At least Miura can draw, unlike Isayama.
>>
>>101409511

I am enjoying Gigantololipiss too much.
>>
>>101409612

Isayama drew his first manga like 2 years ago.

Miura's been drawing Berserk over 20.
>>
>>101409511

You mean after 2 chapters we get on the boat again
>>
Miura's stuff looks amazing as always.

I'm hyped for Berserk now

One, not two. Only 4 are scanlated, 5 are out.

Isayama drew his prototype to SnK when he was 19. The art was goddamn awful, but in 2-3 years he's gone from utter shit to getting decent. I'd say it's likely he started drawing late.

He's far from a high-tier manga artist yet, but he improves. It's unfair to compare him to a 20 year and highly-talented veteran, but that's no reason to shit on him.
>>
>>101410518
That would be a decent point if that image wasn't also drawn at the age of 19, by Miura.
>>
>>101410518
19 year old Miura had been drawing for 20 years? Impressive
>>
>>101410948
Miura was drawing even before he was conceived. He's just THAT good.
>>
>>101410769

Not at all, the point stands because I'm not saying Isayama is better than Miura.
>>
>>101411146
But he'll die of old age before they get off the boat...

I'm trying to wait for all six chapters before I make any conclusions, but I'm not liking what I see so far.

It kind of feels like retro-shounen. Like Fist of the North Star.

Bastard had Titans in it decades before SnK came into existence, newfags.

You SnKfags wished your monster designs were as good as the ones found in the Bastard manga.
>>
>>101408647
As a fan of SnK.

Fuck off.

I tried disconnecting those two thoughts. I'm not a fan of Fist of the North Star, but I didn't mean to imply that the similar feel was related to my reception of this series.

I haven't thought about why I'm not liking it fully yet, but here's a list of knee-jerk likes and dislikes:

>likes
- detailed art
- Delios and Prome
- Miura doing whatever it takes to make him happy and recharge his batteries for Berserk

>dislikes
- the bug people are kind of repulsive and unlikable, but I think we're supposed to care about them
- noticeable lack of gore from Miura, I can speculate on why he's tired of drawing it, but it contributes to an overall shounen feel
- explicit pedo fanservice
- eotena
>>
>>101411736
thats a bad feel
>>
>>101408647
Sasuga Miura
>>
>>101411736

To be honest, that particular page reminds me more of Yukito Kishiro's art than Miura's.

Excellent artist.

If you say so.
>>
>>101411736
At some point you will stop giving a shit about the art.
>>
>>101416018

At that point I'll go read books instead.
>>
>>101416159
That wasn't my point, but my original sentence was kinda flawed.
>>
>>101416316

My point is manga is for enjoying both story and art, even if you can enjoy one without the other.
>>
>>101408647
>>101409383
>>101409438
>that art
Funny how SnK is so much more incredibly popular yet the artwork is 100 times less impressive.
Makes you re-think how manga is an art form.
>>
>>101417044
In my case, I think comparing art to the point of just seeking other titles that got a similar vibe of what you consider the best is silly; you will never find something like that, unless it's another manga by the same author.

>>101417141
Well, even the supposed "ugly" art of SnK has its own charm.
>>
Jesus.
Miura isn't that good of an artist.
His perspective is amateurish, he uses excessive shading to cover up poor lineart and continually forgets what scale his characters are in.
>>
>>101417494
YEAH, WELL
IT LOOKS GOD DAMN PRETTY
>>
>>101417494
Ironically, what people love more about his art is the shading plus the weird perspectives, kinda the same thing happens with Inoue and his "tracing".

Screening is for amateurs. Real artists turn an entire page black with nothing but a fine tip pen.

Key differences there.
He's a legitimately one of the best artists in manga.

Let's not pretend that Miura is some beacon of originality either.
>>
>>101417851
Samura is terrible.
He's one of the laziest artists ever.
>>
>>101408647
>>101409383
>>101409438
These three 2 page spreads are just great. Some of the coolest looking stuff he has drawn since the Hawk of the Millennium Empire arc.
>>
>>101418014
Now, I love The Evil Dead/Army of Darkness as much as the next guy, but a lot of this picture is pretty far fetched.
>>
>>101418236
And a lot of it is fucking spot on.
>>
>>101418014
Let's not pretend taking inspiration from Army of Darkness isn't great and needs to happen more often.
>>
>>101417778
I'm talking specifically about Slam Dunk, his art is totally different in Vagabond, I simply never enjoyed it as much as I did with the former.

>>101418014
I'm not, it was just an example.
>>
>>101418236
>>101418302
Even if it was, and it isn't, we shouldn't give a shit about derivative works. Evil Dead itself drew upon countless sources of inspiration.
>>
>>101418344
I thought Slam Dunk got traced (by smoeone else), not that it itself was traced.
>>
>>101411333
Too bad looks is not everything
>>
>>101418424
I kinda think the same, As long as it's not at the same level of the Senran Kagura Oreimo art ripoff that got shut down from Kickstarter.

>>101418599
Some of the plays in the manga are based out of NBA matches, I don't consider that itself bad in any way, but a small group of elevens really do.
>>
>>101418302
I agree, I didn't say it was ALL far fetched, but some of it definitely is. And as other people have said, I don't really mind. The Evil Dead and Army of Darkness were amazing and I am glad to see things take inspiration from them.
>>
>>101418671
That would be applicable if SnK had anything to compensate for the sub-par art.
>>
>>101410098
>>101410316
>Did this kind of stuff at 19, with the Berserk prototype a while later
>I'm 20 and can hardly draw a stick figure
What have I been doing with my life?
>>
>>101417283

I don't think that's true, as I mentioned, Miura's giant reminds me a lot of Gunm Last order's artwork, for one.
>>
>>101412697
>the bug people are kind of repulsive and unlikable, but I think we're supposed to care about them

racist

>explicit pedo fanservice
what wrong with that you pedophobe
>>
>>101418014

Most of those are grasping at straws to a ridiculous degree.
>>
>>101419813

Look at SnK's prototype.

I am SURE you can draw at least more or less like that.

3 years later and the guy is rolling in dosh and popularity, and while his art still has a long way to go, he's gotten a lot better.

You can do it.
>>
even kentaro miura knows amateurly drawn shingeki no kyojin flies off the shelves like hot cakes unlike his 20 year old work

>>101409013
>What are dynamic angles
