me too m8
whats the matter anon? now u wouldn't be able to masturbate to jaltoid porn?
If he just added the mustache it would be pretty accurate.
I don't know. Katie does a pretty good job too
No, real Ronnie looks and acts quite a bit different from comic Ronnie. For one thing he's actually very tall.
It's a pretty fucking sad wish fulfilment fantasy.
He could just as easily have drawn himself as a normal person and have a giantess with massive tits big enough for a person to sit between.
He has a lot of mental issues, but the inferiority complex on display there might be the root for most of the others.
I would until I couldn't.
How hard would you have to do her until you can't?
It's actually one of my favorite journal comics and what made me want to do my own.
Too bad I don't really have enough shit going on in my life right now.
Haven't kept up with it lately because I was waiting for lucky penny to finish so I could binge that and get back to what I came for in the first place.
Wow, you okay? Wanna talk about it champ?
m8, I think you have some stuff you still need to work out. You're among friends.
I'm not planning on it, dude, I'm just saying I would. Also, didn't know she's engaged, good for her.
Knowing me, my abs/core would get tired after a while and I'd start losing my rhythm.
Well that's a stupid dichotomy to create. I don't want to go all "MY STYLE", but you're complaining that someone's making something that's supposed to look cute look cute. If anything, that they can do that would make them a good creator, or at least, a creator that's doing well.
What makes Whomp endearing is the "realism" of the character, sure, but you can't just go applying that to everything when they aren't really comparable beyond being representative of the creator.
>you have a problem
>N-NO, YOU HAVE A PROBLEM! W-WANNA TALK ABOUT IT??
Always the same passive-aggressive deflection shit with JJ and his shills. Always the same, it's so goddamn sad. Does he instruct you to do this on the forums or do you just do it because it's a good way to silence the people who don't like his shit?
>tfw of all my friends I had the "cute" artstyle
>wanted to draw environments, intricate technology and monsters, and shit
Out of curiosity has any big professional comic book artist or cartoonist ever drawn a what they think they look like.
I lurked for a while and this is the only thing I found
There's more? post it
By the way, never Google image search 'Edd Gould'. Autismo paradise
It's not like you can't mix the two. Personally, some of the neatest stuff is when you've got a mix of impressive backgrounds and simplistic characters, creating a sort of synergy.
Though I could just be talking out of my ass.
How about Tracy Butler? I'm intrigued by what what this marmoset looks like.
That would mean that Tom would gain Edd's Cancer.
Pretty much what you'll expect.
This guy has to be one of the more assburger or OCD webcomic creators out there.
Huge swathes of his comic are devoted to walls of text explaining how everything in his universe works despite nobody but him caring.
It's not bad to want to flesh out your comic universe.
Because his comic is just a furry version of Least I Could Do (and yet he gets nuclear butthurt when this point is raised instead of admitting pandering it's furshit), and he is precisely like Ryan Sohmer in every single regard. but he somehow gets a pass despite his incredibly annoying smugness and the way he takes any critique as a personal attack and rushes to make a comic about it where he ridicules his supposed "attacker" in the most childish way possible.
Sohmer gets shit on for it. JJ gets praised.
The only difference is that Sohmer has no dudebros willing to protect him online, while JJ has plenty of fucked up furfags eager to protect him so he'll keep catering to their obscure fetishes.
It's more like he does it to the point where it hurts the narrative. It's not bad to include world building, but stifling the story just so you can have the characters go back and forth on how EXACTLY a gender changing gun works for several strips is bad.
>Caring this much
You need more chill in your life bro.
PA did it up right a couple years back.
i have always seen these 3 but never once have i seen irl tord
Pen Ward is vert frank about how he draws himself.
>White - because most middle class citizens that would draw a webcomic are white.
>Fat - because you have to spent time drawing, praticing, or consuming media related to your work, so you dont exercise a lot.
>Goatee/beard - Uhh...they look good sometimes, but many people go for it because its better than shave everytime.
>Glasses - you fuck your eys by reading a lot, even more on front of a computer.
Thats why so many webcomic artists look the same. You will also notice that girls are usualy like this too.
Hell, I think that a good portion of 4chan probably is like that too.
Its so good to be a /fit/ brazilian guy tho.
>that likes to cheat
I'm gonna need some more info on that.
>shitty cute chibis
step it up westerns
Plus he's started doing more risqué art which should please the people on /aco/.
now, how about trying to draw them in their style but how they really are
That girl has the same exact name as my cousin
>good creators draw tongue in cheek caricatures of themselves
>shitty ones make themselves look cute and moe
And manga artists always make themselves look like shit even though in real life they always go all-out in their appearances.
I hope you're not implying all manga is good based on that.
>Goodnight, my little farting Nora, my dirty little fuckbird! There is one lovely word, darling, you have underlined to make me pull myself off better. Write me more about that and yourself, sweetly, dirtier, dirtier.
By checking her pics I think she would look much better with good haircut and glasses.
>Handsome fit 10/10 guy
>Draws himself as fat ugly guy
And losing a few thousand pounts, and getting some sun, and better bone structure and growing a bit taller.
But yeah, THEN you'd have a lady truly worthy of being lusted after on /co/ because she draws a webcomic.
How many comic artists can draw machines as well as Range Murata?
Does it count if they're self insert characters?
Hirohiko Araki didn't draw himself like shit.
Nah, her weight is OK, she just need a better haircut, glasses and clothes. Those things can make a huge difference.
The problem is that what she wears makes her look worse instead of better.
FUCK FORGOT THE IMAGE
Fairly accurate, weird.
>mfw I read A Portrait of the Artist in highschool
>mfw I sympathized with him and saw a lot of myself in him
>mfw I admired him
>mfw he motivated me to write poetry
>mfw I found out he had a fart fetish
I honestly expected the chick to look like pic related.
You stupid asshole, your even more gullible than me.
There's an important lesson to be learned from this thread. If someone draws an avatar of themselves in their work, it is often inverse to their actual appearance, though sometimes it goes so far beyond reality that it betrays their inhuman level of autism instead (examples from the thread included):
Cute/Funny/Attractive/Badass idealized avatar = Ugly motherfucker whose actual appearance screams "I've got nothing to show for in my life except my webcomic", often obnoxious, overly-sensitive and tumblr-tier drama queens as well (Jaltoid, 90% of all webcomics with self-inserts)
Ugly/Stupid/Incompetent/Weak/Generally self-deprecating caricature of author = Normal-to-attractive person who has low self-esteem and/or has no qualms about making fun of themselves, usually normal-to-amusingly-odd in personality (Ronnie, Katie Tiedrich)
Inhuman/Animal/Alien/Whatever the fuck avatar = Neckbeard/dyed-hair landwhale abominations who makes even the dumbest and ugliest of category 1 look like winners and sex symbols, guaranteed to be batshit insane (Dobson, Dan Shive, the entire furry fandom)
The only time I'd say have an alias is if you do some porn, but do other stuff too so your search history is relatively clean. And that's only if you want to get hired somewhere down the line and care about that kind of thing.
Not when he's put his actual caricature in the show several times. He's even in the season 2 opener.
That's a bit much.
That can differ between person to person.
My god I know so many girls who still talk just like that
B-but anon, that was Fred in college...
Looks like Store brand Egoraptor.
Wonder if his wife is still ayy lmao.
Madeline Rupert of Sakana does it pretty well.
She focuses on capturing her expressions rather than her features. Simultaneously, she doesn't attempt to self-glamorize, as she renders herself as a lumpy, alligator-mouthed rectangle. The resulting character feels authentic to the person, even if it doesn't match said person's likeness.
Not the anon you're replying to- and this is only tangentially related- but I'm 6'1 and I'd gladly be half that height if it meant I could be a halfling living in Hobbiton.
That's a comfy fuckin' life, my man.
Hans Christian Andersen, the author of the majority of the world's most beloved fairy tales, many of which later became the basis for many of the most beloved Disney films (most lately "Frozen" adapted from his novel, "The Snow Queen", was also a chronic masturbator who died a virgin.
He habitually fell in love with everyone who showed him any kindness, male or female. For a while he attempted to court the daughter of a theatre owner, at the time he wrote her constant letters (several a day) and on most of them, as well as every page in his diary, he noted if he had jerked off with a little "x". Every x he made meant he has beat the meat while writing, or that same day.
Some of his diary pages goes along the lines of:
"Monday, rested at Oersted manor. Dinner at the parlour and entertained with my new poems. Saw the cleaning girl, just turned 15 they told me. Some beautiful tits on her though. I should care to see her mothers too. xxxxxxxx"
>first guy in this thread to look cooler in real life.
I tend to not draw myself because I'm not really good at it.
>It's a pretty fucking sad wish fulfilment fantasy.
>He could just as easily have drawn himself as a normal person and have a giantess with massive tits big enough for a person to sit between.
Both of those are wish fulfillment fantasies. And why is that a bad thing anyway?
I had one 4 years ago, but then i stopped using it because i realized it was kind of shitty
Why do I see so many people mistake the Snow Queen for a full sized novel? It wasn't, it was just a little longer than some of his other stories, but it was just a short story.
Also I'm seriously considering keeping a masturbation journal now.
This is how Hirsch actually draws Hirsch
made this on new years im pretty sure
It was a reaction to people laughing at him when he used to draw himself as a person, but much better looking than he is in real life. So he wanted his avatar to e something ridiculous to spite them, and now everyone just laughs at him for deciding he's a carebear.
Anthony Clark from Nedroid is pretty accurate at least.
Okay, I show you mine.
I look like a toad,
I use it to make reaction images when I'm bored
It's ok, Gunnerkrigg Court is terrible
>good looking people draw themselves ugly/deformed
>ugly people draw themselves cute
>does anyone have Junji Ito's self-portrait
he has an entire manga about himself
Self esteem. People who are fine with how they look can make a self-deprecating author avatar bringing attention to one or more of their flaws. But someone who's self conscious about their flaws will make something that's a more generically cute version of themselves because they don't want to call more attention to what they think makes them ugly.
You mean R63?
But it's pretty obvious that he updated his avatar. He even put it in his comic!
I don't know if Masamune Shirow did this but whoever did gets close to Range.
I am 5'8".
I recently dumped a woman who was 6', enormous tits, and a huge ass for not really any reason at all.
Honestly I think I am starting to lose my libido or something despite being 20 years old. I was never comfortable or good with women, and now I don't even find them attractive, at least not for very long.
I know this isn't a blog, I don't know why I'm saying this.
Could be worse.
I could just twirl that beautiful stache all day
>Not posting a picture showing Andrew's luscious DSLs.
I tried that, I'm not sure about it yet.
I really didn't enjoy it, but the guy that fucked me was pretty ugly so I probably just wasn't into it.
I have almost entirely stopped watching porn.
what about the uggos who draw themselves as uggos
let's take a moment to talk about Anita Sarkeesian avatar/PJ in Towerfall ....
>thread about comic artists and how they draw themselves
>you decide to zero in on one offhanded post about height
>"But keep on thinking you're better than me, anon ;^)"
What does Oglaf look like?
I know they live in Utah but that's it.
>Draws herself with a huge ass
>mfw it's actually accurate
He's the most powerful swordsman in the world probably
nah m8. That kind of details aren't presented in her style. If you go there, this is more accurate but now is not her in her style.
>she is jewish
Hoho, you'd think so wouldn't you. But she's Armenian. Literal scum so horrible even gypsies despise them. She goes into atomic butthurt if you call her a Jew.
She also thinks the Armenian genocide really happened. Call her a Turk and watch the fireworks.
Well, watch as she blocks you in any case.
Yeah he did an advert series of limited edition tees that were for the Utah Steak and Tits bar and grill two years or so ago.
Part of me wants Oglaf to not come out public and just keep drawing inane shit.
No, Jon's girlfriend is actually at least semi-cute from an objective standpoint and not an alien looking motherfucker that I still want to rape and impregnate for no apparent reason.
I think Jontron's gf is actually kind of cute.
Every girl wants to look like Zooey, even Zooey wants to look like Zooey she's been riding the look forever now even though she knows she's getting too old for it (35 coming on 40). It's just a question of when the next Zooey will show up to bump her out permanently.
Luck is the giver, time the taker.
I'm laffin but I'm doing 5'5" myself.
Swear I passed by someone a full head shorter than me once who had a gf tho. Maybe I was just imagining it.
I mean that's just not possible, right?
>btfo'd by a manlet
>so booty bothered he has to post an anime reaction image
It's okay, anon. We can't all have gfs ;^)
It's a technique called "The Clear Line," it's seen a lot in early works like TinTin and very often in manga. It's to capture the beauty of the world and the simplicity of the characters make them much more relatable.
I thought he was wearing this hat at first, which helps with the vague asian feeling I think
