>>109 >Maybe editing the OP to say this isn't the usual /loomis/ drawthread could work. I don't know. Duly noted, I'll brainstorm some ideas and edit it with the ones I think are the best, while also making the REAL /loomis/ drawthread more visible. On that note... Anything else I can do to make the board better for you? > Anyways, I told a few drawfriends about this board reviving. Thank you so much. I wish to make this place as cozy as possible while waiting for another side project that may or may not involve several boards. >You shouldn't advertise only on /v/'s cakehole. I don't see posts anywhere else, too. I mainly did so because I'm sure drawfags from there pitched in on old /loomis/ from time to time and their own /loomis/ was a barren wasteland. Probably going to see if the guy who owns 8moe/loomis/ wants to cooperate with us, don't know much about him anyhow.
>/loomis/ on a site that doesn't suck with 41 pph YES THANK GOD

>>213 How the fuck is /loomis/ getting so much traction?
>>256 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Accept it...
>>256 It gives the people what they want.
>>189 >>264 Something feels off. Anyone?
>>266 If the BO promoted this in bad places then the fix is already in and it's a matter of when instead if this boat is going to be rocked. /v/ already had someone at the helm who didn't listen to his userbase and opened the doors to bad agents that ousted him, at least some of us can see something's up as for starters /loomis/ rarely had this much activity and people rarely discussed those sort of things, although it's early in the game and there's also almost no one feeling depressed like in the old place either. If you want more examples you have >>259 >>213 And while it's something with the heart in the right place, pandering to what people know instead of setting our own rules, regarding the title of "Drawthread", is already a precedent being set up.
>>268 I see nothing wrong with >>213 or >>259 , explain.
>>268 I don't think it's exactly the BO shilling the board, it's more likely to be crossposters and other newfags doing it. /hgg/ has had similar problems of people posting links to the board everywhere they don't want it to be posted in.
>>269 1. Inter-webring fling out of thin air unless an 8k incident went over my head. 2. xDposting Not saying they are elite beat agents trying to subvert us into drinking soy, i just find it odd. Might be the early days syndrome. >>270 See: >>114 I feel uncomfortable throwing rocks at the BO, so far he has been shining and the CSS has also been implemented AND fixed. Makes me want to draw again.
>>271 1.Julay imploded and you should've seen it, 8moe sucks, and there are a few more chances for /loomis/ having appeared in a different bad website. 2.Eh. Posting about this board on 8moe should be fine. Listen, I'm talking about actual problems. Someone posting a emoji is cancerous but its not time to say shills are coming to destroy the board.
>>272 Agree. Also i saw the implosion first hand, a combination of several incidents which are mostly from foreign manufacture. Hope i get some drawings by this weekend and see if i can upload some PDFs.
>>268 >If the BO promoted this in bad places then the fix is already in and it's a matter of when instead if this boat is going to be rocked. Then I guess I'll just have to be the best BO you've ever seen, I promise you I'll do everything in my capacity to make this a board you wanna use instead of glossing over it occasionally. Any grievances you have, come here and I'll try and do something about them.
>>271 >I feel uncomfortable throwing rocks at the BO, so far he has been shining and the CSS has also been implemented AND fixed. Makes me want to draw again. Glad you liked the CSS, but it's not mine! Some intrepid anon has been making a splendorous one for quite a few iterations of the board. It truly feels like you're posting on a canvas, isn't it? Ah right, the megas... I gotta be on the level with you: the starter packs are stuff that I find on drawthreads or online in general, they don't have any true rhyme or reason to them but they're fun to browse and occasionally you may find something that sticks out and really speaks to you. I'll update them right now, so check 'em. If they get nuked, notify me.

>>271 >>303 ...Aaaand it's done! Grab them while they're hot!
>>290 You are already doing a great job, i cannot ask of you when i haven't supported this place like i should. Keep going without fear, just don't be hesitant to use force if things get ugly.
>>379 >Keep going without fear, just don't be hesitant to use force if things get ugly. Got it. I do have some more art related stuff, but it's not properly /loomis/ based so I'll wait for the board to pick up before adding them.
>>270 Well, I'm generally not one to shill (I mean, outside of places that are already interested in the board in the first place), but if you've got any good ideas for places that might be interested in coming here, do whatever you want. I'd actually appreciate some exposure like that.
Huh, activity died down after the first two days, uh. Let me at least share this here before I lose it again: https://twitter.com/kurosuke033/status/1240762088223432704

Like many boards after the bunker saga, we are scattered. People who used /loomis/ might've just been so demoralized they gave up. Exploring the webring is the biggest casual filter in recent times. The fact we have around 4+ different sites to choose from doesn't make things better. Theoretically, the best solution is to just roost and nest somewhere, adding URL signatures to drawings we do and see if people wanna check it out. I don't know, I'm just throwing things out.
>>405 Hah, it is partially my fault for not keeping up with the advertising. Sadly some real life stuff came up two days after I got it started and it won't be over until Sunday. But rest assured, I'm not giving up on /loomis/ at all.
>>26 On a scale of erotic adult nudity to getting on an FBI watchlist, what level of lewdness is OK for this board?
>>490 The board is NSFW so technically it's ok as long as you spoiler it. If you're referring to loli then I don't know
what is this place this is cool can i post my drawings and get cnc
>>531 Discord is cancer and it asks for phone numbers.
>Spammers found this board Oh great.

I reported the offending posts 2 days ago, where is the BO/BV?
>>545 Sorry, got tangled with RL shit, I'll look into them. What seems to be the problem?
>>545 Ah, I see. Just some dumbass spamming porn, luckily. I was afraid it was much worse. Thanks for your cooperation and patience, my friend.
>>490 You can draw whatever you like. If it's risque, please, consider using spoilers.
>>490 Everything is allows as long as it's not black dick in white pussy. Keep it clean.

Where did all of these /loomis/ splinter boards come from all of the sudden? I should have known people wouldn't have taken how shitty the new 8gag rebrand is sitting down-but if anyone'd like to hang out with us over there (there as in "8kun.top/loomis") we're still at it, for better or worse.
>>588 I thank you for your offer, but I refuse. 8kun has terrible performance issues and it's a dying website. If the rumors are true, there's a big reform coming your way, too. This place is pretty comfy.
>>589 anon.cafe is comfy.
>>588 Nice construction. I usually use very rough sketches for construction and then clean them up onece or twice. This allows me to modify the animation quite a bit between the steps, which gives me the freedom to play with perspective and foreshortening.
>>588 From what I've seen, cafe/loomis/ is a different community entirely to 8kun/loomis/, with cafe failing to really poach any users, and 8kun moving as fast as ever. I believe art discussion and sharing has overall increased between the two boards' pph.

>>593 Thanks, it's not my design to be honest. I'm just following along with the "AMB Real Animator Training" material. It's good stuff! >>598 Oh yeah, I'm not butthurt about it or anything. I was just surprised to wake up one day and find that my five year old board was quite successfully recreated elsewhere on several different websites. I can tell the BO here cares about the board's purpose as much as I do and that's all that matters-you've all even contributed your own content to the overall design such as the spoilers which are really well done. I'm happy! The only difference between us as far as I can tell is that I don't care for hosting local request threads, but I also understand that art requests are a big part of chan culture back to the beginning. I would rather see users-should they so choose-to fulfill requests purely out of self-interest and on other boards where they can bring positive attention to themselves and/or their social media. An unpaid request is still a "transactional" thing in my opinion; the person who requested the art gets something they want with zero effort, you the artist whether you've spent ten minutes fulfilling the request or five hours should get something out of the deal as well, even if it's something as flippant as a few more (You)s, a new follower or two on Twitter or even a new long term poster on this board of yours by shouting it out on delivery. Unfortunately none of that can really happen if the request is fulfilled on the board itself. Just how I personally about it, I'm not telling anybody what to do or how to do it. Anyway! Keep it up guys, I like what I see so far; I hope your board grows strong and lots of anons are able to improve their art. That's what it's all about.
>>546 >got tangled with RL shit No Vols?
>>668 Sadly it's just me. I've asked to another couple of people to help me out with the administration though.
Kunt's doing a drawpile now. This one's from yesterday.
Didn't see any resources thread so I wanted to share this website if anons ever need poses https://webapp.magicposer.com/ It works for me so it may work for someone else
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...
>>770 But since you're here, let me tell you something >Forcing even more people to use discord or miss out You need to go away.

Note to all artists who only upload to twitter and don't care about image quality: What's the point?
>>825 Given that I've recently heard several Gook twitter artists had to clean their whole archives because of censorship laws, very little outside of having more exposure I guess. Fuck most social media.
>>826 That's not the point, exactly.
