apart from the hands (too small) and maybe the butt i think i like how this turned out, except for not doing it landscape maybe.
>>1417 did u use a reference and if you do post it. So it's easier to compare
>>1418 didn't use a reference, all from scratch
>>1419 yeah it's hard to help if you do it all from your head

This my last post here this board is dead and loomis boards have no merit. I'm moving to antisocial on 8chan.moe
>>1421 plz don't leave :(
>>1422 I feel shame and guilt representing a board that doesn't care for quality of art and more then just get good. Loomis has a monopoly on imageboards and they reject and resent us altchan users they don't even acknowledge us. All they do is insult and mock us and banned me from drawpile for no reason mainly I guess because I have an opinion on effort being put into art and doing it for fun and see the fun in it but they lack that. They don't see the beauty or the appreciation for art. I have standards and if I am associate with people who don't think about what others think of the art they make like for example coom art and people getting raped and sex all they do is think with their sex drive that is pathetic in my opinion and shitty to be apart of. What more can I say this board is apart of the food chain I don't want to support maybe I motivate people to do art. I do art in my sleep it's that easy I critique my own work I see the flaw I've know for alone time now in how meaningless posting art is but I do it anyway. People like me know they are alone and nothing will ever change that so back in the dark I must go. All people care about with art is ego and status and attention and it shows through out a lot of artists on imageboards. If I were such an egotistic artist I would brag about how many hours I spend doing at art needing to show off is something I never want to. It's hard to stay sometimes you just have to let go. At least this place put a smile on my face of people enjoying art but nothing lasts forever.
>>1425 > Loomis has a monopoly on imageboards and they reject and resent us altchan users they don't even acknowledge us. I'm wondering who you are talking about. I've never seen anyone mock or reject altchan users. The new loomis imageboard is also an "altchan", as it's not part of 4cuck. > All they do is insult and mock us I've never witnessed that and consider that very unlikely based on my experience with the people on 8chan.moe/loomis and the new site. > and banned me from drawpile for no reason Then you must've done something destructive probably. The admin supports freedom of expression from what I've gathered. The drawpile is also not the whole of the /loomis/ community. I for example decided to spend less time on the drawpile, because I find the software too limiting for my purposes.
>>1426 This board isn't ran by the loomis owner so it was authentic in itself. The board owner isn't active anymore this place lost users in the up rise of the new board creation. This board was the only alt chan that really existed that was different from the loomis boards but the time is over I got this place acknowledge on drawpile but itgot erased the name in the matter of a week by a 4chaner who hated me. I am banned permanently I wanted to stay on this board i defended this board and pointed out the fact that they were stealing the users of this board they took artchad. It's over my posts get taken down in the matter of half i hour if I ask about my ban on their new board. They sucked this place try and took the users. They want everyone in one place I don't want to be there for a reason I just wanted to do art and have fun with it and share it. There is a reason they have art gain in there name they are only after the gain. They don't even like talking about modern or fine arts. 2022 has been a pretty shitty year and it only started I can't take losing things anymore it's too much to bare.
>>1427 Well, I'm still checking this place. When I see effort being put into work, then I also take the time to properly critique that work if the creator wants it. You can go and post where you want.
Oh, I also wanted to mention this: Only because I post work in a certain place, doesn't mean I don't pay attention to what's being posted on other places. I'm grateful that a new board has been created to give an option to both loomis communities to interact together in a single place. You don't need javascript and can connect via Tor, while the people who like to use javascript and the clearnet also can participate. :)
>>1425 > Loomis has a monopoly on imageboards and they reject and resent us altchan users wat, when did that happen here? if anything you will get mocked for being from the big imageboards and that only if you brag about it >>1427 >The board owner isn't active anymore The OG Owner focused on the 8.moe iteration and me (and Mr. Artchad) just come here to clean; like i said i would be here as long as the old BO or someone with a big plan comes along but without users you can't make anything. I haven't bought a scanner and my photos don't do justice to the paper i scrib, i don't have a tablet either so no form of showing my work, only checking it. >They sucked this place try and took the users. They want everyone in one place I don't want to be there for a reason Well you got that right have to say, you are welcome here as long as i have the BO buttons at hand but i understand if you want to share it to a bigger audience, lack of feedback or people walking along with one is a big hit i understand.

artga.in host here. I permanently banned >>1425 from both the drawpile and the new board because: 1. He vandalised the canvas several times. 2. He stirred up drama with other users. Multiple regular users ended up leaving because of him. 3. He spammed the new board with schizo nonsense like the following: >The majority of people get the bragging rights we get left out in the cold to lick our own wounds. Go on keep, people pleasing. One day you will see that no one actually cares. No matter what u offer them or give. Come and take what we once had. Then come back later for more it's never enough for you. We're never enough to satisfy your onslaught of monopolizing every art board that you identify with the name "Loomis". People deserve better and you should know better. Few of us can barely even face the real world let alone people. But we aren't in your consideration not even in the same category. Never will we be seen as equal. It is what, you made it out to be. With your assertion of your mod privileges & abuse of power. To shame people for their mistakes. Everyone in your books are perfect. Abusing the user so much to show them their place at the bottom of the food chain. Do yourself a favor don't include us keep excluding us.This is, the last you hear from me. I just can't be bothered to try or care anymore about all of this nonsense, it's child's play. Would rather never to be disturbed again by your greed or terrible company and awful mannerisms of treating fellow users as you see fit. Do it again and I will make your spleen twist and body ache I can stoop down too far lower levels. Then I am doing now, I know your weak spots and insecurities. Think twice before unloading your horse shit on other peoples lawn. Some will make you eat your own bullshit. So in the meantime, Go fuck yourselves! Because the new board has no captcha nor spam filter (to bring the best user experience), his sperging caused significant damage. In addition, his vandalism of the canvas also took a long time to clean up. If you are reading this za, go fuck yourself. I only tolerated you because Loomis begged me to let you stay.
>>1432 Instead of cherry picking my text here is the whole thing >Why on earth won't u give me a reason to why I am banned. Just because I talked shit about stuff doesn't really make sense to ban me over. I left on my own accord to begin with. Doubt the mods will read this anyway or care. So what, I'm entitled to an opinion. Assuming everyone is going to fold and come swarming to your new board and leave the past of another board behind them is sad. When you really break it down to see who is really active and apart of your community you'll only see few of if not barely any. Treating them like shit and bullying them and not standing up for them and just watching them defend for themselves, then blaming them as the culprit of all the wrong doing. It makes the person think and realize. "Oh I am nothing but unimportant, a joke and a punching bag, the enemy." We know deep down we will never be viewed or treated equally. Based on what grounds artist output, merit, ego? Does it even matter? What we do its always the same we're the ones to blame, we are the problem no matter what. The majority of people get the bragging rights we get left out in the cold to lick our own wounds. Go on keep, people pleasing. One day you will see that no one actually cares. No matter what u offer them or give. Come and take what we once had. Then come back later for more it's never enough for you. We're never enough to satisfy your onslaught of monopolizing every art board that you identify with the name "Loomis". People deserve better and you should know better.

>>1432 Since I am here I might as well explain why I decided to create the new site. Back in September, some drawpile users told me how they wanted us to have our own website; 8chan has a bad reputation, and has a lot of fetish boards. The 8chan.moe/loomis/ BO (Loomis) himself wanted to have an independent /loomis/ site, and even offered to pay me for making it. Moving to anon.cafe/loomis/ is not an option, because Loomis disliked this place for stealing all of the old 8chan.net/loomis/'s assets. Besides, moving to another site still means that we are at someone's mercy, but instead of 8chan.moe's admin it's the anon.cafe's admin. I did not take it seriously up until January, when some people from 8chan.moe's fetish boards showed up and began posting weird stuff. From that moment I decided that 8chan.moe/loomis/ is no longer safe and that we needed our own site. I want to provide our own place where we can do whatever we want without outside influence, because sharing a website with other boards is restricting, and interacting with a site owner that is not from the /loomis/ community is frustrating. Anyways I am not interested in stealing users; people can post wherever they want. I did not receive a single cent from Loomis or anyone else for any of artga.in's services btw. I only did this because I wanted to.
>>1434 btw if the BO or a vol is here, please remove my server's address from the drawpile thread. I no longer wish to associate with this place. If you need proof it's me just join the drawpile.
>>1435 Oh and just to clarify myself: The only reason I came here and posted about our new site ( >>1384 ) is because artchad asked me to. Otherwise I would never have stepped into here. I was not even aware anon.cafe/loomis/ existed and that my server is being promoted until artchad talked about it. In addition, the fact that this shithead ( >>1433 ) is here makes sure I will never care about this place. So rest assured; I have not, and never will attempt to steal users from this deserted board, nor do I ever wish to.
>>1434 >Moving to anon.cafe/loomis/ is not an option, because Loomis disliked this place for stealing all of the old 8chan.net/loomis/'s assets What a bunch of drama, i thought he said it was okay because the original BO intended for this place to be a just-in-case bunker, not a copycat by the same name and assets. Not your fault tho. >moving to another site still means that we are at someone's mercy Sensible decision, understandable from most points. >Thinking .moe was safe to begin with Won't start sperging myself so i'll sidetrack this, but there's a reason this place still had some semblance of use despite the initial move. Shows how much i don't know because by new site i thought it was .moe, this little island is isolated mind you, my distractions have been critical but at least i can see i could do nothing at all anyways other than the possible (and undesirable) pot stirring that doesn't and probably won't cross my mind. Still, despite your position i have no harsh feelings and if something happens you can use this place as a bunker, because as far as i know it was initially supposed to be just that and then later used as a third base for those who disliked .moe and were left marooned after the Julay admin war. I was supposed to be a caretaker along with Artchad, and at least from my part i can say we are still open if some of you fellows have a problem or want to curate stuff by using specific threads here, if anything i will strongly consider a visual re-tooling to separate ourselves as i see there were considerable problems due to being a direct and unsanctioned ramification of Loomis. Can't change the name because if i could i would now that i know this. Thank you for your words too. >>1429 Guess we will need a new CSS, bud, and a couple of new threads.
>>1438 What's even more funny is they don't even advertise there new website on 8chan.moe/loomis oh the comedy, About time we become independent and separate ourselves. Would recommend getting rid of the drawpile thread entirely no one uses it and finding a new host would be a pain and most people here are most traditional artists. Drawpile also creates namefagging which is pretty anti imageboard. Wouldn't mind helping out if u need any
>>1442 >oh the comedy Didn't expect it out of such laid-back board we originally were back then, but that's what happens sometimes and especially after the fall of the old place with the splinters being forced out of the boards. >Wouldn't mind helping out We do have not so much the opportunity but almost rather the moral obligation to change image as the original heads disavowed us for some reason despite my long-standing views we were in line but what should i know, staying the same would be seen as bad in all cases (justly or unjustly). You do touch upon a good point, probably most of us here are paper-based and have other hobbies, we can just focus on an image of quick sketching and conceptual tracing board (a scale down of the usually more complex and human figure focused legacy board) with allowed sidenotes of modelling and art studying threads (as in checking out stuff to comprehend it) so we can add variation while not losing our intention of replicating by our own hand stuff we like. Kinda like /make/ was but with an explicit intention of drawing/designing as the end goal and the rest being a bonus, said designs including not only models but scenes or objects. But this needs a consensus, same with the new CSS being a light or dark one, pruning of old threads or just starting new ones, the focus of the new library that someone (probably me) will have to recreate now that the Mega links probably won't be recreated or reposted and in the future maybe our new name. We all draw so the unoriginal suggestion might be draw :^)
>>1443 Should be called /draw/ all you really need is one thread for drawing and a meta thread, feels thread and a questions that don't deserve there own thread.
>set a day aside to spend drawing <biggest happening of the decade occurs this happens more often that i would like

>>1444 I might say another thread for visual studies aka discuss what and why something we like is like that. Guess i will make a thread about questions to reach a general consensus, all 4 of us. >>1445 Happens to me too when i leave my computer for more than a day or two, famous people start dying or something big happened. With Russia getting into Ukraine i left my PC for 4 days, the most since a long weekend in March '20 right before the pandemic started officially. >>1446 It seems although you are under a lupe now buddy boy

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.
