A mysterious letter was found on his desk that read ">>2642 is a faggot".
>> No. 2661 [Edit]
The peculiar message confused Obama's army of guards and robots. They gave the letter to the head of the Illuminati. "I think I understand," Ron Paul said, "Obama's last wish must be for >>2642 to become the new president. So be it. I, Head Master Illuminati Ron Paul, declare >>2642 to be the new president of the United States of Free Market."

Ron Paul then turned to >>2642 and said "Well Mr. POTUS, what do you have to say now that you're the new leader of the the entire planet Earth?"
In which >>2642 simply responded "Touhou is shit."

Meanwhile at Obama's house

Not the guy you're responding to but while there's nothing wrong with having a unique artstyle PSG's is pretty damn awful.
>> No. 2623 [Edit]
Intentional or not if lazy ugly rudimentary art isn't inherently wrong then what is?

"generic moeblob" actually takes some skill to draw, people practice art for years to get it down properly. It's not like western cartoon garbage any five year old can draw. Big heads/eye jokes aside you need a good understanding of human anatomy, how light and shadows effect objects, how different types of cloth work and react to different objects, and an understanding of perspectives reflections and all other kinds of variables which are largely ignored in P&SwG. P&SwG's 'artstyle' disregards these principles which is what makes it wrong.

That is also why "generic moeblob" has that lower fps you criticize it for, because it takes much more time and effort to draw something that detailed repeatedly. Anyone can give a few blocks and some triangles smooth animation, that's nothing to be proud of.

Western cartoons take more practice & skill to draw because they tend to be more stylized & more "animated", so you need to have a better understanding of how things work to draw something so completely unrealistic and still have it move and flow naturally.

>P&SwG's 'artstyle' disregards these principles
That's the entire point of stylized art.

>which is what makes it wrong.
What about Paul Cezanne, or Pablo Picasso, or Jean Metzinger? Does their disregard for rules make their art "wrong"?

>That is also why "generic moeblob" has that lower fps you criticize it for, because it takes much more time and effort to draw something that detailed repeatedly.
No it doesn't. It has a low FPS because most animation studios want to save their budget for an important scene, like I said.

>What about Paul Cezanne, or Pablo Picasso, or Jean Metzinger? Does their disregard for rules make their art "wrong"?
Yes, they're overrated hack frauds.

DIY stands for Do It Yourself; anyone into it?

There's loads of dedicated wikis and forums on the subject, so I want to relate it with TC. Being hikki, neet, unnormal, social outcast or what have you, may imply that money gets tight, but free time maybe not. Doing/making it yourself instead of buying it can help the shorts meet the ends.

I'll use myself as an example:
I don't work, and I don't intend to anytime soon either. I love music, and I want it to sound its best, so I look to hi-fi. Hifi is expensive, but it can be made by amateur hands if you know what you want. I could invest in a $2000 amp.. or I could make one myself for $200. The money you save by making what can be made by common folk yourself can be spent on what can't be made by common folk - like computers or figurines. Hell, computers can be assembled by anyone, servers can be old, repurposed hardware, and a chassis can be whatever you want. If you're modest about your needs, even figurines can be made by hand - through clay, paper, wool, repurposed dolls and maybe open source 3D printers in the near future.

Imagination is the limit, and all you need is the right material, time and a will to make it happen. The down-side is that material can be hard to find, good end-result is not guaranteed, skill can be limiting, learning process can be exhausting and there are hazards if you're not careful.

I hope we can get a nice thread going if there's interest, and my hope is that we can help, motivate, share and lift up eachother and make some great stuff. I'll be sharing ideas, projects and works in due time.

I was a fair way into the painting process before remembering the LEDs. At first I was gonna leave them unpainted but thought that wouldn't look too good so what I did was dropped little dabs of elmer's glue over each LED so I could paint over the whole thing and pull the paint off latter easily. After all elmer's glue doesn't really stick that well to.. anything really lol.
Unfortunately I didn't block off the back well enough and that kinda screwed up the finish. Already applied like five coats of paint on the thing, removed all the tape/paper, and really just wanted to get it over with so I just rolled with it.

Some of us figured we'd give a group grid drawing thing a try, you know, like, everyone draws a block, that sort of thing.

Submit in this thread candidates for a possible image we'd be using.

As the blocks are made, I'll update this page

once a image has been selected and started, To avoid confusion post in the thread stating which grid you'd like to make.

There's no thread for it, so I figure post any little thing you wrote here, if you want to share it with the class. Don't even have to be too proud of it, get it out there at least. I wrote this just today (hence the "I care about poetry all of a sudden").

Lamentations from a 2D Lover to his Waifu
O! I can never see this paragon of purity, powerful princess of my oh, so heavy, heart
O! I will never feel that princess ensconced in the castle of my arms, for she will be behind screen for eternity
She throws an object that gets closer and closer, until it is in full vision: My, my, the princess through a dart
That princess teases me behind the computer screen, and I sit, thinking in nothing but misery

What a fool I must be to bring love to the feet of this princess behind the screen
Because there is no romantic quest to embark on, there is no villain to be slain
Only the hum of the hard drive, working endlessly to provide her to me in a vague dream
What a man I am, what a man, to be blessed or to be cursed, to be able feel this unique, bittersweet (sometimes more bitter than sweet) pain

O! My love, my love, tell me when we will meet - In the afterlife? After that, perhaps?
O! You cannot speak to me, I forget, mind clouded by misery, what shall I do?

If you want to write, but have motivational problems, I've thought of a game we can play. All who want to participate should adopt a trip for this thread only.

What we will do is first wait for at least 4 total participants, then draw random numbers from 1 to 100. We will take turns starting from the highest draw to the least to suggest a topic to write about, and everyone writes based off of that. It could be a character profile, setting, scene, premise, picture, or anything. I only ask that you don't pick something that you can submit without writing something new, because the whole point of this is to write new things.

The submission should be around 2,000 to 10,000 words, but more or less is fine as long as you keep it within reason. Don't stress too much about it. That's just a guideline if you need one.

You can enter at any time during the course of the month, just express your interest in this thread, with a trip, so you can be added to the queue of topic selectors. Past the initial four people, everyone else will be added to the queue in order of which they express interest to write. Once we cycle through everyone, we can draw random numbers again to reset the queue.

Please don't post your story until exactly one month has passed since the topic was selected, tohno-time. Then, we can take three days to let everyone read and post before picking the next topic.

Even if you don't feel confident about your writing, I encourage everyone who is interested to give it a shot. It's a chance for all of us to improve and stay motivated, no matter the level we're at.

When we get four people, we can get random numbers from 1 to 100 at http://www.random.org/ on the right-hand side, and I'll update the queue in the OP post.

>7:29 AM, Friday
Winter is approaching. I awoke this morning with a chill that penetrated all the way down to my bones. I had a dream I was running. I don't know why I was running, but I wanted to be the last man standing. It might have meant something. I'm not sharp, I don't know what.

It felt like a Saturday. Everyday feels like a Saturday to me. True NEET by day, house guardian by night. I don't have friends or obligations, and very little family to speak of. I probably did once. I don't care to, or remember anymore though. That was another life -- another person. That was the me before anime, before games, before obsession took over.

My day consists of guarding the house, eating scrambled eggs, and lurking a website that I accidentally, or rather, luckily stumbled across during one of my many adventures on the internet.

It's called Tohno-chan. The guy who started it calls himself Tohno, and Minagi is his waifu. Weird. I'm not one to judge though. I steal Japanese cartoons and pause to masturbate when I get a good angle. That's the life I choose to live.

Or rather, that was the life I lived until 7:45 this morning. I jiggled the mouse and awoke my sleeping companion, poised myself like an erect cock at the entrance of the virgin-like tchan, and readied myself mentally to deflower it in one, swift thrust.

Something stopped me. There was something I noticed that I could never have noticed until that moment in time on this particular day. Everything changed.

I have a mission. And there's not a goddamn thing anyone can do to stop me.

I have created a text based computer game that some of you may be interested in. Though the storyline is open to interpretation, it would be especially relevant to those of you with a waifu, hence why I post it here.

The game can be found at http://pastebin.com/cYSCtNY2. You will need to install Python to run it.

It has been a long time since I have been on this website. I am glad to see that /mai/ and all are still going strong.

wonderful, i like how you coupled text adventure with ascii graphics

why dont you build binaries for lazy people?
>> No. 2452 [Edit]
I am glad you like it.

The installation instructions have been updated to be more straightforward. I did consider releasing a binary distribution, but decided against it for a few reasons:
* You cannot edit the code (to enable/disable cheating, etc.)
* If there is a crash, you cannot view the error message, which makes tracing bugs more difficult.
* I would prefer for it to be open source.
Even so, I haven't ruled out the idea.

Please report any bugs or spelling mistakes you encounter. Also, if you have any questions I would be happy to answer them.
