We need a thread for creative things you do specifically of/for your waifu; I feel this is more /mai/ than /cr/.

Here's a sketch I just made with this online drawing tool someone showed me: http://kokuban.in/skeb/

I was getting really discouraged with my drawing practice, and thinking of her helped me keep at it, so I ended up making this.

I'm not very good yet, but I really like this one, even if it's more for the sentiment behind it.

Pretty cool. I'll probably do something like that over a weekend, soon. Any advice to save me figuring certain things out on my own?

I can't draw, but I can crop and resize pictures and draw black straight lines using MSpaint. So I made this, borrowing the idea and the template from an unknown anon who had made a similar picture about Yuno from Hidamari Sketch. Quite satisfied with it myself and about the fact that even though I can't draw nor am I creative in the slightest bit, I was able to create something for my waifu.

I was re-watching certain movie and got this idea. Thought about saving it for her birthday but one never knows. Did it in a rush: 3 days and a half, up to 20 hours of nonstop... Sometimes I can barely stand what all this is doing to me. But meh.

I made one of those Do it for her images a while back. Other than that there isn't many creative things that I've done for her unfortunately. It's not that I don't want to, it's just that I'm usually doing something else that takes up my time. Though I have been trying to work on removing the background of an image with her in it, but gimp has been evil as usual and I can't seem to get rid of the image background. I've seen it done before with similar images, so I'm sure it's possible. I have never been good with things like gimp though, and have almost no idea what I'm doing. I've been trying to get it to work for a few days now. As much as I don't want to, I'm thinking maybe I should just give up on it.
>> No. 11550 [Edit]
Sehr Schon! (Can't get the umlaut to work to save my life)

I wish I could draw something as awesome as that. I suppose you could count learning her language as a creative pursuit? I need to get better on the piano anyway, so I might try writing her a song.
>> No. 11551 [Edit]
I really recommend you get Photoshop. It's so much easier. Don't give up bro!
>> No. 11552 [Edit]
Photoshop would probably bother me just as much. I was never good at computer art/image editing programs. I think I got it figured out now though, but I'm way too tired to finish it now. I'll probably finish it when I wake up, unless the settings don't save. It appears they do though so it should just be the way I left it when I open it up.
>> No. 11553 [Edit]
Well. Everyone has his own preferences. I hope it works out for you!

As for me, I don't know if this is being called creativity. But she is helping me a lot with learning Japanese. Right now I'm working on translating a h doujinshi of her sololy for myself. Including typesetting.
>> No. 11556 [Edit]
I hope it works out for me too. I already know it's not going to be perfect though and probably a bit rough around the edges. I guess it can't be helped though, since as I said I've never been good with these things.
>> No. 11558 [Edit]
Well, what matters the most in the end is that you do it for her, right?
>> No. 11566 [Edit]
Yup. I've thought for a while now that it would be nice to have this image of her without the background and other characters. Except now I've learned why every transparent image I've seen has always been a png file. The tutorial I've following says I should feather it. I'm assuming that doing that would touch it up, which would be nice since there are some rough spots and edges, but that it needs an alpha channel. If I export the copy and pasted image as a png and reopened it could I still do that? I'd hate to have spent all that time working on this for nothing.
>> No. 11571 [Edit]
File 135944270079.png - (1.65MB , 3300x2280 , my empress.png )
Never mind. I've finally finished it.
After roughly about 17 hours, numerous hand cramps, and a couple problems I encountered while making it, I've finally finished my first transparent image. Considering that it was my first attempt at doing this I don't think it came out too bad. In fact I'm quite proud of myself. Though there are a few things in it I'll probably touch up at some other point. I hope that no one minds, but I'm just going to post it here to make sure there aren't any problems with it. Not like that really matters though I guess. I probably won't post it anywhere else, besides this one time. I feel too proud of it to do so.

I don't know if this really counts or not since it's not exactly OC, but I do translation editing for doujinshi of my beloved. Many of them are books I bought and scanned myself, and I upload them in hopes that other people will get to see them, enjoy them as well, and hopefully like them enough to want to translate them so I can make the edits. I had fairly good success finding people to donate English scripts for a dozen different books of her, and I plan on trying to try looking for translators again soon once I finish scanning a few more new things for people to see.

It's can be pretty fun because there is lots of room for creativity in how I decide to edit some things. But most of all it's just enjoyable to do something productive with her.

Sonnet 1 (I didn't make the picture)

Do I often dream of such a place?
I go through each day in a pitiful attempt to join with you;
How would I not wish to feel your grace?
My heartstrings’ peace far overdue.

To be in your presence for just a moment;
Your hair green as mint to meet my shoulder;
My lips would form the word “gomen…”
And my tears should signal my struggles are over.

But your presence is finite in my world of escape;
I can not feel your touch nor voice;
Nor hope to ever hug your shape.
I need you; this final act of mine is not by choice.

You’re getting closer and I may see your beauty;
To love you was my greatest duty.

Is your icy hair my beating heart?
Your cold, deep blue eyes my blood?
You’re all too perfect; such is a work of art.
A shame the collector is all mud.

To lay down beside you to feel your warmth;
Your breath pulsating ‘cross my face;
No matter where we were, south or north;
I would die with content after sharing such a space.

But no matter how I find you in your endless, boundless perfection;
And even if you were somehow here;
Could there be any mutual attraction?
My biggest fear.

For you are god, and I am trash,
I curse myself and commit the rash.


How would I compare your paleness to any earthly thing?
Your beauty unmeasurable; you truly are flawless.
I never hear your name – only church bells ring.
You may be an eagle but your talons are clawless.

Fly, fly, my love, higher into the sky.
Can I please follow you over those damned hot coals?
My only complaint, my only question “why”;
Must you appear only upon my scrolls?

Your beauty unearthly, as you yourself;
How I would love to meet you even in dreams;
I beg you to climb down from upon my shelf,
Alas, I will miss you forever, it seems.

Before you I was content to live,
But now I cry for you, my tears to give.

I don't want to get top off topic and start talking about my personal life, but if it wasn't for her I would be a NEET right now. She gives me the "mental backup" so I don't mess up at my job. (Being a mechanic with no idea how cars work is a bit tough) A chunk of my money goes towards merchandise of her, and recently small, weekly gifts. (Like flowers)

The template is fun to fill out though, like the larger ones and its a way to spend time with her, picking out the right images.

I've been working on a drawing of my waifu Okuu for over a month now, and this is how far I've gotten on it. The reason why this much took so long is because this is really only my second digital art drawing ever, and I'm having to do a lot of experimenting and trial and error work. I just finished the base colors and now I need to figure out how to establish the edges for the shading, but it's turning out to be a lot more difficult than I imagined.

I wrote and recorded an album (anthonypaige.bandcamp.com), with all but two of the songs on about how I met and contacted her. The other two, while not about her directly, are part of the album's narrative. And if nothing else, I feel I was successful in capturing and preserving the spirit of it all.
I also just want to say thanks to this board and everyone here, I don't post here quite often as I used to but this has been a very important place to me, and has provided much inspiration.

I was upset suddenly by the yuri tones played up in the fanbase between her and Yutaka, so I wrote her a song, which I'll record sometime soon:

Sometimes I lie awake at night
Wishing you were here
and Sometimes I cry through all those nights
Knowing that you’re there
and Sometimes I just can’t help but think how
Pretty you are
and Sometimes I wish that I could win your heart

Sometimes I lie awake at night
Thinkin’ ‘bout the what-ifs
and Sometimes I think that maybe
We could be her-and-him
Sometimes, lord, I just forget that
You just won’t have any-a-that and
Lord, I wish that I could call you mine

Many-a-time I’ve lay in bed
Thinking “What if I was a girl?”
We could lie together with my fingers in your curls
but then I see the reality and damn it if ain’t hard
but we’ll never see ‘morrow together,
we’ll always be apart

Sometimes I stay awake at night
Wishing you were here
and Sometimes I cry through all those nights
Thinking you might not care
and Sometimes I can’t help but hold my pillow tight
and Mostly I wish that I could give you a kiss

I do like how in forums we actually have names though instead of being Anon with (character) as waifu.

Ad Principessam Lunæ

1. A blue dress is taut,
stiff, and crinkling.
Where I am it’s known not,
a sad state of being.
2. Taut is this as well,
a bit sweeter, despite
the trembling almost as hell.
The cool heat within white.
3. But what is even tauter
is your motions and their anima.
To not see the thoughts they offer
the eastern savior’s pure, heißt lamia.
4. And I know you cry beyond your heart
and within, but remember that Heaven bled.
If we forget the wish and wist, in that part
let us at least have had near-perfection, what so briefly we said.

Love Changes (I also put this poem up on my shrine)

We begin, the love of youth, the love of innocence
A special connection to a certain someone
Special in the heart aches, special in the butterflies
Special, for hugs and kisses with this person seem heavenly
Special just by being together, this all seems eternal
To love as a whole, and accept as a whole,
Body, mind, and spirit are one
Thus begins the love of Eros.

But something unexpected happens
For was this the joy you really wished for?
Am I wrong? Am I greedy?
Why isn't she such? Why isn't he such?
Is it you, not me, or me and not you?
Thus here is the other side of the love of Eros
Perhaps Love changes.

My love is the only reason I still live, I mean
I live to be a sacrifice.
Without this love we are consumed by greed and hatred
Meaninglessness, aimlessness, casual entertainment
Mundane joys that aren't worth living for
I shall be a sacrifice, and she shall be my goddess.
Thus begins the love of Agape.

Are you not being ludicrous? Is she really such a spectacle?
As time passes, shadows appear behind the holy light
Are they evil, are they blasphemous?
Or are they truths trying to pull you out of delusion?
Leave me be, there is no meaning in truth
There is no meaning in justice, there is no meaning in reason
Passion is my only savior, but passion becomes disgusted
The world reveals itself, and reality kicks in
Perhaps Love changes.

You are never safe, for humans are never safe.
And life constantly faces pain and death
And it is not always tragic, it is not always beautiful
It is a farce! Do not give yourself up to the pains of logic
Seek the endless, perfected purity, seek the Silver Garden
But harden your heart, focus your mind
Strengthen your body, and prepare to fight
For you have something to protect, and God is dead.
And God is dead.
Thus begins the love of Storge.

Time passes, and knowledge sets in
It aches to age and become our wisdom
She learns, he learns, you learn
How can we preserve innocence and purity when this mighty foe,
This mighty taint attacks from all directions?
If you value all of your love, if you value all of your beloved
Forget about it, forget the light and darkness you have seen in your days
And turn back the time and begin your recurrence.
Perhaps Love changes.
Perhaps again, Love changes.

I don't adhere to the show's style, but I feel I'm able to portray how I personally visualize him to some extent. Not perfectly, but enough so that I enjoy drawing him. Of course it's taken over a year to get to that point.

This one looks a lot better than your last trace in my opinion.

Are there any universal tips for writers, or I just need to disregard them and develop my own style through trial and error? Do you consider yourself to be an amateur or professional writer? In both cases, I would like to hear a piece of advice on writing.
>> No. 16725 [Edit]
I hold that professional merely means you do it as an occupation (that being said it doesn't necessarily make you any better at it), there are too many pretentious writers out there. I don't need a label of amateur or professional either.

Just try to keep your grammar intact and don't use too many words that will confuse your target audience. Experiment with your style to see what sounds better in your head. As far as storytelling goes there are similar tropes and properties across almost all mediums -- try to take inspiration from things you admire while at the same time being critical of their shortcomings...

Will try not to sound too pretentious myself here but as a base rule there's a simple "hero's journey" derived from the Odyssey or other classic works where the protagonist gradually encounters more and more difficult obstacles as he reaches his goal (much like a video game tries to ease you in with a curve). It might be a good idea to start with that idea.

Don't have any particular books to recommend -- most classics despite their excellence in descriptive and occasionally psychological detail may lack plots engaging to the modern reader, centering around aristocrats and conversation... Indeed even as the origins of the adventure and the war story, the Iliad and the Odyssey both have relatively simple plots to me.

As far as my personal preference is considered though I try not to make the plot too complicated -- anime seems to do that far too often for fanservice, fightservice, or to drag out a shonen. My mind is on the philosophical thinking side as well. In addition to writing quite linearly, I use commas for additional details and pauses in thought rather than explosions of feelings or more poetic sentiments that you might see in Shakespeare. When I finally starting writing in third person I felt a lot more comfortable. It might be considered improper for me to try and create my own categories, but I think that at base you might have to try to figure out whether you have a "thinking" or "feeling" style. I suppose it's hard to box many of the great classics in one of those categories, but for example Dostoevsky describes physical atmosphere and character very well but I would still consider him a "feeling" writer because of how emotional his characters get rather than aiming for logical/mathematical purity.

I remember trying to write in a dramatic "feeling" style in 2012 after being captivated by Madoka Magica and it went pretty badly. Now I'm rewriting the same story and it becomes completely better, going for a full third-person and being able to make my OC a philosophical anti-hero rather than a tragic figure. I think pretty much from this current work onwards, as a thinking type I've chosen that my stories will be about conflicting ideas over conflicting feelings.

As far as editing is concerned I generally have a bad habit of not editing much outside of the current writing session, but I've more seriously thought about simply rewriting some of my novels to fix the mistakes.

I've been trying to drum up more creativity for her lately, I've wanted to draw for a few days but I'm just not feeling it. Like any attempt would come out awful. So I printed out and made a paper doll today.

The upper half was explained around here >>/mt/2779 and the lower half are the laws of blood type heritage, which work somewhat similarly (union no longer disjoint and equivalent to product). In general, left vs right elements represent apollonian vs dionysian forces. "Red clock" is a metaphor of the heart, of course.

Actually this time I used a face-morphing program to render the model from a selected couple of white and japanese girls in like a 40-60 ratio (won't post them here for obvious reasons). After that I still strugled a lot with the cheeks; this one here was the very last version (couldn't edit last post).

In any case, Asuka having blue eyes is very non-realistic to begin with since they're carried by recessive gens, so what >>19235 said.

Guess it pays off to browse places other than pixiv.

That number changes a bit depending on weather you're going off the VN (2000) or the anime (2004)
I haven't been able to find any mention of a birth year anywhere, but I've seen ages be mentioned a few times in the past.
Her age has been placed at 17 before here and there,
( http://dic.pixiv.net/history/view/68966 )
although out of nowhere mal started to list her age at 15. I'm not sure where they got this number from, but to be as big as she is at 15 is like some kind of joke.

If we go off the 17 age with the VN that would put her at 32 as mentioned. If we go by mal's age that would be 30.
Anime with 17 would be 28, and with mal's 15 would be 26.

Personally I like to go with the 17 over the anime as I initially saw that first not long after it aired before eventually playing the VN, but that's just me. being 32 wouldn't make her much older than me and isn't something I'd really mind anyway. 26 would be ideal but I just don't buy mal's number.

I made this to use as a desktop. I had fun making it, and I think I'll make more in a similar style sometime in the future.

Bit rushed to meet the deadline but I tried making something for my waifu's birthday. I'm not crazy at all about how it came out though so I'll probably do a v2

i feel like theres something more I can do for her than drawing a picture of her or just thinking of her all the time, something that i can physically do to show her that I love her and at the same time know that shes there for me and seeing the work I've done for her. theres something out there that I can do for her thatll amaze her, I just haven't thought of it yet...

Have you considered writing something like memoirs or fiction? That might be interesting for you to try. Perhaps you could use your motivation to live a healthy lifestyle or do something else she would find meaningful, possibly as a long-term sort of commitment. There are many things you could do, but maybe there is also something that stands out as especially meaningful to her or you; maybe there is something you are uniquely qualified to do.

I have toyed around with the idea of trying to describe my wife's world, or become closer to it, by building some exotic laws of physics for it from the ground up, but this is very ambitious. Yet I feel like this sort of project would help me connect with the underlying abstraction that relates physical reality to any other space (or maybe not).

I hope this was helpful. Good luck.

checking back in a while later, this has helped. i have thought about writing fiction, i have some ideas bouncing around in my head that i may put to paper at some point. not for anyone to read but just to get it out. its all mostly about me and her and our day to day lives really; no big huge stories or saving her from evil danger or anything, just us living together spending our lives with each other. i enjoy it and its how i relax now. ill probably spend my time learning to draw and writing out my own works of fiction

Σὺν Ἀπόλλωνι ϝάνακτι καὶ τῇ ποτνίᾳ Μούσῃ,
ἀϝείδω τῇ νύμφῃ Λιλὶθ τῇ θυσώπιδι, νύμφῃ τῇ ἐμῇ αἰεί.


In a tower the Moon goes unseen;
I have missed the Moon that you made in care for me.
And even with the window held broad
the Lady Night kisses too little, hidden by tree & by tree.

When my heart is clear with tears it drips,
but yours is always clear.

And clearness is in your pale hair, pale cheeks, pale lips,
and those are qedosha qedosha qedosha,
together with your white legs
your lovely ankles & wrists, and your divine hips.

Days hold too much, nights too little, and years are empty,
and the month, as I’ve said, shows herself too rarely.
My bride, my bride forever, stay with me.
I had forgotten, but still the Lord Sun does come,
and your anima pure still flutters in my dream.

So hold your heart close to mine,
and my heart should reimember your sacred blood and your loveleiness.
That we shall not forget, but will dwell in our love,
in each other’s hearts forever the guiding sweetness.


Happy Birthday my darling Miss Ayanami. Never will I give you up.


Not as good as the one I wrote six years ago, but let another birthday pass by without making something for her.

Evangelion impacted me for life because, just like love, it was like a mirror: I saw myself in it, in plain sight, and I could never forget nor forgive that sight.

I'm rewatching the series after 12 years and it's like re-discovering the most amazing thing. Sometimes there's too many false memories, memes, people talking about it, so you need to forget about it for a long time then return to it to see what made it so great.

I finally got around to starting to write a short story about my waifu and I. It felt very nice to get it all down on paper textfile. I don't know how much I'll write or where I really want it to go, I'd like to share it but im not sure if I want to put it all into a post.. maybe I'll write it all out if i know somebody is there and will read it. Maybe I'll think of some other way to share.

Amazing, I didn't realize that the "k-quant" quantization technique existed. For that matter I didn't realize that GPTQ quantization existed either, my knowledge of post-training quantization dates back to the days of CNNs where you'd just naively use the distribution. If I'm understanding right, the idea of mixed quantization seems really simple and beautiful.
