In terms of the actual art you see in his comics, he peaked out around the Aogiri arc, got mediocre towards the end of Tokyo Ghoul, and when Tokyo Ghoul :re starts his art just slowly declines into a plateau. Really he's sticking in his comfort zone.

You can see this in all the volume covers, where early on there are full body drawings and some different angles it was drawn from. But then later you see that the covers become more of the same. And it :re it's always some kind of bust shot of a character. Usually a head, and one hand. Or it's just a head. No difficult things like perspective, form or construction here! Just floaty wispy whatever you see, like in OP. The comic of course, follows.

It becomes more polished, but it stiffens up a lot and looses some of its uniqueness to it. If you've read Bleach, it's kind of the same shit. But at least Kubo (bleh) had his own uniquely awful style. Ishida's just looks like your average anime. Doesn't help that most of the impressive stuff later on is work that could easily have been delegated to assistants, like background art or screentone effects. Hell even the really nice looking background art could easily just have been filtered photos of Tokyo.

I have to listen to a cacophony of sounds music that is like a mix between background static and something grating to keep my mind busy, I also just tire myself out first it's never a fight if I just take my meds but I hate doing that and I hate seeing doctors

>> No.3237120

I took meds for years since I was a teen for this condition. I quit them this year and have been building my daily life habits for success without them. I'm of the belief that the condition arises from certain kinds of trauma in childhood. A part of the journey for me has been recognizing that trauma and letting it go little by little by choosing each day to not give up my power by living in the shadow of my painful past. That said, there are daily habits that help me focus on my healing, my art, and my progress. I take a multivitamin and natural supplements to help me overcome the attention deficit issues. I found alpha brain to be very helpful in particular. DMAE has also worked for me. You can do your own research on natural supplements that might work for you. I try to get enough sleep in that I know how many hours I need to dedicate to sleeping and I do so. I dream and the dreams help me fuel my creativity and understand my psyche through looking up dream symbols in online dream dictionaries. I take time out of my day to clean my place up a bit. I make my bed each day, no excuses. Paying active attention to my living environment each day helps me build the brain muscles I need to pay attention to other important daily life things. I remember that cleaning and hygiene is an aspect of self-care. If I ever fall off the proverbial wagon and relapse into a bad habit, I don't waste time getting too caught up in guilt, I get back on the wagon asap by examining it and learning from it. Throughout my day I listen to podcasts which uplift and challenge me to accomplish and be tougher mentally. I like the Adam Carolla podcast(s) in particular the Dr. Drew and Adam Carolla podcast. I have recently made a habit of going to /ic/ instead of escaping by playing video games because it's more fulfilling and very helpful towards my daily life goals. On that note, thank you /ic/.

Rate my art, /ic/

I am a major lurker in all the interwebs, so i lurked a little here and saw you guys don't like fan art very much.

So i tried to start designing things, and the result was that i stopped drawing altogether.

Now i went bak to what i love, fan-arting

But anyways, in each piece i try to improve. This here is my final piece and my first "composition", where i tried to maintain the same kind of detail level than Miura.

Please rate my art, feel free to see my deviantArt to browse my full art story:

>> No.3236503

Software is not a replacement for technical skill.
Good software can streamline the process for a proficient and make it faster, but it will not make you a better artist.

File: 663 KB, 1233x959, Crap.jpg [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]


Fundementals all the way. Software matters depending on what types of jobs you're shooting for. I'm practicing fundies, digital master studies, traditional stuff, sculpting and basic 3D all at the same time. It's fucking exhausting but I'd rather have multiple ways of problem solving when I'm looking for jobs/get an assignment.

I think there are multiple ways of getting good and mine is probably pretty fucking slow. I think that working like this is more fun though. I don't get bored as easily when I can keep switching techniques and after a REALLY long time I'll have a lot of tools at my disposal...

Anyways, programs you can check out if you want to (other than Photoshop and Painter):

- ZBrush (Keyshot optional) < Sculpting
- Fusion360 or MoI3D < Hard surface modeling
- Maya, 3DsMax, Modo, Blender etc. < 3D modeling, rigging/rendering
- Clip Studio Paint < Line art crap/comics
- Daz 3D < Posing stuff (Please don't just over paint them though Shit's awkward)

I don't think it's such a horrible idea to try different techniques/styles as /ic/ often makes it out to be as long as you're always practicing your fundies...

>> No.3236566

In addition to the above, feel free to check out whatever software you're interested in but do NOT ditch ye olde pencil & paper. I'm still trying to make up for years of bad habits that came up from using those programs exclusively thinking I could bypass the fundamentals. But you're most likely going to be using some set of softwares in the future so might as well start now.

It helped me build up line confidence and practice 3D thinking. It really helped me as a basis for life drawing.
The first two lessons are the only essential ones, but also the most boring and draining. Of course there are books that go more in Depth like Robertson's How to Draw, but Draw a Box is easy to understand. The dynamic sketching section is nice, maybe look up Peter Han's course for additional input. The figure drawing section sucks, better sources for that (Loomis, Hampton, Bridgman)

I would also suggest to do more pages than what the site suggest. Practice until you're able to draw near perfect lines and ellipses. Until you can draw boxes from every perspective and know how forms intersect. Think about what you're doing when drawing boxes in space, else those repetitive practices are useless. (Only the line exercises are purely for developing motorical skills)

Also take your time with it. I was going through it over the course of a month, doing 12h a day and got pretty burned out. It still helped. But don't expect to be good ar drawing after DaB, you will just build a tool set that helps you with the next steps in your journey.

Draw a box is just a watered down verison of what they teach in some schools they may label it as viscom (visual communication) or dynamic sketching its all the same concepts but imo gnomon school and peter hans course teaches it the best
