I plan on hosting artga.in for as long as people are willing to use it. If Harb decides to come back I will try to reach an agreement with him. I do not guarantee anything but I will notify you in advance if I ever decide to pull the plug. If you want to reach out to me for some reason please do so in this thread. >>4426 A quick test tells me the server behind splelps.com is still online but is not hosting drawpile anymore. This could be either accidental or intentional. I do not know. Ask Loomis if you want to know more.
>>4364 Oh! Clean lines dude is back. I'm pretty sure that's not a bear. It's always a joy to see your polished drawings.

>>4400 This your first time drawing her? When I saw her in drawpile I thought she was a character you'd been playing with for a long time. Honestly she's really cute and looks really fun to draw. I'd say she's a keeper but I wouldn't know what you want to do with her.

>>4444 Yes, I think I drew her the first time last Friday. I'm not a hundred percent sure what I want to do with her, although a lot of ideas are coming to mind. The concept has already mutated into something completely different from the original plan. She is fun to draw, but the costume design definitely needs polishing and I can't really settle on how to style her face. By my count I'm now up to 117 scribbles of varying quality not counting the comic draft. Is it love?

She looked a little lonely. I don't really like how the lad looks here, something about his eyes is wrong to me, but I can't quite put my finger on what.
>>4430 Middle gent's left eye should be slightly smaller than his right due to the rules of perspective. Furthermore I think the entire face is slanted a bit to much relative to the position of his chin and crown of his head, making all of his facial features feel "off", but this is most noticeable in the eyes where the eye line is the most important cue for symmetry. Last you can almost never actually see the curvature of the human eye unless they're bulging, his left one looks like it's about to pop out of it's socket in it's current state with how curved you made it. It should probably look a touch better if you reduce the curve and size ever so slightly. It's only off a little bit, but enough to notice. Taking one last look, you have the upper eyelid so receded it looks like he doesn't have one on his left eye at all. That's also a bit distracting.

Is there anything like a circle but for the body? I can draw heads way better if I start with a circle and do kind of a modified loomis method, but for the body I just mostly guess stuff and iteratively fix it until it looks good enough. I know the beanbag method exists, but I never figured out how to use it.

Is it really that simple to defeat the worms? >certain dietary considerations can make you resistant as well Hm. I thought your diet only affects your gut bacteria which affects your brain. I did not know it also affects the worms and parasites. I will look more into this. Thanks.
>>4414 Ivermectin is the best, a Nobel Prize winning medication, but it's being suppressed; you can't get it over the counter and you can't get a prescription for it-and even if you do they won't fulfill it. You can get lesser products from Amazon but there's no assurance they weren't made as a Trojan Horse by the Wormoids (unlike IVM which is the product of a worm-free Japanese man and a worm-free White Germanic man https://www.farmersjournal.ie/irish-discoverer-of-ivermectin-jointly-wins-nobel-prize-for-medicine-191087). >Hm. I thought your diet only affects your gut bacteria which affects your brain The interdimensional/interstellar Wormoids reside in your gut including your intestines etc., they are locked into a life-long death battle with good Wormoids like L. Reuteri https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5917019/ >Due to its antimicrobial activity, L. reuteri is able to inhibit the colonization of pathogenic microbes and remodel the commensal microbiota composition in the host. Second, L. reuteri can benefit the host immune system. For instance, some L. reuteri strains can reduce the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines while promoting regulatory T cell development and function. Third, bearing the ability to strengthen the intestinal barrier, the colonization of L. reuteri may decrease the microbial translocation from the gut lumen to the tissues. Microbial translocation across the intestinal epithelium has been hypothesized as an initiator of inflammation. Therefore, inflammatory diseases, including those located in the gut as well as in remote tissues, may be ameliorated by increasing the colonization of L. reuteri. Notably, the decrease in the abundance of L. reuteri in humans in the past decades is correlated with an increase in the incidences of inflammatory diseases over the same period of time. Lactobacillus Reuteri-which is found in Greek Yogurt, Sourdough Bread, Kefir, Sauerkraut and Kimchi-is one such dietary consideration that may help resist or expel Wormoid influence, in conjunction with anti-parasitic medication.

Learning how to draw in 6 easy steps Anonymous 03/15/2021 (Mon) 17:58:18 No. 1991 [Reply] [Last]
>What is the purpose of this thread? The point of this thread is to establish for people the foundations of what is required in order to become a great artist. The people this thread is best aimed at are those so-called "experts" wanting to get back to the basics, or newcomers wanting to know how to start their journey towards becoming an artist. >Does the "six steps" mean I will become a great artists within the week? No. The purpose of the "six steps" is to establish a foundation for all art and drawing. You're not going to become an expert overnight because drawing is a skill that you need to develop over time. However, it's pointless to constantly bang your head against a wall for hours on end because that will do nothing except burn yourself out and become frustrated. To put it one way, it's a better learning process to spend 10 days sketching for an hour than spend one day sketching for 10 hours. >So, how does the "six step" process work? All you do is spend 15-60 hours everyday, drawing each successive step of the process. That's it. >What happens if I miss a day You just continue on with the next day as if nothing every happened. Spending double the time is not going to make up for the day that you lost. >What if I just don't feel like doing it one day? If you don't "feel" like it, learn to work through it because what you're doing is building a habit. If you're still having a "hard time", just get out your supplies, and set them up as if you were going to still practice. If you're still not "feeling it", perhaps drawing isn't your thing and you need to find a new hobby. >How was this process developed?

>>4013 >any good... anything on the basics of construction with shapes? i'm just learning how to do this I would start with just looking at some pictures of cartoons characters or objects you have and tracing shapes over them. Anything complex is made up of very basic shapes, the square, circle, and triangle. You'll learn about perspective as you get a handle on construction, and be able to tackle more difficult subjects. The idea is to take simple forms and turn them 3D. Once you can do that, you can twist and turn them, change these shapes to be whatever you want, and you'll be able to visualize in 3D. Form drawing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhOdCVZjdDA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uEtdDvK6Xo I would start with CtrlPaint's beginner course on traditional sketching on his website.
>>4033 Thansk for the advice, but the shapes part is what I've already done. Those animals made from shapes is where I'm at now, and it's what I'm looking for. I don't mean to sound like I think I've mastered it, or anything. But I've been shapes and perspective for months and I want to move on from it.

I just saw some people here interested in NFTs and promoting their own stuff, so here is mine: https://opensea.io/collection/pre-rolls I just started this year and plan to keep doing it for a long time. Most of them are free (plus gas charges). If you just want to share your opinion and not buying it's fine too, after all I am still learning.

Also consider that some of them include meet and greets with celebrities or limited edition products like shoes
>>3991 If you are serious about making money through nfts I suggest looking into shill packages by pro shillers. It takes at least $10k in marketing for a successful nft launch though so if you can't even afford 0.5 ETH you should forget about it.

>>3987 >It is transferring the rights to that pictures specific encoding on the block chain Usually what you actually get is a URL, which might currently point to a particular image but could at any time turn into a 404 or be silently replaced with something else. It's inherently volatile.
(253.15 KB 800x800 ETH_minerkike.png)

Nfts are purely speculations. People buy them because they expect to be able to sell them later at a higher price. For the price to rise you need to create hype which is the result of good marketing. Personally I would look at the team's marketing budget before deciding whether to invest in a particular project. I would say that $10k is the bare minimum marketing budget for the project to take off. In order to successfully launch a nft you need a relatively large initial investment and it is risky business. That being said shilling on an obscure board with 12 users is a waste of time. ETH gas fee is super high right now due to nft.
>>3987 >It is transferring the rights to that pictures specific encoding on the block chain, of which their can only be one, which makes it rare and exclusive as a digital asset. The rights of what? You don't get copyright, you don't get permission to use that image in any way. You're transferring nothing. You're transferring a receipt for a receipt associated with an image. If you wanted to buy the rights to an image you would just go buy the rights to the image. >So you're saying there's a need to generate originals for monetary purposes for digital assets? There is zero need for it. I suppose you could maybe technically do it, but it would be utterly pointless. NFTs could perhaps serve a purpose for authenticating real art. Meaning you buy a physical piece of art and are also transferred the NFT for that piece so you can cryptographically verify the authenticity or ownership of that physical thing. But there is no good faith use in doing that for an infinitely reproducible intangible thing like digital assets. Maybe if you wanted to implement some orwellian DRM crypto based bullshit that would be a bad faith use. Artificial scarcity is immoral. But as NFTs are being interacted with here and now it's just stupid.

I don't know if /loomis/ is purely digital but I just started with oil paint (i mean absolute utter shit tier novice) after sticking to dry techniques all my life. Anyone got any advice because so far its really fucking hard for me.
>>3835 If you're a super novice, but used to dry mediums, you'd probably immensely benefit from learning basic underpainting/overpainting techniques. There are a bunch of schools for how to actually underpaint and what that does, but at the end of the day >the underpaint provides a guide for the overpaint >you should never have to fight the underpaint Once you have a strong underpainting basis you can experiment with one oil painting for indefinite amount of time until it is "right".
>>3837 Honestly these obvious revelations I'm going through right now. I mean, its honestly very fun, but I feel like there is more learning than actual creating and my canvas looks like a shitpickle. Maybe My initial concept is way ahead of my skill level but I want to see it through and a learning experience.
