The more you learn, the better you understand your limits and the distance between you and the top.

General Discussion / 3D backgrounds

Out of curiousity, does anyone here use 3D models as bases for their backgrounds?

I recently started messing around with SketchUp and it seems very convenient. Drawing a proper perspective for every panel tends to be bothersome, so I'm considering just making 3D models of the locations I use often and use them as the base for my backgrounds. Of course, the details would have to be hand-drawn though. Have any of you guys tried working like this? What was the experience like?

If you want to try it out yourself, there is a free browser version of SketchUp that I'm using. I would link it but I don't have the rights yet lol. Well, you can Google it if you're interested.

I've seen a few episodes of Texhnolyze. However, it did seem a bit too bleak for me. I had the same problem with Ima Soko ni Iru Boku. Those series are dark.

Well, I wouldn't expect Hikaru no Go to blow your mind or anything. The part that I like about it the most is the visible growth of the main character over the entire series, so it's quite a slow burn. It is still a shounen sports anime, albeit maybe a bit atypical in that the main character can actually sometimes lose. Regardless, it is very enjoyable.

I did mention about liking thought provoking anime in my introduction, didn't I? Just ignore Hikaru no Go and Rurouni Kenshin OVA

Wait, you've watched Ryvius too?? The other animes I've seen at least someone mention, but you're like the only other person I know who has seen Ryvius! *high fives*

I just finished updating my MAL profile favorites, so I might as well post them here too.

Serial Experiments Lain
Rurouni Kenshin: Tsuioku-hen OVA
Hikaru no Go
Mugen no Ryvius
Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu
Shinsekai Yori
Mawaru Penguindrum

Somewhat ordered, but it's not exactly absolute. Oh, and if I could add one more, it would be Shinreigari: Ghost Hound.

Thank you for the welcome.

After looking around the forums a bit, I've noticed the sections for manga and fanfiction. However, is there a place for original fiction? Since I'm looking for feedback I was thinking writing a couple of one-shots might be a good way to test my basics.

I'm also wondering if there is a place to discuss names (err, or whatever they're called, using the terminology from Bakuman here), ie. rough sketches of manga story before the actual artwork is done?

Hello! I'm somewhat of a digital artist, however I've been in a bit of a slump for the last... 5 or so years. This is why I came here in order to look for a community that could encourage me to draw more. It would also be interesting if I could receive some feedback on my writing here.

In anime I usually like mystery genre and generally series that give me thought provoking ideas. Not to say I don't enjoy pure escapism or stupid fun too. As long as I can get into the characters or find the story ideas interesting, anything goes :D

As for my other non-art related skills, I can do programming and know enough Japanese to not need subtitles.

<Nice to meet you>
