So this is a THING I'm working on and it's still in an pretty early WIP stage. I'm not reaaaaaaally sure what do clothing-wise so it's still all pretty basic. ... more
RamenFenrir: They have a smaller item-drop increase but it's not worth $100+ for a 2x familiar (unless you can afford it, I guess)
RamenFenrir: Easier to find? Nah, you can't find it - they only come from the NX Familiar packs, but they're not really necessary.
RamenFenrir: Thanks for the kind words Syrup ~ They'll keep coming as long as the ideas keep coming !!
syrup: Oh man, RF, sorry to gush, but you are getting so good at these. It's really fun to read. I like the background textures you'
HawtNoodle: I always imagine the boss holding a big piece of beef and drenched in gravy. Anyway I love the dark souls vibes this artwork
Aw hell yeah, the hotties are finally here, dood. And uhh, Corrin too. I wasn't able to find the Player 2 version of these characters yet. This was the first time buying amiibo again this year, so the collection barely progressed. ... more
syrup: Haha... your excitement is palpable. Do you just collect or open / use too?
Kaneki: i wnt all 3 of them,,
syrup: Oh man, RF, sorry to gush, but you are getting so good at these. It's really fun to read. I like the background textures you're using too=, like in the soul shard frame, that yellowish bit. And it's fun to see the use of in-game items floating around or the "10 soul shards". I hope you continue these!! :D
makiyumi: Wow you didn't even have wolf familiar outwhat a noob
in terms of making art or somethin related to it, is it bad to be reaching more towards compliments than criticism?? i personally don't like criticism because i already know that whatever i do it won't be 'perfect' or up to someone's standards/expectations. i know that at some points in life i'll need the criticism to improve, but honestly if i ONLY get criticism i'd feel less motivated to do whatever i want to do?? i talked to someone about this before and they said that criticism is a necessity. but is it really?? i'm not looking to become the greatest artist of all kind or whatever, so does it still apply to me?? is it wrong to strive for praise????? i need to know ... more
makiyumi: Praise craving isn't a bad thing at all, but it isn't a good thing to always have when sugar coating is obvious or not. What I find more offensive than blind criticism is sugar coating when it's highly obvious you know you're not improving.. Constant praise for non-quality effort leads to arrogance, and just the really bad and nasty sides of a human.. If you don't notice these behaviors soon, you'll sooner realize it, and it'll hit you, hard.Try thinking in a different mindsetI, for one, want to strive for greatness, not for praise, but for having a colorful portfolio to show my recruiter when I want to become an independent animator one day when i'm older.Every one thinks differently, I know, it isn't much of a confusing subject either. There's a reason why you get praised that much, and that's because of the efforts you put into your work and originality. Keep practicing dude, Rome wasn't built in a day y'know.
Gengar: I think the biggest problem with criticism is that people misuse what it actually is. People treat it as a way to attack someone when in reality it's just "hey this was great but I also think you should work better on this" not "hey this clearly looks like x or this is obviously your first art piece". REAL criticism shouldn't make you feel like dirt, and if it does, they aren't doing it right.
Kaneki: now i'm curious. will you be making them into actual stickers??? that'd be pretty neat
MizuiChan: I kind of want to hug the Scottsman, he looks so LOL xD
syrup: Does it cool down at night at least? Curious to see end result! :)
privateereck: Californians eh? That heavy heatwave pretty much kept my room above 90 the whole day. I don't have access to an AC
syrup: Stickers meaning what exactly (sry, idk)?
HawtNoodle: For those interested, you can view the finished sketches here: https://68.media.tumblr.com/f3388ba06fa76c52f6c86982970b183c/tumblr_ossll2CxH21utst5bo1_r4_1280.png
Kaneki: powerful fists
FriedClams: Congratulations! Celebrate with a spinach and goat cheese salad with a balsamic vinaigrette!
syrup: cool! More art from you plox
Kaneki: wherever she got those skull pins, i need to get them too,,
MizuiChan: Oooo! Really cute! xD
Progress on the illustrations for my story ~ Gonna be out of town and busy with college summer classes, so I'm not sure when I can get back to making progress on the story, ... more
HawtNoodle: I like the texture you put over it, it makes it feel more antique vibe.
RamenFenrir: @HawtNoodle Yeah I like putting the manga texture over things for some reason; makes it feel finished (?)
I've tollerated my Iphone 5s for about a year now, but now I'm at the point where I'd gladly throw it against a brick wall. ... more
syrup: Have you tried Google Play? I'm with you - itunes SUCKS. I find google play to be quite usable. That said, I loved my Android until I got too good of a deal on an iphone SE to pass up. :/ Would prefer to be on Android. Curious to hear what you end up with.
random87: @syrup I've tried a few of the other methods of getting music on your phone, but I want a rather large number of songs on my phone, so most of them aren't ideal in that situation.Having said that, I haven't tried Google Play yet, so I might give it a try.I'll probably end up still using my Iphone, once every few months when I try to get new music on there I hate it, but the other 360 days of the year it all works fine.I might reset everything, see if that works, if so my Iphone lives to get smashed some other day.Buying a new one seems a bit dramatic, and I really don't want another phone.Mainly because of the size of the Iphone, I don't want to carry around a large phone.I don't spend much time one the internet, don't play mobile games, so bigger is only an inconvenience.Obviously there are smaller phones that run Android, but I feel like most of the time they're the "budget range", and I don't want a cheap piece of plastic either.
syrup: You got it! Can't wait to see / read more. Great start! Keep that momentum going.
RamenFenrir: @Kaneki It's ketchup - the driving force behind the entire story !! ( yes it's blood :^) )
HawtNoodle: @Kaneki: If you where to zoom in on the original drawig you would see that the lines are a complete mess, they're anything but smooth haha :)
Kaneki: they are much, much smoother than my sketches, i can assure you :^)
Just kidding - here's the finished version. Someone said "it's too dark" and it offended me so I changed it a bit. u_u" ... more
RamenFenrir: @Kaneki I make up everyone's recommended daily dose of dark edgelord edginess darkness
Raginroxas: Dem colors! It looks lovely. Love the manga filter.
syrup: Shit, that's great coloring! I love the texture on the misty (?) green area, it almost looks like velcro or something. Dark side.
RamenFenrir: @syrup yeah I like the texture a lot - it's just an overlay of the generic manga texture for clothing
captain: @beefly: nah (unless it's racist/hateful), let it rip!
Beefly: @captainKick ass!... ?
syrup: Hey that was fun!
Kaneki: if you ever got the word "hedgehog" and went through other people's artwork, i hope you saw the sonic ones. i think maybe 2 was by me
