You have witnessed the CUTEST... most KAWAII thing in the world. It cannot be expressed merely by a :3 face... not even a :'3c
First, imagine what that cute thing is. I don't know, maybe something your cute cousin/little sister/niece did something cute? Maybe that feeling you get when you secretly sniff strawberry-scented loli-panties in the laundry room? Maybe you're on the other side of the spectrum and you can't contain yourself from rotting corpses on meathooks being collectively shoved in your asshole since you have a cute-fetish? MULTIPLY IT BY 1000. LET THAT BE YOUR MUSE!
Then... DRAW! DRAW LIKE YOU HAVE NEVER BEFORE! DRAW YOUR REACTION! DRAW THAT EMOTION YOU FEEL THAT YOU CAN'T POSSIBLY CONTAIN!
PAINT YOUR ETERNALLY UNREQUITED LOVE AND SUFFERING FROM NOT BEING ABLE TO SNUGGLE THAT CUTE THING YOU LIKE!
>My face when watching Lilpri.
I like it!
Question for photoshoppers.
Is it possible to edit .gif files and still keep the motion image it has?
Cause i'd really love a Kurokona edit of this one if possible.
That's just because the .gif file format only supports 256 colors, and her hair not being one of those 256 colors it just uses dithering to attempt to get as close as possible. If you wanna get the hair right you might wanna use an APNG since it uses a 24-bit color pallet.
256 colors and black isn't one of them? weird.
Doesn't look too bad though
>256 colors and black isn't one of them? weird.
There are many "shades" of black.
its not a consistent set of 256 colors, generally whatever jpg->gif or png->gif you're using will choose the 256 most common colors in the original 24 bits per pixel image.
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.;_;
everything new is built on something that came before it
as you gain more experience being creative you'll be able to go further above the norm and your works will be more original and less derivative
This man speaks the truth. Don't worry too much about what you're telling, what matters is how you do it.
Well, since quite a handful of brohnos play MtG or have some knowledge of MtG, it's time for a custom MtG card/set thread. Anything goes as long as it contains correct MtG syntax and shit that's not broken as fuck or not related to the color pie. You can even make cards of your waifu/related to your waifu, but that'll probably belong in /mai/.
Alternate art of MtG cards are also nice (preferably using animu screenshots), such as the one I have here.

These were from a couple of months ago.
I couldn't find the font typically used for Japanese MTG cards, but I guess this could do for now.
You are now realizing if it ever comes out, the eva movie will have actors that look nothing at all like the original characters.
Enjoy your Robin Willems as gendo
It'll end up looking more like this.
I know. Rummors about Emma Watson as Asuka were mentioned, too.
I raged, at first, but then I stop caring; because we all know that would be just a pathetic/laughable commercial move, like the Dragon Ball movie (lol), wich will have nothing to do with the real NGE...
I couldn't even take them seriously if they don't speak in japanese (probably in colaboration with the original seiyuus, lip-synchronazing or something).
Gendo looks like a skeleton.
Do we have any Vocaloid users in here? Care to trade tips or upload songs or something?
Do you have any advice for how to mess with the various traits (like breathiness, gender, whatever) throughout the song to make it sound overall better?
I am working on something now, I would be able to post it in a couple weeks if all goes decently well.
I would like to try this. I checked out some tutorial videos on youtube but I heard Miku is coming out with an English version soon so I was waiting for that.
Thought I'd make a guide on how to make simple flash loops. This is how I've been making them but if there are better ways of doing it I'm all ears. Post any betterments you can come up with.
Might try to cram the whole guide into one picture later.
What you need:
A music file
A version of Flash
A music editing program. I use Audacity since it's free and easy to use.
The size of your loop depends on how long the music and animations are and what quality they are in. Shorter with worse quality = smaller file. Try not to go above 2-3 MB in size since sites where you can upload your loops usually have a size limit somewhere around that area.
Another way to make your file smaller is to open the properties on the animation bitmaps and change the file from png to jpeg. Not necessary but small files are always nice.
Open up your loop in a web browser to see how it will look like once you've uploaded it to the interbutts.
Here's how it turned out. Not great by any means but sufficient for this guide.
I've posted other loops I've made in this thread. Please excuse the moon runes.
Here's another great loop for reference.
Thanks for reading! If there's anything you think should be changed or added, please do tell.
Pretty in-depth; I don't see anything that will really confuse people who are new to this. Just to expand on a couple things, I'm not trying to upstage you or anything:
An easier way is to align the gif to the top left corner, go the Documents Properties, and just hit the Contents tab. No need to remember pixel dimensions.
Please at least do 64 kbps. That's already ear rape; I couldn't imagine going any lower.
Some of you may recognizance from the style what this resembles. Yes, I'm gonna make gordon freemon's crowbar
right now, I can tell it's gonna be a hell of alot of work, due to the surface being so corroded that it's now bumpy instead of being smooth. I'm gonna have to get fresh sandpaper and break out the belt sander to get it smooth again.
You can do it!
Keep it rusty. Say it's corroded from all the headcrab blood.
OP, try starting with one made out of something that that won't corrode, like titanium.
After you acquire it, pick up some hockey stick grip tape. Red, naturally. You now have a lightweight, functional Freeman bar. There are various textured spray paints, but I already had the tape, and I knew it would be easy to hold on to, whereas the spray stuff was an unknown.
What are some tips for learning to use a tablet? I recently bought a Bamboo tablet(Not the Bamboo Fun), and it feels as though it is too sensitive when I'm drawing. I've tried changing some of the settings to no avail. Also, was this the correct tablet to buy?
Like the others have said it really is just a matter of getting a lot of practice, just like drawing on paper. It's strange at first but eventually you will get used to separating the motions of your hand and what you see on the screen.
As far as sensitivity goes, this is really just a matter of the size of the tablet you buy, which is why the larger tablets are so much more expensive. You could keep going with the (I am assuming small) Bamboo or upgrade to a larger size. As someone who has owned 2 graphires, an Intuos, and now works on a Cintiq I can speak from personal experience that if you plan on taking digital art seriously the upgrade is very much worth it, the Bamboo and similar lines of product are designed mainly for casual or light use.
I'm going to start out on this for a while and if I do end up sticking with it I will probably buy a new one. Also I'll probably post some picture I've drawn to get some critique, others may do so as well. I also need to learn how to shade well so that I can learn how to color well.
I've found, and this is just my personal experience, that learning the fundamentals of drawing like line weight, shading, and coloring are best learned with more traditional media, it is just more intuitive. With digital art there are more degrees of separation between you and the concept you are trying to learn. Strictly for learning groundwork processes pencil and paper (and oil paints) have worked best for me. Physically mixing paints and moving a brush across canvas then seeing the finished product is satisfying in a way I think digital work can't be. I still prefer working traditionally but there are just sometimes where that just is not practical which is why I use tablets.
Learn to draw on paper first. You should at least get line weight variation down before starting too heavily on your tablet as its sensitivity can make consistency difficult.
I do know the basics of shading etc. although I could probably use more practice with coloring.
Can I just get your opinion on which of these flash files has better walking animation and which looks better in general.
I liked the first one better. Like >>99 said, try to get some knees in there, heighten the distance the feet rises and you should be good.
Thanks for the suggestions!
Here's the flash I've been working on till now.
Opinions and suggestions are very welcome!
Nice. The only thing I'd change is that the light when Quickman comes out of the door would probably look better if they looked more like the sun beams used later in the video.
Better than I was expecting. You really need to work on your perspective, though.
So if any of you have seen /a/'s draw threads, people request something, a drawfag makes it. Well this picture I made they said looks like it was drawn by a 14 year old its so bad. Is it true? Am I that incompetent? I'd spoiler it for NSFW, but doesn't work here.
I am a bit drunk now; but faped already.
Yeah, it's shit, bro. Also, those threads are fucking cancer. That exact same deviantart thread has been reposted over 300 times in a row.
OP I know this is going to annoy you, but find a model and use it for reference before you draw. You'll never be good otherwise.
I don't even know if thats a 14 year old's drawing. Hell, I can't draw that well even now.
