I baked a chicken thigh. I rubbed a mix of hoisin sauce/lime juice/hot sauce/sake in to it before baking. I served it over rice and added a mix of the same spices I added before baking.
and before that i roasted some chopped-up lamb with potatoes
Looks really good. What's that green sauce on the steak plate, and the brown sauce on the lamb?
The green sauce on the steak plate is guacamole
The brown sauce on the lamb is gravy made with the lamb juices
I like to cook middle-eastern and central-asian style food. I guess one could call it Silk Road food because I often blend the two as well. I recommend getting a small spice shelf with the bare basics on it, they aren't hard to use and can add a lot to a lot of different foods. Last Monday I made myself some Baursaks for a Nauryz meal as a little side project. I forgot to take photos but if I do them again, I'll take a few. They're essentially a sweet puffy fried bread. I'm also thinking that this weekend or sometime soon anyway, I'll do another batch of Manti which are Eurasian dumplings. I tend to do Kazakh style when I do them, I like the simplicity of Kazakh Manti which are usually meat and pepper. You also cut the fat out of the fillets and render it down until you have the liquid fat and then you add that back into your filling. What this does is make the meat stew in its own fat when you steam them and makes the dumplings really juicy and flavoursome. It also meant that you got the most energy out of the food with minimal wastage which is pretty important or a pastoral culture.
Protip. If you end up with this much dough for your Manti, pray that you have half a lamb in the fridge because it'll make a metric shit ton of dumplings. I ended up having a lot of it left over. I used maybe a quarter of it to make ~20 Manti.
This will be a thread for beginners to post their pictures and have people who are more experienced give them advice on how to improve.
I will be posting some of my work shortly.
Could use some more shadows.
I was too lazy to finish this one since I've been on it for so long and time has been sparse. I should probably be more dedicated though, for sure.
But she is stabbing herself in the shoulder with a (poorly drawn) pencil.
Here is my last drawing, it only took so long because I was dumb enough to not use tabs. This is where my inability to draw proper anatomy shows the most so don't hold back anything with this one.
A thread to post your drawings.
I don't see one.
But anon, this isn't a drawing. I do want to ask more about your planet and its circumstances, but I don't feel this thread is the appropriate one for it.
Where can I put my planet to a more suitable place?
There's a "Post the last image you made" thread (http://tohno-chan.com/cr/res/1768.html) which I think it's more suitable. But you could always make a world-building thread or a planetary thread; I checked, neither exist in this board.
A quick sketch of Maeve I made a few days ago when I was doing my homework.
I uninstalled the game later that day.
Testing recording / uploading / stuff
As annoying as it will sound, Elemile... Would you trade me capitalizing the first letter of your display name in exchange for a follow? Every time I try to enter the page and follow my autism explodes and my grammar nazi brain screams "CLOSE THE PAGE AHHHH".
It's an older track but I'm sticking with this one.
Piano song (file too large again):
I like this a lot!
Please accept my apology for posting 3D.
I'm sure that most of the people here will recognize the image as being inoffensive and (I hope) possibly even slightly amusing.
this is a diagram a friend did for me explaining how he spilt his tinned fruit
I just whipped up my dream planet, Lucia. I am only open for RPs in appropriate boards whenever available, but not in here. This is just a quick what's going on at the moment during the spring of 2218 AD.
Main continent: Lucians (light blue)
Meridia: Dormilians (purple)
Red Sun Mountains: Yan Tribe (brown)
Mysterious Archipelago: Sun Pirates Clan (yellow)
Mitakihara: Various magical girl teams, including Idol Master (pink)
Unknown territory: Night Raiders (dark red)
Monchrome: Colorless people from Yume Nikki's White Desert (light grey)
Yerivia: Chasers, various monsters from all over the galaxy that pursues lucid dreamers with the intent to harvest soul energy(orange)
Let me know what you think about this planet. I want this world to be recognized (love-hate or love-love relationship) within the year as my goal.
>I just whipped up my dream planet, Lucia
Why the name?
>I am only open for RPs in appropriate boards whenever available, but not in here.
What does RPs stand for?
>This is just a quick what's going on at the moment during the spring of 2218 AD.
Is that time consistent with the later-mentioned magical girl teams, gensokyo and colorless people from Yume Nikki? Why do these three continents contain brand characters from somewhere else?
>I want this world to be recognized (love-hate or love-love relationship) within the year as my goal.
Recognized by whom or where? And how?
>Why the name?
From a dream character that saved me from monsters during a night terror episode when I was kid. From then on, I have no more dreams due to autism, nothing I can do but deal with it.
>What does RPs stand for?
>Is that time consistent with the later-mentioned magical girl teams, gensokyo and colorless people from Yume Nikki?
In dreams, there is no consistency, because when we enter REM sleep the logical part of the brain shuts off.
>Why do these three continents contain brand characters from somewhere else?
Thycia: Welsh for "to avail", "profit", and Greek for "rites of sacrifice".
Meridia: A land dedicated to the Daedric Prince of Life and Lady of Infinite Energies.
Yerivia: Inspired by the Spanish tragic play from the 1930's.
>Recognized by whom or where? And how?
When there are more interested people giving their own interpretations about my planet.
For traditional drawfags, what do you like to use most? Charcoal, acrylic paint, simple pencil?
For digital drawfags, what program do you use and/or what tablet do you have?
Maybe we can even recommend things we find helpful to other drawfags.
I use a CTH-460 and photoshop CS6
Traditional: pencil, colored pencil and watercolor.
Digital: Photoshop CS6.
I manage with that.
The next movie.
Get this 3DPD away from me. I can't stand live action adaptations, ruining the beauty of 2d.
I don't think Lain has anywhere near enough mainstream appeal for it to ever get an adaptation.
Anyone here code anything lately? or want to work on any projects together?
Sorry, no. Can't into it.
Good luck, though.
I am trying to learn Forth in my free time.
Its a very interesting and fun language, but confusing to work with sometimes.

Submit anything and everything related to your original characters here whether it be ideas, advice, rough sketches, final drawings, facial expression charts, or feedback. Perhaps some users could give advice or ideas to others who need help completing their character but only if it's welcome.
Don't tell me what to do.
Like you're one to talk.
I bought gamemaker for a couple of bucks during the humble bundle thing. Finally got around to using it and it's been pretty fun. Post what your working on. Video related. I'm not exactly sure where it's going yet but hopefully it will be compelling.
