>>26 Hey guys, think you've gathered as much, but I've been unable to check on the board regularly for some time. I'd like to give ownership to somebody else. If you think you can handle it, hit me at the mail in the email field. Sorry about letting the board go but I don't see any way to bring it back up to how it used to be.

Hello there, it seems i'm the NBO and i would like to thank the previous BO for trusting me the board. While i haven't been an active user since a long time ago, i can still say i browse to check on things. Now it's obvious by now this place has been in disuse for some reason or another but i think there's still anons who don't really want to jump to the other site, so this thread is for them: If you have any suggestion, comment or observation you can do so with all liberties here, in my opinion i think we should probably discuss what we want for the board and how we should do to promote our mutual feedback and activities in anon.cafe... or if users want it as a bunker for the other place, which can be understandable but that requires bunker status by the admins and a sort of "cold storage" status. But still, if there's a single anon who wants to use this place formally once in a while, apart from me of course, then that idea will be discarded; my point is just a quick friendly discussion on what's on your mind(s) for this board. From my part it seems i will have to pump my practice dramatically and post much more often
>>1084 I mostly post on the other place, but I originally wanted an active /loomis/ on the webring. We could try and establish some sort of twin board status so that content that wouldn't fly there can be posted here and vice versa, if that's fine with ya.
>>1085 >some sort of twin board status >content that wouldn't fly there can be posted here I didn't know some stuff didn't fly there, i don't use the other place but i wouldn't mind such plan at all, i mean as long as we can swing by from time to time and have some laughs. What content is it anyways? not furry stuff, right?

So... what made you get into drawing?
12 posts and 3 images omitted.
to draw my nice dreams, nightmares and my ancestor guardian that has been passed down to me, protecting me from a personification of dark entity sent by envious people to ruin our life by the service of a witch. you can see him and her(the devil) if you're my boyfriend when you sleep.
to share my stories and make my ideas come to life
I was like 4 years old and the crayons were colorful. They still are.
I wanted to make my own hentai mostly.

Forced labor drawings, improvised a bit but i missed several line thicknesses and forgot to align heights at times. The journey continues even when i formally haven't started with the books.

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?

>>1040 That's fair I guess. I just want to avoid art school and (expensive for me) feedback from paywall artist to gain the critiques, I guess I gotta bite that cookie then.
>>1041 >I just want to avoid art school >feedback/gain the critiques If you go the route of "outsider" artist, or someone who "made up" his own style and doctrine, you can easily be identified among the rest of the people if you refine it with your own tastes enough, plus you avoid those things you mentioned. Thing is solitude is a bitch though, one can never gauge how good or unique we are going because we are used to seeing our own stuff. For that i don't know what to recommend other than bite the bullet and go hermit until you are moderately satisfied with your work... but there's one thing for sure, you'll probably double your chances of success if you can apply those drawings onto a good story/joke/conceptual narrative so scriptwriting/world-building is as crucial as having a pretty picture.
>>1041 I'll give you a proper critique on some high effort work. I'm not regularly online, but after a week, you can probably be assured you've gotten a proper critique. Being cut off from the internet for days or weeks does wonders for you productivity. ^ o ^

>>1039 Because, like in the days of olde 8ch, 80% of every board's users are lurkers. Porn boards and dump boards can live like that, but in places like this that require active participation, there's not much point without an active userbase. Also what >>1039 said, the BO moved operations. I don't really get what the point of that was, but if there was more community support here, I'd prefer this one. I suppose he thought people would be more comfortable using markchan. At least neither one is /ic/. t. lurker of both

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.

>>1063 > I am not using the latest version of Krita because the program gets fucking WORSE with new versions. I've been using 4.1.7 for who knows how long because to my knowledge it's the last version before they started fucking up some important UX things such as making the layer list jump up and down when you make a selection and adding some horrible latency to some selection-related action that I don't remember now. I can't even remember the last time any update did anything worth a shit, they constantly focus on shitty features that literally nobody cares about like windows 10 exclusive HDR monitor support or some animation features. I'm currently using 4.4.3 and don't have any major issues. The only thing that sometimes happens is that the software crashes if I work on files that are too big for my RAM and CPU to handle. Photoshop was worse though, in my experience. > >Most big software projects have horrible code. That's the nature of programming something that gets actual work done. > Spoken like someone who doesn't know shit. No it isn't. That's the nature of retarded developers. I know enough about programming to know that this shit isn't fucking hard, I've even made a fucking graphics editor program before so I have a rough idea of how to organize things in one. I don't know how to describe it to someone who doesn't know how to program, but the only way this would be hard is if they did the equivalent of building their house inside out and/or connecting pipes and electrical wires back and forth in the middle of rooms, and using some Trusted Walmart Universal Smart Glue Clip Connectorâ„¢ to attach half of everything together instead of just connecting them normally. If it's not that hard, then there should be more quality alternatives to Krita. The fact of the matter is that there aren't any, because it's not that easy to write a cross platform graphics program with all the features Krita provides. > >I'm not quite sure why people complain about the text tool. > How about because it's FUCKING UNUSABLE? Have you even ever tried a text tool on another graphics program? If you just want to slap in a couple words and don't give a fuck about the fonts then it's fine, assuming you're lucky enough not to be affected by the garbage visual glitches the "new" text tool introduced. But if you use it regularly and know what you're doing and just want to get it done, then it's worse than any other real graphics program that I've seen. I usually prefer to write text in fucking MS Paint and copy paste it into Krita than use the shitty Krita text tool because MS paint is easier, more consistent, less buggy, gives higher quality result, and remembers the font I previously used. I've used many different Graphics programs, which include GIMP, Krita, Manga Studio 5, Clip Studio Paint, PaintStorm, Photoshop CC, Mypaint, and whatever I forgot. I think it would be helpful for you to understand that Krita might run different on different systems. I never had issues with the Software. But apparently others sometimes had major issues. I'm on GNU/Linux. > >Gimp is great tool, but a jack of all trades and a master of none. > Gimp is a master of a whole lot of things if you compare it to Krita. The reason it's not as usable is because it has terrible UI/UX and it's missing some important basics like selecting multiple layers. But in terms of quality in most actions it's better than Krita.

>>1060 >>1063 Criticize Krita all you like but Gimp is absolutely fucking awful for drawing and/or painting with, always has been, always will be, and there's no way you can sit here with a straight face and tell anybody otherwise. It's a great image editing program though.
Not that I have much concern over this 'debate' one way or the other, but a) I'm an artist with a good tablet and plenty of experience using Photoshop with it. b) I've used both Krita and GIMP, and c) I find Krita far easier to reason about and to use than GIMP. My chief complaint about Krita is working with text in it. Beyond that I much prefer it to GIMP. That is all.
Krita's mascot is a cute furry thingy, Gimp's mascot is a fucking pepper. There is nothing to compare

Hey guys, /icup/ here with a question on how we're going to handle the next iteration of the Infinity Cup ( https://anon.cafe/icup/ ) We're trying to poll whether certain boards are interested in playing in the cup, or if there's some specific team that you'd like to see play. If you want to, please answer or add your own answer to the poll in https://poal.me/6x3j1u
