>>185 Are you still having this problem? Get Huion. I'm not saying it'll be a drop in replacement for BSD systems, but the solution for me was to edit xorg .conf files on Linux. Basically tell it to use the wacom driver for any tablet plugged in. Might help since BSD uses xorg. Huion route: https://www.davidrevoy.com/article331/setup-huion-giano-wh1409-tablet-on-linux-mint-18-1-ubuntu-16-04 Hopefully you see the light and drop BSD altogether. Since Xp-pen tablets also have linux drivers. Project dedicated to Linux tablet support: https://digimend.github.io/support/howto/drivers/wacom/

>>1052 > have i been chinked Depends on how long you had the tablet. But I had much worse issues with Wacom. But I guess you've been chinked the way I've been japped. Technology in general is not to be trusted.

Oh, damn an art board. I'll keep a look at this. Although my main stay is over at http://nanochanqzaytwlydykbg5nxkgyjxk3zsrctxuoxdmbx5jbh2ydyprid.onion/oc/ If you post on nanochan, you'll get an overpaint, if I see that you've put effort into the painting or drawing. Otherwise use this thread for for the clearnet normies. Do you want to know how to do anything specific in Krita? New to animation? New to painting? If you're using Photoshop or Corel Painter, you're a cuck and not allowed in this thread. Ok, let's see if this semi advertisement gets deleted.

Questions that don't deserve their own thread - Sketches Edition. Do you usually refine the figure (face, accessories, hair, drapes) when sketching or its easier to just putting a landmark then refine it later in lineart?

>>1039 >Why this place is dead? The BO seems to have moved the posters to blacked.gov, back in the day this board was moderately active but they never returned other than (probably) one of their posters who gives feedback once in a while. Only one anon has kept things alive in the practice thread for some months now, i started uploading a week ago to keep some company. >common folks prefers to post on /ic/ cancer Common folk is becoming more common than not, the massive PPH is a strong incentive but consistence quickly goes out of the window in terms of critique and such. And the ones who can withstand a more slow experience can do so but if they all are ID'd, so Shitscord ate that cake too. The upside to all of this is that the anons here can be trusted almost blindfolded due to them being ideologically stronger/more compatible for the sole fact they are here to begin with.
>>1040 That's fair I guess. I just want to avoid art school and (expensive for me) feedback from paywall artist to gain the critiques, I guess I gotta bite that cookie then.
>>1041 >I just want to avoid art school >feedback/gain the critiques If you go the route of "outsider" artist, or someone who "made up" his own style and doctrine, you can easily be identified among the rest of the people if you refine it with your own tastes enough, plus you avoid those things you mentioned. Thing is solitude is a bitch though, one can never gauge how good or unique we are going because we are used to seeing our own stuff. For that i don't know what to recommend other than bite the bullet and go hermit until you are moderately satisfied with your work... but there's one thing for sure, you'll probably double your chances of success if you can apply those drawings onto a good story/joke/conceptual narrative so scriptwriting/world-building is as crucial as having a pretty picture.
>>1041 I'll give you a proper critique on some high effort work. I'm not regularly online, but after a week, you can probably be assured you've gotten a proper critique. Being cut off from the internet for days or weeks does wonders for you productivity. ^ o ^

>>1039 Because, like in the days of olde 8ch, 80% of every board's users are lurkers. Porn boards and dump boards can live like that, but in places like this that require active participation, there's not much point without an active userbase. Also what >>1039 said, the BO moved operations. I don't really get what the point of that was, but if there was more community support here, I'd prefer this one. I suppose he thought people would be more comfortable using markchan. At least neither one is /ic/. t. lurker of both

So... what made you get into drawing?
9 posts and 2 images omitted.
Always liked to draw as a kid. As i grew up i developed a dream/ambition to become a great artist, but later my motivation devolved to just wanting to impress some chick that frequented the same drawing studio, in the end my superior drawing skills didn't help me woo her, because i was a coward at heart, but i did get a love letter from some other chick that i didn't care about. Eventually my romantic interest moved to another country, i quit art and started wasting my time on imageboards, and doing drugs. After a wasted decade i got bored from being a degenerate and became a somewhat productive normie, now all that's left from my artistic past is this bump on my middle finger from holding the pencil.

I personally always used to doodle on the border of the notebook and always wanted to get into an arts career, but knowing that I would end up with no job with that I decided to get into STEM. I ended up going nowhere for four years and this quarantine finally made me get into it. Now the issue will be not throwing the towel.
Wanting to get a hobby, although I dont spend too much time since I prefer writing for the moment. And also wanting to learn the ability to draw anime
to draw my nice dreams, nightmares and my ancestor guardian that has been passed down to me, protecting me from a personification of dark entity sent by envious people to ruin our life by the service of a witch. you can see him and her(the devil) if you're my boyfriend when you sleep.
to share my stories and make my ideas come to life

Forced labor drawings, improvised a bit but i missed several line thicknesses and forgot to align heights at times. The journey continues even when i formally haven't started with the books.

Hey guys, /icup/ here with a question on how we're going to handle the next iteration of the Infinity Cup ( https://anon.cafe/icup/ ) We're trying to poll whether certain boards are interested in playing in the cup, or if there's some specific team that you'd like to see play. If you want to, please answer or add your own answer to the poll in https://poal.me/6x3j1u

Infinity Cup 6 is now complete! Congratulations to /fascist/ who join the ranks of champions as they defeated /bane/ 2-1 in the Final! In an unprecedented turn of events, the Golden Boot will be shared by not 2, but 3 players: Alfred Legosen (/lego/), Ammit (/monster/), and Cuckquean-tan (/cuckquean/). Each player scored 6 goals officially through the Cup, fitting, giving it was the 6th edition. Thank you to every anon who chipped in throughout the Cup, and thank you especially to all the anons who took the time to tune in. We'll see you for ICUP 7!
Open file (99.08 KB 1038x1038 GCupLogo1038.png)
Hello /loomis/, I arrive at your humble board to officially announce the GCUP! The GCUP will be an exhibition tournament between boards of the webring that represent nations of the world, and will be contested under usual ICUP rules. In addition, we'll also be hosting friendlies for non-national boards/teams as part of the festivites. Friendlies can be played under normal rules, or, if you choose, under alternate (meme) rulesets that will be decided closer to the Cup's kickoff. If you would like to participate, head on over to the pinned thread at our board on Cafe. The event is set to begin February 13th, 2021. Look forward to having you there!
