How do you make money? (hard mode : no porn)
This is a very generic question but I love so many aspects of drawing and animation, I have to chose one (online, for reasons). And I'm not sure what fields are not too crowded when you're only, and probably will ever be, only average (I don't even aspire to superb technique, I myself like simpler stuff and perosnality rather than awesome technique even if I can appreciate it).

Webcomics? (Webtoon? How do they even pay?)
Animation? (is 2D still valid? Or is it just my childhood and you have to do 3D now to get work)
And what niches are good to look into?

Also, use this thread to talk about any related stuff and business in general if you want, might as well.

Animation is definitely a standout on twitter, but personally I'm not too sure if it's worth the effort to turn into a business as opposed to plain 2D art. I will say though, animation is a REALLY useful tool for improving your 2D in general. As for 3D, not too knowledgeable about it besides it being easier in some ways I think? I dunno.

>And what niches are good to look into?
Honestly anything you're interested in would make a good niche to specialize in. It helps if it's something really specific (such as art for an obscure game or something) as it's easier to be a big fish in a small pond. But in general, please, for your own sake, only specialize in something if you enjoy it.

In general for business, consistent output and goodwill are key. Think of McDonalds or Burger King what you will, but when you walk into those establishments, you know exactly what to expect when you order something.

Now do you have the "you need to draw realism before you can draw anime" meme?

>> No.5253456

in the last 6 months I have done

-Album release artworks
-Logo for small business
-Typography and other designs for a clothing label
-Tattoo Design

the best advice I ever got was to strengthen connections to communities and niches that you are already interested in or have some kind of connection to (aside from art related stuff)
That can be as general as science or as specific as competetive yoyoing - those people that share your passions are your potential clients maybe they have projects that you would never have even thought of but if youre known in those circles then people will come to you because personal reccomendation always trumps anonymous online portfolios.

Expand your social circles, hell maybe take up a new hobby but always, always introduce yourself as someone who does creative stuff even if it isnt your main income.

That book? Or "how to draw (x)" books in general?
Some of the how to draw (x) books are good, but theyre better described as "how I render (x)".
The most valuable ones tell you how to generate ideas for your chosen topic or how to use a specific medium to achieve certain effects. I just got a book about how to draw ghosts and vampires and its pretty decent for what it is. Had a some trad tutorials on how to handle smoke, transparent objects and paint gore.

Why You Should Copy Anime:

**Strive for quantity AND quality.**

Anime Studying:
>Copy anime references exactly and draw them from memory. Use illustrations, screenshots, anime figures, 3D models, etc.
>Don’t copy recklessly. Use construction, color theory, and other fundamental concepts to rehearse a drawing process that you can later easily manipulate for original artwork.
>Post all of your anime studies. Post even when you’re told not to. Create an art community that actually draws and improves together instead of just talking about it.
>Number your attempts and link to your previous posts.
>Critiquers should lead by example by posting their studies.

General Anime Style Discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.
>Drawing methods, study habits, resources, tutorials, tools, software, etc
>Be specific and try to post a sample of your study attempts before asking for help.

**Draw copies from good anime styled references to mindfully up our mileage, internalize appealing aesthetics, and learn from each other’s processes and knowledge.**

How do I do lines and textures like these????? With lines I'm mainly wondering how this orange/red glow around the lines was achieved, and the texture. Like, look underneath her chin. How is this effect achieved? I know it looks like some screentone, but I don't know what type of screentone, or what drawing software can do it easily. Also, there's this jpeg like artifacts around lines, and I'm wondering if that's what also gives the lines some of that glow.

try with CSP

>> No.5252395
Quoted By: >>5252500

Honestly not too knowledgeable about brushes but it looks like for most of the lineart they use a kinda brush pen-like brush with texture to it.

Adding glow to lineart can be done pretty simply. I use Krita and you can give lineart layers an outer/inner glow via layer styles, dunno what the equivalents are called in CSP or Photoshop or whatever you use.

For the tones in the shadows they probably colored those in all black and then used a lighter brush with screentones and probably pressure opacity. Also probably used a big blotchy brush for the dark areas.

>> No.5252500
Quoted By: >>5252574 >>5252778

I also use Krita, that part about layer styles was actually really helpful, it looks like something promising and worth experimenting with. Thing is, it applies the effect on the whole layer, whereas here the glow is only in few places... Now that I think about it I guess this effect could be achieved by making a copy of the lineart layer, changing it's color to dark brown, adding the glow, then blocking it out so it only shows through in some places but not all(so in this case only near her eyes and breasts, and leaving everything else as pure black).

As for screentones... the guy's a jap so I guess I'll just have to see what CSP has to offer. Krita has kinda limited selection of those.
