His gumroad tutorials are literal "draw the rest of the fucking owl" tier and he still has the nerve to charge $20 dollars each.
His youtube tutorials are just "use wamr and cold colors" and then "render"
What a scam/waste of time.

String comment = "I have been contemplating about poses and themes and how they're achieved/illustrated. I hope for a discussion, and/or critique/correction to what I say, and that it's after reading the whole thread(in order to avoid confusion).
I have been trying to understand what the majority of poses in illustrations that are on the internet mean, what the thought process behind them would be. I'm not a natural artist, so it's unfathomable to me by instinct. I don't have any idea of what pose to draw the character in, what theme to use. So, let's start by defining a "pose": A pose is a configuration of joints on a human figure, depicted in 3D space. Let's break down that definition and try to understand how to achieve a pose.
>A configuration of joints
Involves understanding how joints move, anatomy, natural human posture, and center of gravity.
>depicted in 3D space
Involves understanding perspective and form.
Now, to take a look at the confusion, I pose a question: Do poses need a "why"?";

READ THE STICKY if you need guidance when you haven't even started
TRY TO GIVE PEOPLE SOME FEEDBACK - many studies are left unreplied, which is a bit sad and can be quite demotivating for the people that try their best to improve, but are left directionless.
REMEMBER, if you've just started out you work will not be good, it doesn't need to be, just get in to the swing of actually drawing, and learning how to study. Most of all, enjoy it.

String comment = "I'm coming to realise lately that ones ability to be able to comprehend complexity allows them to do art that breaks traditional rules and establish some incredibly impressive art.
A lot of people that seem to be able to go beyond the limitations of their work, on average, seem to be a lot more savvy and intelligent compared to the ordinary person.
It makes me realise that the main reason a lot of people in Japan seem to be so good at art in general is down to how intelligent they are.
Isn't it interesting that this country that established computer games as a valid medium in the business workforce also has some of the most intelligent programmers out there? To the point where they lead the world in robotics?
Some of the most highly influential animated pieces of media have usually originated from Japan, and a lot of us here in /ic seem to be obsessed with anime.
Most of us here have a hard time wrapping our heads around the complexity and ease the artists in their country are able to spill out form their land, and I'm thinking its down to how highly intelligent the people are.
Which brings me to wondering;
what are the best ways of improving our cognitive function to allow us to create art on a level that the Japanese are able to churn out? Practice is one key, but there is bound to be other factors involved that allow them to work smart.";

What is /ALT/?
If you're looking for a place to post your cartooning then you've found the right general. This is /ic/s 1st and only merged hub where both Eastern and Western stylization can coexist peacefully, hence the double title. However, by community demand and long history, this is favorably an Anime general.
>Rules & Guidelines
(1) Any form of cartooning is welcome; so submit and receive feedback from others. (2) Please resize your images before posting. (3) Share your knowledge and (4) Remember to not be afraid of asking for critique. Most importantly I encourage you to keep discussion at a civil level, but you're more than welcome to share your opinions.
>I came for anime. Why does the image OP say cartoons general?
To distinguish from the anime study thread (janitor supported). Please post your studies there and personal work goes here.

tiers. Is this okay? I remember that anon told that this is not okay and you should not make 1$ tier and start with 5$.
