The "Anime Art Trend" 177 Art Discussion 5/7/09 1:35am

I'm an editor, not an artist, for the most part because my fine motor control is shot. There are no magic bullets for this sort of thing. You can do all the reading in the world about the Golden Ratio and other "rules" for laying out an image, but in the end it just comes down to developing the right kind of aesthetic sense. But here's some suggestions. Like I said previously, your art i ...

I think that is in fact your major problem. But do what you like.

Well, to be honest, photomanipulation of the type you're doing is very rarely any good at all. Those sorts of layouts wouldn't look good even if they were hand-drawn, and they look even more amateur when they're based around fairly generic photos and somebody else's vector packs. They are too busy, unbalanced, and thematically chaotic, and they generally scream "Photoshop". If somebody can tel ...

Um. Dude. I don't know any other way to tell you this, but you're kind of crap. Your photomanips look like generic DeviantArt stuff (complete with Go Media vector art), and your hand-drawn material is sloppy, with poor layouts, bad anatomy, and no sense of color. I don't know who's been telling you that you rock, but you don't. As far as I can tell you've skipped the fundamentals just li ...

If you know that it's horrible, why are you sharing it? Do you want people to think that you are a crap artist?

Really, every time I get a badly-spelled piece of hate mail on my profile, it just makes my day. "Oh look, a stupid person hates me. I must be doing something right." I never delete them, I keep them just the way they are.

Looking for tips before starting a webcomic. 17 Comic Creators 5/1/09 11:00pm

The "evil super-intelligent rabbit" thing was beaten completely into the ground by one of the very first popular webcomics, Sluggy Freelance. It will be literally impossible to have a character like that without drawing comparisons to the character Bun-Bun. Having a bunch of characters descend into a swords-and-sorcery parody has also been done by nearly every webcomic that has been around ...

She edited it in, yes. It wasn't there when the thread started. In any case, her DA gallery does absolutely nothing to bolster her argument, since every single piece on there is obviously the work of someone who has done nothing but imitate anime. Not even manga, but anime pin-up work and the like. For example, this was posted less than a week ago, and it shows an obvious lack of knowled ...

Don't bother starting if it's one of the following: 1 ) A comic about video games or people who play them 2 ) The adventures of you and your super funny friends, full of jokes that only your friends get 3 ) Anything that can be described as "X combined with Y" 4 ) A manga-inspired comic about very pretty homosexuals (male or female) 5 ) A comic which features gender transformations of any s ...
