Wanted to prove that the anime style was easy and the japanese are retarded insects. I still hate anime style and never tried to draw like them
I remember when I was a teen.. good times..
Teens (and trannies) are the people that likes that shit. I was just tired of seeing the same anime faces everywhere
Didn’t want to do anything else
It's either grinding this everyday or grinding world of warcraft everyday, using drawing to kick the shitty WoW habit, at least this hobby has the potential to go somewhere unlike WoW

I hate niggers
Idk. probably just focus on drawing really good in classical styles. niggers hate it since they cant make it themselves, and jews hate it because it promotes beauty.

basically any european art styles from the renaissance to 1900 is good.

Whats the right way to find the right colors for your drawing without overdoing it? Also in most cases the white parts in drawings is never actually white but grey or something but because of the surrounding colors it appears white, how can you judge something like that and choose the right shading and grey color?

I remember listening to coast2coast radio like 5 or 6 years ago when driving back to my parents from my factory job. I pulled overtime so I ended up leaving at 3 am and my parents lived waaaay Innawoods.

Anyway I'm cruising down this dirt road and pick up a radio signal for what I learned was coast2coast radio. This guy was going off about how he's a low ranking officer in the US navy and he's seen hundreds of trucks and thousands of soldiers moving supplies into a mountain facility in Nevada.

He kept going off about he's heard mumurings of a coup about to take place and the US army is the only loyalist group of the armed forces. Went into a ton of detail that I can't recall but short of name dropping he went off for like 20 minutes before dropping the super schizo stuff.

He claimed the coup was going to take place because the US Navy, Marines and Air Force had strong belief that a group of Ice Giants was going to erupt from the southern pole and begin a 5 year reign of destruction over the world. He mentioned how Washington was aware but was not going to do anything as they did not see them as something they couldn't take down.

Apparently the navy, marines and air force were not confident in this and believed that by enacting a coup, they could use their power to "whip the population into a state of strength. "

I lost the radio signal when I drove after that.

Anyway thanks for reading my blog I just saw the name and the memory came back.
It’s a comfy station, but the guests they bring on can be ridiculous.

while considering areas of code that could potentially get flagged as malware i've found these:
this finds where the program is on ur computer, and saves it to it's memory so that the folders presets and recent can be created in the correct directory (same directory as where the program is run). maybe in that process, windows doesn't like it checking in a directory that isn't the directory it's located in (it'll have to check at least in the directory above it, for example). this seems unlikely since these are native python methods.

i've included a method to display a message when there is a new update available. this is done by calling the github api for a json at this url:


windows may not like this network activity, and flags it as suspicious.

there is no code that downloads additional files to your computer or modifies anything outside of its directory.

i'll be looking into other methods to create the exe that don't have known issues with false positives. thanks for the notice!
microsoft responded to the submission with this:

Analyst comments:

We’ve reviewed your submission and we've confirmed that the submitted files are clean. Windows Defender Antivirus doesn't report them as malware.

The message you observed is a notification from Windows Defender SmartScreen indicating that the application does not have known reputation in our system. Application reputation warnings are meant to inform end users when applications do not have known positive reputation. This doesn’t mean that the application is malicious, only that it is “unknown”. Please note that users can still proceed to download and run the application.

In most cases, a digitally signed application will establish reputation organically, unless something has happened to denigrate existing reputation such as being used to sign malware. We will investigate this issue further and contact you if we need additional information.

The warning you experienced indicates that the application had not established reputation with the Microsoft Defender SmartScreen Application Reputation feature at that time. We can confirm that the application image_queuer.exe (sha256 – “1a4a9b9116936143647f40d5065d1c9a639f61e3fdfb0e6ff089df54d6da5a3e”) has since established reputation and attempting to download or run the application should no longer show any warnings. Please note, however, that the submitted files are not signed using a valid digital certificate. Unsigned files will have to establish reputation each time a new version is released. Application Reputation warnings are meant to indicate when applications do not have known positive reputation. This doesn’t mean that the application is malicious, only that it is “unknown.” Users can still proceed to download and run the application. If establishing reputation immediately is critical, you may want to consider investing in an EV Authenticode certificate. A valid EV Authenticode certificate can immediately establish reputation with SmartScreen reputation services even if no prior reputation exists. In order to be considered a valid EV certificate, the certificate must be issued by a Certificate Authority that is authorized by the Microsoft Trusted Root Certificate Program and recognized as an Extended Validation issuer.

my art professor told me that "Talent" is just a myth like magic fairy dust or the force and instead its all about skill and hard work

is he right that concept and idea of "talent" doesn’t exist?

talent and physical capabilities are different things, of course someone without parkinsons wont draw as well as someone able-bodied you retard

So the reason permabegs are permabegs is because they are physically and mentally handicapped?

Why You Should Copy Anime:
https://youtu.be/t_IODIIYAe0 [Embed]

**Strive for quantity AND quality.**

Anime Studying:
>Copy anime references exactly and draw them from memory. Use illustrations, screenshots, anime figures, 3D models, etc.
>Don’t copy recklessly. Use construction, color theory, and other fundamental concepts to rehearse a drawing process that you can later easily manipulate for original artwork.
>Post all of your anime studies. Post even when you’re told not to. Create an art community that actually draws and improves together instead of just talking about it.
>Number your attempts and link to your previous posts.
>Critiquers should lead by example by posting their studies.

General Anime Style Discussion:
>Questions about achieving certain styles/techniques/compositions etc.

anon you are right. even though this art is broken, it does have more appeal than you could have with weeks of time in a single piece. in the end it is all about appeal.
anon improved the pose even so not a direct trace.
New Thread:
oof, that's tough to here since I a handful of my drawings
woah woah hey you can do whatever you want in the sketch phase man it's 99% everything after that makes it pretty sketch just has to function

Seriously hide it?

Even /beg hides hands behind their characters.

I am following you to learn how to do draw things I can’t. Worst drawing advice ever.

Why people listen to this guy again?.

Perish the thought!
can you post your work

i have yet to see a tracer actually learn anything from tracing, and i'm not being malicious
Pyw and ill post mine
That's a smart advice for an illustrator u hide ur weakness and show ur strong points. Finish illust/works are different from ur typical practice session stupid.
Dont fret anon, tracers generally suck whenever you ask them to draw from imagination or invent new poses.

What do you personally do to get better?
I do figure drawing, revise anatomy, study artists, maybe pratice stuff like clothes.

I don't know what I should be doing or if there's a certain way to things i should going about this.
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
I just draw.
Firgure drawing and studying photos, breaking down elements
I do pretty much the same, I try to study what I'm constantly struggling with cause it's too easy to let it slip and mindlessly do more figure drawings and not actively improve on what I lack.
A rare piece of good advice I got from here was to not just study vaguely but also out of necessity while working on a project. ie if I wanted to start a project based around mecha beetles I'd start doing studies of both, and also draw some motherfucking medabots, but spend half the time just making my own shit so that I can keep track of what I'm lacking in.
Usually a theme of studies for a month or two like anatomy or value. Then broken down into weekly projects to apply what I learned as well as an overarching monthly or seasonal project to give me guidance for my weekly stuff such as a world building project
