Why is it that there aren't any successful attempts of
I've seen many examples of proper use of western style from Japan.
We're certainly not shy of proper artists.
Cause it wouldn't be manga then.
as in gunslingin weastern?
Pic not related I take it?
I suppose an eastern style would be a better description.
Nope, I meant the illustration.
Not really, no.
Because they're called COMICS over here, anon.
Whats funny about that? I would say its a pretty successful use of manga style in western manga.
I thought you were referring to Dan Kim, the creator of Red Mango.
After checking it out, I like it.
He is fairly well known on /a/ I thought...
Perhaps he is.
I'm not all of /a/ though.
I’ve been trying to make ‘calling manga comics’ a thing but it’s not catching on.
/a/ – Japanese Comics and Cartoons
You're talking to neo-/a/ now.
Aren't there a bunch of really well drawn webcomics?
The only problems are that they're not hand drawn at all, they sacrifice colour for quality and that manga hosts either don't host them or butcher them into manga sized images.
I guess not.
You mean they sacrifice quality for colour?
I guess no one remembers this
Korea is west of Japan though! Clearly that's an example of western use of the style, then!
OP are you talking about OEL manga or manga with a different artstyle from the norm?
Either way, google is your friend
When westerners emulate a japanese style you can always tell.
Is this a thing? I mean people act like if you're good at art you can draw whatever but I don't know about that, it really seems like it matters where you're born, raised, taught to draw, etc.
Like, sure Avatar The Last Airbender looks clearly influenced by anime, but it's also clearly not. As it is with every other example ever.
Am I wrong?
Yeah! And you go far enough, Japan is actually west of itself, so manga is a Western use of manga too!
Mind blown for sure.
>Like, sure Avatar The Last Airbender looks clearly influenced by anime, but it's also clearly not. As it is with every other example ever.
The style of Avatar didn’t feel out of place at all.
I don't see how you got that from my post.
Yes there is. It's called 'comic'. You should look into it OP, a lot of great stuff there
