How would you guys feel about an official chat, like with a discord or an irc group?
>>765 why?
>>766 Just curious. Might be a good way to make different language learners mingle.
>>768 >A good way to make different language learners mingle That sounds reasonable but i think the board you are looking for is /lang/. This is /loomis/, we draw things with pencils or plastic touchpads here.
>>769 Ah, my bad! I had both open and I must have made a mistake...

>>64 Yes. The regular thumbnail size is 200x200. You might want to make it something like 150x150.
>>65 Changed size again, tell me how it feels
>>89 It's the same size as regular thumbnails now but most spoiler images on boards are distinctly smaller than the max thumbnail size. They're usually 128px but I think it makes the lines on image a little too small so I like 150px. Posting multiple spoiled images to see what it's like.

Questions that don't deserve their own thread - Sketches Edition. Do you usually refine the figure (face, accessories, hair, drapes) when sketching or its easier to just putting a landmark then refine it later in lineart?

>>760 If you had the monitor settings set-up that way in Windows, I can't see why it wouldn't also work in Linux unless it's using a different display profile but since you can't find one for your monitor, it's probably just a generic sRGB profile in both OS's. I wonder if you get the right colors if you do a drawing with the default monitor settings? Presumably whatever you are doing the drawing in is attaching a color profile to the output image?
>>761 I've been trying to do that, but I always get a message that says, "Warning - Unable to read file profile.icc". So far, I've used these commands: >xcalib BestRGB.icc >xcalib /usr/share/color/icc/BestRGB.icc >/usr/bin/xcalib -d :0 /usr/share/color/icc/BestRGB.icc However, I think you have the right idea. I'll try to find out what I'm doing wrong. Thank you. >>762 Come to think of it, I used the NVIDIA Control Panel to calibrate my monitor in Windows, so I guess W7 is using a different display profile technically. Unfortunately, the Linux version of that control panel doesn't have that option.
How to make the transition from pen and paper to digital? Just draw?
>>764 >Just draw? Pretty much that, or at least that was my case. However, you could try a few exercise to get used to this new environment faster. >Draw lines, circles and cubes >Color some line art >"Ink" some pencil drawings >Make a few sketches every now and then In short, start with easy stuff and move from there.

WAR!!! Monthly Theme Thread 07/03/2020 (Fri) 06:26:08 No.706 [Reply] [Last]
Ok, I hereby declare art war on 8kun.top/loomis. (This is just an excuse to draw some characters and their equipement..) We'll need to draft an army, in order to psychologically destroy their board. We'll have four monthly themes, after which we should've assembled our army. (It's monthly, because I'm not sure how productive you guys are. It should be fun and not stressful.) During each month you can post your concepts and practice drawings related to the theme of the current month. The themes will be: - Armour - Weapons - War Face - Soldier The last month is when we explicitly create new soldiers for our army, using the knowledge we've acquired over the three prior months. (When I say "soldier" I mean anything that could potentially fight for the honor of anon.cafe/loomis.)

>>707 Go on /loomis/ to learn the art of drawing. Get conscripted into learning the art of war instead. The first lesson was drawing battle lines but I couldn’t manage them without a ruler. Here’s some armour (well technically a weapon). It’s a tank. A shark tank. The Hammerhead S.H.R.K is a self-propelled armoured fighting vehicle designed to accommodate Selachii crew members. It boasts the latest high muzzle velocity direct fire main gun technology capable of firing 120mm S.E.A shells making it ideal for coastal assaults, destroying enemy emplacements, and mowing down the pesky proletariat who’ve gotten ideas above their station. It’s also great for pool parties.
>>720 You did well comrade. This tank will surely provide decent protection against the enemies attacks of decadence. (I also like that shark face.)
How dare you people try to kill my thread. You better post something or I'll loose respect for ya.
>>774 What thread?

Good session guys, seven people-I think that's a record! Let's try for even more next week. Until next time!
We're 3 hours and 45 minutes out as of this post, see you then!
In the future, it might be good to use the announcements thread on /meta/ a day or two ahead. https://anon.cafe/meta/res/13261.html
>>779 Sounds like a plan. >>780 It is no longer time. Here's this week's rollup, minus a few things done in the interim. My thanks to anyone stopping by.

/loomis/ for the Infinity Cup 2020! Artist 06/11/2020 (Thu) 10:26:17 No.556 [Reply] [Last]
Hey artists, With the Infinity Cup 2020 fast approaching, how about you come and join us with a team? Just make a thread over at https://anon.cafe/icup/ and create your team!
37 posts and 25 images omitted.
Thought I'd turn my favorite banner into an adboard. Thanks to the anon who made the original.
Just a reminder you have less than a week to finish up tactics and player cards. If you are having any difficulties or are worried no one will step up, leave a post here or in your thread on /icup/. I have an anon on standby willing to put something together for teams who need help. If you're a team who has participated in a previous Cup and you have not explicitly let me know you're sticking with your strats from last time, do so ASAP, as it cuts down on the work I'll have to do in the week after the Draw Stream. If you've already done so, kick back, take it easy and wait for the draw stream. Draw Stream is August 1st, 2PM PDT, 4PM CDT, 5PM EDT, 21:00 UTC. Mark that calendar. As well, we're still accepting adboards for use during the tournament, visit the dedicated adboard thread on /icup/ and post them there.
Just under an hour away, Draw Stream, be there! https://cytu.be/r/8cup

The Draw Stream is complete, and with only minor technical difficulties! You guys will play in Group D with /bmn/, /2hu/, and /mecha/! I'll be by again later with official game times for your board.

>>538 Just pick up one and experiment while you read, art is not set in stone as far as learning goes. I know some guys who paint their sprites without a baseline.
>>723 You don't have to stop your progress now especially since you haven't filled the whole canvas. Back when I was formally schooled in 2D art my primary instructor gave us the "3 S's", which were Shape, Symmetry and Shade. Firstly to identify simple and complex shapes of the subject matter, then to map them out and from those shapes you can use light linework to map out cross sections of those more complex asymmetrical shapes like hands, shapes, hair, etc. Afterwards over the light linework, I can't stress enough how important in the beginning being sensitive to pressure on paper is, shading from darkest to lightest shapes on your subjects in layers is a great way of having a high contrast image without making one gray blended blob. Makes everything look a lot more photorealistic too and less like it has those outlines like a cartoon. Your drawing needs to have the dark shapes darkened more, for example, the female's arm almost blends in with the man's starch white t-shirt even though her arm is much darker and casts it's own shadow deliniating it from the whiteness of the shirt. Keep the light shapes as light as they are currently. Blend in those solid line marks too.

This one is based on Christchurch and, while anything above the sight and the right is disproportionate (weird since I started from there), the shading ended up turning out better Is this where we start practising depth?
