Hello /loomis/, I arrive at your humble board to officially announce the GCUP! The GCUP will be an exhibition tournament between boards of the webring that represent nations of the world, and will be contested under usual ICUP rules. In addition, we'll also be hosting friendlies for non-national boards/teams as part of the festivites. Friendlies can be played under normal rules, or, if you choose, under alternate (meme) rulesets that will be decided closer to the Cup's kickoff. If you would like to participate, head on over to the pinned thread at our board on Cafe. The event is set to begin February 13th, 2021. Look forward to having you there!
Hello /loomis/, ICUP 7 is still being worked on, and progress is still steady, but we need your help. If you have a good PC enough to run PES 2017 and to stream it, or if you are willing to commentate, please contact us at >>>/icup/. Currently we have three potential streamers, but the more the merrier. In regards to your team, it is currently valid. You can choose if you want to use the icons from your roster page to replace the empty icons from the Game Plan view: https://infinitycup.miraheze.org/wiki//loomis//Roster You can also try and find 3D models in case we have extra time to add them. Finally, if you are capable of doing 3D modelling, creating OC, working on the wiki or just helping in any way possible feel free to reach out as well.

The draw stream is going to happen on Friday this week, 18:00 UTC at https://cytu.be/r/infinitycup The attached image shows the start time in various timezones (from https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?p1=1440&iso=20220812T18&msg=Draw%20Stream ). End time is unknown, but it should last an hour or two at least because it will be used to run test matches, and will probably fail catastrophically at some point.
Open file (13.27 KB 692x95 ICUP 7 draw.png)
After a disastrous draw stream that started an hour late, we now have the group stage draw. I'm not seeing any of the predicted rivalries. Group B appears to be the Group of Death. Here is the test/draw stream, be warned that it starts off horribly due to a missing noise reducer on the microphone. https://fedimovie.com/c/icup_stream7/videos?s=1 Fair warning, this is a PeerTube instance, so if the P2P bothers you then click My Settings on the left, then unselect "Help share videos being played" (you don't need to login). This isn't necessary for the stream, just the replay.

Alright /loomis/ I need some years-long-closure for the drawing that broke me. I posted this years ago on prolikewoah/animu/. I was expecting advice and mild-mannered criticism, and I got the "typical-anon-treatment" instead. It's hand-drawn on paper, taken with a camera, and edited in Krita to have more contrast. So now, I want a "real" opinion on this. What is right and wrong at this point? Can I git gud, or at the very least suck in peace? god fucking damn it, I'm literally crying again. fuck.
>>1510 > What is right and wrong at this point? Can I git gud, Sure you can. It's just a matter of practice as with most things. But I don't see a lot to critique there. You would just have to start to learn the anatomy of the face and neck. Or at least the proportions and how the underlying structure of the skull works in three dimensions. I'm not sure how long it took to draw that thing, so it's hard to critique. Also: Git gut faget LEL
>>1511 >Sure you can. It's just a matter of practice as with most things. >But I don't see a lot to critique there. You would just have to start to learn the anatomy of the face and neck. Or at least the proportions and how the underlying structure of the skull works in three dimensions. I think my problem with anatomy is two things. First is that the process of drawing off photos feels rigid and precise while drawing stylized humans requires fluidity and ambiguity to do the work for you. Second (piggybacking off the first) is that I get copy-paste-tunnel vision with photos, while in the case of stylized, I get lost in the freedom of choice. and have trouble putting down simple shapes. So, based on that, I should practice more on making simple shapes "More 3D,". What else would I be missing? >I'm not sure how long it took to draw that thing, so it's hard to critique. To be honest, I can't remember either, I don't think it was much over an hour. >Also: Git gut faget LEL Haha! Damn straight I will!
>>1510 What did you use as reference, or did you draw it by memory?
>>1514 No reference at all. It was drawn completely from imagination.

Oh, damn an art board. I'll keep a look at this. Although my main stay is over at http://nanochanqzaytwlydykbg5nxkgyjxk3zsrctxuoxdmbx5jbh2ydyprid.onion/oc/ If you post on nanochan, you'll get an overpaint, if I see that you've put effort into the painting or drawing. Otherwise use this thread for for the clearnet normies. Do you want to know how to do anything specific in Krita? New to animation? New to painting? If you're using Photoshop or Corel Painter, you're a cuck and not allowed in this thread. Ok, let's see if this semi advertisement gets deleted.

MS Paint & Animation Artist 07/14/2022 (Thu) 17:36:02 No.1500 [Reply]
What is a good animation software that is similar to Microsoft Paint? I'm so used to drawing in MS Paint and none of any other pixel animation software I've found has features MS Paint has, like right-clicking in the middle of drawing to cancel that stroke being drawn.
>>1500 Mmh, don't know if it helps but have you tried Paint.NET? Otherwise I think I remember someone mentioning Aseprite as a good tool for sprite animatins.

How do I make skin look less plastic? Right now I'm hitting the deepest depths of the uncanny valley dead on every time I try realism.
>>602 Depending on the race of the subject, add yellows when light hits the skin and reds/blues where it is shadowed instead of straight black.

>>603 Thanks mate, I'll keep that in mind. I've got to say I severely underestimated how hard this was going to be, there's so much subtlety in coloring a face I've never recognized before. I'm kinda tracing pictures of better artists while autistically using the color picker and taking notes, I feel like a tiny baby artist.
>>602 skin is matte, it's soft and absorbs light instead of reflecting it. places where the skin can be harder like the nose tend to get it the most, but not so much anywhere else unless the person is oily or wet. Reflections on the nose and corners of the eyes are best used sparingly but to great effect.
