Are there any other good manga/anime with an unconventional/nontraditional art style?
I'm a really big fan of Mob Psycho 100 and I absolutely love the art.
Depends on what you mean by nontraditional
anyway, Takemitsu Zamurai is a masterpiece.
You could download the old scans of HxH if you're looking for more scribbles.
i liked freesia's art it was kind of grungy but suited the story
Are you stupid? What else would it be? If you're going to make a shitty rec thread you could at least bother to google the recs. It's probably the best one in this thread too.
Funny you should say that.
Holy shit, this looks amazing.
Thank you anon
I don't know if I hyped it too much because of the positive comments I had seen about it here, but I wasn't blown away by the art like I thought I would be. It's certainly beautiful though.
...Well, fuck me sideways. I'd always thought OPM was where ONE had started out.
I'm still not sorry for making the thread, though. There's a lot of cool shit that's been posted that seems right up my alley.
Soil is pretty interesting, too bad there's still 3 or so untranslated volumes.
This. The story is ok too.
Anything by Nobuyuki Fukumoto.
But I think there's a difference between art style and lack of artistic ability. Fukumoto has a unique art style but is still a technically competent artist. ONE just doesn't know how to draw well. If it really was just a matter of style than why have Murata remake OPM?
First time I'm seeing Junko Mizuno on /a/, her art is quite something.
>ONE just doesn't know how to draw well
Correction: he doesn't know how to draw /characters/ well. He's very good at everything else.
As an anon in a Mob Psycho thread put it:
>I think MOB made me realize that the elements of drawing comics & anime that people ignore, like composition, facial expressions, poses, contrast and paneling, getting atmosphere across through pure drawings etc are THE most important parts of visual storytelling.
>Technical skill helps make you into a timeless genius if you have all that AND technical skill, but as far as creating enjoyable, iconic stuff the often-forgotten skills are more important.
There's also taking into account the fact that OPM the webcomic was done in a shitty manner as part of its parodying shonen battle manga, and then was redrawn for the broader crowd of consumers.
The backgrounds and environments always look solid. He clearly has a grasp on perspective.
Also, take a look at this cheetah. Every now and again FKMT flexes his artistic muscles a bit. He obviously knows what he's doing.
Not saying ONE isn't good at composition or visual storytelling, but he lacks the fundamentals of good art. He needs serious work on anatomy, perspective etc. It's like he's good at making manga but fails at the basics of general drawing.
Good thing ONE's a manga artist, then.
I still don't feel like you give him enough credit, though. How "technical" his art gets often varies from scene to scene.
>Good thing ONE's a manga artist, then.
That doesn't give him a pass.
ONE is a bit like SnK's Isayama. SnK is Isayama's first manga and you can tell how damn rough his art was at the start, but he has reedeeming qualities. If you look at his prototype, it's literally way worse than ONE's art.
He's improved fast, but still needs to put in a lot of work. So does ONE, but his improvement is slower.
Just look at the way the panel lines are drawn, the sound effects as well, everything is so cohesive and expressive.
If you've ever taken any interest in drawing you'd understand that ONE isn't nearly as bad and amateurish as people making him out to be and his art has plenty of redeeming qualities. Drawing isn't as easy as it looks kids, even the shittiest of arts.
