Hey BO, are you the one that made the /loomis/ on 8moe?
If anyone wants a comfy to post art, gains, and discuss development and more, here's a place to post; https://matrix.to/#/!sjMcOGrPkRfWXFaSmb:matrix.org
>>906 Sadly, no, I'm just a rando bloke But I'd like to cooperate if he's up to it
>>945 I linked your board on mine just for the record bb, I'm also responding to users here when I can and trying to keep that Drawpile thread current. Keep the spirit alive. The .css on .moe got borked this morning so, admittedly I have to say this board is looking quite fancy today if I do say so myself.
>>941 Why not here?

>>64 Yes. The regular thumbnail size is 200x200. You might want to make it something like 150x150.
>>65 Changed size again, tell me how it feels
>>89 It's the same size as regular thumbnails now but most spoiler images on boards are distinctly smaller than the max thumbnail size. They're usually 128px but I think it makes the lines on image a little too small so I like 150px. Posting multiple spoiled images to see what it's like.

I saved these two examples a while back on drawing grass. Are there any other examples on how to ink foliage out there? It seems like resources on natural things like trees and rocks are kind of scarce.
>>654 This video seems like it'd be of help to you
>>656 I'm aware of this video, sorry I should have clarified. I only work traditionally, so i'm looking for relevant methods.
>>549 Do you happen to know any books that are similar to McCloud's but it emphasizes on manga?
>>854 I wouldn't call it similar to McCloud in a technical sense, but I would consider Araki's book "Manga in Theory and Practice" obligatory reading, and it digs deep into the elements needed for comics. I think as far as the technical aspect is concerned, there's not a whole lot. This book is very dated, but it goes over a lot of technical basics. The problem I have with these books is that there are some things and techniques that aren't touched upon (like the Nodo zone, Mekuri and Hiki) https://archive.org/details/HDMVol.30PenToneTechniques/mode/2up I would not really recommend the older how to draw series books, they're extremely dated and mostly focus on trying to teach you to draw (badly) and you should already have basic grasps of how to draw or you will struggle. If you're not sure about composing pages, you will not likely find much information about that beyond basic overviews of how to do sequential art (like is discussed in McCloud's book) Read manga and take notes from artists you enjoy. Most everyone has different styles of page composition. Learning how to do this is a lot of practice.

working on proportion, drawing smaller versions of models like krautanon suggested
More proportion practice, >>927 was full-size images drawn at a smaller scale, this was a smaller image drawn at a full-size scale. To make sure everything fit on the paper I drew marker lines at the top where her right foot is and the bottom where her left foot is, then did the same on the sides for her hand and thighs. Then I drew markers at each joint and measured/compared them with each other to make sure everything would fit and was the right size. I think it turned out pretty well. also it is all on the paper, my scanner is just too small for the full size of the paper.
>>928 That is a ridiculous pose but I can see you tried really hard. Keep it up. Keep an eye out for landmarks you can use to your advantage, like see how her TIT is well above the top of her knee long the x axis in the reference or how her lower elbow is a little over a third of the way into her lower leg by that same standard. This is a really good attempt, actually, but you flubbed it here and there as just about anyone could.
>>933 yeah i can see i shortened her left leg and that threw everything else off. sometimes you don't see things like that until the day after
decided to try drawing digital this time. it's fucky in a lot of ways, since you can't really feel on a slab of plastic what you're drawing compared to actual paper. i can also see my major fuckups in pics related, most of which stem from the head being too small (something I constantly struggle with, I make the head one size but the rest of the drawing is too large and throws it out of proportion). need to slow down and constantly check to make sure everything is lining up correctly.

Oh, damn an art board. I'll keep a look at this. Although my main stay is over at http://nanochanqzaytwlydykbg5nxkgyjxk3zsrctxuoxdmbx5jbh2ydyprid.onion/oc/ If you post on nanochan, you'll get an overpaint, if I see that you've put effort into the painting or drawing. Otherwise use this thread for for the clearnet normies. Do you want to know how to do anything specific in Krita? New to animation? New to painting? If you're using Photoshop or Corel Painter, you're a cuck and not allowed in this thread. Ok, let's see if this semi advertisement gets deleted.

Questions that don't deserve their own thread - Sketches Edition. Do you usually refine the figure (face, accessories, hair, drapes) when sketching or its easier to just putting a landmark then refine it later in lineart?

how do I know that I'm good enough to start drawing completely from memory with little/no references at all?
What does it mean if you constantly forget what your own characters look like? It's not like my designs are overly complicated.
>>930 You'll know because you'll be able to draw completely from memory with little/no reference at all, of course! >>931 It means you need to draw them more probably. Visit the drawpile in the sticky once in a while!

Let's say I want to make several different versions of the same drawing, each one with a character of a different race. How many version should I make? At first, I thought four versions (White, Black, Asian and Mestizo) would be enough, but I'm not so sure now. To be honest, I don't know much about this whole thing and I'm afraid some people will give me shit for this.
Advice for setting up a Patreon/Subscribestar account? I remember that post about being a trendchaser to the max but surely there are other ways to get noticed than that?

>>576 I actually had to look up what "throd" is supposed to mean. Looks like it's an insult. Would you mind elaborating on how that's meant? If not, then that's alright as well. uwu
Always liked to draw as a kid. As i grew up i developed a dream/ambition to become a great artist, but later my motivation devolved to just wanting to impress some chick that frequented the same drawing studio, in the end my superior drawing skills didn't help me woo her, because i was a coward at heart, but i did get a love letter from some other chick that i didn't care about. Eventually my romantic interest moved to another country, i quit art and started wasting my time on imageboards, and doing drugs. After a wasted decade i got bored from being a degenerate and became a somewhat productive normie, now all that's left from my artistic past is this bump on my middle finger from holding the pencil.

I personally always used to doodle on the border of the notebook and always wanted to get into an arts career, but knowing that I would end up with no job with that I decided to get into STEM. I ended up going nowhere for four years and this quarantine finally made me get into it. Now the issue will be not throwing the towel.
Wanting to get a hobby, although I dont spend too much time since I prefer writing for the moment. And also wanting to learn the ability to draw anime
