Is there a way to salvage this design? Is it unsalvagable? Or is it just the colors and patterns? What makes a good design?

Try dramatic lighting. Make the whole front of the nun and the faces of the two priests darker/shadowy and put some hard bright edges on the nuns outline of her hood and the shoulders of her gown. Darken her pupils to give a more discernible expression as it looks a bit vacant and unfocused. The blue symbol on the stained glass is off center a bit and the curved lines are wobbly and the random shading on the red and yellow feels distracting and weird, maybe just make it all illuminated. Also try darkening the edges of the scene, the brickwork

You better study real anatomy then simplify it howerver you want.

So many artists these days have no fucking clue how do the legs attach to the torso, what the pelvis is supposed to look like and they have no concept of obliques, literally never heard about the sides muscules, and that makes their character a fucking round barrel with abdomen smoothly transitioning into the back.

Fuckload of such artists on Pixiv, here, and even some printed doujins, artsts learning mistakes from other artists, I blame 5 minute guides and shit like this.

>my 3 artists
I recognize Michelangelo, Sakamichan, and Hitler as the most meta defining artists to influence me. Each individuals art is nothing extraordinary, but their approach to art and consequences of their success (or failure) has molded new generations of artists.

Michelangelo’s success is a product of his story telling. He was the protean artist who established the diva behavior and set the precedent that an artists showmanship is more important than the art they create. For the Sistine chapel, he essentially created a biblical fanart comic that everyone hated because it was too cartoony and stylized, but the real art was in the drama he created about going blind and despising the popes commission which made his work everlasting. From Michelangelo I learned that my stories are more important than the quality of my art.

Sakamichan is another category defining artist. She successfully monetized fan service, but at the cost of her artwork’s soul. The twisted forms of her glossy, airbrushed pinups leave her factory line so fast that she doesn’t even count the fingers. Speed over quality control allows her to operate at an economy of scale to earn millions a year. Her biggest contribution to artists is the army of clones that she trains preying on their greed - mercenaries drawing for money. From Sakamichan I learned that capturing the economy of art is more important than the quality of my art.

Finally, Hitler has the most important influence on artists. It is his failure to make it as an artist that drives artists forward through fear. His failure is why I want to cultivate new artists and inspire others to continue creating because I fear what people will pursue without their art. From Hitler, I learned that acceptance is more important than the quality of my art.

My motivations for attending art school do not come from improving the quality of my art. I want to be surround by other artists and learn how they want to change the art meta.

What makes it obvious when an anime/manga illustration was created by a westerner?
I'd like to ignore coloring and shading for now.

My art teacher (western herself) said it's all in the lineart. I don't quite understand though.
Is the feature placement better? Does asian manga/anime make the volume of a body look more feasible?

It's definitely the anime style deviation as it filters people with such efficiency people rarely stick around to ever read their stories (which are ironically enough are almost always faithful rip off of past series). Too many western are just indoctrinated with needing their own style that it never looks authentic regardless of how skills they are, pic related is a great example is this.

Start drawing and after enough time you'll end up with your own style too... Even in sub genre like shoujo

I’m not depressed, I’m just too lazy to do my other hobbies. I keep drawing because I feel like I have momentum. New hobbies will have such a steep learning curve, and I’ll lose time drawing.

It’s a guilty pleasure. It’s a drug. It’s my vice. I’m addicted and ashamed. My family and friends ask me what I do all day, and I tell them I am drawing. They always ask to see my drawings, but I don’t show them because I draw anime tiddies and I’m a grown man.

I have a secret life. I feel like a degenerate. I’m on /ic/ for 12hrs a day fishing for (You)s with fresh drawings. I’m interacting with pedos and anons who are half my age. Drawing is a cruel mistress that brings bad company.

I wake up in the morning, craving the day’s drawing session. I need my dose of drugs. I can’t draw on the weekends because I have social obligations. I get bad drawing withdrawal. I get antsy and grumpy, I talk about drawing with friends, but quickly change the subject when they ask to see my work. The lust grows, and by Monday I have so much pent up frustration I have to binge draw a bunch of boobs and butts to quench the thirst.

I sneak away any chance I get to put pen on paper. I ask people when they will be busy, so I can get alone time with my mistress. A quick study, just for 10minutes, but it turns into 4hrs of gritty sketching, strewn pens, paper, ink, and erasure shavings. 40 tabs are open with references. My camera roll is filled with WIP photos taken at rakish angles with the tools framed in sexy poses.

My life has lost all purpose except to feed the hunger for drawing. I guess that makes me depressed.

Why You Should Copy Anime:

**Strive for quantity AND quality.**

Anime Studying:
>Copy anime references exactly and draw them from memory. Use illustrations, screenshots, anime figures, 3D models, etc.
>Don’t copy recklessly. Use construction, color theory, and other fundamental concepts to rehearse a drawing process that you can later easily manipulate for original artwork.
>Post all of your anime studies. Post even when you’re told not to. Create an art community that actually draws and improves together instead of just talking about it.
>Number your attempts and link to your previous posts.
>Critiquers should lead by example by posting their studies.

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.

**Draw copies from good anime styled references to mindfully up our mileage, internalize appealing aesthetics, and learn from each other’s processes and knowledge.**
