this has been propably discussed multiple times. But what is the best Art forum these days, or community. Where you can maintain example a sketchbook get feedback, discuss, make art friends etc. Everything feels so temporal.

Western art disgusts me. Some no talent hack can draw a pastel SJW fatass and get praised while japs actually work hard and be highly talented but just end up “mediocre” in their circles. I want that kind of drive! That kind of motivation! But I’ll never be any good. Not even like the sjw hacks. Well, what am I doing complaining? I know my only path is to become a regular old western artist but it sucks because it’ll never be esteemed as great as manga in my mind.

China. A “gook.” A discount jap/ Korean. We make fun of things made in China because “they’re cheap and low quality.” Even their mangas suck and never leave the country. I’m born in the US but I’ll never be an authentic Jap. And 4chan likes to make fun of Chinese as if “oh you have an Asian gf? She doesn’t count if she’s chinese, because she’s the gf you get when you can’t snag a jap or a Korean.” Ahhhh!! Even being white would’ve been better! Then I could fit in with other whites! And all the watchpeopledie is either from China or Russia. Everything is low quality! Even this bait!

In short it's all about methods. There's no "best" method out there and never will be. You can read up on sight-size, the Reilly method, the Loomis method, Bridgman, etc. The point isn't to use all of them because no artist does that. It's to find the method that works for you. If someone says Loomis and Watts is similar that's because Reilly and Loomis were both taught by Bridgman who was taught by Gerome. Hell even Gerome has a book and his own approach so there you go.

Different anon here. Fun fact - Hampton was Karl's student, and ripped off almost everything Karl taught, including the language and concepts he uses in the Figure Drawing for design and invention book. Especially the head portion.

And of course Karl was Vilppu's student, but the way they teach the head has differences, at least.

If that's yours, learn to draw first. Follow some books or courses and it'll give you stuff to draw.

But if you want drawing prompts, get ideas from games/movies you've enjoyed recently, nature/animal documentaries, I mean it really depends on what you enjoy drawing.

Keep a a collection of art and artists that you find inspiring or just enjoying in general. Whenever you have artist block, browse through it to get ideas, or just do a study on one to practice your art skills.

>> No.3812065

I pick something to study that I don't feel confident in. For me, ears and hands. I think this is the most satisfying thing.

Or I pick something I enjoy but have never drawn or haven't attempted since childhood - a dinosaur, a Pokemon, favorite sci-fi character. Sometimes I go to request threads and pick up something.

Another option is to pick old art and try to redraw it.

If you don't feel like drawing something concrete, even doing mechanical exercises where you practice drawing different lines and shapes can be soothing and helps coordination.

One thing I avoid doing is going on social media and asking normie friends for drawing prompts bc it's always some faggot trying to get you to draw a shitty tattoo for them. Or some chick wanting something corny Live Laugh Love shit but with a sugar skull.

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.

>> No.3811725

Makes sense.

>> No.3811739

There's no one answer here, you're kind of overthinking it, and approaching it from the wrong angle.

Character design is creative. It's not plug and play - that kind of mechanical creation is what the TV and movie try to churn out, and why so much of their output sucks.

Creating characters is an artform all in itself. There's no way to really teach it, you either have the ideas, and learn to polish them by having an audience to get feedback from, or you don't. I guess you could ask in writing forums about it, but they'll probably tell you the same things.

Your example here is a good place to start.

The only defining features you've invested in her is:

Despite the whole sloot/monk thing being incompatible, ask yourself: why is this character interesting? What's her backstory? Why does she dress a certain way, past "boobies"? What is her story? How has her story influenced her? Why should we, the audience care, if we're expected to look past the porn aspects of boobs? Or is that simply why she exists?

Good characters are good because of multiple aspects - their story, their place in it, their personality, and their actions.

All you're offering up here is a slooty 2D waifu. It's not really a character, because she has no reason to exist.

Work on characters in the context of a story, if you want to drill down into actual character. Otherwise, this is nothing more than waifu material - nothing wrong with that, but it's a different intent.

>> No.3811757

>Otherwise, this is nothing more than waifu material - nothing wrong with that, but it's a different intent.
and definitely this.

Slutty monk can work in a nsfw setup. But the question is, is that what op wants to go for?

Is she that much of a tease that she just can't help being slutty despite of being a monk and a widow?
It depends on what kind of public you're aiming for, again. Some people won't take that seriously, while others might be intrigued by it.

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.

Using right #s help. Some people really love searching their favorite #s.

Another hot tip for getting traffic, is to make fan-art of a game and @ it at devs/pubs/localization teams. Some of them occasionally retweet even the most /beg/ tier art. Indie studios are a prime target, localization teams such as XSEED is another.

Obviously, making fan-art for shit you don't give a fuck about isn't always fun, but I mean.. admit it, you fucking love it when you get notifications, you little slut.
