Well Japanese cartoons haven't been infected by CalArts yet.
It may be starting. But Japanese animation's biggest problem is constantly outsourcing to Koreans and India.

Always with the cute, moe & academy shit.
That's why even in Japan good manga shonen is pretty rare these days.
The cringy slice of life school idol shit is all over the damn place.

Do people in the West still do Chad painting though? Cause from what I have seen, they do "modern art" which is just trash, literally. I will take anime art over that.
People who do modern """art""" are just moneywhores/tricksters. There are still artists out there who do the painterly western thing, they're just less promiment. There's the old guys like Vilppu and Huston, and from what I've seen, concept artists tend to have more western-y styles (or at least less anime styles).

A number of Japanese artists involved in animation or manga were interviewed on how they got their start into their industry by some random magazine articles few decades back. They gave vague answers on their successes and how they managed to make it in the industry. Coincidentally, many of those artists started drawing since they were young, went to school for photography, human anatomy, Western Renaissance art, and learned the basics like a vanishing point, shadowing, etc. Many of them did detailed sketches for things such as plants and animals, or a bowl of fresh fruits. This was before moving onto drawing anime and manga or doing other things.

The Tumblr/CalArts people most likely stopped studying never studied perspective, anatomy, light-color spectrum, depth perception, etc. They probably didn't attend school, haven't been critiqued in their art, and are just plain lazy. They're the CWCs of their craft.

I hate to burst your bubble, FluffyTehFennekin, but there are good Western artists out there who haven't been gay'ed over by the Tumblr/CalArts disease. I think you're mixing up quality and perception on why Japanese artists are "so good" with art. Many good Western artists are around. They're doing other things than just cartoons. Like making WH40K art.

Some time ago, a Japanese artist started posting tutorials in English that benefit beginners and more advanced artists and well...Twitter had a problem with the word 'beginner' and started targeting her (no doubt a good chunk of them are Tumblr/Calarts artists that never want to develop).


When Neogaf is making sense, you know something's fucked.
Not to derail, but yeah, this isn't helping out west's case, but I think the whole idea that "Only Japan can make anime" bit has to die in a fire, but what am I saying, most of the fujoshi and ass end weeaboos who believe this are now SJWs and BLMers.

Are you sure their biggest problem isn't the part where most of the good ones died in a fire?
Sometimes, I am reminded that Japan also has a more prominent female audience and creator base for anime and manga, which is why moe and cuter things are prolific there, while out west here, stuff is more male orientated. Not a bad thing, just if you know what you want, hope you have the means to get it.

japanese art is so good that there's an entire category of porn dedicated to their shitty scribbles. why is art so good anyways? you just scribble on paper and by chance something good comes out. no one gets good at art naturally, it's all by chance. it's like if i did the lottery all day and people commended my for sometimes hitting the 777. artists have no life tbh, why do they even exist?
It isn't uniquely good. It's just able to covertly serve an illegal category.

Time for history, filthy casuals.

Osamu Tezuka, aka god of manga, father of manga, godfather of manga, blah blah, whatever, was greatly influenced by Disney films. One of his favorite films was Bambi but his guilty pleasure was Carl Barks Donald Duck comics. So much, in fact, that he designed his art style around big eyes, broad gestures and bold expressions. He was such a fan of Barks that he sent him Christmas cards;

Anime wouldn't exist without Donald Duck.

Take it you never saw P&S or Gurren Lagann either then.
To be fair these are random background characters, the main characters themselves have lovely designs and look fine on a technical level.

And in my opinion...I dunno even at their worst Anime/Manga artists have more likeable elements compared to Western Artists nowadays. Most of the more recent cartoons put out by the west feel mean spirited or ugly looking, or just overly politically correct to the point they aren't that interesting.
