I noticed that in many cases anime style is simple gesture without details or derivative of simplification.
For example dark outlines of "anime eyes" is actually simplification of eyelashes drawn not in detail but as simple form.
I learned it after trying proko tutorial on eyes and ending up with "anime eyes" after failing at eyelashes.

>> No.3547124

Oh and large form of anime eyes drawn in straight lines is derivative of classical drawing where you learn to draw stuff with straight lines to better capture the for.
Its just less detailed than full blown realism.

The problem is there is no distinct "anime" style, you have a wide range from Namori's super moe style, to Murata's much more realistic and detailed style, to the other Murata's alien faced lolis, to classic anime style that had much harder edges.

You can't say "anime" style because it makes no sense, a lot of the western styles are more "anime" than some of the actual anime. Disney is anime as fuck for example.

Because you don't "use simplified anatomy". (YOU) simplify said anatomy, from what you already know.
Of course, some might go to the extremes and suggest you need to be a first rate artist to even think about drawing anime chicks.
I say you just need to be a good one, not exactly the top 1%. >>3547098 For example you don't need to be able to do that masterful lightning and shadowing, nor the skeleton. But being able to do a decent body that decently approaches that level of anatomy and being able to change its pose makes you good to go.

I doubt any of the hentai artists that make me orgasm so much per day know how to draw a goddamn skeleton. Or maybe they do, but it doesn't show.

Without a good grasp on anatomy, your drawings are simply incapable of being appealing and will look like they were made by a kid like pic related

>> No.3547544

Upon closer inspection, that's a bad image I used. I think the author does know about anatomy, the proportions are right and judging on the head/necks I can infer they did construct a base model first.

It's just that they plain coloring and lack of any details is shit. But they look human enough.

>> No.3547546

Aren't you tacitly implying in this post that Jap artists that draw hot doujinshi porn don't have a solid anatomical foundation oftentimes, yet still draw appealing art?

Aren't you refuting your own argument?Obviously it helps to study human anatomy but if we're discussing what is absolutely necessary to draw appealing anime, there's clearly a "fast and dirty" way to learn that doesn't involve traditional study or bargue plates.

>> No.3547551

I'm saying they do have a solid enough understanding, a middle point. But /ic/ sometimes goes overboard with how hard you must study and shows drawings like the first post that only a few select guys are probably able to draw with that level of perfection.

how to draw manga:

>> No.3547561

Fundamentals are most important in making good anime, poor fundamentals will show and make for poor anime. Anatomy while important, isn't everything as long as you can create believable forms in space, that applies for most cartoons imo. Biggest difference in western vs nip cartoons is the face, so trace that shit from your faves until it's muscle memory but always think in 3D.

Explain why all the hentai I fap to can't even get the gender's genitalia right.

>> No.3547588

There's literally thousands of hours of it. It's fucking called anime.

>> No.3547600

Because philosophically speaking, anime is heavily rooted in visual dynamism and appealism, meaning that aesthetics are the single most important aspect of the piece in anime art. But anime is not an island and you can see the various sources that they pull from for inspiration in all sorts of anime, Osamu Tezuka’s relationship with the earlier Disney cartoons is a prime example of this, or Miyazaki’s rebellion against Tezuka’s movement. Anime as a movement is in constant flux but the constant of simple dynamic appealism is a constant. Now back to the subject of hentai (which is art) having the “wrong” genitalia. Again, like Tezuka drawing from Disney, the insertion of phallic symbols in the world around us has been a constant. This isn’t something that is simply constrained to art either, look at the Eiffel Tower or the Washington Monument. These are very obviously phallic images used asked as a way to convey a wide range of both positive and negative emotions. The potential of the phallic symbol can not be understated. And back to hentai, what they do is really genius, truly. They take the phallic symbol and everything it represents, really everything it encapsulates running the gamut of French and American history and mood it into their own by attaching it on to the opposite gender. By doing this they have completely turned the idea of phallic power on its head and revolutionized the art world. The use of dicks on chicks in anime has had an impact on all our lives in incredible ways and yet many of us do not even realize. I advise you to indulge in more hentai and refrain from calling chicks with dicks “wrong”. It is a very deliberate artistic choice and a stroke of unbelievable genius. Do not dillute it or sully it but instead embrace it my friend.

anime heads and bodies are 5d objects that completely change in shape as they rotate in 3d space
if you want to learn anime, you have to animate, study anime frame by frame, understand why the deformations take place

>> No.3547613

That was a deliberate choice on my end anon. Like the African American community has taken the obscene and hateful word “nigger” and transformed it into a word of empowerment with “nigga”. I am aiming to do the same with the crude phrase “chicks with dicks”. It is built upon the persecution and vilification of anime enthusiasts (the most persecuted class in 2018 mind you) such as myself and I think this is a goodbfirst step in empowering those who indulge in that which society can not understand. It is my hope that in a few years, “chicks with dicks” will be used in a much more positive connotation in the future.

Well, any established art teacher's learning material is interchangable as long as you put in the time and effort. Loomis just happens to teach the kind of anatomy detail level most japanese artists use where they focus more on form and perspective and anatomy just needs to be serviceable.

Who cares if it's hard? If there's something you want to learn, it doesn't matter if it's easy or hard. What matters is that you want it. The good news is anatomy is something you can study piecemeal. If you notice your arms are fucked up, or you don't know how to shade shoulders, study arms. Even better, it's a subject where knowing a little can take you a long way. And it's not like you can't draw your mangas inbetween actual studies, the all or nothing attitude is stupid.

okay ill teach you the formula for drawing cute anime girls: learn anatomy, learn perspective. if those terms are too broad for you ill break it down for you, practice drawing faces, including eyes, nose, mouth, lips, ears, etc. practice drawing bodies including chests, torsos, legs, arms, necks, back, butts etc. once you learn these things and dedicate them to memory we can move onto more difficult areas of study

Anatomy is about breaking the body down into its components. Once you know what the calf muscles are and what they look like, you'll understand why a calf looks different from the side than it does from the front, and so on. You'll also learn its size in comparison to, say, the quadriceps, so you understand the proportions of the average person.

Just like in early perspective exercises you learned how to rotate and move boxes and cylinders in 3D space, now you are learning to rotate and move bones and muscles in 3D space.
