I wasn't trying to submit anything right now, I already had my submission in. I was asking about this hours ago when I was submitting it and never got a response - see >>2357271 (You) Now that I've seen more submissions go up with it looking like nobody else was having that problem, I decided to ask again now that lava's actually awake and here.

This challenge has helped me a lot since for some weird reason it feels 100x worse to not submit something to the site than just not drawing for a day and since I can see the quality of the other submissions I'd feel even worse for submitting something I didn't really put effort in.
If it wasn't for this challenge I wouldn't have drawn anything in the last 2 weeks.
>>
>>2358122
I'm pretty sure it was established early on in these threads that the idea of the challenge to be last artist standing had no real award, not even having a bigger e-peen (hence in the OP Grand Prize : jack dick).

It's suppose to be self-improvement/community advice, but since there's no critique/low-effort reporting systems in place, we're left with shit-posting. I don't think anyone is actually serious about "going the distance" by having sketched everyday and winning absolutely nothing
>>
>>2358127
youre going to make a bad habit.
>>
>>2358122
It's literally called 'last artist standing', bro
In any case having something to lose by not drawing for a day other than just my dignity has already made me practice more consistently

Then why are you here? You do know a forum is a form of social media? Considering you came into a thread you supposedly had no interest in just to let everyone know how oh so very disinterested you are in it, I'd say you eat a bowl of Salty (You)'s every morning for breakfast.

Fucking retard there are countless of other threads on this board that focus on improving yourself. We've already had many members myself included who've noticed the positive effects of doing this challenge.
"learning how to draw", are you for real? It's something you need to figure out by yourself not by the help of a single challenge. You're not making any bit of sense.

killed the thread because i wasn't seeing any new updates but it's nice to see everyone standing up for the challenge. i don't know what to say to someone who thinks a friendly competition somehow inhibits free thinking. i can't see the cause and effect to connect those dots

he is right about the lack of moderation tools, though, and they're next on the list. i'm finishing up my team forza submission then the following system will go live later tonght. after that it's the report system and then i'll start working on topics.

>>2358140
It looks like you still have your token, that your picture was submitted and that you're still active in the challenge. Was being the eliminated the issue or was it something else? If it was with the auto-thumbnail generation then odds are it's because of the ?1 at the end of the url. It's easy enough to strip query strings and separators like that from URLs but it would have to wait until I update the thumbnail system since all the possible submission options makes it a little complicated
>>
>>2358189
Ah okay. It was no worry of missing the deadline since it was hours before then, I was just wondering why all of a sudden it was requiring a thumbnail when it hadn't before. It's fine though, I ended up making that eye thumbnail to use if it comes up again. I can just reuse the same thumbnail right?
>>
>>2358208
id like to say no since it's better for the gallery if the thumbnail represents either the artist or the art inside it but you can technically use the same thumbnail for every submission. if you strip the ?1 when linking to a submission it'll generate on for you through so no worries

you dont have to make a thumbnail you can just select the same image that you uploaded to your blog or whatever and the site will resize and crop it for you (if you decide to link directly to your blog instead of the image file.) no need to do any photo manipulation to make a special thumbnail. it should only take a couple extra clicks to select the file

Brian's reply >>2358261 of thanks would seem to indicate that they're two different people though and whenever I see his biggest fan posting, I usually see Brian reply to him like that. Obviously they're separate posters. It's just funny how well his fan is able to keep track of him on this anonymous board, even when entirely new topics show up and Brian hasn't really visibly posted in these threads. I just find it interesting is all. But it's neither here nor there, we'll never know how they do it so let's move on.

Or this guy?

>>
>>2358443
no but that's super common on social media. Both of the people you linked have 2k pages of favorites so what they do is favorite literally everything so people cant a notification that hey x favorited your shit in hopes that you'll return the favor or watch their page.

it costs them nothing and it's essentially free advertising

But yeah, that makes sense.
Come to think of it, why is ConceptArt so fucking shit at web programming in comparison? The community is twenty times better than DA, but if DA can handle thousands of people with 2k fucking pages of favorites and load in half a second, why can't CA.org make their pages load at all (and when they do load, it looks like fucking cluttered bullshit)?

the site was cobbled together over the years and it's a slowly dying piece of garbage run by someone who doesn't have the knowledge to fix it. i used to post there 3-4 times per week but after months of the page loading maybe 60% of the time I gave up. i wanted to be a part of that community but it seems to be dying (or the unreliability is killing it)

Sit down and figure out what you really want to do with art. Make a study guide and use LAS as a means to that end. Even if you're just a hobbyist for now, drawing every day will keep your skills sharp in case you do decide to jump in balls deep.

Personally I joined because I want to animate but my drawing isn't where I want it to be. I've been trying to improve, but drawing always takes a backseat to animation exercises. Keeping up with you faggots is forcing me to study seriously.

>>
>>2358604
Hmm there's no way to show the timestamp with the current gallery. You're right that it should be in there but I can't think of a quick way to move the code over from the submissions gallery.

that's partly a lie. it'd only take maybe 10 minutes to do but there's a bug on the page that kills all javascript except for the user tables and I haven't had the time to figure it out yet. I'll add it to the to-do list.

ps: if you use middle click on links you can open links in a new window without losing focus on the current window. this way you can open them all at once then close your way through them.
>>
k you can now follow people by going to their profiles and clicking follow beside their name. submissions of artists you follow appear at the top of the submissions page. also, you can view who you're currently following on your profile (there's now a shortcut to your profile in the top right corner where settings and logout is.)

you can't currently follow users directly from the submissions page since doing it right (using ajax so the page doesn't reload) takes the site down a road I don't want to go down just yet.

actually I'll add it tonight. i've been putting off bringing the site into the 21st century but I'll need to before i can implement the report and notification systems so bear with me while I get it updated

I can't follow people because I like to watch the last minute submissions at the end of the day. If I follow them they don't appear chronologically. Some way to have them still appear as they're posted in the submission page if you have them favourited would be cool.

No follow counts ever for the reason >>2359131 the only thing you will ever compete over is who drew the longest and who participated the most because they incentivize you drawing every day (and, I'll admit, using the site)

if i add follow count then people have an incentive to start appealing to people instead of focusing on improving. i'd rather see the gallery full of studies and gestures over steven universe nsfw fanart.

obviously people can do whatever they want regardless of the site but what the site encourages matters too

i created a quick query to see who has the most followers but accidentally searched for who has followed the most. i didn't fix it because my first thought was to go check out the most popular artists and that's exactly why it wont be on the site either. people should go and find what they like instead of being told who the most people like

Same. I've had an experience with two of those players in different campaigns. You just need to have the balls to tell them to fuck off if they're being tha/tg/uy. It's called that for a reason though, one out of every few people will actually be tha/tg/uy. If you balance being stern about rules plus having certain actions (I.E murder hoboing) have weight in your world and just having a lot of fun and being adaptive to your players play style, good players will stick.

there are sites online that can help you find a group. i consider myself a normie and my experience was pretty great considering i had found a group of strangers to play D&D with on a random online forum (had moved to a new city alone, feeling ttrpg nostalgia from a misspent youth.)

the whole group was like standard d&d tropes. dm was super tryhard and an artist so he made maps and drew characters, the funny guy was a baker and brought free food, the min/maxer worked in IT at some bank and we met at the nerd cave of some NEET with rich parents. group was great until a she-beast joined, the queen bee of the anime club type, and she tried to make everything about her. bailed shortly after that

i was reading something from tehmeh and he said that you're wasting your time if you only ever study and draw from reference, that he wished he had started working from imagination years earlier. thoughts?

i originally planned to git gud then start drawing what i want but im finding more and more people saying that you need to be bad to get good
>>
>>2359834

Honestly, there's just so much information out there that I'm not sure.
I'm just going to keep doing my beginner studies until I get to a certain degree of comfort then branch into imagination. Problem with drawing from imagination is that I have no idea how to start (is it Fun with a Pencil?).
>>
>>2359836
you probably have an end game right? try it, whether it's drawing cute anime girls or painting spaceships or whatever. you'll fucking suck at it but as long as you're not retarded you'll learn something you're bad at and need to improve at

if you never fail then you won't know what to improve at

...
draw and write a fantasy webcomic, complete with rich lore, six fantasy races, a lush open world with pipe dreams of getting an "adult animation" block on some channel television or something or at the very least do a very competently executed independent animation series to go along with it

> middle of the road goal is draw a lot of fanart but fuck that i have studies to do

I fucking know how far I have to go. But I feel like, if I don't get my fundamentals right, I'm shooting myself in the foot before i begin. If I dive into making stuff without understanding the bare foundation of form and construction, I'm a toddler doing finger painting. It amounts to no learning.
>>
>>2359856
you're gonna burn yourself out if all you do is studies, draw shit you actually like on the side, you don't need to show it to anyone if you're preoccupied about the quality.
>>
>>2359859

Either it hasn't kicked in yet, or I have some sort of odd psychosis because I actually find that I'm enjoying my studies.
I'm measuring proportions of a cup (I suck at proportions) and I'm having an absolute blast. Although maybe I haven't hit the point where it gets really really agonizing.

See, I tend to avoid drawing the stuff I like because it makes me all the more aware of how far away I am from the goal and demoralizes me. If I study, it provides me with the comfort that I KNOW I'm taking the steps necessary to become a good artist. I have no emotional attachments to the studies, so they're free to be as shit as they want, so long as I absorbed the lessons I need.

Hey, LavaFlake. I Double submitted today, because I didn't submit yesterday, but the website only registered one of the submissions. I just want to know if I'm still in the game and if it's just some kind of bug. My account name is "shitfingers" btw
>>
>>2359861
studies are comforting. people say theyre boring but it feels good to do them because theyre like these little goals you set for yourself that are easily achievable. it's hard to "fail" at a study and even when you do there's no real emotional attachment to it.

if you enjoy studies then go do some drawing from imagination. try you best to make something that's only you, that truly represents you as an artist and then feel like killing yourself when it's garbage

hopefully you feel that way because the fuck the guys who only what to draw from their imagination, only produce shit and say studies are boring. the people who are happy with where they are are the never-gonna-make-its

I'm kinda the same, only because drawing from reference is super easy. Basically when you draw from reference i'll know where I fucked up and can fix it. Drawing from imagination leads to me fucking everything up. Especially with heads and faces. Everything I can vaguely sorta say they come out right but heads and faces are had to draw from different angles. Yes I know I should reference but even with reference I still fuck up drawing a head from imagination. I won't have any idea where I went wrong which is why I don't do it too often.

Yeah…I won't make it will I?

Hey, LavaFlake? This is going to sound faggy as shit but I'm slightly drunk so here goes anyway.

I really want to thank you for putting this shit up. There was so much I wanted to achieve as far as art goes, but I haven't practiced consistently ever since three years ago. Always just drew a thing or two and gave up for another month. It wasn't that I disliked drawing; it was just breaking through the barrier of constantly judging my own work unproductively that stopped me every time. I had intended to start up again, but with this as an impetus, I rediscovered how much I enjoy this shit. I've gone from drawing for twenty minutes every other month to consistently practicing two or three hours every day (and I want to bump that time up even more). More than that, I feel weird, unsatisfied and even a little itchy if I DON'T draw. I've never had that before. I've never felt the NEED to draw.

Maybe it'll end in a year. Maybe it'll end by next month. Maybe I'll achieve everything I dreamed about. Wherever I do end up, I want to sincerely thank you for it.

I'm heading off to bed. Going to remove this large cock from my mouth beforehand, sorry for being such a faggot.

>>
>>2359972

I think what I like about this thread is that it's just shared motivation (sometimes in the form of joke assassinations and humorous goading of each other to miss the deadline). It's less about the work itself (until we get crits up), and more about adhering to productivity. Nobody here is claiming to be an expert but advice is given. It's hard to get cocky here, because followers are hidden and all compliments are from beginners/intermediates hungry to follow in others' footsteps. And it's not a circlejerk (yet, please don't let it sink that far), because we'll still call people out on shit.

These threads have been simultaneously the most fun and productive. There's no pissing contest, because it's about consistent work not quality/followers. There's no serious arguments because our egos aren't on the line. All that's here is a mutual drive to keep on improving ourselves.

God I hope this lasts.

a lot of people shit on the challenge and say that there will only be 30 people left after a couple months. i wouldn't be surprised if there are only 30 left in the original challenge but I hope the eliminated don't give up.

i mean, sure, it would be great if they joined a new challenge and kept going but since there have been so many stories about how the challenges motivate them when they usually struggle without it. it'd suck if they get eliminated then leave both the site and, most importantly, art behind.

i'm going to add to the to-do list that the challenges page should show a breakdown of challenge participants. people who were eliminated and came back, people joining for the first time, people who are in previous challenges and the eliminated. maybe people will be more inclined to rejoin if they see that being eliminated isn't the end of the world and that others didn't give up

Charcoal's actually pretty forgiving up until you work the surface too much. I've made very clean charcoal drawings, but the strength of the medium is how much much you can draw, erase, and redraw to give depth, in my opinion.
The only drawback is the powder and mess it makes, personally.

Guys I feel in the obligation to tell you that we, as a community, are crossing a line that might be irreversible.

How do you know how many views?

>>2360995
imgur tells you.

>tfw views steadily decreased from over 100 to less than 10 over the week

If you're doing this for views, you're doing it wrong.
>>
>>2361006
>>2360992
If you post the "direct link" image url rather than just "link", it won't tell you how many views and also people that click that link aren't taken to a page that also shows your ingur username etc, they're just taken to the image.
Be kind to yourself, use the direct link and skip all that ego bullshit. If anyone had anything important to say about your work they would say it in these threads.
>>
>>2361010
I'm not but views would still be nice.
>>
>>2361011
I post the direct link but I can still see the views from my profile.

Well I'll be fucking damned, you're right.
I wish I didn't know that, I'll probably have to swap upload service now because I'll start to get obsessed.

You can always remove the file extension and the "i." before "imgur" to get to the page with all that information.
