Matsumoto and Takahashi are my top 2.
Kaori Mori delivers the most delicious women.
Good taste, OP. Taamo draws some cute shit.
Kasai Sui, one of Mori's friends, does good work too.
Art looks similar, did they study together or something?
Boku no Hero's art style is really cool and the character design is great.
All I've heard are rumors they're close friends and even share staff, since they both publish in the same magazine.
Unrelated, but here's some Koume Keito.
As far as hot girls go I really like Toshihiro Kawamoto's character designs. He did all the delicious girls in Golden Boy but by far my favorite girl of his is Faye.
needs more blushing robot girls
this guy draws moeblobs but in a way that they hit all the right spots
Solid with cute girls without being too moeblobby or featureless.
There's just something i can't even put my finger on that makes me love anything he draws.
Nothing wrong with H. Redrop does have nice designs. I'm still in love with Napata's style. His breasts are absolutely gorgeous, and the softness of his characters is something I still admire
I also really like Shimimaru, his boyish girls are choice. Also I'm pretty sure Napata is a woman.
I love those sharp lines, looks especially nice in actual print.
I wonder how long it takes Miura to draw a single page.
I like Kubo's character designs, especially the fashion of course.
Let's not be plebs for one second and give the respect to the people who deserve it.
I really like Nichibros art style. He draws really cute girls.
And some of the boys
>mfw I open this thread for the first time and I already have a (You)
Art styles do not have to take a lot of effort to be appealing.
Also yoko's is probably one of my favorites
Matsumoto Jiro is my current favorite manga. Rough lines, clearly defined spaces, strong composition, attractive characters and atmosphere.
Sorry, don't wanted to quote that post.
Very nice art and character design. I found the story and characters alright.
So have dozens of other artists names. I'm sure it's easy to pick out the one name from this mess of replies when you already know it but if you don't know it already it's not quite as easy.
Maybe you should look at OP's quoted posts and figure it out from there. It's not hard to find it.
Art is very cute, but I sometimes wish he would draw more lighthearted stuff.
Junji Ito's women are mesmerizing in their beauty.
Leiji Matsumoto is great for that too. All his women are very elegant, some are even ethereal.
For cuteness I liked this guy, too bad the manga went full retard
Makoto Yukimura's art is absolutely fantastic
Goddamn you were just a bit faster than me because I took so long to find a page to post
That was a shitty image, here's another.
While it's not a great art-style by itself, I love the way the Yu-gi-oh art-style portrays people going mad
I really dig Rei Hiroes style
Katou Shinkichi really does it for me. I especially like how he draws faces so differently depending on the range we're seeing them at. It's not just like they're lower detail, the expressions seem to take on different connotations as well. It's like he chooses the distance of the "camera" based on how he wants to draw the characters, rather than the other way around.
What i like about Araki's Style is that it fits well with all that happens in Jojo.
The pic is from Part 7, but cluse-ups of DIO's face in the end of part 3 and the art in the middle of of part 4 were incredible
I hope you can forgive me for not /a/, but Kinu Nishimura is my favorite.
Who Samura here?
This. Kumeta is god. I also like Wakaki a lot but I want to see how his artstyle will evolve in his next works.
H-artist would be Raita for me.
Kumeta's style along with Masato Hisa's ultra stylized art happen to be my favorites.
What I like about Miura's monster designs are that they focus more on being disturbing and scary rather than being cool, every concept artist and their mother always picks the same old tired insectoid hairless monsters for their enemy designs, how about a a monster made out of penises?
Matsumoto is pretty fantastic, almost everything he does looks amazing.
I read Red Colored Elegy just a couple days ago, I felt terrible afterwards.
>Nihei will never design the cybermen
>Nihei will never work on Alien 5
My nigger. Literally 11/10. It doesn't get any more sexual. The author knows what she's doing.
Douman. Not just his actual style (although that is still bloody fantastic) but the way he tells stories. Especially the way people just casually get dismembered all the time. That never gets old.
>those hand painted stillshots
Texhnolyze has the best art direction I've ever seen.
>Nobody posting best art style.
Tough choice between this and Mohiroh Kitoh's style.
I love Samura. His pencil shading is amazing. Some of his best work I think is from his ero-guro artbooks. I wasn't surprised at all to find he had actually been in a prestigious fine arts university when he dropped out to do manga.
Great taste. I'm actually reading through Narutaru for the first time right now, even though I fucking hate that the Dark Horse releases read left-to-right.
As for me, I'd probably go with Nihei, Ishida or Asano for my favourite style, though lately Ishida's art seems to be getting quite a bit rougher.
Poyoyon Rock character designs are objectively the best. All other opinions are incorrect.
>I fucking hate that the Dark Horse releases read left-to-right.
Yeah, that was a pain in the ass when I was reading it as well. If you haven't read it you should check out Bokurano. It's my personal favorite of Kitoh's works.
Asano would have been my third choice. I can't say I'm familiar with Nihei or Ishida though.
For fuck's sake, it's been answered in this thread already several times. Fuck off.
Since when do people indulge this sort of saucefagging on /a/?
I keep seeing so many source requests immediately answered recently. It only encourages newfriends to be lazy.
Truly the greatest art masterpiece of our generation.
Bokurano was actually my introduction to Kitoh. Since then, I've also finished that one-shot of his about planning a murder and I've read through most of what's released of NMM. His art aside, Kitoh's twisted stories always intrigue me.
Nihei does absolutely fantastic bio-monsters and his architecture is always top-notch. Blame! is a good place to start if you want to focus on his art since there's very little dialogue compared to a normal series.
Shin Takahashi is my favorite. I love the way he draws his characters. If only he didn't add rape to everything.
>Blame! is a good place to start if you want to focus on his art since there's very little dialogue compared to a normal series.
But what dialogue there is is important.
The number of times people say that have no clue what it's about is surprisingly big
Certainly, it's not a series you can speed-read and expect to understand despite appearances suggesting so.
I suppose a recent favourite of mine has been Minoru Furuya. I got into his work though a thread about Wanitokagegisu, and ended up powering through both Himizu and Ciguatera (pictured) in one night. He's not exactly great at writing endings, but his art always has this good balanced of comedic elements contrasted with a more realistic tone to give his shocking moments more impact.
I'd like to get into Sidonia but I really don't like high school drama manga/anime, people describe it as "accessible" which is usually synonymous with "tries to please everyone". Does it ever have the same mysterious sci fi plots that Blame! had?
Ogawa Maiko's artstyle looks comfy as fuck
What is it about burgers that makes girls cry?
Love in hell's style is pretty nice.
Some sort of runemoons because what the hell, batoto.
Jesus, is this really from the to love ru series? Haven't read it but damn it really is quite lewd.
Also, no love for the euro influenced mangaka? Loved those underground manga anthologies that did/would crop up from time to time.
Yousuke is really good, and I don't feel he gets enough attention. I feel like he has this great balance between classic manga style and this really vivid expressiveness, he has also has a lot of impact, like he carved everything out on a wood block or something.
I highly suggest giving it a try. It is not a high school manga at all, though there are some light romance-type tropes, most of that is only in the beginning, and many are heavily subverted later in the manga.
It definitely has a good helping of unsettling sci-fi elements and body horror. The Gauna are legitimately terrifying.
While it definitely attempts to appeal to a larger audience, it is still very much Nihei. I like it at least as much as most of his other works, with the possible exception of BLAME! which I still probably like a bit more.
I'm a big fan of Maruo. They can be hard to find, but I've ordered some vintage copies of GARO magazine from the late 60s and early 70s from Mandarake and they are awesome. I love a lot of that early avant-manga/gekiga style weirdness. Some varied and interesting styles to be sure.
Ever try akatako? Good stuff over there though I'm kinda wary of the prices and origins for some of the things there.
Wish I could read moonrunes lots of great avant-garde and artsy stuff I wouldn't mind having my hands on.
It's like high school for like 2-3 chapters. Then it's almost pure SDF. However since it is more "accessible" a mixture of several archetype characters condensed into one is going to join the cast. You will either love her or hate her guts.
Were the Vikings as strong as the manga portraits them?
I love Morita Masanori's stuff. It just has so much style.
>new scans never
I like Maruta but he has got to work on his chicken legs.
Namori draws in the cutest , girliest style there is. It's all so fluffy and adorable, it's one of my favorites.
Ponkan8 and ruri miyahara (bokura wa minna kawaisou, love lab) take the cake for me. also like redjuice and that guy who writes rail wars
Never purchased anything from them, but they do seem to stock a lot of cool shit.
I'm still not that good, but my moonrune reading is at least at the point where I can hack my way through reading most things, especially if I take my time. I really like owning physical copies, but digital ones are so much easier for me to read because I can use ocr software to cheat and read difficult stuff a lot faster.
I love this semi-realistic look that most Seinen manga have.
Didn't like her style at first when I began H&C, but it grew on me quickly.
Easy, Yoshitoshi ABe
can still remember when I saw his art for the first time, almost orgasmed
Not sure if it's my favorite but I like Ika Musume's art.
All mangaka who use a brush are god-tier. True story.
everything about this manga is fucking sublime. i really hope the manga-ka does something similar in her future work
There's just something about varying your line-widths that makes your linework really come to life.
Okay, you're missing my point now, nigger. I give up.
Have some more Hana.
He's not brought up often but Atsushi Kaneko is one of my favorites, especially because he usually sticks to black and white instead of using large amounts of screentone or filters.
This is a was published in a magazine that caters to seinen audience and drawn by Akira Hiramoto when he was still shitty. You don't know shit.
I really like Kano Yasuhiro's stuff but they all get axed.
Why did this have to end? ;_;
Kuroda is too good. I'm going to buy Appleseed Alpha even if it's only digital.
>we will never get this
His linework is so damn clean, and he draws the fluffiest hair.
To be fair nihei set the bar stupidly high with Blame!
I like Asumiko Nakamura's manga but prefer her old style. The stuff she makes now looks good but it's really sterile in comparison to when she used to experiment and draw really loosely.
Anything Shaft / Shinbou / whoever else is in that team does.
>shooting the gun on even the lowest setting would probably kill me from the force of it
I want a GBE
Hayami Rasenjin is pretty good.
Reminds me of Toriyama.
In terms of craftsmanship, they both look like trash. Nihei is not a very good artist at all.
Even his designs are just Giger rehashes.
Blame! is just a poorly told story wrapped around Nihei's inability to draw anything coherent or consistent.
Hajime ueda have a cute art.
I don't know if he still draw a manga beside FLCL and Q-Ko Chan
>peasants treating demographics like genres
I really like Tsuruta Kenji's art. His girls all have the same face though.
Anyone have the Mentos story? In particular, in the third chapter
when the dog rips our her womb and her friend is stopping the bleeding with his dick, I genuinely like the way her eyes are drawn. That chapter went from weird guro to adorable vanilla in three seconds flat.
He has been drawing males and call it girl for a while now, whats stopping him from doing another way around?
I recently discovered pic related because of the crowd funded anime they're trying to put together. It's very different from what I usually favor, but I think it's very charming.
Even though he does only H stuff, Shindol is an AMAZING artist.
Stuff like this, more humanistic but sensual. Big eyes, bangs, long hair, and cuteness. He also has a huge variety.
>manga aimed at specific demographics can't have certain characteristics to them
I wish I didn't have to argue about something so stupid. /a/ is very stubborn sometimes.
No, but you sure sounds like one.
Kotoyoshi Yumisuke is one of my favs. Also, hard to find SFW.
I like Toriyama's artstyle basically because it has the only eyes i can actually draw
lets go back to what you originally said in
>I love this semi-realistic look that most Seinen manga have.
most seinen manga don't have the look you like
it is an artistically diverse demographic target
you are objectively wrong
I love how this artist draws kiss scenes.
I actually have no idea. I remember the original thread was on /v/ years ago and some anon posted a demo of something he was working on (the gif)
I could be completely wrong because of how long ago it was but oh well
Good to see walking simulator seems to be alive though
Found it. For some reason, I really like how her eyeballs are completely defined beneath the lids.
Too bad he no doesn't really do manga or it seems anything else of late.
Reborn's art style was so good. I just wish the story was better too
Suprised no one posted Nakaba yet, his backgrounds and character designs are godly.
Obligatory walking in class early, see this, what do.
I always loved Kano's art. Specially his girls. Too bad he got so bad luck with the writing.
Wonder if he'll ever make manga again ;_;
I loaned my friend my copies of this and never got them back....
well he is an ex yakuza
yea, tattoos are more common but the traditional style yakuza tattoos would be more taboo than a sleeve or chest piece.
I've lost so much of my collection from lending them to ex's or friends that move out of state, it hurts to think about. Im really bad with thinking that they will remember to give shit back.
I just read through bleach at the request of a friend this past week, I can see why people hate it, but I did like the art style itself.
Kubo is lazy as fuck and doesn't into backgrounds or panel layout, but it's clear he has a lot of emphasis on style in this manga.
He's working on one right now called Kiss X Death
Just caught up with this today, love it.
I remember in one of the early chapters Kurosawa mentioned that the 74th ranked assassin was on the island, do you think his number is also a reference to that (in addition to his powerlevel)?
Geez, why would I commit such a horrible action?
The breasts are overly large, yet still alluring.
I sure am. Favourite artist hands down.
Irie Aki's stuff is the perfect blend of modern sensibilities with that old school character design, can't get enough of it.
Tomi Akihito too.
I'm actually surprised that only one anon mentioned Yoshitoshi ABe.
Besides him, Sadamoto Yoshiyuki and Nihei are great artists.
I like everything influenced by Rumiko Takahashi.
I like chihiro (kemonomochi) style
