Testing Krita export color bug workaround...
No. 28970 ID: d9d503
So apparently to get the color to not mess up when exporting from Krita I need to save as a BMP than save the BMP as a PNG to upload it. If anyone knows a better way to do this it would be appreiated.

No update today (to wait for more comments), so posting some (still horribly novice) drawings. Today's post: what I have been playing far too much today.

(As a side note, the ignorant, stabbing-obsessed, ambush plotting and shiny loving personality of the Starbound plant people is hilarious and the perfect distillation of how a standard open world rpg protagonist actually behaves in practice.)

Writing/drawing always takes longer than I think it will, but making multiple npcs is more so. Here is one of them: Ago Kazasmustu. She is a gobin ex-immortal who uses stillness magic to straighten monofilament wire into a sword and make force armor (and a seperate force armor spell on the shield to soak up anti-spell attacks).
Now that character creation is done writing will also take longer and I am not sure what my update rate will be like, but I am hoping I can have either an update or something posted here every day.

Red Clerics. A bit like paladins, except dedicated entirely to hunting monsters and demons, and instead of light or healing magic they have things like fireballs and eye beams. They are almost all dwarves, but there is that one elf in the local chapter who joined because HIS PARENTS ARE DEEEAD by demonspawn.

Today's drawing: More concept art for my quest that almost nobody reads.
This is a Steppe Elf Titan, the combined Creation magic of several elves coordinated to conjure and fuel basically a cross between Jagers from Pacific Rim and Titans from Attack on Titan. This sort of thing combined with a recent history like a more genocidal Mongol Horde has resulted with Steppe Elves being by far the most hated and feared people in my setting (even more so among non-dwarves than actual demons).

Fortunately for our protagonist, these guys probably won't be appearing for a while in the quest.

So today I spent a third of the day designing a fancy weapon and glove that (unless I change my drawing style signifigantly) will be too small for any of the details to be visible when it shows up in the actual quest.

This is a redesign of the Goblin lineblade, with accompanying glove. The signature weapon of the Goblin Immortals elite infantry, the lineblade is a spool of razor wire that with a specific Stillness spell can be straightened out and reinforced into an incredibly thin and lightyet durable and inflexible sword-like weapon. The lineblade is primarily a thrusting weapon (able to pierce even metal plating) but has significant slashing ability as well against less armored foes, sort of like a supernaturally sharp cross between a rapier and a katar. It is not a very good weapon for parrying, but the Immortals who use it rely instead on a shield and protective magic for defense. The blade can be set to varying lengths and the spool is spring-loaded to quickly retract when the blade is inactive, but adjusting the blade length takes a re-casting of the blade spell. The glove typically worn with the lineblade has overlapping metal plates on the fingers to serve sort of like a crossguard, but it is otherwise unarmored. (I originally designed a proper gauntlet for it, but after drawing that I figured that the Goblins don't have enough knowledge of plate armor to make a full gauntlet due to their use of magic instead of heavy armor.)

Biochem. We will be getting to Glycolosis later I think, so I will draw it then.
And while I was planning to update today (or yesterday... this sleep cycle), I instead ended up re-reading Kill Six Billion Demons until ~3 AM and then working on homework until ~7 AM. I don't actually feel that bad now but from when I wake up at 11 AM onward it is probably going to be a rough day.

Here's another drawing as I try to get back into the habit of art.
Pictured is a goblin immortal with mask and re-designed version of the shield and Lineblade. They manage to use a fighting style similar to fencing with such a large shield because only the center is particularly solid; the rest is lightweight wire mesh that only has any defensive use when a force field is applied to it. The mail and mask are a similar mesh material that is very lightweight but relies on magical reinforcement for most of its defensive ability. The reason the immortals even use a shield with a force field when they already have force field based armor is that the armor field can only protect so much while being flexible and the shield can also block spells that might disrupt their main force field. The handle on the side of the shield is there to be grabbed with the Lineblade hand to put force from both hands behind an attack.

I have finally gotten around to working on the update but it is taking longer than I thought. Probably largely because of the two new party members with gear and spells I need to finalize for it. Equipment to redesign, spell casting systems to tweak, that sort of thing.
No. 29274 ID: 502e6f
I really should be updating, but I spent too much time playing a game (Reassembly) where you can design and fly a giant nuke-slinging space buzzsaw. So now it is late and I need to go to sleep soon because I will be dissecting a pig's heart tomorrow morning.

Posting here to say that I haven't given up on Word Witch, but the semester started at grad school and I have been very busy (and also lazy) so I might not be able to continue it until the semester ends or I get better at not procrastinating.
Here is a thing I did for a class project:
No. 31617 ID: b9aa79
Just FYI word witch as at the bottom of the sixth page of quests. I don't know how long mods keep them before sending them to the graveyard but with what, six more weeks left in the semester? It might be worth reaching out to one of them and asking them not to do away with it

Really I'm thinking that instead of messaging the mods now to get it graveyard delayed I will message them when I am ready to update again to have it de-graveyarded. The result should be the same, right?

Been busy with grad school, but I do have stated using this as a drawing prompt:

(Via http://lewisandquark.tumblr.com/post/160014619217/story-titles-invented-by-neural-network):
So Prof. Mark Reidl of Georgia Tech is the best kind of geek, and used some cool scripting to extract all the things on Wikipedia with plot summaries: movies, books, tv episodes, video games, etc. That’s a lot of plot summaries: 112,936, to be exact.

With a dataset this large, a neural network can achieve impressive results. Sure enough, when I trained this open-source neural network framework on just the titles alone, it consistently came up with titles that were both varied and (usually) plausible.

Below are some of my favorites, arranged roughly by apparent genre:


Titanic Buffalo
Pirates: A Fight Dance Story
The Bad Legend
Conan the Pirate
O Bullets
Home Transformers
Shurk Hat Dies!
An Enemy of Bob (Homicide: Life on the Street)
Cannibal Spy II
American Hero: Fire of Crusty
Lego Man Hunt
Nancy Drew: The Last Day (film)
Surf Crisis
Legend of the Experience of Scarlet Freedom Damageboo
American Midnight: Swear Dragon


Under the Daleks
Batman and Flancles: The Fun Tree
The Legends of World Planet
Bomberman’s Love
The Enchanted Feed
The Star Wars: The Santa Contact
The Long Ninja Dove in the Air (film)
The History of the Galaxy Bunny Lada
City of the Stupid (film)
Shy Castle
Hamburger (Star Trek: The Next Generation)
Swords and Batman: Summer Party ?


The Boordeeple (2011 film)
A Dog’s Toy Friends
Boop (Adventure Time)
A Dinosaur Quest
Colonel Corn (video game)
New Bear
Borky the Pig (film)
Excellent Very Broken Christmas
The Great Bother Cat (film)
Happy Cat in the Yaku Wonder
Fireman and Halloween Rules
Big Can Flower Home
The Green Yaurglar Pig
Scooby-Doo'Wagon Traps (video game)
Book Dog (film)


Terror Dog
Tree Screaming
Zombies of Florence
The Trunkelling
A Vampire Time for Monster
Murder’s Eagle
Frozen Bat (film)
Haunted Place
The Sheep of Evil
Barney’s The Devil’s Treachery
Merry Scroobers: Crown of Evil
The Steel-Pounted Murder King
The Shadow of Life of Very Worgy (film)
The Mystical Booged of California


Market that Knave
Spork at Bliss
The White Soup
An Indiana Office
The Last Fish Show
The Fish of Education

Restricted section (there were quite a few more of these)

Absilloved Lovers 2: Black Bearfly Dawn
Horse Man Academy 5-R: Cowboy Sheeper Wydex
Breed Bot 3: The Journey Kitchen
Wild Bad Party 109
Pink Moon
Indiscreet Maidman

And finally, a list of the most quintessential story titles, obtained by setting the creativity to near zero on a highly-trained network:

The Story of the Stranger (1994 film)
The Last Day of the Story
The Lost Princess (film)
The Stranger (1994 film)
The Last Star (1994 film)
The Secret of the Story of the Stranger (1996 film)
