>generic frontal view
>obligatory eyes looking away at a random corner in space
>The usual bust shot with nothing to show for the figure
The thing that triggers me the most is the fact that almost everyone on /ic/ does this bullshit where they have the eyes looking off at some random corner what the fuck is this shit cut that out I mean even this generic drawing of a head would of looked a little bit more interesting if the numskull had her eyes focusing on the viewer and it would of been able to give some kind of emotion this is as bland as it can get.
kek I didn't even notice the LAS text
Now it's even funnier
We don't need to bully the guy for using his own picture though it is a tad vain. However we agreed that there wouldn't be new threads until the current one hits page 9, so you're too early OP.
don't think we don't know who you are faggot, the moment i find your submission i'll make it my life mission to get you kicked out cuck pirate.
You can hate me or love me I don't care. I was shit in art class but now I know I'm bad but I proud how bad I'm.
One day, Rover will be ok to do his thing but now I need moar work....but I love my work.
I love you LAS... because LAS is Rover.
We all wanna be good, we are all dogs....
Hey lava can you add a drag n drop option.
Back in the game
Here's my 1 hour drawings
I even drew at work on postit notes. No pain no gain
You guys flocked over here though. You could've ignored it until a proper one was made. OP was a genius by using that image, he knew you all wouldn't be able to resist gathering around to throw stones and now we're all trapped here.
fuck you lava im going to have sex one day
Then you should compare like works
>First month of 2 minute gestures
>3 months later
>10 minute painting, first thing ever painted
>2 months later
>15 minute painting from first week of learning to paint
>2 months later
>30 minute painting, 1 month into painting
>3 months later
Direct comparisons shows actual progress. Like how I don't paint as much as I should or how I never really understood what gesture drawing was. Comparing one of your earlier characters, most likely from imagination, to a perspective exercise doesn't give us much to go on.
as soon as I posted it I tried to delete the file but it said that I had to wait. I have smugger faces I promise
ps i typed this up for my original reply but decided against posting it because i didn't want to be that guy. You know, /that guy/
Wonderful these threads have evolved into a new level of faggotry name fags and tripfags. Don't forget to include a signature for every post so everyone will know exactly who you are!
I'm gonna wait till season 1 is done and start at season 2. It doesn't feel fair if I was to join now when other people have already made 30 pieces. Then again, who knows how stubborn the competition can be. Good luck everyone
You've been eliminated already haven't you senpai.
Memes aside I don't think anyone aside from Rover has been named.
Lava doesn't count he's admin. Well there's some anon who linked his drawing but since he was smug and wasn't asking for critiques I ignored him as everyone else should.
Don't be too dramatic.
minute painting, first thing ever painted
minute painting from first week of learning to paint
minute painting, 1 month into painting
I'm still on keys and E. Olson
I just wanted to say I bad but I'm working hard to be meh:)
don't wait there is no season 2. every week there's a new challenge so join now and you'll be in #4. next week if you keep submitting you'll be in #4 and #5, repeat forever. right now everyone only cares about #1 but when that's over people will care about #2, etc and then some day people will care about you
Its always to see someones improvement. Especially since I feel like my own art hasn't improved at all for months. Maybe its just my brain playing tricks on me.. or I might be horribly stagnated or worse, regressing.
Generally I like these reaction images but I found this one to be a little lacking.
Cool, I guess I should have joined when It started but I was still apprehensive about the process, And would rather remain truly anonymous to avoid being targeted like every trip on this board
it's always sunny to see someone's improvement
I have plenty but I needed a mocking mugi one and normally she just looks smug. Smugi-chan.
Its the principles why the fuck do you faggots get to make these threads when there's absolutely no art posted no critiques given it is all shitposting and trying to earn a fucking name on an Anonymous chinese cartoon image board fuck off
Upon this I'm asking, why are you so mad and why is your ego so hurt over something as insignificant as a thread on a slow board from 4chan on internet?
This is exactly this, you're getting triggered and get uneasy looking at people having their fun and because you are not part of it you automatically think you are superior to any of us. Your anxiety and mental illness are getting in the way of making you see things as they truly are, your perspective is clouded, your ego-centrism is eating on your flesh as we speak.
So I'm asking : why haven't you ended it yet?
>tfw be the first to notice Stella
>niggaz already be stealin my ho
Keep it in your containment zone, in your website this is not your personal blog about how you're a daredevil and post in the last minute or posting about muh views and muh followers.
If these threads continue we might as well make threads about how our daily lives are going and what music you listen to while you draw and who unfollowed you recently. The point is these threads have no purpose other than socialize as if this place where fucking twitter either post work and critique here and make it look like as if it is relevant or fuck off.
Threads about feeling bad are ok
Threads to make fun of people are ok
Threads to encourage each other are not ok
We should probably critique each other more but even without that being the focus there are still half a dozen call outs every thread and people asking for help. It could be better but these threads aren't the cancer you're describing
>Threads about feeling bad are ok
No, I remember a Mod had to come over once before and post to fuck off to >>>/adv/
>Threads to make fun of people are ok
No, every now and then a Kr0n or Sakimichan thread gets pruned.
>Threads to encourage each other are not ok
Precisely this is not your hugbox environment if you want someone to pat you in the ass go to Deviant Art.
You people getting triggered over LAS are really sad. Go out for a walk, fap or something.
The irony is you're trying to show you're a 4chan anon to the bones to everyone by trying to teach the right etiquette to everyone else all while forgetting that 4chan is actually against these sorts of righteousness attitudes. Go fuck yourselves already, no one fucking cares about your depression, go heal your traumas elsewhere you fucks.
want me to turn on location tracking when i make the photo also?
>No, I remember a Mod had to come over once before and post to fuck off to >>>/adv/
There has been at least one mod in these threads deleting over the top shitposts. They're at least aware of what we're doing here. I honestly hope a mod doesn't ask us to stop because I think we're doing more good than harm with these threads.
You also ignored the part where hey we do critique each others work regularly. It's just not as big a priority as it should be
This, and it would be hypocritical since there are also other threads floating around on /c/ aimed at making people draw X things per Y days, etc.
If they end up fucking with us we can just summon Hiro. Pretty sure he'd yap the issue.
Every single time a thread aimed at anything productive starts, there's always this one assblasted faggot who jumps in and starts shitposting. Every study thread, every Challenge Prompt thread, everything that could swing this wayward board back to the Artwork side of artwork and critique, this mother fucker pounces on it. And yes I'm convinced it's mostly just one guy. We need to just ignore him.
because people ask dumb questions
imagine a kid next to you asking you the good old "Why" and just doesn't fucking stop
and the worst is you cannot even punch it because it's somewhere else on the globe
pixel everything about that pose looks uncomfortable. trying holding a book like that and you'll feel the pain in your wrist, it should be more perpendicular with the ground. i don't know why you'd do that with your hips unless you're doing something with your feet like taking your socks off or something involving the feet
the hips and book need looking at
sure, it should be around here somewhere
but be warned, it is not for beginners. you have to have a good understanding and construction before you tackle this book. it features all kinds of extreme angles and foreshortening views. it's hard tier ref.
good fucking god
i hate you photoshop, I hate you wacom
PS is rejecting my tablet's drivers like antibodies would a fucking disease or virus
it's pissing me off to no end
mid drawing it freezes and the drivers are gone, no pressure sensitivity fucking nothing
I am switching to Krita for good
I will win LAS.
Save yourself some time and drop out. Just a friendly advice, m'anons.
>tfw you finally manage to draw something that doesn't look like absolute ass
Feels good fampai.
>mfw have to draw random stuff and shitty porn last minute to beat the deadline
just fucking kill me
if i ever get good enough to write an art book i sure as hell am going to put in some "student attempts" to say "haha, don't worry, you're trying your best"
please stop shoving industry professionals' sketches up my ass my anal cavity has already ruptured and the tears won't fucking stop
>implying you wont fall to my feet like all the rest
>mfw trying to draw at record pace while starving for food
>mfw LAS comes before nutrition
Minor feature suggestion:
Everybody has a "clan badge" on their profile. Have the system track your posting tendencies over the last two weeks. If the vast majority of your submissions have been before 00:30, you are labeled as Forza. If the vast majority of your submissions have been after 23:30, you are labeled as 23:30. If neither, you're labeled as Freeman.
I tried to anon, but I fucked it up. To make things worse it looks like I didn't draw for 30 minutes.
Serves you guys right.
There's like zero reason to post immediately before the deadline.
> "oh but the thrill"
Just play Tea Sim if you want a "as-close-to-the-deadline-as-possible" simulator.
no cheating, you can absolutely submit at 23:59:59. Most likely what happened is a) you missed it or even more likely b) your pc's clock isn't the exact same as the server's clock
for example my pc's clock is 30 seconds faster than the server. the latest i can submit at is 23:59:30 because on my side it locks it out saying it's already 00:00:00.
oh and unrelated: I spent a gross amount of time trying to find a way to keep track of which submissions you have/haven't viewed and it was all a waste of time. i'm going to have to abandon it for now if i want topics to be ready for the next challenge
Lava pls bring rebound challenges, like getting your token back early when respecting a challenge theme (or modifier to the standard theme) consistently, or something similar. It might motivate people to push hard and keep going instead of getting discouraged and giving up.
the token was added for emergencies/acts of god and from what i can tell the people who end up using their tokens are because they over slept or they put off their submission until the last possible moment. i think it's a bad idea to further enable that behavior by allowed people to earn their tokens back
When does the next LAS start?
I just got eliminated, I'm the anon with the number problem who mentioned putting up Rover posters to help, and now I've been eliminated for the second time. I can't do anything right.
Trialing 'ROVER' sticky notes when the next one opens up.
Don't listen to these lies it's a trap, forza is trying to eliminate the competition.
For real though, a few days ago I managed to submit as the "1 second remaining" on the timer ticked over to 0, keeping an eye on pc clock too to make sure they were synced. Today I let that final second tick over to 0 before submitting to see if it was possible and there was no 0, just instant lockout. PC clock identical.
As someone that just lost their token in a really dumb way, I don't think there should be a way to earn them.
I'm fairly sure they looked synced because the page countdown is based on your computer's time, not the server's. Otherwise there wouldn't be trouble when your computer's clock is wrong.
the fix would be telling the server to say "countdown from the number of seconds until 00:00:00" instead of "countdown to 00:00:00." That way your PC's time doesn't matter
everyone's welcome, you can be the best or the worst
there's no real way to test it on your side. if your pc's time is ahead then if you submit at 23:59:59 it'll be less than that on the server. If your pc is behin then you'll submit too late and have your token eaten or be eliminated
It's time to incite revolution. Let's do this at 12:00 GMT.
The Midday Marauders will take LAS by storm.
Can't do. That's like 2pm here. The only reason I'm practically in /2330/ is that I keep drawing till the deadline and I don't have the energy to work on another one for /forza/ afterwards. And I can't bring myself to only posting a portion of it or something on the other day.
Same as me, can't bring myself to keep going after midnight. But if it wasn't for this challenge I wouldn't be drawing at all. I've been managing to push myself to start an hour or two early.
I already draw 1-3 hours throughout the day. But like I said I always end up posting everything I've drawn when the deadline comes closer. I'll try joining /forza/ tomorrow though, but the only issue with /2330/ for me is that I've slept on submitting my drawings a few times.
I'm seriously pulling an all nighter today just because I couldn't stop drawing the whole day. Not sure if I'm supposed to be happy about this. I'm blaming Lava if I drop out.
I don't know, I'm feeling pretty broken so just having to see that 'you've been eliminated!' text again is awful. I'll wait until the next one, I'm never going to win LAS I just want to make it a month.
make fanart and get closed beta keys. entry closes on feb 5th
here are the heroes
>tfw you've got your first commission and the past few weeks of shit-posts, consistent drawing, and exploration made you feel confident enough to start getting paid for your work
So, right now I'm reviewing anatomy. When that's done, should I move on to Olson's perspective series or go through Keys to Drawing? I skipped keys and I'm afraid there are important things I missed.
Bless Lava and all the other participants. I love watching everyone grow.
My skill level is nothing impressive. But there's less (technically) experienced artists than me that have been receiving a fair amount of commissions for years, so I think as long as you've got an audience, you'll get a commission.
Yep I've had pros tell me that 90% of the reason people commission something is because they like the artist, not because of their art. I had people inquiring about commissions when I was 2-3 months in and I was (and still am) garbage tier
This was honestly the biggest barrier to my learning to draw. As dumb as it is.
I'd see flawless execution on all these entry level exercises and feel terrible when I couldn't match it. Like, I knew that I shouldn't compare myself to an established artist, but it's difficult to read 'this is a simple, brief version,' and realize I can't get anywhere close.
I had to just say fuck it at some point though. As long as I'm hard on myself and direct criticism at weak points I can kick myself up to respectable hobbyist level.
I think Keys to Drawing should be done before anything else. The book is kind of light, browse it and see by yourself if you'd gain from doing it. Don't keep that uneasy feeling hanging around.
Hey, yeah. I can't take credit for it though, seeing it's a quick & failed shot at figuring out the color use in this. I'm struggling with values and color.
I'm taking a break now, probably should have sooner. Luckily if I was fucking up it was on a copy file so I can still go back to my starting point but I'm starting to think I just can't pull it off either way.
We can't fully answer these questions for you, just do it anon and see by yourself. Like I told you Keys to Drawing is light to read (especially if you can draw already) and the exercises inside aren't a big deal, it's not exactly a huge commitment.
interesting, do you think people make decent money making phone covers? or phone covers commissions? oh my now i'm tempted..
the automated elimination has been working for days and i want to go to bed but i'm afraid that the one time i don't watch it run it's going to fail. 6 more hours i can do it. i'll spend that time arting
>Ctrl F name
>Doesn't show up
And let it stay that way, the less attention I get, the more likely I'll win this thing.
>mfw lava oversleeps an entire day because of sleep deprivation
>Realize I waste too much time in the morning browsing the internet and don't have enough time to really draw as much
>Decide to get up 2 hours earlier than normal
>Still browse the internet for 2 hours before I start
I have terrible self control
Fuggg, i should start drawing for my forza submission instead of playing MH4U
Yeah but I still think it's only one guy and I'm sure we can ignore him. If not a few anons can screw around with him for a while like cats chasing a cat toy. If ever the two particular retards I'm hiding from start coming in here though I'm dropping the whole thing.
>do 2 hours of 5 min quick sketches
>they're all shit
>into the trash they go
Not related but I made these Lovecraft themed stamps for university and I think they turned out bretty gud
lava, can you fix the thumbnail thing if u have time in the future. It says that if one links directly to an image link that they don't need to upload a thumbnail. It doesn't work (for me at least).
http://i.imgur.com/XXXXXX.jpg < link format
the problem is the pic is almost always too big so i have to crop and stuff. its not very hard im not looking for an immediate fix but it could be nice for a future update
Finally the shame of elimination is fading, feels good to be free, just going to shitpost a bit before I join the next LAS
They are actually my favourite, I tried to find their blog but couldn't
I think people stopped caring if they got eliminated after what happaned a few threads ago when that one dude whom i cant remember the name of got eliminated and everyone talked about
ive been drawing asses all day, im debating weather to cum on the paper and submit it.
I agree and understand fapping can fuck with your motivation and such but I don't believe completely stopping fapping is the solution. It's actually completely ridiculous and hearing people say "I haven't fapped in x months" make me cringe (unless they're sexually active in this case ok but this is never the case here).
What you need to do is to stop watching porn or doing quick stupid impulsive faps. Those are 99% bad. If you want to fap do it in the morning or before going to bed, alone, without any computer or anything. Pleasure yourself, make yourself happy, make love to yourself, don't "beat your dick" - actually learn how to make yourself orgasm better. It's human and natural, besides it's healthy, you need to ejaculate once every few days.
>LAS 1 ends in 2017
>Every single one of his submissions is Sonic related
>Nobody goes pro
Calling it now
It works for me, I feel like I have the upper hand here, I hope you faggots fap 10 times a day and only draw furry porn while Im on some buddhist shit cranking out stacks of fundies.
If I make the mistake of watching porn I can easily end up fapping for anything from 3 to 6 hours, it's a slippery slope. Is this a thread on fapping now?
But seriously, wanking to your imagination is the best famillion.
if your finding a hard time feeling any sort of emotion or physical pleasure you're most likely depressed m8
>while Im on some buddhist shit cranking out stacks of fundies
I'm Buddhist actually, sex isn't a taboo for us, far from it, some of our branches' teachings are related to sex and orgasm.
I will not go as far as saying you are leading your life wrong of course but you should perhaps reconsider your perspective.
>LAS 1 Never ends
>Imortality is discovered so saucy never stops
>Year 202020 Saucy is now carving 4d holographic sonics cumming into multiple theoretical dimensions
>Still nobody goes pro
Well on this case we agree, I said it up there too, porn and stuff are just plain trash. I do enjoy looking at porn, ero, hentai, ecchi whatever a lot though, but it's because I like art, I never fap to them, it'd just be a waste.

More than half have been eliminated after little less than a month. That's insane.
If you are eliminated at any time now, you have performed above average comparatively.
In the challenges tab, could the usernames paired with the images also be labeled with the lowest-numbered challenge that they are actively participating in (or inactive, if recently dropped)?
>it's a slippery slope
I hope you're a grill making an innuendo
What if I described the photo to you?
It depicts a girl in a gray tshirt with an upset face and holding a middle finger in front, presumably Stella, since Google reverse image search yields no results. She's a dark shade of blonde. I've masturbated several times to it since it was posted.
Anons who were in that thread can confirm
