>Lineart drawn at a high resolution with a relatively thin brush
>body colors have a warm, inviting palette. Even the Black bikini top has pinkish hues in it. The blue of the background contrasts with the warm foreground, making it pop.
>Shading done with a round brush to give it a smooth look. Most of the shadows are large and simple, which adds to the aesthetic appeal (ex. the shadows on the stomachs). Additional shading details are donw with a soft brush with a color very similar to the base skin tone, and are done sparingly (ex. The shadow on the left girl's deltoid and her abdominals) a hard round brush is used to add a few subtle highlights (ex. the spots of light on the breasts, the shoulders, and the noses)
>Lineart is colored in with a slipping/masking layer to match the warm hues of the skin

i can see it too
a few things that stood out to me

1. on the left, the upper arm. judging by the length in the image, her arm should be coming out towards the viewer at a fairly shallow angle.
the depth cues (line overlap, shadows) on her breasts indicate that the breasts are in front of the arm instead, which just makes the upper arm just look short.

2. bracelet angle kinda looks mismatched to the arm it's placed on, also making it look short (im on the fence about this one)

3. probably something to do with the hand angle and connection to the forearm, but I can't really pinpoint the issue

there is nothing hard about it. your problem is you start painting when you don't have a good drawing.
the hard part is drawing not the color. paint with soft brushes by masking the shapes with lasso tool so that the edges are clean. make sure to go warmer towards the shadows or it will look muddy. also when you make a color warmer you have to change the hue not just the saturation. other wise it will look muddy.
but even if you are a great colorist you still need good drawing for it to look good

The whole japanese industry is about imitating a certain trendy style. That's why they copy a lot. To learn it. Many of them don't have this mentality of "I need to be so original, I need to find my own style". Also, copying and studying a style does not exclude one from studying fundamentals. They're different practices.

What this anon said >>4015385
What the artist in that webm is most likely doing is looking at an IRL pose for reference and laying down the landmarks before slowly putting it together. After a while of doing this (since the artist is clearly experienced) they get used to the flow and can easily draw a face with little construction.
You can see they start really rough but then clean it up more and more as they go along.
If they aren't using a ref, then it's very possible to do this easy ass pose with enough practice. There's no perspective and it's just a standing anime girl with one arm raised. They just have a built up visual memory from studying real life.
