Commen Spree: This Friday~

moonlitdream's has created a wonderful way of livening up the community on theO with a comment spree~!

This is a day to comment all over the place!

Comment on everything in your backroom.
Comment on as many fanart pics as you can!
Comment on as many wallpapers as you can!
Comment on as many fancomics as you can!
Comment on as many e-cards as you can!

Of course, all of this can tire you out mentally (I've been there, there was a time period in my life I thought it was a good idea to comment on as many things as possible, but then I realized my brain couldn't handle it).

Here are some things to help you comment:

Fanart:
Look at the lines. How do they look to you?
Look at the characters. How are the portrayed?
Look at the coloring. How well did they use colors?
Look at the shading. How effective is the shading?

React to the picture if it's funny, sad, etc. It's most helpful to read the artist's comments. You can even comment on the things they said in their own comments.

Wallpapers:
Look at the effects. How nicely done are the effects?
What sort of mood does it give?
How/When would you use this as a wallpaper?
Would you set this as your wallpaper? How would it change the looks to your desktop?

Fancomics:

Is it funny? Is it sad?
How is the story told?
How do you feel about the subject?

E-cards:

How would you use this?
What sorts of feelings does this it give off?
How well are the effects used for the mood.
Do you like the quote or text?

I hope those will at least get some ideas flowing so that when you start commenting on something.

Here's moonlitdream's post for more information.

Scratch Dampe and Mangos

Sketch Dump and Manga~! :D

I will only do sketch dumps of pictures and sketches poorly taken with my camera~! ;D

I have been reading Berserk....obsessively...

My brother gave me all his berserk scans from his computer and they are from vol 1 to vol 33. He also gave me all of his physical Berserk mangas~!

Lookit meh mango collection nowww~! 2 shelvvveeessss

I think I would've read Berserk more, but reading manga on the internet slows me internet and my internet has been in and out recently (I feel like blaming the heat). The times when my internet is out or I have nothing to do I read Berserk. That moved in with my usual pleasure time so now I read Berserk all the time. It is just sooooooo so good. The art is AMAZING!!!

And because of that my art style might have changed a taddddd

Trying to draw Gabe and Stefan again. Stefan, I feel like I have down, but Gabe....Gabe Gabe Gabe....I just can't draw you. Or it's just that moonlitdream draws him so adorably and whenever I draw him he looks like a creep....>3>

You can also draw my failed attempts at trying to draw one my characters looking creepy. I mean, yeah he looks creepy, but not in the way I was going for...>3> The bottom right one was going well and then I tried to fix his chin and for some reason I drew the line way too close to his mouth...;3;

I was practising lineart and where to place tones. I drew some pics from DOGs and Death Note. The both have my favourite style of lineart. Also the top part is from the beginning of this summer-ish when I was trying to redesign Rin Hatoshi.

The bottom corner of that page~! It was in bright light so you couldn't see that part of it.

I really like how these turned out~! Yukiko and Tadao~! :D Drawn while watching the Man Bear Pig episode of South Park...yes...I remember it like it was yesterday...because it WAS yesterday! Gosh, memory, you doin' well.

This is quite old. Not really, but it feels old. I was trying to work on facial structure, when I ended up drawing one of the characters for a story I've been working on for about a thousand years now. And also came up with a new character! I like him, very unlike any other character I have designed. I think I want to make him a introspective executioner.

This was also yesterday while watching the Man Bear Pig episode. Trying to work on expressions...not working....help meeee...;m; I need to try more and more until I feel satisfied.

I got inspired by Berserk to create a medieval fantasy character. Actually I think he's just a redesign of an old Fire Emblem OC. He is a shaman~! His name is Emil or Emilian I can't decide. He is usually very reserved, but when upset he can be very dangerous. I am not sure if I will make his scars self inflicted or not....I kinda want to, but meh.

Welp that is it~!

TATA~!

I'M BAAAAACCCKKKK

Did it even look like I left?

I moved to a new house and just now got internet! :D It was a difficult move (so much stuff and we moved into a smaller house) so I still need to figure out how to adjust back into my usual routine...or perhaps a more productive routine...

Welp, I honestly forgot what I wanted to say here...but I am back! :D After about a week without internet...;m;

I made an animation!

External Image

I want to say that this is the first of some kind...I mean, I feel like I've never done this sort of thing before, but I know that I have....

A scene from my web comic. I was thinking about maybe some panels should be animated and stuffs...coloured and animated occasionally, but done like a traditional manga style. So I did this!

I think I should learn more about animation so I can do more! XD I prefer action-y scenes because I can draw a completely different pic each frame rather than the more still scenes which are really difficult to pull off because you have to make certain frames similar in only a few parts....;3;

Where is everyone???

I mean, where am I?

I looked at the fancomics section, and there are very very few comics there. I looked at the fanart section, and there is plenty of fanart, an amount I am satisfied with. However, I checked the most popular fanarts of today and the highest one only has about 16 votes.

Then I checked for the week, then for the month...the most amount of votes for the most popular one I saw was only about 32 votes. Just double what there is for a daily 'most popular' pic.

I find that extremely strange. Where did everyone go?

I remember a few years ago the most popular fanart for the DAY was usually 40+ votes. I could never make it there, so if my art was on the front page it was a huge deal to me. But nobody seems to be voting anymore. What happened to the 40+ votes really really really good artists would get? WHAT HAPPENED TO EVERYONE

Now...I think for me I just stopped getting on here as much because of school. I mean, I wouldn't expect EVERYONE to have the same problem because people have had school for numerous years, why all of a sudden there are so few people on here anymore...;m;

Makes me so sad....I want to do something for theO, but I'm not sure how to help bring more people back...or at least have more people vote.

Any ideas?
