Any good books on manga techniques? I'm not talking about some dumb fucking weabshit like drawing anime characters, i have no use for that, i mean like a book that discusses in detail creating manga, the comic book medium. Panel composition, flow, pacing, shit like that.

>> No.4011141

Yes, Akira Toriyama's own book. He spill all the beans on how to create manga and at the end he criticizes a few stories from newcomers mangakas.. As a plus he shows how to draw Dr Slump chars.

>> No.4011142

seconding toriyama,
hirohiko araki of jojo fame also has a manga book.

and i also recommend the marvel book on the same subject.

Scott McCloud's books on comic theory are really good, even if you're a weeb wanting to make western manga. His first two books are great reads, but Making Comics is more detailed and practical in regards to making your own comics.
If you want something really good straight from the source, read Even A Monkey Can Draw Manga. It's mostly funny and satire, but there's some genuine wisdom drops that make the most complex topics seem simple and approachable.

Notice how almost every post you make start with (or consists of) a clickbait question and the few that don't have just insults in them?
It shows your means of "communication" is solely reliant on drawing a reaction from others. You either hook them through the need to answer some menial stupid shit and do all the work of talking, or you may just spout some lazy, inflammatory one liner so people can once again do all the work for you by replying with longer, more elaborate reactions.

I guess it really served you well through your life as a defensive mechanism and you always moderately got what you wanted; hell, you even got this rather analytical post from me.

Just remember: the squeaky wheel might get the oil, but it's the first one to be replaced.

I could have called that many other semantically related things. Bait(-and-switch), passive-agressiveness, outrage culture, provocation, polemic, eye-catcher, pointless, bad faith, rhetorically empty.
In fact, I did call it other things, such as "one liner" and "inflammatory", alluding, respectively, to journalism and general speeches/debates.

But clickbait was my word of choice. Your mental association between this word and YouTube is not even unwelcome, as I am criticizing anon's behavior on the same vein I would YouTube's hostile culture towards everyone's brains.

With all this laid down, I believe you are bothered not by the lack of synonyms or related terms in my lexicon, but by the specific, single occurrence of that word. Which renders your claim of me having only one point of reference absurd. How many times does one have to restate the same idea before you consider enough points of view have been used? Wouldn't your fixation on a single word, conversely, imply YOU have only one point of reference when talking about my word choices?

You're actually autistic. It doesn't matter what it is that you want. It's about how you asked for it. Coming in and saying "I'm not looking for this because it's dumb shit" is obviously insulting and you're actually retarded if you think people won't react to that.

Who told you this? Are you retarded?

You can learn through observation and criticial analysis, not just by forced brick trial and error. In fact, learning through only forced trial and error is never really going to get you anywhere unless you have observational critical analysis skills. Legitimately what are you even talking about.

>> No.4012656 [DELETED] 

I don't think you know what making mistakes means.
>observation and criticial analysis
Just because you look at something and say it makes sense doesn't mean you know how to do it. You still have to practice, dumbfuck. And that means going at it until you get it right.
>forced brick trial and error
Pretty sure this is supposed to mean making the same mistake over and over again? Yeah no shit that doesn't work.
