I couldn't find anything like this in the catalog, so I'll be making a general art thread! Post art you like in this thread. No other rules or genres. Just art you like.

Been watching any animation movies (japanese or otherwise) recently?
I didn't find a suitable thread so I figured I'd start one. It's strange that we don't have this thread yet anyway.
I recently watched "The boy and the beast" and "The girl who leaped through time", really good stuff. The same director of Summer Wars.
What have you been watching lately rolls?

I remember watching a rip of the movie when it first came out. Someone shot it in a movie theater or something, but I still got to watch the movie on youtube. I remember that memory very fondly.

There's also an offshoot called "The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan". I've never seen it, and it's been so long since I've seen Haruhi. It was one of my first animes.

>The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan
I've actually seen that series, but sadly I didn't find it to be that good. The new Nagato in that series was too clumsy and moe I guess. I liked the version of her in the world of the Disappearance of Haruhi more. While she was shy and nervous, she wasn't nearly as dumb or as irrationally shy as in the spin-off. The best part of the spin-off was the actually the "Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan" arc in episodes 10-13 in which the personality of the old Nagato from the original series comes back for a bit.

Yeah the Yuki-chan anime kinda sucked. Sad case because I even watched Haruhi for the first time ever in preparation for it, since it somehow passed me by back when it was actually popular. At least watching all of endless of 8 in one sitting getting progressively more drunk while texting a friend was a fun experience.

 No.812

Watched Padak. It follows the small society formed in a restaurants fish tank as they try to escape or cope with their eventual death. The film gets pretty depressing as multiple main characters die trying to escape or get served as food, with he implication they're still alive. The CGI animation is a passable telltale games level, but it really shines with the short 2D animated songs. Although the songs are were the film gets somewhat un subtle, the most blatant being the end song that out right states the movies thesis.

The most interesting part about the movie is that it's entire point was to be an anti-fishing, or even vegan, movie yet it isn't over the top in how it expresses those themes, outside the songs. It doesn't come off as patronizing and the movie is fully enjoyable even if you disagree its points.

I don't even smoke cigs, only got them cause I smoke a pipe (as in, actual tobacco one) like once a month or less.

I gotta say though, you wouldn't believe how satisfying that model is to use. Nothing like a bic, not really like a zippo either. Sometimes flick it open just to feel how nice the mechanism is. That clunk.
Got them for like $5 each at an army surplus store.

Hi sushi rolls. I got thinking about Katawa Shoujo recently - say what you will about the game (personally I'm very fond of it) but I think it's really impressive that a group from 4chan came together to make something like it. It got me wondering - what would Sushichan make? Would it be a visual novel, or maybe an OVA of sorts? Whatever it would be, I imagine it would be something you could fit into the iyashikei genre. I'm not like outright suggesting we start something, I don't know enough about how many people browse this site or how many creative types we have. I just wonder if anyone else has had the thought.

A VN would be easier than an OVA for sure.
The key part is organization though. Katawa Shoujo did not get serious until a small group of people moved off 4chan and made their own forums to actually work on it.

When the economy tanks, more people go to trade schools or study STEM as opposed to art. Studying art is seen as a bad financial decision. What kinds of cultural effects do you think this has, when art and literature are seen as frivolous?

My mom studied art because it's supposed to be enriching, even though it's not all about career goals. I was basically forced into a STEM major for economic reasons. It has a very clear career path, but that's about it.

Or do you think some good things can come of it?

I think the average IQ of an artist has dropped because only passionate and stupid go into art. 70% of those in art colleges are often stupid because unless you got to the cream of the crop art school most art college are degree mills. A lot of people I see going to art schools are the 'I wasn't really sure what to do in college (I'm a slacker with no fore thought), but my friends said I was good at art (they usually are a big fish in a small pond, lack a grasp on fundamentals, and turd polished their way to 10,000 Instagram followers) and I like art (they like doodling art for their forgiving audience that lets them slack on their comics month on end, refuse criticism, and start shit. They would burn and crash in an actual job), so I'll go to an art school'. The only places willing to accept these types are degree mills who wont really prepare them. Stuff like pic related want to make art their career
The other 30% know what their doing and if they get into a top college they can connect enough so they can get the job they want. The other half art stuck on instgram/youtube as hobbyist who will have hard time getting professional work because they lack connections. If you look black comics, cartoons, and the like were a wild west, but now it's don't have '50 connections? Go away'.
The biggest effect I see is the 'starving artist donate to my ko-fi' will increase. As I said 705 of artist are stupid so they will suck at budgeting their limited funds, get fired from any real job, and refuse to listen to criticism. A lot of kids get high off their blind fanbase giving them commissions, but aren't ready when they become 20 and selling pic related isn't a good career choice.
This is all the digital art, and not the modern art community.

inevitably the whole trade school meme is going to self implode because the reason trade schools were so cheap, and trade pay decent, is because nobody was going to them in the first place. Now that trade school is starting to become a popular option due to redditors constantly shilling it, the pay will decrease and the price of the schools will increase because of the increased supply of students.

 No.671

To many people will cause a bubble to burst like the other sushi roll said, but we also can't forget what trade does to the body. Being a welder, constructor, or lineman sounds good till all that hard work- climbing, carrying, smog - catches up to you in your late 30's to early 40's. Do you know how fucked the economy and the children will be one they're stuck caring for for their parents at age 40? Also trade people are hit the hardest when the economy tanks if I recall correctly

Studying art is a bad financial decision because a) everything you need to know is available for free online and b) art isn't a subject that school teaches well. It's a subjective medium where improvement means better technique as opposed to better results, and where you do most of your learning slowly by trial and error

Well, the mangaka calls it's a "fetish manga" and it's almost a foregone conclusion that an anime adaptation of a series will have more pandering. But I don't feel they've necessarily overdone it. Maybe the voice acting accentuates the effect but Sen makes some suggestive faces in the manga as well. It isn't wholly innocent at any rate.
