How do you feel about filtered photographs in manga?

Perfectly valid artistic tool or the calling card of a hack?

Well if I don't notice or can't tell, I'm fine.
If it's glaring against the art style that's a no.

Hudson Morris

This.
If it matches the artstyle, then it's good editing.
If it looks like how 3DCG in anime looks like, then it's shit.

Carter Ward

It's fine for series where the backgrounds are just there so the panels won't look empty but otherwise it's unacceptable, especially if it's an important part of getting the reader to feel something.

Aaron Watson

They do it in anime too, who cares, the artwork is shit most of the time anyway so who cares

Daniel Reed
Daniel Reed

Agreed.

I personally think OP's example is fine - it almost makes you think that there is a girl like that, waiting out there.

Christopher Allen

Are there any manga that do it for characters as well as backgrounds?

Easton Morris

why would there be something wrong with it

it looks like ass

Logan Rivera

Pic related is acceptable.

There are some glaringly stupid examples, like in Gantz

These sort of things can never be judged in isolation. You always need to take a holistic approach. You can't even say you're for it if it's seamless and against it if it's jarring, because even the jarring effects can be a positive if well done and intentional.

it's a little too early for hot takes, famicom

Artists should be able to use whatever means necessary to achieve optimal goal, as long as it's not against the law.

when you finish a marathon, nobody gives a shit about the miles you ran, they just care that you finished.

manga is the same way.

Kayden Stewart

If it feels like the artist is just being lazy then it sucks.

Used well thought it's perfectly fine. Just use it being aware that it does stick out so use it carefully. Either use it often or not at all I think.

William Bell

I'm pretty sure people would care if you rode a car to the finish line.

Tyler Diaz

They care if you hopped in a taxi halfway through.

This reminds me of those photos where people shop their anime girlfriends into photos of them

Anime Kagewani does it for characters, kind of.

Austin Gutierrez
Austin Gutierrez

That's unnaceptable for art. Because artist's skill is a necessary part of the art. But since manga is not an art, but shit, i'm ok with it.

Grayson Hall

kagewani is horrific in a bad way

David Nelson

Perfectly valid artistic tool or the calling card of a hack?
It's valid because it has just as high a skill ceiling. Just like tracing is valid.
Also if you get genuinely upset you need to calm the fuck down. We all know magic is fake too, or wrestling. That doesn't make it any less entertaining.

Juan Hill

any screenshots? I thought Gantz only used 3D rendering. Not any tracing.

Valid tool.

Christopher Sanders

What if you ran in the opposite direction, and circumnavigated the globe on foot? People would probably care then

Dylan Miller

Magic and wrestling are fake!?

Ethan Taylor
Ethan Taylor

I don't care, really. At the end of the day it is an image I am looking at and whether or not I like the image is purely subjective. Principles or ideologies go out the window as the eye likes what the eye likes.

It's deliberate to make a disconnection between her and the real world.

Why on earth would that be remotely relevant?

Plagiarism and copyrights, duh.

Samuel Wilson

Magic is, wrestling isn't. Wrestling is magic. Real magic.

That is clearly not fine. The photo doesn't mesh at all with the girl.

Colton Lee
Colton Lee

Its lazy and also jarring, because manga in general tends to have a simple style for its characters, and it clashes against the high detail of a real picture

Anthony Clark
Anthony Clark

That isn't an answer. Would you enjoy your favourite manga any less if you found out aspects of it were "plagiarised" or violated "copyright"?

Michael Walker
Michael Walker

yes, not even a question.

Gavin Sanchez
Gavin Sanchez

because manga in general tends to have a simple style for its characters
The range of character designs in manga is so incredibly fucking diverse that making such a statement is mind bogglingly fucking stupid.

Cooper Myers

Why?

Angel Flores

I'll just point out that kys is associated with a strange youtuber who has a following consisting of little children who spam kys everywhere, this strange youtuber even sounds as if puberty skipped him

Camden Perez

It cheapens and devalues the art.

Caleb Hall
Caleb Hall

Huh? people put effort into creating illusions for magic.
And for wrestling too since they train their bodies and learn how to act.

Charles Young
Charles Young

You have to look at it from an angle where you're comparing an anime character to a real human. It doesn't matter what the art style is for any particular anime, it is always simplified when compared to a real face.

Eli Scott
Eli Scott

It's based on how well the artist uses it.

As much as how much people tend to shit on them, I think Asano Inio and Hanazawa Kengo's application in their respective works is stellar.

David Russell
David Russell

I know, that why i said "tends"
If i had stated every single one of them you would be right.

Brandon Perez
Brandon Perez

most of the time
Sure, but you'd at least like them to make an attempt. Maybe we'd have more Studio Pablos around if more studios cared about their backgrounds.

Ian Davis
Ian Davis

tracing is valid
It's not.
Photos in manga is like photos in paintings gallery. It's derogate the meaning of manga as art.

Aaron Peterson
Aaron Peterson

This, more or less.

If it was used more often by a larger number of mangaka I'd probably be against it as lazy.

That said, really only Inio and Kengo are doing it, and they're doing it very well. It adds to their otherwise well-drawn pages and doesn't detract so much as add to the scene.

For now It's fine

Dominic Myers

Should I be ashamed to have no idea what kys means

Landon Bennett

No. Only faggots use it. Report it and move on.

I really enjoyed that.
