At some point a few days ago-as you probably noticed-the CSS and everything with it including the flags and banners-got BTFO presumably by a server side software update. I am in the process of trying to make things right but I'm admittedly having a h*ck of a time getting certain things correct. I'm going to have to call it for the day as I'd already spent an inordinate amount of time failing to put the element inspector to good use, but I'm optimistic things should be right as rain by this time tomorrow.
Feel free to use this thread to offer general suggestions, make or request flags (32 x 32) or banners (300 x 100), or otherwise shitpost to your heart's content.

Is there someone wants to donate this book so I can disassemble the spine and scan it? I used to have this book but it went missing when I move out from my old apartment to a smaller room. It already took up space before so a digital copy would be nice but for some reason, there's no ebook from the official publisher. I've been searching every nook of chans and normet socials and none of them have the scanned book so I guess I need to start it myself then. I'll give my contact if someone interested to participate in this because I have the access to an library archive scanner.

Connecting writers to artists (and general shilling)
I'm really impressed by the work on this board that you guys put out, and I'd like to be that "for exposure" asshole and get some of you to work for notpockets or only small amounts 'cause I'm a neet like you. Long story short, I'm a failed writer with a couple of short stories that could be made into comics and some stories that are too long for that but I'd like to see scenes/characters drawn from. If anyone is looking for inspiration or something to work on, I'm looking for someone who can draw better than the stick figures that I can manage. You can then post 'em on your social media and show off your work, just credit me as the writer.
The "please draw my" characters come from a medieval fantasy, a 20th century cold war story with some fantasy/sci-fi elements, and a worlds-in-collision that mixes up genres but is heavy on sci-fi and medieval fantasy. If someone wants to do an entire story, my short stories include a magical girl parody that could be done in manga style, a D&D parody that could be done in a naturalist / classic fantasy style, a Teen Titans fanfic that could be done in TT2003 style, and a couple of ideas for rebooting Fearless Fosdick.
If the crowgirl artist is around and available, I'd like you to draw one scene. One of the non-crow pics you did makes me think you'd be good for it.
Another scene that I'm willing to commission would include fog effects, ice, lighting on different textures (metal, ice, cloth, skin). I'd like it done well so I'm willing to pay for it.
So, how do we do this? Should we communicate offsite so a story is new to readers when the artwork is finished, or should I post a script online and send volunteers to it? Should I throw out a character description a week and ask volunteers to draw them and post them at the end of the week, like the theme thread? If you take commissions or know someone who does, how do I contact you? If the mods don't want this sort of thing on the board, I won't be offended if you kill the thread. Are there other places where a request like this might be welcome?

What are some good books about getting into traditional painting and color after you've
traditional realist drawing?
I was dumb enough to try and hone in my drawing skills for years without focus on painting. Now that I've gotten into it, my under drawings translate horribly, I cannot properly mix skin tones, the verdaccio comes through too much on the surface, and even when doing non traditional coloring I still fuck up the form.
I need them now more than ever since every passing day seems less and less likely to offer some sort of golden path to a art academy or university for an MFA. I'm legitimately scared help.

What are some games, online or not, to practice drawing on? Pic related, but it doesn't have to be similar.

This board represents a very small gathering of artists pursuing artistic self-actualization through a combination of labored study and strategic visual shitposting. We welcome all those interested in discovering the bittersweet struggle of artistic improvement for themselves to take up the pencil, the pen, the paintbrush or the p'tablet to join us on this board as friends. Please understand though that coming here expecting to solicit free or "cheap" work from our community is frowned upon-what you might flippantly spend seconds requesting can represent hours of work informed by years of study or experience to grant. Those enormous tits? Someone cried themselves to sleep trying to get them just right. That perfect dumptruck ass? Only possible through hundreds of highly detailed studies of the pelvis bone, gluteal muscles and the related fat deposits-to say nothing of the impassioned observation of countless references in extremely high resolution at all angles (all done purely for professional purposes of course).
A few of us may delight in participating in request threads on other boards on our own free time and on our own terms. Doing so on our own, sparsely populated board however is a totally one sided affair where the artist can expect as payment for their labors a pitiful handful of (You)s, coupled with further outstretched hands anticipating the delivery of more requests. It's nothing personal so please don't take it as such, but as it stands I will not allow requestmaking to find a permanent home on this board-we instead choose to reach out to any such people and invite them to take their first steps on their own journey, to seize the power within themselves to answer their own artistic longing with decisive and well-informed action rather than gracelessly pleading out to we few strangers in the night:
>"please help me masturbate"
I hope you understand but if you take issue with anything I said-whether you're an artist/regular or someone just passing through-I welcome any further discussion on the subject to be directed to this thread for now.
