Murata stream drawing right now
His stream won't load at all for me, but it was working last time a few days ago. I'm at a different place now so maybe my internet is a bit slower but I just get a black screen and the loading bar at the bottom but nothing happens at all.
Can't figure this shit out
Viewers. I reccomend avoiding chat unless you want to see a bunch of weeaboos using honorifics and thinking about using bing translate to ask him questions (that he will answer in japanese so why even bother)
>redraw almost exactly the same
>repeat ad infinitum
there's a reason I never got too into art
Funny how people seems to always tell me the same, that I just erase and draw the same line, when I can clearly see the difference. Makes me wonder how much of an impact small changes like that have on the overall drawing for an average viewer.
huge changes, people see you change the line, but if they see the image the line can drastically change the perspective. It's kind of like a magic trick or an illusion. If you're shown it step by step it doesn't really trick you as much.
Like, how isnt any of the ink or shit from his pencils and pens beeing dragged over the paper from his hands?
When I drew as a kid this was a serious problem, do the pros use some special fast dry ink shit or do they simply not move their hands as it touch the paper?
He'll be using pro materials, which is probably better than most of your biro or cheap pen stuff.
Like >>135615574 says, he uses toilet roll to absorb excess ink, sometimes uses an hair dryer and he has the skill to know how to avoid it.
Something about Michael Jackson in horrible Engrish
Artist here, he is actually wasting time doing that.
Truthfully, regardless of what his intentions are, he is just wasting effort and energy doing the same thing over and over again, and he could have got it right on the 3rd time and left it alone.
There is a thing as under developed, and over developed.
As you can see him inking the artwork right now, it was a waste of time to erase and redraw the lines because now he is no longer following those lines, hes just making the pen strokes.
If you are leaving the artwork finished at pencil its best to make sure it looks correct.
If you are planning to ink, a sketch is fine, provided the ink fills in details and gaps later.
Thats why companies hire inkers and colorists, get shit done faster.
>chopsticks and a fountain pen.
You do realize that they, well pretty much all manga artists use a fountain pen right? Even American inkers do.
You know how to get the blood splatter effect in your manga?
Tab your fountain pen into ink, get a straw, have it cut at a slant. Blow a gentle wind and presto, blood splatter.
Similar you can just use gauze to help make texture, again, tab it into ink, dont over saturate.
He's using india ink pretty much.
I wasn't saying that using a fountain pen is unbelievable.
I was saying "of course real artists can use whatever because he's taken a fountain pen apart and glued the end to his chopsticks" which is something your regular joe wouldn't think of, but it's clearly best for him.
ah ok, forgive me anon, I am tired as shit, I am pretty much doing what he is doing, except Ive been up all night doing it and looking at things to keep my ass awake while I work.
To many people believe you need "high quality" art products to do good artwork, and its not true.
One time someone wrote in english asking if Murata could speak any english, and Murata responded in engrish saying he could only speak a little.
So can he read english or what?
I think I can understand why he does it.
Sometimes when I'm writing I keep erasing and rewriting because if it looks too messy it's frustrating.
It must be a perfectionist kind of thing.
English is taught in Japan at a very basic level, which is why you see English words written out every now and again. Speaking and reading foreign languages are two very different things too.
It's possible he can read English at a rudimentary level and understand basic meaning but not speak it.
You're a shitty artist, if you really think like that. No artist in the world can leave a bad stroke, they'll either put a bunch more to hide the mistake, or erase and draw another one. It's not about skill or energym it's about the overall feel of the drawing, so that it doesn't bug you later on.
I love how he just slams that paper around
I would much rather like to see him work on a spread like pic related and see the process of making something like this.
I wonder why the old man didn't tap that fine girl.
I have a question.
I've read all of the OPM manga chapters and watched all the anime episodes, but there's apparently still content that I haven't seen before.
Should I read the webcomic as well?
Sure, unless you would prefer to wait and see it with Murata's drawings. But you're missing a lot.
Because Murata was doing it quickly. Otherwise, everyone already knows the regular schedule. Unless you're one of the anons who always had to keep asking when the next chapter was.
I don't know if he'll be able to better appreciate just who Phoenix Man is if he reads the webcomic first or gets surprised when the manga finally gets to that point.
At the very least, just hold on and wait until the next update to the manga comes out first before diving into the webcomic.
Just some pages I never saw when reading through the manga, so I got confused by them
And people mentioned some Monster Association? Never heard of it
I read the chapters on mymanga
Ok, I'll check it out, thanks.
Or not? I guess I'll wait
So is there no point in reading the manga if I just read the webcomic, since that's ahead?
And, not to be annoying, what is the manga update schedule?
For a long time, if you read the webcomic you knew what was gonna happen in the manga, so most people just followed it for the art.
But recently the manga deviated from the comic. The writer is adding a bunch of the new stuff for the current arc, so even reading the webcomic won't mean you'll know what's coming.
The Monster Association is something that's gonna come up in the manga soon, by the way.
>Just some pages I never saw when reading through the manga, so I got confused by them
Not sure what you mean.
>And people mentioned some Monster Association? Never heard of it
Well, when Junior Centipede showed up, you'd know that there were a bunch of monsters cooperating with one another for some purpose. Next week will be when we'll officially be introduced to the Monster Association in the manga.
your reservations are with the lower quality drawings in the web comic as opposed to the better budgeted manga. right?
trust me, your eyes get use to it.
with that said, read both. while generally the same, there's big enough deviations that makes both worth it. Where as the Webcomic kinda went straight into Bang focus with garou and the monster association arc kinda shot straight into center stage, the manga gave the Elder Centipede arc to Metal Bat, and his awesome activity preluding the Monster Association arc. Centipede monster played way differently in the two versions
He's asking about the chat. It's implicit in his posts that he's listening to Murata talk, but he doesn't know what he's saying and needs to look up the chat for someone to translate for him.
Oh, Murata's back to drawing Pineapple and Mohican. Seems like the rhino monster might be toying with them. Out of the 3 new monsters, I'm liking his and Phoenix Man's designs. The sludge jellyfish doesn't feel as nice as theirs.
He spoke portuguese.
>Muito obrigado, ate logo.
Mfw the funny accent that he used during his talk made sound like a fully fledged portuguese.
