/a/nons, I'm in a bind. I'm a comic artist, or rather, a struggling comic artist.
I sued to watch anime all the time when I was younger, so much so that I wanted to pursue it as a career.
Of course, the cold truth beared its ugly head, and I settled for just being a regular comic artist.
As the years have gone by, I've been watching less and less anime. And I feel like I've lost the inspiration. Maybe its because I'm getting older, maybe it's just that no new anime really appeals to me, or I don't know what I want to look for.
I need to be inspired again. I need an anime that has a journey, a character that develops well as a character over time, and a plot driven story.
I need something to love again /a/. Will you help a poor guy out?
>I'll just find someone else who will
>That's why I came here
Don't let the door hit you on the way out.
no /a/utist will be here to help you out, and you should already know that if you lurked more often. What you want to do is disguise a thread by saying xyz anime is the most deepest anime of all time and let the bickering sort them out.
No no, I wanted to follow my childhood dream of being a "manga-ka", [enter weeaboo, faggot, neckbeard comments here]
Of course comes the stifling truth that its very hard for an american to be even considered in the manga industry.
So I'm more interested in pursuing my career in indie comics
But anime has always been my inspiration, and I feel like I've lost touch with it.
I see /a/ is still acting like a bunch of elitists faggot.
Its funny because you guys have Naruto,Bleach,One Piece and Snk thread reaching bump limit in few hours.
Always make me laugh seeing a bunch of underage weebs trying to act tough
>/a/ is one person, all of you are posting in those shitty circlejerks!
This is what you sound like.
I would share my work, but I'm afraid that no one is going to appreciate it here. So I don't think I'd want to.
I don't know if its a cultural bias, but anything made by someone who is not Japanese, even if the style is very similar, ever seems to be deemed anime or manga.
I have made a webcomic, but its been months since I've updated it, and now I am wokrking on a series with a different writer, but at least I'm getting paid for this one.
I don't know about naruto/bleach and one piece threads since i have those filtered, but the snk threads are literally the same 50 persons posting over and over again. I wouldn't consider that a representative sample of /a/.
He is a guy that used to make gif animations on an animation forum and now a couple of years later is a bonafide animator working on anime like Space Dandy but he put hours into obsessively studying the work and techniques of nip animators.
>implying the majority of /a/non here are not into shounen shit
Yeah remember when everyone hated Naruto before it was over? Yeah I remember it was just a lie.Since then there not a single day without a Naruto thread.
>even if the style is very similar
That's because most american artists who use "manga-style" usually just do shitty big eyes and overuse the fuck out of 4-koma reactions instead of actually thinking about the benefits of manga style. For example, I've never seen an american comic, not even indie or webcomic, even try to properly use the action line style to enhance the look of motion or intensity in a movement. Also why does it matter if other people recognize it as anime or manga?
