In terms of art alone, who is your favorite mangaka?
>>
you already posted him nigga, or maybe shuzo, even though people compare them a lot they are immensely different
>>
>>124499830
yoshihiro togashi
>>
>>124499830
you just posted him. asano inio has no competition. i think what he does is art
>>
>>124499919
I'm OP and my second favorite mangaka is also Shuzo.

Are you me?
>>
>>124499981
no, both of them have similar work and similar elements so it makes sense multiple people would love both of them

my third favorite is chica umino, so a huge difference after that

No I don't know, always wondered how some mangaka do that overly realistic shit, excluding people, like backgrounds, objects and whatnot, not counting the PunPun stuff because that shit's just obvious.

Like pic related, do you know exactly how they do it? And in this case, how much of it is not computer generate then? But hey either way man, art is art regardless of how they do it, we're not exactly judging their drawing skills here, just speaking about art preferences.

To be honest, besides Asano, maybe Tite Kubo. I love his characters and his clothing designs. He dominates proportions and emotions very well and can express a lot of little things through his character's design. Pic related look at their expressions and how it all flows.

His cover designs are some of my favourite ever, very little mangakas work with graphic design/typography in their artsyle, which is something I love too

I also appreciate his more minimalist approach to backgrounds, it looks cleaner and more aesthetically pleasing to me than a lot of mangakas that draw in a shitload of crap just for the sake of it. There's a lot of beauty in simplicity, and being able to work with it isn't easy.

He did want to become a fashion designer or a (minimalist) architect if he hadn't become a successful mangaka. He has mentioned many times that he loves minimalism.

Douman

>>124501884
Sorry, I thought I had mentioned body language too. Idk you might not agree with me and that's okay but even after 3 years of drawing uni I still think this guy is one of the best, at least in the mainstream wave. Also keeping in mind that unlike a lot of mangas with exceptional art, bleach is weekly, which means less time to plan, sketch and ink.

"Art" is too subjective for me. There are so many mangaka who are radically different in their styles but consider them genius. Saying X is better than Y is all too often apples and oranges.

Let me guess, you've read お休みプンプン and ソラニン due to coming across them on some /a/ manga recommendation list, have read little of anything else, and are merely parroting a common opinion?

Read more. There are so many beautiful manga out there is isn't funny. You are missing out on so much. Read ヨコハマ買い出し紀行 and カブのイサキ, 蟲師, 風の谷のナウシカ, 人間失格, 男大空, よつばと!, 住めば都のコスモス荘, 苺ましまろ - there is such a HUGE range of interesting and different styles that it makes absolutely no sense to make the sort of statement you just did.

That's because instead of just using the fucking romaji like a normal person you go out of your way to type it in fucking japanese, despite knowing that most people can't read that shit. So it makes you look like a retard who's just posting shit because he can.

It has nothing to do with being or not being able to read it, it's about you acting like a huge fucking pretentious retard about it.

>The artists that are strongly influenced by western cinematography (like Kaneko, Suehiro Maruo and Riyoko Ikeda) seem really interesting.

You should look into Takao Saito's stuff, the closest paneling to cinematography that I've seen.

>>124505190
I'll have to check out his manga, thanks for the recommendation.
>>
>>124505190
Is that really true? I haven't read a lot of Saito, but the gekiga guys in general were disproportionately cinema-freaks.
>>
>>124505065
Punpun and Solanin are Asano's most well-known works, at least on /a/.
>>
>>124505424

Takao Saito's major break was being chosen to pen the 007 manga adaptation, which was axed when the Estate started cleaning up loose ends after Fleming died. He started Golgo 13 immediately after. The guy's a pro, he knows that artist shouldn't sell themselves short, which is why he started his own studio and charges higher rates for his work. Consider the fact that Golgo 13 is one of the longest-running manga and it's still in serialization. If you want a crash course in cinematography, watch Lawrence of Arabia or something and then read his manga.

Takehiko Inoue will always be the mangaka who I think has more or less mastered the medium, but great artists like Miura and (Eyeshield 21) Murata (among many others) are respectable answers as well. Urasawa gets a special mention for his art I think. It's at the same time simple and complex.

Call me a nostalgia fag, but I love Katsuhiro Otomo's work.
Akira was visually pleasing from start to finish.

That unique atmosphere he provides in his work, the grittiness and shear detail of machinery and city scape, and the distinct realism in facial features will always hold a special place in my heart.
