well obviously there's no "universal background" because genres and locations vary greatly.
But I mean trees and stuff are universal? try drawing some scenery with plants and trees.

Lot's of points here, I'm probably gonna give a more in depth response when I'm awake more haha but I will simply say this:
If it works for you, then that's all that matters. It doesn't matter if it doesn't work for other people. They can have their opinions about it and they can keep them. And you can have your opinions and keep them too.

For several years I have held the theory that there are not only many roads that lead to good art, but almost any road that leads anywhere leads to good art as long as you follow down it long enough.

I am totally for a full body mecha suit haha. I started trying to figure out a design several years ago and just gave up because of time constraints. When I get better at designing and drawing cool parts and stuff then it will finally be worth the time investment, methinks. I look forward to your sick bois XD

it's good to take advice from others, but at the same time you don't want to be a slave to them and design exactly what they want instead of what you want - it won't be fun for you to do that.
So a mix is nice. It's OK to not take advice sometimes as well if you feel it doesn't suit your work or style, but you have to be careful when rejecting ideas as they might be useful in some way or form.
we're always here on the forum to share ideas and get feedback off of each other so you're always welcome to discuss your ideas here.

I've seen the anime for Another, it was not bad :)

@lego haha yeah I occasionally think about doing another pipe page :P

just copy small parts for now on their own - like doors or windows, pipes and so on, like this:

don't wait until you feel inspired because you might be waiting a long time! I am hardly ever in the mood to draw but I draw every day now regardless, even if I feel tired.

I'm 26 lol
I do most of this stuff at work so I get training on the job.
There's no point feeling negative about what others can or can't do, it's about what do you want to do, and start doing it!

haha yeah I've loved ball bearing mazes since I was a kid, and I'd make marble runs around my room with whatever I could find when I was younger.
It's really fun to play with.
Yeah I still have 3 of the sets I made, I never finally completed the project as it was meant to have a lid, but I did create a version where the pieces are stored in trays in the sides of the board. I don't really like chess and I'm not really sure why I made it, I think it just sounded like a nice challenge at the time XD

haha I surf so infrequently on the net waves that I generally miss spoilers and suchlike haha
I don't like reading manga blogs and stuff because partly spoilers, but also because it's a constant reminder about how I'm not drawing or being constructive myself.
I'm currently reading about 10-20 chapters a day of different mangas, mostly the mainstream ones just to catch up and rereading my favourites too.

generally you want to have a balance of details over the page so no area looks unfinished or empty.
don't worry if you don't know the names of stuff, just give it your own name. when I did my pipes [here] for Inktober I just played around with different things I had seen in the past and my own imaginations.

really though, you need to just start drawing and not worry about where to start. It's like wondering what do you eat first in a meal - anything is better than nothing - just get stuck in.

Yeah that one-theme-per-canvas feeling is a friend or an enemy if you're not careful. Indeed it does seem to help when you're trying to fill space or generate ideas to work to a smaller scale. I've been toying with the idea of working on an infinite canvas of sorts, I know there are some apps like that about and I could "probably" make one myself.

and awesome that you're homing in on a style. I kinda feel the same for my own art finally, but it's one of many styles that I'd like to do.

yeah I was trying to draw each piece as I went but I started to lose the form of the body underneath haha
once I shade it hopefully I can give the feel that they are separate a bit more :P

look at environments that you like and write down the different parts and objects that are in them, and then describe those objects - their style, materials, locations etc. Break down the objects into their parts to make it easier to draw them.
Then you have your buildings blocks that you can mix up to create new environments of a similar theme.

whats "good" to me might not be good to you, so personal style and opinion are important in how you design things.
try drawing something or designing it, and if it doesnt look cool, think "what would make this cooler?"

Asta being completely wholesome because of his one love is cute, but it is annoying that everyone seems to fall for him. That being said, it seems that in the magic world, everyone is pretty nasty, especially those with power, so it's probably refreshing to have someone so pure in comparison.

The pace is perhaps a little too fast but I can't say I noticed until you mentioned it. I don't like arcs dragging out so I think I prefer it anyway.

also if you havent seen the last chapter:
which I absolutely hate.

I haven't seen the anime yet but I can imagine he shouts the whole time which would also be a bit annoying.

and yes Captain Yami is the true protagonist :P

man, that's excellent. Glad the method works for you as well. now the question is, why does it work?
How would you go about doing it traditionally? working on A3?
the thin style is also nice. cool crazy big eyes too. and the cute bottom chibis also cute :P

well it's tempting to drop the quality and finish them all off but I'm viewing it as a learning experience. And I'm taking my time but trying to do a little every day to finish it off.
Well if I knew what I was doing with the armour it would have been more fun tbh it was kinda stressful not knowing what I was doing at all :P

What's strange/funny is that I haven't drawn my own art at this top level yet so I can't wait to give 100% to a piece of my own. Would be great to see what I'm capable of, and to find my current limits and where to go from here.

That's a lovely memory to have.
I've got some Prima-somethings or Perma-something markers and most of them still work from several years ago. I still keep trying to use them to no avail :|
I look forward to seeing some art!
Whaaaaaat, you hadn't met up to that point? I thought you actually knew each other irl XD That'd be great to hear about.
