I'm homesick, bros. >>3131 >it's pretty pathetic by default If you and your parents get along well, and if you're helping them and working, then I wouldn't worry about it. It's more important that you focus on your family than worrying about what modern society thinks. >>3139 >I make much more than my peers and still live with my parents. Also worth noting that you probably save a lot of money on rent t. planning on moving back home once I find remote work >>3143 >Sense of responsibility, independence and maturity I was a NEET for most of 2020 and then recently became employed. I wouldn't say I became more independent, just more isolated. As for responsibility and maturity, those come with maintaining strong family bonds.
Not sure I should be reigniting the discussion, but >>3092 >The type of person too stupid and lazy to do anything on their own magically gains the ability to do so when in college? Yes, that's literally how shit works for a lot of people. I don't come from an art background (math mainly) so maybe it's different here, but it's much easier to get yourself to read a textbook when you're grade depends on it and you can work with other people instead of you just sitting in your room. Even better if instead of reading the dense book, you use it as a reference when doing a pset or studying after listening to a teacher 's lecture where you can take notes and ask questions. I've only ever managed to read a math book once in my life and it was after I had already taken the class and had the summer to fuck around. But I probably only got through it because I was already exposed to all the concepts there so I could actually read it and develop some sort of intuition towards what I was actually reading. I'm not trying to say "you're not gonna make it" I wish it was "we're", but I can't say I've made a serious attempt. Not do I want to say college is good since the whole system should probably be redone in some way. But I do think some sort of community or group helps a lot when learning something. At least this was the case for me and math. I could been more motivated, but it was a lot easier for me to study shit I struggled with with others than just sitting in my room at 4 in the morning. You have to be very disciplined to self-study (which I definitely wasn't). Although maybe this mindset is why I can't fucking start this shit.

trying to design a shipgirl
>>3128 Why she burnt tho
>>3129 Is based in an infamous Steam Submarine that has a lot of design issues and a lot of the subs of this class sunk due those issues. The interiors were hot as fuck because of the dual diesel-steam engine apparently, lots of sailors were injured or died in this steel cages and the class was called K-Class for Kalamity or Killer. So I thought it would be good to put a lot of injuries in her design to show that and maybe a more gloomy aura, but I'm stilll dont sure.

Drawing Hardware General Anonymous 05/09/2021 (Sun) 14:14:30 No. 2780 [Reply]
A THREAD FOR DIGITAL DRAWING HARDWARE AND PERIPHERAL QUESTIONS I was drawing this morning and my tablet (HUION WH1409 8192) pen's pressure was acting up and I pressed down harder on it thinking the nib was stuck or something but I felt the nib get lodged into the pen. The nib was really stuck in there but I managed to get it out. HOWEVER, now it's not registering pressure whatsoever and I've tried sticking objects down the shaft to see if I could maybe get whatever was in there out or maybe reset the pressure mechanism, but to no avail. I'm pretty sure it's just fucked. I found what model it was online but how exactly does replacing a previous pen work? Should it work out of the box when I touch the new pen to my tablet or am I going to have to install new drivers? Are the settings on it going to have to be reset?

>>2838 the One is relatively new and though I've never used it, from all appearances it doesn't look like it has that kind of surface-but I could be wrong. If your nibs are wearing out really quickly though I can only assume that could be "One" reason why. It's almost impossible to tell from the pictures alone. If it feels like it has any appreciable grit or texture then that is the likely culprit. In the past the Wacom 3s and 4s had basically a slick rubbery plastic surface which preserved nibs for long periods of time.
>>2839 Yeah, I've had it set right down the middle but I'll try gradually increasing the sensitivity. >>2842 Yeah, it doesn't seem to be any rougher than a hard plastic surface. Most likely just a me problem. Thanks, anons.

>>2706 Thanks, that was quite useful to me, although the Proko thing shows the arm from the lateral side (out of curiosity, did you also assume that the thumb side of the forearm is medial? I made that mistake at first and only found out I was wrong after googling to double check). Assuming the Ecorche model is accurately proportioned it helped correct a couple things. I also found >>166 which kind of helped a little. After significant amounts of cross referencing and double checking; that twist really messed with my head.
>>2713 >did you also assume that the thumb side of the forearm is medial? (yes) >Assuming the Ecorche model is accurately proportioned it helped correct a couple things. Good to hear. I found a lot of that stuff pretty helpful though it remains somewhat incomplete. Perhaps there are better models floating around out there now.

Don't neglect your wonderful body, Anon. Physical health and mental health are strongly correlated; become a man worthy of your anime Original Character girlfriend's heart and realize your true potential in the disgusting, 3D Pig-Dimension through the time-honored technique of lifting things off of the ground into an anatomically strategic position and then putting them back down again! Official /loomis/ home gym workout routine for amateurs All exercises use light dumbbells (10lb, 20lb and 40+lb for lower body exercises-and a $20-$30 door frame pull up bar recommended) or body weight and are performed 3 sets proceeding until failure. Each days' series of exercises should require roughly two episodes of japanese girl cartoons worth of time to complete. Recommended concurrent viewing for maximum gains and motivation (feel free to recommend your own below!): Baki the Grappler: https://4anime.to/anime/baki JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: https://4anime.to/anime/jojo-no-kimyou-na-bouken-tv Keijo: https://4anime.to/anime/keijo Hajime no Ippo: https://4anime.to/anime/hajime-no-ippo Hokuto no Ken: https://4anime.to/anime/hokuto-no-ken https://exrx.net/Lists/Directory Day 1 - the Biceps of Bridgman: Dumbbell Hammer Curl

Do you keep a backlog of things to draw? Are you waiting for your skill to catch up or do you just not have the time or motivation? Do you ever actually work through your ideas or is it still piling up? I have a txt that I keep everthing from random stuff I want to draw to full blown autistic webcomics. As of yet I'm not good enough for any of them. I wonder how many years it'll be until I git gud enough to make that flatland animaton with a cowtits carl sagan and a dfc.
