sun's so bright and hot feel like im gonna melt


accidentally overbrewed tea and let it get cold


ate a banana (ice cream)


thunderstormed today and the temperature dropped 20 degrees
pretty nice


Boiling heat
Summer stench
'Neath the black
The sky looks dead
Call my name
Through the cream
And I'll hear you
Scream again
Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun


mowed lawn today, had to take breaks because I really think heat exhaustion might have got me otherwise
humans are not evolved for this environment


drank too much and the world is spinning

Saw my grandma, said goodbye to her, she's dying of cancer, it spread everywhere (tumors in her lungs and brains at this point, I don't have the exact details I apologize). She's going to heaven I know that but it just hurts watching her and I'm going to miss her.

practicing drawing on thinkpad


Taking requests?


no its just me doing rakugaki to improve my skill
i only started drawing for less a month and i don't have any skill to do requests


I respect that, I don't have the patients for drawing. I can do writing no problem.


Less than a month? Wow! You're very talented.


File:ZZD 018.png (296.49 KB,2048x1536)

That's good for a month. It took me probably 2-3 months to get this far and then I gave up.


i don't think i'm talented since i virtually drew nothing in my whole childhood and i didn't do any assignments for drawing classes
i just watched some videos hoping that i won't take detour on fruitless practicing methods, like one video telling the 4 principles of doing rakugaki:
- use less strokes
- use intersecting strokes to represent object features
- don't use eraser
- don't draw outline alone; always fill inside while drawing


>i don't think i'm talented since i virtually drew nothing in my whole childhood
No. That's exactly what makes the talent apparent. Talent is about picking things up fast like you do.


otouto is on a bible tirade…


It's good to believe in something, but it's still important to think for one's self instead of uncritically accepting dogma. Hopefully they at least take away the good parts, rather than focusing on the rather odious aspects like stoning children to death for disrespecting their parents, or hating black people because they bear "the mark of Cain."


Both are very good for this early on drawing. I encourage you to keep at it.
Your skills will not be defined by where your starting point is, or how smooth your first month go by, but by how much you keep looking at your work, correcting it, and progressing> being able to not put it off, keep working at it, and figure it out until you have something that you like looking at (and then trying to figure out why you like that) is what will drive you to greatness.
While these could be good personal methods, they are not rudament, and they aren't for everyone, especially not the last two.
Honestly I never got the "don't use the eraser" idea. If Murata uses erasers they are good enough for me. I think it's more important to work at something until you like it than practice that your first stroke would be the final one.
You can draw doing none of those, the main idea of drawing is the representation of 3d space and objects on a 2d plane.
As for avoiding fruitless practice, the best practice is to draw what you love, and to try and draw it well. nothing beats that.


It's good to have family members with some kind of morals.

I hate OCD… I deleted the .minecraft folder from my roaming data folder because it kept setting off my anti virus and I don't even have the game any more and then I worried that it might have some other affect because of said OCD even though it's nonsense and of course it wouldn't so I did an internet search and found a page that said 'On the Roaming folder, there are files which supplement other apps, like Minecraft’s launcher data.' Which just set me off even more and now I have this delusional fear in my head that Firefox needed that folder to download images even though of course there are nothing but delusions to support this and now every time I download an anime girl image it's going to be slightly corrupted but only slightly so it will be hard to see and I will think it will be fine but it will not be… People with OCD often also have Schizophrenia, it's easy to see why.


try to get it into your head that the only deleting Roaming folders with an associated filename will have any effect on the application and its functions
it's how it actually works too so as long as you can get that stuck in your head hopefully it'll be ifne


so tired think im gonna nap

Family had a graduation party for my sister today. I drank a lot. Been watching symphogear. My jp is going really well, I'm planning on taking N2 this winter
Less than a month? That's amazing. It looks super cute
Slow days are a treat


File:Untitled.png (125.7 KB,954x728)

Lately I've started to tend to draw a bunch of 1 minute hands as a "warmup" but then I proceed to do nothing because I get tired.

Feelin that good ol' existential dread.
Make it stop. Make it stop. Make it stop!!!


growing tired of rts


>Honestly I never got the "don't use the eraser" idea.
well it was said that the most apparent benefit from that was to improve drawing speed, also let you use some tools for drawing that can't be erased
i think undo is a better way of erasing anyway

>the main idea of drawing is the representation of 3d space and objects on a 2d plane.

lots of people practice a lot but don't get much improvement because they don't have this in mind, and it is even easier to be ignored for 2d drawings
also another important part is taste which can only be developed by observing artworks in large variety and quantity, only then one has self awareness and can figure out how and where to improve


Okay, thanks.


I was browsing the front page of some 4chan board, and I just saw a bunch threads in 4chan without replies next to each other. It gave me such a strange feeling of nostalgia.

played this for the first time yesterday, it's pretty neat
funnily enough you actually need to learn how to 'play' it properly for best results


logged into mabinogi! lol!


cat woke me up…


How do you play it properly, I just treat it like I'm writing a balls to the wall adventure in all honesty.


Got a bit of a headache. I think it might be because I inadvertently inhaled some gasoline fumes while screwing around with one of those nefangled gas cans. Safer my ass.


You mean the ones that don't have a vent? It's supposed to prevent spillage or something. I bet the people who wrote that legislation never used a gas can in their lives.


Post cat. Mine likes hanging around me for scratches. I love her

That's not what would have happened to the egg


The egg portion looks fine. I think it's that the cheese melted down into the space and spilled out or something.


it's obviously yolk

sigh, now I want to make an omlette


I think it's plausible but it's hard to time it right. I'm not sure if starting to cook the egg before flipping the patty is a good idea

This is my second attempt with AI dungeon and I don't know how to use much more than the basic commands so it probably sucks. I decided to toy with it today for the first time and summoned Jeanne in a Holy Grail War.
