So I was waiting for my computer to get fixed and my files retrieved and all that, when I thought, "Well, I got a tablet and some Photoshop right here, why don't I draw something as a warm-up in the meantime?"

Then I thought about how all the cool kids have their avatars and personas and all that, so I tried making some and, and, I--

And then I was a draw thread

Oh PS you guys seem to love dat pixely look, is there a way to apply some photoshop filters and create the same effect as if you drew it with the pencil tool? Or do I just gotta draw it all with the pencil tool? One thing I discovered is if you convert an image to a brush (after using some levels to correct the lightness and darkness of things, as well as desaturating the image, otherwise when you turn it into a brush you might not like what you see) and then use it in the pencil tool I can pretty much get this effect. What I was asking, though, if there's an easier way to do this.

All you have to do is save it with only the exact colours you're using to get rid of that anti-aliasing garbage putting in-between colours on the edges of your lines to make them look smooth.

If you're using black and white just convert it to 1-bit colour so there's only black and white. If you use more than that you can convert it to an indexed image with only the exact colours you need (or limited to a the number of colours that gets rid of the anti-aliasing but still keeps all the colours you want, just don't expect it to work miracles if your drawing isn't made out of limited or solid colours). For example I indexed your image to the three colours it uses; black, white and blue.

Avoid jpg if you want clean pixely images. You need something non-lossy to keep the exact pixels and also something that can support indexing (PNG or GIF). Though there's nothing stopping you from converting it to an indexed image just to fix the edges. Then once you have it how you want it to look, put it back to standard colours and save it however you want. But that would just be silly.

I just realized my example wrecked your grays. It's a good example that this technique doesn't work well with, and the whole point of it is to pretty much get rid of, grays or other in-between colours.

>sellotape to hold spectacles on snake
Nice touch.

For pure black/white monochrome, you may find that your art tool allows you to set a variable threshold to decide just how grey a pixel has to be to count as black. In GIMP (ugh) it's under Colour -> Threshold and will do a live preview as you fiddle with the slider---I'll be amazed if Potatosoap doesn't have something comparable.

To be honest, though, I don't think it suits your artstyle at all.

There is no reason to aftereffect your arts into a binary tool (pencil tool). I use it because I'm lazy and it's harder to see mistakes :V

Well thank you very much, I'm glad you took the time to tell me that :'> Though I still wonder how a quest about a weird guy stumbling around a weird neighborhood that looks weird ends up with any fans, haha.
Stylistically speaking, it can be occasionally interesting to look at, in my silly opinion. It's the middle ground between pixel art and traditional-looking art, and that alone intrigues me.

That being said, thanks for the kind words, I really do appreciate it! I keep being happily surprised people are liking my stuff so much, ahah...

So, I wanna draw more stuff, but I won't get to my legit computer until Wednesday or Thursday, so I'll see.

Thank you! Ah, I've never actually used Corel Painter before, so I don't even know if it has brushes, but the way I do it is I create multiple layers and, using the grunge/texture brushes I downloaded beforehand (I hate to recommend deviantart for anything but I gotta admit, some of their brush collections are really good. Just search "_____ [program] brush"; in the _____ slot put "grunge" or "texture" or something, in the program slot put the program you're using. I probably searched for "paint splatter photoshop brush" (or brushes?) when I got these. I know there are sites specifically dedicated to brushes but I dunno which ones are the best, try just googling "[program] brushes"), I pile them onto layers in the background.

(Pssst, I do pretty much this exact same thing for Mannyventure. As soon as I figured out I could get a "nice"-looking background by just slapping a bunch of brushes onto some layers, I downloaded as many brushes as I could find.)

I did the bird guy almost as an obligation, he seems like such a side-character. I think I only keep him around because otherwise I'd take out my wing and flying obsession on my characters by sticking wings everywhere. Anyway, it turned out pretty nice except for its oblong-ness; another logo aspect important to me is how square the logo is. A square or circle shape makes it more adaptable to more environments, etc etc

Anyway, now that I've made these, I might as well do something with them. I definitely know that I'm going to use the lizard for my livestream icon. Maybe I can use the snake as the header or base for the OP of a /questdis/ thread, if it ends up being necessary (or if someone makes it before I do, which is also likely because I am just lazy, no two ways about it). The ghost could be a watermark or something, if I decide I'm enough of an asshole to use one, or a quick "signature stamp" (very likely). I have no ideas for the bird, but it could see some use eventually.

Ah...now that I look at it...it kinda reminds me of Corbin Busker.

So, I was trying to explain the cisdudes to myself, even though this only sort of partially gets at the roles I think they're starting to become. Keep in mind I didn't exactly make them with this in mind, this is a recent-ish thing that manifested, I guess.

Also, I figured out what to do with the bird, but it's really cheesy and stupid and tacky and very, very furry. But I'm gonna save that for later.

I do love them skittles 'n' Socrates. And hey, who are you calling a furry? (Though, indeed, the bird guy has been /merged with/ the "actual" guy. The "actual" guy can turn into the bird guy and back and anywhere in between and yeah it sorta misses the point of the "actual" guy and is very cheesy and tacky and furry [breath] but does play into what I'll explain below.)
Sorry mate, it's all about the (chiefly initial) impressions you get of people and how they can be distorted by the way they're presented to you.

To add more to the confusion: I think the bird represents an abstract-idea version of a sentience, like the characters themselves (or pretty much any fursona ever). So I guess the bird is pretty fucking meta!

Anyway, this is all why I find furries pretty interesting--when you get down to it, they've created this weird version of identity, and I tried digging further and came up with all this overthought hipster-shit.

Thanks man, the top is what I have now and the bottom is what I'm planning to get soon.
I know what you mean, and it took me a long, long time to get past a bunch of that, but eventually I did start looking past the silliness and hair-raising revoltingness and finding a lot of cool stuff. I like to think of furries as "character design in three dimensions", because usually people just make characters who are simply variations on humans, and humans are really only an incredibly tiny part of the potential for awesome characters. Furries have learned to open their designs up and out of this tight format, and that's pretty cool of them!

Aaaanyway. It's getting closer to Halloween so I'm starting to focus on the ghost-mummy-Dangeresque-Slendermanesque-thing a bit more. I finally found a good variant on the logo I like, too--it feels a lot more balanced to me than the last one.

I was thinking of making the ghost mummy thing a species/race/whatever, I'm starting to get ideas for other of its kind. (Or maybe they're just a few, but eh, either way)

(Here on out I pretty much let my mind run and run and run haha)

So I was thinking about the implications of "you can't hear it unless you have a special receptor or person or etc", because that means there should be some sound or something, and I can't think of what the ghost(s?) could possibly make. I do like the idea of taking "hear" non-literally, though, where the ghost(s?) can send out very specific feelings to these receptive people and things, and the vibes are so precise that they can actually convey simple meaning, like "I don't know" and "Do you like the color red?" (I imagine it's using a system consisting of components--like " 'you'; 'like'; 'red'; [question indicator]"--which all have feelings and mixing them into that simple sentence.)

If by some odd chance you wanna make a character thing that fits into this race/species, that'd be really cool and I'd like to see it! Just keep in mind I'm still developing these weird things, plus there /are/ "rules" (characteristics and components) to them; one of them who has full tangibility (plus the ability to be intangible at will) AND the ability to speak is akin to a bird that births live young and can breathe underwater. Some of these characteristics are: a single, secondary "theme" color (in my thing's example it's cyan); at least partially humanoid shape; sharp teeth (it's not like they need to eat, but they can consume vagrant life force, as it is enjoyable and tastes good) and claws (the latter on both the hands and feet); bandages that, if removed, can "kill" the thing; have "ties" somewhere akin to shoelaces that can also "kill" the thing if untied; they seem enveloped in a slightly light-distorting and darkening "aura", similar to how heat-distorted light looks; aaand their eyes are more or less just odd holes with a faint white light radiating from the inside. They are all essentially genderless and don't/can't have sex, but they can identify with "he" or "she" or something else.

...Uhh...I need to think of a name for these things. Ahahah
No. 7749 ID: 3a3661
So thanks to a brainstorming session in IRC, SoqWizard has gifted the species with a name: the "Laced" (both singular and plural form). Toastline and Overlord also helped to think of ideas, but maybe I'm biased because "laced" (ex. "laced with poison") has always had creepy-in-an-awesome-way connotations for me, so I saw it as extra fitting, heh. (That is, in addition to their odd death-strings.)

It seems to have had reverse karma as my throat is now mysteriously sore. This does not bode well.

I'm very glad you liked it, though :> Feel better, man.

So about that weird alien thing--I came up wish a shitton of ideas recently, so sit down and bring some snacks if you would like to hear.

I'm pretty sure I'm making it a species at this point, because my idea is that they're a mass of beings that managed to fully colonize and "perfect" their universe. Satisfied, they're now moving onto other universes (so I guess they're 9th dimensional beings, if they're going from one completely different universe to another?), hoping to either colonize and enlighten the inhabitants, or let them be if they do not wish to change their ways (mostly out of fear). Since they come from an entirely different universe, they are composed of something that is almost not affected by gravity (save for their feet, which are a very dense version of the substance and act like lightweight "anchors"). I haven't yet figured out if it's because the substance (or the light-rings/cores) directly cancels out gravity or if the substance is simply so light that even significant gravitational forces do not affect them much. So far, I've been going with the latter, but I suppose the former would allow for some cool black hole-related stuff--event horizons acting even weirder and whatnot.

About the light-rings/cores: they have four of these things (head; chest/torso; one on each "hand"), the main purpose of which deals with electrons and magnetism (or a variant on it). To move about, they use their already light weight to their advantage by propelling themselves to and fro with streams of electrons firing from the glowing circle things, though they can also fire small bits of matter (themselves) in a pinch (usually in outer space, though even then they can't move very fast or far). And about the substance they're made out of: it behaves very much like Mercury in the way it keeps itself together. It does this by surface tension and magnetism; their form itself comes from how the substance naturally wants to shape itself in accordance with holding the energy necessary for performing the functions the light-rings/"cores" do. Because of this, even when encountered with blunt trauma sufficient enough to separate parts of the being, it can draw that lost substance back, and it will naturally form back into the shape that it was. However, it can't shapeshift--though if it loses enough of the substance that it can't get back for some reason (it drifts too far away to magnetically draw back, for example) it can shrink itself to make sure it's proportionally stable. If it loses enough, the energy becomes unstable and the entire being collapses. If other beings find some of this substance, they can absorb it and become bigger, though this also causes them to become somewhat unstable and they can similarly just collapse. When they collapse, the cores disappear, and the energy goes back into the atmosphere (where it originally came from). There was a point at which these beings were manifesting, but ever since they stopped, nobody remembers how they came about. It's hypothesized that first the substance came about, then the ambient energy was attracted to it and they began to shape each other. The beings use this ambient energy to move themselves, others (magnetism), etc.

Because of how the cores sound when active, most languages have given them a name similar to "Aou", but because of the way they look and move (especially when blunt trauma is applied), English has dubbed them with the label "Mercurials". (I'll probably be using them interchangeably and inevitably I'll end up liking one better, heh.)

Ah...I worry I've made the light-rings look too much like the Portal portals, haha.
No. 8430 ID: ea44d9
Oh yeah, I also forgot to mention that because of the glowing nature of the cores (and the fact they can't make noise otherwise), their language revolves around ways of making it glow. It's a bit like morse, but also includes variations like the "gradual fade" and the "sudden stop".

Also lol fuck my typos. "with" not "wish"
No. 8432 ID: 1854db
Electrons are so light I doubt emitting them would actually propel them much at all, unless they themselves were of similar weight to electrons. Physics basically requires you to move mass in the opposite direction that you want to go in order to move anywhere. Equal and opposite reaction and all that.

Now, if they have an atmosphere to deal with there's all sorts of cool stuff they could do with ambient air and (MAYBE, it's really fucking weak) the magnetic field of the earth to move around. Flight, high-tech jet engines, crazy acrobatic stunts... A lightweight high-tech body can do awesome stuff.

>Electrons are so light I doubt emitting them would actually propel them much at all, unless they themselves were of similar weight to electrons.
Depends on the velocity and volume of the electrons. C-fractional velocities and high fluxes could definitely generate thrust. However, 'lots of high-energy electrons' is pretty much the definition of Beta radiation, so it would be extremely unhealthy to be near them.

Charged ion propulsion (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ion_thruster?useskin=monobook), due to the higher mass of the propellant, would be lest unhealthy to be around. Alternatively, as most interaction of them would occur on planets, they could use the geomagnetic field to move about.

(and happy to be of assistance, my fellow drawfag)

I like these things. Don't tell me you need help thinking of a name now..
No. 8438 ID: 0f2e64
I didn't mean the electrons /themselves/ were providing enough propulsion (except when they're utilizing magnetism alone), but rather pushing away whatever matter they're floating in (whether it be air, water, or some other gas or liquid) with the force of the electrons repelling the electrons within that substance. So charged ion propulsion, yeah. I'm not sure if they realize what they're doing to the poor creatures who exist in the substances, ahah. Or...more accurately, they most certainly do, but they probably either don't care or have no alternative, so they just try to affect the inhabitants the least they can. That being said, I think they use the magnetic fields to their advantage when they can, but as I mentioned earlier, they can't so either of these things very well at all in space (perhaps they all link together somehow and use the combined force of their propulsion to move very quickly? It's more likely they have access to a portable wormhole-like thing) so they propel their own matter as a last resort.
Thanks! I'm starting to like em a lot, too--it might be my new mascot thing. I'll see. And they already have a name, the Aou (most languages)/Mercurials (English). But believe me, if they needed a name, you'd be the first person I'd ask, ahah.

Huh, when you first talked about this I was picturing just a pointed hood (with maybe some stylized eyes?) and just some feather-shaped ridges on the arms. Basically a bit more subtle in it's birdlikeness.

Great job, though! I am jelly of your craftsmanship. Also that godawful resolution isn't helping your shortness, but that just might be my phone flipping out.

Wow, none of these pictures fit both criteria of: A. The wings do not look crumpled/bulging as fuck. B. It does not look like I am pointing to my penis.
Well whatever, here's one with what is apparently some kind of radioactive manifestation of an otter, because no murry purry con is complete without the endless train of fursuiters and inevitably I was asked for a picture with one.
Sure thing, I'm happy you are pleased.
Yeah, I wanted to go all-out. My basic idea was "A hoodie where the beak is the visor and the arms/hands are covered in wings, but you can tuck your hands in/out of them." Thanks though. And I am literally that short, at 5'7.

Oh wow, the pictures look okay when I'm looking at them in literally any situation except posting them on TGChan, then they're flipped to shit.

There was also a cool-looking tern dude, he had these massive wings with incredible detail to them.

Sorry I've been away. I'm trying to take a vidya and plotwriting break, hoping it helps with this recent highly persistent irritability. Good news: I finished Portal 2, this thing (still on the odd SebastiAn fixation, I guess), and a shitton of plot for DangerQuest (meaning an update this weekend). Bad news: no plot progress for the quest I consider actually important, but I guess people only care about "frills" anyway, so I feel like most of the "good news" is a wasted effort. Everything I ever do will probably overshadowed by this running joke. Probably not anything I can do but suck it up.
Thanks Over :> I'm a bit worried the colors I used for Fred's jacket are too "pure" and kind of eye-burning, but otherwise I'm pretty proud of this thing.
Whoa, thank you! For real, I appreciate it--but honestly I feel like some of the logos/stencils I've made ( http://tgchan.org/kusaba/draw/src/132028040263.png in particular) are my best work. They showcase simplification, representation, streamlining, and problem solving at its finest. On the other hand, I'm not sure you can really compare the two areas (digital painting VS this kind of graphic design) anyway, since they utilize these completely separate skills. Point is, I think I'm decent at the whole logo/stencil thing, but I'm very happy I'm improving in the digital painting territory. I'm clearly shit at anatomy and keeping things consistent--making sure it all fits together and matches up--so if you say I'm getting better, that really keeps my chin up. Thank you.

By the way! If you want me to make a t-shirt of ANYTHING, just ask. I've set up a RedBubble account for various things ( http://www.redbubble.com/people/danger12h08 ) and if you want me to hard-draw anything for the sake of buying something there, I'll gladly do so. I'll work as hard on it as I usually do with the logos/stencils/very refined lines, I only ask that you actually buy the thing I'm making for you. (When you buy it, I can give you the hi-res image I used to make the shirt. RedBubble also offers the option to have any shirt design available as a sticker, so there's that, too.)

You know what happens when I do, right?

I don't stop taking a break. I go for months without drawing anything, at all. Drawing (not including mindless doodles) has always been a boring and even painful activity, but I do it because I have ideas and other people seem to like seeing them. And I guess I also sometimes like seeing the end product. But mostly, if I don't get my ideas out, I will explode, and that makes the pain worth it--and yet, I still can't do it if I don't force myself to keep doing it, and I must practice the forcing part.

But I understand you're just trying to help and I'm just being a contrary piece of shit. I'm really sorry. I do appreciate what you said. Thank you.

Hahahaha, this was actually the picture that gave me the idea.

fellow drafag, I realised today that this would fit marvelously in the zoological gallery of my yet to come virtual museum.

Would you mind if I included it in my work ?

Whoops, didn't see this until now! Of course you can, I'd be honored :') That's an early sketch of the design though; this is something my friend drew (NOT ME, god I wish though haha) that's sorta halfway between the more recent designs and the one in this thread.

Oh yeah, and its name is now Zusko--somehow got there by fucking around with "scoundrel" and "Quetzalcoatl" (mixing and matching em, switching letters around, etc).

There are many things I would like you to model for me. But I know how hectic your schedule is and I am ashamed to ask for anything, so I'll just say how awesome this is and be on my way.
No. 12276 ID: 9d750c
shoot, I'll try to fit you in my schedule.

Just drop your request on my thread.

I'll just note you my MSN on DA because it's a truckload of things I need to ask before actually going into details / giving refrences, is that okay with you?
No. 12278 ID: 0d3431
DAMN, this is awesome! I mean, for something that takes this much effort I'd've preferred you waited until I drew the final design but if you like it, go ahead I guess, haha! And you should totally model things for Emp, he draws many a cool thing that I'd be stoked to see in even more 3D.

Oh yeah, and a new laced person, who is admittedly Kesha if she was a skeletal ghostmummy. Also--bringing back, naming, and revamping the other Laced.

Hey, I dunno where else to put this, but I wanted to let people know that I had a really uncomfortable drug experience and I need to mentally recuperate for awhile. Because of this, I won't be drawing or maybe even doing anything at all online for awhile. I'm sorry if I'm breaking promises or disappointing people, but I wanted to let you know what's going on. I hope all of you are doing well, and I'll definitely be back at some point, I can confidently promise that much :')

It was a psychedelic, yeah, but not LSD. I wasn't expecting a lot of what happened.
Sure thing.
Yep!! I can't thank you enough, man, you were the best life raft for my brain.
Thank you, I think I have been feeling a bit better. I wanna finish commissions before working on quests and other personal stuff again, though.

Mixed strains are bad, because you never quite know the amount of FUCK they put in it.

Trust me, I've seen a punch bowl spiked with 3 different things.

I was too out of it to realize that if you don't wanna lose something, you gotta /save/ it. But at least there's the stream footage. http://livestre.am/45jpZ

This was me trying to re-draw stuff before I became sober again.

Hey guys. Long time no ... anything, huh?

I am very nearly done with all owed commissions, so I would like to come back to questing soon. I want to make a new quest, start on DangerQuest again (after I re-locate all my notes), and do the thing Mannyventure was a prequel for. I could also start on my webcomic which is all planned out, just sorta neglected cause I haven't had enough time, recently.

Here is a piece I recently completed for Chigui and Cuoqet.
No. 24833 ID: 2d463e
That said, out of all those things, which would you like to see?

The webcomic, the totally new quest, the continuation of DangerQuest, or the next thing in the series Mannyventure is a part of?
No. 24837 ID: 2fd516
Man those all sound like cool things. I don't know what to pick. What's the new quest like?
No. 24838 ID: 0bd34b
No. 24840 ID: 2d463e
The new quest utilizes a plot mechanic/story quirk/idea I've wanted to try out for years. I don't wanna spoil too much, but the plot itself involves a semi-hedonistic ronin who wanders from town to town seeking women and booze. He himself winds up being followed by a mysterious figure.

I may as well describe the other avenues: DangerQuest will be an actual irl musician-based medieval-setting quest with some homebrew d&d-esque mechanics. The webcomic takes place in a "modern magic" setting (a modern world that functions and operates on magic-based technology rather than steam-, silicon-, etc based technology), but I find the premise of the actual plot difficult to summarize concisely. And I want the thing that comes after Mannyventure to be a huge surprise, but I promise it will be cool.

Oh, and I was thinking of making an inappropriate one-shot Space Dandy comic, but I'm shy about actually going through with that.

Alright, so there's a lot on my mind. But you may choose from these. Only the quests will be relevant to this imageboard of course, but I'll let you know about what I'm doing and how it's going.

I'm gonna go with Danger Quest, mainly because I hate the graveyard being as big as it is.
No. 24879 ID: 2d463e
I will try to look around for my DangerQuest notebooks, then, and get to work on starting it back up. If I can't find them after an extended period of time, I will start on the new quest with the plot mechanic I'd like to try. It would be silly/useless to plan to start being active here again but then be impeded in spite of that, heh.
No. 25260 ID: f6c5f9
So...as you could guess, I haven't been able to find the notebooks yet. I've also realized most of my energy is in the webcomic and Space Dandy doujins anyway, so I guess I'll be drifting off again after all. However I'll wanna stream every now n then and I'll be sure to post the link in IRC!
No. 25261 ID: 2fd516
Ah well. See you on the flipside!
