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 wanted to put some acrilix in front of the cases but it seems every business in the area has been building forts out of the stuff to cover their check out lines/registers, so I decided to call it with this. Getting the two cases to plug in together was a pain in the butt. I ended up having to take these rather heavy things down to rethink the method and try again. But even after getting them to sort of work, I think I screwed something up because they wont stay on for long before the adapter gets stupidly hot and shuts them down. Gonna have to keep them powered off until I can get around to figuring out what the problem is. I can only assume they cases didn't plug in properly, as I was kinda doing that blind.

The plan was to make backgrounds and dioramas for each space in the units. They're basically just BG I screen capped or found online and printed out. I'll eventually have to redo the backgrounds that are in place now because I made them with another display case in mind which I was using before this.
And sorry for the shit quality cam. It needs good lighting but I'm planing on leaving the case off for now because I think there's a fault in the wiring causing a short. The power adapters I connect to this thing get stupidly hot and turn off, which could possibly start a fire. It sucks but I think I'm gonna have to take these cases back down, open them up, and fix the wiring.

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.

I was going to post a few pictures on the steps of making fried rice, but the quality was so bad that it wasn't worth it. Here's one most of the way through. It's basically fried rice for people who don't want to put that much effort into it, I eat this just about every evening in one large portion, because I do not eat very much for the majority of the day. The thing that dictates taste most is how well the rice is made (how much water to use, how long to cook it). After this it's easy to be consistent. After you make the rice, make some eggs in a pan (I use 3 usually) and scramble them on about half way heat on the gas burner. You don't need to cook them completely just so that they're not runny because you still have to add rice etc and they will continue cooking. Then put all the rice in the pan and stir it up with the eggs. When it's all stirred add oil (any kind works, I have olive oil) what I do is put a little bit around the rim of what's in the pan. Then stir it up and add soy/tamari sauce. The amount of this used is the second thing that dictates taste, and if you use low salt or regular kind. I usually make 1.5 cups of dry rice, and based on what I measured today about 1/8 cup (not exact) of sauce works well. Then stir it and leave it till it browns rice a bit, then add vegetables. Sometimes I add green onion if I have it but I don't today. I usually just use a ton of broccoli. I get it frozen, with that you can just take it out of the freezer and put it in the pan frozen. A good way to gauge when its done is just to turn off the heat when the vegetables have thawed out completely. It's a pretty quick meal to make, and it tastes great at least I think so. The process is basically stir, wait 10 seconds, stir, etc. until it's done. You could probably very easily make better fried rice by looking it up a bit and putting some more things in, but far as I'm concerned it's 80% of the result for a fraction of the effort.

Here's what I've been eating for breakfast lately. Pancake with whipped cream and instant coffee with milk.

The pancake recipe is as follows:
Dry: 1/2 cup (~60 g) flour, 1 Tbsp (~12 g) sugar, 1 tsp (~4 g) each of baking powder and spice mixture, a sprinkle of salt.
Wet: 1 Tbsp (~15 mL) oil (I've been using canola but any neutral oil works), 1 egg, 1/4 cup (60 mL) milk.
Mix dry with dry, wet with wet, then mix dry with wet. I cook it at a low heat, and when the top has bubbles all over it I flip it once. It takes maybe 10 minutes or less in total on the stove. I don't measure anything for it, but the batter should not be too runny. It should be somewhat thick.

For the whipped cream, I start by keeping a metal mixing bowl and whisk in the freezer overnight. I take it from the freezer and pour in 1-2 Tbsp (15-30 mL) of heavy whipping cream and lately 1 tsp (4 g) sugar. I then whisk the shit out of it, which takes about 3-5 minutes. I usually do the whisking while the pancake is on the stove and after I've washed the dishes.

Homemade whipped cream is the best. Nice mug too.

There recently was a time in my life when I was so depressed I stopped drawing, so i decided to counter that with a little project I'm calling "A 2hu a Day" (or a few if I'm in the mood)
It's so I dont stop drawing again and continue to improve
I'm starting with every character from EoSD (I will do 1~5, as SoEW is my favorite game in the entire series, but the windows era will be easier)
I'll update you guys every few days with the newest ones

It's not on purpose
My art style has been influenced a lot by ZUN's art and Akira Toriyama's earlier works, so it can sometimes seem like I'm purposefully drawing that way when drawing 2hu's
But nah, it's my regular art style that I use for all of my drawings

Anyone else get depressed when thinking about how manga and the like are made. All I can ever do is think of things I like to do in / to existing works. It makes me feel like a virus or something.I was rereading Negima and realized I'll never think of anything as cool as having an entire world spatially bound to Mars.;_;

A little bit. I come up with stories sometimes and plenty of characters. I want to make some manga someday, I want to tell those stories even if what I make never goes beyond getting published. I just want them to be told. But drawing is exhausting for me and artists are so good at getting out so many good pictures in a short amount of time. I don't think I'll ever be able to get to that point and if I do I'll be the most tired I have ever been by the time I'm done. Still, I try to practice drawing.

>I was re-reading Negima
I like you just from this alone. I love Negima. I started using the name Negi Springfield 10 years ago. It's one of the most enduring names I've used online. So, it goes without saying that Negima has a special place in my heart.

>not using a Negima pic for your OP
I'm a bit disappointed.

After a long time of being a lazy bum I finally finished the first Tohno-house comic. You can make some as well if you like and post them here.

This features Kilo (the inumimi) and Tohno.

Lotsa flaws, I know. I'm not a good artist.
>> No. 2783 [Edit]
I want to nitpick about the decision to make the panels into weird squares like that, but I suppose that it's up to the author. The art is good, however.

I don't have any talent in drawing whatsoever, so I cannot participate because I'm a useless failure incapable of keeping up.

I just thought up a nightmare scifi scenario I'd like to ask if you think its spooky enough before fleshing out the idea. The hypothesis I'm basing my idea on is that after humans go into space and live in low/zero gravity situations the physical penalties for obesity are reduced and the fatties are able to grow to enormous sizes without being crushed to death under the weight of their own hideous mass. After a few generations the fatties have evolved bodies more in line with their excess nutritional intake and as everything else about them grows, so does their brains. The fattest of fatties grow super smart and conquer humanity completely, possibly eating a lot of us in the process and eventually enormous space whales the size of planets rule the universe an thats how it all plays out in the end. Fatties win bigtime.
What do you think?

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
http://tohno-chan.com/images/griddraw/grid.html

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

I would choose the coin because I would want to be able to enter the pocket dimension whenever, wherever I wanted, and not have the door/garage rendered inaccessible from something being built in front of it or something. I'll also set it to not have time pass in the real world, so I can use the pocket dimension to escape real-world responsibilities.

I was going to pick "grassland" because the picture they used looks comfy, but I think I'll go with the island because I like water, and I'll also choose the Wildlife add-on, hopefully the "no bugs" rule doesn't exclude hermit crabs (my favorite animal), and I'll also have the Events add-on so I can have things like bioluminescent dinoflagellate blooms in the water, Tree & Shrubs for some nice foliage, the brook so I can have cool fresh water, and Fickle Weather in case I get bored of all sunny clear days.


For the living room I would like the supernaturally comfortable furniture, the streaming service with every movie & TV series because I won't have contact with the outside world but I still want to watch my chinese cartoons, and the stereo w/ complete digital library of songs, for the same reason.

As for the kitchen, I would like the food replicator, the breakfast nook because I like the way "breakfast nook" sounds, and the fictional ingredients because there is a lot of fictional food that I'd like to eat, such as the Gels from the Tales series.

In the bedroom I'd want to sleep in temperature controlled blankets, on the ultra-comfort mattress, and have all physical needs and imperatives halted.

There isn't a whole lot of stuff listed that I would really want, for the bathroom, but I think I'd have it double sized, with maybe the automatic groomer...?

But in the library I would love to have the ability to focus and not get tired while reading, and I'm taking "periodicals" to mean that I (hopefully) can read webtoons and other sequential picture books and stuff in there as they're released.

What do you mean by nostalgic? The Guardians of the Galaxy movie was released in 2014, a couple months less than 4 years ago. And inb4 "comics", Drax didn't look anywhere like that before the film.
>> No. 2918 [Edit]
>>2917
Mid-2000s and on, Drax looked like that, after he was killed and restored on Earth, with the red markings and all, which is what I'm nostalgic for (Annihilation era). The art that was used in the CYOA, even if it is a little different is enough to bring up those comfy memories.
