiced it.
But I don't get it, I know I have to think in 3d and feel the form, but whenever I have to sketch, my mind blocks itself and can't do jack shit.
I know I have to think in volumes, simple shapes, but it just doesn't come naturally in my drawings, either from realism or anime.
And I have serious problems on making anime eyes (and also realistic eyes, they always look off)
I'm 40 years old btw.
So help me, and maybe, you know, I don't know.....
I won't come here again, but please help me I am so lost.
>drawing digital before mastering traditional ngmi
Sounds to me like you just don't know how to study. Going through a ton of material doesn't mean you're learning it. You need to do more than just show up to class. Everyone learns differently, so there's no stock answer to the right way of studying. You have to figure out how you absorb information best, then tailor the material to suit yourself. Dont expect others to just teach you with no effort on your behalf. Learning doesn't work that way. Not for art, or for anything else.
try finishing a drawing.
Gesture drawing doesn't mean you draw final lineart without sketching, you imbecile. Just sketch, or is your ego too big for that? Need to be better than everyone else?
is this living doll fetish?
Why do all the fucking female artists I know talk about pussy stuff?
I don't intend to be sexist but because all the fucking female artists I know talk about the fucking rule or their experiences with their little pussies. It is as if a man talks on his social networks about when he jerks. IT IS NOT ORIGINAL BESIDES HORRING THEIR FUCKING DRAWINGS and even so there are artists much better than them and even so they gain more followers for talking about feminism and why their cunt smells like shit
same reason all jokes by female comedians are about vaginas, all books by female authors are about vaginas, etc.
>>5458763 >Having a pussy is the funniest shit in the world apparently.
Wrong, cocks are 100s of times funnier
why does every guy online get into literal dick measuring contests? cant watch a porn without spotting in the comments someone saying 'fuck hes tiny, she must be so disappointed. she should fuck me instead.'
This girl I liked who I stalk online who was willing to suck my dick if I wasn’t so retarded has this shit saved under her Pinterest for art, yes, this is the “art” that women like
Fuck you faggot, quit stealing my meme reaction images, I know you’re the same guy as the other thread
Well, it looks like you fancy a tard, my man.
You can go both ways in digital art
Whatever fits your preference
any tuts on rendering latex?
I hate talented people so much I want to give up on drawing.
What do I do?
that's some deep shit.
Anon nobody enjoys crashing their cars and not learn driving the fucking car.
perfect example of your bad mentality. "give scientific evidences to your claims?" get off your ass and find them on your own.
if you keep thinking that there's no point in doing that / i must be lying if i'm not spoonfeeding you examples / i cannot improve, you are never going to solve your issues.
>>5448282 >I hate talented people so much I want to give up on drawing.
unironically get off /ic/. If you hadn't noticed, this board can be fun, but it's also toxic and full of bitter people. Draw things you like, have fun, stop trying to compete.
>>5458909 >stop trying to compete.
Nobody is trying to compete, we simply don't want to draw like chris chan or a toddler.
Lately I've been seeing a lot of "muh asian jeans" posts and I've been thinking what if its cultural?
Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese and Koreans are conditioned from early adolescence that you must work until you succeed and sleeping may have to be sacrificed leading to many teenagers and adults sleeping 4 to 6 hours a night on average.
Is that how these guys can pump out so much work and improve so fast? They literally just don't sleep?
I was watching a video of a Chinese art instructor and he was saying how he recommends students sleep more on days where its very theory heavy to ensure they retain the info better and on less heavy days to get the work done to the highest quality possible even if that means multiple all nighters
Is that action button reviews?
>>5448781 >someone who works 12 hour days with an hour commute each way
Your only salvation is death
If the asian jeans meme was true, there'd be countless artists better than the old masters, but there aren't. Remember there's like 2 Billion Asians, yet the old masters are objectively more skilled.
As for your point: Sleep is crucial for learning. If you want to gid gud you'll have to sleep well.
>>5449680 >Chris chan
What a retarded fool
Types like a german
It will become illegal to draw coomart. Your federally mandated castration drugs will stifle any desire to. It's the next step of our evolution and ascension beyond our primitive animal ancestors. We artists will advance exponentially without the distraction of coomart. It will be good. So stop drawing coom.
I still don't understand why'd you nuke your account. Though I kinda knew you'd do that anyway because the @handle is so common it looked throwaway. I don't think you have any desire of building any kind of audience nor do I think you have some kind of aim with art. In fact since I've known you every 99 names you go under were throwaway. Maybe it's just a hobby to stick images on your moms fridge if she knows you're a pedophile and enjoys that kind of thing.
I'm saying this because I felt bad about myself thinking you did that because of me when it's just your regular purge routine, all while making it look like it was my fault for (lol?) giving you attention/affection. Well whatever...you're just another drop of /ic/ assholes I've come across the 9 years I've been resident here.
I'm getting pretty tired of teachers who don't even realise they're employing more advanced techniques than they describe in their explanation. Figure and gesture courses in particular are rife with that, they'll give a simple explanation and then proceed to entirely disregard what technique they're talking about and do it their comfortable developed way anyway.
>someone asks me if I do commissions >I've just finished a big project for a client and I wanted to take a break before going back to college, but for some reason, I decide to take his commissions >he asks how much I charge for a drawing >I answer his question and he says that I charge too much >I decide to charge him the same amount other artists have charged him before (less than half of what I originally asked for) >he asks me to help him to define his ideas >we end up with a couple of very complex drawings >for some reason, he decides to start a conversation with me >since I'm a dirty third worlder who still struggle with English, it takes me hours to reply his long emails about stuff I don’t care about >he has plans for more drawings This is all my fault. He's a pretty chill guy, though.
>>5459000 >another person ask me if I do commissions >since I'm a retard, I ask him what he has in mind >he says we should talk on discord >I don't like to chat in English, but I accept >he tell me that he would love to see a comic based on some drawings I did some time ago >I'm not interested in making that comic, but I tell him that I'll think about it >he even shares his ideas for the cover of the comic with me >our conversation is weird; I have no idea what his intentions are >at some point, he commissions me that cover and intermediately sends me the money >he pays well, so I decided to draw his idea >he loves the drawing and wants me to upload it to my accounts and ask people if they would like to read that comic >I realize I really don't want to make a comic based on his ideas; I got better things to do with my time >I mean, will he even pay me for that comic or what? >I'm tempted to return the money and tell him that I'm not interested
Once again, this is all my fault.
You have no sharp edges in your picture. Or not enough variation in edges in general.
Your color temperatures are most likely wrong. But if you're struggling with colors you should probably work on values and saturation first.
what books should i go through to make it, /ic/?
why are you upset? are you a tranny?
that's all you can sa-aayyy~
Found this a couple years ago, but don't know how accurate it is
Oh look at the tranny seething,
So fucking pathetic.
Ok I’ve been thinking about this thread for a few days and it’s gonna sound like bad advice (and probably is) but there isn’t an artists canon that will make you great. You learn by picking up techniques and staying reachable, open to critique, and curious. When I was twelve, my aunt sent me the copies of Bridgman my grandfather used (a moderately well known Canadian painter) and I never used them because I felt I was too good for it. Twenty five years later it dawned on me that my art wasn’t great and it’s all because I didn’t learn anything. I started doing studies from Bridgman and to this day I use his techniques for gesture. I don’t give a damn about learning animation but I picked up a lot of useful concepts from the Animators Survival Guide. Most of the things I learned though were picked up from observing art I liked, imitating techniques I see people using, watching livestreams (that’s how I discovered the navigator in Photoshop), watching videos on YouTube, and even taking the shit people on this board say seriously. The piece that got me a Daily Deviation on dA was something I did after hearing the phrase “values composition” on this board. The key is to be inquisitive and teachable and gobble up information and be eager to put it to use.
I've been watching Ethan Becker videos but he says I should never draw with an oval. Then he said I should never draw with a box. What do I do now? Everything I've learned up to this point seems worthless.
You are not fooling anyone, kill yourself.
I like your sense of humor.
>>5457672 >I've been watching Ethan Becker videos
idk, when i met him he told me that i should never draw. after that my art has significantly improved
Ive only seen improvements after watching eathan becker. I think he applied the same tools and strategy when he worked on voltron.
