did better than previous sets, I was able to focus a lot better for some reason.

anatomically correct AND emotionally correct
You've definitely hit on something with that. As i was drawing those two pages I realised once again that even in a photo, hands can look pretty awful and "unrealistic" for certain poses. So to some extent, manga/art is not drawing things correctly, but drawing things to look correct.

For me my worst hand poses are the OK gesture (or any thumb to finger pose) , and just an open palm pose. I just can't get them right for some reason haha

I always use photo references to draw from, but a lot are ones I have taken of myself. Partly thats because I don't have a decent mirror setup to get the angles that I want, and mostly you will be drawing hands from the opposite angle that you look at your own hands. I need to take more references with interacting with props.

I also use manga reference to see how other artists simplify the body and hands, but I try to not use it as reference too much since it is pretty low quality.

Yeah learning from life is a great start. You can google image "male face in profile" etc for specific things to copy. Pinterest and DeviantArt also have lots of reference and tutorials for how to draw stuff which is sometimes helpful.

More like a ditch than a rut to be honest haha
Yeah I sort of hit an art hurdle at the same time as my life got a bit messy with redecorating so it made it hard to focus. I'm vaguely picking up more determination and focus but we'll see :P

Yeah I think artists have sort of stock poses for figures and hands and faces that they pick up along the way for drawing very quickly, especially for background characters that you barely look at. Even the way they draw folds for the clothes is often very similar in each panel, but each artist has their own style.

Totally out of commission and I'm too lazy to be out of commission anymore
That's close to how I'm feeling T_T
I keep saying it's getting better but it end sup going backwards :P

nice characters, I like the glasses guy on the right.

I go back to paper when the going gets tough. It saves having to worry about getting settings and stuff right, and I can pick it up instantly when I fancy doing it, instead of waiting for my PC to boot and I get unmotivated in the time it takes :P

I'm just about alive, nearly over my self pity stage haha
just copies this time round, after looking at photo reference and then at manga pages that I've saved it's quite clear that artists skimp on the detail/accuracy they put into hands. I suspect that's mostly because of deadlines and stuff, they can't put their very best into a shot when they have 20+ pages a week to churn out. Until I'm under the same sort of pressure I guess I won't know how that feels, but I hope that I can put my best into every panel, even if it is wishful thinking XD

150/365. Art has betrayed me and I don't know anything anymore. still managed to muddle through another set of 12.

one of my recently cleaned arts was a fan art.
what I'm learning about how fan art works with my wip methods - you really gotta finalize the drawing sooner rather than later, as you start to forget details about the characters and they start not looking like who they're meant to.

actually make it out of 365, why not, one for every day of the year. If I then went back and inked them all I'd have enough content for a year of uploads lol. it's secretly my actual goal to have a vast amount of content and trickle upload it while I'm working on other projects.

at this point I'm realizing what I always knew but realizing it all the same, that art has a serious amount of sub skills and the more you learn, the more you realize there is to learn. So I'm wallowing in a bit of self-pity at the moment wondering how I'm ever going to learn enough to be pro with my lazy attitude XD

also despite a complete lack of attention on my side, my DA is getting way more views than it used to a few months ago, although it's still single figures a day.

so much to do , so little time :P

no problem!
ahhhh, in that case, "Aito took his martial art textbook" might be better. you might have to add a bit more explanation or change the wording, as i didn't make that connection straight away.

wow, you're planning on colouring it? that'll look awesome :P

Nice prologue. I have mixed feelings about him stealing the book though, although I understand the reason for it.

Also, not sure exactly what "Aito took one martial art's book" means. You don't have to say "one", you can say "the", or "a", which makes more sense. Maybe "Aito took the school's martial arts book", or "Aito stole a martial arts book".

Hopefully he does well in the tournament :P

Develop Your Story / Re: Sun and Moon Chapter 1 Summary
« on: June 12, 2019, 08:33:38 AM »
sounds like a decent idea. there's a definite objective of the protagonists with a sense of urgency considering it's a disease, so the story will be gripping hopefully.

What sort of magic/force is Ari? (I'm reminded of the Japanese phrase "Nandemo ari", meaning "Anything goes", but in this case, it means "Everything's magic" XD)
I think it's great that the main character's can't use magic, because it makes their challenges more interesting than just a power fight all the time.

Also, what era is this? you mention Knights which implies medieval, but also police and schools which imply modern-ish.

It sounds like you have a lot going on in your first chapter, you might find it hard to fit it all in unless your storytelling pace is really fast, which might make it hard to follow. Each of those four paragraphs sounds like it could be at least a chapter in it's own right.

they end up doing something to her in order to keep her quiet.
Do you actually know what they do yet, like a threat or magic or something?

no problem with a short story, especially if it's one of your first mangas. better to keep the target reachable until you know what you're capable of XD

@walterB thanks! I'm working on improving the range of shoes I can draw at the moment :P

@nicoledrawsanime thanks, haha yeah everyone has to take advantage of their own skill to improve. Mine is being able to produce a lot of work XD

I've been having a moody week, I blame the next door neighbors moving in and using power tools on my wall, as well as my own decorating, which has left my room more of a storage room than a bedroom, so I can't focus on anything.
