Have you watched that anime, Nii-sama? It's awesome~!
    Well on the plus side, you got something done. I still need to finish over due assignments. It's just sad really... I hope I don't fail more than half of my classes. If I do then I don't know what the Fudge I'm going to do. Akame Ga kill isn't actually related to Kill la Kill. XD But I loved both. Hmm... well, one more than the other. Kill la kill's writing is awesome, despite the weirdness that goes on.

    still surviving? how's everyone? lol!!

    for me as usual pretty darn tied to school and getting worn out by the end of every week
    tat i just wanna stay in bed for the weekends and do nothing but sleep

    but, such is (school)life

    quick update:
    instead of western painting, as original intended when i enrol myself to art school,
    i decide to take the leap and major in Chinese ink painting.

    ^I don't really see any... "Major" point in going into Art classes. I mean, you will learn a sh!t ton of things. But for me, I personally feel art is more "Self taught" because when you "learn" something, you most likely feel you HAVE to use that. But really, it's up to you.

    Edit: Not saying it's useless. Some people learn differently. But for my learning process in art, I view it as self taught

    Edit: example: I "self taught" what I call "BS Lining"

    Take a look at this:

    One of my friends drawings


    Pretty simple right? if the lining was more smooth this would look awesome. BUT! Even with that added, something would look off... it doesn't "feel" detailed. Even though it very well could be.

    Now, take a look at this



    There really is no reason for those lines. But it "feels" detailed because there's more lining on the screen

    So, I recreated my friends drawing with my character, add the BS lines and-



    (Rough draft btw) there you have it. There's really no purpose for those lines, but it's more visually enticing for the eye because it "looks" detailed.

    haha ok to some it's "BS lining" and as u said, no purpose but to b more visually enticing for the eye because it "looks" detailed.

    but to some, it tells a lot more of wat the creator is trying to achieve, or tell of that certain subject

    let's take the example u attached, Cooler's final form, as example

    we would understand that the white parts are exoskeleton-ish parts
    but what happens if the BS lines weren't added?
    the lines added is to illustrate not only the hard- and dryness of the exoskeleton
    but also give a hint of the weathering it receive from combat

    i mean, sure the one who design the character could just do away with the lines
    and use solely shades to tell those
    but he didn't

    actually this doesn't boils down to art education
    it simply base of the creator's style.
    for example in Takashi Murakami's works, rarely u will find BS linings
    cos that's his style - Superflat, which he founded.. and which ironically is a self-proclaimed art movement
    which is influenced by anime and manga and the exploration of pop(-sub)culture, consumerism and sexual fetishism.

    of cos one can don do with formal art education,
    and many professionals had mentioned that one do not need it
    and especially so if u had found what u like
    but, from what i had gone thru (and heard from seniors) so far is because
    simply there's so much they are squeezing into each student
    and those aren't even the complete package
    at the end of day (or each semester lol),
    one would ask wtf the school's trying to teach us?
    or
    wtf must i take this or that module?

    indeed im feeling this way as in my (and fellow schoolmate) case
    the lesson/lecture time we have for our major specialism is shorter compared to other modules
    in return, had less time to understand and digest what we'd learned.
    definitely it would be retard to think most of us can acheive good results for all modules

    .
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .

    ok i think i'd digress lol

    but yeah, one can choose to or not to take up formal ar education
    especially in these day and age one can google for answers
    and get to find good pointers from pros who selflessly give them for free.

    although i like to point out that,
    a formal art education isn't merely about learning how to make art,
    but also the discourse of what is art, when is art "art", can this or that be art, and the usual whole shebangzz of art history and theory... etc.

    Well with that being said I'd say an education course wouldn't be so bad lol.

    I hadn't taken "art style" into consideration. I guess "BS Lining" is a thing some artists use. Like shading. I see some use lining for shading. But I also see just, regular shading.

    I do feel a have a problem with making my art style more manga. I should focus more on my style

    nowadays there's simply too much info/data bombarding us

    while there's always new and shiny stuffs (drawings/paintings) posted online or printed
    i would say just focus on a few things at a time
