sorry dude thats not god tier
thats shading with white dots
Is this any good? So far two things strike me, one is that she's cute and the other is that I like folk music. Don't know anything else except the name but in my experience any manga or anime involving musicians is a melodrama fest of the worst kind.
It really has it's moments.
I feel like Ishida does his best work when he's trying to draw some really distorted images.
I hate that people always say shit like this, as if using photoshop or filtering photos for backgrounds isn't a common technique among nearly all manga artists these days, or as if it detracts from Asano's skill at actual hand-drawing. His art looks fucking amazing. Using PS and filtered photos, and digital tools of any kind are just techniques. It still takes skill to use them in a way that makes a striking and appealing visual product.
There isn't. Why is it "wrong"? As long as an artist is not trying to pass off work done using photos or computer-assisted drafting type tools as hand drawn work, then I don't possibly see how it could be "wrong". It may nto be to your taste, (or mine in many cases, Oku's work being one that I don't care for as much,) but it's a perfectly viable and legitimate technique, variations of which are used my most manga artists. It only makes sense in an industry like manga where there is a lot of pressure to turn out work very quickly that artists would use every tool at their disposal to produce the best looking finished product in the least amount of time possible.
That being said, I do still have a special appreciation for artists who do most of their work the old fashioned hand drawn way, like the two quoted here
You are a fucking idiot.
This /a/non knows exactly what's up.
I know the sequel wasn't as good as the first. And it became shonen battle shit but damn this fucking scene was fucking hype as fuck.
Just google it, anon... it even has the mangareader watermark on the image so you know that there's sauce
that being said, here's more
I know most of you view this manga as edgy, and fair enough it is quite edgy. But I fucking love it and it's art style.
and anything else by Abe Youichi
The faces looked a bit weird for some of the characters but overall it had great scenes.
Posting more since I very rarely see it on /a/.
Early chapters aren't as good looking but it quickly reaches a point where it's worth reading just for the backgrounds alone.
It's a technique for people with less skill that's a fact. Same piece of art done completely by hand would be more impressive than the one created with the aid of PS and such.
at least post something Japanese
>no one has posted JoJo
I shiggy diggy
DGM's art is god-tier for the background (the author draws them herself) and composition mostly. Can't say the same for the character sadly.
why must an artist with so much potential also write his own stories?
Akagami no Shirayukihime has really lovely details, not on the level of Otoyomegatari, but still very pretty.
I still like it, though.
bunch kebab doing kebab stuff, why isnt this more popular yet?
Art's kinda rough but still pretty awesome in its consistency and fight choreography. A lot of care is taken to make the use of its set pieces and the like.
Wouldn't call it god tier but it''s very good.
Too bad /a/ never talks about this.
It's not that great from a technical level, but all of the lead up to that, the thought that he had finally met his match, only to pull THIS out made you realize just how absurdly powerful Saitama really is. Murata is just great at scenes like this.
Just about everything from Nihei. I can't think of another mangaka whose style I like more.
Real is like Rookies, you don't have to know a thing about the sport or like the sport at all to read the series and love it.
>Real isn't even about sports.
>It just happens to have some as drive for character motives and growth.
It's about sports anon
It's got a pretty meh story despite it's cool setting and it's getting released pretty slow. The arts decent but I only really read it for the /ss/ bait, of which there's been none since like chapter 4.
I wish the later volumes would release already in the west.
> shit resolution
> not properly merged double-pages
> exact same manga in every thread
> nothing new
/a/ never learns. Will forever remain hothouse of deluded plebs.
Ryoichi Ikegami is fucking great, although his more recent works have lost this sense of life, too clean.
Doesn't count he draws over 3d objects.
I was just about to post Blade, that was one of the first manga I collected (mainly because it was hard to find anything translated back then/still have a bunch of japanese gunsmith cats/ranma tankobon my local shop used to carry. also over time i've lost all my copies of appleseed and its bummin me out.
Under-appreciated post. Under-appreciated manga. Gash Bell was one of the best Tournement/battle manga I've ever read. Not even Nostalgia talking here, I only got around to it about a year ago.
style wise I do quite enjoy this guys work. and humor
I've always loved the style from the Battle Royale manga.
Pretty sure the manga-ka just likes drawing the MC in different outfits every volume.
It's still pretty though.
I always found something about the art in this series endearing, designs weren't exactly anything but the shading and backdrops were great.
Takahashi Yousuke. His art can also vary wildly and still be good. Dem lines.
A more /m/ flavoured series but Eiichi Shimizu is arguably one of the best super robot artists at the moment, his art in Linebarrel is pretty incredible.
Huh, I saw an illustration from that manga in the back of a volume of 7SEEDs and was wondering what it was for a really long time. Good to know it has some translated volumes.
Akumetsu team is god tier
Saved this image a while ago because I liked the art. No idea what it is though.
>No idea what it is though.
I had the same reaction when i saw it for the first time.
But if you ignore the faces of the characters , it's a solid 9/10.
Just don't read the TokyoPop translation.
Samura actually had classical art education in art school, which explains both why his technique is so unorthodox when compared to the average manga artist and his semi-realistic believable artstyle.
Thank God he's into S&M and female degradation. What is he doing now though?
Deus Vitae has pretty art but the story is complete shit.
There is no need to flip out like that
Starts out looking like a bad Dragonball rip-off, but gets better and better as it goes on.
Anyone got a better picture of this? Screenshot from my phone but I use the Twilight app for my eyes.
I'm surprised i never see Shirow in those artistic development threads. His style changed more than any I know from mid 80's to early 2000's
At this point you can see him straining to make tones do everything he wants. Soon he'd move to airbrush and photocopies. Then CGI
That's some shitty ass quality you got there friend.
More Takahashi, this time it's Bakuon Rettou, yet another hidden gem.
>implying you could take over and country, lift it from complete postwar economic ruin and then decimate the most powerful countries in the world to the brink of destruction
He may have lost, but he had a damn good run.
I was thinking that after I finished chapter 45. She's definitely matured a lot, to the point where she's a character not just a goofy ball of actions. And I'm happy since I always wanted Hibi to win.
>He was a public speaking genius.
Churchill was another excellent speaker but he wasn't a genius, and it's easy to manipulate desperate and longing masses if you're a capable speaker; you don't need to be a genius. You use that word too lightly anyway. Hitler was an idiotic leader because he though he knew better than everyone else and won't take no for an answer. His melding actually made a measurable contribution to Germany losing the war, for example in the later stages of the battle in Normandy he would literally point at his maps marked with divisions and units that didn't exist and tell his capable and experienced commanders what to do with them; this despite the fact they had already told him they only exist on paper. A genius would be smart enough to realise the things he was doing were mistakes and take another route.
>threads like these keep reminding me how the best manga artists are also the shittiest story tellers.
You think so? I don't really feel like that fits with my experience reading manga. Which artists in particular are you talking about?
>Image size: 81 x 125
I think I found the problem, anon.
Nausicaa has fantastic art. There's no good scans of it on the Internet though.
Where can I read this in good quality? Batoto doesn't have it anymore it seems.
There's another translation?
It's just a oneshot, but this.
No matter how much people bitch about it.
Zetman is some really slow shit, but it works because it has a lot of cute moments to pad out the unrelenting edginess.
Also the designs are some of the best for monsters.
>mfw the guy who drew that also did DNA2
I liked the character design during the Ark arc. Then it all went downhill.
the plot may be the weakest part, but it was still there and substantive. it's more about the journey as a reader who isn't allowed to fully understand the world. if you read the prequel and then try rereading blame you'll pick up a lot about the world and the general plot that you didn't know before.
it'd be one thing if blame had a convoluted, or unnecessary grandiose plot, but it's actually pretty simple once you know the actual story.
>fucking cluttered and disgusting
I can't share that opinion. It looks just fine.
Well, everyone knows that Berserk has good art, even if the dragonslayer doesn't always have a consistent size.
what manga has the best
Same artist for Me and the Devil Blues here. I doubt he draws over 3D models. He just has a great feel for anatomy and how the body and how it moves.
Here's a video of him working on a chapter title page.
He's re-starting Me annd the Devil Blues. I used to hate the fact that he did something like Prison School after M&DB was originally canceled but now I love it because it gave him enough popularity to allow him to restart it since it sold like packaged cancer in Japan.
Thank God for Titties.
>it's more about the journey as a reader who isn't allowed to fully understand the world.
Not the same anon but "it's about the journey" troupe is mostly used in when author has got nothing better to say.
where the fuck did you find that? this is what i had
>PLOT and Backstory
You and me, we're brothers in arms now.
Added to my insanely high backlog that I'll finish in around 20 years because that sounds interesting.
Yep, here's the title page from one of the new chapters in YM the 3rd magazine.
Speaking of which, MangaTraders is up again and they'll be adding user upload soon.
The page is down now, though.
Anyway, it's pretty short so I'll take a look today. I'm just finishing Even a Monkey can Draw Manga.
Blade of the Immortal. My favourite samurai manga is Takemitsu, but damn BotI fights are elder god-tier.
I've read enough stuff to realize it. We're talking about manga, not some actual literary genre. There is only one way to tell a story and that's from point A to point B. Stop pretending that the crap you read has an actual in-depth.
While her art may not be the best, it's something very pleasant and soothing to see.
Too bad this would never get an anime though.
>We're talking about manga, not some actual literary genre.
>There is only one way to tell a story and that's from point A to point B.
Two quick ways for me to tell that you don't know what you're talking about.
No, the magazine it's in hasn't had scans since the first two issues (september/october). So raws are available of the first two new chapters but nobody has scanlated them. I guess we'll be waiting for the tankobans.
These 2 pages are from the recent chapter. You can really tell Prison School threw Hiramoto off his game. Clyde doesn't look like Clyde.
It still looks pretty damn good, I think. Clyde looks somewhat consistent...except for the hair.
Hope he gets in full gear, though. Some of the shit he drew back in the day was amazing.
Clyde says fuck you.
>There is only one way to tell a story and that's from point A to point B
So apparently Prison School (and I guess MatDB too) is going on hiatus because of Hiramoto's health?
Me and the Devil Blues still delivers the most intense scenes in manga. He creates such a strong atmosphere.
I used to think that kinda look was just like photoshop brushes. But so much detail must be lost if it looks like that. Glad I'll be able to own it and gaze upon the art up close soon once Kodansha releases the 2-in-1 English volumes.
This is what you get when you have such a homogeneous culture, fucking seriously japan.
Boichi does it, and he had a chapter in SKR to explain how he did it.
I think so far there has only been a handful of big fights with small conflicts in between. The basis of the manga is simple, a powerful minority is rising against a relatively weak and oppressive majority. I'd have to say though, the art shines most in fight scenes, I wouldn't consider it god tier though.
