Bootleg Alternative Art/Stylization General

no one was making a new one so...

Previous thread: >>3791291

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.

You can't do digital painting without also doing traditional says Proko's video.


Personally, I'm not going to waste time and money on oils or watercolors just so I can use my wacom tablet. You can do digital without traditional just fine.

P.d Yes I know that guy isn't Proko. But it's his channel.

/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.**

Looking for an inker for tomorrow to ink some comic pages for me. They are a little rough and loose but they’re pretty simple, not very many backgrounds.
I mostly just need someone to trace over my sketches in a photoshop file.
If interested please email me at [email protected] or reply in the thread with your contact info.
Pay rate is 10 USD per page. Sorry it’s all I got, and like I said they’re pretty simple, plus I might ask you to leave some stuff out that I need to redraw. Maximum amount would be 15 pages, probably at least 8 pages that I need right now.

Very quick turn around time, I basically need you to email me them page by page. My deadline is Monday morning, but I need them a little sooner.

character design attempt
Are there any resources out there that explain the logic of character design? I'm not looking for an entire course so much as just a list of fundamental concepts to keep in mind while designing a character. Or a logical order of how to think when designing said character; a process or even just a book to reference.

I'm a total beginner. Here I have my most recent attempt. She's supposed to be a slutty monk warrior widow. I'm not really happy with the design in the end because the silhouette is bland and i feel like she just lacks personality overall.

Loomis... I'm sorry. You were right.

At first I didn't like loomis much, because I honestly had a hard time understanding him. Yes I'm a brainlet in art so sue me.

But everywhere I looked for info to learn few could match Loomis(vilppu, robertson and hampton).

It was either a scam, or overpriced garbage, a waste of money and time. Or the few goods ones like watts atelier were just reselling loomis.

Even those like Proko that "explain" loomis just overcomplicate the hell out of his teachins. Ex compare his manequin vs Proko.

What opened my eyes was how indeed the japanese are just using your stuff and adapting it to anime.

Krens Cushart, in particular, opened my eyes. he heavily references Loomis in his lessons.

I'm going to study Loomis more seriously. Loomis you were always there giving the answers for free... and I didn't listen.

But from now on I will.

You Gotta Sleep Well

You only get better when you're sleeping, so sleep well.

>A growing literature in recent years argues that sleep plays a crucial role in learning and memory consolidation (for reviews, see Smith 1995; Stickgold et al. 2001; Walker 2004). Perhaps the most consistent evidence has been for sleep's role in the development of procedural skill memory.

Practice well and then sleep. Consistency is extremely important, since you sleep everyday. It's better to practice 1 hour everyday for a week than to practice 7 hours one day of the week. Grind your fundies to the point of diminishing returns in terms of focus and energy and then sleep. Repeat it again the next day. Don't burn out. CONSISTENCY and SLEEP are EXTREMELY important.

Tangential to /ic/ but still counts, right?

Sometimes an artist I follow says something and I leave a brief comment or relevant joke but in most cases they don't even answer. On top of that I feel like I'm being unprofessional just by doing this kind of stuff and I feel bad about it. Should I just not bother with conversation? I always reply to my followers and leave those tweets alone when I prune.

TRY TO GIVE PEOPLE SOME FEEDBACK - many studies are left unreplied, which is a bit sad and can be quite demotivating for the people that try their best to improve, but are left directionless.

REMEMBER, if you've just started out you work will not be good, it doesn't need to be, just get in to the swing of actually drawing, and learning how to study. Most of all, enjoy it.

Science/technology glorification Fine Art

Tree of Life - Alexander Mikhailovich Belashov 1984
I thought it would be easy to google stuff like this (akin to religious art) on Science or Technology, but it's been a lot harder than I expected.

Do you guys know of any art gallery on the subject? Oil Paintings and murals would be appreciated.

Artist documentaries/interviews? Any type of art is welcomed.

Just saw this one about the mangaka Shinichi Sakamoto.

I feel like whenever I hear the story and passion of another artist, it just awakens an extra bit of motivation in me.

I can do pretty good pixel art, and I can make music at a relatively professional-level quality, yet the creations I’m most proud of are my pencil drawings which are comparatively shite. I don’t understand why. Is there a name for this kind of thing?

Bonus points if they're succesful artist that can' teach shit.

>1.-Aron Blaise's how to draw human body
(Worse than Da tier). Glorified watch me draw "course". To be fair he has some good stuff in other topics.
>Pencil kings
*Their best teacher is sycra. And he just repeats his youtube material. Yes it's that sad.

I'm wondering what could we do to know if someone's an /ic/ user on real life. Like could we share a password or a specific question if we suspect if someone is a Loomis acolyte too? It has to be somethng discrete tho so alarms don't get raised and we can save face if the person doesn't know this place. Something like:
>question: Do you like to listen to Jazza?
>password (if you browse /ic/): Nah, I feel pretty Gloomis listening to it.

You get the idea

How hard is it to get good enough to draw like this?
1 images | 7 replies


I'm like maybe 10 hours into drawing. I'm currently starting out with this "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" workbook that gives me a bunch of exercises to do. Right now, I'm on drawing in negative space of a sports photo.

However, my endgame is that I just want to draw anime cuties. Can I take a break from this book and go study Loomis or Vluppi or should I really finish this book to get the fundies down?

The Artschool redpill.

>Only very few art schools are worth the money it in the sense they actually teach you how to draw and paint. Watts atelier, and calarts for example. Your art school is most likely shit, specially if it isn't in a first world country.

>Most art schools will just teach you useless shit like philosophy or feelings, when you just want to draw something cool. They will even glorify some modern art bullshit because "muh expression".

>A lot of people graduate from art school and aren't even /begs level. I've seen it myself, and yes, it's as sad as it sounds. It gets worse. You will be thousands of dollars in debts.

>Meanwhile a kid that draws anime for fun will draw 10 times better than you, and ironically he will have more money than you.

>And that's because you can learn most of art cheaper and free online.

>If you pay watts atelier online or NMA AND you pay extra for critiques by their professionals, you will be learning more than you will save money.

>Unlike other carers like medicine, Employers don't give a shit about your diploma. They will just see your portfolio and if you suck, you're fucked. They will even hire a self taught guy over you.

>Any loser can create a masterpiece if given a lifetime to do so. In this world what makes you truly good is how fast you can produce good results.
So what's the ideal time I should be spending on a drawing? How much does it take you? I'm guessing 2 to 6 hours is ideal and you could do more than one drawing that day depending on how complex it is. But spending days on a piece makes me feel incompetent.
