You know how my Square Enix character is wearing a zipperbelt around his head? Years later, I came across a thread where someone joked that Tetsuya Nomura would probably be wearing that around his head... just found that amusing

too many A bunch of layers gathered into different folders according to type, from bottom to top:

- sometimes a few reference layers at the bottom
- background layers
- various color layers (notably, I often use several layers just for the way I color eyes)
- a shade layer masked over the colors folder and set to lower opacity + multiply
- lineart layer(s)
- a layer for eye shines
- bubbles and other text layers, also including hand-drawn sound effects and misc. other effects

I guess I COULD merge some layers together but it would be harder to fix mistakes later so eh ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Eh, I don't think saying a character reminds you of another one is necessarily a negative thing, as long as you're not complaining about them being a ripoff or something. Most of the time, it just seems like a neutral, fun observation and I wouldn't mind if anyone said it about my characters (in fact I would just find it amusing)... however, I understand why some artists wouldn't like it and I'd avoid leaving a comment like that if I knew they didn't like it

Well, my avatars are humanized game companies, so... it would be kinda weird, but also cool! Me and Nintendo would probably get along... at least unless she finds out I've gotten some of her games from "unofficial" sources... Namco would also be fun to hang out with, though I'd be careful about what ice cream I eat... Would stay away from EA and Konami, though

Yeah, I just don't see why it's such a big deal if people read or not, for me it's just another medium.

Personally, I very rarely read books anymore, I generally prefer visual media. Comics, movies, games... but a story told just through text rarely interests me that much anymore. Used to love reading as a kid and young teen but gradually just... lost interest? Some people like reading and some don't

JammyTheBirb:I just really like how sprites look. 3D video game graphics don't do it for me at all, and I was genuinely a bit sad when Pokemon switched to 3D. I always felt there's something beautiful in working with limitations.


Agree about sprites - I genuinely like pixel art as a type of art style by itself, something that has nothing to do with "retro nostalgia".

(oto)MADs and similar meme-ish mashup stuff counts, right? Because that would be mine, guess that would be a subgenre of "animation + music mashup"

Also making music sounds kinda fun

Oh, I tried this years ago when it was still called HabitRPG and (I think?) only had a browser version - thanks for reminding me this exists! I was considering getting the app a while back (and then forgot all about it again), maybe I should try this again... Thinking/hoping I can just use my old account from way back x3

I guess some people, in addition to just not being a fan of the style in general, feel it's too "overused" and sometimes even "less original"? I've seen this quite a bit with "anime/manga style" (which technically shouldn't be a specific "style" since anime/manga just means "Japanese cartoons/comics" and those can look very different from each other but that's another discussion): never liked the assumption/view that "anime style" and "your own original style" is mutually exclusive, that this type of style, or rather elements commonly associated with it, are inherently less "original" than certain other types. If you just straight-up copy the style of your favorite mangaka that's one thing, but why is this kind of inspiration "worse" and "less original" than other kinds of inspirations? How do you know it's not just the artist genuinely liking to draw and preferring this style instead of just trying to "copy what's popular"? I've seen a bunch of artists saying they want to move away from "anime style" (often seeming to mean anime inspiration in general) to "my own original style", and sure, I'm all for changing your style and trying something else if you want, and you can feel however you like about the styles but with this choice of words being used over and over again...

For me... there's no specific styles I "hate", really, it's all about how the art itself looks. Pretty much all types of styles can look good or at least decent to me, though of course there are styles I prefer over others or like less than others

Heh, I actually love salmiakki/salty licorice x3 best licorice

Can't think of many specific foods I've tried and really hated right now, bad meals however... this ravioli I ate once when on a class trip comes to mind, the filling tasted like nothing, the pasta itself tasted terrible (not sure how you mess up pasta that bad) and the sauce was not great either. My classmates didn't exactly seem impressed with the pizza they ordered either, so guess I won't be eating at that place again if I go back

I mean... there are several things I love specifically BECAUSE they're trash xD I'm quite fond of "so bad it's good". Chargeman Ken, Garzey's Wing, ect.

Though other than that... it's actually hard for me to think of "guilty" pleasures, guess I'm just too shameless xD A few things that came to mind at first are honestly more "actually just kinda meh"

phoenixjklin:
I've always heard that you should start with more realistic artstyle, and then move onto a more cartoony style if you want, but I've never heard of how someone would do the opposite.

Regarding this - I think it would be more a case of also practising fundamentals and then trying to incorporate what you've learned into your drawings, whether you want to change your style or you're happy with it or the "idea" of it but want to improve it. (I really should get back to practising more ahaha) If you specifically want a more realistic style, practise from reference photos and get inspiration artwork in similar styles

(and a comment on the "start realistic and then move on to cartoony"): for me, I started out drawing cartoony and simple because, well, I started drawing as a young kid and never stopped, I know "when you started drawing" is supposed to mean more when you started being more "serious" about drawing or took it up as a hobby rather than literally the first time you picked up some crayons, but for me there wasn't a moment like that, I never stopped drawing and it just gradually and slowly grew into that from my early childhood to my teens x3 I'm happy with my style, or the "idea" of it but would also like to improve

Well... my comic is a gag comic with no real "ending", just a bunch of standalone comic pages/short stories x3 Though I guess I try making the short stories the "right" length, not too short and rushed but also not dragging on too much

Well... my comic IS more or less already based around real-life brands and companies xD since it's supposed to be a parody with sometimes direct commentary it makes more sense to refer to the actual companies in this case x3 For my other idea, though, I likely would make up a lot of them, but less due to copyright worries (it's a free webcomic, after all) and more due to it being not-quite "our" world (though it's similar, except for the characters being anthro animals) and thus wouldn't have the same brands, plus it could be fun making up stuff and some would just be clear parodies of existing stuff anyway
