Hello, sushi! Lately I've been craving some really cute moe SOL manga. Can I get some recommendations? (bonus points for 4koma, shoujo-ai, yuri)

Examples: Komi-san, Watamote, Comic Girls, Senryuu Shoujo.

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.

I don't know if this would fit better with /tunes/ but artwork for albums could fit here.

But anyways, here's a thread for album artwork you really like.

These were used for the inner sleeve artwork for Talk Talk's 1986 album "The Colour of Spring, of which James Marsh did the artwork for.

Here I will drop my anchor in fertile ground.

Here we really know what we are talking about, because we have experienced the trembling and the awakening.

Drunk with energy, we are revenants thrusting the trident into heedless flesh. We are streams of curses in the tropical abundance of vertiginous vegetation, resin and rain is our sweat, we bleed and burn with thirst, our blood is strength.

The work of creative writers, written out of the author's real necessity, and for his own benefit. The awareness of a supreme egoism, wherein laws become significant. Every page should explode, either because of its profound gravity, or its vortex, vertigo, newness, eternity, or because of its staggering absurdity, the enthusiasm of its principles, or its typography.

So I noticed recently that while a lot of people here do some realy great art, no-one seems to be writing stories with it. Creating comics is one of the best ways to improve because it forces you to look at all areas of art, it keeps you motivated since you have a task with a foreseeable endgoal, and it poses lots of creative challenges. Don't just think of it as a means to be gooder at artisting though.

Don't think you have to nail regular drawing before you can start doing comics. If you think that, you will never do anything. You don't have to be good, you just have to be creative. Try not to just do moeblobs standing still and talking about how their mangaka is such a qt, make your images dynamic and try to communicate something like a story or a feeling.

There's a great series of blogposts called '18 tips for comic book artists'. http://www.williamstout.com/news/journal/?p=3806
(All those images are there for a reason, study them!)

Hey sushis! My bf is an incredible artist and he's always wanted create a graphic novel. He's working on typing the story out and developing characters before he starts though. I think he should just start with what he has already but he's a bit of a perfectionist lol. He works a full-time job so this is just a hobby and he doesn't have much time to work on it. Is there anything I can do to support him or make it easier for him? I'd love for him to reach his goal.

so what do you sushis think about it? honestly i think it's just right lifestyle for me
would you do something like that and where would you go?

I personally have no real intent of moving out of the US, mostly because I have zero clue where I would really move to.

But I agree with >>401, I'd like to hear why Western Europe is a lost cause.

Not a joke, but I acknowledged that Brazil is rough compared my own nation. I guess it's better to say that I didn't put much thought into moving, something I don't intend to do.

>I'd love to be able to live in places like the US
When most people think of the US, they're thinking of the big coastal cities. The cost of living there doesn't really allow for a digital nomad lifestyle unless you're a rich trust fund kid like >>396 said. The rest of the US has plenty of nature, but no jobs and no facilities.

>>399
Western Europe has the same cost of living problem. If you have connections to find cheap housing, can handle couch surfing, or have a paid scholarship, it's pretty chill here. I've met plenty of exchange students and expats from the US and Easter/Southern Europe who say they prefer it here.

South-East Asia seems to be the biggest digital nomad hotspot, because a freelance wage can easily support a comfortable lifestyle there.

What're your favorite books?

I could perhaps be called an artsy snob for this, but one of my absolute favorite novels is House of Leaves by Mark Danielewski. I've always found the concept of labyrinths to be fascinating, as well as that of the inherent uncertainty in the image of reality presented to us by our sensory perception. This book features those two themes quite prominently, and explores them to a depth I've not seen in any other books I've yet read.

This next one might also reflect questionably on my character, but nonetheless I greatly enjoyed American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis. I've struggled a lot with recurrent depersonalization, feelings of dread, and a general impression of isolation from those around me. Since the book addresses all of that, it resonated with me in that regard–though, not so much with some of the other stuff it describes.

I also love tons of H. P. Lovecraft's and Jorge Luis Borges's work, but those are predominantly short stories, not novels.

Hanta Yo by Ruth Beebe Hill is another favorite. Translating the book from English to Lakotah and back was a great literary choice. Really felt immersive, which was good because the plot spans generations and the reader really can't lean on a character throughout the duration of the book.

Long time fan of HP Lovecraft, Jack Kerouac, and Hunter Thompson. The wave speech in Fear and Loathing had me me feel some type of way I never got over.

But my latest favorite has been The Unnoticables by Rob Brockway. Despite being very modern and simply written at times, the story is both gripping and strikes a chord with my inner punk rocker.

Brockway's story is both a look at life's evolution since the 70's to the 2010's and does so with a hint of comedy and a heap of cosmic horror that pleases the Lovecraft fan inside me.

That sounds like a fun thing to do actually. Got a small one I inherited from my grandfather. It is the kind that can fold out so you can sit on it.

A compact fishing rod, pans, a knife, and a tarp, and I pretty much have all that I need for a weekend in the woods. + some extra food rations in case I can't find any fish. My sleeping bag might be compact enough to fit in it too. Even just a day trip would be nice.

I recently figured out that I absolutely love dark, Gothic stuff, be it art, TV or music.

The exact name of this peculiar genre I don't know, but when I find examples of it I lap it up. It's solemn in tone and touches frequently on death, darkness and the Unknown. The kind of thing that makes you feel alone, desperately alone. Wandering alone through a deserted field in the cold and rain towards the light, the single, lone house on the hill containing the single, lone farmer. There's something comfy in that for me.

Anyway, here are some examples/recommendations:
Over the Garden Wall is the best example in TV or cartoons. I've watched it at least three times.
This album I picked up - Stuck on a Sunday. Webm related.
This kind of art: https://art.vniz.net/en/ - including some by Zdzislaw Beksiński, which has been posted here.

Does anyone else like this macabre art? Does anyone have any recommendations?

Hey rolls, do you know any "technically" unique or really unusual animus or mangos? Unique in the way that it contains (almost) no text, or maybe consists purely of text (inb4 books), or is a webcomic with moving images and sounds.

Also works with a rare concept, do you know any? Like written in reverse chronological order or even disregarding time, or on a whole different plane of comprehension.

It's a pretty literal interpretation of what you said, but Angel's Egg has almost no dialogue while still managing to be deeply expressive. Mind Game is quite unique, as well, since it switches constantly between different art styles. If you want something really wacky, try that. Cat Soup is another great example of a story being told without dialogue, mostly through a series of metaphors and dream sequences. I've not seen all of them, but Shigeru Tamura's work probably fits into the same category as Cat Soup: Glassy Ocean, Minor Blue and A Piece of Phantasmagoria. From your Lain picture, I'm guessing you've already seen that, but make sure to check out other stuff Yoshitoshi ABe's worked on. Technolyze was already mentioned, and Haibane Renmei's got a lovely feeling to it. I've not seen any of his other stuff, but I trust my main man Y to the A B enough to know they're probably good. There's also stuff like the End of Evangelion and FLCL, but everyone and their grandmother's seen that, so it's probably not worth mentioning.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. Will post more if i can think of any.

Maybe this isn't what you're looking for, but there's always Cat Soup if you haven't already seen it. MindGame is another one that I almost never see mentioned, despite it being one of the most unique animated movies I've ever seen.

cat soup is that trippy one with the brother kitties right? I'd say that pretty much fits OP's request.
I was going to suggest Mind Game but OP asked specifically for very experimental stuff like stuff without dialogues and the like. In that sense most of what has been suggested are pretty much regular stuff.

I guess this is a really old anime but it was one of my favorites. It's really comfy and some of the hand animated scenes blow me away. Has rotoscoping and I know that's a popular technique but it's done very well in this anime. Bobby ni Kubittake Sorry if this isn't what you're looking for.
