wow, pretty amazing. at first glance I might not have noticed that it wasn't the original artist!
I think the inking and the sketch came out really good, keep it up!

damn it's in another freaking level.
Yup, you've got that right :P

thanks for your comment :)

It's not so much consistency that I'm worried about, although that is a pain anyway, but more that I love so many styles that I can't pick one!!!
At one point I did have the thought "I want to have my own unique style", but along the way it's diverged into "I want to have so many styles and copy-styles that I get accused of stealing work". To me, it's doing the things that are the hardest that give me the greatest fulfillment, so I think I'm likely to lean towards copying other artists styles (not their actual art!) exactly, at least for part of my work. I don't know if I want to give my own flare to it, or copy it perfectly, but I'd love for someone to say "hey that's [artist name]'s work you thief!!!!" XD
but equally I want to have a few different styles that are my own, developed from zero with planning and thought. Like I sit down and say "Ok today I'm going to add a new style to my portfolio", and just keep sketching and changing stuff until I like what I see
that sort of deviated from what I was trying to say but that's my thoughts

Yeah I totally agree on the "one perfect style" not existing, since at least a while ago I've wanted to have multiple styles, especially for drawing in different genres of manga. ie Ajin style vs lucky star style - both are great because they fit the genre.

I think my style will come naturally once I get my proportions and other basic concepts down a bit better, as part of a style is drawing proportions the same way, and I can't draw proportions any right way yet lol
same with shading and folds in clothing, you need to understand the fundamentals to give it your own twist. At least I want my style to be based in realism, even if I play around with the proportions afterwards and end up with a chibi.

my plan for getting a style will most likely come as a training regime, where I will pick a past drawing of mine which I like the style and say "ok this is now my only style", develop it and then draw 100 illustrations in that style.
I have about 10 different distinct styles from my past artworks that could be a nice base for a permanent style but I'm probably going to focus on fundamentals first. within a year I might have started on a personal style but we'll see :P

edit: finished a bunch of sketches.

I'm gonna be busy for the next couple of weeks until probably the second week of September, so if I'm AWOL, that's why :P

you could post it on the forum if you like!
I can't make any promises to read or give feedback because I'm really bad at reading anything longer than about 200 words XD

cool magical energy
yeah you always draw your fabrics with quite a bit of bulk to them, for a scarf thingy it's normally quite a thin fabric I'm thinking. As always, google photo references!
A trick I have seen in manga for drawing objects behind fabric, is to actually draw the hidden features, and then erase parts of them (at least that's what it looks like). But it can make the fabric look transparent if you do it wrongly, and I don't really know what makes that difference :P

and yes proportions do heavily rely on guidelines, yet another reason to make sure the guidelines are good before adding details :P

@WalterB thanks! Well they are copies so I suppose they already got used as reference? haha

@Echo thanks! I'm hoping that I can pick up some tips for when I draw the hair styles from scratch. there seem to be so many different ways of drawing things that my own style seems to be lost in a sea of possibilities. very much "the fox and the cat" fable.

Anywho I managed to unlock a new drawing ability by shifting my creativity to its maximum and my accuracy to it's minimum. I must come up with a cool name for it. Well, it's just thumbnailing haha
It's a lot easier to come up with an idea when you arent bothered about the accuracy or proportions at all. Back in my old drawing days, when I never finished a drawing, it had to be good then or never, so I was always too focused on getting it right, to get it good. Now I know with certainty that I will fix and finish the sketches that I produce, so I can be more creative in turn.
As far as I can tell no-one has ever mentioned this sort of thing as advice for artists, so maybe it's only applicable for someone like me, who has difficulty focusing and overthinks everything.

reminds me a bit of something Lego would draw XD

on reflection my life simply isn't long enough to handle too many of these 1000x regimes haha should really start some stories soon....

I've got some masterpiece artworks lined up because I have no idea what my top level is at the moment and it's been at least a year since I was "serious", and even then I didn't have this whole processing levels thing going on.

PS also I've been doing more programming lately (not the VN, sorry!)
I'm making a CAD program, because, I don't really know why, because it's difficult I guess?
I've gone past 18 A4 pages of notes like this and still the entire thing is a mystery to me XD
I'm past 4000 lines of code which is nice but not a metric for achievement nor progression unfortunately :P

ahhhhh cool, it sounds like you've got it all planned out perfectly!

I'm planning on some sort of fantasy but I'll probably explore different genres. I want to try out a shoujo story as well because the art is so different, slice-of-life, comedy, everything haha.
mostly I'm planning on writing a bunch of one shot scripts - an Isekai-genre (ie Konosuba), a stuck-in-the-game-genre (ie SAO), medieval fantasy (ie 7 Deadly sins), amongst many, many, others. Basically one of each genre to see what's best for me, and then probably try writing a short (5-10 chapter) manga in that genre.
it sounds like a lot, because it actually is.... XD

sounds awesome!
as with any story, there are elements which sound similar to other stories, but as long as you explain and justify the elements and let them blend into your story, then it will turn out great!
when you say 3 mangas, are they like spin-offs of the novel, or just a manga version of the same story? and why are there three?????? so many questions haha
all the best for getting your novel and mangas completed!

awesome, that doesn't sound messy at all to be honest :)
I also like working from the end of a story, although I haven't really gotten into proper story writing yet :P
It's almost like you start with one-liner descriptions for everything, then make a section of notes for each subject which you go into more detail, and then repeat with more detail again. I like the idea of increasing the depth/complexity by going over and over it and adding stuff, it's how I do my art :P
