OKAY GUYS IT'S TIME, LAS POLL :
>I want to come inside of Stella
This forced meme shit is even worse than "Rover?"
can't we let lava make these threads instead of tumblr trying to take control of this?
you did it, champ, the rope awaits now
you can tell satan all about your achievements on this mortal realm
i can guaranty you that this will get worse before it gets better, you are my engine my inspiration.
>none of those are mine
liar, liar, your house on fire
Buy a phone to take a picture of my work so I don't have to use tablet. Accidentally lock the phone.
That is two hours of wasted work.
Now I have to do another two hours.
Maybe I should just do a rover and post shitty dog.
We /r9k/ now
But seriously, wasn't there a thread where people tried to say that /ic/ wasn't weird about girls? Because obviously they can't fucking act like normal people if they even know a gril is sharing their imageboard
you have to understand this thread especially is now tumblr turf
the men on there are so desperate for pussy since all and every female bodied "person" on tumblr identifies as a social retard
i think he's saying that the thread is tumblr-like. whenever the thread is on the front page a bunch of butthurt autist/ic/s like to shit it up in here. my favorite are the guys who say that encouraging each other to draw will make you a worse artist
can you not read
do you want me to spell it out for you like I would for somebody who plays League of Legends daily and lives with this shame and mental handicap as if it were no big deal but deep down they know they are disgusting, brain dead zombies, wasting away in their homes, working 9 to 5 in McAssburgers, begging god to grant them the salvation that is death, quick and painless?
tumblr is the cancer eating away /ic/
> mass generalizations, baseless assumptions, logical leaps
> stop liking what I don't like
> you liking what I don't like oppresses me because I can't just not watch you liking what I don't like
You're right, you are the cancer that's eating /ic/.
So i magine the tumbrl comparison comes from the hugboxy nature this specific general has? I though it was because it was taking away trafic from other threads making them more slow. Kek i almost saw lava as a god master ruseman.
Just a few threads back everyone was chill and encouraging each other, now people are trying to out-troll each other on being /b/tier to Stella and are complaining about tumblr
Nobody's even posting Rover memes
You guys need to chill. Right now it's literally arguing for the sake of arguing. We get it, tumblr is shit and we don't like it but that's no reason to fight over it.
Also stop trying to white knight for Stella, I'm pretty sure she knows how to take a joke, she wouldn't be on 4chan otherwise.
>trick people into drawing every day
>get thanked for saving and accused of ruining ic every day
These shoulders aren't going to poorly draw themselves.
ps the site may go down for 5-10 mins tonight after the roll over. I'd like to move the report system over but I'll do some more testing first. i'll post in the thread first and give a warning
>All of this tumblr bitching
Where did this come from? These threads aren't really tumblry at all. Sure there's a significant number of people using tumblr for their submissions, but only a couple (that I've noticed) look like they're from "true" tumblrites. And most of the shit in these threads is memes,
>I imagine the final poll will be the one on the challenges being a weekly or a daily thing..
What do you guys think about this? I like the idea of a week being consistent within itself, but if the prompt is too specific it could get boring. I think it would be best to have an overarching theme with a different relevant challenge each day. For instance, if the week's theme was anatomy, the days could be heads, hands, feet, upper body, lower body, full body, then whichever you feel you still need to work the most on, Or something along those lines. If we had a week about value and/or color, the prompts could be technically specific like low/high contrast, warm/cool colors, etc, or it could be different moods for each day and you need to portray that in thumbnails. But it might also be too restricting to have a daily challenge, so I'd be happy with broad week-long ones as well. For instance in the anatomy week, you could get away with doing any sort of anatomy study each day, instead of being forced to draw something specific. But on the other hand, we might run out of broad topics pretty quickly unless we do a sort of circuit of fundamentals, with funner stuff thrown in here and there, and something narrow like a specific mood might get boring to do for seven days in a row. Or it could be interesting, since you'd be forced to do a bunch of different takes on it and you could produce some great ideas from the creativity exercise. So I guess I can see all sides of it, someone please give their input to help me cement my opinion.
That's a pretty mean trick, giving us a reason to fix our shitty work ethics.
that's better than the sign and share every sketch mentality. it's better to know you're bad while gitting gud than it is to think you're good while being bad
What's wrong with these people. Do they actually think they're good?
Do not listen to the triggered one.
You are the savior of /ic/ to me Lava
>let children grow up with an ego the size of your mom
>not a bad thing
anon, mockery is a tool to shape character
if everyone is told how much of a winner they are regardless what they do that's bad
While on the internet I agree, in real life I would never shit on an 11 year old for trying something out. I guess it's a double standard I have.
it's fine to not shit on a kid irl, online they have to be taken down a couple notches if they publicly make an ass out of themselves and their families
So about the Update option.. I haven't used it once since this all began, and at the start i heard lava making changes to it, etc., but i didn't pay attention. So the update button replaces or adds an image..?
I think it looks good, actually. The far leg looked off to me at first because I thought she was supposed to be doing a split, but considering it as a stretch I don't see anything wrong with it.
>You did it! Your submission has been accepted and can be seen on the submissions page and on your profile. If you submitted the wrong image or would like to change your submission use the field below and click "Update."
from the form on the site
Thank you but I think that's where the logic problem comes in. She is supposed to be doing a split, so there's better ways of conveying that. If she's stretching, there are other things that should technically change. Right now it's like this hybrid pose that kind of doesn't make sense, but with the exception of the back pointing leg which I want to tweak anyway, I really do like it. And the ear but yeah.
you can submit when you wake up at 06:30 when you wake up instead of staying up an extra 1.5. nothing wrong with being a nooner
i'd like it more if the legs were like this
it's weird seeing the legs twisted as they are. did you use a ref? i wasn't able to find one similar to your where the front toes and back heel point out
Yeah I hadn't decided on the exact turn the legs and feet would be doing because I wasn't clear on the pose. If I keep the arms and torso like this, I'm thinking I would take the front one and turn it so the bottom of the foot is showing, and have the back one bend in and rest on its side. If I change the legs like in your pic, I'd have to redo the arms and torso so it looks more like splits than a stretch, but I'm more fond of how the arms are looking. I didn't use a ref because I wanted to see how far I could go without one but now I can check some to help get the exact details figured out.
PLS no circlejerk
PLS no talking about other sites
PLS only art related talk
What about my forza posts? will i be fast enough?
>Literally falling asleep at desk, finishing submission
>Was going to write an apology for posting so many WIP updates instead of something new
>Write something, decide against it
>Accidentally upload without removing text
I already replaced it with a textless version as soon as I noticed but I just found it again and thought it was funny, so I'm putting it here. Take it as a lesson to make sure you're fully awake when you submit.
>try to submit my entry
>upload it successfully
>decide to check out my submissions to make sure that it went in
>instead of it going to LAS 4 it went to 5 instead
Anyone happen to know how to upload to a previous one that you're already in or did I miss a day?
Who the fuck is this guy that's been drawing sanic every day
I'll have a hearty kek (but also sadness) if he drops 3 days in after the dramatic post about motivation on his tumblr. I'm guessing he's just using the time available, though. But he dropped once before so who knows. Not on irc or any other signs of life so might actually drop.
>it's Shadow's model but Sonic's color scheme
I kind of want someone's feedback on whether or not they think I'm actually learning/improving based on the month of submissions I've done so far but I'm hesitant to drop my name in fear of assassination by Loomis or Anon313 or being called an attention whore.
>tfw had to resort to using Photoshit CS2
I tried I suppose
All my practice images are kept in a DA gallery.
Am I making progress or am I plodding along like an idiot? Should I focus my practice a bit more on specific topics?
How do i paint digitally with Photoshop? It has always been my favorite program for editing, but when painting it feels cluttered as fuck.
I always end up using SAI or some other software.
>tfw you want to have a better submission than yesterday
>tfw you actually make a worse submission than yesterday
I need help
I'll take those autists over dumblr any day
i think you're slowly improving, if you don't do it already, keep grinding those line control exercises, maybe just give it 5 to 10 minutes a day if you don't have much time for art but don't skip it.
I'd rather have a little indicator on the submissions page that you can mouseover for a list. Like if you have it set to split submissions then in that section there'd be an icon you can mouseover
Ye I noticed it all too late.The eye's a tad messed up but I didn't realize the mouth was so off too.
Spent way too much time trying to make it look even remotely right, don't think I learned much but I'm one step closer to becoming a Lexmark(tm) Pro photocopier.
you got that intense look which is almost as important so there's that
Hnggg, almost let's me forget about that god awful nose ring
key to success: look back a month or more, never less
So, I'm the guy behind the cyberpunk helmet meme, the "Rover?" images and I used to be a shitposter in these threads but I got banned. See you in a week.
I was responsible for about 70% of all memes and shitposts in LAS, and I samefagged a lot. I apologize.
I won't shitpost anymore, but can we please stop with the Tumblr bullshit? And for the love of god ignore the trolls who come here to spread salt.
got banned for "advertising" according to the mods, but I didn't fucking advertise anything, I just recommended a site and some retard must have reported it. Maybe it was just a mentally disabled mod, who knows.
Don't laugh at my disability
Memes are a terminal disease
hahahaha that was me I also got some underaged thrown in jail and hopefully nile along with them
by the way ban evading is global offense
I still don't know the reasoning behind the name, can you shed some light on that? I was going to just call it the 0:00 club but then I saw people suddenly calling it forza. I like how it sounds, though.
i eagerly posted my cdrive instead of uploading and linking my image.
i immediately saw that when it happened, i had conflicted feeling at the time.
Yeah that's my point genius, anyone new will think Forza = cars, and then there's no way to put it together with the numbers 0000
Maybe you shouldve chosen a name that fucking makes sense you dumbass instead of just picking something that sounds vaguely like it fits
I don't care about forza's number, my point is that it doesn't make any fucking sense
Forza is a racing game but the name team Forza has nothing to do with racing? That's fucking retarded. And knowing the name of a racing game I've never played makes me a motorfag?
Keep making them dank memes son, maybe you can make some more witty wordplays like Loomis + Rover = Ferrari
Does anyone have a better name for forza? Not that's it's not too ingrained to likely change by now. I don't really like the meaning, but I do like how the word sounds, so I don't mind the name.
>I don't care about forza's number, my point is that it doesn't make any fucking sense
Are you dense?
>Forza is a racing game but the name team Forza has nothing to do with racing?
Yes. It has to do with posting your art at 00:00
Again are you dense?
That's fucking retarded. And knowing the name of a racing game I've never played makes me a motorfag?
Knowing that it's associated with 1000 when no-one else knew or cared...Yes you are a motorfag and autistic for being nitpicky on something so banal
>Keep making them dank memes son, maybe you can make some more witty wordplays like Loomis + Rover = Ferrari
That's just... Get the fuck outta here
>mfw the guy is technically banned and everyone's still shitposting
the only connection between forza and the number 1000 is that 2 years ago one of there games has a dlc pack with the number 1000 in the name.
You'd think by the way this guy's been talking about it that the number 1000 to forza is like pixar's A113 or something
I'm such an idiot I just assumed Forza was another competitor like Rover
I should have twigged when I never actually saw a Forza post and people talking about making Loli the leader of team Forza (when I believed a Froza was already leader of that team), shit like this always makes me marvel at the scale of my learning disability, how am I even alive.
Anon313, do you work with reference or just all from your head? Your high collared armour guys make me think of Mass Effect characters a bit, especially Garrus.
I thought it was called Forza too because how they're so fast off the line like race cars, didn't think it was to do with the time or attempted puns.
The studio that makes the game is called Turn 10, could be something to do with that too.
>I thought it was called Forza too because how they're so fast off the line like race cars, didn't think it was to do with the time or attempted puns.
same, I google searched it when I first saw people using the term and just assumed it was a reference to fast race cars, occasionally someone would post "forza = four zeros" but that doesn't make as much sense, if the angle was four zeros then forzo or forze would be more intuitive, 'a' isn't in 'four zeros' at all
I don't live in an area where I need a car. I can walk everywhere I need to go, and if I want to go farther, public transportation can get me there. How does it feel shoveling out your driveway and spending tons of cash on oil and repairs?
>shoveling out your driveway and spending tons of cash on oil and repairs?
you'd clean your driveway even if you didn't have a car, same reason you mow grass even if you don't play on your lawn.
i do repairs myself, i only spent money on maintenance like oil, washers, brakes
insurance is paid by my dad, cause im still in uni
oh and you don't know the thrill of driving on interstate highway blasting Tiesto
and freedom to go anywhere
it's like trying to explain how nice it would be to fly on private airplane to someone who never done so, except almost everyone has a car and you don't, you loser
I hope unlike your replies at least your drawings are in time, faggot
So draw for hours every day like the other NEETs here. Stop playing video games if you play them, or at least severely limit your playing time. Make a schedule for yourself, I recommend doing a study every day and afterwards do something from imagination that uses what you learned from the study to reinforce it. You can definitely git gud within a lifetime with that much free time to allocate to art.
Go outside and take a walk. Seriously, I've never been clinically depressed but when I sink into those more short-lived depressions getting some fresh air and free exploration always livens me up. I guess it depends on what you mean by poor physical health though. If you're just generally unfit it'll do you physical good as well, but if you have an actual condition it may not be feasible. If there's anything that you've noticed tends to inspire you, maybe spend some more time with it. By the way, if you're the generally unfit side of unhealthy, I started eating more healthily recently and I have a lot more energy now. Seriously, eat your veggies. They're great.
I think it's more of a NEET thing. There are a lot of NEETs here because they have so much time to spend here, and the internet is a very common vice. And from my observations, NEETs are usually depressed. It's probably both a cause and an effect. They let their life stagnate because they're depressed, and they get depressed because they're not doing anything.
>I suspect i have to get my shit together before i can do this 'learning" thing properly.
Wrong. Your shit will get together and then just fall apart your entire life. Give up the illusion of controlling that or worrying about fixing things before you can do what you want. Just get to doing what you want and forget about the depression, it's a waste of time.
>forget about the depression, it's a waste of time.
This is actually good advice. Despite people always saying that bottling emotions is bad, whenever I feel bad I just ignore it and push it away and then I feel better. And nothing bad has come of that practice yet.
>It's probably both a cause and an effect.
Can confirm, I always thinking being a NEET sounds great, but whenever I've been unemployed I start to feel so useless that I become depressed and waste all that free time feeling sorry for myself.
Working part time or volunteering once a week will make a NEET generally less wasteful of their time.
I'd say people getting depressed about such things are worrying too much about the stigma of society.
I'm neet myself and I just take it easy and do hobbies and shit while I wait for my chance to come again.
It's all in the mindset
I think you should start focusing less on contour and more on construction. I've only looked at the last 5 entries of your's and there's only been one practice of 3d form.
If it helps, if you can't draw during a period of time, try to see everything around you as cubes or circles or cylinders and break them down or look at them in perspective.
What's the best way of practicing construction? Should I continue my life drawing, but also draw cross-contours lines on objects I observe from life, or break them into simpler cubes/cylinders and/or apply perspective?
Personally, I never really enjoyed doing cross-contours lines and I think simplified volumes is more efficient and easier to visualize. I think cross-contour is better at helping me digest details like indents or textures but shapes are better for mass shapes and perspective. But try both! You never know which helps you more.
You don't even need to do a 'completed' simple shapes drawing. Just do quick sketches of your still life subject as simplified shapes before you go into your contour-line drawings.
I've been posting since week 1, but lately it's really been killing me that my side-projects are suffering; can i submit hand painted textures? Pic related. Would really help me make progress on my vidyagame project
people have asked about 3d modelling, sculpting, etc before and every time people have said no since this is a drawing challenge. i think there was a poll once too
can you really not do the 30 mins? would you not be drawing at all without the LAS?
I draw all day at work. At home, I'd be painting textures without the LAS; now i gotta sacrifice that development time to put in some sketches, which is fine, but it sets my projects back. Just sort of wish i could keep up with my project for the next 3-4 months, is all
hey guys is it ok if i use my 8-bit sprite perler art for my submissions?
Make your own sprites and submit those.
Maybe it's just a hassle to photograph and upload them. I know I've been doing much more digital than traditional lately because it's less cumbersome to upload. Or maybe he erases the drawings after he does them, that's what I did when I doodled in class so I wouldn't burn through my paper supply.
Ponyfag scum, can't wait for the tribunals when you will be lynched.
>people can't tell this is a joke
Some of you guys really are autistic huh
finished coloring my meme commission.
now working on a valentine commission
Why do your colors look so blown out? Should maybe give it a pass in photoshop.
Try calibrate your monitor senpai, I had the same problem a while ago except everything I made looked way too dark. Calibrating takes like 2 mins, use your eyes, and it'll save you a ton of time down the road.
I don't see why not, that still falls under drawing every day.
I've never seen people say 3d sculpting or texturing isn't allowed. It would be stupid to say that, 3d sketching in stuff like zbrush is great for learning anatomy and texturing is no different to any other digital painting.
god this is the last time I stay in the 23:30 club, I got like 3 hours of spare time today to make a submission for the 9th and prepare for forza on the 10th, this stress is making me wanna vomit, never again, I want out
every week there's a new challenge and your submissions automatically enter you into them. you're still part of #4 but now you're also part of #5. next week you'll join #6 too. this lets new people join and for the eliminated to rejoin. get eliminated and you get kicked out of all of them
do you week 2 and later fuckers even read these threads? smdh f4m
say that again when week one finishes months before week two finishes and massively out lasts them, week one faggots are just the first to jump on the bandwagon they are already dropping like flies
god, at least watching channers argue is entertaining. watching a tumlrite try to argue a point is embarrassing
people we really need to stop playing with the thumbnails, lava how many people fell today?
god damn man i also want the tribunal to start.
The report system is on the way tonight. I was going to push it out last night with the tribunal but it's just not ready yet. You'll be able to report submissions, choose a reason from a dropdown menu and enter a comment. I'll use the next week or so to get a good idea of how many reports it should take to get a case into the tribunal and we'll go from there
o-oooooooooo aaaae-a-a-i-a-u- jo-oooooooooooo aae-o-a-a-u-u-a- e-eee-ee-eee aaaae-a-e-i-e-a- jo-ooo-oo-oo-oo eeeeo-a-aaa-aaaaa?
The topic challenges will be daily but they'll be optional so no worries if you don't want to do them every day. I'm hoping they'll be a higher turnover rate than LAS. Once we get the topic system working next up will be the competitions which is what I think you're looking for.
we'll choose a topic at the beginning of each week and you'll have the whole week to work on it. you can submit at the end of the week and then we'll vote for a winner. only the people who quality for the tribunal voting will be able to vote (need to have submitted for at least the last 7 days in a row.) And yeah it'll probably be the best artists winning each week but I bet clever interpretations from mediocre artists will stand a chance against boring beautiful art
dont be a cuck man up and draw more shit then it will be not only shit but a bunch of shit. or you could always quit, less competition for me.
so it means one topic based drawing daily? shame, only the neets will let go of their studies to join the challenges then, have fun and see you in the competitions then.
>mfw neets will be your undoing.
well yeah the winner of the daily topic challenges will probably be a neet but for everyone else it's the site providing an optional topic (which is something people have been begging for)
My plan for the competitions is to say announce the topic for the week on saturday at 00:00 and then have the deadline for submission at 23:59:59 on Friday. What I'd like to do is make the competition's topic also be that friday's daily topic. that way you can participate in everything and never have to submit more than one link
report system's going in tonight and if it's all good then topics should ready 2 days from now. I wanted them out tomorrow but I had to delay the report system a day which pushed everything back
>tfw I've drawn every day for a month now
I didn't think I could do it but I did. But I haven't progressed at all, I guess I wasn't meant to make it. thanks for everything lava, atleast you helped me realize sooner rather than later.
If someone here can shove a pencil up their urethra and draw something then so can you with practice
let's be honest here. in your first day the poses aren't great, the spider doesn't read very well, 2 of the bugs are profile shots and have wrapping lines that don't fit perspective. the only thing that really looks good is the top left bug
your day 20 submission better than the spider but worse than the bug. Those are the only real comparisons you can make. You tried something harder and it didn't turn out great. that's ok
try putting the bugs fighting in an interesting composition, like this
I don't think non-lewds like figure drawings need to be labeled NSFW just because they might be a mannequin box or a gesture drawing with some breasts outlined, this can get really silly fast with all the people grinding fundamentals, I'd prefer 1 NSFW label and only for lewds
>time when a man works his ass off to show woman good time
>woman just enjoys it
>you need to earn a permission to have the honors of pleasing woman
Every woman is literally a queen and men are slaves in this day and age. Just as fucking planned, right?
For right now it's only visible to me. I'm using this week to guage how many reports come in to get an idea of what I should set the threshold at for the tribunal. I'd like to set it up so that if a submission gets enough reports then it automatically goes into the tribunal where everyone can vote on it.
I think the votes need to be weighted depending on the category, either that or some categories will need to be reviewed manually. I'm assuming more people will vote a submission as being low effort than there would people who think someone cheated.
Tomorrow I'll set it up to show a little info box for each report option because I know people will be shitting their pants about the whole low effort vs low skill thing. One more time: being bad isn't a reportable offense. It's ok to bad if you work hard
TIME TO DIE ROVER.. nah i'm kidding. fibinochi first warning bitch nigga.
>30 minute sketches look like someone's 10 minute scribbles
>go to sleep scared
>wake up in a cold sweat
>rush to computer
>"You have received a Low Effort Warning! One more and you'll be Eliminated!"
no..you are fucking perfect, did you submit already? you better hurry.
grab a pen and paper or open photoshop and start drawing without a reference. by the time you're finished you'll know what you suck at. work on improving something that you suck at then try again. repeat forever
You just gotta force it a bit. When you feel like you're just gonna settle for another page of studies, take a minute or five to come up with something creative instead. You can do it
It hasn't happened yet. So far all reports have been for low effort submissions and imo none of them are troll reports. I wouldn't say that every report should result in a warning but every one would be worth voting on
>So far all reports have been for low effort submissions and imo none of them are troll reports.
end of the line low-efforters
Salt highscore with the people reporting the most?
Slippery banana highscore of with the people most reported and still not eliminated?
Hall of fame for shit like people with a single submission, got reported and kicked out?
Person with the most submissions as the last of that day, and one for the most first of the day?
Lava pls all this fun trivia shit is super easy to implement with just straight up sql, I could even write it for you
Any submission not just current. So yes, although going far back is probably pointless because it's not going to amass any significant amount of reports.
Except for rover's dog. Go report it.
I'm hoping the report system will encourage the lazier people to step it up so that nobody gets eliminated. Some of them have been in it for over a month so I'd feel bad if they got the boot but at the same time if they're going to get kicked then they're not really in it
How does one find out they've been reported? I'd like to know if people think I've been low effort or not; I do a decent amount of work but tend to be over ambitious with studies and things look messy or unfinished most of the time. Don't know if that qualifies me as low effort or not.
>exercise is useless without the exactly right type of pen
You should get to a point where your fundies are so solid you can put niggas to shame with a soggy stick. What tool you use literally does not fucking matter. It's all about your understanding. What glove you put the hand into after that to make things look pretty for normies is an arbitrary choice. If you're able to make something decent with one tool and have an absolute reliance on that one medium, I'd say you're a shitty artist.
If you want to get good you should be using a shitty tool, forcing yourself to rely on yourself and not the tool. Hard pixel brush for the digital, cheap shit pencil for traditional. Note this is of course just based on the fact I'm pretty sure you're a beginner. Mastery of a tool is a difficult and important part of becoming an artist - but it's in no way your focus at the point you are now.
Thanks for projecting, but the exercises I'm doing aren't great with an imprecise medium. It's a line accuracy exercise and clarity is important.
You were right about one thing and that's that I'm a shitty artist, but I have some level of understanding.
>You should get to a point where your fundies are so solid you can put niggas to shame with a soggy stick
the fucking dream. kim would whoop all of our asses while being praised at the same time.
>tfw need to draw but it means at least 45 minutes off your now barely 6-hour sleep and you need to be in shape tomorrow
You're killing me lava.
