Have any of you robots ever made anything?
You don't have to necessarily be proud of it, just proud you tried once.
Here are two things I've made a comic page (failed the course)
and a song (can't afford recording equiptment)
I would like us all to appreciate our creations for what they are.
Be mean, be critical, be nice, be whatever.
Let's just talk about how great those rare times we created felt.
I made an improvised, satirical, incredibly shitty and poorly recorded album that is supposed to make fun of normies but might just be the biggest embarrassment possible for my future self
Thanks OP, would love some feedback
I really like your comic by the way, I appreciate DIY stuff and think your art is pretty cool.
I also really like your new song, listened to some of your older stuff and it is good too. Will follow you on my real band's soundcloud (though we haven't released any of our actual music yet)
this is my stuff...pretty gay and retarded...but its original
gay and retarded
defiantly gay and retarded...your trying to hard. Stop making music.
gay and retarded
I tried drawing some girls on soc...
I took pictures of water drops one time and added dumb messages.
>vocals panned all the way to the right
>guitar panned all the way to the left
Regardless of that, people like you don't get it at all. You're just regurgitating musical ideas that have turned into tropes without actually manipulating them into something new
I told you it was recorded poorly. We slapped it together in like 45 minutes man. Also I'm not trying to do anything remotely new, I'm trying to have a laugh at the expense of others
I'm working on my first album, this is one of the songs i'm going to put on it
I've never released any of my music
I made like 2 shitty portal mods back in highschool that anyone can still download from mod DB, I'd rather not name them though because they were pretty bad.
I also made a few mappacks for HL2 back in the day and am currently helping with a somewhat popular HL2 mod right now.
Other than that, you can find some of my old Sven Co-op and Obsidian Conflict maps floating around somewhere on the internet...
Fuck that noise.
Post stuff you made good or bad.
That goes for everyone. We can laugh at how bad it is together.
Because even if it's shitty, it's a kind of shitty that none else can make.
Prototype album/poster art for punk band. I can't really draw, sorry
Thanks anon, that means a lot. I tried redrawing it in a sketchbook I bought at Kroger but it didn't turn out as well. Something about the rawness of that original sketch I can't recapture. I wish I had drawn it on printer paper instead of notebook.
my band's name is subhuman filth and we haven't released any material or had a show and we will be breaking up at the end of the semester but i would really like to actually do something before that happens
Whether your band breaks up or doesn't, whether you keep redrawing that sketch or get even more enthusiastic about another idea.
Don't stop making stuff. Good ideas are always appreciated.
trying to learn how to paint
it's not great, but I am improving I think
I tried to make music for a bit, but it never turned out too well
all we can do is try i guess
Crappy song from a fun band I was in.
I got a guitar 3 days ago, been trying to learn how to play some of my favorite vidya music.
Just made this for you guys:
Beginning riff of the Silent Hill 2 song- Promise (Reprise).
Unfinished test head for a character I am making for an indie game, supposed to be a Plastic construction worker. going to pull an all nigther to see if i can finish him in one day. I've never been able to do both the head of a character and the body of a character in one go. So I'm trying to challenge myself
Nice dude. We're the same age and I've been doing it for about a year now but I have to admit I would only use it for background art, I like 2D too much.
what do you like about modelling?
sweet, how confident are you in your skills so far? do you make characters yet or anything? The first year for me was absolutely brutal.
I like how I can envision something In my head and then make it into a reality. I'm also getting in to animation and rigging via SFM, so I will eventually be able to take these characters I make and make them move around and emote and stuff. It's like bringing something to life.
Screenshot included. It's a caption I made from Oldboy.
video is a recording of every gif i'd ever saved up to that point in time.
I don't really know why I made it. I guess at the time I had this autist level of faux creativity thinking it had some subliminal story to tell.
post a page or plot overview.
that's a great idea.
I'm more storyboarding at this point, I have a few ideas for shows that I plan to make.
One is this Detective series except everyone has fruit or vegetable heads and it's all about the rampant crime in new york in the 70;s-80's
A show, it will be kind of like True detective and will all be played straight, the comedy will come from wordplay and the world it's set in.
I have an idea for a serial killer that tapes/collects his victims screams.
I do art, mostly drawing, etching, painting. I do a lot of retrofuture/alien/space stuff.
I'm in two hardcore/grind bands but I'm terrible at writing songs.
It was then made into this by the /out/ patch guy.
well, i drew this stalker pepe ...
the only thing i made that gets passed around is this thing, i only made the frame with the letters and all and another anon inserted the images
I'm on my 599th comic
I thought robots needed a comic voice in 2010 when I started writing it, it hasn't been a famous comic, but John Campbell linked to it in his famous PFSC kickstarter (update 1)
I'm proud of it, even if it'll never get big, I'll always keep making it
click "this comic" at the bottom of the page, I was in contact with him for a couple years before he deleted the site and went radio silent
The strange thing is the first think I said to him was, "what's your favorite fruit" and he wrote something back to me implying that I asked him that because I was confused about my gender identity, which in the end turned out he was actually trans.
That's a very insincere way to go about making things. Even if they aren't very good I still made it and I can own up to that.
You're looking at it the wrong way man.
This person sat down and drew something they thought was funny, not surface funny, but that really weird kind of funny that we all keep buried deep inside.
I think that's a beautiful thing regardless of the result.
I once tried to make a weekly comic about 4chan interacting with other websites a few months back. I only made 2 steam friends from it. I fell into drug abuse though so I wasn't able to continue it. Also one of the steam friends stopped responding so I got depressed and stopped logging in.
This is not a bad idea but maybe it would go better if your execution was subtle.
Like you base the characters and interactions on different websites, but you let the audience figure out who is who.
Hey I'm not saying you're wrong, if you think it's bad then it's always just going to be bad to you.
I was just saying the I can personally relate to this on some level which gives me joy.
What gives you joy?
well -_- i wouldnt consider my content as per created by a "robot" necessarily, yet nor would i neccessarily desire for it be "associated" with this subforum of 4c; however -_-
well... -_- its hard to pass up a chance to plug my "content"; regardless: enjoy :2
Posting this in confidence. I tried making a youtube channel with some content to help me feel better about myself.
I was a little depressed and I felt better when I could stay up till 3 to 4 in the morning talking about stories, feelings, or whatever I felt like talking about and I'd upload them like a blog or a diary for people to take in as well. This is one of my favorite videos because people had actually told me that they could connect in some way.
I am still making videos and I have several things written down, but serting aside time to record them is something I am purposely putting off for some reason.
I actually met a content creator at a convention recently and I really look up to him. I said I was trying to get my channel going and he says to just tweet something at him and I have been wanting to make something just for the even of tweeting him.
Not gonna stop anytime soon, but I gotta pick it back up.
fucking idiot my stepdad lives with my mom i'm not some fucking loser neet that still need's their support to live i have my own apartment and job and pay taxes and everything
never reply to me again
Pretty nice panels, OP. I mean the content looks like annoying hipster garbage but it's pretty well drawn and well placed on the page.
I paint sometimes. Acrylic on canvas, mostly abstract forms focusing on color.
I also write erotica.
I write things. Short stories, CYOA's, poetry (or I did), etc. They're all together the biggest point of discontent in my life because while I don't give a fuck about your or anyone else's opinion my own is rather important to me and everything I do I see as flawed.
No, I post anything. I'm mad enough about them already. I've been extremely upset about them for the last however many hours and it's keeping me awake because I can't drown the thoughts of them.
don't tell me what to do, faggot. i'll have you know i worked on the STAR WARS prequels
and he makes a star wars reference -_-
regardless; im snipping this thread of conversation. do not respond following this as i am uninteresting in collobarating on uninteresting dialogue -_-
by all means; continue your circlejoke -_-
>"do not respond following this"
>telling me what to do
I did for a little bit, I did this last year mostly, I went to an arts high school for 2 years, then went to a regular high school for 1 and I'm in my senior year now. I quit because I lost my drive, I'm actually a pencil artist mostly, figure drawing. I may eventually post some of my work here on /r9k/. Another time.
I'm trying to learn how to draw, but I'm not really trying I guess. I just scribble shit with a reference while I watch netflix.
The others I glazed and sold, the pot was celadon, I changed the trim of it a bit too. I wish I had photos of the tea pots I made as well. My teachers pushed me too hard to go into more shows and I eventually just quit.
Try doing still lifes. It helps you grasp the concept of shading and making objects seem less flat, anon. Real objects you use for reference are better. Take it from me, I used to be a figure artist. You have potential.
That sucks. The thing is, you should make and sell ceramics. That's good thing to make your living on until you can get a foot in the door for illustrating or whatever you want to do with your pencil art
Pretty interesting thread. I make a good amount of stuff myself seeing as I'm working on something in Unity3d... Have to do the art, 3d models, music, programming, all but the sound FX that can be obtained for free online. Also have made some wearable stuff(ring + 2 pendants) I made in a metals course once...
I had a spark, and then it burned out, I just have no passion when it comes to art. My depression made me create interesting pieces, but it only took me so far. I quit, due to the fact that I just couldn't do it anymore. Also, everyone at my school was a leftie weeb trans-whatever.
Alright bud. Have fun with your shit posting, I guess my 3 years of art school were just me talking out of my ass, and my selling pieces was me not having a clue about sketching at all.
>Also, everyone at my school was a leftie weeb trans-whatever.
a family member offered to let me live with them and go to an art school in Austin Texas, i would rather kill myself
i hear there's a school in Russia teaching traditional art now, trying to preserve it
"art school"; yes that is almost definitive proof that you have no idea what youre talking about.
if you have to go to a place for them to tell you arbitrarily: "yes, now you know "art"" then chances are you have learned nothing, absolutely.
Once I did a skin for Bard.
Although I thought it ain't bad I recieved no feedback good or bad.
I was quite depressed about it, after so many hours spent on that.
My first commissioned work was a mural for my Junior High. If you do not even know how to use the term 'value', or that volume and line weight is far more important for depicting depth in fucking line work than 'shading', then you just need to quietly melt back into the anonymous void.
Just be thankful there are no persistent ID's on 4chan. Consider this a practice run for yourself.
Look into the Arts and Communication Magnet Academy, a Magnet Charter school with the best art programs and funding from the state of Oregon. I went there. They have a lottery to enter, I did not make it on the lottery, so I had to apply based on merit. I got in.
I am 67 years old and personally studied under the tutelage of Picasso.
He tried to stick his finger up my butt once but I told him I wasn't into that sort of thing so he backed off but kept teaching me, that's how much respect he had for me as an artist.
Just because I don't go in depth with terminology when speaking to someone who's just beginning drawing from references, I don't think implying I know nothing about art. I don't want to fight, but you made an assumption.
Not for someone just drawing on a tablet on a computer for fun. Please, again, I don't want to argue with you. All I'm saying is you made an assumption, an incorrect one. It's all good, we all make mistakes.
I am the guy that claimed three years of art school. You made an assumption, again, that just because I used more simplistic terminology that a novice would understand, that I don't know what I'm talking about. Here's the magnet high school I went to.
It's something that's still in progress. I'm only like 10% done with this game.
Here's another old-ass gif of my project.
youre assuming that your claim of going to an "art school" is worth anything - even if it was true.
the only validity that you could unseathe as an artist would be from your created works... yet for some reason you some... unwilling to post them; interesting perhaps?
Draw a few minutes a day everyday. That's about it.
You won't see progress day to day, but you will when you look back on the work you did the previous month. Before I worked on this project I honestly only did pixel art. I've been working on this since about September and I'm already seeing good progress.
Damn dude, you are/were right down the road from me.
Dang man those are some crazy animations, must take forever to draw those things. I personally decided to switch to 3D as moving around a doll is far easier than drawing that kind of stuff.
Yes, exactly. Keep rereading my post until you realize I was insulting you with a great deal of foresight.
You are asking me fly across the country, break into my junior high school, take a picture of a mural that I doubt even still exists, and post it here so you can judge a painting I made almost 2 decades ago? When I have been post-form for almost half a decade now?
Is this how you choose to deflect from the blatant shortcomings in your own post, by attacking my own credibility when your posts are so demonstrably wrong?
ceremics are "arts and crafts"; they are not of the same technical skill level as drawing/painting.
thats not to say the ceremics dont look good... but they are hardly interesting in an artistic sense, maybe bury them for a few thousand years.
regardless -_- lets see something with some depth: "a painting/drawing" so as to accurately gauge your artistic knowledge.
Hard to read sarcasm in text format, I posted my recent work so you can post yours now, you are a professional, correct? Critique my lingo more while you're at it, let's hear you give advice to a new artist who draws in his free time that won't know what you're talking about too.
you doubt the mural exists yet? ... surely if it is a high quality mural they would not paint over it so easily... -_-
regardless; no i am not asking for a picture of the mural if you do not have it - any sort of "drawing" xor "painting" will sufficiently suffice. :2
here: i will post my work as well and we can let the masses compare who has ... merit...
the "college educated" or the "self-learned"
>ceramics aren't art
Holy shit this is a joke right? Also, if you would have read my post I'm not at liberty to post these photos of my work, as I'm on a phone at a friends house.
You play as a black hand and your goal is to trigger the events of WW1 and create a unified Europe.
And there's not much to play yet since I'm still coding all the components and haven't yet begun level design.
>ceramics aren't art
Pic very much related. You just annihilated your entire argument over my being an artist or not over some basic terminology I used with a beginner.
surely not all of your work pertains to "work"? you do not have any sort of rough hobbyist sketch that you could post -_-?
doubtful - or rather: that doesnt sound like any artist i have ever dialogued with.
regardless; no it is not a joke. ceremics are ... like "blacksmithing"... while not enherently devoid of creativity or technical skill... you can hardly argue it is on the same tier as "painting/drawing" as far as artistic expression is concerned.
especially when we're talking about regular bowls/cups. push the medium and perhaps you can call "your" ceremics anything other than a mere "arts-and-crafts" project.... an ironic name; as it is composed of neither. -_-
The only things I make that an idiot like you could understand are done with a sharpie in my warm up, unless you want me to dig around in my archives for something to gloat about which I tell you now I will not do.
Will you settle for this, to be belittled by monochrome sketches? Is it so important that you justify your poor education, your ignorance, and your shame, with my own superiority? I imagine if you judge my drawings as bad you will merely dismiss my criticism as incorrect and when you see how much better I am than you you will again excuse yourself, but only on the grounds that I am so much better than you. Either way I'm not seeing how my own ego benefits from this effort. I will post something when you convince me it's worth stooping to your level.
I doubt the school still exists. It still had asbestos in the ceilings when I graduated.
is that your bowl? -_- how ironic that you still have not gained the perspective to realize how foolish you are.
perhaps i should realign my stance as it may not have been clear initially: the pottery that you posted/created.... is not art, it does not push the medium, it merely a bowl.
dont get me wrong -_- there is something valueable about crafting a bowl such as that; but necessity and craftsmanship do not an artistic make -_-
it lacks a certain artistic pretension -_- regardless; the ceremic that you attempted to prove the point with in the post im currently replying to?
sure, perhaps you could argue that is art.... uninteresting art... but art none the less -_- yet do you not see the irony in you continueing to resort to other people to justify yourself as an artist?
you drone on about your "college education" and even go as far as to post someone elses "art" as if to justify your medium... rather than posting something you yourself ... created. -_-
regardless, swim in your delusions until they run over into a vast sea - it does not affect me regardless.... i will be creating art myself :2 sans the "college".
i have never once attended any sort of "college" nor "school" much less an "art school" xor an "art college' -_- for i believe the obfustrufaction of knowledge behind a paygate is fundamentally evil -_- regardless; im not here to discuss my concept for a fos education standard.
i am merely replying to tell you -_- that you were misinformed :2
oh? thank you for the feedback :2
thank you for the feedback :2
i also -_- create animations on youtube; feel free to enjoy them.
If you would've read my post, no, I'm not able to do so, as I'm at a friends house. Implying you're any better would mean you would post your work from, what, 20 years ago in middle school? Holy shit you're pathetic. Calling me an idiot for not being able to understand your poor writing or path of logic is stupid. Calling yourself an artist on here when you won't post your own work, and shit on others when they don't, it's the saddest attempt at trolling I've ever seen. I'm a high school student in ceramics, I wouldn't call myself a professional, but I'd definitely say I'm better than you.
Your argument is based off of a statement I made to a beginning artist, not a peer. Assuming I'm uneducated in the arts when I've had more training than your pathetic middle school community mural project is literally retarded.
But please, continue to shitpost, in fact, I doubt you'll read this or address anything in it and actually listen to what I say, because you're just that ignorant.
it doesnt need to, as its a drawing/painting.
if you reread the post prior, youll see that i was saying that ceremics needed to push the boundaries of their own medium to be recognized as art - otherwise its merely industry. :2
>>26197391 noice poem
>you drone on about your "college education" and even go as far as to post someone elses "art" as if to justify your medium... rather than posting something you yourself ... created
Made this a couple of months ago. I just drew over the Islam vs Europe bait pic.
I never called myself an artist and never would. I wish I were so daring, at best I am a mere painter but at least I understand the basics of form, value, and composition. Apparently, by your own admission, you are barely even able to read English.
The fact that you made such a ridiculous statement to a novice, that somehow 'shading' would improve the sense of depth his line work, that you called it 'shading' instead of value, and then doubled down on it instead of just admitting your mistake, makes it more than obvious how little you know about drawing regardless of what my credentials might be.
I cannot figure out why you care so much. Just fade away, we're all anonymous here. Sure you were caught in a lie but that lie is ephemeral. No one will know.
Stopped reading at deviant art
Nice pic, did you draw it? If you did kill yourself, you lack the skill and patience to truly understand the difficulty of sending a message through ceramic art.
Please tell me how it's ironic. Tell me how I'm foolish. I'm not trying to push the medium, I'm merely a student learning technique, tell me, has your community mural pushed the medium? I did not drone out college education, I said high school education.
How is any of what I've said ironic, it's not ironic. YOU DONT KNOW WHAT IRONY MEANS HOLY SHIT KEK EDGELORD.
Is this bait? I'm seriously starting to wonder. I never claimed to push boundaries.
Anon, please understand, not all art has a message. Some art is for practice of technique, some art is just for the sake of creating something beautiful.
Edgelords like you wouldn't understand that.
Please, stop contacting me. I'm done, you've proven my point well enough.
Also, stop posting "-_-" every line, it makes you look more autistic than you already are.
well -_- you know what they say: a "picture is worth a thousand words"...
well... -_- let me do the math hm ... yes you have crossed that thresshold; let us judge your merit based on your words as you have begged us to throughout this dialogue.
... well? you desired the judgement: perhaps youre curious as to whether or not i will dub you an artist of the round?
but... you failed to pull the sword of due evidence from the rock of my heart -_- i cannot in good conscience label you thusly an "artist".
regardless: you have proven yourself to be many other things in stead of that... although ill leave it to your own deduction as to what those things may be -_-?
don't mistake craft for art
craft is nice and comfortably aesthetic, art is necessarily boundary pushing and even offensive to plebs. it's not about message, it's not about beauty
it's like the difference between science and engineering
You said something completely incorrect in an attempt to offer advice and then you lied to cover up your embarrassment when someone that knew what the fuck was up saw how stupid you are.
If you just stopped talking and disappeared into the anonymous ether, that would be for the best.
I've always wanted to be an animator.
After many years of playing with stop-motion and trying to git gud at drawing I just kinda gave up and never tried again.
"a message through ceramic art"
"you can drink from me"
what a profound statement? -_- regardless of my community mural and whether or not i believe it still exists yet in any such form you cannot deny that my masterful conversational form has muddled the actors lines in this play? -_-
i will conclude my points thusly: there is a reason pottery is found throughout the historical landscape: it is disposable, even in its most "thematic" form it is still not worth the effort for those that flee to flee with it.... and so it is covered by the ash of the earth. if all that is required to create art is to run your hands along a material and inject it into a heat producing source?
perhaps i will go dip my hands in a plastic tub of water and thusly microwave it? -_- or maybe i can borrow one of you bowls? -_- im making water pottery :2
What was the course and how did you fail it? Just curious because I do comics sometimes for fun myself, and this at least is more aesthetically pleasing than the webcomic threads on /co/
I'm not sure why you keep saying it was a community mural. Are you maybe projecting something from your own insecurities?
And these are somehow not normal circumstances? What is abnormal about this, or more normal in your other interactions? Who, exactly, would you consider a peer?
Just how large is your over inflated ego?
>>still trying this hard to bait
>still being retarded
I like to draw. I've improved since this too, even though it was only a few months ago, I'm always getting better.
Been doing a bit of drawing lately.
Had pretty mixed feedback about it, but I'll keep going with it.
I just made a postal dude hijak for a guy in another thread
pls save it I am proud of it
You have a cute voice.
I make music on piano and some beats on juicy fruit to pass the time, I'd rather not post soundcloud so here's my best two imo.
I drew a few wojaks and pepes that get reposted every now and then.
I probably won't have children, no one will turn up to my funeral, not that I will have one I'll probably jump off a cliff out back somewhere when I'm too old, and there's little chance I'll do anything that will be remembered/I won't be remembered.
but my memes have propagated and even been used to create edits and those digital bits of data will last some time. All across the world, random strangers have seen it and decided to save the picture and even use it again, which is nice.
I draw random comics. It's more soothing than shitposting
I wrote a play about a version of the french revolution that broke out because the king has phimosis. I read it to some of my friends and they found it really funny.
It's a shame I never finished the final chapter.
every time i post my taxidermy you guys call me weird and creepy :-/
I made this pepe and hid a bunch of clues and encrypted files in it. Nobody has solved them all, that I know of.
I paint sometimes
what do you think robots?
nearly died talking to this lass
I make things all the time. Not art, but electronic/mechanical things.
Most recently I made a new control unit for our broken heat, a video switcher for the TV, and a couple of parts for an old typewriter I'm trying to fix up.
It's the only thing that keeps me going.
>wrote a p complex piano song when I was 5
>in 4th grade, I wrote a series of comics about this duck. Dad saw them and burnt them then beat me
>knocked up some fembot, so some lil autist running around, idk where
a few of the pepes i made have been widely circulated by normies outside of /r9k/
here is a rare
Did similar. Depressing this is the only thing I could think of.
You could always pick it back up, anon. Your gif shows some understanding of it at least, and it's enjoyable to watch. Drawing is obviously very important, but nowadays we have so many different ways to approach animation that if you find your medium, be creative with it and patient, I'm sure you can find success even if it only becomes a freelance thing.
idk man, the first song's not the best
i know i can't sing
I made some T rex Pepes I forgot about
and here is what happens when our two young heroes meet
"Your move, normie"
"Come quietly or there will be... REEEEEEEEEEEEEEE"
"Roastie or toastie, you're coming with me"
Imagine how awesome sex would be as a trex. You have little arms so can't fap, you're a hyper aggressive killer probably with a giant dick. Every day of no gf drives you insane so you kill to quell the feels.Then one day a sexy female trex bends over for you and you guide your giant rex dick into her tight pussy. It's probably better then any human sex.
I like how the lips turned out. Can never finish anything
I'm a lone game developer and i have a game on steam
i'd rather not share it and be known as that dev on r9k
im currently trying to work on something new but depression is really crippling production.
I really loathe how everything in this thread is being praised regardless of it's quality. How is somebody meant to get assurance of their work when you're all so insincere? This is why I hate normalfags. You value feels over constructive criticism and truth.
I have to link to my writing because 4chan is shit and keeps saying I have ASCII text even when I don't.
>yfw normalfags are garbage truly because they value "criticism" too much
>yfw all they want is to be seen as the best
>yfw robots just want to be loved
you're a fucking idiot anon
also my art was quality shit so fuck you
You're not a robot you fucking idiot. Normalfags want a pat on the back and to be told everything is alright. It's not about a desire to be better than others, it's about sincerity. Normalfags are criminally insincere and you can never trust a word that comes out of there mouths. I don't want to be loved, nor do I love anyone -- my life is awful and your art is fucking shit. Kill yourself.
A lot of people in this thread have actual potential and deserve to get support for it. If you need professional critique go to a specialised forum and stop being so buttmad when people get positive feedback for their effort.
>, it's about sincerity.
>implying you can tell me what I sincerely enjoy or not
just cause someone's drawing is disproportionate doesn't mean the art is bad. i like naive art and this whole thread is fucking full of beautiful outsider art type stuff. I sincerely think it's good.
>my life is awful and your art is fucking shit. Kill yourself.
working on it
An UV lamp for circuit board photo process for etching. The aluminium foil part is just two parabolas to reflect the light.
I write a lot of music mostly sad shit. I actually have a professional recording coming out really soon but this is all shit I recorded off my phone
Well, you like things that are objectively bad and you have awful taste then. These people won't grow as an artist because they're surrounded by people who just tell them what they want to hear. I don't believe for a second you believe shit like
that is in anyway worthy of praise or showing some innate talent or great unspent potential. You're a smarmy, moralising piece of shit and I fucking hate you. I just want you to know that.
A prototype to test a small scale wind turbine powering a motor from hard disk drive.
Unsuccessful because the gears and the rubber belt had too much friction the whole thing was just hard to turn, and I geared it up to get to at least some RPM for the HDD motor to get some voltage that can get through the Schottky diode rectifier.
So it was a waste of time gluing together the turbine from literal garbage and putting it all together.
>you like things that are objectively bad and you have awful taste then.
that's probably actually true
>I don't believe for a second you believe shit like that is in anyway worthy of praise or showing some innate talent or great unspent potential
I don't, but I also don't think art is about "talent" or "potential"
>You're a smarmy,
i love that word
>moralising piece of shit
I think so yeah, I'm sorry
>and I fucking hate you.
I'm sorry you hate me
You need to practice more. You lack the technical skill or patience to produce detailed work. Your faces are particularly bad. Your boy in >>26205092 has no detail in his legs. All one solid colour. It's amateur, is what I'm saying. It's what I'd expect any secondary school art student to produce. The only criticism I can give is practice, practice, practice and stop being lazy. Look at the faces beyond the woman in your watercolour. There's nothing to them. Look at the lines of the tiled roof, they're squiggly and rushed as hell. You couldn't even be bothered finishing it. The woman herself is okay, but again it wouldn't be deserving of praise outside of a secondary school. The fact that you consider that "quality shit" betrays that you've spent your life around the exact kind of people I was complaining about in the first place. You've chosen to immerse yourself in insincerity because to you it is more important than reality.
I've nothing else to say here, you pretty much agreed with me. I'm glad you realise you're a dunce anon -- I really don't have the energy to further explain it to you.
i responded to stuff but the post went away when I went to pick a photo cause my phone has very little ram
but the squiggly and unfinished faces were on purpose and part of the composition, so I guess your qualms are a taste thing. but the boy is definitely unfinished looking.
thanks for spending the energy you did have on talking with me
this is an abstract piece i sold for 250. I guess it might not mean anything to you because the buyer was an artist too, maybe that changed what it means to buy art. I was pacient with this one, worked fast and slow and over about a month.
I was working on a murder mystery comic with the entire cast filled by different drawfags from an ongoing series of threads here on /r9k/. I had almost the whole plot worked out, but the threads fizzled out and I felt like the fanfiction-tier concept wasn't worth it if the people who it was based around weren't even there to see the finished product. I wound up doing like three pages and dropped it completely.
It makes me so fucking sad to look back on my drawings, I barely got started/had almost no experience but I had so much fun with them.
Pic related, part of a teaser I made for the comic.
she offered to buy it the second she saw it. I told her that's too much. an art teacher at the school said I was underselling. but OK.
they're both into naive and outsider art too so maybe we all just have shit taste.
>mfw no replies
this is how I imagine normies feel when they only get 20 likes on their facebook pic
shitty cake, other stuff im not posting fuck you anybody can do any of this its so easy.
>try not to be an arts fag
>try not to be a goddamn arts fag
>end up being an arts fag by technicality
Abstract art is overvalued because it's a covert means of money laundering, the cultural impact of this being that abstract art in general is overvalued regardless of it's prestige. That having been said, I feel art in general is overvalued. All the competent pieces sell for thousands (millions if it's from someone well known) and the okay -- but desperately in need of improvement -- pieces can usually snag a couple of hundred.
They look delicious anon.
I wasn't trying to attention whore, I just feel it's kind of sad that even in a thread like this some people just get completely ignored.
Not that I responded to everything, but I at least tried to look at all that I can judge.
it was super cheesy, I'm a big lover of puns/wordplay/cliches/tropes. (pic related, a doodle of my favorite cartoon character.) since the subject of the comic was so serious I really wanted to go for dark humor, or flat-out comedy, so that the serious/taboo subject matter wouldn't carry so much weight or drag the reader down. not only that but the characters (all the drawfags) all had a great and similar sense of black humor so it only seemed fitting to make it seem as if everyone was making fun of themselves.
which post is yours?
art is such bullshit yet so simple. The way I look at is its what is it worth to you?
To me my art is worth how much it costs to fucking make it and how much you are going to give me for a practice run so the next person will have a slightly better product. I don't think there will ever be a time where it won't be a practice for the next person.
I made this after the school shooting, and wrote a post aping the original shooter's post.
"Some og you 'umies are OK, don't go to schola if yous on terra" or something.
But everyone ignored it.
>I feel art in general is overvalued
I agree with that. but I've only sold a few pieces anyways so I don't really understand buying/purchasing art. all the art I have is either stuff I made or gifted to me. I wonder about other stuff though, I know I bought my computer desk cause it was the prettiest one that still served the functions I wanted. and that's an aesthetic/artistic choice I think. I wonder if I'm buying or creating art. maybe both. I think it's always both, even with real art
>I don't think there will ever be a time where it won't be a practice for the next person.
I like that anon. I think so too
I wasn't trying to make it seem like you were, I just wanna know what you posted
... do you ever feel strange just doing that on your own? I used to be into going for walks along the local river and stacking rocks but with my social isolation I just kinda stopped and now I can't even imagine myself doing it anymore.
You have to actively look to find people in the inland northwest, it's either wilderness and mountains, desert, or farmland with tiny pockets of people between. Pretty cozy but there's not much to do.
Ah, that makes it different I guess. I live in a town in Switzerland. There's a small river with rocks around it but it's not far out so there are usually or kids (with parents) or people walking their dogs, makes me feel kind of uncomfortable and out of place.
I'd been meaning to get into drawing for a little bit now and this thread encouraged me. I drew a manlet. I think I did alright given I didn't use any references or whatever, even though it's a lot worse than the stuff the actual artists ITT are making.
I try to write short stories, but I can't motivate myself to write everyday. I'm also scared of showing my "art" to other people.
How do you do that, artists? What makes you not fear the critique and shit? I want to know the secret.
Here's another MS paint drawing I made. The ideal outfit for a girl
No problem. I think a big part of the reason people are terrified of criticism is because they derive their self worth externally, rather than considering their inherent value as a human being.
one of many, will dump more of my shitty art if you cucks want me to
the whole point of these stones is simplicity/balance, which you dun fucked up by trying too hard..
A for effort though. read zen and repeat.
really good. consistent feel and style. do one per day, make a tumblr/instagram, get followers, get groupies, fuck groupies, move in with groupies, leave r9k. in that order.
This is like my second woodburning attempt. Then the log split with a giant crack of course, right when I finished. I did another one but it was worse looking. I have another piece identical but it has a tiny, similar crack in it. I'm thinking of a way I could incorporate a crack into a burning design, maybe as the trunk of a tree or some shit? It's harder than it looks
I made all of these. Not literally, I didn't hand-draw the pixel art, but I made up all of the profiles and edited the weird ones in paint and used to make threads with them all the time.
You really need to work on your vocal timbre. And it takes a while to figure out how to make melodies, it's the hardest part about music imo. Basically your singing isn't on key with the music and they sound like two seperate songs.
I've been working on a melody and riff
I am making lyrics up on the spot because I haven't decided on finalizing anything and lyrics are the least important part of music imo
Another version :)
(quality is fairly poor because I had to compress it massive to post)
I made this when someone posted a pic of that guy and asked "what's his name?"
sure.. but what makes a piece of art "good" is when all aspects are pointed toward the same mood/feel/theme. by cluttering the original idea, you've put in contradictory elements..
Made this when he was still posted all the time
One time I made these cookies
I don't do a lot of cool stuff
I make notes. I sometimes draw them.
I used to make my own porn using Garry's Mod... I got over
250of these. I might make more some time.
Med student, don't have the patience for any more pure academics.
I was the kind of person that meticulously took extensive and commented but rather unsightly notes, only to have people who like to make their notes nice and pretty rather than practical ask me for mine later.
But separating it from the person (I assume you to be), it actually looks surprisingly nice desu

Thanks senpai, I put the meat of the details on a typed format or Anki, and leave high concepts and certain anatomical stuff for handwriting.
I create all of the time. I write lots of music. I'm currently writing a score for a short film. Mostly guitars, pianos, things like that.
Here's what happens when my room mate and I fuck around on ableton. He comes up with the song I remix, I remix it. I also make memes.
I wrote a story for an assignment, though I never finished it. I involves violence towards women, so I think you guys might enjoy it.
I wish I could play keys. I want to start a funk band like Jamiroquai but no one my age is into it and I'm not good enough at keys or bass to make it alone in pro tools.
Whatever, my buddy is going to play guitar with me so I'll play acoustic guitar and sing with him so that people can hear my voice around town. I'm >>26206801
Post some piano or guitar music. I have no frame of reference with edm that isn't electrohouse.
The guitar and piano stuff is done in a recording studio, and it isn't EDM or anything like that. It's usually for short films or for just stuff I play alone, sometimes.
None of the guitar stuff is on my laptop (which is all I have for the time being) so I can't share it.
I take some pride in this because sometimes i see it posted on /wg/
feels good to know that people like my stuff
same goes for this one,
i made both of these
also i recently started to draw
im still far from anything close to good
This was the only thing I ever drew I was somewhat proud of. I wish I could get back into drawing.
just buy a little sketchbook for like 5 dollars and a pencil, and keep it on you at any times, just draw whenever you feel like, dont let any idea you have go to waste, i velieve in you, anon
The news said that normie teens were getting hit by trains while taking selfies on the tracks, so I made this.
There's something beautiful about that. Two teenagers taking a soppy romantic picture only for the train to rocket along and smear them along the ground. Imagine dying in your teens as the punchline of a joke you weren't privy too. Schaudenfrade, robots. Schadenfraude.
I love origami, especially Star Wars origami
here's a tiny x-wing I made
I play the piano, not much original compositions because I can't compose for shit, but covers. I'll just post my youtube channel, but please ignore the other stuff that I uploaded. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmKr1eYwjXnDPBMgFgI7-XA
yeah, my webcam fucking sucks. you can see from this millennium falcon I made that all of the detail is lost to the shitty fucking camera.
pretty impressive that you made such a small model. they say that making smaller and smaller models is the best way to improve your folding ability.
Well, I noticed that it's very easy to fuck up small models if your folds aren't perfect.
If you fold something newspaper-sized, it really doesn't matter if your work is sloppy.
Anyway, good work, origami can be a lot of fun.
Too bad I was always teased for it in school.
I make games occasionally.
This is a roguelike I finished, I'm currently working on a mini metroidvania platformer.

forgot the drawing
I wrote this song for a girl I met because she had a beautiful singing voice, and I never played it for her. So you guys will be my one and only audience
I also took this picture a very long time ago, you guys can have it now
I draw from life and I also draw cartoons, but I'm too insecure to post anything
I used to be open about it to get attention but ever since I started taking it seriously and got crushed when I got rejected from the art school of my dreams, I realized how stupid I was to think other people wanted to see my art so now I just draw and improve for myself.
Fuck dreams. You just end up settling for something less and become very depressed and unfulfilled.
I made a vaporwave album. Nothing special or great, I was just playing around. Turned out better than I thought though and has been well recieved.
