Posted a few days ago my first attempts at sketching. General feedback was my drawing looked flat and off balance. So here is what ive done since. Proportions are inhuman by design as I thought that would be more fun.

The general thread for Manga / manga-styled comic-making and Manga-style illustration.

Support each other and talk about your work or the work of others that excites you. Inking, character design, paneling / layout, writing, planning, and other discussions are all welcome.

Post resources, questions, in-progress pages, breakdowns of other works, etc. If a work is not yours, credit the maker (unless it's fucking obvious like a full page of One Piece or something).

Thanks to everyone for making /mmg/ a level-headed and helpful place. Remember, drawing and making comics and manga are difficult endeavors, and we're all in this struggle together.

Some western / indie publishers that seem to have a decent readership and are tolerant of or specifically cater to Manga:

Saturday AM ( https://www.saturday-am.com/ )
> Digital indie magazine, seems to be on the up-and-up
> Open submissions for long-form series; also distributes series currently being published elsewhere.
> Regularly publishes one-shots, making it a good potential outlet for already-finished work.

Noir Caesar ( https://www.noircaesar.com/ )
> Focuses on black (specifically African-American) content, but seems willing to publish anyone good enough.
> Seemingly series-based only.
> No "magazine" style updates; series are updated on their own schedule.
> Seems less regular than Saturday AM, but also seems larger in terms of readership.

Oni Press ( https://onipress.com/ )
> Technically indie, but at this point large enough by comic standards to be mentioned in the same breath as other publishers.

Antarctic Press ( https://antarctic-press.myshopify.com/ )
> Longtime large-indie publisher of OEL / manga-esque books.
> Seemingly taking submissions at present if http://www.antarctic-press.com/html/submissions.php is anything to go on.

Yen Press ( https://yenpress.com/ )
> Started out as a small indie publisher of original / Korean material, and has grown reasonably popular since.
> As of 2016, it is also one of the western arms of the Kadokawa Corporation's publishing apparatus, with Kadokawa owning a 51% stake.
> They are known to publish original material, and editorial inquiries can apparently be sent to [email protected]

Viz Media / Viz Originals ( https://www.viz.com/originals )
> *The* western manga publisher.
> Currently in the exploratory stages of setting up an English label.
> Submissions are open and several books have been announced. However, progress on the label seems to be moving very slowly.
> Still might be worth a shot anyway.

These books are cranked out very quickly
The first book was so fucking low quality I could not believe it, like they outsourced half of the 3D models and illustrations to jeets on fiverr
The models they use are repulsive, why not pay $20 more per hour for photo shoots of healthy and beautiful people? Not ugly femoids, sois, 56% and other malformed grebs with terrible posture and no ability to display convincing emotions

Pro tip: Disney figured out all these facial emotions and coding decades ago, and have much better resources. I won’t tell you where to find them

Neuroplasticity worries me
I'm 20 and I'm a collection of conditions, I have to pick something now and stick to it for life, but what if I make the wrong bet? Say, what if you wanted to be an archer but you had no talent, despite trying you'll never be good at it so you waste your life trying, maybe you should have tried marksmanship but then it's too late.
I'm already depersonalized so killing myself is more about getting over the lazyness and not about regretting it. If I fail to justify my existence, just terminate yourself, that's my viewpoint.

I'm 20 now, last year to pick something and stick to it, otherwise I'll be too old.
I'd be wasting more time
If I do nothing I waste time, 2 months of the last year to choose something, 2021.
Yet if I were to draw without improving, they would be gone as well, wasted time.
I can't attempt to draw right now, I break down and suffer because I think I'm not going to improve, I lack confidence, I lack skill and talent.
I just need to know what course or resource to follow so I can develop what I need to improve. Many kind anons have given me resources but which one? What if I make the wrong bet and instead of 6 months they turn into 8 months wasted. Idon't know what to do, I don't know if I can do it, if it's for me, if it will be worth it.

stop chicken scratching and zoom out if it helps you to make more confident lines. Draw from the shoulder/elbow and try experimenting with your grip.
Villpu has the best course for beginners imo. He teaches how to convey forms of the body in space which you clearly cannot do. Proportion is another issue in this drawing; the neck doesn't connect to the head properly and the body looks disfigured in general. Again, Vilppu's course/book is an excellent material for human anatomy. The figure looks like it's floating in space, and don't even get me started on the hands.
Your main issue is probably conveying form and perspective. Try to practice simplifying the body into boxes and ovals and try out gesture studies.

It depends on how much money youll make, I draw furry stuff and also loli and cub, and I can make from 300 to 700 usd a month, is that a lot of money? on america and europe I dont think its a lot, but is still some decent pocket money, where I live is a considerable ammount, I have bought all my tablets, all my HDDs, my cellphone and a long list of porn art with that money so for me its good enough
The biggest thing in furry porn is to have an appealing style it doesnt really matter if you still have wonky anatomy or your rendering is subpar, it will sell but if you have an appealing style it will sell better me personally I only commission people with cute appealing style and have spent a good ammount of money on that

I’ve been reading about this topic today in a book suggested in this thread


Found here:


The way the book talks about this it talks about how the medium you should be drawing from should be the imagination’s representation of our observations rather than “copying”. It seems to be stressing that that is the difference between intelligent drawing and mindless drawing. I don’t know much of Vilpu, so I can’t say for certain if it is his interpretation, but this is one interpretation of the meaning. It’s a cool book. You should really check it out if you are curious.
