What artstyle do you enjoy the most?
« on: January 31, 2016, 02:15:51 am »
We are all manga fans. But not all manga share the same artstyle. So I wanted to ask you all what artstyle do you enjoy the most? It doesn't have to be from a manga either. Video game art counts.

My favorite manga artists are Akira Amano, Kosuke Fujishima, and Yoshiyuki Sadamoto. There's more but I want to invite others to post their favorite manga artists or artstyle.

Akira Amano's art style (Hitman Reborn!, Psycho Pass) is quite original IMHO, the colors blend well, the characters always have a glow or shine to them, and I find them very attractive.



Kosuke Fujishima (Oh My Goddess!) is one of those artists that started out super generic and slowly created something very original. Its kind of funny seeing his early work if OMG! and how it evolved. But I digress, his style is still iconic in my eyes. Just looking at how he handles hair is really interesting. I can't stop staring at times.



Yoshiyuki Sadamoto is probably one of the lesser known, but I personally enjoy his work from Neon Genesis Evangelion. But I like his cover art more than his actual black and white drawings.

Nice choices, I really like Sadamoto's art and I was surprised by Fujishima's since I've only watched omg's anime.

Mine would probably be Katsuhiro Otomo, Takeshi Obata, and Akira Toriyama.

With Otomo his art style is very advanced for his era, and actually met with some criticism back then for being too realistic. Still, I think his art is amazing.
 

Obata's art in all of his work has always been amazing, but his latest work (while not an original story) show cases the old man's finest
(from Platinum End)


While Toriyama is copied way too much, his simple but perfect line work can never be reproduced.


Honestly though, I wouldn't want to draw like any of these artists; the art you make reflects your world, and no art style to this point has fitted with mine. Does anyone else feel that way?

Edit: By 'perfect linework' I mean that each line, and the way he draws them, brings his world alive.

I guess it's just me but I would at least like to draw similar to them with my own flavor. But those are great too. Obata is also another great artist. He definitely has a distinguish style I don't think anyone can copy.

It's all about expressing features that you enjoy in real life.

I've read and watched several interviews with manga artists and manga editors and they all say the same thing when it comes to advice: Copy your favorite artists but bend it to your own style over time. I guess by that they mean that it'll help you learn the basics of manga illustration, and by copy they refer to something called 'mosha' which is reproducing manga pages one by one. A lot of famous manga artists started that way so it should work, but I prefer not to since I'd rather not hinder my originality. But I still study other authors in their technique, but not their style.

If you had to practice 'mosha' on a manga, which one would you do it from?

If I copied someones artstyle as a start, I would probably try something closer to akira amano. I would of course try to slowly make it intobmy own artstyle and little by little go away from it.

If you look at shojo art, most of it looks the same.

OK I guess it's my turn. I have a really long list. But I will try to keep it at just 3 distinct artstyles that I get the most inspiration. Shirow Miwa, Jun mochizuki, and Oh! Great.


I absolutely love his artwork. It is what mostly helped me envision Lunacy and Terra Stregada. The colors are vibrant and always consistent. Provides a great atmosphere. I only wish that his covers expressed more of his unique artstyle.



Miwa Shirow is the very few mangas that I prefer reading on paper. The contrasting light and dark is too uneasy on the eyes when I see it on screen. with that said, he has the best Neo noir artstyle to date. I've read Big O manga and pales in comparison. Shirow miwa makes everything look!"awesome" and amazing. He has moved on to other series but his artstyle is still distinguishable. I'm just slightly upset he's making RWBY mmanga.



Oh! Great is something else. His character are really well drawn and full of emotion but I am more interested in his backgrounds and his mecha designs. I also like his sense of fashion. In most of his manga, he pushes the designs while not feeling unrealistic.

WOW. I was just thinking about Miwa Shiro but I forgot his name. I do remember him making Hatsune Miku artwork, but I should've remembered Dogs Bullets and Carnage.

Yukito Kishiro (Battle Angel), Katsuhiro Otomo (Akira), Masamune Shirow (Ghost in the Shell) stand on their own. I can't name some of the classic anime artists. The thing is that there is so much imitation that not much seems original to me. Satoshi Kon was trying to do Otomo to the point that if you told me that Otomo did Opus, I'd believe you.

I agree on imitation. For example, Pandora Hearts is not that unique. But inside it anyways. I don't think in the point is to list the most unique artstylem just the ones you enjoy the most.
